Louisiana Looters

Have ya'll heard about the "Louisiana Looters?" This whole ordeal has really chapped my ass. I'm not one to jump on the PA boat with my high horse and condemn these particular people, but this is ridiculous. Let me give you the quick scoop.

Last month, Xerox was doing a routine system check and the system crashed. When this system crashed, they alerted all EBT accepting retailers in 17 states. Some stores put up signs stating that shoppers wouldn't be able to use their cards due to technical difficulties. However, Wal-Mart, being huge idiots, agreed to allow shoppers to use their EBT cards thinking they would use that trusty honor system. When food stamp recipients found out about this in Springhill and Mansfield, Louisiana, they went insane. They cleared the shelves, throwing anything and everything edible in their carts.

I'm curious. At what point did the managers of Wal-Mart realize that people were being deceitful. Was it when people were acting like the sky was falling and stocking up for a Zombie Apocalypse? Or maybe when they had to call the police for crowd control? Maybe it wasn't until they announced that the system was up and people left their completely full carts all over the store and walked out.

I just don't understand this. I don't understand why people receiving benefits were taking full advantage of the system and Wal-Mart, to an extent, absolutely knew what was going on and allowed it to happen. One lady, rolled on up to a cash register with over $700 of groceries in her basket. The system came up in the middle of her transaction to find out she only had 50 cents on her card. The police tried to arrest her and Wal-Mart released the woman.

So, who do we hold accountable? Wal-Mart for not using the emergency protocol and allowing recipients to over spend by hundreds? Or is it the recipients who knowingly took advantage of the system during a major malfunction? The Governor of Louisiana has released a statement saying these people will be held accountable and will face consequences of their actions. Consequences include banning from the program for a year, two years or life. All in all, the ones that will truly suffer are the children because their parents made a horrible, thoughtless decision. There is a process to determine eligibility for the program and they obviously qualified or they wouldn't have had it to begin with. So, will baning these people really solve anything? Children will go hungry and who knows if these parents will find a job or a second job to make up for their benefit loss. I don't agree with life sentences of receiving benefits. I think this should be a "wean off" program. Welfare was created to help people in bad times. A program to help them get back on their feet, not a way of life. I hope the people who took advantage of a technical malfunction will have to pay the consequences. I just hope the children of the irresponsible parents don't end up being the victims.

What are your thoughts?

Derek Medina Kills Wife & Posts to FaceBook

Derek Medina. Has anyone heard of this psycho lately?

Personally, I think he looks crazy.

 Reader's Digest version: This guy and his wife get into a normal couple's quarrel and it gets heated. She apparently gets fed up with his shit and when he confronts her about leaving, she grabs and knife and he grabs a gun. He is able to disarm her. Let me repeat that.... he disarms her. She "punches" him and he shoots her six to eight times.

Are you joking?

I do not agree with domestic violence whatsoever, but she punched him and he felt it necessary to shoot her. Makes perfect sense.  He is probably one of those psychotic, controlling freaks that thinks, "If I can't have you, no one will" when she attempted to leave him.

What really gets me is he posted a confession and a picture of her dead body on FaceBook.

"Im going to prison or death sentence for killing my wife love you guys miss you guys takecare Facebook people you will see me in the news my wife was punching me and I am not going to stand anymore with the abuse so I did what I did I hope u understand me"

I don't believe she abused him. I don't believe she screwed with his head and beat him up on a constant basis. I think he played this, "I am man. Hear me roar." I also don't believe he was powerless against her and felt his life threatened so much he needed to protect himself by killing her. I think he could have walked away or shut the door to the bathroom giving time for both to calm down. Or just let her leave.

But, just for a moment, let's play Devil's Advocate.

If roles were reversed, would we be screaming crazy person at her? Would we understand why she did it? Would we stand behind her even though she could have walked away? Of course we would. Why, you ask? Because she is a woman and naturally we are weak compared to a man in strength. Look at Mary Winkler. She killed a freaking preacher. And because he supposedly make her prance around like a stripper in their bedroom and he was abusive, she walked away serving 7 months in a Psych Ward. Barbara Sheehan shot her husband 11 times and was acquitted of murder because she claimed abuse.

We stand behind a murderer when abused and when it's a woman. Or so it seems.

I'm sure there has been a few times I have pissed the hubby off so much, he wanted to just strangle me. And I know there have been several times, I wish I could punch him in his face. But, we don't. If any argument ever gets heated, we walk away. We chill out, calm down and talk about it later. Nothing is so serious to hurt anyone.

I think he could have played the whole abuse card if he hadn't posted it all over FaceBook. I know he lost me at that point and pretty sure a lot of others. Also, if he was so abused why wouldn't he just let her leave when she declared she was finished?

All in all, any sort of abuse from anyone should never be tolerated. If you or someone you know is dealing with abuse, you should contact 1-800-799-SAFE. These people will help you get out and help you start over with your life. Abuse is real.

Nonetheless, it's terrible this woman lost her life and this man took it. No matter what the situation, two people lost their lives on that terrible day.

Meet Diablo Blanco

Meet Diablo Blanco-

This is my youngest son, finger painting with Cocoa Pebbles in his room at 9:00 at night. He stole this cereal out of the pantry, on the top shelf without making a sound. I have three older children and never has any of them given me such a run for my money as this one. If he would have been a first, I'm sure he would have been an only child. Diablo Blanco, as we call him, is a a little terrorist. He is two years old and his terrible two's started at a year old and I'm pretty sure they will never end. Like ever. This kid screams for absolutely no reason. He can never behave in Wal-Mart. I'm that Mom that everyone hates. He'll scream and throw himself on the floor and it's not even over a "no" comment. Half the time, I don't even know what he is so pissed about and I don't really think he knows, either. Sometimes, I'll just stare at him, ask him where his parents are and run around the corner of the aisle. This usually snaps him out of his latest melt down and he will sit in the basket for 15 minutes without a word. And then he forgets. We're back to square ONE. He's just insane and driving me to drinking.
Another time, I was cleaning the kitchen. He was watching Mickey Mouse in the living room being awesome. It got eerily quiet and as I went to check on him I noticed he was missing. I ran around my house, yelling his name. Ran outside and yelled louder. Went back inside to grab my phone to call 911, because turning myself in now for losing a 2 year old seemed like a good way to claim my mother of the year award.
And then, I heard it. I slight snicker. A very quiet one. I went to the bathroom, the only place I hadn't checked thoroughly, ripped back the shower curtain and found this:

He looked up at me with this grin and I know exactly what he was thinking, "Hey Mom! I heard you the whole time, yelling for me and almost shitting your pants and I was right here the whole time. Silly Mommy." None, I repeat, NONE of my children have ever done this to me before. I have had pretty well behaved kids. Casanova was quiet and good with his occasional temper tantrums. Snoopy was a sweet little girl that walked 9 months and talked by 1 year, Her occasional craziness consisted of smearing her diaper all over the wall and drinking random liquids that had me calling poison control three times in 1 week. ScarFace was the best baby of all of them. He slept through the night at 1 month, rarely cried and played well by himself or with others. Very laid back kid then and now. Nothing, including Snoopy's antics, could've prepared me for this. This little crazy kid. The one they call Diablo Blanco. Anything this kid can do to scare me, he does it. Like jumping off the FireWork stand (Blame Uncle Scotty for that one) or climbing to the top bunk and jumping off to his brothers. He makes constant messes anywhere he goes and anytime of the day. And I'm about ready to sell him to the Circus. 

Until he does things like this: 

Or this:

Then he sucks you in with his sweetness. Don't be fooled, because it only lasts a short while. He will charm you and make you just fall in love with him. I must be paying for Hubby's raising because I was way too precious to be this devious. 

** How can you not love that kid...... Look at the SuperMan mask and the sweet hugs to his Great Grandpa. Damn it, kid. You did it again.**

Zombie Apocalypse

I met hubby for lunch today and as I was leaving I noticed an older Jeep Grand Cherokee with a green radiation sticker stating, "Zombie Outbreak Response Team."  I'm sure this is just a funny joke sticker playing along with the idea and fear of the once dead rising to terrorize us. I'm pretty sure people don't believe in Zombies. Do they really believe in Zombies?

I called one of my dear friends to laugh about this sticker and dumb people. She brought it to my attention that people in Africa really do believe. Not just like a horror movie or a joke, but more like a superstitious belief along with their religion. She also stated that in Africa, in fact, there has been documented accounts of true Zombies. This wasn't like the American fear of Zombie's. This was legit. These people do not believe in Western medicine. They believe in calling up the tribe's VooDoo Doctor aka Witch Doctor to fix any problem.

***ZOM-BIE: n. also ZOM-BIES pl. 1. An animated corpse that feeds on living human flesh. 2. A voodoo spell that raises the dead. 3. A Voodoo snake god. 4. One who moves or acts in a daze "like a zombie." [a word of West African origin] 
- Max Brooks, "The Zombie Survival Guide"***

I find this absolutely insane. On both sides of the world, the belief of Zombie's is true to some, but to me it's a Hollywood scary movie. That could never happen, right? People eating people. Hell, what about Hannibal Lector. He ate a man's face off. Poor guy actually survived that terrible incident. However, they are saying it was Marijuana and NOT bath salts that "made" this guy lose his mind and eat someone's face. I have never known a 'Stoner' to lose it like that or ever for that matter. Stoner's are chill people. They just want to be high and live in slow motion.

There is a brain parasite called Toxoplasma Gondii that is believed to be one way to turn Zombie. Upon a study of mice, healthy mice were put in a maze with different corners with various odors. One of those odors being a cat. The healthy mice would smell the cat and quickly get the hell out of Dodge. The infected mice didn't look different from the healthy mice and when the would come across the cat odor, they would stay with obvious intentions of dying. These parasites quietly live inside humans and since mice and humans have similar brains, it's estimated over half the earth is infected with this parasite. This is why if your eggo is preggo you should stray from changing kitty litter. Some scientists believe this parasite does effect it's host mice, cats and humans. Mice willingly dying and a jealous man are some of the believed side effects. Maybe that's what is wrong with Hubby. Maybe he's turning into a Zombie. Oh shit!

The CDC actually endorses the "Zombie Apocalypse" and tells you how to prepare for a Zombie ridden Earth.  In all actuality, the CDC is using something people believe in to help prepare for any disaster. Kinda brilliant if you ask me. People can be ignorant and people can have legitimate fears. Some believe in all sorts of VooDoo and a Zombie Apocalypse, while others believe in the Bible and Jesus returning for his whole hearted followers and leaving the world in literal hell.

Do I believe in Zombie's? No. I don't think any of the sort will ever happen. EVER. I do not believe "I Am Legend" or "Warm Bodies" is more than just a movie to scare the shit out of people. I went into labor with my middle son over "I Am Legend." If you want suspense, this is the movie.  Do I think you should always be prepared for a pandemic, terrorist attack or a natural disaster? Yes. Always should you prepare for any kind of emergency situation. We live in a scary world with scary things, but I do not think Zombie's are one of them.

What do you think? Do you believe in Zombie's?

CafeMom FAIL

 I have been a member with CafeMom since the dark ages and I love the place. I love that CafeMom is a "meeting place" for such diversity. There is definitely something for every mother and we ALL understand each other because we share a common bond.  However today, I was browsing a group and a certain post  made me laugh so hard and say, "What. In. The. Actual. Fuck?"

So, this crazy bee starts complaining how she found herself on a CafeMom Fail blog and she thinks it's so weird someone would 'blog' about her. She, like an ass hat, posted something VERY private on CafeMom. Such as, she had worms and needed to go to the doctor to have it cleared up.She said she obtained the worms by walking barefoot in the grass. But what GOT me was she was also on the fail site for admitting she masturbates with a hammer. A fucking hammer. Really?

Holy SHIT. This bitch is nuts.

Not only should you be worried about the health hazards of using this object in a sensitive area, i.e. getting splinters and possible tetanus, but what would even MAKE you want to "get off" with a hammer. You have issues, doll. You have issues.

There is also some other dumb idiot on there for sexcapades with her husband in front of her "cousin" and her husband's brother on vacation. She also talks about his tool. Seriously???

Another lady took a picture of her poor husband either taking a dump or "doing his thang" and posted it on CafeMom. Who does that?

Where are the Admins of the site regulating what's going on? I'll tell you, if you try to post a simple link about something related to a work at home thing or a blog, they will shut you down quick. Hey CafeMom, where the fuck are you? You are so quick to detect possible spam, but orgy's and masturbation techniques are not on your radar.

People, this is the internet. Everything you say, every picture you post will be there FOREVER! The women at CafeMom are NOT going to keep your darkest secrets and they most certainly will make it known that you are a moron. You are posting for the world to see. You are telling people, "Hey, look at me! I'm an idiot that needs a good cunt punt." I would like to say I am in shock, but people no longer amaze me. I just don't understand the idiocy and lack of common sense.

Nonetheless, I laughed. HARD. Good job, CafeMom Fails. You. Are. Awesome!

Crazy Baby Names

I was browsing around on Yahoo and came across this list about Celebrity Baby Names. Why would you ever name your baby Cricket? I know your name is "Busy Phillipps", but you couldn't have come up with a better name then some annoying insect. What is it with these celebs? You have all the money in the world and you already know, depending on your status, that your baby will be followed from birth until their melt-down teenage years. Have you ever thought to give your child a name that will not become a discussion topic to their on-call therapist?

I have to say Kimye's choice was far more ridiculous than Cricket. "North West" swish that around in your mouth. It makes me wonder if the child will turn in circles every time she hears her name. "Which way is North West?", "Oh that's me, 'kay!" Beyonce and Jay-Z, which I expected nothing less from them, named their kid "Blue Ivy." Don't you think some kids on the play ground would call her "Blue Waffle"?

When I had children, I really thought of every which way my kid's name could be made fun of or if the initials would be something like "A.S.S." My kids have semi-popular names, definitely not out of the ordinary. They are also not spelled with a crazy arrangements of letters. Example, Leah-Leygha or Michael-Mykal. This drives me insane and I feel so sorry for the child AND the teacher when roll is called. It reminds me of that joke. The name was 'Le-a'. Your first thoughts on pronunciation are "Le Ah, Le A, Lee, Li A" and when the teacher calls Mom and asks, "How do you pronounce your child's name?" The mom replies,"Lee-DASH-A, the dash don't be silent, lady!!"

I really think there should be some sort of vote from the birth certificate lady at the hospital. If you name your child something stupid or with screwed up letters, YOU get vetoed and the Birth Certificate lady gets to change it.I think that's what's wrong these days. We have too many "Apple's, Blue Ivy's, Cricket's and Le-a's" in this world. I'm all for originality, but let the name make since. You can't name your kid 'Rainbow and Unicorns' or something you would name a dog like "Krypto or Kneut". One day, these kids will grow up and you  will have to release them into the real world with corporate America. I just don't think I could allow a Doctor named Krypto work on me or a Lawyer named Rainbow. It just doesn't work.

What do you think about silly names?
