    Most people run out of a burning building while others run in, thank God and God Bless. Thank you McCoy for making this toon after the horrible attack yesterday in Boston.

    One small error…“Finish” should be on the other side of the line

    Bravo, emergency services! There’s always the possibility that the second bomb is for you and you go anyway.

    Please name one person who you can be sure has never acted stupidly, either professionally or personally.

    Mr. Obama learned his lesson. Rather than repeat what he was told, or wait until more reports come in, he labelled this a terrorist attack. It’s easier to start with this premise, in this day and age, and to backtrack if necessary, than to say anything else and be proved wrong over time.

    “Obama calls Boston Marathon blasts terrorism”. ref: Wall Street Journal. (end quote)
    -
    IMO, Obama jumped to an immediate assumption that because the bombing was done on “Tax Day” …that the Tea Party or the Christian Right had done the bombing, so for the first time, also because it is a Domestic bombing, used the long-discarded term “terrorism”!
    -
    Obama’s military and HSA both list “threats” as American conservatives and ex-military and survivalists…..using the Far-Left Southern Poverty group as source to cite. This is agreeable to Obama’s past record of denouncing Americans who “cling to the Bible and guns” sort of hot air.

    But everything disgustedtaxpayer said is true.

    Nice tribute Mr McCoy. Remember this when you’re vilifying firefighters, police and medical workers unions…

    Re-Flex…I did not say that Obama SAID IT…. I believe in his mind he THOUGHT IT…and so used the term “terrorism” that he outlawed in his administration for foreign violence we call terrorism, like Benghazi…which Obama carefully did not call “terrorism” but blamed an American film for inciting the local populace! Which was 100% false….it was definitely a planned terrorist attack using weapons the local civilians probably do not have in their homes.
    -
    FYI, Re-Flex, the so-called “Christian” killers have been shown not to actually be Christians at all. I do not recall who “Eric Rudolph” was….please post the crime he committed.

    @zzazzenn

    Unions do not make firefighters, police and medical workers the kind of people they are.

    As usual, after the fact huge response, police and machine guns everywhere. We have spent billions and still are not protected due to insane political correctness. Any fools can waste money and still get response after the fact. BIG DEAL!

    No your wrong, The Obama Administration has listed ex-military, Catholics and Evangelicals as possible terrorists.

    This leads to all kinds of crude comments and Obama has done nothing to stop any of that kind of talk. Mr. Obama could get behind his tele-prompter any time and stop that kind of talk but has chosen not to.

    So you think Ex-Military and people of Christian faith should be held up as terrorists. Just to let you know I am the one who flagged you because of your bigotry.

    Glenn: THANK YOU on this one for recognizing and honoring the emergency services personnel I spent over 35 years working with in different venues. While I usually disagree with your “political views”, this time you got it absolutely correct.

    “I do not recall who “Eric Rudolph” was….please post the crime he committed.”

    Eric Rudolph blew up an abortion clinic in Atlanta, killing a guard and blinding at least one eye of a nurse.

    It’s been a long time, but I think he was also responsible for the bombings at the Atlanta Olympics.

    As do many religious people, Mr. Rudolph felt that his interpretation of biblical verses trumps law. (Witness the recent flap over some speech by a Muslim in this country who told his followers that they are above the law; the only law for them was their interpretation of Allah’s law. Witness the fact that a married lesbian couple who had a child (don’t ask me how) divorced. One moved to Virginia, got “cured” of her lesbianism, and refused to allow visitation as ordered by law. While citing her for contempt, the judge awarded custody to the other mom. Then suddenly Virginia mom and daughter were in Nicaragua. The minister who took the fall for the smuggling did not deny any charges; his only defense was that he felt that his interpretation of the bible trumped any laws of the land.)

    And there are a lot of people who believe as Mr. Rudolph did, helping him hide for years in the mountains of North Carolina, and providing him with food and shelter. None of those were charged, however, but it took a long time to find him as a result.
