Agreed, but this story is kinda meh. She should've marked it by going to the range and shooting paper targets the look like Loughner.

Why not shoot skydivers wearing Loughner masks?  That would be therapeutic.

Cool. Then she can be the woman that neither bullets nor gravity could kill.

Well, yeah, one would hope that getting shot would give one an appreciation for doing things in a safety-conscious way.

So, is she pretty much back to normal, or what? Has she done any interviews or anything since the incident? Or is she getting Weekend-at-Bernie'd around by her handlers or photo ops and shiat?
 
2014-01-09 12:55:39 AM
It's OK - she went tandem with Terry Schiavo.

He is serving seven life terms plus 140 years in jail.

I sure hope his cell is refrigerated. The smell will become unbearable by the end of 140 years.

/He can cut those life terms short by flat-lining every couple of months.

So, instead of going to the Tucson memorial, where folks paid their respects to the people that were killed, including a small child, she went skydiving?

Show some respect, Gabbie. This didn't just happen to you. If you're wanting to show how grateful you are to be alive, fine. Go skydiving on your birthday. Go skydiving on your wedding anniversary. Don't rub in in the faces of the victims families that you get to do all the things their loved ones can't. Come on, Gabbie. That's obvious to anyone with half a bra-, oh.

Dow Jones and the Temple of Doom: So, is she pretty much back to normal, or what? Has she done any interviews or anything since the incident? Or is she getting Weekend-at-Bernie'd around by her handlers or photo ops and shiat?


My understanding is she's still got speech problems and walking problems; at a guess from the symptoms displayed, she's likely got very slight actual brain injury (i.e./ can still think 100% or near enough), but the parts that control fine muscle control on one side are a bit fried, so she's almost paralysed on that side, like with a stroke victim;

Not explaining that well but you get whatI'm saying.  She's all there up top, but it's a little un-photogenic to watch/hear her speak.  Otherwise I'm pretty sure a) she'd still be in front-line politics and b) she'd probably be contesting the nomination versus Hilary next time around.  Would have loved to have seen that - she was quite the darling of the party for a while, so she'd have been a very interesting candidate.  And of course, two women contesting the nomination for the Dems, and the usual old boring white man for the Reps would have been hilarious to watch...

No, Gabby is still working hard on improving her speech and strengthening her right side. Language comprehension - written and spoken - is just fine. Speech production is slowly improving. Writing is difficult.
Yes, but she rarely makes public appearances.
No, and that's an assholish thing to write.

/Her singing is not too shabby.

Jumping out of a perfectly good airplane requires a "special" type of person. Oopsie should I not have gone there?

There's an old submarine saying. "There are a hell of a lot more airplanes in the water than there are submarines in the air". Hour for hour I'd much rather take my risks underwater in a 2"+ thick steel tube surrounded by things that might kill me in an instant than fly around in something made out of thin aluminum that has a propensity to fall out of the sky on a regular basis. At least my last words won't be "AHHHHHHHHHH! *gasp* AHHHHHHHH! *gasp* AHHHHHHHH!" and that's just the first 100 feet.

\actually, good for her for getting on with her life.

I was there that day after the fact and even though I didn't agree with the majority of what the Congresswoman stood for I was shaken to the core knowing that one of the persons we elected to represent their American people had been targeted and hit, possibly fatally.

That being said I must say that the way her husband and certain interest groups have used that poor woman disgust me. She is a shell of her former self and mentally is farked yet her husband and interest groups have used her and coached her to fill their own goals, politically and or personally be they for financially gain or political gain.

I wish a fiery hell if there is such a thing on those that used and abused this poor woman's tragedy for personal gain, which seems to be the case with anything relating to this poor woman when we hear anything about her.

2014-01-09 01:28:59 AM
Well, I'm surprised she was able to exercise that freedom.  Since nothing good comes out of skydiving, and families with a skydiver in the home are 900 million times more likely to have skydiving kill a family member than homes that are skydiver free, banning it would be the common sense thing to do.

dropdfun: She is a shell of her former self and mentally is farked yet her husband and interest groups have used her and coached her to fill their own goals, politically and or personally be they for financially gain or political gain.

 Eh. She seems more like someone who isn't able to communicate what she is thinking, though she thinks clearly, than someone who is actually mentally out of it. There are questions, behaviors, that are out of place with someone who is actually farked, versus someone who just has a communication error between the brain and the mouth/hands.
/grandma had a brain aneurysm in '94 followed by Alzheimer's before her death last year. Not a doctor, but that's quite a bit of experience with what degrading mental ability looks like.

You're still counting to potato, I see.

Who is profiting from this?
Her husband is retired military. She is from a well-to-do family.
Gabby was my representative. And state senator.
She supports Amendment II. Are you seriously objecting to her position that criminals and the mentally ill should not have ready access to firearms?
