skullkrusher: Epoch_Zero: skullkrusher: stop trolling dude

If I was trolling, you'd know it. I don't troll very well. I go way overboard to the point where it's obvious.

you're going overboard in suggesting we can live with guarantees of safety from bombing while being a free society


Nah, just clinging to my last shred of faith in humanity.

Life is sacred. All life is sacred, but when we get 'closer to home', we feel more protective of our own kind than others in such a way that, for a moment, other tragedies don't matter.

Such is our nature, for better or worse. These same people that can only feel bad for the Boston Bombs may feel just as bad for any other disaster, or war casualty.

MinkeyMan: Why do you give us a quick run down on how the utopia of yours could happen?


Don't be a dick.

I wasn't calling you a dick, that's simply how. Stop being dicks.

Dimensio: Please describe, specifically, how bombings may be infallibly averted without implementation of authoritarian policies.


Not making bombs in the first place. There are much more important issues that require our attention.
 
2013-04-16 01:32:17 PM
In all fairness, Bush didn't really make us any  less safe, either.  Unless you're a soldier, in which case you're taking a paycheck specifically not to be safe, with lifetime medical benefits specifically assuming you likely won't be... so my sympathy on that one is a bit limited.

Cyberluddite: I can't wait until Fartbongo's National Security Advisor goes before Congress and testifies about why they ignored that presidential daily briefing memo from about a month ago that was entitled "[NAME OF PERSON RESPONSIBLE] DETERMINED TO ATTACK BOSTON MARATHON CROWD BY PLACING HOME MADE BOMBS AT FINISH LINE."  Of course, he's not as attractive as Condoleeza Rice, so it probably won't get any coverage on the liberal media when he does.


That would be a really useful memo to have.  You realize that the WTC memo you're referencing had a list of a couple dozen places and a time window of "sometime after 1997" or something absurdly general like that, though, right?  It's on the order of me telling you that there will be a murder in New York City sometime in the next five years and then attempting to hold you responsible when that happens (statistically, it will) because "I warned you".

quick..make assault bombs illegal, that's what will make us safe

Are you so sure they were innocent? How do you define that anyway?

Innocents die in war, but I'd much rather their innocents die than ours.

and if ALL their innocents die, well then, war over

The math is hard for sure. Kill enough of the bad ones, without creating too many new enemies.

I don't envy anyone who has to make these choices. It's not like we can just walk into Pakistan and arrest these guys.

I was just foolin on ya

I really don't see how.  Israel has very much arranged their society around these types of threats and is still unable to block them all. I'd say it would require an army of bomb/weapon sniffing robots to be constantly on patrol, or a ridiculously huge police infrastructure with a blank check to spy on their citizens. (that second one isn't working out so well lately, Zing!)

In a cynical world one can expect that shameless a-holes will exploit any tragedy for political points.

In a farcical world one can expect the above, but with said exploitation being fact-free as well.

I'm not sure I would consider the Beltway Sniper incident as terrorism, any more than I'd consider the BK Killer or Son of Sam to be terrorists. It was a psychopath and his equally deranged catamite going on a killing spree. They didn't make any demands, they had no clear motives. Even Jack The Ripper at least was trying to get *some* message across.

I worked in Lanham at the time when one of the shootings occurred and I'll admit that it was a little creepy going out on the loading dock for a smoke in full view of Rt. 50 during that time, but it was pretty obvious at the time it was more a "batshiat crazy bastard" rather than someone trying to make a statement.

yeegrek: OK conservatives, we need to talk.  We, by which I mean the center and the left, let you have that one.  You're welcome.  We let you have that one not because we agreed with it, or thought it was even close to basic reality.  We let you have that one because we were all so very done with Bush and company.  The previous 8 years were traumatizing as hell to us.  Your man-child preznit absolutely drove this country into the ground.  The US was a flaming wreck when he turned the keys over to Obama.  Depression, jobs crisis, banking crisis, real estate crisis, two wars being lost.  We were done.  We were done with him, we were done fighting with you over him, we were done explaining to you how truly awful he was on every possible level.  We realized that you needed to have some shred of substance to hang your hat onto, to claim that you hadn't foisted a complete and total incompetent jackass onto the most powerful nation on Earth.  So when you claimed that he "kept America safe", we just rolled our eyes and just waited for Obama to take office.  We remember him totally ignoring the pre 9/11 warnings.  We remember how he didn't catch any of the anthrax mailers. We remember the multiple embassy attacks (but Benghazi!!). we remember Jim David Adkisson, Mohammed Reza, the Beltway Sniper, the Seattle Jewish Federation shootings, the LAX shootings, and all the people in Iraq that hate the US with every fibre of their being because the US killed their family members.

But if you really want to re-litigate this one, we're happy to do so.  No, he did not keep us safe, and fark you for even trying to whip that one past us.

Magorn: what_now: the_rev: what_now: This asshole set off a bomb near the Boston Public Library. Now I'm farking furious.

Not being smartass here... but... it was the bomb's proximity to a library that you find upsetting?

I find the whole thing upsetting. This is a special day- a celebration of the Revolutionary War, a random holiday that only we have, the Marathon, a 11am Red Sox game (played early enough in the season that we all still have some hope), and a street party. This is when spring starts in Boston.

This Marathon isn't just Kenyens and crazy hardcore runners, it's regular people who spend a year preparing for this for a charity- a friend of mine is 6"5; and 250lbs and a few years ago he finished, because he was running for a cause.

The finish line is right outside the oldest public library in the country for a reason.  "The Commonwealth Requires the Education of the People as the Safeguard of Order and Liberty".

SO decoding these clues we can build a profile of the Bomber based on the symbolism of what he attacked and when:

He attacked on Patriot's day, in an area rich with revolutionary symbolismm,  so clearly he's an Anti-American foreigner.  His bombs went off at the 26th mile, which was dedicated to the 26 victims of Newtown, so clearly he's a gun-rights nut/Sandy Hook denier.  His attack occured on April 15th -tax day  so he must have hated paying taxes.  The bombs exploded right near all the international flags  so he hates furriners and the UN.  He attacked outside the oldest public library in the country so he clearly hates both books AND socialism, and of course he interfered with a SOX game, so obviously he's a Yankee fan.

Putting all that into the Bat computer clearly tells me we are looking a Fundamentalist Muslim jihadist Tea Party member, who is also a "young earth" creationist and a white supremacist...how hard can THAT guy be to find?


Better call Markoff Cheney.

rufus-t-firefly: lennavan: There are an awful lot of news stories and attention paid to the Boston Marathon bombing, where (144? 176?) people were injured and 3 people died.  That was terror, demanded an immediate response and a statement from the POTUS.

Last weekend 26 people were shot in Chicago and 4 of them died.  235 people are shot and 33 people are murdered (on average) every day in the US.

I'm not saying what happened in Boston isn't bad.  But I don't understand how last weekend we felt safe and now suddenly we no longer feel safe.  It sure seems like we tolerate an awful lot of some sorts of violence whereas other types are super outrageous scary.

But guns are FREEDOM.


Every one of those people should be considered a national hero, because if this was the gunless utopia the gun grabbers want, they wouldn't have been shot, therefore they gave their lives for RKBA for the rest of us.

Limbaugh was asking the question today, after a lengthy recap of the Bill Ayers narrative, why nobody was asking if this was a left-wing group?

Um, because left-wing groups haven't been threatening or insinuating the need for insurrection and violence since day one of the black guy's term as president?
 
2013-04-16 03:03:30 PM
It's interesting that for the last 11 years, we have been told "We hafta go to war against al Qaida/terrorists/brown people with towels on their heads, they are TEH DEBIL and want to kill us all!" It's been drilled into us for over a decade that THEY are the enemy and that our Glorious Leaders are the only thing standing between us and a turban wrapped nuke showing up in our morning coffee.

Then an attack happens. Bombs go off. People are hurt and killed, and our Weeners is "Prolly terrorist Muslim radicals" and people are shocked - SHOCKED I say - at this jump to a conclusion. We have been conditioned for years to believe that "seekrit all kayak" is everywhere, lurking in the shadows, climbin' in our windows, snatchin' our people up, tryin' ta rape 'em.

In the 70's/80's, it was Russia - they had subs sitting just out of our reach with huge missiles pointed at our moms for years. They had secret spies waiting to blow up our dams, meltdown our reactors, and reset all of our VCRs so that they flash "12:00" again. THEY were the enemy. If anything bad happened, the first thought in our heads was, "It was probably the Russians."

You can't indoctrinate a culture to believe one thing, then act surprised when they follow that "training." That would be like Fatty Kim yelling at his citizens for accusing Americans of something evil after they have been brainwashed for half a century to believe that we are Satan's minions.

Also, to Alex Jones - you never go full retard.

One of the freepers in actualhuman's link mentioned that the attack took place on  "African Freedom Day."

But according to the link the freeper posted:

On the 25th of May 1963, thirty-one African Heads of state convened a summit meeting to found the Organization of African Unity (OAU). They renamed African Freedom Day "African Liberation Day" and changed its date to May 25th.
