Well even if that were not the case, it'd make one helluva satire video
But seriously, sucks to hear about whoever loss .
I don't like the way the media spins every damn gun death. If they did the same with all suicides, we would hear triple the reporting. But its like
"oh multiple victims, 1 or two dead blah blah" . The same exact headlines could apply to any number of automobile accident that occur on a daily basis
in every damn state. But its like "oh there was a gun... lets get the Red banners with ALL CAPS BOLD, and make it seem like everyone in the world is
in immenant danger of these attacks right outside your door with the tone" and like, God forbid it happens with a rifle and the pundits get on and
talk about "common sense" reforms and stupid crap like that.
I am sorry if the body not even cold yet, but its like every MSM report on these incidents always gets the BOLD CAPS headline on a RED BACKGROUND
every damn time even if no one died. How come I don't see that with automobile accidents that happen everyday with the same rate of victimization??
It's definitely not normal for a relatively minor shooter situation in Austin to be this big a deal elsewhere. Definitely spin for the media because
it fits an agenda. I just hope they stay the hell out of San Antonio.
Tragic about the shooting, crazy days that we are living in. This election, the highly promoted race war, the scary Muslim invasion, and we can't
forget the Russians, Chinese, or Mexicans are always ready to pounce. Then, there are those dasterdly Canadians, don't even get me started on
Its like we are in a minefield of self destruct buttons hopping around on Pogo sticks, and I don't know about you guys but my pogoing skills might be
a little rusty. This environment makes walking on eggshells a breeze. You can't keep your head down and mouth closed and keep your head on a swivle
all at the same time. Where is it coming from next!? Seems like the lack of agoraphobia in a person might be a sign of mental disease. But if we are
scared and hide they win.
If we want to keep our way of life we are going to have to find some sort of balance. I fear it is too late for action, the people are too weak and
the people pulling the strings are far too strong. People are so brainwashed that we all believe exactly that, if I speak out, if I act out, I will be
singled out, and effectively taken out. Be it behind bars or socially outcast and demonized, or dead.
Could it be that our world isn't any different at all. Maybe these same struggles have been going on forever and always will. I don't know why but
people have always hurt, robbed, and killed each other. Now that we are connected it seems we have the worlds tragedy at out finger tips, and tragedy
attracts page views, which attracts dollars. Where dollars are involved you can bet people who collect them are doing everything they can to collect
them all like money = Pokémon, and people will get hurt in the process. There is power in this. The ability to manipulate the masses for profit or
control is not a new concept. The masses eat it up. 11 years later and people still watch the towers fall over and over. Its like fear feeds this
machine, that is a snake eating its own tail.
Cheesy love stories are corny, we need blood!!!
Our environment might be a little sick. Maybe a reset is the only antibiotic. I hate to be all pessimistic, but I am a Libra and understand the idea
of balance. What is good without the bad? You can't understand light without first knowing the darkness. The tragic thing is why we all have to learn
this life lesson first hand.
