You're not kidding. It's sad that our news agencies are so financially motivated, but the reality is that no one would do it for free, either.

I wondered about that as well
It was a planned attack but was it just coincidence that it was an Jason Aldean concert or was it to target the type of people that would be attracted to that type of concert ?

I suspect the latter to be true. Time will tell I suppose.

While an act like the one at the Ariana Grande concert was likely more opportunistic...the crowd type there was targeted for a different reason possibly.

I don't know. I can see it, but I can also see it as a crazed individual choosing a massive crowd with little to no security from his vantage point, ie it was opportunistic happenstance that put those poor people in his path. I'm not jumping to conclusions b/c we have no idea until the police uncover anything, if there actually is anything to uncover.

A little extra scary for a while. The oldest son, his wife, hunting partner and wife are in Vegas. Hear from them this morning through facebook. One does wonder when you don't hear from them.

"CBS has parted ways with one of the company’s top lawyers after she said she was “not even sympathetic” to victims of the Las Vegas shooting because “country music fans often are Republican,” when discussing the mass shooting that unfolded in Las Vegas late Sunday night. "

I copied and pasted this, kind of gives you an idea of the mindset of liberals.

It's no different than extremely religious people stating someone got what they got b/c they're a "sinner." (Like those folks that picket soldiers' funerals, and the folks that blame natural disasters on "the sins of America") People on both sides of the aisle have the ability to be huge jerks, and unfortunately it makes the entire group look bad. It's like a person basing the health of another's herd on the one old cow in the pen. I know a lot of great conservative, religious people and I know a lot of great liberal, agnostic/atheistic people.

Full disclosure: I have been registered, at one point in my life, with both major political parties. Neither have served my needs better than the other. As a middle class, white, straight male with no official church affiliation, I feel let down by both parties. Like many a good feral cats, politically speaking, I don't trust anyone.

I agree. I often think of some of the crude comments that were made about Michelle Obama. Someone once characterized Michelle Obama as an " ape in high heels". Truth of the matter is she looks better than 90 % of the people I see every day. I think what it says is that 80% of the human race are petty jerks.
