VIDEO: United Broke My Guitar - Hilarious!

VIDEO: United Broke My Guitar - Hilarious!

I don't know if all this is true, but the video is hilarious...
A musician named Dave Carroll recently had difficulty with United Airlines. Dave spent over 9 months trying to get United to pay for damages caused by baggage handlers to his custom Taylor guitar.

During his final exchange with the United Customer Relations Manager, he stated that he was left with no choice other than to create a music video for YouTube exposing their lack of cooperation.
The Manager responded: "Good luck with that one, pal."

Nebraska senator compares police to terrorist

A Nebraska state senator compared American police to Islamic terrorists and suggested he'd shoot a cop if only he had a weapon.

State Sen. Ernie Chambers said during a legislative hearing on March 20 that you don't have to go halfway around the world to find an ISIS mentality. It can be found in America because police terrorize blacks every day.

He was referring to the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria, which has beheaded journalists and brutally executed Westerners and others.

Keystone pipeline firm files for eminent domain against Nebraska landowners

TransCanada Corp., the Canadian company behind the Keystone XL pipeline, filed eminent domain proceedings against an estimated 90 Nebraska landowners Tuesday to secure the right to build the controversial project across their property.

“Today we initiated these actions in the state of Nebraska, but that does not mean we’re done working toward a voluntary agreement,” said Andrew Craig, TransCanada’s land manager for Keystone projects. “Our goal today is that, over the next six months, we are able to address any concerns they have about the project.... The current landowner will continue to own the land.”

TransCanada’s legal filings are an effort to gain what is called an easement — the right to construct the pipeline on private land that others own. They are the latest step in a years-long fight over the project, which cannot go forward without President Obama’s approval.

Cops kill "COPS" in heartland accident

I would suspect everyone here is familiar with the show "COPS". I haven't seen too much coverage in media of this event so i thought I would share what I have heard and or know. The program known as "COPS" has been filming in Omaha NE since June of 2014 and has enough footage to cover six or so episodes. The other night it all went wrong. According to testimony from OPD, the audio engineer for "COPS" lost his life covering a armed robbery of a Wendys fast food resturaunt.

DOJ investigates Norfolk parade float critical of Obama

The U.S. Department of Justice has sent a member of its Community Relations Service team to investigate a Nebraska parade float that criticized President Obama.

A Fourth of July parade float featured at the annual Independence Day parade in Norfolk sparked criticism when it depicted a zombie-like figure resembling Mr. Obama standing outside an outhouse, which was labeled the “Obama Presidential Library.”

The Nebraska Democratic Party called the float one of the “worst shows of racism and disrespect for the office of the presidency that Nebraska has ever seen.”

How to Deal with a Bully According to a Nebraska Elementary School

Fifth grade students at Zeman Elementary School in Lincoln, Neb., were recently sent home with a “flyer” outlining how they should handle bullies. The instructions were apparently deemed so ridiculous by parents that the school district quickly issued an apology and the “inaccurate information” was pulled.

That was after the nine “rules” for dealing with bullies went viral, of course.

Here are some of the more questionable ones:

Today, A Nebraska Judge agreed with opponents' arguments that law passed in 2011 improperly delegated the decision-making power to Nebraska Gov.

Ben Sasse speaks out on the unconstitutionality of Obama's unilateral changes to the Affordable Care Act (Obamacare) this week.

23 votes caught using pirated software code has just been exposed as being built with pirated software code.

Obama administration programmers actually stole software code from a UK company, then tried to cover their tracks by deleting author attributions and software copyright notices.

Will DHS now seize and shut it down for committing piracy?

Since the government SHUTDOWN, let's take it back?

These scare tactics are not working on me. I'm sure the rest of you here feel the same way. What can we do, as "We The People" to activate now and take this thing back? Let the rEVOLution begin now. Then I think, is this what they want? Do they want to see if we are compliant? ....All of these questions, but all of this opportunity was just begging me to post this here today. I'm not sure I've ever posted before, but used to be an avid chatter.

Lesson from Kindergarten Homeschool: "The Computer Built By a 5-Year-Old"

The following is an excerpt from the description of a live Ebay auction listing.

One day, Logan heard me mention the Raspberry Pi -- a credit-card sized computer -- to a friend. He heard me mention this, and he went back to his laptop and started looking up YouTube videos on it. For four weeks, Logan told me all about the Raspberry Pi and what you could do with it, until I finally broke down and ordered one. Really, I was curious about it, but it was also to shut him up.
