I am not goint to read all of the comments to see if my comment is a duplicate. The Tsarnaevs had an M4 carbine, a full on automatic military assault rifle. With an AR-15 you'd be out gunned. Feinstein is an idiot.
Also the M4 carbine is a full grade military assault rifle (machine gun). How and from whom did the Tsarnaevs get it?
I am led to believe that the high value detainee interrogation program was disbanded by Obama in 2011. This is the beginning of the misinformation campaign from the White House to cover up the Boston massacre and the extent of the terrorist risks we have been exposed to by Obama's incompetent foreign and counter terrorism policies.

Manhunt Underway for Second Suspect

It appears that the terrorists are heavily armed with military weapons and explosives. Where did they obtain them? Their weapons and explosives cannot be purchased legally. This raises the question of whether a black market for military grade weapons exists in our country, or whether the terrorists are part of a larger organization with the capability to smuggle weapons and explosives for distribution to cells and operators. From time to time intell sources have mentioned that Hezbollah and Hamas have sleeper cells in place throughout the country. Our porous boarders make it easy for terrorists to enter the country and set up for operations. I fear that this is the beginning of terrible times for Americans.
Obama, a one trick pony, will do anything to take the focus away from his failed foreign policies, failed economic and jobs policies, unilateral disarming us at a time when we need them the most.
There is a major distinction between Israeli and American college students. The Israelis are all military veterans. They are older, mature, and experienced. Consequently, their politics tend to b conservative. As usual Obama's speech was disingenuous. He said what he believes the audience and Israelis want to hear. I suspect he fooled few people in Israel. But American Jews probable still think he is wonderful.

Big, Evil Oil Companies Pay Most in Taxes

I asked you to identify the source of the tax and income data you mention. Here is mine: http://finance.yahoo.com/q/is?s=XOM+Income+Statement&annual This is Exxon's statement of income for 2012. It shows income taxes paid, $31.045 billion. This is the total amount of tax paid globally. each nation in which they operate has its own tax system. Ours only taxes income earned in the US; our tax code also provides for a credit against US taxes in the amount of total foreign tax paid. the foreign tax credit is available to every US corporation that operates in foreign nations.

Where did you get those numbers? Exxon paid $31 billion of tax on $79 billion of taxable income. Taxes paid are 39% of taxable income.
I submit we already have too many dilettante, know-nothing, celebrity, ideologues in Congress.
Why not cancel all such programs throughout the federal government. Then they can calculate how much is saved.

There have been reports that Chavez was on life support before leaving Cuba. He was dead months ago.
