Country singer Mindy McCready
dead of apparent suicide

USA TODAY, by Brian Mansfield and Bill Welch

Original Article

Posted By:bamapreacher, 2/17/2013 10:38:23 PM

Mindy McCready, a country singer better known recently for her ongoing personal troubles than for her string of late-´90s hits, died Sunday of an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound in her Arkansas home, the Cleburne County sheriff said. Sheriff Marty Moss said his office received a call to the McCready home around 3:30 p.m. local time in Heber Springs, Ark., west of Memphis and north of Little Rock. "Ms. McCready is deceased from what appears to be a self-inflicted gunshot wound,´´ Moss told USA TODAY. He said officers found McCready at the scene.

Comments:
Sad that more and more singers and actresses seem to be letting their fame get ahead of them to the point where they can´t handle it anymore without drugs and alcohol.

God love her...she´d been a train wreck for YEARS. From having a teenage affair with Roger Clemens to drugs and alcohol to violent relationships...geez Louise. and of course, the latest was the death of her fiance´, who she wsaid was a suicide, but the police aren´t convinced and she hasn´t been ruled out as a suspect. As ever, it´s the children who suffer.

Never heard of her. I stopped listening to country music after the 80´s. Everything sounds the same as other genres now. Sorry to hear this though...

#7, that´s true. But she tried at least three other times to kill herself with pills. She must have meant it this time. It is my understanding that the children had been taken away from me. She killed her dog too. Glad the kids weren´t there because she might have shot them in her state of mind.

It wasn´t just a teenage love affair with that reprobate Clemens - she was 15. Yes, she was a train wreck but she had a lot of help. I´m guessing that she may have had an abortion also. There is growing evidence that abortion leads to drug and alcohol abuse as well as thoughts of suicide. Very sad life for one so young. Her children will be taken care of - it is too bad that she couldn´t get through rehab and get her life back together for their sakes.

Unfortunately, because she killed herself, her eternal agonies are just beginning. I pray God have mercy on her soul. It´s too bad, and so sad, that she couldn´t have found peace and forgiveness from her Heavenly Father in this life (it was there, all along) in order to be eternally peaceful and happy in the next.

Jesse Jackson has decided to weigh in on the inflammatory comments that Phil Robertson made to GQ about gays and African Americans. In an interview with Drew Magary, the "Duck Dynasty" star said the Nazis needed Jesus, that he never saw the mistreatment of African Americans while growing up in Louisiana before the civil rights era and that homosexuality was a sin. A&E has already suspended Robertson, but Reverend Jackson, his Rainbow PUSH Coalition and GLAAD are demanding to meet with network execs, along with Cracker Barrel´s CEO, to discuss the future of all "Duck Dynasty" memorabilia or content.

President Obama acknowledged on Thursday that he lived with his Kenyan uncle for a brief period in the 1980s while preparing to attend Harvard Law School, contradicting a statement more than a year ago that the White House had no record of the two ever meeting. Their relationship came into question on Tuesday at the deportation hearing of his uncle, Onyango Obama, in Boston immigration court. His uncle had lived in the United States illegally since the 1970s and revealed in testimony for the first time that his famous nephew had stayed at his Cambridge apartment for about three weeks. At

Key West, Fla. - Looking dazed and sunburned, U.S. endurance swimmer Diana Nyad walked ashore Monday, becoming the first person to swim from Cuba to Florida without the help of a shark cage. The 64-year-old Nyad swam up to the beach just before 2 p.m. EDT, about 53 hours after starting her journey from Havana on Saturday.

A new poll released Monday throws a bucket of cold water on the theory that nominating a Latino candidate for President would help the Republican party win a larger share of the Latino vote. The poll, from Latino Decisions, shows former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton walloping U.S. Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) among Latinos in a hypothetical 2016 matchup (snip)Clinton grabs 66% of Latino voters. Only 28% would vote for Rubio. Clinton is wildly popular with Latinos. 73% view her favorably and just 17% view her unfavorably. Those with an opinion are evenly divided on Rubio: 31% favorable; 29% unfavorable.

WASHINGTON - Republican Senator Marco Rubio, shifting his tone on the U.S. immigration bill he helped to write, said on Tuesday he is now fully satisfied that the measure will do what it takes to secure the southern border with Mexico. Rubio, a potential presidential contender and the most high-profile Republican backer of immigration reform, had irked supporters of the sweeping Senate immigration bill with public comments in which he consistently said the legislation was not tough enough on border enforcement. The Florida lawmaker was part of the bipartisan "Gang of Eight" senators who

Another loophole inserted into the new version of the “Gang of Eight” immigration bill allows Department of Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano (or any of her successors) to nix the construction of a required border security fence if she does not find it to be an "appropriate" use of resources.

Bob Corker (R-TN) and John Hoeven (R-ND), with Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid repackaging the whole bill into the amendment (snip) a provision was inserted that says Napolitano (snip) can decide against

Students at three Dearborn elementary schools received the flyers. A large number of Muslim students attend the schools.

Kathryn Riffenburg decided on a closed casket for her baby´s funeral. She didn´t want her family to see what whooping cough, her son´s first illness, had done to 9-week-old Brady Alcaide. The nearly forgotten disease, which has in recent years afflicted thousands of Americans, left Brady´s tiny body swollen and unrecognizable. So his mother dressed him in a white baptismal suit and hat and tucked him into a tiny white casket. Brady´s burial came just four weeks after his first laugh — inspired by her version of I´m a Little Teapot — and two weeks after his family learned that he had

Former GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney has sworn off running again for elected office, but Americans have certainly heard that one before. Speculation that Romney might run again has largely been stoked by the reunion he planned to host last month in Park City, Utah, for members of his 2012 campaign and debate team and a string of recent public appearances. He has appeared on TV news shows 12 times in the past six months. That’s essentially on pace with Michigan GOP Rep. Mike Rogers, who led all national politicians last year with 26 appearances over 12 months. Romney has

Democrats are facing a senior problem that could get even worse this year. The party has traditionally had trouble with older voters, losing the group aged 65 and over by 21 points in 2010 — when Republicans picked up 63 seats — and by 12 points in the 2012 presidential race. Seniors are the GOP’s most reliable voting bloc in midterm years, turning out in higher numbers than Democratic base voters. A recent Gallup poll showed seniors have become even more Republican over the last two decades; in 2013, 48 percent considered themselves Republican. That spells trouble for Democrats, who are already facing

WASHINGTON- Seven million people signed up, so there is an appetite for President Barack Obama´s health care law, but that doesn´t guarantee success for the country´s newest social program. Big challenges are lurking for the next enrollment season, which starts Nov. 15. Chief among them are keeping premiums and other consumer costs in check, and overhauling an enrollment process that was advertised as customer-friendly but turned out to be an ordeal.

The president gave two speeches this week, one in the Rose Garden to talk about Obamacare and one in Ann Arbor, Mich., to push minimum wage increases. What did we learn? We learned that President Obama is most comfortable in campaign mode, and his campaigning has gotten downright ugly. His Rose Garden speech was a typical self-congratulatory moment for supposedly hitting 7.1 million Obamacare sign-ups — although we know that once again, the White House is ignoring some inconvenient truths. We also learned that the president was vain enough to asked the networks to cover his speech in prime time, but
