A couple days ago a gunman (with a possible accomplice) attempted to kill a United States Representative. He ended up killing 6( which included a federal judge and a little girl) and injured many others (including U.S. Rep. Gabrielle Giffords) This act is horrible and retarded. It has come out in the media that the shooter is part of the "Tea Party" movement. Let me clear something up. I talked about this in one of my earlier post. There are two types of Tea Party movements. There is the one started by Ron Paul that sole purpose is peaceful demonstration against Obama's taxes and other stuff like ending the Fed. Then on the other side you have the "Tea Party" movement led by crazy Republicans like Sarah Palin and Glen beck, which is filled with a bunch of racist and ignorant people. The sad thing is most people dont know the difference and this ignorance is leading to the demonization of the entire Tea Party movement. Anyway back to the main situation. The shooter Jared Lee Loughner attempted to assassinate this representative over her stance on the HealthCare Bill. I dont like the bill as much as anyone, because we as a country cant afford it, but Im not gonna pick up a gun and shoot my state rep. We still have the right of peaceful protest, and if you dont like someone's policies use nonviolent tactics to get your point out. By going on this mini shooting spree, this retard ruined his case. There is no justification for shooting a 9 year old girl. She had absolutely nothing to do with anything, an yet got caught in the crossfire. The shooter is a mentally sick man who not only aligned himself with the Sarah Palin "Tea Party" movement, but it has also come out that he has some ties to a white supremacy group. This guy is covered in issues. I heard that he was obsessed with mind control, and even took part in some crazy satanic rituals. This guy deserves to be given the needle for the killing of the girl alone. Also on the flip side, I have a feeling that the Obama administration will try to "capitalize off this tragedy". One of Clinton's former advisors Robert Shapiro, is quoted as saying , “The bottom line here is that Americans don’t believe in President Obama’s leadership,” said Shapiro, adding, “He has to find some way between now and November of demonstrating that he is a leader who can command confidence and, short of a 9/11 event or an Oklahoma City bombing, I can’t think of how he could do that.” This is shocking, but I won't rule it out. Also another dangerous thing that comes out of it is it continues to keep people fighting about this bs left/right nonsense. People are too consumed by sides, that they are fighting with each other, which then leads to more division in this country. At this time we cant afford to be fighting with each other, we should be uniting. The left and right is like WWE. It looks like they're fighting but at the end of the day its all fake, but we as the spectators believe it to be true and continually fight with each other. The last thing I found very dangerous is some politicians are coming out saying that we should get rid/ make really big changes to the first and second amendment. Those amendments is what makes us different from all the other countries in the world, and for them to be stripped away from us due to the actions of some mentally ill psychopath is ignorant and stupid....
These are just my initial thoughts. They are a bit disorganized. I need to do some more research, but I have come across some interesting articles though:
