49 dead, brought to you by Rep. Steve Chabot (R-Ohio).

Sometimes I hate the pedant that lives inside me. Or maybe it’s just a copy editor? Anyway: Dispersed? No, Disbursed. You could make a case for either, but do you really want to?


#4

God. That’s my representative. I weep.


#5

Christ, What an asshole.


#6

ISIS?

I thought the stock answer was “it’s Obama’s fault”?


#7

No, actually I think fault lies squarely with the asshole who decided to go into Pulse and start shooting a bunch of innocent people in pursuit of self-loathing/notoriety/hate. Everyone else is doing their best to push their own agendas as well-meaning or stupid as they might be.

Obama, who has no compunctions about secretly, repeatedly, un-Constitutionally drone-striking innocents halfway around the world - never misses out on a tragic opportunity to scold all of us and push for removing rights that he doesn’t agree with.

And this slipped by?
"… those who received the most from the NSA over their careers. "

Man, now even the spies are in on it?


#9

49 dead, brought to us my Omar Mateen, who was in Orlando and actually shot people, not really 1 of 435 representatives who lives in Ohio we don’t like the politics of.

So your response is “well… crazy people gonna crazy!” You can chose to be ignorant about allllll the other first-world countries that have this figured out better than us, but that doesn’t mean the rest of us have to.

Obama, who has no compunctions about secretly, repeatedly, un-Constitutionally drone-striking innocents halfway around the world - never misses out on a tragic opportunity to scold all of us and push for removing rights that he doesn’t agree with.

I despise the drone war, but this is pure whataboutism. “Mommmmm–Obama gets to use drones so why can’t we have unfettered access to military-grade firearms!?”


#11

I can’t even go there with this fucking douche bag.


#12

This manages to be my least favorite response. At least the assholes using this for political and financial gain are being mostly transparent about it, and not claiming some sort of shitty high road.

The Onion: ‘No Way to Prevent This,’ Says Only Nation Where This Regularly Happens


#14

“the very people who would defend themselves” – like the off-duty police officer working security who tried and failed to stop the atttacker? In this scenario, the “good guy with a gun” that I’ve heard people claim will stop all these types of incidents before they can start was outgunned.


#15

NRA logic says that the off-duty cop should have been carrying more guns.


#16

I can’t see Democrats credibly complaining about this anymore, sorry.

When, not if, HRC fails to address campaign finance reform during her presidency, I fully expect Democrats suddenly forget it was ever a priority. Just like they did with drone warfare and the PATRIOT Act.

By all means, point out how stupid his remarks are and how wrong he is, but we’ve officially stopped giving a fuck as a society about Congressional payola.


#17

Nah. It’s just that malapropisms are more fun than typos.


#18

There’s a whole lot of assholes in a whole lot of countries.

But only one developed country where those assholes have free access to assault rifles.


#19

Citation needed. But still even if the killer was Muslim that doesn’t mean that Christians who’ve cited their faith as a reason for harming or denying rights of LGBT people should get to downplay their views in the wake of this tragedy, especially the ones who also happen to be elected officials.

It appears the new Inspector Gadget movie is going to show a LOT more violent take on the character than has ever been done! :grin:
