    Hey, Red. It's a free country. How about following your own advice and naming a few dozen traitors so we can trash our own Constitution by locking them up? Or, on second thought, would that be too lenient?

    Since Thursday, I've had the highly unpopular thought that somewhere in a Russian republic there are broken-hearted, bewildered parents. I so GET that these two guys are responsible for the murder and mutilation of a whole lot of innocent people, and that's reprehensible. It has distressed me to see the talking heads on the news programs baying for their blood.

    Whether we like it or not, it is just this kind of situation that calls upon us to remember that these too are a mother's sons, and more importantly, they too are God's children.

    I am wondering why none of the bombers friends and relatives didn't turn them in. The younger murderer, was partying with his friends in the dorm, and some joked that HE couldn't be that guy. What's with that?

    Questions need to be asked of the FBI about not investigating the older murderer more extensively.

    Finally, is Glenn Beck right when he says the Saudi guy being deported is "a bad, bad guy?"

    Were other involved?

    We allow traitors to live among us and because of the liberal agenda and the backlash "normal" people get from them for having standard then everyone seems to be desensitized to allowing people to constantly destroy our freedoms.

    It is long past time for everyone who wants to maintain our rights and freedoms to stand up and start calling out the traitors so they know that we know who they are.

    That is the least we can do.

    I think the Uncle knew these kids were up to no good. Time for him to go back!

    It's not difficult to see where this is going. The FBI was at fault because they interviewed the person at the request of Russia, who was ultimately correct about his jihadism, and the FBI would have been at fault is they hadn't interviewed him.

    It's similar to Lee Harvey Oswald. The FBI should have kept track of him, but if they had, it would have been called harassing a peace loving Marxist just returned from Cuba.

    People in blue collar jobs can actually make money. In fact, in our family, one the wealthiest member of it owned an auto detail store and sold his business for several million dollars to retire at age 43. Another one owns a trucking company with a fleet of 200 trucks, no college education. You don't need to a college degree to be successful. You can even work with your hands and back and make a decent living. Plus, as I have learned from watching and reading the news, the younger brother had a scholarship of sorts...And maybe the family saved money and didn't rack up credit cards...who knows.

    The school was a public school. I believe the elder brotber draggedthe younger one with him. Now many lives have been destroyed for nothing including their own families.lr

    While I can understand an uncle's love, 19 year old Dzhokhar is not "a boy." Let's not lose sight of that in the "analysis" of this. Also, for the author to call it the 'Boston Marathon bombing tragedy' goes to the same effort to rewrite it as something other than what it was. This was a terror attack and the resulting carnage of innocent life is tragic but let us not confuse the two. Also, how does an "auto shop owner" afford such a prestigious school as they attended? While I don't know what it is, I would have to guess was pretty hefty tuition.

    What is not mentioned in the article is what potential effect that the FBI's monitoring and questioning of the older brother might have had on increasing his paranoia towards America and Americans.

    Boston is a very expensive city to live in. Housing and food are quite high compared to Salt Lake.

    Did any one in that family work? How did they get money to pay for their expenses and eating out which it appears the boys did often?
