I hate the media. You don't even know. This is a list that's been going on for quite
some time in my mind.
1. The current insanity over Arizona. Yes, this guy is an insane idiot and should be
in jail for life. I'm not denying that it's absolutely terrible and disgusting. But
the amount of blame constantly being thrown around by various people throughout any
news channel since it happened is rediculous. "It's Sarah Palin's fault because she
made a metaphorical gun reference towards Democratic leaders." I don't agree with the
gun metaphors and such. But seriously? You're rediculous. It's like saying music
influences kids to have sex or do drugs. Nobody listens to a song about drinking and
says, "oh a song referenced that so I'mma go get drunk now." Referencing a gun isn't
going to be the thing to push some homocidal freak over the edge. The NY Times
literally said all Republicans are directly responsible for this guy (who is
completely anti-government, by the way) killing and injuring all these people.
Minutes after the whole thing happend, Rachel Maddow blamed Sarah Palin. YEAH 'CAUSE
SHE TOTALLY DID IT. YOU MAKE SO MUCH SENSE.
2. My school. Stop hating on us damn it. Last year there was a murder in town. Two
seniors from my school were involved. People didn't like the school before that, so
this didn't really help. There were literally news vans and people interviewing
random bystanders for weeks. It was two kids. TWO. Out of eight hundred something.
They're in jail, it's still brought up in the news every so often, leave it alone.
the rest of the school isn't gonna go kill somebody. Yeah, I have a point here. I'm
in a slam poetry group with other people at school, and an intern is our advisor. If
you know the poem Howl by Allen Ginsberg, it's kind of inappropriate. It's recently
been made into a movie, which isn't nearly as vulgar as the original poem. We planned
to go see it, but decided to check with the school first 'cause they'd probably have
an issue with it. so they did. They said that with all the recent shit going on and
talk about the school, it could make our already shit "image" worse. RIIIGHT. BECAUSE
IF WE GO THE WHOLE FREAKIN WORLD IS GONNA KNOW AND SAY "OH THEY'RE FROM THAT
SCHOOL. AWFUL." No.
3. Everything else that I may or may not add on a later date.
Feel free to hate on this.
