Wow, so sad...

Two Arrested In Barack Obama Assassination Plot
October 27th, 2008 | Author: Andres Tardio

Law enforcement agents have announced that they have stopped an assassination plot that would have shot and decapitated more than 100 black people and Senator Barack Obama. The plan, set up by two Neo-Nazi Skinheads, was stopped by ATF agents and the report was released today by the US District Court in Jackson, Tennessee.

According to the reports, the plan was to rob a gun store and target a mostly African American high school to go on a killing spree. The two men charged with the crime did not name the school they had in mind.

The special agent in charge of ATF's Nashville Field Office is Jim Cavanaugh. he spoke to the AP and noted that the plan was to shoot 88 black people and behead another 14. According to Cavanaugh, the numbers 88 and 14 were used specifically because they are symbolic numbers in the white supremacist community.

The two also planned on following that up by going on another killing spree around the nation, ending with their final target, Senator Obama. Legal documents revealed they "planned to drive their vehicle as fast as they could toward Obama shooting at him from the windows."

"Both individuals stated they would dress in all white tuxedos and wear top hats during the assassination attempt. Both individuals further stated they knew they would and were willing to die during this attempt."

Cavanaugh also spoke on their intentions.

"They said that would be their last, final act — that they would attempt to kill Senator Obama. They didn't believe they would be able to do it, but that they would get killed trying."

"They seemed determined to do it. Even if they were just to try it, it would be a trail of tears around the south."

Senator Obama's spokesperson had no immediate comment on the matter at the time this story ran.

The names of both men were also revealed. Daniel Cowart, a 20 year old from Bells, Tennessee, and Paul Schlesselman, an 18 year old from Helena-West Helena, Arkansas, are both being held without bond, according to reports. A sawed-off shotgun, a rifle and three pistols were confiscated by authorities.

Sheriff Troy Klyce from Crockett County also spoke on the matter.

"Once we arrested the defendants and suspected they had violated federal law, we immediately contacted federal authorities," he noted.

Currently, the men are charged with conspiring to steal firearms from a federally licensed gun dealer, possession of an unregistered firearm, and threatening the life of a candidate for president. They are scheduled for a bond hearing this Thursday in Memphis.

Although Senator Obama has not spoken on the matter, he was back on the campaign trail this week. Today, he issued what his campaign billed as his "closing statement" as they make a final push toward the November 4 elections.

"We cannot let up for one day, one minute, or one second in this last week. Not now. Don't think for a minute that power concedes. We have a lot of work to do. We have to work like our future depends on it in this last week, because it does depend on it this week."

Constructing My Perfect Woman

I was thinking a few days ago that perhaps my issues with women may stem from the fact that I've never sat down and figured out what I actually want in a woman. (Besides Kerry)

(Heavenly Chorus Plays)

Okay lets get back to the partial fantasy instead of the total one. In all these years I have just gone with the logic of "oh she's talking to me, I should marry her." And while I've been lucky a few times but for the most part my dating endeavors have been less than favorable. Figured I might want to try someone with similar interests for once. So after thinking long and hard,nohomo, I have compiled a list of qualities and traits that I would be present in my perfect girl.

1. I need me a HIP-HOP chick. Now I listen to music CONSTANTLY and in the past, I've settled for a girl with good tastes in music. And that was cool, cause it usually meant I didn't have to listen to "hollabackgirl" more than once a year. But if there's one thing I love it's a Lady who loves her Hip-Hop. I want a Girl who I can have an intelligent argument with about why Jean Grae is/isn't better than Blackthought, someone who knows the difference between 9th Wonder and J Dilla, someone who can put me up onto some illness I haven't heard before. I want to be able to take my girl to a concert and have her know more than the one song she's heard on the radio and be rockin' out right with me.
Good Example: Amanda Diva or Lauryn Hill

Bad Example: Da Brat or Lil Mamma

TESTS: Name all members of the Wu-tang clan without wikipedia or know any verse of any song off Mos Def's Black on Both Sides

2. Hmm let's go for someone athletic too. Imma dude so I like me some sports(not baseball, baseball is lame) so I imagined it would be nice to be with someone who also enjoyed them. It would be cool to go to the basketball court with my girl and actually feel good about crossing her up because she knew better than to reach. Or watch a game with her without her deciding to route for a certain team because their colors are nice or their QB is cute. And who knows, maybe she'll cross me...(I KNOW. AND SHE WON'T) I hate baseball.
Good Ex: Candace Parker/Serena Williams

Bad Ex: Chyna/Sporty Spice

TEST: Hit a 3 pointer while still looking cute. (I can barely do either half of that)

3. N*E*R*D (minus the "*") Basically, I want to be able to watch Star Wars movie without some chick moaning about it or making me turn it off. Hey if she enjoys it, I may go out and buy an engagement ring before the Ewoks show up. Knowledge of comics books is a plus too. I've actually said to myself is any girl that greets me the way MJ greets Peter Parker in their 1st meeting will always have my heart.
Good Ex: Tina Fey/Velma

Bad Ex: The Napoleon Dynamite Chick/Myrtle Urkel

TEST: Greet Me at my door with MJ's famous line.

4. Um, I'm gonna need a chick who can tolerate a broke dude. Yes I do have a full time job, but I also have an apartment and bills, so If you catch me at the wrong part of the month it's not pretty. I have no problem spending money on a girl I like, but if you're gonna be all mad that I couldn't afford to buy the SpagettiO's with the hot dogs for our gourmet dinner tonight well then I think this is where we part. Here just for the hell of it here's the Miss Independent remix.

Good Ex: Upgrade You Beyonce

Bad Ex: Pay My Bills Beyonce

5. A Smart Lady. I'm stupid, I need someone to teach me thingstuff. Someone to teach me to cook, another language, school me on some economics, tell me why I shouldn't eat a bottle of Flinstone vitamins a day, or just whup me in scrabble. Bring it on.
Good Ex:Couldn't think of anyone at the time so here goes Rosario Dawson

Bad Ex: Gretchen

6. Someone to put up with me. I am by no means perfect. I'm immature and joke around too much, slightly insane, I work too much, I'm only marginally good looking, there's the aforementioned brokeness, and occasionally I'm a jerk. So if all that is appealing to you... You need a doctor.
TEST: Put Up with Me

7. Someone with their own funky style or demeanor. Normal People are boring, and who wants that. Got some strange quirks? Cool. You like to wear a bagpipe with you where ever you go? Awesome. Got your elbow pierced? That's a little much for me. But until that thumbs up.
Good Ex: Jack Davey/Janelle Monae

Bad Ex: This scares me.

TEST: Be like them, but original. You know?

As far as appearance goes, I'm not too picky. I have no defense for a nice smile, and I'm partial to black girls, they've had the home court advantage thus far. Prefer the T, in T&A, but hey, they're both pretty cool.

As long as we're fantasizing: I think I'd like to go for a tall chick cause usually I deal with shorties, and I would love a chick with locks in her hair or something.
And maybe a dragon. (too much fantasy?)

So there we go, there's my loose outline of what my perfect girl would be like. And now I will go be depressed because she does not exist and I will never find her, nor will I look because... weren't you paying attention? SHE'S NOT REAL. Now lets go out there and be miserable team.



That could have been real. Be careful. Stuff explodes sometimes.
