    Apparently some of the talk show pundits seem to think getting fired and later returning to your former place of employment to kill your former co-workers is terrorism. Most people would call that going postal or work place violence, not terrorist. Getting pissed off because you lost your job as far as I know are not one of the reasons a terrorist murders someone.

    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Terrorism is usually defined as killing large amounts of people in an attempt scare the **** out of them as a means to push a certain political agenda. Going full nutjob on your former coworkers is just workplace violence.

    Really? So, when jihadists behead a single person, it's not terrorism?

    Getting upset and going nuts because you lost your job is not something terrorists murder people for.

    That's not what I asked.

    I heard the guy was suspended, not fired. Is that inaccurate? I also heard he is a convert to Islam. Is that inaccurate? Is beheading a victim in any way unusual? Do you not think it appropriate to investigate this incident thoroughly? Has the investigation been completed? Why are libs so reluctant to consider the possibility that this assailant might be a jihadi?

    Murder is murder. It doesn't really matter what form it is in, the outcome is the same.

    Yes, it matters. Some of us actually think facts are important. I know, weird huh?
