Have a “not so happy” New Year

Ever wish someone would just suck a bug?

With the ringing in of a New Year heralding a fresh outlook into the future for most there are those that you just can’t seem to shake. These are some of the goofiest SOB’s in our corner of the planet. And you would like to tell them that we hope their year just sucks!

We all have one of these pathetic creatures in our circle of acquaintances.  And don’t take the word acquaintance as anything other than you know them. Period.

How to be a real Dick er Richard

One of these perpetual and predictable pain in the rear personalities is one Richard Ashley of Hazel Park, Mi. From this point on I am going to refer to him as Dick! Dick is just a royal pain-in-the-arse with some delusional fantasies that he is just the smartest guy on the planet and is all that. IMHO what he really needs to do is take a look around himself and see what he really is. Just another Dick, er Richard!

But taking into account an environment that includes a decayed family structure, a rumored educational drop-out and a circle of “friends” that appear to be merely like-minded Facebook personalities. All noise but no substance. Kinda like humanoid sock puppets.

It is actually funny in a backwards kind of way that he currently lives in Hazel Park. It is fondly referred to in the metro Detroit area as “Hazel-tucky” for a variety of not so nice reasons. I didn’t say they weren’t deserved just that it’s not politically correct. But , in this case, very fitting.

Being a Super Dick

This phenomenal Dick thinks that the persistent harassment of someones extended family is just okie dokie.  Even to the point of agitating them out of state.  Yep! You heard it right ! OUT OF STATE!!! He will go to great lengths to perpetuate his juvenile antics. He thinks no one can figure it out. But we do. And pretty easily at that. Sadly they border on legal harassment statutes.

Richard Cranium ( think about it)

This “super smart” Dick’s harassment is usually in the form of calls too various law enforcement agencies with bogus and misleading information. And as usual it is for naught. A colossal waste of time for law enforcement officers and county officials. And the collection of the Police reports is  becoming rather large. And more than once he has been directed by local law enforcement agents to read the docs before he calls.

RTFM – Read The F**king manual

Now, while not being a rocket scientist, I do have a couple of degrees behind me and that would for normal citizens be enough to prompt a quick read of said docs.

Then the assumption here is that a) the party in question, in this case Dick, can indeed read and not actually one of these children that weren’t supposed to left behind. And b) should Dick read it there actually may not be a complete comprehension. How sad is that. This would lead someone to the simple conclusion that there is some underlying learning disability here. On the other hand you might also conclude that he just might be a true dick. Not like in the name Dick, but a real live jack-ass kind of dick. We’ve all know individuals like that.

Either way he is a royal pain-in-the-ass!

With that all said the conclusion her e is that it is only a matter of time before Richard Ashley continues his “modus operandi” and inadvertently steps on his … um …. er …..dick.  And it won’t be a moment too soon if you ask me!  And they do have ointments for these kinds of persistant pains. Preparation H.

In Conclusion

So for all the normal people out there have happy and prosperous New Year!

To Richard Ashley ….. Suck a bug!

Are some people really that goofy?

You have to wonder how some people manage to dress themselves

Social media should have a dress code!


All characters appearing in this article are fictitious. Any resemblance to Richard Ashley, real persons, living or dead, is purely coincidental. LOL


There are some notable individuals in almost everyone’s social sphere that you, on a daily basis, just shake your head and laugh because they are so goofy. They are just so loopy that you have to laugh because hitting them with a stick and yelling stop that is fruitless! And probably a waste of a good stick. It is totally mind-numbing! But …. entertaining!

For some unknown reason these individuals are a perpetual annoyance. And after repeated incidents of mindlessness they continue on their self appointed quest to bug the fire out of others. Sadly social media has become a hot bed for such individuals. You know who these people are! Because they have deluded themselves about just how much smarter they are than you. And how much more awesome they are than others. Throw in a sympathetic pile of “friends” and what you end up with, in my humble opinion, is a big bag of online stupid!

Go on with your bad self!

These same people that have social skills that are questionable at best,  when you put them in an online social environment they become self proclaimed geniuses! Despite evidence to the contrary, such as things like education and life history, they still come at you like they are all that! They are so “special” with their incredibly awesome insights into specific personal affairs that they have to berate you with all of the “evidence” as to why they are incredibly right. Leading the unknowing reader to believe they have somehow along the way acquired a Masters Degree in Psychology, along with an impressive legal background as they put in print/post these evidences. Excellent! Just frickin incredible! And how incredibly wrong they are! Many of us know better!

When you read these personal “insights”, also known as posts in some media, and unfortunately that is just about every damn day, you have to read through these rambling posts in utter awe. Wait! Let me rephrase that ….. amazement! And in most cases, at least in my experience, it under most circumstances culminates in “WTF was that!” moment. They are that incredible!

Zip it up before you step on it

Because they are on the web and because they are on social media and because they are awesomely right these individuals get the equivalence of an invincibility complex.Unfortunately because they are so awesomely incredible and they have documented in writing for everyone about it in all the gory details about the circumstances of the moment, they forget to “zip up their pants” so to speak. They have put all this so called “evidence” out there and pointed it at their web “Friend” and had all of their other “Friends” electronically pat them on the back for being so awesome, that they kind of become ignorant of the fact that this is an open forum that allows other non-“Friends” to view it. This is where they “step all over it with golf shoes” as I put it.

Not only that, they kinda neglected to take into account that someone just might fact-check their writings document it and respond with an opposing “insight” to these same events. In addition these “insights” are now in digital memory and engrained on the web forever, if found to be somehow, say, wrong, misleading or harmful, there may be some unfortunate repercussions for the awesomely smart individual! Damn! They didn’t see that coming!

While not new information on how to behave on the web I am presenting this as a friendly version of a Public Service Announcement. For demonstration sake I am going to pick ….Ummm…. Child Custody as the subject for the following examples. And as I said already it is strictly for educational purposes. Yeah! Whatever!

Top Ten Ways Social Media Use Can Impact Your Custody or Support Case
In recent years it has become common practice in family law cases to use social networking sites as tools to gain evidence in divorce, child custody, and child support cases.  Facebook and Twitter are amongst the top social media sites used by individuals to express their daily thoughts and to vent to the cyber-world about their pet peeves and life’s’ injustices.  Then there are other sites like LinkedIn and other business networking sites where people promote themselves professionally.  Many people who are in the process of a divorce, child custody and/or support case thoughtlessly put their life out there on the Internet through Facebook, MySpace, Instagram, Twitter and other forms of blogging and social networking.  Although social media can be entertaining, informative, and innocent if used properly, these sites can be detrimental to your case if used irresponsibly.

In addition this is a nice guideline as to how this “awesomeness” is a legal windfall to the other party.

Is Facebook A Friend Or Foe In Divorce and Child Custody Battles?

When someone’s character is on trial before the court, a guardian ad litem, a child custody evaluator, etc., any form of public information can be taken into account.In divorce and child custody battles, parties’ tempers are flared and mud slinging is expected. This is a “he said-she said” war of who is the worst person, who has done the worst things and who deserves more or less with the children because of it.

In the mud slinging phase, parties will get any information possible to show that you are undeserving of a fair and reasonable result.  And the information posted on social networking websites, including Facebook, will be the first evidence given to the judge to back up the claims.

While Facebook can be a formidable foe in your divorce, there are four reasons social networking websites can also be your friend:

1. You can use the information on social media websites against the opposing party.

2.  Social networking websites can be used as your own personal private detective.  Most people have no limits to what they will expose or share on these public sites.

3.  Information acquired from Facebook can be used to evaluate the opposing party’s maturity and their ability to parent. The screening of Facebook profiles is a common practice in many aspects of life. For example, social networking websites are used all the time by employers to recruit and hire people for jobs. Making the wrong comment on a personal profile can be enough for an employer to disqualify an application. In similar fashion, the court can use this information to determine the quality of character and parental fitness.

4.  The most common way Facebook and other social networking sites can be used against the other party in court is when they use these sites to deface, demean and speak poorly of someone. This is a very common occurrence and one’s case can benefit if this information is carefully presented to the court.

With all of this being said, these same fantastically special individuals continue to spew interesting writings on the social media that are nothing but drivel and crapola. And they apparently have no regard for the possible repercussions of their now documented utterings being fact checked, rebutted and corrected. And maybe, just maybe, slapped on them in some sort of legal action. This does not play well into their I am awesome narrative. But this doesn’t seem to affect them.

In conclusion all I can say at this point is you [Richard Ashley] go on with your bad self! Keep up the good work! You are AWESOME! Keep writing! The web is taking notes. Ain’t the web great!?

Some people just don’t get it!

Joint custody is a simple legal concept for most people. But not all.

Unfortunately there really are people in our country that can’t read and comprehend simple concepts

It exposes itself in the form of the local Ashley family of Warren, MI. Specifically Mr Richard Ashley and his mother Stacy Ashley. It appears that they have no apparent comprehension or understanding of just what a judicial court order is and that they may want to consult their lawyer in this custody battle over my great-grandson and see if he can enlighten them as to how our legal works. He was in the courtroom with the rest of us when the judge laid out the simple ground rules. Additionally Mr. Ashley read and signed the said same order we did. It is my conclusion that he either has a severely acute auditory malfunction or possibly some form of severe reading comprehension issue.  When it states joint custody until a future decision deems otherwise it’s not really that complicated for most of us. Pretty simple actually. When specific days of the week and specifics for weekends and holidays are declared and put into written form it boggles my mind as to why it is a continuous challenge for members of my family to invoke this court ordered schedule of custody. The continual need to involve law enforcement in the simple act of a court edict for a day with the child can only be perceived as an intentional calculated aggravation. Duly noted and documented. And the growing stack of police reports that are documenting these events just increases the weight of evidence against him, and his family. But they don’t seem to get the message.

And I include his immediate family and friends in this. Unfortunately they are co-conspirators in this effort. When they, the mother and a cousin of Mr. Ashley, feel the need to conduct continual drive-bys of my granddaughters residence for some unknown reason. If this is an attempt to intimidate then that doesn’t speak well as to their mental motivations. Even the Mrs. Ashley feels the need to make interesting and threatening phone calls to the opposing grandparents [me].  Why? Dunno! And add to that having other family members to send life threatening text messages such as “We have a bullet waiting for you” compound the problem many fold. Apparently they don’t watch a whole lot of TV or watch the news enough to comprehend that in real life it really is pretty simple to trace these and any basic phone has the capability to snapshot them and that these messages pretty much speak for themselves when viewed by law enforcement. All I can say to this is “Keep up the good work folks! You are making this easy.

You can't fix Supid
You can’t fix Stupid

NOTE: There is some leeway for any individual, such as Mr Ashley, that potentially hasn’t finished high school or gotten a  GED by age 22. All in all my conclusion is that this family is a real big bag of stupid! And all I can say is quote the comedian Ron White ” You can’t fix stupid!”

 

Excellent job Mom! Well maybe! Er … Nope!

You may want to keep an eye on your mom!

You can stop helping any time

On this Mothers Day wouldn’t it be refreshing to see a mom use this day to go out of her way to help her son. And being so willing to do it on camera, and in front of others, is just extraordinarily awesome! I am sure that any loving son would normally be just ecstatic about her concerns. Key word here is normally.

This is a work of fiction. Names, characters, places and incidents either are products of the author’s imagination or are used fictitiously. Any resemblance to actual events or locales or persons, living or dead, is entirely coincidental.

mental_illness_mental_illness_your_head_examined_demotivational_posters_1304367125__67870Actions raising concern for a mental health condition

Let me paint a quick mental picture for you to mull over. While I don’t normally get this excited about a mom showing a son just how helpful she can be but there are always exceptions to the norm. And it really does speak directly to the mental health of or aging population. In this case picture a mother, along with her relatives and close allies, going out of their way to return a simple item to the owner. But the unfortunate fact is that the person that they were returning it to wasn’t even the intended party! That’s exceptional! Really exceptional!

But, as in this case, being exceptional in the wrong circumstances also causes some grave health concerns for these same individuals. What is really  worry some is when a mother, or others for that matter, don’t have enough cognizant abilities to recognize that the person she, and her accomplices, are attempting to return this item to is not even the intended party. And when she attempts to return it she totally misses the mark and ends up dashing it right in the street. And upon discovery that it isn’t really the intended recipient the circumstance devolves into an angry rant complete with threats of harm all for the mistaken identity. Sadly loss of focus, inability to handle stressful circumstances, impaired vision, sudden outbursts of anger, loss of motor skills may be the signs of the onset of Alzheimer’s.  Or maybe even some other mental degrading disease or disorder. This is a sad time for these people.

It must be noted that because of the state of our world today there have been instances where similar symptoms and actions can be assigned to a mental heath issue when they are in actuality signs of long term chemical abuses. While one can speculate only a medical professional can determine the actual cause.

This is a growing concern here in the US as our population is becoming incrementally older. The good news is that there are a wide variety of mental health services available. Many at no cost.

Warning Signs

Other signs that can manifest themselves can show themselves in the form of extremely loud incoherent rants to invisible entities while wandering the streets aimlessly. You don’t really want to laugh out loud at these sad individuals, that would just be mean, but it can be very entertaining.  And reviewing videos like this are what YouTube and Vimeo use to pay their bills. Other uses for these has become more and more common. They are now being introduced as evidence in a wide variety of legal proceedings, including the determination of diminished mental capacity. Sadly, research has substantiated that many of these mental anomalies are hereditary. I am sure they are working on a cure. Or at least treatment.

Group Mental Health Issues

It is also substantiated that in some extreme cases the friends and acquaintances of these impaired individuals can actually empathize with them and go along with their actions however bizarre they may be. this is a sad situation. But at times it can appear to be comical.  It almost leads one to believe that they too may be in some way mentally distressed. Or at least mentally impaired to some extent. They can even so delusional to the point of believing that what they are doing is noble and OK. When in actuality it may be totally criminal. And since they are in the same company of individuals one can’t help but conclude they are legally party to it. It becomes hard to separate them from one another. Sometimes the unforeseen consequence is the simple fact that they too become a legal party to these actions and events. Kinda like guilt by association. Hopefully they can separate themselves from the situation in time. Sometimes it’s too late.

You can make your own decisions as to whether these actions are indicative of a pervasive mental condition or not.

The New Technologies

In a prior article I expressed my understanding of these new technologies and their legal implications. Read it here

The upside of the modern world is that the proliferation of both audio and video media the possibilities of being undeniably fingered either in video where they are displaying these symptoms of incoherency and sometimes something as a simple audio from, say a law enforcement call, may actually be enough to eliminate any doubts as to the true demeanor of any individual in question.

With that I will end this Public Service Announcement.

Richard Ashley – You will get what you deserve!

Richard Ashley – Consider this fair warning

Now you may , or may not, see this but …

You a re nothing less than a chicken sh#t little weasel in hiding! Now you are creating your own maelstrom of problems.  While it could have been avoided you have chosen to do it the hard way. And if I have anything to say about it it’s gonna get ugly. Enjoy your adventure in hide and seek from us while you can. My prediction here is you WILL lose!

Richard Ashley is the former boyfriend of my grand daughter. He is the documented, but unsubstantiated [as in not DNA verified], father of my grandson RJ. And because of the pending custody litigation has decided to go into hiding and taken my grandson with him. [Kidnapping? Dunno yet. Working on it] And in addition he has taken my granddaughters ID’s and even a Federal check of hers that is not in his name. [Federal offense? Dunno. IRS has been consulted. Working on it] Additionally he has made these too unavailable to her. The ID’s an be replaced but the documentation is being entered to reflect the possible “theft”. [More possible charges? Maybe!] His new girlfriend has been described as a “undesirable” by some. Rumor has it that she may be  the engine behind at least some of these events. If this proves to be true then I don’t have a problem throwing her under the bus too! Two documented attempts to see the child have come up empty handed. And the Police reports reflect that.

It is my unfortunate belief that his mother, Stacy,  may actually be a co-conspirator to these shenanigans. I hope not. She said she has not talked to him in a few days and doesn’t know where he is.  But if she is party to this it may get her involved in something she may not want to be in. Just thinking out loud here. Putting the pieces together as legal as possible.

Since Mr. Ashley has decided to make yourself “unavailable” for my granddaughter to see her child has escalated my ire to a new level. With a court order in the the works, some Child Protective Services resources and the assistance of the Warren Police Dept., there may be some escalating list of additional charges. Any and all that I can apply will be done. I am all in on this one. I am well beyond the ask nicely stage.

I am normally a level headed guy but this asshat has got me at a totally new level. Since he works for a former employer I have made some very pointed inquiries directly to Advance Auto managers and HR representatives. As of 6 PM today his manager at the Advance Auto store that he works at on John R and 11 Mile Road in Madison Heights, MI told me that he had not seen Richard for a week or so. I hope that he was truthful here because at this time I have no sense of humor. When this information was passed on to the Advance Auto HR team the fact that he may have missed three shifts unaccounted for , according to Advance Auto guidelines, is considered to be a voluntary vacation of your position. And during  my conversation with them they also assured me that they would look into it. I am not expecting any miracles here but since I put the bug in their ear I hope to  be a direct contributor to his losing his job! If not directly but indirectly.

And with no income this could become very problematic for him to fight us in the custody battle. Just vocalizing here. And unless he has a wish to become a prime candidate for “3 hots and a cot” he may be well advised to cooperate very soon before things get way out of hand. Because when he does come out of hiding he is gonna be in for a big surprise!

Just thinking out loud here.
