    Are you getting tired of the Balloon Boy story?

    For awhile now, the media has been dedicating there precious time and efforts to the "Balloon Boy" story. I think they are giving this story far too much attention then it deserves! I'm even starting to wonder if this will go on longer then the death of Michael Jackson

    Re: Are you getting tired of the Balloon Boy story?

    Actually what I am getting tired of the preview guide channel they are still talking about Michael Jackson while I am trying to find something to watch on tv on. They need to take Jackson's dick out of their mouths and shut the **** up about him already. He is DEAD!! D-E-A-D dead! Its bad enough I have to watch parts of reruns of reality shows with has-beens in their desperate attempts to hopefully get noticed by someone important by trying to loose weight or live in a house with other has-beens or parts of American idol losers talking about American idol or partos their red carpet show where they have some washed up old hag who wasn't really a celebrity at all to begin with who thinks she is fooling everyone with her plastic surgery with their leech daughter trying milk what ever fame her mother did have while interviewing real celebrities, although I think now they have a washed up musician interviewing doing that now. Its bad enough I have to watch parts of all that crap when I am waiting for the list to scroll through so I can see what the **** in on channel 55 or 58. That balloon boy and his media whore attention seeking family is actually a breath of fresh air compared to all that other crap they talk about tv. The only thing that would make this more interesting is the boys parents being forced to reimburse all the taxpayers for all the services of law enforcement and anything else that occurred as a result of their hoax. These douchebags are no better than selfish ****s who misuse the Amber alert system just so they can get their car back,that runway bride,that judge who sued for millions of dollars over a pair of pants, some skank who sleeps with a celebrity and cries rape so she can try to milk him for money or someone else who misuses or abuses the law enforcement or the legal system.

    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    I didn't start following the story until after the boy was found hiding, so I'm not tired of it yet.

    Watch the Mr. Jefferson episode of South Park for some real humor about Michael Jackson being D-E-A-D.
