    Do the math as they allegedly say in your country, despite the fact theat "maths" is plural.
    I took calculus as a 15 year old, but that was quite some time ago.

    As to mass shootings at military facilities -- you think these happen all the time, do you? My math certainly does not arrive at 87 per day, even if I do happen to be a tad rusty.

He apparently was using the ID of someone who departed under bad circumstances recently but that person has been cleared. IDK. I really don't care why he did what he did though. as long as he is dead, there is not much that can be done.

    But the odds of being a black person shooting on American soil is pretty high still--disproportionally high.

    Why it's clear he's making the same point the President made in the TM event.

    Are you implying the President was stupid to have made such a remark?

    ChezC3 makes it clear in his post just how dumb a remark the President made when he made it. Is there a reason you don't see that?

    We're all better than this, when we blame over these massacres.
    Using my words, may my Creator help this Country, because We do help the rest of the World.

    He was also dismissed from the Navy under bad circumstances, to go with the badge you speak of.

    It did until Obama abandoned Iraq. Look what Iran is involved in now.

    Re: Active gunmen in US navy Yard

    It should be interesting to find out what kind of information surfaces over the next few days. I am willing to bet, as many other shootings like this, there were probably suttle clews that this man was about to commit act. This was obviously not a targeted shooting, so I don't believe it was workplace violence. He obviously meant to bring terror to those on a military installation which leads me to believe this was probably a homegrown terrorist act. The PC government will probably try as hard as possible not to call this a homegrown terrorist act. They don't want to upset the extremists out there!

    - Idealistically, everything should work as you planed it to. Realistically, it depends on how idealistic you are as to the measure of success.
    - Better to be a pessimist before, and an optimist afterwords.

    We never had a terrorist attack since we invaded Iraq under President Bush...We have had numerous ones under Obama.
