Obituary



Michael "Flathead" Blanchard   |   Visit Guest Book

Blanchard, Michael "Flathead"
1944 ~ 2012
A Celebration of the life of Michael "Flathead" Blanchard will be held on April 14th, 3 pm 8160 Rosemary St, Commerce City. Weary of reading obituaries noting someone's courageous battle with death, Mike wanted it known that he died as a result of being stubborn, refusing to follow doctors' orders and raising hell for more than six decades. He enjoyed booze, guns, cars and younger women until the day he died.
Mike was born July 1944 in Colorado to Clyde and Ethel Blanchard. A community activist, he is noted for saving the Dr. Justina Ford house from demolition and defending those who could not defend themselves. He was a Republican delegate, life member of the NRA, founder and President of the Dead Cats MC. He loved music.
Mike was preceded in death by Clyde and Ethel Blanchard, survived by his beloved sons Mike and Chopper, former wife Jane Transue, brother Stephen Blanchard (Susan), Uncle Don and Aunt Cynthia Blanchard(his favorite); Uncle Dill and Aunt Dot, cousins and nephews, Baba Yaga can kiss his butt. So many of his childhood friends that weren't killed in Vietnam went on to become criminals, prostitutes and/or Democrats. He asks that you stop by and re-tell the stories he can no longer tell. As the Celebration will contain Adult material we respectfully ask that no children under 18 attend.

Great remembrance - actually Flathead died a year ago, and his family took the rough draft of the obituary notes he was writing when he was dying of colon cancer, and wrote up the memorial which ran in the Denver newspaper on Thursday.

As often happens as it gets republished again and again on the net, minor edits occur - intentionally and accidently.

His nickname came from his passion of restoring old Fords from the early 1930s which had flathead engines - which became classic beach and dirt track racing cars in the post-WWII '40s and '50s.  

His activism was primarily civil rights and defending the needy.

Dr. Justina Ford was Denver's first black female M.D, who because of the prejudice of the period and denial of admission into the Colorado Medical Association practiced out of her home - the house that Flathead worked to save and turn into the Black American West Museum - and made house calls, delivering 7,000+ babies. His son says that insuring that Ford's story be told was one of his proudest accomplishments.

His other "son" - Chopper - listed in the memorial/obit is his cat!

Men pay price for not reading instructions on hair removal cream as review pages detail painful genital experiences



By DEBORAH ANDREWS

Men attempting to remove hair from their genitals have found that the process is not as straightforward as they may have thought.
For many women, learning to cope with the pain of hair removal is something they take in their stride.
But for men, the basics of preening don’t always come so easily - judging by some of the unfortunate experiences documented in reviews of a new hair removal cream.

Regrets: Men are trying to remove hair from their genitals using Veet cream, despite clear instructions saying it is for use only on arms, legs, chest and back - and suffering excruciating consequences
Men in search of the perfect smooth body have been painfully caught out applying Veet for Men hair removal gel a little too liberally, it seems.
Despite the instructions clearly stating the cream is for back, chest, arms , legs and underarms only, many men are risking their health by using the cream to remove hair from their genitals - and are forced to suffer the consequences.
One reviewer, Andrew, writes of the bestselling cream on the Amazon website that the testicles he 'knew and loved' are gone now. He goes on to say that his testicles are now 'maroon coloured' and causing him excruciating agony, sending 'stabs of pain' up his body every time they graze against his thigh or an article of clothing.
Another hapless man who may from now be opt for a professional wax wrote: 'If you are a run of the mill bloke trying to remove some unwanted hair from some unwanted places, this product will make you cry.

The £7.95 cream has been reviewed dozens of times on Amazon by men who have had bad experiences
'You may find out the hard way and wake up one morning with an extremely high voice and notice you have no more testicles and being officially classed as a eunuch.'
He added: 'Like 90 percent of the reviews on the page. I would say we have all suffered from making the terrible mistake of vandalising one's self in ways we shouldn’t.'
Veet for Men comes in a 200 ml tube and is described as 'a quick and effective way to remove body hair' that 'leaves your skin feeling
smoother for up to twice as long as shaving.'
It costs £7.95 and men are advised it is suitable for the back, chest,
arms, legs and underarms only.
It is listed as one of Amazon’s best selling health and beauty
products - a rise that can be attributed to the growing trend for men preferring a hairless, ‘metroxexual’ look.
Another reviewer, writing under the name Mr Alexander-Brown, said:
“You gotta (sic) read the instructions. Especially when you’re doing
your nether regions, err on the side of caution,' before going on to complain about 'burny, weepy' skin.
Another - whose review comes under the headline 'Disclaimer: Do not
use if born south of Sheffield', wrote: 'Probably the first thing you
will notice after using this product is the pain.
'Although as a man I lack the required experience, I’m going to estimate that using this product is at least eleven times more painful than childbirth.
'Imagine sticking a rusty razor blade into your eye, before
tying your hands behind your back. Then imagine that you use the
entrenched razor blade to slice open a raw onion. All the while being
butt naked. This product is slightly more painful than that.'
The product has attracted 67 customer reviews on the Amazon website (despite the pain it seems to cause when wrongly applied) - with the majority, surprisingly, giving it a five star rating.

An old Marine Pilot sat down at the Starbucks, still wearing his old USMC flight suit and leather jacket and ordered a cup of coffee.

As he sat sipping his coffee, a young woman sat down next to him. She turned to the pilot and asked, 'Are you a real pilot?'

He replied, 'Well, I've spent my whole life flying planes, first Stearman's, then the early Grummans... flew a Wildcat and Corsair in WWII, and later in the Korean conflict, Banshees and Cougars. I've taught more than 260 people to fly and given rides to hundreds, so I guess I am a pilot, and you, what are you?

She said, 'I'm a lesbian. I spend my whole day thinking about naked women. As soon as I get up in the morning, I think about naked women. When I shower, I think about naked women. When I watch TV, I think about naked women. It seems everything makes me think of naked women.'

The two sat sipping in silence.

A little while later, a young man sat down on the other side of the old pilot and asked: "are you a real pilot?"

He replied, 'I always thought I was, but I just found out I'm a lesbian.'

Executive Order Authorizing Government Control of Internet Nearing Completion

Secretary Janet Napolitano told a Senate committee that the Administration is drafting an Executive Order that would grant her Department of Homeland Security “sweeping new powers over the Internet.”
“As we saw this past week, irresponsible use of the Internet by anti-Islamic bigots spawned riots against US embassies throughout the Muslim world,” Napolitano explained. “The Administration needs the authority to interdict inflammatory and dangerous messages before they can cause trouble.”
Napolitano told Senators that “the Executive Order is necessary because Congress has neglected its responsibility to pass appropriate enabling legislation. The President isn't going to sit by and allow threats to our interests to have unrestrained access to this very potent means of communication just because Congress can't get its act together.”
The Secretary rejected arguments that restricting access to the Internet violates the Constitution's First Amendment. “If you read the document carefully you see that the First Amendment bars Congress from making a law abridging freedom of speech,” Napolitano pointed out. “It places no such prohibition on the President. In fact, it could be argued that as the nation's Commander-in-Chief he has the obligation to take this action.”

Judge Blocks Purge of Dead Voters

State District Judge Tim Sulak issued an order to Texas Secretary of State Hope Andrade to cease and desist in her office's efforts to remove deceased voters from the rolls.
In his ruling, Sulak said that “the Secretary has failed to demonstrate sufficient grounds for excluding these voters. Just because a person is deceased does not mean that person has no interest in the election's outcome. Has a deceased parent no concern for the well-being of his children? Of course he does. To arbitrarily deny this interest is discriminatory and, therefore, illegal.”
The Judge rejected the Secretary's argument that it is impossible to know how a deceased person would vote saying that “friends and relatives acquainted with the views the person expressed while alive may serve as good proxies for casting votes on behalf of the deceased.”
State officials sent notices to the last known addresses of 80,000 voters who the Social Security Administration (SSA) says had died. Those failing to reply with proof they are alive were to be stricken from the rolls.
However, Sulak discounted the SSA as “an unreliable source. Every year this agency pays out billions of dollars on bogus claims. And that's not counting the billions 'legitimately' paid to those who've disabled themselves through drug addiction. Using anything from this agency as a basis for any action is highly suspect.”
In related news, a statistical analysis of Ohio's voting rolls indicates that at least 20% of the registrations appear to be phony. In two counties the number of people registered to vote exceeds the voting age population. The national average is for 70% of the voting age population to be registered to vote. Nevertheless, US Attorney General Eric Holder insists that vote fraud is not a serious problem and warned the Ohio Secretary of State “to refrain from taking any action that may be construed as an attempt to reduce voter turnout.”

President Assures Letterman that National Debt Isn't Important

Unable to answer a simple question regarding the size of the national debt during an interview on David Letterman's talk show, President Obama tried to assure viewers that it isn't important.
“I can't put my finger on the precise amount,” Obama said. “How about a 'ballpark' estimate?” Letterman asked.
“Well, I don't know, but it doesn't really matter,” the President replied. “You see, mostly this is money we owe ourselves. I mean, Americans owe the debt and Americans own the debt. In effect, paying the debt is like taking money out of your right pocket and putting it into your left pocket. It's a wash transaction. We could eliminate most of the debt by simply canceling this shuffle.”
In related news, the United States fell to 18th place in the annual Economic Freedom of the World report. Chairman of the President's Council of Economic Advisers Alan Krueger dismissed the report's importance saying “it is overly reliant on outmoded ideas that put individual rights ahead of the collective benefits.”

President Sees No Need to Address Mid-East Crisis

Obama campaign spokesman Ben LaBolt said President Obama sees no need for him to brief the American people on the Mid-East crisis.
“How would this benefit him?” LaBolt asked. “The media have already moved on to other issues that are working in his favor. There is no outcry from voters demanding answers as to how this happened. The only people who want him to speak out about it are his opponents. So, I think keeping quite is the smart thing to do.”
Despite the President's reluctance to speak to the American people, he and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton have invested $70,000 in TV ads in Pakistan. In the ads both make appearances to express their apologies for the “Innocence of Muslims” video held to be a contributor to the recent riots in several Islamic countries.
Obama kicked off the ad saying, “We reject all efforts to denigrate religious beliefs of others.” Clinton followed up by reminding that “the United States Government has absolutely nothing to do with this video,” and urging that “your anger should be focused elsewhere.”
Another placating move under consideration is the possible release of Omar Abdel-Rahman, who is currently serving a life sentence for his role in a plot to conduct assassinations and destroy bridges, tunnels and other landmarks in New York City. Clinton defended the move as one motivated by compassion. “The man is, after all, blind,” she explained. “He's been in jail for nearly two decades. Releasing him is unlikely to harm us and could go a long way toward mollifying those threatening violence unless he is released.”

President Says He Can't Change Washington from the Inside

In a gaffe that some are calling “Bidenesque,” President Obama sought to divert attention from his broken promises by claiming impotence.
“The most important lesson I've learned is you can't change Washington from the inside,” he told the audience at at a forum hosted by the Spanish-language TV channel Univision. “You can only change it from the outside.”
A nonplussed host inquired, “If you can't change it from inside why are you running for reelection?”
“As frustrating and unrewarding as being the president may be, I feel it is my duty to occupy that chair in order to prevent malevolent forces from taking over the country,” Obama answered. “As we have seen, my opponent has great animus against the 47% who rely on government for their living. Allowing him to be elected would be seen as a validation of the notion that people should be expected to fend for themselves.”
“It's taken us about three generations to get to that 47% level,” the President continued. “That's a lot of progress, but we can't let ourselves be satisfied with only half a loaf. While we can probably never get to 100%, I hope that reaching 98% or 99% might be attained during my lifetime. I'm confident that with another term we can reach the tipping-point where a clear majority is aligned with our program. Once that happens the transformation I envision for America will never be undone.”
In related news, Presidential Press Secretary Jay Carney maintained that “Romney's '47%' remarks may effectively disqualify him from serving as president. His disdain for dependency puts him out-of-step with the moral mainstream of our society. Those who rely on government to meet their basic needs shouldn't have to live with the fear that they might be forced to enter the workforce against their will. Romney's made a thinly veiled attack on a way of life that I think voters will soundly reject come November.”

Blasphemous Video May Lead to Extraditions

The Egyptian Government has issued arrest warrants for seven Egyptian Coptic Christians and American pastor Terry Jones on charges of “harming national unity, insulting Islam, and spreading false information.” The charges stem from the belief that these persons are linked to the “Innocence of Muslims” video.
Egyptian President Mohammed Morsi is expected to demand their extradition when he meets with President Obama in New York and Washington this week. The US State Department and Department of Justice are reported to be reviewing the case.
“It's an interesting question,” mused Attorney General Eric Holder. “Normally, we'd think it's a freedom of speech issue. If the impacts were strictly confined within our own borders the First Amendment might be deemed decisive. However, since the impacts have mainly been felt outside our borders it may not apply.”
According to UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon, the US Constitution's protection of freedom of speech does not apply when someone's values and beliefs are offended. “Freedom of expression should be and must be guaranteed and protected, when they are used for common justice and common purpose,” Ban said. “However, those who insist upon being disagreeable must not be allowed to claim the privilege of free speech.”
