Look What Happened When You Took Advice on Twitter Last Night from #Crack Smoking, Drunk Mayor Rob Ford
Would you expect anything less when taking advice from a crack smoking, alcoholic individual?
Toronto Mayor Rob Ford was at it again last night giving advice out to folks for the change to daylight savings time. Do you notice the problem from the tweet below? A note to Rob Ford, it’s “Spring forward, Fall back”. The crack smoking mayor instead told folks to turn their clocks back the wrong direction last night, Oops! Well, he had a 50-50 chance of getting it right. Needless to say the Twitter universe fired back mocking Rob Ford. At least he got the change batteries in smoke alarms right.
Why do the feeling that Rob Ford would make a great segment for a DISHTV commercial … ” … Don’t take advice from a crack smoking mayor “.
Twitter - @TOMayorFord
The comical part of this, beyond the obvious, is that this tweet blunder comes day after mayor’s social media manager resigns from job.
Tom Beyer, the longest-serving staffer of Toronto Mayor Rob Ford, announced his resignation on Friday after serving as receptionist for more than three years, due to what he described to NOW Magazine writer Jonathan Goldsbie as “doctor’s orders, really.”
Among his duties, it turned out, was providing information that was served up through social media on the @TOMayorFord account — which the mayor himself has obviously never contributed directly to.
The incorrect tweet was eventually scrubbed from the account and replaced with a new, more accurate one.
- 3 third grade students were caught by another student smoking pot in the schools bathroom
CBS – San Francisco: 3rd-Graders Caught Smoking Pot In Sonora School Bathroom.
It used to be if you got caught, ‘Smokin’ in the Boy’s Room’, it was cigarettes and it was high school. However, not these days. It is the 3rd grade and POT!!! But wait, I thought so many are saying that pot is okay, it was those dastardly cigarettes that were evil. As Dana says in his commentary, be careful of what you wish for, you might just get it. So what band will be doing the next cover of The Brownville Station’s classic song and what will it be titled, ‘Tokin’ in the Elementary School Boy’s Room’?
Three third-grade students at a Sonora elementary school were busted for smoking pot in the school’s bathroom last week.
Two 8-year-olds and a 9-year-old were caught by another student, who immediately informed school administrators. Those officials then alerted local police.
The students were questioned by officers, and later released to their parents on February 27th.
Mexican Drug Lord Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman Arrested in Mazatlán, Mexico by Mexican Marines, US Marshals and DEA
Mexican drug lord, Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman, was arrested Saturday morning at 6:40 am, February 22, 2014 at a resort in the port of Mazatlan, Sinaloa, Mexico. Guzman is the head of the Sinaloa Cartel and one of the #1 drug kingpins in Mexico. Attorney General Jesus Murillo Karam said the arrest occurred without a shot being fired. He was caught with an unidentified woman. The 56 year old Guzman had been eluding capture for more than a dozen years. Mexican Marines, the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration and the US Marshals Service carried out the joint operation.
The Mexican drug lord Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman, head of the Sinaloa cartel, was arrested on Saturday February 22nd at 6 am, inside a resort in the port of Mazatlan, Sinaloa, Mexico. His capture was the result of an operation coordinated by Mexican and U.S. authorities, as it was informed this morning by The Associated Press.
A senior U.S. official said Guzman was captured alive in the city of Mazatlán, a tourist destination on the Pacific coast of Mexico. The official, who was not authorized to speak about the arrest, gave information on condition of anonymity.
He had been on the lam since escaping from prison in 2001, and no one — that we know of — came close to catching the drug lord who regularly appears on Forbes magazine list of most powerful people.
The rumor was that with that kind of money, he could be hiding anywhere in the world.
In the end, he was caught just 140 miles from the city of Culiacan, the home base for his Sinaloa drug cartel.
In Chicago, where the city’s crime commission last year named Guzman its Public Enemy No. 1 — a designation originally crafted for Al Capone — authorities praised the arrest. Chicago is among the major destinations of the cartel’s drug flow.
“The arrest of Chapo Guzman is significant,” police Superintendent Garry McCarthy said in a statement. “This is a victory, but we know the tentacles of his cartel still exist and much more work remains to be done. Demand for narcotics will still remain, so we will continue to partner with the DEA as they fight international drug trade, and we will remain focused on our efforts to eliminate the factors that drive violence in our city.”
From New York to Chicago, Texas to San Diego, Guzman and his lieutenants are named in indictments for marijuana, cocaine and heroin trafficking, as well as racketeering, money laundering, kidnapping and conspiracy to commit murder.

Oscar Award Winning Actor 46 Year old Philip Seymour Hoffman Found Dead in Manhattan NYC Apartment … Apparent Drug Overdose
PHILIP SEYMOUR HOFFMAN FOUND DEAD …
The Wall Street Journal is reporting that Oscar Award winning actor, Philip Seymour Hoffman, has been found dead in his New York City apartment. The 46 year old actor was found dead in his apartment located at 35 Bethune St. in the West Village neighborhood of Manhattan. The NY Post is reporting, Hoffman was found by a friend at approximately 11:30 am Sunday inside his Greenwich Village home. The Post is also reporting that his death was of an apparent drug overdose.
Award-winning actor Philip Seymour Hoffman was found dead Sunday afternoon in his New York City apartment, a law-enforcement official said.
The New York Police Department is investigating, and the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner to determine exact cause of death. The official said Mr. Hoffman, 46 years old, was found dead at his apartment at 35 Bethune St. in the West Village neighborhood of Manhattan.
The movie ‘Capote’ is obviously what made Philip Seymour Hoffman a house hold name; however, my favorite roles of Hoffman were George Willis Jr. in A ‘Scent of a Woman,’ Dustin Davis in Twister and Scottie J. in Boogie Nights.
UPDATE I: In much more happier times, Philip Seymour Hoffman winning Best Actor for ‘Capote’. Sadly, I cannot help but notice that two of the actors who were up for ‘Best Actor’ at the 78th Academy Awards in 2006 are now dead. Heath Ledger was also found dead in his NYC apartment in 2008.
UPDATE II: TMZ is reporting authorities found a needle in his arm.
Law enforcement sources tell TMZ … the actor was found Sunday morning inside of his Greenwich apartment … and they’re still on scene investigating.
Details surrounding his death are unclear … but the actor had struggled with drug problems … most recently checking himself into a rehab facility for heroin back in May.
Rep. Trey Radel (R-FL) Will Resign His Seat Effective Today … In Wake of Misdemeanor Possession of Cocaine in November 2013
The Politico is reporting that Rep. Trey Radel (R-FL) will resign from Congress on Monday. Reuters is confirming the story as well, that Republican U.S. Representative Trey Radel, who was charged in November with buying cocaine, plans to resign from Congress, effective Monday.
Sadly, Radel has blown his political career up his nose … Although I guess it would have been acceptable if he was caught smoking pot and Barack Obama had stated that there is no difference between cocaine and alcohol.
The first-term Republican plans to send a letter to Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) Monday, sources said.
It’s up to Florida Republican Gov. Rick Scott to schedule a special election for Radel’s seat. His southwest Florida district is solidly Republican — Mitt Romney won the district with 61 percent of the vote.
The race for Radel’s seat had begun even before he decided to resign. Republican Paige Kreegel, a former state representative, has already launched a campaign for the 19th district. Kreegel, who finished third to Radel in a 2012 primary, has drawn the support of a super PAC, which has raised $1 million with the intention of helping him win the seat.
As Hot Air opines, “most Republicans wanted him gone after the arrest. Instead, Radel insisted that he would hold his seat after going through rehab. Unless I missed a memo, there hasn’t been any unusual events surrounding his return this month. Perhaps Radel found his welcome back to the caucus chillier than Polar Vortex I or II.” Touche. Let’s hope Obamacare covers drug rehab.

More from Colorado Rocky Mountain High …
I thought we were told by the defenders of pot that it was not like alcohol? It was supposed to reduce crime and arrests according to the pro-pot folks. Looks like the authorities in Colorado are going to have a rash of DWH, driving while high. State troopers say the man who drove his car into two patrol cars this weekend, was under the influence of marijuana. Troopers say they arrested 23 year old Keith Kilbey and charged him with driving under the influence of drugs. This is only the beginning. So when will the first chapter of MAHD be formed in Colorado?
Let’s see the reaction of this law when some one behind the wheel kills someone because of being high.
Authorities in Colorado claim a 23-year-old man allegedly high on marijuana crashed into two state trooper vehicles on Saturday.
Police arrested Keith Kilbey and charged him with driving under the influence of drugs, KUSA-TV reported.
The incident unfolded in Denver around 9 p.m. Saturday evening after two state troopers had parked their cars in the left lane of an exit ramp.
Authorities were reportedly investigating a crash in the area and had put their emergency lights on before Kilbey purportedly hit their vehicles. According to KWGN, he collided with a Colorado State Patrol Crown Victoria, sending that vehicle into a Dodge Charger.
