You've probably heard by now, somebody set off two bombs at the finish line of yesterday's Boston Marathon, killing at least three people and injuring 140 others, many of them critically. Another.senseless act of terrorism, proving nothing, other than the inhumanity and barbarity of the perpetrator(s).
President Obama said we will find out who did this and bring "the full weight of justice" down upon them. I hope so. The President also said we will find out why this was done. That's all well and good, but I'm to the point where I care less and less about the "why". I'm just tired of this crap. Whatever the reason is why the bomber(s) chose to randomly target innocent people, there is no cause that will explain away or justify such actions. Whatever the "cause" was, assuming there was one, that cause was set back immeasurably yesterday. I don't much care whether the bomber was motivated by Islamic Yee-hawd (9/11 and many other attacks), the right to life (Olympic bombing), anti-government rebellion (Timoty McVeigh), pushback against technology (Unabomber), or protesting a war (Weather Underground). I don't care, because once you kill innocent people for your frigging "cause", you become nothing but a murderer. All that matters at that point is thinning your murderous hide from the human herd. My view is 'WE have rules in society, killer(s), and YOU broke them. Sayonara'.
While I'm on the subject of "cause" bombers and killers, these barbarous murderers of the innocent should definitely NOT end up getting jobs as college professors, where they can influence our youth, as have Weather Underground members William Ayers, Bernardine Dohrn, and Kathy Boudin. Are you kidding me ? Why is this even being debated, much less endorsed ? The answer is "NO, radical killer, you may NOT teach our kids !!! Get outta here !!!". This only seems to happen when the radical killer in question is a LEFT-WING radical killer. It would never be tolerated any other time. Can you imagine if Timothy McVeigh had served 30 years in prison, got released, and then became a professor at Harvard ??? You can't imagine it, because IT WOULD NEVER HAPPEN IN A MILLION YEARS.
I heard on the news this morning that sixteen terrorist attacks have been thwarted since 9/11 in New York City alone. Sixteen. In one city. I'm no expert, but that sounds like a lot. I need some help from my liberal friends here. Is there any action we can take that might save even one innocent life from these terrorists ? And don't say "pull out of the Middle East". I know that already. I'm driving at something else. Is there anything we can do to keep these weapons of mass destruction (the terrorists) away from our citizens ? After Newtown, we heard a lot about banning guns from the left. We still do. The banners didn't seem to mind that their ban would also take away the rights of millions of law-abiding Americans. I ask these same liberal gun banners now, should we ban people from the Middle East from entering this country ? If not, why not ? Sure, we'd be banning the law-abiding people along with the handful of terrorists we'd stop, but isn't that the exact same logic y'all used regarding guns ? Isn't that the logic behind the "if we can save even one life" standard ? The vast majority of gun owners never kill anyone, just as the vast majority of Middle Easterners never kill anyone. I'm talking strictly to the liberals who wish to ban guns, not to those Democrats who believe in background checks. That's a different matter. I look forward to an answer to my question, though I'll be surprised if I get one.
I pray for the victoms in Boston. God bless them. You know, I never wanted to run the Boston Marathon before (why run 26 miles when you can drive ?)....but suddenly, I kinda DO.
