---- — We paid

Doesn’t it make you feel great to know that you have paid for the Boston Marathon bomber’s food, housing, bombs, probably his lawyers and court costs, and now you can pick up the tab on his medical expenses to put him back together enough so that he can be convicted and can spend the rest of his life in jail. Then you can pay for his food and housing there, too. Cradle to grave care, folks, and this is what it gets us! I wonder how many other fine folks like this family are out there. I’ll bet we find out same way we found out about these people.

Markey

Ed Markey voted against forming the Homeland Security Task Force, and voted against additional protections for our ports? And people want to send him to the United States Senate? How can we vote for Markey when he has voted against giving law enforcement the tools they need to fight the bad guys? He is making excuses for those votes now, but it is all more malarkey from Markey!

Benghazi

The House of Representatives has just released a report on the Benghazi consulate attack that details how the State Department ignored warnings that security was inadequate for the risk. Did the White House really tell CBS that “the report appears to raise questions that have already been asked and answered in great detail”? Answered? No; the truth was inconvenient, so the president lied. He has dishonored his office and severely damaged our democracy. He needs to own up, and give his solemn pledge it will not happen again. How else can we trust him?

Next ban?

I’m just curious. I’m wondering if all those people who want to ban guns now want to ban pressure cookers.

Bashing president

Why do people feel it is OK to bash and threaten our president? Maybe we don’t like him or what he does, but somehow we put him into office and therefore he is our president. I was raised to respect that position. In doing so maybe we could all be working together to bring our country back to some normalcy.

Not accountable

It amazes me how Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama are not being held accountable and responsible for what happened in Benghazi. The congressional committee has found definite proof that Hillary Clinton lied under oath and did receive the emails from Ambassador Christopher Stevens regarding his fear of being attacked, but refused to supply more security. To lie under oath is a crime and she should punished to the full extent of the law. She can forget any aspirations she may have to run for president in 2016. This is just the tip of the iceberg. More info about Benghazi is forthcoming and both Obama and Hillary should be very concerned. Watch and listen.

Done nothing

Neither Ed Markey nor Stephen Lynch deserve to be elected senator. They have been in the House all these years and they have done nothing to bring the perpetrators of Benghazi to justice. Markey and Lynch are supposedly Catholic but go against the doctrine and sit back and do nothing about “Fast and Furious” where a lot of little children were killed with our guns.
