Bad Credit + GPS Tracking = "Vicious Predator" Arrested

Whether or not you like GPS tracking by car dealerships or banks, this time it turned out well...

From NBC New York:
Less than 72 hours after being violently snatched off a Philadelphia street as she walked home from visiting her godson, Carlesha Freeland-Gaither has been rescued from the "vicious predator" police say kidnapped her.

Now as she recovers from the attack that was caught on video, the focus moves onto her alleged abductor who authorities have linked to a similar crime against a teenage girl.

"I’m taking my baby home. Thank you," Keisha Gaither, the woman's overjoyed mother, told the public at a news conference Wednesday night. Her family erupted into applause as the woman spoke.

The 22-year-old was rescued from the car of her alleged kidnapper, 37-year-old Delvin Barnes, in a Jessup, Maryland parking lot Wednesday afternoon, officials said. She suffered some injuries and was taken to a nearby hospital in Columbia, Maryland for treatment, police said. She was listed in good condition and expected to recover. The family drove to the hospital Wednesday night. Early Thursday, shortly after 1 a.m., Carlesha and her family left the hospital.

“It’s very special for all of us. You hope, you hope, you hope, but you don't really know until you're actually able to get her, and make sure she's OK. So it's very important that this has a happy ending," Philadelphia Police Commissioner Charles Ramsey said.

Agents moved in quickly after receiving a tip from the ATF Office in Richmond, Virginia that Barnes may be the suspect after seeing his picture in news reports, Philadelphia detectives said.

They began tracking his gray Ford Taurus through a GPS device placed inside the vehicle by the car dealership where it was purchased, detectives said. The GPS was installed because Barnes had poor credit, officials said.

Agents honed in on his location, in a shopping center parking lot, and moved in to strike.


"He was more surprised than anything," ATF agent Tim Jones said recounting the arrest.

Barnes and the victim were in the backseat of the car when agents arrived, but he quickly jumped into the driver's seat to try and flee, Jones said. Agents blocked his way and took him into custody.

I Thought We Didn't Have Soldiers On The Ground In Iraq...?

This blog post began with one tweet from a Twitter account that belongs to ISIS...or so I heard here: "ISIS Posts Photos of Dead Female Peshmerga Soldiers – Obama Attends Fundraiser".

Here is an embedded tweet that belongs to the ISIS account to which I am referencing:


Here is a screen shot of the above tweet in case it disappears from Twitter (Ha!):

If the USA doesn't have soldiers in Iraq, how would it be possible for any muslim over there (er..."in Iraq & Sham") to give them a cup of water?

Message to "ISIS"...er, "ISIL"...er, "IS"...(btw, no one here in the USA knows 1/3 of your names for yourselves...you're cool...continue as you are):
We're only bombing you from aeroplanes. Calm yer asses.
Bammy ain't comin' fer ya. He ain't doin' it now and he ain't doin' it ever.


Word to the wise: Do all yer sh*t before another Reagan is elected.

At that time, you will be ended. But, with you bein' so smart and all, you already know that. You have another 832 days to continue your genocide on the civilized, non-barbarian, non-stone age world, non-bloody-headed-beheading world. God, you losers are sloppy. I've watched and/or recorded 100's of "beheading videos" (for the record) and, man, you dips just have no clue how to go about it. May I suggest that you NOT shave the hair on the heads of those whom you choose to separate from their bodies? Just a thought. Damn, I hope it pisses you off that some dumb dyke from the midwest could chop-off a head quicker and more efficiently than you, you worthless excuse for executioners. (May allah rot in pig poo....akbar...or something like that.)

Hey, my lovers, don't go catchin' the Ebola in the meantime, eh...it'd be much better if you had a 2-year cancer that slowly eats away at your insides...with you getting sicker and sicker and weaker and weaker with every "treatment".

If the USA doesn't elect another Reagan in 2016, whom you KNOW will END you, you will deserve to take over the world.

The bitch that is "political correctness" shall die along with you...if that whore doesn't kill the USA first.
(Although, this whore is evil, she's not quite as devastatingly evil and ruthlessly bloodthirsty as you. I wish a quick death for this bitch. May she rot in hell, right underneath a steaming pool of your wretched, disemboweled carcasses.)

.

Can I claim "poetic license" and call all of the above a "haiku"?

Aw, poo. I suppose not. Meh...

I sleep with a gun.

If MLB Speeds Up Game Play Does That Mean There Will Be Less "Ball Play"?

This is my blog...I keep trying to remind myself that I CAN make ANY kind of posts to it that I'd like. They don't ALL have to relate to "news". This morning, that's exactly what I'm doing.

So, The Blaze posted this story last night: "Major League Baseball Announced It Will Begin Testing These Six New Rules — and Some Fans Aren’t Too Happy".

I was going to post a comment on The Blaze. Instead, I'm posting it here. About as many people will interact with what I have to say here as they are allowed to do on The Blaze. In other words: No one will interact with me. (If The Blaze would put DISQUS comments on their site then their commenters could interact. But they don't, so we can't. Although, given the low-brow mentality of many of the commenters there, I'm probably happiest as it is now - with NO interaction with commenters on The Blaze.)

Oh yeah...back to baseball...

I'd love to be interested in watching baseball again. It would help if the games weren't 3-4 hours long and "DVR unfriendly". I can watch an entire 3 1/2-4 hr football game in 40 minutes on my DVR (there are REGULARLY 20-30 seconds in between each and every 4-6 second play). I regularly record and watch at least 12 football games each weekend - 6 college games on Saturday and 6 NFL games on Sunday - sometimes more, sometimes less, depending on scheduling.

I love baseball...but, damn, I haven't even bothered to record a regular season game for about 5 years now. I got sick of seeing all of all the spitting and "scratching" in between plays. SPEEDING UP THE GAME OF BASEBALL SOUNDS GREAT TO ME! More game play = less spitting and "ball play" by the players. On camera, that is. They'll still do it, I just won't have to see it in between the plays on the field. (I dare you to write this and avoid all the double entendres.)

If they'd put some sort of uniform time limit on the action between plays during MLB games, I wouldn't be so adverse to watching all the spitting and "ball play"...er...I mean "game play". I could eliminate it by jumping ahead on my DVR. As it is now, I could go to a local construction site and watch classier men behaving properly in public.

As a female, I MUST ASK any male readers:
What the HELL is going on down there that causes baseball players to CONSTANTLY have to "lift up" and/or "readjust" their genitals? My goodness...NFL players don't do that (constantly, like MLB players do). UFC fighters don't do that (unless they get cracked in the nuts - because we all know that rattling around an "injured" part of your body ALWAYS makes it feel better...whatever).

What the hell is it about standing on a field for 3-4 hours that causes a guy to feel the need to "address" the position of his balls every time he is on camera? I'm being totally serious here...I asked my dad a similar question one time and he really didn't appreciate it.

Seriously though, I want to know...what's the problem down there?

Why can't MLB players keep their hands off their junk?

Is this a problem that baby powder could fix?

If any MAN chooses to reply with a rational reason, thank you. For any "new male tweeners" that will be pissed off that I asked, I'll just block you and remove your nasty comment...don't waste your time leaving a comment. Even though I'm a gay female, I DO know the difference between a "man" and a "male"...probably better so than do most of the straight women I know who are in relationships with "males" (not "men"). (Which, OK, now I've pissed all of them off too. Hey, these "non-news" posts sure are fun, aren't they?)

Yes. They can be.

YouTube Channel Used By ISIS Still Online - UPDATE: ***VIDEO STILL ON YOUTUBE***


This morning ISIS released a 4th video. No one lost their life in this video and there was no gore in it. The video was originally uploaded to YouTube on this channel. That 4th video that was posted by ISIS this morning was removed from YouTube within a couple of hours. However, the YouTube channel that hosted that video remains on YouTube...even though it has what appear to me to be 2 other ISIS propaganda videos on it.

(Go HERE to read more about the contents of today's video.)

If YouTube is removing the ISIS videos because they "promote terrorism", fine. If YouTube is removing the ISIS videos because they're gross, fine. But, at least be consistent, YouTube. There is zero "gore" in today's video and the two videos that remain (links below) on that YouTube channel from which you deleted the "4th video" released this morning, certainly promote terrorism...because they promote ISIS.

Do I speak Arabic? (Or whatever language they're speaking.) No. Watch the videos for yourself and tell me they do NOT "promote ISIS".

Video #1
Video #2

That YouTube channel should be knocked off of YouTube. And so should the hundreds (or thousands?) of other YouTube channels that promote terrorism. That is, IF YouTube's goal is to not allow terrorists to promote terrorism on their website. If that isn't YouTube's goal and their goal is to keep more Americans ignorant to the truth, then, leave all the terrorist channels and all of the videos they post online. At least that way we have some chance at knowing what and who the hell it is we're dealing with. Show some consistency, please.

I think all of the videos should remain easily accessible. I don't think any of them should be removed. I think all Americans and all Westerners should have the opportunity to view all of them. How can you know the truth unless you see it for yourself?

Just for the record, this is the url of the "4th video" (as seen in the picture at the top of this post) that was removed this morning by YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LNFzv9mTHew


*****UPDATE*****
11:46PM CST

The "#4 video", as I've referenced it above, that was released this morning by ISIS this morning was deleted from the original YouTube account to which it was uploaded. However, the video still remains here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KfDdIcAho5c on YouTube. I found this video earlier this morning shortly after the original had been removed. I fully expected this video to also be removed by YouTube by now. I'm guessing they have the cash to hire people who can translate the videos uploaded to their site. Funny how I, an English-only speaking dog groomer/part-time blogger/conservative hack, found the damn thing. Here is the title of the video as it appears on YouTube: تنظيم داعش ينشر تسجيلاً يظهر فيه الصحافي البريطاني المختطف "كانتلي " - I think it's probably pretty clear to all of you that I didn't write that. ;)

LaSean McCoy's 20-cent Tip Receipt - Ebay Bidding at $99,900 - You Read That Right

Richie Rich NFL football player LaSean McCoy of the Philadelphia Eagles goes into a burger joint in Philly and spends $61.56. He leaves a 20-cent tip "to make a statement" and a picture of his credit card receipt goes viral online. Someone at the burger joint decides to sell the receipt on eBay. 44 different bidders make 134 bids. The price of that receipt at auction on eBay now sits at $99,900.00. And, there are still 2 days left in the auction.

eBay

McCoy says he received crappy service and that's why he left the pathetic tip. Workers at the restaurant say that McCoy and his friends were insulting and disrespectful from the moment they sat down.

eBay

Bids had reached $100K but two different people who made those bids retracted them.

eBay


Here's the entire bidding history as of right now. The auction ends on September 20th...

The bidding began in a sane manner...and, then it just got nuts. Wouldn't it be nice to have that kind of money? I can think of so many better things to do with that kind of cash...oh well.

According to the seller's description on eBay the money received from this auction will be divided among all the staff at the burger joint:
The item up for Auction is the controversial $0.20 Receipt for Philadelphia Eagles running back LeSean "Shady" McCoy's meal at Philadelphia Restaurant, PYT.

The aforementioned receipt has caused quite the media buzz amongst social media/news networks/celebrities along with many others.

Not only do you get to keep a memento of weird current events/social media history but you also get an autograph from incredibly talented Philadelphia Eagles running back, LeSean McCoy!!!

As to how I came into possession of this item:

My good friend Tommy Up has left this receipt in my possession in order to ensure something positive comes out of this somewhat negative action that has recently taken place.

With your help we'll be able to leave the largest tip possible to all PYT employees for their hard work and dedication.

The only thing we would like to ask on your end is for the winner to write a personalized note or card to the PYT staff, which we give to the staff along with the winning bid/tip. (We want to give credit where credit is due)

Happy Bidding!!!

I don't know how many are employed at the burger joint...but, I'm guessing this will be the largest "tip" all of them will ever receive. Good job, LaSean. Hope you feel like you proved your point...raking-in $45 million+ and not even having the decency to leave a crappy $5.00 tip. You sure showed them! Ha.

I've worked in food service before (and may again in the future). Non-tippers and low-tippers really chap my ass, and as far as I'm concerned, they should never seek the "service" of ANYONE...EVER. In my experience, the "non-tipping class" is so full of themselves that it is not possible to give them the type of service to which they feel they are entitled...yet, they all use "poor service" as a reason for their not tipping. As if their mere presence on earth is the only needed qualifier for having someone come to their table to kiss their ass.

And, those of you who say you CAN'T AFFORD to tip: If you can't afford to tip, you can't afford to eat out. Period. Go to the grocery store and buy TRIPLE the amount of food you could buy for the same amount in ANY low-priced restaurant. Don't expect someone who works just as hard, if not harder, than you do to "serve" you for no tip simply because you opened a door and sat at a table.
