So you link to TMZ???
 
2012-09-06 11:18:29 PM
True courage in the face of adversity...Gabby Giffords leads the DNC in the Pledge of Allegiance.... a true American heroine and an inspiration to all us that are disabled.
 
2012-09-06 11:41:36 PM
TMZ left out the 10 minute standing ovation.
 
2012-09-06 11:48:22 PM
We love you Gabby.

I shudder to think what kind of hate is being spewed about this in Freeperville.

I ♥ Gabby

Looks like they're using her to shiat all over the Democratic Party and President Obama (warning: Freeper link)

It's unbelievable to think that she was shot in the head. It shows what is possible in terms of rehabilitation.
 
2012-09-07 12:29:31 AM
Very touching. She radiates something I don't have the words for but it affected me.
 
2012-09-07 12:33:31 AM
F*ck you Jerrod Laughner.

fark policies that don't invest in mental health and prevent the mentally ill from getting guns

Laughner is an incredibly insane individual. If society could have kept him from getting guns, nobody would have gotten hurt. Or maybe less people would have been hurt. He might have been caught jerking off in a city bus or possibly stabbing someone.

Yeah, but that isn't FREEDOM so we need to prove how free we are by letting him buy guns.

From that link:
Gabby always was a tool for the Party. I live in her district, and I don't miss her. You see, I remember her lies, her arrogance, her refusal to meet with constituents (unless they had money)...I remember protesting with a great many others outside her office to try to get her to hold meetings...no, I don't miss her. She was always a Democrat first and American second...or maybe third or fourth.

Wow. Just.... Wow.

yeah, but if you add a 'mental health' rule to gun purchases, the Republicans will assume you're calling them all crazy. Or that it's a conspiracy to take all their guns away, which...is totally crazy. Or that you're trying to say that gun ownership is crazy...which is kinda crazy.

hmm. this is like...dividing by zero only you're doing it with social policy and not mathematics.

I know that is a freeper, but that whole quote is bullshiat, not just the part you bolded. She was a pretty good, middle of the road representative for all of us. And in another state she could have been a Republican. Stupid freepers.

its not that the freepers are 'stupid'. they really aren't dumb. within certain narrowly defined parameters they're rather intelligent. the problem isn't lack of intelligence...it's that they think in very rigid terms and are extremely xenophobic. and they're afraid of damn near everything: gays, pagans, muslims, the SCA, cannabis, Obama, communism, socialism, affordable health care. it's difficult to move past your self imposed limits when you spend most of your time drowning in your fears.

So they're high RWA individuals.

At politics that is.

The funny part is, the freeper imlies that Giffords would brush aside anyone who didn't have money, but that same freeper will cast a ballot in November for Romney, a guy who thinks living off of Daddy's stock gifts is roughing it.

It is kind of annoying they're doing this. It's very much like the whole flag pin bullsh*t--proving to the predominate right wing who controls this country that they can fall in line when needed.

You do define them very well, they are wearing blinders to what they don't like. That said, in that thread, I was surprised by the compassion a few of them had.

Maybe. The main problem with the bolded part about her refusing to meet with constituents is that they've apparently forgotten HOW SHE GOT SHOT IN THE FIRST PLACE. It's willful ignorance at best.
 
2012-09-07 02:39:52 AM
So, it's not ok to make broad brush stroke generalizations about others (calling all gays pedos, stating that all women belong in the kitchen, etc), but it's perfectly fine to lump an entire group of people together and call them freepers?

This is why I don't call myself a member of any party. It's bullshiat like that that ends up stifling discussion and fostering ignorance. It's hypocritical. Guess what? You're the embodiment of the very thing you claim to hate.
 
2012-09-07 02:41:56 AM
I don't know.. did just wake up one day crazy or did he slowly degrade over time?

Was there a moment when he knew he had problems but couldn't afford to get help?

Hate = Fear + Attitude

Sounds about right for Freeperville, because thinking takes effort.

Just watching her walk out made my eyes sting.

I know they're freepers, the seedy underbelly of the internets, but let's be accurate. Nobody's excited for Romney except his wife. They just hate Obama.

Of course she was meeting with constituents when she was shot.

coco ebert: It's unbelievable to think that she was shot in the head. It shows what is possible in terms of rehabilitation.


My sister had a subdural hematoma (bruising/bleeding on the brain) about a year before Giffords was shot. It is really amazing how far medical science has come in terms of rehabilitation for severely brain injured people; my sister doesn't remember the week of ICU (or my presence there ~10 hours a day) or the first 4-5 weeks of the rehab hospital, but she can today get back to teaching college high-level English courses, albeit with more difficulty than she used to have. Again I say: amazing.

Also, wear your god-damn bike helmets. She WAS wearing one and still got hurt that badly.

Okay, in all seriousness, why the hell is she so important just because she got shot AND happens to be a politician? I'm taking this opportunity to honor the IGNORED victims who didn't have the luxury of being famous when attacked.

RIP to the true victims:

Christina Taylor Green, 9

Dorothy "Dot" Morris, 76

John Roll, 63

Phyllis Schneck, 79

Dorwan Stoddard, 76,

Gabriel "Gabe" Zimmerman, 30

Now please shut up, Giffords. I really don't care how you were as a politician before, using tragedy as a political stepping stone is never okay.

Tell you what, go find a nutjob to shoot you, go through the same rehab and recovery she did, and after, or, more likely, if, you finish, you feel free to go ahead and badmouth her after that.

I don't think it's appropriate to exhume the dead, and display them at political events. Assuming that you're a republican, you may elect register your disagreement with this, in hologram if you like.

You're welcome to provide evidence that any of her actions is akin to "using tragedy as a stepping stone, " else you might just take your own advice. In fact, why don't you? You don't have anything to share here.
