There are rants there about each of us forming a new currency, weird date numerology, mind control paranoia, hefty-bag plastic MC Hammer pants. Flag burning. Yeah. Well, crap.

High School friend on Twitter describe him as a pothead, "political radical " and "he was left wing, quite liberal. & oddly obsessed with the 2012 prophecy" back in 2007. His MySPace page listed reading material as Mein Kampf AND the Communist Manifesto, as well as Ayn Rand and Aldus Huxley. His youtube stuff (if it is him) shows him as goldbug type with weird Constitutional theories, and the meaner media sources are trying to paint him as a 'Teabagger,' stressing military connections, and blaming Palin for her targeting of Gifford, who was apparently pro-Obamacare AND hardline on immigration, for electoral defeat. No, painting political actions onto the actions of a clearly insane individual is not appropriate. Crazy did this, not politics. It's not the gun, it's not the Right, it's not the Left, it's the man.
Related, THIS is the best advice from Twitter, from Elizabeth Scalia.
