If you don’t think your government is capable of staging these things to achieve a particular result, you’re sadly deluded.
Good points. What a mess though. Liberals are celebrating.
"It has been confirmed that the active shooter was shot and killed at the Cinergy in Odessa."
Have you got a link to the twitter video?
Ugh. I hate the politics of it. Now the hurricane will be an after thought and this will be the main story Sunday morning into next week. We never catch a break.
He was driving and shooting and it’s kind of hard to be ready for something like that.
Any description of shooter yet?
Not as easy as many (here) think. Especially in the situation that you’ve described.
Thanks for that link!
Do you have any links to this info?
I had my suspicions for many years, then making contact with and having hours on end of personal discussions with Kurt Haskell convinced me for sure.
Any sane person knows the world has lost it’s founding... lost it’s footing... lost it’s morality, and the greed of the entertainment industry, has made games, movies and ways, that are from the pits and everyone with any sense knows it has gone so far wrong, this is not surprising....
AND when women stood and cheered for the right to kill their babies at birth... it’s called MURDER!!... it tells us all how far in that pit this country has sunk...
IT”S NOT GUNS!! it’s the dark brooding teaching that life has no meaning and everything surrounds you... yes, it’s sick! but it ain’t guns!
The advisers of the youth are lost and confused... don’t know what is right and what is wrong... crazy as the world has become... just like “they think taking all the guns will solve it..” and not admit the stuff they put out for the youth is destructive .. man, crazy isn’t even a word strong enough .
Scary situation. Prayers up.
Awww, pooor widdle baby got told no one cares about what she cares about and now has a boo-boo.
Society has people like to thank for people being out of control. They were never raised with any discipline and are now prone to childish outbursts.
And this forum thinks CodeToad is an A-OK poster? Making fun of someone who cares about a mass shooting?
Sorry, I don't get that. Maybe you see some kind of big difference between a mom and her kids getting shot in Texas and a mom and her kids getting shot in Chicago. I am sure their families, friends, and neighbors are just as bereaved and upset in Chicago as they are in Texas.
Now it is possible that cynical leftists trying to disarm the American public think mass killings of white people, children, Hispanics or other groups will advance their cause, so they are reported and treated differently. And it is likely that the perpetrators of many of these mass shootings are doing so for their own twisted political reasons. We know that because they tell us so.
Of course the government is capable of it, but they dont need to do it because there are so many disturbed folk running around now.
This means theres a social problem, which is that if you live in a society where youre a white man and white men are attacked and ridiculed constantly, where there are none of the former emotional or social connections, where the only standard of success for men seems to be how many women they can trash - and if youre a woman, how many men you can trash and how many abortions you can have - the more fragile of them are going to run off the rails. No government conspiracy needed.
I’ve been reading the reports and these people don’t sound like your ordinary criminals but people who are on a mission. Your ordinary perps don’t ride around shooting at everyone on the street. Look for an early obfuscation by law enforcement. Give it a few days to mature. In the meantime the usual suspects will be pushing for total gun confiscation and gulags for offenders. That’s us people.
