    "Targeted Individuals"

    I'd never heard of it before reading an article about the Florida State shooter.

    I wouldn't be surprised if this meme becomes more widespread.

    My marketing senses say we just might have a "winner" here ... something with staying power.

    The article is basically about indiviuals who believe they are being targeted by the government.
    With some this might be the case, with some this might not be the case.
    Nothing special about it.

    I've heard of "this type of thing" for decades ... as in people imagining that they are being bombarded with rays or whatever.

    But I hadn't heard it being given the label "Targeted Individuals".

    As someone involved in marketing, I think that's a great name and has potential to become something big.

    How many more episodes of Finding Bigfoot (and not finding Bigfoot) can the people take?

    We need new distractions.

    I get your point now.

    I definitly know that I am being targeted by the evil space lizards. I always hope for my tin foil hat design to catch on fashion wise.[​IMG]

    I'm serious in the sense that it might be the next big thing. People seem to need something mysterious to blame their suffering on, whether it's Dark fibre, Chemtrails, Alien implants, etc.

    There's so much paranoia about the government that the meme might just grow, especially as technological capabilities continue to increase, leaving people to wonder if they're just feeling bad ... or whether someone is making them feel that way.

    How much more serious do you have to get, the US government kidnapped people and tortured them.

    The US Government decided without a trail to kill members of it's own population.

    Sounds like you are morphing into the Soviet Union.:p

    That is a long ways from your average Joe believing that the government is beaming waves (as some form of control) into your chest while you sit at your computer.

    But it is no more far fetched than the US becoming the country that once defended the four freedoms, to the country that now breaks the four freedoms.:p

    I'm sorry ... I'm not buying into the myth of the country you're portraying.

    That country never existed.

    It did to this person who was born in 1944 in post war Europe, and saw the good of the Marshal plan.

    We really did believe, can remember when the Soviets invaded Hungary back in 1956, I was frighten but my parents said don't worry you have an Uncle Sam.

    But the USA of today that is a very different Country.

    Shortly before we were extending such largesse to Europe, we we interring Japanese Americans and continuing segregationists laws.

    America has throughout it's history been selective about who gets to enjoy freedom, and the struggle continues to this day.

    I'm not saying we haven't done great things, just that the myth of "the land of the free" doesn't stand up to the harsh reality that is our history.

    No fair.

    You're only supposed to gloat about things that make your country superior to the U.S.
