    Mixed up world we live in

    Whitney Houston died yesterday due to crack or some other drugs. People of America consider this a tragedy and blow up twitter with RIP posts and express their extreme sadness.

    Meanwhile our troops are dying overseas every day and is not even a blip on the radar of most Americans.

    If you agree, and think our country is better than this - Contribute to the movement by posting #rememberthetroops on twitter. God Bless the Troops.

    You could say this about 99% of current events if in fact it's true that combat soldiers are not being paid enough attention.

    I don't do twitter, but I can tell you I care way more about the sacrifices that troops are making than about some aging pop star OD'ing

    Actually, this looks exactly like the annoying-as-hell status update crap that women post on Facebook pushing their social agenda of the minute. I may agree with some of them, but most of the time it's annoying as hell and refuse to participate in any of it.

    Ladies and gentlemen, your textbook case of the "Straw Man" Fallacy.

    I'm "unamerican" because I refuse to litter social media with generic patriotic crap? Bull****.

    I doubt more people actually care much about Whitney Houston dying. Just bigger news because people knew who she was. People that are known by everyone will always get more coverage about everything they do than people nobody knows.

    Instead of #rememberthetroops, is it okay if I post #rememberthechineserailworkers?

    I feel like the effort to complete the first trans-continental railroad is pretty overlooked, and I can't stand the thought of all these people mourning Whitney Houston, when the deaths of thousands of railway workers go basically unremembered.

    Let's take to twitter, everyone!
