Dr.Laura's good boy's "gone bad"

Dr.Laura spends most of her time lecturing people on how to live their lives, and deriding them for their personal decisions. It's how she earns her living; being the overbearing, family values espousing know it all who tells Iraq war wives to "stop whining"and get over it. Well, that and writing books such as the one to the right.

It's always been my understanding that in order to write well about any given subject requires that you have some definite and often extensive knowledge of that subject. Especially when you are giving "life advice" to others as your chosen topic for your books.

Where am I going with this you ask? Well, I have just discovered some information that leaves me with the impression that Dr.Laura knows absolutely nothing about that which she regurgitates over and over on the air and in print. Or maybe she's just a hypocrite.

You see, Ms.Schlessinger has a 21 year-old son, Deryk, who is a paratrooper serving on active duty in Iraq. Since we haven't heard her "whining" about this, you might assume that she's merely following her advice to those other Iraq-vet mothers. Nah. . .I'm pretty sure it's out of embarrassment. Allow me to fill you in regarding the "problem behaviour" of her son:

Deryk Schlessinger is currently under investigation for a graphic personal Web page that one Army official has called "repulsive, at best". The MySpace page, publicly available until it disappeared from the Internet last Friday, included cartoon depictions of rape, murder, torture and child molestation; photographs of soldiers with guns in their mouths; a photograph of a bound and blindfolded detainee captioned "My Sweet Little Habib"; accounts of illicit drug use; and a blog entry headlined by a series of obscenities and racial epithets.

"Yes . . . F---ING Yes!!!"read one blog entry on the Schlessinger site. "I LOVE MY JOB, it takes everything reckless and deviant and heathenistic and just overall bad about me and hyper focuses these traits into my job of running around this horrid place doing nasty things to people that deserve it . . . and some that don't. Godless crazy people like me have become a generation of apathetic killers."

The site indicated Schlessinger's team has survived numerous mortar, rocket and roadside bomb attacks. It also included several graphic cartoons. In one of the stick drawings, a top-hatted man laughs as he rapes a bound and bleeding woman in front of her family. In another depiction, a man forces a boy to perform oral sex at knifepoint as the child's mother pleads for her son's life.

The Salt Lake Tribune learned of the Web page earlier this week from a former schoolmate of Deryk Schlessinger and alerted Army officials about the site last Thursday. Salt lake City is home to
570 KNRS, the home for "Family Values Talk Radio" and "The Dr.Laura Show". At least the newspapers there can still be counted upon to report the truth. Perhaps Dr.Laura should put down her microphone, pick up a telephone, and finally practice some of what she preaches to the great soiled masses. But, then again, had she already been living the lifestyle she has dictated to others all of these years. . .we might not be discussing such disturbing behavior from her son today.

Ah yes, Dr. Laura and family values. I received an email pointing me to a web site that showed how much the "good" doctor cares about family values. Just Click Here. Uh, don't click if you have sensitive sensibilities.

Pam - They're all cast from the same mold it would seem!

Robert - I've seen those before. Thanks for burning my retinas once more! Me wonders if Deryk was the photographer. . .? Zoinks!

Did any of you even read the Salt Lake Tribune article? It's a lot more "benign" than your description would suggest.
