re: George Zimmerman Is Buying Tactical Shotguns (129 comments)

Exceptionally well thought out, informed, and intelligent post Brooke. Unfortunately I, also, think that it’s time to remove The Superficial from the spot it’s held on my Bookmarks Toolbar for the last 6 or 7 years. I am well aware that Fish won’t lose any sleep over it, but it’s just gotten SO tiresome.

C’mon Fish. Take an hour off from scouring the internet for superficial news and do some actually reading up on this case Just read some of the comments on this thread, you will become infinitely more well-informed than you appear to be… unless you ARE just trolling for clicks. We can survive a day with one less post about Amanda, Rihanna, or The Maple Christ, but I don’t know how many more of these Zimmerman posts we can handle. This is just becoming sad…

Even more amusing… Business Insider has deleted the quote from their article, but the headline is STILL “17 Things Jenny McCarthy Has Actually Said”.

If you are still reading this (you REALLY need to get out more), I imagine you are wishing that I had just made my initial comment and left it at that, aren’t you?
I am expecting to get a lot of abuse & thumbs down for this one…

p.s. Thanks for not taking the easy route by calling me a racist!

My so-called “valid retort” to his comments… Unfortunately in this day and age, this really wouldn’t have been a story until everyone dog-piled on the racial angle. I will admit to being morally outraged when I first heard the story and saw the attached photo of an angelic, smiling 12 year old, and I bought into the media hype. It was only after I heard rumblings that things weren’t quite so cut and dried that I began to question things. How many weeks (months?) went by before any major media outlet actually provided any more recent photos? Trying to sort out fact from fantasy, I read up on the case on MANY different sites, expressing radically different, and sometimes shockingly offensive viewpoints, but pretty much all the evidence supports Zimmerman’s claims. Admittedly it is true that only 2 people know what actually happened that night, and one will never be able to give his side, but both parties clearly made regrettable decisions that ended one life and destroyed another.

Yes, my original post may have made me come across as a one of the “troglodytes” and knuckle-dragger trolls that very rarely have anything of importance to add to a conversation (First! Fist, …etc), but I just wanted to make a quick comment to say that maybe Fish might want to rein it in a little. Could I have chosen my words more effectively? Perhaps, but once you hit “submit”, there’s no turning back.

To finally get to the main issue at hand, I respect his position on the whole Trayvon Martin / George Zimmerman ordeal, he is certainly entitled to his opinion, although it differs from mine. The problem I have is that he has been shoving it down our throats ever since the “not guilty” verdict came in. You tell me that I can just skip his social commentary / political posts, but in the last week or so, how many posts have contained completely unrelated references to the case? I don’t have the desire (too lazy) to do the research to give you a total, but it has happened enough that I have NOTICED it.

Full disclosure… if I thought this was the best site to come to for a T&A fix, I have clearly not grasped the concept of online porn. There are literally millions of other sites where I could find that. I’ll be honest, I very rarely feel compelled to click on the NSFW images to get rid of the pink stars. That is NOT why I come here. I come for, strangely enough, superficial reasons. I come here to see quasi-celebrities, desperate famewhores, and douchebags being “justifiable”-y ridiculed and lampooned. Does it make me feel better about myself? No, but it “entertains” me.
The first time I ever came on here was when Katie Holmes first started (fulfilling her contractual obligation) seeing Tom Cruise. I don’t even know if it is the same writer as back then, but he made reference to her monkey toes in one of the funniest posts I have ever read. I have been coming back ever since. He (they) has a way with words that I connect with. I find him amusing, and quite often, I also find him rather thoughtful, eloquent, and dare I say, respectful when the situation calls for it.
