Oklahoma Lawmaker Objects to Getting Koran as Gift
Monday, October 22, 2007

OKLAHOMA CITY — An Oklahoma lawmaker is objecting to getting a copy of the Koran from the Governor’s Ethnic American Advisory Council.

“I object to the use of the state Centennial Seal and the state Seal all in an effort to further their religion,” state Representative Rex Duncan said Monday.

As well he should!

Duncan also wrote his colleagues that he rejected the gift because “most Oklahomans do not endorse the idea of killing innocent women and children in the name of ideology.”

Most HUMANS do not endorse the idea of killing innocent women and children in the name of ideology!

Marjaneh Seirafi-Pour, chairwoman of the governor’s council and a Muslim, said she received a call from Duncan wondering whether state money was used to buy the books.

She told the Tulsa World newspaper that members of the Muslim community paid for the copies.

A reasonable question. Lord knows you can’t use taxpayer dollars to purchase Bibles!

“We are not trying to force anything on anyone. This is a peaceful, thoughtful project to introduce ourselves to leaders,” she said.

The “peaceful” religion….and don’t you F-ING forget it!

Earlier, lawmakers also received a copy of the Bible sponsored by The Baptist General Convention in Oklahoma.

“Mine is proudly on my desk on the Capitol and I don’t think I ever read a part of it that condones the killing of women and children in furtherance of God’s word,” Duncan said. “It’s one of the nicest things I’ve received in my three years in the Legislature.”

Amen, brother….amen!

Ellen and the Great Dog Debacle

Anyone that knows me knows that I am not really a fan of Ellen Degenerate, er, DeGeneres. Do I think she should read her paperwork more closely when adopting a dog? Sure I do. Do I think the animal wackos she dealt with are a bunch of idiots? ABSOLUTELY. But I never would have adopted a dog from them because I DO read the fine print…one of the many reasons why I choose not to adopt from our not-so-humane society locally.

LOS ANGELES — Ellen DeGeneres is in the doghouse with a pet rescue agency after giving a pooch away to her hairdresser because it didn’t get along with her cats.

The talk show hostess and her partner Portia de Rossi adopted Iggy, a Brussels Griffon mix, on Sept. 20. But when things did not work out, DeGeneres gave the dog to her hairdresser.

In doing so, DeGeneres violated an agreement with the Mutts and Moms agency by not informing them of the handoff.

When the agency called DeGeneres to ask about Iggy, she said she found another home for the dog. The agency sent a representative to the hairdresser’s home Sunday and took the dog away.

Mind you, they took the dog out of a home that DeGeneres knew would be a good home for the dog and away from two young children who bonded with the dog. …and you say you are in the “animal rescue” business?!?!? Yeah, right.

DeGeneres went public with the doggy ordeal Monday while taping an episode of her show to air Tuesday. She admitted she didn’t read all the paperwork involving the adoption.

C’mon Ellen…you’ve been in business for how long and you didn’t look at the paperwork, or have one of “your people” look at it? Not a wise decision, Ellen, which is why this mess is now a mess.

DeGeneres said she spent $3,000 having the dog neutered and trained to be with her cats. But the dog had too much energy and was too rambunctious, she told her television audience.

“I guess I signed a piece of paper that says if I can’t keep Iggy, it goes back to the rescue organization, which is not someone’s home, which is not a family,” she said in a show transcript provided to The Associated Press.

“I thought I did a good thing. I tried to find a loving home for the dog because I couldn’t keep it.”

See, Ellen, the animal wackos you dealt with don’t think you are capable of making a good decision about your pet. So even though you had the best of intentions, you aren’t in the business of “animal rescue” like they are so of course you are wrong [and you *did* violate that little agreement thingy, too…I’m not forgetting about that little tidbit]. They would prefer to put this animal back into their shelter so they can keep their little statistics up, keep your money and get an adoption fee from someone else. Their little piece of paper just proves that they believe that you can’t even own a pet on your own - that they have to have you sign a piece of paper so they can have a piece of you for the rest of the dog’s life.

They should do the right thing and take that dog back to those two broken-hearted kids who will likely give the dog more love and attention than a shelter that probably needs to confine the animal a good portion of the day. That’s animal rescue alright. How about making a rational choice that’s good for the dog versus your stupid rules? Not capable of independent thought or rationalization? Hmmmmm…

Don’t get me wrong, ultimately Ellen’s lack of attention to the paperwork caused all of this, but it just proves to me that people in the animal rescue business aren’t always in it for the best interest and welfare of an animal if they can’t evaluate a situation like this any better. It costs nothing for Ellen to bring the dog to a good home. It will cost money and hardship for the dog dragging him back to the shelter. But it sure supports the cause on paper, doesn’t it?!? One more in that column for “rescued animal” is what it looks like from here.

Chester Arthur Stiles, Videotaped, alleged child rapist, but still a convicted douche. Coming soon to a Pound Me In The Ass Prison Near You

Chester Arthur Stiles, the man identified in a videotape “allegedly” raping a three year old girl, has been arrested by police.

LAS VEGAS - Police said late Monday they had arrested Chester “Chet” Arthur Stiles, the man accused of videotaping himself while raping a 3-year-old girl.

So much for his ex-girlfriend’s claim that he’d “never be taken alive by the police.”

And what a pity it is that he was taken alive by the police. On the other hand, if convicted and sent to prison, we have the gratification of knowing that he’ll be on the receiving end of the horrors he visited (allegedly, conveniently videotaped) on a three year old girl.

What Did He Do to Deserve This?

Of course he did NOTHING. He’s a 13-year-old child!

A Houston couple was charged Friday with the starvation and abuse of a 13-year-old boy they kept locked in their attic, MyFoxHouston reported.

Geneva Foster, the boy’s mother, and Michael Ryan, his stepfather, were arrested and charged with felony injury to a child for keeping the boy locked in a closet or attic without food, MyFoxHouston reported.

These miscreants also had four other children in their house, but they didn’t appear to be abused like this boy. What could this boy have done to deserve the treatment he got?

The boy also showed signs of brutal physical abuse — broken bones, bite scars and damage to his liver, pancreas and kidneys, according to the Harris County Sheriff’s Office.

A spokeswoman for Child Protective Services told MyFoxHouston that the boy weighed only 72 pounds and had the appearance of a 7-year-old when he was discovered, and that his only nourishment came from cans of diet supplement Ensure.

There has to be a special place in hell for people who would do something like this to a child. I think it’s awful no matter what, but the fact that this child was the mother’s OWN FLESH AND BLOOD makes it that much more disgusting to me. I pray that this boy finds some healing hugs and love…he’s going to need a lot of love and care to get through what has happened to him. He will carry these scars the rest of his life. How DARE these monsters do this to him!!! If I was in the position of handing out punishments, I’d lock these assholes in an attic with a case of diet Ensure, hire someone to beat the shit out them and conveniently lose the key. I hope they NEVER see the outside of prison ever again for what they have done.

Chester Arthur Stiles Puts “Survivalist” Skills To The Test

New development in the search for Chester Arthur Stiles:

Seems like our search for Chester Arthur Stiles at the Salvation Army Shelter yesterday might have borne some fruit. A half-hour after we showed Stiles’ mug shot to people at the shelter, the security guard we spoke to thinks he spots Stiles - so he calls Metro. Witnesses say that person walked up to where the mug shot was posted on the wall, took one look at it, and then turned and ran away. He was chased down the street by a group of 20-30 homeless people, who lost the man near the train tracks behind Jerry’s Nugget Casino in North Town.

Metro showed up and interviewed people that claim to have seen Stiles. They told me today that they are not certain it was a valid sighting but they are not discounting it either.

But one thing is for certain, Stiles will have a tougher time now blending in with the homeless. Shelter staff made copies of the mug shot we gave them and I’m told Stiles’ picture is posted at churches, soup kitchens, and bars in the area.

Wait a second here. I thought this guy was a “survivalist” who is “very, very, dangerous” and carried a “combat-style knife.” Why would he run? We know he fancied himself as a Navy SEAL, so why didn’t he stand his ground and go down fighting? His ex-girlfriend told the media that “he’d never be taken by the police.”

Maybe it’s because he wasn’t facing defenseless three year old girls.

While there is a slim possibility that some drunken tourist, broke from constantly losing at the roulette wheel, wandered into the shelter and thought he saw himself in the mug shot and ran, it’s probably not very likely.

Assuming it was our man Chet, and considering the possibility that at least some of the homeless chasing him were Vietnam vets, he’s very, very lucky he escaped intact.



Chester Arthur Stiles, Videotaped, alleged child rapist, but still a convicted douche. If you see this man, remember, he’s been trained to run really, really fast, so keep Las Vegas police on speed dial

Hunting Subhumans

KVBC (Las Vegas) reporter Jesse Corona is on the prowl for Chester Arthur “Chet” Stiles, the man seen in the four year old video molesting a three year old little girl.

We even talked to someone who claims she’s seen Stiles more recently.

Man from Salvation Army: He was here yesterday.

Jesse Corona: Yesterday?

Man from Salvation Army: Yeah. He stays here

Shelter staff posted Stiles’ mug shot on the wall. Reaction to hearing what he was wanted for was extreme. Many of the residents indicated if they found him first, he would be in rough shape by the time Metro was called.

Sounds to me like Chester Stiles isn’t the “survivalist” that he’s been made out to be. It also seems that he really isn’t all that impervious to a lack of electricity and water as was originally implied. But watch out, he carries a knife! Combat style, even!

I stand by what I said in my earlier post:

No, I believe Stiles is holed up in some seedy roach infested domicile with a neon sign that reads “otel” in the dark and that advertises weekly rates. Either that, or he’s holed up with a pedophile buddy. These scumbags stick together, just ask NAMBLA. I’d also guess he bundles up to go out in public, and scurries around furtively wondering if that convenience store clerk recognized his face.

While the Salvation Army isn’t necessarily a seedy roach infested domicile, it sure isn’t the Bellagio.

I also agree with Jesse Corona’s take on the mother that was posted on his blog which I linked above:

Tuesday we got the news the mother of the child victim would be issuing a statement through her attorney in an 11:30 press conference. The gist of that conference was that the mother wanted her family to be left alone and given space by the media. She (through her attorney) says she is worried about her daughter being victimized through the media. When I asked her attorney what about the actual victimization of her daughter that took place 4 years ago, (how could she not have seen any signs or known what was going on?) her attorney said he didn’t want to speculate, but she just didn’t. He also said she was a hard-working single mother who worked six days a week and left her child in the care of a nanny.

The mother speculates the abuse happened during that time, but also says Stiles was a distant family friend and never a caretaker. Mom also says she didn’t see any of the EXTENSIVE news coverage on every TV channel in every newspaper and had to be told her daughter was the girl in the video by a family friend.

Questions, questions. Why does Mom have to issue statements through an attorney? What exactly is a “distant family friend?” What about the nanny? If this happened when Mom was at work, didn’t this occur when the nanny was in charge? What did the nanny know and when did h/she know it?

The “hard working single mother who works six days a week” thing smells of “excuse” to me. What are they trying to convey, that only married, unemployed parents would notice that their three year old daughter was being abused sexually? Or the lazy single mother who only works 5 days a week, she’d notice?



Chester Arthur Stiles, Not The SEAL You Thought He Was: If You See This Man, Turn Him Over To The Las Vegas Salvation Army, Then Call The Las Vegas Police, But Wait Awhile

Oh, and thanks to commenter Sammii, Chester Arthur “Chet” Stiles was never a Navy SEAL

The quarry of a nationwide police manhunt, accused of videotaping himself raping a 3-year old girl, was never a Navy SEAL as he claimed and authorities have reported, the Navy said Tuesday.

It’s too bad for Mr. Stiles. He’s going to really need some survival skills once he hits the penitentiary.

“…she had taken good care of the children…”

…so is that why she drown them both in the bathtub?

CLEVELAND — A 2-year-old girl and her 4-year-old sister were apparently drowned in a bathtub Monday, and their mother was arrested, police said.

A man who said he is the girls’ father told investigators the woman called him at work and said their children “are at peace,” said Cleveland police Lt. Thomas Stacho.

Another tragic end to the lives of two beautiful children at the hands of a parent. I’m certain she’s going to pull out the “Andrea Yates” M.O. - I was depressed, the devil made me do it, BLAH, BLAH, BLAH.

Deondra Hurt, 19, who lives in the same two-story apartment building, said she heard the girls’ father screaming and shouting. She later went to the apartment and saw their mother “on a couch, and she was just sitting there. She was a nice girl. It’s real sad.”

Stacho said the girls apparently drowned, but autopsies were pending Tuesday to officially determine the causes of death. The county coroner was trying to confirm the victims’ correct names Monday.

Hurt said the woman had taken good care of the children.

“She always had her kids dressed up, with hair done every day,” Hurt said. “They were well-behaved kids. They played jump rope and would write on the ground with chalk.”

Yep, Andrea Yates took care of her kids, too. And now she’s living the rest of her life sharing fond memories about her children…yes, the children she methodically murdered by drowning them in the bathtub. She’s not in prison, but in an institution because she was found “not guilty” by reason of insanity. I’m guessing that will be the plea in this case as well. In the mean time, please say a prayer for the two little girls who no longer breathe, play, or dress up. They will never see their 5th birthday. They will never have a boyfriend, they won’t be cheerleaders, they won’t ever marry, go to school, or have children of their own. Thanks, Mom.
