It's Just the Coffee Talking - commenting on the news is what I ended up doing in this post I guess

Good Morning Coffee Friends...

This morning should be good because Mr. Coffee is working and no one else is here so the house is quiet - but everything is getting on my nerves so I'm just in a grumpy mood.

SHOUT OUT to an online friend circa 2005 or 2006 maybe (?) who became a real life friend about 10 years ago.  She surprised me with a coffee mug this week.  I went to check the mail and there was a box for me; a delivery I wasn't expecting as I hadn't ordered anything.

I opened the box while standing at the mailbox and I got the biggest grin on my face.  I smiled and then my smile turned into a laughter.  A happy laughter.  It was just so sweet and so unexpected... and really, what I needed that day for many different reasons.

I was reading the news this morning and had a few random thoughts;  one is that apparently Alec Baldwin is going to be charged with involuntary manslaughter.  Now, I have to admit that my opinion of this man changed after he started to spout off his ugly and hate-filled personality.  I liked him just fine as an actor but in the past 3 years he's pretty much declared people like me (a conservative in politics, and a Catholic Christian) to be groups of people he would like to see dead.  So my opinion on his legal charges obviously will have NOTHING to do with my personal views on the man....

But as an actor on a set, handed a prop for a movie.... I think it would be a persons right to assume the gun would be unloaded with real ammo because it's a prop.  I fail to see that he is guilty of anything because the person who should be charged is whomever is in charge of the props.  The Prop-Person who got the gun, loaded the gun with ammo and handed a loaded gun to an unsuspecting actor. 

I don't like Alec Baldwin but I don't see how he could be found guilty when the guilty party is the Prop crew.  They should get charged with involuntary manslaughter... not Mr. Baldwin.

Another opinion I had on the news this morning was the announcement no more proxy voting will be allowed in Congress; they need to actually SHOW UP TO WORK.  Good!  I support this 100%.  The proxy-voting was allowed during the health crisis of the Covid pandemic - which is no more.  But more importantly, many of Congress were using it simply as a way to be lazy and attend other functions and events they found more entertaining - having nothing to do with health concerns.  Our politicians need to get back to work and actually show up and do their jobs.

Another story involves the death of a little boy at the hands of his Mother and her boyfriend -news link- Anthony

Court documents allege he was held up by his feet and dropped on his head repeatedly, punished with wrestling moves, forced to fight other children in the house, thrown into furniture, beaten in the face with a ping-pong paddle, slammed to the floor and given rug burn.

You guys - that paragraph above is just a FEW of the things this poor little boy went through.  Just the tip of the iceberg.

Both parents deserve death.  Nothing less.  An eye for an eye. (Maybe they should have to go through every single torture and punishment they dolled out on this poor little boy... yes, I think they should.) 

You mess with babies and children, or the elderly... and the mama lion in me comes out.  You protect the innocent, the frail and those in need of help

Well, I should have known this post would take a turn to the 'grumpiness' as I warned you, that's just the mood I'm in today!

Meh, come back tomorrow.  Today it's just the coffee talking again anyway... ha ha.

More reading I'm not commenting on....

A months-long Townhall investigation reveals disturbing new details about the affluent LGBTQ-activist couple accused of sodomizing their young adopted sons—now ages 9 and 11—and distributing "homemade" child pornography of the sexual abuse. Half a year after the shocking story made national news, Townhall is the only outlet following up on the criminal case in Georgia that has since seen zero headlines written about it. We've found that it's far, far worse than what was first reported.

Not only did the married men allegedly rape the two boys who were adopted through a Christian special-needs adoption agency, they were pimping out their children to nearby pedophiles in Atlanta-area suburbs, Townhall's follow-up investigation discovered.

Recorded jailhouse calls, a trove of never-before-seen court documents, and testimony from a family member who spoke exclusively with Townhall uncover the extent of the physical and emotional trauma the two elementary school-aged brothers endured as well as the red flags that the state overlooked during the same-sex couple's "faster than expected" adoption process.
