Some days are not newsworthy. At such times, the MSM recycles whatever sold yesterday’s papers, hoping someone has just emerged from cryogenic freeze and needs to catch up.
Today, however, many things have emerged: dog decapitations in Michigan; A British spy being tortured and murdered; a celebrity’s ex-wife being kidnapped; a teacher arrested for repeated raping of a minor. These are indications of a pandemic of sorts, having to do with a lack of morals, an emptiness of values. People are getting sicker in their minds these days. All this and I’m not through with the CNN report yet!
But the best story of the day is the Department of Homeboy Scrutiny official who gets caught by a dupe as he tries to initiate inappropriate liaisons with a “14-year-old” through the internet. Not only is this quinquagenarian socially sick, he’s terminally stupid. Doesn’t he know the adage: “On the Internet, no one knows you’re a dog?” Perhaps he just got his new computer last Christmas, and is just discovering the liberty of being online. Now, everyone knows he’s a dog.
This is another inverse highlight of Republican leadership, as DHS is our administration’s attempt at the conservative mainstay of smaller government. I would bet that any senior officials of said agency were on the list of the RNC and/or a Bush Pioneer, et al. When is America going to say “enough is enough?” I’ve surely had my fill long ago.
But stupidity, immorality, and mental depredations abound in our society. There are no check-and-balances for behavior anymore. The power of Clergy is faded, what with the Catholic Church and its own pedophile problems, who would listen? People cannot seem to police themselves, and role models are hard to find: Mike Tyson, anyone? Kobe Bryant? I’ve never understood how people can attempt such things and hope to get away with them. We all have a voice within us telling us an act is wrong, and too many learn to ignore it.
As for the rest of humanity, we feast upon the moral famine around us. That is what sells “News.” But to begin to believe such behavior is okay is folly. Pity the fools…
