Who got caught?

Hi Friends; I received a note from more than a couple of you that the last video caught some of you, had you believing that the news cast was for real. It came, as I mentioned in a comment response, from "The Onion", a grop of satirists who, much like John Stewert, poke fun at the obsurdity of our current world. I mentioned in a comment about how the "news people" jumped on the band wagon so quickly and called out thier abject horror at the audacity of the wind farmers. It's frighteningly close to the way our news broadcasts act. I recall some time back Geraldo Rivera was on Fox and a report was made. The others got so worked up that, are you ready for this?....Geraldo Rivera became the voice of reason! So, my title of "Beware the wind" was not about the wind farmers or the "threat" they pose, it was the hot air that comes from those who will say anything to be in the lime light; endorse any product, idea, or threat, cosign any "terror", any "protection". All that has to be said is that it is a threat and people fall over themselves to get in line. And, what do they give know, outside of the ability to think?

I figured out it was satire when I noticed the crawler at the bottom. The news items were totally coo-coo nuts. I agree the video was just like the way some groups put out misleading "news" some stations air it, some people believe it. Names people give their groups are so misleading...clean energy group is really dirty coal.... Then you not only have to figure out the group, but does the news station have a bias, have they been "paid off". I thought it was a good spoof all in all. Hugs

I comment on a now 17 year old boy, who shot a gay man three years ago.

The case is tragic enough, but what I hate most, are most of the comments over there.
So I also commented there.

<3 hugs

Hi Miles;
I did notice the story, but not the comments. I went back.
People seem so ready to throw out a kid when he makes a mistake, and yes the mistake was huge! But, your point of where did he get the training for those thoughts is very valid.
When a kid kills a kid, there is no way to win. The best you can hope is to not lose everything. I don't have any solutions, but I sure don't like the ones we seem to use currently.
hugs, my friend.
