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.

He was a thug, or as he called himself, a gansta.

You want to attribute the known facts about GZ to TM.

It is GZ who has had more than his share of interactions with LE, not TM.

This post should be number one. I just looked over 100 war movies made in the 50's, 60's and 70. Apacalypse now is so violent.

Liberals do not fight against religion. We just don't want our children to be indoctrinated at school with a brand of religion filled with hate.
Obviously the dead mother was not a liberal, she was a gun nut and look at the price society is paying.
It's not the gun's fault. A gun in an inanimate object and doesn't murder on it's own.
So what you are telling me is that all liberals resist firearms? What are you going to say if it's found she was a hard core leftist?

This man was insane, there has always be insanity. The problem is, he had access to multiple guns. He had a father who didn't try to take control of the situation and a mother who tried but couldn't.
Really? Please post your link on where you learned this information. Or are you just speculating as you seem to do here?

Yes, TV was more violent back in the days. Multiple Westerns, police shows and yes, murder investigation shows. Cops shooting criminals, war series that were on every week, cowboys killing Indians, Clint Eastwood movies. All violent.

<quoted text>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.
Wrong.

We've also always had liberalism. At least thats what the GOP said during FDR's time. And your other points need updating as well.

For example, television. No way can you compare television and media of today with 50 years ago. Media has changed the way politicians campaign, how news is cycled and recycled, the 24/7 prevalence of news, etc.

You also leave out the ultra violence of video games. Which, according to mental health experts, does have a disastrous impact on society.

I know, I know. Truth matters not to you. As long as you can blame the liberals, your mind is soothed.

HA!

Another example would be mentally deranged people. None other than one of your cohorts posted on this thread not long ago that Reagan's mental health legacy has not been corrected.

In your rush to blame liberalism for society's ills, try not stumbling over Truth and Facts next time.

They're your friends, not enemies. Set yourself free.

Your ability to read minds is amazing. But then again, all liberal speculations lead to race or homophobe. You guys don't have an argument without it.
