screw earth day and VT "heros"
EVERYTHING is organic you shit4brains! Even PLASTIC...unless it came from deep space...it's ORGANIC!
Now, on to the "tragedy" at Virginia Tech. What the shooter did was naughty, yes. There's no disputing that. He should have simply had the balls to leave a long winded nonsensical note pinned to his twisting body as it flapped in the breeze from the noose he should have made and USED at home. That being said, he decided to go in to a gun free zone (where he wouldn't have to worry about anyone returning fire to defend themselves) and pick off a few prudes and preps to make sure we never forget him (like the droning people still do on and on and on about Columbine here in Colorado).
What's really bothering me about it all is the "courage" and "heroism" they keep talking about.
There were three people involved at VT; The people who weren't in line of sight or out that day...we'll call them the lucky ones. The people who managed to avoid getting shot...we'll call them the slinky ones. And the ones who DID get shot...we'll call them victims because that's what they were. Victims (or casualties, if you want to get technical). That's it. The heroes are the ones who showed up ARMED AND WITH BADGES ON AND PUT THEIR OWN LIVES AT RISK FOR STRANGERS. That's it!
I'm tired of the media latching on to anything that ANYONE does or doesn't do and granting them titles for NOT getting killed. "...the COURAGE of the gold digger with one leg dancing on stage in front of America..." or the "...courage of some other superficial stick figure who "defeated" an "eating disorder"..."
SCREW THEM ALL and SCREW THE MEDIA for trying to sell that crap (and ANYTHING to do with global warming) to the Survivor and American Idol watching drones of our land.
