Big T Pic of the Day

Big T Idiot of the Week.

Once again it is Monday and that means it is time to select the Big T idiot of the week. This week we find our idiot in a Missouri Home Depot store.

Haywood Rosales claims he was injured after being glued to a toilet seat in a Home Depot store restroom and has filed a lawsuit against the retail giant for negligence.

Rosales says he did not notice the toilet seat was covered with adhesive before sitting down and then had to use his cell phone to call for help after becoming glued to the seat.

Rosales also claims the removal of the seat caused cuts, bruising and tearing on his buttocks and thighs and he endured embarrassment and pain and suffering. He also claims his injury rendered him unable to work and is seeking $25,000 in damages.

Is Mr. Rosales serious? If anyone is to blame I would say it is him for not checking the seat out for himself. Seriously, when was the last time you used a public restroom without thoroughly checking the seat? I hope your answer is the same as mine, never.

You have to check the seat and failure to do so makes Mr. Rosales the Big T idiot of the week.

That was Then, This is Now...

I have been reading about James Madison. He was a founding father and the fourth President of the United States. I have to add that for all you government-educated kids who don’t have a clue who he is.

Anyways, I ran across this message from the past and quote from Madison:

“The government of the United States is a definite government, confined to specified objects. It is not like the state government, whose powers are more general. Charity is no part of the legislative duty of the government.”

Of course, that was then, this is now. If you listen to the presidential candidates you would think the primary purpose of our federal government is to redistribute wealth and provide free charitable services to everyone.

UNICEF Partners with Terrorist Organization

United Nations Children Fund (UNICEF) is a charitable group chartered under the UN. I am not and have never been a fan. When it comes to UNICEF, I can think of plenty other charitable organizations doing wonderful things for children. This time UNICEF has really crossed the line into the dark side.

UNICEF has decided to partner with the International Islamic Relief Organization (IIRO) based in Saudi Arabia. On the surface everything looks legit and alright, but then you find out the IIRO has been designated as a terrorist group by the United States and the UN itself!

In August 2006, the US Treasury Department designated two branches of the IIRO as terrorist organizations because they provided money and support to groups linked to al Qaeda including Abu Sayyaf in the Phillipines.

A former member of this group in the Philippines testifies a limit amount of foreign funding for the IIRO goes to legitimate projects and the rest of the money goes to terrorist operations.

This group, as well as others, is on the UN 1267 Committee’s consolidated list of individuals and entities associated with the Taliban, al Qaeda and Osama Bin Ladin.

I have asked it before, and I will ask it again. Why are we still a part of the UN? Why do we continue to fund the UN? The UN is the biggest waste of taxpayer money ever!
