    So now Bostonians

    "have no claim to being any more civilized than any of the "monsters" who carry out these acts."

    Your mind is so open your brain fell out.

    •  Get lost, troll. (0+ / 0-)

      Go away, learn how to read and how to think, spend about 10 years doing a whole lot of both, and then come back and join the rest of the grownups.

      To put the torture behind us is, inevitably, to put it in front of us.

      •  You draw an equivalence (0+ / 0-)

        between the victims and the terrorists,
        and then you call me a troll?

        Its weird that you are so much smarter than me, but you resort to insults and name calling instead of defending your point.

        It's not very complicated. Is it appropriate to say that white Boston catholics "have no claim to being any more civilized than any of the "monsters" who carry out these acts." ?

        The "monsters," (yes, you put that in quotations) meaning the bombers, are just as civilized as the folks running in the marathon, according to you. Please, enlighten us.

      •  Who's the troll? (0+ / 0-)

        You make a fairly outrageous comment, and when someone responds you label them a "troll."  You need to learn a bit about the natural history of trolls.

        •  This isn't my first run-in with the nasty (0+ / 0-)

          little beast, which popped its head up out of nowhere a few weeks ago. It asks to be enlightened -- but enlightening this particular poor benighted creature would be the work of years, and would certainly require a level of saintly patience that is well beyond anything I claim for myself.

          •  Look, I'm here to help. (0+ / 0-)

            Hating America is so 2007. I know sometimes we all get stuck on things, and we just need a friend to say hey, I care about you, and you're embarrassing me. I'm that friend.

            And you know what? I understand why you're lashing out at me, and I just want you to know that I'll still be here when you cool down.
