Rand Paul's Wife: Every Breath He Takes Hurts

Kelley Paul: The average person takes 20,000 breaths a day. Since November 3, my husband, Rand Paul, has not taken a single one without pain. He has not had a single night's sleep uninterrupted by long periods of difficult breathing or excruciating coughing. ... The fact is, neither Rand nor I have spoken to the attacker in 10 years (since before his wife and children moved away) other than a casual wave from the car. Nobody in our family has, nor have we communicated with anyone in his family. With Rand's travel to D.C. in the last seven years, he has rarely seen this man at all. The only "dispute" existed solely in the attacker's troubled mind, until, on a beautiful autumn day, he ran down the hill on our property and slammed his body into Rand's lower back as he stood facing away, wearing noise canceling headphones to protect his ears from the lawnmower.

Comments

Imagine how much it would hurt if he couldn't afford proper medical treatment to deal with his injuries.

Every breath he takes every move he makes his body aches

Imagine you were minding your own business and some nut slammed into you breaking six ribs. I don't have to agree with Rand Paul on politics to sympathize with him about his injuries, and the attacker needs serious mental health help or, more likely, jail. That was not Rand Paul's fault, no one should be attacked so violently without justice being served.

Yeah , I hope he keeps that in mind on the upcoming healthcare votes. That ---- happens everyday to common folks.

If he wasn't such a -------- when it comes to helping poor people afford the medical care he gets for free then I would have some sympathy for him.

Rib injuries hurt. A friend broke one in a softball game and it was a tough recovery.

Imagine if his attacker had a gun.

Funny, every breath he takes hurts the US, particularly those who are poor.

And thats the type of suffering he's willing to bring to millions of sick americans so that rich people can have tax cuts.

Sorry, but this POS can hurt until the cows come home.

Many common folks, who aren't on health insurance paid for by the federal government, might have dies from this rather than go to a doctor.

Something needs to be done about the violence of the left.

The rhetoric of the Dem politicians make the mentally frail (most liberals) feel that this type of violence is OK.

#14 | Posted by sawdust at 2017-11-24 09:27 PM

-the violence of the left.

So, Forrest, the one thing most every account of this incident notes is that it was not political.

#15 | Posted by Corky at 2017-11-24 09:32 PM

Having a libertarian political opinion in America is morally wrong, and is justification for physical violence.

I mean, there is no way they could have just had a beer summit or something.

Antifa!

#17 He hadn't talked to the guy in over ten years. There was no "landscaping dispute". Care to try again?

#18 | Posted by HeliumRat at 2017-11-24 10:54 PM

-There was no "landscaping dispute"

"The attorney, asked about the motive, said "we should believe" a neighbor, Jim Skaggs, who told CNN there has been a "long-running disagreement" over property maintenance."

Sad!

Mrs. Paul should be thankful that a right wing piece of filth hasn't stepped on her head.

#19 His attorney. Rand Paul said he hadn't talked to the guy in a decade, and if you read Rand's neighbors accounts, they say there was no landscape dispute. But hey, you live in an echo chamber and get only side of the news, so that's not surprising.

Also, how does a landscaping dispute lead to an act of violence on this scale? Sure, it's possible his neighbor was just insane, but I doubt that. I mean, a sane rich man would have hired a lawyer.

But then, you don't think very logically do you?

Rand Paul's Wife: Every Breath He Takes Hurts
Rand Paul's neighbor, Rene Albert Boucher, issued this statement in response:
Every breath you take
Every move you make
Every bond you break
Every step you take
I'll be watching you
We now return you to your regularly-scheduled program, already in progress.

Interesting, the leftists here justify violence if someone has a differing political view.

This is the logical consequence of the intolerance demonstrated by leftists, whether shutting down free speech on campus or SJWs bullying people with their PC nonsense.

The real danger for home-grown terrorists is from the left.

#24 | Posted by sawdust at 2017-11-25 09:39 AM

#24 - At no point did I advocate violence. My post was to point out the fact that Mrs. Paul is fishing for sympathy for her husband, a man who is more than willing to impose a great deal of pain and suffering on the poorest Americans. The Pauls are the worst kind of garbage in my opinion. Where the hell is their sympathy for the most vulnerable members of our society.

"The real danger for home-grown terrorists is from the left." - #24 | Posted by sawdust at 2017-11-25 09:39 AM

This is true.

The home-grown terrorists are defenseless against the left, their real danger.

They should be afraid.

Very afraid.

Pulling out some kind of twisted distraction so one can justify the assault, how sad is that.

#30 - You obviously have a reading comprehension problem, as I clearly stated I don't condone the violence against rand paul, but I have a hard time feeling sorry for him when he would gladly allow fellow Americans to suffer much worst so that already wealthy people can have a tax cut.

#31 | Posted by schmanch at 2017-11-25 09:40 PM

comprehension is just fine, now we see you just don't have any empathy for a fellow person when they don't hold the same political beliefs, got it.

#32 | Posted by Crassus at 2017-11-25 10:03 PM

"hold the same political beliefs"

Politicians do more than "hold beliefs."
They act on them.
They impose them on others.

#33 | Posted by snoofy at 2017-11-25 10:12 PM

Politicians hold beliefs and follow their constituents, and most often the two align, that's how they are elected for office. But this doesn't have to do with partisan belief, this is a person being attacked and injured which you have clearly stated you have no empathy for the attack because of a political position. That's really neighborly of you.

#34 | Posted by Crassus at 2017-11-25 10:17 PM

Rand Paul is a very special snowflake and you should all feel sorry for him!
Signed,
Another special snowflake you should feel sorry for, named Crassus.

Boy that was funny, just so much intellect with 35.

Keep up the effort... you're averaging a meaningless post every two minutes for a half hour now.

#32 - Your partially right, but it is not his political views that stop me having any empathy for him. It is the fact that he is a selfish douche, and he obviously has no empathy for his fellow Americans. I reserve my empathy and sympathy for those that haven't shown a lack of empathy and sympathy.
