A man with a bow and arrow was shot by police Tuesday morning after he carjacked a woman in Atlanta, crashed the stolen vehicle in a suburb in a neighboring county and pointed the weapon at an officer, authorities said. Atlanta police officers responded to a report of a stolen vehicle in the 1400 block of West Peachtree Street at 6:13 a.m., according to the department. They found a woman who said a man armed with the bow and arrow took off in her vehicle.


This is what happens when bow stores are allowed to sell quivers with 30 arrows.

Never enter a gun fight with a bow and arrow. Asked how it worked out at Wounded Knee for Native Americans.

A modern compound bow, with a really trained user can be amazingly accurate, and quite deadly. However, how many are that good with one, and certainly they are unhandy and slow as hell compared to a rifle or handgun. Pretty dumb.

In WWII, there was a British officer by the name of “Mad” Jack Churchill who always carried a longbow and a broad sword into battle. Reportedly he was the only person in the war who killed an enemy combatant with a bow and arrow. However, I wouldn’t recommend that method in modern combat.

Over twenty years ago when I lived in Louisiana there was an incident where a resident shot a thief trying to steal his car with a cross bow. They charged the resident for using a dangerous weapon and deadly force on the thief. A bow can be dangerous. Wait for it bow and arrow legislation will follow.

A pit bull once owned by canine trainer Cesar Millan mauled one of Queen Latifah’s pets to death, and the reality TV star tried to cover up the attack by instructing his staff to tell the actress that her dog was hit by a car, according to a recently filed lawsuit. The alleged incident is one of the more shocking revelations cited in the legal action against the “Dog Whisperer” star, brought in California by a former gymnast who claims the same dog attacked her in 2017 and ruined her career, TMZ reported.

The parents of a beloved high school football player were shocked by how doctors allegedly treated their unvaccinated son when he was admitted with a severe case of COVID-19. The teen later died from complications of the virus. Tyler Fairley, a 17-year-old from Douglasville, Georgia, was suffering from COVID-19. His parents rushed him to Douglas Wellstar Medical Center twice, according to WSB-TV. The doctors at the hospital seemed as though they "didn't care" that Fairley was suffering, according to his mother Tosha Nettles.

WASHINGTON (Reuters) -The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) is set on Tuesday to recommend fully vaccinated Americans wear masks indoors in at least some instances, as the more highly transmissible Delta variant of the coronavirus has led to a surge in infections, sources said. That would mark a reversal of the CDC's announcement in May that prompted millions of vaccinated Americans to shed their face coverings. The CDC will announce revised mask guidance but the specifics of when the agency will recommend fully vaccinated Americans wear masks indoors are not fully clear, the sources said.

Rahim Sivji leaves the register, walks back to the stockroom and sits on a waist-high pillar of Sprite. He leans his elbow on a slightly taller stack of Coke and takes a deep breath. Sivji has owned this Exxon station at the corner of Flat Shoals and Gresham roads — southwestern DeKalb County, not far from East Atlanta proper — for more than two decades. He’s still there seven days a week, does a little bit of everything. He says he wants to die working. But on this warm day in late February, he says he’s under contract to sell the store.

The Oregon Department of Education (ODE) recently encouraged teachers to register for training that encourages "ethnomathematics" and argues, among other things, that White supremacy manifests itself in the focus on finding the right answer. An ODE newsletter sent last week advertises a Feb. 21 "Pathway to Math Equity Micro-Course," which is designed for middle school teachers to make use of a toolkit for "dismantling racism in mathematics." The event website identifies the event as a partnership between California's San Mateo County Office of Education, The Education Trust-West and others.

We’re trying to think of something nice to say about 2020. OK, here goes: Nobody got killed by the murder hornets. As far as we know. That’s pretty much it. In the past, writing these annual reviews, we have said harsh things about previous years. We owe those years an apology. Compared to 2020, all previous years, even the Disco Era, were the golden age of human existence. This was a year of nonstop awfulness, a year when we kept saying it couldn’t possibly get worse, and it always did.

WASHINGTON (AP) — President-elect Joe Biden turned 78 on Friday. In exactly two months, he'll take the reins of a politically fractured nation facing the worst public health crisis in a century, high unemployment and a reckoning on racial injustice. As he wrestles with those issues, Biden will be attempting to accomplish another feat: Demonstrate to Americans that age is but a number and he's up to the job. Biden will be sworn in as the oldest president in the nation’s history, displacing Ronald

Mark Milley and Gen. Frank McKenzie were pressed on Biden’s decision to fully withdraw, and specifically asked if they recommended the president leave any troops in Afghanistan following Aug. 31.

In an interview with “Good Morning America” on Tuesday, former President Barack Obama commented on the border crisis in Del Rio, Texas. Obama stated that the crisis at the Del Rio border is “heartbreaking” and that the system, overall, “is dysfunctional.” “It’s the reason I proposed comprehensive immigration reform. It’s the reason Joe Biden proposed it during his administration, and it’s something that is long overdue,” Obama stated, according to GMA. The former president went on to say the situation at Del Rio is a reminder that more work needs to be done and that President Biden understands the situation better than anyone. “As big-hearted as he is,

As we previously reported, Joe Biden is going all-in with this ridiculous claim, suddenly, that his $3.5 trillion budget reconciliation bill costs “zero dollars.” He wasn’t alone in trying to push this claim. As we pointed out, he had Sen. Cory Booker (D-NJ) parroting the claim. Now, other Democrats have jumped aboard the narrative train including Rep. Pramila Jayapal (D-WA), the head of the Congressional Progressive Caucus. Rep. Alan Lowenthal (D-CA) signed on board as well. Here’s White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki trying to sell the same claim. But, of course, what would a Democratic agenda narrative be without help from their buddies

The Hill, which often serves as a mouthpiece for Democrat press releases, has written an article stating that “Democrats see Harris as a major player in midterms.” When it comes to Harris’s moribund reputation, Dems want us to think of Jesus raising Lazarus from the dead but saving Harris is more like Mel Brook’s Young Frankenstein and “Abby Normal’s brain.” Kamala’s lack of national viability made itself known during the Democrat primaries in 2019 when Harris dropped out without even breaking the 4% barrier in the polls and with zero delegates.

Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Gen. Mark Milley got into a heated exchange with Sen. Tom Cotton (R-Ark.) over the advice he gave President Biden on troop levels in Afghanistan – with Milley rejecting the idea he should resign over policy differences. Milley, who holds degrees from Princeton, Columbia, and the Navy War College, and who commanded international forces in Afghanistan, bristled at the idea – even as he essentially confirmed he advised Biden against a withdrawal of all US troops from the country.'I understand that you're the principle military advisor. That you advise. You don't decide, the president decides.

Joe Biden is the worst president we’ve had since the last worst president we had: Barack Obama, who was the worst president since Jimmy Carter. It has escaped no one’s notice. Covid lockdowns and mandates; the destructive, inhumane, callow, disgusting bug-out of Afghanistan; generational theft-level spending; and tyrannical diktats have touched everyone – except Hollywood and D.C., naturally. Turn that flag upside down, Australia here we come. Where people have been “allowed” to congregate they have made their disgust with Joe Biden well known in the coarsest and unsociable of ways – and they’ve been cheered for it! Nearly everywhere you look, people in large groups and small are chanting “F*** Joe Biden!”

During his campaign for the Presidential Elections 2020 Joe Biden left some Twitter users queasy after a clip from the campaign trail showed him discussing children playing with his leg hair. During the campaign speech, Biden, 77, described how children used to play with his blond leg hairs in the swimming pool while telling a story about his time working as a lifeguard. Well, with that disgusting video we found out about Joe’s hairy legs but it seems that at least his hands appear to look less hairy back in January when he got his first vaccine shot.
