Times Square Targeted By Boston Marathon Bombing Suspects, FBI Says

Times Square Targeted By Boston Marathon Bombing Suspects, FBI Says

Commented Apr 25, 2013 at 16:34:10 in Crime

“Isn't it fantastic what can be achieved  under the heading of terrorism. *sarcasm* 24 unnecessary hours of media coverage providing no new information, keeping the public hostage, using terms such as "terrifying" and the like to control. My friends in Boston were griped with no such emotion the days following the bombing. And to answer your question, no I don't believe a recording would ever be provided.  Evidence would be too revealing. I'm no conspiracy theorist (though I dreadfully sound like one). The coverage has been dismal and pressure to capture suspects over the years has lulled the public into a false sense of security. "Go home. Nothing to see here. Everything's under control.' So to speak.”

“Is this lad's conversation being recorded or must the public swallow everything officials have to say?”

“Must we tilt our heads and question every innocent detail in our children's lives? Is there suddenly no recall from our own childhood? My older sister, when she wore a bathing suit at all, wore something similar. We also swam in chlorine-filled pools that stripped the color from my shorts by the end of the day and left me red-eyed. Those were the best summers.”

“"Life was put in danger" is a bit extreme don't you think? A "deadly situation." Hardly. Disney was caught with their pants down and Jose Martinez took them for a ride for not having a disability evacuation in place. He was awarded $8,000, lawyers probably took half. Disney will now update the ride.”

“"A country founded on the principals of liberty and equality." 'It's the fair and right thing to do." What a great bumper sticker! Love when phrases like that are whipped out. A gentle reminder how we are a slow moving country when it come to defining and appropriating said "liberty and equality." Gender pay gap prevails, homeless veterans on the rise, etc. but golly gee let's support the gays cause my numbers are down and shucks I found one in my family tree. I *get it* now.”

“It's always been ok to lick the glass and salivate over the lifestyles of the rich and famous with their "champagne wishes and caviar dreams" but times have changed. "Those people" now referred to as the 1%, are portayed as cartoonish figures as well. One would assume audiences would much prefer watching the trainwrecks and have-nots and be thankful for their drama-free lot in life.”

“I can go for all of them EXCEPT karaoke. No way. The very fact that I stink at karaoke is what makes me such a welcoming presense when I go with a group of friends. "Warm up all day" Are you mad?
