Jared Laughner's Facebook link?

My sympathies go out for Jared Laughner. I'm sorry they damaged you enough to take this action and I'm sorry you don't have a president asking everybody on the planet to feel sorry for you while she does.

This is how they control judgement and sympathy. Asking everybody to take the side of those in charge and gang up against those who oppose them. If you feel sorry about doing this examine the feelings closely. It's likely just them being sorry you did it and stuffing down your emotional brain in an attempt to confuse you.

It doesn't matter if it's the right thing to do or the wrong thing to do. All that matters is people know and see understand how it works.

I think you're correct. How is it this fellow was mentally and emotionally damaged to the point of taking this action?

Fuck taking any pills, take it as it comes and stop whingeing

Well I see your point. Yes. But that does still doesn't make my message any less clear. And that still doesn't make the switchover from time based life here to no time any less invalid from a logical perspective. And using english or universal dream language or hell popping open a huge rote or thought ball on someone who decides to come by for a visit that consists of simply experiences and reactions to experiences that comes from working and being worked by other clairsentients.

I mean sure it can all be bullshit. But until I start putting huge tittied actresses in nightgowns and writing bullcrap stories that all end well and are designed to fit in 40 minutes of stupid fucking ghost whisperer. I think I can maintain a grip on reality.

But thanks for the advice. I'm not really worried about going crazy. I have very strong logic and good enough perception to know when I'm going down crazy road to nowhere.

Im not saying you are crazy dude, i am just saying that you are jumping in at the deep end, the wrong end. You are considering how the media will seek to exploit this to control you emotionally etc, that’s just wrong and its not doing you any favours.

Its like this, if you don’t know what to feel for yourself, you will be pumped full of shit from all quarters, mainstream or otherwise. The media have to construct some kind of narrative around the events to actually get the story across, to have an impact on its viewers, and hopefully to illustrate the seriousness of the event.

In doing this they will use professional discretion to word the reporting with an emphasis on the victim usually, in situations like this…a perfectly normal and understandable thing to do- in this case, the victim that took a point-blank bullet in the head, the upstanding citizen and democrat with a fucking astronaut husband and cute little children perhaps, and all the other innocent dead and wounded men, women and children. Don’t you think it would be a little odd if the media automatically ignored all the dead and wounded and focused they’re efforts in trying to cultivate sympathy for the deranged schizophrenic killer? Would you think that’s normal?

What will happen is that later on the media will probably do some investigative pieces on the killers background, maybe a documentary or two, some kind of analysis with a selection of interviewed experts and psychologists, and do their best to give a decent answer as to what was driving this particular nut at the time. In the end, it probably wont be all that sympathetic. He doesn’t deserve much sympathy anyway, he deserves treatment if anything, he’s a sick fuck and probably would have killed regardless of his circumstances…he just couldn’t handle this world it and decided to execute other humans. Sorry dude, but some people just get it very wrong, he was one.

In my opinion, you and growing number of people like you get angry because you actually depend on the media to tell you how to feel, whether its outrage or sympathy, and sometimes you don’t like what they put across, so you stamp your feet and claim that they are trying to manipulate you into believing this and that. The media put opinions “out there“, that’s what they do, its they’re bread and butter and how they have always made they’re money. If you feel they’re opinions are too much, don’t read and don’t watch. As for forming opinions solely on the premise that the TV and press is trying to control your emotions and therefore make you do things you don’t want to do- fuck man, as I said, you should probably go easy on the whole mind-controling elites gibberish.

Ya I wonder if there is ever any point in your writing or listening to me about how you are trying to conform what I say or how I say it and it's just not working yet you continue accusing me of being too weakminded and unable to protect or defend my chosen expression form.

And it's cute that you think you control him getting what he deserves or deciding on what he deserves. All that is being controlled by a few people. You're not one of them and you'll never be one of them. And it's not your mind. You are simply hosting in an alien body. It even acts and reacts on it's own. And if you try to control it too much they'll let you, if you are evil and go along with the plan of domination. If you try to fight your host body too much and you're not on the approved action jackson list they'll make you the equivalant of a fainting goat. Freeze you when you need to take action. This is called an atagonistic reaction to the sympathetic nervous system.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=we9_CdNPuJg

So you see i'm not really out there in lala land ungrounded and divorced from all reality. I'm not at all worried about people controlling my emotions. I'm capable of very careful very controlled emotional expression. Not to avoid the wrath of idiots or to deceive. But as a precise tool of communication that necessarily comes from developing clairsentient communication abilities. And there really is no way to understand anything until you can jump into the deep end and get all the way to bottom of something. So thanks for diving with me. You're a decent guy. I'm here for the really nasty fucks.

People around the shy, reclusive Loughner tell a variety of news outlets that he seems to have exhibited an escalating level of disruptive and disturbing behavior that reportedly forced him to leave a local college.

Loughner, the sheriff said, has made threats to kill before. Giffords — whom he may have met in the past — was the shooter’s primary target, law enforcement officials say.

But the motives of Loughner — an English grammar-obsessed Army reject — remain murky and don’t fit into an easy liberal-conservative rubric. In recent weeks, he took to the Web to rail against brainwashing by government officials and “mind-control methods.”

Oh everybody just GIVES me just what I need. So you are promoting internalizing and self destruction. So when a cop pulls you over and gives you a 600 dollar ticket knowing full you don't deserve it and he's not protecting any greater good or serving the public he's simply stealing money because his boss told him to he should put the gun in his fucking mouth and kill himself. What are the chances of that happening there chief? What are the chances of him suddenly developing a concious and just handing out a warning. They are slim and none.

So what do we have here. A little internalization externalization puzzle to solve. How much time does law enforcement devote to self improvement and collecting external opinions about what the do and why they do it. How many databases have been developed to track wrong doing inside the government versus wrong doing outside the government.

You see. I'm not off base at all. When it comes to crime and punishment the focus is always on you. When it comes to sympathy and support the focus is always on THEM. And you are a horrible fucking judge and a horrible fucking problem solver. But I have NO DOUBT you're pathetic little thoughts of kill yourself next time sicko will be dutifully collected and compressed into self destructive liquid emotional energy and shoved down this guys limbic system. That's how it works. That's the energy mechanics of it. You're a prison guard helping out the wardens by being a clueless fuck.

I state MY FEELINGS and MY THOUGHTS about the subject. Now I guess all we need to do is count how many times this has been attempted to be 'corrected' to see just how an important an issue this is to earth sucks mechanics.

Of course they would say a chainsaw was used. I was talking about mentioning that the chainsaw had an extended cutter bar instead of simply saying a chainsaw was used.

What exactly was the purpose of pointing out in the immediate headlines that an extended clip was used other than to pursue an agenda. Was only one clip used? Did he reload with a second or third clip? I heard nothing about that initially. But quickly everyone knows about the extended clip. Enquiring minds want to know why this was highlighted.

Agenda driven news repeating.

I read that the gun had a 30 round clip. I own a small 9mm and the clip is 7 rounds and takes up about 3 1/4 inches. That means that 30 round clip was appx. 13 inches long and weighed about 1 lb. loaded if it is somewhat the same as mine. A 30 round clip for a hand gun that has a handle that is 3 inches long??? Something is not koscher here.      Milestones

Your pistol uses single stack magazines... the rounds lie in a row, single file.  The glock uses a double stack mag... the rounds are not quite side by side in two columns.  That 30 shot magazine does not fit flush with the grip, it extends well beyond it.  Think Terminator 3, the pistol John uses to shoot the TX in the hanger near the end is a glock-18 with extended mag.

There were other reports that another person in the crowd shot back, but missed. The point I was getting at is that it was a pistol, a 9mm Glock 19. But no matter what type of weapon is used in a crime, there's always some idiot in the media who will call it an "automatic weapon."

The magazine nor the gun killed the poor victims, it was an insane shooter. Let's make people illegal I say.

Fitting that the guy was military. 

When leaders send youngsters to do their bidding fighting senseless wars, killing innocent civilians all for control of resources for rich elites, it is no wonder it destroys those young minds. 

Too bad a growing number of young, poor americans have so few employment options that they have to join the military.  

Perhaps elected officials should think about their participation in authorizing these needless wars.   And maybe they should fear what they are creating.

My prayers are with the 9-year old boy and Jared. The others can rot in hell. Communist tax thieves and property seizers don't deserve any respect.

Exactly -- what if that judge had been your dad, your uncle, or your brother?

If you are looking for human qualities such as compassion on ZH, it's pretty scarce.

If it was your dad or your uncle or your brother. They'd have people to give them compassion.

I don't know the judge. He means nothing to me. I don't feel obligated to give him sympathy and he isn't owed any sympathy because his death was televised or printed or aknowledged.

This trying to hook us up to every rock star, tv star, politician etc etc is stupid and meaningless and abused. I don't feel like I'm lacking or inadequate for not wanting to start a windows 7 party or a pity party or a tupperware party.

Now if jerry fallwell gets on tv and says these guys died because they made a pact with the devil it wll confuse me. But thanks for taking the time to bitch about it. I'll put it on the todo list.

Todo- Work on insincere compassion because i'm peer pressured into it and made to feel like i'm lacking or somethings wrong with me.

PS. Log out of fight club first because it's for FIGHTING.

It appears he might be an entry level military reject, not a vet.

Hey people..  being from Atlanta I can assure you Jay Bookman is your typical liberal douchebag working for a liberal rag that nobody will pay to buy cuz the writing sucks.  He feels he has an obligation to blame republicans (I am not one btw) for the world's evils.  It is pretty sad that he's tried to use the death of these people, including a 9-year-old child, to justify his venom towards the right.  Don't waste your time with anything he says.  Last I heard one of the murdurer's favorite books was the Communist Manifesto.  What does that make him??

It's confirmed, the shooter was an entry-level reject, and was not a soldier, let alone an Afghan vet.

The left, who never allow a good crisis to go to waste, will push their usual hot bottons.  If reports about the murderer's favorite books are accurate, will anyone on the left lay the blame on the authors in Jared's list, like Adolf Hitler.  Karl Marx's pen is responsible for more democide outside of war than any firearms ever were.

Not entirely true. Marx's pen combined with any number of other peoples' firearms would be a more accurate statement. Unless one were to equate Marxism with cancer or heart attacks.

One thing's for sure though. It's not Marx or Hitler that made this kid nuts. My money's on Gulliver's Travels. That crap can confuse just about any sane person.

is it just me or does nobody give a rats anus that the point is NOT ONLY that people have been harmed, the shooter was RESPONSIBLE and a VICTIM, and that a fucking EXTENDED MAGAZINE has nothing to do with anything. I can eject a mag and exchange in a second and a half. 

talk about conditioning.

Yeah, it's a sad tale. I was down at the shooting range with all the other liberals just last week. We all agreed that it was a good idea to take the guns out of everybody's hands but our own. Then we would have our way with the pansy right-wingers who would never aim a gun at us in anger.

HL & S,

the shooter was RESPONSIBLE and a VICTIM

No, he was not a VICTIM, in the sense he murdered these grannies, and a 9yr old, a Judge, and Congresswoman(who if VERY lucky may not be a vegetable for life).

The SPOTLIGHT that this young man was OFF the Chart deep end is a crime, in that no one gave a shit, and got him into a Dr's care.

Might not have made any difference, but I'll be damned if I wanted to be his parents wondering WHAT IF the rest of their lives.
