|Zach, how did we go from civility to making it difficult for visitors to get in the statehouse? Was there discussion about increasing security?|

|I don't think Zack is in question. It appears that any assumed difficulty is voiced by Senator Paul. My reaction to Sen. Paul's statement was that he wants to take the risk and in my mind, he wishes to remain part of the problem rather than working toward a solution. Instead of taking precaution, he is simply saying why bother, it won't work. In my opinion, his statement is obtuse.|

|If we had continued to support long term psychiatric facilities than this tragedy may have been prevented. Your suggestion seems much like the suggestion that we punish the students because the teacher maybe cheating.|

|“We don’t know why that young man did what he did. We don’t know if political rhetoric had anything to do with it,” Simpson said. |
This statement brings up 2 points.
1. Ms. Simpson says we do not know why this fool killed people. That is mistaken. We do. He is brimming in evil. That evil has consumed him with hate. His evil little mind was allowed to grow and fester to the point of an extremely heinous act.
2. Ms. Simpson says this may be due to political rhetoric. Mistaken again. For reference please see response to point #1.

|The bottom line is that people need to act with civility. Unless of course, you really do want a radical shift in American politics where we just kill people we disagree with?|
We've made politics too much of a contact sport where one side will never agree with the other side and people elect the most radical on each side and expect something productive to come out of it. Never going to happen. Ever.
We live in interesting times and the electorate is getting dumber and dumber and the politicans love it. They know that all they have to do is yell, Liberal or Right winger and that's pretty much it. No other explanation needed.
When events like this happen, people are quick to try to figure it out and of course place blame - but, it could just be the case that this kid was nuts. I don't know, and I really don't have the PHD to draw the conclusion. The best thing to do would be to realize that we have a beautiful working government based on laws and designed by brilliant men who were mostly God fearing and passionate about an idea of a place where people could debate ideas and come up with solutions.
We simply don't do that now. Too much special interests, too much ignorance and too much rhetoric - I'm not sure there is an answer here, but if this is where we're going it doesn't seem like a good outcome to me.

|Talk about dumber and dumber. It does not take a PHD to figure out that when an idiot opens fire on a crowd killing and injuring as many is possible that the perpetrator is nuts. The dumb is to think that it takes a PHD to figure out this idiot was cuckoo for cocoa puffs.|

|Just to bring some perspective to this.|
While I'm not taking away the tragedy the families experienced in Arizona with the lose of their loved ones I do feel it's important to know that 19 being shot and 6 being killed isn't even a drop in the bucket compared to the shooting in the poor neighborhoods around the country each day of the year by gang terror. Yes even young children.
The only difference is they aren't wealthy like the politicians and their families which get all the news and presidential speeches and several days of around the clock news coverage. No, it's no big deal to most that poor children are being killed by the groves around our country and nobody reports on it.
Kind of strange isn't it because it's the poor that Jesus said will inherit the Kingdom of heaven. It's the poor who are blessed and how hard it will be for a rich man to get into the Kingdom. Talk about a deceitful Illusion we're in.

OMG! Laughing my butt off. I miss that commercial. Remember the commercials for Count Chocula, BooBerry, Frankenberry and Fruity Pebbles? Do they still make those cereals?
