      Agreed. Additionally it wasn't a surprise that he was pursing a career in the Healthcare/Marxism complex.

      It is the Healthcare/Marxism complex that teaches nutjobs to become megalomaniacs. "Social justice" is the same nonsense that led to the rise of Hitler. That is a matter of record.

    I think that they are implying that the suspect had a federal grant to study neuroscience. At least that is what I got out of the article.

    So what? Are you implying that this, too, is Obama's fault? The shooter was evidently brilliant, if not gifted, even if he was not mentally stable. What a waste, all the way around! Especially uncomfortable because we like to think of people who do these kinds of things as scum of the earth, drug-crazed, misfits. Here is what seems to be your Christian, well-educated son of middle class professional parents. How sad.
