I know how it feels to bite the bullet because i read Mary Sanchez. I understand when people get old and their partner dies then the other dies shortly after. I know young people become depressed and can't cope. But reading Mary Sanchez makes me want to jump in front of a toy train down town.

If it helps to save your life, just keep in mind that if you do jump in front of the train you're likely to be counted in the ridership numbers.
They need EVERY one!
Live long and prosper!

"Mary Sanchez: Fast and Furious operation fails Brian Terry ... again"


Although I think Narley Snatcheeze is a freaking nutball drama queen she did get something right. The ATF stepped on their dicks all over the place in this Fast & Furious Operation. What I can not grasp is why the (Obamy) Attorney Genera; (Holder) could ever authorize an operation that directed people, including Federal Agents, to commit felony crimes for the purpose of collecting information. What is further frustrating is why no one was ever appropriately charged or investigated.

It is just incredible that we live in a country where someone who had a domestic assault charge when they were 14 years old can land in prison for even handling a gun yet we have the ATF sending guns to criminals illegally across boarders and this is just standard operating procedure? Jesus Christ is it past time to clean up these out of control bureaucrats and drain the damn swamp or what?
