    NEW YORK (AP) – Convicted child killer Joel Steinberg has a job as a television producer waiting when he’s released from prison next summer after serving 17 years, his attorney said Monday.

    Steinberg will work for “New York Confidential,” an interview show on a local cable station, attorney Darnay Hoffman said.
    “He has contacts in prison,” Hoffman said, explaining that Steinberg, a disbarred lawyer, knows some of the state’s most notorious criminals. “He knows how to go into a prison and get a story.”
    Steinberg, 62, is completing an 8-to-25-year prison term for manslaughter in the death of his illegally adopted daughter, Lisa, and is expected to be released next June.

    In 1987, Steinberg fatally struck 6-year-old Lisa, the girl he had taken as a days-old infant from an unwed teenager. He was supposed to arrange an adoption, but instead took the baby home to his live-in companion, Hedda Nussbaum.
    Steinberg left the unconscious child while he went out. Nussbaum stayed home with the first-grader but did nothing all night. An ambulance was called the next morning. The child died three days later.

    Personally, I hope someone blows this motherfuckers head off. There are only a few things that really enrage me, but hurting a child is most definately one of them. I wonder if the scumbags that hired him will be able to go home and look at their children tonight and tell them how much they love them.

    Came across this list of comments over at Neil Boortz site. We are educating a generation of fricking socialists and morons. Very scary that people actually think this way:
    “About the Iraq war, it is the UN’s decision, they should be the police of the world, so to speak. The UN should be the decision maker, Not a country who may have other things on their agenda. If America can ignore the UN, what is the point of it?”
    “No, I don’t think I would work this modern day….there’s too much greed in this world. Here’s my idea: Take a country, make it communist, but don’t do the dictator thing. Then you have a perfect country, as long as there is a council of 20 or so to oversee the country.”
    “Ok… I hate Bush but he’s not Hitler. He’s horrible, and responsible for the deaths of thousands, but he’s just not as smart as Hitler.”
    And this comment about an18 year old homeless male who has been sentenced to 25 years in jail for selling marijuana. “Now I don’t think this is right but I want to point out he was homeless and that the government has a responsibility to him.”
    “Everybody ought to have an equal amount of stuff.”

    There is a list of statements made by people who are now routinely calling President Bush all kinds of names circulating around the internet. Here is the list as I have seen it:
    “One way or the other, we are determined to deny Iraq the capacity to develop weapons of mass destruction and the missiles to deliver them. That is our bottom line.” President Clinton, Feb. 4, 1998.
    “If Saddam rejects peace and we have to use force, our purpose is clear. We want to seriously diminish the threat posed by Iraq’s weapons of mass destruction program.” President Clinton, Feb. 17, 1998.
    “Iraq is a long way from [here], but what happens there matters a great deal here. For the risks that the leaders of a rogue state will use nuclear, chemical or biological weapons against us or our allies is the greatest security threat we face.” Madeline Albright, Feb 18, 1998.
    “He will use those weapons of mass destruction again, as he has ten times since 1983.” Sandy Berger, Clinton National Security Adviser, Feb, 18, 1998.
    “[W]e urge you, after consulting with Congress, and consistent with the U.S. Constitution and laws, to take necessary actions (including, if appropriate, air and missile strikes on suspect Iraqi sites) to respond effectively to the threat posed by Iraq’s refusal to end its weapons of mass destruction programs.” Letter to President Clinton, signed by Sens. Carl Levin, Tom Daschle, John Kerry, and others Oct. 9, 1998.
    “Saddam Hussein has been engaged in the development of weapons of Mass destruction technology which is a threat to countries in the region and he has made a mockery of the weapons inspection process.” Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D, CA), Dec. 16, 1998.
    “Hussein has … chosen to spend his money on building weapons of mass destruction and palaces for his cronies.” Madeline Albright, Clinton Secretary of State, Nov. 10, 1999.
    “There is no doubt that … Saddam Hussein has reinvigorated his weapons programs. Reports indicate that biological, chemical and nuclear programs continue apace and may be back to pre-Gulf War status. In addition, Saddam continues to redefine delivery systems and is doubtless using the cover of a licit missile program to develop longer-range missiles that will threaten the United States and our allies.” Letter to President Bush, Signed by Sen. Bob Graham (D, FL,) and others, Dec, 5, 2001.
    “We begin with the common belief that Saddam Hussein is a tyrant and a threat to the peace and stability of the region. He has ignored the mandate of the United Nations and is building weapons of mass destruction and the means of delivering them.” Sen. Carl Levin (d, MI), Sept. 19, 2002.
    “We know that he has stored secret supplies of biological and chemical weapons throughout his country.” Al Gore, Sept. 23, 2002.
    “Iraq’s search for weapons of mass destruction has proven impossible to deter and we should assume that it will continue for as long as Saddam is in power.” Al Gore, Sept. 23, 2002.
    “We have known for many years that Saddam Hussein is seeking and developing weapons of mass destruction.” Senator Ted Kennedy (D, MA), Sept. 27, 2002.
    “The last UN weapons inspectors left Iraq in October of 1998. We are confident that Saddam Hussein retains some stockpiles of chemical and biological weapons, and that he has since embarked on a crash course to build up his chemical and biological warfare capabilities. Intelligence reports indicate that he is seeking nuclear weapons…” Sen. Robert Byrd (D, WV), Oct. 3, 2002.
    I will be voting to give the President of the United States the authority to use force– if necessary — to disarm Saddam Hussein because I believe that a deadly arsenal of weapons of mass destruction in his hands is a real and grave threat to our security.” Sen. John F. Kerry (D, MA), Oct. 9, 2002.
    “There is unmistakable evidence that Saddam Hussein is working aggressively to develop nuclear weapons and will likely have nuclear weapons within the next five years … We also should remember we have always underestimated the progress Saddam has made in development of weapons of mass destruction.” Sen. Jay Rockefeller (D, WV), Oct 10, 2002,
    “He has systematically violated, over the course of the past 11 years, every significant UN resolution that has demanded that he disarm and destroy his chemical and biological weapons, and any nuclear capacity. This he has refused to do.” Rep. Henry Waxman (D, CA), Oct. 10, 2002.
    “In the four years since the inspectors left, intelligence reports show that Saddam Hussein has worked to rebuild his chemical and biological weapons stock, his missile delivery capability, and his nuclear program. He has also given aid, comfort, and sanctuary to terrorists, including al Qaeda members. It is clear, however, that if left unchecked, Saddam Hussein will continue to increase his capacity to wage biological and chemical warfare, and will keep trying to develop nuclear weapons.” Sen. Hillary Clinton (D, NY), Oct 10, 2002,
    “We are in possession of what I think to be compelling evidence that Saddam Hussein has, and has had for a number of years, a developing capacity for the production and storage of weapons of mass destruction.” Sen. Bob Graham (D, FL), Dec. 8, 2002.
    “[W]ithout question, we need to disarm Saddam Hussein. He is a brutal, murderous dictator, leading an oppressive regime … He presents a particularly grievous threat because he is so consistently prone to miscalculation … And now he is miscalculating America’s response to his continued deceit and his consistent grasp for weapons of mass destruction … So the threat of Saddam Hussein with weapons of mass destruction is real …” Sen. John F. Kerry (D, MA), Jan. 23. 2003.

    Hypocrites? You might say that.

       Was reading some news reports over at CNN and came across one about the aftermath of Isabel. Harris-Teeter, a privately owned grocery store, was giving out bags of ice. Private corporations, including the one I work for, do this kind of stuff all the time. When there is an emergency, that is not the time to be gouging people, but taking care of them, even at high cost. One of the people there made the comment:

    “Why is a private store the place that we’re getting ice, and not the federal government?”

       Personally, I believe this is the way it should be. Yes, in an emergency such as this, the government should be somewhat involved, but only minimally. Private donations, and help is the way to go. The Federal government just needs to stay out of things and let people learn to be responsible for themselves.

       Why is it that most of the sites that I come across are either Republicans lambasting the Democrats for being weasly liars that lean toward socialism, OR Democrats complaining about how the Republicans, particularly Bush, are totalitarians who are going to bankrupt the country. Blah blah blah. There is a touch of truth to all of them though, from what I have seen.
       Of course, there is also a great bit of expounding on untruths as well. I find this particularly distasteful, particularly since most of these fucking geeks couldn’t bear to be parted from there computer world long enough to go out and vote. There was a Newsweek Poll last week that reported that 51% of Americans approve of the job that Bush is doing, 42% disaprove, and 7% don’t know. Since only approximately 33% of the American public can bring it upon themselves to do their constituional duty and vote, it doesn’t matter what the other 67% fucking think. You want to approve or disaprove of something the government is doing, vote or shut the hell up.
       I would probably be in the category of “don’t know” simply because there are certain things that he has done and is doing that I like, and some that I do not. I did not vote for Bush, nor did I vote for Gore. Normally I try to vote Libertarian unless it is just some whacko that I cannot stomach. That having been said, I am damn glad that Bush was at the helm when 9/11 went down. I do not think that any of the other candidates would have handled it quite so well. Now that we are past that, and we ARE past it, I find myself starting to disagree wholeheartedly with the administration. Instead of hunkering down and fixing our security problems, such as our borders, air travel, and ship travel, we are slowly letting our rights be taken away by such idiotic acts as Patriot I and II.
       Now that it looks (at least currently) like Bush is starting to lose support, Hitlary seems to be toying with the idea of running for President now, instead of 2008, which is when most people expect her to run. This would be disastrous for our country. Bill Clinton has made the statement that he is sure that the people of New York would forgive her if she decided to run for President, just as the people of Arkansas forgave him. Why would he say such a thing unless she were seriously considering it?
       Anyhow, this started out as a discourse against other blogs. I do enjoy reading quite a few of them, even if they are ill-informed, ot just plain wrong, but think it is time that people started really looking into just what the truth is, and trying to find it, instead of just believing everything that they read or see on CNN or FOX.

       I think that what actually gets me about how the democrats talk about the “wealthiest americans”, and how our tax cuts should be rolled back for this and that is because that makes ME, and probably you, one of those wealthiest. In the U.S., the top 10% of wage earners already pay 90% of the income tax. In order to belong in this TOP 10% of tax payers, you have to GROSS (not bring home) $90,000 per year, as a couple. That means that if you and your wife are cop and a teacher, two of the lowest paid public workers, you are probably in the top 10% of income producers in this country, and the democrats want to take away more of your hard earned money. These are hard facts, not bullshit.
       Basically this means that if I quit my job and start collecting welfare I could probably keep more of my money. That sucks. I work my ass of just to make ends meet. I have a car sitting in my driveway with a broken water-pump because I cannot afford to get it fixed, and according to the goverment I am rich. I shop at the consignment store for my slacks because I am rich. I have to count change for gas money some days and I am rich.
       If the goverment really wanted to fix things, they would do away with the IRS entirely, and go to a fair sales tax. But they do not want to fix it. It gets them elected. Thus, the democrats can scare old people by moaning about how the republicans want to take away social security, blah, blah, blah, while the republicans can complain about how the democrats are going to tax us to death. It’s all about politics. If YOU really want to help fix things, get your ass off the TV couch and vote. Elect people that don’t want to be there. Get some doctors, and cab drivers, and business owners, and vets, and garbage men that will serve and get the hell out in a couple of years because they just want to make things really better for their families and then go home to them.

    John Kerry said, “If I am President, I will rollback the Bush tax breaks for the wealthiest Americans so we can invest in education, health care, and the skills of our workers. But I want to give the middle class a tax cut, not a tax increase. Too many middle class people are getting pummeled everywhere they turn – more bills to pay, a higher cost of living.
    What a crock of shit. I AM the middle class, and the tax breaks I have seen from the Bush administration have been wonderful. Bush and his ilk could all use a bit of help getting back to the smaller government mantra that they used to preach, but his economic policy has been pretty good so far. Kerry wanting to “invest” in education and health care means that he might give you a tax break, but thats because they will actually go up in order to pay for his version of education, and health care. What the hell kind of break is that?
