Re: Gun Toting Americans Shooting Themselves Up AgainJan 9th, 2011
Gabrielle Giffords was Jewish ......and one of Jared Lee Lougher's favorite books was Mein Kampf....
So he must be a Jew hater
Most wingnuts will list one of the two as favorites. To list both as favorites just doubles the insanity.
I know balance is a tough concept for some people.
It's one of the reasons things are becoming so polarized. Someday you may look in the mirror and see that your attitude is a big part of the problem.
Things are not usually as black and white as you seem to portray them sometimes.
I'm just glad I was able to get you to accept that your words were perhaps flawed and you were able to reconsider. It is a move in the right direction. Congrats.
CDNBear & Cannuck....& others...Cool it, eh? You'll derail the Thread like
this, and I don't have time at this point to correct it, so I'll have to close it
'till someone gets around to cleaning it up.
Please continue is a somewhat civil manner for everyone else's benefit to
avoid this happening.
Another thread goes off into the realm of completely pointless ignorance.
First, let me say quite clearly that I am disgusted that jbeee would enthusiastically "yawn" (a bit of an oxymoron, I suppose) at not only the shooting of The Honorable Representative Gabrielle Giffords (8th District of Arizona) but, more tragically, the needless deaths of six innocent people. Not only a nine-year-old girl, but also the deaths of three seniors, a fifth person engaged to be married, and The Honorable Chief Judge John McCarthy Roll, now the former Chief Judge of the District Court of Arizona. This much needless death and sorrow is hardly boring, and you, jbeee, should be entirely ashamed of your callous attitude.
As for everyone else suggesting that Palin, and a number of political pundits somehow carry any responsibility for this event--let's be quite clear here. The only person responsible for what happened in Tucsan is the shooter himself. Certainly his ideas may have been shaped in part by political discussions that he had been exposed to, but most people are able to critically analyse what they hear and form reasoned and informed opinions; obviously there were greater mental defficiencies at work here, no one but the shooter can be held responsible for those.
Palin should be brought to justice.Quote has been trimmed, See full post:

I just finished watching an interview with the sheriff in the case and while I realise that sheriffs in the US are elected under a political banner, but I found that sheriff to be totally unprofessional in playing the political card in the middle of a criminal investigation.
Thankfully he is not in charge because he might decide to arrest every right wing radio host in the US.
It's pretty hard to expect people in a forum to not bring politics into it, when the sheriff can't refrain.
