    Please don't bring this onto the forum too..been pissing me off all day. All over Facebook and Youtube. Its just the Internet's little pet project this week..a couple of days and everyone will have moved onto the next thing. Remember SOPA and those other acts? Yeah, don't see anyone talking about them anymore.

    People just jump on these stupid bandwagons to inflate their damn egos.

    A very ignorant response indeed. I don't give crap about SOPA and I never did. People don't have the time to help others in need, but now apparently they get pissed off just by LOOKING or HEARING at these videos.

    "How dare this video waste precious seconds of my life! I would have found the cure for cancer and AIDS if it hadn't been for this lousy video"

    what's wrong with sharing a video that can help someone make a difference?

    But the thing is this won't make a difference..it really won't. What I say is true, mark my words. In a matter of days/weeks people will lose interest and move onto something else. I would bet money on that.

    But that still isn't reason enough to stop the people who are trying. I know I won't be a direct ppart of the movement and that's why I thought it was the least I could do. Its perfectly fine if you think it won't work but what's the worst thing that can happen if you DO spread the message?

    For example I shared the video last night on Facebook and especially requested people to not ignore it. 15 hours past and no one bothered, no likes or shares. Atleast I tried and did what I could. It only took a second to hit the share button, and maybe someone will share my post again. I don't want to sound cliche and stuff but so many movements in history started with countless people doubting it will work.

    basically what they are advocating...is that the U.S. should violate the sovereignty of any nation it wants even if it isn't a compelling defense or economic purpose for the U.S...i bet these were teh same people saying no to the Iraq war. Its just nonsense. Not our problem. I have no prolem providing aid to the children to but to fight another persons war is just stupid. We don't have the money r the will power.

    What's the point of being pissed about it? Nobody is forcing you to participate. Granted, 99% of the status messages on my FB are this Kony thing, but I'm not gonna rage over it. o_O

    Posts like these make me acknowledge and respect the people who work towards such causes even more. Its amazing how quickly people jump the gun and turn a deaf ear when the narrator of the video spent 8 FRIGGIN YEARS fighting for this even when it was not his problem. And the truth is he is just one of many doing so.

    Meh... I posted the video in a few places. I broke down. I don't think it'll help anything, but it certainly won't hurt anything.

    So in other words, you acknowledge and respect people who pretend to do something for the cause, and then not really do anything for the cause?

    Kinda strange.

    I agree. Iraq or Libya anyone? Raise the money in not for profit, get volunteers, recruit other humanitarian organization. Leave the u.s. military, our personelle and dollars out of it.

    As honorable of a movement as this is, it won't accomplish much- if anything at all. Even if Kony is captured, someone else will just take his place. This will just end up being a revenge mission.

    Probably because we accomplished our goal and got SOPA shelved, so your point is moot.

    What they're advocating is that the civilized world should sit around and selfishly think of their own concerns when there are people suffering.

    It's a violation of human rights. Shouldn't the United Nations supposed to do something about it?
