Today in Cincinnati a very unfortunate event occurred which showed the stupidity of humans and the privilege that we think we have as humans. Today at the Cincinnati Zoo a 4-year old boy, who was not attended by his mother, fell into the gorilla’s enclosure. The staff apparently was “forced” to shoot the animal because of the close proximity of the animal and the child, I suppose? I’m not sure but this was heart breaking.

It really can’t get any better then him as commander and cheif in the white house.
This gracious act is one of the numerous things that shows why this strong man needs to be in the office for a THIRD term. Don’t you agree? Who wouldn’t be grateful for a second chance in life, no matter what you did, second chances can make all the difference. Having a president who sees people as people and struggles as struggles with no prejudice is so comforting. I know you think of yourself more than a number, right? These 58 men and women were nonviolent drug offenders and have done the necessary tasks in order to receive a clean slate.
It is no surprise to anyone that the majority of the people in jail are behind bars for minor things and are also minorities. This president never ceases to amaze the world with the little hints of genuine concern for the people of this nation. Whether you agree with him or not, he is persevering. Barack Obama is the only president in history who lives up to the slogan of America “In God we trust”, while many others have used it in vain. Barack Obama has come, he has seen, he has loved, and he has conquered!
Despite what you choose to see or believe that fats remain the same. Thank you Obama from the bottom of my heart from everything you have done for us! Hate him or love him you are all still watching him!

18 year-old Christal McGee likes to Snapchat
18 year-old Christal McGee had a “Brilliant” idea to snap and drive testing Snapchat’s speed filter so that she could get a trophy for her “accomplishment. She crashed and injured two civilians injuring herself as well in the process. Don’t be like 18 year-old Christal McGee.
Earlier this week McGee was behind the wheel of her father’s C230 Mercedes Benz drving at 107mp before crashing into the gray Mitsubishi being driven by Uber driver Maynard Wentworth. The lawsuit alleges that McGee was too distracted by her to notice Wentworth’s appearance. Mr. Wentworth’s lawyers have stated that their client had suffered serious brain damage, that he requires assistance to walk resulting in him having to spend five weeks in intensive care and that he is unable to work.
Snapchat is not specifically commented directly regarding this specific case but did release this statement, “No Snap is more important than someone’s safety. We actively discourage our community from using the speed filter while driving, including by displaying a ‘Do NOT Snap and Drive’ warning message in the app itself.”
The company’s terms of service that can be found on their website clearly states, “Do not use our Services in a way that would distract you from obeying traffic or safety laws and never put yourself or others in harm’s way just to capture a Snap.”
Shortly after the accident McGee posted this picture to her Snapchat
Since this accident, personal injury lawyers across the country have been trying to capitalize on this and soliciting clients asking people if they’ve been in a car accident that may have involved Snapchat or any other social media app.One thing is for sure social media is not for everyone!
On January 20th, 2009 the White House became inhabited by its 44th and first black president. His name was Barack Hussein Obama. America was ready for change. He defeated Democratic hopeful Hillary Clinton in 2007 and in 2008 went on to defeat Republican John McCAin making Black History and sating America’s demand all in one day.
His presidency though has not been a bed of roses! During his first year in office, his citizenship was questioned, his race was questioned, his ability to be bipartisan with regards to politics and specifically to racism in america was questioned and with dignity and professionalism Obama wore that megabillion dollar smile and his response to his critics was “Yes I can,” that was 8 years ago.
Last night at the White House Correspondent’s Dinner, President Obama delivered his final speech and in Obama fashion jeered, “It is an honor to be here at my last and perhaps the last White House Correspondents’ Dinner,you all look great. The end of the Republic has never looked better. ” Obama was stacking bodies with the shots he was firing!
The President’s speech was laden with shade, humor, sardonism at its highest, but most importantly sincerity and a relativity of sadness that we could all relate to, he was in good spirits though and ready for the night. After his intro he started off roasting himself with self-deprecating jokes about his appearance and how his eight year term had given him his ‘salt and pepper tresses’. Eight years ago, I was a young man, full of idealism and vigor, and look at me now. I am gray and grizzled, just counting down the days ’til my death panel.” He went on to speak about the disparaging racial joke between Hillary Clinton and New York Mayor Joe Diblasio apologizing for his tardiness, “I was running on C.P.T. which stands for “jokes that white people should not make.” It’s a tip for you, Jeff.
The commander in chief wasn’t done yet though, he reloaded that 12 gauge and kept on firing, blasting the GOP’s Chairman Reince Priebus. “Glad to see you that you feel that you’ve earned a night off”, he jeered, Congratulations on all your success! The Republican Party, the nomination process, it’s all going great; keep it up.” the crowd was in uproar!
As his address was coming to a close the President alluded that he had said all that he was going to say, you could almost hear the disappointment in the crowd, but he was just playing! The commander is known for his colorful humor and this crowd was not exempt from being his victims! In my best Vanessa Williams sultry voice he saved the best for last! It was time to give Trump his last 15 minutes (he was not in attendance), but after the 2011 sizing up that Obama spewed at him, i think that was the smart thing for him to do!
Obama noted Trump’s absence and he didn’t let him off easy, “Although I am a little hurt that he’s not here tonight. We had so much fun the last time and it is surprising. You’ve got a room full of reporters, celebrities, cameras, and he says no? Is this dinner too tacky for The Donald? What could he possibly be doing instead? Is he at home, eating a Trump Steak; tweeting out insults to Angela Merkel, what’s he doing?
As american’s had become accustomed to the president’s jovial personality, his sharp shooting words and piercing barbs, the president delivered in his half hour speech, but was time to say goodbye. “Anyway, here we are. My eighth and final appearance at this unique event, next year at this time, someone else will be standing here in this very spot and it’s anyone guess who she will be.” the president quipped, and with that, I just have two more words to say;Obama out. He then dropped the microphone!
If there’s one great thing that you can say about America’s 44th president (and there are many), you can definitely say that america will never see another president that was transparently honest about who he was. Obama was the 44th president of the United States of America, he is Michelle Obama’s husband, he is a black american and he is “Simply the best!’
After months of anticipation, Drake has dropped his 4th studio album entitled Views. The Canadian rapper has been teasing fans and music connoisseurs for quite some time about the album’s official title and release date.
Several weeks prior to the album’s release, Drake introduced fans to two singles from the album. The single entitled “Pop Style”, featuring Kanye West and Jay-Z, serves an eerie melody underlining the strong lyrical prowess of Jay-Z and Kanye who are rightfully credited on the song as “the throne.” While the second single “One Dance” featuring Wiz Kid provides the perfect afro-punk melody for approaching summer. These distinct singles left fans eager to lay ear to the album and the wait is finally over!
