He’s not real. OK, he’s black, he kind of does the thing, but he’s not really down with the cause. He’s not one of us. He’s kind of black but he’s not really, like, the Parker:“Well because that’s just how I want to find out about him. I don’t know because I keep hearing these things. We all know he has a white fiancee. There was all this talk about how he’s a Republican, which, I don’t really care, there’s no information at all. I’m just trying to dig deeper into why he has an issue. Because we did find out with Tiger Woods. Tiger Woods was like, I’ve got black skin but don’t call me black.” SOME BLACKS ARE SO RACISTS THEY ARE DUMB THEY EVEN HATE BLACK PEOPLE,WITHOUT A WHITE THERE WOULD BE NO OBAMARead more at http://bossip.com/696477/race-matters-espn-re... guy you want to hang out with because he’s off to something else.

He was in his 20's, had a child at the school. Probably some custody issue, people go crazy around holidays, it's awful. They have guns and want to take their frustrations out on the world, instead of just killing themselves. At least this killer was shot dead, they should have done that to the Batman killer.
18 children among the 26 dead.

None of us will have a happy Christmas this year. All of our thoughts will be with the parents and siblings of those sweet children who probably already had presents under the tree.

While we ALL joke and goof around here (cheap entertainment), it takes an especially deviant and depraved mind like yours to exploit a tragedy involving one diseased maggot executing almost 30 people (mostly preschoolers). While I know (and am thankful) that you will never be able to procreate, you really should sincerely consider suicide. You have no worthwhile place on the planet, and the world would be a much better place with a "generation zero" loser like yourself gone.

Don't think, "just do it" :-).

Gun Control, RIP

2012 was a horrific year for mass shootings. Americans were shocked by an April spree at a religious school in Oakland that killed seven; the brutal theater shooting in Aurora, Colorado, in July that killed 12; the Sikh Temple massacre in Wisconsin in August that claimed six lives; and the September Minneapolis sign-plant slaughter of five; among others. It became almost hard to call these episodes shocking as summer turned to fall—just another expected part of the news landscape, like political scandals or Middle East bombings.

Seems like that should make now a propitious time to issue a book subtitled A Liberal’s Case for the Second Amendment. Author Craig R. Whitney, a former reporter and editor for the New York Times, has written a volume that tells the cultural and legal history of Americans’ attitudes toward guns, as well as of their right to own and use them.

The book also pushes a set of policy prescriptions that Whitney paints as the rational, intelligent middle between untenable pro-gun attitudes (no new laws restricting our ability to buy, carry, and store weapons) and untenable anti-gun attitudes (no private ownership of firearms). Whitney argues there’s an intractable political divide about guns that only his measured wisdom can bridge.

But the reaction to this year’s string of prominent gun crimes undercuts Whitney’s project. That reaction was—beyond personal and some civic grief—nothing, except a bump in private gun buying. No effective new call for stronger gun regulations arose. As gun-control activists complained, guns and gun policy didn’t come up at all in the domestic-policy presidential debate in October between President Obama and Mitt Romney.

It may be true that there is still, as Whitney writes,“hysteria that passes for discussion of the Second Amendment by gun rights supporters and advocates of gun control.” But that hysteria is localized within a narrow community of obsessives. It’s not dominating American politics or tearing us asunder as a people. It’s not an issue that really demands big rethinking right now.

Obama apparently believes that Assad has chemical weapons.
If so, where did they come from?
Iran, Russia or both. Syria's chemical weapons stock pile is located just to the Southeast of Aleppo and is being guarded by Syrian military personnel who have drawn up tightly around the base. Rebel forces control the rest of the region, it's roads, etc. so the chemical weapons are in jail so to speak.

There were five short range Syrian built scuds launched this week from near Damascus towards the Northern areas, apparently they caused no damage. Syria is said to have up to 400 Russian built long range scuds in it's arsenal, wherever that is.

The Syrian military is also using barrel bombs which sound to me like a newer version of what the US used to call foo gas.

Assad's days are numbered, even Russia agrees that the rebel forces will likely prevail. Turkey, Lebanon and Jordan will pick up the remaining pieces, the US will provide some funding.

The losers are Russia, Iran and the 40,000 plus Syrians who died in the revolt.

No American lives lost, no Syrian blood on America's hands.

It is INDEED a moment of profound sadness, but equally disturbing is the puzzlement surrounding these types of heinous acts. I grew up in a communty where EVERY head of the household had an arsenal used in hunting equal to or better than any possessed by these school-shooting cowards, yet there was NOT ONE gun violence incident in my entire schooling duration Statewide (or regionwde, for that matter). In fact, no one even gave guns in the household a second thought. Morale? Its not the guns (because they havent changed); its the people, the civilization (term used loosely), and the morals that have fueled these scumbags.

High time we started utlizing eugenics and speedy capital punishment in our treatment of repeat violent criminals.....

Why are you people so focused on the guns? We need to focus on the people who could do such a thing. A person did this. What was wrong with him?

There have always been these situations going on but now you have the news media harping on all of them in an attack on the 2nd amendment. Don't swallow the snake oil.
People are taking out their frustrations on others because something has to be different. The tension in the air is something most of us can tangibly feel. Only the insulated in their denial are whistling.

But three mass shootings in a little more than five months...something just isn't right.

However, no snake oil here. I actually heard myself say to my husband this afternoon that maybe we should buy a gun and get a concealed gun license.

If you knew me, you'd know how unusual it was for me to say that. I don't have any problem with gun ownership but never wanted to own one in my entire lifetime. It's astonishing that I would even suggest it.

However, I still don't want to own a gun.

Never EVER phaggot, unless you are talking about violent murderers (whom I most ASSUREDLY would shoot and kill). I sure wish I had been able to intervene in Conneticut this A.M.

Take my advice, do the world a favor, and kill yourself....:-)
