We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
One veteran Democratic operative, who blames overheated rhetoric for the shooting, said President Barack Obama should carefully but forcefully do what his predecessor did. “They need to deftly pin this on the tea partiers,” said the Democrat. “Just like the Clinton White House deftly pinned the Oklahoma City bombing on the militia and anti-government people.”
And politicans wonder why people do not respect them.
A young mother, who witnessed the shooting yesterday was asked today what she thought caused the shooter to do what he did. Her instant, smooth reply was simple and by the democratic party book:
"it appears to be a lack of resources" she went on about education and suggesting that more money might have provided intervention, etc.
My GOD it did not take these people long. This gal was there with her baby and to support her favorite democrat. Within 24 hours she has the answer pat!
Can this "democratic operative" really be that tone-deaf? Can he not see the hypocrisy in his own hateful self-serving statements? Does he really think this partisan shading of opposition politics won't come back to bite him?
I hereby predict that the next random mass murder in the US will be the fault of any extreme hateful statements by Democratic leadership. Advocacy for social engineering is by definition hate speech.
