    Sly admitted that he was busy, and could have chosen his words better. This has been addressed.

    It must be nice for them to have a job that pays them for the rest of their life and that you don't actually have to do anything to keep your job.

    That's an outrageous lie and a personal insult to all Republicans.

    Nobody can stop a few nuts from saying they are Republicans, but the simple fact is the Republican Party does not welcome them, nobody of either party that I know of welcomes them and there is really nothing in the Republican Party Platform that they support other than the enforcement of the written laws of our land.

    They are political in nature. They are hateful, racist losers who inhabit both parties fairly equally. It is a fact that the Democratic Party was and is still to this day founded in racism, an enabler of racism and a proponent of racism through pretty much their entire freedom-killing platform.

    The good news is they're a miniscule speck of our population and completely powerless. Ignore them and they'll go away as they did decades ago.

    Stop being a pawn.

    An article about the Dayton Ohio shooter:

    https://heavy.com/news/2019/08/connor-betts-twitter-politics-social-media/

    I cannot confirm or deny the authenticity of the information within the article. It is up to you to decide for yourself.

    Assuming he was a Leftist, I still don't blame politicians for his behavior. He was a nutcase, and there is zero justification or rhetoric necessary to explain his actions.

    Sometimes, crazy is just crazy.

    "In the past 48hrs, the USA horrifically lost 34 people to mass shootings.
    On average, across any 48hrs, we also lose… 500 to Medical errors 300 to the Flu 250 to Suicide 200 to Car Accidents 40 to Homicide via Handgun Often our emotions respond more to spectacle than to data."

    Looks like the target was his sister and black people because she was dating a black guy.

    I also thought I saw he was a satan worshiping democrat. Is that incorrect?

    Yes.

    He was a racist, a misogynist, and a murdering Democrat.

    Satan is not a real thing.

    Feel better now?

    His words were perfectly descriptive of his preferred modding criteria, an accurate reflection of how this forum is controlled and prodded toward racism and division.

    Censorship is the garden of evil.

    You sound exactly like the Trumpers on Twitter right now: deflect and find a way to divert blame to the "libtards." :biglaugh:

    Trump has been fanning the flames of racism and now that a Trumpanzee used his words as ammo to carry out his attack on "Hispanic invaders" -- it's apparently time to stop pointing fingers and come together :crazy:

    Trump is not only a pedophile, he's a blatant racist.

    Facts.

    I haven't called any poster a white supremacist or a racist here. I spoke of the shooters and only of the shooters. Slander.

    Over the years there have been extremist at the left and right and both should not be tolerated at all.
    One blows up Army recruiting centers and the other abortion clinics, but WRONG and terrorism.
    I also agree that both parties better address their own party extremist and cut them zero slack.
    I also think the media TV and Social have a huge responsibility to calm things down when possible and not give ANY extremist group a band wagon.

    Many times in many threads you group all Trump supporters as if they were all incapable of varied opinions and label them white supremacists, in direct replies to posters you know are Trump supporters.

    It's cowardly, transparent and slanderous.

    Others who repeatedly do it are Cupwizer and Fez Forthright.

    More slander and insults

    My posts in this thread were about the shooters. I even clarified such.

    Links to other threads were I have supposedly called posters white supremacists?

    Golly!

    GOPers sure get their bloomers all in a bunch when they get a taste of their own medicine.

    And it's MR. Fez Forthright to you.

    Grammatically speaking, it would refer to a mass of people who were shooting along with each other, say target shooting at a range as about 500,000 people harmlessly do each day.

    "Shooting" is an incorrect word in the instance of any murder, mis-used deliberately to erase the blame from the human who has murdered in order to convince simpletons that inanimate objects are the reason people's lives have been taken.

    As far as defining a mass murder, I wouldn't.

    Anyone who murders anyone is a murderer and deserves to be put to death.

    I have no interest in keeping some macabre scorecard for them, or rank them as if this was sport.

    I don't live in a city. That's my mailing address.

    I live in rural Deschutes County surrounded by US National Forests in every direction, and my back yard is over 3 acres with 500' of riverfront, a small island, a peninsula across the river, and a gorgeous view of Paulina Peak.

    Born and raised in the working class section of Lake Oswego, moved to a hispanic neighborhood in North Hollywood for a year of music school.

    Then I lived in SE PDX a few years out of financial necessity when I was a young newlywed, first in the historic lesbian neighborhood around 23rd on Madison, then around 25th on Division.

    But somehow the racism, militant lesbians and runaway Crips and Bloods gang crime of the late 70's was not enough allure to hold me there.

    Moved to Milwaukie for 23 years and raised my kids there. Nice town, very diverse community, unfortunate that Portland swallowed it whole.

    Kids grew up, there was no joy in watching the perpetual decay and crime and corruption and mostly the nonstop noise and choking air pollution so we moved here in 2002 without job prospects and started over, borrowing on my paid off Xterra for living expenses until we found jobs.

    Was tough at first, we survived, now we thrive here in Beautiful Central Oregon.

    It's a pretty big bubble I guess. :dunno:

    I'm jealous. I would love to live out there.

    But just to be safe, I'm moving to Idaho. They just passed the biggest gun rights agenda in recent memory, surpassing Arizona as the most gun-friendly state in the country. It's beautiful, it's free, and there's not nearly as many crazies as this place. I'm heading there, hopefully within the next two years. I'm sick of the weather here, sick of the traffic, sick of the politics, sick of the homeless everywhere, and sick of the people. I've lived here 24 years....can't do it anymore.

    No one specifically called anyone here a racist.

    The one's with a guilty conscious put that label on themselves.
