Big Boat Weekend In Lake Havasu

This weekend in Lake Havasu, The Desert Storm Poker Run is happening and this 41 footer, along with about 100 other noats, trucks, motorcycles, quads and other big boy/girl items were on display on Lake Havasu's main street.
This weekend,  on Lake Havasu, the biats will be traveling up and down the lake.
And another boat you might see is this:

Funny Fire Department Names

From Fire Rescue 1:
There are some weird town names in the U.S.
And, unfortunately, some of the strangest named towns have equally as silly fire department names as a result.
In the name of fun, we asked our Facebook fans for some of the most absurd fire department names they've heard of. We had to double check to make sure these actually existed. Turns out, they do.
Here are some of their hilarious responses.
  1. "Intercourse (Pa.) Fire Department." — Vinny Fortunato
  2. "Possum Trot (Ky.) Sharp Fire Department." — Rob Biddle
  3. "S.O.B.F.D. on the trucks for South Old Bridge Fire Department in Old Bridge, N.J." — Michael P. Fay Sr.
  4. "Flippin Fire Department in Flippin, Ark." — Kenneth Scott McNair
  5. "Cheesequake Fire Department in N.J." — Michael P. Fay Sr.
  6. "Cut 'N Shoot Volunteer Fire Department in Conroe, Texas." — Kenny Barlett
  7. "Start Fire Department in Start, La." — Sandy Anders
  8. "Smackover Volunteer Fire Department in Smackover, Ark." — Josh McKay
  9. "Embarrass Fire Department in Wis." — James Bessette
  10. "Chickenbone Fire Department in Bruce, Miss." — Larry Brown
  11. "Truth or Consequences Fire Department in N.M.” — Tim Hoerner
I'm familiar with some of the fire departments.  Who hasn't heard of Intercourse, PA?  And I've driven through Embarrass, WI.
I'm surprised the "Bird in the Hand" Fire Department wasn't mentioned along with the Climax fire departments (apparently, more than 1).
In the comment section, they mention many more.

Turmoil In The school District Where I Teach At

Tomorrow will be an interesting day at the Lake Havasu Unified Public School District/Lake Havasu High School.
There is talk of a student walk out to support the teachers who are facing a pay decrease of at least $2500-3000 from their paychecks over a 9 month period of time, mostly due to insurance premium increases.  The teachers also have not had a raise in over 8 years.
So, several hundred students plan on walking out of class at 11:00, but since Thursday is an early release day, they will be missing only 1 hour of class time.
In my 19 years of teaching, I have never been involved in this kind of action by students, so it will interesting to see what happens.
In Lake Havasu, this is a huge story, in Mohave County, it's an important story, in Arizona, it's mildly interesting and in the U.S., it probably won't even be a mention in any news stories.

You Know When You Live In A Small City When...

You get arrested for assault with a deadly weapon...a banana.
From the Lake Havasu News Herald: Travis Ramsey, 21, of Lake Havasu City was arrested on assault and disorderly conduct charges at a residence on Indian Peak Drive on April 10.
Police say Ramsay verbally threatened a female victim and threw a banana at her, striking her in the chest and head.
The female told police she did not have any injuries.

Life is Not A Video Game And Crime Is Not A Farmer's Market

You can only shake your head and wonder if the family involved watches a lot of video games and watch reality TV.
From the Kingman Daily Miner: Andrew Granados is not happy with the prospect of spending the next two or three decades in prison. Not many people would be, but for Granados, who doesn't turn 17 until this summer, 30 years behind bars likely seems like a fate far worse than death.
He's also learning the hard way that the Constitution affords him rights to an attorney and to a fair trial - but he doesn't get to pick his attorney and he has no right to a plea deal.
Granados is one of three defendants accused in a home invasion Jan. 27 that led to a woman being shot, her dog being injured, and her money and her car stolen. He stands accused of attempted murder and other felony counts and is one of two juveniles in the case who has been charged as an adult. Samuel Jacob Bravo, 15, and Ashlin Gene Whitesinger, 18, also face multiple felony charges.
Granados was in court with his attorney Ron Gilleo on Monday, and he didn't like what Judge Lee Jantzen or prosecutor Jacob Cote had to say.
Gilleo told Jantzen he and Granados received the proposed plea agreement just minutes before Granados was scheduled to change his plea to guilty. Gilleo asked for a one-month postponement.
Jantzen said he received a note from Granados, who has been in the Mohave County jail since shortly after the incident, in which he is requesting a new attorney.
In fact, Granados and his family have a specific attorney in mind.
"You don't have a right to pick your attorney," said Jantzen. "You have the right to an attorney, but you don't get to pick one. And you're not entitled to a plea offer. You're entitled to a fair trial."
Gilleo said Granados' parents are under the belief that "you never take the first plea offer," taking the same approach one would take in purchasing a used car.
"I haven't yet put a deadline on the plea offer," said Cote, warning such offers can be taken off the table after a period of time. "I have no plans to make a more generous offer."....

Speaking in general terms and not specifically about Granados, Gilleo said juveniles who commit serious offenses often don't understand the reality of the criminal justice system.
"They ask me if I think they'll get six months in county jail," said Gilleo. "I tell them they'll be lucky to get 10 years."
Civics lessons have pretty much disappeared from the curriculum of public schools and it doesn't help that you have individuals and families who probably sit around the house and play video games and watch the latest episodes of the Kardashians.  Drugs and alcohol probably are thrown in for good measure.
This little thug will be lucky get 20-30 years in prison considering the charges he is facing.

Sounds Like Sound Advice

From Fox News: Fearing Snapchat could take an ugly turn toward "snap chomp," police are warning people not to take selfies with an alligator in suburban Atlanta.

AJC @ajc Apr 25
Stop taking alligator selfies with ‘Flat Creek Floyd,’ police say
Peachtree City police also advise residents not to feed the 6-foot gator known as "Flat Creek Floyd" as he soaks in the sun on Flat Creek, about 30 miles southwest of downtown Atlanta.
Peachtree City police Lt. Mark Brown tells WSB-TV that the gator's presence has "gone a little crazy" on social media.
Police say that when Floyd was spotted earlier this month, it was the first alligator sighting in the area in five years. Gators are common in parts of south Georgia, but are not usually seen in metro Atlanta.
I remember when I lived in Montana a guy got eaten by a grizzly bear after the ate up fellow took pictures of the said hungry bear.
The last picture of the hamburger looking chap was the bear standing on his rear paws and looked like the bear was growling...or the bear was saying "Darwin award winner, they are tasty and it's time to eat".

John And Ted...Please Go Away

Now that Ted Cruz and John Kasich have been eliminated from the GOP primary by Donald Trump,  will you two men go quietly into the night?
Ted, you ran a good campaign and put up a spirited fight, but it wasn't meant to be.
John, I have no idea why you insist on running, you wouldn't even win in a contested convention.  All you are doing is getting fat eat all that fatty and calorie laden food.
So, Ted, please exit stage right and take John with you, if only to shut up Mark Levin.  Staying in the race makes you look bitter and if you need to run in 2020, getting out now makes you look more dignified.

Sounds About Right

From AOL News: A prominent Ku Klux Klan leader says that the group has raised thousands of dollars for Hillary Clinton's campaign and that the Klan is officially endorsing the Democratic frontrunner for president—a claim the Clinton campaign vigorously denies.
Shortly after setting a giant cross on fire with dozens of other members of various white nationalist groups in Georgia on Saturday, Will Quigg, a Grand Dragon in a California branch of the KKK, sat down with Vocativ—which was there for a larger reporting trip about the modern state of the hate group—to talk about the 2016 election. According to Quigg, "For the KKK, Clinton is our choice."
"She is friends with the Klan," Quigg said. "A lot of people don't realize that. She's friends with Senator [Robert] Byrd. He's been an Exulted Cyclops in the Klan. He's been King Kleagle." (King Kleagle is another KKK title for the leader of an entire "realm," or state. Quigg is the King Kleagle for California.) Robert Byrd is a former U.S. senator from West Virginia. In the 1940s, Byrd organized and served as the leader of a Klan chapter in West Virginia. Byrd has long since disavowed the Klan and called his involvement "wrong." In 2010, Hillary Clinton called Senator Byrd a "friend and mentor." 
"She is friends with the Klan," Quigg said. "A lot of people don't realize that. She's friends with Senator [Robert] Byrd. He's been an Exulted Cyclops in the Klan. He's been King Kleagle." (King Kleagle is another KKK title for the leader of an entire "realm," or state. Quigg is the King Kleagle for California.) Robert Byrd is a former U.S. senator from West Virginia. In the 1940s, Byrd organized and served as the leader of a Klan chapter in West Virginia. Byrd has long since disavowed the Klan and called his involvement "wrong." In 2010, Hillary Clinton called Senator Byrd a "friend and mentor."
Before you laugh, look at the history of the democrat Party.
They are the party of racism and they continue to be racists, to this day.
The Democrats are the party of slavery and the KKK.
They Democrats opposed the voting rights acts.
The Democrats are the home of KKK Grand wizard, Robert Byrd.
And today, they are the party of gangsters and thugs who terrorize minority neighborhoods.
The Democrats are against school choice and support poor education of the poor and minorities, the new slavery.
The Democrats support illegal immigrants who have caused chaos and calamity in minority neighborhoods.
So, for the KKK to come out and say they support Democrats, all they are saying is "We're back, did you miss us".
And yes, the democrats do miss their old hooded buddies.

Las Vegas=Chicago?

Chicago is cold, humid, most of the town is old and they are having gang wars resulting in large amounts of murders.
Las Vegas is hot, dry, new and are in a middle of gang warfare resulting in large amounts of murders.
What's happening in Vegas?
From the LVRJ:
Sherri Ficklin’s 24-year-old nephew was shot dead just after midnight Sunday — one of five fatal shootings the valley saw last weekend.
But as she gathered with friends and family Sunday night to mourn Javarrious Eequinn Brown, they couldn’t even grieve in peace; a few shooters ignited the vigil in gunfire as the group lit candles near Pecos Road and Washington Avenue, sending people running and promptly ending the event.
The level of violence Ficklin experienced was echoed throughout the valley this past weekend, which marked a 100 percent increase in homicides compared with that time last year. As of Saturday, Las Vegas police were investigating 56 homicides, compared with 28 as of the same date a year ago.
Of the four others shot dead this past weekend, two were teens: Angelo Barboza, 15, and Benjamin Andre Soley, 17. That short span of homicides was also bookended by a shooting early Friday that killed Aaron Jordan, 18, and a stabbing about noon Monday that left another man dead.
“Obviously it’s a huge concern to the department,” Metro spokesman Larry Hadfield said. Officials plan to formally address the public about the crescendo of killings sometime this week.
The most violent of incidents last weekend happened early Saturday at the Hollywood Recreation Center, just a block away from Harney Middle School. The center exploded in 50 rounds of gunfire after a fight about 3:30 a.m., and police said the aftermath left 15-year-old Barboza dead, four others injured from either stab or gunshot wounds, and one juvenile arrested.
Almost everyone involved was a teenager, police said.
At the same park Monday afternoon, Steven Scalzo took a break from tossing a baseball with his children just across from a candlelit memorial for Barboza to talk about the fight.
“Kids these days ain’t kids anymore,” he said.
Metro homicide Lt. Dan McGrath said that’s because many kids are finding and firing guns.
Aside from the teens killed in the last few days, McGrath mentioned a recent case where a 16-year-old was arrested on a murder charge. To detectives’ disbelief, the child asked “when he could go” because he was “due to start a new job in the next few days.”
I've been writing about murders in Las Vegas for at least 4 years in this blog, when Betty Pinkney, a student at Desert Pines H.S., and someone I knew, was shot and killed at a party and everyone at the party and their friends and family decided that they wouldn't be snitches.  Some links to these stories:

There are a lot things at play in Las Vegas and has similar things with Chicago.
First, the City of Las Vegas and the Las Vegas Valley are run by Democrats/liberals.  Just like most large cities that are run by liberals/Democrats, the gang members know this is where to come and they know that there will be little or no consequences for minor crimes and the only real consequences for their actions won't happen until they commit murder or numerous felonies.  They also know that there is plenty of welfare money to live on with little or no pressure to get off welfare.
2nd is that is there leadership in Chicago or Las Vegas, especially minority leadership.  Religious leaders are almost non-existent and Black leadership is just not there.  In Chicago, they have the criminal Jesse Jackson as their moral leader.  If Jackson is your leader, then you have no leader.
In Las Vegas, they have no leaders whatsoever.  And forget about Obama, who is from Chicago and still has a house there being protected by the secret service 24/7.  Things have gotten so much worse under Obama, for minorities, it's maddening.
3rd, Blacks and Hispanics hate the cops in Chicago and Vegas, until you need 1 and then it's too late.
4th, both cities are welcoming illegal aliens to their communities, without any vetting and many of these illegals are committing crimes, especially in their own communities.
The list can go on and on but you get the point, These murders and violent crimes are the result of liberal policies, lack of leadership and the welcoming of thousands and thousands of illegals to their cities.
And nothing will stop these murders until the problems listed are solved: Conservative leadership of government leaders and religious leaders, deporting the illegals or at least those who break even the most minor of infractions, like speeding or a parking ticket, more respect for the cops and vice versa, get rid of the bad cops and put limits on welfare money so that only the truly needy gets the benefits.

Just Wondering

As the news gets worse and worse about Hillary Clinton and her e-mail treason.
So, if she is convicted, a fine won't persuade her to do things differently, so jail time should be an option.
So, I am just wondering:

If Hillary is sentenced to jail, does the Secret Service have to protect her while she is in jail?
Do they have to share the same jail cell, or do they have a little cell next to hers, so they can protect her if Miss Butch decides to have their way with her?

Another Reason Not To Shop At Kmart

So, you think the employees at Kmart are just as healthy as can be, right bucko?
Well, no, that's not correct, sir.
Unless you are dying of cancer or a heart attack or something else that is deadly, Kmart will write you up for calling in sick.
Got the chicken pox.  Too bad, that's a write up.
Got a contagious disease you better show up to work.
Got the cold and flu. So what, pasd it on to the customer, Kmart couldn't care less.
Sprained ankle or knee. Tough it out, big boy.
The unions are trying to unionize Wal-Mart but they should go for Kmart employees.
Oh, wait, Kmart has no money.

I Should Write A Diet Book

Some people will write a diet book after they loose 10 pounds.  Some people will make millions of dollars if they lost 30 pounds plus they name a diet after themselves.
In August, just before my new teaching job started, I weighed 330 pounds because just before that I just worked at Kmart at about 15-20 hours a week.
When Christmas rolled around, I wrighed about 315.
When i got sick about 5 weeks ago, I was at 306.  2 weeks later, I was at 285.
Tonight, I weighed in at 275.
So, since August, I have lost about 55 pounds. I haven't lost this weight by joining a weight club, went on a diet, counted my calories etc..
The only things I've done is exercise, significantly cut down on my beer and eat significantly less.  I eat less because there are times when I don't feel like eating.
Plus I  continue to exercise.
So, can I write a book and name a diet after me?
What should I name the book and diet?
Maybe "The LVBadger "I  don't care about diet" Diet".

Mark Levin Insanity Continues

1 day after the Ted Cruz shellacking in New York state, Mark Levin has started to act like a wild boar after it's been shot...out of control and acting in a bizarre fashion.
Levin gave hell to Jon Kasich for not dropping out of the GOP nomination race. But now that Cruz has been virtually eliminated from winning the GOP race, now Levin says Cruz should stay in the race because Cruz is the only conservative left and Levin says Cruz should stay for moral purposes.
Ummm, ok Mark, I guess you don't see yhe hypocrisy.
Like I said yesterday,  Levin has been paid off by the Cruz campaign, so I guess Levin will say anything if the price is right.

Biggest Lie Of The Year

(Burlington Liars Club)
The past couple of weeks, radio stations from NPR (National Public Radio, the official liberal spokesman for Obama and Hillary) had been conducting it's semi yearly (monthly) pledge drive.
One of the compelling reasons, they stated to give money to this pro-liberal government agency/radio station, was because they cover news items and this election fairly and they will be balanced.

Like when they use a Hillary Clinton Super Delegate to comment and report on the GOP and their convention.
And when they used the same person to report on Donald Trump and Ted Cruz?
And the same person to report on Bernie Sanders?

Ted Cruz actually did an interview on NPR a few months ago (what was he thinking?) but they spliced up the interview to make him look like some kind of ogre, which probably is the view of him in liberal quarters

So, maybe NPR and their radio stations can enter the Burlington (WI) Liars Club 2016 biggest lie contest.
They probably won't have any competition. 

So, You Want To Become A Firefighter?

This video may scare the crap out of you, like it did the firefighter across the river fromt he camera person.

The Truth Between Mark Levin And Ted Cruz

Mark Levin and Ted  Cruz are such a close item that I think Levin and Cruz they probably share several vtal organs.
It wasn't always this way.
Way back in December or so and Levin was singing the praises of Donald Trump and now he just hates Trump, or so he says.
So, what happened?
In and December, Levin was torn between Cruz and Trump.
And then the large Cruz PAC (I forget the name) purchased large amkounts of advertising on Levin's show, which played several times a show, sometimes a couple of times an hour, for at least a couple of months, st least through the New Hampshire primary.
And when the advertising stopped,  then came the glowing endorsement and subsequent obsession with Cruz and increasing vitrol aimed at Trump and his supporters.
The money also came at a time when Levin was lining up money to bein Levin TV, thjough we didn't know it at the timem
I used to be a big fan of Levin but no more. His comments about Trump are virtually word for word the same as liberal reporters and talk show hosts.
Son from my perspective,  Levin has been bought and paid for by the Cruz campaign, showing once again why Cruz is not a credible GOP candidate for president.

I Took The Math ACT College Practice Test Today.....

Can you get a negative score on the ACT math test?

And You Thought You Had A Crappy Job

Dog Poo HideAKey
I work as a teacher during the night and poop cleaner at Kmart at night, or so it seems.
I have worked at the Kingman, AZ. Kmart for about 1 1/2 years now and in that time, I have had to clean the bathroom where a person has pooped on the floor 4 times during this time, including a very bad mess last Thursday.
And then on Friday, on my day off, another employee had clean up another poopy spill.
And of course, Kmart will not get us any biomedical/hazardous spill clean up equipment.
And you thought your day was crappy.

Too Funny

From Fox News:
Tens of thousands of voters, including high-profile celebrities such as Kaley Cuoco, Demi Moore and Emma Stone, have accidentally registered as members of a small conservative party in California, according to a new survey.
The Los Angeles Times said that a telephone survey of 500 members of the American Independent Party found nearly three of four members did not realize they had enrolled in a political party that opposes abortion rights and same-sex marriage and calls for building a fence along the southern U.S. border.
The newspaper said voters were confused by the use of the word "independent" in the party's name. In California, voters who do not want to register with any party must check a box on a registration form for "no party preference."
This mistake could prevent people from casting their votes in California’s June 7 primary.
The Times reported that those who made the mistake include celebrities like Moore, Cuoco, Stone and Sugar Ray Leonard. Moore has contributed money to and campaigned for President Obama, the Associated Press reported.
"Demi Moore is not, nor has ever been, a member of the American Independent Party," a representative for Moore told the Times.
Umm, Demi, if you registered for the AIP, you joined that party.  You may not support it, but you and others were so too stupid that you actually did join it.

Thank You, ObamaCare

Well, I'm have to sit down and contemplate life, or at least my next possible job.
The school district where I teach at has decided to raise my family health insurance premiums.
My monthly premium will be about $1100.
That's about $35 a day for health insurance.  Everyday, for 365 days a year.
Take my pension contribution, which is 12% of my check.
Then Federal, State and Social Security and we are talking about 2/3 of my paycheck is gone before I pay my bills, rent, food bills etc.
A big reason for the increase?
Among other things, I am paying for my 64 year old aide's pregnancy.
And she is paying for other older aide's pregnancy.
And my prostrate exam.
And my wife's pregnancy that will never come.
And the list can go on.
And I thought ObamaCare was supposed to save us money.
And now, I might have to quit my job because I cannot pay for my health insurance premiums.

Another Failed Liberal Policy

From the LA Times: Los Angeles was once the epicenter of apparel manufacturing, attracting buyers from across the world to its clothing factories, sample rooms and design studios.
But over the years, cheap overseas labor lured many apparel makers to outsource to foreign competitors in far-flung places such as China and Vietnam.
Now, Los Angeles firms are facing another big hurdle — California's minimum wage hitting $15 an hour by 2022 — which could spur more garment makers to exit the state.
Last week American Apparel, the biggest clothing maker in Los Angeles, said it might outsource the making of some garments to another manufacturer in the U.S., and wiped out about 500 local jobs. The company still employs about 4,000 workers in Southern California.
The exodus has begun," said Sung Won Sohn, an economist at Cal State Channel Islands and a former director at Forever 21. "The garment industry is gradually shrinking and that trend will likely continue."
In the last decade, local apparel manufacturing has already thinned significantly. Last year, Los Angeles County was home to 2,128 garment makers, down 33% from 2005, according to Bureau of Labor Statistics data. During that period, employment also plunged by a third, to 40,500 workers. Wages, meanwhile, jumped 17% adjusting for inflation, to $698 per week — although that can include pay for top executives, as well as bonuses, tips and paid vacation time.
Many apparel companies say Los Angeles is a difficult place to do business. Commercial real estate is expensive and limited, the cost of raw materials continues to rise and it can be difficult to find skilled workers who can afford to live in the city. They expect things will become even more challenging after the minimum-wage hike further raises their expenses.
So, the liberals say "raise the minimum and all will be right with the world".
Tell that to the people in Los Angeles who already have and those who will lose their jobs because of the $15 minimum wage in California.

Why I Am Not Blogging More Often

I realize I am not posting as often.  It's not that I don't like to, it's a few things are going on.
1.  I am really tired of the politics going on right now.  I am tired of trump, Cruz, never interested been in Kasich and Sanders and a little about Clinton I am sure many of you are tired of reading/watching all of the politics 24/7.  Quite frankly, I am tired of all the elections, other to see who wins.  I really don't care about all the analysis from people who are on TV or radio who also want to sell you their latest book.
2. I am also tired of conservative talk radio.  Right now, I am just getting slammed by these hosts who have their favorite candidate and then talk about nothing else, except praising their candidate and slamming others.  Yes, Mark Levin, I am especially talking about you.
3.  I am just tired.  Besides teaching, I also work another job, so I work about 60-75 hours a week along with 10 hours of commute time each week, so I am tired.
4.  I have done a ton of paperwork at school the past few weeks and the last thing I want to see is a keyboard when I get home.
5.  I am still recovering from my illness about a month ago.  To quote the band War and "Why Can't We Be Friends " , "Sometimes I don't speak right, But yet I know what I'm talking about", I am still having some side effects from the high blood pressure, with this being the main complication, though "I am feeling much better now" quoting Buddy in Night Court.
So, I am sorry about the lack of posts, it will get better soon, I promise.
And here is pretty funny video of war and "Why Can't we be Friends".

Good For Menards

From the Times Recorder:  NEW PHILADELPHIA Construction of a Menards facility on Bluebell Drive will be delayed for about a year as the owners of the privately owned Menard Inc. wait to see the outcome of the November general election.Mayor Joel Day said he spoke with Rodney Wekkin, Ohio's real-estate developer for Menard Inc., about the wait."That's on the delay list now," Day said. "He said it's been delayed for a year."Jessie O'Mara, a spokesperson for Menard Inc., wrote in an email to The Times-Reporter that the family owned company is feeling anxious about building more facilities during the current Presidential administration. "We are a family owned business and with the Obama Administration scaring the dickens out of all family businesses in the U.S.A at present and with no certainty if the next administration will be any better, we have decided not to risk expansion until things are more settled," O'Mara wrote.Day referred to the delay as a disappointment."I've always said that none of these kind of developments are for certain until you see the first shovel of dirt overturned," he said.At the local level, Day added, it's hard to imagine how the uncertainty of a presidential election could affect a decision to build a store, but in the corporate world such things do play a role.Construction of the new Menards store was originally expected to begin no later than June 2016, and be completed by June 2017.In March 2015, developers Aaron Shanklin and Mike Miller, who own Infinity Representatives in New Philadelphia, sold the property housing a former Super Kmart to Menards Inc. The home improvement company will build its store at the former Super Kmart site. The vacant, dilapidated Kmart building was demolished last August.
The company has no obligation to anyone except the Menard family to build anywhere in the U.S. or elsewhere.
And of course, The Obama economy has been horrible for most businesses since Obama took over as president.
So, good for Menards to say no to a non-right to work in Ohio and maybe if John Kasich (Ohio governor and presidential candidate) was really a conservative, like say a Scott Walker, he would demand to make Ohio a right to work state.

Typical Liberal Hypocrits

Image result for funny picture of a hypocrite
From Todd Starnes and Fox News:
PayPal, the website known for processing online payments, believes grown men have a constitutional right to use the same bathrooms as little girls.
So when North Carolina Gov. Pat McCrory signed a bill that banned people from using bathrooms not assigned to their birth sex, PayPal became enraged and retaliated.
They canceled plans to open a new operations center in Charlotte – a facility that would’ve employed more than 400 workers.
“The new law perpetuates discrimination and it violates the values and principles that are at the core of PayPal’s mission and culture,” CEO Dan Schulman wrote in a memorandum on the company’s website.
That’s what a corporate bully looks like, folks. Conform to the demands of radical cultural militants or pay the price.
“It is corporate blackmail,” Lt. Gov. Dan Forest told me.
But PayPal is not just a big business bully – they are also hypocrites.
“PayPal does business in 25 countries where homosexual behavior is illegal, including five where the penalty is death,” NC Rep. Robert Pittenger wrote on Facebook. “Yet, they object to the North Carolina legislature overturning a misguided ordinance about letting men into the women’s bathroom?”
Yes, they do, congressman.
“Perhaps PayPal would like to try and clarify this seemingly very hypocritical position,” he suggested.
I asked PayPal to explain why they were doing business in countries that slaughter gay people – but they did not return my calls or emails.
In Georgia, Mississippi, Arkansas and Indiana – religious liberty bills have come under attack from a number of Fortune 500 companies – from Coca-Cola and Delta Airlines to UPS and Marriott Hotels.
But the American Family Association says what’s shocking is that all of those companies opposing religious liberty in the name of LGBT rights are operating in countries where gays are facing fines and imprisonment.
So, why do liberals give breaks to countries and world leaders who have a huge hatred of homosexuals and homosexuality?
Why do these liberal hypocrites do business with these countries but refuse to do business in North Carolina, who basically said that perverted men may not go in the same bathroom as young girls/women?
None of these companies mentioned, like Pepsi, PayPal,

Another Reason Hillary Is In Trouble

Hillary 2016
Even though the media says Hillary will become our next president because she is a woman, her biggest asset, there are signs that Hillary is in big trouble.
Take, for instance, the Wisconsin primary.
Bernie Sanders kicked Hillary's butt.
He won with 567,000 votes to Hillary's 432,000 votes.
He won with 56% of the vote to Hillary's 43%.
Bernie beat Hillary in each of Wisconsin's 72 counties- 72-0 Bernie wins the counties.
Lately, Wisconsin has gone Democrat in the presidential elections.
In the primary, the GOP got 1,072,000 voters out.
The Democrats only got 1,001,000 voters out in this primary.
And this scenario is repeating itself all over the country.  Hillary has lost the 6 out of 7 primaries/caucuses and has lost 16 states and territories and has won only 20 elections. 
How bad is this?  Hillary was supposed to have the nomination all wrapped in 2 weeks.
But now she has a tick named Bernie Sanders who is giving her a run for her money.

What's Behind Door #1, Bob?

This morning, I was listening to the Clinton Radio Network aka NPR, where the only time they have news about Hillary Clinton is when they have good news about her and the only news they have about Bernie Sanders is bad.  And they were talking about Hillary and Bernie when they had a Clinton mouthpiece on as a guest.
And the guest said the only difference between the 2, Bernie and Hillary, is how long it will take to implement Bernie's/Hillary's plans on ripping off the taxpayer and given all the stolen money to the poor, drug users, illegal immigrants, minorities, children and everybody else under the sun except white people.
Bernie wants it done quickly.
Hillary wants it to happen fairly quickly.
Behind door #1 is a old white guy.
Behind door #2, you have an old white woman
And behind #3 are a bunch of confused democrat voters who are say: "Is this all we have to choose from?"

Huge Fire On Route 66

From the Havasu News Herald:
The Topock fire has burned 15 acres, according to authorities on scene.
A mandatory evacuation order includes Pirate's Cove. Jeff Allen, spokesman for the San Bernardino County Fire Department, says there is a road closure at Interstate 40 and Park Moabi Road. I-40 is still open at Park Moabi, but the off-ramps to Park Moabi are closed.
Chip Venezio, general manager at Topock66 Resort at 14999 Historic Route 66 said as of 10:10 a.m. the fire doesn't appear to be a threat to the resort that sits along the Colorado River to the south of Park Moabi. That could change, however, if wind direction changes, he said.
EARLIER: NEEDLES, CALIF. -- Winds swept a fire that began in Arizona across the Colorado River causing evacuations of Park Moabi Resort at 100 Park Moabi Road in Needles, Calif., according to Jeff Allen, a public information officer with the San Bernardino County Fire Department.
Allen could not confirm if the adjacent Pirate Cove Marina and Resort was also included in the evacuations. Both parks are included in the San Bernardino County’s Moabi Regional Park.
Allen was also unable to immediately provide a location of where the fire was first reported on the Arizona side at around 5 a.m. this morning.
I am working in Lake Havasu and we are at least 15 miles from the fire and we can easily see and smell the smoke from the fire.  The smoke is going south, down the Colorado River and I am sure you can see the smoke from the fire about Parker, about 45 miles from the fire.
Based on the scanner feeds, there are few, if any local fire departments fighting the fire, but I could be wrong.
The wind is blowing around 20-35 mph, so this fire is not going to be put out soon.
Update from AZ central:   A brush fire that started in western Arizona and jumped the Colorado River into California forced residents of two rural RV parks to evacuate Wednesday, authorities said.
The blaze, named the Pirate Fire, has burned at least 500 acres of salt cedars, mesquite and river-bottom vegetation on both sides of the river, with 450 acres involved in Arizona and 50 in California, according to the San Bernardino County Fire District.
It was reported at 4:30 a.m. in the Havasu National Wildlife Refuge, which spans both states.

Umm, To Pay For Lawyer Fees?

From Twitter

Austin Russell @chumlee_ Mar 7
my shoes collection will be for sale on eBay for the next few months time to get ride of a lot
So, Chumlee is going to sell off his extensive collection of shoes.
If you ever watched "Pawn Stars", you know Chumlee has a huge and expensive shoe collection.
And now he is selling the collection.
Gee, I wonder why?
Perhaps to pay for a lawyer to keep him from prison due to his extensive and expensive drug collection?

Wisconsin: You're Just Not That Important

Tomorrow is the Wisconsin presidential primary.
Even though the media is making a big deal, it really isn't that important.
Being from Wisconsin, I appreciate the coverage and seeing some of the sites I used visit.
But Wisconsin just is not all that important.
There are only 42 delegates at stake and it is a winner take all state, which is a small amount.
The only reason it is getting attention is because this has been the only primary in 2 weeks and the media is bored.
However, when Pennsylvania and New York and California have their primaries, then that will be a big deal.
So, sorry Wisconsin, enjoy your spotlight now because it will be over Wednesday when the circus leaves town.

The Nevada Highway Patrol has found Twitter and now they are posting a picture along with a brief description of a fatal or major accident, with an hour or two after the accident occurred.

(Nevada Highway Patrol/Twitter)
The crash happened around 8:00AM and they posted the picture and story at 8:39, about 40 minutes after it happened.
So, it is possible that NHP put out the picture and perhaps a family member or friend happen to be looking at the NHP Twitter feed and happen to see this photo, well before anyone was notified of the accident.  Then they might have seen that a loved one crashed and died.  Or worse, what if the family member or friend sees a motorcycle or car similar to the crashed car and they believed their loved was the one killed but in reality, they are safe and sound.
Yes, the public have the right to know what is happening, but does the NHP have to be so forthcoming that it cause needless hardship on families or friends of the victim?

Look: A Big Arena Paid For By A Company-No Taxpayer Support

When a professional team says they need a arena or stadium and they say they need taxpayer support, tell them to look at the new MGM arena in Las Vegas.
From the LVRJ:
The big day is finally arriving!
On Wednesday, MGM Resorts International and Anschutz Entertainment Group open the T-Mobile Arena with a concert by The Killers.
We all know what that means: higher numbers of clueless people trying to find their way around; incessant whining about having to pay for parking; more idle threats from people who say they will never patronize MGM again — until, of course, a big event that the complainers really want to see is scheduled.
MGM and AEG built the arena in a reasonable short time and probably a few million dollars less than if taxpayers help pay some of the costs.
So, yes, there may be some complaining from locals from Vegas about paying for parking but they would howl even more if everyone was asked to help for the arena through their taxes.

The Real Hillary Scandal...According To Liberal Media

From the NY Daily News: Hillary Clinton showed her wild side at an LGBT event at SoHo's Capitale, where the presidential wannabe sported a leather jacket, boasted about her Democratic-leading campaign and ran a red light on her way out.
Stars including Rosie O'Donnell, Billie Jean King and former Rep. Barney Frank — celebrating his 76th birthday were all in the house as Hill went on a roll....

"Then she and her five-car caravan ran the red lights at Grand and Green (Streets)!" we're told. "She's already enjoying the benefits of being president — they did stop to look both ways, then went right through."
The Daily News is one of the worst newspaper in the United states...or anywhere.  It is a hate filled newspaper, especially towards the GOP and people who support gun rights.  They employ a gaggle of racists and extremists who pretend they are reporters or columnists.
And in their feeble little racist/extremist minds, Hillary running red lights is big time news for them and they only thing they could find bad about her.
The fact that Hilary is about to be interviewed by the FBI about her e-mail scandal is a non-news story.
