Sadie Robertson loses to a no-talent black man on Dancing with the Stars

So, Sadie loses because she is a moral Christian white girl and they give it to a no talent jackass, who’s biggest accomplishment was being the fresh prince’s rich sidekick? Nice, real nice. The thugs in Ferguson won this one. …and they wonder why I loathe black people? I’m just saying. 😡

The video:

Sadie was, as always, unlike the black thugs in Ferguson, a class act. Sadie Robertson will one day go on to be something great and will be an awesome wife and mother to a very lucky man. As for the free prince sidekick; he will be what he is now, a has-been actor that was really only known for one good show. Lord knows, he has milked that little gravy train for all it is worth.

Update: Also too: Before anyone says it, I know good and well what I wrote here. This guy was an elected official. I’m not, I am a writer, there’s a difference. Besides all that considering what happened to my cousin in 1994; blacks should be glad I am not out murdering them at random, if it were not for Jesus, I would be. 😡

NEW YORK –  It’s been a bad week for A&E.

First, Dave Hester sued the network, claiming “Storage Wars” was staged. Now the network’s History Channel division has its own lawsuit brewing over its hit show “Pawn Stars.”

A talent agency has filed a lawsuit against The History Channel, TMZ reported, claiming they signed on to represent the cast of “Pawn Stars” back in 2007 and 2009 and were terminated after the show hit the air.

The agency, Venture IAB, claims they were representing Corey Harrison, Rick Harrison, Richard Harrison and Austin “Chumlee” Russell before the stars made it big. The agency alleges six months after the show hit the air, two “Pawn Star” executives convinced the cast to end their deal with Venture.

Poor Rick Harrison; the dude cannot catch a break! I mean, the show is a success and what happens? The vultures come out in force. I am writing about this, because I happen to like the show, quite a bit. It is a good escape from the stupidity of politics all of the time.

Hopefully, Rick can get this dismissed or solved, without losing his rear end.

Larry Hagman RIP

You might find this amusing that I am covering this; but Larry Hagman was a big part of my life in the 1980’s. You see, Dallas followed the Duke’s of Hazzard, which I watched every week.

The Story via Dallas News:

Larry Hagman, who played the conniving and mischievous J.R. Ewing on the TV show Dallas, died Friday at Medical City in Dallas, of complications from his recent battle with cancer, his family said.

He was 81.

“Larry was back in his beloved Dallas re-enacting the iconic role he loved most,” his family said in a written statement. “Larry’s family and close friends had joined him in Dallas for the Thanksgiving holiday. When he passed, he was surrounded by loved ones. It was a peaceful passing, just as he had wished for. The family requests privacy at this time.”

The role of J.R. transformed Mr. Hagman’s life. He rocketed from being a merely well-known TV actor on I Dream of Jeannie and the son of Broadway legend Mary Martin, to the kind of international fame known only by the likes the Beatles and Muhammad Ali.

Mr. Hagman made his home in California with his wife of 59 years, the former Maj Axelsson. Despite obvious physical frailty, he gamely returned to Dallas to film season one and part of season two of TNT’s Dallas reboot.

Friends were in shock Friday, especially those who saw him only days ago. But those close to him say he knew the end was coming and he was glad to have his family in town for Thanksgiving.

One thing you have to know about Larry Hagman is this, he was no flunky actor, he was a professionally trained actor from the old school. He was a veteran of the Broadway stage long before he was ever a TV actor. He really knew his chops, and due to his southern upbringing, he took to the role of J.R. Ewing like a duck to water. The awesome thing about that role is that Larry Hagman made it absolutely believable. The show and JR Ewing were a part of the American culture in the 1980’s. Sure, it was Hollywood’s way of mocking the wealthy, but that was what Hollywood did; nothing hurtful or sinister, just harmless comedy and a bit drama on this show.

Larry Hagman, a great actor, and big part of American culture is now gone. Rest in Peace, Mr. Ewing, you have more than earned it.

Andy Williams RIP

The Voice has died.

Quote via people mag:

Andy Williams, whose corn-fed good looks, easygoing charm and smooth rendition of “Moon River” propelled him to the heights of music stardom in the early ’60s, died Tuesday at his home in Branson, Mo., following a battle with bladder cancer, his family announced.

He was 84, and 2012 had marked his 75th year in showbiz. Williams is survived by his wife Debbie and his three children, Robert, Noelle and Christian.

With 17 gold and three platinum records to his name, Williams enjoyed his golden years playing golf and dividing his time between La Quinta, Calif., and Branson, where he appeared at his Andy Williams Moon River Theater since 1992.

Something via Wikipedia:

While close friends with the Democratic Kennedys, Williams called himself a lifelong Republican.[24] On September 29, 2009, he was quoted by the Daily Telegraph as accusing PresidentBarack Obama of “following Marxist theory” and “wanting the country to fail”.[25][26]

He knew, just like we know.

Rest in peace Andy. We will continue to fight for the America, that you knew and loved so dearly. Prayers for his wife and children.


Video: Bristol Palin’s son demonstrates Palin family’s blatant hypocrisy

This comes from somewhere that I normally would not link to in a million years.

This video does not sadden me, it angers me greatly. All during the 2008 election, the left contended that this family were nothing more than two-bit fakes, when it came to social Conservatism. It was first suspected when Bristol came out as pregnant. It was also was confirmed, when Bristol and her younger sister and some friends, made some rather nasty comments on a posting in the comments section of her Facebook page. Now, there is this above.

When will Fox News, and the rest of the conservative community finally say that enough is enough and finally wake up to the fact that entire Palin family; are nothing more than a bunch of two-bit charlatans, who are using the Conservative Christian banner as nothing more than an means to make money? I have been a born again Christian for 30 years. (I have not always acted like it and even spent time far away from the Lord. But I digress. ) I have spent more than my fair share of time, in Church and around Christians. The Christians that I know, do not talk like that, and they do not allow their children to talk like that either! Because if their talked like that; they would either get their mouths washed out with soap or, they would get their little behinds spanked. I can also say that this was the case with yours truly too.

Am I being judgmental? No, I am simply saying that there is a Godly way of raising a child and it is quite obvious to me, that Bristol Palin is not doing that; and because she is such a public figure, she most certainly should be held to a higher standard, than most parents. What I also find to be absolutely laughable, is that somehow or another; Bristol Palin is being held up as some sort of Christian role model for young Christian girls. Further more, that child did not just make up that little word up; take two guesses where he learned it from and your first one does not count. In other words, the child is repeating what he heard his mommy say!

I leave you with this:

Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it. (Proverbs 22:6 KJV)


Foolishness is bound in the heart of a child; but the rod of correction shall drive it far from him. (Proverbs 22:15 KJV)

Withhold not correction from the child: for if thou beatest him with the rod, he shall not die. Thou shalt beat him with the rod, and shalt deliver his soul from hell. (Proverbs 23:13-14 KJV)

The rod and reproof give wisdom: but a child left to himself bringeth his mother to shame. When the wicked are multiplied, transgression increaseth: but the righteous shall see their fall. Correct thy son, and he shall give thee rest; yea, he shall give delight unto thy soul. Where there is no vision, the people perish: but he that keepeth the law, happy is he. (Proverbs 29:15-18 KJV)

This, according to Word of God, is where Bristol Palin is a massive failure. Modernist Christians will disagree with this, of course; because they reject the Word of God as the final authority. But we Baptist’s know this to be very true. Another thought too; it is quite obvious that Bristol Palin, much like her mother, is a feminist, which is a liberal progressive idea — and it very much shows in her child rearing.

UPDATE: Bristol says he did not make a “gay” slur as Huffpo reported, but rather used the word, which Van Halen called “For Unlawful Carnal Knowledge.” Just the same, the kid should get its mouth washed out with soap. Bristol writes this for a silly excuse:

Lifetime filmed over 12 months (on and off) and they caught a moment on film that would cause any parent to be red in the face. Tripp is always surrounded by adults – around the campfires with cousins and their friends, at the shop with my dad and his snowmachine buddies. He’s apparently picked up some language that I’d prefer he not use. On national television or at home.

I got twenty bucks that says she uses the language too. Also too, some Christian family. I was under the impression that all of Palin family were Christians. Either way, it’s a flimsy excuse. Just more perfect example of a fatherless child and a lousy mother.

Time to tell it like it is: Bobby Brown is a freakin’ slime-ball puke

There are not enough words in the English language to tell how exactly how I feel about this idiot:

NEWARK — Bobby Brown, the ex-husband of Whitney Houston, left the New Hope Baptist Church just minutes before the funeral was to begin.

According to a person familiar with the situation, Brown brought an entourage of nine people with him to the Newark church and wanted them to sit with them in the family section.

“They were asked to leave,” the person said, referring to the entourage. Brown was not asked to leave, but “he left with the other people,” according to the person, who was not at liberty to discuss the situation publicly.

Brown appeared visibly upset as he left the church and got into a black Cadillac SUV.

via Visibly upset, Bobby Brown leaves Whitney Houston’s funeral |


You know, there are just some moments when you just have to tell it like it is.  This here is one of them moments.  Before I nuke this overrated piece of trash, named Bobby Brown, verbally into the next century, let me say this — Yes; I watched that funeral of Whitney Houston’s.  I watched the entire service from beginning, until the incredibly sad ending, when Whitney’s mother was walking behind the casket of her own daughter, wailing and weeping for her daughter who was taken from her.  Even I, the tough as nails type was nearly to tears.  The reason is that I had to watch a woman, who is a grandma, having to bury her daughter.  Children are support to bury their parents, not the other way around.

The question I have for Mr. Brown is this; why in the name of the Almighty God would he honestly need NINE people to follow him into a funeral of his ex-wife? Mr. Brown, you sir are a classless punk.  Mr. Brown did it ever; at any time occur to you, that you did not need all those people to go into the Church with you?  However, no, you just had to bring along your gang of friends along with you.  To, as always, make a show of yourself.  You sir, are a dirty slime ball piece of human excrement.  YOU are the reason why Whitney Houston is dead in the first place!  YOU are the reason that Whitney Houston was a drug-addicted junkie who could not keep herself straight long enough to record any record.  Whitney Houston did those drugs to please YOU!  To show just how much you appreciated her doing that, what did you do?  You beat her; you mistreated her and generally acted like an ungodly buffoon.  So much, in fact, that she ended up having to divorce your sorry self finally.

Then, to add insult to injury after the woman died from the drugs that YOU got her started on, YOU have the god-damned nerve to show up at her funeral and act like a spoiled punk ass brat and when you did not get your way, you leave in a huff!  There happens to be a word that some people like to use to describe people like yourself, and it Begins with an N and ends with an R!  You should be giving thanks to the almighty God in Heaven that the Huston family has not taken a contract out on your life.  I am almost certain that her brothers would like to do this to you.  I know I would, if I were them!

In closing, allow me to say this; Bobby Brown, grow up.  Get on with your pathetic life and leave the Houston family alone.  They have suffered enough and stay away from your daughter, she has already lost her Mother thanks to you, and you want to kill the daughter too?  I mean, seriously.  Also too, let me say this; let this be a lesson to Christian young women everywhere — stay away from devilish men, like Bobby Brown.  If you have been raised in Church, like Whitney, find you a man in the Church and stay there!  Do not be messing around with some fool in the world; because this right here is where you will end up, one way, or another — in the graveyard.

Nice to know we could count on you Mustaine

Now, you can go back to sniffing coke off a hooker’s ass.

Remember my posting on how Dave Mustaine was going to be supporting Rick Santorum the anti-libertarian? Well, so much for that:

“Contrary to how some people have interpreted my words, I have not endorsed any presidential candidate,” the rocker said in a release after earlier reports had him backing Republican Rick Santorum on Wednesday. “What I did say was that I hope to see a Republican in the White House. I’ve seen good qualities in all the candidates but by no means have made my choice yet. I respect the fact that Santorum took time off from his campaign to be with his sick daughter, but I never used the word ‘endorse.'”

Open Message to Bill Donahue: Where is the fatwa on Nicki Minaj?

I am shocked he did not issue one, after this asinine performance:

21221223435 by YardieGoals

Gateway Pundit calls this “brave.” What a fool. 😡

Rod Dreher says it is part of the Anti-Christian and Anti-Catholic culture in America. Which is very true.

Dreher also says this:

It’s tiresome when Christians respond to things like this by saying, “They would never consider doing something like using Islāmic imagery.” But you know, it’s true. It’s always true. Let those with eyes to see.

Amen to that; and it is true, had this been a song mocking the religion of Islam. This young woman would be either in hiding wishing she was dead or would be dead. It is too bad that Bill Donahue, who did issue a statement about the performance, which I feel was totally inadequate for the scope of mockery here — did not issue a fatwa against this woman. I mean, it should have read something to the effect of, “The Catholic League will pay someone 1 million dollars, if someone will take this little black mocker of God out.” I believe it would have caused an uproar, but it would have gotten her and her managements attention.

A few days ago, Whitney Houston died of unknown causes. At the moment I found out, I thought, “How unfair.” For all Whitney’s problems and personal issues; she was still a wonderful talent that had so much more to give to her fans. Such is not the case with this idiot mocker of the Faith. So, seeing that I am a controversial blogger; I will say this — Here is hoping that this little classless black hoe meets the same fate as Whitney Houston and I mean very quickly. Anyone who mocks religion, does not deserve the breath the they keep in the lungs. This was not art; this was open mockery of Roman Catholicism, The Church, and Christianity in General.

Again, had this been a song about Islam and its repressive Religion, she would be in hiding; but, because it is a mockery of the Christian faith, The “LA CROWD” was fine with it. This tells you how far that the music industry, Hollywood and the L.A. Scene has fallen in the last 50 years. This wasn’t cool, this wasn’t ironic, this wasn’t funny, this wasn’t hip; this was a disgraceful attack on God, organized Religion  in general, the Church as a concept, Christianity and the Roman Catholic Church. Because of this; I found Mr. Donahue’s statement a bit lacking. Could it be that Bill Donahue has lost his edge? I sure haven’t, nor will I ever.

I end this blog posting with this, a Bible scripture that says:

Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap. (Galatians 6:7 KJV)

Here is hoping that Mr. Minaj reaps the whirlwind of her actions and quickly.

The truth is, she will, whether in this life or the next; the fact remains is she will face a Holy and Righteous God, and will have to explain her actions. Based upon what I saw last night, this will happen, before she is cast into a godless hell and then the Lake of Fire.

Revelation 20:11-15 KJV:
(11)  And I saw a great white throne, and him that sat on it, from whose face the earth and the heaven fled away; and there was found no place for them.
(12)  And I saw the dead, small and great, stand before God; and the books were opened: and another book was opened, which is the book of life: and the dead were judged out of those things which were written in the books, according to their works.
(13)  And the sea gave up the dead which were in it; and death and hell delivered up the dead which were in them: and they were judged every man according to their works.
(14)  And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death.
(15)  And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire.

The quicker, the better; if you ask me.

Update: Heck even TMZ didn’t even like it!

UPDATED: TMZ: Whitney Houston may have drowned in Bathtub

Here’s the latest on Whitney:

No illegal drugs have been found in the hotel room where Whitney Houston died — at least not yet — but prescription drugs were present, and it’s possible the singer drowned in the bathtub … TMZ has learned.

Sources tell us … when EMTs arrived Whitney’s body was already removed from the bathtub so it will take an autopsy to determine if she OD’d, drowned or died from some other cause.

Informed sources tell us … Beverly Hills cops — who were still searching the room at the time this story was posted — found various pill bottles. There was no evidence that Whitney was drinking alcohol in the room.

Whitney’s body was just removed from the room on a gurney. It will go to the morgue for an autopsy to determine cause of death.

BREAKING NEWS: Singer Whitney Houston dead at age 48

I am beyond stunned.

This is as big as Michael Jackson or even Elvis Presley dying.

Not to mention, this makes Sarah Palin’s speech look so unimportant now.

Via TMZ:

Whitney Houston died this afternoon … a rep for the singer told the Associated Press.

Our sources tell us a member of Whitney’s entourage found her in her room at the Beverly Hilton hotel … and called hotel security — who then dialed 911. When paramedics arrived Houston was found unresponsive.

We’re told police arrived to the scene within minutes and fire was already there on an unrelated call. According to our sources, paramedics performed CPR but it did not work and she was pronounced dead at 3:55 PM.

Our sources say there were no obvious signs of foul play, but BH PD detectives have begun a full investigation. We’re told she was ID’ed by family and friends.

The singer famously battled drug addiction for years.

Houston was seen out in Hollywood on Thursday night … and she did not look well.

Via the AP:

“I am absolutely heartbroken at the news of Whitney’s passing,” music producer Quincy Jones said in a written statement. “I always regretted not having had the opportunity to work with her. She was a true original and a talent beyond compare. I will miss her terribly.”

Needless to say, we won’t find out anytime soon what killed her. She was a voice from God and now she is back with her Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. She was a Baptist and was raised in the Church. May she rest in peace. My thoughts and prayers go to the Huston family and her extended family as well.

I hate to be one to say it about….but

You guys are screwing up….badly.  Sexism? Please, this is reality people. Get with the program already! :roll: is supposed to be a Conservative Blog. I find that to be unbelievable, considering this video that was posted today.

Ed, Allah, and yes, you too Tina! Please, don’t go the Ann Coulter route okay? It cheapens your message and it makes you look like hypocrites.

Tina, you are a Catholic, try actually dressing like one and not like some office “MILF” looking for a place up the corporate ladder. I did not even watch the video; I was that sickened by what I saw and I am sure that Rick Santorum just loved being next to a chick that was essentially him a peep show of her hoo haa. (if you know what I mean….)

Because you see, this right here is one of the biggest reasons, in litany of other reasons; why I left the Evangelical, Pentecostal Christian circles and went back to the Independent, Fundamental, KJV Baptist Circles. It was the, “We’re Christians and we love Jesus; but don’t ask us to dress like it, talk like it or not drink bear and not wear mini-skirts!” thing that really put me off. In fact, I went to a Church just like that and it got the point where I just did not even want to go there, because of the lack of a dress code. Some men might actually like that kind of thing; but when you are trying to serve the Lord and keep your mind pure and your Heart right, when you are single man, and you have to look at that sort of thing —- it wears on you greatly.  I can honestly tell you that my three years that I attended that Church which I linked to, was one of roughest periods in my walk with the Lord. Needless to say, I am glad I left there for good finally in 2004. (and I am sure they were glad to be rid of me; but considering what their former Pastor was revealed to have done with someone other than his wife —- They really do not have a thing to say to me!)

To be fair to the one’s who I did level some criticism at; the Baptist circles are not much better. When I left the tongues crowd in favor of Baptist Christianity; I landed at this Church here. I went there back before they changed their name — twice. I left once to check out other Churches in the area and ended up coming back there in 2006 and then leaving again. All I will say about that Pastor is that I take Matthew Chapter 18:15-17 literally — and this Pastor, did not. Sorry, but calling me on a cellphone is not a way I consider to be a proper way to level accusations against me. Especially after I have spent over five weeks helping remodel your little Church office that you just had to have for free!  Not to mention the fact that not a darned word of the idiotic accusations against me were even remotely true. In case you are wondering, that hick of a Pastor considered me looking this up here to be and I quote, “getting on the internet and looking up private information about HIS Church.” His words, not mine. Needless to say, I left and never went back again; nor will I ever.  Will I ever go anywhere ever again; I highly doubt it. I just do not need the headaches anymore. I will just stay home, read my Bible and wait for the Lord to come back and sort all this mess out.

Before anyone says it in the comments; I know there is no such thing as a perfect Christian. I know this all too well. But, I think some so-called Christians could really try, just a little bit harder. Especially, when they are in the public eye and they are supposed to be representing a Conservative viewpoint and in this young lady’s case; the body of Christ.

One thing I will give to the Jewish people and to the Muslim people; at least they are sincere about what they believe and actually act like it. More than I can say for the people who claim to be the blood-washed believers in Christ Jesus.


My feelings on the Josh Powell tragedy

Things like this are never, ever, easy to write about, because if you take a position that is outside of the normal realm of opinion; people tend to think you are someone who justifies murder or crime.  Let me say emphatically that I do not condone, justify or even remotely support what justify that which Josh Powell did to his Children or even possibly to his wife.

However, yesterday I wrote a posting on this blog, which shows that something is seriously wrong with our Government.  It just so happens that if the Government decides that you have committed a crime, the burden of clearing your name falls on the person accused of the crime; and if you happen to not be a person of great means of wealth, you basically become a slave to the judicial system. Sometimes that judicial system becomes poisoned —- whether by bias, religious discrimination or some other poison.  Furthermore, if you marry a woman and that woman’s family and parents decide that they have a vendetta against you, and they have the Government on their side, you are twisting in the wind, my friend. As for Powell’s wife, the authorities have no idea what happened to his wife. All they have are theories.  The truth is she could have left the Country or State with another man for all we know. But, it will not be properly investigated; because they have to pin the murder on someone; so, why not Josh? He killed himself and his two kids, did he not? It is an conviction of convenience; something big, intrusive Governments are known for.

Such is the case of Josh Powell — From the Salt Lake City Tribune:

Graham, Wash. • Relatives of Josh Powell blamed government officials, media and Internet media pundits for setting in motion the terrible tragedy that has now rocked two families.

The statement signed by Maurice and Patti Leach said they were “grievously saddened” by the loss experienced by both the Cox and Powell families and that there was no justification for the deaths of Powell’s two innocent sons, Charlie, 7, and Braden, 5.

Patti Leach is Steve Powell’s sister. They attended a September custody hearing to support Josh Powell. In a statement they said that he had asked for their support in helping him as “the next patriarchs of the family” following his father’s arrest on pornography and voyeurism charges.

“We were also asked by Josh if we would offer a safe haven for his sons should the need arise,” the Leaches said. “Our answer was absolutely yes.”


The Leaches said they had become disillusioned with the legal system during the court proceedings. They said government agencies, religious bias, “Internet kangaroo courts and sensationalized media had circumvented and “completely compromised” due process rights in the case.

“America, this is not only a tragedy, Sunday was a dark day for all of our families,” the Leaches said.

On May 18, 1927 a School in Bath, Michigan was bombed.  A man named Andrew Kehoe was the culprit.  The media then made him into a monster.  The truth is, the man was pushed into foreclosure on his farm, because of excess taxes brought on a levy to pay for a school.  The point here is that Andrew and Josh both have one thing in common; they were pushed to the brink of violence and committed these acts of violence because they were pushed; by an intrusive Government that would stop at nothing, to get what it wanted. Sadly, because of this, in 1927 — 45 people; 38 children who never got a chance to grow up and be adults, 2 teachers, 4 other adults and the bomber himself were killed and 58 people were injured. All because the Government just had to have its taxes.

I think we can do better than this — much better.

I leave you all with a picture that was made by Andrew Kehoe before his death:

Such is the case with Josh Powell and Andrew Kehoe

Special Comment: Jennifer Petkov

I title this with a rather short headline, because frankly I cannot think of anything to put in there, besides the woman’s name. It was Indira Gandhi, who served as the third Prime Minister of India, who said the following, “Forgiveness is a virtue of the brave.” It takes a great deal of bravery to forgive someone who has wronged you. I could write about that for hours on end. If I had a dollar for everyone who has ever wronged me, I could live a very comfortable life as a very wealthy man. Unfortunately, I have more forgiveness than I have money. Funny how that works, is it not?

The dunder head twins

I noticed a rather odd thing happening on this new blog with the stats earlier today, for some odd reason they kept going up. I check and sure enough, a familiar name was back in the headlines —Jennifer Petkov. I let out a rather audible groan and went to look at the stats for the old blog of mine and sure enough, the hits were climbing quicker than the unemployment rate in Detroit. I noticed Jennifer Petkov’s name in the search results. I sighed and thought, “What has that crazy woman done this time?” I opened a browser tab, did a search, and saw that Mrs. Petkov and her overgrown boyfriend or husband, (not sure which…) was going to be on Dr. Phil’s show. “Oh great, give the little attention whore more than she really deserves,” I muttered to myself in a rather rude sounding tone, which was even bad for me. I give the little bleached blonde bimbo a year, she will be doing porn flicks, or nudie spreads in playboy. Yeah, I said that Jennifer, and I am damned proud of it. I would just love to see her to try suing me for insulting her.

"You blew it Blondie, big time"

Anyhow, I watched the show. I have conflicted feelings about it. I did not like how the show was biased against Jennifer Petkov. I know what she did was horrible, but I believe everyone should be fairly represented in the media, and she was denied that. Further, I think her lawyers might have given her some bad advice in letting her do the show. What struck me as being very odd; is how Jennifer Petkov at first, admitted to doing some stuff, then sort of being sorry for everything. I believe she does not want to implicate herself even more than she already has. Furthermore, I did not like how Dr. Phil just took the accusations of Rebecca Rose at face value — for all we know, Rose herself could have put those postings on Facebook and blamed Jennifer for it. Unless we have some sort verifiable proof from Facebook, such as an IP address that belongs to Jennifer Petkov, then the things, outside of those photo shops could have been done by someone else, including Mrs. Rose herself. I wonder if Petkov’s lawyer bothered to find that out at all.

Rest in Peace Kathleen

Now before I go any further, something needs to be said. This entire damned thing is not about the two broads who were friends and had some sort of dirty tampon fight. What this truly is about; is Kathleen Edward. A little angel is gone, to be with her Mother and her grandfather. The actions of Jennifer Petkov were reprehensible, there is no dispute to that; however, in our reporting of those actions, we must not give this idiotic bimbo of a woman any more attention than she truly deserves.

Up above I wrote a quote that read, “Forgiveness is a virtue of the brave.” The person that exemplifies that fact is Kathleen Edward’s father, Robert Edward. On Dr. Phil’s show, Robert Edward expressed a desire to forgive Jennifer Petkov, because Kathleen would have wanted that, and because of that, he was done with the issue. I have to commend the man for that, because it takes a great deal of courage and strength to do something like this.

I hope that this is the last time I will ever have to write about this awful subject. I was not that happy to become involved with it; however, because I am from the area, I feel the need to write about it. The main reason is just that it makes everyone from this area, to those outside of the area — look like crazy people. I believe there are some that honestly believe that Michigan is a crazy State filled with crazy people. Outside of the occasional stray, I can proudly state that we are saner that some might think. However, let me state that sometimes sanity is so overrated.

In closing: I hope that I was able to add a bit of humor to a rather dark, depressing subject. I hope that we can put this idiotic dirty tampon fight between Jennifer Petkov and Rebecca Rose to rest finally and that little Kathleen will finally be able to rest in peace. I hope both families move on and I hope everyone else moves on and this rather sad story is remanded to the dustbin of history. Lastly, I hope that Jennifer Petkov has learned her lesson and never logs on to Facebook again, at least not with hatred in her heart towards anyone. Because as she has found out here in the last few years; that can be quite an unprofitable venture.

Legendary Singer Etta James Dead at 73

So sad, she lived to see the first black President. Now she’s with the angels in Heaven. :(

Video from AP: reports:

Legendary R&B singer Etta James — famous for her hit songs “At Last” and “Something’s Got a Hold on Me” — has died.

The singer — whose health was on a rapid decline the last few years — was diagnosed with leukemia in 2010. She also suffered from dementia and Hepatitis C.

 Her live-in doctor announced the singer was “terminally ill” last month, after her leukemia was declared incurable.

 Etta died at a hospital in Riverside, California … her manager confirmed.

Her Best:

Another good one:

Say what you want; but the woman could belt a song. She will be missed and may she rest in peace.
