Tamir Rice, 12, Killed By OH. Cop: Petition Wants New Prosecutor

Tamir Rice, 12
Tamir Rice, 12

*The unjust killing of 12-year-old Tamir Rice on November 22, 2014 by a cop in Cleveland may be off the front pages of the news, but make no mistake, the story is not a forgotten one. Rice was shot to death as he played in a recreation center park; by a cop who mistook his toy gun for a real one. Now his family wants to make sure justice is served, and that young Tamir’s death will not end up being just another black boy in the ground — while the cop that put him there walks free.

They have every right to be concerned. Its been an entire year and Cuyahoga County Prosecutor Timothy McGinty is only now presenting the case before a Grand Jury to determine if charges will even be filed against the cop. Add to that two “reviews” done by “specialists” who say the cop was justified…and they didn’t even perform an interview. Continue reading

This Woman Glued Her Eye Shut With Crazy Glue!

Don't try this at home!!!
Don’t try this at home!!!

*Between my contact lenses and my seasonal allergies, I use eye drops almost daily. I certainly grab them when something blows up into my eye. I can’t imagine my reaction if a friend mistakenly grabbed Crazy Glue and handed it to me, answering my request for Visine.

That’s what happened to Katherine Gaydos of Lantana, Florida, after a piece of debris from a leaf blower blew into her eye last week, television station WPBF reported. She asked a friend to retrieve her eye drops from her purse, but she returned with a small bottle of the type of glue that’s used to apply artificial nails or tips.

Since this all happened in the great state of Florida, there’s only one thing I can say about all of that:

Rupert Murdock…Seriously? You’re Going to Define Whose ‘Really Black’

Rupert Murdoch
Rupert Murdoch

*Rupert Murdoch may look like a man with only one foot out of the grave, but his typing fingers seem to be going strong. Now he is apologizing for a tweet he sent out making a snide swipe at President Barack Obama while giving a thumbs up to 2016 presidential candidate, black republican, Ben Carson.

Murdoch’s tweet referred to the need to have a “real” black president in the White House.

Well, as you can imagine, that didn’t sit too well with many people, including Star Jones, who tweeted:

“The day I start allowing @rupertmurdoch to define what it is to be #black …is the day I turn in my #blackcard.”

According to the Daily News, on Thursday morning as Murdoch awakened to what must have been an onslaught of backlash to his original tweet, he wrote:

“Apologies! No offence meant. Personally find both men charming.”

Charming? It doesn’t get more typical than that.  Continue reading

Mexican Politician Suggests ‘Lethal Injection’ To End Homeless Problem

*Well this certainly won’t help change the abrasive attitudes around the immigration issue here in the states. And its definitely not a good look for someone calling themselves a politician. But apparently Olga Gutierrez Machorro, a Mexican Councillor and member of the local government in Tecamachalco, Mexico, thinks the solution for the homeless problem — in her country at least — is murder.

More aptly put, she suggests they be killed by lethal injection.

Needless to say, people are outraged.

She then added that it would be “kinder.” Continue reading

Is ‘Clock Boy’ Ahmed Mohamed Facing Jealousy Issues From His School…The Media?

*It’s a legitimate question. Apparently it wasn’t enough that Ahmed Mohamed, the Muslim student who brought his makeshift clock “invention” to school in a briefcase, was humiliated and arrested because officials suspected it was a bomb; then freed when they found out it wasn’t. His mere existence is still causing fingers to move on keyboards across America.

Envious heads turned like someone possessed when Mohamed was invited to bring his “cool clock” to the White House. And now, seething in the fact that the MacArthur High School student hasn’t been sitting at home twirling his thumbs and suffering from depression since he walked away from the Irving, Texas campus,  The Dallas Morning News  is reporting that “according to Texas school officials,” the 14-year-old has a folder this thick showing he has been a discipline problem since way back.

Why don’t they leave this kid alone? 

No worries though. Mohamed ain’t thinking about his hater. Last message he left is he’s out of the office until further notice. The teen is said to have gone on a grand tour of the U.N. earlier this week. And soon, he and his family will board a private jet to Qatar where he will be treated like royalty.

Now that should give the haters a real headache. Continue reading

Sarah Palin: “…I’m the Queen of England”


*Who keeps giving Sarah “You can see Russia from my house!” Palin an open mic???

I hesitated to even fill you in on this, as we continue to extend the former Alaska governor and vice presidential nominee’s 15 minutes of fame, which was 14 minutes and 59 seconds longer than it should have been in the first place.  But this one takes the proverbial cake.

This time around, Palin’s taking aim at Ahmed Mohamed, the ninth grader who brought a homemade clock made from a pencil box to school and got arrested, because the clock could have been a bomb, the Huffington Post reports.

“Yep, believing that’s a clock in a school pencil box is like believing Barack Obama is ruling over the most transparent administration in history,” Palin wrote in a Facebook post. “Right. That’s a clock, and I’m the Queen of England.” Continue reading

*Its the first time any sitting president has done this. But then again, we are talking about President Barack Obama. POTUS set out on a historic tour to visit the El Reno Federal Correctional Institution in Oklahoma. He walked in with that familiar swagger; a “How y’all doing” and looked each man in the eye as he asked them their name and shook their hand, before taking a seat in the circle. Continue reading
