    obviously like your web-site but you need to take a look at the spelling on quite a few of your posts. A number of them are rife with spelling issues and I to find it very bothersome to tell the truth then again I¦ll surely come back again.

    The Irony here is that most of the people involved in this communist resurgent movement have never lived in a communist country. This sick individual should be forced to spend the rest of his life in a Siberian gulag.

    Although I have not been to America but I have learnt through media and some friends that every American citizen can have a licensed gun in the name of self protection. Three decades back when USA or in other words MIC had not yet started war against USSR from our soil we were the most peaceful and safe people in surroundings, on border with Afghanistan as 90% of our population had no weapon at all and the major weapon was British made semi automatic rifle 303 which only high class and rich had to afford. We being a tribal had own customs and traditions due to which we had an ideal peace and quick system of justice and despite being a buffer zone between the two states none had proper Administrative setup, like police stations, or military garrisons in entire tribal belt and being a part of Pakistan under the Law of FCR tribal were responsible for the safety of the GOVT officials in their respective areas. So all this peace and prosperity those days had been due to one single reason that there were no guns, so commonly available.
    Today US greed for global domination and MIC's hunger for more and more money has not only put American soil on fire but also the fate of the whole world is in danger. This is not the first incident but a continuity of such unfortunate incidents on American soil and one American Governor has even called for action on emergency level. So with this background and prophetic words of US President in 1961, it is a time to stop before it reach a point of no return

    To me this crime against humanity in Aurora theater has two main reasons and I will blame two for this unfortunate incident.
    1 This evil James Holms who in person has carried out this merciless killing in civilian gathering.
    2 MIC dominant role in formulation of America's internal and external policies.
    In 1961 during last address to the nation US President Eisenhower had said "if the Military Industrial Complex (MIC) ever gains control of the U.S. government..we will never again see peace in our lifetime. If you manufacture weapons of war...you have to manufacture reasons to use them. They are slowly killing our government and country as well"

    The best way to protect yourself against an enemy is not to kill them or more cops. It's to not make enemy in the first place.

    It is absurd to think the American public can be protected in every single place they congregate, it is not possible. Just another power play by government bureaucracies to increase their budgets...

    Yep, give us your freedom, and we will give you safety.

    It's time to reject this, violently if the goverment will not accede to the reasonable request for liberty.

        As Americans, it is our duty to protect our freedoms. If the government begins taking away certain freedoms that cannot be taken away, we would take up arms to cleanse our government. If you believe not being free is the American way, you're sorely mistaken
