"Dipshit.

Or should I say, Asshole.

I've worked my share of 7-day weeks and 7 am to 9 pm days, and I've worked my share of 80-hour weeks, so yes, I get to joke about it."

Yes, I prefer 'Asshole'.

And I dare say we've all worked 7 day weeks and 16 hour days and 80 hour weeks. You sir, are not special because you too were stupid enough to put up with that sort of bullshit.

But when the rich fucking boss comes on like a cheap self help guru touting the benefits of an 80 hour work week, that's where I draw the line. No, it isn't funny. Your frequent and various anecdotes about your work environs and the idiots who inhabit same with you, now that's funny. But not Jack fucking Shit of the mishappen head Ma. This miserable fucker is not funny. He's a goddamned vampire existing only to suck the life blood out of all foolish enough to work for him.

Over my time on this board I've come to have a serious regard and respect for you Pyrrho and I wouldn't want to tarnish that by crossing you in any way. However, while I'm certainly a dipshit and perhaps an asshole too, I really don't need your overworked self to tell me that. I get it all by myself, thanks. One last point: These days I never work more than 40 hours a week (frequently less 'cause that's just how fucking good I am) unless one of my seven fucking teen radio stations is off the air. These fun filled episodes usually involves a phone call at UnGawdly O' Thirty in the morning from automated dialers at the transmitter site informing me that something is out of tolerance. I drag myself out of bed and deal with it. Sometimes this involves a lonely dreary drive up to the top of a mountain via logging roads to the transmitter site. Each one of them is populated by an assortment of antiques and museum pieces as any you'd care to see, but I keep The Shit running in spite of the fact that it all should've been retired about the same time as Edison made his first successful light bulb. And in spite of Teh Children who constitute the bulk of the staff at each of these illustrious licensed public servants.

And in this, I answer to one person, my immediate supervisor, who has been through the mill just like I have. We understand each other perfectly. Sure, lot's of others think I answer to them too, but they labor under a false assumption on their part that they are some how spay-shul and that when they fart, Skittles fly out their assholes. I always smile and nod. Each and every time they suggest that I might do something for them, I always refer them to the aforementioned supervisor, who will, in his own unique way and without raising his voice, gently remind them to go fuck themselves because, after all, they really do not know what they're talking about. I am still and always will be in awe of his ability in this regard. I have yet to master this, indeed, I'm too old now to even attempt it. If my supervisor should retire or otherwise vacate his position before I do, that'll be the day I turn in my resignation. Knowing him as I do, I expect he'll work until he drops, and I've only got another 6 years before I can ease myself into retirement. So, it's a race to see who gets there first.

Would I want to come back and do it all again? No. But, I wouldn't have missed this go 'round for all the tea in China either.

I thank you all for your attention.

Cheers,

I once, just once, worked a 36 hour workday. It was an emergency (not life and death, just ridiculous amounts of work needed on a weekend) situation, and I wasn't forced (there was some begging and "company spirit" shit) to do it, but it was one of those "somebody's gotta do it" situations, and I wasn't the only one who did it. And I got 2.5x pay ($50) an hour when that bought a lot more than it does now. A lot of strong coffee was drunk on that shift, and I slept 14 hours afterward. I would never do it again, but I was a lot younger then.

34 hours was my limit back when I was young and stupid. But, I was the only one who could do the work necessary.

What madness.

After that, I should have owned a percentage of that one. But stupid is as stupid does, and I gave it away at the going rate. What a fool I was.

These could be Fucking Assholes of the Decade. Nevertheless, this infamous case finally comes to a close:

This Cunt and This Fuck Face

They are both Cunts and Fuck Faces. They are, The Fucking Assholes of the Week!
California Parents Sentenced To Life In Prison After Years Of Torturing 12 Children

A California couple who beat, tortured and abused 12 of their 13 children for years were sentenced to life in prison during an emotional hearing that included testimony from some of the victims.

David and Louise Turpin pleaded guilty in February to 14 felony counts each, including counts of torture, false imprisonment, cruelty to dependent adults and child endangerment, after police discovered they had held their children captive, starving them and forcing them to live in horrific conditions.

["Snip!"--Ed.]

The sentencing came just over a year after the couple's then-17-year-old daughter escaped through a window of the family's Perris, Calif., home and called 911. It was the culmination of a two-year plan.

The girl directed police to the house where officials found the children — ages 2 to 29 at the time — living in appalling squalor. Some were "shackled to their beds with chains and padlocks in dark and foul-smelling surroundings," according to the Riverside Sheriff's Department.

They were so malnourished and emaciated that police mistook them for much younger children. In fact, they believed the 17-year-old was only 10. Police were also shocked to discover seven adults among the group, ranging in age from 18 to 29 — the eldest weighed 82 pounds when found. Officials also concluded several of the victims suffered cognitive impairment and neuropathy as result of the extreme and prolonged physical abuse.

Further investigations revealed the siblings were restrained by ropes and later chains as a form of punishment. They were often beaten, strangled or tied up for "weeks or even months at a time." They were only allowed to shower once a year, and their parents often taunted them by keeping food and toys just out of reach.

The youngest child, who was 2 when the Turpins were arrested, was apparently spared the abuse, the Riverside County district attorney determined.

Both parents offered tearful apologies to their children in court, saying they acted out of love. Really.

"I'm sorry for everything I've done to hurt my children," Louise Turpin said, weeping. "I love my children so much. I'm blessed to be the mother of each one of them. I only want the best for them; their happiness is very important to me. They are very smart, amazing individuals. I hope they get all the education they need."

Their father, David, spoke briefly before breaking down. "I am so proud of each and every one of my children. I miss all of my children and I will be praying for them. I long for the opportunity to have contact with them again," he said.

His lawyer finished reading the statement saying, "My home schooling and discipline had good intentions. ... I'm sorry if I've done anything to cause them harm." Really.

Judge Bernard Schwartz had harsh words for the Turpins and the irreparable years of maltreatment they inflicted on their offspring.

"Their lives have been permanently altered in their ability to learn, grow and thrive. You have delayed their mental, physical and emotional development," Schwartz said.

"To the extent that they do thrive, and it appears from today that perhaps a couple are, it will be not because of you both, but in spite of you both," he rebuked the pair.

The couple will be eligible for parole after 25 years. Really.

Of course you didn't. We all read the same shit. And no where does it appear that you said such a thing.

But you did rather imply it with your tirade about all those long hours worked by you. And I merely pointed out that in the stupidity of our youth, we all do the same thing because we've been taught that hard work will pay dividends when, in fact, it does not.

Thank you Doc.

Irrelevant but as I might have expected from such as yourself, whom I also hold in high regard on this forum. But you are ever the optimist, and hold yourself in a much higher regard than anyone else here IMHO.

If I'm in error about this, then please and by all means, let us hear from all those persons excepting yourself sir, who disagree with my Humble Yet Magnificent(tm) statement.

Give you an example of what I meant. Years ago I was at a gathering where two very overweight people were teasing each other about their weight. Another person--not me--who was not overweight also started teasing them. They asked him to stop, on the basis that they, being overweight, could joke about it, but him, not being overweight, could not. The difference? Their jokes were irony. His were abuse.

For whatever reason, you, sir, are being abusive, despite our shared experience, and I don't appreciate it.

And that's the last I intend to post about this. A pissing contest is not worth the time or effort.

A former student of The College of Saint Rose in Albany, New York, has pled guilty to charges that he destroyed tens of thousands of dollars worth of campus computers using a USB device designed to instantly overwhelm and fry their circuitry. The plea was announced Tuesday by the Department of Justice, FBI, and Albany Police Department.

Vishwanath Akuthota, the former student, now faces up to 10 years in prison (with up to three years of supervision after release) and a fine totaling up to $250,000. He was arrested and taken into custody in North Carolina on February 22nd, just over a week after he went on a spree of inserting the “USB Killer” device into 66 of Saint Rose’s computers around various locations on campus. Such devices can be easily and freely purchased online and can overload the surge protection in many PCs.

Akuthota, 27, apparently made video recordings of himself inserting the malicious USB device into the computers and said “I’m going to kill this guy” as the PCs were overloaded and permanently ruined. So it’s fair to say the FBI and APD had all the evidence they needed.
What, does he get no credit for assisting the police with their investigation?
Akuthota is a citizen of India who is in the US on a visa, having earned a master’s degree in business from Saint Rose in 2017.
Ah, so now we see the treachery of these Asian types who infiltrate :freedom: :freedom: :freedom: AMURICA!!! :freedom: :freedom: :freedom: and bite the hand that feeds them! Next they will be poisoning the tikka masala in our Indian restaurants! WHY DO THEY HATE :freedom: :freedom: :freedom: AMURICA??? :freedom: :freedom: :freedom:

Anyone notice this story?

An African girl was forced to work like a ‘slave’ for 16 years. Neighbors helped her escape.
For 16 years, Mohamed Toure and Denise Cros-Toure — both descendants of politically powerful families in Guinea — lived and worked in the wealthy Dallas suburb of Southlake.

The couple’s background placed them among an elite class: Toure was the son of Guinea’s first president and Cros-Toure’s father was secretary of state. In Texas, the couple promoted African businesses, organized culture festivals and were written about in newspapers for their philanthropy. Their children played sports, graduated from high school and went to college.

During that time, a girl named Djena Diallo lived alongside them. Like them, she was Guinean. She traveled to weddings, graduations and the Toure children’s sporting events. To the outside world, she appeared to be a member of the family.

But at home, according to federal prosecutors, the family dynamics were far different.

Diallo was brought to the United States at age 5, according to authorities. She said she knew no one and spoke no English. The Toures, she said, forced her to cook, clean and nanny their children without paying her. She did not attend school. Diallo told authorities that she was beaten, called “dog” and “worthless,” and banished to a nearby park as punishment, where she slept on a bench.

After 16 years under their control — in 2016 — Diallo finally fled, and she eventually reported her experience to police. Toure and Cros-Toure were arrested, indicted and convicted on federal charges of forced labor, conspiracy to commit alien harboring and alien harboring.

Now they are going to prison.

On Monday, U.S. District Judge Reed O’Connor sentenced Toure and Cros-Toure, both 58, to seven years in prison and ordered them to pay $288,620.24 in restitution. They will be deported to Guinea after they are released from prison.

“Forced labor trafficking cases are notoriously difficult to prosecute — in part because victims are often afraid to speak out,” U.S. Attorney Erin Nealy Cox said in a Justice Department statement. “It took tremendous courage for this young woman to share her story at trial. She was brought to this country at a young age, pressured to stay quiet, and forced to work for this family without pay for 16 years.”
The couple had their defenders.
When the case went to trial in January, attorneys for the couple painted them as benevolent and charitable. They argued that Diallo’s father sent the girl to the Toures so she might have “a better life in the United States,” the Dallas Morning News reported. The defense said Diallo had concocted a false narrative around her upbringing to “destroy the family that took her in.”

The girl’s household chores, they said, were no different from those expected of the Toure children.

“This is one of the hardest things we’ve been through,” Cros-Toure told the federal judge Monday before she was sentenced, according to the Fort Worth Star-Telegram. “We opened our home to everyone, and our hearts.”

Toure said his wife loved Diallo like a daughter. “We thought the truth would come out,” Toure said.

The couple’s supporters at the sentencing hearing echoed the sentiment, the Star-Telegram reported. The Toure children testified on behalf of their parents, as did neighbors and friends. They described the family as loving and generous.

The couple’s attorneys argued that Diallo lived in freedom, had social media accounts, attended family vacations and could leave the house when she wanted.
At this point I was starting to wonder, Wait, is this just a case of she-said/they-said? Just one girl's word against the whole family and even some neighbors and friends? But no, there's a big glaring hole in that version of events: the girl never attended school. The couple's sons did. If they were just raising her as one of their own, why wasn't the child allowed to go to school?
But prosecutors and Diallo offered a drastically different version of events.

They said the girl was sent to the United States alone as a child, against her mother’s wishes, to be the Toures’ servant. Her mother tried to hide her and prevent her from being taken, prosecutors said, because she “didn’t want her [daughter] to be someone’s slave.”

Diallo testified that the couple physically, emotionally and verbally abused her. They hit her on multiple occasions, she said, including with a belt and an electrical cord, and called her “slave.” They shaved her head and washed her outside with a hose.

Once, as punishment, Cros-Toure allegedly expelled Diallo from the house. She slept in a park and kept warm using a public-restroom hand dryer, officials said. “They isolated her from her family and society and prevented her from receiving any education, while their own children attended school and college,” the Justice Department statement said.

After a couple of particularly bad years, Diallo testified, she planned her escape with the help of friends and neighbors, according to the Dallas Morning News. In August 2016, she managed to flee the home and eventually relocated to the house of a former neighbor in a suburb of Houston.

“I hope that today’s sentence brings some measure of justice and healing to the victim, who suffered untold trauma as a result of the defendants’ heinous crimes,” Assistant Attorney General Eric Dreiband said in the Justice Department statement. “The defendants stole her childhood and her labor for years, enriching themselves while leaving her with pain and an uncertain future. I am very grateful to all who supported, and continue to support, the victim as she attempts to rebuild her life.”

This Fucking Asshole and the Kansas Shitty Queefs who love people like him:
Chiefs’ Hill suspended after audio discussing child abuse
DAVE SKRETTA

The Kansas City Chiefs effectively suspended Tyreek Hill from all team-related activities Thursday night while they investigate an audio recording that aired on a local TV station in which the star wide receiver’s fiancee accused him of abusing their 3-year-old son.

The recording surfaced one day after prosecutors said they believed abuse had occurred in Hill’s home last month but that they could not press charges because it was unclear who committed the crime.

Chiefs general manager Brett Veach read a statement after the conclusion of the first round of the NFL draft that said the team became aware of the recording between Hill and his fiancee, Crystal Espinal, in “real-time” — just like the general public.

Afterward, Veach called Hill’s agent, Drew Rosenhaus, and informed him that Hill would no longer be allowed to work out with the team. The Chiefs are in the midst of voluntary offseason workouts.

["Snip!"--Ed.]

Police were called to Hill’s home twice last month and investigators determined their child had been injured. On Wednesday, Johnson County District Attorney Steve Howe said charges would not be filed but that he was “deeply troubled” by the situation and said “we believe a crime has occurred.” Apparently, they could not determine which one, Hill or his girlfriend, broke the boy's arm.

Howe also said the case could be reopened if new information surfaced.

Hill released a statement through his attorney earlier Thursday in which he said his “son’s health and happiness is my number one priority.” Hill said his focus is on “working hard to be the best person for my family and our community that I can be, and the best player to help our team win.” And Sports Talk exploded over whether or not he would be suspended without an actual charge.

Less than eight hours later, KCTV in Kansas City aired part of an 11-minute audio file in which Espinal tells Hill that when asked about an injury to the child’s arm, the boy replied:, “Daddy did it.”

Hill denied any role in what happened to the child, saying: “He says Daddy does a lot of things.”

Espinal also tells Hill their son is “terrified of you.”

Hill replies, “You need to be terrified of me, too, bitch.”

Later in the conversation, Espinal asks Hill, “What do you do when the child is bad? You make him open up his arms and you punch him in the chest.”

KCTV said the audio was sent to the station without disclosing from whom. The station said it had shared the audio with Howe’s office, which did not return a message late Thursday.

Hill is a two-time Pro Bowl wide receiver with a history of domestic issues, including a case in which he was accused of punching Espinal while she was pregnant and they were attending Oklahoma State. And she is pregnant again! With twins! :hyper:

["Snip!"--Ed.]

That statement was thrown into question by the audio, during which Espinal indicates she covered for Hill while answering questions from investigators: “Now I really want you to sit and think about it,” she tells Hill, “because I rode for you against that detective.”

["Snip!"--Ed.]

Last year, the Chiefs released star running back Kareem Hunt following a video that showed him pushing and kicking a woman in a hotel hallway.

Before the audio of Hill was broadcast, NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell warned about making any judgments before getting all the facts. But he did make it clear that Hill could be punished under the league’s personal conduct policy, regardless of the legal situation.

“You don’t make a decision without having those facts,” Goodell said. Like denying science or denying you received a video of Ray Rice punching out his girlfriend when the police sent it to you?

Toddler fed vegan diet so malnourished she had no teeth, court told

A baby girl fed a vegan diet by her parents was so malnourished by the time she was 19 months old she didn't have any teeth and looked like she was just three months old, a Sydney court has heard.

The toddler's parents – who can't be named for legal reasons – have pleaded guilty to failing to provide for her causing danger of serious injury.

Court documents reveal she was fed oats, potatoes, rice, tofu, bread, peanut butter and rice milk. A mouthful of fruit or two sultanas were her snacks.

The eastern suburbs couple, who hadn't vaccinated the toddler, faced a sentence hearing at Downing Centre District Court on Thursday.

The girl, who was taken to hospital after she suffered a seizure in March 2018, was fed the strict plant-based diet which left her malnourished and suffering a preventable bone disease.

Munchausen by proxy, in a way. Then they could enact the role of the grieving parents.

They will blame the cancer and failure to improve on "Western Medicine/Big Pharma/Trump."

https://www.theglobeandmail.com/canada/ ... daughters/
The mother of a young Newfoundland girl who died last summer is furious her daughter’s altered image was used online as part of an antivaccination campaign.

She has screenshots showing someone posted on a Facebook page an image of Nevaeh Denine’s face, with text claiming her death was related to vaccines.

The girl, who was diagnosed with neuroblastoma at an early age, was well known in Newfoundland and Labrador for starting a lemonade stand to raise money for children with cancer.

“To say this has upset our family is an understatement,” the girl’s mother, Holly Denine, said in a text message Tuesday. “Nevaeh loved social media, interviews and talking about her lemonade stand. She was so proud when someone stopped her and told her how her journey through treatment with cancer inspired them or helped them in their own battle with the disease.”

For someone to “steal her image and use it in such a cruel way is heartbreaking to say the least,” she added.

Antivaxers are truly among the lowest of the low and the stupidest of the stupid. Too bad we can't bring back the ancient practice of declaring a person to be "outlaw" so that laws don't apply to them and anyone may freely kill them without penalty.

Cadesha Bishop

This Fucking Asshole
A woman has been charged with murder after pushing a 74-year-old man off a bus and to his death.

The 25-year-old woman, Cadesha Bishop, was arrested after Las Vegas police released a video of the incident, and encouraging potential witnesses to come forward with any information they might have.

The man, Serge Fournier, initially survived the fall, but later died from injuries.

In the video, Ms Bishop can be seen speaking with Fournier after she entered the bus, and as he moved to get out of the vehicle with a metal cart.

As Fournier passes the suspect, she then pushes him from behind forcefully. He can be seen falling out of the bus and onto the sidewalk outside, landing on top of the metal cart he was carrying.

Fellow passengers and witnesses told the Las Vegas Review-Journal that Ms Bishop had been shouting profanities at other passengers before Fournier interceded and asked her to be nicer.

She then pushed him out of the bus, witnesses said. After the push, she then walked away without offering to help the senior citizen.

If convicted the government will grant her guaranteed food and lodging with a community of her peers. In a way, no real consequences, because she won't give a damn one way or the other.

Students at Ohio school put bodily fluids in food for teachers, reports say

Ugh. Well, that's the last time they'll have a cooking contest for students.

Emma, a healthy Shih Tzu mix, was euthanized to fulfill her late owner's dying wish that the dog be put down -- and then laid to rest with her.

The dog arrived at the Chesterfield County Animal Shelter in Chesterfield, Virginia, on March 8 after her owner's death, where she stayed for two weeks. During that time, the shelter was in contact with the executor of the dead woman's estate trying to keep the dog alive.

"We did suggest they could sign the dog over on numerous occasions, because it's a dog we could easily find a home for and re-home," said Carrie Jones, manager of Chesterfield Animal Services told CNN affiliate WWBT .

On March 22, the executor of the owner's estate came to the shelter to get the dog, a spokeswoman for the Chesterfield County Police told CNN. The shelter again offered to have the dog signed over and be adopted out, but the executor declined.

Emma was then taken to a local veterinarian, euthanized and taken to a pet cremation center in Richmond, Virginia, WWBT reported. Her ashes were placed in an urn and returned to the representative of the woman's estate.

A disabled woman who gave birth at a Phoenix care facility was likely pregnant before, documents allege

Ugh. And to top it all off, this woman has been institutionalized since the age of about 3 years old. They originally reported that she was in a "vegetative state" but now they describe her as "disabled" and having "intellectual disabilities".
https://cdn.cnn.com/cnnnext/dam/assets/ ... us-169.jpg
(CNN)A disabled woman who gave birth at an Arizona long-term care facility had been raped repeatedly, and had likely been pregnant before, new documents allege.

Her lawyers filed a $45 million notice of claim to Arizona on Wednesday with allegations against the state along with Hacienda HealthCare, where the woman had lived since 1992.

She delivered a boy at the facility in late December, shocking her caregivers, who said they had no idea she was pregnant. She has since left the facility.
Authorities obtained DNA samples from male staff members and arrested licensed practical nurse Nathan Sutherland, 36, who was caring for the woman. He was charged with sexual assault and vulnerable adult abuse, and has pleaded not guilty.
New allegations revealed
In the notice of claim filed before litigation for settlement discussion, the family made a series of allegations against the state and the health care facility where the now 29-year-old woman lived.
(1992 was 26 years ago. She is now 29.)
The Maricopa County Medical Center examined the woman after she gave birth and concluded she'd been "violated repeatedly," the documents allege. Her giving birth was likely a "repeat parous event," which means she may have been pregnant before, the documents say.
From the claim, it's unclear whether she carried the previous pregnancy her family believes she had to term.
It said the woman suffered multiple sexual assaults that caused her permanent physical and emotional pain, and caused her parents significant emotional distress.
The woman has intellectual disabilities as a result of childhood seizures, and is bedridden and nonverbal. But she can move some of her extremities, respond to sound and make facial gestures, according to her family.
Her parents had previously requested that she be cared for by female employees and was assured that would happen, but it did not, the documents allege. Instead, unsupervised male caretakers, including the suspect, were allowed to go into her room, the documents say.
The documents accuse the state of being "vicariously liable for the negligence, gross negligence and medical negligence" at Hacienda.
It also raises a question for me about the medical ethics of the whole situation, even if she hadn't been raped. This is not a life. Is this a life worth living, even without the rape? Is euthanasia not kinder? If it were a horse with a broken leg, we would "put it down as a kindness". But since she's a homo sapiens, we keep this bedridden, nonverbal body alive for decades. Is that truly the most ethical decision?
