Loyal dog ‘Cissy’ runs away from her home, travels 20 blocks, turns up INSIDE hospital and sniffs out her cancer-stricken owner

Cissy has never run away from home before.

But on Saturday the miniature schnauzer from Iowa did, in order to find the person that is home.

Cissy disappeared from her yard in Cedar Rapids, only to show up about 20 blocks away at Mercy Medical Center.

Her owner, Nancy Franck, has been at the hospital for the last two weeks, after undergoing surgery for ovarian cancer.

But it remains a mystery how the dog managed to find her way back to her beloved ‘mom’

Dog Cissy turns up INSIDE hospital and sniffs out her cancer-stricken owner.  My filled ark knows when I leave the office.  They alert everyone and anyone that mom’s coming home.

You decide.

The stoopid is a historian?

In a recent interview on Saudi Rotana Khalijiyya TV, historian Saleh al-Saadoon said that if a Saudi Arabian’s woman’s car were to break down she could get raped.


He then went on to say that in countries where women are allowed to drive that women ‘don’t care’ if they are raped the way they do in Saudi Arabia, according to the transcript translated by the Middle East Media Research Institute.

Okay, equal stupid time in the US.

Damned if you do something to protect the company and its employees.  Walmart manager fired for trying to catch shoplifter.  Well, Walmart can’t have this.  Goodness gracious…a manager doing his job might cost them in liability insurance.

Watson, who said he made about $50,000 a year at his job, told the website he thought he was doing the right thing when the “habitual shoplifter” was running out of the store after setting off a security alarm.

The now former manager said he had been trained not to follow a suspect more than 10 feet out of the store, but there were no loss prevention officers working that night.

We have measures in place for the safety of our associates as well as our customers in situations like this.

“I am expected to keep the shoplifting at a minimum,” he said.

The value of items taken from the store also affects how much his associates receive in bonuses, he explained. The more money the store losses from thefts, the less the employees get paid, he said.

Watson was not hurt in the altercation, but said he was stunned the company made this decision. He was cited for “gross misconduct,” which means he cannot be hired at another Walmart of Sam’s Club.

“It was just kind of strange,” he said of his firing. “It was strange that they came to this conclusion after 27 days. I thought I was protecting the company.”

Damned if you don’t beat the living pulp out of an overgrown manchild having a hissy fit.

When a cell phone video of the incident was posted yesterday we watched, laughing, or at least morbidly fascinated, as the employee rampaged around unhinged. Robertson did his best to calm the employee, shepherding him toward the door and pointing to the exit, saying, “you need to leave.”

“I tried to secure the place,” says Robertson. “I couldn’t tackle him or put my hands on him. He’s a minor. So I did the best I could to settle him down and get him out of there.”

McDonald’s management disagreed, and Robertson was fired yesterday.

“[Management] felt like I didn’t have control of the store,” says Robertson. “This story is worldwide now and they’re looking at it like if I did something to solve it before it got all over the world they wouldn’t be getting all of this attention now. They don’t want all of this attention, and they’re blaming me.”

You know that the manager would be in jail for taking the manchild out and giving him a taste of reality.  What has happened to our world?  Political correctness.

Sounds just like dear leader having a cow over his putter gone mia.

So, let me get this straight.  Ms. Pineman (the subject of this New York Times article) is a loyal Obama voter and Obamacare supporter.  So, she accepted the following:

  • That her plan – which she liked – would go away.  Despite being told – explicitly – that if she liked her plan, she could keep her plan.
  • That her new plan would not pay for her favored doctor.  Despite being told – explicitly – that if she liked her doctor, she could keep her doctor.
  • That her premiums would be going up.  Despite being told – explicitly – that her costs would go down.
  • That her networks would shrink.  Despite being told – explicitly – that the quality of her coverage would not suffer.
  • That her co-pay for an emergency room visit went through the roof. No explicit promise that I can remember on this one, but it’s always fun to watch an Obamacare supporter discover this particular wrinkle.

So our loyal Obamacare supporter and Obama voter accepted all of this.  This wasn’t enough to set her off.  But being asked to drive 14 miles did:

Yes, I do believe that this man will rain Hell on ISIS while the poser plays with his putter.

Hunter also said that the lawmakers and King Abdullah did not make any mention of U.S. President Barack Obama.

Yes, they will.  Buh bye social security numbers.

Hackers infiltrated the computer network of the second largest health insurance company in the U.S. and stole the personal information of tens of millions of employees and customers, officials at Anthem said Wednesday.

The FBI is probing the hack at Anthem Inc., which was a very “sophisticated cyberattack,” company officials said in a statement.

Hackers cracked into a database containing 80 million records including names, birthdates, Social Security numbers, street and e-mail addresses, employee data and income, Anthem said.

“As soon as we learned about the attack, we immediately made every effort to close the security vulnerability, contacted the FBI and began fully cooperating with their investigation,” Anthem said.

The Indianapolis-based company, formerly known as WellPoint, did not say how the breach occurred or when it was discovered.

Credit card and medical information such as insurance claims and test results were not targeted or obtained, according to the company.

The FBI warned last year that healthcare industry companies were being targeted by hackers after an attack on hospital group Community Health Systems Inc. resulted in the theft of millions of patient records.

Anthem breach is the biggest in the health-care industry since Chinese hackers stole Social Security numbers, names and address from 4.5 million patients of Community Health Systems Inc., the second-biggest for-profit hospital chain, last year, according to Bloomberg News.
