I hope all you 'muricans on here are voting (if you haven't already). I think I'm going to stay away from political discussions till after the midterms.

Maybe I won't become a doomsday prepper by then.

True enough (maybe - I don't specifically know what evidence there is or isn't, and I'm guessing whoever wrote this doesn't either).

But isn't that still terrorism?


It's what "we" would call "false flag terrorism." :?

If, however, God forbid, a bomb does go off and someone - anyone - gets hurt, that wouldn't change the larger point Craig, Caitlin and I (by proxy) are making, that we are all excited up about this and not so much about our actual bombing of civilians around the world. And think about the killing power of your average homemade pipe bomb compared to the corporate made bombs we drop from airplanes, one of which could destroy Moscow. Trump dropped in Afghanistan the Mother Of All Bombs, the most powerful, non-nuclear weapon extant. And of course that was big news, too - mostly because of how few people the MOB actually killed. It's the hypocrisy Lebowski!

Well, what do you think it was about? Go ahead, feel free and wonder. A number of media figures have already done it, Limbaugh, and others. The Young Turks have speculated it was a Trump fan. Who do you think sent the bombs? What was the reason? Etc.

I knew it.
Let U be the set of all united sets, K be the set of the kids and D be the set of things divided.
Then it follows that ∀ k ∈ K: K ∈ U ⇒ k ∉ D

Awful thing when that happens. I had a similar experience at a Tom Jones concert.
