Trolling the news

I was in my car today, driving to Walgreen's when I heard that a leader, one whom will remain unnamed, has overturned an 18 year ban preventing the media from going berserk and photographing a dead soldiers return home....Of all things insane and asinine that are going on since a certain time frame last year, this is the one event that has pissed me off beyond all points.

I have been through heartache, pain, and as of lately a long standing sorrow, but does one allow themselves to stoop so low as to ignore the respect and privacy deserving of our fallen men and's a truly dark day when celebrities are provided better treatment than our fallen heroes.

Please take the time to comment.

my father, Army, Korean War, is horrified. the other half, Marines, Desert Storm, is horrified. my best friend, Marines, Desert Storm, is horrified. my neighbor, Navy, Vietnam, is horrified.

see the pattern here?

That everyone you know is horrified?

The first photograph was published today under the new rules and it was NOT bad. Yet.

yep, everyone i know that risked their ass for our country, anyway.

and "yet" is the operative word in that sentence. we all know how the press can go overboard. it'll happen. dangit.

Might I suggest that in order for them to be happy, you buy them all one of these?

ChristinaJade said...
