It takes a lot to get my undivided attention, but the below woman clearly has it, and I am sure the Republicans will be touting her for Presidency now.

HONOLULU — A woman accused of telling the Secret Service she would “blow away” Michelle Obama was in federal custody Tuesday as the Obama family planned to travel to Hawaii.

Kristy Lee Roshia, 35, was charged with threatening a family member of the president and assaulting a federal agent after being arrested Saturday less than two miles from the Kailua home where the Obama family planned to

This bitch be crazy y'all!

stay during a holiday visit later this week.

Roshia called the Secret Service’s Boston office last month and told a receptionist, “I will kill Michelle Obama” and “I will kill Marines,” according to a Secret Service affidavit.

During the same call, she said she would “blow away” Michelle Obama, the document states.

A message left at the federal public defender’s office in Honolulu was not immediately returned.

Roshia has a history of leaving rambling messages and sending poems, love letters and photographs of herself to the Secret Service, according to the affidavit.

As early as 2004, she told the agency that “although her mission is to assassinate the president, she has no desire to hurt him,” the document states.

The affidavit said Roshia acknowledged to Secret Service agents before her arrest that she had threatened Michelle Obama.

It also says Roshia said she knew where Obama would be staying in Hawaii, and the reason she had traveled to Hawaii in September was “to protect Obama.”

Roshia was also charged with lunging at a Secret Service agent, striking him in the arms and face during her arrest.

She was being held without bail pending a Wednesday detention hearing.

And you thought your granny was innocent? Think again!

A Massachusetts jury has charged a woman of 98 with suffocating her 100-year-old nursing home roommate after complaining of too many visitors.

Elizabeth Barrow celebrated her 100th birthday at her son's home in August

Police in Dartmouth initially believed Elizabeth Barrow had committed suicide but eventually recommended a murder charge against Laura Lundquist.

A judge ordered Ms Lundquist to be placed in a local hospital to assess her fitness to stand trial.

The women had been sharing a room for about a year when the death occurred.

Mrs Barrow was found with a plastic bag tied around her head in her bed at the Brandon Woods nursing home on 24 September.

“We’re devastated,” her son Scott Barrow told Boston’s WCVB-TV .

“I mean, my mother was well-loved. She loved everyone at the nursing home. She had a daily routine where she would go up and down the hallway and hug people who weren’t as fortunate as she.”

Husband’s room

Mr Barrow said that Ms Lundquist had complained to nursing home officials about the number of visitors his mother received, and had made “threatening” and “harassing” remarks to her.

He had asked for the women to be separated, he added, but had been assured the two were getting along.

His mother, he was quoted by The Associated Press as saying, had told him she did not want to leave her room because that was where she and her husband of 65 years had lived for several years before he died in 2007.

Mr Barrow told WCVB-TV his mother had been alert, active and still going strong before her death.

“The day before this happened we took her out for lunch at her favourite place and then we went shopping for winter clothes and so forth and she was looking forward to, you know, continuing her life,” he said.

A Superior Court judge ordered Ms Lundquist to be sent to Taunton State Hospital for an evaluation.

Her defence lawyer, Carl Levin, said she had a “long-standing diagnosis of dementia as well as issues of cognitive impairment”.

“Her family is very saddened for the loss of Ms Barrow and they are also very saddened by what’s happened,” he added.

“Without acknowledging her responsibility, it’s a sad event for both families. It just really points to the issue of mental health with the elderly.”

Were Ms Lundquist to appear in court, she would be one of the oldest people, if not the oldest, ever to face a murder charge in the US, the BBC’s Kevin Connolly reports from Washington.

This is just awful.

U.S. District Judge Adalberto Jordan dismissed a lawsuit yesterday, essentially finding that the Jackson Memorial Hospital was within its rights to leave a dying woman alone while denying her present and immediate family to visit her, be updated on her condition, or even to provide the hospital with medically necessary information.

Named in the now-dismissed suit were Jackson social worker Garnett Frederick and attending physicians Alois Zauner and Carlos Alberto Cruz, who made the decision not to allow Janice Langbehn, Lisa Pond’s partner, to have standard family access to information, even after receiving durable Power of Attorney and a Living Will naming Janice as legal guardian with authority to make end-of-life decisions.

Lisa Marie Pond 1967 - 2007

Lisa Marie Pond 1967 - 2007

Jennifer Piedra, spokesperson for Jackson Memorial, released this statement after Judge Jordan said they could continue to turn [lesbian and gay] people away from their dying family members:

We have always believed and known that the staff at Jackson treats everyone equally, and that their main concern is the well-being of the patients in their care. At Jackson Health System, we believe in a culture of inclusion. For more than 90 years, the institution has taken great pride in serving everyone who enters its doors, regardless of race, creed, religious beliefs or sexual orientation. We also employ a very diverse workforce, one that mirrors the community we serve.

Jackson will continue to work with the gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender community to ensure that everyone knows they are welcome at all of our facilities, where they will receive the highest quality of medical care.

Yes, that sounds perfectly reasonable. If only there were a way to judge their words against their actions. Oh wait, there is, and guess what! They’re completely and plainly full of it! In March, Janice told the story of Lisa’s final hours:

On February 18, 2007, Lisa Pond, my partner of nearly 18 years and 3 of our 4 adopted children: Danielle, David and Katie were on board the Rfamily cruise preparing to set sail. Before leaving port, Lisa suddenly collapsed while watching the children play basketball. The kids were banging on the stateroom door saying, “Mommy was hurt!” I opened the door, and took one look at Lisa and knew the situation was very serious. As a medical social worker for many years, I have seen people in critical condition. I knew that my life partner was gravely ill. As the ship was about to leave, we had no choice but to seek medical help in an unfamiliar city. After local medics arrived, we hurried off the ship to the closest hospital in Miami, Ryder Trauma Center at Jackson Memorial Hospital.

As Lisa was put into the ambulance I had no idea when she signed “I love you” to the kids and I it would be the last time I would see her beautiful blue eyes. We arrived at the trauma center minutes before her ambulance. I tried to follow her gurney into the trauma area and was stopped by the trauma team and told to go to the waiting room. The kids and I did as we were told.

We arrived shortly after 3:30 in the afternoon, around 4pm, a social worker came out and introduced himself as Garnett Frederick and said, “you are in an anti-gay city and state. And without a health care proxy you will not see Lisa nor know of her condition”. He then turned to leave; I stopped him and asked for his fax number because I said “we had legal Durable Powers of Attorney” and would get him the documents. Within a short time of meeting this social worker, I contacted friends in Lacey, WA, our hometown, who went to our house and faxed the legal documents required for me to make medical decisions for Lisa.

I never imagined as I paced that tiny waiting room that I would not see Lisa’s bright blue eyes again or hold her warm, loving hands. Feeling helpless as I continued to wait, I attempted to sneak back into the trauma bay but all the doors to the trauma area had key codes, preventing me from entering. Sitting alone with our luggage, our children and my thoughts, I watched numbly as other families were invited back into the trauma center to visit with loved ones. I was still waiting to hear what was happening with Lisa, realizing as the time passed that I was not being allowed to see her and if the social worker’s words were any indication it was because we were gay.

Anger, despair and disbelief wracked my brain as I tried to figure out a way to find out what was going on with Lisa. I finally thought to call our family doctor back in Olympia (on a Sunday afternoon at home) to see if she could find out what was happening. While on the phone with our doctor in Olympia, a surgeon appeared. The surgeon told me that Lisa, who was just 39 years old, had suffered massive bleeding in her brain from an aneurysm.

A short while later, two more surgeons appeared and explained the massive bleed in Lisa’s brain gave her little chance to survive and if she did it would be in a persistent vegetative state. Lisa had made me promise to her over and over in our 18 years together to never allow this to happen to her. I let the surgeons know Lisa wishes, which were also spelled out in her Living Wills and Advance Directive. I was then promised by the doctors that I would be brought to see Lisa as “soon as she was cleaned up”. At that point all life saving measures ceased and I asked that she be prepared for organ donation.

Yet, the children and I continued to wait and wait. A Hospital Chaplain appeared and asked if I wanted to pray and I looked at her dumbfounded as if I hadn’t already been doing that for over four hours. I immediately asked for a Catholic Priest to perform Lisa’s Last rites. A short time later, a Catholic priest escorted me back to recite the Last Rites and it was my first time in nearly 5hrs of seeing Lisa. After seeing her I knew the children needed to see her immediately and be able to say their goodbyes and begin the grieving process. Yet the priest escorted me back out to the waiting room. Where I was faced with the young faces of our beautiful children to explain “other mommy” was going to heaven.

I continued to assert myself over the ensuing hours again that we needed to be with Lisa. I even showed the Admitting clerk the children’s birth certificates with both Lisa and my name on them… and said if you won’t let me back, let her children be with her. I was told they were “too young”. I thought how old do you need to be to say goodbye to your mother?

In nearly eight hours, Lisa lay at Ryder Trauma Center moving toward brain death – completely alone and I continue to this day to feel like a failure for not being there to hold her hand to tell her how much we loved her, to comfort her and to sign in her hand “I love you”. All my pleas fell on deaf ears.

Lisa’s sister arrived driving straight from Jacksonville as soon as I knew Lisa would not survive. She announced who she was and I was at her side staring at the same person who had been denying me access all those hours. It was only then that I was told Lisa had been moved almost an hour earlier to ICU… and the hospital just kept the children and I waiting in the same waiting room, where Lisa was not even at.

On Monday February 19, 2007 at 10:45am, Lisa was officially declared Brain Dead. It was then that individuals from the Organ Donation Agency became involved (who I must point out are completely separate professionals from Jackson Memorial Hospital) that I finally was validated as Lisa’s spouse. They asked me which organs she wanted donated.

Explain to me again how a straight couple would have been split like this even for five minutes, let alone hours. Explain to me how three children would have been kept from their straight mother’s side, how a dying straight person would be treated in such an cruel, vicious, I-don’t-have-enough-words way.

Tell me again why the word “marriage” doesn’t matter. Tell me again that we should just be patient and not rock the boat.

Better yet, tell it to Lisa Pond’s partner and children.

Yesterday a judge shrugged his shoulders and left LGBT victims unprotected. When will Americans demand better? Will Americans demand better?

Do you ever find yourself wondering “what the fuck happened to  to my life and how did it get so bad?”  Well if you are sitting in front of your computer right now and have no clue what to do or where to go with your life then look no further cause this just might impact who you are and what you do, and in the end get you on the enriched path of success.  My advice for you is simple, DON’T GET A SELF-HELP BOOK  cause all they do is mind fuck you and get you to become the annoying the friend that everyone in your circle talks about when they see that annoying person coming their way.  You may say “I don’t fucking do that, I am a kindly saint that loves everyone”.  May I just say BULLSHIT, and in the immortal words of Dane Cook “then your that friend”.  So to recap what you just read, NO SELF-HELP BOOKS!  Seeing your self actualization will only rip you to shreds and make you hate yourself even more.

One thing you must never do is ask your friends that you rarely see cause they are only your work friends unless you have no friends aside from your work relations- which in turn makes you the saddest human being on Earth.  Ask those you confide in cause a true friend will stick closer to you than your brother, (hence  the term BROMANCE).  But never go to a friend who you have classified as a drinking buddy or someone you would get high with, although both may loosen you up and make you feel like you have no regrets it’ll get you nowhere except lesser cash in your wallet or maybe even ass-raped by someone on the streets.  Thnk about it, I haven’t.

One thing you could to help yourself is to try and read the Bible, now I know what you are thinking “why would I read that?” cause the Bible has everything- war, sex, rape, death, funny thing is it also has a portion about masturbation but you have to read it closely to understand impending on which version you are reading.  But alas, the Bible will also bring you closer to God, now I don’t want to offend the non-religious ones who are reading this at the moment, so I ask… have I offended you?  Well then, suck it up, grow a pair, rub some dirt in it!  What are you?  A pussy-willow!?

You could also go out and experience life till you find your calling, dance in the moonlight at the bonfire on a beach, have random sex on a Euro-trip with hot men and sexy women, ride your bike without a helmet through on-coming traffic.  Shove ice cream into people’s faces.  Lick the Freedom Bell!  You can do anything you desire yourself to- well almost anything, we got to be real here, we were always told growing up that “you can be anything you want to be Billy”.  Billy is not my name, and as you can easily see Silvanemesis is a nom de plume.

Whatever you do do it well, do it better than those before you, if someone did something you want to take a whack at it try to outshine them in every single way- well just as long as that person you are trying to outshine isn’t a rapist or serial killer.  I don’t want someone to ass-rape me cause I will dial 9-11 and the Operator says “9-11, what is your emergency?” and my response is me screaming “I am being raped up the ass and it hurts, I’m bleeding!!!”  Cause let’s be serious, they will then tell me the ever so popular line and you know it, the “please hold” cause someone jay-walking is so much more important then my anal virginity.

So what did we learn there in the above paragraph, NOT TO OUTSHINE RAPISTS AND SERIAL KILLERS.  I guess what I am saying here is this, your life is a nothing more than a grain of sand on the shore amidst the pebbles that the waves wash over.  The other grains of sand look to the pebbles saying “Wow, I wish I was one of them, they stick out”.  Be like the pebble and dream big.  If that has still confused you after the “Apple Brown Betty” that was just rubbed up in your face and you yelped out “Eww stinky!”  Then maybe this next stick will get you going.  A ship is magnificient creation by man, it defies the odds, it cuts through the waters at seemingly breakneck speeds, they are rarely viewed as marvelous beauties when they are docked at harbor or lying at anchor, ships are only really majestic at the moments  when they are free, riding the waves with the wind at it’s side.  Be like a ship and don’t care what others think about you or that you haven’t found out your life’s calling.  There might have been some things along the way till now that others might look and say “How the fuck did that person do that?”   Truth is we never really in full detail how good we did it until it was done and people stare in full awe of you.  Be like the words Baz Luhrman wrote in his mind-blowing song that many graduating seniors hear before walking the stage.  So I guess what I am saying is this: get up already and do something, don’t be a whiny bitch cause you only aggravate those around you, do something that doesn’t revolve around you seeing how many new friends you have on your myspace, or downloading porn, put the Will Smith movie on pause cause if you are watching the being of “Seven Pounds” and have no clue upon what is yet to come then your an idiot who can’t see it is so obvious and he intends on offing himself with his pet.  Yes I just took a crack at Will Smith, I mean how many times can he go saving someone’s life in oneof his movies?  And yet it doesn’t stop him, and neither should it to you.  This has been my first blog on here so I hope you liked it.  Seriously, are you still reading at this point?  While maybe I should start talking about that one time that I woke up in Chicago hand-cuffed to a radiator with my pants down at my ankles and a sore ass…

POLICE are hunting two drag queens after two midget wrestlers were murdered following a drinking orgy.

Brothers Alberto and Alejandro Jimenez, known as Parkita and Espectrito II, were found dead in a hotel room last month.

Police had first said they were looking for two hookers, who are understood to have poisoned the pair before robbing them.

But investigators now want to speak to two local drag queens.

They believe they may have assumed their male identities and gone into hiding.

A hotel worker discovered the bodies of the wrestlers laying in the beds. It’s believed  the grapplers overdosed after taking a dose of eye drops combined with alcohol.

In Mexico, it is a common crime for gangs of prostitutes to rob their clients after they pass out from ingesting tainted drinks.

Authorities revealed the brothers did not have any trace of physical violence and that their belongings were missing from the scene.

Oh this is getting so interesting! I am expecting plenty more “widows” to come crawling out to claim his extate!

The latest is Nona Paris Lola Ankhesenamun Jackson….

I mean the name alone screams FRAUD!

However, Michal spent some time in the middle east, and where is this crazy woman from? Yep, you have it correct.

Nona Paris Lola Ankhesenamun Jackson, who lives in London, asks “that all my husband’s properties, monies and assets must be transferred to me immediately” and “my husband’s body must be returned to the coroner’s body [sic] or the mortuary immediately.”

Of course, there is no evidence this woman had any relationship whatsoever to Michael Jackson. She’s had an active court case since December of last year, claiming she was married to the singer.

Nona also claims all of Michael’s children are hers and that she didn’t authorize them to live with Katherine Jackson.

She now claims, “Though he died to this earth he lives with my father [Satan the Devil] Khalid Lucifer.”

The doc says “For any questions, I can be contacted at [email address removed] or leave my children alone.”

She even has a blog!!!
