Very true. We didn't have any need for metal detectors or armed police when I went to school. Hell, they didn't even lock the doors. But back then, most kids had a mom (stay at home usually) and a dad. Kids feared their parents, not the other way around as it is today. Same with teachers. You got out of hand with a teacher, you are going to get swatted a few times. They are not allowed to do that in most schools today.

A friend of mine is a teacher. He told me that if a fight breaks out and some kid hits the teacher trying to break the fight up, you will lose your job if you hit the kid back. All you are allowed to do is block punches.

Then we can't rule out religion which liberals have fought heavily against. Most people went to church on Sunday and everybody believed in heaven and hell. No matter how crazy you were, you feared your God. Today these younger people tell us that God is not to be feared because he is a made-up being.

So today, when some crazy decides to kill a bunch of small innocent children for whatever reason, he doesn't fear God or authority. As far as he's concerned, he's going to be remembered as a hero of sorts, and after he pulls the trigger on himself, it's nothing but blackness. You die just like an animal.
But yeah, it's not liberals fault, it's guns fault.
That is absolutely right,....and I remember how people began to change after the Supreme Court legalized abortion in 1973. How many children are aborted each year?

How many partial birth abortions are performed every year? How many times is a child born only to be given a sharp stick to the eye?

How many millions of human lives have been terminated in the last 40 years?

Abortion is a scourge upon society and civilization.

It's only a matter of time.

It only gets worse.

No one will be able to stop it.

Gods judgement on the nation will come.

I can't point to one particular thing that changed this country. It was the whole liberal agenda if you ask me. But the bottom line is when you lower morality in your society, then those lower moral values produce guys like this school shooter.

We have to look at what changed between 50 years ago and today. War? We always had war. Guns? Nope, we always had guns. Schools? Nope, we had schools and education too. Mentally deranged people? Nope, we had crazies back then too. Television? Nope, television was even more violent when I was a kid. So what were the major changes? Liberalism.

That's right, liberals changed every facet of American society. They've infiltrated our schools, the press, and the unions.

They've disrupted our households and our traditions and fundamentally changed our culture and society.

They've attacked the family,...(through entitlements, and legalized abortion), they've attacked religion, our holidays, our economy, and our Constitutional Rights.

We now live in a corrupt immoral society and there's nothing anybody's gonna be able to do about it.

As incidents of violence continue to increase, all of our Rights will continue to decrease.......liberals will see to it.

Liberals have been around since the 1770's. It was the liberals who decided to break away from England.

If it were up to the conservatives, the US would still be part of England. The Tea baggers are the Tories of 1776.

Exactamundo!

We always had these things, and plenty of crazies too, but now they have become even more embolden and lash out against society more frequently.

Remember those early serial killers from the 60's?....like Richard Speck, the guy who killed 8 student nurses in Chicago?.... That case shocked the nation, but there were serial killers here long before Speck, they've always been around, but they thrive in our current permissive cultureof corruption and immorality.

So then it's only natural that you want to lynch whites and take away their right to vote.

And I don't suppose that you forgot if it wasn't for whites you never would have even had the right to vote.

You know you owe your Freedom to whites.

You just hate us with an undying passion and an all consuming vengeance,.....don't you?

A few are bound to slip through the cracks, but today, it seems like it's going on all the time. Hell, in recent years, we in Cleveland had two mass killings. The most recent one was in one of our schools in Chardon, Ohio. A student went there and shot five other students; several of them died. Then we have the Anthony Sowell case. He killed nearly a dozen women and stored them in his house and garage. I bet you didn't hear about those or perhaps forgot about them.

We are raising egg shells for kids today. Liberalism has to protect them from any negative environment. Nobody likes rejection or being shunned, but it's part of being human. When some of these kids are finally confronted with negativity, they don't know how to handle it. They were isolated from negativity nearly their whole lives. It created the term "going postal" years ago.

What I take note of is how these types of killings don't happen in the inner cities--only in very nice places. Why? Because ghetto kids are not shielded from negativity. They learn how to deal with getting their azz kicked by their parents or fighting out in the street. Nobody is worried about kids being bullied there. They keep score in sports games in school. From young on, they learn how to deal with embarrassment, harassment and even being picked on.

Teabagism has taught a bunch of fat white bigoted mooching draft dodging crybabies if you stomp your feet and cry loud enough and stomp your feet hard enough, someone will listen to you.

Luckily... that has pretty much fallen of as evidenced by the last election where tea bag candidates fell on their faces and all that is needed anymore is a belly laugh tossed in their general direction.

Just a pathological liar.

He puts "liberal" in front of a lie and he doesn't seem to think they have to be even close to being true.

"Violence" in the 50s and 60s TV on rare occasions meant a gun fighter got what he deserved but even then it was usually a camera angle the *implied* he was killed.

I guess we can start a biggest whopper list... update it on every post, see what bubbles to the top.

(it seems) His father was not in the picture because his mother wouldn't allow him to be in the picture outside of demanding the $240K a year in alimony and it is clear his mother had her own problems- her survivalist mentality, it seems, with an extensive arsenal she kept in case (in case of Y2K, in case of the recession, in case Obama tried to take away guns, in case the fiscal cliff...).

ETC.

NO one who knew him, it seems, is surprised.
