    While I agree that rhetoric has hardly gotten worse, the problem todya is that it reaches more people then it used to, and there's a higher chance someone who listens to it is enraged, or is already a powder keg waiting to blow.

    Yes my friend.. it's an awesome state and it's people are great and good people, it only takes a bad seed to make decent human beings look demonic and also bring a bad name if politically inclined.

    There's more people now, than there was 150-200 years ago, too. A bigger chance of a nujob coming out of the woodwork. There thousands of variables that can be factored into this equation. To say the that Sarah Palin's use of a cross-hair on a website to, "target", political opposition, or Obama calling Republicans, "the enemy", does more to illustrate a person's stupidity than anything else.

    Unless there is evidence linking Sarah Palins website to this nut job, her website has nothing to do with it.

    I could put a crosshair and a website on anybody in the country and if that person is killed and the killer didn't even know I made the site, the site isn't to blame.

    Anybody who would blame the state for what happened wouldn't be someone worth listening to.

    Great story.

    As morbid as it sounds, gotta confess that I am curious to learn what the trajectory of the bullet was that struck Giffords in the head. As tragic as the shooting was, it appears she may have been blessed by the path the bullet entered and left her body.

    With the Okalhoma City Bombing years ago speculation was way off the target by first accusing it to be from Muslims but in light of the climate then it was felt to make sense perhaps.

    Am certain the police investigation is doing there speculation too and acting on it to see if it is founded or not. People here desire to know the truth too so in attempt to make sense of this.

    Already many have labeled him insane but I am not so certain and believe this was a well planned out killing by someone of normal intelligence but then I am just speculating.
    My first thought was that this was a hit by the Mexican Cartels do to her stance on border security. If there were any accomplishes I wonder what their motives really are.
