I'm Calling Fraud - Until It's Confirmed



This photo was posted on a friend's social media account and while it's interesting, something screamed out fake to me. See for yourself.

I say it's fake and here's why:

1) The position of this officer's arm is not one that would facilitate a full force swing that would be required to break glass. His arm is not even fully extended and his other arm is not being utilized.

2) Glass does not go flying on a car window like that. It is a matter of safety and it's required by law that windows on vehicles meet certain standards. Side and back windows have tempered glass.

Watch for yourself what glass does when it's hit with a bat and notice too this man is using BOTH arms.

I need to note that this is the windshield and it has laminated glass but, the point of this first video is to demonstrate how the glass in the front would behave.



Here's another video of a guy using a wrench on a rear window. This would be tempered glass.



Now, notice on this video you see the guy on only one side of the window and yet the entire window is damaged from a single blow. When a window like this is hit, you will have damage at the point of impact and you will see damage all around that point because entire window is absorbing the shock of the impact. Most large impacts will just leave the entire window collapsing.

Here's another video showing a guy using a small bat about the same size as what the officer in the picture has:



He's using this on a side window, which also has tempered glass and the window sustained no breaking whatsoever. The bat actually received the worst damage by splitting in two. Also take note of how he was holding the bat. It looks nothing similar to how the officer is standing.

3) There are three different types of camouflage that the officers are wearing, Now couple this with two different types of batons being used and again, it's not a complete giveaway but, surly it does look a bit weird. Especially when you consider the other problems with this photo.

I am told this comes from a video but have yet to see the link for the video. I am unable to confirm if this is real or not but, so far I am not impressed.

I am a huge skeptic of these memes that float around on the internet since the majority of them always end up being misleading or false. Propaganda indeed!

If you have any information on confirming this image, comment below! Until I can get some proof I'm calling fake. What are your thoughts?

A Look Back - William F. Buckley vs. Hugh Hefner

A debate in 1966 between Buckley and Hefner discussing the "Playboy philosophy" turns out to be quite intriguing.



Buckley does his best toward the end of the interview by pointing out the seemingly contradictory way in which Hefner instructs his bunnies to refrain from sexual relations with patrons and what Hefner advocates in general as it pertains to sexuality or sexual behavior.

What are your thoughts as you watch this debate and compare with the current world we live in? How much has changed? What do you feel has been positive vs. negative?

Baltimore Mother Disciplines Son For Participating in Riots



I want to know more... is she really doing the right thing here? I don't know. Did her son think violence was okay because he gets beat at home normally or did he turn to riot because he is a follower? Did this woman not discipline her son enough? Why or why not? Where is the father? Why are so many young men lacking wisdom to know these types of actions are destructive, not just for their own lives but for the lives of their community? How do we repair this? How do we break this mentality? There seem to be no simple answers.

How do we teach people or compel them to become involved in their communities rather then resort to violence and rioting?

Our nation doesn't just have a race relations problem, we have a problem between the general population and police. How do we go about changing these relations?

Baltimore is a unique city. It is blacks who make up the majority so the idea that this is strictly about race does not hold water with me. I lived there.



The woman was identified as Toya Graham. She explains that she did what she did because she did not want him to be a Freddie Gray.

Congratulations to Bruce Jenner for Coming Out As a Conservative!

In the much anticipated interview of Bruce Jenner by Diane Sawyer, Bruce bravely admitted to being a conservative Republican! [Gasp!] This was extremely brave to do and I fully support and congratulate him!

He also mentioned something about turning into a women.



I wasn't planning on watching this interview but, when I noticed it was about to come on while surfing the channels I decided - why not? I have actually always liked Bruce Jenner. Out of the Kardashian-clan Bruce was the one to be admired and most respected. After all, he's the 1976 Olympic decathlon gold medal winner and they are - well, they are ... they are Kardashians. 

I'm actually glad I did. As always, Bruce was a class-act who explained he was interested in just being himself.

While the show itself tried desperately to make him look like a victim of some sort, Bruce told the audience, that if this was the only problem he has then he's doing quite well and I completely agree.

This was a great interview. Bruce is truly a likable guy - errr... women. She is required to live a year as a female. Then Bruce will decide if s/he wants to have reassignment surgery. Bruce did not reveal if he was a woman who wanted to be with a man or a women who wanted to be with another women. It seems he has merely felt like a women inside for a very long time.

Book Review - Surviving Puberty Erecting Your Future and Making the Breast Decisions

Surviving Puberty – Erecting Your Future and Making the Breast Decisions by Chad Bishoff is a book that asks the question, “Does puberty really end?”

Chad introduces himself as a young man who grew up in Omaha, NE from a middle-class home and a Catholic upbringing.

There is something that goes on during the ages of puberty that our minds do not quite understand. Even as adults it’s hard to really grasp all these changes and explain all the “why’s” concerning our thoughts, our actions, and even our behaviors. Chad Bishoff’s book is one-of-a-kind since he actually reverts back in time by prying open his most treasured journals during his pubescent years.  A brave and bold move indeed and does not disappoint its reader.

The book goes back and forth between Chad’s perspective as a young man in his late 20’s and actual journal entries from his past. This juxtaposition allows the reader to learn more about who Chad is as an individual and also as any other man or boy in the world. Chad assured us that the names have been changed to protect the guilty.

It’s hard not to think back on your own childhood as you read through the passages of his journal. Many references to pop culture’s past will find you trying to remember where you were when “this” movie was released or when “that” song was playing on top-40 radio.

The book is certainly not intended for children but rather for adults who either share these types of experiences like other men or, for mothers who have a son or a growing young man in their lives. In fact a mother may gain a new perspective into what types of thoughts her son is experiencing and may even discover that those thoughts are not much different when compared to her own formative years.

The most obvious topic that permeates the pages of this book is sex. As one can anticipate the desire to gain a girlfriend and engage in sexual activities is a dominate theme inside the cranium of a pubescent boy. Chad reveals his sensitive side as well, expressing a yearning for a serious, committed relationship.

Another theme that came to my mind while reading this book comes from the story of  Sisyphus, from Greek mythology about the man who would push a boulder up a large hill only to find when he reached the top it would fall back down again. Chad's book reminds us to remember that we are always learning and always wanting more . There is a value in being able to look back at your life and having a greater understanding of your experiences.

PROS: The book provides insight and humor into the life of a young man who shares all the dirty details of his young-self growing up. It's interesting, not boring; it's a very quick read and keeps you entertained. There are a few parts that might make you feel embarrassed or even cringe but, this can be considered a pro rather than a con. A good book elicits emotion.

CONS: It was a quick read and I found myself wanting more.

To order your copy, click here and you can pre-order this book. It will be released in honor of National Honesty Day, April 30th.
