    Although we don’t yet know for sure who is behind these attacks and poison letters… there seems to be a PATTERN. “Gun Control” was a hot issue which has upset many rightwing fringe fanatics. It was the main issue on the table during the time of the Marathon, which was also connected to “helping the Sandy Hook victims.” Reports were also out that other Senators had received suspicious packages too.

    We have to seriously wonder if these bombs were set by DOMESTIC terrorists ….maybe some of those fanatics who have been talking about “another Civil War.” They love the symbolism of * APRIL 15… REBELLING AGAINST PAYING TAXES…. overzealous-ness on “Patriot’s Day”….and “the BOSTON Tea Party”…etc.

    And many of them have been making threats…some are very angry over the “first Black President”….and some upset over talk of “gun control.” AND THEN THAT BIG FIRE IN TEXAS yesterday …. really is suspicious…especially since it was in WACO. That company had claimed to the EPA that they posed NO FIRE DANGER. There is a lot of symbolism in these bombings, letters, and the fire….that don’t lead to a MIDDLE EASTERN terrorist…but to American born nutcases.

    *Suggested books = TAX TEA BAG PARTIES….and…
