    Two points:

    1) People react to situations differently. Deciding you don't want to discuss it yet would be reasonable. And easily implemented by not clicking on links that say "Washington Navy Yard" right in the title. On the other hand, your clicking on links that say "Washington Navy Yard" and informing us repeatedly we don't meet your standard of decorum, discussing politics on a political message board in a way you don't approve of, is massively arrogant. Grow up by going away and coming back when you're ready to discuss.

    2) I have yet to ever see you say this to liberals, ever. So that you're level headed with us heathens generally and this time we crossed one of your lines is still massively hypocritical. Whining like this to liberals when they do it too would at least be consistent. I don't do that for anyone, I avoid threads I don't want to discuss. Wow, what I advocated. I'm consistent for a heathen.

    So seriously, it's a political message board, grow up.

    Let's ask "white Hispanic" George Zimmerman what he thinks about people politicizing tragedies.

    I stand by my initial reaction.
    Secondly, I've received quite a few of my reps from the right side, why is that?
    I'm sure you would have loved me when I tore into someone calling our troops "baby killers" during the initial invasion of Iraq when I was posting on The Atlantic's boards in 2003. I got banned for two weeks. I'm sure you can guess which side of the aisle that came from.
    I will admit that I was emotional in my response, which is highly uncharacteristic of me. Maybe I have had it up to my neck with responses like yours to a tragedy and it just happened to be yours that finally set me off. Typically, I do leave USMB when I get upset by posts such as yours.
    I'm not perfect by any stretch of the imagination and neither are you.

    I'm just surprised you're so open about being against child rape laws. I wouldn't be bragging about that slick.

    This thread was an attack on common sense to begin with.

    Dismiss the fact that there are 32,000 gun deaths a year in the US. By 2015, if present trends continue, gun deaths in the US will exceed auto deaths.

    Please refrain from using common sense in this thread. There's no room for that sort of nonsense here.
