I think it is meant to hurt romney and the rich. I don’t think they care about OWS.

“Dr. Comilla Sasson, at the University of Colorado Hospital where many of the victims were taken, said they are currently operating on nine critical patients and have treated 22 in all. She called the hospital “an absolutely terrifying scene all night.”


I went to medical school with her. Strange to see her name in the midst of all this.

Dearest random Facebook people who keep confusing me for a mass murderer and yet still send me Facebook requests.;

I appreciate the fact that you are trying to become better-informed about the occurrences last night in Aurora, but you have been somewhat mislead, in that I am not the man who did it. I am not a 24-year-old gun-slinging killer from Aurora, I am a 22-year-old book-slinging mass eate...r from Littleton. Somewhat distinct, I would assume. But I would appreciate if you would read this particular post an not assume that it would be interesting to be friends with someone on Facebook who is very probably going to be in jail and not be able to confirm your friend requests anyway, or even be friends with his girlfriend, who had the rather interesting experience of having to tell someone she had a job interview with that she is not, in fact dating a serial killer. James Holmes happens to be a pretty common name, surprisingly, so try not to jump the gun.

Regards, A different guy named James Holmes

you may be proven correct, but my post is making a point about apparent connections (to tea party, ows, whatever). james (willie) holmes was a blues songwriter whose track is used in this video.

hoping abc’s suggestion that the james holmes shooter is a member of the tea party is similarly flawed.

I thought the same thing this morning. It’s always strange these things happen when gun control is an upcoming discussion/issue.

I’m not going to go all tin-foil hat here, but I wouldn’t be surprised one bit if this perp either dies in prison or succumbs to a quick death by poisoning.

So I read the article at your link and watched the short video.

There is NO mention of some sort of anger over the theater being full.

The kenyan, just like his muslim brothers, is parading the corpses for political gain. He isn’t notified and does not make statements about the multiple killings that go on every day in Chicago and other democrat controlled cities but then the perpetrators there are Holder’s people who look like the sons obama never had.

Rinse, repeat. I hate to admit it, but when I heard about the shooting, my first thought was..."They're going to blame Rush". He's been on this Bane rant for the past few days. They're going to say that the shooter was a Rush listener. Rush will have to apologize and send a case of his famous tea.

Brian Ross at ABC News already did. He notes a “Jim Holmes” is also a member of the Tea Party. Forget about the fact that’s a pretty common name and he has no verifiable proof it’s the same guy, but gotta get the narrative out there before the facts come in.

Tis best not to speculate, speculation often leads to red faces. Sometimes the truth may never be known. I would not deny you of the pleasure of speculation, who knows you may even be right, and then you can declare a great big “I told you so”, and that, along with a buck or two, will get you a draft beer.

What is the whatever here if it was just some crazed fan thinking he’s Bane?

RottenTomatoes had to shut down their “Dark Night Rises” comment page because too many fans were getting violently rabid in their screeds. Death threats have been issued against people saying negative things about the movie.

There are a lot of loons out there, and the opening of DNR is inspiring them.
Sure, it could have been a “terrorist attack”. Just as much chance, based on what little we know, that it was some nut acting out a deranged fantasy.

FOX (broke down and tuned in just to hear about the shooting) just said Hussein will be speaking in an hour (10 CDT). He obviously hasn’t learned from his past knee jerks to keep his mouth shut until the facts come out. It has nothing to do with coming together as one American family but feeding his ego with some face time. Disgusting.

The poor guy with the facebook page was 24 and black. The only James Holmes in Aurora I could find on facebook, before he was identified as white.

I’m sure it’s the wrong guy, even though he was the right age. There are 2900 James Holmes in the U.S. (one in 100,000) and 300,000 people in Aurora, so the odds are there are about three James Holmes in Aurora. Unfortunately this one is also 24.

That guy would be too old if he graduated in 2000. If he was even just 16 when he graduated, he’d be 28 now.

He looks like a pretty healthy character also.

We’re not talking about the Gifford shooting right now.

Included in the discussion is how the screwed up liberal-leftist media spins the crap out of these stories to make it look like the attacker was a right-wing nutcase. I should post the pieces I have on other such instances: IRS building plane crasher, "unabomber", Lee Harvey Oswald, etc, etc, etc. Got to nip these things in the bud! Not let the BS continue until it's too late to change public opinion.
