Another stupid public employee

I’m not sure why this idiotic state worker left enough clues to identify him/her as a state worker.

Wow, talk about shameless

During the April 3 shootings in Binghamton, New York, supervisors at the Department of Social Services did not permit their employees to leave the building (for obvious safety reasons, even though the shootings were in a different building) One of the employees, an idiot named James Kauchis, filed a formal grievance claiming that he should be paid for the lunch hour because he was not allowed to leave the building.

With thirteen dead (not including the shooter, who is not a victim) and four wounded, the first thing this asshole thinks of is being paid for being deprived of his lunch hour.  Maybe this government worker should get a new job at one of the bailed-out financial institution, where someone with his sense of priorities would fit in well.

What a gold digger

A 36-year old Swedish countess is divorcing her husband. Their prenuptial agreement states that she would receive $43 million if they divorced. She is claiming that is not enough, because at her current spending rate of $53,800 per week, that money would not last her for the rest of her life.

How do you spend $53,800 per week? Well,  this article states:

Her weekly expenses also include $700 for limousine service, $4,500 for clothes, $1,000 for hair and skin treatments, $1,500 for restaurants and entertainment, and $8,000 for travel.

Amazing. One would think that a former investment banker would be smarter than that. Or maybe she used to work for AIG or Bank of America???

Blogger wanna-be

I am on the brink of thinking that people should be required to pass an exam in order to be able to blog.

Somebody asked the following question

I’m NEW!! and my first atempt at bloging!!

Where do I find my Blog address to send to my friends!?!

and got the following response:

The url is in the address bar! look at internet explorer (or any browser you’re using… where you type something too to search…if you’re on your blog…what you see there is your blog address..it starts with…
www…. or ..http://………… 🙂

One would think that anyone who has ever used a computer could understand that, but another blogger-wannabe responded:

This reply does not help me at all. I\m new too and I do not know how to get to my blog. Please help me.

FAIL!

Popcorn man

Sacramento police recently arrested a man for burglary after they found a trail of popcorn kernels leading from the store he burglarized to his apartment.

I wonder if this idiot is related to the moron in Fresno who was arrested after leaving a trail of teriyaki chicken from the car he burglarized to his apartment. If not, maybe he is related to the idiots in Illinois (none of whom are the soon to be ex-governor) who robbed a pizza delivery person but left snow tracks for the police to track.

Um, I didn’t write this!

This is a comment from this story in the Sacramento Bee (I copied and pasted this directly from the article – the numerous errors are not mine):

Here we go I am a caltrans worker I knew this was comming , furloughs and layoffs . and if you didnt you must be smoking something . I for one have already lined up a new job , those who have skills as I do wont worry those who dont , will . Bottom line if you didnt see this your either not very inteligent or very foolish , did you think any operation can contniue the way this state has been run into the ground , realise it the gravy train is done .Time to either move on or live with whatever you have to live with . Sorry kids time to grow up and suck it up , there is only so much money and once its gone its gone . This here is a reality check of things to come within the next few years , sorry to be so honest , but reality is just that , reality

Hey dude, you have as much right to call other people “not very inteligent” as George W. Bush does…   If you had to pay one cent for every grammatical error in your comment, you would be broke.

In case you’re interested, this comment was posted at 7:10 am on December 20…

Idiotic newspaper writers and editors

Prosecutors recently blew an informant’s cover by having him testify in open court, where he was recognized by the defendant and some of the spectators.

The Sacramento Bee published an article today with the headline “Sacramento trial blows the cover of an informant” that gave all the details, but published his name! If you want to talk about blowing the informant’s cover, the Bee is the primary culprit. There were probably under a hundred people who knew his name before this article was published, but since it is now on the Internet, there could be tens of thousands of people who know his name (though 99% of those people are not likely to care.) The headline should be changed to “Sacramento Bee blows the cover of an informant.”

While the paper has the right to publish this information, they need to consider the effect that this will have on his life. It is likely that other gangs will try to have him eliminated (even though he is being relocated.) They should not be publishing information that can put someone’s life in jeopardy unless it is crucial for the public to know, which is certainly not the case here.  This newspaper ironically has the problem that they do not give vital information (the race of the suspect) in crime cases unless it is a Caucasian.
