Cancer is funny because people die facebook page

 I thought I better write that it's a facebook page in the title . I wouldn't want anyone to think I find that kind of thing funny.

Anyhow, have you seen this? It's circulating all over facebok. Frankly, I find it disturbing and Freedom of Speech and all that bs can kiss my a** in this situation!

There are various groups against this sick and hateful page! I hope something is done. I realize people are always going to be mean and there are more pages just as bad.

Anyhow, I signed the petition in the name of my Niece who died back in November. So hell yeah, this is personal.

I've seen it and reported it. The boy who made it says he created it because his father died of cancer and his mom used humor to ease the pain.
That doesn't make it right in my opinion. He posts shit about children dying from cancer and laughs about it. He isn't using his right to freedom of speech. He's intentionally hurting people who are already hurting.

That page isn't funny, but the members faces might be if I got a hold of them. I would kick them so far up their asses they would have a butt for a set for a lips.

 He needs help and some sort of counselling. There is no excuse for it though. My brother lost his daughter back in November and is in horrible agony over the loss.

He isn't using freedom of speech, nope. It's just what others say people like him are doing though. Whenever someone says something like this the whole freedom of speech is said. I hate that copout!

 Wow. That is just awful and then some. I have lost several family members to cancer and one is dying of throat cancer, stage 4, now. How can people even remotely think that this is funny? I swear, then people wonder why I am so dead set against my children being so "out in the world". I want them to know that that type of humor isn't humorous at all! I swear, I do hope the next generation gets better than the one we see today, then again, from the stuff you read on here, that is sadly not likely. I  am done ranting now.
