Indignant because Jesus had healed on the Sabbath, the synagogue ruler said to the people, There are six days for WORK. So come and be healed on those days, not on the Sabbath. Luke 13:14
After going to the opening of the Batman movie and hearing about the killer it basically fit into the plot perfectly as good against evil. We saw in real life what evil looks like as we watched on the screen a depiction of the very same thing as well as the fragility of the human mind and conscious. The movie was excellent as it had all of the action and intrigue we have come to expect from a Christopher Nolan film. This was a well written, acted and directed movie which for those like the shooter can inflict them in very dark and dangerous ways. Many have predicted months ago the breakdown of our moral compass causing very dangerous times as the meltdown of our economy and moral fabric continue.
The number one target by the Dinocrat Media will be guns and the easy accessibility of them in our open society. They will be making all sorts of connections between guns and these types of violent acts while ignoring the fact a kid dressed up like The Joker and shot a theater full of people. One of the very disturbing parts of the Joker was his absolute lack of a conscience just the same as this shooter so he chose the perfect character. It was as if he wanted to see if he could murder people the way the Joker did without the slightest bit of hesitation from a moral standpoint. This is what our society is breeding as many have been saying for decades and especially in this decade as the moral thermometer is reaching absolute zero.
If the outcry is to limit the number of guns perhaps we should look at limiting the number of guns in movies and video games? We are raising a generation of young boys who are already genetically programmed to fight and kill and we are shoving tens of thousands of killings into their cranium while not giving them any type of context or definitions of when and what to kill vs what to protect from injury and expect them to sort this out themselves? Even the Batman movie was loaded with guns and girls to let the cerebral cortex get bathed in testosterone sending messages to young boys to kill the ones who deserve to die and you walk away with the girl. Just as we should not limit people of their rights to guns we shouldnt be limiting movies to their right to gunfights. What we do need is for the filmmakers like Nolan to accept some societal responsibility and begin to consider limiting their body counts rather than making them bigger and more dramatic.
The problem both the shooter and Batman had is they had no moral compass since the movie was stuck in Eastern mysticism which has no real morality. It basically says you are your own god and you attempt to become a godlike creature which is impossible. Batman tries to be the symbol of morality and truth, but without God and the 10 Commandments which he ignores completely, there is no way to measure good. When you have no God then you can come up with villains such as his nemesis who believes he is doing good by destroying Gotham City to rid it of evil and decadence since he is also a god which is what amorality leads a person to believe. This is what is being preached in our media, anything you come up with is moral if you believe it is moral and be tolerant of that amorality.
Liberalism not only tolerates any type of immoral behavior but sanctifies it to break down society and its mores. As these mores are broken down and destroyed there becomes less and less for society to hold onto as we saw in the movie and the movie theatre and a type of justice system that is based on whatever rules gummit wants to put in place. When you glorify sin while God says to stay away from it since it is a sin destroys lives, what is there to hold onto especially for those who are mentally ill or confused? You then go from Batman who represents good but is an amoral person to the Joker who is completely without conscience who will kill someone for the thrill of it. Someone who will kill hospitals full of people simply to get laughs out of destroying the most helpless and terrorizing society simply to shake up their world, you have moral confusion. Heath Ledger played this part so well it ended up destroying his life and committing suicide with a drug overdose. Now we have a mixed up kid who turned into this monster and tried to murder an entire theater of innocent victims playing the same character.
As this society and economy has melted down over the last four years and everything has been done by the media and gummit to make that happen, the societal morality has been melting with it. As kids like this find their lives empty and lacking in any productive measure we are going to find more and more of this occurring. We are seeing Flash Mobs robbing stores and mobs taking to the streets as they are ginned up for racial extortion we see people having less and less to hold onto. We are witnessing as in the movie the Occupy people being given power in the claim of fairness when the fairest form of economics is just the opposite, work hard, have faith in God and succeed.
The commie libs in Hollywood and DC are taking us into some very dangerous territory morally. They are running to a place that has no right or wrong and kids are having to decide for themselves what is right and wrong because the leaders refuse to tell them. He was an honors student in a liberal college being brainwashed by the High Priests of liberalism professors, on how to be more tolerant while how intolerant Christians are compared to their amorality. Now we are having boys growing up on violent movies and video games with 24/7 access to porn and its fantasy world and telling them to decide for themselves as they spiral into emptiness and darkness. I guess we should be glad our leaders didnt tell us to be more tolerant of this kids acting out. We have boiled an immoral stew which is now producing monsters who are acting more and more violent as the economy continues to fall apart forcing more extreme reactions. Look for these to become regular occurrences as we continue this path.
The commie libs are going to say we can solve this problem by keeping God out of the schools and our god gummit taking the guns out of society. This is trying to cure cancer with a hammer since it isnt the guns that are the problem it is the monsters we are growing without any sort of moral compass. Until we bring God and Christ back into our schools and society we are going to be plagued with kids who are told to reject God, the 10 Commandments and all the structure and morality that comes with it. We are like the Jews in the wilderness to attempt to get through some of the toughest times of our Countrys histoir without God and that is a formula for failure. Until we turn back to God and worship him unashamed we will have these boys slaughtering innocent people by the hundreds since right now their moral base may be Batman or it may be The Joker. It isnt about a political solution like banning guns in the theater or on the screen it is about allowing Jesus back in the school. We are truly fighting Good against Evil in our country and Batman is not the answer, only Jesus Christ is truly good and he can heal Gotham City.
Pray for America
It’s Chickenpooper all morning! The democratic driveby media love their new spokesperson John, he “looks” Republican!
Extra credit: How many times will they ask him about banning guns and ammo sales?
Meat the Press has the anti-gun nut McCarthy on... Expect her to rant. Why take away my gun, Carol, when it was some looney Occupy Wall Street protestor who did it? You know, the ones Pelosi and Obama praised?!
EXCELLANT ANALYSIS...you have captured the whole theme of the evil we are facing and our society’s egotism hurtling blindly towards self annhilation.
Without God and a reminder of what our true moral compass is, our society “becomes” the very evil and amorality and immorality we now purport to be harmless “relativism”.
This shooter is the manifestation of decades of “do your own thing” spiraling backwards to a time of Brutish “civilization “.....we may end up meeting our own Islamofascist Nemesis and we won’t be able to tell the difference.
So now we get to see if it was just a long day or if he is as nutty as we saw in his two press conferences on Friday.
Thanks for thread AB. We’ll see if Tiger has enough gas left to challenge in The Open.
Not me, Bray!
But, yes, an excellent analysis!!!!
I like your catch line. So, did Altura refuse to wear the burka, or what?
Here is how “democratic” Egypt is turning out:
Wake up America!
I figured the morning topic would be Aurora and the Need for Gun Control on the talkies.
F&F just reported that Perp planned his attack weeks in advance.
[I suspect he left a ‘manifesto’ somewhere. Usually, these kinds of perps do.]
One of your best Bray and right on point. Was talking to some family mmembers day before yesterday and used the exact words you did. We have lost our moral compass. It is no more difficult than that. Since the sixties we have been told that morals are a personal choice. I’m okay. You’re okay. Do what you want. The only thing that surprises me about the Aurora shooting is that anyone was surprised.
He(Hickenlooper) was incoherent on Friday. It had to be clear to all that he just wanted to get in front of the camera. He had no facts or information to present, just absolute non-sense.
With Diane Feinstein on the air, gun control is all we are going to hear from her!
F&F preview of FNS
Discussion is on gun control. Wallace says Dems in Washington won’t touch the issue because it doesn’t help them.
Wallace does say that both sides have valid claims; that if some in the audience had been armed, they might have prevented more deaths.
Brilliant as usual.Of course this is about living amongst a Godless society.
We have learned over the years that an armed society is a safe society.Had several of those attending the movie in Colorado been armed the death toll may have been less. Guns don't kill people idiot, brainwashed or psychotic individuals kill people.
Colorado will be a convenient diversion,act of chaos for the regime for a week or so,it slows the momentum of Romney and gives the left an opening to chat about gun control one more time.Hillary already has that wired by the way through the UN,which she will sign or has already signed on behalf of the US.Links available here,if I get time I will look them up later.
In the end the solution will be to revert to the good times. The 50's when families sat around a table, prayed before eating dinner together, and on Sunday attended church together. Without God in our lives there will always be an emptiness that will be filled with all the tyrannical moves now being made by the left.
It will remain our job to lead those lost souls out of the darkness and into the light as bray as so eloquently stated one more time.
Back in the 80’s when we had communist terrorists (Bader-Meinhoff, Red Army Faction, etc) and Islamic terrorists (PLO, Libyans, etc) attacking us in Europe, the military made it a point to train us on our “situational awareness” so we could be less a victim and more a survivor.
Some of the things they taught us:
Being aware of one’s surroundings and identifying potential threats and dangerous situations is more of a mindset than a hard skill. You can train yourself to do this!
When in public buildings/events, know where the exits are. Stay close to them. In a restaurant or bar, don’t turn your back to the entranceway. Ideally, sit facing the door and a close by exit.
Keep looking around. Note the people around you. Anyone acting weird, nervous, out of place—be ready to react.
Take different routes going to and from places you often visit. Don’t be predictable in your public routine.
If is doesn’t seem/feel right—it isn’t. You subconscious will register things your conscious mind will ignore.
Profile. Sure it’s not politically correct but it’s necessary to your defense. Anyone is capable of crime but you’ll identify the most threatening and prioritize.
I would add go armed.
ooops! I just go sooo enthralled with his analysis..ha. You know that happens!
Sounds very much like the training we give our new police recruits.
see my post #7...yeesh.
agree..you are right.. see my post 7
Brilliant minds think alike.ha.
I may have not been clear enough in my post. What I meant is that it surprises me that anyone is shocked that this happened.
Aurora and gun control can buy the left up to two weeks of diversion from just how bad ozero was doing in the polls,his brilliant take on small business and the rest of their imminent self destruction that was well under way.Its a huge gift for them.Look for John McCain to mandate a new law that stops all campaigning indefinitely any time the left is losing.
Exactly. Godless societies are headed nowhere.I would add false gods such as Mohammed in the mgmt. society aka “Islam” also lead to chaos.

I just went off on a tangent.
I always sit on an aisle in a movie theater because I am a diabetic and need to often use the restroom. But I’m also aware of other movie goers and am subconsciously tuned to weird behavior.
Several years ago my wife and I were watching a movie and I noticed some teenagers laughing and conversing quietly... Yet the kept looking over their shoulders and laughing even more. Suddenly they got up and left. I was completely aware by then! Immediately I started to cough, as did my wife and everyone else. I grabbed my wife and ran out! She was pissed at me. But then everyone started to come out, hacking, coughing, eyes watering... Those kids had let off a pepper spray bottle when they left. My wife and I escaped easily due to situational awareness. Not so much for the others. Several people had to be taken away by ambulance...
Still, we all got multiple free movie passes from the theater on that one!
“Still, we all got multiple free movie passes from the theater on that one!”
Apparently the dark cloud had a silver lining.
Wow lots here.Should be interesting to track the money,where it came from, who and why.
Just checking in. Just watched Andy Kaufman biography. I think that man’s still alive. And I’m not one of those infowar/Alex Jones fans either.
Letters never die. They are always lurking out there, somewhere.
Thought I’d join y’all till the first weekly “404” error then I shall take my leave.
Been keeping up with this shooter thing, so glaaaaaad I got that gun.
Today, ladies and gems, Obamer is going to Colorado. Cause no way can he avoid the political of it.
Goodness I look remarkably like Diane Feinstein, not that I’m necessarily proud of it.
He doesn’t exactly inspire confidence, if you ask me. I got to thinking Colorado Springs should set up a perimeter and keep everyone else out. Maybe a moat.
Am reminded of a description of Hickenlooper’s type from a web site called Cripes Suzette: Lots of guys who look like the Lost Boys of Never Never Land, all riding around on bikes with backpacks on.
My husband worked in Denver for a year and a half and was a fish out of water there. Lots of people playing tennis, biking, hiking, etc. Hubby likes to drink beer and smoke. LOL!
I look up at the screen and almost jumped.
SHE LOOKS EXACTLY LIKE MY MOTHER!!!
Husband pooh-poohs, says I don’t look like Feinstein.
Yes I do, cept I think I’m younger than her.
Feinstein is so concerned of the guns the Perp used. She ignores the explosives that could have demolished the 3-story apartment building and surrounding area.
Johnson brings up the explosives and says that a deranged individual, bent on killing, will find a way and the methods to do it.
[Feinstein stays with The Agenda — gun control, while ignoring the explosives.]
You must live here occasionally to have such an understanding.
Chickenlooper is a businessman who owns restaurants. He also employed illegal aliens in his kitchens. He was elected because he kept his head down as the Republicans ate their own candidates and spit them out.
Sorry, didn’t mean to impugn all Denver people. You do have a lot more Hickenlooper types out there than here in Indy. I think the weather attracts them.
Good one today, bray.
Well you bring up a talking point for the Romney campaign.
Let this gun control thing take a strong run for it and the Romney people, including the Beltway pubs just for oncit, should say what you said....about those bombs which were NOT guns.
And if they ever need a doppleganger for Feinstein on Sattidy Night Live, I shall volunteer.
The crony capitalist culture of corruption brought to you by Democrats.
Apparently much of the "accelerant" used was gasoline. Maybe we should discuss banning the sale of gasoline.
Almost as bad as Barack Obama, who ordered flags at half-mast for the victims of this shooting. He speaks the language of Americans, but he has no real idea of what the words mean.
Too bad the shooter was not a Muslim terrorist suicide bomber. Then he would have taken himself out as well and we would be spared the spectacle of a trial and the endless analysis that will come along with it.
And I'm sure liberals will want to rehabilitate the shooter, but I can only think of 1 job he would ever be qualified for now; handing out automatic weapons to Mexican drug dealers in the Eric Holder Justice Dept.
And they are always Democrats or whackos who vote for Democrats. Conservatives don't have the right mindset to do things like this.
Then our domestic terrorists would be reduced to parking a Volt next to their target...
If that building had exploded at around midnight when he set the music BEFORE he left for the theatre, the police and all medical units would have rushed there and been unavailable for the movie theatre.
THAT was his strategy.
someone could have called the plice about the loud noise, police arrive and then the explosion..He left the door cracked open, unlocked.
