Mass shooting at Batman screening

As Peter Schweizer reported in his piece "Don't listen to the liberals-Right-win gers really are nicer people, latest research shows," studies have borne out what I've always known: Liberals are cheap, ungenerous, uncharitable, unloving, self-centered, envious, greedy and covetous. They're less likely than conservatives to devote time to ailing or needy loved ones, and they even hug their children less. And this reflects one reason why they support big government: they assuage their consciences by outsourcing their charity. I'll add to this that they're lustful, prideful, wrathful, often slothful and, if Michael Moore is any indication, gluttonous as well. In a word, they are the Seven Deadly Sins incarnate.  (Jul 24, 2012 | post #932)

Are you really that cynical? Of those who move to the sound of the guns, that is towards danger to offer help. Police, fireman, uniformed military, EMS personnel, doctors, clergy Very few of the above exhibit cowardice.  (Jul 24, 2012 | post #908)

MY MY you are so eloquent NOT There are those who will move toward the sound of the guns, maybe not now as much as in the past. Audie Murphy was one to move toward the guns. There was no need to plan, just charge, several coming from different directions would have succeeded. And then there was a thirteen year old girl who risked her life to try and save a stranger. She should receive the civilian equivalent of the Medal Of Honer. Seventy one shot with twelve dead, charging the shooter unarmed in those circumstances would not have been suicide.  (Jul 24, 2012 | post #900)

"milwaukee69 " "You started out great but then farted and shat your pants at the end. Arm chairs need to stop trying to second guess "what I would've done." Bullshat... Fact #1 - It was over in less than a minute - there wasn't time to organize a militia, plan a attack and play Audie Murphy. Fact #2 - The heroes of this tragic day need to be held in higher regard. There was no tanks, or armor or guns to protect them - they protected and sheilded the closest person to them that they "would always take a bullet for." (Fact #3 - Rushing this idiot would've been suicide. Simply rushing him with an "end around" would've resulted in more bodies. We thank our lucky stars that only 12 innocent folks lost their lives that day, including a 6-year old and the killer was caught."

Police: 12 dead in Colorado theater shooting

There where several other heroic acts in the theatre that night. I counted at least eight. The most heroic in my opinion was a thirteen year old who stayed, when she could have run, with bullets flying and the confusion and tried to get an adult body of the six year old girl to try to save her life. The three men, who were adults. gave their lives protecting their girl friends, someone they knew. This girl thirteen years old stayed to help a stranger risking her life in doing so. While trying to count the acts of heroism I was wondering if this is a part of what we as Americans are and if that degree of heroism is found in other nations. There was a disquieting thought with this. Twenty, thirty even fifty years ago there would have been an active offence not just passive defence. A half dozen or more men in a full out charge at the shooter would have taken him out with fewer deaths. What has changed from fifty years ago?  (Jul 24, 2012 | post #337)

Herman Cain denies GOP's horrible history with blacks

The terms Communist, Progressive and Liberal as used by the left, all mean the same thing. Let me explain why. Carl Marx in 1848 finished writing and then published the Communist Manifesto. Over the next 30 to 40 years the book gained some followers, mostly self anointed elites with PHDs. ( Now there is a subject worth some grant money. Why are highly educated people with PHDs so susceptible to such an absurd philosophy.) As people became aware of their agenda, the communists picked the term progressive in an attempt to hide that agenda. Years later, the same problem, to many people have spotted the agenda again so they picked the term liberal. ( Note that the dictionary definitions of progressive and liberal are very far removed from the political definitions.) One of the goals of their agenda is to infiltrate and take control of both major political parties. The Democrat party is at this time wholly controlled, 90% to 95%. The Republican party is 40% to 45% controlled. This leaves WE THE PEOPLE with very little true representation inside the belt way. If we want to survive as a nation as a republic we must flush the progressives from both parties, from all government offices, from the media, from positions of instruction, both public schools and universities. The progressive political philosophy must be rendered ineffectual, laughable, an object of ridicule. The progressive must be excoriated and driven out of any position of authority. Any adherent of such an absurd idea should never be paid more than minimum wage.  (Oct 15, 2011 | post #857)

bappie if that is your picture, you are a beautiful woman. From your writing however you seem to be some what lacking in logic and reasoning ability. You might benefit by working on that.  (Oct 15, 2011 | post #856)

Herman Cain is President Obama's worst nightmare

And as a direct descendant of Simon Legree you will do your best to maintain the servitude of all those whose ethnicity is derived from Africa. Why are you so afraid of freedom? From your screed you have bought into the hogwash put out by progressives, Racist bigots that they are, and you are attempting to own the spewage. None of what you wrote is accurate, do your own research.  (Oct 15, 2011 | post #20)

Herman Cain Is Brainwashed And Brain Dead

The character Simon Legree in Harriet Beecher Stowe's book "Uncle Toms Cabin" was the black hat, he was the back stabber who informed on others trying to escape to freedom, keeping them in servitude as slaves. Uncle Tom on the other hand was the hero, giving advice and helping others escape to freedom. Most here are Simon Legree's busy attacking the Uncle Toms, the heroes, Clarence Thomas and Herman Cain. P.S. Anne; Obama was never a law professor, let alone a Harvard law professor. He did guest speak at Chicago university law school a few times and was not well received as such.  (Oct 15, 2011 | post #163)
