So is it just me or does Florida’s “stand your ground” gun laws make a little bit more sense now? Between the Trayvon Martin case and the news of a crazed guy going Hannibal Lecture (photos) on some homeless guy I’m rethinking my love for Florida. I mean there is a mysterious case of unstoppable flesh eating bacteria here in Georgia too! Is the CDC (center for disease control) here in Atlanta putting something in the water? Maybe the world IS ending.
What’s my Point?
Whenever the media starts pumping juicy stories into the news circuit almost non-stop I always suspect something. In this case I have two theories.
1. The media is using the latest interest in “end time prophecy” to make money off of us. They play stories like “Flesh Eating Bacteria” and “Zombie Eats Man’s Face” to draw in readers already hyper sensitive. Gore often sales, but perhaps never more than right now. I also theorize that in the coming months the media will really drum up there efforts on the Mayan Prophecy stuff. Maybe a blockbuster coming out soon too?
2. There is something else going on that the media doesn’t want us to pay attention to. Something in the middle east, a new bill getting passed soon, or some other political motive. This sounds a lot like conspiracy theory, but there have been countless bills passed over holidays or in the background behind some other “major story”. This is even a recognized media phenomena.
There are my predictions. Write them down in your little black book.
