9. Americans are not very good at math, and they stink at probabilities, so this isn't

all that surprising.

Over 5 million homes foreclosed since the criminal enterprise of the banks collapsed, and over 50,000 families a month still being yanked out of their homes. Millions of good paying jobs are now so much smoke, continuing to be replaced with shit jobs by the millions, where they are replaced at all.

Shootings don't even come close to that. On the other hand, viewing multiple news reports about any shooting is far more likely than a story about how your corporation is screwing you, or about families being made homeless by criminals who are being funded by our tax dollars.

Thanks for posting that. It does a good job of showing the effectiveness of propaganda and television "news" at distracting people from the real dangers in their lives.
