Kony must be running as a late entry in the gop 2012 election. Probably as an evangelical conservative.

It'll have just as much effect as all the internet stuff at any rate.

I saw a faux "Kony 2012" yard sign this morning. I'm in favor of increasing youth employment options, but I just can't get behind his methods.

KONY is a scam, to get americans to beg for more invasions. ironic that a large oil deposit was just discovered in Uganda. Have you had your two-minute hate today?

I thought it was a scam to save the charity whose sole existence is based on looking for Kony. Wouldn't want to actually find him, lest the money dries up... but looking for him works.

But they don't have to become jaded and cynical. Tell them to think globally but act locally. There may not be a maniacal dictator running around snatching up kids in your town, but I bet there's still plenty of kids who need help...

Yeah, I'm trying to do global awareness with local activity. We're all going to help with a non-breed specific rescue group this weekend as a start, next weekend is a soup kitchen downtown. Things where they can get involved and be hands on.

Africa will break your heart.

Yeah but that requires real work. It's much easier to to just "raise awareness" and look like you give a damn about something. Plus you score more tail on campus that way because you have more free time that you aren't wasting doing real volunteer work.

If the local cops are looking for suspects in this, they likely need look no further than the local high schools, which are both within a mile of that area.

This story should give you an idea of how sleepy a town Lewisville, TX is: Graffiti makes the news, in a town with 95,000 population.

You know, that has actually been the message a few of us jaded, cynical old farts have been passing along to the neighborhood kids - the kids in my area tend to congregate in my backyard, because it's the only yard that allows unfettered access to the creek. This week has been spring break, so I've had a few of the kids show up with packs of soft drinks and knocking on the back door, asking if I can store the drinks in the fridge for them. When I walk a few cans down to them, we've been discussing the Kony 2012 stuff.

I told them I thought it was a great idea to have concern for others, but Ugandan warlords have a history of not giving a rat's ass about the opinions of people who aren't shooting at them. I gave them my opinion that their energy would be better used to help out local folks - like organizing food drives to benefit the food banks in the area, toy and book drives for the kids in the area hospitals and things like that.

Yeah, volunteering requires real work but let me tell you something...colleges eat that shiat up. When I was in college, all of my scholarships were a result of my volunteer work. Now that I'm out of college and in "Corporate America", I still volunteer when I can and my company eats that shiat up too! I'm even given PTO to volunteer, which is pretty sweet.

And as to your point about scoring more tail by not volunteering...I scored plenty of tail while volunteering. Only I'm not a guy, so it wasn't actually tail but you get my point...

I remember reading a book a while back, and his hypothesis about the reason why developed countries no longer fight, is that we have several hundreds years of killing each other underneath our belts. The tribes of Africa, while they have a history of killing each other, have never had a chance to kill each other on this scale, and so, are simply working out human tendencies on each other.

I say give Africa a hundred years of murdering, genocide, and rampant poverty before something will change.

Aarontology: It'll have just as much effect as all the internet stuff at any rate.


I admit that African politics isn't exactly my major course of study, but I was under the impression that the LRA had pretty much been neutered or at least settled down into the usual irrelevance. According to Wikipedia the LRA only has about 300 members nowadays (half of those being abductees), which would seem to support my impression. They've also apparently been forced out of Uganda and are pissing off people in Congo now.

Yaxe: I say give Africa a hundred years of murdering, genocide, and rampant poverty before something will change.


Some of the colonial states are doing just fine. South Africa, for instance, is relatively civilized, as is northern Africa. And western Africa, while not really up to democracy in all of its nations yet, is at least relatively stable. But yeah, in general the central bits of the continent seem to be operating in the 1600s in European terms, racially-driven wars and semi-feudal states and religious crusades all over the damned place.

I had no idea what a Kony was. I've seen it around on xbox live(yeah, i'm a gaming peasant) on people's clan tags in CoD. Typically clan tags are for a group you belong to and/or support, a kind of mini-label. Ends up, I'm quite disturbed by the type of people I end up playing games with(through random matches mind you), because there is a rather large number of them about.

He doesn't really get into the meat and potatoes of it but he does a good job lambasting Invisible Children.

I agree. Invisible Children is basically how white middle class Americans get to feel like they've actually done something to help impoverished black people without actually doing anything.

Story here. Yeah, it's creepy as hell. An organization making a killing (pun intended) off the reputation a warlord, even though the very folks they're claiming to "help" are as pissed at them as the warlord's supporters for making the video. The "charity" is anything but, and they're backpedaling furiously as more & more attention gets shined on these exploitative asshats.
