Tragic Omaha Shooting

You can go to pretty much any news website and find the story…..Nine dead and five injured in Omaha mall shooting. I don’t need to link anything.

The mall isn’t too far from our neighborhood. I heard a couple of stories from people who either missed the shooting by a few minutes (one had been in the store minutes before the shootings) or who had worked at the store and knew employees there. Omaha’s not an especially huge community, so there truly seems to be connections to everyone.

Trying to get in touch with loved ones was hard - the phone circuits were overloaded, so getting through was a miracle at best. Silly things like traffic jams truly called out that something was different as I was driving home from work, a trip that takes me right by the mall.

The shooter - a 19-year-old “troubled kid” - wanted to “go out in style” according to one of his “suicide notes.” I refuse to bring any kind of notoriety to his name, so you won’t see it listed here because that’s exactly what he wanted - he alerted another person in a communication “I’m going to be a star.” FUCK HIM. How dare he take the lives of innocent people to live out some twisted fantasy of his! If he wants to pull the trigger on himself, so be it…the world is likely a bit safer without this maniac in it. But based on the frantic family members trying to learn about their loved ones, this jerk affected many, many people in a very profound and sad way. My heart goes out to those family members and friends who lost someone in this senseless act of violence. Also for those who were traumatized by this act, and for those rescue workers and police officers who are undoubtedly impacted by this. I will be praying for all of you!

I’ll be honest. I’m tired of the bullshit excuses already coming in. He was troubled, he was depressed, he had a rough life. Think about it - how many people in life are troubled, depressed, and have experienced challenging issues? There are many…and they don’t shoot people in an effort to gain notoriety or “popularity.” This was someone extremely broken, sick and disgustingly selfish and self-serving. I understand he’s a son, he’s a friend, but he’s also a MURDERER. He CERTAINLY didn’t think of his friends or his family when he selfishly pulled the trigger, while looking into the terrified faces of those he decided to shoot. THAT will be the bullshit notoriety he’s leaving behind.

The Other Terrorists


Riley Ann Sawyers, age two. Murdered by her mother and stepfather.

In a statement to police included in the affidavit, Trenor, 19, said she and Zeigler, 24, killed Riley July 24.

The girl was beaten with leather belts, had her head held underwater in a bathtub and then was thrown across a room, her head slamming into a tile floor, Trenor said in the document. She said they kept the body in a storage shed for one to two months before they put it in a plastic bin and dumped it into Galveston Bay.

Why isn’t there a Gitmo for these types of people?

Stories like this are why leftist squeals about waterboarding fall on my deaf ears. Just watch, these two oxygen wasters will probably get light sentences for involuntary manslaughter. They surely won’t get the death penalties that they both richly deserve.

If their burned bodies were hanging from a Fallujah bridge, I would rightfully declare “Screw ‘em.”

Turkey Earns Stay


This guy is an escapee from the turkey farm next door to us. He’s been wandering around the woods that separates us from the farm, and has recently become bold enough to come right up to the house.

I was inside steamcleaning carpets last weekend and the boys were in the basement watching the BIG GAME! (U of M vs. Ohio) I noticed him walk by and grabbed my camera. After I got my pictures, I chased him back into the woods and went back to my steamcleaning. When it was time for me to have a beer, I went downstairs and headed to the patio through the furnace room. I opened the door and that damned bird was RIGHT THERE! I slammed the door in his face, scaring me like that!

A very dear friend of mine is going to introduce Butterball here to his maker this weekend. The turkey farm owner said we’d be doing him a favor and the the ol’ tom probably misses his 10,000 friends! We’ll freeze him until either New Year or Super Bowl, when I’ll make my first ever attempt at deep fried turkey.

Happy Thanksgiving all!

Good News!

This is good news:

LEXINGTON, Neb. — A female schoolteacher was arrested in Mexico and the 13-year-old boy she allegedly ran away with was turned over to his relatives, a prosecutor said Saturday.

Kelsey Peterson, a 25-year-old sixth-grade math teacher and basketball coach at Lexington Middle School, was arrested in Mexicali, a city on the border with California, Dawson County Attorney Elizabeth Waterman said.

They were found and apprehended by Mexican authorities without incident Friday evening. Peterson was in FBI custody and transported back to the U.S. early Saturday, and the boy was released to relatives in Mexico, Waterman said.

What’s with this whole teacher and young student thing….and female teachers with boys? I mean, I remember the whole “boy student having a crush on his female teacher thing,” but while it used to be the teachers had a level of maturity and common sense about them and never entertained the idea of fulfilling that boy’s fantasy, now these women seem to have lost that discretion. I could never have imagined being interested in an 8th grade boy when I was 25. How disgusting is *that*??????????

Throw the book at this woman, please. I would never want my son or daughter exposed to such a poor example of an adult.

AMEN, Brother!

Oklahoma Lawmaker Objects to Getting Koran as Gift
Monday, October 22, 2007

OKLAHOMA CITY — An Oklahoma lawmaker is objecting to getting a copy of the Koran from the Governor’s Ethnic American Advisory Council.

“I object to the use of the state Centennial Seal and the state Seal all in an effort to further their religion,” state Representative Rex Duncan said Monday.

As well he should!

Duncan also wrote his colleagues that he rejected the gift because “most Oklahomans do not endorse the idea of killing innocent women and children in the name of ideology.”

Most HUMANS do not endorse the idea of killing innocent women and children in the name of ideology!

Marjaneh Seirafi-Pour, chairwoman of the governor’s council and a Muslim, said she received a call from Duncan wondering whether state money was used to buy the books.

She told the Tulsa World newspaper that members of the Muslim community paid for the copies.

A reasonable question. Lord knows you can’t use taxpayer dollars to purchase Bibles!

“We are not trying to force anything on anyone. This is a peaceful, thoughtful project to introduce ourselves to leaders,” she said.

The “peaceful” religion….and don’t you F-ING forget it!

Earlier, lawmakers also received a copy of the Bible sponsored by The Baptist General Convention in Oklahoma.

“Mine is proudly on my desk on the Capitol and I don’t think I ever read a part of it that condones the killing of women and children in furtherance of God’s word,” Duncan said. “It’s one of the nicest things I’ve received in my three years in the Legislature.”

Amen, brother….amen!

Ellen and the Great Dog Debacle

Anyone that knows me knows that I am not really a fan of Ellen Degenerate, er, DeGeneres. Do I think she should read her paperwork more closely when adopting a dog? Sure I do. Do I think the animal wackos she dealt with are a bunch of idiots? ABSOLUTELY. But I never would have adopted a dog from them because I DO read the fine print…one of the many reasons why I choose not to adopt from our not-so-humane society locally.

LOS ANGELES — Ellen DeGeneres is in the doghouse with a pet rescue agency after giving a pooch away to her hairdresser because it didn’t get along with her cats.

The talk show hostess and her partner Portia de Rossi adopted Iggy, a Brussels Griffon mix, on Sept. 20. But when things did not work out, DeGeneres gave the dog to her hairdresser.

In doing so, DeGeneres violated an agreement with the Mutts and Moms agency by not informing them of the handoff.

When the agency called DeGeneres to ask about Iggy, she said she found another home for the dog. The agency sent a representative to the hairdresser’s home Sunday and took the dog away.

Mind you, they took the dog out of a home that DeGeneres knew would be a good home for the dog and away from two young children who bonded with the dog. …and you say you are in the “animal rescue” business?!?!? Yeah, right.

DeGeneres went public with the doggy ordeal Monday while taping an episode of her show to air Tuesday. She admitted she didn’t read all the paperwork involving the adoption.

C’mon Ellen…you’ve been in business for how long and you didn’t look at the paperwork, or have one of “your people” look at it? Not a wise decision, Ellen, which is why this mess is now a mess.

DeGeneres said she spent $3,000 having the dog neutered and trained to be with her cats. But the dog had too much energy and was too rambunctious, she told her television audience.

“I guess I signed a piece of paper that says if I can’t keep Iggy, it goes back to the rescue organization, which is not someone’s home, which is not a family,” she said in a show transcript provided to The Associated Press.

“I thought I did a good thing. I tried to find a loving home for the dog because I couldn’t keep it.”

See, Ellen, the animal wackos you dealt with don’t think you are capable of making a good decision about your pet. So even though you had the best of intentions, you aren’t in the business of “animal rescue” like they are so of course you are wrong [and you *did* violate that little agreement thingy, too…I’m not forgetting about that little tidbit]. They would prefer to put this animal back into their shelter so they can keep their little statistics up, keep your money and get an adoption fee from someone else. Their little piece of paper just proves that they believe that you can’t even own a pet on your own - that they have to have you sign a piece of paper so they can have a piece of you for the rest of the dog’s life.

They should do the right thing and take that dog back to those two broken-hearted kids who will likely give the dog more love and attention than a shelter that probably needs to confine the animal a good portion of the day. That’s animal rescue alright. How about making a rational choice that’s good for the dog versus your stupid rules? Not capable of independent thought or rationalization? Hmmmmm…

Don’t get me wrong, ultimately Ellen’s lack of attention to the paperwork caused all of this, but it just proves to me that people in the animal rescue business aren’t always in it for the best interest and welfare of an animal if they can’t evaluate a situation like this any better. It costs nothing for Ellen to bring the dog to a good home. It will cost money and hardship for the dog dragging him back to the shelter. But it sure supports the cause on paper, doesn’t it?!? One more in that column for “rescued animal” is what it looks like from here.

Chester Arthur Stiles, Videotaped, alleged child rapist, but still a convicted douche. Coming soon to a Pound Me In The Ass Prison Near You

Chester Arthur Stiles, the man identified in a videotape “allegedly” raping a three year old girl, has been arrested by police.

LAS VEGAS - Police said late Monday they had arrested Chester “Chet” Arthur Stiles, the man accused of videotaping himself while raping a 3-year-old girl.

So much for his ex-girlfriend’s claim that he’d “never be taken alive by the police.”

And what a pity it is that he was taken alive by the police. On the other hand, if convicted and sent to prison, we have the gratification of knowing that he’ll be on the receiving end of the horrors he visited (allegedly, conveniently videotaped) on a three year old girl.

What Did He Do to Deserve This?

Of course he did NOTHING. He’s a 13-year-old child!

A Houston couple was charged Friday with the starvation and abuse of a 13-year-old boy they kept locked in their attic, MyFoxHouston reported.

Geneva Foster, the boy’s mother, and Michael Ryan, his stepfather, were arrested and charged with felony injury to a child for keeping the boy locked in a closet or attic without food, MyFoxHouston reported.

These miscreants also had four other children in their house, but they didn’t appear to be abused like this boy. What could this boy have done to deserve the treatment he got?

The boy also showed signs of brutal physical abuse — broken bones, bite scars and damage to his liver, pancreas and kidneys, according to the Harris County Sheriff’s Office.

A spokeswoman for Child Protective Services told MyFoxHouston that the boy weighed only 72 pounds and had the appearance of a 7-year-old when he was discovered, and that his only nourishment came from cans of diet supplement Ensure.

There has to be a special place in hell for people who would do something like this to a child. I think it’s awful no matter what, but the fact that this child was the mother’s OWN FLESH AND BLOOD makes it that much more disgusting to me. I pray that this boy finds some healing hugs and love…he’s going to need a lot of love and care to get through what has happened to him. He will carry these scars the rest of his life. How DARE these monsters do this to him!!! If I was in the position of handing out punishments, I’d lock these assholes in an attic with a case of diet Ensure, hire someone to beat the shit out them and conveniently lose the key. I hope they NEVER see the outside of prison ever again for what they have done.

Chester Arthur Stiles Puts “Survivalist” Skills To The Test

New development in the search for Chester Arthur Stiles:

Seems like our search for Chester Arthur Stiles at the Salvation Army Shelter yesterday might have borne some fruit. A half-hour after we showed Stiles’ mug shot to people at the shelter, the security guard we spoke to thinks he spots Stiles - so he calls Metro. Witnesses say that person walked up to where the mug shot was posted on the wall, took one look at it, and then turned and ran away. He was chased down the street by a group of 20-30 homeless people, who lost the man near the train tracks behind Jerry’s Nugget Casino in North Town.

Metro showed up and interviewed people that claim to have seen Stiles. They told me today that they are not certain it was a valid sighting but they are not discounting it either.

But one thing is for certain, Stiles will have a tougher time now blending in with the homeless. Shelter staff made copies of the mug shot we gave them and I’m told Stiles’ picture is posted at churches, soup kitchens, and bars in the area.

Wait a second here. I thought this guy was a “survivalist” who is “very, very, dangerous” and carried a “combat-style knife.” Why would he run? We know he fancied himself as a Navy SEAL, so why didn’t he stand his ground and go down fighting? His ex-girlfriend told the media that “he’d never be taken by the police.”

Maybe it’s because he wasn’t facing defenseless three year old girls.

While there is a slim possibility that some drunken tourist, broke from constantly losing at the roulette wheel, wandered into the shelter and thought he saw himself in the mug shot and ran, it’s probably not very likely.

Assuming it was our man Chet, and considering the possibility that at least some of the homeless chasing him were Vietnam vets, he’s very, very lucky he escaped intact.

Chester Arthur Stiles, Videotaped, alleged child rapist, but still a convicted douche. If you see this man, remember, he’s been trained to run really, really fast, so keep Las Vegas police on speed dial

Hunting Subhumans

KVBC (Las Vegas) reporter Jesse Corona is on the prowl for Chester Arthur “Chet” Stiles, the man seen in the four year old video molesting a three year old little girl.

We even talked to someone who claims she’s seen Stiles more recently.

Man from Salvation Army: He was here yesterday.

Jesse Corona: Yesterday?

Man from Salvation Army: Yeah. He stays here

Shelter staff posted Stiles’ mug shot on the wall. Reaction to hearing what he was wanted for was extreme. Many of the residents indicated if they found him first, he would be in rough shape by the time Metro was called.

Sounds to me like Chester Stiles isn’t the “survivalist” that he’s been made out to be. It also seems that he really isn’t all that impervious to a lack of electricity and water as was originally implied. But watch out, he carries a knife! Combat style, even!

I stand by what I said in my earlier post:

No, I believe Stiles is holed up in some seedy roach infested domicile with a neon sign that reads “otel” in the dark and that advertises weekly rates. Either that, or he’s holed up with a pedophile buddy. These scumbags stick together, just ask NAMBLA. I’d also guess he bundles up to go out in public, and scurries around furtively wondering if that convenience store clerk recognized his face.

While the Salvation Army isn’t necessarily a seedy roach infested domicile, it sure isn’t the Bellagio.

I also agree with Jesse Corona’s take on the mother that was posted on his blog which I linked above:

Tuesday we got the news the mother of the child victim would be issuing a statement through her attorney in an 11:30 press conference. The gist of that conference was that the mother wanted her family to be left alone and given space by the media. She (through her attorney) says she is worried about her daughter being victimized through the media. When I asked her attorney what about the actual victimization of her daughter that took place 4 years ago, (how could she not have seen any signs or known what was going on?) her attorney said he didn’t want to speculate, but she just didn’t. He also said she was a hard-working single mother who worked six days a week and left her child in the care of a nanny.

The mother speculates the abuse happened during that time, but also says Stiles was a distant family friend and never a caretaker. Mom also says she didn’t see any of the EXTENSIVE news coverage on every TV channel in every newspaper and had to be told her daughter was the girl in the video by a family friend.

Questions, questions. Why does Mom have to issue statements through an attorney? What exactly is a “distant family friend?” What about the nanny? If this happened when Mom was at work, didn’t this occur when the nanny was in charge? What did the nanny know and when did h/she know it?

The “hard working single mother who works six days a week” thing smells of “excuse” to me. What are they trying to convey, that only married, unemployed parents would notice that their three year old daughter was being abused sexually? Or the lazy single mother who only works 5 days a week, she’d notice?

Chester Arthur Stiles, Not The SEAL You Thought He Was: If You See This Man, Turn Him Over To The Las Vegas Salvation Army, Then Call The Las Vegas Police, But Wait Awhile

Oh, and thanks to commenter Sammii, Chester Arthur “Chet” Stiles was never a Navy SEAL

The quarry of a nationwide police manhunt, accused of videotaping himself raping a 3-year old girl, was never a Navy SEAL as he claimed and authorities have reported, the Navy said Tuesday.

It’s too bad for Mr. Stiles. He’s going to really need some survival skills once he hits the penitentiary.

“…she had taken good care of the children…”

…so is that why she drown them both in the bathtub?

CLEVELAND — A 2-year-old girl and her 4-year-old sister were apparently drowned in a bathtub Monday, and their mother was arrested, police said.

A man who said he is the girls’ father told investigators the woman called him at work and said their children “are at peace,” said Cleveland police Lt. Thomas Stacho.

Another tragic end to the lives of two beautiful children at the hands of a parent. I’m certain she’s going to pull out the “Andrea Yates” M.O. - I was depressed, the devil made me do it, BLAH, BLAH, BLAH.

Deondra Hurt, 19, who lives in the same two-story apartment building, said she heard the girls’ father screaming and shouting. She later went to the apartment and saw their mother “on a couch, and she was just sitting there. She was a nice girl. It’s real sad.”

Stacho said the girls apparently drowned, but autopsies were pending Tuesday to officially determine the causes of death. The county coroner was trying to confirm the victims’ correct names Monday.

Hurt said the woman had taken good care of the children.

“She always had her kids dressed up, with hair done every day,” Hurt said. “They were well-behaved kids. They played jump rope and would write on the ground with chalk.”

Yep, Andrea Yates took care of her kids, too. And now she’s living the rest of her life sharing fond memories about her children…yes, the children she methodically murdered by drowning them in the bathtub. She’s not in prison, but in an institution because she was found “not guilty” by reason of insanity. I’m guessing that will be the plea in this case as well. In the mean time, please say a prayer for the two little girls who no longer breathe, play, or dress up. They will never see their 5th birthday. They will never have a boyfriend, they won’t be cheerleaders, they won’t ever marry, go to school, or have children of their own. Thanks, Mom.

Mary Winkler Gets Supervised Visits With Her Children

So I read on Fox News that Mary Winkler will be getting supervised visits with her children. You may not recall, but Mary Winkler was the “wife” who shot her minister husband IN THE BACK, let him bleed to death for 20 minutes while these children were IN THE HOUSE (emphasis mine).

A psychologist at Winkler’s trial testified she suffers from post-traumatic stress syndrome because of domestic abuse coupled with emotional damage from the death of a favored sister years earlier.

Winkler told the judge she wants to be reunited with her daughters to help them deal with the emotional trauma of their father’s death. The children are in the temporary custody of Matthew Winkler’s parents who want to adopt them over their mother’s objections.

That is just rich. She wants to help them deal with the emotional trauma of their father’s death?!?!?! How the hell is *that* conversation going to start out? “Kids, I know I shot your father in the back and killed him while you were in the house, but let’s get over it and move on. Care for some more spaghetti?” WTF? They should remain in the custody of Matthew Winkler’s parents who have every friggin’ right to be upset about this scenario. The children have only seen her a couple of times since she murdered her husband (who, of course is being accused of abusing her even though he now has no ability to defend himself and she never filed any kind of report while he was living).

Keith Ablow, a forensic psychiatrist, told the judge that Winkler’s mental condition is still unstable though she has undergone counseling since her conviction and is taking medication.

“I have no confidence that we know where Mrs. Winkler is clinically today, let alone six weeks from now or six years from now,” said Ablow, who has a syndicated TV show bearing his name.

I’m sure this is the reason for “supervised visits” but supervised visits, if they are perceived to go well will move to the next level, and so on. How can this be in the best interests of these children? Please, can someone explain that to me???

Mary Winkler said “”We can begin healing together and let God guide us.” I would not be surprised if some idiotic judge awards this woman full custody of these kids. GOD HELP THEM if it happens. They are going to need all the help they can get.

“The Hidden War” (Not So Hidden!)

My man is now published!

Please check out his published column over at KFAB’s website (not because I told you to, but because it is a must read and it is GOOD!!!)!

Update: ptg is at it again! But really, Scott, listen to him…he knows what he is talking about…you need “linkability!!!”

Wisdom from a 10-Year-Old Boy

My son sees this headline:

Man Dies After Armless Man Headbutts Him During Fight

After he laughs a minute he wittingly says: “Wow…now *that’s* a way to use your head!”

I almost spit my Coke across the room! Can’t get much funnier than that!

A Memo from the Desk of God to Ernie Chambers

To: Senator Ernie Chambers-NE

From: The Desk of God

Subj: Thou hast sued Me

Ernie Chambers, Senator from Nebraska, it has been brought to My attention that thou hast sued me. Why hast thou forsaken Me?

Thou accuseth Me…

…“of making and continuing to make terroristic threats of grave harm to innumerable persons, including constituents of Plaintiff who Plaintiff has the duty to represent.”

Thou hast stated I…

…caused, “fearsome floods, egregious earthquakes, horrendous hurricanes, terrifying tornadoes, pestilential plagues, ferocious famines, devastating droughts, genocidal wars, birth defects, and the like.”

I recalleth the “terrifying tornado” of 1975, and how I spared thou from death. Doest thou have selective memory, Senator Ernie Chambers?

Thou hast also stated I…

…caused, “calamitous catastrophes resulting in the wide-spread death, destruction and terrorization of millions upon millions of the Earth’s inhabitants including innocent babes, infants, children, the aged and infirm without mercy or distinction.”

Senator Chambers, thou hast stated that I did not respond to multiple requests of contact and that I did not respond to your call of “Come out, come out, wherever you are.” Senator Chambers, reaching me is possible just by folding your hands in prayer. How soon thou forgets the numerous prayers sent up to Me regarding the elimination of term limits. That was thou, was it not?

Lastly, thou hast stated the Lord your God…

…“has manifested neither compassion nor remorse, proclaiming that Defendant “will laugh” when calamity comes.

Senator Chambers, thou hast uttered a partial truth in your statement. I will, indeed, “laugh” when your term limit commeth to an end.
