    Seriously folks why even respond to ignorant comments one or two posters typically makes on this site. There biggoted, hateful views speak for themselves. No need to give the clowns any more attention.

    You may not like it, but the liberal press will use this as a wedge issue if they can. And I was just reminding anyone that President Clinton did so with the OK City bombing.

    Re: Truthseeker

    Please. Are you trying to tell us that you are now balanced in your infomation sources by the likes of CNN, Rachel Maddow, PBS, NPR and the major networks? You would have a hard time going more liberal unless you read the Nation magazine. Thanks for being honest though, that was refreshing. Most liberals don't admit they are.

    Mountanman says: "Since most liberals are atheists, to whom do they pray?"

    Zero, and I mean zero, evidence for this statement, and is frankly an insult to those liberals - which is most - who believe in God. Shows which views the DN deems more worthy!!

    Boston is a big town and the marathon attacted thousands of people from all over the world. Seeing some guy on video 'might' lead to an arrest but honestly even with the FBI's best software for image recognition it is a stretch to think this is going to lead to an arrest...but we can hope.

    Since MASS has no death penalty, when they find these guys, they need to be tried on Federal Terrorism charges and executed post haste.

    @ Mountanman (I have to try to misspell Mountain),

    You are sick for bringing this tragedy immediately into some kind of hate-filled diatribe against liberals. I find people on both extremes sickening as they always seize on every tragedy to polarize and politicize. Come out of the mountains and learn to live with your fellow man and forget your prejudices!!

    Do you suppose those that did this are aware of Boston's gun control attitude?

    re:Bomar22

    Nice intelligent thoughtful rebuttal.
    I'm betting DN would never post a comment calling Glenn Beck insane.

    Sorry to disappoint you. I don't watch/listen to Olbermann, Schultz or Matthews--don't really care for the hyper-partisan ranting and raving type programs. My preferred sources are the major networks, PBS, NPR, various newspapers, sometimes CNN and Fox, occasionally Rachel Maddow. For laughs I tune into Colbert and The Daily Show.

    and you?

    Truthseeker,

    Oh, so you listened to Eddie Schultz before he was dropped from the radio and watched him on MSNBC before he got moved to a time when no one watches. You probably record Chris Matthews so you can watch reruns because Keith Olberman has been committed to a facility for the insane.

    "People who listen to conservative talk radio don't kill other people!"

    I suggest you look up the name James D. Adkisson. He penned a manifesto laying out exactly why he went into a Universalist Church, murdered 2 people and injured 7 others.

    Seven to eight years ago I regularly listened to Rush Limbaugh and Sean Hannity on talk radio.
    But one day I heard a caller call the program and say he "wanted to take matters" into his "own hands" against "liberals." Of course Rush (or Hannity) told him violence was not the "answer" but I realized then I was contributing to the perpetuation of lies, hate, fear-mongering and paranoia by listening to their programs. Extremists--left or right--can be influenced and motivated by what they hear. Words do matter. It is important that we unite together against homegrown or foreign extremists, especially those that do harm against others.

    It is silly to speculate as to what the motivation was underlying the Boston attacks when they haven't even arrested someone.

    When terrorist tragedy inflicts us, we should be united as americans and lay our pet political theories aside. We will find out soon enough who did this.

    "Do you really believe that if this guy is another Timothy McVay, the left won't try to exploit it to the max? Bill Clinton did it to Rush Limbaugh back then, and the left is by far worse today with having to defend the indefensible Barack Obama and his Democrat supporters."

    I don't have anything to do with what Democratic leaders do or say. I do control what I say. Mountainman's comments claimed that all liberals (he typically overgeneralizes and oversimplifies) were godless. He insinuated that all liberals are to blame for the tragedy that occurred in Boston. He claimed all liberals were not praying for or sympathetic to the victims of the tragedy.

    I am a liberal. Mountainman is wrong. If you agree with him, you are too.

    Terrorists win when we choose to combat each other over who's political ideology supposedly led to the tragedy. I don't want them to win. Your move.

    I guess the "cynical attitude" of my post was missed. I totally agree with your point and was only adding to the obvious talking points that will come from the left if the guy is found to be a domestic right winger.

    Right on, brother.

    BTW - We can all thank the (left wing nut, self righteous ideologue) Chris Matthews' of the world for our cynical view of liberals.

    @Mountanman
    New Hampshire has the highest rates of atheism in the nation and the lowest crime rates. If you look at all 50 states there's just no correlation between crime and religiosity.

    But hey, why let facts stop you from making bigoted comments towards atheists?

    "People who listen to conservative talk radio don't kill other people!"

    That's just absurdedly false by default when there's 10k murders a year in this nation.

    "They are too busy working"

    Democrats win the votes of the working poor, Republicans win the votes of the elderly.

    "Since most liberals are atheists, to whom do they pray?"

    That's false. The nation is roughly 30% liberal and 10% atheist. Even if every atheist were liberal it still wouldn't be most liberals.

    Your inability to articulate an opinion without using absolutist and farcical overgeneralized statements renders any opinion you offer irrelevant. By all means, continue to share them, but know that not one of us feel like changing our views on any point you make, and thus, you are wasting your valuable time.

    @ M.G Scott. People who listen to conservative talk radio don't kill other people! They are too busy working, paying most of the taxes and praying for their country. Since most liberals are atheists, to whom do they pray?

    "The bombs were made from ordinary kitchen pressure cookers packed with explosives, nails and ball bearings to inflict maximum carnage, investigators and others close to the case said."

    I wonder if liberals will outlaw kitchen pressure cookers...if a gun is used, it's the gun's fault, with liberals logic the bombs were pressure cookers fault?

    You forgot to add that the guy also listens to and or reads Rush, Sean Hannity, Laura Ingraham, Ann Coulter, Glenn Beck, ect. and watches Fox News. But I guess that goes without saying.

    Nice to see where your priorities are though: scoring political points.
