I'm at a loss for words. I'll never understand this mindset. Hopefully he failed.

He actually tries to justify it in the replies: https://twitter.com/MazenFreesyria/status/694505514902908928

+Allen Firstenberg First its "I regret that I have but one life to give for my country." which Hale never said. IN fact there is no official account of what Hale said. However 5 years later in May of 1781 the Boston Independent Chronicle ran a story that they claim to quote Hale as saying "“I am so satisfied with the cause in which I have engaged, that my only regret is, that I have not more lives than one to offer in its service.” As this too can not be verified its possible Hale said something similar and referencing the closest match to this that was written in 1712 in a play called "Cato the Younger" : In Act IV, scene 4, Cato says:

“How beautiful is death, when earn’d by virtue! 
Who would not be that youth? What pity is it 
That we can die but once to serve our country.”

Secondly, there is nothing heroic or patriotic about killing innocent people just because you are angry or mad and decide to do something astoundingly stupid and cowardly like commit suicide. A hero saves lives. A hero is Selfless. IF this douchebag hates life and all it has to offer and cant bring joy to others, then he should take some poison and shrivel up and die on his own so he can be pitied.

Virginia Republicans ask state to cancel "loyalty oath" requirement to vote in primary

The party wanted people to sign a pledge before they could vote on Super Tuesday. They are pulling the idea because of "bad publicity."

+Michael Ellis, back in the sixties when the Kingston Trio admonished us not to drink and drive "because you might hit a bump and spill the whole thing" people laughed. Today, not so much.

Host of Google Plus Week
Introduction
I'm the host of the web TV show Google Plus Week and the publisher of three newspapers in Virginia: Warren County Report, Frederick County Report and The Lynchburg Times. They have a combined readership of about 70,000.

I also host daily News & Technology shows on Google+ and YouTube Live

If you are looking for information on my studio setup click here.

I am a former teacher and director at Randolph-Macon Academy where I oversaw the school's installation of internet connectivity in every dormitory room and classroom on campus in the mid 90s. We were the first school in the nation to do so. I also founded the school's low-cost internet service R-MA OnLine.

In 1993 I left R-MA for a year to work as a database programmer and write a computer game that sold over 110,000 copies.

I am a former radio talk show host who still fills in from time to time for the noon hour on WFTR and WZRV in Front Royal.

I am the son of a U.S. foreign service officer and was born in Okinawa, Japan. I have lived in more than 20 countries, mainly in Europe, Asia and Africa.

I am a classic example of a creative person with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder. It is a curse I wouldn't wish on my worst enemy and the greatest gift I have ever received.
Bragging rights
I had a cameo as "the evil print reporter" in Real Housewives of Washington, D.C. I have lived all over the world from poverty-stricken countries in between civil wars to the fanciest neighborhood on Abbey Rd. in London. I prefer something in between.
