Just shoot'n their guns for no particular reason
I do a lot of work with the local health department so while I won't say there was a justification for Syed Rizvan Farook and his bride Tashfeen Malik to murder his colleagues in a hot-blooded, jihadi inspired massacre, there probably was a rational for his actions.
Syed Farook, born in the United States, worked as an environmental health specialist for San Bernardino County, inspecting restaurants for health violations, according to authorities and a website that tracks public employees. As part of his job, he also inspected public pools at locations including apartment and senior housing complexes and country clubs. 
These health inspectors have a tough job - the building I have to visit is a very industrial bland brick cube warren that shouts GOVERNMENT and, if my experience is universal, deadens the life spark of  its employees. These folks push A LOT of paper, charge exorbitant fees for licenses, over regulate and use those regulations to harass and close down businesses. They deal with food service (cafeterias and restaurants) and other institutional environments like school systems and old folks homes so they're NOT shiny happy people. Syed probably fit right in with his grumpy, over-"worked", hated fellow employees and that allowed him to fly "under the radar" so to speak i.e. "he's not a terrorist, he's just another government worker" - all that being said, Syed's motive is still unknown.

But even if we can speculate about Syed's "triggers" it's still sort of hard to understand the rational of the Mrs. who, in solidarity with her health inspector husband, suited up and capped people who had earlier this year thrown her a baby shower. Especially when you consider the high risk chance of certain death to her person and the fear Republicans have of orphans. Oh well, I'm sure she had her reasons too but at the moment they're unknown - we don't even know what she looks like.

America is the mass murder capital of the world and this fact really gets under peoples skin - makes them angry and accusatory. The good people a PBS have even mapped it out for dramatic effect using data points from a website called - FYI, if you're considering mass murder then taking out 4 or more people will put you on the map. You're probably thinking, naah, I don't need the publicity and recriminations that come along with mass murder but think again psycho because if you actually look at the data you'd see that you can probably pull off your bang-bang jollies without consequence. Turns out that of the 353 mass shooting that occurred in the USA in 2015 only 67 of them have an identified alleged shooter but for all the rest of them the perp is "unknown" - you basically have an 80% chance of getting away with it. But when you "go postal" choose your location carefully because it turns out that States with the highest per capita gun ownership have the lowest mass murder rate - A state with strict gun control like California, Illinois or New York are your best bet for pitching a waist 'em all shit fit. The reasons why the high gun states are safer and the gun-control states are more mass-murder friendly is unknown.

Psycho Killer, qu'est-ce?

I came into this wicked world in the early 1960's and as a result I have born witness to America's 50 Years of Failure which includes the modern age of mass shootings by psychotic men who "go off" on a given day, for no reason at all (except "guns"), and kill scads of innocent bystanders. Back in August of 2019 a KOTCB blog post titled " Reciprocity City " explored a young  gunman  named Patrick Crusius  who drove 9 hours through the west Texas flatlands to shoot up El Paso, TX The KOTCB has commented on many of these shootings, bombings and knifings over the years -  The roots of the Boston Marathon Bombing ,  the Emanuel AME Church shooting ,  Syed Rizvan Farook and his bride Tashfeen Malik ,  Ft. Lauderdale Airport shooting ,  Nick Cruz lovesick Parkland shooting ,  the Iranian, PETA activist, Vegan Bodybuilder, YouTuber's attack on Google  and now this very oddly timed and placed "lone wolf" attack on Walmart shoppers.

The Real Story with Gretchen Carlson

She was "sexy", but "too much hard work." I'm a regular Fox & Friends viewer (mostly in protest of the other insipid morning programs like Today and Good Morning America) so over the years I've gotten to know Gretchen Carlson pretty well. Stuck between Steve and Brian she always seemed a prudish scold with an irritating, self-righteous demeanor that I simply put up with because I figured some people in the Fox audience actually liked her persona. It was obvious that Steve and Brian did not, but they were stuck with her like so many talking heads and had to make the best of it - which they did. Besides, she was no worse than any of the other women on morning show TV - I mean, you're only going to find a certain kind of person to do this kind of work and that kind of person is the Gretchen Carlson kind. Then, one day, she was gone and replaced by Elisabeth Hasselbeck and the F&F ratings began to climb, and climb and climb - in two months view

Who voted for this guy?

Who voted for this guy? It's been ten days since the results of the Maricopa County, Arizona ballot audit were released to the public and presented at a hearing held by the state senate. This exercise in democratic accountability had been going on for months and, if reports are to be believed, was completed well over a  month before the September 24th hearing where   overwhelming proof of an illegitimate election was presented to lawmakers . The audit showed multiple irregularities, fake ballots, duplicate counts, errors, omissions and egregious acts of sabotage and obstinance by the Maricopa County board of supervisors who did everything they could to withhold and destroy evidence of wrongdoing from the citizen sleuths. The misfeasance of Arizona's political leaders was clearly defined, shocking and (for some) beyond belief but somehow these facts were discovered, organized, packaged and suppressed for MONTHS by the Cyber Ninjas who were attempting to "get to the bottom&q
