Deadliest mass shooting in U.S. history

On 6/12/2016 the deadliest mass shooting in U.S. history occurred, when Omar Mateen, shot and killed at least 49 people and injuring 53 at Orlando FL nightclub Pulse.

Mateen had been questioned by the FBI twice. The FBI first became aware of Mateen in 2013 when he made inflammatory comments to co-workers alleging possible terrorist ties. In 2014, authorities interrogated Mateen anew for “possible ties” to an American suicide bomber, Moner Mohammad Abusalha, who appeared in an al-Nusra Front video in Syria.
Mateen was described by former colleague Daniel Gilroy as an “unhinged and unstable” person who repeatedly made racist, misogynist and homophobic remarks. “There was never a moment where he didn’t have anger and rage,” Gilroy told “The Kelly File”. “And he was always loud and cursing. And anytime a female or a black person came by, he would use horrible words.” Gilroy told Florida Today that he complained to his superiors several times about Mateen, but they refused to take action because, Gilroy claimed, Mateen was Muslim.

Why was #Mateen not fired from his job as a security officer at G4S Security, where he at one time worked at the courthouse in Port St. Lucie, FL? Why was he permitted to buy guns?

#Liberals are partly responsible. They have fostered #LitigationMadness, #ACLU, #PoliticalCorrectness, making Law Enforcement more difficult! We must allow our law enforcement to do their job. We must have tighter controls in USA. I support the 2nd Amendment, but we need to have better screening, to keep unstable people from buying guns.

#IslamExtremism is also responsible. Mateen was a devout Muslim who brought a prayer mat to work and prayed several times a day. Mateen mentioned #ISIS in a 911 call during the attack. Many #Islam leaders encourage violence and #Sharia law. These ways are not compatible with Western free societies. I don’t support #Trump total ban on #Muslims, but we should limit, and screen for only pro-western minded ones.

Energy Conservation is the Solution

We the people of the USA consume per capita 4 times the World average consumption, and 2 times the #2 consumer EU (European Union)! [One bright note, USA is the ONLY top consumer to reduce recently!] We can do better, by conserving. How? Drive more efficient cars and drive less (or public transport/bike/walk), make our homes more efficient (insulation, shading) and use HVAC heating/cooling wisely (dress appropriately for climate), line-dry clothing instead of machine, use shower water volume control to take ‘Navy Shower’, grow a garden and buy local/regional, and many more. Conservation is fun, and good for our country and planet.

Unity-Peace-Love

The recent events in North Africa and the Middle East, the attack of the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi, Libya on September 11, the mass riots, the burning of USA flags, are very disturbing. Certainly, the USA government/military is partially to blame. As Jason Nellis points out at http://libertarianreview.us/2012/09/13/how-to-prevent-embassy-attacks-and-terror-gary-johnsons-statement/ “We saw how we bred anti-American terrorists with our decades of intervention from Iran-Contra to the Iran-Iraq war (when we helped Iraq), to the Mujahideen and the Taliban (when we helped the Afghans against the Russians) to Al Qaeda, which we’ve all trained and provoked via the CIA, to selling arms to Saddam Hussein and training Osama bin Laden, to Somalia and Lebanon, to the recent revolutions in which we funded and sold arms to “rebel” (Al Qaeda, even acknowledged on FOX) terrorists from Egypt to Libya to… “. The USA should not be interfering with other countries so much, it usually comes back to bite us. A small percentage of people (some in government/military/intelligence(spys)/rich elite/media) are instigators of instability, for their own greedy purposes of power and control. This does not represent the wills of the USA people, who mostly want to live in peace with the world.

On the other hand, the Mideast Arabs/Muslims are very quick to anger, violence, and riots in the streets. They get angry about an obscure anti-Islam video, produced by an ex-con, in obscurity. Most in USA probably have not seen it. I agree that people should not slander or ridicule Religions, but USA is a very free & liberal society, which has its pros, and also its cons. There are many global media attacks on other religions (Christianity, Judaism, Buddhism), but does this cause people to violence? Look at the popular book and film “Da Vinci Code”, with the theory that the Merovingian kings of France were descendants from the bloodline of Jesus Christ and Mary Magdalene.

What’s the main problem? Divisiveness, groups, and gangs. People divided by their religions, it’s ridiculous! The purpose of all religions should only be to bring world happiness & peace, anything else is corruption. If your religion is preaching violence, there’s a problem. Other bad gangs: sexism (man vs woman), racism (white vs black), politics (liberal vs conservative), etc. The list is long! Stop the madness!

What’s the solution? Unity, peace and love! The vast majority of people want peace and harmony. Try to make decisions based not upon ‘what’s profitable for me’, but ‘what’s good for all’. Thanks for reading, let’s do & pray for a beneficial future of our world.
