John McCarthy Roll, 63, was Arizona's chief federal trial judge, having joined the court in 1991 after being nominated by then President George H. W. Bush, the biography says.

Roll in 2009 faced death threats after presiding over a $32 million civil rights lawsuit filed by illegal immigrants against an Arizona rancher. As a result, Roll and his wife spent time under 24-hour protection by the U.S. Marshals Service.

Roll, U.S Rep. Gabrielle Giffords, and more than a dozen others were shot at a Safeway grocery store where Giffords was to meet with constituents in her district.

She was shot in the head and has undergone surgery. Doctors say they are optimistic about her condition.

The alleged shooter, a 22-year-old man named Jared Loughner, is in custody.

Nine-year-old Tuscon girl Christina Taylor Green was fatally shot after her neighbours invited her to go along to a political meeting.

Christina was one of six people killed when a man opened fire at US congresswoman Gabrielle Gifford's meeting in Tuscan, Arizona.

The Arizona Republic website reported that a neighbour asked if Christina along to the event because she thought she would enjoy it her uncle Greg Segalini said.

Christina had just been elected to the student council at her school. The event was an opportunity for constituents to meet Mrs Giffords and talk about any concerns they had related to the federal government.

"The next thing you know this happened. How do you prepare for something like this. My little niece got killed-took one on the chest and she is dead," Segalini said outside the girl's house.

Christina was involved in many activities, from ballet to baseball, Segalini said.

"She was real special and real sweet," Segalini said.

Christina, who was reportedly shot in the chest, had featured in a book Faces of Hope: Babies born on 9/11.

The Laws of Stupidity



Hillbilly
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
1) The First Law of Stupidity is to blame all of your problems on someone else. This relieves you of any responsibility whatsoever for your life, and also makes the people you blame your problems on into permanent enemies. This is a highly intelligent thing to do!
 
2) The Second Law of Stupidity is to never learn from your mistakes. The smartest people learn from other people's mistakes, the second smartest learn from their own, and the dumbest don't even learn from their own mistakes.
 
3) The Third Law of Stupidity is to talk or act without thinking. That is, be impulsive! It's the same thing as being ruled by your more childish, indeed infantile, feelings.
 
4) The Fourth Law of Stupidity is to think than what you feel is what is right. One of the things it's based on is arrogance, or what the Greeks called Hubris. It is of course followed by Nemesis.
 
5) The Fifth Law of Stupidity is not to know you are impulsive and convinced that what feel is what is right. Instead, you believe you are rational and logical, even though you don't know even one logical fallacy.
 
6) The Sixth Law of Stupidity is to not listen to good advice. This is related to the Second, Third and Fourth Law of Stupidity. In fact, all the Laws of Stupidity are related to each other, and it's probable that all Stupid People show all of them in one degree or another.
 
7) The Seventh Law of Stupidity: you don't know you're stupid. In fact, you think you're smart! Aristotle noticed this one, when he wrote about ignorant people who didn't know they were ignorant. That was like 2500 years ago! Oh no! Stupidity is inherited! Someone get me one of those castration things that are used on sheep.
 
8) The Eighth Law of Stupidity: you can't tell when someone is smarter than you and almost always think you're smarter than them. This is related to what I call Scott?s Law, after a friend of mine who formulated it: The smart understand the stupid a lot better than the stupid understand the smart.

9) The Ninth Law of Stupidity is that you can have a high IQ and still be stupid. I?ve heard these people referred to as high-IQ idiots.
 
10) The Tenth Law of Stupidity is: The stupid are always really surprised when they end up in prison or when someone kills them.
It's a bit frightening to realize there are Ten Laws of Stupidity, just as there are Ten Commandments (although "Commandments" is the wrong word? Utterances, or Words, is correct).
Let's see if I can put all this into one sentence. Stupid people blame their problems on other people, they never learn from their mistakes, they think and act impulsively, they always think they're right, they think they are logical and rational, they don't know they're stupid, they think they're smarter than other people, they don't listen to good advice, and they're amazed when they get caught.
The Laws of Smartness, of course, are the exact opposite of the Laws of Stupidity.

I don't wish to be argumentative ,but I disagree with the Islamic belief that I should be killed! " If radical atheists decided they needed to kill believers to ensure their place in nothingness, I'd be criticizing that too."

 


 
Liberal Smear Machine Backfires After Gunman Found To Be Occultist, Pot-Smoking Left Winger
 
 
 
A full scale demonization campaign against conservatives, free speech and the Second Amendment on behalf of Democrats and the establishment media in the wake of Saturday’s shootings has sensationally backfired after it emerged that gunman Jared Lee Loughner was a left-wing, pot-smoking liberal who was into dressing like the grim reaper and dabbling in the occult.
In their fervor to tear down the First and Second Amendments, Democrats and their allies in the corporate media hastily characterized Loughner as an anti-government right-winger in their rush to link him to the Tea Party and Sarah Palin, a connection that is still being invoked as Dems seek to rush through gun control legislation as well as a bill that could make criticism of government a form of hate speech.
However, precisely as Alex Jones forecast on his show last night, it has emerged this morning that Loughner is a devil-worshipper wannabe who idolized fake human skulls and dressed up like the grim reaper.
How often have you witnessed a “tear partier,” an anti-government activist or a conservative engage in any of the following behaviors, all of which are confirmed to have been conducted by Loughner. (1) (2) (3) (4)
- Burning the American flag
- Being a “left-winger” and a “liberal”
- Smoking pot
- Having long hair
- Dressing up as the grim reaper
- Dabbling in the occult by worshipping a replica of a human skull
- Expressing the desire to be a woman
- Describing Karl Marx’s Communist Manifesto as a favorite book
Does it sound like Jared Lee Loughner was a right-wing conservative, as the liberal smear machine is attempting to claim?
Despite the fact that Loughner’s former classmate described him as “quite liberal” and “left wing,” the New York Times, Washington Post, along with a host of statist blogs like Huffington Post and the Daily Kos, were beating the drum for so-called right-wingers (opponents of Obamacare or big government) to be politically silenced in the name of “toning down the rhetoric”.
In reality, Loughner’s political views were all over the map, sharing characteristics of conservatism, liberalism and libertarianism. He was a fundamentally disturbed and deranged individual, which was the main reason for the carnage he become embroiled in, not because he was a tea partier influenced by the resistance against big government, as the establishment is now trying to claim.
The haste with which the attack machine had manufactured Loughner’s persona before his name was even known as a dangerous right-winger proves that the establishment had already embarked on a sickening plan to exploit the tragedy mere minutes after news of the shootings broke.
We don’t even have a clear motive for why Loughner apparently targeted Congressman Giffords. Indeed, since both Giffords and federal judge John Roll were both very conservative in their policies towards gun control and immigration, how do we know that Loughner’s anger wasn’t rooted in leftist rage?
Another key facet to this story is the fact that Loughner’s mental instability was well known on his campus, and yet “College authorities ignored repeated warnings that the drug-taking 22-year-old was a potential danger, a former teacher claimed last night.”
Despite the fact that Loughner’s profile is now confirmed as a black-clad, occult-dabbling, pot smoking unstable loner, in a similar mould to Columbine killers Harrison and Klebold, the establishment is still blaming so-called right-wing radio and talk show hosts for the tragedy and demanding that Americans “tone down their rhetoric,’ which is a mere euphemism for a brazen attempt to stifle criticism of the state altogether.
Speaking to Fox News, the father of the 9-year-old girl killed as a result of Loughner’s rampage commendably labeled the tragic events a “random act” and said that the death of his daughter should not be exploited to revoke freedoms.


 
Speaking on the subject of how travel became a nightmare after 9/11, John Green said, “We don’t need any more restrictions on our society,” as a consequence of the shootings, and said that tragic events such as those that led to the murder of his daughter was the price Americans have to pay for freedom.
 
Paul Joseph Watson is the editor and writer for Prison Planet.com. He is the author of Order Out Of Chaos. Watson is also a fill-in host for The Alex Jones Show. Watson has been interviewed by many publications and radio shows, including Vanity Fair and Coast to Coast AM, America’s most listened to late night talk show.
