Principal at an Elementary School in Santa Clara Charged with Selling Drugs

On September 24, 2012 Principal Eric Dean Lewis, 42, was charged with six drug related crimes, including sales of methamphetamine, Ecstasy and the date-rape drug GHB, which is used in small doses as an intoxicant by those in the club scene. He was arrested September 20, 2012 at a Cal-Train station in San Francisco, where he had agreed to pick up an undercover agent he ''met'' through a gay dating website. How dumb was this educated fool? He should know you can’t trust most of the people you met on those dating sights. Eric Dean Lewis was a principal at Montague Elementary School in Santa Clara. Lewis faces a maximum sentence of eight years and four months if he is convicted. Prosecutor Daniel Rothbach said “there is no evidence that Lewis was selling or using drugs with children.” The community was shocked when they heard this news. Shawna Yacoub a parent said, "We were really quite disappointed because Mr. Lewis is quite respected here." Santa Clara Unified School District Superintendent Bobbie Plough said, "I think our hiring process is pretty thorough. We do extensive background checks, reference checks and we've never had an incident like this before."

 Eric Dean Lewis is not the only principal to be charged with trying to sell drugs to undercover officer. David Groover, principal of Partin Settlement Elementary School in Kissimmee, Fla., was arrested on June 15 after allegedly providing drugs to an undercover Sheriff's deputy. What in the world has come over our leaders in education? Are they doing this to supplement their income? Are they doing this because their addicts? You never know about what a person is into, they may look all squeaky clean but are not. Do you think they were watching too much Breaking Bad?

Mitt Romney Comment Shows His True Self

Every time Presidential Candidate Mitt Romney opens his mouth he gets more ignorant. Back in May in front of wealthy donors he made this comment, “There are 47 percent of the people who will vote for the president no matter what. All right, there are 47 percent who are with him, who are dependent upon government, who believe that they are victims, who believe the government has a responsibility to care for them, who believe that they are entitled to health care, to food, to housing, to you-name-it. That that's an entitlement. And the government should give it to them. And they will vote for this president no matter what…These are people who pay no income tax.” Romney went on: "My job is not to worry about those people. I'll never convince them they should take personal responsibility and care for their lives."

Mitt Romney you ignorant S._ ._ . throughout the years you have contributed to the 47% of the so called people who don’t pay taxes and live off the system. You and your company Bain Capital took over companies lied to the people saying your there to help. Force the company into bankruptcy and the people that worked there were out of a job. Yes, they asked the government for help. They paid their taxes while they were working. They have that right to get some kind of help from the government. You Mitt Romney have the nerve to ship jobs overseas, so you can line your pockets. Hey Mitt this is a thought, if you say you want to help the economy and the people. Then bring all the jobs you shipped overseas back to America, how about that! All you ignorant people who believe in the crap Mitt is spewing go ahead you will be SORRY.

The Anti-Islamic Film That Sparked the Attack in Libya Killing the Ambassador and Three Americans

On July 2011 a casting call went out in Los Angeles California for an adventure film set 2,000 years ago called "Desert Warrior." That's how acting publications described it. The trailer of “Desert Warrior” was posted on YouTube. Viewers saw scene after scene of the Prophet Mohammed portrayed as a womanizer, buffoon, ruthless killer and child molester. Islam forbids all portrayals of Mohammed, let alone offensive ones. The Muslim world erupted in rage. Protesters aired their anti-American anger in Egypt, Yemen, Tunisia, Morocco, Sudan, and Iran and in the Palestinian territories.

On September 11, 2012 a violent mob attacked the U.S. Consulate in the Libyan city of Benghazi, leaving Ambassador Chris J. Stevens and three other Americans dead. Law enforcement officials say a man named Nakoula Basseley Nakoula is behind the anti-Muslim film. The man who calls himself Sam Bacile has said he created the film, but The Associated Press on Wednesday September 12, 2012, connected Nakoula to the Bacile persona.

Official are speculating that this was a planned attack. U.S. sources said Wednesday the four-hour assault in Benghazi had been planned by militants, with the attackers using the protest as a diversion. State Department Under Secretary Patrick Kennedy offered his opinion Wednesday that the attack was planned because it was so extensive and because of the "proliferation" of small and medium weapons at the scene. He was briefing congressional staffers when he made the suggestion. A London think tank with strong ties to Libya echoed the theory. The assault "came to avenge the death of Abu Yaya al-Libi, al Qaeda's second in command killed a few months ago. If this is the case, I think this conflict over in the middle-east will never end.
As for the Muslim world to condemn all of Americans for the actions of a few idiots is ridiculous, this statement goes both ways. The Islamic world and the West are incompatible. Free speech is part of Western culture it obviously is not a part of Islamic culture. A lot a Muslim want the democracy, but they do not want everything that goes with it. Freedom of speech happens to be one of our biggest freedoms. Sam Bacile or Nakoula Basseley Nakoula and all the people who were involved, you can run and hide you cowards. You will get what is coming to you.

Ambassador Chris J Stevens was from California. He attended and graduated from Piedmont High School in San Jose in 1978, and Graduated from the University of California, Berkeley, in 1982 with a B.A. he taught English as a Peace Corps from 1983 to 1985. We at Streetwise Special Delivery Courier Service send our prayers to the families and friends of all four Americans that were killed on that day.


John Burton Should Not Apologize For His Nazi Comment

On September 3, 2012 Chairman of the California Democratic Party John Burton said in a statement about the Republican Party, “They lie and they don’t care if people think they lie.” “As long as you lie, Joseph Goebbels, the big lie, you keep repeating it, you know.” When people figure out that these people say they do not care about the truth and they don’t care if they lie because it doesn’t matter if they lie.” “I mean, that’s very cynical, very dangerous.”

I think John Burton should not have apologized. He just made a comparison to Joseph Goebbel’s big lie. The Republican’s don’t want to hear the truth. They flat out lie and don’t give it a second thought. When someone calls them on their lies, they start crying like little babies. Demanding an apology, for being compared to the Nazi Joseph Goebbels, well you know if it looks like a duck. I’m just saying.

Here is a list of five lies that Paul Ryan told when he gave his speech at the Republican National Convention.
1. Lie: President Obama is the "greatest threat" to Medicare.
Truth: Obama didn't make any cuts to Medicare benefits; he made cuts to provider reimbursements, to improve cost efficiency and extend the fiscal security of Medicare by eight years. According to the Medicare actuary, "[Obama's] Affordable Care Act makes important changes to the Medicare program and substantially improves its financial outlook."But Ryan actually does want to cut benefits. He proposed dismantling Medicare and replacing it with a voucher system, leaving millions of seniors to come up with more money to pay for care out of pocket.2, 3

2. Lie: President Obama didn't save a General Motors plant in Wisconsin.
Truth: First, Obama wasn't even in office when the GM plant closed. Second, Obama never made a promise to save it.4

3. Lie: President Obama ignored recommendations of a bipartisan debt commission.
Truth: Paul Ryan actually sat on that commission. And he led Republicans in voting down the commission's own recommendation. So the commission never gave a report to Obama, because Ryan voted to kill the report before it could.5

4. Lie: President Obama is responsible for the downgrading of the U.S. Credit Rating
Truth: House Republicans, including Paul Ryan, held the full faith and credit of the United States hostage to try to ransom it for trillions of dollars in cuts to social programs without increasing taxes on the wealthy one dime. Standard & Poors said specifically, "We have changed our assumption on [revenue] because the majority of Republicans in Congress continue to resist any measure that would raise revenues." That's why our nation's credit rating was downgraded.6, 7

5. Lie: Ryan wants to protect the "weak."
Truth: Ryan's biggest feat in his political career was proposing a budget with dramatic cuts to programs benefiting the poor. He'd cut Medicaid by one third, take away health care insurance from 30 million Americans, and cut Pell Grants for 1 million students. All to give more tax breaks to the rich.8

1. "Fact check: Paul Ryan at the RNC," USA Today, August 30, 2012
2. "Undoing Obama Medicare cuts may backfire on Romney," The Boston Globe, August 18, 2012
3. "Romney-Ryan Medicare Plan Would Cost 29-Year-Olds $331,200: Report," Huffington Post, August 27, 2012
4. "Paul Ryan Misleads With GM Plant Closure Tale," Huffington Post, August 29, 2012
5. "Fact Check: Paul Ryan misleads on debt panel's spending cut plan," CNN, August 30, 2012
6. "Top 5 Fibs In Paul Ryan's Convention Speech," Talking Points Memo, August 30, 2012
7. "Paul Ryan Address: Convention Speech Built On Demonstrably Misleading Assertions," Huffington Post, August 30, 2012
8. "4 Ways Paul Ryan's Budget Would Devastate The Poor," ThinkProgress, August 17, 2012
The biased media should report on the lies Paul Ryan told. For all of you people who choose to believe these lies, you are idiots. I am a person who wants the truth, so I can make an informed decision. Keep believing in the lies and you will live to regret it.

The Shooting of CHP Officer Kenyon Youngstrom on Highway 680 in Walnut Creek

On September 4, 2012 CHP Officer Kenyon Youngstrom was shot through the neck after pulling over a man driving a Jeep Wrangler. The man in the Jeep was Christopher Boone Lacy, 38. He was driving on the shoulder of southbound Interstate 680 near Alamo around 8:20 a.m. When the second CHP Officer came on the scene he fired shots at the suspect killing him. Then the Officer attended to Officer Kenyon Youngstrom until emergency vehicles arrived. Officer Kenyon Youngstrom was taking to John Muir Medical Center. Officer Kenyon Youngstrom is in critical condition, on life support.
On September 5, 2012 Officer Kenyon Youngstrom was pronounced deceased at approximately 6:05 PM. Officer Kenyon Youngstrom was 37 years old. Officer Kenyon Youngstrom was a man who was called to serve his fellow man. He served in the U.S. Army Reserves from 1994 to 2000, achieving the rank of Specialist. Officer Kenyon Youngstrom went into the CHP Academy on August 2005 and was assigned to the CHP's Contra Costa Area upon his graduation in February 2006. Officer Kenyon Youngstrom transferred to the CHP's Golden Gate Division headquarters on January 2009 and recently transferred back to the Contra Costa Area office on August 1, 2012.
In death Officer Kenyon Youngstrom continues to help and serve his fellow man. Officer Kenyon Youngstrom was an organ donor. I’m happy that Officer Kenyon Youngsrtom was an organ donor and sad that he had to die, being a person who received a kidney from a donor. Officer Kenyon Youngstrom is survived by his wife, Karen, two sons and two daughters, parents, Gaylord and Jill Youngstrom of Riverside, Calif., four brothers and a sister.
When Officers stop drivers who are breaking the law, they are putting their lives on the line. There are a lot of people who don’t like law enforcement Officers. Christopher Boone Lacy happened to be one of them. We at Streetwise Special Delivery Courier Service send our prayers out to Officer Kenyon Youngstrom’s, family and the department.
