Why Is It All Bad?

Maybe I should just stop read­ing, or lis­ten­ing to, the news. I heard about most of this stuff on NPR and saw the sto­ries on CNN as well.

So now the Catholic Bish­ops are propos­ing (gasp) fir­ing priests who are proven pedophiles! But only if they’re known to have molest­ed more than one child. Yep, they all get one free rape. Every sta­tis­tic I have EVER seen on pedophiles shows that they do molest more than one child if they have access to them, and there is no way to “cure” them. None. They have VERY high recidi­vism. I don’t even believe in one free bite for dogs before putting them down. If some­body had shot the bas­tard who molest­ed me as a child after the first time he was known to have raped a child, I and a whole lot of oth­er kids would not have been hurt by him. And yes, I blame every sin­gle adult who knew what he was and did­n’t do some­thing about it. So I don’t just think they need to defrock the pedophile priests, I think they should all be put to death along with every oth­er child moles­ter on this or any oth­er planet.

How does every­body, includ­ing the pool ser­vice guy, fail to notice that a miss­ing sev­en-year-old’s body was in the pool for two days? Just how big was this pool, any­way? And how wild was the par­ty dur­ing which the kid disappeared?

I could­n’t find a work­ing link for this sto­ry, but a 10-year-old girl died this week­end in Lawrenceville after she dove into an above-ground pool and broke her neck, then drowned. There were no adults out­side when she was swim­ming. Why was a ten-year-old swim­ming unat­tend­ed? Heck, ADULTS aren’t sup­posed to swim unat­tend­ed accord­ing to every set of safe­ty rules I’ve ever seen.

I have this hor­ri­ble feel­ing that will not go away that the grand­moth­er, or great-aunt, or god­moth­er, or what­ev­er you want to call that crim­i­nal that had this child in her hands, sold her to someone.

Sev­er­al air­lines have jerked a fair num­ber of peo­ple off planes since 9/11 for the offense of being brown-skinned. And of course, there’s a law­suit against the air­lines about it now. The air­lines claim all the inci­dents were due to “legit­i­mate secu­ri­ty con­cerns” but in almost every case, they turned around and put the pas­sen­gers on oth­er flights imme­di­ate­ly with­out any kind of secu­ri­ty check­ing or clear­ance. So real­ly, the prob­lem was just that they looked like they MIGHT be from the mid­dle east.

Since when is get­ting only 23% of the ques­tions on a test right a pass­ing grade? And peo­ple won­der why I home­school my daugh­ter? As a mat­ter of fact, why is it that in quite a few states, home­school­ers have to have their kids test­ed every year or so? If their kids don’t per­form to a cer­tain stan­dard, they aren’t allowed to home­school them any­more. So why don’t schools have to do the same thing? If a major­i­ty of the stu­dents in their care don’t per­form at or above a cer­tain lev­el every year, they should be closed down.
