Default News that makes you cringe

Post news articles that you see that make your "faith in humanity" counters drop by one.

Pretty much anything that is on the "news" at work makes me lose faith in humanity.

Basic Synopsis:

DALLAS — A woman threw her two young children from a freeway overpass during Wednesday's morning rush before leaping off herself, police said, and all three somehow survived the 22-foot fall into traffic.

wow, just wow.
Some people are so fucking stupid.

I cannot believe they survived. Clearly there is no God if he allowed a lady this stupid to survive. I can see letting the kids, but her? Get out of here.


Dear God,
I am really disappointed.
Not that you care.

Thanks for nothing.

I just see "Dick Cheney" in the news and I lose hope. The fact that he is still alive is depressing.

Just read that earlier today. Did you know that his shares in certain companies have increased 6000% since the start of the Iraq War?
