I'd say it's a pretty good bet considering how utterly deluded and messed up most of its members are. Seems like the kind of stunt "Tea-baggers" and people on here have been praying for...Be careful what you wish for morons.

Really though, my point being it could be anyone... but it still doesn't matter. I'm hearing now she's alive and responding to doctors. Good to hear.

I'm a big supporter for guns and concealed weapons... but it's tough to support after things like this.

I take extreme offense to that.
I am a believer in the Grassroots Tea Party
and I find that you lump all TP in the same
fold is rather moronic.


The Tea Party message and policies only fan the flames and inspire nuts like this shooter to "strike back" against authority/government figures as part of the "revolution" etc. People on here have been practically frothing at the mouth for the last 2 years demanding "action" like this sad incident be taken against those evil politicians.

I said this kind of rhetoric was dangerous months ago and nobody listened. Unfortunately I suspect we're seeing the results now.

It's hard for me to take that seriously when you have described morality as relativistic.

How will YOU know what's right when the time comes?

Political assassinations are acts of desperation from people who either have something to gain, or have nothing to lose. It is sad, and it is wrong.

Also, if only all American's had the right to own guns, then maybe some hero could have pulled his gun out and shot the shooter before he could have done as much damage...oh...er....

Which ever way you look at it..

Who would take her spot as representative in the event of her death?

Maybe they could of been apart of this as they really wanted the job position...

There's no organized revolt evidence here.

Just a wacko who charged at the crowd firing then ran away.

There are witnesses saying he was tackled and taken into custody.

A nut is a nut is a nut.

Jared Laughner is apparently the shooter. AP news in the States has reported that to SKY News here in the UK...

Edit to add more soon.

I'm reading reports that others were armed and returned fire. It may be that the body count is so high due to people being trapped in the cross-fire...

While yes, I get the Dexter reference in your name, I am not sure just how debatable it is to say that murder is a crime, and deplorable outside of a Showtime series....


That's about the most confusing reply I've gotten in a while. Context please, maybe a quote?

Let me speculate..

Since the remarks by Dennis Kucinich that "Pentagon Is Missing Trillions Of Dollars They Can Not Account For",
the government will cook up a story that a gunman with anti-war movement shot the congresswoman (who is in the armed service committe) and killed many others.

Perhaps you also missed my post where I said


Looking back over this thread would indicate that very few have missed the fact that you are "also" talking from both sides of the face. While attempting to reliquish all personal claim of previous revolutionary "rah rah"ing, the only thing leaking through is that while not condoning, there is glee. Time for reality. 13 people have been shot. A CHILD WAS SHOT. You revolution AINT COMING behind them. It may be hard to undestand since everything in the world of Lonercraft has changed but reality is A KID WAS SHOT AND THERE IS NO REVOLUTION.

That was my first guess right there.


I would have to say Drug Cartel as well. I have heard from friends that live in AZ that the Drug Lords are out of control.

Here is a link to the story in Acapulco.

What I think is strange is that her husband is an astronaut and he works according to wikipedia

'Pending mission
[edit] STS-134

Mark Kelly will command space shuttle Endeavour on the final space shuttle mission: STS-134. Kelly and his crew will deliver the Alpha Magnetic Spectrometer (AMS) to the ISS. AMS is a 15,000 lb cosmic particle detector that will be installed on the outside of ISS. Its experiments will help researchers study the formation of the universe and search for evidence of dark matter and antimatter.'

If you click on Alpha Magnetic Spectrometer you see it takes you to a page talking about CERN: Could any of this have to do with the pole shift or bird phenomenon? Stargates? I know its out there, but its there first thing I thought.

I also wanted to say, its a tragedy no matter what the cause of these events. And the world is a crazy place. I don't know what to think. Blessings to all involved.

AP News in the US reported it on the newswire (news agency intranet-type communications medium)

Apparently 6 are dead. Jared Laughner (the shooter/ killer/ gunman) is a 21 yr old male who may have been shot in the incident. A semi-automatic weapon was apparently used.

Hospital dealing with 9 wounded, some police sources said 18 were injured/ killed.

The hospital spokesman just said that he will only give out 'releasable' information. He failed to clarify anything really, and took only about four questions before saying the next press release will be at 6pm local time.


The gathered press used their last question to complain that he was giving no useful information!

Giffords also voted to repeal subsidies to big oil companies and invest the savings in renewable energy.


You might be on to something here. But who knows for sure....

Unfortunately, I would rather be caught in a cross-fire with a gun, then sitting like a duck in a barrel and have no protection.

That is my personal opinion.

My condolences and sympathies to the families of the victims.
