In the 1950's, God was a large part of the MAJORITY of American life. An 8 year old child could order a .22 rifle by mail, & have it shipped to his house. Then that same 8 year old could toss it over his shoulder AND WALK DOWN THE MAIN STREET IN TOWN and nobody would bat an eyelash. Back then, not one person would EVER think of mowing down people just for a body count. The majority of people had morals. The fear of God's judgement was enough of a deterrent. Every single year since those days, religion & God have been slowly chipped away at, and now you have Columbine, Fort Hood, Aurora, and now this latest one.

When there's no God to answer to, what do you have to lose by either cheating your fellow man out of his life savings, or mowing him down in cold blood for no other reason besides sport?

I'm not a church going guy - I'm damaged goods - I was born & raised in the Godless Northeast, remember -- but it doesn't take a rocket scientist to see the parallels of the removal of religion from the mainstream, & the subsequent drop in morals from our populace.

So like I said - you don't want God in society? Then you reap what you sow. Get used to it.

The reason I posted the video and didn't comment was is it is too soon to know what really happened. You all know this crises junky, tinfoil hat believes some conspiracy theories are facts but it is too soon to know about this incident, not that I expect to ever get the full truth. ;)

Still didn't hear the cops say there were 4 shooters--just 1 guy who seemed to know very little factually???? If any of you gloom & doomers have doubts--listen 3 or 4 times like I just did--this whole situation sux, but let's give the authoritys a chance sort it out before all you recliner legal experts jump to to many conclusions. :(

Good post Smitty, says it clear enough for me.

"It's a C.I.A. plot, Hank, a C.I.A. plot. ~ Dale Gribble :D

There's another ancient saying I heard, maybe it was from Rome, something like, "Woe be it to the country that invites strangers in."

The UN wants nothing more than to disarm the world so they can force a one world gov't on us. Wouldn't put it past them if they influenced unstable people to carry out atrocities to keep changing public opinion.

Consider Anders Breivik, he's been put away as a psycho. What he did was horrible; but he felt completely disempowered as he witnessed Norway being inundated with third world muslims; and he took it out on the liberals there. He wanted to preserve the purity of his culture and his race.

The white race is something like 16% of the world's population now, we used to keep the third world beaten down, sorry to say it. Now they're all scrambling to take everything we've strived for for the last 200 years, and the libs can't help them enough. If the liberals were at the Alamo, they would have taken the gates down to make picnic tables for the Mexicans.

Immigrants don't assimilate into our culture anymore, they come into our communities and have no intention of becoming Americans. It's not surprising that some people can't take it anymore.

This country has been a great experiment in tolerance, and justice for all. It's just that we're being overwhelmed, as the world population grows out of control.

It seems like it's gonna get worse before it gets better.

"He was one of us" is a phrase repeated several times in Joseph Conrad's book "Lord Jim"

It implies a social community sharing common ideals and beliefs. It is basic to our nature to form such communities. It is characteristic of a strong community or nation. It need not be founded on race or religion though it frequently is. When there is wrong doing by "one of us" it is much harder to understand than if committed by someone who is not "one of us". It is the unique social contract of America that enabled our unprecedented technology and wealth. Any thing that works to the detriment of that contract harms the country.

Americans used to feel superior to Europeans in our political system. More and more the reverse seems to be true. American ideals are outdated and mocked.

I'll buy the bullets too, much less expensive than feeding him for life afterwards and the rehabilitation he'll get to endure.


the only problem with that thinking, which I agree, Is that the gun toting jerk shot himself to death, instead of letting police fill him with bullet holes.

What a coincidence. That was the same conclusion in Soviet Russia. Great minds think alike.

most of those criminally insane mass shooters are not fearful of being shot down by police, an armed citizen, or spending life in a maximum security prison. I doubt GOD ever enters their limited thought process.
