“You really have no clue of what you think you know.  The "target selection" process takes place way before the dirt bad shows up at school (or movie theater).  Do you think is a coincidence the POS at Colorado skipped several movie theaters that allowed concealed carried weapons and selected one that DID NOT allow them?  If you are such a "Gun Free Zone" fan, go ahead a tell all your neighbors by placing a sign in front of your house (or your mama's home) telling everyone YOUR HOUSE IS A GUN FREE ZONE.”

abaker997 on Aug 24, 2013 at 12:52:04

“Please. Quit spouting utter nonsense. No, the Aurora shooter never once said he picked his target based on conceal carry. Of course, mindless minions like you believe whatever your overlords tell you. You have absolutely no ability to think for yourself, use logic or reason, have no intelligence, and therefore completely lack credibility. You know that bit about people not being able to tell the difference between body armor and tactical vest? You can't tell the difference between a ridiculous lie (that makes you feel good about your absurd beliefs) and the truth. You complain about the media - yet you refuse to question the lie-factories that reinforce your idiotic preconceived notions.

Most of the country is a gun-free zone. Duh. Less than half of the people in the US own a gun. If having a gun gives you magical protection from being killed by a gun, why do police officers get attacked and killed by guns? There have been plenty of instances where someone with a gun was killed by someone else with a gun. There have been plenty of instances where someone with a gun was stopped by someone without a gun (several big news items recently, in fact). How can that be possible???? According to your lunacy, that should be impossible. Please explain how that works. I'd love to hear your moronic arguments.”

“Shooters might be fanatics, but they are not STUPID. If they know they will encounter ARMED people, they will go to another "softer target".”

abaker997 on Aug 23, 2013 at 10:56:07

“Utter nonsense. There is absolutely NO data to support that moronic argument. Idiots like you keep forgetting that the shooters themselves are ARMED people. So, if someone with a gun can stop someone else with a gun, then a bad guy with a gun can just as easily stop a good guy with a gun as the reverse. How is it that you are completely incapable of comprehending that simple and real fact? The shooter is prepared for the confrontation, the victims are not. Advantage: shooter. Surprise is a key part of victory, is it not? Advantage: shooter. The non-stupid shooter, then, would come with body armor. Advantage: shooter.

There has never, ever been a single case of mass shooting where the shooter took the "softness" of the target into account. They pick their targets based solely on the number of people congregated in a small area or how they feel people in a certain place have wronged them (more often the case). Since they're after death and destruction, having armed people with the "fog of war" problem causing more death and destruction would help their cause, not interrupt it. Even people well-trained in armed conflict make bad decisions in stressful situations - and that's when they're mentally prepared for the conflict. Poorly trained people (especially with a John Wayne complex) in a moment of surprise and turmoil will have an extremely difficult time being even remotely effective. Duh. Pick your peabrain out of the NRA's backside and think for”

“Did you like the way he boarded Marine One after talking with the soldier? He led with his left foot on the first step. He probably should have led with his right foot. Then, while alternating feet (step by step) did you notice how his forearms were not as close to parallel to the ground as they usually are? I'm sure it's a sign that he's thinking about Kenya. That likely explains why he took almost 0.3 seconds longer getting to the top step than he normally does.
It's a BIG DEAL, Ret. I hope you're paying attention to this stuff. The rest of us sure are!”

As President Obama prepares to unveil his FY2013 budget Monday, White House chief of staff Jack Lew this morning was asked by CNN to defend the Senate’s refusal to pass a budget in more than 1,000 days.

“You can’t pass a budget in the Senate of the United States without 60 votes and you can’t get 60 votes without bipartisan support,” Lew said. “So unless… unless Republicans are willing to work with Democrats in the Senate, [Majority Leader] Harry Reid is not going to be able to get a budget passed.”

That’s not accurate. Budgets only require 51 Senate votes for passage, as Lew — former director of the Office of Management and Budget — surely must know.”
