World War II veteran reacts
after teens burglarize, trash
Houston home

KHOU Houston TX, by Sher-Min Chow & Jeff McShan*

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 1/22/2013 11:42:20 AM

HOUSTON -- Ninty-three-year-old Elbert Wood came home from a doctor’s appointment Monday morning to find his home burglarized and vandalized with spray paint. The great-grandfather still managed to have a sense of humor about the crooks. “They redecorated for me.” Wood built his northwest Houston home and has lived in it for 55 years. He pointed to the walls, windows, paintings, carpets and other personal belongings, now all tagged with graffiti. At his age, he’s heard and seen a lot. “I never heard of anything like this before.” He was wounded twice in World War II.

It wasn´t really their fault. They were raised under the liberal democrat, permissive society. They are victims of the capitalist system, which robs them of their self-esteem. Hollywood has done all it can do by producing mindless fare. The cyber world is a free-for-all, where there are no consequences for wrongdoing. The education system has dumbed them down so that personal responsibility and right vs wrong is all relative.

Hunt them down and castrate them. They definitely do not need to procreate (if it´s not too late already)...

Anybody picking on the elderly just makes my blood boil. Our family is on a death watch right now for one of my elderly uncles who served in WWII. He has seen everything & nothing phases him. He would probably forgive these young wastes of space, too. I admire people who can have that attitude. I agree the punishment should fit the crime - make these young fools spend some time helping in a care home. They might learn empathy. Someday they will be old & feeble, too.

perhaps if and when they are caught they will be simply assigned to clean up their mess before they go to trial. sure seems as tho it might be a novel concept.

Read the article again. They did steal things. They cried and wanted to apologize.
Why because they were caught ?

Once again, no mention of what the parents had to say. I am still with putting the parents in jail alongside the juvies.

Ukraine mobilizes troops after
Russia´s ´declaration of war´
CNN, by Marie-Louise Gumuchian*    Original Article
Posted By: JoniTx- 3/2/2014 10:22:33 PM     Post Reply
Kiev, Ukraine- As Ukraine´s new leaders accused Russia of declaring war, Russia´s Prime Minister warned Sunday that blood could be spilled amid growing instability in the neighboring nation. Kiev mobilized troops and called up military reservists in a rapidly escalating crisis that has raised fears of a conflict. And world leaders pushed for a diplomatic solution. In a post on his official Facebook page, Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev called the recent ouster of Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovych a "seizure of power." "Such a state of order will be extremely unstable," Medvedev said. "It will end with the new revolution.

If you’ve ever wondered how the United States got in to its current mess of a stagnant economy and out-of-control government, I have a suggestion. Take a good look at what a handful of voters in one of America’s finer suburbs did to themselves and the rest of their community, and realize that it is a microcosm for what’s happening all across the country. The city in question is Seatac, a small suburb in the state of Washington (it’s name is derived from the larger neighboring cities of Seattle and Tacoma).

Nearly a generation ago, MSNBC´s Chris Matthews coined a description of our two political parties that may turn out to be his most enduring contribution to American punditry. Republicans, Matthews wrote, were the "Daddy Party," all about military security and self-reliance; Democrats were the "Mommy Party," all about health, education and nurturing. At the time, in 1991, Democrats weren´t sure they considered that much of a compliment. Since then, a long line of Democratic presidential candidates — including one who is an actual mommy, Hillary Rodham Clinton — have taken pains to prove they could be as tough and decisive

House Oversight Committee Chair Darrell Issa (R-CA) appeared on Fox News Sunday this morning with some “late breaking news”: “[Lois Lerner´s] attorney indicates that she now will testify,” Issa said, referring to the chief witness in his investigation of the IRS’ alleged targeting of conservative groups. Lerner, who was the Director of the IRS Exempt Organizations division during the supposed targeting, has thus far invoked the Fifth Amendment in front of Issa’s committee. “We believe the evidence we’ve gathered causes her, in her best interest, to be someone who should testify,” Issa said. Host Chris Wallace even double-checked that Lerner was,

PEREVALNE, Ukraine— Just inside the main gate to the military base, four young Ukrainian soldiers stood in the middle of the road, as if somehow they alone could stop what was on the other side. They were hardly an intimidating group. They were young and unarmed and didn´t look like they had ever been anywhere near combat. One, the soldier whose eyes kept blinking nervously, didn´t look old enough to shave. Outside the gate, though, things were different. There were a half-dozen soldiers in unmarked green uniforms, all wearing helmets and body armor, and all carrying automatic weapons. Every 50

"The Tonight Show" host Jimmy Fallon walked into Lake Michigan Sunday morning in the promised suit and tie, turned toward the beach, then fall back into the water, going completely under. Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel ran in, then sort of laid down on his back in the slushy, 32-degree water about 10 feet from the edge of the sand on North Avenue Beach. Speaking to the crowd just before going in, Fallon didn´t exactly radiate bravado. "If you hear a scream like a little girl´s, just know that Jimmy Fallon is swimming in Lake Michigan," he said.

WASHINGTON — President Obama has warned Russia that “there will be costs” for a military intervention in Ukraine. But the United States has few palatable options for imposing such costs, and recent history has shown that when it considers its interests at stake, Russia has been willing to pay the price. Even before President Vladimir V. Putin on Saturday publicly declared his intent to send Russian troops into the Ukrainian territory of Crimea, Mr. Obama and his team were already discussing how to respond. They talked about canceling the president’s trip to a summit meeting in Russia in June, shelving

As John noted below, President Obama spent an hour and a half on the telephone with Vladimir Putin discussing the Russian invasion of Ukraine. What was the conversation like? We can probably get a good sense of it by considering the account of President Bush’s conversations with Putin set forth by Peter Baker in his excellent book about the Bush presidency, Days of Fire. It’s well known that Bush and Putin got on well at first. But when the relationship soured, Bush became exasperated by his talks with the Russian bully. Putin seemed to delight in debating Bush.

President Barack Obama is warning Russia "there will be costs" for any military maneuvers it launches in Ukraine, a move U.S. and Ukrainian officials say they believe to be already underway. Officials say Obama may retaliate by canceling a trip to Russia this summer for an international summit and could also cut off trade discussions with Moscow. But it´s unclear whether those moves will have any impact on Russia´s calculus in Ukraine, which is at the center of what many see as a tug of war between East and West.

President Barack Obama fired a few verbs across the front armor of Russian President Vladimir Putin’s tanks, in a rushed statement just after 5 p.m. on Friday. The statement was made as Russian forces — including attack helicopters — appeared in peripheral parts of the Ukraine that are largely populated by ethnic Russians. There’s no evidence that Obama wants to get involved in what may become a war between the Ukraine and Russia. He did not threaten any significant retaliation if Russian force attack nor did he offer military aid to the Ukraine. He announced that Vice President Joe Biden — but not

President Obama´s proclaimed strategy to "bypass Congress" — most conspicuously his broad rewriting of the Affordable Care Act — has given unusual prominence to a fairly arcane legal doctrine: standing. Standing is what is preventing a potential blizzard of litigation against the president´s unilateral decrees, and ironically, it´s a doctrine liberal jurists have long decried. To challenge the government in federal court, it isn´t enough to simply believe that the government´s conduct is illegal or even unconstitutional. Federal courts can hear only specific disputes about the law as applied to particular people. To be heard in court, a person must have

Security Council spent the day trying to fashion a response to the rapid escalation of the Ukraine crisis after Russian troops took up positions throughout the autonomous republic of Crimea. Obama expressed “deep concern,” the White House said, and called on Russia to withdraw its forces back to its bases in Crimea and “to refrain from any interference elsewhere in Ukraine.” Putin appeared to have given little ground, according to a readout of the conversation from his office.
