I find the words of Ron Paul -- if, in fact, it is not a hoax -- disrespectful, insensitive, and almost astonishingly thoughtless.

The only word I can come up with now to characterize Paul is "@$$h0le."

I worked in the mental health field for 8 years. I understand that sometimes there are treatments that sometimes appear radical. It's an ever evolving field.

What are your qualifications?

I'm qualified to determine good ideas from bad ones.

I specialize in risk assessment, management and reduction and two people are dead for their choices.

That's a bit like blaming a woman for being raped, because of the way she dresses, don't you think?

Neither of us are privy to his killer's medical history, or treatment plan.

No, that's possibly the worst analogy you could have come up with. Not even close.


We know that the "patient" was being "treated" by two people with good intentions but insufficient behavioral therapy skills and they both died.

You are correct in stating we don't know about the patients treatment plan or even if there was one. I somehow doubt that taking him to the range without an attending was part of the plan (if there was one). We can only hope for more information.

Horrible analogy.


Regards to what Paul said, I don't find it that inflammatory.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Live_by...e_by_the_sword

Quote:
The phrase is found in the Christian Book of Revelation, 13:10: "He that leadeth into captivity shall go into captivity: he that killeth with the sword must be killed with the sword. Here is the patience and the faith of the saints." (Rev.13:10 KJV)
Commonly, the expression is understood to mean, "You can expect to become a victim of whatever means you use to get what you want."[1]
Well, the government used force to get what it wanted out of Iraq, with guys like Kyle and the solider that killed him.

He volunteered to serve America, and to do it with the use of violence. Well, he was killed by another who was subject to that same violence. I don't see it as "Kyle got what he deserved" statement that the resident flag waving "'merica can do no wrong" crowd are trying to make it out to be. Don't care whether Ron actually tweeted it or not.

Not a knock, some people need killing, and guys like Kyle to do the killing. But spare me this spreading freedom and democracy BS.

This crazy 77 year old lunatic is still trying to get attention by displaying his utter contempt for Chris Kyle and all the other heroes who bravely serve in America's military.

There must be a heavy sprinkling of progressives in conservative clothing attractant as well. You can't wash that stink off.

That incompetent puppet excuse didn't work for his racist newsletters in the '90's and it won't work today.

If he can't manage his own words, from newsletters to twitter, thank God he never became President.

Chris Kyle's death seems to confirm that "he who lives by the sword dies by the sword." Treating PTSD at a firing range doesn't make sense

I can't believe so many people think treating a combat vet with PTSD at a gun range is a good idea.

I can believe that the same old noise makers that disagree with RP and liberty in general have no qualms shooting there mouths off despite the complete disregard for common sense.

So, is he too senile to issue any form of retraction or denial?
Did the Illuminati take over his damaged brain?

He said what he said, now what kind of whacked out stoned conspiracy nuts still pretend that he didn't?

Having an ounce of patriotism and respect for soldiers makes someone a fake conservative? He wasn't even killed in combat. What the hell is wrong with you people? No big surprise, of course, since Paulbots let the Code Pink protesters into the RNC convention, Code Pink and Soros-funded Iraq Veterans Against the Iraq War endorsed RP, and RP endorsed Adam Kokesh's Congressional run.

So, America can do no wrong?

This is not a statement about Kyle as a person. He did what was asked. And the guys he killed saved military lives.

But...

Are you going to sit here and tell me that America's politicians and populace which have fought tooth and nail to screw each other over domestically for decades. Are some how right in some twilight zone when they embrace the policy of constant intervention, sending guys like Kyle and his murderer into constant warfare?

The same a holes that screw us over here, are the same a holes that have no problem sending people into **** holes to get killed, maimed, and mentally screwed up for an agenda that has nothing to do with spreading democracy and freedom. Scrub the fantasy.

Pay no attention to the man behind the curtain.

Ron Paul can't control what Ron Paul says; he's merely an incompetent puppet, right?.

I was referring to JBinTX. He's a closet progressive.

Awful emotional group here tonight. What Paul said makes perfect sense. Read into what you like.

Exactly. I find the fact that RP supporters come here to defend him disrespectful as well. I mean this isn't even the thread to talk about his foreign policy. Hell he will never be PoTUS and even if he was correct in what he said, his timing is atrocious. All you RP supporters remind me of the gun control nuts after Newtown. A...holes come in all political flavors.

To all the - I don't blame him cuz he didn't write his own twat, well you'll said the same thing when he ran and he didn't write his own newsletter. Pathetic, I guess he can do now wrong. Here I thought O was the savior.
