What say you now, libs?!

Sorry, to dissuade a good emotional argument against conservatives, but...

***

"Arizona massacre gunman Jared Loughner's downward spiral may have been touched off by a broken high school romance and fueled by drug use -- but it was not politically motivated, according to his best friend in high school.

Zach Osler, in an interview Wednesday with ABC's "Good Morning America," said: "He did not watch TV. He disliked the news. He didn’t listen to political radio. He didn’t take sides. He wasn’t on the left. He wasn’t on the right."

So is he a right winger, or just plain insane?!

  • Quote from Sweet-a-kins~~~


    Found this on yahoo...totally agree


    Loughner was a nihilist who had libertarian beliefs ( new currency), distrust of the Federal Government ( tea party) and proponent of the English Language in America and 2nd amendment solutions(Republican Party/Tea party). That being said, he is crazy, mentally ill and may or may not have been influenced by the Palin/Angle/Kelly bulls eyes hyperbole. The point some on the right are missing is that the vitriol has to be ratcheted down because unstable people are out there. Sure he read the Communist Manifesto but some of you all have read Shakespeare but that does not make you English

  • Look at ALL the questions pointint to him being a LEFTY.....why did you not address them?


     Maybe she was referring to the Sherriff of Tucson, MSNBC, NBC, CNN, the Clinton's,Paul Kanjorski , Allan Grayson,  Clyburn, New York Times, Newsweek, etc.....  Sooooooo, What Large Media outlet or which Right politician has CONTINUED to equate the shootings in AZ with ANYTHING coming from the left?  MAIN media/politician...  blogs and CM don't count...

  • Having a degree in psychology I can say that most of the time when something like this happens to someone with a mental disorder it does spark a downward spiral. No one really knows why it happens, but its very common. I can believe this 110% then I can he was influenced by what a politician had to say.

  • Who cares about the right or left? How about we care about the lives lost and lives affected by this tragedy.
