Totally Limited Dennis

Dennis Kucinich on re-re-investigating 9/11 : "Cleveland Democratic Rep. Dennis Kucinich told an interviewer during one of his recent presidential campaign jaunts that he plans to hold an inquiry sometime in September on "some specific areas" of 9/11. "The inquiries will be limited," Kucinich told blogger Keith Farrell, who posted his interview on YouTube. "But I think that by focusing on some specific areas that to me represent the most egregious examples of distortion of truth or lack of information, by focusing in on that, I'll be able to bring forward a new dimension to the discussions. And from there, we'll move ahead."

Dennis on violence in America: Washington, Apr 18 - WASHINGTON, D.C. (April 18) — In the aftermath of Monday’s deadly shooting in Blacksburg, Virginia, Congressman Dennis Kucinich (D-OH) is proposing a comprehensive, three-point plan to deal with the violence plaguing America, including a ban on handguns.

Rep. Dennis Kucinich (D-Ohio), the most liberal of the Democratic presidential candidates in the primary field, declared in a letter sent to his Democratic House colleagues this morning that he plans to file articles of impeachment against Vice President Dick Cheney.

----Limited inquiries will bring a new dimension to discussions? Dennis, you should be head of the Ministry of Truth. And I gotta ask, why leave Bush out of the impeachment? Hmmm? His daddy is bigger than your daddy?

I'll give you the #1 root cause of violence. Money. Too much or not enough, and the amount needed to satisfy an individual is subjective. The VA Tech shooter, Cho, ranted about Mercedes driven classmates, debauchery, and trust fund brats.

I don't believe this recent massacre will be used to attempt a handgun confiscation (yet), other than by Dennis and a few others. The tragedy will be used with more subtlety; to insinuate that those who would rant against the rich folks must be crazy potential killers. And anyone with information of such ranters should contact the proper authorities. Of course, you're not mentally ill, but don't bitch too loudly or specifically about the wealth distribution in America – you might be seen as having a class envy Cho moment.

It has nothing to do with guns or wealth, it's the anti-depressants and that will be downplayed to the hilt.

Has it been confirmed Cho was on medication? Sounds to me he never received enough medical attention to be on drugs. Was he taking Lexapro for depression or Accutane for acne? Has a diagnosis been definitely confirmed of what his mental illness was? Was he mentally ill or simply antisocial b/c of upbringing/life experiences? I haven't watched the talking heads giving their expert guesstimations.

While I believe the FDA and big Pharma are in bed together, I also think blaming prescription drugs for acts of psychopathic behavior is a stretch.

Antidepressants have side effects yes, but if such drugs were the cause of mass homicide the US would have mass murder happening on a daily basis.

I ask too why do we not see women unloading weapons on innocent people in public places? Although surely that will come.

Mental health fundraisers will blame lack of mental health care, gun controllers will blame access to guns, autism fundraisers will claim autism needs more funding, big brothers will claim we need more security in place ... the usual advocates will get in line with an excuse and their hand out.

Cho had been waving red flags for a long time and no one intervened.

The public can blame antisocial behavior on a variety of causations. Personally, I think the country has become a seething kettle of mean people who care little what happens to anyone as long as it doesn't personally touch their piece of the social fabric. And/or they care when there's profit attached, i.e. many do-gooders see the funds and then support the "cause."

If someone as disturbed as Cho (according to accounts) entered my little corner of the world I'd be raising all kinds of hell to get attention for him or her.

(I must be on a rant today.)
