From the Las Vegas Sun: A cross-country fight had to make an unscheduled landing when a service dog pooped twice in the aisle, sickening passengers with the odor.
Christie called the episode a "rare and unfortunate situation." The flight continued after the mess was cleaned up on the ground. The passenger and service dog were rebooked on another flight.
Jim Kutsch, president at The Seeing Eye guide dog school in Morristown, N.J., tells The Philadelphia Inquirer that such incidents are rare, but that dogs occasionally get sick on planes, too.
The people who got sick couldn't handle some dog poop?
Apparently, they don't have kids, pets, live with pollution, ever smelled bad underarms, smelled a fart, never went to the bathroom and crapped in the toilet, had a BBQ etc..
Have they ever visited a farm, a factory, been outside a paper factory, lived in the big city, been to a NASCAR race when they blew an engine or a car spun, walked near a homeless person or burned food in the miocrowave or oven?
We are becoming a nation of wimps.

Will There Be A Casino Strike Tomorrow?

Tomorrow, June 1st, is the deadline the union has given several downtown hotel and casinos to settle or the union thugs will go on strike.
From the LVRJ:
Come Sunday morning, Fremont Street could be recovering from a typical Saturday night in Las Vegas, or there will be labor unrest.
It all depends on how contract talks proceed between the ownership of five downtown Las Vegas hotel-casinos and representatives of Culinary Workers Local 226 and Bartenders Local 165.
The unions have called for a strike starting at 5 a.m. Sunday at the Four Queens, Binion’s, Plaza, Las Vegas Club and Golden Gate, where new collective bargaining agreements have not been settled. The old five-year contracts expired a year ago. Contract extensions ran out in February and the unions set a strike date 10 days ago.
All casinos on the Strip covered by the union contracts settled their contract negotiations by March.
As for downtown, the unions reached deals with the Golden Nugget in April, the Fremont and Main Street Station — which are owned by Boyd Gaming Corp. — on Monday, and the D Las Vegas on Friday.
Contract talks are expected to continue with unsettled hotels through the weekend.
Union spokeswoman Bethany Khan said in a statement that roughly 1,000 restaurant workers, hotel housekeepers, cocktail servers, bartenders, and other union members would walk off their jobs at the appointed time at any of the hotels where contracts have not been agreed upon.
If there is a strike, Culinary and Bartender members will carry picket signs in front of each entrance of the targeted casinos, including entrances along the Fremont Street Experience. The striking workers are expected to be joined on the picket lines by workers from properties that have contracts.
Some of the casinos that are struck, will probably hire non-union workers to replace the strikers and I would support that.
If you go on strike, you have to accept the consequences that you may no longer be employed and you have to accept what the union provides for you.  Little pay and no health insurance.  They may have to wait to get a settlement but lose thousands of dollars of salary to get a few hundred dollars.
And their health insurance is about the best in the Valley, so much so, that the union is complaining about the taxes ObamaCare will impose on it because their insurance is so good.
So, if they go on strike, there will be plenty of people waiting in line to take their jobs.
Is that what the strikers want?

Another Reason Why People Hate Government

The silly season in the Nye County Sheriff's Department.
From the Pahrump Valley Times:
Three Nye County Sheriff’s deputies who are supposed to be out on paid stress leave — they even reportedly filed worker compensation claims — were caught spending their time not relaxing or seeking treatment, but campaigning.
Not only that, the deputies were trespassed from a sheriff’s lieutenant’s home Wednesday after they were accused of stopping to pose for photos with “Anybody but Rick” signs in the officer’s driveway.
The deputies were placing political flyers throughout the lieutenant’s neighborhood when they allegedly stopped and posed for the selfies.
Making matters worse, two of those deputies were further accused of yelling profanities at the superior officer, Lt. Mark Medina, when he asked them not to return to his property. A neighbor called Medina while he was at work, telling him they had seen several unknown individuals apparently posing for photos with signs outside his home.
Medina, who says he has a sign supporting Assistant Sheriff Rick Marshall’s candidacy for sheriff in his front yard, went home to investigate. He said he soon discovered Det. David Boruchowitz, Det. Logan Gibbs and Deputy Adam Tippets – all three of whom were involved in the April arrests of Marshall and longtime NCSO volunteer Ben Gulley for allegedly stealing political signs – as well as two other men walking one street over from his home.
“(The neighbors) didn’t know who these people were and I didn’t know who these people were. Only when we found these men walking down the next street over did we come to finally realize who they were,” Medina said.
The lieutenant, who is in charge of jail operations at the Nye County Detention Center, said the men were holding “Anybody but Rick” signs when he confronted them.
Based on what the neighbors had told him about what they saw, Medina said he asked that they not return to his property again.
Things soon got heated.
“Having been told by my neighbor that they had been on my property taking pictures and posing for pictures holding ‘Anybody but Rick’ signs, I simply asked them not to come onto my property any longer. Don’t go on my property, stay off my property. I was met with f*** you, f*** you lieutenant, f*** you Medina, from Boruchowitz and Logan Gibbs, both of whom are currently out on paid stress leave as far as I know,” Medina said.
After the heated exchange, Medina said he had an on-duty deputy formally trespass the individuals from his property.
I wonder if they got a doctor's note to go campaigning to relieve stress?
So, you have 3 public employees and at least 1 union thug, who are collecting a paycheck from the government because they are so stressed out and so they go campaigning to relieve their stress.
And if a Nye County Sheriff deputy gets hurt or killed because these buffoons are out with their fake stress illness, may God condemn them to hell.
And people wonder why people hate government so much.

From the Albuquerque Journal:
Now it’s raining grasshoppers.
The National Weather Service doesn’t want to jump to any conclusions, but the pests have apparently become so abundant on the West Mesa that they’ve started showing up on National Weather Service radar. Jason Frazier, a meteorologist for the weather service in Albuquerque, said this year’s grasshopper plague is the most likely explanation for “weird radar echoes” that appeared Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday.
“We knew pretty quickly it wasn’t rain,” Frazier said Friday.
The images prompted weather service officials to test their West Mesa radar, but technicians found no evidence of faulty equipment, he said. Radar images posted on the agency’s website Thursday night showed several clusters in areas west of Albuquerque and Rio Rancho, and largely north of Interstate 40.
Migrating birds, bats and other creatures sometimes show up on radar, but officials said they don’t recall ever having clouds of grasshoppers show up on their screens, said meteorologist Chuck Jones.
The insects hatched weeks ago and are now full grown, he said. “That’s why we’re seeing them now on the radar, because they’re larger.”
Maybe this is how the global warming nuts measure weather- they include grsshoppers in their studies.

Even In Illinois, Obama Gets Dissed

From the Chicago Sun Times: A plan to offer $100 million in tax dollars to lure Barack Obama’s presidential library to Illinois is on the shelf, with lawmakers prepared to wrap up their spring session without advancing the idea.
Democrats in the president’s home state pushed the proposal to compete against rival bids from Hawaii and New York. But it faced opposition from Republicans wary of an expensive and precedent-setting gift — with no immediately identified funding source — for a mostly private endeavor when the state faces serious financial difficulties.
Not all Democrats were on board either, and the Illinois House adjourned Friday without calling for any final votes on the measure.
Yeah, it was an outragous request but after all, this is Illionis, home of the FIBs and and so many Democrats that you can't swing a dead cat with out hitting one.
And they dissed Obama.

Are You Kidding Me?

From the Garden Island:   A Kilauea man was given probation and a fine Wednesday in 5th Circuit Court for punishing his son by making him walk a mile for not answering his questions — a form of discipline a judge called “old school” and no longer appropriate.
Robert Demond was sentenced to a one-year probation, a $200 fine and to a child parenting class for a misdemeanor charge of second-degree endangering the welfare of a minor.Demond said he would handle it differently now after going through Family Court, where the case originated on Oct. 17, 2013, and to Circuit Court, where he pleaded no contest to the misdemeanor charge.
Demond told the judge that it was a common form of punishment when he was a kid and that he didn’t see it as morally wrong or criminal. He had picked his son up from school and questioned him about a matter that came to his attention. When his son didn’t respond, he stopped the vehicle and made him walk home to think about his actions.
“How far did you make him walk?” asked Judge Kathleen Watanabe.
“About a mile,” Demond said.
These are different times, Watanabe said. It is understandable that you became upset with your son, but it is dangerous for children to walk along the highway, and there are predators out there, she said. The age of the child was not revealed in the course of the hearing and the Office of the Prosecuting Attorney would not divulge further information.
Unless the kid was 5 years old and was not being followed by the dad, this is just fricking crazy.
Are they a bunch of wimps in Hawaii?

The Obamaville Legacy

This is the sad legacy of Obamaville/Chicago.
From the Chicago Tribune: Betty Howard was just going to be a minute.  She left the hazard lights of her car flashing as she dashed into a real estate office along a busy stretch of East 79th Street in Chatham to drop off some paperwork at her second job.
As she talked and laughed with co-workers inside late Thursday afternoon, a gang dispute erupted on the street. Bullets tore through a wall, one grazing Louis Hardy, 58, who dived to the floor before noticing Howard lying nearby with a gunshot to the head.
“My mind is racing, I’m trying to decide how best I could help her,” Hardy recalled today.
Howard's eyes were wide open, as if she were pleading for help. Hardy said he bent down and told her, “Hold on. Help is on the way.”
Howard died minutes later.
Hardy was grazed in the stomach and treated on the scene.  A third person,  a 23-year-old woman, was shot in the hand as she walked her Shih Tzu dog outside. She took cover at the corner and then realized she had been wounded.
Howard, 58, was among 14 people shot on the south and west sides Thursday, including a man seriously wounded near an elementary school on the West Side as children were being let out.
She was a respected special education teacher at one of Chicago’s highest-achieving public schools and the mother of two adult children. Her loss was mourned at Gwendolyn Brooks College Preparatory Academy and by neighbors, relatives and colleagues.
Howard’s brother is a veteran Chicago cop who said the pain he sees every day on the streets was now "hitting home."
“I deal with it all day, every day, because I do work the streets and I'm aware of what's going on in the Chicagoland area. But it just has to stop,” Officer Orlando Long said outside Northwestern Memorial Hospital, where Howard was pronounced dead.
“I feel the pain, I know how other people feel now when we just go to the scenes and do what we have to do as a police officer," he said. "But now it’s hitting home and it’s a terrible situation.”,0,1025674.story
As a fellow special education teacher, I mourn her passing.
And the innocents in Obamaville continue to be slaughtered.

Only In Illinois???

From the Chicago Sun Times: Cook County has long been ridiculed for allowing dead people cast votes, but the state may have just garnered a new distinction. 
It paid $12 million in health care for people who were already dead — including in one case, for a person who had died in 1989. 
A new financial audit released by Auditor General Bill Holland’s office on Thursday found that the Illinois Department of Health and Family Services had 8,232 people still on Medicaid rolls qualifying for benefits, even though they were dead. 
The state paid monthly premiums totaling almost $7 million for 561 people who had already been dead for an average of nearly two years before they were enrolled in a state managed care program. 
“A person was dead for 663 days and then they were signed up for Managed Care,” an incredulous Holland told the Sun-Times.  “They need to improve their system to ensure the death dates for current enrollees, and just to ensure that people who were deceased were not enrolled.”
The Auditor General’s office compared those enrolled in Medicaid as of June 2013 to Illinois Department of Public Health death records dating back to 1970.
Somehow, I don't think the FIB's are alone in this.

Obamaville: Thrsday Massacre

From the Chicago Tribune:
A 58-year-old woman was killed and two others were injured in a shooting in the Chatham neighborhood on the South Side, several hours after a man was shot and seriously wounded near a Lawndale school this afternoon, officials said.
In addition to the woman's fatal shooting, two other men were killed and nine others were injured from gunfire during daytime incidents on the south and west sides, police said.
The woman was shot in the head on the 700 block of East 79th Street at 5:26 p.m. and was pronounced dead.
The woman was inside a real estate office when bullets came through the wall and struck her, police said. In addition, a 58-year-old old man who was also inside the business sustained a gunshot graze wound to his stomach, police said.
A 23-year-old woman was outside when she sustained a graze wound to her hand, police said. None of those victims appeared to be the intended targets, police said.,0,5820899.story
Meanwhile, Obama and Obamaite, Rahm Emmanuel say the following about the violent deaths.....

Even In The death Maya Angelou, ObamaShows It's About Him

What a piece of crap Obama is:

Yeah, it's all about him and no one else.
How pathetic his life must be if he thinks he has to be the center of attention every time, all the time.

People Thought This Guy Was A Doctor?????

From the Las Vegas Sun:
One man has been arrested and a Metro Police investigation is ongoing after a string of phony medical offices containing dangerous narcotics were uncovered, according to police.
The investigation started after the Nevada State Board of Pharmacy received a tip about an illegal dentist office on West Oakey Boulevard, near Sahara Avenue and Decatur Boulevard, the release said.
And people wanted to trust this illegal doctor wannabe?
They are about as stupid as this idiot.

Talk About Bad Timing

Today, at the Wal-Mart the 7-Up company representative brought us some 7-Up 2 liter bottles of soda.
On the bottle, in big bold letters it said:

Donald Sterling was said to be proud of 7-Up.

Senile Harry Reid Would Love This

Waffle Head Dingy Harry
I got this strange e-mail from the Republicans today:
In a desperate attempt to cling onto power, Democrat Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid has become “the most dangerous man in the world,” “an imperial majority leader,” and a “wannabe totalitarian,” according to several headlines.
Harry Reid has been on an unprecedented power trip—from rewriting the Constitution to fit his political needs, using the "nuclear option" to change the Senate rules, unilaterally pushing through President Obama's liberal appointees and judicial nominees, and circumventing the normal checks and balances system to ram through his radical agenda.It’s unlike anything we’ve ever seen. And it’s terrifying.Reid’s abuses of power – and the desperate and deceitful measures he has taken to hold onto his position as Majority Leader – are nothing short of radical, unethical and downright disturbing. He truly is the most dangerous man for America.That’s why it’s absolutely crucial that we fire Harry Reid and take back the Senate. There’s too much at stake.In the past year, Harry Reid only allowed Republicans to vote on nine of their proposed amendments. This type of action is deplorable—and the Obama-Reid stronghold must be stopped....
Chuck DeFeo
RNC Deputy Chief of Staff
Of course, they ask for money after the letter ends.
For some reason, I think Reid is smiling at this e-mail.

Chump Change

From Cherry Hill firefighters earned more than those in Philadelphia and New York City in recent years, and the approval of a nearly $25 million budget in 2012 went unnoticed by most residents because of a dismal election turnout, according to an audit released Wednesday by the state Comptroller's Office....
In 2011, according to the audit, Cherry Hill firefighters earned on average $80,000 - nearly $10,000 more than the average salary of firefighters in New Jersey that year. Cherry Hill firefighters also started at a salary of $50,099, about $10,000 more than firefighters in New York City and Philadelphia, the audit said. According to the collective-bargaining agreement signed Feb. 6, the starting salary for firefighters in Cherry Hill is now $41,000, an 18 percent drop. Gibson said firefighters were also receiving smaller raises, but he did not have the numbers.
Shoot, the average firefighter in Clark County, NV.makes in excess of $100,000, so the Cherry Hill firefighters are paupers compared to Clark County firefighters.
Maybe it's time for an audit of the full time fire departments in Clark County and probably the State of Nevada.

Great Moments In Education: Graduation Brawl

That must have been a hell of a valedictorian speech.

Hey, We Are #37

In a supposed scientiic report, Las Vegas ranks 37 out 50 of the fittist cities in the United States.

Community Health Rank: 38
Community Health Score: 40.9
The worst cities: Memphis and Loiusville.

Washington D.C.?  Seriously?
Maybe it's because of all the people who are running away from criminals and/or politicians and running to bribes and cash money.
In Vegas, we just run to buffets and gambling.

I'm Not To Vote For A Judge Who Says This

We, in Nevada, are in the midst of early voting in the primaries for different local, Federal and State elections.
We are also being bombarded by political adertisements.
And the most irritating are the ones from the judges who say they are compassionate.
Who the hell wants a compassionate judge?
If you have a compasionate judge, that means the judge has taken sides.
If the judge is compassionate to a defendent in criminal court, then you don't feel compassion for the victim.
And if you feel compassion to the victim, then are you giving the defendent a fair trial.
And the same goes for the civil and family judges.  If you are compassionate to one side, you are screwing the other side.
I want a judge who is fair to everyone, be tough but fair on criminals.
I want a judge who is neutral in civil trials and doesn't make rulings against a business because they have deep pockets.
And of course I want a judge to know the law.
But I don't want a compassionate judge... unless I bribe the judge if I am trouble.

Maybe Because He Is A Bad Actor?

From the Houston Chronicle: Not the face! Brad Pitt was punched by a random man on the red carpet at the premiere of Angelina Jolie’s film Maleficent on Wednesday, May 28, a source tells Us Weekly.
Pitt was at the El Capitan theatre in Hollywood for the premiere of the Disney film when a man suddenly jumped the barrier and ran up to the 12 Years a Slave actor while he was walking down the carpet.
The man then made contact with Pitt’s face before police intervened. 
According to TMZ, the attacker is currently being detained by LAPD and will be booked for misdemeanor battery.
I've never been a fan of Brad Pitt, so, if he got punched, to me it's like "yeah, whatever."

Why People Hate Government

From the New York Daily News: A Harlem woman has been hit with a whopping $11.67 million medical bill from a state institution she says killed her mentally disabled brother.
Shaniece Luke, 39, said her jaw dropped when she received the bill from the state Office for People with Developmental Disabilities.
“I thought it was ridiculous. I couldn’t believe it!” Luke told the Daily News Wednesday.
She and her lawyers contend the astronomical bill is in retaliation for filing a wrongful death lawsuit against the agency and the Queens developmental center where her brother, Rasheen Rose, died in 2012.
“It has to be,” Luke said. “But they were the ones who killed my brother.”
The notarized bill, sent to Rose’s estate in March, was for paid Medicaid assistance from August 2002 up to Rose’s death. The state agency is demanding to be paid the staggering amount if Luke prevails in her suit and is awarded punitive damages.
Rose, 33, who was born with severe autism and was never able to communicate verbally, died on Aug. 6, 2012 at the Bernard Fineson Developmental Center in Queens Village.
The city medical examiner ruled the death a homicide in December 2012, citing evidence that Rose died from injuries caused by being physically restrained.
Luke’s attorneys said their investigation showed that the 5-foot-7, 175-pound Rose was restrained in a dangerous prone position for up to 30 minutes by three staffers, including a 275-pound worker who sat on him.
“He was basically crushed to death,” DePass said.

I used to work in state institutions and other institutions (work I said, not live) and for the workers to take down this guy in this manner, especially 3 of them, just is inexcusable.  There are other ways to calm a resident down, including time out rooms, medication, behavior interventions etc.
And then to send the family a bill for $11,670,000 when it doesn't cost that much to house the guy, unless he lived to age 200.

Obama Gets Rodney Dangerfield Treatment At West Point

From the Washington Times: President Obama was welcomed by the Black Knight of the Hudson for his speech at West Point on Wednesday, but less than 25 percent of the cadets gave him a standing ovation upon his introduction, the Daily Mail reported.
“Receiving tepid applause and a short standing ovation from less than one-quarter of the audience upon his introduction, Obama argued for a contradictory foreign policy that relies on NATO and the United Nations while insisting that ‘America must always lead on the world stage,’ the paper reported.
Damn and he is their boss for the next 966 days 23 hours 21 minutes 39 seconds.
So in honor of Obama:

2 Sad Cases

From the Las Vegas Sun: A defiant 15-year-old, apparently tired of nagging by his older brother to get his life together, is charged with first-degree murder after police said he shot his brother in the head last week in front of the boys’ mother.
According to a Metro Police arrest report released today, the boys’ mother, Wendy Bronson, was resting in her room Thursday when she heard the familiar sound of Turner, 15, and Clayton, 18, fighting.
She went to the hallway and saw Clayton clutching his stomach. He told her Turner had shot him. Wendy Bronson called 911 to report the shooting at their home in the 7400 block of Arcadia Bluff Court, and then waited with her wounded son in the dining room, the report said.
Moments later, Turner returned with the handgun, walked up to Clayton and shot him in the head, the report says.
According to the arrest report, Turner and Clayton had been fighting for the last several months because Clayton kept telling Turner he needed to get his life together.
And this case:
From the Sun: The woman accused of critically injuring her 11-year-old son in a Memorial Day shooting confessed to the crime and told police she was building up the courage to kill herself and her three children to put them in a “better place,” according to a Metro Police arrest report released today.....
Carrillo had called a friend, “Bobby,” to whom Carrillo owed money. Before Bobby arrived at the house, a fearful Carrillo retrieved a rifle she kept in her sister’s bedroom, loaded it and placed it in the bedroom Carrillo was sharing with her three children and a niece.
About 1:30 a.m. Monday, Carrillo met Bobby outside the house and paid him. After going back inside, Carrillo went to the bedroom and picked up the rifle. Afraid, Carrillo told police she was building up courage to kill herself and her children so they could all be in a “better place.”
The 11-year-old son, who Carrillo said had never been accepted by her family, was asleep in a sleeping bag under a window with his head on a pillow. Carrillo lowered the gun and told the boy, “I love you.” Headlights shone through the window, a car door shut, and Carrillo pulled the trigger.
Carrillo chambered another round of ammunition, but the father of her sister's children, who had heard the shot, came into the room. The two struggled, but the man was able to get the rifle away from Carrillo.
Now, you have 2 families that are destroyed, 2 kids who are dead and almost dead and for what?
A pissed off kid and a mom on drugs.

And They Call Republicans Stupid

From The Havre Daily News:
Dems call on defeat of GOP in November
Democratic candidates at a Havre fundraiser had a consistent message: The main goal is keep Republicans out of office in the fall election.
Gee, who would have thought that.

Good Riddance To Old Geezer

He needed to be shown the door.
From the Houston Chronicle:
Three weeks after his 91st birthday, U.S. Rep. Ralph Hall, the oldest man in Congress, was defeated in a hard-fought GOP runoff challenge from former U.S. Attorney John Ratcliffe, a contest that divided the loyalties of tea party groups that took sides in the race.
The Associated Press declared Ratcliffe the winner shortly after 9 p.m.
The loss could make Hall the first congressional incumbent to fall in 2014.
Hall, a former Democrat who was first elected to Congress during the Carter administration, had to fend off criticism that he was too old and had been in Washington too long. He fought back with an ad that got national attention for making a virtue of his age, showing off the wrinkles on his face which he said he got fighting "Obamacare" and other liberal causes.
While Ratcliffe got the support of some influential tea party groups, Hall refused to carry the establishment mantle. Most of the Texas Republicans in Congress rallied around him, but so, too, did maverick tea party figures like Minnesota Congresswoman Michele Bachmann and former Congressman Ron Paul, a libertarian Republican.
Hall's campaign also emphasized Ratcliffe's job as a partner in a law firm founded by former Bush administration figure John Ashcroft, hardly a tea party figure. Hall had said that this would be his final term in Congress in a northeast Texas district that skews heavily Republican.
With no Democratic candidate in the 4th congressional district, Ratcliffe will be unopposed in November.
There should be no reason for a guy to be serving in Congress since the Carter admnistration.
And the good thing about the Texas primaries?  The Tea Party lives on.

And Anti-Gun Nuts Would Oppose This

From the San Fran Chronicle: A man defended his three younger siblings in a shootout inside their Central California home early Tuesday, killing one intruder and sending a second to the hospital with serious injuries, officials said.
Tulare County Sheriff Mike Boudreaux said the 22-year-old man defending his family was also shot in the early morning gun battle but expected to survive after undergoing surgery. Investigators continue to search for one or two more suspects. Boudreaux said the multiple bullet holes the family's home showed signs of a violent exchange.
"I can tell you, this was a gun battle," he said, expressing praise for the man who defended his family. "He was in a fight for his life inside his own home."
Boudreaux said the man was asleep at the home in rural Tulare County near the community of Orosi. At about 5:30 a.m., Boudreaux said he heard somebody kicking down the door, so he took his siblings — ages 8 to 18 — into another room. He grabbed a gun and the shooting started.
Arriving to the home, deputies found one of the intruders dead on the front driveway. Boudreaux said a video surveillance camera captured the injured suspect being dropped off at a hospital by an Astro minivan. The suspect underwent surgery and remains in serious condition, said Boudreaux, adding that none of the younger siblings was hurt.
Thank goodness he survived and the thugs were either killed or injured.
Sadly, there are anti-gun nuts out there who would say this homeowner should not have been allowed to own a gun and defend himself and family.

Damn, That's A Lot Of Meat

10+pounds of meat down in 1
5 minutes.
Was it a bear?
A lion?
My border collie dog Brody?
No, No and No... it was a woman.
From the San Fran Chronicle: A competitive eater from Nebraska has set a record by devouring a 72-ounce steak at an Amarillo steakhouse, and then decided to chase it down with another 72 ounces.
The Amarillo Globe-News ( and the Twitter page for the Big Texan Steak Ranch say Molly Schuyler on Monday downed the 4 ½-pound slab of beef in 4:58.
She then took a more pedestrian time of 9:59 to finish the second.
The restaurant invites anyone to a free meal if they eat not just the 72-ounce steak, but also a baked potato, shrimp, a salad and bread roll in less than an hour.
The previous record was 8:52.
In February, Schuyler, a 5-foot-7, 125-pound mother from Bellevue, Nebraska, ate 363 chicken wings in 30 minutes to set a record in Philadelphia.
Thats like a eating a 10 baby.
Hate to see her food bill or how she trains.

Who Thought This Was A Good Idea?

The new museum at the World Trade Center,where they have human remains stored in the basement, not only has a gift shop, someone decided that it was a good idea to sell a cheese platter showing the United States and dots where the planes crashed on 9/11.
Probably the only people stupider than those who came up with the cheese plate platter idea are those who would buy it.

This Has To Make You Angry

Why wasn't he in jail?
From jsonline, Milwaukee:
An 18-year-old man who is a convicted felon with a lengthy criminal record has been arrested in the playground shooting of a 10-year-old girl, Milwaukee police announced Monday.
The man previously has been arrested 15 times and was on probation at the time of the shooting that gravely wounded Sierra Guyton, 10, on the Clarke Street Elementary School playground on Wednesday, Police Chief Edward Flynn said.
The man's name was not released.
Police say the girl was caught in the crossfire when two people began shooting at each other. The chief said it was not clear whether the man who was arrested had fired the shot that hit Sierra, but Flynn called him a "very strong suspect" as the shooter. Investigators do not yet have the details of what prompted the shootout, he added....
The suspect in the playground shooting has racked up arrests for trespassing, battery, robbery and motor vehicle theft since the age of 12.
Most recently, he was charged with burglary as an adult. He pleaded guilty in 2013 and was sentenced to one year in jail, with credit for 127 days of time served. A judge postponed the jail time, instead placing the teen on probation for three years.
In February, the teen was a passenger in a car that came under gunfire. He was not wounded and did not cooperate with authorities.
On May 14, he was shot on W. Center St., although police did not provide any other details. A week later, Sierra was shot on the playground.
The teen was identified as a suspect within 12 hours of the shooting, and officers spent three days trying to find him, Flynn said. He was arrested in Milwaukee late Sunday.
Sadly, the girl is brain dead, with little hope of a recovery.
There are some people on this planet who are animals and not real human beings and this thug is one of them.

Darwin Award Nominees

You just can't fix stupid.
From the LVRJ: A 19-year-old man told investigators he caused a three-car crash when he fainted while holding his breath as he drove through a tunnel northwest of Portland, Oregon State Police said.
Daniel J. Calhon, of Snohomish, Washington, told investigators he fainted Sunday afternoon while holding his breath in the Highway 26 tunnel near the community of Manning, according to a news release. His car, a 1990 Toyota Camry, drifted across the centerline and crashed head-on with a Ford Explorer.
Both vehicles struck the tunnel walls before a pickup hit the Camry.
Calhon and his passenger, 19-year-old Bradley Meyring, of Edmonds, Washington, suffered non-life-threatening injuries, as did the two people in the Explorer: Thomas Hatch Jr., 67, and Candace Hatch, 61, from Astoria. All four were taken to hospitals.
The two people in the pickup were not hurt.
Calhon was cited for reckless driving, three counts of reckless endangerment and fourth-degree assault in Washington County Circuit Court. It was not clear if he had a lawyer.
State Police Lt. Gregg Hastings said Monday he’s not sure why Calhon was holding his breath, but some people hold their breaths in tunnels as part of a game or superstition.
And this from the LVRJ:
Georgia officials say an 18-year-old drowned just hours after graduating high school when he was tied to a shopping cart and pushed into a lake as part of a game with friends.
Georgia Department of Natural Resources spokeswoman Melissa Cummings says Chance Werner of Cartersville died at Lake Allatoona about 35 miles northwest of Atlanta. His body was found early Sunday morning in about 30 feet of water and he was still tied to the cart.
She says in the game Saturday night, participants sat in a shopping cart that was tied to a pole.
Others pushed the cart to the end of the dock so that the person sitting in it would be flung into the water. Cummings says the cart was tied to Werner instead of a pole and it pulled him under.
Hurry up and let Jeff Foxsworthy know of a new red neck game.

He Has Risen...Kind Of

A big oops by Metro police.
From the LVRJ: The victim of Las Vegas police’s 51st homicide investigation was not as dead as police said last week.
When Metro released information about a shooting that occurred in the central valley Friday night, they wrote that the identity of the victim, as well as the cause and manner of death, would be released by the Clark County coroner’s office.
The coroner’s office was not aware of the case over the weekend. The reason: He wasn’t dead.
Police found the man shot in the head lying between two vehicles. Metro spokesman Jesse Roybal said the man was expected to die, so information provided to news media was written as if he had.
More big government incompetence?

The Horrible Obama Economy Continues

From Omaha (NE)Online: Hewlett-Packard Co. said Thursday that it aims to cut another 11,000 to 16,000 jobs by October, bringing the total number of planned layoffs to a maximum of 50,000 and nearly doubling the largest payroll reduction ever for the 75-year-old technology giant.
HP's move revises upward a previous target of 34,000 job cuts. In May 2012, eight months after former eBay Inc. CEO Meg Whitman took the reins, HP unveiled the chief executive's initial restructuring plan, which called for a headcount reduction of 27,000.
When the program was first announced, the company had nearly 350,000 employees. As of October, it had 317,500.
Each week, there are 300,000+ new applicants for unemployment insurnce.
That's like filling Lambeau Field in Green Bay, WI about 4-5 times with newly unemployed.
Another Obama legacy- high unemployment.

The Candy Man Can

From the Chicago Sun Times: Exit polls and early returns Monday suggested candy tycoon Petro Poroshenko was elected president of Ukraine in the first round of balloting. In taking on the leadership of the bitterly divided country, he vowed to “put an end to war, chaos, crime, and bring peace to the Ukrainian land.”
The 48-year-old billionaire who supports strong ties with Europe but also wants to mend relations with Russia claimed victory after Sunday’s vote, which took place amid weeks of fighting in eastern Ukraine where pro-Moscow separatists have seized government buildings and battled government troops.
The rebels had vowed to block the ballot in the east, and less than 20 percent of the polling stations were open there after gunmen intimidated local residents by smashing ballot boxes, shutting down polling centers and issuing threats.
But nationwide, about 60 percent of 35.5 million eligible voters turned out, the central elections commission said, and long lines snaked around polling stations in the capital, Kiev.
Hopefully, since this guy wants to work with the East and West, this may be a good outcome.
But you know this had to be the guy's campaign song, from Sammie Davis Jr.:

You just gotta love the voice of Sammie Davis Jr.

I Remember This Airplane Crash

From the Chicago Sun Times:
Sunday marks the 35th anniversary of the American Airlines Flight 191 crash just outside O’Hare Airport that claimed the lives of 271 people aboard and two on the ground.
The Los Angeles-bound jet lost its left engine on takeoff, banked left and crashed on May 25, 1979. The indelible event in Chicago history remains the worst single airplane disaster on U.S. soil.
The jet crashed near Touhy Avenue and Mount Prospect Road, just south of the of now-closed Des Plaines Oasis on the Jane Addams Tollway.
The crash happened on takeoff from runway 32-Right. The DC-10 reached just 325 feet before plummeting at 3:04 p.m. Investigators ruled a maintenance shortcut at a repair shop in Tulsa, Okla., two months earlier damaged a crucial part of the pylon that held the left engine onto the wing.
And this: The Los Angeles-bound McDonnell Douglas DC-10 jet crashed in a field off Touhy Avenue in an unincorporated area between Des Plaines and Elk Grove Village shortly after 3 p.m., moments after taking off from Chicago O'Hare International Airport....
'Nothing could prepare you'In his nearly four years as a Des Plaines firefighter, Tom Farinella hadn't experienced anything like it.
Then 26, Farinella was an acting lieutenant on Truck 81 with Des Plaines Fire Station No. 1 when the call came in that a plane had crashed.
"When we first got there, we were told that it was a cargo jet," Farinella recalled. "However, after you were on the scene and you spotted the first body or remains, there was no question that it was a passenger jet. The field was just totally ablaze because of all of the jet fuel. Nothing could prepare you for that."...
Dr. John Kenney was driving home to Des Plaines after teaching pediatric dentistry at Loyola University Medical Center in Maywood, traveling north on the Tri-State Tollway around 3:15 p.m. when the call came from American Airlines.
Kenney, who had worked for the airline from 1968 to 1972, was the first forensic dentist on the scene after the crash. He had just returned from taking a weeklong course in aircraft accident investigation at the Armed Forces Institute of Pathology in Washington, D.C.
He was part of a team of 30 dentists tapped to identify victims from charred remains. He drove to American's blue hangar at O'Hare, which later became the makeshift morgue. By 5:30 p.m., he was surveying the crash site, a scene he remembers as organized chaos.
"I was walking into a sea of death," said Kenney, who today has a pediatric dental practice in Park Ridge and is a staff member at Advocate Lutheran General Hospital, also in Park Ridge.
Today, there are federal disaster teams that work major airline crashes and other large-scale catastrophes, and portable morgues are stationed around the country. None of that existed at the time of the Flight 191 crash.
"We had to put together a morgue from scratch," he said.
One of the images that stuck with him was when Batesville Casket Co. unloaded 300 caskets. "When you saw the rows and rows of body bags lined up in the blue hangar, you got a sense of the fragility of life, and the monumental task that faced us," Kenney said.
Me and a friend were in the Chicago area, visiting a strip club.  It was my first time at a strip club and after they charged my $20 for 2 beers and a stripper tried to get her to buy drins for her, we were out of there.
Then as were driving, we were listening to the news and heard about the crash and changed the radio station of my 1970 AMC Javelin car to WBBM and listen tot he radio reports of the crash.  We were close enough to Chicago to see a little bit of smoke from the crash but not close enough to comprehend how horrible the crash was.
That day haunted me for a long time, even though we did not see the crash.  It also put the fear of flying into me.
So, now, you readers know I am afraid of guns and flying.

Ummm, No- You Need to Blame The Killer, Liberals

The left are blamng gun laws in the latest mass killings, this time in Isle Vista CA.
From Mike Lupica of the New York Daily News:
So this is Memorial Day in 2014, when we are supposed to remember and honor those who died serving this country and end up mourning the latest to die at the hands of a madman with guns in America, this time in Isla Vista, Calif., near the campus of the University of California at Santa Barbara.
Once again, the only true gun control in America is when the shooter finally puts one of his guns to his own head and blows his own brains out.
Wayne LaPierre, the gun nut who runs the National Rifle Association and is so often the face and voice of that association, likes to say that the only thing that stops a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun, as if the principal at Sandy Hook Elementary School, the late Dawn Hochsprung, could have saved herself and those children if she’d just been packing.
Read more:
Ok, let's get this out of the way, I am not a gun nut, never owned one and will never own a gun.  I am afraid of them and I am a horrible shot.  When I was in the Air Force, I set the barracks record, according to the training instructors, of the lowest score on the shooting range.
Lupica is a idiot.  3 out of 6 of the victims were stabbed to death, but apparently their deaths are not as important than the shooting victims to Lupica as he tried to make a political point.
Then, you can blame liberals and the ACLU for putting more of the dangerous mentally ill on the streets as opposed to putting them in mental or regular hospitals.  In the 1970's and 80's, the liberals fought to get the mentally out of the institutions and onto the streets of local communities.  While their motives may have sincere, like many liberal policies, it was a total failure.
Today, it is almost impossible for a person to be committed to a hospital by a 3rd party, like a family member unless the person has proven they are a danger to the community or themselves.
The family of the killer tried to get the cops and therapists involved before the killings but they didn't have much success because of the liberal policies put in by the courts and liberal laws.
So, if you want to blame a person for the killings, blame the killer, of course.
Then blame the liberals and their failed policies.

And The Killings Didn't?

Fromthe San Fran Chronicle:
Zodiac Killer suspect’s sex scandal shocks cops
There are Zodiac Killer theories and books by the trainload, but few have generated as much heat and noise as “The Most Dangerous Animal of All,” published last week — or spun a tale with as much twisted extra value. That value is a sleazy sex scandal involving the latest suspect. Several such scandals, actually.
And there’s also this: The frenzy going on right now by amateur Zodiac sleuths all over the country trying to blow holes in the latest theory has led to the possibility that the handwriting analyzed in the book is actually not even that of the suspect it purports to finger.
First, the sex. It’s that angle that helped drag the San Francisco Police Department into looking at the theory put forth by the book’s author, Gary Stewart of Louisiana, that his late father was the Zodiac Killer.
Stewart asked investigators at the department about a decade ago for records on his dad, Earl Van Best Jr., who had abandoned him as a baby and died in Mexico in 1984 without ever meeting his grown son. Stewart knew his parents had met in San Francisco, but the revelations that popped up shocked even the cops.
It turned out Van Best had a rap sheet as long as his own arm for pedophilia, fraud, rape, drunk driving and more. The marquee crime came in 1962 and was dubbed the “Ice Cream Romance” by The Chronicle. Van Best, then 28, met 14-year-old Judy Chandler that year at an ice cream parlor in San Francisco, married her, and soon wound up in prison for statutory rape.
With his record on sex crimes, the guy could have been a teacher in CCSD.

Well, I Would Thinks So

From the San Fran Chronicle: Voters in the tiny Spanish village of Castrillo Matajudios, whose name means "Camp Kill Jews," overwhelmingly decided Sunday that it's time to change the name their town has had for nearly four centuries.
Mayor Lorenzo Rodriguez said the vote was 29-19 in heavy turnout for the village with just 56 registered voters about 260 kilometers (160 miles) north of Madrid.
Documents show the town's original name was Castrillo Motajudios, meaning "Jews' Hill Camp."
The "Kill Jews" part of the name dates from 1627, more than a century after a 1492 Spanish royal edict ordering Jews to become Catholics or flee the country. Those who remained faced the Spanish inquisition, with many burned at the stake.
Although Jews were killed in the area, researchers believe the town got its current name from Jewish residents who converted to Catholicism and wanted to reinforce their repudiation of Judaism to convince Spanish authorities of their loyalty, Rodriguez said.
You would think this community would be the perfect place for the WWll Nazi to hide out.
Nah, to obvious.


From the Chicago Tribune: The White House inadvertently included the name of the top CIA official in Afghanistan on a list of participants in a military briefing with President Barack Obama that was distributed to reporters on Sunday, the Washington Post reported.
The newspaper said the official, identified as "Chief of Station" in Kabul, was named as being among those at a briefing with Obama during the president's trip to Bagram Air Base near the Afghan capital.
The list of names was sent by email to reporters traveling with Obama on his surprise Afghanistan visit and included in a "pool report" shared with correspondents and others not on the trip.
The Post said the White House issued a revised list deleting the CIA official's name after it recognized the mistake.
The newspaper said its White House bureau chief, Scott Wilson, who was on the trip, copied the original list from the email provided by White House press officials and included it in a report sent to a distribution list with over 6,000 recipients.,0,4044887.story
I wonder if the Democrats will demand an investigation into this outing by the White House like they did when Valerie Plame was supposedly outed by the George W. Bush White House? (The Bush White House didn't out her)
I won't hold my breath.
And the Obama administration has been in power for 6 years, you would think they would have learned not to do these stupid things.
It's shouldn't be amatuer hour at the White House but apparently it still is.

On Memorial Day, Remember Those Who Have Fallen

Today, Monday May 26, 23014 is Memorial in the United States and we honor those who gave thier lives to protect us.
Not only do we remember the military service members who gave the ultimate sacrafice, we also need to remember those who died protecting our communities, like the cops and firefighters.
On May 24, 2014, a Indian reservation police officer was shot and killed near Phoenix.
From the Arizona Central:
A Salt River police officer died Saturday morning after he was shot during a traffic stop.
Salt River police spokesman Detective Vicente Cendejas said the death of Jair Cabrera marks the first time that an officer in the community's police department was killed in the line of duty.
Cendejas said Cabrera stopped a vehicle around 3 a.m. on the Salt River Reservation near Chaparral and Pima roads, along the border with Scottsdale.
Cabrera made contact with the three people in the car, but one them got out and fired, striking the officer, Special Agent Perryn Collier of the FBI said.
Two people from the vehicle fled on foot, Collier said.
Officers were able to take two people in custody Saturday morning, Collier said. They are currently looking for the third person involved as a witness to the shooting. ​
The officer was taken to a hospital, where he died of his wounds.
To find a list of police officers who died in the line of duty:
For firefighters who have died in the United States:
Thank you to our military veterans, police officers and firefighters who have died protecting our country and local communities.

More ObamaCare Disaster

From the Las Vegas Sun: Nevada’s largest public hospital has borrowed $45 million in emergency loans in recent months just to make payroll for its 3,500 employees.
University Medical Center, which serves Clark County’s poor and uninsured, always has been subsidized by taxpayers, at a cost of $40 million or more annually.
But this year’s financial challenges were far worse than normal. The cause: A surge in Medicaid patients newly covered through the Affordable Care Act.
The state drastically underestimated the number of people who would enroll in Medicaid and didn’t hire enough staff to process the flood of applications.
Statewide, the number of Medicaid patients has jumped 41 percent since October when enrollment started. The state has added 130,000 new patients, bringing the total Medicaid population to 466,956. And officials still are working through a backlog.
While the state catches up, UMC has treated patients waiting for approval. Instead of cash, the hospital received IOUs from the state.
The state recently started paying those IOUs, but UMC estimates it still is behind by $10 million.
Thank you to Gov. Sandoval, President Obama, Felony Thief Dina Titus and Senile/Coward/Liar Harry Reid for giving us this disaster.

Great Indy 500 Race

Today was the grnddaddy of motor sports as Formula 1, the Indy Cars and NASCAR all put on their biggest races (exception maybe the Daytona 600, but I digress).

The Indy 500, as usual, was the most exciting race as Ryan Hunter Reay beat Helio Castroneves by .06 seconds.
The race was exciting from about 20 laps on down as there were a couple of accidents involving heavy racing and then several lead changes.
Kurt Busch, mostly of NASCAR finished 6th in his first Indy Car race but bombed out in the Coca Cola 600 where he blew an engine and finished 40th.
Speaking of bombing out, all the buzz in NASCAR this past week was about Danica Patrick having a good race in Kansas and then qualified 4th for this race.  Well, she bombed as well, finishing in 39th place, her usual finishing result.
In Formula 1, Nico Rosberg defeated Lewis Hamilton, but it is Formula 1, so who cares.

Rapper Tries To Hit Thug Mayweather

If you are going to swing at someone, it probably is not that smart idea to throw a punch at a boxing champion.
From the LVRJ:
Floyd Mayweather and T.I. (the rapper, not the hotel) appear to have got in a fight Saturday that started in a hotel and ended in a Fatburger.
What everybody is reporting: Mayweather told T.I. to control his “bitch,” possibly referring to T.I.’s wife, then T.I. went up to Mayweather at the burger joint and tried to hit the world’s greatest boxer, leading to a chair-throwing crazy time.
That’s all according to TMZ, Deadspin and everyone else who has access to YouTube/Instagram videos posted by people who were there.
Then, as you can see in the video, Mayweather drove away in the most beautiful Speed Racer/Batmobile ever. (Oh, I have car envy.)
What everyone is not reporting: Mayweather was the celebrity host Friday at a nightclub event called Prive at TW Theatre on the Strip, a spot that in the past has housed such clubs as Utopia and Krave.
T.I. was the celebrity host at TW Theatre on Saturday night, along with on/off Chris Brown girlfriend Karrueche Tran. Both events were put on by
Then both T.I. and Mayweather went to go check out some strippers, it seems, since Mayweather Instagram’d video of lady friends raining dollar bills “at the strip club,” while T.I. Tweeted a Deja Vu Showgirls strip club poster.
Channel 5 Las Vegas reported that T.I.'s wife was hanging out with Maryweather's daughter and that T.I. took a swing at Maryweather.
T.I. must not be the smartest person around, but then again, most rappers are not the brightest people in the world either.

More ObamaCare Disaster

From the New York Times: Many employers had thought they could shift health costs to the government by sending their employees to a health insurance exchange with a tax-free contribution of cash to help pay premiums, but the Obama administration has squelched the idea in a new ruling. Such arrangements do not satisfy the health care law, the administration said, and employers may be subject to a tax penalty of $100 a day — or $36,500 a year — for each employee who goes into the individual marketplace.
The ruling this month, by the Internal Revenue Service, blocks any wholesale move by employers to dump employees into the exchanges.
Under a central provision of the health care law, larger employers are required to offer health coverage to full-time workers, or else the employers may be subject to penalties.

Just wondering...
If ObamaCare is so great, then why don't allow these employers let their employees join ObamaCare?
Maybe because ObamaCare sucks?

If This Were In A Black/Hispanic Neighborhood, It Would Be Barely Be A Story

Last night, there was a stabbing/shooting incident in Isle Vista CA..  The shooter was a son of a Hollywood director and quite well off, money wise.
Apparently, he was pissed he still was a virgin, kind of like a Radar of  the MASH TV show.
So, this punk thug kills 6 people because he is a virgin and the news media from all over the world goes ape shit over these murders.
If this same incident happened in Obamaville/Chicago and in it's ghetto areas, there would be barely a peep from the media.  It might be a 45 second news story the first day or so and that would be it.
In the media, it does matter what race the actors are in these crimes.
Who do you think is more racist?  Donald Sterling or the media?
I say the media.

Old Ship Imitates Life

From the Lancaster PA Online:
SS United States, short on cash, selling propeller
A massive piece of the historic SS United States is for sale, as the conservancy trying to save the ship is running out of money and time.
The SS United States Conservancy is looking to sell a massive propeller sitting on its deck in Philadelphia.
Gee, kind of sounds like our United States government.
Out/short of cash.
Takes on debts.
Tries to sell bonds to stay afloat.
They should rename the ship the "SS Obama".

The SS Obama
