Unless your incoming mail was routinely inspected by the FBI; unless you had clients hire a bodyguard so you could perform your work; unless your vehicle was routinely swept for bombs, all courtesy of the Unibomber and his mimics, you might not find the use of the term here to be grossly inappropriate.

 

And yet it is exactly that: insensitive, crude, incendiary and inappropriate. Also typical of these boards. 

 

Epster, the frequent thread unsubber, going now to engage that feature because there is nothing you can say now that I intend to read. Period.

 


The blitzkrieg manner in which you attack another's post without one iota of ON TOPIC discourse is really getting long in the tooth. This isn't the first time you are guilty of this.

 

@Epster, your experiences have nothing to do with the subject matter of this post.

 

That I used the name given to "Ted" Kaczynski, THE UNABOMBER, is because many, from The Washington Post to Fox News, are drawing parallels of these latest incidents to the incidents he perpetrated so many years ago.

 

Where you got the term UNIBOMBER from, I do not know.

 

Frankly, you make it sound like my post was personal when you weren't even a participant in the thread.

 

Once your complete your attack by using words such as insensitive, crude, and inappropriate; you then state you won't be reading any responses.

 

In other words, the only purpose of your post was NOT discourse but WAS TO ATTACK ANOTHER.

Just another case of the poster using his own prejudical feels reflect in his posts.  There isn't any incident in the state of Texas that he doesn't jump on and build up to be nefarious. 

 

He completely ignores the facts and doesn't post his sources.  I posted a link to CNN where it clearly states, as I have read in local media, that this packages were left on porches in the middle of night.  He makes that being mailed through the USPS.

 

And his Amen Corner jumps right in with an 'Amen' just because of the location.

 

This site has deteriorated to the level of supermarket tabloids or lower.


Well whoopee doodle doo!

 

Maybe after another dozen or so posts disagreeing with nctarheel and lauding the absolutely racially bias-free state of Texas are posted, those people will - either magically - or miraculoulsly be alive again...

 

Maybe Putin's Butt-Boi-in-Chief can do something - ya think?

More false information gathered by browsing the internet for juicy tidbits to blow out of proportion.

 

These are not 'mail bombs' as the poster incorrectly posted, but packages left on front porches by an unidentified person.  Then when the homeowner or someone opens the package they explode.

 

None of the cardboard packages was delivered by the US Postal Service or delivery services such as UPS or FedEx, police said. The packages were left in the overnight hours. The poster apparently has a vivid imagination who's post fits his purpose about painting the state as racially prejudice.

 

As far as the ethnicity of the victims, the authorities are unsure of the motives.  Of course the poster has in the past brought up racism where it doesn't exist.

It just breaks my heart. The 17 year old victim especially. He was just a baby, his whole life ahead of him. Draylen Mason, rest in power.

Just like the UNABOMBER decades ago; but, with RACE this time as the determining factor as to who is the victim.

 

Shouldn't surprise anyone in a state that has the most KKK chapters in the country and 215 Law Enforcement Agencies with no people of color.

 

Just a guess, but I would not be surprised the bomber is a gunnutter who wants people to think guns are okay because there's so many other ways nut cases can kill people - which IS a recurring "argument" (devoid of logic) used by the NRAGOP to defend their inaction on gun safety.

It never ceases to amaze me how some just look for reasons to be offended and attack others with their faux outrage. Especially closing with the now ever-so-familiar, "I don't care what you think; I'm not listening (reading) what you have to say."

 

It's odd they often think others should care how they feel?  What hypocrisy...

 

Of course, it's an excellent description of what's happening in Austin.  Like the "Unibomber", the method is "delivered packages" from an anonymous party.  I don't think they could have used a "match"....
