7)Jillian Jacobson- This 31 year old teacher from Placentia, CA killed herself this week in a tragic end that also claimed the life of her father, who also killed himself years earlier. Suicide is an awful thing, and some people are either too sick, mentally or physically to continue, and to them I have my support. This idiot on the other hand decided to off herself at school by hanging herself so her students found her. WTF? Yeah, no trauma there for your students. If you want kill yourself, please do, but do so in your own home please.
6)Peeps Milk- You read that right. If you ever thought, "Hey what if we combined milk with the grossest, sweetest, most disgusting candy on the face of the Earth," do I have a treat for you. Coming this Easter to a store near you is Peeps milk which will be Peeps flavored and may single handedly cause diabetes rates to skyrocket by Summer. I would rather drink motor oil than that.
3)Bob Menedez- Showing I do not just pick on Republicans, this senator from NJ is being investigated for corruption charges which is not the first time either. This is from Politico.com:
A federal grand jury in New Jersey has for months been investigating Menendez’s interactions with Salomon Melgen, a close friend and financial backer of the senator, prompting Menendez to rack up hundreds of thousands in legal bills as the probe intensified. A New Jersey newspaper reported this week that several Menendez aides declined to answer questions before the grand jury, citing a constitutional privilege that covers the New Jersey Democrat and other lawmakers and staff.
In 2009 and 2012, Menendez intervened with top officials at the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services — the agency that oversees the Medicare program — about a CMS ruling that Melgen had overbilled the Medicare program by nearly $9 million. Melgen has repaid those funds. FBI agents and investigators from the Department of Health and Human Services have searched the Florida ophthalmologist’s offices twice as part of the probe.
Other actions by Menendez have also come under scrutiny. He contacted the State and Commerce departments for help in pressuring the Dominican Republic’s government to honor a contract with a port security company owned by Melgen. The senator had traveled repeatedly on Melgen’s private plane, and Menendez was forced to repay $70,000 from his own pocket for some unreported flights after they came to light.
Melgen has also donated heavily to Menendez’s campaigns, including $700,000 in 2012 to a Democratic super PAC that spent heavily to help the senator secure reelection.
Can he survive another probe? He has been Teflon in the past and the public pays little attention to these kinds of things when they really should be, but anything is possible.
1)Ferguson Police and the Police in general- I have to admit, I didn't think it was possible for the Ferguson Police Department to be as racist as it was. Wow, talk about a complete breakdown which will almost certainly lead to the dissolution of that department as there will be no faith in them from no one no matter what. That ship has sailed. Previous posts went into great detail about the total racism that prevailed there and they were horrific. But it's not just them and this may be rampant throughout the country. The NYPD recently tweeted that the reason so many innocent people were being shot in the city is "due to people off their meds walking into the bullets." Yeah, it's not the fact that you guys are the worst shots in the nations, incapable of hitting a target more than 40% of the time at a range of six feet or less. That's pathetic. Michael J Fox could do better. I have an idea that maybe we should disband ALL police forces nationwide and replace them with private security forces with much less power. This experiment has been tried in Sharpstown, TX with a population of 66,000, so not a small burg or anything. After they disbanded the department, they saved over $200,000 and crime dropped by 61%. They did this by doing things cops used to do like walk a beat or patrol a specific area. Now, cops are little more than revenue generators and tax collectors. They are actually making things worse. So let's have a little common sense, get rid of the cops, hire private contractors (who will make less money saving taxpayers a fortune) and watch as our society becomes even less violent and a whole lot less racist. End the War On Drugs with it and we could really clean up this world. So congratulations police, you are rapidly becoming persona non grata and are indeed douchebag of the week.
