I heard a woman complaining the other day about not being able to find sweatshirts for her kids that have hood strings. Did you know that the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission fines companies and recalls merchandise for children with hood strings or strings in the waist?
Yep. Once upon a time I was responsible for pulling merchandise of this caliber at a big box distribution center so I know all about it.
Kids have gotten these strings stuck in school bus or car doors
and have been killed or severely injured in many occurrences. Sometimes kids get them stuck on playground equipment too and hang themselves. Hood strings seem harmless but the USPSC takes these matters very seriously. There are many other items recalled for not meeting flammability requirements, choking hazards, slip hazards and jewelry with excessive amounts of lead or cadmium. Some of the recalls boarder on crazy, Old Navy has a recent recall of some aqua shoes (shoes
commonly wore in the water) they had two reports of children falling in these shoes while wearing them on slippery surfaces such as hardwood floors. Justice has a recall of beaded curtains right now as they have reports that children become entangled in the beads. So there you have it.
I stumbled upon a video online that really caught my attention. A man found out another man was having sex with his underage daughter. He drives to his house and instead of kicking the shit out of him convinces him to lay down and then he spanks him until the man is in so much
pain he gets up claiming that he won’t be able to sit. I can’t believe this
video hasn’t gone viral yet. It ranks right up there with the father who shot up his daughter’s computer for saying nasty things about him. You’ve got to love this brand of cowboy justice. No harm done, point delivered clearly, no police involved and at the end of the day justice prevails. Maybe public spankings would solve a lot of the injustices
in the world today.
The story about Randy Travis almost sounds like a county song.
After crashing his 1998 Trans Am a few days ago, he was found naked, lying in the road. Drunk and combative he threatened to kill the officers that arrested him. But what most people don’t know is that Randy is going through some rough times. His wife of 19 years was also his manager for 30 years and there is a lawsuit in the works where he claims she tried to ruin his career.
Now would be the perfect time for him to write songs, not live them.
Have a great day!
