If you are suspect of committing a crime that it is going to land you in life in prison without the possibility of parole, you would not do what this guy did as reported by as reported by Fox News.
“Authorities in South Florida say a man is charged with murder because he was overheard discussing the killing when his cellphone pocket-dialed 911.
The Broward Sheriff’s Office says 24-year-old Scott Simon is charged with first-degree murder in the May 5 shooting of 33-year-old Nicholas Walker. Walker was shot while driving his car onto an Interstate 95 on-ramp.
Authorities say Simon is heard on the 911 call telling someone he’s going to follow the victim home and kill him. But investigators say they believe Simon coordinated the killing and did not pull the trigger himself.
The shooting happened after Walker got into an argument with other men at a Waffle House restaurant. Authorities are still looking for two other suspects”
Unfortunately, for him, he did not have a chase to get away. His stupidity with using his phone cost him to spend the rest of his life in Florida prison. In conclusion, be careful of what happens when you pocket-dial somebody on your phone.
Conservative opinion writer has this to say about the Virginia Lt. Gov
The Virginia Republican Party was already taking a risk, dumping a gubernatorial primary election in favor of a convention, in order to assure the ideologically emphatic Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli II the nomination. Then on Saturday, a small turnout of party die-hards picked a nominee for lieutenant governor who is nothing short of outrageous.

African American lawyer-turned preacher E.W. Jackson has called gays “perverted” and “very sick people psychologically, mentally and emotionally.” He has said the president has “Muslim sensibilities.” He has compared Planned Parenthood to the KKK. He previously got less than 5 percent of the vote in the GOP primary for U.S. Senate in 2012. He is by any definition an extremist, someone who could not muster even minimal support from GOP primary voters”
Where does the GOP dig up these people. I mean seriously. If the GOP wants to move from the Stone Age to 21st Century, then pick social moderates that actually have broad social appeal while also believe in pro-business fiscal conservative views that strive for innovation and smart regulation of business. In addition, one that views climate change as a strategic risk for business as long-term threat to profitability and therefore, will introduce market incentives to deal with climate change instead of heavy-handed government regulations.
Does that make it more sense than dig up some crazy nutbag that will get spoofed on the Daily Show by Jon Stewart than actually has a shot of winning. The GOP keeps kicking themselves in the behind because they refuse to elect social moderate, pro-business candidates in the vein of Jon Huntsman and Chris Christie. They should have easily won the senate, but instead they keep electing nutbags like this.
Rick Perry think he is a badass just because he shoots an assault weapon. I don’t understand why conservatives think that machismo. guns increase your maniliness by firing a gun.
From the video, it appears that real men are true badasses if they can shoot an automatic gun. Such advertising is dangerous and can lead to others to engage to dangerous activities with guns. I do not think it lead to more crime, but there is significantly higher risk of gun accidents with a such casual attitude towards guns.

Hollywood too has its history of couching tigers and hidden dragons. Only, nobody screams about it since it’s seen as part of biz. Arnold Schwarzenegger, Don Johnson, Steven Seagal may be just a handful of Hollywood celebrities who have been accused of sexual harassment in the recent past.
According to Kevin Brownwing, a film historian who wrote a book on the Hollywood sex pests (The Golden Grope – A History of Hollywood Harassment), the couch can be traced back to the silent era itself. To the venerable Charles Chaplin himself who, he writes, was probably the first prominent star to institutionalise the couch as an ‘official’ mode of selection.
Writes Brownwing: “Apparently, Charles would only communicate with the actress he was auditioning via caption cards and mime, supposedly to test their ability to ‘perform’ in silent movies. The cards would become ever more lewd and suggestive as he got them to undress, and he would fondle their breasts in an exaggerated silent movie acting manner… eventually, he would get them to stand naked and throw custard pies at them…”
And the selection process? He would insist they perform entirely in mime and if they cried out (as they inevitably did), he would tell them they had failed the audition!
Brownwing further talks about Clark Gable who had to engage in oral sex with fellow MGM player William Haynes to establish himself at the studio and John Wayne who would ‘test’ young bewildered hopefuls by appearing before them clad only in a Stetson and a pair of pearl-handled Colt.45s holstered in his gunb”
I guess there was some scandalous things you had to do to get a role. Personally, would I like to suck a dick or wear my underwear in a homoerotic way in order to get a studio? The answer is no because I am not into the homoerotic thing, but I guess if desperate to get a break in Hollywood, you will do anything to get a role.
I guess job hunting will not be that Wall Street Journal )
America’s job market hasn’t been this feeble since the economy started adding jobs regularly two years ago.
The latest data show the U.S. economy added an average of 75,000 jobs per month between April and June. That’s paltry compared with the average of 225,000 jobs notched in the first three months of the year. Worse, it’s the weakest quarter for job growth since the third quarter of 2010, when the economy lost an average of 45 jobs each month.
After this past quarter, the next weakest is July-to-September 2011, when the economy added an average of 128,000 jobs–a relatively healthy figure and one high enough to at least keep unemployment from rising.
Clearly, America’s job market has lost the momentum it had early this year. And as we pointed out on June 25, this weakness on jobs is outweighing the boost to consumers’ wallets from lower gasoline prices. Proof? Check out June’s retail sales figures, which grew at the slowest pace in over two years”
That is not going to be easy job market for me to deal with. Who wants to employ me with all of my problems.
“A Kansas City woman was charged Saturday with abusing her 10-year-old daughter who weighed just 32 pounds when she was found locked in a closet that reeked of urine.
The 29-year-old woman faces charges of assault and child abuse and endangerment in Jackson County Circuit Court. The Associated Press is not naming the mother to protect the child’s identity. Prosecutors are requesting that bond be set at $200,000.
Officers freed the girl after responding Friday morning to a call to a child abuse hotline. Neighbors told police that they didn’t know the malnourished child taken from the public housing complex even lived there.
When officers first arrived, two women told the officers that the mother had left about 20 minutes earlier with two girls, whom they described as “clean and well fed,” a Kansas City officer said in the probable cause statement.
A social services worker said there should be three children at the home. But the women insisted, “No, we have lived here for several years, and she only has two daughters that stay here, and we have never seen the other girl, but we heard she stays with the father or an aunt,” the probable cause statement said.
Officers ultimately made their way into the apartment, where they found a portable crib pushed up against a bedroom closet, which was tied closed. The officers asked if anyone was inside, and a child’s voice answered “yes,” the probable cause statement said.
The girl told officers that her mother took her sisters out to breakfast, but she didn’t go because “she messes herself.”
The girl was transported to a Children’s Mercy Hospital, where she was diagnosed with multiple skin injuries. Hospital staff said she had gained just 6 pounds since she last was at the hospital six years earlier.
The girl told detectives who interviewed her at the hospital that her mother puts her in the closet “a lot,” that she doesn’t get to eat every day and that she “does not want to go back home anymore.” The girl also said she gets in trouble “because she keeps peeing on herself” and her mother will “punch her on her back real hard,” according to the probable cause statement.
The mother was arrested later Friday and the two younger children were placed in protective custody. The mother told police she doesn’t let the 10-year-old leave the house because she knows the girl is malnourished and would “get in trouble if someone saw her
This is one of the revolting cases of child abuse that I have ever seen in my life. This is pure child neglect at its worst. I hope that she gets in life in prison for these crimes.
