    these dolts believe this? unbelievable he’s been dead for years how gullible can you be

  7. jayjay says:

    It’s a symbolic event, but it changes nothing in terms of our safety or the safety of the world.

    As to those who don’t believe he’s really dead- it’s easier to kill him than to organize such a detailed lie, particularly since, if he were not dead, he’d show up and make a video like he’s done before. although, i have no doubt that there will be “sightings”. people believe what they want to believe.

    Showing a picture would not be proof enough to those who want to think it’s a lie and would definitely be inflammatory, so what would be the point?

    I am more excited than most other poeple. This is a really great news, and the fiming was so good, too.

    I mean, were it not for this big news, the media would have bombarded us with that tabloid stuffs of “William-this” or “Kate-that” for another two weeks at least. To finish off this stupid royal wedding franzy, we really needed a big news, and WOW, THIS is a big news. More importantly, this is a GOOD news.

    [Question: Quite a few years ago, the Spanish crown prince got married. Were Mexicans as excited about that wedding as we Americans were about this Brithis wedding? Why are we acting as if we are still a British colony?)

    1. Lennie says:

      Sorry, “fiming”–> “timing”.

      1. Bschp says:

        :Hi Prep News Crew!I can’t believe the irnmovemept you guys have shown since your last news report.The backgrounds are very interesting. Where did you film your report?I thought that the host used a very clear speaking voice. In fact, everybody spoke at a good, clear pace.Perhaps next time everybody could make their voices just a bit louder.What a great effort. Keep it up.From Mr KT in the MLU. Hi There Mr KT,Thank you for leaving us a comment and asking us a question. We film the news report in the TV studio. It is very close to our classroom. Thanks for the idea of making our voices a little bit louder and next time we will make our voices a little bit louder just for you!!!Thanks again for leaving a comment and a question. We hope you enjoy our answer.Love From Isabella in Prep H.

  9. Smartsgal says:

    I’ve got this feeling that he ain’t dead, which iz y I ain’t exactly happy.

    Even if he’s really dead, is it really ‘yay’? I mean, what will be the response of the Muslim terrorists? Bombing?
    I seriously agree with state secretary Hillary Clinton – it ain’t over. Be alert!

  10. Sarsie says:

    He’s been dead for years, it’s election time!!!

  11. Soap says:

    Why then was he not buried in the Hudson River or Jersey Shore if we wanted a burial at sea. Sorry folks. the band is still playing.

  12. Soap says:

    I’ll believe it when I see his head in basket.
