Can you possibly get your head out of your ass? The whole world ois looking on. The whole world is rooting for her. What the hell is a few bucks. A whole lot of money is going to be spent on NFL games this weekend Money that could have been spent on feeding the poor.
Only because they announced it way ahead of time and turned in into a media circus. If no one but her docs and family knew she was being transferred today, none of this would have been necessary. Ambulances come and go from hospitals all the time - they deliberately made this one into a huge expensive drama.
The “whole world”?? Really? Such typical American arrogance and ignorance, to think that the “whole world” is on the edge of their seats over this shooting.
Hate to break it to ya, but most of the rest of the world is pretty tired of hearing about mass shootings in America. Folks in Haiti, North Korea and Australia, just to name a few, have a whole lot more important shiat on their minds.
Well I sympathize with their problems, but what does that even mean? If they’re tired of hearing about it, why are they listening to it? I’d be damned tired of American Idol, except I don’t watch it, don’t seek it out, and you know what? It’s almost like it doesn’t exist. I didn’t even know it was still on the air.
You know I’m getting tired of these god damn American put downs. You talk trash, slurs, like that, preach your stereotypes, and does it make the world a better place? Nope, it just spreads hate. It’s no different then jackasses trash talking Mexicans, or the British, the Chinese. Hate the government, but don’t paint us all with the same brush.
Americans are typically ignorant and lazy huh? You know it takes arrogance to slander a whole group of people based on where they’re born. By your definitions, you are very American.
There is just no way it could have been kept secret. There were daily briefings. Friends and family members were being interviewed daily. The tabloids were probably trying to bribe staff for inside information on her condition. Even if by some miracle there wasn’t a leak, they had to plan their security arrangements on the expectation that it would leak.
The daily updates are newsworthy, I understand that, but I don’t get why they continue to be the TOP story.
“NEWSFLASH!!! GABBY GIFFORDS HAS JUST OPENED HER EYES! TOMORROW IT’S ANTICIPATED THAT SHE WILL WINK AND A TRICKLE OF A TEAR WILL SLIDE DOWN HER CHEEK!!! STAY TUNED FOR MORE MIRACULOUS UPDATES!!!”
I’m rooting for her, but dayum. I didn’t even know who she was before all this happened, and now I feel as if I don’t drop everything I’m doing when the news reveals another positive sign of her prognosis, I’m not a good American. Can’t the woman heal in private like everybody else?
As to the point of the OP, “Who paid for the whole transfer drama?”, her medical insurance did. U.S. taxpayers, in other words. We’re paying for it, and we’re allowed to sit on the edge of our seats if we like.
I live less than a mile from the hospital where she has been treated here in Tucson. The helicopters circling overhead made this constant noise. And trying to get to the kids’ school (which is 3 blocks from the hospital) with all the police and crowds was a nightmare.
