This, friends, is an absolute clinic on how to ask stupid questions.

This guy has the perfect attitude and the perfect responses to the questions, even the bullshit "Do you love America?" questions.

@6,

You guys have already got a whole dumb, utterly pointless and barely readable thread that you've hijacked with your bickering. Give it up.

Who wants to start a campaign to get this guy on Dancing with the Stars?

This guy is the very embodiment of the American dream. He should have his own TV show,

Truer words never told.

Jesus wept. About half those journalists should be fired from the human race for gross stupidity.

Reminds me of a "MTV Jackass" stunt some kids were doing a few years back, one of them was Japanese and the father comes out "Im sorry my son is stupid". Didnt blame MTV, didnt blame the media, didnt blame peer pressure.

@10 - Thank you. I was going to tell them both to go to their rooms without any dessert, but thought better of it because sometimes mad dogs turn on their own.

I cannot (nor, do I imagine can anyone here) begin to fathom the combination of sorrow, rage, fear, and shame this man must be feeling right now. He is brave as hell to go public.

@10 and 18, fair point. I'm sure his mom is sick of him grumbling in her basement, and would rather he just go back to jacking off to Internet porn.

I'd vote for Uncle Tsarni. Does he want to be Mayor of Seattle?

This guy is putting on a clinic on how to talk about mass murderers. If we spent more time ridiculing these people as the losers they are, fewer young men would find these kinds of actions appealing.

@20 - You're part of the problem, too, jackass. Leave your shit in that other thread. It's yours. Your stink is on it. Can we have just one nice thread, please?

Exactly. Don't call them "inhuman" or "monsters." Call them what try are: pathetic losers.

He should start a business straightening out wayward youths. No one is going to fuck with Uncle Tsarni.

Ahem, I believe I have coined the slogosphere term for these killers: Selfish assholes.

Uncle StraightTalk agrees.

Sad, though not unexpected, how this man, who seems genuine but whom we really know nothing about, goes public and says the right things in the right ways, and people want to make him a celebrity, because I guess that's what America is supposed to be about.

If what Uncle Tsarni says about his nephews is accurate, then their motives probably fall along the same line as the Columbine shooters, Klebold and Harris.

Just anger and hatred not really directed anywhere in particular.

The strange thing is that the older one has been described by former high school classmates as being popular and "a sweetheart" (heard on NPR this morning).

i prefer that he doesn't get his own tv show, doesn't become a politician or a spokesperson. his compact, focused, caring anger has peaked in this performance. let him go back into normal life knowing we have such badass De Niro types living amongst us, not over us.

also, immigrants make me think of good home cooked food. is that a bad stereotype?

This is a better analysis than you'll hear from any pundit.

@34

Actually, not all of us in this world chase after the almighty dollar like it's crack. Some of us actually have values and choose professions that do good in this world and don't pay well. But you money-hungry high-earning capitalists wouldn't know about values. All you do is pop boners for paychecks. The almighty dollar is your religion. Talk about "losers"... get a fucking life.
