Soon after the tragic shooting in Aurora, Colorado during the Batman "Dark Knight Rises" movie, a fairly nifty idea to help the victims was spreading across the internets...
|"Heroes can be real too."|
But would Christian Bale do it? We have all heard about his notorious rant...
Did he have the proper temperament to deal with such a sensitive situation?
Would he even be interested in involving himself?
I'm sorry for posting the above video, Mr. Bale. It was just too good not to. But in fairness to Christian Bale, he has apologized for his infamous rant many times. Christian Bale's apology live on KROQ 106.7
As many of you have already heard, the actor who plays Batman came through, visiting the hospital to meet with victims of the horrific shooting at a showing of "The Dark Knight Rises" in Aurora, Colorado. See the photographs below:

How unbelievably awesome was it, for Christian Bale to do this? I have to say, I am really impressed, and it lifted our spirits to see this, but more importantly, lifted the spirits of the victims. If this mass shooting was a graphic display of how someone can be totally devoid of any empathy or concern for the fellow human beings, this act of kindness, gives us hope that there are people who still care about others.
As for the media in general, they are once again doing absolutely everything wrong, as far as preventing future horrific acts. Listen to the recommendations of a forensic psychiatrist, on the proper way for the media to handle these events, in the video below:
Forensic psychiatrists tell us that when the media turns the perpetrator of one of these murderous acts into a famous "anti-hero", plasters their face across the news 24/7, and sensationalizes death, and violence, it will just encourage copy cats who seek to be the next famous super villain, by giving them both the incentive, and the motivation, to do the unspeakable. So, why does the media keep doing exactly the opposite of what experts on the subject tell them they should do??
Simply in a quest for higher ratings, and to make more money, the media will sensationalize stories like this, despite the facts of being warned of the dire consequences of their actions. Ironically, they have the same attitude the mass murderer who committed this atrocity has... they simply don't give a shit. And this sorry ass attitude has permeated American society, from the top to the bottom. If the people with the most power, and influence, don't care, and they have the biggest stake in society...then why should the average Joe Bagadonuts, just struggling to survive, give a rat's ass about making the world a better place? I think Independent presidential candidate Abraham Fungus Jr. put it best in his "Don't Give a Shit Syndrome: The High Price of Doritos" speech...

Well, in the words of the immortal Forrest Gump... that's all i've got to say about that.
Once again, God bless you, and thank you for your support.
