Sandusky update on Penn State University Scandal




     Updates on the Sandusky Scandal have come to light... Not only did others fail to report the sexual offenses but  they forged agreements to conceal these attacks for 14years. Investigator Freeh's 267 page report  claims "there are more red flags then you can count".  Further proceedings and prosecutions are to begin in late July for Tim Curly former athlete Director, and Ex-Vice President Gary Shultz.
     In my personal opinion they can all go to jail...Its sad to know people would go to such lengths to conceal the truth of such hanis crimes, and for what?  Who were they saving?  "A name or reputation"...Because it sure wasnt those victims. Whats you thoughts?

Are Americans being hypocritical when it comes to Ralph Laurens Olympic Uniforms ?


     Just weeks before the 2012 summer Olympics, Designer Ralph Lauren released his line of Uniforms for team USA. Many are outraged...Senate minority leader Harry Reid says "burn the Olympic Uniforms made in China"   The USA Olympics team consists of 530 athletes. Men's uniforms cost $1900 and $1600 for females, in all totaling to a whopping profit of $940,267.
     The United States is known for freedom and diversity...Americans by clothing and merchandise all the time yet never question where it was made or how. That's what makes us American! We are a country that buys, sells and trades  with many around the globe. Think about the last time you really seen something that didn't say made in Taiwan or China? I think its petty to think a uniform is what defines our athlete.

Tragedy In Oyster Bay Long Island leaving 3 children dead

    
      A 34ft vessel holding 27 people (10 children and 17 adults) capsized  July 4th In Oyster Bay Long Island, taking the lives of three children (David Aureliano 12,Victoria Gaines 7, and  Harlie Treanor 11). According to National Weather Service winds never exceeded over 10-15mph yet a so called wave is what capsized the vessel? There is no doubt the boat was over loaded, other boating sites suggests the boat should only have held up to 15 passengers. All together it is a horrific tragedy... T o hear the families Attorney so worried and defending statements about life jackets, they forgot the key factor... The boat was over crowded. Whether wave or wake what do you think happens when you rock a boat? Logically being over its weight limit it would tip. I don't understand where these parents didn't think this was a safety issue. As sad as this sounds In my opinion they should be charged with reckless endangerment of minors. No one wants to loose a family member, or even put away another one for their carelessness but... what about the law? what about those children? I'm sure their parents are going through there own personal hell but these situations are how new laws are made. By people being made examples of tragedies like this can be avoided.

The Hottest summer on Record already, is Climate change still a Hoax ?



Climate change has been at the crux of major global meetings and whether we look at the G20 summits of last few years or the initiatives of the United Nations, one fact is certain that in recent times taking into account the record temperatures all across the globe, climate change is only getting worse.

In recent statistics (July 9th 2012) published by several global news agencies it has been stated that the United States have had warmer than average temperatures for the June 2011 threw June 2012 period. The only exception to this was Washington state. News about the heat wave that killed more than 90 people are still storming in and out of control wild fires are becoming more than a rarity.  Marine ecologists from several universities and research centers are heading to the Australian coral reefs and various other oceanic structures to study the effect of climate change and a recent study has mentioned that the growth of coral reefs have already halted all across the major oceans of the world.

Most people are still living in denial and also question if at all climate change is for real or just a hoax like so many others that have graced the US and the world in the past. The reality is that if we look beyond what the Mayans, the likes of Nostradamus and  what the Bible says then things would be easier to consider and understand. Climate change is not a doomsday prediction. No one bringing attention to climate change is insisting on the world coming to an abrupt end  but an era that would usher in unforeseen consequences. Even Al Gore who is a name synonymous with climate change only tried to push a thought that humanity should make an effort to curb carbon emissions, to cut down on green house gases and steps must be taken to restore natural greenery's, forests and natural habitats. A shift in the worlds ecology would inevitably lead to climate change and it has already begun to happen.

Most people living in denial believe that climate change is nothing but a change in the weather and that record temperatures of a heat wave are just a part of nature’s perennial cycles. If such was reality, Goldman Sachs would not have projected corn yields to be 7.5% lower than the USDA’s projections. The Global food crisis has already started, heat waves are killing people, forest fires and an uncomfortable environment are becoming  omnipresent.

Perhaps, people would believe climate change is occurring once a major catastrophe hits the shores of several countries but then it will be to late.

Casey Anthony the worlds most hated mom:Reaping benefits from boyfriends book "Presumed Guilty"



    Casey Anthony who was acquitted of murdering her daughter a year ago is in the news yet again. We all know the story of the woman who went out clubbing while her daughter was missing. The story of a mother who when her 2 year old child went missing on June 6th doesn't report it until June 16th, and tells the police her daughter had been missing for a month.
     After the long nightmare of the trial was said and done... You would think this so called grieving mother would want to just disappear into the darkest hole there is on earth. Not Casey Anthony, she posts blogs talking about her hair... her computer... how people are talking about her,  yet not once does she mention her daughter Caylee who was murdered by an unknown suspect. How about the fact that she is also in the public eyes for her relationship with her lawyer Jose Baez. To bad Casey forgot to mention in her blog her boyfriend/ Lawyer wrote a book  "Presumed Guilty" based on the whole trial that shes now reaping financial benefits from.
     In my opinion she is guilty unfortunately the system has its flaws and people like her and OJ Simpson go free. The fact that people would actually buy the book disgusts me. Whats your take on her new blogging carrer?

Is America going down the Drain



I think we are getting closer and closer to going down the drain but I still have hope. I still have hope because I'm an American and maybe because I hate giving up, maybe because I know how our country started and where our country has come from.

With that said you cannot deny the fact we are doing nothing to help our country get out of this hole we dug our selves into. Politicians are more concerned about protecting the people who give them money and playing to there emotions instead of doing whats right for the country. John Huntsman once a Republican contender for President will not attend the Republican Convention because he believes his party is to partisan. I did not agree with everything Huntsman said but I believe he was a pretty good candidate because he spoke his mind and did not play to the radicals in his party. Guess what he lost the nomination due to the fact he could not raise enough money.

 It was just reported that Mitt Romney raised 106 million dollars in the month of June alone. President Obama only raised 71 million and it's being reported as bad sign for the President. It's hard to believe that raising 71 million dollars in one month is bad news, but that's what our country has come to. That's what American politics has turned into a popularity contest to see who can get the support from the most ignorant divisive people in your party. If you want to run for any political office just a word of advice don't be bi partisan , don't have real ideas that you are willing to discuss with the other side and whatever you do don't ever tell people how you really feel.

Jerry Sandusky's oblivious wife...or is she?



      Lets lay down some facts
FACT:  Jerry Sandusky the former assistant coach of Penn State University was found guilty on 45 of the 48 counts of child sexual abuse.
FACT: Two Penn State University Administrators have stepped aside and now have been charged with failure to notify authorities as well.
FACT: Dotty Sandusky wife of  Convicted sexual predator, adopted 6 children (5 male, 1 female) with Jerry Sandusky, In which one of the children (Matt) accuses Sandusky of sexual abuse.
FACT: Jerry Sandusky apparently only enjoyed  playing with the boys in the basement.
    
In my personal opinion if it walks like a duck quacks like a duck...Its got to be a duck. If I was Dotty Sandusky I would not be standing by my husband, I would be asking for a divorce. The fact that her own son is accusing her husband and she still stands by his side tells you what kind of a woman/Mother she is. For years woman have been taught your children come first, where are her morals? we've all heard the statement stand by your man but this is taking it to the next level. For Dotty to sit through out the entire trial and hear testimony not of one but multiple victims... wouldn't it make you think twice about what Kind of man your married to, or what potentially may have happened in her own home. In my opinion for her to say she didn't know what was going on is just preposterous. She is just as bad as he is and should be charged right along with him. What's your thoughts
