    My father is a voting Democrat who supports Obama, who's convinced that another AWB won't happen. He waves me off, and tells me "he's got other more important things to worry about!":sigh:

    Ignorance is bliss.

    The neighbor behind me is a Sikh. In fact thee large Sikh families own several homes in the neighborhood. They are all good people. It is also true you never will find a male Sikh without his knife.

    Muzzie army MD opens up at Ft. Hood and it's "domestic terrorism." White guy opens up at Sikh temple and it's not. Got it. HH

    I'm waiting for Rabbi to chime in, I enjoy reading his posts, which tend to be insightful and logical. [​IMG]

    And that would have been more acceptable?



    Sounds more like a justified shoot to me.

    I am waiting for details. We dont seem to know very much right now. Without enough data, I cant "do the math."

    I love how after the fact the MRAP's and "tac" teams show up. It's like show and tell for the cops, "Hey look what I'm running on my patrol rifle! But boy, they get kinda heavy after holding it 20 minutes."
    It seems like they think it's a parade.

    Certain people just salivate when something like that happens. Just to use it for their "gun control" political agenda. That is just sick.

    I believe he was being sarcastic - getting ahead of those here who make that suggestion seriously.

    Meanwhile another 7 killed and 35 wounded in weekend Chicago shootings….

    And in other news 300,000,000 Americans were not hit by gunfire and enjoyed a peaceful day….

    Well, it's not like the local civilians who have their own guns rushed to the scene to take care of things. You know, the "well regulated militia" thingy...

    But a privatized police department at the lowest bidder would have had a more reasonable and measured response... you know, show up long enough after the 9-1-1 calls so they only need to take some reports. Then wouldn't need all them "toys."

    Privatized PD is the way to go, man!

    I'm pretty sure they consider it an act of terrorism because he decided to kill a bunch of people based on their religion.:upeyes: Maybe you missed that part.


    The irony being that, apparently, a veteran didn't know enough about Muslims to tell them apart from Sikhs - they are pretty easy to tell apart. You'd think, if you hated people enough to give up your life to kill a few, you'd at least pick the right ones - maybe check the phone book to see if that church is listed as Muslim?

    I was just thinking of the kid on the old Johnny Quest cartoons who was dressed like a Sikh, but called "Hadji" (which is a muslim thing). Maybe this guy watched a lot of Johnny Quest. Did he shoot any bulldogs?

    No. But definitely more ironic.

    Gunman thinks he's shooting up a bunch of Muslims. Feels pretty proud of himself. Turns out they're Sikhs. DUH!

    Ironically the official and mainstream media line so far is the exact opposite of your statement and hypocritical.

    You can be both a terrorist and mentally ill, lone wolf or not. Hassan and this latest killer may be both.

    breaking: shooter an active serviceman out of Fort Bragg(Fox said fort bragg, california??? wtf?!) but his name is wade michael page.

    thats what it says on the home page anyways. But when you click on the story, it gets it right and says NC, but also lists him as a former soldier. Great reporting we got going on here fellas.

    on the home page it said "active soldier from fort bragg, CA)

    "URGENT: Sources close to the investigation tell Fox News they have identified the suspect in shooting at a Sikh temple that left seven dead as Wade Michael Page, 40, an active Army serviceman out of Fort Bragg, Calif."
