Shootings Reported At 2 Jewish Centers In Overland Park, Kan. (VIDEO) [UPDATED]

Shootings Reported At 2 Jewish Centers In Overland Park, Kan. (VIDEO) [UPDATED]

“The ones he killed were: A grandfather and his 14 year old grandson and an elderly woman (not related) from a retirement community. They were all Jewish. It wasn't a simple domestic violence situation or a neighborhood quarrel. This KKK nutball didn't even live in the area. He went to TWO separate JEWISH buildings. He spewed hate for the Jewish community on a website and was a former grand dragon with a KKK "patriot" group. Happenstance? Hardly. He intentionally went after Jewish people with the intent to kill. He has had prior arrests. This guy should have had his guns...and I'll say it without regret or shame....HIS GUNS CONFISCATED and he should still be in prison.”
Child Drowns In Cruise Ship Pool

Child Drowns In Cruise Ship Pool

“From the story, it appears that the Grandmother took the kids with her on a cruise. Cruise ships don't have lifeguards and I doubt anyone was swimming in the cold temperatures. The Grandmother most likely allowed these small kids to wander around the ship alone, they fell in and drowned. The story says the parents are on their way to the hospital and that the Grandmother accompanied the one that is being treated. You NEVER leave a child or children to roam around alone by a pool or anywhere else. The cold temps would explain why no one else was at the pool and saw what happened.”

“If West Virginia had put abolishing the EPA on a ballot, the citizens would have overwhelmingly voted to abolish this agency. They have been too afraid for too many years that regulations will destroy jobs. Now they can't use their water and the rest of the country will have to pay to clean up this mess. This is not a natural disaster. This is a disaster that was waiting to happen. You can't let the children of this state pay for the irresponsible, foolish actions of West Virginia, but there should be consequences. Texas-style refusals to regulate resulted in a small town being blown up and to date, they haven't changed anything, including their views on regulatory agencies and inspections, but they sure do stick their hands out for Federal funds. I suspect the same attitude will hold true for West Virginia.”

“Florida's Stand Your Ground law has given people the idea that anytime they don't like the actions of another person, they are empowered to use deadly force. Too many other states have enacted similar laws that have caused too many deaths. Unarmed teens are playing music you don't like or are too loud? Kill 'em. Someone is knocking on your door too loud? Kill 'em. Someone hurt in a traffic accident is seeking help? Kill 'em. Now we have a trained, retired police officer who is bothered by a man texting in a theater. Why move to different seats when you can just kill him? When the NRA makes sure that every patron in every movie theater is armed with guns, we can have more violence and death in the audience than on the screens at movie theaters. When do we stop letting this be falsely peddled as a Constitutional right to defend ourselves??”

“Are you being forced to marry someone of your same sex? Until then, it's not punishing you, and you aren't a victim. Rather than them move, you might want to consider relocating where they share your beliefs. How about the Middle East where it's not legal and religion is the law of the land. There's Afghanistand, Iran, Iraq, Saudi Arabia. I'm sure you'll enjoy it. Your beliefs mirror theirs.”

“Saw a quote from Lyndon Johnston saying that if you give people someone to look down on they will agree with you. They want to feel vindicated in looking down on someone. Unfortunately, they are hurting themselves in the process. Until they feel the pain personally, they will continue to follow anyone that gives a group to look down on.”

“Somewhere there is a facility that saw $$$ by agreeing to this. Somewhere there is a doctor who is seeing money by performing the insertion of a feeding tube on a deceased child. Frauds are everywhere and all of them are going to be trying to collect. There are children that are alive that are going hungry. My contributions will go to the living. Those that contribute to the inevitable fund are throwing their money away.”

“I considered the same thing- money grubbers looking to get rich off some poor woman's pain. But that doesn't make sense. I doubt this family has the kind of money it would take to pay the bills for the extensive care Jahi is going to need. Last time I checked the donations were only around $35 - hardly a windfall and probably not enough to cover a tenth of the actual costs. Insurance will not likely pay - they consider the child dead and won't pay for medical care for a dead person. I think that those willing to help are doing it out of compassion more than money.”

“The other thing it will allow is a company to have an employee coming in at undesireable hours and still being part time. I know of retailers that will schedule an employee for one..yes ONE hour. That one hour at minimum wage doesn't even pay for the gas.”

“I just got out of retail in April, and I totally understand what you mean. We were directed to do so at times. I used to have a no-less-than-4-hour-shifts motto that I stuck to, but that isn't always what the big bosses wanted.”

“So depriving someone of their livlihood for stating what they honestly believe is justified in your mind? Sadly, liberals believe those who don't agree with their way of thinking should be silenced by any means possible. It's a form of bullying used by tyrants throughout history.”
