One Boston Marathon Bomb Suspect Dead, Other At Large After Shootout With Police

Westwood0720 Re:Well-planned attack by Al Qaeda (1109 comments)

I honestly think a bullet to the head, dump the body, and forget about him would be the best thing to do.

One Boston Marathon Bomb Suspect Dead, Other At Large After Shootout With Police

Westwood0720 Re:The difference between MA and NH. (1109 comments)

In my county the last murder was in 2010. The one before that was 1987. I think we're doing something right.

One Boston Marathon Bomb Suspect Dead, Other At Large After Shootout With Police

Westwood0720 Re:Please help me find the tech angle on this. (1109 comments)

You don't understand. The media will be on this for MONTHS. Or at least until another mass murder or terrorist attack happens. It won't surprise me if there's a movie on it. Everyone wants a piece on this tragedy. 20/20 will have a special on this tonight. CNN will milk the SHIT outta this. Its what happens here. I can't stand it. I go to 7/11 in the morning to get my coffee and its whats on the news on both screens. Head to the bar after work for a beer and its there too. I haven't owned TV in five years because of the media. Our entire country is focused on bad news. It sucks.

Westwood0720 The difference between MA and NH. (1109 comments)

I grew up in southie. Moved to upstate NH years ago. Its crazy how different things are up here. If there was a manhunt looking for someone with bombs and guns I can assure you we wouldn't be taking cover in our homes. We'd be on our porches ready. The news stories would be completely different I assure you.

TSA Log Shows Passengers Say the Darndest Things

Westwood0720 Re:Don't go to the TSA blog!!!!1 (427 comments)

My thinking behind this is that the TSA hired someone to put the guns there, intentionally get caught by the scanners, and make headlines about the find to make it seem like the TSA is doing some good.

FTC Awards $50k In Prizes To Cut Off Exasperating Robocalls

Westwood0720 Where do they get my number in the first place? (216 comments)

I'm curious as to where they get my number in the first place. Are the calls just randomly generated to call any ten digits? Or does some company I'm affiliated with sell my info?

Either way, phone rings there's only two people I answer to. The rest goes to VM. I for one wish there wasn't such a need for a phone.

Video Game Industry Starting To Feel Heat On Gun Massacres

Westwood0720 Re:The Stupidity, It Hurts! (1006 comments)

The Second Amendment is a stupid anachronism. It needs gutting.

There is no longer a need for a militia - the USA has a nice big standing army with which to defend itself and it has much better weapons than assault rifles, like aircraft, helicopters and tanks. And if you want to claim you need guns to defend yourself against the US Government, well it has a nice big standing army with aircraft, helicopters and tanks. How long do you think the militia with the weapons it is legally allowed to own is going to last against the US military?

"He who would trade liberty for some temporary security, deserves neither liberty nor security."

Get the fuck out of my country. Someone threatens my property, my life, or my loved ones I will do whatever it takes to be sure all is safe. You want the government to watch out for you? Call 911 and see what the response time is. I can assure you, when they arrive they'll be taking pictures of you and your dead family. I'll dial 911 AFTER I've taken care of the situation.
