    Does that clear it up?

    think of it like... a NASCAR wreck, and the car hits the stand. You hear there is a death, I would hope that it was driver because HE knew the risk... see what I am saying?
    Wait a minute.....I had to read this a few times and need a clarification..

    By government officials, do you mean ELECTED officials or everyone on a government pay check?

    This is just terrible, I heard it on CNN at work today during my sift at the airport. From, reading his you tube comment, I would say he is a ****ed up individual who is more of a conspiracy nut job than someone that has any mere political motivations. I think he would have shot anyone no matter who they. As for the child that was murder in cold blood I hope he rest in peace, and the ****er who killed him rots in hell if their truly is a hell.

    I think (and of course, we are armchair quarterbacking this) it would have been wise to have had police and/or armed security present since a Congresswoman was out in public. I've never seen an elected US official speak publicly without a police presence myself.
    Welfare (Food Stamps, WIC, etc...) are not entitlements. They are taxpayer funded handouts and shouldn't be called entitlements at all. Social Security and Veteran's benefits are 'Entitlements' because the people receiving them are entitled to them. They were earned and paid for by the recipients.

    Doesn't seem we need to worry if we have right guy, here. It's not like he'll be exonerated after he's executed. No reason to let him linger on our taxes.

    Thats right. Give him his speedy trial with all the protections. Give his all his Constitutional rights. Then, if and when he is convicted and that is upheld, flush the damn toilet.

    Pete, you are looking for some reason to attack me somehow.

    Quit overthinking it and looking for some angle, this isn't the time, or the place for it.
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    see what I am saying?
    No. What you are saying is totally whack. Getting shot for serving on the bench as a judge or as an elected congressman is NOT PAR FOR THE COURSE, nor should it ever be considered an acceptable risk.

    How exactly does a representative democracy function, Vicchio, if the elected representatives have to worry about getting shot by some nutjob if they don't make 100% of the people happy 100% of the time? The short answer is: It doesn't. This kind of act attacks the very fabric of a democracy and harms all of us.

    If you were talking about cops, that's one thing. Cops understand that their job entails necessary risks. But you're talking about a judge and a congresswoman. There is no way in hell that part of the job is a risk of being shot.
