Weaver95: tenpoundsofcheese: Weaver95: tenpoundsofcheese:
you didn't answer the question. lame deflection.

why bother? like any good Romney voter, you'll just change your views when its convenient, right? isn't that what Republicans do now?

think about it. prior to the kindergarten massacre, the GOP spent all year vilifying teacher's and trying to destroy their unions. then some idiot goes and shoots 20 kids and we've got Republicans falling all over themselves saying teachers are great and how they've always loved teachers. I'm just wondering how deep the hypocrisy hole goes is all.

wow. you are really phoning it in tonight I live with my mom.

you can't answer a question so you just accuse me of changing my position? that is weak, even for you.

as to your comments on teachers and unions, too bad you are too simple minded to understand the difference. Here, I will try to help you: to the left, corporations are usually evil, but many people who work in them are often down trodden, under-appreciated and underpaid.

Its ok, I didn't really expect you to answer my questions. i'm just pondering a few things is all.


you okay?
you sound tired?
do you need some mental health care treatment?

I answered your first question (should we have better healthcare? yes)
I then asked you a question which you didn't answer and rather tried a lame deflection.

serial_crusher: tenpoundsofcheese: by the way, I don't know about the CT shooter, but the Viriginia shooter was covered by health care through the school which included mental health and suicide counciling.


I suppose you could argue that Cho's problems stemmed from not having proper treatment through most of his life, and that suddenly having it for the 2 years he spent in college wasn't enough to change anything?



yes, you could argue that, but did he not have proper treatment because lack of coverage (0bamacare to the rescue) or because his parents didn't try to have him get help?

The latter, but as my anecdote indicates, it doesn't matter whether his parents tried to have him get help. The second he turned 18, the law gave him the right to make that decision regardless of what his parents had to say about the matter. You know, crazy people are clearly the most qualified to make decisions about their own mental health care....

But yeah, Obamacare wouldn't help at all. It just increases access to health care, but doesn't do anything to force people to take advantage of it. Having the government medicate or commit unstable people preemptively is going to ruffle a lot of feathers, but it might very well be the best solution.

I've been putting my money into interest bearing ammunition accounts for years. Hell, I'd say I'd have about 100k socked away for retirement by now.

Mostly it's for my kids, though. I only need to withdraw two for retirement. (One if my wife passes before I retire.)

twiztedjustin: What a wacko, but sorry Farkers, someone is law abiding until they aren't.


Hence the reason to put sensible restrictions on gun ownership. Because anyone is a potential nut job just waiting to go off.

Weaver95: Gulper Eel: Weaver95: i'm curious - do you think maybe we should upgrade the mental health care system in this country? maybe find a way to make sure people get the help they need BEFORE they go on a shooting rampage...?

You might want to bring that up with the Connecticut state legislature. They are one of six states without an assisted outpatient treatment law.

We don't know enough of the shooter's backstory yet to know if the law would've applied to him, but still...this wasn't a question of resources (mom was getting some major coin in the divorce settlement) or upgrading the system. You can have all the resources in the world but if the law's not there to allow commitment, you the parent are SOL.

oh I know...its just that I'm hearing a LOT of GOP types suddenly changing their opinions on Obamacare over this latest mass shooting.


Obamacare or better mental health care? I'd say it's the latter.
 
2012-12-16 11:02:10 PM  
It's just so refreshing to hear people who just a few days ago would never consider spending more taxpayer money on mental health suddenly be so supportive. And I'm sure they won't complain if their taxes have to go up a bit to do it.

It always seems that the people with the most guns are the folks who you would least trust to use them in trustworthy manner.

It works the same with pit bull owners too.

In both cases, the owners apparently see their possessions as being a replacement for a functioning penis,

I'm actually gonna guess no, otherwise we wouldn't be reading about him getting caught, we'd be reading about another massacre.

Ah, I see the propaganda is conspicuously building. Alleged means absolutely squat. The guy actually did nothing and there's no evidence even circumstantial in the article. This is all part of a gun grab, or junior media whores trying to make a buck.

iq_in_binary: AND the NRA


I left them this year because of their support for Romney, who had a more anti-gun record than Obama. The are just a right wing group and arm of the GOP masquerading as gun rights advocates. Been looking into joining a more legitimate gun rights group.

Yes, because it has to be some massive conspiracy by the media or the government. It couldn't either a) Be an unhinged person, or B) something more mundane, like a wife fabricating the story to get him in trouble. No. it CLEARLY has to be A NEFARIOUS CONSPIRACY.

You're right, threatening to kill as many people as you can shouldn't be a crime. It's free speech after all. So what if he's hoarding / collecting guns. He's probably the minister at his church.

Points for using 'functioning' as opposed to the proverbial 'small'.

Still a silly theory, though.
