All these idiots who think they're being so oppressed by the government need to be shipped off to North Korea.

He looked like he had issues based on the pic someone posted

How can a picture of a guy playing a guitar indicate he had issues?

Who says there is a creator greater than the IRS? Do tell why he looked like he had issues.

Oh Yes there is a Higher Power greater than the IRS no doubt,Higher than the US government or any government for that matter, Higher than the world and we will all get our chance to meet with our Creator.

Yes it is very evident he had issues. You have to be able to look beyond the physical...everyone possess a certain je ne se quais....an auroa if you will. He looked off...it is very very apparent.

You are WAY out of line, in nearly everything you have posted in this thread. You're basically cheerleading for this sick idiot who flew his plane into an occupied office building.

There is nothing else to "understand" in his sick twisted mind other than he thought he was justified in flying his plane into an occupied office building.

There is NO excuse. And anyone who thinks this guy is anything other than the antithesis of a "hero" needs to be seriously analyzed by law enforcement officials, for the safety and welfare of the American public.

There's a difference between burning an empty house (that the IRS is going to take) & starting a fire with people (loved ones) inside.
Um...he flew his plane into an occupied office building. I don't think any "difference" you somehow find in burning down his house with or without occupants matters since he obviously has NO respect for human life. There's nothing else to it.

No, he isn't. Far far from it.

I like how this guy tried to kill innocent civilians in the exact same method used by al Qaeda, and you think the 'name-calling' in this madman's ramblings is "a little over the top."

After Stack's obvious intentions, does it really matter?

It doesn't matter what the hell the guy thought. Right or wrong. The fact that he tried to kill dozens of innocent people to prove a point makes him a homicidal maniac. A pariah to society.

Don't try to justify his reasons. His actions are what matter, and they were f'd up.

Life's f'd up. We all know tax sucks, but it pays for the society we live in. There isn't one aspect of your life that tax payers didn't in some way help or contribute in. Not one. Taxes suck, but you should be proud as an American that your taxes are put to use making your life safe and livable.

It isn't fair? So, what exactly is fair in life? Go cry me a river. Sheesh!

Also, don't you realize you're basically encouraging this type of action? You are encouraging this type of behaviour by doing exactly what the nutjob wanted: calling attention to his cause.

You know who else does that? Suicide bombers. Good job proving that doing what they do works!
Exactly.

I honestly can't believe some people's seemingly friendly attitude and acceptance towards this nutjob and his thoughts, behavior, and actions. It disgusts me.

I'm no fan of the IRS either, and many of the US's government's actions and policies, but I have just enough sanity to realize that absolutely nothing justifies flying a plane into an office building.

I really wouldn't mind if Homeland Security put you on one of those no-fly lists, so we can ensure that we have at least one less twisted/wicked mind in this country.

Pathetic.
This is just what I told my husband. This guy was a cowardly idiot. He's dead and now his wife is left to clean up the mess. How selfish can one person be.
