Wow this latest tragedy in Boston is enough to make any grown man cry.I know I was close to tears a few times when I heard of an eight year old boy aiting for his daddy to finish the race his mother and sister were badly injured too.I wonder what sets of this kind of hatred towards ordinary people.I just wanted to say sorry.Alistair

It’s a terrible thing that a person or small group of people can destroy innocent peoples lives . My thoughts and prayers are with those pour folks.

With our AZ-Mex border wide open allowing thousands, DAILY, to just walk across the border into our country, open to any & all terrorists, I’m not a bit surprised to finally see a bombing that we did not ‘catch’...

It’s a shame we (our Federal Government) cannot do what we’re supposed to do to keep our borders at least REASONABLY SECURE… They’re all pouring in so they can get IN on the amnesty laws being kicked around…

Our country is not SAFE… The Dept. of Homeland Security (DHS) does not know the meaning of their title and is a mockery to our government.

No, I’m not a bit surprised… Yes, I put all of the blame on President Obama for allowing it to happen. He and his administration should be impeached and replaced ASAP. (fat chance)

Damn shame that so many innocent people have to maimed & killed just because politics gets in the way of performing important jobs that effect our Security…

He makes a big deal for Gun Control when a school shooting happens… Is he going to get on a Security act to prevent this from happening again? I doubt it!

Yeah, Joe, because all those Mexicans that shot up the schools and blew up the fed building in OKC must be stopped!

Oh, wait…

I used to live in Boston and the city and its people remain dear to my heart. This is truly a horrible act and my heart goes out to everyone who suffers from it.

Joe, can you just leave this alone? It’s not anyone’s fault except the madmen who did it. Your using this tragedy as a jumping-off point for your politics is disrespectful and disturbing.

This is a very sad time for those of us living in Massachusetts. As someone who attended many Boston Marathons and whose brother ran in 14 of them, I can tell you it is a great event. We can’t let a few criminals take over and run our lives. This is when we as a people come together and support one another. This is a very small planet and we are all part of it.
Joe, I have always liked you, but you are way off base and out of line on this.
Bless those who have died and those who will struggle to live with their injuries. If you really want to do something, give a pint of blood to the Red Cross… doesn’t cost anything and makes us all part of the solution.

Better yet, wait two to four weeks and donate blood then – the banks are full up now but they will run into problems in a few weeks because any remaining stocks will be expired and all their donors will have recently donated.

Ellen and bunkie, I hope all of your friends and relatives are safe.

My heart felt condolances go out to all Boston citizens and those affected from both Canada and all parts of the world. We can only hope this is a one time happening, and will not affect future sports gatherings. This cowardly act can only be dealt with, with the most severe consequences to the perpetrators, may God help the authorities track them down.
Very Sincerely,
Jack Keefe

Joe. Go back to your cave.
It sure is strange that a person/people would do such a thing. Could be it starts at home and the schools do not catch it. There are Loonies out there!.

“A Better Place”

We’ve all heard this before
We all know death and war
We all know hate and greed
We all know where they lead

Lessons learned fall on deft ears
Mankinds struggle inked in tears
The same questions allways asked
Yet we keep living in the past

Chorus:
Let’s take the time to search our souls
Live in peace share common goals
No matter what our race or faith
Let’s make this world a better place
Make this world a better place

We all know what’s NOT the answer
For this global strain of cancer
If we continue in this way
We all know the price we’ll pay

Chorus:
Let’s take the time to search our souls
Live in peace share common goals
No matter what our race or faith
Let’s make this world a better place
Make this world a better place

Cosmicsniper;
It is not just Mexicans coming accross the border. There have been many terrorists attacks in the USA that were from various nations. How did they get in?

OK, I did NOT open the door to this…

I put in my three cents… was told to get lost & forget it…

Someone asked where did the MAD MEN come from that did this?

OK… This is what is & has been happening for several days...
If any ONE of those people was ONE of the terrorists that helped on that Boston Hit / Attack,
our President Obama is DIRECTLY RESPONSIBLE for it… because he told the DHS to let all of those people just WALK OVER THE BORDER into the USA without being stopped, searched, checked, in any way, shape or form… just to get his fricken POLITICAL VOTES!!

To me, that says he should NOT be the president of the USA… and his administration goes along with him… THEN, just probably our nation will get back to order and AT LEAST control our borders & establish some REAL Security!

Now, if any of you dislike this report, so be it… God help us… I am going back into my CAVE!

Good bye!

Thank you Scotsman for being the gentleman you are and expressing your sympathy to those of us in the states.
To those of you “real Americans” who have corrupted this threat with your vitriol, check to see if you have a heart. This is not a political thread but rather one to express sympathies to those who have lost life and limb (14 people lost limbs) and now have to face a life that is vastly different than before April 15.
Get your politics out of this! We need prayers and level heads right now. Boston is in pain. My brother could have been a runner and I would have been at the finish line waiting for him as I often did. As a matter of fact, anyone’s loved one could have been there.
Can we please show our humanity about this and leave the garbage to the garbage collectors!
Ellen

I just wanted to say thanks to Ellen who is a good long time friend to me. Anyway it’s abit early to be apportioning blame on any one group.I love you Americans so deeply I have been in your country many many times plus we had a naval American submarine repair STATION/ base her on the holy loch long since departed I miss those lovely people.I just feel when an act like this is carried out on us soil it is though it were carried out here in Scotland among we Scots.After all many of our fellow Scots very many live in the USA now.God bless all of you inc Joe my old pal.Alistair
