“Today is the day that we really need to start looking at the gun control & even ask the question " do we really need people having guns in this country". Look at other countries who have total gun control & guns basically are illegal to have or to own, do they have mass shootings like this where innocent kids are masscred!! These shootings are becoming far too common & too frequent, it's almost like a daily occuring people shooting each other all over this country. This has to stop. ENOIGH IS ENOUGH!!”

“We as a country are sick. We glorify violence and killing in the movies, on TV, in video games, in music, and we are blasted with it in the evening news and our kids and adults are constantly exposed to this then we wonder why people commit senseless crimes like this. Why don't we have more media control and outright censorship of violence and murder so no one has to be exposed to this onslaught of killing we fed from Hollywood and elsewhere that is has seeped into our culture. Don't think for a minute that the type of genocide that has happened to citizens in other countries after strict gun control could not happen here. They would love nothing more than to take all of our guns away. Then as in many other countries, we the people would have no way to fight back against a tyrannical, oppressive government and to think it could never happen hear is naive. Look at what has happened to our constitution rights since 9/11. I remember that day as I was in a church watching that tower fall in with shear terror and horror in my heart and the only thing I could say was "there goes whats left of our freedoms" and damned if I wasn't right. We are a sick violence loving society. If you don't think so then look at the top selling video games and top grossing movies. Taking away all out guns is not the answer.”

“That's a good idea.Get rid of all the guns.Since the guns will be off the streets,cops won't even need guns.Then we can get rid of all the bombs,expolsives and war machines around the world.There will be no more wars.we'll all hold hands and sing together and live in harmony.”

“Yes, they do. Crimes continue even in countries that have banned guns. What we need to look at is why are these people going nuts and killing people. The gun didn't do it, the kid did. Look at everything in our country that is considered to be illegal, does it stop it from being used, no, where there is a will there is a way, and a criminal will find a way to get them, banned or not. You, as a law abiding citizen will be the one paying the price with nothing to protect yourself from the ones that get the guns illegally. Think about it, instead of placing all the blame on a object, blame the real problem. Drugs are illegal, does that put a stop to people using them or selling them? No, they find a way to get them, even in prison. Ban guns and they will have to ban any object that can kill. Abortions kill hundreds of babies everyday, but I sure don't see people upset about that. To me it is no different, yet we allow abortions to happen. It is murder, no different than what happened today. Murder is wrong no matter who or how it is commited.”
rikilii on Dec 15, 2012 at 00:42:27
do they have mass shootings like this
Yes, they do, at pretty much the same rate that we have here. Any other questions?”

“I am a Liberal Democrat who believes that law abiding, sane individuals have the right to own guns. Provided that they keep these guns out of the hands of disturbed relatives.”

“Today in china a man went on a rampage at a school and stabbed 22 children. A gun is just a tool and if you remove it something else will take it's place. In countries that have banned guns have seen increases in violent crime. It's time we stop blaming the tool and start doing more to find these people and stopping them before these things happen. The kid that did this had a long and well documented history of mental illness, why can nothing be done until something like this happens?”
“What the hell is he on about? We have all these people on the scap heap who are very intelligent, hard working people & they won't be given a chance to do what they can in our economy because they are thought of expensive labor & instead their jobs are outsourced or cheap labor such as Indians are brought to save money. We are giving this country & everything we have ever worked for to other countries & pretty soon we won't be able to do anything & the third world will be our masters & we will have nothing but a basic economy with millions in poverty. We need to educate our own people & not bring talent from abroad. They will steal all out technonlogy & give it back to their own country because that's where their loyalty lies & will always be. Case in hand the GM engineers who stole the Hybrid system technology & gave it to China. They were convicted last week. And this was the tip of the iceberg. Our stupid politicians have destroyed this country by giving it all away to everybody else in the world. Our jobs, our economy, our culture, our language, even Christmas, and most States don't even let you call it Christmas tree. Are other countries in the world doing the same? Is India forfitting it's culture, language, traditions, etc?, Is Saudi Arabia? Is Mexico? Is Southern America?? They're all strenghtening everything they have & yet we're giving it”

“This guy & jerks like him are just hell bent to keep people from having a decent health care when their employees are busting thir backsides for their businesses & making them profitable. These people have no morals & they will do anything to keep paying for anything & just piling the money in their own pockets. Now they will cut the employees hours & push people on low wages even further into poverty. There should laws to prosecute jerks like this guy in order to stop what they're doing. THIS IS UNBELIEVABLE!! Their businesses make millions of dollars every year & theu shriek at the thoght of paying a little so people can have a decent healthcare. I bet you themselves have a to notch health insurance & their business pays for it.”
“What a piece of garbage this guy is. He calls himself a man!! Get him to court as soon as possible, try him & give him the death penalty & execute him as soon as possible without any delays & rid this society of him & garbage like him!! If it was up to me I'll hve him burnt by pouring Gasoline on him exactly JUST like what he did to that poor woman!! He left their kids without a mother & without him as a piece of a garbage father!!
REST IN PEACE MEGAN!! REST IN PEACE!!”

“Sad part they can fight for almost 20+ years. Make the Death Pentaly 3 years of appeal , then give them POS what they need.
I have to Laugh when a Attorney says to the court after 20 years that new people or paperwork was found, What a JOKE”
“Human species, what a disgusting creature some of the humans hav become!! And there is more & more of them brought into this world!! I wish there were more animals & less humans!!
The world would have been a wonderful place to live in!!!”
“I can understand why a city will pass a ruling like this in order to crack down on something that is totally bad for you & has no health benefits whatsoever but on the other hand an average person is educated enough to understand the health issues associated with these drinks & should be able to curb their habit of drinking this stuff. I guess their irrepossibility forced the City of New York to act. Just like smoking. The health care cost to treat diseses associted with smoking is astronomical & yet people seem to ignore the warning. I say let them suffer & pay the price!!”
“The stupid parents of these kids should seriously start looking at themselves & the way they're raising their kids. This is a wide spread problem in this socirty that soley falls on parents shoulders. If you can't teach your kids manners, dicipline, etc, etc, don't have any kids. Any idiot can have kids as has been demonstrated in this country all over, raising them right is the eal battle.”
“How can be a good thing for American people???!!! Probably hundred of thosands will be given Amnesty ubder the guise of work permit & will take jobs away from Americans, will depress the wages because they will work for peanuts & employers will employ them rather than an American so that tye don't have to pay them a living wage & this is good for American people!!!!! And I'm sure it will be good for economy too. Their spending power will make our economy recover pertty fast, that is if they don't send all the money back to Mexico!! Can someone please explain what is so good about this for American people????? It's only good for you Mr president because you want the Hispanic votes!!!!! At the cost of ruining American lives & American people's jobs!!!”

“The young people that this covers will have valid work permits so they won't have to work for an employer who does not pay them the same as anyone else; they will pay taxes and if they can afford it, they can go to college and be productive members of this society. These young people that this covers were brought here as children and have no ties to Mexico or what ever country thier parents came from so they are not sending money back there. If employers would follow the law and e-verify everyone before hiring them then those who couldnot get work would return to their own countries (self-deport per Mitt). When Reagan was President he granted amnesty to all illegal aliens no matter what their age or when they came to this country and nothing bad happened as a result.”

“Perhaps the American people should go to the Cons and tell them to stop voting against a tax incentive (3x now) to keep jobs in America. We could also tell the Chamber of Commerce to stop their obstruction against jobs coming back to the U.S., that is if people want jobs.”
forkuu on Jun 16, 2012 at 00:18:05
“who are you blaming? you shouldnt blame the president. there are many businesses who purposely hire illegals so they can pay them less . if the jobs werent available they wouldnt want to come here. they do not take jobs away from americans . try watching a video documentary a day with out mexicans. once these kids start working they will pay taxes in to our system adding to our revenues. the bottom line is that they are here already , why not
take advantage of the situation.”

“AMERICANS DO NOT WANT THE SLAVE WAGE NO BENEFIT JOBS ILLEGALS TAKE!
I am sick of your Con lies, you don't agree with the policy and it has NOTHING to do with jobs and you know it.
Our jobs are in China and India, thanks to Romney and his 1%er buddies.”
“How much more out of touch can one be??? If 4.3 million jobs are created then why the national rate of unemployment went up about a month ago? Last Friday government's own report showed that jobs are not being created!! It's a well known fact that even a 5 year old knows that the economy is slowing down & things are gettin worse in Europe & even slowing down in China.
Mr president saying stupid things like this is not going to win you any support & will anger people. Just tell it as is!!!!!! Give us the facts & not fiction that politicians are known for!!!!”
Albert James II on Jun 9, 2012 at 10:21:12
“H eis not out of touch at all. That is a distorted Republican talking point to a comparison statement Obama made. 4.2 million jobs added to the private sector, compared to 600 thousand public sector jobs lost. Would you not say the private sector was doing fine and the public was a disaster?”

“India is famous for it's slums, so I don't know what they are complaining about?? Yes, the West has saved you from poverty in the form of bringing a lot of jobs to your country & saving a lot of people from unemployment & putting money in their pocket & improving their living standards.
Thank you will be nice instead of attacking the West on everything you can.”
“All this money at a time that our own country & own people need it badly. Whoever thought that thay can make a civlized society out of Afghanistan might be on some drugs that we haven't heard of. Stop wasting all this taxpayers money on a backward, stupid, corrupt lousy place like Afghanistan. What is America's fascination with all these backward 3rd world counteies anyway????”
“Great heart warming story!! There are s many helpless animals (people for that matter too) out there that if everybody teamed together & helped rather tha being indifferent we can easily solve this problem of animal homelessness. Just think about it, is not a difficult problem to solve, only & only if people cared a little more & didn't ignore the plight of these innocent creatures. On my street there is couple of us (myself & my neighbor) that take care of all the stray & feral cats. We have feeding sations for them & feed them every night & have taken couple of them to the vet for various medical conditions. We did ask a few other neigbors to team up & help, the response was they are pest & should be destroyed, even better one particular neighbor said he'll be happy to shoot them!!! This is the kind of society that we have & the kind of people living in it that all they care about is themselves & nothing else. We're still taking care of them & won't let anyone harm them. That's a promise we've made!!!!”
“There are a lot of holes in your story. Why they were evicted? Were they behind with their mortgage? Is he unemployed? What was her illness & how bad was her condition that this poor man had to resort to shooting her? Wasn't there any help available to him caring for her? Was she receiving proper medical care?? Was there any sort of support system in place for this gentleman & his sick wife?? Etc, etc.”
“What if he would have said" Is our country ready for a first black lady? Too soon right?? I would like to see how people whould have reacted?? It seems to be ok to insult whites in a racial way & nobody seems to bother about it. Race should be left out & Deniro had no right to make a joke like that. Nobody shoukd insult anyone regradless of their color.”
Joseph Scott on Mar 20, 2012 at 21:23:39
“The joke is not an attack on white people at all.
RightobeLeft explains: The joke makes fun of the idea, expressed during the last presidential race, that america might not be "ready" for a black president, due to our racist history. So Di Niro turned that idea on its head, suggesting, after only 4 years of having a black family in the white house, out of the last 200+ , that we might not be "ready" for a white first lady. I fail to see what could possibly be offensive about that."
I have to agree with him on this one.
However, you do have the first lady, FLOTUS's chief saying it was "inappropriate" in your corner.”
“I had heard but hadn't seen this footage of what goes on in Circuses that use animals. This is disgusting & totally unjustified. Do we really need this kind of entertainment in this day & age for our 5, 6 or 7year old? The amount of cuelty is just incredible. These trainers & performers, what kind of stupid lousy human beings are they?? What kind of garbage parents brought them up without teaching them what is right & what is wrong. How would they like to be beaten & kept in confide spaces the whole of their lives. I would really love to have about an hour equipped with metal rods & bull hooks, with one these garbage human beings called trainers in the same place that train these poor animals so I can inflict the same pain & suffering on them & see if they like it. Just one hour & not the whole lifetime. It's about time we outlaw & ban zoos & alos circuses that use animals for our entertainment & meet & visit animals in their natural environment & if not just watch them on TV through so many excellent nature programs. Cirque the solail is an excellent idea of entertainment in a circus & not ringling bros with their cruelty to animals. PLEASE BOYCOT CIRCUSES THAT USE ANIMALS. WE DON'T NEED THIS KIND OF ENTERTAINMENT IN THE 21ST CENTURY. IT'S SO OLD SCHOOL. AND THE GOVERNMENT SHPULD STEP IN & BAN THESE KIND OF PRACTICES”
“Nothing is changed in this country when it comes to these people getting massive pays when the poor foot soldiers are slashed left, right & centre. Of course they are getting back to profitability when you have fired thousnads & thousnads of your workers & onr person is doing 5 people's work & you have to wait a long time in line to get service from these banks & other establishments, of course they will make money & big profits. And with big profits comes filling the pockets of CEO. I don't know what these people do to deserve this kind of pay. I'd like for some one to document a typical day of a CEO. Any idiot can lay off a maasive number of people & increase the fees that thay charge & make big profits. What's so hard about that that they deserve millions of dollars!! All that noise that the Obama adminstartion & others made about how finacial institions behave was nothing but a hype & a waste of time. Things not only will not change for the little guy in this country but they they are getting worse by the day until such a time that we are nothing but really bunch of slaves working to the bone for pittance!!! IF VIKRAM PANDIT HAS ANY DECENCY HE WILL TAKE THIS MONEY & GIVE AT LEAST SOME OF IT TO A CHARITY ORGANIZATION SUCH AS A HOMELESS SHELTER OR SOMETHING IN THAT LINE. THE SME GOES TO”
“The problem of saving stary animals is not a very complicated one. Is just that we human being the lousy creature that we are, we laway take the easy way out & just eliminate the problem by killing them!!
These strays all live on our streets eveywhere & if a few people team up together & feed them & have them spayed or nutered then we will solve this problem eaily & end the poor animal's suffering. I do this with a few of my neighbors & we all help to feed them & I had two of them nutered yesterday & my vet helps me too by doing the procedure at a much reduced cost. IT CAN BE DONE IF PEOPLE TEAM UP & HELP THEM BUT PEOPLE DON'T GIVE A DAMN, THEY RATHER SIT & WATCH TV THAN SPEND A LITTLE TIME TAKING CARE OF THESE POOR INNOCENT ANIMALS. GOVERN MENTS WON'T DO IT SO WE HAVE TO TAKE MATTERS IN OUR OWN HANDS. THINK ABOUT IT, TALK TO YOUR NEIGHBOURS & SEE IF YOU CAN DO THE SAME AS WAHT WE DO IN MY NEIGHBOURHOOD. IT CAN BE DONE. I FOR ONE CAN NOT IGNORE THE PLIGHT OF THESE INNOCENT ANIMALS.”
“I read this yesterday & I just can not get it out of my mind. This woman has a very serious issue with her anger & should be definately kept nder watch or some sort of court order because she is extremely dangerous & she could even be capable of doing worse than this, imagine if there was a gun nearby & there were people around, I wouldn't like to imagine what would have happened. She is one very sick & inhumane being that deserves the same fate as what she inflicted on that poor innocent defenceless dog. I hope the court will see this & take appropriate action against her. On a personal level I hope she never sees a happy day in her life & I'm a firm believer in karma & that will take care of her pretty soon.”
“Dudley Brown of Rocky Mountain gun owners in Denver needs to shut his big mouth & have some respect for these innocent children & their families at this terrible time. Yes, if we need to use the bodies of dead children to push through gun controls then so be it. It's about time the government & the law makers get serious about gun control & even banning guns alltogether.
These shootings are happening too frequently all over this country & something must be done to stop them, something immediately & not long drawn discussions. If we wait more people & more children will die in these kind of situations. SO ACT NOW!!!!”
“When are we going to stop this non sense of these people sneaking across the border or entering the US openly via visas to give birth for free in US hospitals & becoming Americam Citizens immediately & start using all the freebies.
Enough is enough. Why everything that is right is wrong & everything that is wrong is right in this country? Where along the line did we go wrong in this country that nothing, absolutely nothing matters anymore. NO PRINCIPLES ANY MORE OF ANY KIND!!!!
No wonder the whole world is using & abusing this country in any way, shape or form that they want, from trade to immigration. Sad state of affairs. When are we going to stand up to all this bullshit????”

“That's exactly what I was thinking. It's nice that this little girls situation made the author feel greatful for what she has but that little girl still doesn't have any shoes. We live in and create a society that needlessly neglects the weakest of our community and so many people just walk away.”

“don't be so harsh on her. Many years ago I came upon a 3 year old child wearing a pair of black patent shoes that were so small she could not walk or even stand. I could tell her feet were hurting. I gave her a really nice pair of shoes. The next time I saw her she had on the black patent shoes once again. When I asked an older sibling about it, the result was that the parent didn't want anyone to give them anything. In this day and age, caution must be taken to not intrude or overstep boundaries.”
“This is a blatant disregrad for the American immigration laws!! One can not blame them for the fact that our govern ment will not enforce immigration & work visas laws!!
And obviously bringing their own citizens based on these bogus applications to work in the US & keep money in their own citizen's pockets & within their own country!!
When the govern ment in this country is going to stand for legal American citizens?? If forign companies want to work in the US & have operations here then they have to employ Americans!!! Period!! Boycott INFOSYS & ban them from this country!!!”
