Just call me 'Lefty Ruggiero'

I've decided to take my Moussaoui post down because it's been giving me a stroke just knowing it was here. I'll still say I hope he gets shanked in the yard. I'll also leave previous comments up just for posterity. :)

In attempt to avert my own death-by-aneurysm over gross injustice, I’ll share another thrilling anecdote from my life and times. Plus, in case I wind up dead, I want the following posted as a testimony.

Incrediboy is a very affectionate son and insists on giving me a kiss before bedtime. But I do not get just any kiss, mind you. He has taken to putting his hands on each side of my head, and then kissing one cheek, and then the other. Sometimes he’ll even plant one on my forehead, but always he’ll hit the right and left cheek.

We call this the Godfather's kiss. We have no idea where he got this from, as we don’t watch the namesake movies or Goodfellas or Donnie Brasco or the Sopranos or anything like that – at least not when he’s up. Which leads me to wonder, am I slated for a rub out? Am I about to be whacked?

If I suddenly stop posting, you’ll know what happened.

Omigosh! EVERYBODY, go read Rebecca's post - hers is so much better than mine (I'm just too mad right now - I had to just quickly vent and move on before I had a stroke)

After you leave your mark here, of course ;)! XOXO

This is my take on this situation: If in his religion he is rewarded with virgins (or whatever it is) upon his arrival to heaven for doing Allah's work, the death penalty would have been like a reward. That's if I understand this groups particular beliefs.

I'm generally in disagreement with the death penalty anyway, but if the person's beliefs are such that life in prison would be a worse punishment - then why not?

I'm with ya sistah....I'm with ya TOTALLY!!!

It's Just Me said...

I'm with Itchy on this one. I'm generally against the death penalty, but luckily in this case the F*&^er (sorry about the language, but I hard a hard time referring to him in any other way) got the worst possible fate - he doesn't get to be a martyr.

I think the nonsense he spewed about him winning and American losing was pure bravado. He just wants to anger people even more. It's like the kid who got the worst prize and says snottily, "That's the one I wanted anyway."

But even with all that said, it's cases like this that make me seriously question my stance on the death penalty.

Rebecca said...

Hmmmm. I have to say that I don't believe that him being put to death would be allowing him to play martyr. Because clearly, after all - the joke is on him. When he goes, there are no virgins waiting for him. And then where will he be..... ?

speckledpup said...

I keep waffling on this.
I know he would want to die because they are promised such wonderful things in the afterlife for being a martyr.
But my righteous indignation wants to see him publicly caned and then burned a little, and then fried with electric....
but that's just me.

I wish it was a Dallas jury.

I think I missed out on something :( . Well, the kiss story is too cute. It made me giggle.

McSwain said...

Aw man, I missed the first post. But I loved hearing about Incrediboy's kisses.

chesneygirl said...

That's so sweet!!! :)

Ame said...

Okay - I love the comments and the kiss story - will have to read Rebecca's post to try to clew in :)

I have foreign neighbors, and it is their custom to kiss on both cheeks when they greet you - I love their custom! It's a precious way to greet a good friend :) They call me their "sister," and in their country, being called one's sister is a very high compliment. So, I am very fond of being embraces with a kiss on each cheek!!!

btw - I second BWH here!!!

I did not keep track of anything except the final results of the trial and penalty phases. He was not Texas that will tell you why he did not recieve the death penalty. I am ashamed to say that he was tried in my home state Virginia and we are second only to Texas in straping animals like him down, sticking in the needle and pushing the button. I would have thought that we would have given him the death penalty. Some yankees must have snuck into VA and gotten selected for the jury. Sorry about that folks. Death though would have been too good for him. There is no such thing as "general population" in super max prisons or he would find out what pain is really all about.

:D Incrediboy sounds awesome. Affection is so precious when it comes freely from little ones. I do hear that gangs are on the rise, however. He sounds like he's quite young (2 or 3?). But I'd figure out who he's hanging out with. I consider Barney a very suspect character, and those weird little Teletubbies definately have a hidden agenda.

bigwhitehat said...

I was hoping someone else would do it. But not it is clear that I am the one.

Hey Lefty Ruggiero. How are you?
