Boston Marathon Bombers DNA Tied to Triple Homicide on Sept 11th, 2011!

I just saw this over at the Riehl World View (great blog btw):

In the wake of the Marathon bombings, Middlesex County began to probe a link between the elder Tsarnaev and Brendan Mess, one of the three men killed in the gruesome slaying on Sept. 11, 2011.

Officials said Mess and two men were found in a Waltham residence with their throats slit and their bodies covered with marijuana. Tamerlan and Mess were once roommates and did boxing and martial arts training together.Now law enforcement officials tell ABC News that some crime scene forensic evidence provided a match to the two Tsarnaev brothers.

Here is just one more thing that seems to tie these two to terrorism, but I will bet that the MSM will gloss over it just like they have been with Benghazi.

Cuomo Uses Sandy Relief Funds on Ad Campaign

National Review is reporting that Gov Andrew Cuomo is using Hurricane Sandy relief funds for an Ad Campaign in an attempt to lure businesses to the Big Apple. Meanwhile, there are still thousands of New Yorker’s still trying to wade through the red tape in an attempt to get the grant monies to rebuild their homes.

There are so many things that could be discussed regarding all of this. Here are just some things that pop forefront to my mind:

1). Is Congress going to investigate the misuses of taxpayer dollars? This money was meant to help the victims of Sandy not as a slush fund to try to con businesses into relocating to NY.

2). Gov Cuomo should get a clue. Businesses are leaving NY not due to Sandy; instead it is due to the confiscatory tax policies and the over burden business regulations of the NY (both State and City government).

3). This is why Conservatives believe that you should not rely on the government to “fix” problems such as the aftermath of a natural disaster. We saw this in the fraud, waste and abuse after Katrina (i.e. the prepaid visa cards being used at strip clubs or the FEMA trailers sitting empty and rusting away) and now we are seeing it in the continued aftermath of Sandy. Private charities are far more efficient in these situations (just look at Boston 1 fund as an example) and the American people are a generous people whom are willing to help out their fellow Americans.

Of course if you listened to President Obama then you ought to just dismiss me as one of those voices you should dismiss and just trust the government to do what’s best. I’m sure the victims of Sandy would agree with that sentiment wholeheartedly right about now…./sarc
