LATEST OUTRAGES

As I peruse the news, there is an inevitable something to get the adrenalin flowing and the blood pressure skyrocketing. LATEST OUTRAGES is just my way to share a few with you. And, feel free to pass them on. If enough of us get outraged, maybe … just maybe … something good will come of it.

OUTRAGE #1: A Virginia judge ruled that a 16-year-old boy with cancer must undergo conventional treatments against his will. He has suffered through previous treatments, and has decided to try alternative treatments in Mexico. He is supported by his parents in his desire. He fully understands the consequences if the treatments are not successful. Just as his past medical treatments were unsuccessful. Bad enough, but here is the real outrage. They have filed charges against the parents, and a court has awarded partial custody of their son to a state agency. What utter arrogance. Arrrrgh!

OUTRAGE #2: I read in the newspaper that the United States has sent a “secret” shipment of precision-guided bomb. The purchase was made last year, but the shipment was expedited because of the fight with Hezbollah. The article noted that the official spilling the beans requested anonymity because he was not authorized to speak to the press. The article even noted that disclosure “threatens to anger Arab governments and others because of the appearance that the United States is actively aiding the Israeli bombing campaign in a way that could be compared to Iran’s efforts to arm and re-supply Hezbollah.” There we go again!!! Government insiders giving out confidential information to an all too eager and disloyal press KNOWING that disclosure damages the U.S. Every time the newspapers use disloyal officials to aid and abet the enemy, American soldiers and innocent civilians are going to die. Arrrrgh!

OUTRAGE #3: President Bush gave German Chancellor Angela Merkel a little friendly shoulder massage before the start of the summit meeting. The Looney Ladies of the Left (nee liberal feminists) rose in their own version of outrage and charged the President with “inappropriately touching a woman without her invitation.” (I am initially confused. Not sure how one can “inappropriately touch a woman” WITH her invitation, but that is another matter). I would be more outraged, except this is just too silly. No wonder the left-wing women are no longer taken seriously. One cannot satirize them more than they do themselves. Remember, these are the same gals who gave Clinton a pass for getting a blowjob in the Oval Office from a young employee. Arrrrgh!
