    Such a tragedy, hate crime or is it ignorance. Another area of ignorance is with regard to the name of "KHAN" which is under the US no flight list as it is construed as a name of a person of faith in Islam.

    Actually the name "KHAN" originated in Mongolia. In the year 1162 AD a person was born in Mongolia who later became a fierce warrior and conqured many lands in Asia and Middle East. His birth name was Ternuji. He was a Sharnanist meaning followers of spirit worship. In the Mongolian language Khan means "Chief" and Genghis means "Universal". His name was changed to "Genghis Khan". He had maintained a very large "Harem" (Living place for women – his concubines) from which very many offsprings were born. Today after over 800 years they have multiplied in to millions. His descendants identify themsleves by suffix "KHAN" .

    This is not about guns!!! This is about the GOP's message.... Their constant shout of hate the President... the country is being destroyed... we are being infiltrated being pumped out by Sean Hannity, Rush Limbaugh, Ann Coulter, Bill O'Reilley (Although he has toned it down some) resulted in Wisconsin. These seething angry white men who have nothing to fear from diversity are taking the message literally. The GOP message trying to get white Americans to "Take back America" and hate Obama is causing xenophobia. On a national level and in the wrong ears people get killed. Sikhs are a peaceful people and did not deserve this. Hope Michelle Bachman is happy

      All religion teaches peace.
      Religion is used as a political tool to spin hate. Media in America is run by group of people spinning hate.
      We in American need to stop hearing our media, get rid of our guns and go back to the old family values.

    The NASA story on flight director Bobak Ferdowsi is more proof of Obama's "in-sourcing" of foreign workers who take American jobs!!! It's nice to know that my tax dollars are paying for foreigners to obtain higher education at prestigious universities!!! Especially when there are 15 million other well qualified individuals that need a good paying job!!!

    Obama must GO!!!!

    • Wake up

      Ignorance and gun happy people are be blamed for the demise of the American dream. The America dream became a nightmare since Bush took office. This is no longer about which party you are with. This is about the survival of America. Our country is bleeding. Wake up.
