Calm down!

If you look at the lower right corner, it's a parody of the "C-Span" logo.
The "C" is an onion. The Onion is a satrical "news" source and shouldn't be taken seriously


Edit- Here's the link to the original video. It certainly is an Onion video.

Here's another Onion video:

Well, actually, there was this bill, which was real.
www.youtube.com...
The *deep breath* Violent Radicalization and Homegrown Terrorism Prevention Act of 2007
The full text of the bill is really creepy, and probably would have been the bill that would legalize the censorship of the Internet in America, to prevent citizens from becoming "radicalized."

But, as mentioned, it wasn't passed (good!). It may be in a rewriting process, though, and that's always shady.

Good to see ONE source in this thread that isn't Youtube or the Onion.
Not all hope is lost.

Wait a minute... the ONE source which wasn't Youtube or Onion was basically saying that All hope IS lost!

Total Irony...

Looks okay to me, but then again, I'm a trusting, generally level-headed individual who loves Obama. So what do I know.

Don't worry about it much.

The "Onion" has started a lot of threads on ATS.

Isn't that like an oxymoron? burrrrrnnnnnn.

Seriously, anybody who thinks it is a good idea to link youtube as their only source for news material, what I recommend doing before posting is repeatedly hitting ctrl+alt+delete. Just repeat as necessary until the urge to post a youtube video as news is gone.

I almost got mad and then realized it was you ^_^
Youtube is even worse than Wikipedia. Actually Youtube is akin to Urban Dictionary.
Great source.

Breaking Alternative News? The video was uploaded on July 16, 2008. And, yes, besides, you got Onioned.

Come on guys, let's give him a break huh?

He said he was new and didn't really understand how the site and forum system works. The Onion does a great job and we can't fault him for being fooled, I mean, that is sort of the job of The Onion after all.

We all made dumb mistakes and said stupid things when we were new here, it takes a while to be a seasoned veteran.

Iwannaseethisshipgodown, what I would suggest is reading the sticky posts in each forum before posting. You can find them at the top of the thread lists, they detail the instructions and rules for posting in each forum.

I would also suggest maybe creating a new screen name with a shorter, well, name. if you plan on staying for a while it should be something you like

Also, if you are a she then I apologize for calling you him lol

And welcome to ATS

ok.
firstly i'm not worried i actully think this needs to happen the world needs to lose the humans otherwise were gonna kill it for good.

seconded i haven't been onioned i take everything i see with a pinch of salt, how can us common folk really be sure on whats truth and whats not every article everyone has read has been written by humans, not a truth machine.

thirdly i dont really know how to post properly so dont get upset about it being under the wrong topic.

and forth whats wrong with you tube, what does it have to come from the government to be true or on national news.

do reply for more
