You’ve already heard the story as told by Florida Democrat Frederica Wilson. She claimed she eaves-dropped on a private phone conversation between the President of the United States and the widow of a fallen warrior. Wilson alleges that the POTUS took time out of his busy schedule to call the widow in order to give her a load of sarcastic crap about how her husband deserved it for volunteering to serve in the military in the first place. Pheeeew

Not even Maxine Waters (D California) could have coughed up and spat out a bigger loogie and danced on it, but Ms. Wilson did.

The Florida Democrat who criticized President Donald Trump this week for being “insensitive” toward the widow of a U.S. soldier slain in Africa might be facing similar criticism herself.

It turns out that U.S. Rep. Frederica Wilson has frequently voted against measures intended to help veterans and their families, according to VoteSmart.org, a vote-tracking site whose founding board members included former presidents Jimmy Carter and Gerald Ford.

The measures that Wilson opposed included a bill that could have ensured that families of four soldiers slain in Afghanistan in 2013 received death and burial benefits. [Source, via.]

Congrats, Ms. Wilson. You’ve just earned a solid nomination for The 2017 Idiot Wind Award.

Mumbling man’s mouthful leads to charges

AMBRIDGE — Police figured the mumbling man with the bulging lower lip had a story to share with them. When he was later struck with a Taser and spit 23 individually wrapped pieces of crack cocaine onto the ground, the details emerged.

Frank Lee Turner, 56, of Ambridge was a passenger in a vehicle during a traffic stop at 2:38 p.m. Feb. 5 on 11th Street in Ambridge. Three men were riding in a truck equipped with shoulder belts for two.

Turner left the vehicle as police talked to the driver, according to the Ambridge police report.

Asked to return to the vehicle, Turner mumbled a response and began to struggle with police. In the struggle, a single piece of crack cocaine popped from his mouth and police could see something white under his tongue, according to the report.

After Turner struck an officer in the head, knocking his sunglasses and hat to the ground, police used a Taser on Turner and he spit two pieces of crack cocaine on the ground.

Turner, attempted to swallow the remaining pieces, so police again used the Taser and he spit out 19 more pieces of cocaine.

Turner, of 644 Duss Ave., First Floor, was charged with aggravated assault, resisting arrest and drug possession with intent to deliver, according to court documents.

Everywhere is freaks and hairies, dykes and fairies. Tell me where is sanity? Tax the rich, feed the poor, ’til there aren’t no rich no more. I’d love to change the world, but I don’t know what to do.  – Alvin Lee

Yep, they’re changing the world all right, one failed beat at a time. Truth is, the guy’s got no rhythm – he’s a beat off – and if that were a real Benjamin in his pocket he’d be chasing after the dork who lifted it. Capitalism!
