Yup, you and the rest of the nutcases, Dobson, Ficsher, Huckabee,
the Westboro group, you're all birds of a feather.
A massacre happens and you blame it on gay marriage and abortion.
Anything to promote your pushing your religion on everyone.
Can't you people ever just give it up for one effing day and let these people alone to mourn their childrens death? Have you no shame? It's sickening.
The above clowns like to preach moral compass as they defend the 7th vacations home in the Cayman Islands.
Religion is fine, just misrepresented by smug preachers in five thousand dollar suits.

Just tell them that if Adam Lanza had been aborted, this tragedy would have never occurred.

It has nothing to do with politics. It has everything to do with us. We created this environment through our complacency and losing our moral compass and not even trying to find it.
Garbage in, garbage out. The connection is obvious.
politics/legislation is the only thing that can change it.

hollow words from hypocritical deity worshipers sure won't get it done. otherwise, you'd have nothing to complain about.

Perhaps the teachers need more, and enhanced training. How about both, teachers trained with firearms AND police? If a teacher shooses to remain unarmed, like I choose any and every time I leave my home, then that is a choice available to them.
And, then we can work on training our teachers to be better than producing the most expensive workforce in the industrialized world with the most expensive education system in the world.
Out of curiosity, why do you think we have the most expensive education system in the world adn produce the most ignorant workforce in the industrialized world?
First you want to close the schools and fire the teachers, take their pensions, lower their salaries and now you want them to become body guards and carry guns?
What's next? Perhaps we can turn schools into military barracks and the kids can all wear army uniforms. Onward Christian soldiers and they can listen to Wagners Wahlspruch für die Deutsche Feuerwehr

Really stupid? What did he have a musket? No he was armed with an AR 15 which is classified as an assault rifle.
reports of the AR15 were false,it seems with current reports he had a bush master .308 wich is a hunting rifel.bolth are semi automatics but the bush master hunting rifel has more knock down power and range than the smaller avg so called asault rifel, civilan model .223 AR15. Not that the weapon maters at all , he could have done this same evil deed with a cheap wal mart .22
Reguardless it was the syco that did the killing. The guns did not grow legs and walk into that school.
Criminals and sycos don't tend to care about laws or gun bans, 10 shootings last night in chicago in a gun free city.

No one is going to ban guns if that is your worry.
Just useful to have the Republican Party known as the party of
the rich
the guns
and hating 47% of voters

What is the point of joining anyway? On the local news here they interviewed people frantically buying guns; one kid was only 21, said he had 5 guns already, buying more.
Sickening.

Well, we think Barack will be great in his second term. Remember guys and gals, when Barack came into office. He said that he would not be able to fix the mess we were in, in just four years. It would take longer. Bush left eight years of mess for him to clean up. Not only is Barack dealing with the countries present problems, he is also trying to catch things up from the past.:)
Yeah right. It took the first four years to fcuk things up so bad 7.7%(joke) unemployment looks pretty good and 50% of the country on gov. cheese is a great accomplishment. Everything about this economy is Obama's, if it's not his 'fault' then he's got us right where he wants us. Starve the economy long enough and even bread and water starts to look pretty damned appetizing.

Still, you benefit from their insane pro-gun legislation, just like non-union scabs benefit from labor union's collective bargaining agreements. Like them, you're getting a free ride. You're nothing more than a NRA scab.

It's easy to spot liberal crap. Anytime they spew about gun control, they tend to bring up the term "assault weapon".
What the hell is an "assault weapon"? I know a good deal about guns, but "assault weapon" means nothing. To a liberal, it means "a scary looking gun". Which is why the "assault weapon" ban that expired years ago is not around-- it couldn't be enforced because there is no definition for "assault weapon".
But that's the Liberal Way. Pass laws that make people feel better and less afraid, even if they are pointless. Like having every airline passenger take off his shoes at the airport.
Bought some Sudafed over the weekend, my wife has a cold. Since liberal kids are cooking so much meth these days, a customer can't buy Sudafed without going to the pharmacy and having their driver's license scanned. The last thing you have to do before they give you the decongestant is sign a statement that says "I promise ONLY to use this product to stop my sniffles".
Like if I WAS going to cook meth with it I wouldn't sign that form.
Ah, liberal influence is everywhere.
What states have the largest meth problems?

Huckabee's son slit the throat of a dog, skinned and hung it with another sicko Christian boy. Perhaps he can explain to us why.
Hallelujer.
