- Amanda Clayton, 25, hit headlines with keeping her food stamps when she collected $1 million from the lottery, she was found dead
Back in May, we reported on a young woman who was a food stamp recipient when she hit the lottery for a million bucks. Well, of course her next plan of action, so the state thought, would be to stop collecting food stamps. NOT! She collected her winnings and her food stamps without a second thought.
But, unfortunately, she was unable to enjoy her windfall or the government assistance for very long because she was found dead of an apparent drug overdose Saturday morning, according to the Huffington Post. Maybe someone was after her money and she was lured into some sort of drug binge. Who knows? Everything will be considered suspicious after her death.Amanda Clayton, 25, was charged with fraud and was only a few months in to her probation. According to the report, she “pleaded no contest to fraud in June and was sentenced to nine months’ probation in July.” Continue reading
Children are being abducted every day all over the world. Some of them have been taken from stores, their homes, on their way to school, but now we’re hearing that a child was abducted from a school.
On Wednesday, Sept. 12, a 13-year-old Detroit boy told authorities and school officials that he had been abducted from his school, Wayne Elementary School on Courville Street. He saw two men knocking on the door of his school and he opened the locked door for them. But, what happened next is unthinkable. The boy was snatched by the two men and taken to an abandoned house near the school and raped. Continue reading
Samuel L. Jackson (with help from his new friend Suzy) help get folks to the polls for Obama with his role in a new election ad titled “Wake the F**k Up!”
The president’s campaign is doing pretty good right now and folks want to see it stay that way in the face of those who would debase nearly half the country with their remarks that 47 percent of the country doesn’t pay taxes because they’re on welfare or some other assistance.
Well even though Samuel L. Jackson is not a part of that 47 percent he was willing to participate in an election ad sponsored by the Jewish Council for Education and Research that supports the president. Sam Jackson was probably chosen for the campaign ad because of his straight-to-the-point type style, but somehow we think that this one might not make it on to your television screen.
The video, titled “Wake the Fuck Up!”, is a cross between Spike Lee’s “School Daze” sequence where Dap runs through the campus telling students and faculty to “Wake up!” and the bedtime book that an adult better not ever read to a child called “Go the F**k to Sleep” by Adam Mansbach.

Texas Southern University loses band to hazing incident.
Hazing consists of some type of physical and/or mentally injurious action against individuals attempting to become members of a group, organization, fraternity or sorority. By now everyone is aware of the incident that occurred at Florida A&M University last year where one of the school’s band members, Robert Champion, was killed during a hazing incident. Hazing is not the intended function of those leading the potential members into their organization and when it occurs there are normally extreme repercussions. Well, obviously no one learned from the incident that resulted in a death, the president of the university’s resignation, and the band director’s termination.
Texas Southern University’s band known as the “The Ocean of Soul” is now suspended because of a similar incident involving hazing, according to Houston’s channel 11, KHOU. The university was notified of the incident Continue reading
Woman supports Obama because "He gave us a phone!"
We are always complaining about how the media finds the most crazy lookin’, half dressed, pajama wearin’, toothless, animated individual to get in front of the camera to report on incidents that occur in the neighborhood….and yes! Today is no different.
The Cleveland area should be happy that one woman decided to take her mission for Obama to the streets! But for some reason, I don’t think it will interpreted as a proud moment. During a “Romney event” in Bedford, Ohio, near Cleveland, a unidentified woman was picketing the event and telling a reporter why she is voting for Obama Continue reading

When preparing to fly, the last thing we want to think about is any interruptions or malfunctions on the flight. The turbulence on the flight can be disturbing enough…especially when it occurs onboard.
Two flight attendants were not getting along prior to a Chicago-bound United Airlines flight from Raleigh/Durham this morning. They merely brushed up against each other during the flight and all hell broke loose, according to USA Today. Continue reading
Prankster drops what is supposed to be iPhone 5's in front of waiting customers.
The iPhone craze was out of control when it hit stores last Friday, Sept. 21. People lined up in front of stores as early as Thursday afternoon. The camps in front of some of the stores looked like refugee camps for those not in need of food and water, but the newest iPhone.
But some wise guys that thought it was as crazy as we do, decided to add to the insanity by agitating the customers. They dressed up like Apple delivery men and rolled up to the lines with boxes of what the crazed fans of the phone thought was iPhone 5′s. Continue reading
