  2. Second Amendment Remedy?

    Sounds more like Domestic Terrorism to me.

    There are conflicting reports that she is still alive.

    There are also questions about the motive: political or not.

    This has gone way too far for way too long. Sarah Palin and anyone else who "cutely hinted" at assassination should be held accountable by law enforcement for their remarks.

    Edit: I've clarified this remark in later posts. I didn't mean Palin should be charged with murder. I do think politicians have some responsibility not to provoke or rile up the masses in the direction of violence. Palin and others have been (I'll use the forbidden word) disingenuous about this.

    We have a "manifesto":

    Looks like his myspace page got dissapeared. Any mirrors?

    I've edited my post because I realized it might have sounded like a call for vigilante action--the last thing I'd suggest. I'd like people who goad others toward violent acts to be prosecuted and held legally responsible for the consequences of "crying fire in a theater."

    looks like we need a title change
    Thankfully she is still alive.
    Although the news said a nine year old was killed. Very Sad

    Excuse my LATIN AMERICAN knowledge, but what is exactly the second amendment? :S
  19. Miranda Member

    The right to bear arms.

    "A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed."
  21. The right to arm bears.

    Lest we forget:

    *Thanks xemu she was defeated*

    Yeah, nice stretch there: Sarah Palin did it with a picture. I think he was just an 'enlightened" nihilist hipster who has discovered schizo, age appropriately.



    Because flag burning is really TEA Party, right LMAO!

    This shooting as NOTHING to do with the Right, Tea Party, Sarah Palin, or anything else political. This is the work of a batshit crazy fucktard. His screed is incomprehensible, as are his YouTube vids.

    Don't even call this a 'tragedy'. It is not. Titanic was a tragedy, this is mass murder.

    My wife works in psych. Her diagnosis, Psychosis.

    Mass murder. As in a number of dead people.

    Just to be certain I understand your point here, what is the body count required for it to be labled a tragedy?
  29. LRonAnon Member

    Agreed, he is right there age wise.

    What is missing in all the moonbattery of hatred in this thread is that: a 9 year old girl and 4 others were killed.

    That is a tragedy and for that I am saddened (on both counts).

    My point is that accidents are tragedy, violent crimes are not.

    Oh, glad you cleared that up for me. Not sure where you live but in my world when a nine year old child is shot it is a tragedy.

    Incendiary pro-assassination rhetoric certainly DOES play a part in tipping unstable people over the edge. Get past politics here--Palin's target map, Glen Beck's constant veiled references, Sharron Angle's crazy threats--It Has An Effect. If they are going to talk that way, they should step up and take responsibility for the consequences.

    So, nothing about his focus on English literacy in his Congressional district (which borders on Mexico and where immigration issues are extremely hot politically) or on creating a new currency (an interest shared by this tea partier) has anything to do with politics? He was not responding to anything in his environment at all?

    I would be snarky, but I'll just say that you're a fucking idiot (and so is your wife for offering an amateur diagnosis based on "working in psych.")
  37. ziptang Member

    Where I live it's called murder, and the person who did it is a murderer, in this case several times over. I want justice and pretty damn quick. I'm not really into handwringing.
  38. ziptang Member

    Thanks for your input.
  39. Ersatz Global Moderator

    The point. You missed it.

    I am frequently annoyed by sweeping generalizations that are stated as fact when they are merely opinion. But thanks for your useless 2 cents. They are duly noted.
