    Uh.......does Iran/Contra ring a bell? Maybe it was before your time. (Reagan/Bush exchanging arms for hostages....leading to the infamous Reagan speech :My heart wants to believe I didn't lie to the American people...but the facts say otherwise)

    Gosh. How on earth will IS, the irresponsible media, those who go out of their way to watch the execution videos and any other asshole who exploits their death possibly survive without all the graphic images and other propoganda to entertain them throughout their day?
    Why do we fall?
    So we can learn to pick ourselves up.
