Bernard S. Cockerham, Jr., Webmaster  Title: Angry...

Author: Bernard S. Cockerham, Jr., Webmaster
05.OCT.2016
I am quite angry. I shopped at the Boone, Iowa Walmart, store 01389, picked up 18 items. When I checked out, I used Walmart Pay. It connected. There was an error in processing. The cashier said she needed alternate payment. I used the same card that is registered in Walmart Pay. It went through. The cashier gave me my printed receipt and I left. I for a 1/4 mile away, then I got an e-receipt from Walmart Pay. I checked my checking account and found two charges for the same amount ($66.19 on debit and $66.19 on Walmart Pay). I returned to the store. The customer service representative asured me that it would clear up by Monday, without clearly hearing the situation. Certainly, if it clears up and I'm reimbursed $66.19, I'll gladly apologize for my anger. I've used Walmart Pay previously, with no problem. I hope this does resolve.

From OpposingViews: 'I Didn't Really Understand': Parents Upset After Ohio School Suspends 6-Year-Old Over Power Rangers Recess Game

An Ohio first grader has reportedly been disciplined for pretending to shoot a classmate with an imaginary bow and arrow.

My response: Okay... The kid wasn't armed, but had arms, had nothing in hand, but had hands, and shot an imaginary arrow (I don't know anyone that shoots bows) with an imaginary bow. ??? Is having an imagination illegal? Oh, I bet the school wanted the imaginary bow and arrow to be registered. I can see the announcement, "Boys and girls, if you have imaginary weapons, please leave them and your imagination at home. Also, shut your brains off while on campus. There is an over-abundance of imaginative people in the world."

Author: Bernard S. Cockerham, Jr., Webmaster
03.NOV.2015
From KCCI: Intoxicated woman who tried petting a tiger and got injured.

A reader's response: I think the zoo should file a lawsuit in behalf of the Tiger, for trespassing, harassment, and assault.

My response to that: And, contributing to the delinquency of a tiger... She was intoxicated, so the fingers had to be well marinated. Could have arson on the table - depending on what she drank, the fingers could've been combustible.

And, my response to the article: No more ladyfingers for the kitty kitty... Tiger will have to settle for Meow Mix or Frosted Flakes...
Bernard S. Cockerham, Jr., Webmaster  Title: Donald Trump just unveiled a major plan to reform the VA

Author: Bernard S. Cockerham, Jr., Webmaster
03.NOV.2015
From America News: Donald Trump promised a crowd of supporters at a Norfolk, Virginia, rally that he would reform the "corrupt" and "incompetent" Department of Veterans' Affairs.

Do you think his proposals have what it takes to help America's veterans?

My response: REALLY? Flashback Tuesday! Let's set the stage... John McCain was a service member, is a veteran, served in Vietnam, was captured (POW). ( Google trump+mccain+war+hero ) Trump didn't recognize him as a war hero, because he was captured. What service did Trump serve in? Apparently, everyone is listening to the here and now, and not remembering what was said, just 4 months ago. As a veteran, myself, Trump's statements cannot be forgotten - Every year, every Memorial Day, we honor POWs (ding ding), those that sacrificed their lives, those that sacrificed of their bodies, those that are in harm's way now. The rest of us have Veterans Day. Before jumping on the bandwagon, talk to a veteran. Anyone that has to retract statements regularly, because of statements made about Veterans, constituents and other countries, shouldn't be leading. Have to admit - he is a savvy businessman, within his organization, he can say anything; but when it comes to those who served, charging the red white and blue through the fight, there is no time to retract. A promise to a veteran has to be kept - we, they, were and are the only reasons people have the freedom to make the choices they do today.
Bernard S. Cockerham, Jr., Webmaster  Title: Customer assaults Burger King manager with chicken nuggets

Author: Bernard S. Cockerham, Jr., Webmaster
02.NOV.2015
From KCCI: An angry customer threw chicken nuggets and fries at the store manager and struck her in the head, according to a police report. The suspect exclaimed, ''You can give me my (epithet) money back ‘cause that (food) is cold.''

My response: Alrighty... Gimme my money or I'll nug you up! This story kinda goes with a recent story about a police officer who drank cleaning solution that was in an iced tea dispenser at a McDonald's. Things like this wouldn't happen if the managers and employees paid more attention to detail, quality and their customers. Many of these businesses need to go back to their foundation and learn their core values again. Just doing the minimum, pushing speed and not quality, keeping old food because it is inconvenient to cook up new OR trying to save the overall wasted food for the day (If it is old or cold, throw it the out. Something that would have happened years ago, before generations of slackers.), People will gladly pay more for quality, than to waste the gas, to drive back, because their food is cold or old or wrong. Not funny that the person could have been injured; but, the statement "The store manager wasn't injured."

Do your nugs hang low
Do they wobble to the flo
Do you throw'em in a fight
Are they stanky, Are they cold
Could you knock a brotha out
wit' a single nugget throw
Do your nugs hang low... LOL
Bernard S. Cockerham, Jr., Webmaster  Title: Indianapolis Cop Seriously Harmed After Getting Cleaning Liquid In Tea At McDonald's

Author: Bernard S. Cockerham, Jr., Webmaster
02.NOV.2015
From OpposingViews: This police officer thought he was purchasing a normal cup of tea at McDonald's. It wasn't until he began drinking that he realized someone had made a big mistake.

My response: Way back in the day, when I was a manager at McDonald's, we removed items that needed cleaning from the lobby. Included ketchup dispensers. Everything was scrubbed and washed, on the spot; never soaked. With the "modernization" of McDonald's, they are going away from the quality and focus they had. Ray Kroc and the McDonald's brothers would flip their lids on where McDonald's is now. Less attention to detail, all focused on trends and speed, less on quality and personal touches. Competitiveness in the market shouldn't mean being careless; like soaking/cleaning something (unattended) in the lobby - other things noticed: mopping without signs and cleaning tables with the same towel that was used on seats <- other things that would not have happened, regardless of the franchise, back in the day. Sounded like a cleaner that we used to clean the shake, ice cream machines, and condiment dispensers (Sanitizer - bleach like cleaner), degreaser doesn't sound logical in any part of the lobby. I hope he recovers well.

Author: Bernard S. Cockerham, Jr., Webmaster
30.OCT.2015
From HLN: Okie dokie... Let's hit a few points before getting to question and the pic. Can't shame HLN - Whether or not they released the article, pic went viral - It was viral before HLN got it. What they are simply asking is "What do you think?" The question: Absolutely not. My children are my ultimate responsibility, not yours, not my parents, not even the Dr. that delivered them; Mine. With that, the creator of the flyer (not the pic) wants the public to curb their treat traditions for the sake of their kid. Back in the day, as if it was really a long time ago, my sister and I were given instructions on Trick or Treating: 1. Watch for traffic. 2. Candy and treats from people you know into our plastic pumpkin bucket. 3. Candy from people you don't know, trash it or put it in the baggie that she gave us. 4. Stick together. 5. Be good. 6. Share. 7. No more than 10 pieces of candy before coming home (Back in the day, it didn't start until dark and could go on until 10PM - curfew). 8. All candy in the baggie has to be checked for foreign objects and tapering. 9. Never take candy, it should be given (for the possibility there are objects in the bowl that could hurt us. NOTE: There were 10 of them and can't remember the last one. That was my parents, curbing us; not our family curbing the public. I respected what my mom's rules; she got what she wanted, plus parental candy tax and I got what I wanted, which was candy. I outgrew most of my allergies; up to that point, my parents educated me on the severity of them, so I knew not to cross that line, with stuff I didn't know I was allergic to. If the parents would rather have the public cater to their child, maybe that family should supply the public with candy to hand out or they should just stay safe and stay home. If I had a sensitive suspension on my vehicle, I couldn't ask to have potholes and cracks fixed wherever I go. I have to police my own vehicle (fix the suspension) and ride bumpy like everyone else. As for the poster of the pic, they probably saw the flyer and said "What the @#$%?!?!?!!?!" Snapped the pic and off to Cha-ching-ville. Off subject, but in the article: "Spirit sticks" AHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA I will have to use that one!
Bernard S. Cockerham, Jr., Webmaster  Title: 2016 Republicans vs. the media

Author: Bernard S. Cockerham, Jr., Webmaster
29.OCT.2015
From KCCI: Republican presidential candidates tore into CNBC's moderators at Wednesday night's GOP debate, issuing the sharpest attacks on the mainstream media of the 2016 election cycle.

Sen. Ted Cruz accused the moderators of trying to instigate a cage match, Sen. Marco Rubio called the media a super PAC for Hillary Clinton, and Donald Trump slammed the "ridiculous questions."

My Response: The media doesn't care about any of the politicians, they're concerned with ratings. Politicians don't really want to hash out the issues, because they have no idea what their budget is going to be like until they enter office. Additionally, the public is so wrapped up in liberal mess, conservative mess and everything-else mess, they lose sight of the real issues, and focus on the nonsense. Everyone needs to get their acts together, talk about stuff that matters and get people that aren't all talk, with no idea how to put things in action, in office.
Bernard S. Cockerham, Jr., Webmaster  Title: Will you stop eating red meat and bacon?

Author: Bernard S. Cockerham, Jr., Webmaster
29.OCT.2015
From KCCI: Dr. Oz discusses the news that processed meat may cause cancer, today at 3 on KCCI!

My response: Remember the days when they said that butter was bad and margarine is good, then butter was good and margarine was bad? Breathing air, smoking, not smoking, thinking about smoking, light, no light, farting, toe jam, eating period, drinking period, having a period, not having a period, being a man, being a woman, being non-human, and being human will all cause cancer. Hearing about the 100+ year old peeps and hearing what they eat regularly - and some of them smoke regularly - and they're still going, I'm not putting a lot of weight on giving up meat. Are they going to recommend that everyone have their carnivorous teeth removed and have a mouth full of molars?
Bernard S. Cockerham, Jr., Webmaster  Title: School calls this American flag shirt 'gang-related'

Author: Bernard S. Cockerham, Jr., Webmaster
29.OCT.2015
From HLN



My Response: Clue flag! State flag symbol, with American flag superimposed (If I remember correctly, California is part of America.) The school, which is in California, is flying the same state flag, under the American flag (And the real state flag has the same red star on it). Why single out this child, when they are doing the same, actually worse (they've been flying it longer than that child has attended). The school went too far. Nothing sets reality like being sued, so sue the school; they'll fix their issue.
Bernard S. Cockerham, Jr., Webmaster Bernard S. Cockerham, Jr., Webmaster
10.29.2015 08:15 :: Please bear with me, time to get unreal... So, with stars being gang symbols, so we ban the American flag and all of the state flags that bear a star on them. We can't give the school money or pay the employees, currency has stars on it. Have to ban cars, because some gang members have cars and driver's licences and insurance and Jiffy Lube accounts and drive on streets. We have to ban air, because gang members breathe.

Getting back to reality. We do need to work on the over-sensitivity we have in this nation. We're getting closer and closer to The Hunger Games (movie, 2012) and Equilibrium (movie, 2002). You have to watch and understand both movies to grasp my reference.


Bernard S. Cockerham, Jr., Webmaster Bernard S. Cockerham, Jr., Webmaster
10.29.2015 08:59 ::
So, this is gang related?

The 31 on the star represents the state being the 31st state. The design is actually the state flag. And the stars and stripes, ummm, they seem vaguely familiar; should be familiar to everyone on the planet (to include the unplugged, Amish, and fish). Fish reference: Enough of our ships and boats catch fish, and the fish gangs talk. OH! We may have to ban the oceans and seas, the fish are going to unite, take us out during a surf and turf dinner, at a Sushi Bar, at a Sashimi Bar, during a Beta and Goldfish feedings.

Country instituted a policy of one child per couple to control population growth in the 1970s

My response: Just in time for Apple's rollout of iPhone 15. I hope that in this modern age, and in that country, their government doesn't impede the ability for the families to help themselves. I'm pretty sure that this move is more for the country's financial or military gain.
Bernard S. Cockerham, Jr., Webmaster  Title: Ford Edge Park Assist

Author: Bernard S. Cockerham, Jr., Webmaster
27.OCT.2015
From Ford Edge: Park assist

My response: A couple of scenarios come to mind...

Scenario 1 = Driver: There's a parking spot.
Edge: I've got this.
All together: PARK ASSIST POWER, ACTIVATE!
Then the Edge breaks down, mid-parking spot.

Scenario 2 = Driver executes a park assist. Driver leaves vehicle to go get crumpets and tea. Driver returns to his vehicle at bottom of hill. Park assist can't possibly have the common sense to turn wheels when parked on a hill.


Then Patrick, a commenter, responded with this: That's why, once the parking assist vehicle has commenced its duty, you take back control of the vehicle and turn the steers to the right?


My response to that: Patrick, Humans love executing an automatic process, that should be foundation knowledge, and following it up with a manual process (sarcasm). Math is a good example: Using a calculator, but being told to show your work. LOL... Another pleasant memory, iRobot, with Will Smith. Smith gave legit reasons for driving himself, instead of technology doing it for him. The reasons apply here. If you haven't seen it, go watch it, live it, learn it, love it.

From OpposingViews: 12-Year-Old Boy Writes Instruction Manual For Understanding Women - Click link to go to article

My Response: LMAO! True true... Absolutely true... He's figuring this out before puberty, wise before his years. LOL

Ummm, Ray... There is a big difference between how to treat a woman and understanding a woman. We'll use computers as an example: People use the computers with respect, for electricity, capabilities, and value. They are a personal investment. They try to use get it to maximum potential. BUT, knowledge of the inner workings, for some is an unknown. Cars, another example: People care for, polish, service and baby their cars. BUT, when it comes to the inner workings, absolutely no clue. Women example, love, honor, respect, and listen to them; but when it comes to the inner workings (Just the mind part, everything else is covered :P), no one knows.

Tom, Awesome hints! LMAO!

Ray's Statement, though true, wrongly placed: The way to treat a woman is to love her.

Tom's Statement: Sorry kid don't try
Some helpful hints.
1) they never look fat
2) if you have to be someplace at 2, tell them 130 you will be still late but not as late.
3) if you don't have 3 days do not argue with them.
4)they are usually pretty good with directions so listen to them, better to get lost because of them than you.
5)Best phrase to remember.. Yes Dear Your Right.

From KCCI:

My comment: People can't drive in this state, as it is. Mention snow, crunch crunch; it actually snows, ditch ditch; if it rains, crunch ditch; if if freezing rains, crunch crunch whoa whoa ditch. Those snow plows and scraping up the paint and poorly made asphalt and concrete makes for paint to not stick well and will leave people confused on where to go... "NO NO NO... I'm supposed to be on that side!" Keep your traffic cam on this, this'll be why your rates go up.

Author: Bernard S. Cockerham, Jr., Webmaster
23.OCT.2015
From KCCI: Subway was sued for the sandwiches not being 12-inches.

People started commenting on the sandwich contents, conparing to Casey's subs.

My comment: The meat and cheese are what you get charged extra for. You can ask for loads to the other stuff and not get charged. Did everyone forget the cost of beef and chicken? That they have to pay the electric bills, pay the employees, pay the chip and beverage vendor, ship the items to the stores, pay insurance, leases/fees? A lot goes into getting that sandwich to you, on fresh baked bread, with chips and a drink, so you don't have to do it at home. Now for the subject at hand. Subway could have fixed this by lengthening the bread pans and allowing a longer rise time for the bread. Subs won't break Casey's they have other revenue makers. If you know the person making the sub at Casey's, you could get away with a predominantly meat sandwich. But, I'm pretty sure that if you rolled up this way and asked for extra meat on you sandwich from Casey's, you will get charged - They wouldn't know you from any other Tom, Joe and Jane. The way subs are done at Subway and pretty much identical across the franchise. I do not and never have worked for Subway or Casey's. People have no clue on what it takes to bring on-call convenience them; that is why they can look the gift horse in the mouth. Back to subject at hand. Subway grow your pans, grow your bread.

From KCCI: Trump reacted to the results of a poll by Quinnipac University, where Trump trails Carson.

My response to another poster and Iowa: Focus! This is not about Mrs. Clinton. This is about the tweet. I'm not an Iowan, but here's the deal... Iowa is one of those states that grows his food and grows food for his food. This isn't about Monsanto, this isn't about DeKalb, or Bayer, or 50-mile sunspots. This is about how Iowa is viewed behind the scenes, then having to wave the "My Bad" flag... Yes, all of them have oopsed at one time or another, some more than others; but this article is not about the others' tweets. Every poll is biased; it makes the candidates react to the numbers and campaign harder, the constituents react and vote more (Unfortunately, argue their support in the wrong places, on the wrong posts, in a negative way that drives others away from their desired candidate). Back to the tweet... He should be invited back to Iowa, with said intern and be queried for their collective position on Iowa, how their last steak taste, the bacon, the companies in Iowa that grow the food and raise the cattle, corn and brains.
Bernard S. Cockerham, Jr., Webmaster  Title: U.S. study: Marijuana use doubled in 10 years

Author: Bernard S. Cockerham, Jr., Webmaster
22.OCT.2015
From KCCI: A heck of a lot more Americans were toking up in 2012-13 than 10 years before -- and not for medical reasons, either -- according to a new study.
The percentage of American adults who had used marijuana within the last year was 9.5 percent, the study found. ...

My response... I don't see the data being valid. 36000+ people; unless you interview the exact same 36000+ and factor in population growth, social-economic differences from 10 years ago - can't say that the number has doubled. Let's say that the number has doubled or tripled, in 10 years... That would mean that means Quik-Trip needs to put in larger capacity hot dogs rollers, all fast food places would have to stay open 24 hours, Jimmy John's will have to deliver faster, Frito-Lay will have to step up their party-sized chip game (Frito-Lay bring back First, Second and Third Degree Burn Doritos, Stop making Roulette - Ewww!), and fewer cop cars patrolling ("Sir, can you put the car in park for me?" "Okay..." "Do you know why I WALKED OVER here and stopped you?" "Because we were SPEEDING." "No, it took you 30 minutes to go 5 feet")
Bernard S. Cockerham, Jr., Webmaster  Title: Shopping on Facebook

Author: Bernard S. Cockerham, Jr., Webmaster
12.OCT.2015
From KCCI: Would you shop through Facebook? Facebook introduces new shopping features.

My thoughts: Facebook shares everything in your feed; so, if you bought family members a gift, they'd know about it the moment you bought it - likewise, for the connected kids, you buy Christmas gifts, they see that you bought Xboks 360° instead of Xbox 360° (they'll plan the regifting before they get the gift) - likewise, husband buys his wife a little somethin' somethin', friends and family know that something steaming is on the horizon. Social media should be social media, Consumer sites should be consumer sites. It would be like same-day amputation and spleen removal at Walmart. Re: FB Shopping - "Unfriend 3 old friends and earn a $10-off coupon for 2 or more Wrangler Jeans; unfriend 5 old friends and adopt a random friend and earn $20-off coupon for 15 cases of Mentos (the fresh maker)" All humor aside, I know they're going to charge on, but it's not right.
