    Re: where's arlen specter's outrage

    You do know that he's no longer a US Senator since the good people of Pennsylvania ousted him in the Democratic primary in 2010.....

    yeah...I know he's retired...doesn't make a damn bit of difference...where is his outrage at Penn State and the entire culture of Pennsylvania white washing,sweeping under the carpet and implicit consent to continue ravaging young lives, putting state residents at risk to one of the most disgusting sexual predator deviants in US history???

    This man attacked the Patriots, the owner, the head coach and by implication, the entire six state population of hard working, God fearing New Englanders....for over TWO years!!!

    and now...today....what is this old turd's swift response????

    Excellent question. I still remember this shriveled up prune's press conference about the Pats' taping where he was referring to wide receivers as "ends." What he actually needed was Dep"ends." What an effing joke.

    I was thinking the same exact thing when the news broke. It's sad that our politicians avoid the real difficult issues facing this country and seem to focus on stuff that doesn't matter but will garner votes. It's a sad day for College Football.

    This is just starting to unfold, before it is done there will be plenty of outrage for many folks..

    Now it is rumored that Sandusky, pimped out some of these boys for some big time benefactors..

    Not sure it is Spectre's fight right now, he has no power..

    I don't care for Specter, but he is no longer in public life, I don't know if anyone has asked him about it, or any other retired politicians for that matter.

    Yup. From the guy who first broke the story.

    Penn State Scandal: Rumor Claims Sandusky “Pimped Out” Boys to Rich Donors


    The whole lot needs to go to a federal "Pound-Me-In-The-A**" prison pronto. In the general population.

    First Sandusky, then the donors, then all the people who collaborated in keeping this quiet.

    This is getting exponentially more serious as the days go on... this will hallmark the way the NCAA Div. 1 does business and will cost the folks from Pennsylvania very large dollars...

    Still cannot comprehend what 10 year olds were doing on campus and alone with this guy.. not going to blame the parents, but did they all think that their 10 year old was going to don the black and white of Penn State..

    Having heard more and more, there is less and less I understand.. it is a f..ing mess.

    I have no problem with Specter not weighing in on this. He is out of politics and went to Penn and Yale.

    He is also 81 or 82 years of age.

    and has cancer......

    Even I will cut Comcast Spector a break on this one, IF what that guy said of D&C this morning has even a modiker of truth to it, Penn State will quickly become State Pen.

    Think about, not much would have caused Joe Pa's downfall at Penn State. he is more revered than even BB! However, there are not many more bad things in this world than child molestation. Jesus this is a terrible story....

    Jim Tressel and OSU are like "Seriously???"



    On the real:


    This is getting worse by the hour....The donors to the fund are the ones being reported as the people who were paying to diddle....frickin sick

    innocent till proven guilty, but it seems as if there is a paper trail, and a lot of powerful people who were 'boosters'


    worst part about all this is the fund is to help foster kids....when itseems to have been doing the xact opposite. Makes me so frickin angry...


    peeps need to GO DOWN! I have no problem locking up Jo-Pa for the rest of his miserable life.

    Worst of all this: It makes you wonder how many of these sub-humans are walking around within ten feet, part of your circle of friends and aquaintances, working at summer camps...JEEZIZ! You can't even send a kid to freakin football camp? WTF! I'm not a fearful person and I try to teach my kids to not be fearful, but it's all I can do to keep trusting people these days. It's so hard to look at people with an open heart any more. THAT's why I hate these perverts so much! Beyond ruining the lives of the poor kids who had to endure this insult and terror, they're ruining our kids' ability to live normal lives.

    GADDAMMIT!

    Please don't bury your head in the sand and think this kind of stuff hasn't been going on for hundreds of years. Penn State tried to cover this up and failed. Disgusting.

    At our church you can't even go near kids until they run a background check. I suspect it is like that in a lot of other places now. I know that in Mass. you have to have a CORI check to even volunteer in a school.
