That should have been considered a capital offense.

Have you ever considered that perhaps it's your security software that has been infected? Hey, you never know.

TRUE STORY FROM...
"THE HOUSTON HERALD NEWSPAPER"
IN HOUSTON , TEXAS
MARCH 5th, 2009

~

Last Thursday Night Around Midnight, A Woman From Houston , Texas Was Arrested,
Jailed, And Charged With Manslaughter For Shooting A Man 6 Times In The Back
As He Was Running Away With Her Purse. ~

The Following Monday Morning,
The Woman Was Called In Front Of The Arraignment Judge, Sworn In,
And Asked To Explain Her Actions.
The Woman Replied, "I Was Standing At The Corner Bus Stop
For About 15 Minutes, Waiting For The Bus To Take Me Home After Work.
I Am A Waitress At A Local Cafe...
I Was There Alone, So I Had My Right Hand On My Pistol,
That Was In My Purse, That Was Hung Over My Left Shoulder.

All Of A Sudden I Was Being Spun Around Hard To My Left.
As I Caught My Balance, I Saw A Man
Running Away From Me With My Purse.
I Looked Down At My Right Hand And I Saw That My Fingers Were Wrapped Tightly
Around My Pistol. The Next Thing I Remember Is Saying Out Loud,
"No Way Punk! Your Not Stealing My Pay Check And Tips."
~ I Raised My Right Hand, Pointed My Pistol
At The Man Running Away From Me With My Purse,
And Squeezed The Trigger Of My Pistol 6 Times!
~
When Asked By The Arraignment Judge,
"Why Did You Shoot The Man 6 Times?
~
The Woman Replied Under Oath,

"Because, When I Pulled The Trigger The 7th Time, It Only Went Click."
~
The Woman Was Acquitted Of All Charges. She Was Back At Work, At The Cafe, The Next Day!

Now that's Gun Control....

I'd give more credibility to this if it wasn't for the fact that the Houston Herald is a newspaper in Houston, MO

Comment: "OUR MOST BELOVED AMERICA'S" SATANIC RELIGIONISM!
Most Reverently, please submit This Most Patriotic and Most Faithful
Message, also personally and specially, to A Nationally Significant and
Patriotic Friend. Thank you!
“OUR MOST BELOVED AMERICA’S” MOST CROOKEDLY SATANIC ANTI-AMERICAN
POLITIKING AND RELIGIONISM!
Most Reverently, This Most Earnest Patriotic Appeal was also submitted to
All The Presidents of The American Universities, and to Their Provosts –
submitted to both personally.
UNIVERSAL POLITICKING AND RELIGIONISM!
This Most Loving Prayer is also addressed to all Top Politicking and
Religious Leaders of TheWorld – Most Faithfully!
This is about The Most Criminal, World-Wide POLITICKING AND RELIGIONISM –
Ever!
All that Our Whole Wide World has ever needed, and still presently needs,
foremost and more than ever, is A TRULY AMERICAN NATIONAL INCORRUPT
REEVALUATION!
“HAPPY HOLIDAYS”!!! “MERRY CHRISTMAS”!!! “HAPPY NEW YEAR”!!! “HAPPY NEW
CENTURY”!!!
ALMIGHTY GOD’S “NUCLEAR” WORLD’S TRUE AMERICAN DEMOCRACY; THAT IS,
UNIVERSAL INDIVIDUAL
EQUAL HUMAN OPPORTUNITY TO ACHIEVE ALMIGHTY-GOD-GIVEN HUMAN RIGHTS (HIS
“BEST GIFTS -
NO MORE AND NO LESS”) shall never exist for us in “Our America”, and in
our “Free Nuclear World”, UNTIL BOTH OF GOD’S MOST CRUCIAL DETERMINANTS –
UNIVERSAL BASIC FUNCTIONAL LITERACY AND “GOOD SAMARITAN” HEALTH
INSURANCE – are Legislatively COMPELLED (CONSTITUTIONALLY) as a
Fully-Punishing TRULY HUMANITARIAN CRIMINAL LAW; that is until Our
Insatiable Ultra Filthy-Wealthy CORPORATIST “American” Government so give
The True Example, OF SUCH A SACRED UNIVERSALLY HUMAN EQUAL OPPORTUNITY,
for the sake of Our Most Exploited and Most Suffering Illiterate and Sick
“American” World!
Almighty God did not write HIS BIBLE just to “Inspire” The Implacable
Religionist “Sacrosanct” Church-Like Corporations of This World to use IT
as toilet paper – that is, to use IT as Such a Globalized, Religionist,
Materialist, PIOUSLY MUM, AND SO ULTIMATELY EQUALLY SUICIDAL-TERRORIST,
SUBLIMINAL INHUMAN EXPLOITATION!
Why “THE TRULY UNIVERSAL CHURCH” – as “FREE AND SEPARATE FROM THE STATE” –
NEVER TAKE ALL OF THESE AS ITS TRUE DAILY PREACHING INITIATIVE – AS ITS
TRUE RELIGIOUS LEADERS DID BEFORE???!!! BECAUSE THEY ARE NOT ANYMORE “THE
TRUE SERVANTS OF ALMIGHTY GOD” (AS THEY SO FERVENTLY CLAIM) BUT OF THE
GOVERNMENTAL “MOST COMFORTABLE” RAPACIOUS CORPORATIST MOST INHUMAN WORLD
POLITICS OF EXPLOITATION!!!
WHY ABSOLUTELY NOBODY SPEAKS ANYTHING – SPECIALLY AT THE MOST IMPORTANT
ELECTIONS’ TIME – ABOUT DENOUNCING AND UPROOTING ONCE AND FOR ALL THE
HIGHEST LEVEL OF OUR “AMERICAN” ILLITERACY AND LACK OF TRULY DEMOCRATIC
UNIVERSAL “GOOD SAMARITAN” ALSO INDISPENSABLY MOST BASIC HEALTH INSURANCE!
THE TRUTHFULLNES EVER MISSING IN ALL OF OUR SUPER-POLITICAL SPEECHES,
ALWAYS EVER PRETENDING TO “HONOR” OUR MOST BELOVED AMERICA – AND MOST
SORELY MISSING FOR OUR AMERICA’S SALVATION – IS THE TRULY POLITICAL, TRULY
RELIGIOUS, AND TRULY PATRIOTIC DEMOCRATIC INSPIRATION!
WHY WE ARE SO SILANTLY MOST OBSTINATE AND MOST ANTIPATRIOTIC!!!???
MAY WE ALL TRUE AMERICANS TRULY PRAY SO THAT WE ALL TRUE SOLID AMERICANS
REALLY ENABLE ALMIGHTY GOD TO EVER BLESS (SAVE) OUR MOST BELOVED TRUE
AMERICA!!!
OTHERWISE, ANY OTHER “CRIME” OR “ABORTION” IS AN INNOCENT BY-PRODUCT!!!

Comment: PLEASE PLEASE Do NOT DISMISS THIS AS JUST RUMOR or FOOLISHNESS -I
Have seen MUCH Of It MYSELF
I AM NOT TRYING To CAUSE PANIC or FEAR= I Just Want People To Know What
is Out THERE & Probably COMING at US==
IF=GOD DOES NOT RETURN FIRST==My Faith is Based On WHAT CHRIST SAID about
How He Will Protect HIS PEOPLE
The Article Below Mine Also Describes How There are Tens of Thousands of
Chinese Troops ""STANDING BY" at Our North& South BORDERS
BUT My Article Describes the More Than 40,000 Foreign TROOPS Who Are
Already HERE IN AMERICA and Just Waiting

I Have seen The Ones Which I Write ABout =So I Know Them To Be TRUE
FACTS
The Former Long Beach Calif NAVY PORT which We Simply GAVE OVER To
CHINA Supposedly for Bringing in The Massive amounts of Goods
10 Years ago
ALSO Has 2 Chinese Aircraft Carriers and a Heavy Cruiser as Well as Many
Many Smaller Ships Like the Destroyer which I Was On
The Total of CHINESE TROOPS=NOT SAILORS-BUT ACTUAL ARMED TROOPS= IN Long
Beach Harbor is Over 18,000
Also At 2 Former Japanese WW2 Internment Camps That Were REBUILT 2 Yrs AGo
There are Now Thousands of RUSSIAN TROOPS= One Such CAMP is In COLORADO
The Other is In LOUISANA
Each Have Over 12,000 Troops and About Half of The Louisana Troops are
UNITED NATIONS TROOPS of Many Nations
WHY Are THEY THERE??
BECAUSE A REVOLUTION is SOON= COMING == When Our GOVT Tries To FORCE US
Into The ONE WORLD GOVT
Millions of AMERICANS Will STAND and FIGHT =AND Most of OUR Own MILITARY
Will REFUSE TO SHOOT LOYAL AMERICANS
BUT THESE FOREIGN TROOPS will GLADLY Do It
WE CITIZENS Will LOSE Sad To Say Because We Are NOT Organized Like
Their Army is
HERE'S A FRIGHTENING THING WHICH I ALSO SAW ==8 YRS AGO
Myself and A Friend Robert who Lives in OCALA Were Going to Go Fishing in
Lake George Next To The OCALA Natnl. Forrest
But First He Said That FIRST That He Wanted to Show Me Something
We Followed a Railroad Side Track Going Way Way Back into The Woods

Where I SAW A String of 6 METAL BOX CARS that Have 3 Floors
They Have Some Opening at The Sides=For Air = Like Cattle Cars
He and His Family Had Been HIRED as WELDERS To Help Build Them
Every Floor Had over 2 Dozen Metal ""Picnic Style Tables With 8 sets of
Chains & Handcuffs on each side
That's 16 Prisoners= times 24 tables= Times 3 Floors = Times 6 Box Cars
These will be used as PRISONER SHIPPING Boxcars When the Revolution
Comes
Our Wonderful GOVT. Knows That Many LOYAL AMERICANS will Fight against
the WORLD GOVT TAKE OVER
So these FOREIGN ARMIES will Capture Us Quickly and Ship Us to Only GOD
KNOWS WHERE Maybe a Death Camp
Robert Said Me He was told that there are over 40 other such Locations of
"PRISONER Trains" Across America
Just Waiting For ANY MILITIA PEOPLE Who Try To DEFEND AMERICA

Not "Chinese," silly Billy! "The Chinese." "The Chinese" are very much scarier than just "Chinese."

If by Homo you mean a member of the species Homo Sapiens and by sexual you mean "has or does engage in sexual intercourse" then you might be correct.
