Both sides are using this incident to amp up charges that the other side is crazy.

Which of course, is crazy.

Some really angry people around here- on both sides.

We need to tone this stuff down.

Saturday's shooting has stirred up all of the old paranoias on both sides, and the furious keyboarding that's been going on here says it might be time for many to take a break from this place, turn off the news for a few days, and reconnect with family and friends.


Sure, both sides should tone it down. But there's zero doubt who's responsible for the nonsense this time. Within minutes of the news breaking certain posters started in and it all went downhill from there. I don't expect to ever see these people admit they went too far or apologize - it's just not who they are. And that's fine, that's what the p-box is for.

Political conversations on this board are broken for a while. This incident has dredged up a lof of ugliness and it's going to take a while for the bile to purge itself.
