Jared Lee Loughner, the man believed responsible for the shooting of Arizona Rep. Gabrielle Giffords and the murder of at least five others Saturday, left his MySpace friends a “goodbye” before his page was apparently taken down.

His YouTube page, in which he lists both The Communist Manifesto and Mein Kampf among his favorite books, is still operational. Incidentally, Congresswoman Giffords is Jewish.

All the info on the page is listed in the past tense.

Loughner posted several confusing videos on his page, some of which deal with a “Mind Controller” and references to residents of Arizona Congressional District 8, Gifford’s district, as “illiterate”.

“I am able to control every belief and religion by being the mind controller,” Loughner wrote in one video post. “No! I won’t play debt with a currency that’s not backed by gold and silver! No! I won’t trust in God,” he said in another.

His “introduction” video to YouTube is below.
