What Is Up With This Kid?



I mean your dad has died in Afghanistan and you're dancing around on the Today Show like you're at Frilly's after a few brewskis on Karaoke Night.  Dude! Have a little respect. (And a good slap on the back of the head from mom wouldn't have been a bad idea either.)

And just when you think you're through shaking your head, the family gets a bunch of crap from Walmart to make them feel better.

What's up with the kid is that he has just lost his Daddy who has probably been deployed or gone most of his life in service to his country. He was distracted by seeing himself on television and different people young or otherwise have different ways of expressing their grief. These wars we are in are taking a tremendous toll on our military families. If they got some things from Walmart, that is small in comparison to what they have lost.

I'm usually at the front of the line when it comes to inappropriate comments on here, but I have to agree with 3:10
It starts out as a kid doing something that can go viral, then the family finds all those folks that donated, and showed up at their house - and this is after losing someone in the war

The kid is the product of bad parenting. He may not even fully understand the loss that has occurred with the death of his father. I think the mother is trying to keep things as normal as she can for her family.

Barry has been a step for a few months and now he's a parenting expert! By the way, liberal wussies do not slap or wack kids!

Very sad time for the family. The little boy, I don't think he understands he has lost his daddy.
Still though, if my kid acted like that I would not be smiling. To each his own, I guess. May God bless this family, they need his guidance. May God Bless us all.

who goes to frillys anyways anymore? my buddy said they have started hiring older chicks to work in there now instead of the young hot ones they used to have. first sign things or going down hill quick when you start replacing 20 somethings with 30 somethings.

I must also agree with 3:10. Some of you are just downright rude and disrespectful. This is a young boy that saw himself on camera and was fascinated. I wouldn't want my child to do that on national television, but it couldn't be helped at the time. I don't think it is in any way indicative of whether they are grieving appropriately or not. Who's to say how we'd act under similar circumstances?

6:11--------------------------

Yes, may god bless us all. Thanks.
Mind if I take a pass on that one?
Seems god has already blessed us all. Some he blessed with brains, others with good looks. Why, some he even blessed with tornadoes, others with earthquakes. He had lots of blessings to pass out. Take those two female units. For them, a healthy appetite and some extra blubber for those cold winters. And that kid? Blessed with about half a brain, give or take. He had some spare time so he blessed a few Burmese and North Koreans with hunger and misery. And some Frenchmen with bad body odor. Nationality notwithstanding, there was some alcoholism and drug dependency needed bestowing on folks at random. Hell, he even blessed my dog with an uncontrollable urge to pee on random things in the house and hump the cat occasionally just for???

God's blessings are wearing me down to the point that I almost don't even appreciate his blessing 52% of the population with the wisdom to elect a narrow minded bigoted loser as leader of the free world. But then again, AIDS should give us all pause to appreciate his wonder.

Thanks again. Remind me to call god again when something else really needs to be blessed. He's had a lot of practice.

I would have been so embarrassed especially, due to the circumstances of the interview.

1:19 You do make a lot of since. Don't think I will say God bless us all again. But, a lot of the things you mentioned as blessings are the works of the devil. And, most of the bad things that happen to people is caused not by blessings, but by choices they make.

BTW I teeter between believing the Bible and believing it was only written by a higher power to control the masses, so you can't really trust what I say.

Happy Holidays (being Christmas and New Years).

9:07 I think it was written to control the masses. I don't think God give a rats a** about our day to day lives. some folks want to attribute all good that comes to God and all bad to the Devil, but I think it's all just life. God sits up there and watches us and is entertained but doesn't intervene. That's my thoughts, anywho.

The fact that the little boy lost his daddy doesn't automatically bestow him with the wisdom of an older person. He's just a little boy who was fascinated with what was going on around him. What do some of you more intolerant commenters think the mother should have done, yank him up and beat the tar out of him on national television? I'm sure she was embarrassed, but sheesh. It's funny how you can watch a 4 minute news segment and assume you know enough about them to sit there and judge them.

Another thing that bothers me is it appears some people think these people are undeserving of recognition of their loss because they're overweight. I wonder how many of the people talking about the weight of the people in the story are in top physical form themselves. It's too bad you weren't blessed with the ability to show compassion along with your bountiful good looks.

9:30 I've often wondered what those who bash the overweight look like...I'm sure they're all perfect specimens of humanity themselves! (sarcastic of course)

Those of us with a less than positive attitude toward these people is more of commentary of how beaten down we are by mass media to trade on the misery of others. Remember folks, its sweeps time.Sorry if the comments left here are less than uplifting.
