I am not sure which terrorism you mean, the one in Texas or the one in Boston.
In any case it is time America starts to ask the question, why are people bombing us and why are we bombing them? If we strp bombing them they would probably stop bombing us.

You are more likly to be killed by a coconut falling out of a tree than by a terrorist statistically. Do I worry about either? No. Why not worry about the real threats that you can do something about. Look after your health. Smoking is at least 1,000 times more likly to kill you than a terrorist!

There are always malcontented people that will strike out and blame others for their own failures to positively improve themselves. And, there will always be people that will exploit these people for their own greed for power. Agribusiness on many levels ius a very vulnerable and soft target to spread disease and chemicals that can have3 horrid results on innocent members of the public. Grass root vifigelence and proactive intelegence by government are our lines of defence.

After many years in the military, working to stave off terror. I know this. We as a people will always be more effective at gaurding ourselves rather than leaning on a big government to do it for us. I believe most government folks have good intentions, but most just don't understand that trading safety for rights is just NOT ok. So if you see someone doing something suspicious, call them out. Do something. Or you are just as guilty. Do it for the man next to you... In my humble opinion.

The media are the biggest accomplices to terrorism there are. Their unending repeating of the event plays right into the terrorists hands. Get on with it.

Unless we live in a ultra police state, we will always be soft targets for ill-intended people. It comes done to sacrificing freedom for perceived safety. I choose freedom.

The bombing in Boston reminds me that we are more vulnerable than we think. There are many people in this world who have ill intentions towards us, and the world is smaller than it used to be. Our good will and innocent intentions do not favorably impress those who have those ill intentions.
