For Halloween, no candy, just
a letter telling them they´re fat

Los Angeles Times (CA), by Amy Hubbard

Posted By:Scottyboy, 10/30/2013 11:40:41 AM

In case you missed it, a Fargo, N.D., woman called a local radio station Tuesday and said she was going to hand out letters to overweight children on Halloween instead of candy. In the letter -- which was sent to station Y-94 -- the anonymous woman tells parents that the child is "moderately obese" and shouldn´t be out gathering free candy "to the extent of some children." Fargo news outlet Valley Live News quotes a professor of clinical psychology in saying the letter could topple some kids over the edge and straight into an eating disorder: If the child is

Lady, just lock your door and turn off your lights. Let the kids have fun, & not have to contend with your PC opinion. Why did you call the radio station, to make sure everyone would know what a jerk you are?

Parents should tell their kids that if they are handed one of these letters they should tell the woman "I may be fat but you´re stupid and I can go on a diet."

We should send some Austin yoots to call on her. That should make for an interesting exchange.

If I were a kid at her door and received one of her notes I would tell her, "I might be obese but tomorrow when you wake up you will still be ugly".
Go as a trick or treating policeman and mace her ugly face.

"The Fat and the Furious"....

It could feature leading actors named...
ohhh...
Chris Christie...
and...
maybe Sean Penn...
he´d punch out the villain, no doubt...
and his ex-wife Mad Donna...
looks like a witch.

So, if Chris Christie shows up at this woman´s door... ?

So go to the dollar store and buy cheap toys instead of candy, you mean spirited party pooper.

I collect rubber ducks. Many come in packs of 1, 3 each of 4 different designs. I add 4 to the collect and put the other 8 aside to hand out on Halloween. Who doesn´t smile when they see a rubber ducky?

I´m such a cheapskate that I collect those free stick-ons that I get in junk mail through-out the year. I keep those in one bowl & Tootsie Pops in another. Usually the kids would rather have stick-ons, so any candy left over goes in with the Christmas stocking stuffers. Oh yeah, I´m cheep cheep cheep!

Our local radio station had this on this morning. Apparently this loon´s also sent the letter to the Fargo media.

Just wondering how much toliet paper, how many bars of soap, how much dog poop in burnt bags and how many thrown eggs with this witch be cleaning up on Friday.

P.S In my book, she fully deserves our derision and scorn.

I don´t like Halloween and truly thankful they have a big event downtown where kids can get all of the candy they want. If you are 6ft. tall, you have no business knocking on doors or asking for money.

It was a busy Saturday afternoon at Penn Square and this was happening up on the second floor in front of a growing crowd.

Almost immediately people start getting out their cell phones and capturing the shirtless showdown including the person who captured this video you´re watching. The man who shot this cell phone video walked out of Dillards and immediately saw a nearly naked brawl between a topless woman and a mall security guard. Witnesses say the security officer called

An autopsy on Peaches Geldof was inconclusive and toxicology tests will be conducted in an attempt to determine what killed the 25-year-old celebrity, police said Wednesday. Geldof was pronounced dead by paramedics at her home in southeast England on Monday. Kent Police said a post-mortem examination had not revealed the cause and a toxicology report could take several weeks. Geldof, the daughter of Irish musician Bob Geldof and the late TV presenter Paula Yates, had worked as a model, writer and television show host. She grew up in the glare of Britain´s press, which reveled in the late-night antics of her teenage years, and

Why President Obama

The President is no economic illiterate, despite what conservatives think. He understands basic macroeconomics just fine, thank you – but with a twist. Mainstream Democrats worship at the altar of the New Deal. It’s an article of faith that massive government spending pulled America out of the Great Depression. (With all respect to Paul Krugman, the truth is more complicated, but that’s not within the scope of this article.)The president’s view of spending, deficits and debt is not merely Keynesian theory run amok. Its origins and objectives are far more terrifying. Where the traditional Democratic playbook for economic downturns was provided

WASHINGTON — About the only thing former President Ronald Reagan doesn´t have named after him is a mountain, not one recognized by the federal government anyway.(snip)Rep. Jared Huffman, D-Calif., said he thought DeFazio´s amendment was "terrific" but wanted to take it a step further and name the planet after Reagan. "We may want to consider going big with this Reagan-naming enthusiasm," Huffman said. "I´m beginning to see some possibilities in this." Huffman said his reasoning was that if the planet were named after Reagan, then Republicans might be more concerned with taking up legislation dealing with global warming.

Poll: 62 Percent Of Americans Believe
GOP Will Repeal Obamacare

A majority of Americans believe that President Barack Obama’s signature health care law will be repealed. A new Rasmussen Reports poll found that 62 percent of likely voters believe that Republicans will repeal Obamacare, which recently marked its fourth anniversary. Only 23 percent of those polled believe that the health care law has been a success, compared to 46 percent who describe the law as a failure. Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal, a potential 2016 presidential candidate, offered a Republican alternative to Obama’s health care overhaul last week, saying states should play a greater role in containing health care costs while

A hereditary peer has questioned whether flatulence caused by the country’s high consumption of baked beans is adding to global warming. Viscount Simon, 73, a Labour peer who has been a member of the House of Lords for more than 20 years, raised concerns about the “smelly emissions”. His comments came as energy minister Baroness Verma answered questions in the Upper House on how the Government was tackling climate change.(snip)Lady Verma described his question as “so different”. But she added: “You do actually raise a very important point, which is we do need to moderate our behaviour.”

The gathering, called "National Rally for Justice for Alfred Wright" was held at the Texas Rangers office in Jasper on Highway 190 West. The rally was the second held since Wright disappeared November 7, 2013. Participants in the protest demanded entry into the Department of Public Safety building. They said they wanted to see Ranger Danny Young whose involvement in the investigation has been under question by the Wright family. Trooper Young was not at the building.

A few weeks ago, the liberal comedian Bill Maher and conservative strategist and pundit Bill Kristol had a brief spat on Maher’s HBO show, putatively over what instigated the tea party but ultimately over the psychic wound that has divided red America and blue America in the Obama years.

A caveat right off the bat: RAND’s estimate only runs through March 28 whereas the actual deadline for signing up was March 31st. Given the crush of traffic on Healthcare.gov in late March, many more people could have signed up over those last three days than were captured by these numbers. On the other hand, the White House was claiming six million sign-ups as of March 27. There’s no way to reconcile that with RAND’s data. One of them is wrong. Maybe both, in fact. There’s a big spike in Medicaid, just as everyone expected. There’s a less big but

How does the Republican Party establishment choose its presidential candidate? Typically, constitutionalists accuse their establishment rivals of being moderate, risk-averse, stubborn old fools who lack faith in conservative principles. This is a soothing interpretation, as it begins from the hypothesis that the contest between conservatives and the GOP elite is a family feud. But there is another hypothesis -- less soothing, but, at least from an outsider´s bird´s-eye view, more reconcilable with the facts. This hypothesis is that America has reached a stage of progressive soft despotism in which the only important family feud in national politics is between the fundamentally

As the House prepares for several key votes on former Internal Revenue Service employee Lois G. Lerner and potential legal action, analysts say she and her attorney have mishandled their case by picking and choosing when they want to talk, and to whom they are willing to talk. Ms. Lerner faces a vote in the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee on Thursday that could begin the process of accusing her of contempt of Congress. The Ways and Means Committee announced that it will hold a vote Wednesday on whether to officially accuse Ms. Lerner of breaking the law by

My first published column was in a local paper opposing the Equal Rights Amendment for the same reasons that Phyllis Schlafly, a conservative lawyer, campaigned on. As ambiguously written, the ERA, would eliminate the men-only draft requirement, repeal protective laws like sexual assault and eliminate the tendency for mothers to obtain custody over their children in divorce cases. Ironically, one of the arguments that helped sink the amendment from ratification was the fear that single-sex bathrooms would no longer be permitted. In addition, opponents of the amendment also warned that it would lead to abortion on demand and same-sex marriages.

More than a hundred Republican Party elders gathered this weekend in Texas to celebrate George H.W. Bush’s legacy. But many of the event’s participants had another, much simpler agenda: launching a Jeb Bush presidential campaign. The two-day festivities featured a widely covered speech by Jeb. And on the sidelines, former Bush retainers were frank about their hopes that the eldest son could save a party the family has led on and off since 1988. “We have a responsibility to make sure Jeb runs,” said longtime Bush adviser Andy Card after the speech. “If Jeb Bush does not run, shame on us.” Card added,
