No Kony posters today?

I've been all around Brandon all morning and never saw a single poster. Just curious if the groups that had planned to get out and hang posters did in fact do this.  
 
...Or maybe the fact that it coincided with 4/20 ruined their motivation & they hung out in McDonald's instead...

I know a lot of people who ordered the 'action kits' for them. and never received them. they ordered them pretty much the same day the video came out. there is obvious problems in uganda. but I personally won't support a person who gets naked and masterbates in public. lots of other organizations to donate too (:

....ummmm

I guess you people don't follow the news much. The guy who did the Kony video scammed all the donation money. He was also was arrested for doing a "peewee herman." I would say the act, but Adam might yell at me.

More important things like playoffs and politics.. And twitter. (if it's not on twitter, it didn't happen)

really?

Im sorry, but wasting paper and hanging a bunch of posters is not going to help the cause WHATSOEVER. Kony 2012 is, at most, a fad.

I can't find any info saying he scammed the money. His public nudity was attributed to some sort of nervous/mental breakdown, and he was hospitalized, not arrested or charged with any crime.

Honestly, I thought we were trying to move beyond stigmatizing people with mental illness, even on eBrandon.

who hasn't

gotten naked and m****d (er, you know the word). He has some issues like 99.9% of us do.  
I believe in the KONY cause. Makes the dictators and the d*cks of the world think twice with the global media the way it is these days. Don't mess with the youth of today. They can see thru the sh*t and lies and the political propaganda and will fight for truth and justice.  
 
Have a good one folks.

Problems

We all got problems, sure, but we all aren't running through the streets naked jerkin it are we? So you have to wonder, was it just the scrutiny that came with him making this video? Was it the fame? Was it that he was getting caught in his scam? Or that he had been scammed himself by his partners? I don't know what went on, but dude has bigger than normal problems.  
 
The silence from everyone who went crazy with KONY fever now now clearly shows how serious all these suddenly bleeding heart humanitarians were about this stuff. KONY was a fad, like skinny jeans or something. People thought it was cool to act like they cared and were going to do something about it. Most did nothing, and once there was something else to divert their attention, it turns out they didn't care that much at all.  
 
People who were informed and cared, likely knew about horrible things like child soldiers, drug addiction, conflict minerals, civil war, genocide, and cannibalism in Africa before 2012, and continue to inform themselves. People who only cared because people were posting it as their status on Facebook, and retweeting it Twitter never really cared, and won't bother to inform themselves as to what is happening now, and not 5 years ago.

Ain't that nice

..

whether koby is alive or dead you should all watch the movie "machine gun preacher" it is based on a true story about a man who was a druggy biker who found god and went over there during the koby ruling era and helped change alot of things over there, him and his family are still over there to this day.
