News That Makes Me Pause...

Then just irked me.
-Okay please need to get over the fact that Barack Obama won the election. There are several suits that have been filed arguing that Obama is not a natural born citizen (he was born in the US) and therefore can't be sworn in as president. Can I just say to all you folks out there trying to argue this point...."He won the election fair and square! Get over it and get on with your lives"!
-Here's a CNN headline for you, "Seductive mom gets son's juror to 'fess up ". Seems this mother went to extraordinary lengths to save her son from prison even though he was convicted of ordering the killing of a 19 year old boy. She gave herself an extreme makeover and hit on one of the jurors for a number of months until she was able to get the desired information from him. Too bad she didn't put that much energy into keeping her son out of gangs.
-And another CNN headline reads "Commentary: Pregnant woman asks for help, gets ticket". Apparently there was a major traffic jam on the road the pregnant woman took to get to the hospital. Her contractions were three minutes apart so they drove on the breakdown lane until they met up with a state trooper who they asked for help. Instead of helping them he humiliated the woman by questioning if she was really pregnant and them made her proved it. On top of that, he gave them a ticket and didn't help them get to the hospital. In order to keep my language clean let me just say this, What an Idiot!
And my last bit of disturbing news for the day...
-"Craigslist baby sitter used tot in porn film". I am not even going to go into the story. The headline is disturbing enough.
Sometimes I have to wonder...what is wrong with us?!

This should be titled "Things that make me mad" The state trooer is a super dooper moron. As for the last one I say "Castrate the mongrels"

I was really upset by these particular stories. As for the last one, I am afraid castration might be too good for him.

"What is wrong with people?" is a question I ask several times per day.
