    when did we become the kind of people that clamor for a photo of a dead guy or we won't believe he's really dead?


    some of y'all are just fucked.

    true story

    thanks

    Wanting a photo of a dead guy is rather ridiculous. I would've settled for his head on a silver platter or one made of copper.

    I'd like to see it less out of convincing me, and more to shut up any budding conspiracy theories to add to the ones we already have to deal with, Truthers, birthers, and triggers are bad enough, but binladendeaders would just be too much.

    You trust this government?

    After Artichoke and MK-Ultra? After Gardenplot and Urban Warrior?

    Our entire nation was founded on not trusting what the bureacrats running things were saying and doing.


    So I'd say it started in the 1700's and has been going on consistently up to and including now.

    i'm afraid i've got some bad news for you...

    all a picture would do is add a subset of deathers, imo.

    Here is a simple fact that would end this debate among sane people.

    IF Bin Laden were alive and free his press conference would have aired on Al Jazeer within hours of Obama's announcing that he was dead. The FACT that we haven't heard from the asshole is proof that he is not at large.


    And if our government has decided to announce his death so that they can take their sweet time torturing him for information, or merely for the sport of it, then who cares? Either way he's gone.
