I was going to subscribe to Kos, but suddenly I'm not so sure about this community.

20 kids are dead and there are all these long, inlvolved, obviously labored-over diarys about how it's bad that people are "blaming" gamers or mentally illl people or whatever.

That's not the problem people. The problem is; there are 20 dead kids.

Your hurt feelings for people saying "bad" things about your subset of citizens is not important at this juncture.

Because all that pales in the face of 20 dead kids.

Look, the shooter was mentally ill. No, I don't have a diagnosis of the issue, but it is SELF EVIDENT that the guy that slaughtered 20 innocent kids was mentally ill.

He was also a big gamer. Loved those shoot-'em-up games.

I understand that these facts might cause pain for some. But they're FACTS.

So get over yourselves. It might be unfair, but not as unfair as getting shot 11 times at the age of 6.

Guess which of these problems I would like to solve first.

1:17 PM PT: In conclusion,

No. I don't want to support this communty. My money is better spent elsewhere.

Feel free to friend me on Facebook if you like loudmouthed Liberals who hate guns. Zeb Norris, the one in Vermont. Adios.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
