Random thoughts and quick news

When I read the indictment against former Speaker of the House, Dennis Hastert, yesterday one thing stuck out. The very first line talked about his time as a high school teacher and coach. Now we may know why. Two unnamed federal law enforcement officials say the payoffs relate to sexual misconduct with a male during Hastert's time at the school. This also goes with rumors I heard when Hastert was still in office about him being "in the closet". Those rumors came from a source I trust very much. 

Last week we found out that darling of the right, Josh Duggar, had a serious touching problem with his little sisters when he was a teen. Now we learn about a Tea Party leader and former "family values" candidate that has a kiddie porn problem. Last week, Jospeh Hayon, second President (whatever that is!) of the Brooklyn Tea Party was busted for trading child porn pictures through his email account. The victims were all children from 12 years old, all the way down to 2. Sick doesn't even begin to describe this.


Now that it has come out that Bill and Hillary Clinton have made a living after leaving the White House, there is outrage in Washington. This has lead to a bi-partisan bill to limit expenses of former presidents. It sounds like a great idea, and is, but when you consider that for years Congress has failed to move bills forward stripping former members of their tax payer funded pensions should they leave office under expulsion or prison, then you can see that Congress really isn't worried about cutting costs, just playing their bullshit games. 

News of an interesting buyout is rocking the tech world today with news that Verizon will be buying AOL for $4.4 billion. This is also interesting news in the blog world, as Huffington Post will now be owned by a communications giant. On the tech side of things, this leaves the question of what will happen with Yahoo, who was rumored to merge with AOL a few months ago.
