More than 14 people were killed and 17 others were wounded today in a mass shooting in San Bernadino. As of 8 pm (EST), police have stopped the vehicle and two of the suspects are dead. A third suspect is still unaccounted for.
The dark colored SUV was stopped by police and a barrage of bullets blew out all the windows in the vehicle, killing two of the three suspects. The vehicle was stopped about a mile from the original crime scene.
One of the suspects is believed to have been in the original meeting where the shootings occurred and left angrily.

Obama, as usual and without any solid information as to the details of the mass shooting, immediately responded, "We should never think that this is something that just happens in the ordinary course of events, because it doesn't happen with the same frequency in other countries."
This is true unless you count the two mass shootings in France this year, among others. Obama is quick on the draw when it comes to gun control with the exception of his hometown of Chicago, the murder capital of the world.

Printable Things I Never Told You: 1) Vegetarians live up to nine years longer than meat-eaters. Nine horrible, tedious, meaningless, worthless, meatless years. 2) Did you know that deer live an average of 15 years in the wild, but can live up to 87 in a condominium? 3) Nothing says I have faith in God like the bullet proof glass on the Pope's car. 4) Whenever I get a "Final Notice" letter from a bill collector, I assume this concludes our business transaction. 5) My son asked what it is like to be married, so I deleted all the music on his ipod except for one song.....and that's five !

The AREA 51 Retirement Home Bar And Grill: An elderly couple had dinner at another couple's house and after eating, the wives left the table and went into the kitchen.
The two gentlemen were talking, and one said, "Last night we went out to a new restaurant and it was really great. I would recommend it very highly." The other man said, "What is the name of the restaurant?"
The first man thought and thought and finally said, "What is the name of that flower you give to someone you love? You know... the one that's red and has thorns?"
The other man said, "Do you mean a rose?" The man said, "Yes, that's the one." He then turned towards the kitchen and yelled, "Hey Rose, what's the name of that restaurant we went to last night?"

The Hits Just Keep On Coming: My thanks to my pal Skip for his contribution to today's stories.
A biker stopped by the local Harley Shop to have his bike repaired. They couldn't do the work while he waited and so, since he didn't live far from the shop, he decided to walk home.
On the way home he stopped at the hardware store and bought a bucket and an anvil. He stopped at the feed store and picked up a couple of chickens and a goose. However, he had a problem. How to carry his entire purchases home.
The feed store owner said, "Why don't you put the anvil in the bucket, carry the bucket in one hand, put a chicken under each arm and carry the goose in your other hand?" The biker said, "Hey, thanks!" and out the door he went.
In the parking lot he was approached by a little old lady who told him she was lost and asked if he could tell her the way to 1603 Mockingbird Lane. The biker said, "As a matter of fact, I live on Mockingbird Lane. We can take a short cut down this alley and be there in no time".
The little old lady looked him over cautiously and then said, "I am a lonely widow without a husband to defend me. How do I know that when we get in the alley you won't hold me up against the wall, pull up my skirt and ravish me?"
The biker said, "Holy smoke, lady! I'm carrying a bucket, an anvil, two chickens, and a goose. How in Hell could I possibly hold you up against a wall and do that?"
The lady said, "Set the goose down, cover him with the bucket, put the anvil on top of the bucket and I'll hold the chickens."
The Pope went on vacation for a few days to visit the rugged mountains of Alaska. He was cruising along the campground in the Pope Mobile when he heard a frantic commotion just at the edge of the woods.
He found a Democrat wearing shorts, sandals, a "Vote for Obama" hat and a "Save the Trees" shirt. The man was screaming and struggling frantically, thrashing all about and trying to free himself from the grasp of a 800-pound grizzly bear.
As the Pope watched in horror, a group of Republican loggers wearing "Go Trump" shirts came racing up. One quickly fired a .44 magnum slug right into the bear's chest.
The two men pulled the semiconscious Democrat from the bear's grasp. Then using baseball bats, the three loggers finished off the bear. Four of the men dragged the dead grizzly onto the bed of their pickup truck while another placed the injured Democrat in the back seat.
As they began to leave, the Pope summoned all of them over to him and proclaimed, "I give you my blessing for your brave actions! I have heard there was bitter hatred between Republican loggers and Democratic environmental activists, but now I've seen with my own eyes that this is not true."
As the Pope drove off, one logger asked his buddies, "Who the heck was the guy in the beanie?" Another replied, "Dude, that was the Pope. He's in direct contact with Heaven and has access to all wisdom."
The logger said, "Well, he may have access to all wisdom, but he doesn't know shit about bear hunting! By the way, is the bait still alive or do we need to go back to Chicago and get another one?"
That's it for today, my little elves. Remember, marriage is betting someone half of your stuff that you'll love them forever. I'm heading over to AREA 51 for happy hour.
