I pray that I’m wrong….

…I really do. I hope that I’m concerned over nothing but I can’t see this not going bad at some point.

I really don’t understand the mindset of these people; those are undomesticated animals that they are training to hunt — while raising them in the house with their children. I hope and pray that nothing bad ever happens but I certainly won’t be surprised if it does.

I’m not going to say “There should be a law”; people should be allowed to put themselves and their children in jeopardy if they choose. Just as I’m allowed to think they are all kinds of dumb for doing so.

Please join the discussion.

I should feel sorry for them…

A bumbling TSA agent “playing around” with a pepper-spray container at Kennedy Airport fired the caustic liquid at five fellow screeners yesterday, sending all six to the hospital, a source told The Post.

The agent, Chris Yves Dabel, discovered the device at the Terminal 2 security checkpoint and tried to determine if it was real, a source told The Post.

He told Port Authority cops that he “found the canister on the floor and thought it was a laser pointer.”

“They were playing around with it,” said one Kennedy Airport official.

Way to go there Security Expert !!! I’m glad they were not permanently harmed but even a TSA employee should know not to play around with dangerous items. And the idea of pointing a laser at his fellow employees’ faces: real brilliant! Not very sympathetic to their suffering.

The screener sprayed five other TSA agents around him, sending all six to Jamaica Hospital and halting security checks at Kennedy for at least 15 minutes, police said.

Now that I can feel sorry for — poor people at the airport had to be delayed by 15 minutes due to this buffoon’s actions.

 

Good Dog, Extra Biscuits For You

FORT WORTH _ A suspected mail thief was hospitalized this morning after she was attacked by a pit bull, police said.

A woman called 911 shortly after 9:30 a.m. this morning, reporting that she had just seen an unknown woman come from her house in the 3600 block of James Avenue, according to police call details.

The caller told police that the woman had then gone into the neighbor’s backyard and hid in their dog house.

Sharron Neal, a police spokeswoman, said suspected thief was then attacked by a pit bull.

Fortunately she will survive (with only ‘moderate’ injuries) and see the error of her ways but don’t hold your breathe.

In the mean time, I bet that dog will be dining on steak and bacon several times in the near future.

EWW! Please Stop Oversharing !

Sometimes it doesn’t pay to read the news

A grandmother has been charged with drug smuggling after police found 55 rocks of crack hidden in her privates.

Berenice Fernandes, 74, claimed she knew nothing about the stash of drugs and said her granddaughter must have hidden them on her while she was sleeping.

Two thoughts – 1st, not likely lady. I hope you don’t expect us to take that excuse serious.

2nd, if it is true; why in the world would you share that with the world? Think about what that means for just one minute  then please promise to never talk about it again.

 

 

 

What We Have Here…

is not a failure to communicate but to Educate.

During Stephen Colbert’s “Better Know A District” segment, the comedian-cum-political commentator interviewed U.S. Congresswoman Yvette Clarke, who represents New York’s 11th District. The results were both humorous and painfully awkward, as the Democratic politician took a hypothetical trip back in time with Colbert, only to claim slavery would still have existed in New York in 1898.

“If you could get in a time machine and go back to 1898, what would you say to those Brooklynites?” Colbert asked in the segment.

“I would say to them, ‘Set me free,’” Clarke responded.

Gamely pressing on, Colbert inquired from what would the Congresswoman wish to be free from. “Slavery,” Clarke replied.

“Slavery. Really? I didn’t realize there was slavery in Brooklyn in 1898,” Colbert said, perhaps in an ultimately unsuccessful attempt to give the native Brooklyner a do-over.

“I’m pretty sure there was,” Clarke responded.

“It sounds like a horrible part of the United States that kept slavery going until 1898,” Colbert commented, struggling to keep a straight face.

“Who would be enslaving you in 1898 in New York?” Colbert pressed. According to Clarke, none other than the Dutch.

Wonder where she learned that bit.

United States Representative Yvette D. Clarke is a Brooklyn native whose roots are firmly planted in her Jamaican heritage.  A product of the New York City Public School System, Rep. Clarke received a scholarship to Oberlin College and was a recipient of the prestigious APPAH/Sloan Fellowship in Public Policy and Policy Analysis.

Wonder if she can get her money back or more likely if  Oberlin College will sue to make her stop using their name.

I hope she doesn’t sit on any important committees and is relegated to the “Committee to Insure Jelly Bean Jar Contests are fair”.

Committee assignments

  • Committee on Homeland Security
    • Subcommittee on Cybersecurity, Infrastructure Protection, and Security Technologies (Ranking Member)
    • Subcommittee on Oversight, Investigations, and Management
  • Committee on Small Business
    • Subcommittee on Economic Growth, Tax and Capital Access
    • Subcommittee on Contracting and Workforce


Uh Oh — that might explain a lot. I struggled to understand why a person this dense would be elected. That is until I read this:

As a testament to what Representative Clarke has accomplished in her first term, she received an “A” rating from the Drum Major Institute, TheMiddleClass.org, and 100% ratings by Peace Action, The Brady Campaign and the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU).

and this

An unwavering champion for her native Brooklyn, she has worked with non-profit organizations, local community groups and appropriators to secure millions of dollars in essential federal support for the district.  As a result, major institutions received funds, including the Brooklyn Academy of Music, the Brooklyn Botanic Garden, the Brooklyn Public Library, the Brooklyn Children’s Museum, the Prospect Park Alliance and the New York State Department of Transportation (DOT)

Isn’t it time to stop this nonsense? Turn off the free flow of other people’s money via the force of the federal government.  I simply do not understand why a single federal tax dollar should go to the Brooklyn Botanic Gard or Academy of Music.  If we don’t do it, I want to get in on the act — I hear by form the Bunker BS Home for Unwanted, Underappreciated, Unloved and Unused Firearms. With just a grant of say $100K, I promise to buy up those guns that are going under appreciated by other people. What is scary is my idea is not as ridiculous as some of the things paid for by our Federal Representatives.

And I really wish we could just blame this on one person Ms Clarke but I can’t. We, the voters, have put her or people like her in office time and time again. I hear people talking about not voting in the election and I shake my head. I used to be that way until I started seeing more and more how the people I didn’t vote for was taking the country down. We may still fail but it won’t be because I didn’t try.

The elections are coming up soon. There isn’t much difference between the candidates at the national level but we can make a huge difference at the local level. I think we really need to turn out this election and remind the politicians who they work for.

Anyone Doing “Common Sense” Transplant Surgery?

Because if you are, there is a North Texas resident in dire need of some.

Jennelle Carrillo, who lives in Cleburne, is suing the Cowboys and team owner Jerry Jones over third-degree burns she suffered on her buttocks after sitting on a black marble bench at Cowboys Stadium two years ago while waiting for the debut Blue & Silver scrimmage.

It took me reading through the article to realize that Ms. Carrillo is desperate need of the transplant.

“No signs were posted at or near the bench warning that it was too hot to sit on nor was the bench roped off to prevent persons from sitting on it,” the lawsuit states.

Wash said he didn’t know how long Carrillo sat on the bench, but when she got up to use the restroom, she discovered her burns. She left the stadium and went to Huguley Memorial Medical Center, where she was examined. At first, doctors told her she had first-degree burns.

Imagine that; an organization not telling people not to sit on benches it provides. Maybe they expect people to make that decision themselves. And how long do you have to sit on a hot object before you realize it is hot? Obviously in Ms. Carrillo’s case it took a while; long enough that she realized she had to use the facilities. (Now I don’t know about you but that is not an action I put off for a long time — especially in a stadium situation where the lines can get long in a hurry).

This next part is another clue that Ms. Carrillo needs help in the basic aspects of living

Several days later, Carrillo felt dizzy and was in a lot of pain. She said she returned to Huguley and another doctor told her she had third-degree burns. She was taken to Parkland Memorial Hospital in Dallas, where she spent about a week undergoing skin grafts, Wash said.

Several Days?!?!?!?! Really, it took you several days to realize that blisters and open sores were forming on your posterior enough to make you feel dizzy ! Did you get distracted by the person whispering in your ear “Breathe In, Breathe Out”?

I do know that burns can worsen over time but I question if they can go from 1st degree to 3rd in a couple of days in a case like this. If I was a little more suspicious, I would think that someone is just looking for a payout from an organization with deep pockets. Maybe one of the medical types can jump with some insight on this.

But I saved the most important and damning bit of evidence for last.

Steve Fano, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service in Fort Worth, said the high temperature Aug. 10, 2010, the day she was allegedly injured, was 101 degrees. Coincidentally, that August was the ninth-hottest August on record, he said.

That’s right, our law-suit happy camper decided to sit on a black marble bench that was in the sun on a day where the temperature was over 100 Degrees !!! And had been so hot temperatures weren’t dropping lower then 85 or 90 degrees at night.

On this blog, I try not to make fun of the misfortune of others. I really do but I make exceptions when the people bring it upon themselves.  This may be a little harsh but if someone is so mentally incapable of realizing that black stone benches can be hot enough to burn in August; that person doesn’t need a lawsuit, she needs a tender to watch her 24/7.

So Wrong

but compared to what many kids are up to it is a relatively harmless prank.

 

Some say it is good luck, but in this case fortune played no part in what happened to a crowd of innocent Americans during their day out at the beach.

This video shows a group of boys pulling a prank involving a flock of hungry seagulls, crisps – and laxatives.

Watch the video at your own risk (less risk then the beach goers though).

 

Is this even against the law? Should there be law ?

Let’s not go there and hope their parents just tan their hides. Then enroll in something that will give them an outlet for their creativity.
