    Public Reaction to Bin Ladin's Death

    Yea, this thread is early but what's going on with the public in your area? Any large crowds/celebrations?

    None here yet that I know of.

    I was impressed with the reaction outside of the White House.

    Nothing here, unless you count the night shift workers at Wal Mart outside having a smoke. But that happens every 35 minutes.



    ETA: Just cruised through there. They had no clue. I broke the news to them. Now they're celebrating.

    What I've seen from online comments is how wonderful and tough Obama is for doing this when Bush didn't
    'Political Correctness is a doctrine fostered by a
    delusional, illogical liberal minority, and rabidly
    promoted by an unscrupulous mainstream media, which
    holds forth the proposition that it is entirely
    possible to pick up a turd by the clean end!'

    The College in the City to the north of us had a lot of people celebrating on campus. Nothing to speak of in our town though.


    I'll admit, I'm getting annoyed at the pussification of this damn country though. From people trying to preach and shove down others' throats that we shouldn't celebrate the death of Osama, to some groups now bitching about the code name used for Osama during the operation.

    Ya know what people, put on your damn big girl panties and take a look around. This man was the mastermind of an organization that has killed thousands. According to reports he was reaching for a weapon when shot. Frankly, even if they capped him when he was taking a shit and reading Maxim, he had it coming.

    To hell with a proper burial, with respecting his religion, or his people's damn feelings. To steal a line made by a wise man on facebook..ahem....Five-0: Wrap his body in bacon, then cover him in pig's blood. The terrorists didn't respect or care about a damn one of the people they killed, so why in the hell are we doing it?

    Sheeple, if you stumble along our humble home on the www and you're reading, get your tissues out in case I insult you, then read this slowly. I don't give a damn what your Bible says, what your preacher says, or whatever spiritual leader you turn to says about how to treat others, the fact is, the world is a sick, twisted, violent place, and the animals of society do NOT give a shit what your personal beliefs are before making you a victim. In fact, most of them, criminals, terrorists, and scumbags in general will use your passiveness to their advantage. Guess what, you can still be deeply involved in your faith and practice it to your hearts desire, all while learning to friggin stand up for yourselves and others. Action, whether international in this case, or domestic is and forever will be a deterrant. If you want to roll over and die because you believe "It's your time", then fine. When the shit hits the fan, you'll be one less person to worry about while I protect me and mine. We all control a little more of our destiny than most care to believe.

    If the belief is that it makes us a better, more civilized society, so friggin be it. Whatever helps you sleep better at night. Personally, let these guys see their hero beheaded and dragged behind an F-18 at low altitude as it flies over Afghanistan and Pakistan and I'll bet you they'll have a second thought before F-ing with the red, white, and blue.

    "Now, atleast some in the powerful US Congress want Pakistan punished for its double dealing. The US has already given $20 billion in aid over the eight years - and lawmakers are arguing for a review of future aid. At stake - over $5 billion Obama has sought for next year.
    Congressman Allen West said, "That aid should be cut. It is a waste of taxpayers money.""

    What is going on with the media? I mean we all knew how f'd up they have been, but the people who actually buy into it... "Was the torture needed, what kind of raid was it, what did they call it,..did we have to kill him, how offensive?.."
    Have these people lost their freaking souls? Did you foget over 3000 innocent lives killed in an instant? 5000 more fighting and KIA? I am tired of seeing this nonsense in the headlines. Get a life! But not Osama's, because that murdering coward piece of shit got what was coming to him! Hooah!
    Sorry for the rant.

    Never apologize for a good rant. I agree with you. It's ridiculous.

    I have been listening and have not heard one word from my customers. But then, I try not to listen to their drivel.

    I think bin Laden should have a shrine, and all of his supporters should be required to have a lengthy visit. It should be placed at the bottom of the Mariana Trench.

    Here in NYC there was a bit of jubilant college kids dancing around and cheering at ground zero (Church & Vesey). The media would have you believe there were thousands because the footage they used was at ground level. But if you saw it from the second floor there was maybe about 150 people.

    There was a flag hung on the fence and about 6 or 7 different messages / pictures underneath.

    The media has always been biased and even resorted to creating news when none existed. What I care about, is just the fact that justice is eventually served. As it should be. And to all the rest waiting in succession, I humbly say "NEXT" !

    Thanks for reminding me that I needed to listen to Toby Keith again.




    I may be a Christian but I also firmly believe in the Golden Rule. I know what they say about turning the other cheek, but what goes around comes around and He definitely had it coming. Personally, I think he needed to have his head cut off and dragged through the streets like Al Queda did to so many of our people. If that is barbaric of me, than so be it, but the F-18 idea is a nice touch. The liberals and the sheeple would never go with that so I guess I will have to be happy with the fact that he is no longer living on the face of this earth and enjoying a nice slow burn in hell as a son of perdition along with his buddy Saddam Hussein. The way I look at it is that God willed it and the SEAL's were just a tool in His hands to carry that out. The righteous shall prevail. I mean, come on people, David slew Goliath with a sling and a stone, why should this incident be any different? Just different times and more sophisticated weapons, that's all.

    I like how Obama is trying to take the credit for this kill when the ones that truly deserve the recognition are our US Navy SEAL's. He was just lucky enough to be C in C when this came down. Bush would have done the same thing. Remember, Obama is just one letter away from becoming Osama.
