Par for the course, this is typical of the level of discourse as well as a good example of some people's willingness to beleive unsubstantiated editorial opinions without bothering to check the facts.

The right will never let the facts get in the way of a good lie.

I imagine you must be fit to be tied over the media calling people murderers before checking the facts in AZ? A few days later we discovered the perp's profile fit's that of a typical spoon-fed democRat snot nosed twit to the t.
No matter what's been said and done or how you slice and dice it, at the end of the day it's still ObamaCarePoo...that's par for the course.

What a stretch…Check your sources before you regurgitate on this forum. How about checking the author and the newspaper for credibility instead of allowing them to poop in your ear? Otherwise, be a good useful idiot and stick a convenient roll of toilet paper on your nose.

The Washington Post? Not credible?
How about the author of the viral e-mail. David Kithil. Even he admits that his opinion piece is old and much of what he wrote about isn't in the current law.
"What I wrote about was a bill that never became law," Kithil said in a telephone interview Thursday. He said he has not had an opportunity to go through the final bill, but knows that some of the items that had concerned him were not enacted into law.
Do try reading the article and know what you're talking about before you open your mouth to stick your foot in it. The viral e-mail is used to confuse ignorant people like you. Obviously it worked.

By all accounts the guy was insane and everyone should wait until the facts are determined before pointing fingers. The perp's profile is still unknown other than it is safe to say he was crazy. Your assumption that he fits any profile is no better than those you criticise for doing the same.

Another poster incapable of civilised or logical discourse.
