  9. Arizona shooting: in defence of Palin

    The Black Hole
    I rarely feel the need to defend Sarah Palin, but I think this case warrants jumping in.

While...

  14. Shooting at the Holocaust Museum

    The Black Hole
    The shooter was an 88 year old longtime white supremacist. This has been alluded to in other threads, but has the election of Obama and a somewhat liberal agenda going to usher in an unprecedented period of domestic terrorism in America? Related to this, I'm not an American so I don't think...
