New Republican Voters?

The campaign regarding immigration should be to demonstrate how much MORE an immigrant can EARN vs. the welfare handouts. Supporting small business makes for more jobs, thus is a Republican platform issue. Immigrants should then be more supportive of the Republican ticket. If THIS message gets out, either it will have a great effect on the Republican Party, or Democrats will stop supporting immigration. This is a win-win for conservatism!

Boston Marathon Terrorist Attack

4/15/2013 - Boston Marathon rocked by two explosions.

Two bombs went off, more devices reportedly found. Two dead, dozens injured. Let us pray for comfort in this time of suffering and loss. 

Let us not rush to judgment and perhaps cast blame on the wrong parties, and for now pray for comfort and peace for those individuals directly affected. Lord have mercy.

More later, sent this from my Windows Phone. 

OK, home now...  some updates. 

They are now reporting 3 dead, about 140 injured, some critically - including several with loss of limbs.

Marathon Witness: Explosions 'Like a War Zone': ABCNEWS.COM - Rachel Sibley says chaos resulted from explosions at the annual Boston marathon.

On my drive home I heard an interview with someone who saw a child, untouched by the physical explosion, but just standing there in complete shock.  Not all the victims were physically hurt.

Continued prayers for ALL those affected by this act of terrorism.

Update, 4/16/2013 - No additional explosives found or detonated.

The only devices found were the two which went off, there are no other bombs in the area.  No word on suspect(s) and no organization has taken credit.

Is this the bag which held the second bomb?

Update, 4/17/2013

Death toll has not climbed, still at 3.  170 people injured.  Over a dozen still in critical condition.  Several conflicting reports throughout the day of arrests made, but ultimately authorities said no one has been arrested yet.

Update, 4/18/2013 - Are these the bombers?  

Zoom in on the bottom picture, it appears the guy with the white hat is dropping his backpack over the fence...  No race to judgment, but these pictures appear to be quite concerning.  However, neither backpack matches the suspicious bag in picture above.
