I can't believe the number of people commenting on places like CNN blaming this on Obama.

I want to personally slap the shiat out of these people. Each and every one of them.

I don't think they need talking points.  Just blame everyone you loathe for everything, regardless, without explanation or facts.  It's all about hate, not an agenda.

I don't care about conspiracy theories, but what exactly is meant by 'false flag'? 
Is this a holdover from the NFL replacement refs?

Really. No idea. 
I used to listen to George Noory a bunch when I was on third shift and had hours & hours alone. LOL-factory usually. Alex Jones is a twit.

poot_rootbeer: sheep snorter: Ring leaders to be rounded up for this domestic terrorism by the TeaParty:
Limbaugh
Beck
Koch bros
Bachmann
And the rest.

Come back and troll tomorrow, kid.  Now's not the time.


There is good in a tragedy.

I've found three new people to ignore. However, the sheep snorter was already ignored. Don't ignore those who are different. Don't ignore those who have a point of view you can't agree with. Don't ignore people who have different favorite teams or a different political party than you have.

No...

Save the ignore for the stupid. Save it for the people whom conversing with isn't going to help. Save it for those people who aren't worth the air they consume. Save the ignore feature for the pathetic.

Surprisingly, there are still many people who fit on the ignore list even if you use it only to ignore those who are painfully stupid, stupid beyond compare, and those who somehow manage to have a negative value on the planet.

Just think, they're here often so they're probably surviving off of "disability" due to mental trouble. We're paying them our tax dollars. Responding to them only encourages them, if we discourage them by not giving them attention they may go do something more beneficial. It is unlikely but it could happen.

Great Porn Dragon: Mojongo: The use of ball bearings as shrapnel sounds similar to the Olympic Park Bomber, Eric Rudolph, who I believe used nails in his backpack bombing attempt to discredit the U.S. in the eyes of the world because of his opposition to abortion. Hopefully the perp/perps of this senseless act of violence will not take as long to catch.

...Unfortunately, this.  (If anything, what's come out about the bomb design and plans show it has a lot of the classic hallmarks of a bomb out of the Army of God terror manual--black powder pipe bomb in a backpack, shrapnel like nails or ball bearings, secondary bombs meant to take out emergency management personnel responding to the first bombing.)

Though I can't say for sure its the Army of God, because a lot of "fellow travellers" of the Army of God have adopted similar tactics, including at least one Christian Identity-linked bomber (whose bomb was fortunately found before they could detonate it...at an MLK Day parade).  The Army of God also does keep some connections with more explicitly tax-protester type "Christian Patriot" militias via the Constitution Party and has picked up at least some of its terminology from Christian Identity groups (the concept of "Phinehas Actions" being a euphemism for domestic terrorism against a targeted group, for one).

That said...I can't say what group this was, but (again, based on my own research on these groups--and this is something I do professionally) if this isn't from SOME far-right group with either a history of domestic terrorism or close connections with a group with a history of domestic terrorism, I'll eat my hat.  (Pretty much my guess is either Army of God (though usually they aren't so tax-protester-type, if it were Army of God it'd have to be a Boston-based cell basing this on Patriot Day...that said, the Army of God DOES have a history of precisely this sort of action aimed at international sports events in crowds, most notoriously the Olympic Park Bombing) or a previously un ...


So, ball bearings means it's probably some right wing terrorist group.  You probably think the biased rantings from the SPLC is worth paying attention too, also?
It's a wonder you have enough brain cells to keep breathing.

"The man in the cowboy hat is Carlos Arredondo. He is an immigrant citizen of the U.S. who lost his son in Iraq and is now a peace activist and speaker. When the explosions happened, you can see that he did not hesitate to run towards the chaos and help, obviously trying to get this poor man out of there and to hold a tourniquet on one of his severed legs. Later, he was being interviewed, visibly shaking from shock and holding an American flag, soaked in the blood of other people. Carlos Arredondo's selflessness and bravery should be known and applauded."

I'm fairly sure Westboro has already said this is punishment for Mass. allowing gay marriage, so close enough.  It's really amazing how much damage I was able to do considering I didn't even know about this until several hours after it happened and even though I haven't had sex in months.

I do apologize to all the straight folks that were killed and maimed because I chose to be attracted to men instead of women.

I just figured something out for the tinfoil-hat crowd. According to this source (link in spanish), former Mexican president Felipe Calderon was amongst the crowd. He was the one that started using the army against the cartels (the reason why the violence in Mexico has started to grow).

If this was caused by a drug cartel that wanted him dead, well... You guys wanted US troops in Mexico?.

Sid_6.7: ACunningPlan: Below is your point in which you claim the IRA does not attempt to kill random civilians. You'll notice in my reply, I do state this is very unlikely to have anything to do with Irish terrorism. However, having lived through both the Provos & the UFF's campaigns of NOT targeting civilians, I do disagree with you. By all means, please feel free to point out how I have no idea what I'm talking about.

Are you capable of reading multiple sentences as part of a paragraph?

Let's see, I wrote:

The IRA does not, generally speaking, attempt to kill random civilians. It has happened in the past, but most attacks are at infrastructure, not people, and they call ahead to warn that people should be evacuated.

There, that's where I said that they have, in the past, attempted to kill random civilians.

The word "it", you see, refers to the previous sentence, and is a pronoun representing "the IRA attempting to kill random civilians".

Can you comprehend that? Is it too difficult for you? Should I use smaller words?


No, I understand you perfectly.  You think planting bombs in public places and blowing up "infrastructure" - regardless of any casualties - is a perfectly acceptable means of achieving an objective.  That infrastructure being shopping centres, parades, bins, office buildings, etc. etc.  And apparently calling in a vague & sometimes deliberately timed to catch the police warning, completes the process of exculpatory justification-after-the-fact for you.  But do have a go with smaller words if it makes you feel better.
