  •  What homegrown death squads? (0+ / 0-)

    Do you have information we don't?

    Have you shared it with the authorities?

    •  Did you really think these homegrown nuts (0+ / 0-)

      would stay down on the border and only target Hispanics and little brown children?

      And it's okay for the US military to train them to hate and kill the foreign Iraqis or Afghans or whomever happens to be the terrorist of the day.

      But, it's all self-contained "over there" and not here?

      Call them what they are... homegrown death squads.

      Last, but not least, the Boston Police Chief said to "make your conclusions" when asked if this was an act of terrorism.  So, I did.

      And, I'm saying the local media will NOT call these guys "terrorists" if they are NOT Al Qaeda. They will be "disgruntled" or peeved or something downgraded from terrorist.

      •  You made reference to homegrown death squads. (0+ / 0-)

        I presumed that you knew something.

        All mouth (or fingers), I guess.

        •  Just call it what it is ... terrorism (0+ / 0-)

          That's what should happen.

          Even if it is the local homegrown boys. The conservatives have pushed back to stop that label from being applied to their brand.

          •  ON that we can agree. It is a clear terrorist act (0+ / 0-)

            no matter who did it.  

            I almost added and no matter what the motivation.  
            I can't conceive of any motivation that would render this bombing anything but a terror attack, but...that's the logic that gets people to believe that the pyramids couldn't be built without help from space aliens, so I hestitate just a bit.
