Well I'm not sure if this is the worst, but it ranks in the Top 5.
I'm watching tv and one of these "buy now before it's too late" commercials come on. You know the type.
And what are they flogging this time?
Commemorative coins marking the 5th anniversary of 911. Complete with a second pressing silver relief of the twin towers that stands up proud with the gold coin as a background. "Guaranteed silver is from the heart of ground zero". All the while the star spangled banner is playing in the background as this professional voice drones on about limited availability and limit of 5 per order.
How many fathers, mothers, sisters, brothers, sons and daughters died that day. What about the families that carry a never healing wound within their soul because of that day. What about the loss of innocence that day took? Don't forget the war that is still being fought and soldiers that are being killed on a daily basis.
And now some asshole is going to make a shit load of money from it.
Fuck'n disgusting if you ask me.
