Shots Fired

Oh dear.  And Congresswoman Giffords (D-AZ) is among the 12 victims.

If THIS is the shooters YouTube page, he may be simply bat-shite CUHrazy.

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.

I imagine YouTube will pull that video series soon enough.

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.

Any word yet on the guys motivations? He's gotta be insane. No hope of getting away.

His motivations seem to be, "my delusions told me to do this". Youngish guy. He may not even be 21. So who knows where he got his gun if that is the case.

So far, 6 dead, 12 wounded, perp's in custody. But if you live in a state with Open and/or Concealed Carry, then CARRY, damn it! Tam said a little while ago (paraphrasing) that her gun comes off when she's behind locked doors, about to go to bed or taking a shower, then it's in arm reach. That's the world we live in. Good advice. Too bad this idiot in Az. won't be making Jay's DGC.

Delusional. Nucking Futs.

Symptom of the times. We can expect more 'random crazies' as the frogs reach the boiling point.

Interesting to watch the Media go on the attack, Libeling people and groups.

Sad the the death of innocents would release the media hate.
