Now that just isn't cool. Whatever happened to some sense of decency?

I agree. This is just all sorts of fuckin' wrong. But on the other hand, I'm glad to see there are still people out there that are willing to be politically incorrect in public.

That is truly awful. It made me laugh that anyone could be that dumb...

After 9/11 people talked about how the country had changed and how everything was going to be different. So people bought lots of little American flags and attacked anyone with a negative thing to say about the country.

Welcome to the aftermath. We lost a few rights, people are argueing the value of a relative, and we have a TV show now that tortures people while they answer easy trivia questions.

Same shit, different day.

Oh, come on!! You didn't actually believe all that "better, friendlier, more considerate America" shit, did you? On the other hand I'm actually glad that it didn't happen. This country has too many pussy-whipped, whiney, PC dickheads as it is. I mean look at this shit with the memorial statue for the WTC. I'm not even going to bother with the entire state of Cali. Enough already!!

Re:
Tasteless is tasteless. That ad was done in bad taste, period. There's no excuse, or reason for it. There are many *other* campaigns that could have been used...but, to exploit the deaths of others is wrong. Regardless of country. *shrugs* This is just an opinion...be it 'pc' or otherwise.

Not that I disagree with you, but this is a business that makes it's money based on the fact that we all know we're going to die eventually. In a way, they are already exploiting people's deaths. I still say it's nice to see people be publicly obnoxious.

Re:
publicly obnoxious is one thing..outright tasteless another. This is just offensive. Yes, I maintain its in their right...its also in my right to find such a campaign offensive. To me, that ad just went beyond 'obnoxious'.

I believed it would happen as much as I believe in the Easter Bunny. When it lasted over a week I worried a bit, but as I originally thought nothing came of it.
I see know harm in a memorial though. Those who forget history are doomed to repeat it, and we do need to remember that it happened.

A. Forgetting what happened is a bit difficult with the big gaping hole in the middle of downtown, and a big blank spot in the NYC skyline.

B. No, there's nothing wrong with putting up a memorial, although I'm pissed that it's going to be instead of the new towers, and not inside one of the new towers. I was specifically talking about the whole race issue that's going on right now. They were going to build the monument based on an actual photograph taken of 3 men putting up a flag on top of the rubble shortly after the towers came down. The three guys just happened to be white. Naturally, since the monument was going to be in based on a real-life event captured on camera, the people in the statue were going to be 3 white men putting up a flag. I'm sure you can see where this is headed.

Re:
First, why does it have to be racial? If its based on a photograph...well, that's chance. *shrugs* I personally wouldn't care if it were 3 white men, 3 black men, 3 arabian men, 3 indian men or whatever. If you want to get down to it, it can be a sex thing too. There's no women in that memorial. Its all men. Here again, is there really much of a point to it, other than throwing a fit? "Look, look! I wasn't included in the statue!" Big deal. Look at the greater idea of it. As far as I know, people are not being not included in the memorial due to sex, race, religion, etc.
