    In The News

    Advertisement



    We all like to dish out our opinions on what's going on in the world today. I thought it would be cool to have a thread dedicated to talking about things going on in America and across the world.

    Re: In The News

    To start the topic off, I don't know if anyone else heard about this tragic event where a drag racer spun out of control and into the crowd killing (as of now) 6 spectators.

    Check out more about this story here

    http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/19267840/


    just found this on yahoo news about there being no guardrails at the event

    Tragic event. Probably a case of nothing in recent memory (or perhaps EVER at this location) to cause officials to tighten up safety issues. I always wonder about this very thing when I watch an event like this on TV. Prob a case of the old..."Its never happened to me so...". Tragic.

    The more I read about this story I just cannot understand why the driver did that! I mean seriously! Why would he burn out right there next to the fans?? And why did the people running the event allow him to do that?

    So tragic.

    Re: In The News

    This is a really good story about an issue real near and dear to my heart and something I've talked about in the grinds my gears thread...the lack of good care for Veterans returning from Iraq. Check out this article.

    http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/19279863/

    After reading this ask yourself why the heck celebs feel as though Princess Diana needs a concert, but they can't give the Vets one to raise money to help their many issues. Like I've said before this society has its priorities in the wrong place.

    Re: In The News

    I am really annoyed at the fact how it seem all media, including what is suppose to be real journalistic news is hollywood/gossip driven.

    Paris Hilton's medical condition was getting front page access everyday for more than a week. Meanwhile-

    -Iraq war- apparently surge is working and surge is not working (depending on who you ask)

    -Hugo Chavez has taken over all the network channels in Venezuela (I believe all- last time I checked) adding another level to his socialist state

    -Congress can't seem to agree on this immigration bill. I hope they realize how many LEGAL immigrants and citizens born to immigrants contribute to economy and vote. Because if this situation is handled correctly many politicians will be out of job.

    - NYC- congestion pricing for rush hour traffic. Im stuck on why $8 ? who figured out this magic number?????

    - Former Fed Res. Chief Alan Greenspan says he doesn't have that much influence? HA- he farts and the market shakes. NO ONE TRUSTS BERNAKE!!

    -People in Darfur are still being killed, U.S still doesn't give a F*CK.

    -Some politicians like Joe Liberman say we need to prepare and plan on attacking Iran- with what resources ? Talk to the schmuck in the oval office.

    So much more going on in the world that actually affect peoples lives.
