Unbelievable! Souvenir 'Together We Thrive' Logo T-Shirts Placed on Chairs at "Memorial"
Wednesday, January 12, 2011 | Kristinn

Is it a memorial or an Obama rally? Souvenir t-shirts emblazoned with the logo for the 'Together We Thrive' gathering at the University of Arizona were placed on chairs at the arena ahead of the memorial.

It's odd for a memorial to a mass murder to have a logo, but it's crass to hand out souvenir t-shirts.

Tucson High School juniors Kiersten Jund and Melanie Hanson, both 17, had a pizza delivered to them in line. They skipped school and had been waiting in line since 10:15 a.m. for a chance to hear Obama speak. "We're probably going to learn more here than in school," Jund said. "It's a once in a lifetime opportunity," Hanson said.

Yeah dude, too bad about those six dead people and all but hey, it's all good.

“Officials opened the doors at 4 p.m., and the crowd cheered.”

I am not sure what they did but I copied and pasted it just the way it was written not 10 minutes ago. Some editor probably changed it in an update. They didn’t mention anything about the doctor and his family. Now the whole part about the doors opening at 4:00 that preceded it isn’t even there.

And a puppet show..not like I have anything against puppets cause I love puppets but this is ridiculous. I saw the photos of those shirts being handed it, it looks more like a playoff game than a memorial event. This is disgusting..I wonder if the victims families care that their loved ones are being used like this. Don’t be shocked when Obama comes out to speak you hear “Yes we can, yes we can”

We need that video of Clinton leaving someone’s funeral where he is smiling and then when he realizes he is being filmed...and he acts all sad. It’s a classic.

Six innocent people died, 14 injured (some with a future of pain/disability/nightmares)....and all I got was this lousy T-shirt.

With a little better advanced planning they could have brought Paul down from MN for all the festivities.

Yet another reason to have a large hard drive in your PC...

To save history from being rewritten by the enemedia.
