Talk about fanning the flames.. I just wonder why the TV media hasn't updated the story with the police report of the incident.

Huh.

Just shows how coincidences can happen.

I was tending towards the thought it might have come out of the "Karl Rove-like" playbook of political maneuvering...was first idea I had when hearing of it.

Referring, of course, to the stories of Mr. Rove and his frequent dirty tricks, in the past, 'framing' the left-wing, or Democratic Party in general, in various ways.

Random gun shots being fired, especially in Richmond makes sense, though.

Of course, it was a ploy, a chance to make a mountain out of a molehill, an opportunity to take a jab at the opposition.

24 hrs ago, it was an attack on a (R) Minority Whip's campaign offices.

today, an errant round fired elsewhere managed to pierce a pane of glass in an office, in a city where such things are not unheard of.

Cantor's office has no comment.

I have been on top of many flat roofs in Richmond.
It is very common to find .25 and .38 caliber lead up there that just landed. They are whole and perfectly formed bullets. There is constant gun fire in Richmond.
I was thinking along the lines of the Ghost of the late Iraqi leader.

Neither, apparently, do all the people who were using this 'incident' as some kind of balancing out of the HCR protesters' violent attacks against Democratic legislators who passed the law...

You don't believe what? That these incidents happened? Or that it's as big a deal as they're making it out to be?

The second part.

As I stated earlier in this thread, "cry wolf" syndrome has kicked in for me.

Anything said, by any elected at the moment is automatically sent to the BS bin.

It took years for me to get to this stage but our elected sure have earned it


Come on November!!!

this isnt some big 'maybe'. Rahm emmanuel already stated the intent. HCR is a matter of instigation. the rest of obamas presidency will be a series of instigation techniques designed to provoke the country into violence.

so naturally, when the solution to their problem doesnt present itself...they go and see to it that it happens anyway.

personally, i dont think it ends at obama...i think his only job is to screw up the country enough so that TPTB's next poster boy can pose as our savior and be the cleanup crew.

I hate to say it but you are correct. The American people have been asleep at the switch for to long.
The foxes are in the hen house and the chickens are getting frantic.
So if the farmer shows up with his shot gun to save the chickens it is not because he want's to really hurt the fox. He just wants those dumb ole chickens for himself.
The chickens have got to learn how to protect themselves. A mighty formidable task but it has been done before.

I agree. And both political parties in this country have been doing that forever. I don't know how November is going to make a difference in that. I don't think it will. Politicians are all known for taking extreme advantage of anything that makes them look like a victim of the other party.
November isn't going to change that.

Holy crap. I hope this isn't getting serious. We can only take a few more "isolated incidents" before it's time to start being very afraid.


Alas, you have discovered and confirmed the entire point of these "incidents" and why they continue to be top line news.

The message, succinctly, is: Be afraid, be very, very afraid....
