  •  TiMT was making the claim that (5+ / 0-)

    people were 'celebrating closure'.  I made the very real point that you simply don't see that happen in real life.

    People cry, people thank God, people are thankful when some monster who killed their family is put away or killed.  They don't jump up and down cheering, waving flags, and chanting jingoistic slogans.

    Do you really feel he was 'being honest' in making the claim that people were 'celebrating closure'?  Do you have ANY other evidence to show that people 'celebrate closure' as he claimed?

    •  joy, relief, and yes a sense of closure. (7+ / 0-)

      expressed various ways when people are in small groups and in various OTHER ways when they're in large ones.

      I'm sure you get what I'm saying.  that's why I'm disappointed in this diary.

      you're basically saying that large groups of average citizens should behave publicly like the POTUS does when making a statement to cameras.

      that makes no sense to me, in any way.  and again, I think you know better, which is why I label this 'manufactured outrage'.

      people were celebrating closure but you will pull shit our of your ass to pretend to know what I think. Oh well, I forgot your telepathic powers to knowing what I think is quite an amazing projection as usual. Quite this bullshit while you are ahead.
