“Oh Crap, who're we going to war against now?”



That's the first thing my lovely wife said when she heard about the Boston bombing. Then we tried to figure out if we had any friends or relatives in harms way.

I've a son-in-law who works in Boston, but he didn't have to work on Monday. Then there's a college buddy of mine who used to run the marathon and was back in training. No idea if he qualified and competed this year. We haven't heard anything, so I'm hoping no news is good news.

Of course, a lot of people's friends and relatives were not so lucky. My heart goes out to them.

Every since September 11, 2001 many of us have been leery of the political fallout of these types of events. Someone somewhere will try to push a political agenda. After 9/11 the United States got involved in two wars. No wonder my wife had the reaction she did.

Since 2001 we've been living in a ever more restrictive police state. Apparently they can't keep us safe, but they can limit our freedom.

It's very early and few facts are sure. However, judging from past performance, people are watching closely to see how the government reacts.

  1. I don't think we'll even need to GUESS how the government will react. It even asked for more gun control when aircraft were taken over with BOX-CUTTERS on 9/11!

  2. My reaction exactly. There will be some group demonized and "hunted down" for this, though I can't believe they'd still try to finger "Muslim extremists". My gut tells me they will go with "right wing extremists". Fits nicely into the current gun confiscation plans. Yes, I call false flag on this. Too damn convenient, timing just right, and nevermind the impossibility of the whole thing. I reckon security was pretty tight at the finish line of the Boston Marathon. Hell, the Testicle Squeezer ASSociation was herding folks through pornoscanners at the Stupid Bowl, you're telling me security was any less for the Boston Marathon? An event on par with the Stupid Bowl? I raise my B.S. flag...

    1. The police state has failed. Can we have our democracy back now?

  3. Too convenient at a time when the PTB want to issue more restrictions.
