So this is supposed to be a statement about how there is no outrage about Obama's killing of Terrorists?
So is he comparing Obama to the Colorado Shooter?
Or
Is he comparing the vicitims in Colorado to terrorists?

Can we get a clarification on which farking retarded analogy he is attempting to draw here?

Neeek: Uncle Tractor: starsrift: Not only did Obama NOT promise to pull out of Afghanistan, he was awarded the Nobel in Oct 2009; he'd basically just managed to take office and move in, by that point; he hadn't killed thousands yet.

As a norwegian .. I actually had to check the calendar to see whether it was april first when I hear Obama had been awarded the NPP. I still don't understand why. The best theory I can come up with is that the committee was happy that the US had elected a non-republican president ...

... in which case it would have been better to give the award to the US voters in general for "turning away from the destructive path they've been on" or some such thing, and let Obama pick it up on behalf of said voters.

Ah well. The NPP is a hit or miss thing. Always has been, always will be.

I don't think Obama thought he should have gotten the Nobel Peace Prize. It's one of those things that's just weird.


I think Obama got the Nobel Peace Prize for not being Bush, Cheney, McCain, or Palin. If you covered your ears you didn't hear Cheney praising Obama's national security team before Obama took office. A couple years later, Cheney said Obama had learned Bush and Cheney's policies were correct.

shotglasss: LordJiro: shotglasss: Hobodeluxe: if this guy hadn't been able to get these guns because he was mental or if he hadn't been able to purchase gas grenades and 100 round clips for his assault rifle things might have turned out different. thanks NRA for making sure a thorough background check with a psych evaluation and proper waiting period isn't required. and that anyone with a credit card can get damn near anything they want ,as much as they want.

You forgot to thank the theater that disarmed everyone at the door, making everyone in there a target for a nutcase.

If someone HAD fired back, it would've been ineffective at best, unless they just HAPPENED to bring a gun loaded with rounds that could pierce body armor. That's if they could even hit the guy in the dark, tear-gas filled theater. At worst (And most likely), a crossfire would have caused even more casualties.

In short, real life isn't an action movie, dipshiat. Even in a movie theater.

Thanks for proving your ignorance/fear of guns, dipshiat. As soon as this guy realized he was being shot at, he would have rabbited out the door, because he obviously was NOT on a suicide mission. And being hit by a bullet through body armor is like being hit with a large hammer. It will knock the crap out of you. It's not like a movie where a little piece of fabric pops off but the shooter just keeps on walking.


yes the solution is always MOAR GUNS!!! Then when the cops rush in when hearing the shots they shoot you because they don't know wtf is going on and you're just a guy in a theater shooting his weapon.

So if not for this billboard Obama would have had a shot at Idaho? This story deserves about fifteen minutes of attention but once again, what difference does it make in the larger scheme of things? Idaho is one of those states that will go for Romney even if it comes out that he's providing aborted fetuses for his wife to suck the stem cells out of and his plans to take the oath of office on the Book of Mormon (incidentally...).

We get it, repubs. You've nailed down the vote of every racist, 1 percenter and credulous dolt in the country. Fortunately for the rest of us, that is not enough to win you the presidency. How will you reach out to the ten percent of the country that is repelled by blatant racism, unhappy with Obama's performance but unconvinced by your vague assurances that Romney's experience as a vulture capitalist will turn the country around? So far I've seen a great deal of pandering--unnecessary pandering, ultimately counterproductive pandering--to your base but nothing at all substantive to support your claims of a superior economic program. Ironically, Romney could simply tell the truth: "When I am elected I will call all my obscenely wealthy friends and tell them to start hiring again--just as I asked them to stop hiring in order to undercut Obama's economic recovery-- and they will do so, instantly reversing the decline in the economy."

That would work.

That is, if the guy carrying a concealed gun shoots the shooters accurately and doesn't hit an innocent bystander in the process. Which in a dark and tear gas filled movie theater is very low.

You're right, this isn't like the movies where some average joe can shoot someone in a dark and teargas filled movie theater dead on. You're just going to put people's lives in even more risk as the crowd won't be able to tell who is the actual shooter and who is trying to kill the shooter.

beta_plus: doyner: Remember when Obama invaded Iraq and killed all those people?

Me either.

Remember when Bush bombed Libya to help British Petroleum by allowing the genocide of black sub-saharan libyans?

Me neither.


Do you remember when all the Republicans were crying about how we weren't doing anything in Libya, and then they complained when we started doing something about Libya, and then they complained about how we weren't doing enough in Libya, and then they complained about how we weren't putting boots on the ground in Libya?

I do.

Not that I'm an advocate for the opposite, but in the very first thread on the shooting, a couple farkers said it was a popular place for military folks - even one or two of the folks that got killed were military. So 'untrained' is probably the wrong adjective.

This story deserves about fifteen minutes of attention but once again, what difference does it make in the larger scheme of things? Idaho is one of those states that will go for Romney even if it comes out that he's providing aborted fetuses for his wife to suck the stem cells out of and his plans to take the oath of office on the Book of Mormon (incidentally...).

We get it, repubs. You've nailed down the vote of every racist, 1 percenter and credulous dolt in the country. Fortunately for the rest of us, that is not enough to win you the presidency. How will you reach out to the ten percent of the country that is repelled by blatant racism, unhappy with Obama's performance but unconvinced by your vague assurances that Romney's experience as a vulture capitalist will turn the country around? So far I've seen a great deal of pandering--unnecessary pandering, ultimately counterproductive pandering--to your base but nothing at all substantive to support your claims of a superior economic program. Ironically, Romney could simply tell the truth: "When I am elected I will call all my obscenely wealthy friends and tell them to start hiring again--just as I asked them to stop hiring in order to undercut Obama's economic recovery-- and they will do so, instantly reversing the decline in the economy."

War is hell, asshole.


So why didn't you put something under Obama like "Afgan war 1000+ dead"?

Because he knew linking The Afghan war as one of Obama's "policies" would make sane people think of the last Republican President, not Obama.

Ishkur: "We're all outraged over that killing in Aurora, Colo., but we're not outraged over the boys killed in Afghanistan," Clements explained to the paper

So when Bush waged war

based on lies killing 4000+ Americans and costing over one trillion dollars, that was alright. But when Obama wages war (continuing the same policies started by Bush) using drones that cost hundreds of billions of dollars less with no loss of American lives, that makes him comparable to a mass shooter.

Gotcha.

It has nothing to do with being black. How about the number of Mexicans killed as a result of our ATF exporting guns. How about the number of people killed by our illegal war in Afghanistan.


"Illegal war in Afghanistan?" Are you farking kidding me? Clowns like you were salivating for Bush to get us involved in as many foreign wars as possible, but now that a Democrat is president, those wars are suddenly illegal?

If you supported it then, which i guarantee you did, then you had better support it now. Otherwise, you'd be admitting that all of you shills are just treaherous retards who put their party in front of their country.

Obama shouldn't have a "peace prize", especially considering we've been involved in an unnecessary war for his entire presidency. As commander in chief of the military, all he has to do is bring everyone home. Before ppl get pissed at that: Bush sucked just as bad.

So he should have just pulled everyone out all at once, and make an already-unstable region collapse completely, while leaving a LOT of people over there VERY pissed at America?

Can't see why he wouldn't do something like that. Nope.


Yes. No, it wouldn't have "collapsed". Leaving would make them pissed at America? Consider yourself in their shoes. How would you feel about your parents moving back in with you?

yeah because what you want in a dark theater full of teargas and panicked people running around is untrained people shooting at muzzle flashes.

That would have been nice, but not very likely. What's more likely is that additional guns in the theater would have led to additional death and injury.

Easy access to guns directly lead to these guns. Slightly more stringent gun controls could have prevented the deaths and injury of all these people IMHO.

Valid argument to make but I'm not sure. He was able to get these guns in Denver with just a simple background check which consisted of nothing more than a speeding ticket. The fact he was a mental nutcase didn't come out to anyone until after the shooting.

I think the fact he purchased thousands of rounds of ammo should've sent a red flag to someone at the online retailer he bought them from.

There needs to be something done in that regard. I mean the government keeps track of how much cold medicine I buy but doesn't keep track of how much ammo I buy?

The batman movie shooter was suppose to be named Mohammed damn it. So many right wing fear mongers had their chicken little routines all warmed up and ready to go when they had their hopes dashed. To them the real crime was that they missed an opportunity to hate on Muslims again.

EnviroDude: It's politics and is its fair.


I'll remember this the next time you defend Republicans biatching and moaning about being called out as hypocrites.

As a matter of fact: Welcome to my favorites list and I'll add that same exact quote as my comment.

I support rights to buy standard hunting rifles and ammo. Anything else should require a proof of sanity not just a database check.

Anyways, it should be Conservatives that come up with a solution to keep guns out of the hands of mentally ill. Maybe they would at least support more Federal funding towards mental health programs.

EnviroDude: cman: Well, duh.

The billboard compares the President to a mass murderer, which does nothing but portray the typical stereotypes of black men being monsters. All this right-winged fool is doing is just spreading his bigotry

It has nothing to do with being black. How about the number of Mexicans killed as a result of our ATF exporting guns. How about the number of people killed by our illegal war in Afghanistan.


The Mexican drug cartel would never have had any guns without the ATF. They would have had to use water guns to carry out its crimes. How exactly is the war in Afghanistan illegal?

Wake up, you're dreaming.

The Aurora shooting was a boon to republicans. Gun rights supporters were excited just anticipating a push for stronger gun controls. Why would the GOP support anything that might reduce this sort of random base stimulation?
