Could these be the blue kachina and red kachina foretold? Maybe.

Quote:
A Cleveland municipal bus driver has been suspended after video surfaced this week showing him decking a mouthy female rider with a bolo punch.

The confrontation between the Greater Cleveland Regional Transit Authority (RTA) worker and the unidentified woman was apparently filmed by another rider. It is unclear from the above clip, however, what triggered the dispute.

[WARNING: The video is peppered with curse words and racial slurs.]

The driver of bus 2802 leaves his seat after the woman appears to strike him. "You going to jail now," the driver says twice before throwing an uppercut that knocks the woman to the ground.

The driver then throws the woman off the stopped bus, though she climbs back aboard and tussles with him. "She want to be a man, I'm gonna treat you like a man," the driver announces at one point.

RTA officials believe the fight occurred on September 18. The unidentified driver was suspended this week, with city officials describing his behavior as "absolutely unacceptable." In a press statement, the agency added, "RTA apologizes to our customers for this incident. A full investigation continues."

Since a good 90% of all items sold are manufactured in other countries I don't see this going anywhere.

OK, so what the hell does Mother Nature have against Halloween? Last year we had a freak snow and ice storm two days before Halloween, which knocked out power all over town (including my house) for four days, and the town cancelled trick or treating due to all the tree branches and power lines that were laying all over the roads. Now they're talking about another crazy storm this coming week, so it looks like my kids are going to get skunked again this year. Boooooo!!!

I just hope my fucking lights stay ON this time... (crosses fingers)...

Generally, I avoid watching all the murders and bullshit on the news because it's damn depressing, but a recent story caught my attention.

Two teenagers (about 15 & 16) killed this 12 year old girl for her bike last week in a town that's about 15 miles from me. What in the fuck?! America is so depressing and needlessly violent.

Very little, just a few phrases here and there.

I can say "Hello, my name is Shawn" from above. I also know the more formal greeting phrase (for elders). I can say "Thank you", I can say "hurry up". I can answer the phone (their is a separate phrase for the telephone). Just basic stuff like that. It's actually not as difficult as you'd think, I just don't have the patience to learn a new language, I'm too fucking old.

Ted Nugent should be the official poster child for the Republican Party...

http://ultimateclassicrock.com/ted-nugent-calls-obama-voters-soulless-fools/

“pimps, whores & welfare brats & their soulless supporters have a President to destroy America.”

Yay Ted, we love your gun-toting, flag-waving, racist, teenage-marrying, bigoted viewpoint. America needs someone intelligent enough to write "I make the pussy purr with a stroke of my hand" standing up for the Republican party!

laughing very hard
