    I believe it was the same horse, its the same one thats been doing it for the last few years, due to the training aspect of it

They say he patrolled his property at night in his pickup with his rifle frequently all night long. It took him two years to build his underground bunker, working on it alternating overnight hours. Had weapons, bombs and food for the long hall in the bunker. A short while ago he was angry at neighbors for their trailer putting ruts in dirt road with their trailer, he shot at them. I believe his court date was the next day after he kidnapped the child. He boarded the bus of school kids and demanded two children, bus driver got in his way and ordered the kids out emergency exit, so he shot bus driver and grabbed the boy who reportedly fainted while others escaped. My guess the trigger was the court date.

    My question still is why once he shot at neighbors they didn't confiscate guns until court ruled on shooting. That is how it works up here, maybe South has different laws?
    Dothan is where Chris lives, isn't it?

    Maybe, maybe not. I've had multiple conversations with DH about this and even after getting two degrees I'm not 100% set on what I want to do. I love doing video, researching stuff and I also love Disney. I've started on working as a Disney travel agent and am planning on going back to school to get certified in travel planning. My dream job is actually to be helping Lou with what he does, the podcast, videos, planning stuff, researching stuff....doubt that position will ever be available....

    Re: The RT Thread Part V

    I hate that the fact that I have a Masters Degree makes it seem like I'm over qualified for certain positions. Yes I'm educated, but if you looked PAST that on my resume you'd see that experience wise I'm grossly UNDER qualified. I need to get my foot in the door somewhere, even if it is as a secretary. If it's the right company I could work my way UP, not OUT they seem to assume.

    Take this in the spirit that it is given because you know I believe everyone should be educated, I don't care if you are just well read, college, trade school, something. Try dumbing down your resume if you want to go for an entry level position. Sadly right now many employers are only looking at resumes of the employed and not wanting to bother with the "whys" a candidate isn't employed and why nobody else is hiring that candidate. You might get a job and then use your real resume to continue to look for a better position. A thought.

    There were more adult diapers sold in Japan in 2012 than baby diapers.

    Re: The RT Thread Part V

    This weekends SNL comedy skit that makes fun of Thailand’s booming "lady of the evening" industry has angered the government, which is trying to block videos of the sketch on the internet.


    “We’re working with the foreign ministry to let the US know it is offensive and we have asked our information ministry to remove the clip.”

    Me,<------Change the industry then Minister, it isn't the comedy clip that needs to be removed, it is the booming industry! Jeepers.
