Boston Marathon 2013

Boston Marathon 2013
You know I think that terrorism is good for business. The media goes wild. Tons of soap is sold. Look back at Nine Eleven. Look at it and look at afterwards. Halliburton got fat. Cheny, already fat, got fatter. Really fat. Is al-Qa'idah on the government dole? I did not think so at the time, but later attacks have made me think, “Hey?! Corporations are making big bucks off these small time hoodlums. Hey! TV is doing great--my wife watched the whole stand-off in the boat in Boston. What else did she see? What will she buy next?” Do you think that Seven Eleven hired those thugs for Nine Eleven, and the thugs got the date wrong?
