Cat-astrophic Lawsuit.

(this is not the cat from the story, in case you were wondering)

Lacie is a cat who was owned by a Syracuse woman named Carol Money.

Lacie liked to sleep in the bed with Money but when Money was having medical issues due to cancer, she put Lacie up for adoption. It seems that due to the cancer treatments and associated medical issues, Lacie was not able to sleep in the bed with Money who put the cat outside of the bedroom door.

Lacie was not happy with that arrangement and proceeded to meow, whine and cry.

This broke Money’s heart so she put Lacie up for adoption. Money claims that sleeping in the bed with her owner is important for Lacie’s “mental health.”

“Red Flag” Laws: Theory Vs. Practice.

Back in October, we wrote about a school crossing guard in Martha’s Vineyard who had his weapons wrongfully seized by the police after they had gotten an order from a judge. The crossing guard was not advised of the hearing so he could attend, make a statement or offer any rebuttal to that which he was being accused.

When it was discovered that the weapons were wrongfully seized, no one even apologized to the man. In fact, the police chief was applauded for his quick action in taking the veteran’s weapons.

There for the grace of God goes everyone who has a weapon.

God’s grace did not extend to South Florida resident Jon Carpenter.

Carpenter was sent a letter from the State of Florida demanding he surrender his firearm’s license and surrender his firearms.

One problem: the “Jon Carpenter” the state filed against was not the Jon Carpenter who had his weapons confiscated and his license suspended.

Jon is a veteran, sports fisherman, and law-abiding gun owner from St. Cloud, who just happens to have the same name as a drifter who threatened an elderly couple.

From Darkness To Light.

We love these things.

Turn off the lights. Go full screen. Crank up the volume and marvel.

From Darkness To Light is an 8k Time-Lapse film shot by storm chaser Ty Schmitt. All the clips in the film were captured on the Great Plains during the 2019 spring storm season. Ty traveled over 30,000 miles in 3 months chasing Mother Nature’s most intense moments.

(We appreciate the beauty, but if Ty wants intense moments, come sit through a hurricane, dude.)

The 3 R’s Now Include “Social Justice” – In Pre-K.

Kids are funny. For some reason in a world where so called adults seem to want to judge everyone by race and gender, kids don’t. At a young age such as pre-K and kindergarten, kids see each other simply as playmates. That’s the way it should be in our opinion. Let kids be kids.

Of course, if you are a “social justice warrior” in New York who happens to teach in a state funded pre-k school you can’t allow that to happen.

What are they teaching in New York City preschools? At one taxpayer-funded Brooklyn nursery, it isn’t numbers, letters or nap time — but ­racism and victimhood, plus transgender and “queer’’ rights, with a heavy dose of political indoctrination in the mix.

“I was kind of horrified,’’ the father of a preschooler told me. “They say they’re trying to reduce racism and discrimination. To me, they’re perpetuating it, fomenting a sense of victimhood that 4-year-olds would never consider on their own.’’


Wonder if she can vote?

The Denninghoff Memo.

There has been an ongoing conflict between the City of Palm Bay and Brevard County concerning the “exchange to nowhere” and the connecting roads.

During the last City Council meeting on February 6, Palm Bay Councilmen ripped into the County on a variety of issues.

However, a week before that, on January 29, Brevard County Assistant Manager and head of the Development and Environmental Services Group, had sent an email to the City of Palm Bay and specifically to Deputy City Manager Suzanne Sherman as to the state of the negotiations between the City and the County.

The email was referenced at last Tuesday’s County Commission meeting in a discussion concerning the negotiations with Palm Bay on the proposed inter-local agreement. (ILA)

What caught our ear was the fact that the email implies the negotiations were a “sham” when viewed from the point of view of the County.

We decided to ask for the email which is found below.

Our Controversial Valentine’s Day Stance.

EDITOR’S NOTE: Today is Valentine’s Day.

Each year we trot out a post similar to this and each year, we get slammed for it. So be it.

Today is the day.

The worst holiday known to mankind is here: Valentine’s Day.

It is not that we think the idea of love and romance is a bad thing. We are all for it. (Nice to know, eh?)

And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love. 1 Corinthians 13:13 (NIV)

But here’s the thing. Here is why we hate Valentine’s Day so much.

Palm Bay: We Don’t Need To Elect Officials Who Believe Laws Don’t Matter.

Janice Crisp is running for Palm Bay City Council Seat 2.

We have run across Crisp before who has some strange ideas when it comes to the press and bloggers. For example, she claims that the press must be licensed by the state.

That’s obviously not true, and so we try and stay away from people with ideas like that. To think that they are seeking public office where they can write and and vote on laws without basic understanding of legal principles is frightening to us.

On Tuesday, Crisp spoke in front of the Brevard County Commission. Normally we wouldn’t say anything, but her comments are bizarre.

We took the time to transcribe them.

I’m from Palm Bay and I’m running for City Council. What I would like to speak with you guys about is the process in which people are able to request public records. I know that there’s been an increase in what you have to pay but what I’m here to talk about is how the process and how people are identified – are we letting real people or just people who make internet requests.
