A gunman fired upon thousands of people attending a music festival on the Las Vegas Strip Sunday night, in a brutal attack that is blamed for at least 58 deaths, police say. In the mass shooting and panic that ensued, 515 people were injured. At least one of the dead is an off-duty police officer who was attending the concert.

Editorializing: Interesting how media always emphasize ISLAMIC terrorists, but downplay domestic terrorism as psychologically disturbed individual lone-wolfs.

    It really feels like a concentrated effort across a lot of countries to push high level control of society. Democracy is going out, too dangerous to let the little people have a say in how society is run. Silly plebes keep acting like they are different than the cattle they raise.

    Such a silly thing to say, waving one's historical ignorance about like that, with claims that democracies allow the little people to have a say in how society is run... (Hint: there's a reason the United States of America's first form of government was emphatically NOT a democracy, but a representative republic where the republic was to be "bound by chains" of a constitution which was a list of the only things said republic could do.)

      Such a silly assumption to make, are you perhaps related to a horse?
