Shit that Pissed me Off This Week – 1/25

Irish Court lets a man Convicted of Sexually Abusing his Daughter go Free Pending Appeal

This winner has admitted the abuse and has been sentenced to three years in prison.  However, he feels that the sentence is too harsh so he is appealing.  The judge has allowed him to go free on bail during the appeal.

Apparently, the mitigating factor is his health problems.

Uh…who gives a flying fuck about his health problems?  The guy sexually abused his daughter for ten years! He doesn’t deserve compassion because he has health problems.  He deserves to be miserable.

When you put a guy in here, you aren’t supposed to be worried about his health.

Nobody should feel sorry for this guy.  Nobody should be considering “balancing factors” in his sentence.  They should just lock him up and throw away the key.  He gave up the right to fight for quality of life issues when he decided that he needed to ruin the life of his daughter.

Except, apparently, he didn’t.  What the fuck is wrong with people?

Alphabetical Movie – Lady and the Tramp

Please note: I didn’t know the man so what I’m saying is complete speculation

I don’t think Walt Disney was a cat person.

What Lady and the Tramp teaches us, among other things, that dogs are capable of caring for human babies and cats will make every effort to destroy them.  While the film stops short of having the cats try to steal the babies’ breath, it sure doesn’t make cats look like loving creatures that could bring warmth and happiness to any home.

It isn’t really fair to judge Disney by one movie, though.  Looking at the “classic” Disney films (the ones made before his death), let’s see how cats make out, shall we?

Well..there’s 101 Dalmatians.  That movie has..a whole lot of dogs…and…um…one cat.  He’s a nice cat so that’s something, I suppose.  Of course he is involved in a strange military hierarchy where he is out ranked by a dog and a horse.  A horse?  Had these people met a cat before?  There is not a cat on this planet that would take orders from a horse.

From a cat perspective, the fact horses allow themselves to be saddled and ridden is the source of ridicule and contempt. At least it would be if cats could bring themselves to give a shit about horses.
