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.

    So, you're pro censorship. At least you can be honest enough to admit that, although not honest enough to put your name on the post. That's better than most, at least.

    Conversely, that AC and his tender-eared pals hooked up to OUR Internet, and then started yammering on about how they don't like what they see. They're welcome to piss off back to where they came from and make their own Internet - with blackjack... and hookers!

    (As far as Facebook/Twitter, if they made a business presence for themselves in France et al, then they, too, deserve what they'll get.)
