Does blood really boil?

Some days are sad, some are maddening.  I did not Google about boiling blood and have no intention to do so, but can say that mine feels that way.

The sad is the anniversary of my Dad's unnecessary suffering and death.  We also learned that another female cousin of mine, also in her 60's, has been diagnosed with Alzheimers.  To talk to her you would not truly notice anything, just as the dementia of my 92 year old aunt is hidden.  Why?  Because unless you know their lives intimately, you do not realize what they are saying is not correct.  If I did not know that the housekeeper I sent to her to help with spring cleaning was there two weeks ago and won't return until month's end, I would think nothing of her telling me that she just left her house and is coming back tomorrow.  It's sometimes difficult to notice when a friend or relative is out of touch with reality, unless as I said, you know the facts.  To that point, I am getting concerned for myself.  Really.

As for the boiling blood, another infant was allowed to be beaten by a father/boyfriend, 22 rib fractures, broken femur, collarbone, at 4 months of age.  It seems every story I read involves an idiot mother who allows a man to beat and abuse their infants and children because having a man is more important.  This happened last September and she is finally charged.  She failed to get medical attention for the baby's pain and suffering and allowed the abuse to continue. I've had a few broken ribs and can't imagine the pain this child endured. I know it's considered barbaric, but I would like every abusive non-nurturing unsafe selfish irresponsible idiotic excuse for a mother sterilized.  Really. The numbers are staggering as is the abuse and death by the boyfriend while mom sits by.  The punishment for the mother's apathy in most of these cases is lenient.

The other boil is an 81 year old veteran that allowed a caregiver to move into his home with her family.  The place is now "every inch of cabinet cupboard floor wall window is covered with filth and is sticky" with garbage piled high, now condemned, unable to sell.  She somehow gained power of attorney, dropped him off at an assisted living facility, never paid his bill there, he gets evicted.  She takes him to an apartment with only his recliner and small tv, leaves a jar of peanut butter, bread, milk and cereal.  She has control of $5000 a month in pensions and spends it all.  He loses both cars, house, all possessions, lived in the same socks for three weeks since he had no others.  He and his little dogs had no food for a week before the manager happened to realize what was going on and brought food for him, called the police.  He also had open heart surgery and diabetes but she never took him for any appointments including surgical follow-up since leaving the hospital and his health has deteriorated drastically.  He has one stepdaughter but was not allowed to use the phone in his house, and never had another.  He had no money at all, no checking, no cards, no cash, and no medication.  Here's the boiling part.  No charges will be filed.  He is allowed to sue her in civil court for the thousands she stole and all the thousands he owes to the places she dumped him.  She stole from him.  She did not provide the care she was paid for, failed the responsibility of her deceitful power of attorney to handle his bills, left him to starve, failed to provide medical care.  But after all, this piece of garbage may have done a bad thing but hey, it's a gray area.  Since when is stealing and elder abuse not a crime?  Spitting nails right now.  Good thing the cats and husband aren't in range.

Sorry for the rant.  Just tired of the vulnerable and weak being used and abused while our system is more concerned for others.  Quit making excuses for these people.  We're all supposed to have rights but I guess that depends on who gets the most sympathy from our perverted system.   I think I need to look more closely at the judges on the ballot.
 
Again, sorry.  And if anyone is interested I'm using an 8d finishing nail.  The head on the common nail can chip a tooth.

You are too kind. I think people who abuse to the extent you described should be eligible to receive the death penalty. I am very serious. As to the elder abuse, you may want to read up on guardianship fraud. Individuals will register to become certified guardians, give to a judge's campaign fund, get nurses and others to identify elderly with assets, pay the nurses for the information, go to court and get the judge to make them the guardian. There is no due process. They will have access to all the assets, can charge exorbitant fees, ignore the needs of the elderly individual and can even keep relatives from visiting. These are perfect strangers that can come into a home, remove a person and legally take all of their assets. It is a disgrace.

I am right with you Marly, I am a firm believer in "the punishment should fit the crime" If you beat up a baby or elder person the same should happen to you. Put these baby abusers in with the general population of a prison and then let the strongest and largest inmate have go at them for 15 minutes. Then no medical help and do it again! This is how I feel about animal abuse too, my daughter fostered and then adopted a lovely ( but very shy now) pit bull. He was sealed in a box and thrown by the side of the road. Well, put the abuser in a box then throw him by a road too! A few hours later get him out of the box but don't rush. I thought abusing the elderly was a crime, not feeding in certainly abuse. There must be strong punishment for this. Judges must be stop be so lenient!

We have laws that are good, BUT they MUST be enforced. This is probably why I am MORE empathetic towards animals than humanoids. Most are a disgrace to our population. But that is just me. I will remain anonymous on this one as it is not a very good Christian attitude.

Oh yes,I agree wholeheartedly! We had a case here in Illinois a while back where a "mother" stood by and watched as her boyfriend let their car roll down a boat ramp and into the waters of Clinton Lake while her 3 young children were strapped in their cars seats. Of course, they all drowned and when police arrived on the scene she was tearfully telling how she could not get them out even though she wasn't even damp, let alone soaking wet, and the car's antenna was still sticking out of the water, so obviously not very deep. She spent a minimum of time in jail, he of course went up for much longer, but how in God's name could anyone do that? She has been out for some time now and is no doubt pro-creating again, so more boyfriends can kill those kids. I only wish I were on some of these juries. Scum of the earth, but by all means lets continue to support them with our tax dollars and reward their disgusting behavior.

Marley: I outdone like to hang these low life
Nasty pieces of s—-t and make it an event to warn others.
I am saddened that the county did not check on him, due to the fact where he was living they should have alerted the county.
I think you hit the button right, our elected officials need a reLity check and voting them out is where we need to begin, right now Minnesota is doing a lot of law changing, now weather it gets changed is the question.
As for that poor child the mother should be charged with murder for not protecting her child, I have no respect for any female who neglects her child, I think a visit behind the shed is in order for all who abuse.
You were not ranting I feel as you do.

No excuses needed for calling it for what it is. My brothers and I were very lucky when it came to our parents but I cannot believe the abuse that goes on in our society. I thought society as a whole would improve with the years but instead it's gotten worse. I'm not sure if it's the legal system or the Political system. I heard of 14 month old twin girls having broken bones and skull fractures in Jacksonville last year and these two sweet little girls were adopted recently by the nurse that took care of them in ICU. They were some of the lucky ones. There are too many of the ones who aren't and end up dead.

Everyone, young and old, needs an ADVOCATE...not just a "friend," but someone who is tuned into them and ready and willing to be their advocate.

I've been there. It's essential in these times of "wonderful" communication...and little true awareness. Bless you.

It's a sad world we live in - I constantly find myself angry at the news.

Rugs and Pugs said...

So sad. There are many evil people out there who should be punished to the max.

Barb said...

I am so with you. I just learned that a good friend of mine was beaten as a child. WHERE are the mothers!!!!?? How could you stand by and let a man beat your child? I have no idea. Very sad indeed!

Everyone will stand before God and give an account for their life.

Carol said...

It's just shocking how truly evil some people are, isn't it... It simply breaks my heart to read about the veteran and the infant...

Kristen said...

The mothers who "let" their husbands/boyfriends beat the kids most likely grew up in similar circumstances. Abuse is what they know. I don't excuse this woman, but that is most likely the explanation.

Brenda said...

Now MY blood is boiling! Sick and evil...I would also like to see Casey Anthony and OJ Simpson get what they so richly deserve. There is also goodness in the world, maybe not enough of it, but without a doubt you are one of the "good eggs"! Keep the faith.

3millplainrd said...

I agree. These circumstances have happened here in Northern Indiana too, the caregiver stealing, the child abuse. Many children have been hurt or killed by "the boyfriend". I personally know one stupid mother who deliberately got pregnant to trap the guy. When he wouldn't marry her, she had the baby, who is now 18 months old, and the stupid mother moved in with a guy she met at work and knew only one month. She exposed her baby girl to this. The child is beyond vulnerable to this man, his friends, God knows what.

Marilyn said...

Don't even get me started! LOL
I feel exactly the way you do.
It's sad situation.
Here, we have many, many co-sleeping deaths, so sad.
The city even offers free cribs for those who "can't afford" a crib.
My question is...............why have a child id you can't afford a place for it to sleep??? DUH!!
Because it's a tax deduction, and a way of getting fee things.
That's why they don't want to get "fixed".
They just keep having kids.
Makes me so mad after how hard some of us work to provide for our families.

I'm with you. I don't understand how any human can treat another human as the baby and old man were treated. It breaks my heart. Where is the soul of this country that we can read this and not speak out? It is not a good time for this country or world. We need to do the little bits of good we can. If enough of us do kindness and talking and praying maybe we will make progress.

celkalee said...

Thank you,thank you. There must be something in the air. It is so hard to sit here (or where ever) and see, read and hear about these events. Abuse takes so many forms and I cannot imagine how the elder situation you described cannot have a felony component. Someone is afraid of being called racist, bigot or what ever. Something is being hidden and/or someone sheltered to avoid pressing charges. Where is the ACLU now. Does the medical facility have a patient advocate? Disgusting. Husband and I care for his Mother, it is very difficult but we fear placement for many reasons and money is not the issue...safety is. I suspect that she would spiral in placement. She is 95 now. We are doing our best. Our culture honors and worships multi-million dollar sports figures, half naked and vulgar singers while throwing away those who raised us and built this country. Their children are disposable objects that generate entitlement income that support drug use. I'm done.

I share your feelings, Marly. The news is just full of stories every day that almost make you despair of the human race. I think that people who take advantage of or abuse children, the elderly, or animals are the lowest of the low. I do try and remember there are good and kindhearted people in the world -- you just don't hear about them as often.
