a point to consider with the media is they are about a sensational story, not the truth. if they were, they would bother to check facts before running with a story. then after the fact they say they were misimformed or new information has come out.

if a person was accused of a horrific crime and brought to trial and through the trial the accused was found innocent and not even involved, well the story would be front page news, but the acquital would be on the last page if at all. they only care about the story, not the truth. some reporters even try to spin the story into their own viewpoint rather than just report facts. IMO, i don't care about the reporters views or opinions, i just want the facts so i can draw my own conclusions about the facts.

We live in a society where the people don't want the truth, they want the sensation. The sensation arouses them and makes them horney. The truth doesn't do that.

The media always tries to arouse peoples' anger to sell more stories. If there were purple people and green people, and one person killed another person of the other color, the media won't say one person killed another. They'll say a dirty, rotten, no good purple person just stalked and killed a poor innocent green person with a GUN!!!
If a purple person killed another purple person with a club the story will be on the back page with the sewing circle announcements.
But the stories are manipulated to take advantage of prejudices that already exist on both sides to get trouble started, which they can then sell more stories about. And they way they even jump on stories from countries 8,000 miles away shows they have a vendetta.

exactly my point! one story sells, and the other doesn't because they can't the audience as inflamed and interested. kind of like the Trayvon Martin shooting, i haven't yet seen enough concrete facts as to make any conclusions as to whether it was a self defensive shooting or a case of a man exceeding the limits with his pistol. did George Zimmerman shoot an unarmed person just because he may have profiled him in that neighborhood? was Martin a thug and up to no good? did he attack Zimmerman as he claimed? i don't know, because of all the speculation and backstories by the media and haven't really heard any concrete facts.

I'd just like to know when it was that I died and went (came) to Hell. When I was young, and went to Nam as a Marine, war was "totally evil" and the media ranted and raved about how rotten and no-good GI's were. When I became a civilian I got involved in 4 oriental martial arts, with the hope of supporting myself running a dojo. I earned black belt ranks (1st degree-fifth degree) in the 4 martial arts. The media ranted and raved about the evil, rotten, no-good martial arts people. I then bought an airplane, and the whole time I was enjoying flying my Piper Dakota, the news was full of stories about the rotten, no-good private pilots endangering the airways. Then I got into collecting guns and actually enjoying shooting them. The media has ever since been full of articles about how the rotten, no-good gun owners are a threat to the safety of all the po' innocent chillen. I got involved in hunting, and the media became full of stories about rotten no-good hunters wiping out all life on Earth. I joined a Christian church, and the media has been full of stories about the rotten no-good Christians who actually criticized atheists and Muslim extremists. I'd take up something like basket weaving, but they'd be crying about me using up all the bamboo. Maybe I should just check in at the nearest nursing home and give up.

Sounds good to me. I only worry when people agree with everything I do. I don't think you sound like a Political Correct sorta a guy anyway.

Politically correct = morally wrong.

Blow up your tv and enjoy life. Eggs and coffee are bad for you. Also, eggs and coffee are good for your health, although rather unhealthy as part of a healthy lifestyle of health.

AIKIJUTSU,

Your Post was very well stated and I certainly agree with you! And also about us vets! I would like to add to your thoughts.
Maybe a slightly different approach here as I walk out on the ice! "Again"
OK, It is amazing to me that every time there is an election especially the Democratic Party (No I am not a Republican only a Patriot) begins an all out campaign to make weapons (Guns) an evil thing "Again!". And the liberal press wants to dramatize each and every event including a gun or specific issue like the Zimmerman case. In addition they inject class warfare for example against those of us who work in favor of those who are in the mind set that they are entitled to reap from our hard work! And they always somehow throw in the race card. For example Zimmerman is Hispanic but not in the news! White guy shoots _____! Oh and Illegal Aliens! Have you ever noticed this! The crime rate and or shootings per weapon owned in the USA is very low today. Per capita of ownership very very low! But there is another thought that I would mention. Lets look: We allowed them to take discipline out of our schools. Children are taught in school to think that if a parent corrects them and they do not like it they should call people like the child protection services. Even if the punishment is righteous which it should always be and without injury, it is hell for the parents to go through. Had a friend that went through it for spanking his teenager! Then we allowed them to take God out of our schools, our community and for the biggest part out of our lives in general which pretty much scrapped our moral structure of right and wrong as well as being responsible for our actions. Kind of like our present Government "Lets Blame Everyone Else" for eternity! Instead of good healthy activities for kids and people like the out doors, hiking, fishing, hunting, shooting and other activities. Instead we allow them to set in front of a computer for hours and days on end playing war games and killing things. I am not saying it is totally wrong to allow them to play games. We played cowboys and Indians and army all the time when I was a kid. But we were outside and also keeping fit by running and playing and seeing and enjoying things. And we were instilled with morals be it Christian or personal pride and we had a definite feel for what was wrong and right and Dad and Mom enforced it. One of the worst spankings I received was for smoking a (One) cigarette with my older cousins in their garage! The the other thought is Dave Grossman who is renowned in his field wrote a book called "ON KILLING". If you have never read it you should! Grossman has stated to the effect that back during the previous wars that they should have only wished that they had the advantage of video war games like we have today to train soldiers. Since it can develop condition response and certainly develops eye and hand coordination which in it self is a good thing. One might say it trains the personal association out of killing and in the mind relates it to the game from training! So the moral of the story it is not the weapons and guns that are the issue. It is what we have given up to the liberal socialists who are trying to control our country and our lives that are the problem. Eliminating accountability, a sense of reality and morals. A good solid family is our only hope. And we need to stop catering to the other side. And get the kids outside to enjoy things like the shooting sport and learning the moral responsibility of having a weapon (Gun)! If we do not it will soon go away!
Sorry for the length of this post but was some honest thoughts today!
