Where to start this week?
Maybe I can start with the most disturbing story since Jerry Sandusky. WTF? Can we all agree that no one should abuse children? What thought process leads someone to think taking pictures of children with blindfolds, tape and/or mouths full of semen, which they thought was “magic candy” is appropriate? Apparently LA educator Mark Berdt thought that was just fine. I saw an official from the area say this on CNN, “They just thought they were being blindfolded and gagged as a game.” There is so much wrong with that statement that I am not sure where to begin. So, I’ll end my anti-child abuse rant there.
How about Mitt Romney’s compassionate nature? Recently he told a reporter, “I don’t care about the poor, there’s a safety net for that. If it’s broken, I’ll fix it.” I am sure the nation’s poor — and some estimates have that number as being as high as 42 million Americans — will be greatly relieved to hear that.
Why do we still care what Donald Trump thinks about anything? Rumor has it, he will endorse Newt Gingrich. Why do we care? Oh, right, we’re stupid.
(FYI, if you are not familiar with that quote it from The Wizard of Oz, a movie about which I have written before. Side note: has anyone heard the story of the suicide on the set that is supposed to be in the film? Used to scare the crap out of me. And I was in college when said scaring took place. Of course I am afraid of velociraptors, so clearly something is not right with me.)
