In order to understand the "why", how about looking at peer countries that have anywhere from 3 to 25 times fewer firearm murders? I don't suppose gun control, for one, would have anything to do with it?

Well Jacqueau, I waited until most of the facts were in and at least one of his victims was .... black. I have not heard of him making any racists comments either. Zero plus zero still equals ... zero, doesn't it!
Why I think you are racist just because I am a Conservative and that makes YOU the racist!
But I did noticed the first time I heard someone describe his as "black'. Everyone was describing him as six foot tall and bald but no one mentioned his race until I heard a black male reporter interviewing a white woman with a black man. When asked what race the man was the white woman said he was dark complected but when he asked the black man he said the shooter was "black"! Why was it so wrong to describe his race? Even the police avoided his racial description!!!
Did I ever say it was wrong to say he was black? But why even say it? Is the pic not enough? Idon't give a hoot that he is black, but you do and I know you're thinking "At last, a black mass killer, about time". And you'll come back on that, you can't help it. Already, you've said he's a democrat, am still waiting for confirmation on that. And what if he is?

Scooter Libby Took The Blame To Cover Bush, Cheney, Rove And The Leo Strauss Agenda: The Jig Is Up !/June 3, 1997 / http://tinyurl.com/6c3l
American foreign and defense policy is adrift. Conservatives have criticized the incoherent policies of the Clinton Administration. They have also resisted isolationist impulses from within their own ranks. But conservatives have not confidently advanced a strategic vision of America's role in the world. They have not set forth guiding principles for American foreign policy. They have allowed differences over tactics to obscure potential agreement on strategic objectives. And they have not fought for a defense budget that would maintain American security and advance American interests in the new century.
We aim to change this. We aim to make the case and rally support for American global leadership.

Leo Strauss' Philosophy of Deception
http://tinyurl.com/5tjkx May 19, 2003
Many neoconservatives like Paul Wolfowitz are disciples of a philosopher who believed that the elite should use deception, religious fervor and perpetual war to control the ignorant masses.
What would you do if you wanted to topple Saddam Hussein, but your intelligence agencies couldn't find the evidence to justify a war?
A follower of Leo Strauss may just hire the "right" kind of men to get the job done – people with the intellect, acuity, and, if necessary, the political commitment, polemical skills, and, above all, the imagination to find the evidence that career intelligence officers could not detect.
The "right" man for Deputy Defense Secretary Paul Wolfowitz, suggests Seymour Hersh in his recent New Yorker article entitled 'Selective Intelligence,' was Abram Shulsky, director of the Office of Special Plans (OSP)– an agency created specifically to find the evidence of WMDs and/or links with Al Qaeda, piece it together, and clinch the case for the invasion of Iraq.
Like Wolfowitz, Shulsky is a student of an obscure German Jewish political philosopher named Leo Strauss who arrived in the United States in 1938. Strauss taught at several major universities, including Wolfowitz and Shulsky's alma mater, the University of Chicago, before his death in 1973./ http://www.alternet.org/story/15935

Harper, Bush Share Roots in Controversial Philosophy
http://tinyurl.com/yxcdj3 November 29, 2005
Close advisors schooled in 'the noble lie' and 'regime change'.
What do close advisors to Stephen Harper and George W. Bush have in common? They reflect the disturbing teachings of Leo Strauss, the German-Jewish émigré who spawned the neoconservative movement.
Strauss, who died in 1973, believed in the inherent inequality of humanity. Most people, he famously taught, are too stupid to make informed decisions about their political affairs. Elite philosophers must decide on affairs of state for us.
In Washington, Straussians exert powerful influence from within the inner circle of the White House. In Canada, they roost, for now, in the so-called Calgary School, guiding Harper in framing his election strategies. What preoccupies Straussians in both places is the question of "regime change." http://thetyee.ca/Mediacheck/2005/11/29/Harpe...

Scandal? What Scandal?(Washington Post, 10/11/87).
Bush's Iran-Contra appointees are barely a story
September 1, 2001 / http://tinyurl.com/klqwolw

Throughout the summer of 2001, the media were profligate with resources for the Chandra Levy story, excavating every corner of her and Rep. Gary Condit's past to unearth a prurient bounty of personal detail. That level of investigative vigor mighthave exposed far more vital information had it been applied to Bush's appointment of numerous Iran-Contra veterans to key posts.

But with a few admirable exceptions, news stories about Elliot Abrams, John Negroponte and Otto Reich have largely relied on past reporting and he-said, she-said soundbites by the usual supporters and critics, rather than in-depth investigations into their complicity in one of the bloodiest scandals of the past 20 years. And their guilt is based not on speculation or gossip, but on hard evidence that they aided torturers and death squads,circumvented Congress and the Constitution, and deceived the American people.

John Negroponte, as ambassador to Honduras from 1981-85, covered up human rights abuses by the CIA-trained Battalion 316. He is Bush's choice for U.S. ambassador to the U.N. and, as Extra! went to press, was expected to clear Senate confirmation hearings.

Elliott Abrams, an assistant secretary of state under Reagan, pleaded guilty in 1991 to two counts of withholding evidence from Congress (i.e., lying) over his role in the Iran-Contra affair. Bush I pardoned him; Bush II has appointed him to the National SecurityCouncil as director of its office for democracy, human rights and international operations. The post requires no Senate approval.

Otto Reich's nomination as assistant secretary of state for Western Hemisphere affairs, the top post for Latin America, was predicted to draw the most congressional fire. Reich was head of the now-defunct Office for Public Diplomacy (OPD), which the House Committee on Foreign Affairs censured for "prohibited, covert propaganda activities"

No, I'm not. Leave the guns as is. Too late to do anything about them and those that already possess them are at this point not likely to use them to kill someone. BUT, ban all new handguns except in very exceptional cases, ban all semi-automatic and AK-type machine guns, do a check, a real check, on every firearm sold from now on, like the majority of the people want. Congressman and senators are beholden to their biggest fundraiser, the NRA instead of the will of the people WHO WANT SOME FORM OF GUN CONTROL. Once gun controls are in place, it'll take a while for the murder rate to go down, but hell, it's well worth the wait, no?

Once you've got gun control working, then you can start looking at the "why" you've mentioned. Compare with peer countries, and check their education tuition right up to university. I hear Harvard is $45,000 a year, some even costlier. Ridiculous. For the rich. No, not even the rich. The filthy rich. Compared to that, La Sorbonne, Heidelburg, University of Rome, of Madrid, Universite libre de Bruxelles, etc, are free. As is health care, workplace benefits, access to professionals like doctors, shrinks etc (they are all free), much longer vacation that would make you dream and so forth. All these factors are part of the happiness index that the UN just came out with and perhaps lessen the desire to kill one's neighbour.

Do all the other countries with fewer firearm murders have better population distribution, fewer minorities of all races, colours? Nope. Just visit France, the UK, Italy, etc, and look around you. Teeming with non-Caucassians. And they are a HUGE problem, some of them, humongous and very costly.

Has all of this "largesse" stretched these countries' finances? Yes, no doubt. Are they better off financially than the US? Assuredly not. Are they worst off financially than the US? Assuredly not, and finally they're not that bad, when you know they have few, nlike the US, very few, natural resources, which are mostly all imported.

Why is it that where the law abiding citizen is permitted to carry a concealed weapon that the murder and violent crime rate has been going down? Also, stop and frisk searches have substantially reduced the murder rate in New York, but a liberal Judge who lives in a protected suburban community says they can't do that. We have more guns and ammunition in our society then ever and the murder rate has been dropping for over a decade, why is that?

"But most blacks are angry and violent by nature, so therefore they are miserable when they run the society. " FALSE.

"The Norwegian countries are still predominantly white. They are socialist, but their culture of productive and organized communities functions." True 20 years ago, less and less so as poorer peoples migrate, are finding their way to these "prosperous" Scandinavian countries. Crime is up, and increasing every year, they just don't broadcast it. Poverty breeds crime, you should know that.

" Most of Africa is still crapping in the same river they drink from when their not killing one another". That is mean and untrue in most cases. They lack the means and the expertise to assure themselves clean drinking water, true. We do. You do. Yet, you tell me where your sewer pipes discharge their waste waters in the river and how far from that, often downstream, is your water supply drawn from? Why do you think we drink so much bottled water? We don't trust our water supply, is all. They've polluted their drinking water unknowingly, we pollute ours knowingly.

"when not killing one another (Africans)" ? Are you kidding? After thousands of years of wars, inquisition, never mind, too many to mention, the slaughter of Jews by Hitler, you talk about Africans killing one another? Are you daf? They could start killing by the thousands daily and that wouldn't even put a dent in WWII killed alone, more than 50 million, with the BLACKS or AFRICANS having nothing to do with it, except forced to fight by the British (Gurkas) and Fusiliers Senegalais by the French.

Chicago, Philadelphia, St.Louis, Detroit, etc. Your friend LRS says to search for the "why". Blacks are no more inherently violent than whites, and I'm well placed to say that. No more, no less, same human nature. More unemployment, poor education, discrimination and don't tell me discrimination is dead. But yes, something has to give, there is too much black violence. Check the causes, the "why" to start with.

Liberal progressives, as politicians, are, to me at least, no better, no worse than conservatives or republicans. They , or most of them, are looking after number 1 : Them. But, I maintain and will insist that liberal progressives leave a bit more of the pie for the taxpayer, for the poor jerk. They are more humane. Every piece of legislation, from paid vacation to 5-day week to unemployment insurance to social security~pensions ,and some health care when the republicans will let them, are liberal-progressive initiatives. Same here in Canada.

No, you cannot be the only one that is right. The only one in step. Look around you, take the time to read on other US-like "have" democracies. You're wrong.

You bring in the UN. Why? You are once more totally irrelevant. I mentioned countries, I NEVER mentioned or brought the UN into this discussion. What does the UN, as maligned as it is, have to do with yesterday's massacre in Washington? And the massacres I listed?

And the UN is an amalgamation of 195 countries, a sum of its parts of which you and we are members. It's as good or bad as its members, but has been, is very useful. One of its most useful functions has been to declare that Saddam had no WMDs. They were right. GWB didn't listen. UN Rights council is all screwed up, we know that. What's it got to do with what we are talking about? Try to be consequent.

Finally, you wrote:

"I think most people want the laws we have, enforced!". You lie. You know that is patently untrue. At the time of the gun control vote, over 55% of Americans favoured strengthened gun laws. After yesterday's massacre, outrage all over the country once more, yet gun nuts are already going on the offensive in order to retain the status quo.

I write my opinions, you could discuss them, but no, you come up with the above crappy reply, with irrelevant UN mention and ending with a lie. Dommage.

With Daley and Immelt on board, our president is waltzing with the devil.
February 7, 2011 / http://tinyurl.com/46s7ea3
When you dance with the devil, never fool yourself into thinking that you're leading.
That would be my 50-cents-worth of advice to President Barack Obama as he remakes his presidency into a Clintonesque corporate enterprise. Following last fall's congressional elections, he immediately began blowing kisses to CEOs and big business lobbyists, and he's now filled his White House dance card with them.
First came Bill Daley, the Wall Street banker and longtime corporate lobbyist. In early January, Obama brought him to the White House ball to be his chief-of-staff, gatekeeper, and policy coordinator.
Then Obama tapped Jeffery Immelt to lead his Council on Jobs and Competitiveness, which is supposed to "encourage the private sector to hire [Americans] and invest in American competitiveness." This is a bizarre coupling, for as General Electric's CEO, Immelt was a leader in shipping American factories and jobs to Asia and elsewhere. Today, fewer than half of GE's workers are in our country.
As an AFL-CIO official notes, "Highly globalized companies don't have the same interests as the United States. There is no company more emblematic of this than GE."

What I meant by the word "imaginary" is....and I am guessing you are well aware of this.

The money does not exist. It is just a figure on a computer screen. It is pretend.

Last I saw, less than 2% of the "money" in America is actually cash. Tangible dollar bills.

If every American put every dollar they had into paying off the national debt... you may not even notice the figure drop at all.

Gonna dig out a clip for you soon.
You have probably already seen it. But it is worth a refresher...

A trader from say Citibank can write the number 100 million dollars on a piece of paper. He can hand that piece of paper to a goldman sachs trader, who in return... would supply a piece of paper with 100 million dollars written on it to the Citibank trader.

No one has really made or lost any money...

But do you know what the commission on 100 million dollars is?

Don't think it happens?

Guess again.
