Boston Marathon Bombing:

Posted 04-24-2013 at 04:42 PM by Nbiser
Updated 04-24-2013 at 05:20 PM by Nbiser

As we all probably know, there was a bombing in Boston during the marathon. There is now quite a bit of debate on this and surrounding issues. Were the bombing suspects Muslim terrorists? Why did they kill the MIT officer? etc. etc. I'm surprised that the liberal politicians haven't started saying, 'Ban all pressure cookers! After all, they can and were used as weapons of mass destruction!!' Indeed various leaders have come out and said that the constitution "needs to be reinterpreted to keep...

Posted 04-23-2013 at 02:17 AM by rocket357 (Musings on technology, philosophy, and life in the corporate world)
