What has this world come to?

A true lunatic, goes to a grocery store and shoots innocent, citizens participating in democracy and the media blames the right, talk radio and Fox News?? On what planet do we now live? Where did unbiased and balanced journalism go?

I am growing more disgusted in the way media frames our news so that it fits their agenda. Their agenda is one of oppression and big taxes that strangles the life blood of the American spirit. I hate the media and I have a journalism degree...great.

It cracks me up that the debate now focuses on the second amendment. They are questioning how the lunatic was able to purchase a gun.  If a lunatic can't shot to kill, he will use a knife, he will use a bomb or he will use a powder and the US Mail. Guys, it's not the guns that offends, it's the gun holder. If a person has evil intent, he will find a way to do evil.

Glen Beck nails it right on the head with this letter and challenge to America that starts off this way:
I challenge all Americans, left or right, regardless if you’re a politician, pundit, painter, priest, parishioner, poet or porn star to agree with all of the following.

• I denounce violence, regardless of ideological motivation.

• I denounce anyone, from the Left, the Right or middle, who believes physical violence is the answer to whatever they feel is wrong with our country.
Read the entire challenge at Beck's website.

Maybe we ought to look at our laws and programs that help with mental illness. Maybe we should provide services that find people with problems or provides the public with ways of reporting frightening behavior. What this lunatic did in Tuson is his responsibility alone. Irked.

Enough for now...
