I had to do it! I had to create a blog so you and I could gripe about all of "The Crap" that we encounter everyday in our lives. Believe me, there is plenty! You can now come to this blog to Gripe because you have the right to do so. Over time, we will Gripe about topics ranging from sports to politics to just about all of the garbage that happens around us. When you Gripe, you can add your name or not. It's your right! You can vent any way you want. Use foul language if you are angry enough to and if you are offended, just Gripe It! Hell, we have been banned from Facebook twice! You can Gripe about people, places and things. The only thing I ask is if you are going to Gripe about someone and you use their name, make sure you have the facts straight. Otherwise they will sue your and my ass off! It's your RIGHT TO GRIPE! You can respond to one of our Gripes or you can lay down your own Gripe. It's easy. To post your own Gripe just email it to email@example.com and we will get it on. You can also become an official "Griper". All you need to do is "Sign Up" and create an account. IT'S FREE! So, don't sit back and take it, just GRIPE IT!

Ciavarella Trial - The Circus Is In Town
With tons of fanfare, the circus entered Scranton yesterday in full color. The TV stations, radio stations and all the newspapers are there. This circus has no elephants, no lions, no tigers, but it does have clowns, acrobats and a ring leader. This circus has no bright colored lights and no cannons but it does have a center stage with performers ready to be on display. This circus is the trial of former Luzerne County Judge Mark Ciavarella. The center ring will be the Federal Courtroom in Scranton with its ringleader U.S. District Judge Edwin Kosik. The clowns will be potential witnesses Michael Conahan, William Sharkey, Robert Powell, Jill Moran, Sandra Brulo and Robert Mericle. Atty. Robert Powell is expected to be the star witness in the trial of the Kids For Cash Master Ciavarella. Right in the middle of the clown chaos will be our beloved Rob Mericle who centers around the honest services fraud and money laundering charges being brought up by the Feds. The acrobats on the high legal wire will be Defense Attorneys Al Flora and William Ruzzo while performing on the judicial trapeze will be Prosecutors Peter Smith and Gordon Zubrod. All 4 of these legal acrobats will be performing without a net.
Just yesterday, a jury of 8 women and 4 men were selected but not without the attorneys almost coming to blows. That, I would pay money to see! Swift intervention by Judge Kosik restored order and the process moved on. It appears that Kosik is going to move this thing on as quickly as possible. I don't know if that's a good thing or a bad thing. I know it makes me a bit nervous. Let's hope mistakes are not made by Judge Kosik which will get Ciavarella off the hook. People will go banana's if this happens especially the parents of the kids Ciavy sent up the river who are attending the circus. These kids were hung out to dry by this bastard and he needs to pay. Hillary Transue, one of Marky Marks and the Fun Bunches victims was sent away for simply posting a fake MySpace page that mocked a school official. WOW, where would I go for The Right To Gripe? Another victim was Trisha Savage who was sent to a wilderness style detention camp for 3 months for having a bowl used to smoke pot. It was her first offense EVER! Judge Ciavy tried and convicted this girl in less than a minute, had her handcuffed and led away much to the terror of her parents. I would have stormed the bench and strangled the bastard. They would have needed the Jaws Of Life to pry my hands from his throat.
Enough of that before I get too worked up! Now that you have a flavor of what went on, you can get a better feel for how important this trial circus really is. This circus will be around for a while, so you can keep your pulse on the clown nation right here on The GRIPE. We will give you a different look at all 3 rings in action!
I was driving past the Hotel Sterling this past week and noticed that someone paved the part of River Street right next to the hotel. This new black top is right where they have it blocked off to traffic. ARE YOU FREAKIN' KIDDING ME! They pave the part of the road where no one can go! They need to pave W. Market St right by the Guard building. I hit that pot hole the other day and lost a nut.

This one is a no brainer. Ariel Castro may actually be the schmuck of the century. If you don't know what he did then you should take the bridge.
WTF! I thought it was a hot blonde chick. NOT!
