Kind of a day late and a dollar short to play dress up, aren't they?

It always pisses me off to see a great police presence AFTER a crime. When seconds count, the police are minutes away!

Guess the Saudi will be sprung and sent back home, never to be heard from again....from a prominent family, probably.

Classic “Destabilization” phase.

By the book:

#1 They set the criminals loose from jail, then
#2 They blow eveything up, then
#3 Declare martial law, then
#4 NWO aka Moslem Utopia aka looting/starvation

I wonder if Omoslem will let the bomber ride his magic carpet before he’s sent off to his new condominium in Bermuda.

What is that supposed to mean? You want armed men in the streets all the time?

This is a lot of aggressive and lethal activity IN America and against Americans.

I wonder if all the American Liberals (”O” included) who ran around apologizing for America, blaming America, bashing America, agreeing with the enemies of the US, insulting Americans, appeasing America's enemies (they know who they are).. are proud of themselves now, for having so successfully cultivated the ‘I hate America’ mentality abroad and at home!

This bomb threat is a ruse. Anyone see the video of the evacuation of the federal courthouse while at the same time a van with armed agents hanging on the outside rapidly pulls up to the courthouse and then backs into an underground garage.

Obviously they cleared the courthouse for an arraignment.

No, it means that it disgusts me to see them all dressed up in tacticool at every opportunity. They can stand down with the paramilitary look and just dress like cops. They are not military in Afghanistan. The bombings are over with, everyone has gone home and there are no dogs to shoot here.
