Beware of Garbage Trucks
by David J. Pollay

How often do you let other people's nonsense change your mood? Do you let a bad driver, rude waiter, curt boss, or an insensitive employee ruin your day? Unless you're the Terminator, for an instant you're probably set back on your
heels. However, the mark of a successful person is how quickly one can get back their focus on what's important.

Sixteen years ago I learned this lesson. I learned it in the back of a New York City taxi cab.Here's what happened.

I hopped in a taxi, and we took off for Grand Central Station. We were driving in the right lane when, all of a sudden, a black car jumped out of a parking space right in front of us. My taxi driver slammed on his breaks, skidded, and missed the other car's back end by just inches!

The driver of the other car, the guy who almost caused a big accident, whipped his head around and he started yelling bad words at us. My taxi driver just smiled and waved at the guy. And I mean, he was friendly. So, I said, "Why did you just do that? This guy almost ruined your car and sent us to the hospital!"

And this is when my taxi driver told me what I now call, "The Law of the Garbage Truck."

"Many people are like garbage trucks. They run around full of garbage, full of frustration, full of anger, and full of disappointment. As their garbage piles up, they need a place to dump it. And if you let them, they'll dump it on you.

When someone wants to dump on you, don't take it personally. You just smile, wave, wish them well, and move on. You'll be happy you did."

So this was it: The "Law of the Garbage Truck." I started thinking, how often do I let Garbage Trucks run right over me? And how often do I take their garbage and spread it to other people: at work, at home, on the streets? It was that day I said, "I'm not going to do it anymore."

I began to see garbage trucks.

Like in the movie "The Sixth Sense," the little boy said, "I see Dead People."

Well, now "I see Garbage Trucks." I see the load they're carrying. I see them coming to drop it off. And like my Taxi Driver, I don't make it a personal thing; I just smile, wave, wish them well, and I move on.

Sheesh. Next…a Taser Shot in the Potty Mouth

As a former flower child who once considered all police as “pigs” (not that I’m proud of that), I must soften my suspicions about a trend of late that disturbs me.

I mean is it just me or are the police of late getting a bit too quick with the taser? And if it isn’t a taser they seem so eager to apply, what the hell is this about arresting a woman for cursing at a stopped up toilet?

Dawn Herb, 31, of Scranton, Pennsylvania, was charged after an off duty police officer overheard her swear at an overflowing toilet.

Officer Patrick Gilman told the hearing he heard someone yell: "Are you f***ing retarded? Get me the f***ing mop."

Patrolman Gilman said he then yelled, "Watch your mouth", to which the person replied: "F*** off."

He then called Patrolman Gerald Tallo, who was on duty at the time, who charged Ms Herb after she admitted cursing at her toilet.

The article linked is not clear re where the woman was when she was doing the cursing but duh, the toilet was stopped up. I’m thinking she was in her bathroom.

Which makes me think that perhaps her words were heard out the window by passers-by, perhaps. Maybe a neighbor heard her through thin walls?

Whatever the case, a judge later threw the case out, declaring the woman had a right to free speech.

What boggles my mind is this off duty police officer who obviously has no life and evidently quite enjoys the power of his badge a bit too much.

Law and order is one thing. A bunch of renegade bullies armed with tasers and arrest power is quite another.

Speaking of Bullies

I’d posted a link to an article about my fave writer, Mark Steyn, on this Blog…HERE. There was an error in my tease in that the tease stated that Steyn had been arrested. Steyn has not been arrested by, per this National Review link, Steyn was the target of a complaint filed by fine, proud Canadian Muslims who, ahem, didn’t like what the man said about them:
On December 4, the Canadian Islamic Congress announced that it had filed a complaint with three of Canada’s “human rights commissions” over an October 2006 article that Steyn had published in Maclean’s, Canada’s leading news weekly. “This article completely misrepresents Canadian Muslims’ values, their community, and their religion,” said Faisal Joseph, an attorney representing the complainants, in a press release. “We feel that it is imperative to challenge Maclean’s biased portrayal of Muslims in order to protect Canadian multiculturalism and tolerance.”

These are people who riot over cartoons for God’s sake.

There is an advantage to being a humble Blogger read by maybe two to three people every day. Because of those sensitive Muslim males read just how little I think of them and their childish antics for sure they’d be hauling me before some liberal commission or another.

The Muslims are famous for this tactic. That’s because they WANT to riot over cartoons but should those with the gift of words dare to point out their ludicrousness, well someone might agree with us.

Not to mention the Muslim controlled governments who issue two hundred lashes to victims of gang rape and hey, how about the proud Muslim fathers who strangle their daughters for refusing to wear Muslim head gear?

For sure they don’t want the scribes in our culture pointing out the illogic of their ways so they do what they must…they accuse you of hate crimes and haul you before some commission or another.

It’s like the story of the emperor with no clothes. We should all be too scared to point out what our common sense tells us is just plain not right.

The Drive-By Media’s Juiciest Story of the Week

Heh. This is a media story and folks, the media is loving it.

Well hey, hey, I’m enjoying the show as well. But for the Drive-by’s…the arrest of hot babe Alycia Lane is their dream come true story.

Undisputed is that early Sunday morning, Lane's taxi was caught behind a slow-moving car - which became the target of repeated honking by Lane's cabbie.

That's when police say an intoxicated male (who may or may not have been a local DJ) jumped out of the taxi and confronted the people in the other car, who turned out to be police. Lane allegedly got out of the taxi and began taking pictures with her iPhone.

Alycia Lane

According to the police report, she pressed the phone against the face of one of the officers, who then grabbed Lane's arm. Lane allegedly screamed, "I don't give a f--- who you are, I am a reporter, you f-----g dyke," and struck the officer in the face. She was arrested and charged with second-degree assault, to which she pleaded not guilty. Lane's lawyer denies she knew she was dealing with police and also that she struck the female cop.

Every night I hear a tease from whatever show is on my TV to the effect that there’s MORE details on the Alycia Lane story.

Well dang, the woman’s out with a hunky DJ, she’s a babe, there’s honking at cars in the middle of the night, there’s Iphones shoved in off-duty cops’ faces.


All I need is popcorn and I’ll sit back and enjoy this story as much as the Drive-bys.

Natalee Holloway-CASE CLOSED

Well hey, they say that the so-called “new and incriminating” evidence against the fine Cowpile brothers and the very, very fine Urine Vanofpoop will be released soon:

ORANJESTAD, Aruba (AP) -- Prosecutors on Thursday plan to divulge evidence they gathered over the last eight months against three young men who will not be charged in the disappearance of Natalee Holloway because it was not sufficient to charge anyone.

Prosecutors will detail what they had touted as "new incriminating evidence" at a news conference at the Aruban prime minister's office, two days after they dismissed their case against the suspects - a Dutch college student and two Surinamese brothers.

Evidently yon ladies and gems, these Aruban jokers were pulling our collective legs. For they’ve done absolutely the WORST job investigating a crime of any alleged police department on this planet. Then, to make matters horribly worse, the prosecutors allege that they have “new” evidence regarding the disappearance of Natalee Holloway. Natalie disappeared from her group in June of 2005, a high school group on a graduation vacation in Aruba.

Since the new and incriminating evidence didn’t pan out, The Cowpile brothers and Urine were once again let loose, the whole bunch of them with one free murder to share. Well heck, it was only a throwaway American girl.

Plan your vacations accordingly, yon ladies and gems.

Does pathetic Aruba really deserve any more American vacation bucks?

The Baltimore “Hate Crime” Flying Below the Radar

Nine juveniles were arrested on a Baltimore bus for beating up a white woman.

The woman’s picture below.

Picture of Kreager woman beat up on baltimore bus

It would seem these fine nine juveniles have went out and hired lawyers so let’s take a guess and assert that somebody’s guilty of something.


Attorneys representing two of the 9 juveniles arrested in the MTA bus beating case say neither the 14 year old nor the 15 year old were involved in the beating of Sarah Kreager.

Attorney Quinton Herbert says there has been a rush to judgement in this case. Herbert says his client was simply identified among a group of students of similar size and ages all wearing the school uniform assigned by the Robert Poole Middle School.

The video cam in this Baltimore bus just happened to be busted that day, not that Baltimore doesn’t tax its citizens to the poor house and the cameras on the buses should be working, silly us.

See, the “attacked” are white, while the attackers were black.

Now understand very clearly here that this humble Blogger read by two to three people every day does NOT believe in the notion of hate crimes. A crime is a crime and whether it’s committed due to hate or for monetary gain is no matter. The crime has a penalty and that penalty should be administered based on the crime, not the reasoning behind the crime.

This case, however, is a prime example of why the notion of hate crimes is ridiculous. Mostly because, ahem, NINE black youths jump on one white woman? What if this dynamic was reversed…ie NINE white youths jump on and beat up one black woman? Wouldn’t BOTH of these crimes be a HATE crime under the current statute?

Yet hate crime arrests and prosecution doesn’t work that way. So far Baltimore investigators have made no indication whether this case will be tried as a hate crime although you can bet your first-born that if it was 9 white youths beating up a black woman we’d know right away that the case would be a hate crime.

All of the details about this crime are not known and of course there’s the broken bus camera in a city with property tax rates driving out its citizens by the dozens on a daily basis. I’ve no idea what caused the original altercation and scuttle butt has it that the victim is herself not so innocent.

By me, it’s all about this hate crime stupidity. This case will be heard after the first of the year.

We’ll be on it.

FOCUS ON Natalee Holloway
In May of 2005, Natalee Holloway, a recent graduate just barely of age, joined some of her school mates on a much-anticipated graduation trip to the island paradise of Aruba.

Came the time to fly back home, Natalee was nowhere to be found.

The last time Natalee was seen she was leaving with three locals, one Deepak Kalpoe and his brother Satish. Also along was Joran Vandersloot, a local kid known to frequent Aruba's night spots trolling for pretty American girls.

For two and a half year the Aruban and Dutch investigators fooled around with this case, "arresting" many suspects, including those three Aruban brats, then letting them go.

Suddenly, in November of 2007 Joran and the Kalpoe brothers are arrested. An announcement by Aruban authorities came with news of the arrests that "new and incriminating" evidence had been found.

Will justice ever come for Natalee Holloway?
