Mety any live bears whilst walking with children lately? Care to ezplain to us why the teacher needed 2 guns and a semi-automatic rifle to "protect" herself along with 30-bullet magazines and hundreds of rounds of ammunition? Don't you think that purchases of such magazines and so many rounds would raise many red flags were there an iota of gun control?

When did the shooting stop at Sandy Hook elementary school? When more guns showed up. The perp apparently shot himself when the cops showed up.
Just think, what if just one of those teachers had a concealed carry permit!!!
Guns save lives. That is why cops carry them!
How utterly ridiculous. Why, instead, don't you ask what this poor "intellectutally disturbed" person was doing with three firearms? And why his mother, as I said earlier, in order to "protect herself", according to birthers though we'll never know for sure why she had all those guns, was allowed to buy two handguns, a semi-automatic rifle , 30-round magazines (how many attackers was she anticipating?) and hundreds of rounds of ammunition? At one point when this sweet kindergarten teacher was buying enough fire power to kill hundreds, should red flags not have been raisede? Don't you think there should be a control over such zany and suspicious purchases, even if purcahsed in separate establishments through some kind of central control? Easy enough jobs in this computerized world, no?

You funny man GB!
Typical Libtardian response. You are clueless to what it actually means but the sound bite seems good so you toss it out trying to degrade someone's point of view.
We all know you Libtards are not patriots and you would sell our country to the highest bidder which is currently .... China.
You pass laws that make doing business in America very expensive which drives the jobs overseas and then you blame American businessmen (who are mostly Conservatives).
I am proud to be an American and I thank God I was born here. And that is why millions of people from all over this Earth want to come here even at the peril of losing their lives.
Nothing wrong with Canada, Australia and many other countries but they are usually a second choice for those seeking freedom.
Patriotism is the last refuge of a scoundrel.

Boswell tells us that Samuel Johnson made this famous pronouncement that patriotism is the last refuge of a scoundrel on the evening of April 7, 1775. He doesn't provide any context for how the remark arose, so we don't really know for sure what was on Johnson's mind at the time.

However, Boswell assures us that Johnson was not indicting patriotism in general, only false patriotism.

For more of Samuel Johnson's thoughts on patriotism in general, go to the patriotism page.

BTW, please supply statistics as to how many murders were committed in 2011 by hammers vs guns in the U.S. How ridiculous. Ban cars, trucks, planes, butcher knives, baseball bats, etc. Problem is, all of the foregoing implements have constructive and every-day useful uses, apart from occasionally used for harming people. Guns, on the other hand, have ONE and ONE purpose only ; KILL. And don't give me that crap about target and skeet shooting.

I didn't think so.
God, you are dense. You don't know the difference between East and West Europe, do you? I explained to you why East Europe was different, its post-ward history, what happened to weapons sold on black market by departing Russians and demobilized east Europe military. Give East Europe another 20 years to catch up to the west and you'll see murder rates by guns equal that of western Europe. Fact is, Western Europe has seen nothing but democracies, very prosperous as compared to eastern Europe, and no oversupply of illegal arms that do drive citizens to crime because of unfavourable economic circumstances. You forgot to mention Australia, NZ, Japan, Canada, South Korea, Scandinavia, all democracies with strict gun laws like western Europe. I know you'll jump all over the Norway massacres of 77 people, a very sad but once-in-a-lifetime incident. In spite of that, Norway, pop 10 million, had 90 murders for the whole year, less than Atlanta.

Would be healthy for you to get out, travel the world a bit, see what makes OTHER peoples tick.

Well, citizens maybe called to protect more than their families. Do you know that every adult male in Switzerland has mandatory military training? And they take their FULLY-AUTOMATIC assault rifles home with them with their basic load of ammo. And after fulfilling their military obligation they keep their weapons!!!

And obviously , you did not read all of my post telling you why Eastern Europe should not be included in the gun/murder statistics. Not now, as they were part of the Soviet Union hegemony until 1989 after which all hell broke loose. From that time on and up to today, do NOT put them in the same bag with Western Europe. In 20 years maybe, not now. You need to read up a bit, as you're not too too well informed, are you?

'Our family is grieving along with all those who have been affected by this enormous tragedy.'
He said that all living members of the Lanza family, including himself and Adam's older brother Ryan, have been fully cooperating with police and plan to help in any way that they can as the repercussions of the shooting are felt.

Just donated my hard earned money to Wikipedia so your lazy ass could use it free Rogue. How about you donate a few bucks?
Dear Poppo,
Thank you for donating to the Wikimedia Foundation. You are wonderful!
It's easy to ignore our fundraising banners, and I'm really glad you didn't. This is how Wikipedia pays its bills --- people like you giving us money, so we can keep the site freely available for everyone around the world.
People tell me they donate to Wikipedia because they find it useful, and they trust it because even though it's not perfect, they know it's written for them. Wikipedia isn’t meant to advance somebody's PR agenda or push a particular ideology, or to persuade you to believe something that's not true. We aim to tell the truth, and we can do that because of you. The fact that you fund the site keeps us independent and able to deliver what you need and want from Wikipedia. Exactly as it should be.
You should know: your donation isn’t just covering your own costs. The average donor is paying for his or her own use of Wikipedia, plus the costs of hundreds of other people. Your donation keeps Wikipedia available for an ambitious kid in Bangalore who’s teaching herself computer programming. A middle-aged homemaker in Vienna who’s just been diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease. A novelist researching 1850s Britain. A 10-year-old in San Salvador who’s just discovered Carl Sagan.
On behalf of those people, and the half-billion other readers of Wikipedia and its sister sites and projects, I thank you for joining us in our effort to make the sum of all human knowledge available for everyone. Your donation makes the world a better place. Thank you.
Most people don't know Wikipedia's run by a non-profit. Please consider sharing this e-mail with a few of your friends to encourage them to donate too. And if you're interested, you should try adding some new information to Wikipedia. If you see a typo or other small mistake, please fix it, and if you find something missing, please add it. There are resources here that can help you get started. Don't worry about making a mistake: that's normal when people first start editing and if it happens, other Wikipedians will be happy to fix it for you.
I appreciate your trust in us, and I promise you we'll use your money well.
Thanks,

22 kids slashed in knife attack at Chinese elementary school
2 days ago
Chinese state media sources report a knife-wielding man slashed 22 children at an elementary school in Henan province. The man attacked the children at the gate of a school in Chenpeng village and also wounded one adult, according to the Xinhua news agency. Police arrested a 36-year-old man, identified as villager Min Yingjun, and while the extent of the injuries inflicted by the attacker is still unclear, there have been no fatalities reported.

As the rich flee France!!!
French paper says actor Gerard Depardieu wants to surrender passport in dispute over taxes; By Elaine Ganley, The Associated Press |
PARIS - Gerard Depardieu, one of France's best-known actors, has chastised his country's Socialist prime minister for insulting remarks over his decision to move to tax-friendly Belgium and said in an open letter published Sunday that he's turning in his passport.
The letter, which the weekly Le Journal du Dimanche said was penned by Depardieu, quickly propelled him into the spotlight, not for his acclaimed acting skills but for raising the sensitive issue of tax exiles as France looks to fill state coffers with a stiff tax on the rich.
"We no longer have the same country. I'm a true European, a citizen of the world," Depardieu wrote in the letter. He said his 2012 tax bill — 85 per cent of his revenue — is fully paid.
Depardieu, who turns 64 this month, said he has worked since the age of 14, first as a printer, and that in last 45 years he has paid €145 million ($190 million) in taxes.
"I hand over my passport to you and my social security card, which I have never used," the letter said, referring to Prime Minister Jean-Marc Ayrault.
Last week, Ayrault called Depardieu "pathetic" and "unpatriotic" for the actor's decision to move to Nechin, a Belgian village barely a mile (1.6 kilometres) across the border from Lille in northern France. Nechin has drawn other high-earning French residents.
The letter drew quick reaction but little sympathy.
Culture Minister Aurelie Filippetti said she was "scandalized" by Depardieu's decision to turn in his passport. "French citizenship, it's an honour," she said on BFM-TV. "It is rights and duties, too, among them to be able to pay taxes."
Do you know Gérard Depardieu? He is your holier-than-thou big thug actor (I love him as an actor, he's prodigious,(so's his weight), funny, good actor) who garners huge salaries for his movies. As much a hero in France and Europe as is George Clooney in the States.

Unfortunately, Depardieu is greedy. Yes, he pays a lot of taxes, has boasted of so doing, paying more than $200 miilion Euros in his lifetime. Yet , he fails to tell how much he's made. He owns a 5000 sq ft mansion in the centre of Paris, no doubt worth millions, a vineyard in the south of France, and his wines sell like crazy. He's super rich, He eserves much credit, but his country has contributed to making him a VERY RICH MAN, subsidizing many of his movies (in smaller markets like France, govt MUST do that, as market is too small, specially in French) yet, he wants more. He doesn't have enough. He's GREEDY, like most rich men. Screw him. He'll still have to make movies in France, can't move his vineyard to Belgium so he'll still be paying the big tax. Good.
