One man's terrorist is another man's freedom fighter and so the Jihadists will never be described as terrorists by the progressives.

The only profile that the progressives will describe as terrorist is the big, bad white man.

Local station (WHDH) is reporting that an 8-year old is among the deceased. Not specified if it was boy or girl.

I will stand by my post. The chances of a bombing on tax day in Boston is just too much to be a coincidence. The significance of that "coincidence" has no meaning to anyone but a U.S. citizen.

Have Conservatives been blamed yet? I figure if they haven't, it's only a matter of time before they are.

I just watched an interview from a local TV station and when asked how the reporter (onsite in Boston) is communicating with them, he said he was on his cell phone.

This is terrible. I don't want to jump to conclusions, but if this attack came from the middle east I wouldn't be surprised.

One counter-point is that the Boston Marathon is a WORLD-WIDE event, and it always occurs on the third Monday of April. It just so happens that the third Monday this year is the 15th.

So, the argument is was "April 15th" the statement, or was "Boston Marathon" the statement?

Bad math? Care to fill me in on your qblh or numerology expertise, mr aleister crowley?


We are both on the internet, feel free to google. There are actually people on this planet who believe in such things. There are people on this planet who are into the occult, numerology, kabala (qblh),Hitler admirers, etc. Maybe when I get on a pc ill link to a list. I dont know if the perp was into this stuff, but weird things do kinda happen around this time. The poster I was responding to asked why weird stuff seems to happen on 44/19 or 4/20.

Actually I have a graduate degree in Math...oh, and I am a graduate of Yeshiva...I.E. I know a thing or two about Kabalah and gematria.

Your statement is....still, bad math. My statements stand.

SEEMS is the operative word here. If you have the conclusion in mind you can always find evidence that makes your conclusion SEEM possible.

When it comes to tragedies there is no more connection to this month that there is to both of my weddings happening in November.

Prayers to the ones who need it. How about we let the investigators investigate before we jump to conclusions?

It's definitely terrorism, but it's to early to say whether it's foreign or domestic.

@rabbi, care to be my tutor? The term 420 has nothing to do with any math, its just slang. Im not even sure why you started talking about math...
@countrygun, you dont have to believe, but there is strangeness in the world and people who do...I think astrology is silly and based on things that only seem to be true, but I know people who base their lives on it. Anyways, if you or anyone else wishes to discuss this pm me
No more clogging this thread.

At this point, all of the "ready, fire, aim!" speculation on who did this is nothing more than mental chest-thumping. We don't know enough yet to draw any concrete, or even informed, conclusions.

Prayers for the injured and condolences to the families of the dead.

No kidding....you constantly hear on this site about liberals and how they jump to conclusions and use tragedy to build on or support their agenda. I present you Glocktalk which does the same thing.

Now should be a time to come to terms with this tragedy and not throw out wild speculations.
