Bring Back The Death Penalty

Our family had a magnificent day catching up with both the Pepper and Dryiski families, sharing quality time together over a BBQ and a couple of beers.  After unwinding and sitting down for something to eat (other than chocolate) I was horrified with what was unfolding on the evening news. A story that sent a chill down my spine and shook me to the core.  A story that leaves you asking yourself over and over again ‘Why?’

Two young, innocent children were murdered by a 35-year-old male (I won’t call him their father as he doesn’t deserve the title) on a day which is about celebrating life.  It is a tragic event that will forever haunt the children’ family, residents of the Watsonia street, and the general public as a whole.  This is a man who has killed his kids and will now rot in jail.

How can a man kills his two innocent and defenseless children and still have the right to be treated as a ‘human being’ in a Victorian Prison?  The girls have their life taken from them yet this prick will spend the next 25+ years getting three square meals a day, access to the internet, education programs and pay-television, and with good behavior day release and even parole.  Where is the justice?  This is plain wrong?

It is a case like this that outrages parents like me who worship our children.  This man has to pay the ultimate price.  He has to pay with his life.  He has taken the lives of two beautiful girls and yet he gets to live.  The law needs to change for specific circumstances like these.  Ronald Ryan was the last man to be sentenced to death in 1967 in Australia after killing a prison officer.  47 years later the public are demanding that it is reintroduced for clear-cut cases like these, when there is no doubt the accused has committed the crime and it is an open and shut case.  The punishment needs to fit the crime and and that punishment is death.

Happy Easter!

To all The Pep Talks loyal readers and to those who casually drop by for a look, I want to wish you and your family a Happy Easter.

Having four days to think about what is most important in my life and taking time to spend having a great time with my family is something I make sure to do at Easter.  Sometimes you need to take a step back a look at the big picture to realise how lucky you are and what makes life living ins in front of your eyes and not in your bank account.  It is about watching the kids running around on Easter Sunday looking for their eggs and then seeing their eyes like up as they ram the chocolatey goodness into their mouths for the next 12 hours.

Please be safe on the roads over the Easter break and try to relax.  Life is busier than ever so take the time to reflect on what Easter represents and focus on connecting with the ones you love.

RIP Ultimate Warrior

When the Ultimate Warrior died earlier this week there was a feeling that he finally found peace with wrestling and especially the WWE.

The Warrior was the biggest attraction in the then known WWF (he was BIGGER than Hulk Hogan at one stage during the 1980s) and setting the world of professional wrestling alight with his high energy, high impact style, left in a bad way by holding the company to ransom and an 18 year grudge with Vince McMahon began.  When the WWE’s released the “The Self Destruction of The Ultimate Warrior” DVD it increased the level of distaste and hatred towards the Warrior that only the Vince McMahon could impose )and still make a dollar out of it).

Watching Wrestlemania XXX and seeing the Warrior as the headline inductee into the 2014 Hall Of Fame class showed that bridges can be mended and time can heal all wounds. Then again on Monday Night RAW did the Warrior show once again why he is one of the best promo guys in the history of the business with this haunting rant;

To say the Ultimate Warrior was predicting the future may be just a coincidence when you listen to the last minute of his promo but to think he died of a heart attack less than 24 hours later, it does make you think.

Every kid who loved wrestling in the 80s wanted to be either Hulk Hogan or The Ultimate Warrior.  You either wore the yellow and red or face paint and streamers combination.  I was the latter. A piece of my childhood has now left this Earth.

RIP Ultimate Warrior
