    I think it would be nice if we could avoid getting into the politics of this for at least a little while.

    CNN is saying she may be in surgery now, lets hope the reports saying she is dead are false.

    KOLD News 13 (KOLD_news13) on Twitter

    Hoping that means more than just that it's not yet been declared.
    Yeah it's madness atm.
    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.

    Fox reported that she has passed away.

There was a recent thread here about a MMA fighter who wanted to beat down Obama. Many scoffed that he really didn't mean it and I doubt he actually wanted to attack the president. But is sets up a precedent that it is more and more okay to approve of such hatred.
    Anyone who supports this type of behavior is a terrorist and enemy to the US Constitution and USA. If any side advocates violence, they need to be subdued by the GOV'T by all means necessary.

    People sleep peaceably in their beds at night only because rough men stand ready to do violence on their behalf.

    Wow, now they are saying that "AZ is a gun happy state, it's almost a fetish, so that is surely to blame"
    I knew it wouldn't be too long before someone started using this for political gain. It's a damn shame this kind of **** happens every time there is some sort of national tragedy.

    I don't think anyone here is happy about this at all. This is a tragedy and the truth will come out eventually. What isn't healthy at this point is to start playing the blame game and start pointing fingers. We've seen this time and time again where certain folks jump to a conclusion that isn't there. Rather than project our anger and frustration at "the other side", we should be thinking of the families of those affected by this tragedy. We will get to the truth, but it will take some time.
    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.
