Five Years in Prison For 10 Felonies… It’s Hardly Justice

A Roman Catholic priest from Wirral who admitted sexual activity with an underage boy has been jailed for five years by Liverpool Crown Court. Father Peter Hooper, 55, admitted 10 charges of sexual activity with the teenager, and inciting him to engage in such activity, at an earlier hearing. Bishop of Shrewsbury, Revd Mark Davies, said the Catholic community felt sorrow and horror at Hooper’s offences.

It’s ‘nice’ to know that British justice is as lame as American when it comes to the predatory beasts. Thankfully, real justice does exist in the universe.

Today’s Euro 2012 Matches

And who will win?  The Poles (home crowd advantage) and the Greeks (surprisingly not the home crowd advantage- but blind luck).

Sorry Syria, If You Were Jews We Would Help

But since you aren’t our Government really isn’t all that worried about your dying multitudes or your imploding country.  Hang in there though, be warm and filled…  Or become Jews.  We’d sure help then.  Of the inhabitants of the Middle East we can only really care about Jewish folk because no matter how their government acts we have to support them.  God told us to.

The United Nations said Saturday it was suspending its observer mission in Syria because of escalating violence in the country, signaling a major setback in a U.N.-brokered effort to end violence in the strife-torn nation.

“U.N. observers will not be conducting patrols and will stay in their locations until further notice,” Gen. Robert Mood, head of the observer mission, said in a statement.

Increasing violence “is limiting our ability to observe, verify, report as well as assist in local dialogue and stability projects,” Mood said.

The suspension will be reviewed “on a daily basis,” said the Norwegian general. “Operations will resume when we see the situation is fit for us to carry out our mandated activities.” The observers will remain in place and are not being pulled out of Syria, the U.N. said.

Too bad, right…  Too bad…

Once Again, I Stand Justified and Proven to be Right

Morning people, count yourselves lucky: New research shows you’re happier, and feel healthier, than your night-owl peers—not just in the morning, but in general. People tend naturally to rise earlier as they get older, which might explain why older people tend to be happier, researchers say.

Their study surveyed two groups, one made up of people ages 17 to 38 and another whose members were 59 to 79, LiveScience reports. Researchers found that most become morning people by age 60; by that time, just 7% of people are still night owls. In contrast, only 7% of young adults are early birds.

Overall, older folks reported being happier, a scientist says, and “‘morningness’ was associated with greater happiness emotions in both age groups.” It’s unclear why, but it may have to do with the fact that our “social clock”—typical work hours, for instance—is structured in a way that favors morning people.

So there, all you weird people who stay up late and sleep half the day (i.e., past 5 in the morning).  I’m way happier than you are… way happier!  I’m old, I’m up early, and I rock!

The Far-Right’s Incivility

There’s something wrong with the mental state, I’m serious here, of someone who acts the way this ‘reporter’ acted.  There’s something uncivil in the discourse on the far-right that should concern all right thinking Americans.  I don’t care what you think about any President’s policies, you have an obligation, if you’re a reporter, to behave yourself.

Obama was making remarks about a policy change that will see the U.S.  pursue a more lenient course when it comes to deporting young illegal immigrants who came to the U.S. as children.  “Why do you favor foreigners over American workers?” asked Daily Caller reporter Neil Munro.  Obama remained cool but appeared annoyed, holding up his hand and saying “Excuse me sir. Now is not the time for questions sir. Not while I’m speaking.”  After Obama finished his remarks, he addressed Monro, who again interrupted while the president was speaking.

The Daily Caller must hire people without sense.
