    wow people are dropping like flies on this thread lol

    I'm betting these killings are non-political.

    Pissed off disturbed person tried to kill as many people as possible before he was killed. A congresswoman would have just been icing on the cake to him.

This isn't a coherent individual striking out against the system. This is a demented nutjob who roamed the town, giving everyone he met the creeps.

    This was the guy you see walking along the road arguing out loud with no one. His rants and arguments were entirely disjointed, making no sense whatsoever. I'm still not sure what he meant by the government controlling our minds "and grammar". What the hell is all that about?

    Yet, there they were, all lathered up, rushing to point fingers at the tea party. And this, mere hours after the tragedy. I know that about 0.01 percent of the populations watches these shows anyway, but it's still maddening.

    And yet, the media still struggles to understand their irrelevance.

    Apparently, from thousands of miles away in your parts, it's already been confirmed.

    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.

    Strange how when Hinckley shot Reagan, it was never mentioned to be politically motivated, and rap and violent video games have no affect on young kids lashing out, but this guy listened to AM radio and it sent him over the edge.

We all were concerned that he would come back and kill someone. I saw him about a year ago in a local supermarket. He still looked insane. Fortunately, I don't think he recognized me.
