Do your research.
I posted a link to an article a couple of days ago that went through these claims and disproved them and explained where this all started.
The idea that recent mass shooters are mostly registered Democrats is a myth
http://www.examiner.com/article/the-idea-that...
I know it's become a favorite theory of the far right, but it simply isn't true.
Fact is most mass shooters have had one thing in common. They share a far right ideology.

<quoted text>The most successful economies in the world have a significant manufacturing component. We let ours go to h*ll in a hand basket but are currently working toward reversing the situation - IF we don't kill the consumer component of the benefit.
While our market has certainly been impacted (the EU being a material market for our product) by a lack of demand, we still have our own consumers for whom we can produce for sale, and that's what we should be targeting. I don't mean protectionism, I mean stimulating our own economy. But, if you take disposable income away from consumers, manufacturers have no impetus to increase production, hire folks and invest here at home because they don't have a strong market - no incentive. Since globalization got underway, if the buyers are overseas, they'll produce overseas to keep costs lower, profit higher. Any economic policy that harms the consuming public won't help grow the economy, i.e., increasing taxes on the middle-class, cutting dollars available to spend in the low income sectors. Those low income earners spend essentially everything they take in. The highest income earners are not a significant component of consumers. They're the savers and investors, but they won't invest in businesses if the market for the goods they produce isn't there. Instead, they'll invest their capital elsewhere in the world or park it overseas in tax havens which does nothing to help this economy.
Now, if you'd like to "educate" me, go right ahead and correct me with facts. I'm liberal leaning enough that I'm open to learning something new. We used to have a poster who was an excellent resource and non-judgmental.
Still, I have no idea how you connect the dots you do to assign blame to "diverse populations". Diversity is a strength, not a liability, and I have zero interest in playing the "blame" game pointing fingers at "diverse populations". I'd attribute the problem to lousy governing and short-sightedness, a problem not limited to Europe. China has grown a booming middle class while concurrently decimating the environment and quality of life in their industrial regions. It appears that they'll have more "stuff" but die much sooner as a result of toxic air and water pollution.
Good points!

Provide a link to a source and I'll be glad to read it. Otherwise you haven't provided any information at all.

Just unsubstantiated rhetoric that has been proven false.

OMG! Has he got hold of a missile-firing drone too? Well, he should just call Obama and get a Presidential OK. Once you get one of those, you can kill whoever you want, as long as they're far away in some foreign land. They can even be Americans!
But it gets better. Some of them can even be totally innocent! Yes, that's right: not Al Qaeda or anthing, just in the wrong place at the wrong time. Kids, grandmas, puppies...whatever. It's like you're friggin' 007, but drunk & near-sighted, and with a "License to Kill" that's unlimited.(You don't get to bang the local hotties though.)
It might surprise you to find out that I don't like the way they're using these drones at all.

I don't like the idea that they think the "war on terror" justifies killing American citizens overseas without due process either.

You're so into dividing people into left and right that you fail to understand the wide range of opinions a person can have on a wide variety of issues.

That and the fact that the conversation that was going when you started this was about the shootings in California and had nothing to do with drones.

I think your just looking for a fight and I'm not interested.

It seems Obama has a drone over LA and says he'll kill any damn American he pleases, as long as he suspects them of being in the Tea Party or Al Qaeda. But he does promise not to water board them, cause he's got like "moral superiority" & sh*t, unlike Bush.
Bush, he went on to explain, made passing a budget or fixing our economy permanently impossible. But that's ok, cause we have a magic debit card that you can spend with pretty much f*cking forever and (this is the good part!) you NEVER have to pay it off. But that's beside the point.
First off, President Obama hasn't killed anyone with his drones that you or I wouldn't have killed if we were the "decider".

Second, the Tea Party started off as a grass roots organization with a great charter as people from both sides of the isle found common ground on the "Taxed Enough Already" platform. It was infiltrated by the ultra right faction of the republican party running anyone with a brain away. Today, the members of the tea party are better known as Talibaggers and if they were not already on SSDI, they would qualify for it simply by being associated with the tea party brand.

That magic credit card you are talking about was maxed out way before Obama ever became president so quit blaming Obama. It was Bush/Cheney who gave the surpluses to the rich and sent the poor off to war.

Let me quote yourself: "the conversation that was going when you started this was about the shootings in California and had nothing to do with drones".
Now the Topix topic, printed in bold at the top of the page: "THE PRESIDENT HAS FAILED US"
At least my ridiculous & irreverant post had something (somewhat) weakly related to the Topix topic, wouldn't you agree? There's certainly nothing in the LA shooting that relates to Obama, is there?
They'll catch the LA shooter. It's an godawful, horrible mess, to be sure. But in the long run what we do with our drones over other people's countries is far more important.
"At least my ridiculous & irreverant post had something (somewhat) weakly related to the Topix topic, wouldn't you agree?"

As long as we agree that your post was ridiculous, irrelevant and only vaguely related to the topic I think we've made considerable progress.

The President has NOT failed us. This is a propaganda thread meant to spread lies, hate and extreme right-wing prejudicial attacks toward President Obama.

It's unpatriotic, untrue and a vicious display of domestic terrorism.

So there.

Once these threads get a little age to them "on topic" gets a little hard to define sometimes.
Plus it gets a bit boring as well. So a little distraction for a bit then back to the subject. That's what keeps things going.
