If capitalism promotes innovation and creativity then why aren't scientists and artists the richest people in a capitalist nation?

Robert has not been "christened" - he has been "maoed".

Good call - the good Chairman did have an unhealthy obsession with what came out of his rear end. I bet he nearly fainted when he saw little brownie robert peeking up at him from the bowl

""And the spa is less than a mile from a hotel where a gunman opened fire during a Living Church of God service
in 2005. Seven people were killed and four wounded in that shooting.""

We have so many mass gun murders in the USA that this one happened within a mile of another mass murder a few
years earlier.
Let's see... should I go to the spa or go to church...
You have to ask yourself one question... do I feel lucky. Well do ya punk? That's life in the gun happy USA.

Shooting at spa in Wisconsin: 4 dead, including gunman, police say
By Dylan Stableford, Yahoo! News | The Lookout – October 21, 2012

A shooting at a spa near a Brookfield, Wis., mall on Sunday left four dead--including the shooter--and four others
wounded, police said. The suspected gunman, 45-year-old Radcliffe Haughton, of Brown Deer, Wis., was later found
dead inside.

The shooting occurred at the Azana Spa across the street from the Brookfield Square Mall at approximately
11:15 a.m. local time, police said. Inside the spa, police found what appeared to be an improvised explosive device
(IED), and a bomb squad was called in as officials worked to clear the two-story building.

"Our entire operation is focused on locating the suspect," Brookfield Police Chief Daniel Tushaus said at a press
conference earlier Sunday.

A spokeswoman for Froedtert Memorial Hospital told the Associated Press that said four shooting victims were being
treated for non-life threatening injuries at the hospital.

Authorities did not immediately release a motive. But according to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, a restraining
order requested by Haughton's wife was issued against him on Thursday in Milwaukee County Circuit Court. And
according to WISN-TV, she worked at the spa.

Online court records showed that Haughton "was not allowed to have firearms and was directed to deliver firearms
to the sheriff," the Journal Sentinel said. "The order does not indicate if that happened."

Following the shooting, the mall and a nearby country club were placed on lockdown. SWAT, FBI, fire and rescue
officials responded to the shooting, and a Flight for Life helicopter landed in the mall's parking lot. Police
and tactical units conducted a sweep of surrounding businesses.

A representative from the Department of Homeland Security arrived on the scene to offer investigative assistance,
while police and FBI--assisted by a bomb squad--conducted a search of Haughton's home.

Earlier, a reporter from the Journal Sentinal spoke to the suspect's father, Radcliffe Haughton Sr., who said he
told his son last week, "Don't do anything stupid."

Meanwhile, employees at the spa were asked to not speak to the media. "It is so important that things get figured
out and settled first," a post on Azana Spa's Facebook page read. "Please continue to pray for all of those
involved."

The suspect did not appear to have a presence on Facebook, but a Google Plus page for a Radcliffe Haughton
includes a photo of a man who looks like Haughton displaying what appears to be a gun. A LinkedIn page lists
Haughton as the owner of "Haughton International Corporation."

Rep. Paul Ryan, campaigning as the Republican vice presidential nominee in Iowa on Sunday, said he was "shocked
and saddened" by the news out of his home state.

"As our community continues to heal from August's tragic violence, our thoughts and prayers are with today's
victims and their loved ones," Ryan said in a statement. "Our gratitude also goes to the first responders who
rushed to save lives and secure the scene. We will not allow the evil responsible for this heartbreaking event
to triumph over the spirit of the people of Wisconsin. I ask all Americans to keep those affected by this event
in their hearts, minds, and prayers today."

Sunday's shooting comes less than three months after Wade Michael Page, an Army veteran with white supremacist
ties, opened fire at a Sikh temple in Oak Creek, Wis., killing six and injuring three others before shooting
himself.

And the spa is less than a mile from a hotel where a gunman opened fire during a Living Church of God service
in 2005. Seven people were killed and four wounded in that shooting.

A common occurance in the USA punctuates the Memorial Day holiday weekend.

On an average day in the USA 30-40 are killed by gun violence.

This is what you get for hanging on to a hopelessly outdated constitution; a nation that favors capitalist criminals

taking advantage of those living and feverish murderers putting the working class stooges out of their misery.

(Reuters) - A gunman randomly firing from his pickup truck killed one person and wounded five, including the sheriff of Concho County, Texas, on Sunday before the suspect was killed in a shootout with law enforcement, officials said.   

    Authorities recovered an assault rifle, a handgun and hundreds of rounds of ammunition from the suspect, who was said to be 23 years old and from North Carolina. The name was withheld pending notification of relatives, the Texas Department of Public Safety said in a statement.
The statement identified the dead victim as Alicia Torres, 41, who was shot dead in her car, the statement said.
The Texas Rangers, local law enforcement and Texas Parks and Wildlife were investigating multiple scenes in Concho County, about 250 miles southwest of Dallas, following the early morning shooting spree.
The first incident took place about 4:30 a.m. when the suspect opened fire on vehicle near Eden, wounding a woman, who was later hospitalized in San Angelo, the statement said.
The suspect wounded two more people a short time later as they sat in their vehicle outside a convenience store in Brady, and then returned to Eden, where he fired on another vehicle and wounded another person. Those three were treated and released.
About 6 a.m., Torres was found shot to death in her car in Eola.
Some 15 minutes later, Concho County Sheriff Richard Doane encountered the suspect on a highway north of Eden. The sheriff was wounded and taken to a San Angelo hospital with non-life threatening injuries, the statement said.
The gunman was killed in a shootout with a Highway Patrol trooper and game warden who arrived to assist the sheriff, the statement said.
