    A working man's definiton of socialism: A government that sees success as evil and unfair to the poor leaches that choose not to work and punishes the rich and successful in return making everyone poor.

      You mean that's your definition. It's not the definition. Anyone can redifine words; that doesn't make the redefinition correct.

      Derrik, Hamsta didn't say anthing worth applauding. He gave his definition of something he has no clue about. Amazing people applaud ignorance. Well stated, banasy©. Time people stop misusing the word.

    I recentlly saw a comic in the newspaper that spoke the truth as plain as it could be spoken. It showed a boy and a girl standing in front of a school that had crime scene tape across the main entrance. The boy asks tje girl "Why didn't God stop the shooting?". The girl replies "How could he? God isn't allowed in school anymore." Ozzy Osbourne warned us in the Black Sabbath song "After Forever" what would happen if we allowed the atheists to force the government to remove religion from schools and was labeled as "The Prince Of Darkness" as a result. Imagine that, The Prince Of Darkness, King of all satanists, Ozzy Osbourne, is and always was a Christian. But such is usually the case with the campaign of lies and propoganda put forth by liberals.

      You do know that Ozzy Osborne was British, right? Perhaps his warning is for England.
      Would you like to know who else was Christian? Hitler.

      One can pray in school all they like. If one wants prayer to be state-led, the state must let *all* prayers be led. Jewish, Muslim, etc. See? If one thinks God is mad because prayer isn't school led, one's faith must be very weak.

      Not to mention that the song isn't about prayer being taken out of school; the one line that pertains to schools at all is "Is Christ just a name that you read in a book when you were in school?" Clearly he must be talking about England, because public schools haven't taught about God since '63.
      A decent song, nonetheless. C'mon, it's OZZY.

      There is one line from that song that deals with school, and one line only: "Is Christ just a name that you read in a book when you were in school?" The song talks about being saved. Period.

      @Hamsta,Ozzy was at Bob Jones university in S Carolina with his wife and Bob Jones the creator and head CEO got an interview on radio and in the interview he told Jones to pretty much shove it saying he'd pray to God any way he wanted and not how these bible thumping idiots wanted him too.If Jones didn't like it he'd bite off another bats head for the hell of it just to make his point.Ozzy made this religious leader look plenty stupid basicly putting him in his place about religious freedom and Ozzys no fool let me tell yah!!

      Banasy, go tell that load of crap to kids in Florida who had to sue the school board because they were denied their dilomas because they said a prayer at the graduation ceremony. Or go tell that load of crap to the kids in Texas who forced by their teacher to wear burqas and refer to the 9/11 Hijackers as freedom fighters and not terrorists. Oh yeah, you are liberal and only read liberal news so you probably aren't even aware of those cases and if you were you would just make excuses and lies.

    OMG, Ozzy wasn't labeled "prince of darkness" because of that song! That song is all about embracing God! Hello, biting a bat's head off?? Ding ding?? Ring a bell??

      All of you are wrong on all counts, go tell the kids in Florida who had to sue the school board for their diplomas that prayer is allowed in school. Though I'm not positive that Ozzy wrote that song, Tony Iommi and Geezer Butler wrote quite a few, but he didn't bite the bat's head off until 1980, well after the government and church demonized him for exposing their corruption. Biting the bat's head off was a publicity stunt to promote his first solo album. In that album a song he wrote himself has these lyrics: "I'm just a rock n roll rebel, they say I worship the devil, they must be stupid or blind.".

      He was labeled the prince of darkness in the 1970's he didn't bite the bat's head off until 1980 as a publicity stunt to promote his first solo album. In that album are these lyrics that he did write: "I'm just a rock n roll rebel, they say I worship the devil, they must be stupid or blind."

    Would you PLEASE get your on-air personalities to stop saying, "blaze of glory." The phrase they're looking for is, "blaze of infamy." Or does CNN really believe these murders are praise and glory worthy?

    Unless all these festering sores in regions are treated in earnest and sincerity by the world community, 'war on terror' remains futile.

    These two Boston terrorists' profile from their tweets and friends reveal no political agenda or fanaticism and portrays them as 'typical American youth'. More worrisome.

    The young here and in deprived countries turning to violence, fantasizing about violence as some sort of 'heroism'. Confused and disturbed and angry or plain psychopathic. A problem that needs attention.

    Don't give these two the "street cred" of labeling them terrorists. Did they create terror – absolutely. But call them what they are – thugs, criminals – people who responded to their own shortcomings by killing and maiming others. No big ideological mission, just a selfish, nihilistic lashing out because they could.

    This senseless atrocity is scarier in the thought that it might encourage others who are prone to violence or are mentally disturbed.
