Barack Obama, our next President

The idea that recent mass shooters are mostly registered Democrats is a myth
1. Nidal Hasan (the Ft. Hood shooter) lived in either Virginia (his state of residence prior to being sent to Ft. Hood) or Texas, neither of which has partisan registration. Therefore the claim that he was a "registered Democrat" is false. I do not know if he voted or how he voted, but I do know that unless he was registered in a state in which he did not reside, that the claim that he is a registered Democrat is FALSE.
2. Since Virginia does not have partisan registration there is also no way to tell whether Seung-Hui Cho was a Democrat, but again because there is no partisan registration in the state we can say that the claim that he is a registered Democrat is FALSE.(Update: A more obvious point is that Cho was a resident alien, not a US citizen, so he was not eligible to vote in the US)
4. The claim that Adama Lanza is a registered Democrat has been suggested based not on any evidence that he was registered as one, but on the rather dubious claim that because Connecticut has almost 2 to 1 Democratic registration over Republicans, he was probably a Democrat.(Claim: "Adam Lanza, NewtownConn murderer. Registered Democrats outnumber Republicans by about a 2-1 ratio in Connecticut. The odds are therefore that the Lanza family are (sic) Democrats.")
.....We can therefore claim that with no evidence to support the claim, the assertion that Lanza was a Democrat is not demonstrated and that in the absence of any evidence it is likely FALSE.
Interestingly, Hedgecock and those on the far right have conveniently overlooked a number of cases where ideology is clearly right-wing. The acts below are instances of right-wing violence that are unequivocally committed by people who are openly hostile to liberalism. While this does not mean these killers are Republicans, it is quite clear that they are RIGHT-WINGERS and that they have far more in common with Mr. Hedgecock, Alex Jones and the other gun-toting conspiracy nuts on the right than with any evils associated with the Democratic Party or liberalism.

so as usual, he has nothing.
It's liberals who should be banned and forbidden from owning guns. YOU people kill people. Whether it's on the streets or in an abortion clinic, blacks are killing themselves at an unprecedented rate.

Why is it that none of the disturbed and hate-filled liberals, who take or steal guns, then go and kill movie-goers and children in schools, has never been identified as a conservative, independent or a NRA member?

Ft. Hood~~~ Nidal Malik Hasan Registered Democrat ~ Muslim

Columbine ~~~ Too young to vote; both families Dylan Klebold's and

Eric Harris' parents were registered Democrats and progressive liberals

Virginia Tech ~~~ Wrote hate mail to President Bush and to his staff ~ Registered Democrat

Colorado Theater ~~~ James Holmes Registered Democrat; staff worker on the Obama campaign; Occupy Wall Street participant; liberal

Connecticut School Shooter ~~~ Adam Lanza Registered Democrat; hated Christians; nuculur liberal

Gabrielle Giffords ~~~ Jared Loughner Registered Pelosi loving Democrat extremist; Deranged liberal

George Zimmerman ~~~ Another deranged gun toting Democrat...

Common thread - all of these idiots are Democrats.

Ban guns? Blame and treat the symptom not the cause, deranged Democrats...

3. The allegation that James Holmes was registered Democrat was based on a Breitbart blogger Joel B. Pollack, who found voter registration records for a DIFFERENT James Holmes who was about the same age. Alex Jones’ Infowars and other right-wing websites then dutifully repeated the lie without verifying it. It was later determined that the Colorado Theater Shooter James Holmes was NOT registered to vote, as evidenced by this retraction:{Newly-released information on the suspect’s birthdate (which, as indicated in our initial report, was a slight mismatch), combined with new details Breitbart News has obtained about the suspect’s likely addresses, together suggest that the suspect may, in fact, not have been registered to vote.}. However, most of right-wing media continued to promote the lie without printing Breitbart sites retraction. The claim that James Holmes was a registered Democrat is FALSE.
4. The claim that Adama Lanza is a registered Democrat has been suggested based not on any evidence that he was registered as one, but on the rather dubious claim that because Connecticut has almost 2 to 1 Democratic registration over Republicans, he was probably a Democrat.(Claim: "Adam Lanza, NewtownConn murderer.

.....We can therefore claim that with no evidence to support the claim, the assertion that Lanza was a Democrat is not demonstrated and that in the absence of any evidence it is likely FALSE.
5. Klebold and Harris of course were not old enough to vote and they had no apparent political affiliation. Allegations that they came from families of Democrats or liberal progressives appear to have no sources to substantiate those claims. What little ideology the boys demonstrated owed mostly to an admiration for Timothy McVeigh not Ted Kennedy.
Interestingly, Hedgecock and those on the far right have conveniently overlooked a number of cases where ideology is clearly right-wing.

libs never let common sense get in the way of political correctness:

Here come the judges
Posted: 10:50 PM, February 7, 2013

We cannot for the life of us understand why two federal judges are so bent on crippling two New York agencies universally seen as at the top of their professions — the Police and Fire departments.

The first is Manhattan federal Judge Shira Scheindlin. She’s overseeing three separate stop-and-frisk lawsuits in which she is signaling her desire to deprive the NYPD of a tactic that’s helped give this city its lowest murder rate in five decades.

Meanwhile, the Fire Department is dealing with a ruling from another federal judge, Nicholas Garaufis.

The FDNY commissioner recently announced that the department will hire nearly 300 minority applicants who took entrance exams back in 1999-2002 but didn’t get jobs because they didn’t score high enough.

The commissioner had no real choice — because Judge Garaufis has repeatedly declared the department’s hiring policies racist, with little proof other than that minority candidates fared poorly on the exams.

Garaufis declared past tests invalid and blocked new tests for four years. This amounted to a job freeze that cost the city $40 million each year in added overtime, until he finally authorized a new class last year.

Here’s another way of putting it: By making himself the Fire Department’s de facto personnel officer, Garaufis forced the FDNY to hire older and objectively less qualified firefighters — with no regard for any effect it might have on morale or public safety.

Oh, yes: This comes after a year in which New York had the fewest fire-related deaths since records were first kept in 1916 — and a seven-year streak of fewer than 100 fire deaths.

The professionalism and efficacy of the NYPD and the FDNY are the envy of the world, with policies and standards that have led to New York’s becoming the safest big city in the country. They — and the city they serve — deserve better than what these two judges are dishing out.

Read more: Nick Garaufis’ latest FDNY imposition—Editorial - NYPOST.com http://www.nypost.com/p/news/opinion/editoria...

because the rights of hoodie wearing thugs trump children's safety in predominately minority neighborhoods--a neighborhood that the lib judge would never be in.

and although the Fire Dept pays the entrance exam fees for low income test takers, provides transportation and coaching and practically holds the pencil for them...they didn't dumb down the test enough.

According to the Pentagon timeline, Obama was in a meeting at 11 PM in the White House with Panetta & the head of the Joint Chiefs.

The initial attack was over.

No, they remember their history of being exterminated by rightwing white supremacists. They remember the signs "no Jews allowed", they remember not being able to rent apartments, buy houses, join country clubs, because of antisemitic racist rightwing zealots. Like you.
The Jewish people fought for their rights and champion human rights for everyone.

Karl Rove, Conservatives And The Battle For The GOP’s Soul

The escalating battle comes amid a dramatic post-election shift among congressional Republicans away from ultraconservative orthodoxy. House GOP leaders have sidelined some of their most far-right members from key committees and are moving away from using the threat of crisis as a bargaining chip to achieve their ideological goals. They’re even entertaining the prospect of stricter background checks for gun purchases and supporting normalizing the status of illegal immigrants — both unthinkable just months ago.

Pitney said Republicans tend to agree in principle on nominating the most conservative candidate who can win, but purists believe that those who favor more moderate GOP candidates “underestimate the electability of strong conservatives.”

“The GOP’s current problem is that some conservative activists support the most conservative candidate even when that candidate is badly flawed,” he said,“as with Sharron Angle in 2010 and Todd Akin in 2012.”
