I think thats great....but....here again, more subversive mind control by the media...what?

its like this....this is the "i'm a special snowflake, i should be rewarded for doing the right thing"...

somehow what any normal person with a moral compass would do is now "special"....this sub par race to socialistic mind set is beat into your minds repeatedly...

Its great he did "the right thing" but how many wouldn't....i think most here would have done the same thing....but you must be reminded that doing what is right and normal is above and beyond the call of duty...that's where it gets fishy....

I am not suggesting that the ij has"intentionally" done what I am saying, as much as they themselves are already molded into such ways of thinking

Why can't you accept the story for what it is - a warm, compassionate,
heartwarming story. It's nice to read about the good people instead of
all the negative stories about bad people. Chill out and give credit where it
is due - he was a good samaritan.

Your negativity and suspicion--and obviously political agenda--amaze me in the wake of such a good story. Is it "normal" for people to stop and help? Well, no, too often they don't. Recently, scores of people walked by a bleeding man lying on a sidewalk. And that story prompted the retelling of the famous Kitty Genovese case in Queens, where her screams went unaided by over 20 neighbors. They could have saved her and didn't. Unfortunately, there are similar stories where people did not want to get "involved." When you start complaining that the "news media" never carries any good news based on some motive, think back to your complaint about this story.

He probably was laid off from some corporate job two years ago.

At least he HAS a job AND is a wonderful Samaritan. That's more than I can say for a lot of people in these crappy times.

There are many professional child care workers, too, Steph. What is your problem with his profession? Pet care and dog walking are very rewarding and many caring people are in that profession as can be seen in this article. Where did you get your degree? The University of Negative Bad Vibes?

I never would complain about "no good news"...I only engage in forums, where "real news" is... I will not watch tv....ever....I will not listen to the radio...I analyze only newsprint, basically to study their methods...most "real" news is now availible on select sites isolated from the controlled media...95% of media is controled...I am able to see this story for what it is...I applaud the man, I would not compare citizens such as our community to those in a big city, it is a known fact that people "dis-associate" noise in urban areas, I think most would have done the right thing there too, but background noise is elevated and involvement is limited due to adaptive requirements in most people based on daily sensory overload.

That being said, without getting into long stories, lets just say I know i'm right, and thats ok if you disagree, most people who have been slowly, subversilvy brainwashed are unaware of the fact. your plyability to group think and a desire to be "positive" instead of realistic are all symptomatic extensions of brainwashing. Brainwashing is a term that has negitive conitations, but really it is just a way of manipulating people by replacing their own thought with "someone" elses. Most people have formulated their opinions about their enviroment based on others perceptions...

On the surface, to you and the editors it is a "feel good" story, and

I suppose one could say it is news worthy...

On the other hand it is re-enforcing "being special" for being normal...this way of thinking leads to large problems when implimented on a large scale....just look at a large percentage of young people today, entitled....that leads to expecting something for nothing and handouts, which leads to the lowest common denominator and socialism

How is that you have come to associate saturday with "partying"?...

who told you saturday was the day?, was it because ALL the others work monday through friday, and it is expected for the GROUP of you to "have fun" on the weekend?...your words tell the tale of others thoughts now being yours...
