Private Message

Lately, over the past couple of months, I have been getting quite a few hits to this post, about a sex offender named Robert Neil Boyd. The answers to your probable questions are: yes, he got arrested; yes, he went to jail; yes, he is in the national sex offender registry; and yes, he did it. There was one person in his acquaintance who did not wish to cover for him.

South Carolina Responsible Journalism Resgistry Law

Republican South Carolina representative Mike Pitts, pictured above, has sponsored a bill in his state's congress, which will be called the South Carolina Responsible Journalism Registry Law if it gets passed. Before covering matters related to government, a journalist would be required to undergo a background check, similar to the background check required before buying a handgun, to report the news. No one who has written anything controversial, or who has written anything that has garnered complaints about government, petitions, or boycotts would be allowed to cover state events. There would also be a non-refundable fee for the background check to report the news, effecting a charge to tell the truth! Also, every journalist in South Carolina would have to be listed in a registry. Hmm....where has your blogger heard something like this before? This sounds an awful lot like the German Law for the Restoration of the Professional Civil Service in 1933, which was aimed at forcing Jews out of any professional field in Nazi Germany.

This bill is such a gross violation of the First Amendment to the Constitution that it will never pass. Still, the question that needs to be answered is this: why is South Carolina so afraid of writers and journalists?

Terri Horman Speaks


Whoa! Terri Horman speaks! More than five years after her former stepson, Kyron Horman, the little boy who disappeared from his school in Portland, Oregon, needed her to speak! There are more problems with this than your faithful blogger can shake a stick at, but here are the ones she sees as the biggest. First of all, Miss Terri told her audience that she did not "kill her son". Well, well; the last time anyone checked, Kyron was NOT her son. Terri Horman's son is a young man by the name of James Moulton, and we all know that Terri Horman did not kill James. For extra outrage value, Terri also referred to Kyron as "the boy". "The boy" has a name: Kyron. Terri is well aware of this. She is also aware of something else; her ongoing desire to distance herself from Kyron, or anything that has ever reminded her of Kyron.

The second crazy problem with Terri's insane drivel is her insistence that she was NOT the last person to see Kyron. How would she know this? If Miss Terri truly left the school without Kyron, after watching him walk toward his classroom, on June 4, 2010, exactly how would she know if anyone else had seen him afterward? How? If she knows that someone else had contact with Kyron after she left the school, she needs to come forward to law enforcement with that information, rather than attempting to make money from interviews with magazines that peddle sensationalism. Just for the record, her statements have always conflicted with the statements of eyewitnesses, who saw her leave the building with her infant daughter, Kiara, and with Kyron.

The third serious problem with all of this goes back to your faithful blogger's initial outrage at Terri Horman for waiting five years to say anything about Kyron's missing persons case. Why five years? What makes five years so special, for the up and coming criminal class? A plausible theory about this involves the statute of limitations for various crimes in the state of Oregon. Five years is a common statute of limitation in many states for serious misdemeanors and some felonies, and for many civil torts. Oregon's statute of limitations for most types of child prostitution is six years. Could Terri Horman's decision to speak now be linked to something she did six years ago? If so, did it involve Kyron? If Terri Horman really wanted to help find Kyron, she would have done so in June of 2010, not January of 2016.

And now here's a question for Terri. Hey Terri, how come you borrowed the bus drivers' cell phone to call the school and ask why Kyron wasn't on the school bus? Why didn't you use your own? Did (ahem) someone else have it? What about those burn phones you and your buddies kept purchasing?

Affluenza, A Petition From MADD

Remember Ethan Couch, the "affluenza kid"? Now that he has been caught, after Tonya Couch, his so-called "mother", helped him hide in Mexico in order to avoid the constraints of probation for the four murders of which he was convicted in 2013, and is fighting deportation, a judge has the option of transferring his case from juvenile court to adult court. Had he been held accountable for his crimes, or even if he had shown some gratitude for his light sentence and taken advantage of the opportunity to sober up, perhaps so many people would not be outraged at him and his mother.

Among those outraged are Mothers Against Drunk Driving. They have circulated a petition to show Texas how the rest of the nation feels about rich teens who drive drunk, kill people, and get free passes from the judicial system to do it again, while otherwise violating probation. The link is shared here, and it is not only worth reading, but worth signing. Petition To Fight Affluenza

Wichita Public School Hires Sex Offender

You read the title correctly. One of the illustrious and brilliantly run public schools in Kansas has hired someone who has been charged with possession of child pornography to teach children. It seems that Steven Thompson resigned his teaching post at Garden City Community College amid an investigation about some kiddie porn that allegedly was found on one of his computers, and made way to Wichita. He was hired at the beginning of the 2015-2016 school year at a public school, only to be arrested on a warrant from Finney County, Kansas, to answer for the evidence that found. You might wonder how this could happen, since Thompson is, after all, out on bond for sex crimes. Susan Arensman, spokesperson for the public schools in Wichita has an answer: nothing showed up on the background check because Thompson had not yet been arrested or charged. But then, you might ask, do "unified" school districts in Kansas go the extra mile for the children they claim to serve, and check the references of the teachers they hire? While a former employer might not provide in depth details about a police investigation, it is hard to imagine that a teacher who disappears during a kiddie porn investigation.....on HIS computer......would get a glowing recommendation from his former employer. Common sense, Kansas. Common sense.

How The Pigs Stole Christmas

Sheriff David Groves, of Cherokee County, Kansas, decided to help Missouri out with a bench warrant for some guy named Doug Alexius. Alexius had missed court for a misdemeanor charge, and getting him back to wherever he was supposed to be was a matter of top priority. The pigs in Kansas have stated over and over again that Alexius was wanted for a felony, but upon closer scrutiny, it has become clear that this was only a bench warrant for missing court. To fast forward to December 16 of 2015, Groves decided that since a woman named Nita Lane had once dated Mr. Alexius, he must have hidden in her home. So he sent a nice fat pig to knock on her Galena, Kansas door. She put a clothespin on her nose (not really, but she should have) and told the pig that Mr. Alexius did not live at her home, was no longer a friend or acquaintance, and was not inside the home at the time. The pig came back with an outdated infrared camera, and without stopping to read the directions for use, snapped some shots of the house. As it happened, there were sources of heat inside! Imagine that, in the middle of December! Mr. Piggie knocked on the door again, and informed Ms. Lane and her children that they had to evacuate the premises while he and his SWAT team goons "negotiated" with the "fugitive from justice".

                          This is where Kansas cops and the FBI tore into the upstairs of
                                 Nita Lane's house. The broke a bunch of windows, too.

Ms. Lane gathered up her children and vacated, while repeatedly telling the pigs that their quarry was not on the premises. The pigs responded by spending nineteen hours calling out epithets and threats to an empty house. Finally, after an entire night, followed by the next day, of threatening to "rotate his officers out", Sheriff Groves and the FBI decided it was time to give up and go have doughnuts and coffee. While searching, they poked holes in the side of the house, used a wrecker to smash the upstairs, threw the childrens' toys and personal belongings everywhere, tore apart the Christmas tree and stomped on all the ornaments, and threw the Christmas tree out the window.

The FBI decided that all the windows, the siding, the walls, and the structure of the house, itself, could be fixed with $8,000.00, which they graciously offered to the now homeless Ms. Lane and her children. To be completely real here, $8,000.00 probably wouldn't even get the family a new roof, let alone fix all the other damage done by the police in Kansas. No mention was made of reimbursing the family for the furniture, or for the childrens' toys. A gofundme page has been set up to help.

We now hold fundraisers for the victims of police violence. Is there anyone out there, still, who does not understand why policemen are known colloquially as "pigs''? It might also be worth a mention that despite the status of Doug Alexius as a fugitive, The FBI and Kansas law enforcement do not appear terribly interested in media coverage to assist in his capture.

Jesus Appears In Kansas Tree

So now we know where Jesus actually lives. He lives in a tree, outside of Our Lady of Guadalupe Church, in Topeka, Kansas. No kidding, that's what some folks actually think. They think it to the extent that they called the local news station to report this phenomenon, and the local news station actually reported it! Of course, it is quite obvious that the excitable Christians in Kansas have it all wrong, here. That is not Jesus Christ in the tree; the face in the tree is clearly that of Jim Morrison of the Doors!
