(VIDEO) 9/15/11: CALIFORNIA WOMAN WINS $54 MILLION IN LOTTERY; OR SO SHE THOUGHT

VIDEO FOOTAGE INTERVIEW

A California woman was thrilled to read her local newspaper and see her winning lottery numbers posted.  She excitedly went to sleep dreaming about all the things she could do with her millions. Her son was worried she would have a heart attack as she screamed in joy when telling him of her unbelievable news.

Sadly enough and to her surprise the newspaper had mis-printed the numbers and corrected them in the paper the next day.   Lottery officials and the editor apologized, but should that make her feel better?   Very doubtful.

After recently losing her husband, she believed her $54 million dollar winning ticket was a gift from him.  It was devastating news and now she can only dream about the roof in need of repair at her humble home.  What a downer; to think you were a millionaire and find you’re still broke is painful.   It’s just good she did not go on a shopping spree in advance of the check!

Reports are surfacing that an airplane just crashed near the grandstand at the National Championship Air Races near Reno, Nevada.  Multiple injuries have been reported along with reports of possibly “massive casualties” and three deaths.  KRNV-TV aired videotape showing at least four people being carried on stretchers to ambulances, but new updates suggest 50 people were injured. 
 
Some witnesses say they saw “pieces and parts going everywhere.” The plane was said to be a Galloping Ghost” P-51 aircraft. The National Championship Air Races is widely attended, military and civilian planes race each year during the event. Very sad to hear.

(VIDEO) 2011: DENVER MEN DRINK & PARTY WITH DEAD FRIEND IN CAR; ARRESTED FOR CORPSE ABUSE

With friends like this, who needs enemies.  It was reported today that two Denver men face corpse abuse and identity theft charges for allegedly bar hopping with their dead friend in the car.

Robert Jeffrey Young, 43, and Mark Rubinson, 25, allegedly went to visit their friend Jeffrey Jarrett.  When they realized he had died in his home, they allegedly still loaded his corpse into their car and then went to Teddy T’s bar and grill and Sam’s No. 3.  They continued on a party excursion, leaving friend Jarrett in Rubinson’s Lincoln Navigator.

The worst part about the story is that they not only allegedly drove around with their dead friend for hours, they used his bank card to pay for their drinks and night on the town.  After getting wasted on their friends tab, they returned his body to his home and went out for a meal.  To add insult to injury they then went and withdrew $400 more from his ATM card and headed to a strip club.

Finally after a wild night out, they informed police of his death and were quickly arrested.  They are now wishing they would have skipped the bar and wild night out because they are in hot water.  It has been said, “be careful who you befriend” and this is a classic story of why you should.

This insane event is being compared to the 1989 movie “Weekend at Bernies” where two men lug around their employer’s body, making people think he is alive.  But no-one is laughing this time either.

Have people lost their minds?

(VIDEO) PRESIDENT OBAMA IN HOT WATER OVER SOLYNDRA $537 MILLION DOLLAR SCANDAL

It seems as though President Obama can’t stay out of trouble these days.  He is blamed for the recession, loss of jobs, housing crisis, war and pretty much anything wrong with our country.  Now he is in hot water again over the Solyndra bankruptcy scandal.

Originally the White House bragged that the company was on the leading edge of its green jobs program, but new details emerged this week regarding its $527 million in federal loan guarantees. It was reported that additional tax payer money in the tune of $75 million was used to bail out the struggling company, even when White House officials knew they were in financial trouble.

Although huge tax payer money was poured into the company, Solyndra declared bankruptcy Aug. 31, 2011.  This essentially put 1,100 out of work and potentially will leave taxpayers on the hook for the $527 million in funds released by the White House.  Where did the money go?

We all know the “green programs” are dear to many politicians hearts, including the President, but that money could have been used to bail out the many homeowners now losing their homes.  When will politicians learn how to better manage tax payer dollars?  Why can’t we vote on where our hard-earned tax dollars go?
