I'll probably get a lot of shit for this, but I'm saying it anyway.

    How often are there 100 dead children in the Middle East?

    Because those who are in the Middle East are there and not here in the states, we are not going to hear about them as much a those who live here in the states with us.

    God bless you and all continents of our planet always!!!

    So it all boils down to being about you? Geez, maybe you need to look in the mirror and realize what you just asked...

    Of course Joe, with liberal thinking you miss out a lot of what is happening around you.

    Mexican illegal immigrants Joe, I have issues with them, just like I would have an issue with an Irish illegal immigrant. If people come here legally and have become citizens of the US, welcome. Don't have to be a rocket scientist Joe, to know about laws. Hey Joe, if the shooter had been an illegal Mexican shooting on the innocent kids, would you be outraged, or champion him, as a candidate for a Sanctuary City?

    Maybe normal human behavior is shallow and selfish in nature.

    I think folks typically care about even those folks in the ME, but we American's don't know whats going on over there as much as we do over here where we live. American news cycle puts American deaths in the forefront over foreign deaths.

    But yes, human nature is selfish, not shallow necessarily, but selfish for sure. Survival of the fittest is more than just a "surface" reaction.

    You do know that about 33,000 born and unborn babies are killed by liberals every month in the United States? Why don't you shed a tear for them? What is 100 in the middle east when liberals have no "sanctity of life". This is why in the United States, liberals are killing others who want to be left alone in their pursuit of happiness.

    Most of us would have slit our throats years ago if we grieved for every horrendous loss of life around the planet, Confounding. Life sucks, for sure. All those lost souls deserve to be mourned, and I'm sure they are, by the people who knew them. We can't carry the entire weight of the world's sorrow on our shoulders, though.

    Honestly I don't shed tears for any of them. I just like to make games out of pointing at the hypocrisy of humans.
