MAKING THINGS RIGHT FOR LITTLE JOHNNY!

HE NOW HAS A NEW SKATEBOARD TO HIT THE STREETS!

Ok, his name is not really little Johnny – but it would be cool if it was. I was driving down my street last Saturday evening when I realized I ran over something. My neighbor was standing outside of her home so I couldn’t just drive off. I asked her nervously what did I hit and immediately a kid standing next to her said it was his brother’s skating board. He then said don’t worry about it. I apologized and my neighbor told me she’s warned the neighborhood kids about leaving their skateboards out in the streets. She also told me don’t worry about it. However, I felt crappy that I’d just stolen a kids joy. So, being a good neighbor I decided to go to Walmart and get little Johnny – actually little Aidan a new skateboard. When I gave the new board to Aidan’s brother Sunday morning, he rushed down the street to take it to the new owner. I thought that was that. Then when I came out of my house a hour later there was little Johnny – ok, little Aidan – but Johnny sounds better. He had a note in his hand thanking me for his new skateboard. I really felt good about making things right with little Johnny – ok, ok, little Aidan. Skate on neighborhood kid!

TUESDAY THE PRESIDENT WILL DELIVER THE MESSAGE ABOUT THE END OF THE WAR IN IRAQ!

A LETTER FROM THE WHITE HOUSE TO THE AMERICAN PEOPLE!

Good evening,

Tomorrow evening at 8 p.m. EDT, I will address the nation from the Oval Office about the end of the war in Iraq.

We are at a truly historic moment in our nation’s history. After more than seven years, our combat mission in Iraq will end tomorrow.

As both a candidate and President, I promised to bring the war in Iraq to a responsible end. Now, we are taking an important step forward in delivering on that promise. Since I took office, we’ve brought nearly 100,000 U.S. troops home from Iraq, millions of pieces of equipment have been removed, and hundreds of bases have been closed or transferred to Iraqi Security Forces.

Our combat mission in Iraq is ending, but our commitment to an Iraq that is sovereign, stable and self-reliant continues. As our mission in Iraq changes, 50,000 U.S. troops will remain in Iraq to advise and assist the Iraqi Security Forces as they assume full responsibility for the security of their country on September 1. We will forge a strong partnership with an Iraq that still faces enduring challenges.

For nearly a decade, we have been a nation at war. The war in Iraq has at times divided us. But one thing I think all Americans can agree on is that our brave men and women in uniform are truly America’s finest. They have put their lives on the line and endured long separations from their family and loved ones.

All Americans owe our troops, veterans and military families a debt of gratitude for their outstanding service to our nation. Over the past few days, thousands of Americans have taken part in our Saluting Service in Iraq effort on WhiteHouse.gov, sending their messages of thanks and support to our troops.

Take a minute right now to see what your fellow Americans have to say and add a message of your own:

Supporting our troops and military families is the responsibility of all Americans. My Administration is doing everything in its power to ensure that our troops, veterans and their families have the support they need as they serve, and the care and opportunities they need to realize their dreams when they return home.

I hope you will join me in welcoming our troops home and showing your gratitude for their heroic service.

Sincerely,

President Barack Obama

A BANK ROBBERY AND CAR CHASE!

JOSEPH WADE WALKER IS NOW BEHIND BARS!

Press Release: Harris County Sheriff’s deputies arrested a bank robbery suspect on Friday, August 27, after a car pursuit that spanned 20 minutes and 30 miles.

HCSO patrol deputies responded to a call about a robbery in progress at the Woodforest National Bank located inside Kroger at the 15000 block of Champion Forest Drive.


A bank employee stated that the suspect approached his teller station asking for change. While the employee retrieved the change, the suspect put a note on the counter instructing that money be placed on the counter.


The suspect then took the money and left the store.

After activating the security alarm, the bank employee followed the suspect out of the store, got in his car and followed him until deputies caught up to their location. That’s when a chase ensued.


After traveling over 30 miles, the suspect lost control of his vehicle and came to a stop in a wooded area near the 3500 block of Hirschfield Road. Deputy Daniel Kerrigan ordered the suspect out of the vehicle and took him into custody.


The suspect, identified as Joseph Wade Walker, was released into the FBI’s custody. He has been charged with evading arrest/detention with a vehicle and robbery/threats.

ROGER CLEMENS GOES TO WASHINGTON!

HE WILL LIKELY SAY NOT GUILTY!

On this trip to Washington, Roger Clemens will be in a courtroom, not in Congress. His defiant stance is expected to remain the same, even if his statement is much shorter.

Something along the lines of, “Not guilty.”

The seven-time Cy Young Award winner is scheduled to be arraigned Monday in the nation’s capital on a six-count indictment alleging he lied to Congress when he said he never used steroids or human growth hormone.

In what should be a short court appearance, Clemens will appear before U.S. District Judge Reggie Walton. If convicted on all charges, he could face up to 30 years in prison and a $1.5 million fine, though under U.S. sentencing guidelines, he would probably face no more than 15 to 21 months in prison.

All signs point toward him fighting. He came to Congress after being mentioned repeatedly in the Mitchell Report — the damning breakdown of the sport’s steroid problem released in 2007.

In front of a House committee the next year, Clemens said: “Let me be clear. I have never taken steroids or HGH.” Before his indictment was handed down Aug. 19, Clemens was offered a plea deal that he turned down, and afterward, he showed no signs of backing down.

“I look forward to challenging the Governments accusations, and hope people will keep an open mind until trial,” Clemens wrote on Twitter after the indictment. “I appreciate all the support I have been getting. I am happy to finally have my day in court.”

His day in court figures to be one of many in the near future for some of baseball’s biggest names — now sullied by steroid-related accusations. All-time home run king Barry Bonds is scheduled to go on trial in March on charges of lying to a federal grand jury when he said he never knowingly used performance-enhancing drugs.

The 48-year-old Clemens is charged with three counts of making false statements, two counts of perjury and one count of obstruction of Congress.

YOU CAN LIVE LIKE YOU’RE PRESIDENT BARACK OBAMA!

Here’s your chance to own the White House. And you don’t need to win a single vote. A replica of the White House is for sale in the Lawrenceville, Georgia, area. The 13,000-square foot structure used to house the failed American United Bank. While it lacks an Oval Office or Rose Garden, it does have a drive-up teller’s window. It’s zoned commercial, so a law office or tattoo parlor could move into the White House.

SLIM THUG BEEFING WITH RICK ROSS ON TWITTER!

IT’S THE BATTLE BETWEEN THE BOSSES – ON THE INTERNET?

Hip Hop Gossip: Rappers Rick Ross and Slim Thug had a somewhat intense exchange via Twitter.

Slim Thug apparently didn’t like Rick Ross’ line “She dated Slim Thug/ Now she f**k with me/ She finally made it to the biggest boss, luckily,” from his song “King Boss,” and decided to take some shots at Ricky Rozay.

“Just threw ricky rozay CD out the roof of the coupe,” Slim tweeted. “Haters get no play in my ride.”

He also tweeted: “I reached out [to] ask if it was a diss. If it was old he shoulda just sad dat but no response to me mean he still feel like dat.”

Ross responded succinctly with: “Realn*ggas pick up phones. A boss would kno better #trillsh*t”

And real MCs just make dis records and be done with it.
