Bad Credit + GPS Tracking = "Vicious Predator" Arrested

Whether or not you like GPS tracking by car dealerships or banks, this time it turned out well...

From NBC New York:
Less than 72 hours after being violently snatched off a Philadelphia street as she walked home from visiting her godson, Carlesha Freeland-Gaither has been rescued from the "vicious predator" police say kidnapped her.

Now as she recovers from the attack that was caught on video, the focus moves onto her alleged abductor who authorities have linked to a similar crime against a teenage girl.

"I’m taking my baby home. Thank you," Keisha Gaither, the woman's overjoyed mother, told the public at a news conference Wednesday night. Her family erupted into applause as the woman spoke.

The 22-year-old was rescued from the car of her alleged kidnapper, 37-year-old Delvin Barnes, in a Jessup, Maryland parking lot Wednesday afternoon, officials said. She suffered some injuries and was taken to a nearby hospital in Columbia, Maryland for treatment, police said. She was listed in good condition and expected to recover. The family drove to the hospital Wednesday night. Early Thursday, shortly after 1 a.m., Carlesha and her family left the hospital.

“It’s very special for all of us. You hope, you hope, you hope, but you don't really know until you're actually able to get her, and make sure she's OK. So it's very important that this has a happy ending," Philadelphia Police Commissioner Charles Ramsey said.

Agents moved in quickly after receiving a tip from the ATF Office in Richmond, Virginia that Barnes may be the suspect after seeing his picture in news reports, Philadelphia detectives said.

They began tracking his gray Ford Taurus through a GPS device placed inside the vehicle by the car dealership where it was purchased, detectives said. The GPS was installed because Barnes had poor credit, officials said.

Agents honed in on his location, in a shopping center parking lot, and moved in to strike.

"He was more surprised than anything," ATF agent Tim Jones said recounting the arrest.

Barnes and the victim were in the backseat of the car when agents arrived, but he quickly jumped into the driver's seat to try and flee, Jones said. Agents blocked his way and took him into custody.

I Thought We Didn't Have Soldiers On The Ground In Iraq...?

This blog post began with one tweet from a Twitter account that belongs to ISIS...or so I heard here: "ISIS Posts Photos of Dead Female Peshmerga Soldiers – Obama Attends Fundraiser".

Here is an embedded tweet that belongs to the ISIS account to which I am referencing:

Here is a screen shot of the above tweet in case it disappears from Twitter (Ha!):

If the USA doesn't have soldiers in Iraq, how would it be possible for any muslim over there (er..."in Iraq & Sham") to give them a cup of water?

Message to "ISIS", "ISIL", "IS"...(btw, no one here in the USA knows 1/3 of your names for're cool...continue as you are):
We're only bombing you from aeroplanes. Calm yer asses.
Bammy ain't comin' fer ya. He ain't doin' it now and he ain't doin' it ever.

Word to the wise: Do all yer sh*t before another Reagan is elected.

At that time, you will be ended. But, with you bein' so smart and all, you already know that. You have another 832 days to continue your genocide on the civilized, non-barbarian, non-stone age world, non-bloody-headed-beheading world. God, you losers are sloppy. I've watched and/or recorded 100's of "beheading videos" (for the record) and, man, you dips just have no clue how to go about it. May I suggest that you NOT shave the hair on the heads of those whom you choose to separate from their bodies? Just a thought. Damn, I hope it pisses you off that some dumb dyke from the midwest could chop-off a head quicker and more efficiently than you, you worthless excuse for executioners. (May allah rot in pig poo....akbar...or something like that.)

Hey, my lovers, don't go catchin' the Ebola in the meantime,'d be much better if you had a 2-year cancer that slowly eats away at your insides...with you getting sicker and sicker and weaker and weaker with every "treatment".

If the USA doesn't elect another Reagan in 2016, whom you KNOW will END you, you will deserve to take over the world.

The bitch that is "political correctness" shall die along with you...if that whore doesn't kill the USA first.
(Although, this whore is evil, she's not quite as devastatingly evil and ruthlessly bloodthirsty as you. I wish a quick death for this bitch. May she rot in hell, right underneath a steaming pool of your wretched, disemboweled carcasses.)


Can I claim "poetic license" and call all of the above a "haiku"?

Aw, poo. I suppose not. Meh...


I sleep with a gun.

If MLB Speeds Up Game Play Does That Mean There Will Be Less "Ball Play"?

This is my blog...I keep trying to remind myself that I CAN make ANY kind of posts to it that I'd like. They don't ALL have to relate to "news". This morning, that's exactly what I'm doing.

So, The Blaze posted this story last night: "Major League Baseball Announced It Will Begin Testing These Six New Rules — and Some Fans Aren’t Too Happy".

I was going to post a comment on The Blaze. Instead, I'm posting it here. About as many people will interact with what I have to say here as they are allowed to do on The Blaze. In other words: No one will interact with me. (If The Blaze would put DISQUS comments on their site then their commenters could interact. But they don't, so we can't. Although, given the low-brow mentality of many of the commenters there, I'm probably happiest as it is now - with NO interaction with commenters on The Blaze.)

Oh yeah...back to baseball...

I'd love to be interested in watching baseball again. It would help if the games weren't 3-4 hours long and "DVR unfriendly". I can watch an entire 3 1/2-4 hr football game in 40 minutes on my DVR (there are REGULARLY 20-30 seconds in between each and every 4-6 second play). I regularly record and watch at least 12 football games each weekend - 6 college games on Saturday and 6 NFL games on Sunday - sometimes more, sometimes less, depending on scheduling.

I love baseball...but, damn, I haven't even bothered to record a regular season game for about 5 years now. I got sick of seeing all of all the spitting and "scratching" in between plays. SPEEDING UP THE GAME OF BASEBALL SOUNDS GREAT TO ME! More game play = less spitting and "ball play" by the players. On camera, that is. They'll still do it, I just won't have to see it in between the plays on the field. (I dare you to write this and avoid all the double entendres.)

If they'd put some sort of uniform time limit on the action between plays during MLB games, I wouldn't be so adverse to watching all the spitting and "ball play" mean "game play". I could eliminate it by jumping ahead on my DVR. As it is now, I could go to a local construction site and watch classier men behaving properly in public.

As a female, I MUST ASK any male readers:
What the HELL is going on down there that causes baseball players to CONSTANTLY have to "lift up" and/or "readjust" their genitals? My goodness...NFL players don't do that (constantly, like MLB players do). UFC fighters don't do that (unless they get cracked in the nuts - because we all know that rattling around an "injured" part of your body ALWAYS makes it feel better...whatever).

What the hell is it about standing on a field for 3-4 hours that causes a guy to feel the need to "address" the position of his balls every time he is on camera? I'm being totally serious here...I asked my dad a similar question one time and he really didn't appreciate it.

Seriously though, I want to know...what's the problem down there?

Why can't MLB players keep their hands off their junk?

Is this a problem that baby powder could fix?

If any MAN chooses to reply with a rational reason, thank you. For any "new male tweeners" that will be pissed off that I asked, I'll just block you and remove your nasty comment...don't waste your time leaving a comment. Even though I'm a gay female, I DO know the difference between a "man" and a "male"...probably better so than do most of the straight women I know who are in relationships with "males" (not "men"). (Which, OK, now I've pissed all of them off too. Hey, these "non-news" posts sure are fun, aren't they?)

Yes. They can be.

YouTube Channel Used By ISIS Still Online - UPDATE: ***VIDEO STILL ON YOUTUBE***

This morning ISIS released a 4th video. No one lost their life in this video and there was no gore in it. The video was originally uploaded to YouTube on this channel. That 4th video that was posted by ISIS this morning was removed from YouTube within a couple of hours. However, the YouTube channel that hosted that video remains on YouTube...even though it has what appear to me to be 2 other ISIS propaganda videos on it.

(Go HERE to read more about the contents of today's video.)

If YouTube is removing the ISIS videos because they "promote terrorism", fine. If YouTube is removing the ISIS videos because they're gross, fine. But, at least be consistent, YouTube. There is zero "gore" in today's video and the two videos that remain (links below) on that YouTube channel from which you deleted the "4th video" released this morning, certainly promote terrorism...because they promote ISIS.

Do I speak Arabic? (Or whatever language they're speaking.) No. Watch the videos for yourself and tell me they do NOT "promote ISIS".

Video #1
Video #2

That YouTube channel should be knocked off of YouTube. And so should the hundreds (or thousands?) of other YouTube channels that promote terrorism. That is, IF YouTube's goal is to not allow terrorists to promote terrorism on their website. If that isn't YouTube's goal and their goal is to keep more Americans ignorant to the truth, then, leave all the terrorist channels and all of the videos they post online. At least that way we have some chance at knowing what and who the hell it is we're dealing with. Show some consistency, please.

I think all of the videos should remain easily accessible. I don't think any of them should be removed. I think all Americans and all Westerners should have the opportunity to view all of them. How can you know the truth unless you see it for yourself?

Just for the record, this is the url of the "4th video" (as seen in the picture at the top of this post) that was removed this morning by YouTube:

11:46PM CST

The "#4 video", as I've referenced it above, that was released this morning by ISIS this morning was deleted from the original YouTube account to which it was uploaded. However, the video still remains here on YouTube. I found this video earlier this morning shortly after the original had been removed. I fully expected this video to also be removed by YouTube by now. I'm guessing they have the cash to hire people who can translate the videos uploaded to their site. Funny how I, an English-only speaking dog groomer/part-time blogger/conservative hack, found the damn thing. Here is the title of the video as it appears on YouTube: تنظيم داعش ينشر تسجيلاً يظهر فيه الصحافي البريطاني المختطف "كانتلي " - I think it's probably pretty clear to all of you that I didn't write that. ;)

LaSean McCoy's 20-cent Tip Receipt - Ebay Bidding at $99,900 - You Read That Right

Richie Rich NFL football player LaSean McCoy of the Philadelphia Eagles goes into a burger joint in Philly and spends $61.56. He leaves a 20-cent tip "to make a statement" and a picture of his credit card receipt goes viral online. Someone at the burger joint decides to sell the receipt on eBay. 44 different bidders make 134 bids. The price of that receipt at auction on eBay now sits at $99,900.00. And, there are still 2 days left in the auction.


McCoy says he received crappy service and that's why he left the pathetic tip. Workers at the restaurant say that McCoy and his friends were insulting and disrespectful from the moment they sat down.


Bids had reached $100K but two different people who made those bids retracted them.


Here's the entire bidding history as of right now. The auction ends on September 20th...


The bidding began in a sane manner...and, then it just got nuts. Wouldn't it be nice to have that kind of money? I can think of so many better things to do with that kind of cash...oh well.

According to the seller's description on eBay the money received from this auction will be divided among all the staff at the burger joint:
The item up for Auction is the controversial $0.20 Receipt for Philadelphia Eagles running back LeSean "Shady" McCoy's meal at Philadelphia Restaurant, PYT.

The aforementioned receipt has caused quite the media buzz amongst social media/news networks/celebrities along with many others.

Not only do you get to keep a memento of weird current events/social media history but you also get an autograph from incredibly talented Philadelphia Eagles running back, LeSean McCoy!!!

As to how I came into possession of this item:

My good friend Tommy Up has left this receipt in my possession in order to ensure something positive comes out of this somewhat negative action that has recently taken place.

With your help we'll be able to leave the largest tip possible to all PYT employees for their hard work and dedication.

The only thing we would like to ask on your end is for the winner to write a personalized note or card to the PYT staff, which we give to the staff along with the winning bid/tip. (We want to give credit where credit is due)

Happy Bidding!!!

I don't know how many are employed at the burger joint...but, I'm guessing this will be the largest "tip" all of them will ever receive. Good job, LaSean. Hope you feel like you proved your point...raking-in $45 million+ and not even having the decency to leave a crappy $5.00 tip. You sure showed them! Ha.

I've worked in food service before (and may again in the future). Non-tippers and low-tippers really chap my ass, and as far as I'm concerned, they should never seek the "service" of ANYONE...EVER. In my experience, the "non-tipping class" is so full of themselves that it is not possible to give them the type of service to which they feel they are entitled...yet, they all use "poor service" as a reason for their not tipping. As if their mere presence on earth is the only needed qualifier for having someone come to their table to kiss their ass.

And, those of you who say you CAN'T AFFORD to tip: If you can't afford to tip, you can't afford to eat out. Period. Go to the grocery store and buy TRIPLE the amount of food you could buy for the same amount in ANY low-priced restaurant. Don't expect someone who works just as hard, if not harder, than you do to "serve" you for no tip simply because you opened a door and sat at a table.

The View Replaces One Whore With Another (Nicolle Wallace)

4 whores in a box.
So, Jenny McCarthy (the "whore'" I referenced in the title) and Sherri Shepard are being replaced on The View. I really don't personally know anyone who cares about this. I do, however, know a few people who may care about the GOPe's (GOP establishment's) whore, also known as Nicolle (her name *has* to be spelled with 2 "l's", doesn't it?) Wallace, being selected to "speak for Conservatives" on The View. You see, Nicolle Wallace is a slut of the political kind...she sold her soul to the "I-love-to-hate-crowd" (also known as "liberals" - er...the "GOPe" - er, "progressives" - all one in the same) to gain points with the kind of people who actually enjoy watching shows like The View.

Anytime I've ever watched The View (about 15 times in it's 17-year history) I've most often found it to be a rumor-mill-cesspool of unequaled proportions on daytime television...and, that was when Barbara Walters (a "real news person" - a title she relinquished YEARS AGO) still had anything to do with the show.

Don't blame poor little Nicolle. She just wants to be loved...and, she's such a whore, she doesn't care from where she receives it. I just hope the price The View is paying Nicolle for this legal prostitution is worth the price of the tiny shred of what may *possibly* have still existed of Nicolle's soul.

Watch this 96-second clip and TRY NOT to puke while doing so:

NICOLLE IS A LIAR, by the way. A tiny bit of the proof of my statement is below.

In the clip above from The View, Nicolle said this about her "relationship" with Palin:
"But our relationship erupted and exploded and it was irreparably damaged after the Katie Couric interview when she thought I set her up for failure and I felt like the questions were fair. She asked her what she read, you know, that was sort of the end of the end. "

The Palin/Couric interview aired on September 24, 2008.

34 days AFTER the Palin/Couric interview...October 28, 2008:
Nicolle Wallace told The Daily Beast about Governor Sarah Palin:
"Obviously I think she’ll be the next vice president."

"...she’ll be one of the leaders of our party. I think it’s great for the Republican Party to put a woman front and center."

"She’s just very, very engaging and she’s very normal and down to earth and very quick and smart, and she’s the real deal."

"Look, in Sarah Palin’s case, first [the media complained] she didn’t give interviews and then the interviews she did were all wrong. There’s a standard applied to her that I don’t see applied to Joe Biden. First, she’s not available, then she starts talking to her press corps, which I think is great. I think when it’s a woman, there are all sorts of connotations to, you know, attacking, or for being a diva. That attack, first of all is not true. And second, you know, if a man did the same thing, what would he be called, independent?..."

And this, which is probably the most truthful thing a political whore could admit:
"Campaigns bring out the warriors in everybody. The very nature of debate, the reason it makes good live television is it’s two mother lions defending their cubs. But as soon as the campaign is over, everything changes."

Which are you, Nicolle?
A bought-and-paid-for campaign whore?
Or a bought-and-paid-for TV whore?

I don't need a phony conservative like you telling me "the Conservative answer" to my own questions on a mind-numbing time-waster like The View.

You've already proven to me and thousands of others that you're a whore.

Which kind you are really doesn't matter to me.

"Palin Family Brawl" - I SOOOOOOOO Want This Story To Be TRUE!!!

Oh, YES! I've read the latest stupid stories about the Palin family supposedly being "involved in a brawl" from the political ne'er do wells over at the Immoral Minority and Political Gates (& I'm NOT linking to them...let THEM link to ME - as they've done in the past)...LOL!!! I love a good "tramp" story, just like they do. Hell, I'VE BEEN IN THE MIDDLE of a good "tramp" story (as I call them)...let me tell you about it:

I was pissed off & had drank 3 beers & about 1/2 of a butterscotch schnapps after the 2012 election and I recorded a video that I KNEW WOULD GO VIRAL AS I WAS RECORDING IT...and, I was right...and EVERY liberal/hate blog on the planet called me a "drunk conservative" because I showed ONE of the beers that I was drinking and mentioned the ONE butterscotch schnapps that I also had in a glass at the time. Can't you just FEEL them all getting "giddy" as you're reading this? I can feel it as I'm writing it. Keep reading...

Although, they'll try to post my "viral video" in their feeble effort to discredit me. Well, you know what? FUCK THEM!!! I'll post it FOR THEM. I'd just gotten off of the phone with my dad and we were BOTH PISSED OFF and had been fueling each others' mood for about the previous 20 minutes! That being said, I guess I can hold my alcohol more than most of the paranoid schizos in the universe who freak out at that possibility of someone being able to convey a coherent thought past 4 drinks. What the hell are they drinking? And, why do they continue to drink it? You ALL had better STOP DRINKING if you do not have the ability to think coherently, as I proved I can, past 3+ drinks.

Anywho...back to the Palins:
The "Palin family" was allegedly "involved in a brawl" at someone's house party in Wasilla? Good!!!!!!!

The Palin family should be on TEAR throughout the ENTIRE UNITED STATES and I know MANY PEOPLE THAT WOULD JOIN-IN ON THEIR ASS-KICKING TOUR!!! I'm not just talking about the local "Bubba" in your town or in mine...I'm talking about members of the Army...Navy...Air well as various Special Ops folks that would LOVE to have a moment with you "I hate the Palins" assholes. It would truly be a reckoning...for you. And, dammit, it would be another "viral" moment for my NEW YouTube channel...if ONLY I ever get the chance to shoot that me, I'll be rolling...& uploading.

I HOPE the Palins were involved in ANOTHER fight to protect their good name. And, you know what else? It won't matter ONE FUCK who doesn't like it!!! You freaky freaks who "like" stories like this, you'll be spreading this story whether it's true or not until the end of your miserable lives. It's really sad you can't find anything better to do with your time. I know Sarah will...


Oh...and, this is my video...that I recorded when was less than 4 drinks a long night that I ain't tellin' you about...JUST LIKE YOU WON'T TELL ME ABOUT ALL OF YOUR LONG NIGHTS YOU FUCKING HYPOCRITES!

Shut the fuck up about the Palins. All of you who constantly profess your HATRED of the Palins, we who love them all KNOW that you ALL wish you WERE one of them. I'm glad you're not. And, so are they.

(Although, I know they're glad I'm not, too. Good on them.)

A Few Of My Favorite Joan Rivers Clips (VIDEO)

Whether you were a fan of Joan Rivers or not, her career spanned 5 decades. Will you have a longer career than her? The vast majority of people won't. Will you be as active at age 81 as Joan was? The vast majority of people aren't. Joan's career was longer than my life so far. As a little kid I remember sneaking through my parents room to get closer to the living room TV (when I was supposed to be in bed) so that I could hear her guest hosting on The Tonight Show. My parents didn't want me hearing her...which is probably why I wanted so desperately to hear her.

If you are not a fan of political correctness, you should have been a fan of Joan's. She attacked everyone. There were absolutely times when Joan would say things I didn't like. Although, there were also many times when Joan's words bit so hard on people I disliked that I found it simple to forgive her past "offenses". Joan was an equal opportunity offender...a trait that is lacking in everyone today.

I must admit that I also quite enjoyed the fact that she swore in her private act...just because that, too, pisses so many people off. As if hearing a "bad word" from a female comedian was the worst thing to ever happen to them. Pfft.

Rather than immersing myself in more depressing and maddening news headlines for tonight, I thought I'd watch some Joan Rivers clips on YouTube. I've already watched so many great ones tonight that I thought I'd go ahead and post some of them here...some for you...and some for me.

I hope all of these clips and full-length shows will stay available on YouTube forever. Although, that isn't very likely. Watch them now, while they're still available.


If I ever knew in the past that Joan Rivers was a guest on the Carol Burnett Show, I'd forgotten all about it. Even though, as a small child I was allowed to watch The Carol Burnett Show. Joan appears at 2:10 into this video and performs about 7-minutes of stand-up on Carol's show:

This clip is from "Joan & Melissa - Joan knows best?" that aired on WEtv. ("Joan knows best?" was one of my "guilty pleasures". I loved that show.) This clip is from 2012. I remember watching this scene and I KNEW it was a total ruse by Rivers and Burnett...although, several stupid "journalists" didn't know it was a ruse and actually wrote stories about the "feud" between Joan & Carol. Classic.

I'm almost certain that this is the last time Joan & Johnny appeared together on the Tonight Show. This clip is from 1986. It was in 1986 that Joan's late night show "The Late Show with Joan Rivers" premiered on FOX. When Joan called Johnny to tell him about her new show, he hung up on her...twice. Joan & Johnny never spoke again. I still love Johnny Carson but, I think that was a childish and, eventually, cruel move on his part. As a side note, I'm writing this blog post from Johnny's "hometown" of Norfolk, NE and I drive by Johnny's "boyhood home" many times throughout the course of a year. (It's on a main thoroughfare in town...I'm not stalking his old house.)

Once again...I don't remember Joan on The Carol Burnett Show. This is the complete show. Vincent Price is another guest-star on this show.

This is a practical joke that Johnny Carson played on Joan where he tricked her into believing that she was meeting Margaret Thatcher. According to Johnny, at this time in their relationship Joan and Johnny "had known each other for about 17 years". Reagan was president. Times were good in the USA.

Here is a 50-minute "head-shrinking" interview with New Zealand clinical psychologist Dr. Pamela Connolly that was uploaded to YouTube in June of 2012. It is described as "Funny, fascinating, intriguing & sometimes sad. If you love Joan, it's all here." (I have not yet watched this episode, therefore, I have nothing more to add. I'll watch it when I'm finished writing this post.)

(UPDATE: Now that I've watched this...holy cow...I don't think you'll find much humor in it. At least, I didn't. However, there is some. This was filmed when Joan was 74-years-old and I found this to be a very raw and in-depth interview...throughout. I truly got the feeling I was sitting-in on a therapy session. I'm not really comfortable with that. But, that's my problem. I'd certainly recommend this video to anyone who would like to get the feeling that they "know" Joan better. I saw a lot of similarities between her and I. That's what made me uncomfortable. Now, to cheer up, I'm going to go watch this.)

And, finally, I'll include this episode of Joan's web series called "In Bed With Joan" which was shot from a small room in Melissa's house. (If you don't know, Melissa is Joan's daughter.) Due to the size, cost (free), and set-up of the room, all of the guests "come out of the closet" (literally) upon introduction. This is probably the most "clean" episode I've seen of this show (although, I've not seen ALL episodes of the show...yet). I won't say that this is my favorite episode of the show...but, for my "audience", it's probably the most "safe" episode I could post. This episode was uploaded to YouTube one month ago (August 5, 2014).

If you'd like to see more clips of Joan Rivers go to YouTube and search her name. There are thousands of other clips available.

Thank you for a lifetime of laughs, Joan. Your humor has been a part of my life...and I'll miss your humor for the remainder of it. May you "rest in laughter".

Twitter Snobs Whine About Facebook Being Down

Facebook is down right now was down for about 15 minutes or so and more than a few Twitters users are were having a snit fit about Facebook users checking to see if other people were having trouble accessing Facebook. They're not all snobs...some of them look like they're trying really, really hard to be comedians. I wonder where they go when Twitter goes down? I usually go to to check if a website I use is down but, that isn't wasn't even working...that's why I went to Twitter, you snobs.

I was finally able to access the DownRightNow website...

Too bad I couldn't access DownRightNow earlier, that would have prevented the formation of this blog post.

Since Facebook is back up and running, I'm going to go make fun of Twitter users now.

Can Somebody PLEASE Define "JUSTICE" For Me? (Re: Mike Brown, Ferguson, MO)

Ferguson, MO - People marching in the streets chanting "No justice! No peace!" . What exactly does that mean? Yeah, yeah, I know it's from the "Civil Rights era" (prior to my birth). But, what the hell does it mean today?

I'll tell you what I think it means to the people who chant it today in Ferguson, Missouri:
If officer Darren Wilson isn't convicted of murdering Mike Brown there will be no "justice".

But, what if Officer Wilson isn't charged with any crime?

Here's the Merriam-Webster definition of justice:
jus·tice noun \ˈjəs-təs\
the process or result of using laws to fairly judge and punish crimes and criminals

While this case is being adjudicated via the internet (mostly via YouTube videos), I'm believing that, not only will there be no conviction of Officer Darren Wilson, he won't even be indicted (by anyone who possesses the ability to look at this case rationally, that is). It may turn out, as in the George Zimmerman case, that the public pressure becomes too great for some weak-kneed public servant that criminal charges are eventually filed, but, we've all seen before, via the Zimmerman prosecution, how that turns out.

Charges should have never been filed against George Zimmerman because, as the prosecutors knew (prior to succumbing to public pressure), they didn't have enough evidence for a conviction. Yet, they put the nation (and the local taxpayers) through a public dog-and-pony show so some people could feel better about their lives. I suppose that is exactly where this case is heading. If "the locals" don't file some kind of charges, Obama's Department of "Justice" may, now that they're involved in the case. And, that doesn't equal "justice" in any sense of the word. So, what do the people who are seeking "justice" really want?

I'm always seeking justice for every wrong...but, in this case that means that if the officer is guilty and this was a "bad shoot", then he should be convicted of "murder" (or some lesser charge like "manslaugter" - I don't know how either are defined in the state of Missouri). However, that also means that if there isn't enough evidence to indict him, he shouldn't be charged. End of story. I'm not going to go out into the street screaming about how there is "no justice" and feel like my life is over and the possibility of me ever being treated fairly has disappeared. I'll simply be done with the case and move on with my life as if everyone on the planet is NOT seeking to screw with my life...which, they're not.

Somehow, I don't think some people will. Some people seemingly exist as if they're always the victim of something or someone. Some people think that there has always been someone else or some set of circumstances that have held them back. I personally know a few people who are like this. I'm also getting the message that there are a few people in Ferguson, MO who have these same feelings. But, you know what? No one in this country has ever been guaranteed the right to not be offended. Sometimes you will be offended. Sometimes I will be offended. Sometimes life just sucks. We all have sh_tty days. Including Mike Brown and including Officer Darren Wilson. Sometimes that means you cease to exist. Sometimes that means your life changes forever. Sometimes...just sometimes, it also means that there may be no "justice", as you choose to define it.

Other times, it may mean that when you break the law by walking down the middle of a street, you seal your own fate when you run back toward the cop that stops you for walking down the middle of the street. Don't blame him (or her). Blame yourself.

And, parents, please stop blaming others for the situations in which your children place themselves. This country has had enough of that.

EVERYONE: Teach your children to NOT break the law in the first place and THEY will NEVER find themselves in one of these situations. It really is that simple. And, yes, kids will do what they want...they're like people that way. Sometimes you have to deal with their choices on your own. The entire nation shouldn't have deal with them.

Ferguson, MO - Police Kick News Media Off Streets (VIDEO) "You're Putting My Officer's Lives In Jeopardy!"

Screen grab from live video feed
Earlier tonight, while watching a raw live video feed from I happened to record a couple minutes of video that surprised me. St. Louis TV station KSDK's live video feed was providing coverage of the streets of Ferguson, MO during what is turning out to be a second night of rioting. In the video you can clearly hear the police order the news media off of the streets.

Police are out in riot gear tonight attempting to put a stop to the rioting that took place last night after the officer-involved shooting death of an 18-year-old black male in Ferguson, MO (which is apparently a suburb of St. Louis) that took place this past Saturday.

In the video below, the following is depicted:

Police over loud speaker (41 seconds into video): "Please clear the streets. Return to your home and get out of the street."

Officer yelling (57 seconds into video): "News media you need to clear out! This is your last warning! I'm telling you, get out of here! This is your last warning! Understand? You're putting my officer's lives in jeopardy!"

One of the members of the media says, "Let's back up. Let's back up" and the officer again yells something that is inaudible and again repeats: "You're putting my officers lives in jeopardy! You're putting my officer's lives in jeopardy! Get out of here!" At this point the media appears to be preparing to leave and the live video feed goes dead.

I'm not one to bash the police and, frankly, I don't appreciate those that do. In fact, I generally support nearly everything they do because I've never done their job and am pretty certain that I'd be a miserable failure at it. I appreciate the work of most law enforcement officers. What I don't understand in this video is how the presence of the media could possibly be putting the officer's lives in jeopardy. At a time like this I would think that having the media around would provide cover for the police because who would be stupid enough to engage with the police while the media is there with video cameras rolling? It seems to me that, especially right now, more transparency would benefit the police department, not less. It makes no sense to kick the media out. No sense to me, that is.

Hamas Propagandizes Video Of Israeli Missile Strikes (VIDEO)

I's amazing that Hamas would tell lies (sarc). It's almost as if they've been taking lessons from Obama on how to become professional liars. I digress.

The first video below was uploaded to YouTube on July 23rd by the (apparently) pro-Hamas "Watania Media Agency" out of Gaza. The video shows two missile strikes by the IDF (Israeli Defense Forces) on a building in Gaza.

Here's an explanation of the "2 missile strategy" from Jonathan Seidl at TheBlaze:
A new video uploaded by a Gaza news outlet gives an incredible and up-close look at Israel’s “knock on roof” policy.

The tactic involves a smaller projectile being dropped on house of suspected Hamas militants, followed by a larger bomb meant to eliminate the target. The idea is that the first bomb serves as a warning for innocents to evacuate before the target is eliminated.

In the video posted by Watania, viewers see the initial “knock” hit the top of a nearby house. Twenty-five seconds in, the big explosion hits. But not only do viewers see the explosion, they also are able to see the actual bomb in mid-air before it hits its target.

Original video:

Ok. Now, consider WHY there was a video camera set-up to record these missile strikes in the first place. Because the IDF actually calls their targets with a warning to evacuate the building prior to dropping the "knock on the roof" missile before destroying the building.

The time that elapses between the "knock on the roof" missile and the "real" missile reportedly ranges anywhere from a few minutes to a few hours...which allows plenty of time for any "innocents" in the building to save their own lives.

The problem with the video above is that it doesn't depict the truth of what happened in that case. There was an obvious edit made about 12 seconds after the "knock on the roof" missile hits the building. That "edit" makes it appear as though Israel only allowed 17 seconds between the delivery of the "knock on the roof" missile and the "real" one. The video below will help you understand what occurred.

Obama & Holder Complain About Skin Color Because They Are Devoid Of Character - Allen West (VIDEO)

Former Congressman Lt. Col. Allen West spoke at the Western Conservative Summit today in Denver, Colorado. West began his speech by addressing the theme of the Summit "America At Its Best".

This is why Allen West is so loved by Conservatives.

Screen grab from Western Conservative Summit speech.

Read (transcript of first video below):
The theme of this conference is "America at it's best" and I believe that the problem that we have in America is that we don't go out and tell people what America looks like when it is at its best. So therefore, people can come along with trite little messages, sound bites, bumper sticker-type of slogans (like) "hope and change", "change we can believe in", "we're the change that we've been waiting for" and Americans fall for it. So I want to tell you right now the first thing about America being at it's best. It's the fact that a young man born in 1961 in the inner city of Atlanta, Georgia can stand here before you at the Western Conservative Conference and it is not based upon the color of his skin but it's about the content of his character. And the sad thing is that when America is not at its best you have people like Barack Obama and Eric Holder that want to complain about skin color because they are devoid of character. That's the difference between America at its best and America not at its best.

Obama's DOJ & NAACP Meet With City of Norfolk, NE Officials Over July 4th Parade Obama Float

This post has been updated. Scroll down for the update.

What the hell happened to common sense?

I've lived in Norfolk, NE for 20+ years and I have two things to say about this entire situation:
1) You have got to be kidding me.
2) It's too bad that in the year 2014 our nation's first black president, President Obama, can NOT receive equal treatment by the media, the DOJ (Department of Justice) or even the NAACP (National Association for the Advancement of Colored People - Geez, I feel creepy just typing that out - time to change your name, NAACP).

The following quote is from KMTV (the emphasis is mine):

Today, the Iowa-Nebraska NAACP State Area Conference of Branches sent a news release to KMTV Action 3 News, saying they were meeting with Mayor Fuchtman Thursday afternoon. "The State Area NAACP has received numerous concerns and inquiries about this issue," the group said, "and appreciate Mayor Fuchtman and the parade officials' willingness to have open dialog (sic) and address these concerns."

This afternoon, Mayor Fuchtman told KMTV Action 3 News that she and the city administrator would be meeting with a representative of the Department of Justice before the meeting with the NAACP. She did not know if the media would have accessibility to the meeting, as it was being facilitated by the Department of Justice. The DOJ apparently told the city it had received concerns, including from the NAACP, regarding the float.

(Read the entire story from KMTV HERE.)

All of this is because of this over-used idea which was utilized in Norfolk's Independence Day parade on one of the entries. July 4, 2014 - Norfolk, Nebraska:

I say it's an "over-used idea" because this is not the first time this meme has caused a national controversy.

Incident #1 - June 2012 - Florence, Montana: 'Obama Presidential Library' creator says outhouse 'meant to poke fun'

Photo credit:  Billings Gazette

Incident #2 - September 2013 - Tucumcari, New Mexico: Anonymous man hoists ‘Obama’s Presidential Library’ sign above N.M. outhouse

Photo Credit: KOAT 7 News, Albuquerque - screen shot

If any of the above examples are "racist", then this must be as well (as well as all the examples of the "Bush Presidential Library" that I'm not wasting my time to include):

Photo credit:

Racists really do exist in this country. I'm not one of them. Although, I've often been accused of being a "racist" because I disagree with and actually despise several of President Obama's policies. People who laugh at any or all of the above examples are not racists either. They are Americans who are sick and tired of the policies enacted by their elected representatives and they're simply blowing off steam in a manner allowed to them by the Constitution of the United States. Nowhere in that document does it allow people the right to NOT be offended. Occasionally, you will be offended. It is what you choose to do with that offense that will define you as an individual and as an American. You can either accept it in-stride and understand that someday you may do or say something that will offend others (as most people do - most offend/most accept it in-stride). Or you can refuse to accept that YOU DO NOT HAVE THE RIGHT TO not BE OFFENDED in the U.S.A. and create a phony national controversy over something that most people would brush off and never again revisit.


I was born on July 4th. I grew up on main street in a small town in north central Nebraska (population 390). The annual Independence Day parade held in our tiny town went right by our house every year. I used to spend several hours prior to July 4th making sure our lawn looked nice for the fact, the way I remember it in my mind is that I did that without having to be told by my parents to do so. (My parents may have a different recollection of these events.) Nevertheless, I have attended many parades that took place on July 4th. I attended them in my hometown and I have attended them in Norfolk, Nebraska where I have resided for the past 20+ years. I wonder how many Independence Day parades President Obama has attended in his life? Prior to him seeking an elected office, I seriously doubt he ever attended one July 4th parade. (I'm giving him more credit than he deserves by assuming/"hoping" that he's attended even ONE Independence Day parade since he was elected to any office.)

Oh my, did I offend someone with those last statements? Good. Now, offend me and we'll be even. See? That's how it's supposed to work. You have the freedom to offend and so do I. The difference between you and I is that I don't seek to silence, curtail or regulate your offenses. Why do you seek to silence others, Glory Kathurima?

Oh, one more thing I should probably add - which all news stories related to this insane story failed to mention - is that there is the "slight" possibility that this story is nothing but an angry Democrat striking back at Conservative America for having the audacity to proclaim their disapproval of the Liar-in-chief. You see, Glory Kathurima is a self-described "Kenyan" (first - even though she's lived in the USA for the past 9 years) and "Devoted Democrat" (second). don't need to take my word for it...take hers:

Photo credit:

Oh, one more "one more thing", Glory has also spoken to students at Norfolk Public Schools on "Diversity Day" (in 2011). I wonder what all was discussed and if it had a political slant to it? That could have been an interesting talk. Or not?

Photo credit:

Those of you who still support President Obama, if you'd like to know why so many people find President Obama to be a corrupt, lying scumbag and the worst president of our lives, here are few reasons why. None of them have to do with his race...except in the numerous instances where he sought to divide all of us based on our race:
Obama supporters will go hysterical over this well sourced list of 731 examples of his lying, lawbreaking, corruption, cronyism, etc. This list is updated almost daily. Right now the number of examples included is 731. So, if anyone needs help in understanding why many people don't like this president, please, do yourself a favor and return to that list often. Don't teach your children that people's dislike for President Obama has one thing to do with his skin color. If you're currently doing that, YOU may be the one who is a racist. And, I'd say that you should fear yourself.

Of course there's a Facebook page for this: Demand an Apology from Norfolk Odd Fellows Parade Everyone who "likes" this Facebook page (and even those who don't) can participate there. ;)

********UPDATE******** (11:45PM CST):

I beg, beg, beg the Odd Fellow Lodge to NOT "apologize" for this event. Give this several more days. (I've been told you may be ready to "apologize".) PLEASE, DON'T DO IT!!! Let this settle. Don't let the limelight from this event or the attention you're receiving from this story effect ANY decision to "apologize". God knows...the last thing this country needs is yet another "apology" for something someONE perceived as a "wrong". Stand strong and stand by your convictions. Hopefully you'll remember what they are...even amid all this hype.

I promise you. This hype will die down. You may not feel like it will...but, it will, and soon. A month from now you'll be saying, "Hey, do remember when that person said this?" Trust me. It will end.


To Glory Kathurima: If you have ever identified as or portrayed yourself as "an artist from Africa", we may have talked to each other at the Norfolk American Legion shortly after you arrived in Norfolk (9 years ago...or so)...and, we got along really well. I really hope you'll contact me. I don't remember the girl I met as having a child OR that her name was "Glory"...please don't be offended by memory sucks...I forget ALL people I meet, no matter their color. ;) Maybe it wasn't you, but I remember the girl (woman - no offense) I talked to as describing herself as having a "nomadic lifestyle" as you do near the end of this video.


To those threatening EITHER of the sides involved in this story:
Stop it!
Threaten me!
Threaten me because I support the Odd Fellow Lodge as a sponsor of the Norfolk, Nebraska Independence Day parade!!!
Threaten me because I support Glory's RIGHT to disagree with this float!!!
Threaten me because I'll record all of your idiotic comments/threats and I'll publish them for the world to see. ;)


I've made national news before for the perceived "good" things and for the perceived "bad" things I've published online and I've had people from all over the country calling my house or contacting me online and threatening me. I know how this goes (as someone on the "right" of the aisle). Glory, if people from the "right" are threatening YOU, to HELL with them! They are the problem with this country (as are the people from the left who do that to people like me on the right).

(My latest comments here are based on Glory's comments during the last minute of this video where she admits that she's received threats in this story published by the Norfolk News Bureau on YouTube): Norfolk 4th of July Float - Glory Kathurima Interview

This is from the House Committee on Oversight and Reform hearing about the IRS losing Lois Lerner's emails. This hearing ended at 9:53PM CST tonight.

An Afternoon of Tornadoes - Stanton & Pilger (My VIDEO)

Please heed the language warning if you choose to watch or listen to this video. I got sick of editing out my own bad, I quit doing it about 19-minutes into this video. This video is 1 hour & 40 minutes long (yes, even after editing). This is how the afternoon storms developed...from before they were spotted until people were being transported by ambulance to the hospital from Pilger.

This is the description I put under this video on YouTube:
***Language Warning*** This video is a collection of the video I shot while following the tornadoes that hit the Stanton, NE area and the town of Pilger, NE. Scanner traffic from Stanton County storm spotters & Norfolk Fire & Rescue, as well as local radio station reports as this day unfolded, can be heard in this video.

I'm a "storm chaser", basically out of necessity, home is not the kind you stay in when tornado sirens are blaring. I've been "storm chasing" for about 15 years. I've lived in north central & northeast Nebraska my whole life & I'd never seen a tornado...until this day, when I saw two of them (or more - you decide).

An Afternoon of Tornadoes - Stanton & Pilger 6-16-14

If you'd prefer to go directly to YouTube to watch or listen to this video here is the direct link:

One other note: I am working on conducting an interview, of sorts, with one or two survivors of the Pilger tornadoes. Their comments will not be edited - their stories will be "in their own words", not in mine (at least, that's how I'm hoping this goes). We all just have to find the time to complete this.

Can You Help Us Find This Woman? She Stopped To Help After The Pilger Tornado

The original story is below the photo.

*****UPDATE***** 8:30AM Central time - June 19, 2014
I think we have located her! I'm awaiting confirmation from HER. Thank you to EVERYONE that has helped! Gotta love the POWER of "social media", eh? ;) #PrayForPilger

*****UPDATE***** 2:41PM Central time - June 19, 2014
We HAVE located her. I'm waiting to find out if she wishes to be identified here or not. She and Charlene are meeting now. Thank you again to everyone that helped spread the word.

*****UPDATE***** 2:08AM Central time - June 20, 2014
The woman in the photo is Kendra Jo Liibbe from Norfolk. The following is a statement she publicly published on her facebook wall about 3 hours ago:
So I have to say after today, wit the floods of gratitude ive recieved over the pilger tornado, an seeing all the ppl helping, the generous donations of food an labor assistance, volenteers, the celebritys puttin the word out (Larry the Cable guy) an offerin their time an help (pausing on tour... Bret Michaels) speaks volumes!! Echos really! Im so blessed to even be a part of it but make me proud to be, not only american, but a NEBRASKAN!!! We may not have it all together but together we got it all, an clearly we can accomplish an overcome daily battles.... this is goin to be the basis on which I myself rebuild my life an what makes it even better is I know now, im not doin it alone!!!

A friend of mine (Charlene) lived through the tornado in Pilger. Charlene was inside the local CO-OP/convenience store when the tornado hit Pilger. She suggested that everyone move to a different cooler...and, everyone who was inside the CO-OP lived.

After the storm passed Charlene found comfort in this woman (in the photo above) who had seen the storm pass through Pilger...she was not a "local" woman...she was just passing through and stopped to help. Charlene, herself, was giving comfort to the sister of the young girl who died as a result of this tornado. Charlene is seeking the identity of the woman in this picture. If you know who this woman is or think some of your friends may be able to assist in identifying this woman, please share this post. Thank you.

I will post this as a "public" post on Facebook on Charlene's wall and, on my Facebook wall as well. You can comment on Facebook or you can leave a comment on this blog.

Pilger, Stanton & Northeast Nebraska Tornadoes - A Collection of Stories, Links & Video

This is a collection of links to the massive number of news stories and videos relating to the "twin tornadoes" that struck northeast Nebraska on the afternoon of Monday, June 16, 2014. These links are included in no particular order. There are so many stories and videos that it would be impossible for me to organize them all in chronological order. This post will be continually updated with more information as I become aware of it. All UPDATES will be added to be bottom of this post.

Quote at the end of the following story about Glenn Beck's charity, Mercury One:
"Mercury One charity announced on Monday night that they would be deploying five tractor trailers full of supplies to the affected areas."

For those who are unaware, these 5 semi-trailers full of supplies will NOT be going through governmental sources, who will turn away such items. They will be going DIRECTLY to those in need. (At least, that's my understanding about how Mercury One reacts during this type of crisis. Commonly, they work with a local church...although, Pilger's Lutheran Church doesn't PHYSICALLY exist anymore...the building is gone.)
