I was shocked to read of a shooting at this beautiful concert venue until I learned who the acts were. Then, not so much.

One of the most lovely places I’ve ever seen.

Why they would let these ones there I do not know.

Not unlike most mass shootings in America.

Anywhere you have a large gathering of Amish in warm weather, you’ll have trouble. Civil rights are for civil people.

Talk about a stew of boiling gangsta devilishness...

Don’t actually know of these people, but seems a safe bet.

Well, I’m thinking they are not classical artists or opera singers. Just a hunch.

“These extremist Amish types are beginning to scare me.”

Unfortunately, I am beginning to think that they realize that their “free ride” with Obama is coming to an end. In their demented minds, they actually believed that he was their Black Savior. They weren’t smart enough to realize that he was a aberration. That may well lead to more violence as well as a push to get as much as they are able before the “government store” gets shut down.

Nas and Schoolboy Q

whodat?

Apparently someone important. They've been nominated for 7 Grammys.

Don't feel bad. I've never heard of them either. Then again, I listen to music, actual real music, not the talentless, profanity-laced simian gurgles known as hip hop.

Yep, it is.

Colorado has some truly lovely places to see, including this one. It’s too bad that it also seems to be filled with nutballs.

It's beautiful. I attended many, many shows there during my youth in the 80s-90s. It was really a privilege to be able to grow up literally in Red Rocks' shadow.

Not too long ago I saw a white guy, likely early 20s, dressed very similar to the “Pretty Fly for a White Guy” person in the rock video by the band Offspring which came out in the late 1990s. The video mocked the attire ad wannabee culture. He then began to sing rap lyrics out loud and claimed something similar to “I’m not a faggot but I am a maggot. All the girlies wanna **** me because they know I have it.” What genius!

Fear not. Nobody in the targeted SUV was hit, only some bystanders (race not yet determined) who suffered non life-threatening injuries.

Funny... live near Denver and this is the first i have heard of this...

I'm in North Denver, too. It's all the enemedia's talking about on the local news sites.
Nothing about Iraq WMDs
Nothing about the IRS hearings
Nothing about the Southern border issues

Figures, doesn't it?
(They might ask how those gun control laws passed last year weren't able to stop these shootings, but....)
(They won't ask, though)

This could not have actually happened. The libs crammed a bunch of anti-gun laws down our throats to make us all safe and stuff. It was worth giving up all of our rights to be so safe so that we don’t have this sort of thing going on here. /s

It sounds like somebody may have gotten into somebody else’s stash while the “victims” were “hip hoppin’” around the red rocks.

When I was a Senior in high school I had the privilege of singing at the Red Rocks with my school choir. I remember it like it was yesterday, sort of. (Being old I don’t remember what I had for lunch yesterday, but you know what i mean, don’tcha?) Seriously, it is beautiful amphitheater. Too bad the savages were there to soil it...

Don’t these guys know how to smile. God knows they have become rich helping to format a culture that glorifies violence. Ironic that the look on their faces always matches the look you see on Islamic militants.
