Trayvon Martin Shooting discussed, Reasons given by "Polite" Society

Last edited Tue Apr 30, 2013, 09:07 PM - Edit history (6)

Certain elements of our society engage in and promote a rising level of contrived "Fear", then exploit that manufactured anxiety for their own purposes.

The same elements that promote this intolerance rely on that contrived fear as a mechanism of control, based on otherwise insignificant differences between us.

Information is the coin of the realm. Share that currency, stay informed.

1. You might want to reconsider the use of TinyURL or other redirectors

Given the tech that is out there, few will click on such links.

5. OK, understand. Links to links could be not so encouraging to readers, huh?

But the Chauncey DV conversation is worth review, think it's worthwhile if only for context with the trial going on.

Thanks for getting this far on the links, regardless

6. Oh, the "bounce" is an inside joke...

The links, I don't have a problem with URL shorteners, and we have to use them sometimes with URLs that have special characters or spaces.

Thanks for the post.

7. Appreciate the comment, regardless.

If you're "Bouncing" across these links, tho, I'd recommend at LEAST reviewing the first and last on this page.

Again, thanks for the feedback.

3. Thanks for that, I'm not a windoze user, not particularly aware of those "Exploits", are they?

OK, revised the links posted above.

Updated that post to reflect full web adress links.

Again thanks, will bear that in mind for future reference.
