Sad to start this post, and I hope the perp(s) are apprehended quickly. Trump critics and CNN receive explosive devices has links to other article and updates. Sarah is very busy lying right now, providing cover for Trump and throwing shade at the media. I have some admiration for Sarah in that she sticks to her talking points and never wavers, kind of in the same way one might have admiration for the Germans and how efficient their ovens were. Really, this morning I am fucking pissed at her for her simple lack of common decency. So grateful that none of the bombs have exploded. The FBI will find him or them. Someone will rat someone out. This is terrorism and I'm so sad it is happening. Sadly as well, the paranoiac conspiracy theory spin machine is on overdrive in the fever swamps. My city had a crazy package bomber this past spring who targeted random people, killing two and maiming five innocents. It took awhile to find him (even with FBI), but eventually he was identified. The young man was 24; his family and housemates had zero clue what he was up to. Zero. He blew himself up as he was apprehended. And yes, he was a Christian homeschooled boy who had trouble finding his way in the real world. But it was a time of terror. No one felt immune. And as this is going on, I know that postal workers must be terrified, as they should be.
I searched and searched and didn't find threads on either of these stories. If my search skills stink, please merge me on over to the right spot. In Paris, French authorities have opened a terror investigation after a soldier shot a man wielding a machete near the Louvre museum in Paris. http://www.cnn.com/2017/02/03/europe/france-paris-louvre-incident/ Meanwhile, a man tossed an explosive device into a Pasadena Cheesecake Factory on Thursday evening, scattering terrified diners and sparking an police search for the perpetrator. I have eaten in that CF. I cannot imagine just having a meal and encountering a situation like this. http://www.cnn.com/2017/02/03/us/cheesecake-factory-pasadena-explosion-trnd/ I am a little surprised on the little coverage either situation is receiving. Perhaps because there wasn't massive carnage? Not being snarky - I think people need to know about both. I didn't see either story on my 6 o'clock news, I had to look online for it.
