We have a burial site for Boston bomber Tamerlan Tsarnaev’s unwanted body

Nobody wants Tamerlan Tsarnaev’s body.

The New York Times reports that Tamerlan Tsarnaev, a suspect in the Boston Marathon bombings who died more than two weeks ago after a shootout with the police — he was also run over as his brother fled the scene — is still not buried.

Tsarnaev’s widow, Katherine Russell, declined to claim the crushed and bullet-riddled body. Finally, Tsarnaev’s estranged uncle Ruslan Tsarni claimed it a few days ago, saying he believed his nephew deserved a proper burial.

But as of yesterday evening, no cemetery had been found that would take the body. And officials at all levels of government spent the day tossing around responsibility for his burial like a hot potato.

Gov. Deval Patrick of Massachusetts said burying Tsarnaev was not up to the state or the federal government but to the family. Protesters have staked out the Graham Putnam & Mahoney Funeral Parlors in Worcester where the body lies, some carrying signs that say things like, “Bury this terrorist on U.S. soil and we will unbury him.” Federal officials said they had no jurisdiction and no interest in getting involved. An F.B.I. official said that the body was no longer needed for the investigation and that the burial was up to the family and the local authorities.

Now Tsarnaev’s shoplifter mother, Zubeidat Tsarnaeva, says she would like her son’s body to return to his home country, Russia, but there’s no assurance the Russian authorities would agree to accept the body and inter it.

Ever eager and ready to help those in distress, FOTM worked feverishly on this problem all day yesterday and finally found a fitting and proper final resting place for Tamerlan Tsarnaev!

Flushing Toilet

Afterall, we flush aborted but born-alive babies down the toilet in America.

That’s what serial killer “Dr.” Kermit Gosnell does in his Philadelphia abortion clinic.

That’s also what a “counselor” at an abortion clinic in Bronx, NY, advises.

Tamerlan Tsarnaev’s body is just bigger, that’s all.

One Boston Bombing Suspect Is Dead

Breaking…Breaking!!!!

BOSTON — The Boston region was in the grip of a security emergency as police pursued one of the suspects believed to be responsible for the Monday bombings at the Boston Marathon. Both suspects led officers on a wild and deadly chase through suburban neighborhoods early Friday morning that ended in the death of one of them as well as a campus police officer; the other suspect, who is armed and considered extremely dangerous, remains at large while hundreds of police officers conduct a manhunt through the normally tranquil Boston suburbs.

Gov. Deval Patrick has suspended service on all public transit services in the MBTA system in Boston, including the “T” subway, buses and commuter trains.

The authorities asked all residents of the towns of Watertown, Newton, Waltham and Cambridge to stay home and stay indoors. Watertown was locked down early Friday morning, with no one allowed to leave their homes and no businesses allowed to open.

“This situation is grave, we are here to protect public safety,” said Col. Tim Alben of the Massachusetts State Police.

“We believe these are the same individuals that were responsible for the bombing on Monday at the Boston Marathon,” Mr. Alben said. “We believe that they’re responsible for the death of an MIT police officer and the shooting of an MBTA officer.”

In the course of the chase, the suspects shot and killed a campus police officer at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and severely wounded a transit police officer, police said.

Mass. governor bans all travel beg. 4pm today

This afternoon, Massachusetts’ Democrat governor Deval Patrick declared a state of emergency and banned all travel, due to the blizzard that is expected to bring up to – GASP! – 3 feet of snow.

As if Massachusetts had never had snowy winters!

Deval Patrick

CBS Boston reports, Feb. 8, 2013, that Patrick (photo above) signed an executive order to ban all travel on all roads in the state starting at 4 p.m. Friday, due to rapid snowfall of 2-3 inches per hour which will make for “extremely dangerous conditions,” making “safe travel nearly impossible.”

There are some exceptions to the ban, including emergency workers, those who work in hospitals and media, and others required to be at their jobs.

If you don’t have an exemption and you’re caught on the road, the penalty could be as steep as a $500 fine or, at worst, a year in jail.

Public transportation will not be an option either. The MBTA is shutting down at 3:30 p.m.

This is the first time that a Massachusetts governor has issued an executive order like this since the Blizzard of 1978. But back then it was put in place after, instead of before, the storm.

At a news conference at the MEMA bunker in Framingham, Patrick told reporters it’s not about the punishment, they simply need the roads clear during the blizzard. “Essentially we want everyone off the road,” MEMA spokesman Peter Judge told WBZ-TV’s Jon Keller.  ”We’re talking common sense here.”

Patrick did not say when the travel ban would be lifted.

Below are some readers’ reaction to the ban:

I will go out if I want to. If I get into trouble, I will help myself even though self-help is discouraged in this gulag of a state. Does this ban include the Police ? If they are not on the roads, It means I can go about my business without getting a jack-boot on the back of my neck.

Everyone within walking distance of this tyrant should go sledding on his front lawn.

planeboy •

Just wondering..If your still at work when to ban takes effect then what? This looks like a test run to see who they can control… nanny state running amok…

Reverend Ken •

For sure has to be a socialist dictator !!  Has he declared ‘martial law’ for the state as “The Messiah” KING OBONGO would love too for the entire country ????

John Sheridan •

Well, he IS the Governor of the Peoples Republic of Massachusetts isn’t he?

Contrast Deval Patrick’s wimpiness with the pioneer spirit of the folks in Northern Michigan one very very snowy winter: http://fellowshipofminds.wordpress.com/2010/01/13/pioneer-spirit-lives-in-n-michigan/

What about FOTM writers and readers in Massachusetts? Let’s hear from you!

Petty tyrants across America try to ban the American flag

In May 2010, a FoxNews poll found that an astonishing 33% of people in the United States wanted the American flag to be banned. Some among that 33% are actually successful at getting the flag banned even when it’s someone else who’s displaying the flag.

Here are some instances chronicled by FOTM:

  1. A shopping mall in Portland, Oregon, forced the manager of the children’s train to remove American flags that are used to decorate the train ride.
  2. An apartment complex in Springfield, Oregon, served an eviction notice to a Navy veteran because he put up an American flag in a common area of the complex on Navy Day.
  3. A neighborhood association banned a 90-year-old veteran from flying the American flag outside his suburban Virginia home.
  4. An Olive Garden restaurant in Oxford, Alabama, banned a woman from bringing an American flag into the restaurant for a planned Kiwanis Club meeting because the flag would “disrupt the dining experience for all other guests.”
  5. The principal of Denair Middle School in California ordered a 13-year-old boy to remove the flag from his bike for fear the flag of the United States of America would “incite racial incidents” Hispanic outrage.
  6. The Live Oaks High School in Morgan Hill, California, sent three students home for wearing American flag t-shirts to school on Cinco de Mayo because the t-shirts might provoke “violence” on the Mexican holiday.

Add two more to the above list.

CBS Boston reports, Sept. 12, 2012, that a housing agency in Wrentham, Massachusetts, had outlawed the display of U.S. flags.

The Wrentham Housing Authority notified residents of the Garden Lane public housing complex of the policy through a letter taped to their doors on July 11, 2012. The unsigned letter said the move was made after a tenant had complained to the state Department of Housing and Community Development (DHCD) over the 4th of July holiday. Wrentham Housing Authority executive director Nancy Siegel told WBZ-TV she “followed orders” by sending the letter although she admitted there was not an excess of American flags at the complex.

Residents of the complex for the disabled and elderly, responded by hanging their own flags from the poles built in to the apartment buildings. State Representative Dan Winslow paid a visit to Garden Lane to give flags to the residents (see pic below). The flags were so popular that many were taking an extra flag or two for their neighbors who were not home.

In response to a firestorm of complaints, the office of Governor Deval Patrick issued a statement that the ruling was a mistake and that under their policy, “respectful and safe” displays of the American flag is allowed on public housing property. However, it remains unclear who had given the order to Siegel to send the offensive letter.

Then there’s the Applegate Apartment complex in Muncie, Indiana.

Snejana Farberov reports for the UK’s Daily Mail, Sept. 29, 2012, that the management of the Applegate Apartments banned veteran Chris Smith and other residents from displaying yard art, including the American flag.

Residence: Smith has lived at the Applegate Apartment complex in Columbus for the past three years

Smith had enlisted in the U.S. Army after the September 11 attacks and served four years. Until the letter from his apartment’s management, Smith had decorated the patio of his apartment with military insignia and other patriotic symbols, including the star-spangled banner.

Outlawed: Chris Smith received a letter from the management of his apartment complex saying that he and other tenants can no longer display yard art, including flags Chris Smith

But after three years of living at the Columbus housing complex, the veteran received a letter from management informing him that he can no longer display an American flag outside his unit.

In response, the veteran took to the Internet and created a Facebook group called “Let It Fly” in hopes of overturning the ban.

Smith told Fox News “I can’t stand for it. It goes against everything I believe in. The flag represents freedom…it represent the blood that has been shed so that we can live free. I just want to fly a flag. I just don’t understand what the big deal is.”

Change: The policy regarding yard art was put in place after the complex was purchased by new owners

The change in policy comes after Applegate Apartments was purchased by new owners who revised rules to include a ban on any yard art, including the American flag. The new policy means Smith and other tenants can only decorate the space outside their front doors or the inside of their patios.

Mass Democratic Gov. approves of using food stamps to buy porn

How do I know that?

Because Governor Deval Patrick just vetoed a bill that was passed by the Massachusetts state legislature which would ban food stamp (or EBT) cards being used for such non-food frivolities as  “tattoos, guns, porn, body piercings, jewelry, fines, and bail,”

Deval Patrick is the POS on the right

Chris Cassidy reports for the Boston Herald, July 9, 2012, that while signing the state’s $32.5 billion budget on July 8, Patrick rejected an outside section containing the welfare benefits card reforms that had been hammered out with bi-partisan support in the House and Senate — an effort spearheaded by House Speaker Robert DeLeo (D-Winthrop).

In a veto statement, Patrick accused those who wanted EBT card reforms of “political grandstanding” even though these reforms were passed with bipartisan support in the Massachusetts legislature.

“A lot of people in the Legislature, and a lot of taxpayers for that matter, believe there are a lot of problems with our EBT system,” said state Sen. Robert Hedlund (R-Weymouth). “Some of us have worked hard to try to address those problems. Some of us actually take our jobs seriously, and to be accused of political grandstanding, I think it’s irresponsible and immature of the governor to speak that way.”

“He’s accusing us of political grandstanding,” said House Minority Leader Brad Jones (R-N. Reading). “Well, I think he’s pandering to a political clientele who are in support of him and he wants to maintain that support. … It would seem to indicate to me this isn’t something he wants to go forward.”

State Rep. Shaunna O’Connell (R-Taunton) said, “These benefits are for the necessities of life. Not for jewelry, not for manicures, not to get a makeover.”
