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?

Uranus Is Huge!: Foundling: During exactly which eight years did Bush keep us safe?

Sometime before 1492?

Florida wasn't attacked once while Jeb was governor.

/I know. He specified 'George'. Maybe he's referring to HW's tenure as CIA Director.
//Nope. He's just a derp volcano in the midst of an eruption.


Hang on - I've got it.

George H.W. Bush (1 term)
George W. Bush (only counting 2nd term).

George Bush kept us safe for 8 years.

Dimensio: Pants full of macaroni!!: Diogenes: Pamela Geller @pamelagellerJihad in Boston: 12 dead, 50 injured ...... horrific Boston Marathon bombing

Facts all wrong and jumping to a conclusion.  Doesn't surprise me coming from that witch.

Have any of the usual folks started saying "There were 12 killed, NY Post said so, the Boston PD is still claiming only 3, WHAT ARE THE BPD HIDING?????" yet?

The government is hiding its secret resurrection technology.


That's because many of the Lazarus Pits pull a Pet Sematary on users.  I am given to understand, until the terrible bicycle accident on his twelfth birthday, despite his family connections, Li'l Dickie Cheney was quite a nice, gentle child with a soft voice who regularly cared for the neighborhood stray animals, stood up to bullies without using violence, and once organized a balloon fair for childhood leukemia patients.

If you average the deaths due to the 9/11 attacks (2,977)out over his entire presidency, you'll see how safe we were.

He only had 1.02 deaths per day. That's pretty good.

because some places tend to have more children near them, esp during the day.
because some places have the veneer of being "safer". the grocery store, the safe neighborhood that you live in, church.

And mostly because some places are supposed to be farkING QUIET. You're not even supposed to talk at the library, let alone blow shiat up.


True.  Explosive emissions of any kind, be them pyrological, scatological, flatulent, or nocturnal, are STRONGLY frowned upon in all the libraries and churches I am familiar with.  However, since Library Science considers itself a service industry, there's usually a warning or two before being asked to leave, though churches have been known to be less forgiving.

Is that over the course of the 8 years he was in office or the 5.5 years of him working in office and not on vacation clearing brush on his ranch?
