Check out this article slamming people in high places in the State of Utah.
First we have John Swallow, Lt. Governor Bell that are both under federal investigation. Swallow who is in deeper doo doo then Bell and Swallow has many investigations pending. Also West Valley City Police had their own issues lately but now we turn our heads to the newest scandal:
The Tooele County Sheriff’s office now under investigation as well…
Utah…. What the hell is going on??? All the sudden the people that are supposed to be protecting the public are flat out criminalizing us. Taking advantage whatever you want to call it this is absurd… Utahans better check their ethic values real quick.
If you follow or even slightly enjoy college basketball or basketball in general than it’s a must you fill out a bracket “bracketology” . ESPN has folks sign up every year for this. This year it was sponsored by All State Insurance.
It is estimated that tens of millions of people fill out March Madness tourney brackets every year; 8.15 million brackets were entered in ESPN’s Tourney Challenge alone.
Over 60,000 brackets were filled out by Facebook users in Yahoo!’s Tourney Pick’em game  and Yahoo! was kind enough to share their data with us. We observe most users’ age, educational background, team and athletic page likes, location, and estimate the effect these have on how people fill out their brackets.
I signed up for one on espn. I did well but I didn’t win. I guess getting a rank of 435,107 with a PCT of 94.7 isn’t too bad out of 8.15 million. Although I didn’t win squat other than some bragging rights to the group I was in which only goes so far.
Oh well that’s the beauty of March Madness…. There is always next year to win the big one. It’s the closest thing we have to the lottery in Utah so I can always hope ha.
There are so many ways to guess, pick or choose who can run all the way to the end of the Road to the final 4. There isn’t a right or wrong way to picking and that’s all the fun in the madness… “Never really knowing” who could be this years Cinderella Like Wichita St. VCU years earlier among many other great solid teams. That’s probably one of the factors that really just entice and keep people so excited about March Madness.
The tourney really stress’s strategy for coaches, along with stamina for players. It’s one of my personal favorite times of year. Except football isn’t on ;/ But hey can’t win them all.
I picked Louisville and am glad they won, not because Kevin Ware broke his leg, but because Rick Pitino is a Great coach and made it to the Hall of Fame recently! He will also have a new tattoo soon. Good for the Cardinal Basketball program and team. They were fundamentally sound and played well as a team.
It’s a very big thing for the Cardinals to bring the title back to Kentucky a year after their in state dreaded Rival the “Kentucky Wildcats” did it previously. Shows how strong the East side of the country is in basketball.
Shout out to the Wolverines and Big 10 for putting on a hell of a run as well. They have a bright future with a solid 4-5 freshman on the come up

I would like to give a shout out to a good friend and a guy that has battled the rap streets a long time here in Utah.
Every Since I have known Alex Mamatuki which dates back to 7th grade which is now about 15 years previously from now in 2013, his passion has been rap, basketball, ladies among other good things.
Alex is a good guy and always there if you need him. He has done many good things for Utah’s underground battle scene. It’s great to see and hear him traveling more out of state and putting it down for Utahans. Along with getting some publicity. The guy works extremely hard on his raps and anything he puts his mind to.
Feel free to get a feel for one of his many different styles-
Mamatuki is quoted in the Salt Lake City weekly as saying “You have to be witty,” Mamatuki says. “Every flaw you can think of about yourself, flip it. … Make your weaknesses your strength.”
I hope Alex continues to do well as he has done for so many years! Good Job Homie and hope it comes big for ya!

Has anyone noticed that we have a drug, pill, or some type of medication that we can take for almost any symptom out there? I find it disturbing that we can go out to the pharmaceutics industry and find a poorly regulated industry that is sucking and ruining the live’s of so many Americans.
We have people struggling every day with addictions, along with the heart break, crime and every day violence that comes along with this painful prescriptions. We want to even give the addicts a pill for their addiction… If that makes sense?
More kids are typing from over doses than ever before. I personally am not a fan of pills, I understand it helps some clients in real pain. However, I believe it gets to a point where we have to walk a fine line with what we are feeding and pumping into society.
Most normal folks don’t understand most doctors get a referral or kickback “money” off of writing you a prescription. Of course the Doc has to feel comfortable prescribing that prescription How can we tell when a doctor is just wanting to push a prescription through?
Hopefully you trust your doctor…
I mean I wouldn’t sit here and complain if this wasn’t the 11th Consecutive year that the death rate has gone up. I was speaking to an officer the other day that works in West Valley City about homicide.
I asked the officer what do you see most deaths related to here in Utah?
He said “just this other week in February 2013 he had 3 dead bodies to investigate over alcohol mixed with prescription drugs or synthetic heroin “oxy’s”. It’s sad that we are shoving death pills down our society!
We should really take a loot at the pill problem that America has as should be a much larger concern than it is right now! Many innocent lives are being ruined by the “pill abyss”
Prosecutors are trying to block Johnson from firing back on YouTube, Facebook.

Call it Johnson’s War — with Jeremy Johnson as commander in chief.
The indicted and sued St. George businessman is waging high-tech, low-cost battles against his federal tormentors through YouTube videos, websites, Facebook, Twitter, a blog and interviews with the mainstream media.
The Swallow case
Indicted St. George businessman Jeremy Johnson has alleged that Utah’s new attorney general, John Swallow, helped broker payoffs to enlist the aid of Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid in derailing a Federal Trade Commission investigation of Johnson’s I Works business.
Swallow and Reid have vehemently denied the allegations. The U.S. Attorney’s Office has said it is investigating.
He appears to be taking no prisoners:
• Johnson’s YouTube videos accuse federal prosecutors of threatening to indict his family if he doesn’t plead guilty in his criminal case in which he asserts his innocence.
• He lobs witness-tampering allegations on YouTube at a Federal Trade Commission attorney.
• He indicts the agency’s actions on his EvilFTC.com website, which he promotes on Twitter.
• On Facebook, an “[Unofficial Fan Page] United States Attorney for the District of Utah” draws negative comments about prosecutors.
• And Johnson levels similar accusations in interviews with reporters.
His has been a months-long assault, but now federal prosecutors in Utah are fed up and trying to halt it. They’ve asked a federal judge in Salt Lake City to order Johnson to stop making statements to the news media and to dismantle his online offensive.
This type of effort from a defendant is unusual, but — with the rise of the Internet and social media — people such as Johnson now have a variety of tools at their fingertips to fight such a guerrilla war against their persecutors.
The FTC sued Johnson and his I Works company in 2010, alleging it illegally charged consumers’ credit and debit cards monthly fees after luring them with offers of products for small fees.
This is just a small shot of the article so go to the Salt Lake Tribune for the full version.

Good Catch up from the past…. We often forget things after a few years. This is a good refresh course.
With Recent stories of John Swallow and Jeremy Johnson’s bribery scheme going on. I thought it would be fitting to tie in another conversation John Swallow had with Aaron Christner and Ryan Scott Jensen a few month previously to all of this while he was running for AG’s off and campaigning for the Attorney General of Utah position.
This is a pattern of unethical performance and terrible poor judgement on Mr. Swallow’s part. Many local newspapers called for his resignation along with many other bloggers and media outlets eating up this story about John Swallow and the Feds.
