"Could it be they want to escape from children being gunned down and the anarchists who are trying hard to eliminate our Federal Government not to speak of the ever increasing flow of drugs for those who can not face life."

++

The preferred punctuation would be a question mark "?" or maybe an exclamation point "!". Assuming a question mark, I will answer it "no".

Actually (...and, this is just between you & I), we Libs/Progressives are purchasing those "vacation packages" for all o' those folks who are constantly whining about one-thing-or-another...as a result o' whichever conspiracies they prefer.

They're not very smart, and should EASILY be drawn outta their bunkers...with promises of alcohol, weapons-upgrades, and "guarantees" of a TOTALLY-White population on Mars.

The BIG plus, is...we're gonna save a BUNDLE on directional-apparatus/technology, for those flights. There won't BE any!!!!!!

Since all the mass shootings of children in the last 3 decades were committed by liberals, that only liberals fear a constitutionally-limited federal gov't and compare it to anarchy (because they are too dumb to see how those things could be done on a state level), and the drug culture was embraced by liberals, I have to wonder about Mr. Ebner's thinking as it conflicts with reality.

That explains why human beings journeyed out of the savannah of Africa and populated the world.

Shaman you certainly have a strange imagination. I choose to have a more positive outlook of my fellow man. You tend to paint anyone that doesn't believe as you do with a very broad brush.

Personally Mr. Ebner I think we could tackle the problems that we face if we learn to work together. Rebuilding the family unit and electing leaders with integrity and the devotion to serve the people's interests and not their own, would be a good start.

Erik, the common thread among shooters is severe mental health problems. Most had some contact with the MH system but little follow through. Most receiving MH services do not find life to be very inclusive and not only feel but are rejected by mainstream society.Has anyone ever provided any concrete evidence that any one of these individuals ever actually cast a vote? Liberal bashing is your stick but voting liberals and mass shootings are not one in the same. Please do not try to make a quantum leap to abortion. That is not the issue we are discussing.

Spike, I have to agree with regards to our MH System and the stigma that is placed on these illnesses. The same can be said with drug addiction and the need for addicts to have mental health treatment. Until we place more resources and emphasis on mental health and rehabilitation, these problems will only persist.

I am unaware of any significant group or movement with that goal.

Spike:

I would agree that the real problem is mental health as most of these shooters were very disturbed people.

Unfortunately, it is liberals who would not be so kind to conservatives if one or these mentally unstable people were listeners to Limbaugh or followers of Palin;

Liberals tried to paint every mass shooter as a Tea Party member before the facts came in.

So, liberal liars created this and I intend to hang the fact that every one of these mass shooters was also a liberal around their necks, just as the liberal liars tried to do to Tea Party members.

I grow weary of playing nice with scum.

Mr. Ebner, the author of this LTE, is another liberal liar, saying we want snarchy.

It is no different than Mr. Reeder saying we want to dismantle the social safety net or Shaman calling us racists

These are all liars and do not deserve to be treated as anything other than the scummy, sleazy liars they are.

When they learn to have a real debate of issues, then I will stop.

Until then, they have earned my disdain.

Regarding the question posed in the LTE; My guess would be those interested in a one-way trip to Mars have an extremely high sense of adventure and a great interest in the pursuit of science. It's a human thing.

"I grow weary of playing nice with scum." Erik, another person who used to post on this forum, CHayes, said the same thing about those on the right. Others followed that path at times from the left and the right. If you want to feel good about presenting the truth as you see it, then you are succeeding. If you want to get people to consider a different point of few, which is a far more difficult thing, then you are failing. Remember, if someone doesn't accept the message you, or anyone else is sending, the problem may lie with the sender as much as the receiver.

MrShaman-"and "guarantees" of a TOTALLY-White population on Mars."

Says the most racist person on the forum.

Shaman (AKA Michael Sullivan) can't argue any point without using race somewhere in it.

'Racist' and those worn out youtube videos aren't cutting it, Bucko. You need to come up with some new material.

DavidBross:

Playing nice does not win you anything when the other side says you hate women, minorities and don't care if water is polluted.

playing nice with liberal liars has not won the GOP and points in dealing with President Obama, repeat liar.

If I really wanted to stoop to their level, I would make things up, but I do not.

Every post about liberal liars is fact-based.

If I made things up, like the slimy Rev Sullivan, I would say he is not a racist because he enjoys molesting boys of any race.

But that is his level, and I will not go there.

The truth is that liberals constantly lies about conservatives and are rarely called on it.

Who are these anarchists who want to eliminate the Federal Government? This guy is just another Kool-Aid drinking moron who believes his liberal masters, no matter what kind of idiotic drivel they're pouring. There is no one in this country advocating eliminating the government. Even the few weirdoes who call themselves anarchists are really Communists who don't want to eliminate government as much as have a fundamental transformation of it (where have we heard that before). When you make ridiculous statements like this writer, you just lose all credibility with all except other brain dead Kool-Aid drinkers.

Shaman:

Search "Mass shooters and liberalism" for your proof.

Multiple sources, all linked to mainstream media reports.

But I am not surprised you would deny the facts....that what liberals do to cloud the argument and distract the discussion.

Poooooor, Rikki. Does "someone" need a Pity Party?????

We had the same types o' nut-jobs (running-loose) looooooooooong before the Tea Party reared it's head. You've (already) forgotten about all the cowards who'd bombed family-planning clinics...and, the others...who'd preferred the sharpshooter-option...when murdering doctors.

There were PLENTY of these instances, before Obama was elected President!!!!
