It seems this knot head brought a club to a gun fight.

BETHEL PARK, Pa. –  Police in western Pennsylvania say a man was shot to death after reportedly brandishing a wooden club in an attack on the owners of a Pittsburgh-area music store.

Police Chief John Mackey told reporters that the 32-year-old man entered Armen’s House of Music in Bethel Park shortly before noon Saturday but left after two or three minutes.

Mackey said he went outside to his car and then returned carrying the club, which the chief said he used to strike the wife of the store owner.

Mackey said the owner came to his wife’s defense and was also attacked, and the two struggled briefly before the owner pulled a revolver and shot and killed the attacker.

The store owner and his wife were taken to UPMC Mercy for treatment of unspecified injuries. Police said they are expected to recover.

Mackey said robbery appeared not to be the motive, and he didn’t know whether the owners knew the man, whose name was not immediately released.

Police and county homicide detectives are investigating. The medical examiner’s office said its crew had not yet returned from the scene.

The store in Bethel Park, about five miles south of Pittsburgh, sells musical instruments and offers music lessons, according to its Facebook page,

Real, Successful CEO Slams Obamacare–Take Note!

Leave a comment

This is from the Last Resistance.

These are words of wisdom from a successful CEO.

One would think the CEO of whole foods would be a raging liberal.

After all Whole Foods is a supplier of food for the tree  huggers.



There’s an eerie perception in this country, on the part of Liberals, that government is the ultimate benefactor; the final word on what is good and right. We all know about this peculiar world-view, but it bears reminding. On the flip-side, those who are in actual positions of success, such as CEOs, and real businessmen, are demonized and regarded as evil, greedy people who have no interest beyond their own.

In an NPR interview, the CEO of Whole Foods, John Mackey, said this of Obamacare: “Socialism is where the government owns the means of production. In fascism, the government doesn’t own the means of production, but they do control it—and that’s what’s happening with our health care programs and these reforms…We no longer have free enterprise capitalism in health care. It’s not a system any longer where people are able to innovate. It’s not based on voluntary exchange. The government is directing it so we need a new word for it, I don’t know what that right word is.”

It’s one thing when a Conservative business or businessman slams Obama, but when you have a supplier of healthy, organic foods–who’s corporation you’d expect to be on the Liberal side of the aisle, honestly–makes a derisive comment; it sticks in the mind.

Whole Foods is an extraordinarily successful chain with extremely modest beginnings. From there, it grew into a model of business success. Whole Foods employs thousands of people, and it’s success depends on many factors; with healthcare costs nearing the top of the list.

John Mackey, and CEO’s like him, are the beginning and the end of our economy. His opinion of Obamacare reflects not only the opinion of many business owners, but basic economic truth. This President has presided over one of the biggest economic interventions in history and it is stifling business, which is killing our economy. It is simple, obvious, and powerfully clear.

Instead of dismissing or demonizing businessmen, we should be looking to them for guidance in a troubled economy. When the President acts in direct opposition to the advise of successful people; and directly against the best interest of the American people, it may be time to consider dismissing the President. Impeachment? Maybe; maybe not. Just a thought.
