A Slap To America's Face

A good friend of mine and a very good Griper sent over the picture to the left along with a Gripe that I just had to post.  If this doesn't anger you, nothing will....

Calling ALL Patriotic Americans...I stumbled across this REPULSIVE pic yesterday nite & was OUTRAGED!  I'm ACRIMONIOUS, I'm INCENSED & I WANT it REMOVED IMMEDIATELY!  Please chime in on this DESPICABLE DESECRATION of Lady Liberty!  Tell facebook that we're MAD as HELL,we're NOT gonna STAND 4 it & we want it taken DOWN...the DEFENSE rests!

This picture was posted on Facebook by a woman in one of the Scandinavian countries.  This really offended him so he replied to this woman that he would like to to take it down.  Of course she would not so here we are.  All I have to say is, WHAT! WHAT!  ARE YOU FREAKIN' KIDDING ME!  This picture of lady liberty wearing a niqab and holding the Koran makes me wanna puke.  The niqab is worn by Arab women in the Muslim world to hide their faces in public especially in the presence of men.  This pin headed woman who posted this picture should get on her knees and pray to Lady Liberty because the US of A bailed out Europe in World War II.  If it wasn't for us, this bimbo would be under Nazi rule and most likely would not be able to access the Internet.  Now I know some of you might say, "People have the right to post whatever they want on FB".  Well, maybe they do.  However, all of us that are offended by this slanderous mockery of Lady Liberty also have the right to complain to Facebook.  This picture is offensive to me and should be offensive to all Americans across our great nation.  If you are on Facebook, drop them a line to protest this picture.  Tell them that this disgraceful picture is an insult to all Americans and it will not be tolerated.

Doubled Barrel Killers

Vice President Joe Biden along with a group of other somewhat intelligent people met in Washington a couple of weeks ago to come up with a plan regarding assault weapons.  After reading their recommendations I believe that they dropped the ball.  The fumbled at the goal line like Cleveland Browns running back Ernest Byner in the 1987 AFC Championship game against the Denver Broncos.  They slipped up because there is one assault weapon that they have totally forgotten.  This weapon is so appealing and so deadly, but openly common in society today.  In fact, there have been numerous murders committed all over the world which have gone somewhat unnoticed.  I have written about this before, warning people about this lethal double barreled killer.  Here are just a few examples of what can happen with these weapons are in the hands of the wrong person.

Donna Lange, a 51-year-old woman from Everett, Wash.,  suffocated her boyfriend to death with her breasts on Saturday, Jan. 12, according to Seattle's KIRO 7 Eyewitness News. Deputies, called to the Airport Inn trailer park at 12:45 a.m. for a disturbance report, found medics performing CPR on Lange's 51-year-old alleged boyfriend, who was later pronounced dead at Swedish Hospital.  Kiro 7 reports that witnesses claims they saw Lange throw her boyfriend down in the back of the mobile home. She was later found by witnesses with her chest covering the victim's face. Police noted the size difference between Lange and her boyfriend -- she was 5-feet, 6-inches and 192 pounds, he was 5-feet, 7-inches and 175 pounds.  

In November, German lawyer Tim Schmidt claimed his girlfriend tried to smother him with her 38DD breasts. Schmidt said she pretended it was a sex game, the Daily Mail reported. "I asked her why she wanted to smother me to death with her breasts and she told me: 'Treasure – I wanted your death to be as pleasurable as possible,'" he said.  The 33-year-old woman was reportedly accused of "attempted manslaughter with a weapon," according to the Daily Mail.

A U.K. mother of three nearly smothered her boyfriend with her 40LL breasts while they were having sex in 2010, CBS reported via News of the World. She mistook his flailing for excitement, until she noticed that he had stopped moving and appeared to not be breathing.  He was revived by paramedics and lives to tell the tale today.

Make no mistake here, weapons of the 40DD and 38DD caliber can be deadly in the hands of a deranged owner.  If the 42 and higher caliber are brought out, entire armies can be brought to their knees just by the sight of them.  These double barreled bosoms of carnage can be hidden in plain view but when released from their holsters they are like Howitzers.  They have been referred to as B-52's, Bazookas, Canons, and Sherman Tanks.  What I want to know is why hasn't the media picked up on this epidemic of death so people all around the world can be aware of them.  It's time for everyone to open up a dialog concerning these murder melons.  It's time for our leaders in Washington to add these killing Kabombas to the assault weapons list.

Manti Te'o - What's The Issue Here?

It's all over the news.  CNN, MSN, ABC, NBC, CBS, ESPN even the EIEIO are covering the Manti Te'o story.  If your head has been buried in the sand for the past week or so, it appears that Notre Dame standout Linebacker Manti Te'o has been involved in some sort of perpetrated scam.  It seems that Te'o may have had what we all thought was an online and telephone romance with a woman named Lennay Kekua.  You will notice here that I will be using words like may, supposedly, allegedly and possibly since nothing is really clear on this debacle.  At a point in this relationship, Te'o claims that he received a call from her number where an individual stated that Kekua had passed away from Leukemia right around the same time his grandmother died.  Even after all of this heartache, Manti played like a Champion and became the runner up for the bogus Heisman Trophy.  He also won several other college football awards including the Butkis and Bednarik trophies.  Our hearts wept with Te'o and we admired him as a warrior on the field.

Jack Swarbrick
On December 26th, Te'o approached his coaches and told them that Lennay Kekua was not a real person and he had been duped.  This prompted Notre Dame officials to hire an out side firm to do a thorough investigation on the alleged scam with the results being made public last Thursday.  Athletic Director Jack Swarbrick held a press conference which confirmed that their star football players was bamboozled.  Not only was this person not who she said she was, she was not dead either.  Of course, several media outlets started their own investigations and things are just not adding up.  It was found that Te'o did in fact mention that he actually met this girl for the first time in 2009.  His father stated in an interview that Manti actually spent time with this woman when The Irish played at Stanford this year.  The South Bend Tribune also reported that the two got together in Hawaii where Te'o grew up.  Now as the story unfolds, people are asking why Manti Te'o may not have been forthcoming with details about this relationship as the story unfolded?

Let me tell you what my questions are.  Why the hell is this even a story?  Why have all these national media companies jumped on this story like it was the end of the world.  Hell, American hostages were taken in Algeria this week and this story is not getting as much press as the Manti debacle.  I don't get it?  This story should be a non issue to everyone except Te'o, the University of Notre Dame and any authorities that may get involved if a crime was actually committed.  If this were any other college or any other player, this would be a non issue.  It would be a chuckle around the water cooler.  Right now people are dropping like flies from the flu, we are teetering on the fiscal cliff and assault weapon murders are through the roof.  Why on earth would anyone focus so intensely on a story about a college student athlete who may have been duped by a cat fishing bimbo?  It drives me insane!

Gun Control - It's Time For The NRA To Shut Up

I am a gun owner, 2 rifles and a shotgun, who has been thinking long and hard on this gun control issue.  I always thought that the citizens of the United States should be able to purchase and arm themselves with any weapons that they choose.  However, after the massacre at the Sandy Hook Elementary School, I started thinking about my views and started to question and debate people on gun control.  I have listened and watched a multitude of shows and opinions on this topic and have come to realize that we need to have more thorough background checks on buyers, a national or state data base of people who own guns, psychological testing before you buy a gun and a ban on ALL assault weapons.  I could go as far as to say lets also ban all handguns as well.  I have tossed this around in my head for weeks and cannot come up with one solid reason for anyone to have these weapons.  You can't hunt with them, you can't shoot them within city limits and if locked up correctly they cannot be used for protection, contrary to the delusional beliefs of many.

As I write this Gripe, Vice President and our main man Joe Biden is meeting with groups in Washington to discuss gun control laws.  One of these groups, unfortunately is the NRA (National Rifle Association).  These one sided, egotistical maniacs came out after the Sandy Hook massacre to say that the only way to stop these types of mass murders from happening is to arm the teachers as well as everyone else in the country who can tote a gun.  They also toss a cannon load of money into the pockets of our Congressmen in Washington.  They may be the most powerful lobby group in DC.  These pin heads would like to see us go back to the days of the wild west when everyone wore a pistol and there were duels in the streets.  Back then people were killed daily for just looking at someone sideways.  The NRA hierarchy are simply crazy, nuts, out of their freakin minds!  One of their justifications to allowing people to arm themselves with assault weapons is of course the 2nd amendment of the constitution.  It states, "A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed".  Of course this does not pertain today.  This amendment was included in the constitution to allow Americans to protect themselves against tyrannical countries such as England.  It was also put in place to allow citizens to form militia's so they could fight alongside soldiers.  The Continental Army was small and not funded very well.  They could not provide weapons for the militias.

Apache Helicopter
The NRA and the other "right to bear arms" groups will also claim that our citizens need to be armed to repel our government if it becomes tyrannical.  You may be shaking your head yes on this one, however picture this in your head.  A group of citizens armed with assault rifles against an Apache helicopter like the one pictures to the left.  Government 1 - Citizens 0.  Not to mention the M-1 Abrams tank and the M-2 .50 caliber machine gun.  The bottom line here is none of the justifications that these brainless chimps throw out can sway me to think that it is OK for people to have assault rifles.  These weapons with high capacity magazines of 100 shells are only needed for one thing, mass murder.  Get them out of society, its a no brainer.  Our officials need to tell the NRA to shove a gun barrel where the sun don't shine and pull the trigger.  Its time for our greedy Congressmen to refuse the NRA's money and vote with some common sense.  For some reason I doubt that will happen.  The slimy tentacles of the NRA stretch wide and far throughout our government.  I just hope and pray that our leaders have big enough orbs to send the NRA packing.

Luzerne Ticket Caper - Update

I got this in from Tim "PA Juggalo" as an update to his parking ticket.  You are going to love this!

I just got back from paying my fine (9am-4pm Mon-Friday) is what the sign says. I get there at like 930ish and ring the bell and a cop asks how they can help me. I tell them I have to pay my fine (wanted to say bullshit fine but I kept my tongue) She tells me I can't yet because the clerk isn't here yet because her child missed the bus and had to bring them to school and is late. Ok why can't you pay it? I ask her. She's a cop so she's not allowed to handle the money transactions. It was a 15$ fine and I paid with a 20. I think she just couldn't do the math. So I noticed as I was pulling up a few cars all parked with the same violation I got ticketed for right on the street outside the building. (I think 2 in total) After she finally lets me in the building (begrudgingly of course) I point this out to her and I notice the look in her eyes of more money! So she opens the door and looks and you could feel her demeanor change. Now where the Police building is there are only 4 parking lot parking spots and that is shared with the borough building as well so a bunch of them have to park on the streets as well. She comes back in a few seconds later and tells me shes not allowed to write tickets because she has to be monitoring the radio but she wishes she could. Well why did you just go outside for a moment then? So I say to her "Well if it's not against the law I would gladly put the tickets on the cars for you if you write them so we can fine these no good law breakers for breaking the law." She goes "Well I guess you could but I'm actually not allowed to write tickets. I just do clerical work for the borough." WHAT? You can't take my money and you can't write tickets? Why do we pay you with our tax dollars if you do nothing? Who wants to make a bet that she was just full of shit and one of those cars was HER car and she didn't want to fine herself. She couldn't write a ticket and then not record it in the books. That would look suspicious. 5 minutes later the clerk comes in and I pay my fine (after waiting maybe another 5 minutes for them to find change to give me after telling me at first they might not have change this early in the morning and would I like to wait or they could just reduce my "next fine" by 5 dollars). I actually laugh about this because I obviously flustered them. I'm hoping everyone else they fined last night does the same thing!

This stinks of local yocal police work at its finest.  God forbid if the officer collected the fine and OHHHH BOY she better not ticket the cars of her friends and fellow workers.  I can't believe that Luzerne would employ a police officer that only does clerical work!  I would guess that she is paid well and has the Cadillac of health care.  This entire ticket caper makes me sick!

Going The Wrong Way

One of our faithful Gripers shot me this note on Facebook late last night and it really sent me into a tirade.  Even though you were in violation of a parking law, it really burns my buttocks that they randomly ticket for this around the holidays.  Here is the note from Tim "PA Juggalo".

I just got a ticket from the luzerne cops for parking facing the wrong side of the street. I realize this is technically against the law but I've done it millions of times before as has everyone before. Hell even the cops do it on my street all the time. They just want to start off the new year ahead of the curve with these bullshit fines for no reason. Fuck them. 

Tim, you hit the mail on the head.  The cops in many of our towns will hit people especially around the holidays with parking violations.  Back a year ago I Griped this because a good friends sister got a ticket in Kingston for the same violation.  I think it is safe to say that all year long you can see people parked facing the wrong way and no tickets are given.  Near the end of the year, the towns send out an edict for the cops to write a ton of tickets so they can make budget.  Believe me when I tell you that I know this to be a fact first hand.  It's easy pickings at this time of the year because people are in from out of town to visit for the holidays.  What ticks me off the most is that the cops do it on your street but no one tickets them.  I think we should make an R2G ticket to give to the cops.  If you see them parked the wrong way, slip one under their wiper blade.  If you see one blow through a stop sign, pull them over.  If you see one talking on a cell phone while driving write them up.  I think the only thing we ask is that our law enforcement officials be consistent and follow the laws like everybody else.

Top 10 Crazy Stories of 2012

The year of 2012 brought us many news stories such as the killing of Osama Bin Laden, the re-election of Barack Obama, the Fiscal Cliff and Superstorm Sandy.  The Mayan Apocalypse came and went without the world ending in a storm of fire and brimstone.  However, here are several stories that you may have missed on the news over the past year.  Here are the R2G's Top 10 Crazy Stories of 2012.

Pauline Potter
 No. 10: World's Heaviest Woman's Sex Diet:  Pauline Potter (no relation to Harry Potter) tipped the scales as the world's heaviest woman in 2011 at an eye-popping 643 pounds. In July, she told reporters that she had lost 98 pounds through marathon sex sessions with her ex-husband.  This diet is a lot more sensible than the one practiced by Donna Simpson, one of Pauline's rival fat ladies. She wrote in the Huffington Post in 2011 that she had smoked crack in a desperate attempt to drop some tonnage.  Guys, here is proof positive that the line of the more sex we have the thinner she will get is for real!

No. 9: Testicle-Eating Fish Spotted in Illinois:  Nothing got guys crossing their legs, cupping their crotches and wincing like this story. The pacu, a toothy fish that can weigh up to 55 pounds was spotted in Lake Lou Yaeger in Illinois in June. Pacus are native to the Amazon Basin. They generally eat nuts, snails and aquatic vegetation. But when they come into human contact, they've been known to bite off the testicles of fishermen and swimmers.  It is true that these fish like to feast on nuts.
Monica and Jessica

No. 8: Mother-Daughter Porn Duo:  As, Jessica and her daughter, Monica, see it, they have a family business. They're porn stars who act together as an adult film industry duo known as "The Sexxtons." Of course, they don't give out their last names. Being unconvinced they were really family (we don't automatically believe everything a naked actress tells us), they provided documentation and a decade of family photos. This is, experts tell us, a porn industry first. Jessica and Monica insist what they do is not incest.  They'll make love on camera with the same man but just won't touch each other while they're doing it. After all, they have standards.  Boy am I glad they have some standards?

No. 7: Octomom vs Tanning Mom:  With Casey Anthony in hiding most of the year, it was hard for the R2G to pick our "Mother of the Year."  In one corner, we have Nadya "The Octomom" Suleman, who turned porn star after being banned from celebrity boxing.  In the other corner, we have newcomer Patricia "Tanning Mom" Krentcil. This New Jersey mom was accused of second-degree child endangerment when her 5-year-old daughter showed up at school with a sunburn thought to be caused by Krentcil taking her to a tanning salon. We thought these two should just fight it out for honors.  Who the hell gets banned from celebrity boxing?

No. 6: Squid Inseminates Woman's Tongue:  A woman in Seoul, Korea was eating semi-boiled squid in June when the cephalopod injected its sperm bag into her tongue.  The unidentified woman reportedly experienced a "pricking and foreign-body sensation" while she chewed and spat the squid out.  Doctors found that the squid had left "twelve small, white spindle-shaped, bug-like organisms" in the mucous membranes of her tongue and cheek   These squid kids were removed from the woman's tongue and all is fine.  It goes to show you that you should boil your squid completely before you eat it.  Boy could I take off with this story!
No. 5: Anal Tattoos:  A lot of us have tattoos that aren't in plain sight, and so does this woman, who was said to be on the cutting edge of the next big trend, anal tattoos.  You read that right, anal tattoos!  WHAT!  WHAT!  ARE YOU FREAKIN' KIDDING ME!  That was the buzz in August at the 17th annual South Florida Tattoo Expo. The woman shown here said the procedure felt "really, really good."  I have several questions here with the first being what is her phone number?

No. 4: Bubble Skin Man:  When Chandra Wisnu married his wife Nanik more than three decades ago, he was young, good looking, well-educated and born into into a well-to-do family. After the wedding, he wasn't so lucky. A rare abnormality in his nervous system transformed him.  Wisnu has spent the last 25 years trying to find a cure for the bizarre condition that caused bubble-like tumors to erupt on his body.  Now, at last,he may have found the cause, thanks to Maryland-based dermatologist Anthony Gaspari, and while no cure exists, he may be able to improve his quality of life.  The diagnosis: an extreme case of Neurofibromatosis type I (NF-1), a tumor disorder that is caused by a gene malfunction and causes non-cancerous lumps. The disease is genetic and affects up to one in 2500 people. Joseph "John" Merrick, better known as the "Elephant Man," was said to have suffered from this condition.
No. 3: Jonah vs. TSA:  After appearing in a 1999 HBO documentary, Jonah Falcon has had the distinction of having the longest penis ever measured on camera. The distinction hasn't brought him wealth or even a steady income. But it has made him an Internet sensation. And when TSA agents at San Francisco International Airport asked about that protuberance in his pants, comedy ensued.  I can hear airport security now.  "Sir, is that a gun in your pants or are you just happy to see me."  I would guess that Jonah has no idea what the internet is or he would be a millionaire by now.

 No. 2: Virgin Auction:  What's the price of innocence? In the case of Catarina Migliorini, it was exactly $780,000. That's how much this 20-year-old Brazilian woman received in an Internet auction for her virginity. She initially claimed she was donating proceeds to the poor in her country, and didn't consider the stunt an act of prostitution. A Brazilian prosecutor eventually said he was considering the possibility of criminal charges for people involved in this enterprise.

And finally, the number 1 crazy story of 2012.  Drum roll please..... 

No. 1: Cook Serves Own Genitals:  Japanese chef Mao Sugiyama, a self-described "asexual" from Tokyo, cooked and served his own genitalia to five diners at a swanky $250-a-plate banquet in May. Sugiyama's penis shaft, testes and scrotum were garnished with button mushrooms and Italian parsley.  What the hell, did he just chop them off in the kitchen, toss them in a pan and fry them up?  Now this guy should be an Iron Chef!

There you have it, the R2G's Top 10 Crazy Stories for 2012.
