Sounds like you're hiding something...

Reports can be anything you want them to me. I've read reports that Obama is good for the USA. I don't believe them.

If you spent half as much time reading (and, heaven forbid, thinking) then perhaps your posts would come across as at least half-baked. You are clearly too clueless to have even the slightest sense of embarrassment.

I'd like to apologize for the following:

Putting money on the wrong horse in the national.
Buying spaghetti for dinner, but now I feel like rice
Saying that Wii remote was broken when in fact it just needed new batteries.
Blaming my daughter for breaking the leg on a globe, when I broke it after I had "fixed" it, it was just a dodgy join.
Stating that a local shooting was gang related, when it was actually a domestic.
Saying Amanda Knox did it, then she got off.

So did Nidal Hassan, yet.... mass murder in the name of ......not the same God recognized by the majority of Christians, Jews and Muslims.

I was commenting on the original posters who suggested a domestic source (ie White right wing, Tea Party, whatever) of this attack, suggesting international terrorism was not a factor.

There are several gun threads and I will not get into that here, other than to say, some Dem will use this as a political excuse to remove guns from AMCITZ.

Also, why not bring race into it, while you are at it? How many of those murders were within the same ethnic group? What was the cause? Oakland really why not Chicago or DC? You debate fails there.
But, but, but. This is NOT INTERNATIONAL TERRORISM !!!! These people have been radicalised whilst living in the US as US citizens.

Maybe we should stop all those New Englanders that travel back to East Anglia to discover their roots as well, in case they get any weird ideas and try and introduce Morris Dancing or Barrel Rolling, wholly un-American past-times.

So, are you going to create several tiers of citizenship now ? In the land where all people are equal and have equal opportunity, that would be truly astonishing.

And, by the way, what the h*ll is an ethnic group ? I have Russian, French, English and Welsh blood - does that make me Less British ? Should I maybe only have 22 1/2 pages in my passport; only sing 2/3 of the national anthem ?

You are trying to make a binary solution out of a complex set of issues. It's too simplistic.

Only 3 of the commandments are against the law in most werstern countries, and they are pretty basic obvious rules that any community will come to very quickly.
