OMG. Woman orders a burger, takes a bite and finds a half smoked joint inside.
ATLANTA (AP) — A Wendy's employee who dropped a partially smoked blunt in a customer's cheeseburger has been fired and charged with marijuana possession.
Police in the city of Lovejoy, Ga., about 25 miles south of downtown Atlanta, said a customer drove home with her food on Nov. 1, took a bite out of the burger and noticed a strange smell wafting from it.
The woman pulled the bun off and saw a partially smoked blunt inside, police said. A blunt is marijuana rolled into a hollowed-out cigar.
The woman called the restaurant's manager and met there with police soon afterward.
In an incident report, authorities said 32-year-old Amy Elizabeth Seiber admitted that the marijuana belonged to her as soon as she saw police standing in the restaurant with her manager.
Seiber told Officer Randall Rowland that it wouldn't make any sense to lie about the marijuana, since she and the restaurant's manager were the only ones working when the customer placed her drive-thru order, Rowland wrote in the report.
Seiber apologized, saying she had misplaced the marijuana, Rowland wrote. Wendy's officials said they're deeply sorry.
"Obviously the employee broke the rules and did not follow proper food handling steps," said Wendy's spokesman Denny Lynch. He added that the corporation contacted the restaurant's owner and officials were told that she had been fired.
'You've gotta win the senate. You've gotta win races. We've got a math problem' RNC Chair Reince Priebus says. However, Harry Reid opened the door with the nuclear option and that will come back to haunt him. "What essentially he did is say to the Republican party, with 51 votes- if you win he senate, you can undo Obamacare"
"Personally, I think we ought to" Priebus tells Sean Hannity. Reince also rips Obama saying, 'I think the president lied to the American people' and is guilty of 'gross negligence'
While you probably work with that guy who just can’t wait to start blasting Christmas music right after Halloween, many radio stations switch to an all-holiday format right after Thanksgiving. And despite the inevitable Grinches, that trend isn’t going to change as it’s paying off for radio stations.
Whether you love Mariah Carey or not, there are plenty of Americans ready to get their holiday on as soon as possible, reports Nielsen.
Radio stations that switch to the All Christmas, All The Time format near Thanksgiving in 2012 saw a 71% midday surge in listeners compared to their average ratings.
At night when it’s time to get extra jolly, ratings more than doubled, points out Nielsen: “During the course of the holiday ratings season, nights saw a 129 percent lift and — hold onto your eggnog — a 582 percent lift on Christmas Eve.”
That’s compared ton an average nighttime average, when the number of listeners tuning into normal radio stations in any 15-minute period was about 291,700.
The whole thing peaks on Christmas Eve, naturally, with 28.4 million Americans tuning in to an All Christmas format station last year in the top 48 markets.
What are we listening to the most? According to the report, ranging from the most-played new release of “Let It Snow” by Rod Stewart to that treasured favorite, “White Christmas” by Bing Crosby.
Not just Biden.
O says Hillary will also go down as one of the best Sec. of States we've ever had.
Here he is being interviewed by Chris Matthews, which is really no different than being interviewed by Jay Carney.
Video from tonight's MSNBC Softball
President Obama said Vice President Joe Biden would go down in history as one of the best since he’d been “at my side in every tough decision that I’ve made” during an interview with MSNBC host Chris Matthews.
“I think Joe Biden will go down in history as one of the best vice-presidents ever,” he said. “He has been with me, at my side in every tough decision that I’ve made from going after bin Laden to dealing with the health care issues. You name it, he’s been there.”
Despite accusations swirling around him on his own turf, Toronto Mayor Rob Ford waded into U.S. politics, denouncing President Obama’s health care law on U.S. sports radio this morning.
Ford, who says he would be a Republican if he were in the states, said the Affordable Care Act is just too expensive, despite the fact that Canada prides itself in a government-run universal health care system.
“As a person, I like President Obama. I don’t like his policies,” Ford told “The Sports Junkies,” hosts on the station 106.7 The Fan. “I don’t believe in all this public funded health care because you’ve got to pay for it.”
Ford was concerned that expanding health care through the Affordable Care Act would be funded at the expense of the taxpayers. “It’s going to cost a fortune for you guys to implement this Obamacare,” said Ford. “I don’t see how the people are going to be able to afford it, to tell you the truth.”
Despite the continued fodder that Ford gives to the press as a result of his questionable actions, he said he “absolutely” has the support of the people and is confident that he will be re-elected in October to another four-year term as mayor.
(CNN) -- Nelson Mandela, the revered statesman who emerged from prison after 27 years to lead South Africa out of decades of apartheid, has died, South African President Jacob Zuma announced late Thursday. He was 95.
The former president battled health issues in recent months, including a recurring lung infection that led to numerous hospitalizations.
With advancing age and bouts of illness, Mandela retreated to a quiet life at his boyhood home in the nation's Eastern Cape Province, where he said he was most at peace.
Despite rare public appearances, he held a special place in the nation's consciousness.
The White House had previously said after Omar Obama's arrest, that the president had never met his uncle, who comes from his father's side of the family.
Press Sec. Jay Carney was pressed today by Ed Henry- Oh, yeah, yeah Ed...They actually have met, he lived with Omar when he was in college.
The White House acknowledged Thursday that President Obama lived with his uncle for a brief period in the 1980s while he was a student at Harvard Law School -- after previously saying the two had never met.
"The president did stay with him for a brief period of time until his apartment was ready," White House spokesman Eric Schultz said in a statement. "After that, they saw each other once every few months, but after law school they fell out of touch.
The president has not seen him in 20 years, has not spoken with him in 10. "
Onyango "Omar" Obama faced a deportation hearing earlier this week following a drunk-driving arrest.
During the hearing, he said that the president had lived with him while he was a student at Harvard.
According to the Boston Globe, the White House had previously said, after Omar Obama's arrest, that the president had never met his uncle, who comes from his father's side of the family and is a Kenyan national. Obama was not close to his father, who left the family when the president was very young.
The White House's latest comment was first reported by the Globe.
What did Democrat Sen. Mark Pryor say about the bible when he wasn't in a tight political race?
Mark Pryor campaign ad yesterday: "The Bible teaches us no one has all the answers. Only God does. This is my compass (the bible). I believe in his word"
Mark Pryor 2012: "The Bible is not a rule book for political issues"..."Everybody can see it differently"
Here is a KATV Arkansas Report describing the ad: "Sen. Mark Pryor is out with a new ad offering a Biblical solution to the already heated 2014 Senate race in Arkansas. Pryor's campaign said the ad will begin airing on Wednesday. In the 30 second ad, Pryor speaks directly to the camera about his faith in the Bible. The ad is a substantial purchase for the campaign and will run statewide. "I'm not ashamed to say that I believe in God, and I believe in His word. The Bible teaches us no one has all the answers. Only God does. And neither political party is always right," Pryor says in the ad. "This is my compass. My North Star. It gives me comfort and guidance to do what's best for Arkansas."
Interesting ad, considering the same Mark Pryor was quoted below just last year cautioning that the Bible is "not a rule book for political issues."
Arkansas' Sen. Mark Pryor, a Protestant Christian who was co-chairman of the National Prayer Breakfast in February, said the intersection of faith and politics can be difficult to navigate…‘The Bible is really not a rule book for political issues,’ he said. ‘Everybody can see it differently. - Alex Daniels, “Republican Budget Facing Catholic Criticism,” (Arkansas Democrat-Gazette, 4/29/12)
So is the Bible Mark Pryor's compass, providing the "comfort and guidance to do what's best for Arkansas? " Or is it really not a good rule book for political issues and decisions made in the Senate? Guess it depends on which Mark Pryor that you ask.
You have to wonder what genius is behind this one.
Video shows students, teachers in school and a would-be gunman outside approaching the school with a duffel bag (gun inside).
At the end of the ad, the empty duffle bag is tossed and the person enters the school.
You've got to be kidding...This is supposed to commemorate the anniversary of the Sandy Hook shooting? WTH?
