Questions welfare payments to bombing suspects


Newburyport Daily News

---- — To the editor:

Much was made this week about the Boston Marathon terrorists buying supplies for their IEDs (improvised explosive devices) from a local fireworks store in Seabrook.

In my humble opinion I think that if Gov. Deval Patrick and his liberal-run government wasn’t giving the two suspects in the Marathon terrorist bombings the financial support through the state’s unchecked welfare giveaway system, the suspects may not have had the funds to purchase the supplies that they needed from the fireworks store in Seabrook.

Who’s to say that the two suspects didn’t use their cellphones provided unwittingly by the taxpayers of Massachusetts at the behest of the liberal-run government to detonate their bombs?

I know that there’s absolutely no proof of Gov. Deval Patrick providing the funds to these two people, but he won’t open the books for us to find out the truth.
