A suspected Islamic terrorist opened fire at a gay nightclub in Florida, killing 50 people and wounding another 53 before he was killed by police. While authorities continue to investigate to determine whether this man had ties to ISIS, the terror organization has not been quiet in praising the attack. This comes three days after ISIS announced they would attack somewhere in Florida. Today's attack marks the largest act of terrorism on US soil since 9/11.

takyon: The gunman reportedly called 911 emergency services to pledge allegiance to ISIS. The President will hold a briefing momentarily. Compare this article to the original submission.

    I love watching people like him have a meltdown when people like you back them into a corner and point out their complete dysfunctional hypocrisy! It's like watching a very large toddler inching closer and closer to a massive, red-faced, floor-pounding temper tantrum. The worst part, though, is they expect everyone else to be dumb enough to mistake their macho posturing for anything approaching common sense, civility, or self-control.

    I am "that girl" your mother warned you about...

    Thank you. What I enjoy most is watching how their lack of internal cohesion compromises the principles they claim they hold. I'm counting two big ones so far.
