What are your thoughts on the attempted assassination of the GOP whip today?


Rep. Steve Scalise Shot in Virginia During Baseball practice this morning - details are still being released. Is this a harbinger of things to come in US politics ? The shooter was armed with a lot of ammunition and was clearly attacking with intent.

    Virginia;no background checks, no licensing. No registration. No permit required for concealed carry of long guns. Open carry long guns and hand guns...and you wonder why a sicko can get an assault rifle and shoot up a baseball field. Duh. Oy. Eeeee

    Exactly. Gun violence is the real terror in america, and we are blocked from doing anything about it. Cant even have a study on the real cost in lives and money that guns cause becauze the nra owns too many politicians. Nra sux!

    As long as the sheeple have money in their bank account,and 4 wheels that roll to and from the shopping mall, they really don't care how they are being used. I grew up on a farm. I'm sure the cows we raised to slaughter didn't feel oppressed either.

    After 2 years of "TRUMPs Clown Show" I wasn't Surprised either ~ The DIFFERENCE between Sen. Sanders & Trump is that Bernie is "SHOUTING" to INCREASE the Minimum Wage, Universal HEALTH-Care 4 ALL, and 2 SAVE Our Planet ~ Trump Opposes the same

    It wasn't a civil war but a war between the states, and Lincoln didn't start it for slave saving but for secession. It would as if Brexit wanted to leave & the EU and France invaded Britain. States were sovereign like countries. Not like now...

    There are no bleeding victims here. The only victim is the American people who are once again being suckered by a ruling elite. No one was shot. This is just another false flag to elicit sympathy.

    Your introduction perfectly defines Manifest Destiny. Americans have justified genocide,slavery,the murder of my people, and the theft of an entire continent for 250 years. The chickens are now coming home to roost. Evil ultimately consumes itself.

    I just had 2 questions summarily removed by hp, yet they allow the left to put questions that are without censorship.

    May be time to leave this super left abuse to democracy.
