I Was Just Thinking....



What the hell is wrong with this world?


My morning paper is filled with tawdry and tragic tales of sex crimes. Are people really that stupid? Lets talk first about legendary Penn State Football Coach Joe Paterno. While the facts on this case seem solid, the details are wherein the devil lies. Literally. What a horrid mess of details. Coach Paterno's former assistant, Jerry Sandusky has been charged with 8 counts of sexual molestation with boys in 15 years.


In 2002, Mike Queary, came to Paterno to report seeing Sandusky in the showers with a 10 year old boy. At that time Patreno took the matter to athletic director Tim Curley and vice president Gary Schultz. All three of them are jobless today and dishonestly discharged from their respective careers. At 84, this legendary role model disgraced his name by taking a play directly from the Catholic church's play book; shut up and make it go away. Maybe Bernard Law and Joe Paterno can now become Penn pals, complete pun intended.


Then there's Cain. Herman Cain has taken a play directly out of the Bill Clinton playbook and is playing the adamant denial game. Now this is a little something I know about. Liars always believe their own lies. After a while they are so convinced of their innocence that they will go to great lengths to convince you and themselves of it. But it never pans out and karma is a bitch who will never let you forget. One woman interviewed in the Boston Herald said, "Herman Cain is a sociopath. You can catch them doing something on video and they'll deny they were even on the planet." My point exactly. And this guy want to run for President? These are not adulterous charges, these are titilating and scandalous charges by multiple women.


Then there's this doosey: A woman in Attleboro, MA stands accused of forcing her 10 year-old daughter, crying, to stand naked in front of her computer web cam so a "photographer" could measure her body type for a bikini shoot. Seems this 41 year-old mother was shopping around for a modeling gig for herself on the internet when she received a Facebook message from a man claiming to be from a Florida photography firm. She then sent pictures of her naked breasts to him and told him about her 10 year-old daughter.


"John" then told her he had a client who wanted to do a bikini shoot with a mother and daughter. The planned a Skype conversation with "John", who explained that his camera was broken, which is why the mother and daughter couldn't see him. The mother then had her crying daughter strip naked and pose in front of the camera for about 15 minutes. "John" was arrested in Iowa after the mother's sister tipped off police. She told authorities that "John" had offered the mother $20,000.00 for her and her daughter to come to Florida for the shoot.


I'll say it again, are people really that stupid? What the hell is wrong with this world? Sex and scandal and stupidity.


That's a daily trifecta that has no winners.

Did Paterno REALLY do anything wrong ?

I mean, he REPORTED what he was told.....

I think they just want him out because he's 137 years old.

Yeah Paterno did something wrong...he knew a child was raped by his subordinate coach, made a statement to the people who make millions off of him and his god damned football program and he did not go to an outside authority when he saw that his gig was in jeopardy.

Did the 13 year old who molested me when I was 7 do anything wrong..hell he was only 13. But that was 50 years ago and really doesn't mean a god damn thing does it? Other than I do not trust hardly anyone at anytime and I DO always prefer my own company when I can have it.

Paterno ABSOLUTELY did something wrong. Sure he reported what he was told, but not to the authorities. Only to his superiors. An error of inaction is still an error. And this one was huge as the guy continued to rape kids after this incident.

AND this is a child getting raped in his team's locker room. Hell, he should have called a freaking hit squad to take the guy out.

AND he allowed this vile piece of crap to continue to come to games and his office on-campus. Just as long as he didn't bring any kids with him. See no evil...

Yeah...he did wrong. Big time.

I started a dead pool to see which, from the top to bottom, is the first to "off" themselves.

The REAL question you have to ask yourself is why do we keep rabidly reading this stuff?

if we didnt care so much, they wouldnt report it....

Paterno is a piece of shit. I can see, sure - going to his superiors and telling them, expecting that they would go to the authorities. What he did wrong was he didn't follow up on it - he didn't ask what they'd done, he didn't become angry when he found out nothing had happened and he should've gone to the police himself, even if only anonymously.
I hadn't heard of the idiot wanna-be mom and 10 year old daughter. WTF.
It's days like this I fucking hate people.

Another item left of the list was the recent articles about "Occupy Wall Street Sexual Assaults". It's a shame and very sad that people will take any opportunity to prey on unsuspecting persons.

In fact there was just an article in the Houston Chronicle today about a teenage girl who committed suicide because when she went to a trusted teacher, they didn't really believer her and she had no justice. I don't imagine that the teacher in this incident will be fired. See 2 links below.

Paterno is covered! The Catholic Pope in Rome is hiring...he is as sound as a pound.

I can't wait for Cain's wife to have her lovers come out of the woodworks. I have the popcorn going for that....

And your last story is why I teach a class on how to avoid internet scams...just $495 to find out how...

the mother and daughter thing is just unbelievable - that poor poor girl, how can a parent be so so stupid - I thought all parents had the "I'll kill to protect my kid attitude"

I know what you mean. When I had the news on this morning, I felt more like I was watching a sleazy soap opera.

Paterno and Queary are both pieces of shit for not going to the police. We are talking about KIDS being RAPED here. There's just no excuse not to stop it!

Cain is a scumbag. There's NO WAY that ALL those women are lying. That's ridiculous. Like you said, a liar believes his own lies. I know THAT just as well as you do. Disgusting, isn't it?

And that woman who forced her daughter to pose naked on the webcam is a COMPLETE MORON. Come on! How does a mom fall for a see-through scam like that?!

I feel so dirty now.
