I’m sick of these “woe is me” stories of a guy who can’t hack it and says “screw the world, I’m taking you all down with me.”
I’m tired of white men (NOT BOYS, DAMMIT!) who haven’t figured out that sitting on your ass and being a white male isn’t going to get you very far anymore, be it job related or dating related.
And I’m really sick of the media and government not calling it like it is. I’m tired of them not calling these white male shooters “terrorists.”
I think its a simple formula: if your object is to maim or kill complete strangers that mean nothing to you and have never personally wronged you, because of some supposed belief you hold (whether nurtured, cultural, religious, etc.) and you find a way to…
According to The San Antonio Express-News, Kelley served in the Air Force but was court-martialed in 2012 and guilty of domestic violence. He’d assaulted his wife and young child, the court-martial found, and sentenced him to 12 months of confinement and gave him a “bad discharge” from the Air Force.

“We got it wrong and will do our best to provide you verified information in dynamic breaking news circumstances.”
Is this more recent story about Twitter based on ‘verified information’?
Despite Igor Koske’s fervent gratitude to Russia Today for providing a Russian citizen with an alternative to America’s Cable Network News, this RT Twitter fiction doesn’t exist beyond Russia’s fog of fake right-wing news outlets.
Today tragedy happened. 9 lives were taken at Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church by a single human being. The killings were senseless, confounding, and difficult to understand. How could something so tragic take place in a place of worship, peace, hope, and love. How could such a cruel event take place and remove a pastor: Rev. Clementa Pinckney, a librarian: Cynthia Hurd, a speech therapist and pastor: Sharonda Singleton, a bible study teacher: Myra Thompson, a recent college graduate: Tywanza Sanders, an admissions coordinator: Rev. DePayne Middleton-Doctor, a choir member: Susie Jackson, a backstage auditorium manager: Ethel Lance, and another pastor: Rev. Daniel Simmons Sr.
This tragedy is unspeakable and the grief impalpable. Yet in this age of social media, it seems that instead of focusing on the tragedy and supporting, loving, and praying over the families and the victims, we immediately begin debating the finer points of a tragic…
