CFN – Human nature is a funny thing. People can say one thing publicly, but what they do is many times very different than what they say.
While many have commented their indignation and outrage over the Cornwall Memes facebook page, it now has more likes in one month the City of Cornwall’s actual Facebook page.
It’s author still refuses to step out into the public light. Most interesting is that if you click on who likes the page it’s mostly the 18-24 crowd.
In fact some have suggested that I myself was behind this; but am not in anyway affiliated or connected to the page. I do not know the authors identity. I simply messaged them through the page.
The author messaged a statement for this story.
It’s hard to believe the support the page has gotten in the past month, I’m truly floored to the fact that it has surpassed in likes of the actual Cornwall Facebook page, it is much more beyond anything I could of ever expected it to become.
However, I can’t take all the credit, credit is due to my associates and every single individual who likes the Cornwall Memes Page. I’ve always liked making people laugh, and I’ve always making people happy, I’m very happy that we can all share a laugh as a community.
While totally childish and high school for the most part the biggest question is why do so many people; especially young people feel strongly enough to like this page? It is just kicking at authority or do our young people really have that much animosity to the city they have grown up in?
Could that be why so many of our youngest and brightest leave and the city’s population stagnates at under 50,000?
With nearly 5 people employed in the Economic Development department, and with one of the largest budgets who do very little to develop our economy; especially for young people, maybe it’s time for voters to take a look at not only who we vote; but how those elected run our city?
While mostly funny Cornwall Memes is surely a Canary in a Coal Mine for how this city is run. Now the question is if some of those young people want to try and help change our city for the better so one day they themselves will have memes about how awesome Cornwall is?
I asked the author for “their” fave meme and they said.
I was honestly disgusted the way that I heard they treated teens at the health care clinic, as if they we’re dirt for being pregnant, I had hoped this meme would of raised more awareness to that fact.
Teen pregnancy should in no way be dealt in the manner of which they had dealt it. Even though this meme never became popular, it has always been my favorite because of that.
