Yep, when they find out it was a moon bat leftist that did the shooting, it's an "accident". And still somehow Palin's fault.

Pelosi will introduce a bill calling for all tragic accidents to be Sarah Palin’s fault.

These same people refused to call 9/11 an attack on America.
It was a “tragedy” to them.

No, it was an ATROCITY: (An appalling or atrocious act, situation, or object, especially an act of unusual or illegal cruelty inflicted by an armed force on civilians or prisoners)

I’ll bet Pelosi doesn’t have the greatest attitude towards Gabrielle Giffords seeins how the latter voted against the former for minority leader (I love that term!); she probably had no real remorse for the shootings.

If she said it, the stupid &^%$# made a slip of the tongue, and meant to say “incident” (which is itself a rather flip way of characterizing the tragedy).

It was an accident, you see, because you had to shoot someone to see who it was, and shootings create a lot of jobs.

What a moron.

I was just looking at the text of 0bama’s speech for another phrase he used and came across his reference to the attack as a “tragedy”.

I like your tagline.

BTW, this “incident” wasn’t a “tragedy”, nor was 9/11.
The proper word is “atrocity”.

Pelosi cannot even remember her own phrase book for Leftists. The Tucson event was a “man caused disaster”.

Democrat Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi referred to the Tuscon shooting as a "tragic accident."

Nancy explained that there is no evidence Jared intended to harm anyone. Jared was simply holding the gun at point-blank range as a joke----he was an innocent young man who had ever harmed anyone in his life (sob).

But his trigger finger accidentally got caught on the gun's firing mechanism, and as he struggled to get his finger out, the magazine kept firing and firing, until all those people were dead and injured.

Nancy has seen plenty of "accidental" deaths in San Franciso---so she oughta know (/snix).

To: MrB

Thank you for clarification regarding the term “tragedy.” This word is the most misused and abused in the English language. When using the word “tragedy,” think Hamlet. He was a basically good man with a character flaw. He debated whether or not he would avenge his father’s death. The operative word here is DEBATE. Do you think the mass murderer in Tucson was debating anything? His brain was so screwed up (most likely by extensive drug use), he was totally morally vacuous, obviously impulsive, etc., that he was incapable of debate. I believe he did what he did without ANY moral reservation.

Thus, the term “tragedy” doesn’t apply to 9/11, Hurricane Katrina, earthquakes, other mass murders, devastating blizzards, etc.

Would anyone else like to add to this discussion?

Is is an ‘accident’ that Sheriff Dipstick had many chances to evaluate his condition and didn't do a damned thing?

Is is an ‘accident’ that Sheriff Dipstick had numerous chances to charge him so his legal access to firearms would have been prohibited, but didn't do a damned thing?

Is is an ‘accident’ that Sheriff Dipstick had the presence of mind to blame talk radio (he didn't listen to) and Sarah Palin for his focus on Rep. Giffords?

Is it an accident that they once again turn the memorial service into a demoncrat campaign rally?

Vote them out of office! Not by accident, but by deliberate, motivated intent. We, the People, do NOT deserve their continued abuse of our nation.

Thanks...I've had it for awhile, but it doesn't seem to be doing any good. :-( Since we have US Marshals, I wonder if the folks using 'marshal law' think it's somehow related to them, and NOT the same as 'martial law', which they may think only applies to military personnel?

I wish we had a chance to have 'tag paragraphs', so I could also mention that's there's no such words as 'alot', 'alright' or 'heighth' and the word 'probably' is not spelled "prolly". And that even though spell check "corrects" definitaly to defiantly, there is a difference between 'defiantly' and 'definitely'. And-

Maybe I need a tag page!

I was trying to plot out how this cover up will develop. I suspect two things.

1. The bullet that killed the judge will not be found or the ballistics will be “inconclusive”.

2. The shooter will suffer a suicide or a complete mental - no active function - breakdown so he can’t talk. I also suspect someone blew their assignment of killing him on the spot. Most likely due to active citizen involvement or bad timing.

Did anyone say that he had reloaded at any time during this?

How did he shoot all those people?

Is it possible some bullets shot at one, entered another?

very odd unanswered questions

I am sure Sheriff Dumbstruck will have the answers very soon. /sarc

The 9 is greatly lacking the power and penetration characteristics to allow more than one victim from a single round.

Thank God the shooter was especially lacking knowledge and back ground and chose the 9. Had he been well schooled, he would have chosen one of the heavier rounds and the death tole would have been much higher.

The greatest atrocity here, was the MSM and the DNC using this incident as a way to score political points with the public. They were also able to launch MaObama’s new campaign slogan “Together We Thrive”. Of course, they want us to believe that Marxist/Fascism replacing Capitalism is what makes a society “thrive”.

They managed to pull it off and make Conservatives look violent and intolerant. The MSM will hammer the public with this theme from here on to the election.

It is very strange also that there seems to be no curiosity about this Federal Judge and the active cases he was ruling on or soon to be ruling on. I think I heard they brought a judge in from California to replace him. Well Golleeee!

I don’t even see much about the Judge mentioned on the right.

Maybe because we just want it all to end, but still. We are in the grips of the most corrupt and lethal administration since Clinton and people are so willing to buy what is said on TV.
