Boston Marathon bombing

I thought about this a lot, wondering what (if anything) to say.

Well, I don't really have much to say about it.  My outrage has apparently been used up by one dramatic act of violence after another.

Now my only thought when anything of this sort happens (and after I am fairly sure no one I personally know* was harmed) is "what will the goons who call themselves 'government' do with this?  How will it affect me and my loved-ones?"  That is, if the FBI (or another federal terrorist group) wasn't behind it like they have been behind so many "foiled terror plots" in the past few years.  "Plots" that would have never gone anywhere without them pushing, prodding, and providing manpower, ideas, and materials.

I am under much more danger from the government extremists than from any other kind of "terrorist".  And I know it, and if you are paying attention, you know it is true for yourself, too.

Added: I've seen speculation that this will be used as justification for "laws" allowing the TSA or someone to grope people in the streets.

*I know someone who was running, and he wasn't physically hurt.  I am glad of that.


  1. "Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me."

    It's no great leap to consider this event as yet another FBI-fostered "plot" that happened to get away from the "good" guys such that it actually gets carried out, it's not like it hasn't happened several times before.

    So even if it is a lone-nut anti-social left-wing or right-wing, what does that prove?

    Only that perfect safety is an illusion, and giving up yet more liberty in search of perfect safety is insane.

  2. My first thought was also, "Oh S***, how will the government use this to ratchet up their control over us?"

    I guess we should be glad that no firearms were used, since firearms are the Big Hysteria Of The Day.
