The News Makes Me Angry Sometimes..Some Examples...

Long time no post..I know...chalk it up to nothing but laziness and a lack of anything to say. Amazing, right. At the moment, Mags is sick. She is battling a horrible cold and is down and out. Thankfully, Nurse Connor is on the job.

So I enjoy the news. Mostly. I like to know what is going on in the state, country and around the world. However, lately I'm seeing alot of stuff that is well, pissing me off. I enjoy the better side of news, as we all do, but there are things that make me say "what the f*ck". Here are some examples...

~In India recently a 12 year old girl died from massive bleeding while giving birth. Yes. Giving birth. Her 44 yr old husband was said to be somewhat distraught, but he did have a nice little 13 year old at home doing his laundry and plucking a chicken for dinner. 12. say that out loud. 12. years. old. Married to a 44 year old man. Earlier in the week, in elsewhere in India, a 42 year old man beat his 10 year-old wife almost to death. 10...A lot of poor families sell their kids into marriage because the pervs that 'buy' them promise to provide a good home and not to have sex with them until they are of age.
Both of these guys need to be kicked in the sac with such extreme force that professional boxers will watch and grimace. Maybe we should have professional boxers..or maybe some UFC dudes
( or dudettes) do it.
Am I wrong here? And please, I don't want to hear any of that "but it's their culture" bullshit. A 44 year old man has no right being married to, never mind having sex with, a 12 year old girl.
I could go on and on, but man, what else can you say??

~Four young dudes from Hofstra were falsely accused of forcible tying a girl up and raping her. The girl later recanted and said the sex was consensual. She said she made up the story because she didn't want people to think she was...well.. a slut. Well, we now we know that, not only are you a slut, you're also a liar. Super. The good news is the kids were aquitted of said crime. After having their mugs splashed across the newswires with the word 'rapist' attatched to them.

~A guy from right here in New Jersey has been sentenced to 4 1/2 years in prison after being convicted of his...are you ready...? 16th drunk-driving conviction. Yes. 16. There were 16 seperate times when this idiot was nailed behind the wheel while he was drunk. 16 seperate time he could have killed an innocent person or persons. The good state of New Jersey felt that after 16 DWI offenses, maybe this guy may or may not have a problem and maybe they should do something. He has had his license revoked for 39 years. His license has been suspended 78 times in the 24 or so years he has been driving. That's about every three months.

Sorry for the bummer entry...I'll work on something funny for tomorrow.
