Does this BOTHER U ?

Does this BOTHER U ?

I am slightly bothered by this where a retirement community in Pinellas Park, Florida asks for their neighbors to evict their 6 year old grand-daughter.

Okay I understand that their are community rules and regulations in these retirement communities but gee wiz!

The grandparent Jimmy and Judie Stottler live in this retirement community that doesn’t allow children. The home owners association wants the child removed,  evicted,  gone, ka-put!

Jimmy and Judie were in the process of selling their home however with the real estate market crash those plans where destroyed and put on hold.

So now they are forced to stay until something else comes up meanwhile the home owners association is badgering this couple and their granddaughter.

Who by the way was placed in a foster home due to the state finding out that her mother was abusing drugs.

Now just what gives? Does this BOTHER U?

CyberSuicide and Cyberbullying

I was just floored. As I get older I think nothing can just shock me down to my toes and make be turn colors but as I live longer, I find that this is just not true.  Is is the holiday time that brings about so much strife and depression in the lives of people.  Everyone is looking for someone to love, connect with and feel a part of anywhere, anytime, by any means necessary.

Well yesterday a college youth took his life he was bipolar and on medication.  Abraham Biggs wrote a suicide note stating how much he hated life and himself and wanted it all to end. While on streaming video @ Justin.tv he video taped himself engulfing a handful of his medication while gradually the last breathe of life escaped his body while he was taping himself.

The chatroom to his session was open while people thought it was a joke, some were egging him on, some were cracking jokes. The news has stated that it may have been different if someone was in the room with him and they most more than likely would have stopped him form committing suicide.

The video stopped streaming as the police was called by someone taking an active part. When the local police got there Bigss was dead.

There is so much to this that is just outrageous, wrong and bizarre it really just infuriates me. Since when did we as a country take someone talking about killing themselves as a joke? We have schools that have no tolerance rules for kids bring weapons, drawing weapons, or even talking about weapons where they can be suspended or expelled from school.

He was depressed beyond what we could imagine. We have no idea what it means to be bipolar and on bipolar medication. Unless you have the condition you just don’t understand.

Abraham Biggs, 19, died Wednesday from a toxic combination of opiates and benzodiazepine, a drug used to treat insomnia and depression, said Wendy Crane, an investigator with the Broward County medical examiner’s office. At least one of the drugs was prescribed to him and it’s unclear how he got the others, Crane said.

Granted those watching may have not know about his condiion but to instigate, joke, poke, cyber-harass this college student is just deplorable regardless.  Cyberbullying yet again assist in taking another life. From my previous blog post about Cyberbullying.

It just shows how this menace is still prevalent, increasing and being unchecked in our society. How many more lives must this phenomenon assist in claiming a life?

Here is a memorial page I found for the college youth

His myspace page has been I am sure taken down as condolensences have poured in.

His family is devasted. Pray for his family.

Laughing Gas! LOL!

With all the latest back and forth talk about a gas tax for us over taxed Americans. Our good friend Garfield has a thought about the whole tawdry deal.

Take it away Garfield.

A lot of folks can’t understand how we came to have an oil shortage here in our country.

~~~ Well, there’s a very simple answer.

~~~ Nobody bothered to check the oil.

~~~ We just didn’t know we were getting low.

The reason for that is purely
geographical.
