Had you been at the scene of the Boston Marathon bombings and were not hurt, do you think you would have run away from the blasts, or toward them?

It's probably the safest bet to duck and cover at that point. First rule of a double-tap attack; no telling where the blast to follow might come from.

This would be a good poll for all the Iraqi civilians when Donald Rumsfeld pounded them with all the "shock and awe" the US military industrial complex could muster.

1000 pound cruise missles pack a wee bit more punch than a pressure cooker ! ! !

we evidently need more laws limiting ownership of pressure cookers and we need to register all pressure cooker owners.

It's easy for people to say they would run towards the blast when they have never experienced anything like that. It's different if someone was hurt next to me, then I would help get them out of there, but to run toward the blast is just stupid.

I think I would have jumped about 10 feet in the air then probably levitated about 10 feet away and when my feet touched the ground again I would have went to help.

From reading the comments I believe 3 of you may be part of a local home grown cell! Another point: more GOOD AMERICANS were killed doing good at West Texas, but not near the coverage, no crocodile tears from the emperor, no rides on air force one for the grieving families, WHY? not enough political fonder?

"If there wasn't an audience for a freak show, that freak show would go out of business."

Interesting analogy, willgrr, since you are one of the MDN's top commenters.

Let me see, everyone has sympathy for those hurt or killed in the Texas Blast. Now, what type of funding should we give to the Governor who does not believe in federal help and actually wanted to secede from the Union. What about the Representative from that District. Do we send federal money to his district since he voted against funds for Hurricane Sandy people? Well, liberals would vote to send money in spite of the two right wing idiots that represent Texas because it is for the people. One more question. Who builds a high school, an elementary school, and a middle school within spitting distance of an anhydrous fertilizer plant????

rajii, as for me referring to Obama as the emperor, when you look at how he acts,lives,lies,travels,and who he parties with; what hes done to this country,who he has killed and who has bribed to get where he is I think the title is well deserved and I am being very polite! I will continue to use the reference for all the above mention reasons!!

Centerfiled are you libs really that dumb? Do you really feel the need to lump welfare and planned parenthood abortions on federal funds into the same kitty as help from FEMA for folks who have actually suffered a hardship and did not induce their own hardship like druggies and baby killers do?.

Your brains are fried.. You are so unschooled in what Federal funds should be used for and what they shouldn't be used for.

I really feel sorry for you when you cannot sort the pepper from the fly poop.

Ignorance at its finest. Maybe if you went back to grade school a teacher could help you differentiate between welfare lovers who have babies to get government funds or get abortions on government funds and wanting help and accidental accident (like the Texas mess) that create hardships thru no fault of the peoples.. help.

Do you really not know the differance? If so your like Obama. Gimmie money! I want to spend spend spend!!!!!

"...why should I pay to cover their corruption?"

Perhaps willgrr doesn't have any compassion left for Texans. Right on cue, his political leanings come shining through, no matter the human element in the TX tragedy.

No worries, Willard. We can expect lawsuits over this accident. Somehow, money will exchange hands, whether it should or shouldn't.

Well, my post must have been wrong. Did not the Governor of Texas advocate secession from the US and did he not talk against government aide for anyone. Did not the Governor of Texas balance his budget with government handouts and money from federal bailouts while claiming he balanced the budget all by himself? Now, does this district not have a representative who voted against aide to states damaged by Hurricane Sandy? Chris Christy was right about the Republicans....led by idiots. Oh, and Democrats "will" vote for aide to the people of Texas. How many dumb cluck republicans will vote against it? Oh, an your last post billwillnevergetit, is close to one of your loonyiest yet. You are far more than a half bubble off center. You are tilted along with animal. You are a real dip, animal, Perry has stated he is requesting Federal funds three or more days ago just like he did in 2011 for fires. Add some more Rush and fox news for you to go along with you mental deficienc

Donkeyrider... the oil/gas products are pulled through the pipelines with compressor stations that function much like milking machines do. Maybe some of the old ones push it through but I doubt it. I think the delivery systems for cities are pressure driven by the gas turning from liquid to gas.

Enbride's safety problems and spills are on record for those who really want to know the truth. That lets the wingers out. Kalamazoo, Mi. and Mayflower, Ar. certainly are indications of total distrust for honesty from big oil. Maybe you wingers should look them up for a change. Ah, no, you don't want the facts in your dream worlds.
