    But it obviously would not do the job. I'm going to wait and see what develops before I decide whether the government (either of the State of Massachussets, or the Federal Government) should reasonably be expected to have figured out what was going to happen. They could not reasonably have been expected to do so while Tsarnaev was receiving assistance from the State of Massachussets. Excluding one particular group would guarantee no public assistance to criminals in that group, but where do we draw the line?

    It's not clear to me that these are the sorts of regulations we should be trying to enact.

    At least people on Social Security have worked for it and many have served their country honorably in the military.

    Liberal terrorism? Does blaming liberals for the two Boston bombers ring any bells? How about the conservatives that sponge off the government they claim to hate so much? Seems to me they have more in common with the Boston bombers than liberals do.

    Well, in 15 days I plan to live off the government and I make no apology. I paid every dime of my education and that of my children. I worked 3 jobs to take care of us after my husband died. I have paid into SS since I was 15, and I plan to draw every last penny that I can from it. Color me unapologetic~!

    As to you question....what about them? What have they blown up lately?
