Shame – the feeling you have of embarrassment or distress when you know that you have done something wrong or foolish
60 Minutes (4/3/2011) –Foreclosures – the latest in our examples of Shame
Did this story of falsifying documents come to light because of a whistle blower – oh no. It was because they picked the wrong person to foreclose on. They (the banks we bailed out) picked an attorney who specializes in falsification of documents. The poor duped people who signed thousands of documents a day with other people’s names and posing as “Vice Presidents” of banks were told they weren’t doing anything wrong. No really how deceived can you be, no one ever told you it was wrong to sign someone else’s name? These foreclosures put real people out on real streets, does anyone feel like they did anything wrong?
The Minister – no really – I never met a Minister like this.
Why is it necessary to give air time to sick individuals? This man certainly is not a representative of the thinking of the average American. Yet what are people thousands of miles away to think when our own networks give this media hound coverage? The networks are truly shameless in their greed for headlines at any cost. Then when the cost becomes so obvious – mobs, murder, anger, and outrage they take the opportunity to exploit again by televising with the very caring and credible face of Diane Sawyer.
All dressed up – with a dirty neck. It doesn’t fool anyone. If there was more integrity in what is aired, no one would have let the world see what this one sick man was doing.
The Wedding – Really?
Are Americans really so starved for every bit of information about a wedding across the pond? And how will all of the information regarding the cost of every minute detail of this event sit with the average Brit. Haven’t they just had an enormous amount of human services reduced due to financial shortages.
Yet we are led to believe that somehow this is the event of the decade. Tell that to the Japanese that are still without homes and under the threat of radiation. What about the Haitians, but no that was yesterday’s news.
