yes a fucking psychopath

I can't believe this article is painting Robert Bales, the soldier that slaughtered 16 afghan villagers including 9 children as anything but a horrible psycho murderer.

“He is not some psychopath. He’s an outstanding soldier who has given a lot for this country.”



Really...

Why is anyone "trying" to humanize and understand him is beyond my understanding. There is no way that any excuses about his pathetic problems of losing a job and a house can compare to the families whose children he murdered and many of whom he set on fire. Kill yourself if your life is so bad buddy. you don't have to kill a bunch of innocent women and children. Any public rationalization makes us sound even more disturbingly supportive of his action.

I say screw the trial and drama, screw the punishment in some military court. if I was the afghan gov't I would demand he stand trial in Afghanistan and then just set him free in the streets and see what happens. If we don't treat him as the disgusting cold blooded murderer he is, it is only going to invite more terror attacks. To be honest I wouldn't even blame them. Will he have to undergo an international war crimes trial?

Can you imagine if it was the other way around and some afghani man in the US shot up and burned a bunch of women and children here. And people can cry 911 all they want but it's not the same in any way. This is such a direct and cold blooded murder. He had to look those children in the face.

These are all quotes from the article

While Bales, 38, sat in an isolated cell at Fort Leavenworth, Kan.’s military prison Saturday, classmates and neighbors from suburban Cincinnati, Ohio, remembered him as a “happy-go-lucky” high school football player who took care of a special-needs child and watched out for troublemakers in the neighborhood.



His former platoon leader said Saturday Bales was a model soldier inspired by 9/11 to serve, who saved lives in firefights on his second of three Iraq deployments.



“He’s one of the best guys I ever worked with,” said Army Capt. Chris Alexander, who led Bales on a 15-month deployment in Iraq.



“It’s our Bobby. He was the local hero,” said Michael Blevins, who grew up down the street from him in Norwood, Ohio. The youngest of five boys respected older residents, admonished troublemakers and loved children, even helping another boy in the area who had special needs.

Weird foggy patches on the river

There are all these crazy fog patches on the lake and river. The weather is so strange right now. I was running around with no shirt on.

Looking crazy in my new orange pants

I tried on all of my neon color stuff at once and then (e:terry) snapped the pic while I was looking up so it looks like my eyes are rolling back in my head.

Strangely, I bought three pairs of pants at H&M, all the same size, style, everything and only 1 pair fits. So much for consistency.

minimum wage in nys

The range of minimum wage from 1960-now is pretty crazy. It seems so hard to imagine it being $3 in the 90s.

I am so tired

I am trying to wrap up this massive work project in the last few days so that i don't have to think about it during St. Patricks day weekend. I cannot wait for it to be freakin over. I have already worked 12-15 hours everyday this week. With 40 hours right now. Tomorrow hasn't even started yet. It better just go smooth and then I am going to take off.

I really hope in april we get a new position and I can finally have an assistant/partner in crime. I would love so much to have someone to work with directly so that I am not responsible for so much stuff alone. Plus its just more interesting to work with other people and have someone to talk to about the projects we would be working on together.

God I look strung out from programming.

Liberte vs chobani yogurt

The liberate is 1000% tastier but check out the fat on that. 0% fat vs almost half the daily allowance of saturated fat. The chobani is also not very many calories in general. My puffed rice cereal is the same way. Its like 50 calories a bowl. I think I need to up the significance of my breakfast.

Time for a new grill

The grill had a run in with the wind storm last week that might have been life threating. I got it to start up again buy I think it might be time to just start over. I feel bad because it cooked so many good meals.
