9/11 

Saw this story on CNN.  It's the photo art work of some guy name Jonathan Hobin. Google images search.

I would put Jonathan Hobin right up there with Gaga and Trump is PR abilities.

Well it's certainly not to my taste, but I think he's trying to send a message about the kind of violence that kids are exposed to nowadays. Seems like a bit of a warning to me. But there's also something that seems kind of perverted about it.

That is kinda scary for kids their age. They are so impressionable. They might like the idea of flying a plane into a building some day and wonder why.

Not controversial at all. They are depicting war. I played with army men when I was younger. I've played with pretend fighter planes that dropped bombs. I've played with model fire engines and police cars. I've played video games like Call of Duty. No big deal. Nothing to see hear. Move on.

Modern-day cops and robbers, cowboys and indians, allies and nazis.

I agree 11:48 move on. But perhaps you have lived in a stable environment. Some kids are lucky to survive childhood at all and grow up scarred with built in triggers that can explode at any time. We just never know how people will react sometimes.

I walk down the toy isle at Walmart and a majority of the toys deal with war, violence and killing. There are a few cars, trucks and tractors. The toy cars mostly deal with street racing and violating that law. So teenagers get their plastic flowers where they die along our highways.

I agree with 11:48 abd 12:00. Kids have played good guy/bad guy and cowboys/Indians, etc. since there were people. Who cares? This is a non-topic.

Yes, we must find a way to recognize an individual's triggers so we can intervene before they actually commit a crime. We can make the world a safer place for our children by locking up those who are likely to "explode at any time."

As a matter of fact, I'm feeling a little cranky now. I think I better turn myself in before I slap somebody.

Because a "conservative" would never try to profit or get attention over such a thing, amirite?


"I'm just a middle-aged, middle-eastern camel herdin' man
I got a little, 2 bedroom cave here in North Afghanistan
Things used to be real nice and they got out of hand when they moved in
They call themselves the Taliban
(ooooo yeah the taliban) (taliban baby)

Now I ain't seen my wife's face since they came here
They make her wear a scarf over her head that covers her from ear to ear
She loves the desert and the hot white sand
But man she's just like me, nah she can't stand
The Taliban (ooo taliban baby)

You know someday soon we're both gonna saddle up and it'll be
Ride Camel Ride
My old lady she'll be here with me, smilin right by my side
We should do just fine out around Palestine or maybe Turkmenistan
We'll bid a fair adieu and flip the finger to the Taliban
(oh yeah the taliban) (baby)

I know where you comin from brother!
This is a patriotic love song
So y'all feel free to salute if you want,
You got my permission.

Now they attacked New York City cause they thought they could win
Said they would, stand and fight until the very bloody end
Mr Bush got on the phone with Iraq and Iran and said "Now, you
sons-of-bitches you better not be doin any business with the taliban"
(Taliban baby)

So we prayed to Allah with all of our might
Until those big U.S. jets came flyin one night
They dropped little bombs all over their holy land
And man you should have seen em run like rabbits, they ran
(the taliban)

You know someday soon we're both gonna saddle up and it'll be
Ride Camel Ride
My old lady she'll be here with me, smilin right by my side
We should do real fine out around Palestine or maybe Turkmenistan
We'll bid a fair adieu and flip a couple fingers to the Taliban
(oh yeah, taliban)
we'll bid a fair adieu and flip a big boner to The Taliban (baby)"
