Those words used to scare the bejesus outta me when I was a kid. Because that’s what my grandmother, who raised me, used to say to me when I was a brat. If I could understand her that is. (we’ll get to that later)
Now I have to thank fellow blogger John Roycroft for reminding me of those days.
(might want to check out the blog John wrote that inspired me to write today’s blog at) http://newnanbull.com/2014/09/14/adrian-peterson-and-the-east-coweta-high-school/
Thanks John….now I have to go back into therapy again….damn! (only kidding)

Cold chills ran down my spine when I saw the Twitter photo of the cell phone image taken in front of the White House that night. My fears were reenforced with the video image of that protester carrying the ISIS sign while marching in the streets with rioters in Ferguson Missouri.
Then yesterday Judicial Watch reported this news:
Islamic terrorist groups are operating in the Mexican border city of Ciudad Juarez and planning to attack the United States with car bombs or other vehicle born improvised explosive devices (VBIED). High-level federal law enforcement, intelligence and other sources have confirmed to Judicial Watch that a warning bulletin for an imminent terrorist attack on the border has been issued. Agents across a number of Homeland Security, Justice and Defense agencies have all been placed on alert and instructed to aggressively work all possible leads and sources concerning this imminent terrorist threat.
Specifically, the government sources reveal that the militant group Islamic State of Iraq and Greater Syria (ISIS) is confirmed to now be operating in Juarez, a famously crime-infested narcotics hotbed situated across from El Paso, Texas. Violent crimes are so rampant in Juarez that the U.S. State Department has issued a number of travel warnings for anyone planning to go there. The last one was issued just a few days ago.
Intelligence officials have picked up radio talk and chatter indicating that the terrorist groups are going to “carry out an attack on the border,” according to one JW source. “It’s coming very soon,” according to another high-level source, who clearly identified the groups planning the plots as “ISIS and Al Qaeda.” An attack is so imminent that the commanding general at Ft. Bliss, the U.S. Army post in El Paso, is being briefed, JW’s sources say. The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) did not respond to multiple inquiries from Judicial Watch, both telephonic and in writing, about this information.
The disturbing inside intelligence comes on the heels of news reports revealing that U.S. intelligence has picked up increased chatter among Islamist terror networks approaching the 13th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks. While these terrorists reportedly plan their attack just outside the U.S., President Obama admits that “we don’t have a strategy yet” to combat ISIS. “I don’t want to put the cart before the horse,” the commander-in-chief said this week during a White House press briefing. “I think what I’ve seen in some of the news reports suggest that folks are getting a little further ahead of what we’re at than what we currently are.”
While Barack Obama refuses to close our southern border, thousands of illegal aliens are allowed to come in and be transported to cities across our country. Is there any doubt in your mind that ISIS terrorists, or any terrorist group for that matter hasn’t already entered our country?

Here in my home town of Newnan, Georgia something terribly bad has happened to an educator. He has been accused of possessing less than an ounce marijuana. Now that doesn’t seem like such a big deal. I mean we’re talking about a misdemeaner charge here. He wasn’t charged with distribution, just had a very small amount found in his home.
Johnny Holloway, the former chorus teacher at Evans Middle School, had less than one ounce of marijuana in his possession when police searched his home, according to the police report.
Newnan Police Deputy Chief Rodney Riggs said during the week of Aug. 17, Newnan Police officers “developed information” that Holloway was in possession of marijuana at his residence. The police department obtained a search warrant on Monday and executed it around 1 p.m. that day.resigned from his job based on accusations that he was involved in illegal drug possesion.
Newnan Police Deputy Chief Rodney Riggs said during the week of Aug. 17, Newnan Police officers “developed information” that Holloway was in possession of marijuana at his residence. The police department obtained a search warrant on Monday and executed it around 1 p.m. that day.
According to Riggs, less than once ounce of marijuana was found at Holloway’s home. Holloway was not there at the time of the search, and an arrest warrant was issued for him possessing less than one ounce of marijuana, which is a misdemeanor.
Holloway resigned from the school system on Monday.
In a letter sent home to parents of Evans Middle School students, Coweta County School Superintendent Dr. Steve Barker said the school system had recently heard concerns from parents and students about Holloway’s professional conduct, “including the potential use of illegal substances.”
“Following his resignation, Mr. Holloway was charged on Tuesday for possession of marijuana,” said Barker. “Because this matter is still under investigation, we cannot comment further at this time. We regret this has occurred.”
Well as you might imagine, Mr Holloway has quite a following of support. Most of the comments in the Times-Herald story are a display of shock and disbelief that Mr Holloway was arrested. People are confused as to why his home was searched after he resigned. There are many unanswered questions surrounding this case and folks will just have to wait until the investigation is over to find out what exactly happened.
Now when you read the letter from the Coweta County School Superintendent Dr. Steve Barker, it leads one to believe that it was no secret to at least a few parents and students that Mr Holloway might have been doing something unethical. This leads me to believe there may have been an investigation already going on leading up to his arrest.
Lets just suppose that the drug investigators received a tip that Mr Holloway was participating in some illegal drug activity. Based on what we already know in the letter from the School Superintendent, several parents and students had expressed concerns about Holloway’s conduct. Maybe he was getting high with one or more students. We just don’t know yet. What I do know is that law enforcment will not execute a search warrant on a residence unless a judge is convinced it will result in an arrest. So lets say maybe was a CI was involved. A confidential informant, working for the police, that was with Holloway in his home and witnessed the marijuana and knew there would be drugs in the house on a particular day. Maybe he was selling to students and on the day of the search they only found a small amount. Maybe Holloway was outed by someone at the school that he was under suspicion and he was asked to resign. There are a whole lot of maybes and everyone has their own ideas of what really happened.
I think I have a fairly good idea what may have happened. If I’m right, then many of Holloways supporters are going to be left hurt and confused and very disappointed. Here are two simple scenarios that I believe may have happened:
Holloway was involved in casual marijuana use with one or more students over a period of time. No harm intended. He got a little too careless. People began to talk and it eventually got the attention of school officials. The school notified the resource officer, who in turn reported the information to the drug task force. A student came forward and admitted to being with Mr Holloway in his home while marijuana was present. This person, the confidential informant, reported back to investigators and a search warrant was issued.
On the Monday prior to the warrant being served, Holloway was brought before school officials and was asked to take a drug test. In fear of being tested positive and getting fired, he chose to resign. Meanwhile, investigators were preparing for the warrant and quite possibly the school was unaware that Holloway was going to be arrested on Tuesday.
Another possibility is that Mr Holloway’s vehicle had been recorded as being a frequent visitor to known drug houses. Did you know that if your vehicle is seen visiting a house that is under investigation for illegal drugs your tag is recorded? Maybe something as simple as that got him in trouble. He may even have been video taped by undercover agents buying marijuana.
The bottom line here is that Holloway got caught in possession of a small amount of marijuana and now his reputation has been smeared. People are crying that he was set up, it was unfair, or any number of other excuses for his behavior. It does not matter how good a teacher he was, what matters is that Mr Holloway made some pretty bad choices in his life and now he is faced with the consequences of those choices. Students who looked up to this teacher may learn a valuable lesson when this is all over. A lesson on how important it is to make the right decisions and how the consequences of those decisions can affect the rest of your life.
On a side note. I personally believe that casual use of marijuana should be legal. Alcohol kills more people and its use destroys more families than marijuana ever has. Alcohol is the true gateway drug, not marijuana. It most certainly should be legalized for medical use. Until the laws in the state of Georgia are passed legalizing it’s use, I will continue to support our law enforcement community in their actions. We are a country of laws, and just because you’re a nice guy and everyone likes you doesn’t give you a pass when it comes to breaking the law and violating the trust of children that look up to you as a role model.-JRoycroft

Just saw on the local news that Sams is already selling Christmas decorations. I know that it’s all about profits, and I have no objection to making a profit, but dayam! Can we please get through Labor Day without this bogus Christmas bullshit at the retail level? You know, it’s bad enough many businesses won’t allow employees to greet with a “Merry Christmas” and are selling those stupid “Holiday Trees,” but then they have no problem shoving Christmas in our faces in August.
I’m beyond sick and disgusted that a classless bunch of politically correct progs have all but hijacked Christmas. My two little girls are growing up in a world full of insensitive cry babies that seem to believe that the world evolves around them. We now live in a society where people think they have a right not to get their feelings hurt. Guess what. I don’t care if you’re rich, poor, gay, fat, ugly, ghetto black, trailer trash white or a retard. Yes I said retard. Bite me. We all have the exact same rights. I don’t care about your feelings. Cry me a river. Oh, and I won’t buy your holiday tree, and if you wish me happy holidays you can kiss my privileged white upper middle class ass. JRoycroft
