Boston Marathon Bombing "Suspects" and other Random Thoughts

Locking down a whole city to apprehend one wounded teenager seemed a bit much; appeals to the collectivist mindset of today's politician. You know, "our children," it takes a village, etc.

After all, citizens are wards of the government and can't be expected to participate in their own security.

I'm just guessing, but the Dzhokar Tsarnaev would have been caught sooner had the citizens of Boston been about their business as usual. Every person a sensor, you know.

The boat owner spotted Tsarnaev after police suspended curfew. As Taylor West put it so well on Twitter:
So lockdown is lifted because they can't find the suspect...which allows boat guy to leave his house...and find the suspect.
Our newest Jihadist hero, now receiving medical attention for wounds from a gunfight with police, will certainly be assured due process of the law.

Here he is with backwards ball cap shortly after placing the bomb that killed 8 year old Martin Richard and severely injured many more in the photo.

I can see the Obama Administration doing cheetah flips to figure out how to spin this into a workplace violence issue, or better yet, new legislation to enlarge the government's role in making marathons safer.

In an unnecessary and gratuitous speech, President Obama said "All in all it's been a tough week. But we've seen the character of our country once more."

And with a president this soft on identifying the enemy in the war on terror, it's certain the country will get to demonstrate it's character more often.

Human carnage aside, it's been tough for Obama, who was really talking about legislative set backs on gun control and the coming "trainwreck" on Obamacare. Time inadvertently got it right, noting:
President Barack Obama pledged to seek answers for the victims of the Boston Marathon explosions about the motives and the planning behind the deadly blasts, even as he acknowledged that the capture of a second suspect brought to a close a trying five days for his presidency and for the nation.
Motives? Seriously? Here's a clue: the bombers were from Chechnya.

Will justice be swift in the Boston Marathon bombings? Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, the architect of 3,000 American deaths, has yet to see trial.

What about Major Hassan, who gunned down 13 of his fellow soldiers at Fort Hood? Still untried.

So forgive a little scepticism when the president said of the bombers, "We will hold you accountable."

A big problem was not holding Obama and the Democrat-collectivist-government complex accountable in the last election.

Since we're speculating about causes of the Boston bombings, I'll blame low information voters.

Prince Harry, Beyonce, Bengazi and other Random Thoughts

Matt Lauer and the Today Show panel were aghast at a Prince Harry interview where the Prince talks about killing Taliban.

Seems that's what soldiers are for, isn't it? Though you wouldn't know it from the reactions of the progressive bedwetters on the panel.

Obama fangirl Beyonce is catching flak for lip synching the National Anthem at the inauguration. On learning of Obama's re-election she famously instagrammed "Take That Mitches."

The young lady seems vulgar and classless - like her dancing. I can't sing and dance, but then again, Beyonce shouldn't opine beyond the limits of her entertainer education.

Speaking of classless, how about our president. Trotting out schoolkids to push anti-gun legislation (and executive fiat) is about as low as you can get. Rush Limbaugh called the kids "human shields."

I like Limbaugh, alot. Obama, not at all.

Wasn't Hillary's performance at the Bengazi hearings stunning? Reminded me of a schoolgirl brought before the principal for cheating on a history test.

Clinton's yelling, crying and equivocating was better suited to a 17 year-old than an American secretary of state.

At least she took responsibility. Much like Janet Reno did after ordering the assault that resulted in the deaths of 74 Americans at Waco, including women and children.

In other words, nothing happened and no one lost their job.

Four brave Americans are still dead, but 2/3 of those polled still esteem Mrs Clinton highly.

If the term "low information voters" ever applied, it's here.

In this age of Obama, seems we've got lots of low information voters. Many folks are starting to notice their social security payments go up.

Wait until the full weight of Obamacare taxes kicks in.

Mr and Mrs Harbaugh have a dilemma. Their sons square off as head coaches in the Super Bowl. Seems hard work, genetics and luck pushed the Harbaugh boys to the top of their profession.

Congratulations to the Harbaughs on this most American dream come true.
