Truth - Schadenfreude, Soccer Moms, and Sanctimony

It was the best of times, it was the worst of times.  Today I'm honored to have a guest blogger post, who has a talented way of conveying the message.  I love the words, the flow, and more importantly the story.  Give it up for the purveyor of veritas Chris Felt from Cantrips and Canticles.

For the last few months I've come seen my mother rapt to the television screen.  She's obsessed with the Jodi Arias trial.  Every few days she reminded me of the latest bit of gory gossip.  Unfortunately she's not alone.  I was over her house today eating lunch while she was watching the trial again.  Outside of the courthouse in Arizona, hundreds of gawkers had gathered to hear the final verdict in this case.  As I watched the crowd I was filled with revulsion.  People were waving at the cameras,  cheering and vying for the spotlight to capture their 15 seconds of fame.  People had even brought their children to celebrate in this distasteful American past time.  Again, it made me want to vomit.  Shortly after the verdict was read the word had reached the crowd via social media.  The crowd erupted into applause.  A news reporter asked a woman her thoughts and she responded "Thank you Jesus!"  As if there weren't a more antithetical statement ever made. 

But that's the deal.  It wasn't antithetical at all.  The modern incarnation of the hypocritical pseudo-rectitude filled blowhard puts the hype in hypocrite. Move over New Testament Jesus, say hello to your vengeful father.  All of the pleas for justice for the victim were nothing more than a facade worn on the gleeful faces of the wicked.  They all really gathered together to be on TV and to coalesce with other non-working fat ass pieces of shit.  Good job Jerry Springer fans.  You've evolved no more than an amoeba's ass since the public hangings of the 19th century.

Contrast this with the reaction from the Charles Ramsey,  the light-hearted savior of the 3 kidnapped girls from Columbus, Ohio.  He responded to a scream, saved a few girls and called 9-11.  Was he full of pride at what he had done?  Not really.  He was just surprised that it had happened right next door.  Even his neighbors have confessed to feeling shame for not having discovered them sooner.  Ramsey and his neighbors that have given hope to so many have accidentally behaved better than hundreds of the lazy, bleacher sitting, train wreck magnets in Arizona.

Emulate Charles Ramsey or the Pork Collective.  The choice is yours.

    I agree completely! What made this trial so different from murder trials going on every day in this country? Nuts (the reaction and those so involved in this crap) -b-
