Something has to be done about this..

This being the pathetic joke called the "justice system" and the "youth criminal justice act".

On November 19th, just over a year ago, 17 year old Shane Rolston was beaten to death by five teenagers weilding an assortment of weapons. Four of the accused have been convicted, and not surprisngly, have gotten the kid-glove treatment from our so called "justice system". Three of them recieved two years less a day conditional sentences, one of them 4 years, which translated, means as little as 16 months. The fifth is expected to bargain his way to a light sentence as the others did.

Keep in mind that four of these thugs were not young offenders, but adults insofar as the law is concerned. To quote Shanes father Kelly Rolston, "human life in this country isn't worth a whole lot."

I just can't help it, I make women ANGRY!

Be it my wife for sitting down on the (sticky) rim of a toilet bowl in the middle of the night (I remind her that SHE is the one that leaves the seat DOWN, making it inconvenient for me, but to no avail) , one of my daughters being mad at me for scaring a boyfriend off (a dad's sworn duty), women are always pissed off at me for some reason or another.

What did I do this time you ask? Well, it appears that I make $.29 an hour more than they do, and for that I incur their wrath yet again. Well, I guess it's not me in general, but the cutting to the funding to the Status of Women dept that has their thongs all a-twist. Now that the funding has been cut the dark ages will soon follow..

Which gets me to thinking, my carpool cohorts have a woman on their team, who because of her educational credentials makes more than they do, in some cases substantially more. In one case she makes more than someone more or less an equal as far as qualifications go. Yet I don't hear them whining or gnashing their teeth about the disparity in pay, nor are they demanding they be brought up to par with her salary. Why is that?

A better question is, how is another $5,000,000.00 of your money per year going to keep women from being continually pissed off at me?

We all new that this was going to happen..


Talk about "slippery slope"...

I'm just concerned what that is dripping off his nose..
