Certified “Mope Catcher” Chief Oliver of the Brimfield Police Department has a few words for Kanye West after the rapper compared himself to police officers and soldiers in the military. He took to the Brimfield PD’s official Facebook page where he proceeded to lay into Kanye with extreme prejudice.
Here is Chief Oliver’s full statement:
Dear Kanye West,
I am honored to be writing such an important star. I am a mere Internet sensation. I’m not sure I am worthy to address you, although the Huffington Post did say I was “Humorous and Insanely Popular.” I don’t pay much attention to those things. Anyway, please excuse my interference in your life for a quick second.
I read your interview and also watched it on video. You said:
“I’m just giving of my body on the stage and putting my life at risk, literally.….and I think about it. I think about my family and I’m like, wow, this is like being a police officer or something, in war or something.”
I want to thank you for putting your life on the line for all of us every day. I know that being a rapper is tough work. I have tried to rap, and it is very difficult to keep up with the pulse of the rhyme flow…although when Ice Ice Baby comes on the radio, I can usually keep up with ol’ Vanilla. Anywho, your job is just some very dangerous work. Most people don’t consider… if you rap really fast, without a chance to inhale, you could pass out and hit your head.
That last paragraph was covered in sarcasm. I’m letting you know, just so you do not think I agree with your very ignorant assessment of your career (or any other performer)as it relates to a person in the military or a police officer’s service. You sir, are as misguided as they come. I do have a suggestion for you. Since you are accustomed to danger, from your life as an international rapper, I am strongly encouraging you immediately abandon you career as a super star and join the military. After joining, I would like you to volunteer to be deployed in Afghanistan or one of the numerous other forward locations where our men an women are currently serving. When the Taliban starts shooting at you, perhaps you could stand up and let the words flow. It could be something like “I’m Kanye West, wearing a flak vest.” I’m sure they would just drop weapons and surrender. You could quite possibly end all wars, just from the enemy being star-struck.
Your line of thinking is part of the problem in the world today….which include entertainers thinking they are something more than just entertainers. I know it is supply and demand and the demand for your services is high. I get economics. What I do not get is you EVER comparing what you do for a living to our heroic military members, who are always in harm’s way… and my brother and sister police officers who have to go to work carrying weapons and wearing a bullet-proof vest to protect themselves.
Check yourself, before you wreck yourself….Chief Oliver.
We’re going to buy 800,000 copies of the Chief’s book just for being the best internet sensation ever. Proud to be in Ohio right now.
China’s diminishing air quality is creating significant dangers for anyone forced to breathe the toxic chemicals that are quickly beginning to make air unsafe to breathe in many areas in China. The source of this relatively newfound pollution can be traced to a policy implemented in an area north of the Huai River. This policy, in which the government offers free coal to residents for heating, has significantly contributed to air pollution in the area. This pollution brings significant health risks, including lung cancer, and in some cases, death.
Air Quality Measurement and Pollution
The most dangerous airborne particulates have a diameter of less than 2.5 micrometers (fine particles); below this size, particles can enter the bloodstream directly through the lungs. Measuring the amount of particulates in the air indicates the quality of the air, and a common standard, known as the Air Quality Index (AIQ) is used to quantify the detrimental health effects of a high concentration of these small particles. The AIQ is a simple scale, running from 0 – 500 with different levels of relative hazard given every 50 increments. Anything under 50 is considered good, while 500 is considered extremely hazardous. While the scale itself tops out at 500, the air quality can be calculated to reflect any level greater than zero. When the AIQ formula was applied to the air in the Harbin region of China, it was found that the particulate concentration reached nearly 1,000; more than double what the AIQ indicates as hazardous! Air quality reporting did not begin in china until January of 2012. Because of this, data on the impact of air quality reduction is limited, but it is known that 16 of the world’s most polluted cities are in China, with no large effort being made to curb the pollution and protect the safety of the residents.
The Problem, the Impact, and the Solution
While there are many sources of pollution in China, one of the biggest problems is coal. Northern China issues free coal to residents for heating. The result of rampant coal burning is an increase of air pollution by 55% and a reduction in life expectancy by five and a half years. China leads the world in coal consumption, as well as the carbon dioxide emissions that result from using it as fuel. This creates startling and troubling health consequences. Fine particulates are responsible for about 5% of cancer deaths worldwide, and the risk is even higher in China. Despite a reduction in smoking, the risk of lung cancer in China has increased 56% over the past decade. This increased risk led to 1.2 million early deaths in China in 2010, which is just short of half (40%) of the worldwide total for death by pollution. By 2050, this pollution would be the top cause of environmental death worldwide, largely affecting China and India. Experts are estimating 3.6 million early deaths from air pollution in each upcoming year for these countries. It is vital that awareness of the debilitating health effects of the heavily polluted air become widespread. Only about 1% of people living in Chinese cities breathe safe air. In order to help Chinese citizens, and for that matter, the entire world, cleaner air must become a priority.
Reality TV actress Khloe Kardashian is said to be devastated over reports that her estranged husband Lamar Odom is gay. When he released his drunken rap, he said that when “Khloe’s out of town, I still be on the DL.” We’d interpreted this to mean that he was cheating on her, but others suggest that it’s code for his bisexuality.
A family insider said, “Khloe is devastated. She thought things were getting better, but now she’s being slammed with rumors that Lamar is gay. She never understood why Lamar lost interest in having sex with her earlier this year, but if he’s living a secret gay life, that could explain it.”
The source went on to say, “Khloe is totally supportive of the gay community, but it would be just too much to take to learn that her husband was living a lie with her. Unfortunately, nothing would surprise her at this point.”
Khloe is said to be pulling the trigger on her divorce before Kim and Kanye walk down the aisle with one another. The snitch said, “Khloe doesn’t want to be a wreck at the wedding, watching her sister and Kanye embark on their life long journey of love together while she’s still in a f***ed up marriage that’s going nowhere. She wants to be in a good place mentally so that she can be there for kim and at one hundred percent. She loves her sister so much and doesn’t want to have any negative energy or be in a bad place when she and Kanye marry each other.”
Many people proclaim to be experts, and without the right knowledge you cannot make the distinction between legitimate sources and those that provide faulty information. You will more than likely find useful advice in the below article.
Each insurance company is different and uses their own criteria for determining rates. This will yield vast variations in price between the pricing plans of different insurance companies. You should explore all of your options; try to obtain three or more quotes before deciding on a particular insurance company. If you are running a small business, make sure you have all of your options covered. Most policies over fairly wide coverage but, but if you have a certain type of risk that is not covered in that policy, you need to either get another policy or add supplemental insurance.
Many insurance companies offer bundled packages across multiple insurance policies with the same insurance company. You can buy coverage for your motorcycle and motorcycle insurance for a rate that is fixed. A good number of insurance companies will offer many different sorts of home insurances together. Shop around to both online and research to get the best rates possible. The better educated shopper will usually get the right insurance plan.
Some pet insurers consider a policy renewal as a fresh start, meaning that if Fido developed a health condition, such as diabetes, the insurer could call it a “pre-existing condition” and charge you more when you renew. It’s best to avoid signing up for policies with insurance companies that uses sneaky strategies such as this one.
If you are in an accident, then it’s likely that other coverage within your policy will pay for it, so the likelihood that you will use it is slim. Check the reputation of an insurance company before you sign any policies with them. Some states will give you the ability to analyze premium comparisons by location and company to assist you in making an educated decision. Have multiple policies with the same company. You can get multiple discounts if you can have things like auto and homeowners insurance from the same carrier. You may find that your savings are upwards of 20 percent.
Talk to your family and friends to learn about their experiences with various insurance companies.
When you switch policies, always make sure you have complete coverage at all times. Your rates could go up if you ignore holes in your coverage. While it may be more costly, the full coverage will be worth those premiums.
You may very well get a good discount for having more than one policy with them. Compare the offer with those you found online; it might be cheaper somewhere else.
