    Earlier this morning in Jed Lewison's FP story on the manhunt for the suspected bomber, I read this -

    6:03 AM PT (Jed Lewison): Mother Jones' Adam Serwer says he's found a YouTube page of the dead bombing suspect.
    The deceased suspect in the bombing of the Boston marathon, which killed three and injured more than 170, appears to have posted a video extolling an extremist religious prophecy associated with Al Qaeda to his YouTube page.
    WTF? Didn't I read recently that up to 20,000 analysts are employed by ICE, Homeland Security and other Federal Gov't agencies to search email and phone data, in the search for suspected terrorists?

    What good are all of those thousands of salaries, and the money out of the Federal Budget, when they can't catch someone like this, who is doing their job for them, by publicly posting such material on YouTube, for pete's sake?

    And this week the Congress voted NOT TO ADDRESS GUN VIOLENCE,  because the NRA said "no".

    It's time for The People to stop waiting for someone, somewhere to do something. It's time to remember our historical legacy from the Founding of the Nation - #UnitedWeStandStronger.

    We need to raise our voices, as one, and DEMAND some fucking ACTION out of our government - or AS ONE work to replace all of them as many of them as we can, in 2014.
