Rick Scott will not create the insurance exchanges to implement Obamacare; now the Federal Government will do so. Oh well. He's a goner anyway.
Scott and Snyder are just further proof that venture capitalists should not take leading roles in government.

The young many simply had an adverse reaction to the preservatives and sugar that was in his lunch. This tragedy falls squarely on the shoulders of the fast-food industry.

So why do you think these shootings happen here more than there?
American Exceptionalism?

I don't know, I have some things that I consider. This has been a fringe subject here thus far.

I'd like to pose the following to the group:

Mental health law changed in the 70's, used to be easier to put dangerous people away and keep them there; not anymore. Coincidentally, that's about when these incidents started occurring.

Thoughts?(for once can we maybe just discuss an issue without trying to leverage this incident against either liberals or conservatives?)

If the killer was named Mohammed, he'd be a terrorist. If the killer was Hispanic, he'd be an illegal drug dealer, if the killer was black, oh well, what else can one expect from blacks?
But it's only the whites who have an excuse for murder, they are investigated and found to be suffering from mental illness, depression, medication etc. It's the way it is.
People are astounded; how could this happen in an affluent all white community in Conn.? Mental illness affects millions of people, there are many more Adams around than people realize, no one knows when they may snap. No easy solutions.
Gee Whiz, I know two people named Mohammed, neither are terrorists, I know plenty of Hispanics, none of which are drug dealers. I know plenty of Black people, not a one is a drug dealer or terrorist. So your screed is shallow. Could it be the lieberal teaching in public skool, is be to blame? Hell no, never blame lieberal thinking....

The young many simply had an adverse reaction to a vaccine he received as a child. This tragedy falls squarely on the shoulders of the giant pharmaceutical corporations.

Monsters become monsters because they allow themselves to become a product of their environment. A better environment doesn't necessarily guarantee better people. There are good people who come from horrible environments and bad people who come from great environments.
Roses can grow from cracks in the sidewalks.
Snakes infiltrate Paradise.
It comes down to personal responsibility. Teach the core components of personal responsibility to every child, teach them to think for themselves, teach them that Life has value way beyond the XFactor and Modern Family, teach them to teach themselves. Do this and Paradise gets fertilized.
I recently watched an interview with a man who has become a world renowned architect. He came from Lebanon at the age of eight where hate and gunpowder cheapen Life to near zero. He and his father were hit with shrapnel from an explosion dropping into their living room. They immigrated to the West with only the clothes on their backs. He is now worth millions. He values the non-material things here in the West. Very much. He has a reverence for Life and is disgusted with materialism. He was taught and self-taught.
Maybe we, too, can find something rising from the ashes.
But you won't find anything if you are not looking and don't know what to look for in the first place.
Heart touching story bout the guy from lebanon. Also I understand the message you were sending, but to ignore the facts & statistics of life is to lie ones self like romney in the election. It's only common sense that ones environment has a huge affect on their outcome whether good or bad. If we choose to continue to treat our environment as an excuse & not a reason, we will continue to get the same results. We need to look deeper into what were the factors that makes 2 kids from the same environment go in opposite directions. I'm no psychologist, but growing up next door to true struggle in the projects of South Jersey, I watched 3 bros raised in the same hell hole go in 3 different directions (1 a marine, 2nd drug addicted, & 3rd drug dealer now in prison). Like I said, I'm no psychologist, but it don't take a scientist to understand that there is science behind it. The only way for those not raised in that environment to be able to study & assess the topic at hand, one must subjugate themselves to that environment. This is not one of those situations where you can give an outside in aspect. It dont fit into the equation! You have to truly understand struggle & pain!

We already implemented mandatory drug testing for welfare recipients in FL. The results, after spending millions?
2% tested positive.
Nice try, stay stupid.

Nearly every household in Switzerland has a gun, many are full-auto capable military assault rifles. Don't know of any similar incidences there.

Mary Fallin won't create the exchanges either, as if that will stop the Federal government from doing so. She'll be re-elected at least 2 more times.

Yes. He was just like you. Check into the nearest mental hospital as soon as possible.

Your hatred for your fellow citizens has been evident for months, even this morning you lashed out at muslims, blacks, any target for your immature hatred based on your being an abject failure in life.

Based on your record here, with your lies about having been a Navy veteran and the rest of your unbridled hatrerd and ignorance, you're just as much a sociopath as this kid was. Hopefully, you'll just shoot yourself, and leave others alone.

"Infested with Democrats?"
So you think that street thugs, drug dealers and Grand Theft Auto playing losers are posses of Democrat activists? What planet are you from? 90% of the country's citizens can't even tell you who their senators are.
Did you notice that many of the 10 states where gun deaths outnumber vehicular deaths are primarily low population white states? Does your "argument" hold for Alaska, Nevada, Utah, Oregon, Washington? So which is it, are white guys better drivers or better shots?
My statement is that guns are machines, and anybody who has any inkling of design understand the most basic tenet - form follows function. When you LOOOVE your machines, you have crossed over to the Twilight Zone, my friend.
Your argument that a ban on extraordinary and military firearms is the gateway to outlawing all guns is the fear mongering nonsense straight from the NRA playbook. That's like saying everybody who has gotten drunk or high is going to end up shooting meth.
Speaking of meth, watched a documentary on meth in Montana. There are no blacks or minorities there. It's pure ignorance to place the blame on any one group.
Agree that many people don't know who their elected officials are, nor do they even participate in politics, let alone give a damn. They're on the streets hustling for their money, junkies out hustling for their next hit.
Machines such as guns and cars make the inadequate feel powerful.

I was living in CA during the 80's when Ronnie cut funds for mental health facilities. Nutballs pushing shopping carts started popping up everywhere. I think that trend continued through Dem and GOP administrations.
