I don't want to add to the insanity but something's gotta give here. I'm sick about this shooting in Arizona and while this gunman likely had mental issues and other problems, I wonder how much of the current political garbage isn't fueling people's delusions. I'm not sure what is worse, though, the pitch of the voices before or after this tragedy? Could this tragedy have been avoided? Would tighter gun laws have even stopped someone like this?

blaming serves no purpose, but sadly the left tried to blame others for this tragedy to further their hate filed agenda. That's all they can do....blame others and play 'the victim'.

Oh, the irony.

What exactly is a 'large ammo cartridge'? Is that something like the gun in the Dirty Harry movies?

Jared Lee Loughner who did the shooting seems to have had untreated mental health issues. While his attack doesn't seem motivated by politics directly, or politics that any rational person would understand, his world view seemed to be left of center.


His book list was eclectic but left leaning and included The Communist Manifesto and Mein Kampf these are Communist and Socialist books and are about government being the solution. The Communist Manifesto would be in the far left school of thought today in America.

First, Hitler wasn't a socialist. Second, to try to read anything into political leanings based on this book list is ridiculous.

I do have to laugh at you trying to equate mind control with liberals. I clearly remember people who were claiming that Obama was hypnotizing the public...and those were from the far right fringe.

I also notice that you tend to blame Soros for everything. Kind of weird.

First, Hitler wasn't a socialist.

You know, it is hard for me to take seriously anyone who isn't aware of that fact. It is kind of scary how uninformed people are.

Found this quote by Ron Rosenbaum:

The proof that Hitler was a socialist: his party was called “The National Socialist Democratic Workers Party”. Duh! By that logic you must believe that North Korea is a democracy because its official name is The Democratic Republic of North Korea.

Those are the categories developed by a guy named Nolan. Are they generally accepted?

Sorry, but it was the liberal media and the left wing frnge who behaved ike rabid dogs, so eager to pin this in Sarah Palin and Gen Beck just to further their hate filled agenda. They shamelessly blamed and blamed and ignored the facts. It was a digusting dsplay of the hate filled vitriol that the left continues to display. Just sickening.

I don't recall anyone blaming the far left when President Regan was shot but maybe someone did.
