How is babby stolen?
 
2017-12-06 12:11:13 PM  
How does this get a sappy tag?  The woman's parents were murdered by the thugs in charge of Argentina and she was sold/given to somebody else to raise.

40 isn't middle ages... it's young, goddamit... I'm not old!

Because she got reunited with her family and everyone is happy about it....?

So her parents die and she finds out that her biological parents are also dead?  Seems depressing.

Who the hell steals a 40 year old woman?

I don't even bother to lock mine up anymore.

So on a historical timeline, pre-middle age would be like, what, the late dark ages?

Thought this was going to be a feel good article until I read this line.

Neither Violeta Ortolani nor Edgardo Garnier, who were 23 and 21 years old at the time of their detention, were ever seen again. They are two of some 30,000 people who disappeared during military rule.

So sad for both her and her biological parents. She was born while her parents were in captivity then given to someone else to raise while her folks got murdered.

What a twisted regime.  Pinochet deserved some form of punishment.

Her DNA matched those of relatives of her parents, who disappeared under Argentina's military rule.

Hey, Eduardo, do you remember that assignment you had 40 years ago?  I believe you told me you took care it 'completely'.  Completely was your word, Eduardo.  Why am I seeing this, Eduardo?  Why is something that you took care of completely now staring back at me on the computer monitor?

No, Eduardo.  I will take care of this.  You have more pressing issues to attend to.  Like trying to control your bleeding. (Bang).  Do not get blood on my carpet, Eduardo.  That will only make me angrier.

He was probably called Pinocchio in school.  That should be enough.  Plus, you know the first time he got wood in home room class?  Never. Lived. It. Down.

Disappeared Dad: Our daughter's on television. Maybe we can unhide ourselves.
Disappeared Mom: Let's wait and see what kind of career she has. If she's in the service industry, we can stay hidden.

You are right.  I mixed up my South American dictators.  So many friends of the CIA in the 70s.

Average life expectancy is 78.74 years.  So 39.37 is middle age.   But according to Geraldo math, 70 is the new 50.

Subby:  When you call a child who was stolen a middle-aged woman, you are saying she's not really important.  After all, what use are middle-aged women? Isn't that how your brain works?  Too late for breeding?

Not a person (to you).  Not valuable (to you). She's endured all sorts of horrors, but she's probably past her sell-by date.

You look at a picture of a child, now a woman, who has been through hell, but you don't care because she is middle-aged.

Don't waste my time coming back here screaming, I'm not misogynistic, you misread it, and you have an agenda.  Your headline reads loud and clear. You are a jerk.

Which is why I believe if you consider yourself a 'left wing', you need to at the minimum stay fairly well armed yourself. If or when shiat goes south the only thing that matters is force and violence. Protest, arbitration, laws etc is meaningless.
Imagined if Northern states thought fighting the South with feather tips and parchment paper were the only weapons they needed or Allies fighting the Nazis and Imperial Japan with protests and strongly worded letters..
