For the past five days I have been neck-deep in IT shenanigans far beyond my pay grade.   Next week the Raw Deal will take on a new, sleeker and more reader-friendly look.  During the changeover I immersed myself in other blogs for inspiration.  Often, I enjoy taking a break from the norm and find myself reading things of a completely different nature.  This evening I stumbled upon a most unique and entertaining post by Sam Sommers, Ph.D. and Social Psychologist at Tufts university.  Here’s what I found: Read the rest of this entry »

Join The Raw Deal on Facebook.  After speaking with Joanne Galloway, we decided it would benefit our readers to have an additional forum for discussion.  We encourage all our readers to join and share the group.  If anyone has suggestions, please let us know! I can be reached directly at nathanjessup@the-raw-deal.com.

Facebook's "Soldiers Are Not Heroes"

Generally, I refrain from entertaining radical bottom-feeders whose only intention is to ‘stir the pot’. In the case of “Soldiers Are Not Heroes” however, I will make exception. The diseased group on Facebook has roughly 12,000 nut-jobs after the backwards cause. The picture you are looking at nearly caused me to fall out of my seat. I am curious, how do you feel?

As I read through comments on the site (a non-Facebook version is found HERE) I can’t help but recognize how small, radically liberal groups are actually gaining traction from social networking sites like Facebook. While I firmly support our first amendment right to freedom of speech, ignorant hate-speech falls not in such a group.

From what I gather, many of the site’s main contributors seem to be children (21 and under). However, the man responsible for adding the picture in this post, Elliot Waters, seems a bit older. Here’s a small example of what you will find on the group’s page:

“We are currently looking at suggestions by beautiful people that SANH is a religion. Environmentalism as a religion is a current strand of spiritual consciousness widening and deepening throughout the world. Which brings up the fact that war is bad for the environment and the planet. (That is a whole new discussion – lets start it).”
