I saw video of some of it I don't think the kinds doing this actually lived under Thatcher's rule. I'm not sure this wasn't an excuse to riot.

Not know anything about her aside for vague memories of her and Reagan, my impression was she was probably the best prime mister since Winston Churchill.

DOUBLE BLAST AT BOSTON MARATHON

Postby Goldeneye » Mon Apr 15, 2013 8:43 pm

http://bostonherald.com/news_opinion/local_coverage/2013/04/officials_23_injured_2_dead_more_devices_as_two_huge_blasts_rock

Two huge explosions rocked the Boston Marathon finish line at Copley Square just before 3 p.m. today, apparently causing numerous casualties, some possible with traumatic injuries on streets crowded with runners, spectators and post-race partiers, while a top city official said police were finding “more devices.”

Boston police tweeted: “23 injuries, 2 dead.”

City Council President Steve Murphy, who was at the finish line when the two explosions happened, said, “Police sources say they are finding more devices.” Murphy said police have had a controlled detonation on at least one object.

Panicked families have begun gathering at local hospital.

“I need to see my mother!” one woman screamed to unformed security holding media back at bay outside Brigham and Woman’s Hospital.

Envelope containing ricin sent to Sen. Wicker

Postby Goldeneye » Tue Apr 16, 2013 11:18 pm

http://www.cnn.com/2013/04/16/us/tainted-letter-intercepted/index.html

An envelope that tested positive for the deadly poison ricin was intercepted Tuesday afternoon at the U.S. Capitol's off-site mail facility in Washington, congressional and law enforcement sources tell CNN.

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said he was told the letter was addressed to the office of Sen. Roger Wicker, R-Mississippi. After the envelope tested positive in a first routine test, it was retested two more times, each time coming up positive, the law enforcement source said. The package was then sent to a Maryland lab for further testing.

Senators were briefed on the matter Tuesday evening and told the congressional post offices would be temporarily shut down.

I don't know if I'd take the guy alive. What a hell of a thing to have an American city on lock down like that.

This is a strange local story. Guy goes missing in 1987 car is found in 2013 they say he committed suicide ! ??? Maybe if he was starving/dehydrated to death and had no help coming for 26 years, i can see the guy using his gun if he had one. otherwise?? last Thursday hikers found the car partly buried. Supposedly this guy threatened to kill himself before he went missing,, is this what the coroner is basing his findings on? thing is people don't usually drive off roads to kill themselves around here to many weeks of lingering tapped in a car. No cell phones here back then, CB radio maybe. strange story without the suicide angle, and the deceleration of suicide has me wondering what really happened.


GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. (AP) - Authorities say a human skeleton found in a partially buried car near Gateway in western Colorado is that of a man who was reported missing 26 years ago.

The Grand Junction Daily Sentinel reports the Mesa County Coroner's Office identified the man Monday as 65-year-old Ronald Vasey, who went missing in 1987.

The sheriff's department says a man hiking near John Brown Canyon Road called 911 at about 6 p.m. Thursday to report the crashed vehicle, which was below a cliff roughly 100 feet off the roadway. The vehicle was partially obscured by rocks and sediment presumably washed down over the years.

The coroner's office says it appears Vasey committed suicide.http://www.9news.com/news/article/335970/188/Skeleton-found-in-crashed-Colorado-car-IDd

An off duty soldier has been hacked to death by two people in an apparent terrorist attack. Very macabre.

The man in the video with blood on his hands :shock: He was telling people how women in his country have to witness this however his accent make it sound as if he has lived in the UK all his life. Does the UK have the same problem we do with young immigrants not assimilating who continue to hate the country who took them in and feed, educate, and gave them a home?

Glad they are OK, All we can do is pray nothing we can do can truly prepare for it. Following the warnings can only do so much and these storms are so unpredictable
One old lady had her house destroyed twice by mega storms the first time was 1999 the second was this week, the unusual thing is how long it was on the ground and it was in such a populated area

My brother and his wife live in Oklahoma and they don't have a tornado shelter! :shock: I asked him if they had someplace they could go in the event of a tornado. He said they did.I hope it's enough though.

One of them (I think he was from Nigeria originally) converted to Islam 10 years ago and became an extremist. He was saying "stop killing people in our lands". I don't know what our lands are.

It's time for a worldwide condemnation of this religion that preaches murdering innocent human beings. Being a catering, politically correct mindset, country by country, is not the solution. The UK had better wake up and oust their political leaders who do not end immigration by these radicals into your country. The USA is impotent to take action on what really needs to be done on immigration because of the disgrace currently occupying the White House under the disguise of someone with a brain.
