We have to budget our money, why don't the stewards of our tax money have to follow the same ideal?

This aughta be good for a few laughs.
I normally wouldn't waste my time with an obvious troll like you, but the idea that most mass shooter have been liberals is making it's way through the right wing blogosphere based on the unsupported claims of one right wing conspiracy nut known as Roger Hedgecock , but the claim has been proven false.

Here's an article from THE EXAMINER that goes through the list of mass shooters and proves that these claims are false.

----------

The idea that recent mass shooters are mostly registered Democrats is a myth

...Hedgecock asserts, without providing any evidence or sources, that the Ft. Hood shooter, the Virginia Tech shooter, the Aurora Theater shooter and Adam Lanza of Sandy Hook infamy were all “registered Democrats”...

...Interestingly, Hedgecock and those on the far right have conveniently overlooked a number of cases where ideology is clearly right-wing. The acts below are instances of right-wing violence that are unequivocally committed by people who are openly hostile to liberalism. While this does not mean these killers are Republicans, it is quite clear that they are RIGHT-WINGERS...."

The law seems to allow discretion of the Courts on the deportation of any immigrant that holds a legal status. You see it all the time where both liberal & conservative judges play their judicial activism all the time on deportation rulings.

Regarding an illegal alien, as of now and due to "limited resources" immigration detainers are only being placed on illegal alien criminals who commit serious crimes.

If you are a citizen on probation and get arrested your probation is usually revoked.. The same should be for any illegal alien that gets probationary status..

Depending on the crime committed I would agree with you that probationary status should be challenged but only in a court of law where the subject has been found guilty of the crime.

Thanks for proving that you have the reading comprehension of a 12 year old. First you make the assertion that those on the right are claiming that most mass shooters are liberals, and then to defend your position that they are not you post an article which does nothing but state that these individuals were not registered democrats.

So the fact that they are not registered democrats has nothing to do with their suspected liberal ideology. Unless you believe that the only pedophiles in society are those that are registered.

At least you did not fail in proving that liberals are ignorant.

We've enter an era where it's not so much Bush anymore but rather outright obstructionism & sabotage by the Republican Party.

First, the original claim made by a far right wing conspiracy theorist was that the majority of recent mass shooters have been registered democrats.

They were not.

Second, that claim has morphed from a claim that the shooters were democrats into the claim we saw in the post I replied to that these shooters were "liberals" as it has been spread throughout the far right blogosphere.

They were not.

Third, there is a difference between the far right and the "right".

Fourth, if you had actually read the article, you would have seen that the ideology of mass shooters is predominantly far right and the article did make a distinction between party affiliation and ideology.

Fifth, you're an idiot.

Looks like House Republicans are not serious about cutting the debt since they're more than happy to be spend spend spend and raise raise raise that debt ceiling.

The vote in the Republican-controlled House was 285-144.

The good ole debt limit... the burden of the majority party in the House.

What a fool, THIS is just another reason why the 2nd amendment is so important.
Guess you are defecting to the conservative side LOL.... your messiah is going to be pissed.
Look here little buddy... when it comes to 2nd amendment issues I move to the right. No doubt about that and I'm agreeing very little with liberals & democrats on the current gun control issue.

Limiting certain types of rifles & bullet capacity from citizens in good standing should not be the dialogue but rather it should be about how do we prevent the mentally ill from getting their hands on "any" type of weapon.

The current gun control debate seems hellbent on abridging the rights of citizens in good standing which is a violation of the 2nd amendment to the US Constitution.

Why are white men particularly prone to carrying out the all-too-familiar mass killings??? You cannot pin this on a political affiliation but rather you can pin this on the fact that white men in general have privilege induced lack of coping skills and tend end it all in an al-Qaeda blaze of glory when things don't go your way.

Lets look at you for an example... you have this unhealthy obsession with Liberals for being smarter and wittier than you. You're obviously incapable of coping with the reality that your tea bagger mentality is being rejected by a majority of Americans so instead of coping with the problem like a normal person would, you irrationally blame everyone else but yourself which drives you into a constant state of rage which is the precursor to any mass murderer.

You're probably cutting your arms right now because you know what I'm saying is 100% true about you.

The radical right along with their nazi storm trooper tea bagger party are very prolific in the dissemination of fear mongering & lies. Not only that but they're the first to advocate violence and the use violence as an instrument of fear but will loudly disclaim responsibility when that fear becomes violence.

Thus the reason why they make unwarranting claims that mass murderers are registered democrats or liberals. Radial right wingers know these mass murderers are by a majority radical right wing in their ideology.

Gov. Perry: Boy Scouts Should Keep No-Gay Policy
Perry is an Eagle Scout and in 2008 he authored the book "On My Honor: Why the American Values of the Boy Scouts Are Worth Fighting For." It detailed the governor's deep love for the organization and explained why it should continue to embrace traditional, conservative values — including excluding openly gay members and scout leaders.

The Boy Scouts have proven to be nothing mote than a neo-con bigoted organization.
