I watched the “Nodi Wylin About a Dead Girl” video today and it took nearly an hour to finish listening to it. It was a very painful 12 minutes 29 seconds. The content of the video was just THAT horrible. Almost two months ago when I first started writing about the Steubenville case, I detailed how shocked and upset I was at the tweets that I discovered. Reading those tweets was a walk in the park compared to actually hearing the filth roll off of another human being’s tongue about the events of that night. I cannot imagine if Nodi were my son or my brother, but I can feel compassion and sorrow for his family — unlike the lack of emotion he showed for the victim. I cannot imagine the humiliation and shame that his actions have brought upon his family – who are also innocent victims. They did … Continue reading →
For anyone who has lived in the Ohio Valley area, they know that high school football is a very important part of the culture of that area. High school football Friday nights are a source of entertainment for young and old. The local television stations even curtail regular programming to run the games live. To an outsider, it seems a bit over the top. I mean, it’s HIGH SCHOOL football for crying out loud. Not the NFL or college, but high school. Big Red football stadium looks like it could be a college stadium complete with press box and big lights. Football IS the Ohio Valley and the student players are treated like sports royalty. Two 16-year old football players from the Steubenville Big Red football program were charged with rape and kidnapping charges this morning in Jefferson County, Ohio and are being detained in the juvenile detention facility on … Continue reading →
This REALLY saddens me. Local news from Greece, NY is reporting that the four boys will NOT face criminal charges. WHY NOT? This was obviously not their first rodeo with bullying ans the bus monitor says that they have harassed her before. Others from the school have accused the boys of being bullies. My thoughts are: When is the proper time to say enough is enough and show these children that this behavior simply will not be tolerated? Should the system wait until they have left a wake of emotionally abused peers and elderly behind them? Or wait until one of their bullied victims commits suicide because of their abuse? Is being passive really the right thing to do in this situation? And where are the rest of the parents? Why aren’t they speaking out about their children? Father of one of the spawn, Robert Helm, reached out to Karen yesterday evening and apologized for his son’s … Continue reading →
When I was young, we rode the bus to and from school every morning and every afternoon. It always got a little wild when we had a substitute driver for our usual driver, Mr. Royster. He didn’t put up with a lot of BS on his bus and wasn’t afraid to stop the bus and not move until everyone had settled down. However, we weren’t so bad as to have this happen often, and for the most part everyone on the bus respected Mr. Royster, as well as all of our elders. Disrespecting teachers, aunts, uncles or our elders was simply NOT tolerated in our home and you only backtalked one time before you were taught a lesson. I’m not sure what has happened as a society that parents are not teaching their children basic manners and RESPECT. They are not parenting their children. This thought that you need to be your child’s BFF is not successful. People’s children just don’t care – and they have … Continue reading →

Judge William Adams has issued a statement about why he beat the crap out of his daughter with a belt, and says it’s not as bad as it looks. I beg to differ. That beating was nothing more than child abuse and it WAS a vicious beating, and while the daughter, Hillary says that her mother was forced or brainwashed into assisting him, I’m not buying it. She TOLD on her daughter. Any abused woman that I know (and I have known a few) will NOT TELL their husband that the children have behaved badly because they fear that the children will be beaten. Aunt Crazy never told Ike when the boys were bad because she KNEW that he would savagely beat them when he found out. I don’t believe that the former Mrs. Adams didn’t enjoy lashing her child. She came back into the room just to give it … Continue reading →
I cannot take credit for finding this lovely. Nope. PQ from the BH forum found her and I have experienced much laughter from viewing this ponytailed train wreck! These people give crazy a whole new meaning! I watched their videos and “Speaker Polley’s” singing is to die for (literally…dogs for miles around were dropping like flies LOL). I decided to take a peek at their website so that I can truly appreciate Speaker Polley’s message (she really calls herself Speaker Polley). This is what schizophrenia looks like. Speaker Polley fancies herself an artist, and I’m no art connoisseur nor art expert, but the object called “The Orb Of Enlightenment” seen here certainly looks like something that requires batteries. Lemons and oranges are fighting with the square people here. Who are these people? Gerald Polley is running for President – yes, of the United States even. That’s right. God told him … Continue reading →
