Wasn't Kent State a tragic day. I was going to college working on my Master's and remember walking across the campus thinking here we go again. I got my undergraduate degree when JFK was shot.

Did you attend Kent State?? I went there with a number of friends, the day after the shootings.

I was in 9th grade, taking a trigonometry exam, when one of the students in the band played taps.

She's a rising star and we will see again in the Senate as that was her stated goal before the shooting.

I would love to see her be able to do that. But she has a very long road ahead of her.

Patrick Kennedy, the former congressman from Rhode Island, said the shooting in Tucson, Ariz. has pushed the threat level to members of Congress to an "all-time high" and members are in fear about running for office.
"It steals from democracy," he said, "when you have my colleagues decide not to run for re-election because they're worried about their personal safety.
"This is a major issue because it's got nothing to do just with the personal tragedy of Gabby, but the tragedy to our democracy when people are fearful of the political process.

If this happens, the teabaggers have succeeded in their goal of intimidating Democrats. That was their plan with toting the guns to rallies this summer so I guess, job well done.

I agree...they are trying to overthrow our governent. I already have plans to get the heck out .

While i understand your wanting to have a plan i'd like to encourage you to stand up to these ba$!@rd$ and let your voice be heard. We need to call them out and make sure our government stands strong against this. Just after the Constitutional Convention had finished its work, a woman approached Benjamin Franklin and asked, “Mr. Franklin, what kind of government have you given us?” “A Republic, madam,” Franklin quickly answered. “If you can keep it.” We MUST keep it. Love always wins out over hate. Not as quickly as we'd like but it will always prevail. We have to rise above their attacks and stand strong.

No, they don't. Conscience dreaming?

Lou ghner was heavily influenced by th e socialist utopia film Zeitgeist, but mostly he is a sick lo ser who couldn't get laid. The fbi says he fits the profile of the typical as sas sin, almost all of whom are motivated by personal, not political reasons. even Oswald, who loved Ca st ro and hated com muni sm, did it because he was a lo ser who wanted to accomplish one thing.

Most likely a chemical imbalance. And it hit him just as medically described, in his late teens to early 20s. His friends said he used to be normal before then.

He must be a member of the Tea Party in order to make statements like this, right?

Humphries is on video blaming Giffords. He said it was her own fault for gettingshot.

Maybe Fuller is suffering PTSD and needs counseling. The town hall was not a good idea.

This poor guy. One tragedy ought to be enough. Sort of reminds me of Violet Jessop, a crew member of TRMSTitanic (stewardess and nurse), who also survived two other White Star line disasters, the HMS Olympic's collision with the HMS warship HMS Hawke in 1911 and the sinking of the RMS Britannic in 1916.

I have to wonder why this kid was so concerned with documenting his actions prior to the events last Saturday. It's almost as he really wants us to believe he is crazy. I don't doubt that he is, but having a video and written word detail of his prior actions is very suspect.

All of these things point to premeditated murder, with this evidence he will not likely be able to establish a insanity defense.

I think he tried to establish the belief that he is just a psychotic, lone gunman. I think that all of the past political shootings are blamed on a mentally ill, loner figure. It really makes me wonder.

Taken off a ventilator but not taken off of Sarah Palin's hit list. Palin's gun sight image aiming at Giffords' district is still up on her official You Tube channel...

(This is a bump up of a post from below.)

In re the "mental illness" theory of the Tucson murders:

My thinking is going the other way: While people, especially men, in this age group are the persons who descend into mental illness, I am coming to the conclusion that this guy is a fame seeker who wanted to commit suicide in a blaze of "glory".

Without getting too deep, I see signs of Travis Bickle, Artie Bremer, the VT shooter, Mark David Chapman, John Hinkely, maybe even Ted Bund without the VW.

If he wore a clown suit, he could be emulating John Wayne Gacy.

You don't , I don't mind if some of my posts go missing, as much as I mind the way conversations are totally frozen on this site. This is not the social networking system we had a year ago!

Some of us are finding other solutions.  Occasionally I converse on other threads (about the topic we actually want to discuss) and have also been visiting another site (not sure if I can mention it or not).

At least it's loosened up right now on this thread. Last week, at night especially, it seemed like the mod on shift just turned off the computer and let the comments pile up!

Still, I wish we didn't have to find ways around something that was working fine, until they started "fixing" it ;)
