We now bring you “Andy Parker, the Actor”!

Andy Parker is the father of WDBJ TV reporter Alison Parker who, together with cameraman Adam Ward, allegedly was shot dead on August 26, 2015 by disgruntled former colleague Vester Lee Flanagan, aka Bryce Williams, while conducting a live television interview near Smith Mountain Lake in Moneta, VA.

See “Father of slain TV reporter Alison Parker is a former professional actor“.

An enterprising person named Bill Sullivan found these commercials featuring Andy Parker.

Andy’s corny acting is face-palm groan-inducing. No wonder he never made it big time in New York and dropped out of the acting profession after 6 years.

Meanwhile, Andy Parker says now that he is campaigning for gun control he will probably have to get a firearm to defend himself: “When you’re in the media, as you know, and when you are taking on an issue like this, there are a lot of people who take exception to what you are saying, so I will probably have to do that.” (Source:The Guardian)

Mr. Parker seems to be unclear on the concept of HYPOCRISY.

The cat who goes to school

Bubba1

Anne Gelhaus reports for the San Jose Mercury News, Aug. 19, 2015, that the Marienthal family adopted Bubba the cat in 2009 and tried to make him an indoor cat. But Bubba likes to roam and has become a fixture in two nearby schools — Leland High School and Bret Harte Middle School in San Jose, California.

Amber Marienthal said “He’s really loud” and that she still gets calls from staff and students who see him on campus and think he’s lost.

Like many members of Leland High School’s student body, Bubba is a social animal — he attends sporting events, hangs out on campus with his buddies and has a Facebook page dedicated to his exploits. Bubba even has a Leland student card.

But unlike Leland’s other students, Bubba can roam the school’s halls freely during class. And if he wants to be excused, he doesn’t have to raise his paw; he just meows.

Bubba is known and loved by many at both schools, as his 600-plus Facebook followers attest. Marienthal, the administrator of Bubba’s Facebook page, says Bubba’s fans want him to branch out into other social media. She says, “People want me to get him on Instagram” but “I only have so much time to devote to my cat’s social life.”

Bubba has been featured in other media. He’s been written up in the high school’s newspaper, senior magazine and yearbook. Marienthal says “The students at Bret Harte petitioned to have a statue erected in his honor,” but their petition was denied.

Both of Marienthal’s sons attended Bret Harte and are now at Leland. She says Bubba started hanging out on campus about a year before her oldest son Matthew, who just started his sophomore year at Leland, entered sixth grade at the middle school. And she says the cat is likely to stay in school even after both of “his boys” graduate.

Marienthal says she’s gotten no complaints from staff or students at either school about Bubba prowling the campuses. Her main worry is that Bubba has come close to shaving off one of his nine lives on several occasions. She’s seen him lay down on Leland’s soccer field in the middle of practice and wait for one of the players to pet him. “He’s really social and he has no fear,” Marienthal says. “I’m surprised he’s still around.”

While he usually makes it home at night, Bubba did have a scare when he wandered onto the Leland campus during registration last month and accidentally got locked inside a classroom for 36 hours. Luckily, a security guard heard him meowing and set him free.

Since Bubba meanders freely in and out of classrooms, teachers have learned how to deal with his presence. “One teacher made the mistake of buying treats for him,” Marienthal recalls, which led Bubba to sit by his classroom door and wait to be fed. “Bubba would meow for treats. [The teacher] got sick of the noise.”

Marienthal says she’d like to see her cat included in another important campus activity: “We’d love it if they let him do cap and gown in 2017. That’s the group that’s been with him through Bret Harte and Leland.”

Meanwhile, Bubba has developed attendance habits that students may want to emulate. “He waits for school to start, and he doesn’t come home until all the sports are done,” Marienthal says. “As long as he’s alive, I think he’ll hang out at the school.”

Bizarre: Car thief dances when stopped by police

Is it my imagination or are Americans getting crazier?

ABC7 reports that on Wednesday night, Aug. 26, 2015, a suspected car thief led police on a wild chase in downtown Los Angeles, the got out of the car and started dancing jiggling her fat in the middle of the street.

According to Los Angeles police, the woman was blasting through red lights, weaving in and out of traffic, ran over a spike strip and blew a tire, but that still didn’t stop her.

At one point, she got out of the car and did a little dance, but then got back inside the vehicle.

A few moments later, officers swarmed the car, pulled her out and took her into custody near the 2000 block of East 8th Street.

The woman is believed to have been under the influence.

Why are there long lines everywhere at Disney but nobody in line to see the HALL of PRESIDENTS?

Even an animatronic copy of President Lucifer can’t draw a crowd these days…

Oh. That’s why.  All respect for this office has been squandered by this president and his group of lying spokes-weasels.

San Francisco goes down the toilet. Public health hazard!

San Francisco, the leftwing City by the Bay that’s ever so tolerant about the homeless, estimated to number 10,000, has a huge problem with people urinating and defecating in public, as attested to by the images below.

Nearly two years ago, the problem was already rampant. A citizen resident, Noah Sanders, warned that tourists are vowing not to return to San Francisco because of encounters with human turd. Sanders wrote: that the odor of piss and shit that permeates so many of our neighborhoods

“[T[he odor of piss and shit…permeats…our neigborhoods…. I have experienced days, even weeks, in a row when I’ve had to pull my eager dog away from steaming pancakes of human shit, or I’ve had to step over a sad, sick turd-smeared man passed out among sculpture-like piles of his own doo-doo mere feet from my doorway. However San Francisco’s poop problem isn’t confined to the streets of the Mission. Other neighborhoods ­– particularly SOMA, Mid-Market, and the Tenderloin ­– have a similar human-excrement predicament. Let’s face it: if you live in the city, regardless of location or class affiliation, you’ve probably had your own encounter with the aftermath of a public number-two.”

Recently, public peeing nearly caused a man’s death when a street light pole, its base corroded by age and urine, crashed down on the hood of his car, missing him by about a foot. Public Utilities Commission spokesman Tyrone Jue told the San Francisco Gate, “We believe there was some contribution of dog or human urine on the base of the pole.”

Ever so tolerant, Jue advised the public urinators to pee instead in a public restroom or at a fire hydrant because, unlike the humble light pole, the fire hydrant is made of a stronger material — cast iron. (Daily Caller)

And what’s mayor Ed Lee’s solution?

Brandon M. Mercer reports for the San Francisco Chronicle, Aug. 26, 2o15:

San Francisco is known for its Golden Gate Bridge, world class cuisine, panoply of cultures, striking skyline, frigid fog, and homeless. More specifically, aggressive panhandling and homeless defecating and urinating in public. And sometimes doing even worse things….

Mayor Ed Lee announced this week that“the homeless must leave the street” for Super Bowl 50…. “We’ll give you an alternative…. We are always going to be supportive. But you are going to have to leave the street….

The idea is to house street campers either in the city’s new Navigation Center in the Mission District — where people can live while they are routed into housing, rehabilitation, employment and other services — or in an estimated 500 units of supportive housing the mayor hopes to have rehabbed and open by the end of the year.

Meanwhile, residents and tourists should arm themselves with Human Wasteland, an interactive map showing areas in San Francisco to avoid. The map is the clever creation of civil-engineer-turned-web-developer Jennifer Wong, who obtained her information of turd deposits from reports of encounters by the public to SF311, the City of San Francisco’s Street and Sidewalk Cleaning division.
