I had planned on writing today about the amazing women that collectively formed our Nation Women's Soccer Team.

They are so inspiring and amazing. They re strong and fierce. They are brave and they are confident. They are everything we were told we could be when we grew up. I spent the morning yesterday smiling and filled with happiness as I watched the parade to honor them.

And then at 2 o'clock in the afternoon, the Secretary of Labour gave a press conference to address his sweetheart deal with the registered sex offender, Jeffrey Epstein. Wapo writes:
His account did not sit well with Barry Krischer, who was the Palm Beach County attorney during the case. Krischer, a Democrat, said Acosta “should not be allowed to rewrite history.”

Acosta’s South Florida office had gotten to the point of drafting an indictment that could have sent Epstein to federal prison for life. But it was never filed, leading to Epstein’s guilty plea to two state prostitution-related charges. In addition to the work-release jail sentence, Epstein was required to make payments to victims and register as a sex offender.

Krischer said the federal indictment was “abandoned after secret negotiations between Mr. Epstein’s lawyers and Mr. Acosta.” He added: “If Mr. Acosta was truly concerned with the State’s case and felt he had to rescue the matter, he would have moved forward with the 53-page indictment that his own office drafted.”
I was nauseated at the things he said.

Women really are second class citizens to men like Trump, Epstein Acosta and more, and I cannot tell you how utterly disheartened I am about this. I truly love our male allies and friends like you all reading this, but it just isn't enough. Something HAS to change. Women can only scream so loud for equal protection from men. We need your help.

Morning

I was struck by this yesterday -





I mean how does 1 person know 5 pedophiles? How?! Even I know from watching L&O:SVU that if you know that many pedophiles you're probably also a pedophile. LIek seriously, WTF!

I am really scared that (as I said yesterday) what we see is just a fraction of what really is, Mala.

I know I will get better, but I am in a dark place this week.

Oh I totally believe that!
Can't seem to get out of my dark place for very long - I've stress eaten to the point that any weight I lost its back and it brought friends. All I want to do is take a bat to something to let go of some of this fury.

I fear that things are going to get worse. If I was with the State's Attorney's office in Florida at the time of Epstein's deal, I would call every media outlet and show what the state planned. Then, I would call Acosta a liar and a fraud.


I am proud of the Women's Soccer Team, who are serving as good role models for young girls and young boys who can see what women can achieve. However, there is a darkness in this nation that seems to be growing.

There are some people who make me think that an erupting supervolcano or an asteroid strike that ends civilization as we know it and plunges us into an Ice Age might be a good thing. Mr. Dershowitz, you are a member of this ignominious group.

I however think he should be treated like dog crap.

Not as well written as you, Will, I know.

I was work friends with a guy who turned out to be a pedophile. I and a couple of other nerds used to have lunch with him almost every day. He never came across as focused on kids. He was a nice Christian family man. He and his wife had fertility issues and adopted two kids from foster care. Then one day he wasn't at work. And then another. We started to wonder what was happening. I stopped by his boss's cube and asked her what was going on with him, she kind of stuttered and said he was "off." The next day the new broke about a sting operation that the Sheriff's Office had done that busted a bunch of kid diddlers. When he was arrested he has a bunch of kiddie porn on his phone. You never know who the monsters are.

True. Could almost understand knowing 1 person like that, I mean people live next door to serial killers and never know it too. But that seems like a 1 off kind of things. Knowing 5? That raises huge alarm bells for me.

Five is extreme. Hell knowing two would be as well.

In the good news file, I have two in person interviews tomorrow - one in Gary in the morning and one in Chicago in the afternoon. With the phone interview with a Los Angeles area school district on Tuesday, I may soon have to make some important decisions

Did it have a delayed reaction to the rantings of the Clod Emperor of Doom?
