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.

Crazy TPers for Mitt!
This one (@therightsarah, "Sarah is Fed Up!") describes herself as "Just a girl who's fed up with the left's war on American Exceptionalism. Bitter clinger 'til the end. #Resist44 #NObama2012 #Mitt2012".
I sent her this link explaining in great detail how weak Mitt is on immig.:
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.

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?

I'm not saying that this DailyKos piece (DailyKos post: http://peekURL.com/zxZqGug ) is a work of fiction, but the curious punctuation above tends to give me that impression. The long quote above was transcribed from a slip of paper, but you'd think that whoever wrote it would express themselves without requiring the author's strange habit of using dashes.
The long quote above also doesn't exactly read like it comes from highschooler, but was written by an adult dumbing down their writing style.

YiddishSteel (Lawrence Kent) is yet another example of how TPers have serious issues, as I'll explain below.
YiddishSteel tweeted that the "Koch Brothers are Heros" [sic] and I responded by pointing out just two of the reasons to oppose them (see above).
One would think that TPers would be smart enough not to be fanboys for someone who funds the ACLU and who funds groups that support massive/illegal immig., yet that's not the case.
Instead of asking for more information or trying a defense of the Kochs, YiddishSteel responded in typical TPer fashion: with a picture of a "Douche" sticker in the form of the Obama logo.
So, we've got a TPer calling me a "douche" for pointing out facts. And, the TPer replies as he's been trained to do: falsely assume that anyone who opposes the Kochs or the TP movement must be an Obama fan. I'm just surprised YiddishSteel didn't call me a COMMIE.
You can read the facts about YiddishSteel's "heroes" funding the ACLU and much more here:
The TPers - supposed opponents of COMMIES - are useful idiots for someone who funds a group started by a COMMIE. How dumb is that?
To find out even more ways the TPers help their supposed opponents, see my extensive coverage of them here:
Note that Yiddish Steel is using the same dishonest technique that so many other TPers have used I had to give it a name:
Also, you can read my reasons not to vote for O from October 2008 here:
If the TPer types had simply promoted that, O might not be president now.
Also, read how I tried to ask O a question in Feb 2007 here:
The TPers aren't capable of developing, asking or even helping others ask things like that.

I wasn't signed in and was using a fresh browser (no cache/no cookies), and I'd never heard of her before, but somehow - through the magic of Twitter's awesome technology - I'm following her (and at least one other person). Possible security issue?

Do me a favor and take a look at this page:
DCGere is just one more example in a very long series of examples of a wider problem: TPers just aren't aware of how things work, can't figure things out, and reject anything that doesn't agree with them 100%.
TPers aren't aware of the fact that the only reason there's illegal immig. in the first place is because of those fans mentioned in my tweet (and listed at the link above). They aren't aware of how those fans use statements like Cain's to help achieve their goals.
This all boils down to a failure of leadership. R/w leaders find it serves their ends to rouse the rabble rather than educating them and encouraging them to do things that are helpful to the U.S.
