Terrorism threats. Is it really necessary to discuss it on every show?

    I was watching a show called "The Doctors" the other day, and they were discussing various forms of germ warfare that could be used on us by terrorists. I was thouroughly disgusted.

    Not only did they discuss the weapons of choice, they discussed how they could be distributed, and how many people would die horrible deaths from this threat. This kind of scare talk really pisses me off! I'm surprised they didn't get out a map and draw a big target on it that says attack here! We'll be waiting with our cameras to film it, and report the aftermath
    while our sponcers go Ca-Ching!

    This is a show about doctors who are supposed to be helping people with healthcare issues. Is it really necessary for these shows to get on the terrorist band wagon? The only thing it does is continue to spread the terrorists agenda, and spread their attempts to scare people. I say enough already.

    The less talk about these groups the better. Let the people who are looking for them and fighting them deal with all this crap, and stop shoving it down our throats. What's the matter is the military up for a budget cut again?

    It seems every time they are going to cut the budget of the military, they come up with some garbage to keep the money flowing. Who gives a shit if Bin Ladden might be still alive.
    he's probably just jacking off anyones.

    give it a rest!

    one good reason I don't watch TV - except for Idol!  haha but really, I gave up on TV long ago when I realized that the bizarro dreams I was having stopped when I stopped watching their trash!  - good movies, good books etc.  lol  They will keep trying to scare people just to stir things up = I also think they stir up the psychos, which accounts for 90% of the increase in psycho/terrorist crimes.

    I just wanted to add Y2K. That was another thing the media, and the various religeous channels shoved down our throats prior to the year 2000. They had people running scared hording just about anything you can imagine, thinking that the world was going to end in a day. And, Jesus would return to save us.

    I was a cashier at a supermarket at that time, and people were buying 10 cases of bottle water, and empty gas cans. I just laughed at them. What a bunch of morons. They even had people fighting over cans of spam in our grocery department.

    If the world is going to end, as everyone who fell for this garbage believed, why would they need all this stuff? I said, obviously, you don't need your money, why don't you just give me all the money your going to spend on this stuff, and I'll go to Vegas. And, I'll see you when I get back.

    The lady looked at me, and said, that would be the worst place to go. None of the machines would work in the casinos when the power goes out. And there would be mass panic, you would be very sorry if you did that.

    This country thrived for hundreds of years with no electricity, I think we could do it again. We might even be better off without it.

    I have seen many a show that got me thinking, if I was a terrorist..... roll

    From how to smuggle liquid explosives on a plane to maximum destruction plans for ground attacks. It's totally insane! I do think that there must not really be all that many terrorists if so many how to shows are out there and not being used the next day. I think that maybe this is all just scare tactic stuff to control the population and get everyone happy to give up all their freedoms.

    Personally I would rather live in freedom today and die in a terrorist bombing tomorrow then live a long life in oppression and social slavery, but I am a little weird lol
