Back to the grind stone Folks


Good morning all you Gazetters.  We all hit the sack last night with the anticipation we would wake up a winner. These days, just waking up makes us winners. As far as the BIG ONE goes, there was only one lucky stiff in Massachusetts that hit the 752 million dollar Powerball jackpot. It was the biggest jackpot hit by one person in the history of Powerball.

As for the rest of us hopefuls, it is back to the grind stone and waiting for the next BIG ONE to come along.  Better luck next time.

To the winner. If you are a Goomba Gazette follower and played because of my encouragement; don’t forget who sent you.

By his rhetoric, it looks like PDT is becoming  more and more like a politician with his threats. It doesn’t appear that he has the strength he thought he did. He keeps getting shot down at every corner.  Hopefully, someday the country will come together and accomplish something instead of wasting precious time and calling each-other; &%^#@(&%$#@.

Confederate flag maker reportedly sees sales increase after Charlottesville

I still say; trying to suppress, hide or dismiss history is a very bad idea.  If we follow suit in all areas, the Holocaust  and slavery were just a dream and never happened. Let the mistakes from yesteryear be our guidelines to never having a repeat performance.

Woman fired for being ‘too cute’ may have a case after all

Pluses and minuses to everything. Blond massage therapist Dilek Edwards brought charges against her former boss, Wall Street chiropractor Charles Nicolai and his former lesbian Playboy Playmate wife, Stephanie Adams.

Dilek, 33, said she was axed after Nicolai admitted to his 46-year-old wife that she “might become jealous’’ of his bubbly staffer because she was “too cute.’’ You can be the judge and jury in this one.

MMA fighter arrested for allegedly killing weightlifter in street fight

Who knows what precipitated the fight; gotta be booty. The Russian MMA fighter Anar Ziranov is in a lot of hot borscht today after he killed weightlifter Andrey Drachev in a street fight.  Drachev was clearly no threat to the MMA guy when he was on his back defenseless.  The video will surely put him in the gulag  for a very long time.

Is this what his mommy and daddy taught this thug?? You can bet on one thing; this BOY is going to have a long, hard road ahead of him in life. Probably with a lot of numbers on his chest.

Anything is possible if there is the desire and hard work attached.  These three guys are a testament to that. Good luck fellas!!

One would think by now that colleges would put a definite stop hazing and for that matter to boozing.

If these statistics are not enough to put the breaks on misbehaving at college, I don’t know what is.

National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism
College Drinking
Harmful and underage college drinking are significant
public health problems, and they exact an enormous
toll on the intellectual and social lives of students
on campuses across the United States.
Drinking at college has become a ritual that students
often see as an integral part of their higher education
experience.
Many students come to college
with established drinking habits, and the college
environment can exacerbate the problem.
According to
a national survey, almost 60 percent of college students ages 18–22 drank alcohol in
the past month,
Deaths – A number very hard to believe. About 1,825 college students between the ages
of 18 and 24 die from alcohol-related unintentional injuries, including motor-vehicle crashes.
Assault
About 696,000 students between the ages of 18 and 24 are assaulted by another student who has been drinking.
Sexual Assault
About 97,000 students between the ages of 18 and 24 report experiencing alcohol-related sexual assault or date rape. This is a very big number. Many of the rape cases go unreported.  If the booze and drugs were taken out the equation, these number would be cut by over 90%.
Now I ask a stupid question, again. Are these horrible statistics enough to put the breaks on college boozing? I guess not. Boozing, drug use and misbehaving is a bigger part of the the college routine then anyone wants to admit.  There are too many people making too much money for the authorities to put an end to college misbehaving.
Just like the sports venues. Do we have any idea how much $oldi is made at sporting events selling boze?  That fact and that alone is why the owners of the venues and teams will ALWAYS sell fire-water to the fans. $oldi is first, safety is DEAD last.
What the hell does this fool of a judge have between his ears. Obviously not much!! There absolutely should be a means of identification supplied by all voters.
I will be the first to acknowledge that there are way too many instances of black people being killed by the cops. My question is; what is the crime ratio between white and blacks?? My answer is; Blacks make up approximately 13% of the US population while they commit 52% of crime. In 2014 according to the FBI, 90% of black homicide victims were killed by other black people.
I don’t know if it is just me. I have always been of the opinion; if we do not put ourselves into a criminal situation, that is 9/10’s of the battle. Don’t go where you don’t belong and don’t do what you should do. It is pretty simple.
On the other side of the coin; I blame the government for not initiating programs to get potential criminals off the streets. The impoverished neighborhoods in this country are a disgrace. There is virtually no where for these people to go.
Employment may not be the complete answer but I will say, it would certainly put a gigantic dent on the crime rate. If only half of all the thugs out there did want to accept a government job, that would be a tremendous start. Possibly it would become infectious.
With all of the bulls-shit being slung back and froth between PDT and the Boulder Rollers; if that kind of effort was put into getting people off the streets, we could cut down tremendously on the crime rate, keep our streets clean, cut back dramatically on police brutality, keep our prison population down and start making our citizens responsible citizens. Anyone one see a down-side to a plan like that??  If you do, you are a fool!!
