Jesse James Nazi Pics Hit the Web as Bullock Decides to Divorce: Report

A new picture has arisen of Sandra Bullock's husband, Jesse James, wearing a Nazi visor and standing in a mock Nazi salute, just about a week-and-a-half after modeling pictures of Michelle "Bombshell" McGee wearing a Swastika armband showed up. McGee was the first of James' mistresses to reveal herself.

According to US Magazine, the James' pic was taken in 2004, a year before he wed Bullock. Apparently, however, James did it for shock value, and was just joking around.
"He had a stepmom whose father lost family in the camps, and they'd talk about it growing up. Jesse's not a white supremacist."
The photo arose on the same day that rumors that Sandra Bullock had decided to file for divorce. Additionally, it's been reported that James has entered a Tucson rehab facility, though an unknown type of facility.

Anime Proves "Two Nukes Not Enough": NH State Rep

In 2003, acclaimed Japanese director Hayao Miyazaki, who has created many animated motion pictures, won an Oscar for "Spirited Away." Apparently, that's no evidence that anime is of any worth, as two nukes just weren't enough, at least for New Hampshire state representative Nick Levasseur (D).

Levasseur reportedly updated his Facebook status to say this on Thursday:
"anime is a prime example of why two nukes just wasn't enough...."
You can watch a local news video below. The report goes on to state the obvious: the statement "could be deemed as insensitive toward the Japanese heritage." Er, however, it should also be obvious that it's not just the Japanese who watch anime.

Levasseur apologized, stating that the remark was meant to be private. That, of course, makes it all better. Who would want to nuke Kiki (above, from another Miyazaki film, "Kiki's Delivery Service."

Of course, the GOP in NH jumped on it immediately, asking NH's Gov. Lynch to ask his party to stop participating in such "shameful behavior," forgetting of course, Larry Craig, Paul Stanley,
Mark Foley (and those are just some of the ones involved in sex scandals). This Levasseur incident is just foot in mouth disease, not dick in *** disease.

Thief asks cop for directions, is arrested

In yet another example of the brilliance of some criminals, a thief in Utah was arrested after stopping the investigating officer in the case, and asking for directions.

John White allegedly stole two cell phones from a convenience store. Meanwhile, he also left a slip of paper at a gas station, one which contained the very address that he asked the officer for directions to.

The investigating officer noticed that White was asking about the address he was checking on, and also that he matched the description given to him by a store clerk.

The officer found he also had both of the phones involved, as well as some marijuana. He was arrested, and charges are pending.

Bush appears to wipe hand after handshake with Haitian

Former presidents George W. Bush and Bill Clinton are in Haiti this week, in a joint visit reviewing the state of the country after their devastating January earthquake. In a video uploaded to YouTube, Bush is seen apparently wiping his hand after shaking the hand of a Haitian.

Other sites have asked the same question.

It could have been worse, we suppose. Bush could have wiped his hand after shaking hands with Clinton.

Media Goes Crazy Over Joe Biden F-Bomb (Video)

Yesterday, during the signing the health care reform bill both VP Joe Biden and President Barack Obama were there. Obviously, they should have been, as it was a big deal. The Joe Biden f-bomb (video below) inserted between big and deal is what is causing an uproar.

Seriously, though, why is this such a big deal? The Joe Biden f-bomb is barely audible. What happened is that Biden introduced Obama, and said "this is a big f*cking deal," into Obama's ear. It's not like he shouted the f-bomb or anything?

At any rate, listen very carefully to the Joe Biden f-bomb video and as he hugs Obama, you can barely hear it. A big uproar over nothing really, though Biden is known to be a victim of foot-in-mouth disease.

Police Arrest 16-year-old in Wal-Mart "All black people leave" Case

Police have arrested a 16-year-old Washington Township, N.J teenager, who is accused of picking up one of two dozen public address phones accessible to the Washington Township store’s customers, and saying “Attention, Walmart customers: All black people, leave the store now.” The incident occurred on March 14th.

A manager quickly got on the intercom system and apologized for the remark. However, some community members said on Saturday that they’ve heard reports of similar incidents at the store that were not reported to police.

It is as yet unclear if the teen, unnamed due to his age, felt his actions were simply a prank. However, speaking to a psychologist, Dr. Dominika Osmolska, PsyD, the evidence is clear that there is certainly racism involved: "Well, of course. After all, with access to the P.A. system, why choose to say that, otherwise?"

Police would not confirm if the boy had a criminal record and would not disclose the teen’s race. If convicted, he would face up to a year in juvenile detention.

Loretta Winters, president of the Gloucester County chapter of the NAACP, said “We are concerned about that, and we’re looking into these incidents. We want to work with the community to make sure these types of incidents don’t happen. I’m assuming this person didn’t realize how hurtful his comments were."

Speaking again to Dr. Osmolska, she said that despite his apparent racism, the above comments could still be true. "Frequently teenagers are thoughtless, and do not realize how their actions affect other people. This does not discount the apparent racism in the boy, nor likely in his parents, as racism generally begins at home."

Michelle "Bombshell" McGee Nazi pics heat up Bullock - James scandal

As if the Sandra Bullock - Jesse James split rumors (and perhaps reality) are not bad enough, the latest news in the scandal centers on Michelle "Bombshell" McGee Nazi pics (linked from TMZ above).

According to TMZ, the Michelle "Bombshell" McGee Nazi pics were taken about a year ago, and were not her idea. Rather, they were the idea of the photographer, but the site said that she was very enthusiastic about the idea.

In one of the Michelle "Bombshell" McGee Nazi pics the letter "w" is on her left leg while the letter "p" on her right. According to the report, McGee says it stands for "white power."

Additionally, and adding some degree of validity to the furor over the Michelle "Bombshell" McGee Nazi pics, the report added that in child custody documents filed in January, McGee's ex-husband wrote that she "makes the Nazi salute," and has a swastika tattooed on her stomach.

All this started as the result of an In Touch interview, in which the tattoo model said that she had a months-long affair with Jesse James while Sandra Bullock was away filming "The Blind Side." Bullock won the Best Actress Oscar for the film.

In doing so, she also joined other actresses in the so-called "Oscar Love Curse" category: Hilary Swank, Halle Berry, Julia Roberts, Helen Hunt, Reese Witherspoon, and most recently Kate Winslet all had splits after their wins.

TMZ has a gallery of Michelle "Bombshell" McGee photos, though if you are not a fan of tattoos, you may not find Jesse James' alleged mistress to your taste.

Erin Andrews Peephole Video Stalker Sentenced

The person behind the famous Erin Andrews peephole video, which was taken as the ESPN reporter traveled during an 18-month period, has been sentenced to 30 months in prison. Michael Barrett, 48, was also ordered to pay restitution in the amount of $7,366.

Barrett had previously pleaded guilty to the charge. Michael Barrett reportedly shopped the Erin Andrews peephole videos to at least on celebrity website, and after being turned down, uploaded 10 of them on the Internet, IDing the reporter in his posts.

At Monday's sentencing hearing, the ESPN reporter told the court that she still suffers as a result of the "Erin Andrews peephole video." The 31-year-old said:

"I'm being victimized every day...and I did nothing to deserve it. I'm living public humiliation. It's my body that's on the Internet. [...] He stalked me, he terrorized me -- this will never be over for me, and I don't want it to ever be over for you (referring to Barrett)."

During the aftermath of the Erin Andrews peephole video revelations, Andrews sometimes found herself stalked by others. You can read a transcript of a 911 call and listen to audio here.

According to court documents, at least 16 other unidentified women were targeted by Barrett in the same way. Court papers described them only as "female sports reporters and other television personalities."

Erin Andrews was voted America's "sexiest sportscaster" by Playboy magazine in 2007 and 2008, pre-peephole video days, and will be one of the celebrity contestants in the upcoming season of ABC's "Dancing with the Stars," which starts on March 22.

Tiger Woods confirms PGA return at The Masters

On Tuesday, Tiger Woods confirmed what most had suspected: he will return to the PGA Tour at the Masters. The first round of the tournament is April 8th.

Tiger Woods has not competed since Nov. 15th, when he won the Australian Masters. That was his 82nd victory worldwide. Following that, on Black Friday 2009, he had a now famous single-car accident that opened up the doors to the scandal involving his numerous affairs.

He's been dropped by some sponsors, minimized by others, and he took a leave of absence from the PGA tour. Since then, he's been at sex addiction clinics, as well as attempting to repair his relationship with his wife, Elin Nordegren Woods.

Tiger Woods has 14 major wins (The Masters, the PGA Championship, the British Open, and the U.S. Open), while Jack Nicklaus leads overall with 18. It was widely believed, and in fact, reported by AP last Thursday, that Woods would not miss any major championships this year as he attempts to surpass Nicklaus.

In a press release on his website, Tiger Woods said:
"The Masters is where I won my first major, and I view this tournament with great respect. After a long and necessary time away from the game, I feel like I'm ready to start my season at Augusta.

"The major championships have always been a special focus in my career and, as a professional, I think Augusta is where I need to be, even though it's been awhile since I last played.

"I have undergone almost two months of inpatient therapy, and I am continuing my treatment. Although I'm returning to competition, I still have a lot of work to do in my personal life.

"When I finally got into a position to think about competitive golf again, it became apparent to me that the Masters would be the earliest I could play. I called both Joe Lewis and Arnold Palmer and expressed my regrets for not attending the Tavistock Cup and the Arnold Palmer Invitational. I again want to thank them both for their support and their understanding. Those are fantastic tournaments, and I look forward to competing in them again.

"I would also like to thank the Augusta National members and staff for their support. I have deep appreciation for everything that they do to create a wonderful event for the benefit of the game."

Tiger Woods-centric episode to open South Park Season 14

South Park is ready for season 14, and they are going to start the season off with a bang. Not a banging, but a bang, though you might assume that since they are targeting Tiger Woods with their first episode, banging might be involved. Since the Black Friday 2009 car accident that first spotlighted to the public the reality of Tiger Woods' numerous affairs and sex addiction, Woods has been lampooned, roasted (and not a celebrity roast) and derided. How could South Park pass it up?

"It's such an important issue in America right now — the sex addiction outbreak," Matt Stone, who partners with Trey Parker on the series, said on Friday. "We're all really concerned about him and hope he gets better."

It's difficult to tell if that concern is honest or sarcastic.  Stone and Parker were reportedly still working on the script on Friday, and he noted that he was both fascinated and disgusted by Woods' public apology, so sarcasm isn't out of the question.

South Park's new season begins on Wednesday, and the series will air its 200th episode next month.

March 13th Becomes First National Coffee Party Movement Day

Accidentally started by documentary filmmaker Annabel Park, the Coffee Party movement faces its first test today:  newly-formed Coffee Party chapters are meeting all across the country.  Formed out of frustration over what some call the extreme views of the Tea Party movement, and even racism, the Coffee Party movement started with a rant on her Facebook page by Park.

Several weeks ago, Park posted the following on Facebook:
"Let's start a coffee party — a Red Bull party — anything but tea. Let's get together and drink cappuccino and have real political dialogue with substance and compassion."
After Park was swamped by responses agreeing with her, that the Tea Party movement did not represent their of America, things snowballed.  The official Coffee Party movement Facebook group has swelled to over 130,000 fans.   They also have an official website. Interestingly, despite being founded in March of 2009, as opposed to weeks ago, the Tea Party facebook group has only 110,000 fans.

Saturday, local Coffee Party movement organizers will hold more than 350 meetings for the Coffee Party National Kick Off. Meetings will take place in almost every state, with national organizers encouraging groups of no more than eight people at a local (where else) coffee shop.

The Coffee Party movement declares the following on its Facebook page:
"We want jobs with decent pay for all Americans. We want affordable health care and education. We want our government to cut wasteful spending and practice fiscal discipline. We want regulation of Wall Street to protect consumers and promotion of financial literacy."
It also states the following in a message to Congress:
"You work for us, not for corporations. We hired you and we get to fire you. We pay you and give you great health insurance. Now get to work serving the interests of the American people, or get out."
The Coffee Party movement, like the Tea Party movement, believes that government does not represent them.  Unlike the Tea Party, however, the Coffee Party wants to change it so that government does represent them.  Meanwhile, the Tea Party wants government to go away.

It is clear, therefore, that the Tea Parties have not taken an example from Denmark.  For years (2007, 2008, late 2009) Denmark has been called the "happiest place on earth."

University of Copenhagen Sociologist Peter Glindelock described part of the reason for the happiness in Denmark is, in fact, big government. He has conducted many studies on this issue.
Glindelock says part of the reason is the country's social system. "The happiness standard is the quality of life in different societies. And Denmark scores very highly on all those different values. So even though the climate is poor, which is part of that analysis, it still shows that the welfare state is very important for people's happiness."

In Denmark, the state controls the health, educational, and other systems, and the Danes are willing to pay high taxes to support them. "And this kind of welfare state means that everybody gets more or less the same from the state," said Glindelock. "At least what the Danes like, they like an egalitarian society."

Burbank teacher Amy Beck remains in jail for alleged sex with student

Amy Beck, a 33-year-old mother-of-three and a sixth-grade teacher from Burbank, California has been in jail since earlier this week after turning herself in for having sex with a teenager last year. The boy in question was 14 at the time.

Amy Beck has been charged with five counts of unlawful sex with a person under 16. The boy has since moved from David Starr Jordan Middle School to a different location, officials said.

Originally, Beck was scheduled to be arraigned on Wednesday. However, the arraignment was postponed until March 25th. If tried and convicted, Amy Beck could face up to seven years in prison.

It is of note that Amy Beck turned herself in on Monday, as opposed to someone such as Melinda Dennehy (accused of sexting a student). Amy Beck is being held on $175,000 bail. The Burbank Unified School District said she resigned the Friday before turning herself in to authorities.

While Amy Beck admittedly turned herself into police, her attorney, Michael Williamson, said:
“My client is not making any admissions. She’s voluntarily assisting and cooperating with the Burbank Police Department.”
In fact, the arraignment was reportedly postponed by a Los Angeles County Superior Court judge so that Amy Beck could continue to work with authorities, as noted above.

"Born in the U.S.A." Anti-American, Propaganda: Beck

"Born in the U.S.A." is a 1984 song written and performed by Bruce Springsteen, taken from the album of the same name. It is one of his best-known songs. Rolling Stone ranked the song 275th on their list of the 500 Greatest Songs of All Time. Glenn Beck, however, calls it "anti-American," and "propaganda."

To be sure, Bruce Springsteen certainly wouldn't be on Beck's list of fans, and vice-versa. Springsteen has endorsed a number of Democrats, including President Obama. He also put on a show at the 2008 Democratic National Convention, and did so for Sen. John Kerry (D-MA) near the end of the 2004 presidential campaign.

Here's what Beck said on his March 11th radio show (he starts by reading the lyrics to "Born in the U.S.A.," not singing them):
Born down in a dead man's town. The first kick I took is when I hit the ground. You end up like a dog that's been beat too much. Until you spend half your life just covering up. Born in the USA. I got in a little hometown jam and somebody put a rifle in my hands, sent me off to Vietnam: Go kill the yellow man. Born in the USA. Come back home to the refinery. Hiring man says, son, if it were up to me. I go down to see the VA man. He said, son, you don't understand. Born in the USA. I have a buddy at Khe Sahn inviting off the Vietcong. They're still there; he's all gone. He had a little girl in Saigon. I got a picture of him in her arms. Down in the shadow of the penitentiary, out by the gas fires of the refinery, I'm ten years down the road, nowhere to run. Ain't got nowhere to go. I'm a long gone daddy in the USA. Born in the USA. I'm a cool rocking daddy in the USA. Born in the USA. Hmmm. [...]

See, here's the thing that I think people don't understand yet. I think you do. That it is time for us to wake. People who have come from the Soviet bloc or Cuba, they are all saying, how do you guys not hear this? How are you not seeing this? Well, because we don't ever expect it.
The Boss, un-American? Say it ain't so! That's bound to earn Beck the ire of Springsteen fans.

Here's the song, by the way:

Jamie Jungers Wins Stern's "Tiger Woods Mistress Beauty Pageant"

There are so many alleged Tiger Woods mistresses that its hard to keep up with them. Only one can claim the title of Miss Tiger Woods, however. The Howard Stern show held a "beauty pageant" on Wednesday, with Jamie Jungers winning the contest.

As the winner, Jamie Jungers took home $75,000. It should be made clear, though, that the pageant only included Jamie Jungers, Jaimie Grubbs, and Loredana Jolie. It didn't, for example, include Rachel Uchitel, the first outed mistress.

The contest consisted of the women coming out and discussing their relationship with Tiger. Jamie Jungers was first, and she had a few things to say, including the fact Woods never used a condom during their relationship. She also mentioned that Woods referred to her as his "little coffee cup" and "Jamie Juices."

Loredana Jolie followed Jamie Jungers. Interestingly, in her 18 month relationship with Woods, he used a condom, always. She also claimed that Woods was the most well-endowed man that she ever had sex with, stating he was "bigger and better" than Michael Jordan.

Jaimie Grubbs came out last. She, like Jamie Jungers, claimed Woods never used a condom with her. Grubbs was nicknamed "skinny fat" by Woods because despite eating a lot of junk food, she maintained her thin physique.

In terms of the finish, Jamie Jungers came in first, as noted above. Jaimie Grubbs finished second, and took home $15,000. Jolie was given $5,000 and a 50-inch television.

NH high school teacher arrested for sexting student

Sexting is (unfortunately for parents) popular among teens and tweens. Some of the teen sexters have even been charged with child porn because of it. Many think that is unnecessary, but in this case, with a New Hampshire teacher, the door to jail seems wide open.

Melinda Dennehy, 41 and a mother of two, is an English teacher at Londonderry High School. Despite her degree, she apparently did not read, or did not understand, laws on indecent exposure, however.

Melinda Dennehy turned herself in to Londonderry police last Friday. She reportedly sent four "sexy" shots of herself to a 16-year-old male student at that high school. The student thought the pictures were "hot" enough that he forwarded the images to his friends.

According to the police, the pictures were sent two months ago. The teenager also told police that Melinda Dennehy had "continuously sent him text messages." Many of those were, he said, sexually explicit. He added that she "kissed him twice on two separate occasions" in a classroom.

According to the local Londonderry website, the charge of indecent exposure leveled at Melinda Dennehy is considered a Class B Felony. The maximum punishment is up to seven years in state prison and a fine of $4,000.

Dennehy was released on $10,000 personal recognizance bail; she is due to be arraigned in the Derry District Court on April 30, 2010. Dennehy is to have no contact with anyone under the age of sixteen and was ordered to stay away from all Londonderry School property.

Sexting is a word that combines sex and texting (or text messaging). As previously noted, child pornography charges have been brought against some teens due to the practice. In response, the question of when sexting should be a crime, particularly among consensual teens, remains an open issue.

You can listen to the school districts press conference on Melinda Dennehy here.

FAA Investigates Child Directing Pilots At JFK Airport

The FAA is investigating a report that a child apparently directed pilots last month from the air traffic control center at John F. Kennedy Airport. JFK Airport is one of the nation's busiest airports, and audio clips prove transmissions between pilots and the child occurred.

You can listen to the audio clips below. You can hear that pilots were not all that concerned with the incident, and one pilot even tells the child "awesome job." It is true that there appeared to be an adult monitoring the activity, as you can hear a voice say, "That's what you get guys when the kids are out of school."
