OUCH- not meant to be funny - Painter pinned after minivan crashes into Krispy Kreme

Painter pinned after van crashes into Krispy Kreme


HENRICO COUNTY, Va (WTVR) – Two painting contractors have been injured after a minivan crashed into the Krispy Kreme Donut Shop where they were working.

One painter was pinned between the building and the car. Both painters were taken to VCU Medical Center. Police tell our Tracy Sears that the minivan was traveling eastbound on West Broad Street when it turned left, went across the sidewalk and the grass and into the building. The driver of the minivan has also been taken to the hospital.

No word on the extent of their injuries.

Krispy Kreme’s PR Manager Lafeea Wilson sent us this email just moments ago: “Due to the vehicular accident that occurred this morning at the Krispy Kreme in Richmond, VA, Krispy Kreme is delaying all re-opening activities planned this week at that location. Krispy Kreme will notify its fans of updates via Krispy Kreme on Facebook and email newsletters.”

Kiss’ Gene Simmons Supporting Mitt Romney for President

Source: classichitsandoldies.com

Kiss singer/bassist Gene Simmons appeared on the Fox News Channel’s conservative talk show Fox & Friends on Tuesday morning to wag his tongue about the upcoming presidential election. The outspoken rocker, who voted for Barack Obama in 2008, declared that he hopes Republican candidate Mitt Romney wins this year.

“Americans, smartly, and I applaud them for doing so, vote on the issues and not the party,” he explained about his apparent change of allegiances.

“Hindsight is 20/20,” he continued. “I have some real issues with the economy and how it’s being done. America should be in business and it should be run by businessmen. That’s my philosophy.”

“America is a business,” he maintained. “If you can’t afford to do something, no matter how much bellyaching everybody does…you shouldn’t do it.”

Delusional (Michelle) Duggar says whole world can fit in Jacksonville


We've heard of New Math" but Michelle Duggar might have to show us her work on this one. The perpetually pregnant TLC mom, who has 19 kids under her (non-chastity) belt so far, told the Christian Broadcasting Network that the pesky rumor of the world being overpopulated is not accurate and that -- stay with us here -- if we all stood "shoulder to shoulder," we could fit the entire planet of 7 billion-plus people in Jacksonville, Fla. ... Duggar continued that she agrees with Mother Teresa, who once commented that saying there are too many children "is like saying there are too many flowers."


Michelle Duggar doesn't believe the world is overpopulated. She's trying to fix that though.

(Alabama) Club promotes 'Food Stamp Friday' event

Fliers for "Food Stamp Friday" at a local nightclub in Montgomery, Ala., are causing a buzz around town. According to postcards for the event, you can show your Electronic Benefits Transfer card at the door for a discounted $5 cover charge and free shots inside. ...While Montgomery residents are left to wonder if it's mocking others' misfortune or a misplaced attempt to glamorize federal assistance, we can't imagine a better way to screen opportunistic gold diggers out of your club scene. <---msn's words

I have been invited to the local paper's Correspondent of the Year ceremony

I just got letter yesterday. I knew that they used to have this deal but since I hadn't heard anything I thought they had ended it.

I have no idea what the winner gets but it is nice to be recognized.

Here is the edited Op-Ed as it originally appeared.


*smurky little smart a$$es* instead of Earth Hour tonight RW offers "Human Achievement Hour"

Let there be light: 'Human Achievement Hour' to coincide with Earth Hour

As millions of people sit in the dark during Earth Hour to call for action against climate change this weekend, a libertarian think tank wants you to fight the power by keeping the lights on.

The Competitive Enterprise Institute plans to commemorate Earth Hour 2012 with its "Human Achievement Hour," 60 minutes to gather with friends in a heated home, watch television and surf the Internet instead of dimming or shutting off the lights altogether to draw attention to climate change.

"HAH is an annual event meant to recognize and celebrate the fact that this is the greatest time to be alive, and that the reason we have come is that people have been free to use their minds and the resources in their environment to experiment, create, and innovate," reads a CEI website on the event scheduled to coincide with Earth Hour 2012 from 8:30 to 9:30 p.m. local time Saturday.

Participants in the event understand the "necessity to protect the individual persons from government coercion," according to the Washington-based think tank.

Karl Rove on Obama's open mic -wow you are a genius Karl

This won’t all happen by itself. To make the most of Mr. Obama’s statement, Republicans will need to raise it again and again in speeches, ads, videos and debates. After all, Mr. Kerry’s March 2004 remark became an issue only when repeated endlessly in ads and on the stump by the GOP’s surrogates. Then and only then did it become the “a-ha!” moment that shaped perceptions of the Democratic nominee and helped bring about his defeat.

Karl- that is why you have Fox News, talk radio, CNN....etc.

What's telling is that I don't see any wrong with what was actually said

President Obama: “On all these issues, but particularly missile defense, this, this can be solved but it’s important for him to give me space.”

President Medvedev: “Yeah, I understand. I understand your message about space. Space for you…”

President Obama: “This is my last election. After my election I have more flexibility.”

President Medvedev: “I understand. I will transmit this information to Vladimir.”
