Let's hope there isn't a mass shooting at a Wallmart. All the employees wear targets on their backs :shock:

Figures the Austin bombing terrorist was a Trump supporter, he was white, hence not being called a terrorist for committing acts of terrorism....

"Investigators released few details about Conditt, except his age and that he was white. Neighbors say he was home-schooled. He later attended Austin Community College from 2010 to 2012, according to a college spokeswoman, but he did not graduate....

In a 2012 online blog that the college spokeswoman said Conditt created as part of a U.S. government class project, he gives his opinion on several issues, often in response to someone else’s commentary. Conditt wrote that gay marriage should be illegal, argued in favor of the death penalty and gave his thoughts on “why we might want to consider” eliminating sex offender registries.

In the “about me” section of the blog, Conditt wrote that he........did view himself as conservative."

...now if only more people were armed with bombs, this could havre been stopped. We need more good guys with bombs to stop the bad guys with bombs..... :P <sarcasm for the sarcastically challenged>




Note that the Austin terrorist bomber said he wanted "sex offender registries" dropped. What is it with conservatives/Trump supporters and their fixation on pedophilia (Roy Moore, Trump staffer George Nader)? Ban abortion so they can rape and impregnate children? wtf is wrong with these people?

People are nowadays called terrorists when they are affiliated with a terrorist organization. Since at the moment the most prominent terrorist group is ISIS, most terrorists are those with a Muslim background. This was different when the IRA, ETA, RARA, RAF etc were active. In contrast, the Dutch Moluk train/school hijackers are not called terrorist attacks, although they killed innocent people and terrorized others.

In the Netherlands, the case of Tristan van der V.* finally passed through court.

Tristan, then 24, shot dead 6 people and himself in a violent spree in a shopping precinct in Alphen aan de Rijn, on April 9, 2011.
Tristan had been suffering from severe mental problems since the age of 14, in 2006 he had spent time in a closed institution following a suicide attempt, in 2008 he attempted suicide twice. In February and March 2003 at age 16 he was involved in shooting incidents with an air pressure gun. In 2004 he joined a shooting club, but when they found out about the incidents (charges were initially dropped) they revoked his license in 2005.
In 2008 he again appealed for a gun license - later in the same month when he was hospitalized after a suicide attempt. Much against the wishes of his parents.

The court case was to see if the police was to blame for giving him a weapons license. It turned out the police officer charged with the work was over-loaded. They were found guilty and they now have to cough up the money for the victims and the mental trauma caused.



This is to note that even in a major weapon ban, mistakes can and will happen and by allowing firearms, even with a background check, mistakes will happen. A small snafu caused by work overload cost 6 innocent people their lives.



*Last name omitted in keeping with Dutch legislation

You actually believe those cartoons you post , don't you ?

Abortions were banned and illegal , MNG , and people still got them .

When the United States first became independent, most states applied English common law to abortion. This meant it was not permitted after quickening, or the start of fetal movements, usually felt 15–20 weeks after conception.[6]

Abortions became illegal by statute in Britain in 1803, and various anti-abortion statutes began to appear in the United States in the 1820s that codified or expanded common law. In 1821, a Connecticut law targeted apothecaries who sold "poisons" to women for purposes of inducing an abortion, and New York made post-quickening abortions a felony and pre-quickening abortions a misdemeanor in 1829. Some argue that the early American abortion laws were motivated not by ethical concerns about abortion but by concern about the procedure's safety. However, some legal theorists point out that this theory is inconsistent with the fact that abortion was punishable regardless of whether any harm befell the pregnant woman and the fact that many of the early laws punished not only the doctor or abortionist, but also the woman who hired them.[7]

That's not the point of your posted cartoon , little guy , is it ?

You proscribe to the idea that if you ban abortions , they will stop ( if you believe what you post ).
I merely corrected you , and your cartoonists' , unproven theory.

Nobody mentioned coat hangers , genius.

Let's Go Back in Time - Eugene Chadbourne

Let's go back in time
Coat hangers in dark alleys
Bloody fingers caked with grime
It's not yours it's mine
Let's Go Back in Time

A long bus ride feeling nauseous
A white bucket stained with clorox
Let's make love, let's make love a crime
Let's go back in time

We've heard from the Supreme Court
A decision made by 5/6th of a wart
or was it 3 4ths?
Could they jumpstart one of their hearts?
Let's say we're just like Ghandi
Guns n bombs, that's just dandy
Let's see who gets the news coverage
A great diversion for others
Who cares about The Mothers?

So, you say you miscarried?
We'd like to see the blood you lost
The state suggests that you get married
Right now, or there'll be a heavy fine
Come income tax time
And when they grow up we don't care what they can't do
Once the cord is cut, well then, our responsibility is through
But don't make them think it belongs to you

Let's go back in Time
Coat hangers in dark alleys
Bloody fingers caked with grime
It's not yours it's mine
Let's go back in time

I can't stand the music (the version on Eugene Von Beethoven's 69th SinFunny), but he's a damned fine lyricist.

The ones in power who are anti abortion certainly don't give a shit about some poor woman's fetus. If they did they would also care about the lives of the young men and women they carelessly ship off to die in one of their lame wars. They thrive on unwanted children. They want those kids alive to buy their diapers, baby food, computers, phones, insurance policies, televisions, drugs etc and to fight their wars.

These folks are not against abortion for "religious" reasons. Not in high places where they merely use religion to further their own advantage. These folks invented religion just for this kind of purpose.

In general it's the lower/middle class children who are the most susceptible to the media's ongoing mass deception. As the corporate media helps to decimate the middle class keep your eyes open for those who are desperately trying to maintain the status quo.

Where is the "I Must Have More Nudity" thread when you need it? :?

Nude Gunman Kills 3 At Waffle House

(CNN) - Three people were killed and four were wounded in a shooting Sunday at a Waffle House in the Nashville area, Metro Nashville Police tweeted.

Police say the gunman, who was nude, opened fire at about 3:25 a.m. (4:25 a.m. ET).

CNN affiliate WSMV reported that the gunman was naked except for a green jacket when he entered the restaurant in the town of Antioch.

A customer wrestled away the rifle, police said.

Authorities are asking for the public's help in finding 29-year-old Travis Reinking of Morton, Illinois. Police said the gunman arrived in a vehicle registered to Reinking, though the gunman was last seen walking nude away from the scene.

It has occurred to me that, in this instance, the best defense against a bad guy with a gun was a good guy without a gun.

The suspect was last seen not wearing . . . 8)

It doesn't have 30 + round clips that are easily changed and anything Alex Jones is involved in is automatically crap since his despicable handling of the Sandy Hook story... :P
