Differing reports regarding if shots fired and if there are any injuries. There was a daycare center in the building that has been evacuated.

      This is what comes of watching too many Al Gore global warming flicks!

      You know what? I’m sure I’ll get ranked on for saying this- but I am glad to hear this arsehole has been shot!

      Most interesting thing I have read today about his background—-one of the main factors which inspired and motivated him to plan his protest a few years back & continue in targeting “Discovery” Channel—was Al Gore’s “Inconvenient Truth”.

      Hmnnnnnn,,,,,seems as if the Goracle’s Bogus Global Warming BS has had an adverse affect on more than one nut job….Lovely.

      Good thing the only life lost was the one of this loser! Good riddance.

      Sounds like a moonbat to me. I wonder if he posted at DU or various other moonbat sites.

      just like i expected a democrat to act. now they’re sending death threats and firing live rounds at GOP and Tea Party offices.
      i guess the real kkk radicals are the democrats and liberals who are always crying foul.
      those democrats who would turn themselves into sheep, will be eaten by the wolves.

      More news about another criminal coming this weekend: a Dutch reporter (John van den Heuvel) from the newspaper “De Telegraaf” ( had an exclusive interview with Joran van der Sloot in Peru. Parts of this interview this weekend online on the website and the interview will be on MSM this monday on Dutch TV (RTL4).

      #7–Thx 4 the link. Van Den Heuvel can report on whatever BS the Monster is spewing this time. Futile.

      Stephany Flores’ murder case is not an entirely circumstantial one as was poor Natalee Holloway’s. There too much forensic & circumstantial evidence in addition to video tape for them to ever throw out that confession. Either way, doesn’t matter.

      JoRaN VaN DeR SLooT is a DeAD Man WaLkInG

      Buh-bye, Little Sporter- you suck!
