As long as the far-left keeps fanning the flames of hate and encouraging the young to participate in the propaganda tool of class warfare, these incidents will remain a mainstay of the news, unfortunately.

Let's face it: it's Obama's Occupy Wallstreet and their protesters who have created anarchy when they protest.

They are aggressive, lawbreakers and the ugly part of America.

NO to Obama and his aggressive UnAmerican followers.

A civil uprising encouraged and endorsed by Obama.

The Obama Way- violence, destruction of property, hatred.

Obama eggs on these destructive groups. He encourages and agitates.

When was the last time Obama had good things to say about Americans?

According to Obama: America is bad and Americans are the worst people on the planet.

Time to stop this negative Obama talk about America. Obama INSTIGATES division, negativity.

NO in NOvember!

REclaim our country. Don't let it decline.

You know, after seeing more of the stories coming out everyday in the wake of the shootings. I have not seen one thing answered yet.

Apparently this guy was seeing a psychiatrist. Well, what drugs was this guy on? Why is the court not releasing his medical records to show what was prescribed to him?

As we have seen over the years in regards to these whacko's going on shooting rampages, they all have 1 thing in common. They were all on some form of anti-depressants. The guy in NY that shot up the Jewish center was on Prozac. The guy who shot at the pentagon a couple of years ago was on Xanax.

Nidal Hassan the Fort Hood shooter was working in the Army as a psychiatrist and was self prescribing antidepressants.

So I think it would be a very interesting fact to see what was being prescribed to Holmes. Of course with the money that big pharma has, I doubt they will let this information out to the general public. Imagine the backlash from the public if they find out Holmes was on antidepressants.

Prozac Side Effects
Insomnia, weakness, and loss of appetite are among the most common side effects reported with Prozac. Some of the side effects that are rare (seen in less than 1 percent of patients) include canker sores, high cholesterol, and acne. In most cases, side effects of Prozac are minor and either do not require medical attention or can be treated easily. However, if you develop any serious problems, such as suicidal thoughts or behavior, hallucinations, or panic attacks, notify your healthcare provider immediately.

One thing for me stands out: "if you develop any serious problems, such as suicidal thoughts or behavior, hallucinations, or panic attacks"

Federal Court finds Obama appointees interfered with New Black Panther prosecution

Pres. Obama MIA on defense cuts, national security? WHAT A LEADER……………foreeeeeeeeeeeeeeee eeeeeeeeeee.

• Obama Takes a Risk on Bubba for Bailout With Blue Collar Voters
If President Obama can’t improve his standing with working-class, white voters he is facing a landslide defeat in the fall. And with the stakes so high, the president is again forced to turn to his most dangerous ally: former President Bill Clinton. Will Obama’s failure to back workers by not going to Wisconsin cause a domino effect with voters in other states?

• Top Republican warns security leaks haven't stopped despite controversy
Without providing specifics about the new leaks, Rep. Mike Rogers, R-Mich., said the damaging release of sensitive information continues.

• Republicans decry 'deadly' policy as report shows illegal immigrants committing new crimes

Americans are stupid, and deserve what they get. Ten, 20, 50, a thousand such massacres and we'd still be wringing our hands or shouting out 'You'll never take our guns!'

We're violent morons, and we deserve each other. Solving problems with violence has ALWAYS been The American Way.

More sick nuttery from the radical right. Their bigotry towards immigrants does NOT make us safer, this is NOT about "crimes," calling it "Deadly" is sheer idiocy.
And the racist BS about the "New Black Panthers" is insane, they're absolutely meaningless, harmless, stupid TINY group ONLY being talked about because the hard right wants to PRETEND this is what people who believe in black equality are like. They are NOT the real Black Panthers.

The massive hypocrisy of the claim the media is "liberal" revealed.
One reporter, one time, mistakenly said the shooter was a tea-party affiliated NRA member. It was immediately taken back and apologies and correction issued.
Meanwhile, the 2nd largest newspaper in the UK reported that he belonged to the NON-EXISTENT "Occupy Black Bloc", a favorite bogeyman of the hard right. And STILL the claim lives on, and nobody says the media is conservative...even though there's been virtually NO decent coverage of Occupy, the vital issues they're raising are STILL ignored by the media, and the police brutality and mistreatment of them is ignored.
As for the "Black Bloc" it's been clearly shown that the best know case involving them was, in fact, police attempts at infiltrating and trying to discredit peaceful protests at the G8 in Toronto. Cointelpro never ended.

Gravediggers--"Let's face it: it's Obama's Occupy Wallstreet"

Lie. Obama has NOTHING to do with Occupy, and MOST Occupy protesters are as disgusted with Obama as with the Republicans. NO, we are NOT aligned with moderate Democrats, that's NOT the answer to the problem.

"and their protesters who have created anarchy when they protest."

Lie. Peaceful protests are not anarchy. The ENTIRETY of the violence there has been from the cops, not the protesters.

"They are aggressive, lawbreakers and the ugly part of America."

Lie. They are only "aggressive" in fighting the REAL ugly part of America, the inequality and poverty that is killing hundreds of thousands of people every year. THAT is the ugly part of America, the greed and people like you defending it.

"NO to Obama and his aggressive UnAmerican followers."

Lie. There is nothing REMOTELY un-American about fighting for equality and justice, the most American of principles.

"A civil uprising encouraged and endorsed by Obama."

Yeah, just like the civil rights protests of the 60s, also opposed by the hard right under the despicable banner of "law and order".

"The Obama Way- violence, destruction of property, hatred."

Lie. Again, Occupy is VICTIMS of violence, not causing it, they're not destroying property and it shows your total lack of decency that you ignore the human beings DYING from poverty but care about property. And it is YOU promoting hatred, not them. Equality isn't hatred. Justice isn't hatred.

"Obama eggs on these destructive groups."

Lie. There's nothing remotely destructive about Occupy, and again Obama has NOTHING to do with them. He's not "egged on" anything, and if he'd done nothing but criticize and blast us it would not have effected us ONE DAMN BIT.

"He encourages and agitates."

Agitator. The KKK fought us in the 60s because we were "agitators." The right never wants to see "agitators," those who cause trouble for the powers that be.
You know...like the founders of this nation.

"When was the last time Obama had good things to say about Americans?"

Every single day.
And by the way, idiot, the protesters are Americans, too.

"According to Obama: America is bad and Americans are the worst people on the planet."

Lie. He's never said anything REMOTELY CLOSE to this.

"Time to stop this negative Obama talk about America. Obama INSTIGATES division, negativity."

Liar. He has NEVER, EVER done this. What needs to stop is the negative LIES about those who fight for justice and equality instead of shilling for Wall Street and the wealthy few.

"NO in NOvember!"

Yes, let's give the wealthy ANOTHER tax cut, and kill MORE children with poverty!

"REclaim our country. Don't let it decline."

Go to hell. It's no more your country than ours. Those protesters belong to this nation every bit as much as you do. And, contrary to your racist lies, so does President Obama.
Our nation's not in decline. You want to "reclaim" this country for the white, rich, heterosexual, conservative Christian male people and drive out all those other people.
And you claim WE promote "hate"? Hysterical hypocrisy.

Despicable trash. It is the RIGHT fanning flames of hate, not the left. Class warfare isn't based in propaganda. Poverty is REAL, inequality is REAL, and fighting for justice as hundreds of thousands die from poverty every year isn't hate, it's caring about other people, instead of just yourself.

And fighting for economic justice has ABSOLUTELY NOTHING WHATSOEVER to do with ANY of these shootings. Nothing.
