Thanks Obama – Killed Girlfriend’s Family

Thanks Obama!

I really love the Thanks Obama meme. When you listen to Fox news, any Republican or anyone old, you hear the most fucked up things about President Obama. Besides the fact that these sources always disrespect the president, they always seem to think that he is responsible for absolutely everything.  Maybe that’s because the Republican obstructionist Congress, can’t get anything done. Somebody must be doing it. Why not blame it on President Obama?

The below picture showed up on Facebook. The headline reads: Man drives 15 hours to shoot girlfriend’s family. Then in the comment section someone writes: If Obama hadn’t lowered the gas prices, he would not have been able to afford to make the trip. So in reality, Obama killed those people.

Is it sarcasm?

A few Facebook users commented:

Paul Coleman Temple wrote: And if this guys parents hadn’t done the ‘horizontal mambo’, we wouldn’t be having this conversation. SMH

Jan Burtyk wrote: Murder is never anything to joke about. It is ironic tough that he is giving Obama credit for lower gas prices, something conservatives never would have done before. I think that might be why 50 people liked the comment, not that he blames Obama for the murder. I think the shooter would have traveled that far no matter how much the gas cost, he was obviously that angry. This is very sad, and the young man must be very sick. Philip must be sick also, to say such a thing.

Yes, murder is nothing to joke about. Nevertheless, I found these two images and I am not sure what concept is worse. You decide.

Due to cheap gas prices I could...

Due to cheap gas prices, I could afford to drive 1,049 miles to kill my girlfriend’s family.

Due to cheap gas prices, man could afford to  drive 1,049 miles to kill his girlfriend’s family.

The original article comes from Florida Today:

Here is an excerpt:

A man spent Christmas Eve on a 15-hour drive to Florida, apparently bent on getting revenge on his former girlfriend’s stepmother, authorities said.

By early Christmas morning, Preston Pollard, 23, of Venus and the ex-girlfriend’s father, Richard Hutson, 36, of Marion Oaks, Fla., were dead. Hutson’s wife, Mary Lou Hutson, 55, was shot and taken to an area hospital in critical condition.

After Pollard shot the Hutsons, he drove off, authorities said. A few hours and about 350 miles later, Pollard shot himself as officers spotted his car heading west on Interstate 10 in Okaloosa County, Fla.

Decorate God’s House

I would give money to the poor and TO the less fortunate if I did not have to decorate  God’s House.

“I would give money to the poor and to the less fortunate if I did not have to decorate God’s House.”

There are poor and hungry people scattered all over the globe and the Catholic church has money to build gold-filled cathedrals. There is something seriously wrong with a Jesus-based religion that has so much wealth. If Christians believe the Bible is the unquestionable word of God, how come the believers do not live in the manner Jesus lived?  Is it because Christians think that they can be evil and then pray all their sins away.

I will pray for the poor from my golden throne.

Safeway Pulls Caramel Apples From Shelves

Read CDC Warning Here: Listeriosis

Multi-state Outbreak of Listeriosis Linked to
Commercially Produced, Prepackaged Caramel Apples

Caramel Apples Tainted with ListeriaU.S. consumers are being advised to avoid eating caramel apples that have been commercially produced. This recommendation follows an outbreak of listeriosis in several states across the U.S. that has been linked to commercial caramel apples. Now, Safeway has withdrawn from its shelves caramel apples in response to the latest warning issued by the Center for Disease Control (CDC), along with a few threats of lawsuits looming around the corner.

Listeriosis is a bacterial infection most commonly caused by Listeria monocytogenes. Listeriosis primarily causes infections of the central nervous system (meningitis, meningoencephalitis, brain abscess, cerebritis) and bacteremia in those with compromised immune system, pregnant women, and those at the extremes of age (newborns and the elderly). Healthy persons who have ingested a large quantity of the organism.

Listeria is ubiquitous in the environment and is primarily transmitted via the oral route after ingestion of contaminated food products, after which the organism penetrates the intestinal tract to cause systemic infections. The diagnosis of listeriosis requires the isolation of the organism from the blood and/or the cerebrospinal fluid. Treatment includes prolonged administration of antibiotics, primarily ampicillin and gentamicin, to which the organism is usually susceptible.

As of December 22, 2014, a total of 29 people infected with the outbreak strains of Listeria monocytogenes have been reported from 10 states: Arizona (4), California (1), Minnesota (4), Missouri (5), New Mexico (5), North Carolina (1), Texas (4), Utah (1), Washington (1), and Wisconsin (3). Illness onset dates range from October 17, 2014, to November 27, 2014. Nine illnesses have been associated with a pregnancy (occurred in a pregnant woman or her newborn infant). No miscarriages or fetal losses have been reported. Among people whose illnesses were not associated with a pregnancy, ages ranged from 7 to 92 years, with a median age of 66 years, and 41% were female. Three invasive illnesses (meningitis) occurred among otherwise healthy children aged 5–15 years. All 29 ill people have been hospitalized and, five deaths have been reported. Listeriosis contributed to three of these deaths and it is unclear whether it contributed to a fourth. The fifth death was unrelated to listeriosis.
