Jurassic Media enjoys the Sandy Hill tragedy WAY too much, probably because, as noted here, it is tailor-made to advance several liberal agenda items; specifically, gun control, public school supremacy and more big government programs. While the facts of this case are not known, we do know that our society started down the toilet the day we decided that the biggest sin we could commit was being “judgmental.” Remember that movie “One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest” from the 1970′s? That film represents the beginning of the mentality that has brought us where we are today; that is, there is no insanity or pathological behavior, just alternative lifestyles. It was actually desirable when socially undesirable behavior, like illegitimacy, was stigmatized.

What role does the coarsening of the culture, including the “music” by Obama’s pals Common and Jay-Z, play in incidents like Sandy Hook?

New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg makes a fool of himself AGAIN, this time by suggesting on NBC’s “Meet the Press,” that horrible mass murders like the one that happened last Friday in Newton, CT occur “only in America.” Not exactly, Your Honor. Can you say “Dunblane, Scotland” or  ”Utoya, Norway?” Fool.

How convenient-Hillary Clinton falls on her head, and even though no hospitalization was required, somehow she can’t testify about Benghazi.

EXTREMELY DISAPPOINTING: John Boehner does the El Foldo, retreats on raising tax rates on those with incomes over $1 million.

Marathon Pundit reminds us that Ronald Reagan, despite being shot, didn’t change his position on gun control.

Report: Connecticut Shooting Was Revenge Killing (was the shooter angry because of a confrontation the day before at the school in which he was “dissed?”)

Holder: We Must Answer ‘Hard Questions’ About Gun Rights (Mr. Holder, are you really the one to lecture us about the dangers of firearms in the wrong hands, given that your “Justice” Department was responsible for the murder of not only U.S. Border agent, Brian Terry, and another federal agent Jaime Zapata, but hundreds of Mexicans?)

Hickenlooper shifts position on more gun control measures – The Denver Post (he made this statement before the Sandy Hill shootings, a post-election conversion, no doubt)

Blog: Sanitizing Adam Lanza (Shades of the Trayvon Martin case, in which the Lame Stream Media insists on showing us an old photo of the shooter, making him look like a goofy kid. This post contains a more current photo, one that would make Charlie Manson shudder.)

Connecticut school shooting: troubled life of Adam Lanza, a fiercely intelligent killer – Telegraph (story that reports that shooter’s mother received $240,000 a year from her ex-husband, which makes this case a poor example of why we need more big government mental health programs, not that this fact will interfere with the Left’s attempts to exploit it to advance their agenda)

Teachers sacrificed themselves to save their pupils – Telegraph (if only principal Dawn Hochsprung, school psychologist Mary Sherlach, or the brave teachers Victoria Soto and Lauren Rousseau had not been rendered defenseless by laws making schools “gun-free” zones, perhaps lives could have been saved. Didn’t we learn anything after the VA Tech murders? We should call these “helpless victim” zones.)
