The family of Aaron Alexis, the man who shot and killed 12 people during a murderous rampage at Washington D.C.'s Navy Yard yesterday, has issued a statement to the families of those who lost loved ones apologizing for their "inconvenience."

Uh oh. I'll bet they can't read "cursive" either.

The idea that recent mass shooters are mostly registered Democrats is a myth

Based on the assertions of Roger Hedgecock a right-wing radio show host, the meme that the five worst recent mass shootings were committed by registered Democrats is making its way through e-mail chains and social media. Hedgecock asserts, without providing any evidence or sources, that the Ft. Hood shooter, the Virginia Tech shooter, the Aurora Theater shooter and Adam Lanza of Sandy Hook infamy were all “registered Democrats”. He acknowledges that Klebold and Harris (the Columbine Colorado shooters) were too young to be registered voters but asserts, again without providing any evidence, that Harris and Klebold’s parents were progressives or liberal Democrats. All of these charges are utterly baseless and perhaps do not even deserve a response. However, given the effectiveness of right-wing lies in saturating social media and duping the incurious (a far too numerous segment of the population), some more detailed debunking is in order.

It's not going away as quietly as Obama and his minions had hoped.
"In the next two weeks, the House Foreign Affairs, Armed Services, Government Oversight and Reform, and Intelligence Committees will all hold hearings looking into different aspects of the Benghazi attacks – beginning with an Intelligence Committee hearing later this week on the lack of progress in the investigation and apprehension of the perpetrators of those attacks. 60 Minutes is planning to air its investigation into the Benghazi attacks later this fall."

Thank goodness. At least some on Capital Hill are doing their job.
No, they're not doing their jobs you insufferable twit! They're wasting time and taxpayer money flogging a dead horse. Congress has gotten all the information that's out there and there's no evidence of any kind of cover-up of any kind. This is a blatantly partisan witch hunt whose only purpose is to damage Hillary Clinton for 2016. The Republicans are using taxpayer money to further their own partisan goals. Fortunately most of the American people aren't as stupid as you are.

I can't help it if you dumbassses can't post about Obama without a racial slur. Its not my fault your racism is so deeply imbedded in your brain that you can't help yourself.

Th most recent Demcorat mass murderer had a security clearance. Most likely, it was a secret clearance.
It became very quickly obvious this person should never have been given a clearance.
If he weren't black, he never would have passed the screening.
But, if he didn't have a security clearance, he would have just murdered defenseless white people at some other location.
There are many black people working at the Navy Yard.
No black people were murdered.
I suppose this is someone else who could have been Obama's son.
Where is Obama on this, what? No race card from the Teleprompter Stooge & Eric Holdout like with Hoodie the thug?

The DemocRATS are eerily silent hypocrites. This Democrat should have never had guns or a clearance.

Meanwhile the left/DemocRATS are busy harassing the Tea Party, while the real racists & thug DemocRATS continue killing people.

It appears we have another mass murdering Democrat.
It should be overwhelmingly obvious by now mass murderers are attracted to the Democratic Party: DC sniper, Virginia Tech, Columbine, Fort Hood, Aurora theater, Sandy Hook, and now the Washington Navy Yard. The events when Democrats commit mass murder are so common, it's difficult to remember all of them.
Mass murderers are attracted to the Democratic Party. The mass murdering Democrats that do the killing themselves are obvious. What isn't obvious is the mass murderers that don't do the killing themselves, like Ho Chi Minh, Mao, Stalin and Hitler.
How many of those are in the Democratic Party? And, how many Eichmans and Bormanns are there in the Democratic Party? Recent history identifies one mass murderer used by the Democrats: Larry Potts (headed both the Ruby Ridge assassinations and Waco mass murders), and was nominated by Bill Clinton to be the number two man in the FBI in charge of the domestic agenda.
Still believing those e-mails.

CHARLESTON, W.Va.-- On the same day NASA officials announced that Voyager 1 had become the first spacecraft to leave the solar system, the National Radio Astronomy Observatory announced that its Green Bank Telescope had pinpointed Voyager's radio signal more than 11 billion miles away.
On Thursday, NASA announced that 36 years after its launch, the plutonium-powered spacecraft had passed through the heliosphere -- the hot plasma bubble surrounding the solar system -- and escaped the sun's influence.
Voyager 1, headed away from the sun at a speed of about 38,000 miles per hour, will continue to observe exotic particles from never-explored parts of the universe, and radio data back to Earth.
While NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory continually tracks Voyager using a network of antennas and communication facilities located in California, Spain and Australia, NRAO astronomers believe they can locate Voyager's position on the sky with unprecedented precision.
Although Voyager's main transmitter operates at only 22 watts -- about the same power used by a car-mounted police radio or a refrigerator light bulb -- its signal is extremely strong when compared to most natural objects studied by radio telescopes.
West Virginia's Green Bank Telescope easily detected Voyager's signal, picking it out from background radio noise in less than one second, according to the NRAO.
"Voyager is the first manmade object to penetrate the interstellar medium, and we really want to be able to receive the data from this new frontier," NRAO scientist Toney Minter, who oversaw the Green Bank observations, said in a news release. "This information will provide many clues about how the interstellar medium behaves and how the sun interacts with it."

Flack believes that NASA launched Voyager over 35 years ago, it still works & they know where it is.

But when NASA says Man Made Global Warming is real, they are liars.

Okay try to hear me out. Good morning! Here are my reasons that the Navy Yard shooting was a false flag event. 1) Minority gunman. By the shooter being a minority it is assumed that the whites will be on board for whatever changes need to be made to law. 2) gunman "legally" purchased the weapons. This closes the "loophole" that anyone can get a gun easily illegally. 3) Gunman has documented mental issues. Which means if we stop all "crazies" from getting guns than there will be no more of this violence, however the US Gov't also classifies 70% of its citizens as being mentally ill.

This FF event brought to you by the committee to abolish the 2nd Amendment.

Big Business pushes Congress for more foreign workers while laying off Americans
The Big Business lobby stepped up its game earlier this week when human resource officers from more than 100 large corporations sent a letter to House Leadership pushing for an immigration bill that would grant a blanket amnesty and provide dramatic increases in the number of work permits given to new foreign workers each year. It coincided with a "Day of Action" organized by FWD.us - the organization co-founded by Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg.
A few of the companies that signed the letter included: General Electric, Disney, Marriott, Hilton, McDonalds, Wendy's, Coca-Cola, Cheesecake Factory, Cisco, and Verizon.
Last week's monthly unemployment report from the Bureau of Labor Statistics depicted a declining situation for American workers. More than half a million working-aged Americans left the labor force, raising the total number to more than 90 million. Plus, a slightly better report from July was revised to show that only 104,000 new jobs were created that month compared to the 162,000 jobs first thought. In June, BLS reported that 195,000 jobs had been created, but last week's report revised the number down to 172,000.
Compare those new job numbers with the 125,000 new work permits issued each month to foreign workers.

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 Democrat extremist; Deranged liberal

Chris Jordan Dorner ~~~ Registered Democrat, Negro Deranged Obama Supporter, Ex-Cop, Ex-Naval Intelligence Officer, Cold Blooded Killer

Aaron Alexis ~~~ DC Navy Yard mass murderer, Negro, Registered Democrat, deranged Obama Supporter...

Add a couple more, actually from D.C.(snipers) black Democrats a while back:

John Allen Muhammad (December 31, 1960 – November 10, 2009) was an American convicted murderer from Baton Rouge, Louisiana. He, along with his seventeen-year-old partner, Lee Boyd Malvo, carried out the Beltway sniper attacks of October 2002, killing at least 10 people. Muhammad and Malvo were arrested in connection with the attacks on October 24, 2002, following tips from alert citizens.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/John_Allen_Muham...

Lee Boyd Malvo (born February 18, 1985), also known as John Lee Malvo, is a Jamaican-American convicted murderer who, along with John Allen Muhammad, committed murders in connection with the Beltway sniper attacks in the Washington Metropolitan Area over a three-week period in October 2002.

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.

and so forth.....

but let's see you cite a right wing email that's been debunked so many times it should be in the FOX hall of fame.
