It's the same with every issue the Democrats thrive on, from global warming to the economy. It's as if they were off playing golf, screwing hookers, or launching rim-shots while the Republicans were busy conspiring the ruination of the universe - all without their slightest awareness or involvement. This absurdity wouldn't 'normally' raise an eyebrow, but when one considers the make-up of their constituency......
Actually, the Repub,lcans agreed with global warming until their party leadership decided it was better if they were against it. All they had to do was demonize it & you sheep followed lock step.

This is how stupid the right is.

Obamacre contains many Republican initiatives from before. Note how now, you bozos run screaming down the street. " OMG OMG OMG the Exchanges"

Even though your hero Paul Ryan proposed these same exchanges for Medicare & you idiots cheered.

You don't get it. You never will.

In December of 2008, YOUR leadership met & decided that if Obama was for it, you would be against it.

It worked like a charm as I read your posts.

U.S. Arrests Lawmakers, Claiming Bribe for Spot on Mayoral Ballot
State Senator Malcolm A. Smith, who rose to become the first black president of the State Senate, and City Councilman Daniel J. Halloran III were arrested early Tuesday on charges of trying to illicitly get Mr. Smith on the ballot for this year’s mayoral race in New York City, according to federal prosecutors.
Mr. Smith, a Queens Democrat, and Mr. Halloran, a Queens Republican, were among a half-dozen people arrested by Federal Bureau of Investigation agents in the corruption case. The others were Joseph J. Savino, the Bronx G.O.P. chairman; Vincent Tabone, vice chairman of the Queens Republican Party; and Noramie F. Jasmin, the mayor of the Rockland County village of Spring Valley, and her deputy, Joseph A. Desmaret, according to a criminal complaint.
Mr. Smith, 56, was taken from his home in handcuffs by F.B.I. agents before sunrise and Mr. Halloran, a lawyer, was arrested about the same time, law enforcement authorities said.
Mr. Smith, a contractor and real estate developer, has said he was considering running for mayor as a Republican, and the charges contend that he made payments to Mr. Halloran in exchange for the councilman’s assistance in setting up meetings with Republican leaders as part of an effort to get on the ballot, the complaint said.

bipartisan corruption. wonder how FOX will play that?
"Mr. Smith, a contractor and real estate developer, has said he was considering running for mayor as a Republican, and the charges contend that he made payments to Mr. Halloran in exchange for the councilman’s assistance in setting up meetings with Republican leaders as part of an effort to get on the ballot, the complaint said."

This case is unclear as to what crime was actually committed.

Sounds like normal business practice to pay an agent to set up contacts with potential clients.

However, it is comforting to know that the FBI has solved all violent crime and can now focus on this serious issue.

For sick individuals who have been identified by the mental health system, such as the Aurora shooter and the Virginia tech shooter, involuntary commitment may be necessary. Both were clearly crazy well in advance of their actions.
For others like the Newtown killer, who was not on the radar screen, the problem is more difficult.
How many others have already been identified by mental health professionals as having a high probability of committing mass murder, yet are roaming the streets because of confidentiality laws?
This is a difficult issue, but is being completely ignored by the Obama administration for political reasons, needing to blame firearms for all problems.
I wouldn't say it's being ignored at all. Adam Lanzas mother knew her child had Aspergers syndrome, however, she taught him to shoot and encouraged his playing of violent video games, bought him guns etc.
You're right in that he had not committed any crimes before or had violent incidents, but, this seems to be total denial on the part of the parents. I hope the victims families sue the estate for every cent. That boy should have been around weapons, lets hope this is a lesson for any parent with a disturbed teenager.
Do you think that a person should be picked up and committed just because someone thinks he's acting weird? And, who will make that determination? You're correct in that the VA Tech killer, the therapist or professor saw disturbing signs and reported it, but, could he have been picked up without having done anything? The Columbine killers were teenagers living with parents, why in the hell did they not check their bedrooms? Makes no sense to me.
It seems a common theme that many of these young men felt that they were outcasts and were quite loners, often going unnoticed; until they commit their murders.

There's an investigation; however, the bottom line is this: if he was being harrassed by his neighbors on either side of him and they had his trees cut down; he could have used legal recourse rather than murder. If he did not have a gun; then the gun would not have been seen as the ultimate solution to his problem.
Now, three men are dead, three familes destroyed forever. This could have been avoided.
This type of fighting with neighbors happens often; especially in neighborhoods with homeowner associations or condo committees. People are viscous.

Come on Carol; self nudes in the bathtub and shower are way more intriguing that dogs and landscapes.
Especially since they are self portraits, those are revealing of psyche.
Do you think he was waterboarding himself? He was watching himself in the mirror in the shower! What do those paintings say to you?
You could see a reflection of his face in the mirror simply to show it was him and his back.

There was no nudity in either drawing. Why are you so fixated on that word? Men's upper backs, lower legs and toes are not risque.

A person can sign himself out at any time. It's useless. If the person refuses mental health care there's nothing anyone can do about it.
Wouldn't that be one of the laws that need to be changed then?

Anyone with sufficient evidence and enough witnesses to be considered a threat to society or themselves should be detained indefinitely. Mental health professionals must have the authority to make this decision.

Now you people are getting ridiculous. Pointing out how the right fight tooth &nail to give access to assault type weapons with 150 round clips so we can have more Newtowns is just telling the truth.
He is addressing te mental health issue by 100% background checks.
The Newtown killer faced absolutely no resistance and had plenty of time. He could have killed just as many with a six-shot revolver from the Old West, although he might not have shot each victim as many times.

John Wilkes Booth had a single-shot derringer not effective from a distance of more than a few feet.

The assassins of Garfield and McKinley used revolvers.

Lee Harvey Oswald used a bolt-action rifle.

You're just as stupid as those people in that Georgia town, population 1300 are. Perhaps you should move there, you'd fit right in.
Did you read about that man in NC? His neighbors cut down his trees so he blew them away on Easter and then killed himself.
You yahoos are the dumbest damn people on earth. Perhaps you should all just kill each other and be done with it.
Maybe if the neighbor who got blown away also had a gun he'd still be alive.

Guns aren't the problem. Unless and until most liberals agree that it's laws tying the hands of mental health professionals and recognize mental illness is the problem, the senseless madness will continue. The crazy neighbor could have stabbed him to death or run over him with his car.

Did the man contact the police to have his neighbors arrested for trespassing, vandalism, etc?

If any of the neighbors involved in the tree-cutting survived, are they being prosecuted for their roles in this incident?

Let's get the whole story.

There is a difference between recognizing global temperature cycles and blaming human activity for the cycles.

Looks like "Pierre" is posting from the same big city (Aspers,PA) as earlier poster "Real Dave". Coincidence?

As I said, the list of unintended consequences is enormous.
The list of unintended consequeces of not changing the laws is even more enormous.

The only law that has to change is mental health professionals having the legal authority to detain anyone for a short amount of time with sufficent reason to make a decision if they are a potential threat to society or not.

Mental health professionals are also baffled by the present laws restricting them from keeping the mentally ill off the streets.

Looney Lily gets fixated on a word and runs with it for months and months. like the little kid with the idiot supremist parents who named him Hitler, that's all she posted about. more recently it was about vaginal probes. it was in every post. and she posts A LOT!!! but at least it keeps her off the streets and out of trouble and perenially unproductive. the family trots her out to a fast food place at least once a month. otherwise, she's always on topix posting.
