This is a very fine Christian College. My daughter graduating from there and is where she met a fine Christian boy that she married. She’ll be horrified when she hears this news.

Most of the students are fine christian conservatives so I’m sure there is a lot more then just one tea bagger.

SSRI’s —they’re handing them out like jelly-beans.

Just about EVERY one of these kooks is on them.

Why have friends and go to church when you can just take PILLS?

It’s stupid.

It was most likely the combination of skyrocketting coffee futures and $15/hr barristas in Seattle has elevated his morning “Tall” double mocha latte with soy milk to $53... couldn’t afford his morning joe... and there you are.

"Tea bagger" is slang for a sexual act.

Yeah, considering the Bergdahl flap is a wag-the-dog to take attention off the destructive new emissions rules on coal-fired power plants. They'll lead to big layoffs of coal miners and those "necessary" sharply rising electricity bills Obamugabe promised us.

Oh yeah, whatever happened to the VA scandal? This administration must have a list of spin diversions a mile long to cover the dictator-in-chief whenever he decides to break the law and endanger the country.

It's also an 'up yours' to the homosexuals when used by a conservative.

It wasn’t my impression that it was used in that context.

Most working people are doing 12 hr days or more just to keep up. They don’t have the time or energy to keep up with all the scandals. The administration counts on this. The non working folks are on the dole and don’t care as long as they get their freebies.

Perfect time for the socialists/Marxists (whatever we want to call them) to step up the destruction of our country. My take, FWIW.

Update at 5:05 p.m.: Seattle police said the gunman walked into Otto Miller Hall, shot four people and then began reloading. As he was reloading, SPU staff disarmed him and held him for police.

Update at 5:08 p.m.: The Associated Press is reporting one of the victims has died at Harborview Medical Center.

The lockdown at SPU has ended.

thank you for the update. How sad. I am sure the gun control lobby will jump all over this before the blood is cleaned up. My prayers to those injured and their family's and those of the person killed.

It just seems very suspicious that whenever things are looking really bad for Obama, something is done to distract from what he is doing

Apparently sarcasm isn't FR's strong suit?

After the CO theater shootings, ABC news reporter Brian Ross said the shooter was likely a member of the Tea Party. I was just paraphrasing what the Left would say.

Oops.

1 victim in SPU shooting has died at Harborview


Update at 5:35 p.m.: Seattle police Capt. Chris Fowler, during a media briefing, said the gunman walked into SPU’s Otto Miller Hall and shot three people in the foyer with a shotgun. As the gunman was reloading, a student building monitor grabbed or tackled the gunman and other students then jumped him. They held him until police arrived.

Interesting on that it happened in the Foyer (earlier reports said classroom). The campus is on a main road with other businesses nearby. I figured the shooter was a student - but maybe not.

Good thing it wasn’t the Littleton PD.

The perp would still be discharging his weapon.

“Saw this one coming..I even said yesterday, just you watch, to take the focus off of Traitor Bergdahl, Obama needs a school shooting”

So true, and if they didn’t get one they’d find one of the Newtown CT parents to interview (and the newsflash would blare: “Newtown parent speaks out...coming up at eleven”).

I agree. The administration’s incredibly cynical and America is about lost.
