    Well at least you recognize that it is a "gain" because the OP was/is absolutely correct in pointing it out!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!! And it pisses you off that you can't deny it.

    We conservatives call that, "liberal heads exploding" for liberals such as yourself, Redress.. Why it explodes is that you know your double standard, or hyporcrisy is on full display, but you JUST CAN'T HELP YOURSELF anyway..

    We, as in me and people like me actually get a tingle in our bellies when it happens. The fact that it happens daily on this site is why we keep coming back, which in itself might be a mental disorder..

    Your only commentary in your OP was a potshot at Congress. Therefore, that is what YOU made the thread about. Whether you meant to or not, that is basically exploiting a tragedy.

    You have said virtually nothing about the event itself. I hardly think it's out of line for people to debate you on the grounds that YOU set up in your OP.

    Furthermore, this happened TODAY. What do you mean where are the hearings? The dust hasn't even cleared yet. We don't even know what caused the shooting, who the person was, or anything.

    And finally, you saying there were hearings on Trayvon Martin is false and misleading, as someone else has already pointed out. It was a hearing on racial profiling.

    Whether you intended to or not, you are indeed exploiting a tragedy based on disingenuous or mistaken premises and ridiculously unrealistic expectations.

    That is what YOU made the thread about. You shouldn't complain when someone addresses you based on the premise YOU set up.
    But I do think Congress should get involved. If they can get involved in steroids in baseball, if they can hold hearings about school bullying, they can hold hearings on what might be done to prevent kids getting killed in the classroom.

    I guess everyone just thinks I should have posted, "What a shame."

    Sounds like a good description of the president, and God knows he's the only one who actually benefits from scoring cheap ****ing political points. Certainly not a bunch of peeps on a political discussion forum. Save your rage for where it counts.

    It is a shame it is to know about that a school was attacked like this.

    Once people assume that you are attacking their party or their president they are going directly into fight mode. It doesnt matter what you would have said. You have "conservative" in your lean so any reference to obama, politics, congress ect is automatically an attack and they must fight. (libs dont get your panties in too much of a bunch conservatives do it to you too). MOST people can't accept that their party can be wrong in any way or the other side might be right once in a while.

    (And thank you. Right back atcha.)
    School shootings are surprisingly rare. However, they make headlines beause of the nature of the victims(young people) and the fact they are multiple deaths. It's still really safe in school however.
