The Road to Nowhere
Author: BobR    Date: 2015-07-29 10:51:02

On Sunday June 21st of this year, a truck carrying a woman and 3 other occupants to visit her father for Father's Day was crossing a bridge on a local highway in Hunt County, TX. For no apparent reason, the bridge collapsed beneath her truck. The occupants were able to escape the partially submerged truck with help from bystanders.

Nearly one month later in western California, on Sunday July 19th, a truck was driving on I-10 headed east. As the truck was crossing a river, the bridge collapsed beneath it, leaving the truck stranded precariously. The injured driver was rescued.

Way back less than a year ago, everyone thought this little old man was a silly fool and did not pay attention. It was treated as a tabloid story.
The Emmy-winning Cosby, NBC’s most bankable star at the time, used Scotti to deliver monthly payouts to eight different women in 1989-90 — including Shawn Thompson, whose daughter Autumn Jackson claimed the actor was her dad.

Frank Scotti says he did "a lot of crazy things" for Bill Cosby, including being a coverup for the actor.

Cosby, while denying paternity, paid out more than $100,000 to Thompson over the years after their 1974 affair began. Scotti told The News that he believes Cosby was sleeping with all the women who received money.

They ignored that one of his alleged victims was 15 years old…. her name is Renita Chaney Hill; this story was published back in November of last year.

It was treated with a gasp and people moved on to the next thing. People wanted to ignore this and make this go away.

Ignorance is no more.

Blast from the Past
Author: velveeta jones    Date: 07/26/2015 13:51:06

Whew! Oh, hello 4Fers! I'm so happy to find you! The TPT was on the fritz due to a recent worker shortage and I was worried I'd land somewhere in the dark web or worse. Let me explain:

Howdy everyone! It's Velveeta from the future -- the year is 2024 and Donald Trump is still President and CEO.

Not thinking too hard today.

In a little while, we're heading out to a nearby auto emporium and doing the deed.

Fluffy Friday
Author: wickedpam    Date: 07/24/2015 12:36:52

Right now this is gonna be more like Cranky Friday. Got woken up at 3:37am to be told the power was out. Turned out it was an outage in the neighborhood. Across the street their power came back at 3:53, ours did not come back until 5:45. Didn't really get back to sleep cause I was afraid of oversleeping. So this morning I'm a little tired and more then a little grumpy.

In honor of that, check out Movie Bob's review of Pixels. Here's a hint, the words "beat it to death with a wiffle ball bat" were used and it probably isn't work safe.

Not. One. Reason.
Author: Raine    Date: 07/23/2015 13:10:30

She should not have been taken to jail.

There is not one reason why Sandra Bland should have even been taken out of her car and taken to jail.

My heart breaks for her friends and family. My heart breaks for every person that struggles just to stay alive one day to the next.

My heart breaks for a law enforcement system that is seemingly out of control for so many people that live in this country.

That is all I can say. This woman should not be dead.

Republican Blowback
Author: BobR    Date: 2015-07-22 10:54:18

If there's one concept Republicans do not ever seem to understand, it's "blowback". Most of our bumbling in the Middle East is the typical example, but it happens with seeming regularity in their political decisions, actions, and propaganda. The current political circus is a prime example.

Back in 2004, John Kerry was running against George W. Bush for president. We were going through a rather nauseating display of jingoism, nationalism, and chest-thumping patriotism. Everyone was bending over backwards to proclaim "WE SUPPORT THE TROOPS". It was a reaction to the hostile reception VietNam vets got upon returning from war, as well as an "us against them" posturing when it came to anyone in the Middle East. All vets were sacred.

Except one.

So, I've got a rare week - being away last week, most of the stories I had saved have gone stale. But the "easy" part about writing this column is that it's easy to find fresh material. I will resist the temptation to waste any time on the bloviating blowhard with the hair, except to say this: "Mr. Trump bears a striking resemblance to that circular muscle that is commonly found at the end of a mammalian digestive tract."
