Friday Nite Lite: Easter Fools and Other Cartoons

Good Evening

It is Good Friday, and I have a few cartoons for you about bunnies and eggs…but first, have you seen this story out of Ohio? Ohio Landlord Who Allegedly Whipped Tenant Now Accused Of Paddling Another Man

An Ohio landlord charged with whipping an adult tenant with a belt on his buttocks for falling behind on his rent has been accused of whipping another man with a belt and a paddle, according to court records obtained Friday.

In a lawsuit filed in southwestern Ohio’s Warren County on Tuesday, Mark Neace accuses Ronald Kronenberger of spanking him on four separate occasions while Neace worked as a volunteer in Kronenberger’s grocery store in Waynesville.

The lawsuit, which describes Neace as mentally disabled, says the whippings caused him “severe emotional distress.”

Kronenberger’s home phone number does not accept messages and the number at his grocery store in Waynesville rang busy Friday.

His Dayton attorney, Lawrence Greger, declined to comment

I don’t know, that is a crazy story. There are a lot of wackos out there.

I always am leery when it comes to far out stories around the time of April Fools. I mean bacon flavored mouthwash and bacon flavored condoms? Seriously!

  1. Have a great evening.

    Apparently Obama has been plotting with Republicans to cut Medicare. Digby has the details.

    • bostonboomer says:

      All people on Medicare would pay what’s called a “unified deductible”—the amount a patient pays before insurance kicks in—of $550 instead of a the current separate hospital deductible ($1,184 this year) and a separate medical deductible (now $147). The new deductible would mean that people using medical services—which most do—will be exposed to an out-of-pocket cost four times higher than they have now before Medicare pays for their care.

      That would mean I could never go to the doctor, so I’d only use Medicare if something catastrophic happened to me.

      • bostonboomer says:

        Digby:

        Basically, if this is part of some big budget deal (Grand Bargain) it means they’re making Medicare recipients pay down the deficit. They don’t anticipate any blowback from the Democrats since it’s a Democratic president who’s proposing it and they figure that since it will go into affect in 2016, after the president is out of office, the dumbshits who enter Medicare after that won’t know the difference and he won’t get blamed. It’s all good.

      • janicen says:

        This is exactly ass backward. You want to encourage people to see their doctors to avoid expensive hospitalizations, not make it more expensive for them to go to the doctor. WTF?

      • quixote says:

        Great. That’s what’s been worrying me since before the election.

        We need a Wizard of Oz moment where Democratic Congresscritters realize that under the perfectly tailored suit he’s a Republican who will destroy their personal chances of re-election forever. Maybe then they’ll start blowing back?

      • NW Luna says:

        That’s their plan.

    • Obama is an asshole.

      • ecocatwoman says:

        May I expand that to ALL politicians are assholes?

      • quixote says:

        Not really, ecocat. Winston Churchill, FDR, Lincoln, were politicians but not a-holes. We don’t know yet how they’ll turn out in the end, but Feingold, Grayson, Warren, Hillary for that matter, all don’t strike me as deserving that label. Not being perfect is not the same as being an asshole. Obama does manage to do both though.

      Oh. My. God. What is going on down there in the Southland?

      • dakinikat says:

        A lot of angry white men have lost their livelihoods and they’re taking it out on the wrong people. They’re just knee jerk confederates because it’s all they know. Blame castrating bitches and the nonwhites.
