Hillary's pneumonia marks the first time in recorded history

 that Republican males have expressed any interest in 

women's health.

Somehow I wish Buffet, Trump and Gates would lunch.

I'm 71 and frail. It's fine with me if we outlaw sex in the United States.  I think it causes problems.


7 Bay Area police officers to be charged with sex abuse, DA says

Seven current and former Bay Area police officers face charges that they sexually exploited a teenager working as a prostitute there. The alleged conduct involves a variety of things, including oral sex and misusing a computer database, the San Francisco Chronicle reports.
The young woman, who turned 19 in August, says that over the past two years she’s had sex with 29 officers from various agencies, and the men told each other about her, the Chronicle previously reported. According to the Chronicle, her mother is an Oakland police dispatcher.
Nancy O’Malley, the Alameda County district attorney, described the officers’ alleged conduct as “morally reprehensible.” Her office’s investigation relied heavily on online communication between police officers and the young woman, who was sent to a Florida rehabilitation facility by Contra Costa County law enforcement officials. She was recently arrested there after it was alleged that she attacked a guard.
Ricardo Perez, a former deputy in Contra Costa County who worked in the county’s jails, will be charged with felony oral copulation with a minor and engaging in lewd acts in public, according to the Chronicle.
Perez resigned in June. Dan Black, a Livermore officer who also recently resigned, faces charges of engaging in prostitution and public lewd acts.
Others to be charged, according to the article, include Oakland officers Giovanni LoVerde, Brian Bunton and Warit Uttapa, as well as former officers Terryl Smith and Leroy Johnson.
The alleged conduct came to prosecutors’ attention after the September 2015 suicide of Brendan O’Brien, an Oakland police officer who mentioned the young woman in a suicide note he left.
Other police agencies in San Francisco and Richmond, as well as the U.S. military’s Defense Logistics Agency, are still considering whether to fire or discipline officers who reportedly had sex or other conduct with the young woman, according to the article.



Mega Church Pastor Steven Furtick Declares God Does Not Want People To Know How Much He Makes

350px-God2-Sistine_ChapelIt is often remarkable how ministers facing tough questions on their income or luxury purchases will find a way to explain their lifestyle or secrecy as a biblical command like our prior discussion of televangelists who insisted that they really need private luxury jets. Now Elevation Church Pastor Steven Furtick is insisting that he would love to disclose how much he makes annually but it would be against the will of God.


Miracle Mattress Store Closes Doors After Outcry Over Its “Twin Tower” Sale

screen-shot-2016-09-11-at-5-45-06-pmMany of us remembered the 15th anniversary of 9-11 yesterday in reflection. However, Miracle Mattress store spent the weekend closing its doors and fielding irate messages from people who saw its "Twin Tower sale" days before the anniversary. The unbelievably tasteless commercial is below.

Hillary Clinton's Doctor Says Pneumonia Led to Abrupt Exit From 9/11 Event


The incident, which occurred after months of questions about Mrs. Clinton's health from Republicans, is likely to increase pressure on her to address the issue.



Bumper sticker that gives Republicans nightmares.




Target hit with $4.6 million jury verdict at trial; retailer had nixed $12K settlement offer

Target recently got hit with a $4.6 million jury verdict after a South Carolina woman in 2014 was stuck with a hypodermic needle her 8-year-old daughter found in the store parking lot.
The Minneapolis company rejected a $12,000 offer to settle the case before trial, and responded with a counteroffer of $750, the Independent Mail reported.
As Carla Denise Garrison was exiting her car, she saw her daughter pick up the needle, and she swatted it out of the child’s hand, which resulted in the needle getting stuck in Garrison’s palm, the article reports. Afterward Garrison, was prescribed medication to prevent her from contracting HIV, and it caused her to be very ill. That led to Garrison and her husband, Clint Garrison, missing work, her attorney told the newspaper. It notes that so far she has tested negative for HIV and hepatitis.
“When we started this, we were just trying to get Target to make my client whole, to pay for her medical bills and the time that her husband had to take off work,” said Joshua Hawkins, Garrison’s attorney. “We tried to be reasonable and not take this to trial. But Target took a really hard stance on it … and I think the jury sent a message.”
South Carolina law does cap some punitive damages, and that could be an issue for post-trial motions or appeals, according to the article.
The defense argued that there was no proof Target put the needle in the parking lot or had notice about it being there and failed to act.
“Our guests are at the center of everything we do, and our commitment to creating a safe and secure shopping environment in our stores is unwavering,” Erika Winkels, a Target spokeswoman, told the newspaper. “As a part this commitment to safety, we have robust procedures, policies and trainings in place to ensure that our stores are safe places to shop and work.”
