Skip to comments.Barney Frank on the Boston bombing: Let this serve as a reminder to you, smaller government
Posted on 04/16/2013 5:08:17 PM PDT by Nachum
The wisdom Frank tried to impart on CNN this morning is that the best way to fight against terrorism is by making government a lot bigger.
Video via The Weekly Standard:
In this terrible situation, lets be very grateful that we had a well-funded, functioning government. It is very fashionable in America, and has been for some time to criticize government, belittle public employees, talk about their pensions, talk about what people think
of [their] health care. Here we saw government in two ways perform very well.
I never was as a member of Congress one of the cheerleaders for less government, lower taxes. No tax cut would have helped us deal with this or will help us recover. This is very expensive.

Full title: Barney Frank on the Boston bombing: Let this serve as a reminder to you, smaller government tax cut zealots!
He really just doesn’t get it.
Franks always sounds like he has a couple of hot dogs in his mouth.
government didnt do sh1t.
people across the entire spectrum did.
it will ever be a blank check barney. up your fat gerbil-loving ass.
“never” be a blank check
Then Barney needs to explain why the Obama administration has slashed the budget for domestic bombing prevention in half.
He and Mumbles Menino could open up an elocution school.
How did that prevent the bombings, Mr. Rump Ranger?
I read that we have about 6 million Muslims in America. If only one tenth of one percent, 6,000, are radical to the point of carrying out individual acts of terror, we are in for a long dark string of horrors. Take the radicals, along with cartel members and other malcontents and ask this of Barney: Who let them in?
You can always count on Bawney to say something really, really stupid.
Conservatives on this board would LOVE to spend 2X to 3X on border control and 2X to 3X LESS on social programs, doesn;t dip-shiite barney understand this...
Levin put it nicely last night, Conservatives WANT Nation government for National defense, even if it is “Big” as long as it is well ran and efficient and actually protects the borders!!!
Hey Barney, fat, drunk and perverted is no way to go through life.
We're talking about social programs....not security.
Frank was a prime mover in the emasculation of the old Walter-McCarren Act (about 1950 or 54) to the Immigration and Naturalization Act, which kept communists and communist sympathizers, and other undesirable people out of the US by denying them a visa.
He, STENNY HOYER (D-MD, Democratic Whip), Kennedy, Moynihan and some others, mainly on the far-left in Congress, teamed up to destroy the security checks on potential visitors and immigrants. The vote was about 1988 or 89 and it passed. World Trade Center was 1993, by Saudi Arabians.
Guess who has blood on their hands?
Stunning stupidity: If the biggest government the world has ever seen has a larger problem with terrorism than most other smaller governments, it defies every rule of logic to conclude that an even bigger government could possibly reduce terrorism.
The logic and facts leave no room for doubt or argument: Terrorism is positively correlated with abusive, tyrannical, oppressive government. And tyrannical government is positively correlated with bigger government having greater powers and fewer constraints.
Did Barney had-to-be-Frank-cause-he-ain’t-worth-Beans miss the fact that untold Billion$ spent on Big Government “Homeland Security” failed to stop 3 bombs yesterday? I doubt that the wounded and the families of the dead see that as a success.
