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.

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?

Mitch Taylor's Bro: Mitch Taylor's Bro: 21-7-b: she is pretty farking awesome

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

FTFM


There is something wrong with you. At your very core,

I hope she is continuing to make progress in her recovery. It was difficult to see her struggle with her speech the last time I saw her speak. It is very strange to think what it must be like to know exactly what you want to say, but being physically unable to make the words come out.

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.

Jairzinho: I would almost shoot myself to get strapped to that instructor she had.
[news.bbcimg.co.uk image 640x360]


That wasn't her tandem instructor; they are both wearing tandem passenger harnesses.  From another photo, her instructor was a guy - I think I know the guy, but I haven't confirmed.

MooseBayou: Joe Blowme: roddack: This is news worthy why?

Because guns are bad?

I knew Jack Kennedy.  Jack Kennedy was a friend of mine.  You, sir, are no Jack Kennedy.


Huh. I would've taken you for more of a Joe McCarthy type guy.

I am really tired of hearing about this back-bench liberal idiot of a woman.  I am sorry she was hurt.  STFU already.  It was enough to go through the 8-month celebration of the 50th anniversary of JFK's shooting.

"Liberal"? You really are a funny guy. Just not in the funny "ha ha" sense.

Obviously what was done to her was horrible... I'm glad she's recovered...

... but...

People promote weird people to herodom.

Getting shot makes you a hero? If you're a rich white woman of course... and then do rich people sports like jumping out planes makes you more a hero?


Glad she is better... but seriously... she's not a hero... just someone who was unfortunately shot.

GoldSpider: Alphax: GoldSpider: dropdfun: 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.

See also: the Sandy Hook parents.

You know what's more disgusting?  People implying that Gabby Giffords and the Sandy Hook parents aren't doing what they want to be doing.  Now that's demeaning.

People in emotional states are easier to take advantage of. Sorry you didn't get the memo.


Can you prove they've been taken advantage of? What of the parents that have formed their own groups?

What you really hate is that there are real victims of the policies you prefer and they're speaking against your politics.

And you claim they are being taken advantage of, why?  Just to demean the most important goals in their lives?


The fact that they were being flown from political speech to political speech and positioned on stage like props, for starters.

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


Not for the skydivers.
