Social Services Acuse Parents of Child Abuse -- Proven Wrong, Ends in Suicide
William "Dave" O'Shell, distraught over charges of child abuse that were being leveled against him, snapped on June 30, 2008, killing his wife, Tiffany O'Shell, in their Henderson, Colo., home before taking his own life.
Just a few weeks earlier, their green-eyed, 3-month-old daughter, Alyssa, had been placed in a foster home because x-rays revealed 11 broken bones and doctors assumed that she had been beaten.
But they were wrong.
On the same day as the murder-suicide, a doctor at Colorado Children's Hospital suspected something else and was later proved right: Alyssa had a rare genetic disorder that caused her bones to fracture -- one that authorities had confused for abuse....

You sound just like my dad, describing Bush 41, who he continues to this day to refer to as a "turkey", because he (Bush 41) eliminated COLAs in my dad's pensions and raised his taxes, after promising not to.
If you want to make voters like Jim and my dad angry, "hit" them in their money-belts. If you want to make them happy, find a way to channel money (whether theirs or someone else's) in their direction.
On a more serious note, we all have to be ware of the fine line between merely being concerned about money and loving or becoming obsessed with money. Sometimes it's hard to tell the difference.

So you frankly admit it's about nothing more than unrighteous mammon. How much you love it, while blaming other people for getting rich! You played the market (obviously trying to get rich) & lost, & found Bush a convenient scapegoat, perhaps to avoid taking personal responsibility for your failures.
This also explains why you want taxpayers to cover your expenses. You suppose they have too much money, while you don't have enough. That's the ethic of a thief, not a Christian.
No, Neil, something almost as bad (I've always been fond of the dogs that I've had) He killed my interest rates and stock values, leaving me in a not very good position!
Oh, he got a lot of good men killed in his Banana_War which was probably more about securing his family and friends oil interests as anything else. I could see him going after Saddam for threatening his daddy's life, really no dictator should be allowed to mount an attack on a sitting or former President. But for the Iraq adventure not to be a banana war, "Enron" Bush had to demand that the 1st Amendment to our Constitution be in the Iraqi one, and Religious liberty to be guranteed, which didn't even happen when American troops were there! The number nominal Christians in Iraq dropped from 650,000 to 150,000! q.v., Christians targeted in Baghdad attacks and Iraq's war on Christians. No, Bush Jr. should have been impeached.

Because I read press reports, silly! Amazing that you, able to produce a torrent of various weblinks, could've missed it. Ref: Betty Williams Also Morrissey, a pop singer, wished Bush had died instead of Reagan. Now these are foreigners, but I have little reason to think they repudiate Democratic politics.
I think you're a bit obsessive about Dubya ‚ÄĒ did he kill your dog or something? Maybe Gil could help you get over it.
Or maybe you're just playing games trying to divert attention from the current President.
Neil, I rather fascinated why you think anyone would wish, "Enron" Bush to be dead? Now of course he should have been impeached, but it's too late for that now. Besides, he is just a good example of what would happen if a Republican got into the White House. His endorsement of Romney could be seen, "As a Kiss of Death." If Romney had any sense, a family friend of the Bushes he should have asked them, especially the younger not to give them an endorsement.
I wonder how much sympathy we should have for this man who committed suicide? He was a murderer since he killed his wife. He is responsible for the sin of murder.
