Well said, we should work together to stop criminals, and not treat good Americans as criminals.

Grossman's arguments about Coakley not buying into stupid ideas is really telling me that Coakley isRead More simply smarter than Grossman. Also, if smart guns were really a good idea, our police would be using them. If you need a watch to fire a gun, people are going to store that gun with the watch fastened around the trigger guard so it will not get misplaced. These are gimmicks, not solutions to a problem.

How long are we going to keep throwing parties and concerts keeping the memory of this terroristRead More attack alive and fresh? I see t-shirts, bumper stickers, tattoos, flags, banners, news stories all day everyday, music, large gatherings etc etc....can we move on? Allow victims to heal in private and stop talking about this terrorist and what he did all day. I'll never understand that about our society.

Sounds like these federal 50 guys are getting their training and personal transaction skills fromRead More the IRS (Obama's Disgrace). An admonishment and the chance to pay for the product is definitely the way this should have been handled. Hey chief, report Monday for some retraining on common sense.

John B has to be a lib because he thinks backwards. If this guy intentionally refilled his sodas atRead More regular intervals, then fine, make him pay a reasonable penalty, which is perfectly justified if he did do something wrong. But, JB is defending a KGB-style operation, here. This is what the Bush and Obama (and quite possibly, Clinton) administrations got into motion. And, of course Obama is taking it to the max. Our entire government needs to be completely cleaned out, reduced in size and replenished with real people - not the Muppets!

Falls into the exception to free speech category- that you are not allowed to yell fire in anRead More crowded theater. One does not get to "'replicate" a terrorist act which killed and wounded people-at the same exact place, using the same medium-and think its artistic expression. He is lucky Boston PD didn't take him out. That took restraint.

Double edge sword. I applaud the fact that he knew kids everywhere would blindly and naively seeRead More the cover of rolling stone and be affected by it in a way that supports and encourages and dare I say, idolizes a terrorist. On the other end, he broke the law and there's WAY too much of that getting swept under the rug. At the end of the day I'm happy he did it. The image of him bloody is more shocking than that ridiculous picture on RS. I think regardless of how much exposure he got, it worked for the greater good.
Snow April 17, 2014 at 05:19 pm
I'm going with hawk's opinion. What he did counteracted the Rolling Stone cover, showing the realRead More truth of what happened. Though it would be nice to know if he received money for his photos or just released them- anyone know?

@DennisN......LOL! You made my day! Everything I said was 100% True. For some reason the People ofRead More Mass will vote Democrat even if its not a Good choice. They did surprise me with some Republican Governors though. 1972 Mass goes for McGovern. Only State in the Union. Nixon paid us back by closing several bases. I'm sure your a big Obama fan as well. I promise you he will go down in history as the worst President in Modern times and maybe even All Time. Mass will always be home for me Dennis, sorry. We will just have to agree to disagree. I can do that. I don't think you can. By reading your post to me and others I can tell your pretty impressed with yourself. I'm not. How do you think Mary Jo Kopecknys family felt when Mass kept electing the guy who killed their daughter. 6 hours of missing time Teddy couldn't explain. Or how about the families of those underage boys felt when Men in their 50s were having sex with their kid? Not a day in jail. Then, Barney and Gerry kept getting reelected. Its not up to the US Government to control every aspect of our life Dennis. Obama, Holder, Pelosi, Harry Reid are all criminals hiding the truth from the American People. Agree To Disagree if you want but sometimes the truth hurts. PS I am not a Republican either

Tom you are obviously an internet TROLL! And Genius I never said she would be a GOOD Leader!!! IRead More simply stated she might have put a stop to or slowed what has happened to this country. Given the fact that she certainly was well aware of all the players in Washington DC. But this of course of my own opinion and I am a realist and understand that there are those that believe there is NOTHING WRONG with the state of this nation. Of course I might also believe those individuals are living in Egypt on Denial!!! (Hint: Read it fast it makes a funny kind of sense!) But again that would be MY belief. Shhhh Please don't tell anyone in the Government though that might disagree!!! Lest they send 5 fully armed Swat teams to my little spot in the world all of those Swat members being fully armed with the latest in Anti Terrorist weaponry to storm my little home that doesn't have any kind of a weapon unless you consider my 1.5 year old clownish French Bull dog some kind of evil canine??? LMFAO And after they kick in all my doors and windows all they will find is an old kitchen scale that measures food weight and calories!!!! OMG and you know it's the likes of individuals such as myself, middle-aged women that are most certainly the biggest threat to this Country!!!! But take away all the sarcasm and right here you will find a person who will die to protect my civil rights and those of my fellow American. Because I am one of those American's that when I see the someone's civil rights being violated by the Government, or Federal Law enforcement, or even local law enforcement officers. I will stand up and speak up for that person. And I will not shut up and just go away and mind my own business. Because I do believe and Know that to do NOTHING means I am freely agreeing to give up my own rights. And that is never going to happen!!! So YA I am a very proud 54 year old troublemaking military vet that is also a staunch supporter of the US Constitution and will commit civil disobedience making sure it is not blatantly violated in my presence. And there never is a bad day for a REVOLUTION!!!
