the President asked if we would be willing to give up some of our rights to be safer. We will never be 100% safe. We will never get back our rights once we give any up. I say No. Our fore fathers fought for our rights. It would be like a slap in their faces to give any of them up. We have our God given rights and that who we need to depend on. Praise God

If we need to do certain things in order to protect OUR way of life, then so be it. The only problem I see is the potential for occasional abuse of these new powers. But, in the big picture, if it makes us and more importantly our children safer then I have little problem with the proposal in general

George Brandon...your a God Hating, kool-aid consuming liberal. Go to the Democrat page with the rest of your like minded kind. We choose to believe in God. When God was taken out of our schools and such, along with the pledge of allegiance, things really took a dive down, in morality, especially, these last 5 years..what a nightmare...your voting choices have probably been what helped our downward spiral. God Help US.

Yes thank God. His heart is in the hand of God and God turns it how HE chooses. Obama has chosen to harden his heart toward God via gays... abortion...our 2nd amendment rights,,,and traitor to our nation...Thus it appears to me, Obama's heart is now hardened by God and there is no turning back for him ... BUT there is always the hope he would " turn from his wicked ways and repent and God could heal our nation...

Who says anything about giving up OUR rights? Trying this raghead scumbag by military tribunal as an enemy combatant won't hurt OUR rights any -- but if we lose the Great War on Terror (and we WILL lose the war if we keep treating terrorists like fellow humans, which they're obviously NOT), that will be THE END for ALL our rights and freedoms, and for ALL of our way of life!

No, no, no. He should be tried in civilian court. This bombing was an awful tragedy and many people were affected, but he should be tried in the Massachusetts state courts or the Federal system for civilians or both just like Timothy McVeigh.

I feel that he should have been tried as an enemy combatant in a military court. However, as soon as the Magistrate read him his Miranda rights, he stopped talking to the FBI and now they cannot get any more information from him. Why did the Justice Department allow this?

Folks, Dzhokhar A. Tsarnaev is, by reports, a US Citizen and should be tried in the regular Court system. Sorry. However, based upon the reports he is a terrorist and is engaged in a war against the United States. Therefore, he falls under the provisions of Article 3 Section 3 of the U.S. Constitution and should be charged and tried for treason, 3 counts of premeditate murder (so far) and individual counts of attempted murder for each person injured. Upon conviction he should be executed.

Any US Citizen who engages in war, and terrorism is a form of war, against the U.S. is engaging in treason and there are many people should be charged with sedition as well.

Any person who promotes Islamic law in the US is engaging in sedition as well. Islamic law is incompatible with the US Constitution. Islam is not a religion but a political-theocratic system that is as destructive as Communism and Nazism to freedom and individual rights and freedoms. Learn its real history.

I am sure that the movies, computer programs and all that is taken the children to violence has been causing these problems. Everybody all over the world know that americans look at the money first, and fabricate bombs and guns, and make war give a lot of money, and they forget the human feeling and education, and VALUES, TRUE VALUES.
yOU CAN BUY anything but character you can´t, we learn at home. The TV is there to teach the best, but it has been used for showing violence only. Give the exemple first. Make ART, no war.

Should these acts be determined to have emanated from a Jihadist organization against the American people, then and ONLY then should the Military Court become involved. Does this then mean that the Oklahoma City "domestic" terrorism be dealt with by Military Court? Or the shootings in Arizona? Or the Maryland snipers? Those too were also acts of terrorism but were executed by domestics for their own sick reasons. So, no, I cannot support trying this idiot by the Military at all unless,...

And to Mr Ostermann, one cannot blame an entire religion for the acts of a miniscule portion of that religion. Islam does not preach these acts. These acts are directed by sick individuals and carried out by what appears to be either stupid, ignorant or very brainwashed people. No one in their right minds carry out acts like this. In addition, as is common knowledge, there are over a BILLION Muslims in the World and these psychos number in MAYBE the thousands or tens of thousand. Either way, a very small segment of their numbers.

They do what they do simply because of the reasons I stated previously. There are NO rational reasons as these are not rational people we are dealing with. To simplify these acts to video games and such is totally off base BUT I do agree that the violence in Video in these games have gone well past acceptable with no type of REAL enforcement as to...

To simplify these acts to video games and such is totally off base BUT I do agree that the violence in Video in these games have gone well past acceptable with no type of REAL enforcement as to WHO are able to buy them & play them. Again though, they are not the reason for these atrocities. Lastly, America has and will always be the last bastion of hope for people to live free and strive for their own personal growth. To give their children the opportunity to succeed and grow in all aspects, monetarily included. We will defend to our final breath and have proven so throughout history, the freedoms of religion, art and any other expression of individuals in America. So, please re-examine your reasoning and be objective when it comes to the United States of America, which I am obviously incredibly proud and fortunate to be a part of.
