    No...actually...I dont. Giving the pretense of caring is as bad as someone walking up to you and patting you on the head and patronizing you. You still deal with the misery AND you feel like **** because someone just patted you on the head and pretended to care.

    And on a global scale? No...I dont think telling the rest of the world that our ever so effective response to atrocities will be sad pandas with pouty mouths and signs.

    Pretense on who's part? Just random people online? Myself? The president and the first lady? Who are you talking about?

    That's not true. I know at funerals for family members, I was VERY grateful for the love and support I received. Just because you and a few others seem to have a chip on your shoulders, doesn't mean everyone else has to be a negative ninny.

    Do you think the kidnapped girls or their captors are aware of those hashtags?

    I think their captors are and are emboldened.

    We'll have to promote the urgency for Michelle O. to send out more hashtag messages insisting she wants her girls back. That would help everyone's self esteem.

    Or she COULD just post selfies with her stank face. I read somewhere that both of these women died less than three days after receiving 'the look'...

    I think it's not fanaticalism (is that a word?) that's the problem. It's trying to force one's own views on others, and what you do to force your views on them. You can be fanatical as to yourself, and it's no one's business.

    That is not the point. The point was to try and put pressure on the government in any way that an individual possibly can.
