Mass shootings in general aren't just a problem with "gun culture", they're an indicator of much deeper cultural problems. Contributing factors include: self-centeredness/selfishness (see libertarians, teaparty, and now GOP), promotion of violence (see Hollywood and FPS games), and yahooism in general (see teaparty). That doesn't mean that a specific mass shooting is political motivated, just that the mindset of some political groups degrades society and that makes mass shootings more likely.

A pro-Ryan talking point is that his plan won't affect his standing in FL because those who are currently seniors won't be affected by his plan. All Dems need to do is point out to those seniors how their grandkids would be negatively affected by Ryan's plan.
What "therightsarah" describes as "leftist BS" could actually help her candidate beat Obama. And most would consider my post much more "rightwing" than Mitt. It's definitely more "rightwing" that TP darlings like MarcoRubio and leaders like Armey or Koch.
Instead of being smart enough to realize that and help move Mitt into a more popular (and better) position, all @therightsarah can do is dismiss and smear.
Those in the general TP sphere aren't capable of showing anyone how pols are wrong, and have emotional issues that prevent them from helping those who can.

John Sheehan (dogstar7) supports lowering wages for struggling American workers and keeping some struggling potential college students from attending school. He supports this anti-American bill that O enacted recently:
John Sheehan is on Twitter at dogstar7tweets and on Youtube at dogstar7. His videos are about Chicago, Illinois, music, NATO protests, unions, and other topics. It's not known whether he's affiliated with the Occupy Wall Street, OWS, or Occupy Chicago movements.
Ed Shahzade of Next Instinct has a problem: keep reading the description and I'll explain.
I'd never heard of Ed Shahzade (@Ed) before, but earlier today in the course of searching Twitter I saw that he was having a conversation with user @kgilnack about immigration, specifically relating to MA gov. Patrick.
Since that's something I know quite a bit about, I tweeted them the first tweet below. Note that I'm on Ed Shahzarde's side of this: I was trying to help him out in his debate with @kgilnack. @kgilnack responded, I responded back and included @Ed in the conversation once again to help him out.
In exchange, I get the first tweet in the graphic. If @Ed had handled this a different way, would you be reading this? All Ed Shahzade had to do was say he wasn't interested in my attempts to help him out. Instead, he acts like a thug. Do you want someone like that representing your company?
