    Then lets see where he said there are "racist elements within the Tea party movement", and especially its context.

    The racism against Cain has, as usual, come from the Left. He remains a Tea party favorite.

    Still no arrests? No lead? No one saw the car that drove by or the person who tossed the "bomb".

    48 hours now have gone by. You'd think that there'd be an APB all over Maine looking for the "Right Wing" culprits.

    PORTLAND — Occupy Maine protesters say Sunday morning's attack with a chemical explosive has left them with a mixture of anxiety and resolve.

    "We are more motivated to keep doing what we're doing," said Stephanie Wilburn, of Portland, who was sitting near where the chemical mixture in a Gatorade bottle was tossed at 4 a.m. Sunday. "They have heard us and we're making a difference."

    Wilburn said she was startled and briefly lost hearing in her left ear when the device exploded beneath a table about 10 feet away. Wilburn's hearing returned and police said no injuries were reported.

    Portland police Sgt. Glen McGary said the bomb was thrown into the camp’s kitchen, a tarped area where food is cooked and served. Protest organizers said the explosion lifted a large table about a foot off the ground.

    "There was no fire . . . We had a good 20 feet of thick smoke rolling out from under the table," Wilburn said. They could see the "G" on the 24-ounce bottle and its orange cap, as well as bits of silver metal, she said.

    Or perhaps the bomb was thrown by some one on the left who is concerned that the cost to the city of the Occupy movement will force the city to reduce services to the city's most needy.

    Almost a month into the "Occupy Wall Street" protests, mutterings and murmurings are being heard among officials in US cities that are playing host. Their beef: The cost of ensuring public safety and providing sanitation is rising into the millions.

    Police overtime alone amounted to $1.9 million during three weeks of anti-Wall Street demonstrations in New York, Police Commissioner Raymond Kelly said last week. In Boston, the tab for police overtime is estimated to reach $2 million if the protest continues through the end of October, said the city council president this week. And that doesn't include other costs, such as extra trash pickup, portable toilets, and even electricity being supplied to the protesters' tent cities.

    .................................................. ....................

    But as the Occupy protests continue with no end in sight, the worry lines are deepening on the faces of some city officials.
    “I don’t think it’s the activists’ intention to break the public treasury here, but that’s what’s happening,” says Stephen Murphy, Boston City Council president, in a phone interview. “We’re concerned about making the city’s streets, playgrounds, and parks clean and safe, but each of those may wind up taking less because of these protests.”

    Just curious.
    I thinking it would have to be confined somehow for the hydrogen to explode rather than just flame out.

    For instance, instead of capping the bottle you could put a balloon on the top and make a lighter than air hydrogen balloon. If an open flame touches that balloon it will make a boom louder than an M-80.

    Just checking in... I guess all hope of finding those radical right wingers who threw the chemical bomb is all but lost.


    I find it an interesting headline grabbing victimization story though. Maybe next time, they'll claim some right winger did something else even more heinous.

    I wonder if the story is word smithed? Was there any pictures taken of the explosion by the victims or police? It would be nice to see them if they exsisted. Most people have cellphones with a camera.

    A crime that has not been solved? Unthinkable! It must be a fake story.

    Common sense... an alleged "bomb" is thrown where there are camera's constantly rolling, hundreds or thousands of people around, and no one saw enough to find them. I guess you're one of those guys that has to step in the steaming pile of cow **** to test and see if it smells or not. It truely is amazing and unthinkable.... ie.,the story and the claim was and is bull****.
