It Can Always Get Worse

You've maybe heard that Tamerlan Tsarnaev was "angry that the world pictures Islam as a violent religion."  Not good, that we've got college students stupid enough to think that the solution to an image problem is a bomb.

But did you know also that the brothers were on welfare?  Yeah, our money funded their adventure.

And remember: About half of every dollar the government spends is borrowed. So yeah, we're going into debt to finance terrorists.

And we've got a president who proposed the sequester but who is now doing everything he can to maximize the impact of any slow down in the growth of government spending.

Makes you want to chant yes we can!

Personally, I don't use the guy's name - I call him Suspect #1.

But justice came, in a sense, in a surprising way from a surprising source:

Authorities have released the body of the older brother involved in the Boston bombing, but local Muslims have declined an uncle's request for a funeral and burial. Apparently following through on a statement made earlier this week, the Imam of a Boston-area mosque refused to open it to hold a funeral for the guy.

Earlier this week, Imam Talal Eid of the Islamic Institute of Boston told The Huffington Post: “I would not be willing to do a funeral for him. This is a person who deliberately killed people. There is no room for him as a Muslim.”

It is both unexpected and to some degree gratifying to see such leadership from a sect most commonly associated with homicide and mayhem.
