Mondo's Monday Blog: The height of hypocricy
Mon Nov 13, 2017 11:20am

I don't have a dog in Roy Moore's campaign. I thought Luther Strange to be the better candidate.

Lots of folks are calling for Moore to drop out of the Alabama special election. On the left, because they politically want their Dem candidate to win (they don't really care about morals and ethics). On the right, because they want to moralistically distance themselves so their upcoming elections won't be tainted (they don't really care much about morals and ethics either).

In another quadrant, on the left side, we have Senator Menendez who is being prosecuted for fraud and having sex with underage girls, and nobody is making a big deal of that, except government prosecutors (he goes on trial on federal corruption charges in less than three weeks). None of the political pundits of any significance on either side are demanding his resignation. Why?

Merlin has been overly active in his prejudicial trial of Ol' Roy with multiple redundant posts, but has remained silent over the years on Senator Menendez, Bill Clinton (alleged rapist and sexual assaulter), and other Dem operatives. Could it be Merlin has an incurable bias?

It would be a good idea to take politics out of criminal allegations and focus on the actual alleged crimes.

Here's some facts: As far as we know, Ol' Roy never had sexual intercourse or any form of sexual penetration with a minor (a person under the age of consent) ... nobody is claiming otherwise. If he dated 18 year-olds (above the age of consent everywhere in the US) when he was 32, that is not a crime, not even if he had sex with them. Also, it is not so unusual for girls at age 18 to go out with men in their late 20s and early 30s ... it happens all the time. According to various sources, many girls have already had sex by the time they are 18 ... perhaps with men in an array of ages, so technically and legally, what difference the age of the erect "member"? Schools even pass out condoms in support of this activity.

If there is a basis for prosecuting Ol' Roy, then bring it on. If it is "he said ... she said", there's no legal basis for prosecution, so let it run its course in the court of public opinion ... if the wins the election, he will be plagued with bad press for the foreseeable future, but people like the Clintons have learned to survive and even thrive under similar conditions, even when the allegations were and still are far worse. If he loses, so be it. I don't really care. Of course, the media will drop him like a hot potato either way as they navigate shark-like in anticipation of the next political eruption.

Back to politics as a separate subject: Bottom line, Republicans and Democrats at every level have proven themselves to be incompetent and corrupt, and they have screwed our nation to the max ... $20 Trillion in debt, with nothing to show for it ... that's $57,000 for every man, woman and child in the US. I have little faith that either party will remedy this inexcusable situation. In fact, together, they will make it worse over time. In government, we have a confederacy of dunces, a ship of fools, and a thicket of thieves.
