Two And A Half Men’s Angus T. Jones Apologizes For His Silly Comments

Angus T. Jones released a statement apologizing for talking about his show earlier this week. While lots of folks have been wondering if he jumped on that crazy train, it seems Angus put the cup of kool-aid down and realized that $8 milli he’s making a year looks pretty good…even if his show is ‘filth’.

According to TMZ, he’s got 99 problems and losin’ his job may be one:

“I have been the subject of much discussion, speculation and commentary over the past 24 hours.

While I cannot address everything that has been said or right every misstatement or misunderstanding, there is one thing I want to make clear. Without qualification, I am grateful to and have the highest regard and respect for all of the wonderful people on Two and Half Men with whom I have worked and over the past ten years who have become an extension of my family.

Chuck Lorre, Peter Roth and many others at Warner Bros. and CBS are responsible for what has been one of the most significant experiences in my life to date. I thank them for the opportunity they have given and continue to give me and the help and guidance I have and expect to continue to receive from them.

I also want all of the crew and cast on our show to know how much I personally care for them and appreciate their support, guidance and love over the years. I grew up around them and know that the time they spent with me was in many instances more than with their own families. I learned life lessons from so many of them and will never forget how much positive impact they have had on my life.

I apologize if my remarks reflect me showing indifference to and disrespect of my colleagues and a lack of appreciation of the extraordinary opportunity of which I have been blessed. I never intended that.”

Did he just go back on everything he was trying to stand up for???

Sad: Parents Of Slain Student Jasmine Benjamin Found Out About Her Death On Facebook

The school didn’t notify her parents and they were even more devastated to find out about their daughters death after reading a facebook post!

According to The Huffington Post, Judith Jackson and Jasmine’s stepfather James Jackson have criticized her university since, saying that it never told them about her death — or her possible murder.

CBS Atlanta reports that authorities say Benjamin could have been deceased for up to 15 hours before she was discovered in a dorm’s shared, common study room. Police suspect foul play.

“That’s the most disturbing part of it. Aren’t there RAs?” Jackson told CBS. “What kind of school is this that they don’t know someone’s laying on the couch – to go check on them after a certain amount of hours?”

PREVIOUSLY:
More than a week has passed since a freshman at Valdosta State University was killed in a homicide, but police have yet to offer much information about the crime or the possible culprit.

Student Jasmine Benjamin, 17, was found dead around noon on Nov. 18 in a study room in Georgia Hall, on campus, according to the Atlanta Journal Constitution.

Benjamin’s parents, mother Judith Brogdon and stepfather James Jackson, told the Atlanta Journal-Constitution they were initially told their daughter died of natural causes. But within 24 hours, police said her death was being investigated as a homicide due to information from the medical examiner’s autopsy.

“To find out it was a homicide and that somebody actually murdered our daughter changed everything,” Jackson told the paper. “It was like hearing the news all over again.”

Investigators cautioned that it will be a few weeks before they get the complete autopsy results and can confirm Benjamin’s death was in fact a murder, the Associated Press reported. The Georgia Bureau of Investigation and the Federal Bureau of Investigation are both now involved in the case.

According to the Lowndes County coroner, Bill Watson, when Benjamin’s body was discovered, she had been dead for 12 to 15 hours. Police aren’t releasing many details of the timeline leading up to her death, but Benjamin’s friends said they last saw her on the night of Nov. 16. Since many students were away last week for the Thanksgiving holiday, the AP reports there has been a bit of a delay in gathering information related to the case.

The school should be ashamed of themselves.

Erica, girl, come get your man….

Lil Scrappy Gets President Obama’s Face Tattooed On His Stomach

It might be time for LHHATL to start taping early, because cast member Lil Scrappy clearly has a little too much time on his hands during the off season.

The ATL rapper recently took some of his reality show gwap and got a life-sized tattoo of a gigantic dollar bill bearing President Barack Obama’s face across his stomach.

What do you think of Scrappy’s ode to President Obama?

Las Vegas Employer Follows-Through With His Threat And Fires Employees After President Obama Wins!

The business owner says he ‘warned’ his employees that if Barack was re-elected, he would have to let people go because of Obamacare!!

That’s some straight bull right there, and according to CBS Las Vegas, the employer (who wished to remain anonymous) admits he encouraged them to vote for Mittens in order to prevent their own fate…SMH:

A Las Vegas business owner with 114 employees fired 22 workers today, apparently as a direct result of President Obama’s re-election.

“David” (he asked to remain anonymous for obvious reasons) told Host Kevin Wall on 100.5 KXNT that “elections have consequences” and that “at the end of the day, I need to survive.”

“I’ve done my share of educating my employees. I never tell them which way to vote. I believe in the free system we have, I believe in the right to choose who they want to be president, but I did explain as a business owner that I have always put my employees first. I always made sure that when I went without a paycheck that [I] made sure they were paid. And I explained that I always put them first and unfortunately I’m at a point where I’m being forced to have to worry about me and my family now and a business that I built from just me to 114 employees.

“I explained to them a month ago that if Obama gets in office that the regulations for Obamacare are gonna hurt our business, and I’m gonna have to make provisions to make sure I have enough money to cover the payroll taxes, the additional health care I’m gonna have to do, and I explained that to them and I said you do what you feel like in your heart you need to do, but I’m just letting you know as a warning this is things I have to think of as a business owner.

“Well unfortunately, and most of my employees are Hispanic — I’m not gonna go into what kind of company I have, but I have mostly Hispanic employees — well unfortunately we know what happened and I can’t wait around anymore, I have to be proactive. I had to lay off 22 people today to make sure that my business is gonna thrive and I’m gonna be around for years to come. I have to build up that nest egg now for the taxes and regulations that are coming my way. Elections do have consequences, but so do choices. A choice you make every day has consequences and you know what, I’ve always put my employees first, but unfortunately today I have to put me and my family first, and you watch what’s gonna happen. I’m just one guy with 114 employees — well was 114 employees — watch what happens in the next six months. The Dow alone lost 314 points today. There’s a tsunami coming and if you didn’t think this election had consequences, just wait.”

Lots of folks had some pretty rude comments to make and most were in defense of this fool. People are really pissed that Barack’s got another four years and the divide in this country right now is undeniable.

Texas Mom Sets World Record: She Donated 87 Gallons Of Breastmilk

She really is the Dairy Queen…

Alicia Richman Wins World Record For ‘Most Breastmilk Donated’

Via HuffingtonPost:

Alicia Richman of Granbury, Tex. has been declared the new Guinness World Record holder for “Most Breastmilk Donated,” CBS DFW reports. Between June 2011 and March 2012, The 28-year-old mother of one donated 11,115 ounces — or 694 pounds — of breastmilk to charity, according to Guinness. By volume, that’s about 87 gallons.

Richman told CBS that after she gave birth in March 2011, she began pumping and storing her milk, and quickly realized she was producing much more than her son could consume.

When two freezers were chock full of pumped milk, Richman contacted the Mothers’ Milk Bank of North Texas, an nonprofit that collects breast milk donations for critically ill and premature infants in need.

Her donations have fed “hundreds, and more likely, thousands of premature babies across the United States,” Amy Vickers, executive director of the milk bank, says in a press release.

Richman says she went for the Guinness record because she wanted to raise awareness for the cause and encourage other women to donate to milk banks.

“I’m so thankful that I’m able to help not only my own baby, Drake, but all of the little babies who need it and are sick,” Richman told News 8. “It really feels amazing and I’m so thankful that I’m able to do it.”

What an incredible act! That is dedication (and generosity) on a whole ‘nother level, way to go momma. Yeah, she’s definitely got milk.

White Minnesota Teacher Called Black 6th Grade Students “Fat, Black And Stupid”

SMH!

The St. Paul Public School District and Timothy Olmsted, 6th grade teacher at the Heights Community School in St. Paul, Minnesota, are being sued by his students’ families. The lawsuit comes after students reported Olmsted’sdiscrimination against African-American students:

Olmsted resigned this past spring, but the school district is still paying him through the first week of October. Parents are upset that no disciplinary action has been taken against Olmsted.

Latasha Tolbert’s daughter was a student in Olmsted’s class. Tolbert spoke to CBS and said Olmsted, “told the entire class that it is easier for him to teach rich white folks, than poor black people,” and it didn’t stop there. He also told Tolbert’s daughter that she would be standing on the corner and begging for money one day.

Tolbert tried again and again to bring these incidents to the attention of school officials. The Star Tribune reports, in the lawsuit that was filed by parents, that Tolbert said she made 98 calls to Heights Principal Jayne Ropella about Olmsted’s behavior from September to December.

The lawsuit alleges Olmsted called black students “fat, black and stupid,” and even made black students sit in the back of his room or turn their desks to face the wall. Sixth grade, African-American student, Aylecia Ingram-Jones said she was forced to sit in the back solely because of the color of her skin.

This is not the first incident Olmsted is involved in. He has several reprimands from the district, including being suspended for five days without pay for giving a graphic description to his class of castrating horses and throwing testicles into the field for cats to eat. The Star Tribune reports Olmsted received another five-day suspension without pay in 2003 for giving a 6th grade student a birthday card containing sexual innuendo and making her read it to the class.

Although the lawsuit has been moved to the federal courts, the families’ lawyer, Meg Kane does not expect the case to go to trial for at least another year.

This is just ridiculous! How dare a teacher misuse his role and bully these children like that. Teachers hold one of the biggest influences on a child’s life, outside of their parents. This is not acceptable and he should be FIRED!!!

Michelle Obama to David Letterman: “Don’t Make Me Cry. This Isn’t Oprah” [VIDEO]

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

NEW YORK (AP) — First lady Michelle Obama says she thought for sure her cover was blown during an undercover visit to Target last year when a woman approached her in the detergent aisle.

But the first lady told David Letterman on Monday the woman only wanted help with a package she couldn’t reach.

During Obama’s visit to CBS’ “Late Show,” Letterman held up a picture of her after she put on sunglasses and a baseball cap to try to visit a Washington-area store last September.

Obama said the woman apparently was oblivious of the fact she had asked a favor of the first lady and said “you didn’t have to make it look so easy” after the detergent was retrieved.

“That was my interaction,” Obama said. “It felt so good.”

The first lady talked about how she learned from her parents the notion of unconditional love, that the most important thing for children to know is that their parents adore them. She said she and the president try to instill that stability in their own two daughters, and almost became emotional talking about her father.

“Don’t make me cry,” she said. “This isn’t `Oprah.’ It’s supposed to be `Letterman.’”

The “Late Show with David Letterman” airs weeknights at 11:35 Eastern time.
