Intolerance Of Free Speech Raises It’s Ugly Head. Again.

Western Illinois University is a public university in Macomb, Illinois. Founded in 1899 as Western Illinois State Normal School, as the normal school grew, it became Western Illinois State Teachers College and eventually Western Illinois University.

Recently, some students decided to have a voter registration drive.

Sounds good to us. The more people that vote, the better.

However, other students, faculty and employees of the the university decided that the drive would not be allowed and blocked access to the event.

The reason?

The registration drive was put on by Students for Trump.

Why We Can’t Have Nice Things.

Bradley D. Young

Bradley D. Young is a 37 year old man who has a felony conviction in Ohio.

After serving his time and doing rehab for drug addiction, Young took up residence in his native home of Collier County, Florida.

Instead of trying to stay out of jail, Young made the choice to steal from WalMart using a rather ingenious method.

A store loss prevention officer watched Young scan merchandise with a Kool-Aid pack concealed in his hand so the items rang up 24 cents. Young rang up three Kool-Aid packets and some other small items totaling $24.44 for $994.13 worth of merchandise.

Now “Getting A Rock” For Halloween Will Cost You Before Halloween.

We all remember the line from the Halloween classic It’s The Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown of “I got a rock.”

There are so many good lines from the 1966 Emmy nominated show that it is hard to think that it wouldn’t be on broadcast TV forever. It was almost a ritual, you know. Grab some popcorn, some candy, the kids and watch the show.

Linus: Each year, the Great Pumpkin rises out of the pumpkin patch that he thinks is the most sincere. He’s gotta pick this one. He’s got to. I don’t see how a pumpkin patch can be more sincere than this one. You can look around and there’s not a sign of hypocrisy. Nothing but sincerity as far as the eye can see.

Alas, no more.

It’s The Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown will now be streamed on Apple TV+:

Not Dead Woman Dies.

Back in August of 2020, we wrote about a woman that was pronounced dead at her home, only to have the funeral home discover that she was still alive.

The family of 20 year old Timesha Beauchamp has announced she has passed away.

“This is the second time our beloved Timesha has been pronounced dead, but this time she isn’t coming back,” the family said.

Beauchamp had cerebral palsy.

The family has filed a $50 million federal lawsuit against the city of Southfield and the four first responders who attended to Beauchamp.

Disney Has Problems. Decides To Make Things Worse.

These are rough times for the Mouse’s House:

Disneyland May Be Facing A $2 Billion Loss Due To COVID-19

It’s been a tough year for The Walt Disney Company. Theaters are empty, blockbusters are delayed, merchandise sales are way down and visiting a theme park is a potential death sentence. Throughout 2020, they’ve tried to figure out ways to mitigate the effects of COVID-19, reopening some of their parks with closed rides, social distancing in place and antiviral measures. It didn’t go so well, though, with the ensuing promotional videos widely dubbed as creepy and the company being condemned as irresponsible.

Now, financial analyst Michael Nathanson, founding member of firm MoffetNathanson, has projected the cost of COVID-19 closing the Disneyland resort. In mid-March, the entire complex shut down, though various wings of the park like the Downtown Disney shopping mall have since reopened. Still, the shutdown adds up to an eye-watering $2.2 billion loss for Disney in 2020, which will have devastating consequences for the employees.

In September, the House of Mouse announced that they’re laying off 28,000 workers from their parks divisions, resulting in Abigail Disney (granddaughter of company co-founder Roy Disney) commenting that:

Joe Knows Pandemics.

One of the things the Democrats – including Joe Biden – have been trying to hit Trump over is the reaction to the COVID-19 pandemic.

“The President doesn’t have a plan,” they say. Or “the President telling people to stay calm is ridiculous.”

People forget that the Obama administration with “I Have A Plan” Biden, faced their own pandemic in 2009: the H1N1 pandemic.
