At least 27 people are dead--including 18 children--after a gunman believed to be a student´s father opened fire today at an elementary school in Connecticut. Police were dispatched to Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown after they received reports of shots being fired by a gunman in one of the kindergarten classrooms of the school at 9.35am. There are preliminary reports a student´s 20-year-old father was the shooter and that he went from classroom to classroom firing at students and teachers with a .223-caliber rifle. An entire classroom of students is unaccounted for and frantic parents are desperately seeking information

Horrible tragedy. I can´t imagine what the parents are going through.

Just like some of the readers have been talking abour racially profiling arab muslims at airport, we need to start racial profiling of young white males in their 20s-30s at all schools and malls.

Search Google for major shootings in the USA… search the shooters name…. there are wackos of every size, shape, color and ethnicity… The school shooters are almost all young white males in their 20’s-30s.

I believe in responsible gun ownership… but too many crazies out there and unfortunately you and I have to put up with the inconvenience …. Just my two cents.

Itis a good thing that schools are "gun free zones." Imagine if one of the teachers had had a weapon (and the training)for defense; someone might have gotten hurt!

Now, these two event happening at the same time provides proof that insane people use any agent to accomplish their horrific deeds. It isn´t confined to any one object.

Still too early to know exactly what happened, either the body count or the nature of the perp(s).

But not too early for the usual suspects to start blaming the NRA and "lax" gun laws.

Very sad all around.

I would be curious to see how many of these young white male shooters are addicted to violent video games. I think they get bored with "pretend" shooting and they want to see what it would feel like to shoot at live targets (humans). So very sad at any time of year, but especially right before Christmas.

How is it that such things occur more and more often in America, yet many people cannot or will not admit that something is very wrong with our country. The left will blame this on gun ownership, but people do not go out and kill innocent children unless their souls have been overtaken by evil. God save us from the evil one.

With ultra-violent video games and Tarantino-style movies, our natural, instinctive revulsion to blood, torn and mangled bodies, etc. is being "programmed" out of us. Particularly true of people who are already mentally unstable.

What used to be "unthinkable" is now easily enacted with video games and transferring that "experience" to the real world is not that big of a leap to some people.

Another profoundly sad tragedy - it is less of a gun problem than it is a culture problem. Americans need to sit back and take a good look at themselves and the moral turpitude of society - we see the results of the ´me´ generation daily thrust in our faces. IMHO,it is past time for the pendulum to swing back and leave the madness of this hedonistic society in ashes.

If you have children STILL in a public school you are a brain-dead fool or extremely selfish to risk your kids mental and physical well-being for a dual income.

It is a horrible place to raise your kids and gets worse with each day.

Yes and don´t forget the fact that people are no longer taught to respect life or others. Everything today is me, me me me me!

Guns have nothing to do with the killing. The guy could have killed even more of the children with a bomb (which is actually easier to get one´s hands on than a gun). I am so sick of the lefties...they are going to use this as another campaign to outlaw guns or restrict them so much that nobody can get them (except the elite in power)

All over America today people are praying, ´dear God, don´t let this be a black man, dear God, don´t let this be a white Christian, dear allah, don´t let this be a muslim.´
When the vast majority of those groups are not violent but what we need to do is start banning all the violent movies, TV shows, video games. All of us here see this daily on our TV sets. Have any of you ever watched Criminal MInds? How they come up with the most insane plots showing the most horrific murders is beyond me. I stopped watching that show after just a few months. I see advertisements for other shows that show a pornography of violence. How does this affect the minds of young people?
We have successfully banned God from the marketplace and have replaced HIm with the glorification of sex and violence. We have lost our souls.

Oh by the way, have you folks seen some of the stuff that is in movies nowadays? In both full feature movies and in short films. The extreme gore and evil that is portrayed in these so-called horror or crime movies is beyond anything imaginable. I saw a film where this doctor´s sick obsession was indulged. He paid a prostitute to cut off his body parts so he could eat them. And then the kid saw it all and kept a finger (to start the sick process over again in his life). I mean this stuff is beyond sick.

Romans 1: 28 And since they did not see fit to acknowledge God, God gave them up to a debased mind to do what ought not to be done. 29 They were filled with all manner of unrighteousness, evil, covetousness, malice. They are full of envy, murder, strife, deceit, maliciousness.

Unless there is great turning to our Creator, I fear we in the USA, and the World, are going to see more and more of the tragic results of "debased minds."

I haven´t yet seen the report that it was the kindergarten teacher´s son - but interesting to note that last week a young man murdered his father, an instructor at Casper College in Wyoming, and now this. Copy cat? (Well in Casper the father´s girlfriend was murdered first with a gun; then jr. used a bow and arrow on his dad).

As I said in the first thread down below, I am absolutely sickened. I spend a lot of time in elementary classrooms and to think that in a nice quiet neighborhood, in a school with decent security, that such horror can ensue.

As you can imagine my colleagues at the college here are knee-jerk blaming the NRA/gun lobby. No thought given to the fact that we have made it near impossible to teach traditional moral/religious values, that the family is no longer considered the building block of a strong healthy civilization, that there are no restrictions on the gratuitous violence and sex that our youngest children are exposed to, the glorification of the drug and ghetto and gang culture- and how all of that might have created a monster who can kill a classroom of innocent 5 year-olds.

No doubt we will hear soon enough about the mental health of the shooter. We´ll get all the details. But for now I am shaken to the core. This isn´t supposed to happen in America.

How can you protect your children when their teacher´s own child is the attacker? She may have been a wonderful teacher, but the children in her class were placed in danger because someone in her family was violent.

For a president long criticised for seeing things only in black and white, the exhibition of George W Bush´s art at his presidential library in Dallas comes as something of a revelation. Delicate brushwork has replaced his famed swagger. He presents himself as a wholly different kind of Texas oilman. With each new brushstroke he seems also to be softening his public image. [Snip] His vantage point, of course, is unique: the cockpit of the presidency--or, at least, his recollection of those tumultuous White House years.

The US Treasury has granted plane manufacturer Boeing a licence to export certain spare commercial parts to Iran, a company spokesman says. Boeing has had no public dealings with Tehran since 1979.

An angry crowd attacked an Ebola treatment centre in Guinea on Friday, accusing its staff of bringing the deadly disease to the town, Medecins Sans Frontieres (MSF) said, as Mali identified its first suspected cases. More than 90 people have already died in Guinea and Liberia in what the medical charity has warned could turn into an unprecedented epidemic in an impoverished region with poor health services. The outbreak in Guinea is the first time the disease, epidemics of which occur regularly in Central Africa, has appeared in the country. Infected patients initially went undiagnosed for several weeks before tests confirmed Ebola.

The State Department has no idea what happened to $6 billion used to pay its contractors. In a special “management alert” made public Thursday, the State Department’s Inspector General Steve Linick warned “significant financial risk and a lack of internal control at the department has led to billions of unaccounted dollars over the last six years. The alert was just the latest example of the federal government’s continued struggle with oversight over its outside contractors.

A triumphant President Barack Obama declared Tuesday his signature medical insurance overhaul a success, saying it has made America´s health care system ´a lot better´ in a Rose Garden press conference. But buried in the 7.1 million enrollments he announced in a heavily staged appearance is a more unsettling reality. Numbers from a RAND Corporation study that has been kept under wraps suggest that barely 858,000 previously uninsured Americans – nowhere near 7.1 million – have paid for new policies and joined the ranks of the insured by Monday night.

Earlier this week on Boston’s WRKO-AM’s The Howie Carr Show, conservative commentator Ann Coulter shocked some conservatives when she said she is making 2012 Republican nominee Mitt Romney her favorite for the 2016 Republican contest. Last month in an interview on CBS’s Face the Nation, Romney himself ruled out the possibility of a 2016 run and said he was instead focused on who to get behind in that contest. Coulter, however, wishes otherwise. “Well, don´t tell him but I´m planning on giving Mitt Romney a little more time to rest -- flying out, kidnapping him and depriving him of sleep, food and

A 54-year-old white man has been left barely clinging to life after he was brutally beaten by a group of black men when he got out of his car to check on a young black boy he accidentally hit. Steve Utash, from suburban Roseville, was beaten into a coma Wednesday by an angry mob in a poverty-stricken Detroit neighborhood after David Harris, 10, ran in front of his truck on a busy street, but police insist the incident was not racially motivated. The gang also stole his wallet before leaving him for dead. Utash is in extremely critical

President Barack Obama contended that the government did not “make a hard sell” for Obamacare, despite his administration spending nearly $700 million to promote the law. “We didn’t make a hard sell,” Obama said in the Rose Garden on Tuesday, praising the 7.1 million sign ups for the Affordable Care Act. “We didn’t have billions of dollars of commercials like some critics did.” However, last July the Associated Press reported that Obamacare’s marketing campaign would cost at least $684 million. Taxpayer funding went to all 50 states in efforts to encourage people to enroll, including nearly $28 million for the

Attorney General Eric Holder disputed a Government Accountability Office report on his use of Justice Department airplanes for personal trips, saying it overstated the number of trips he took and failed to recognize that some trips were job-related. "My staff keeps telling me to take it easy, you know, well, this is one that gets me," Holder told Rep. Frank Wolf, R-Va., during a House Appropriations subcommittee hearing. "There was this notion that we´ve taken -- I think it was described as hundreds of personal trips. That was wrong. GAO counted flights, not round trips. And we looked at it

Following her speech at the “Women of the World Summit” in New York City on Thursday, Hillary Clinton was asked this simple question by a moderator: “When you look at your time as Secretary of State, what are you most proud of? And what do you feel was unfinished, and maybe have another crack at one day?” Here are a few excerpts from her response: ”Look, I really see my role as Secretary, in fact leadership in general in a democracy, as a relay race. When you run the best race you can run, you hand off the baton.” “Some

Accra, Ghana — Jimmy Thorne says that relocating to Ghana is one of the best moves he’s ever made. It doesn’t matter if he, an African-American, gets called “obroni,” the local word for white person, in the streets, or if some of his family can’t quite figure out what he’s doing in this West African nation so far from his roots in North Carolina. (Snip) Whether motivated by love, money, or the desire to rekindle a long-lost connection, black repatriation to Africa remains alive and well, even if it never quite became the high-volume, emotional return to African roots
