What a Dick!...tator: The Musharraf Rant

A.K.A. Bush's Dick - And I Ain't Talkin' 'Bout Cheney

What you've got over there in Pakistan right now is yet another one of those petty power-obsessed pricks doing what petty power-obsessed pricks always seem to do: Usurp power. Like so many other egotistical, megalomaniacal buffoons, this Musharraf idiot sees himself as the savior of his country. And to save it, of course, he must attack anyone and everyone that challenges his right to be Big Boss and Supreme Savior. If that means destroying the judiciary and throwing all the legitimate democratic leaders in jail, well so be it. Like Mugabe, like Kim Jong Mentally-il, like Pinochet, like Gaddafi, like every other Messianic Savior of Nation and People out there, he not only knows that he's right and everyone else is wrong, he also knows that he alone can see the way forward and he alone can save the nation from ruin. A ridiculously pathetic buffoon, straight and simple.

The What's Not To Like Rant (Things Are Lookin' Up)

Are you one of those people who after reading one too many of my rants feels like saying: "Hey, don't be so bloody pessimistic, the world may seem to be a giant house of horrors at times, but really it's not all that bad"? Well, you may be surprised to hear that I totally agree with you. So many countries have indeed been moving forward and progressing in so many different ways recently. Things are looking up the world over. Let's count the ways.

The Pakistan Rant or How I Learned To Stop Worrying and Love The Rapists

Imagine a law designed and used specifically to protect rapists and to punish those who are raped. A law - a whole legal system in fact (the Sharia Islamic law system) - that says rape doesn't actually happen, it's really just women fornicating.

 

In this legal system, with this form of "justice", 99% of rapists go free while many raped women are sent to prison to serve long sentences. Sound ridiculous? Sound impossible? Well, it exists alright, in a very real country called Pakistan, and thousands of very real women are wasting away in prison right at this very moment simply because they were raped.

The Scotland Rant

Now here's something that even the Taliban might find extreme, unjust, ridiculous and barbaric. The government of Scotland has proposed a law to jail the parents of juvenile offenders/criminals. The kid steals a car - throw the mom in jail! The kid gets into a fight and stabs someone - send dad to prison! Make the bastard pay! If mom has died or run off, well then throw grandma in jail! What the hell? Someone's got to pay for junior's bad behavior.
