Could Tomlinson play vs. Steelers on Sunday Night?

If so, that would be fucking sweet.

SAN DIEGO (AP)—LaDainian Tomlinson(notes) was back at practice Wednesday for the first time since spraining his right ankle in the season opener, an encouraging sign for a San Diego Chargers team that has struggled to run the ball.

After missing two straight games for the first time in his brilliant career, Tomlinson hopes he can play Sunday night at Pittsburgh. Not only do the Chargers (2-1) expect the defending Super Bowl champions to be riled up after falling to 1-2, but San Diego hasn’t won in Pittsburgh since upsetting the Steelers in the AFC championship game following the 1994 season.

The Chargers have been careful to avoid rushing Tomlinson back. They could either chose to let him play Sunday night or have him sit out a third straight game and then have the bye week to continue to heal.

How much do us Chargers fans miss #21? A few stats in three weeks of the NFL season:

* In the last two games when in the red-zone, San Diego is just 1-11.
* San Diego's rushing total is 199 yds overall, the second lowest in football
* Darren Sproles and Michael Bennett have rushed for a combined 2.6 yds/carry. Tomlinson's avg. playing the Raiders in Week 1 is 4.2 yds/carry.

We want him back. Badly.

If At First It Don't Succeed Odds Are It Never Will

Another bowl game in Yankee Stadium
Get ready for the Yankee Bowl.

Starting in 2010, teams from the Big East and Big 12 conferences will play in an annual bowl game at the new Yankee Stadium.

The four-year deal will match the Big East's third or fourth selection against the Big 12's seventh selection. Notre Dame has agreed to play in the bowl if it available and the Big 12 does not have enough bowl-eligible teams.

The game will be played between Christmas and New Year's Day each year.


...

As any Nebraska fan can tell you there once was a Bowl Game in Yankee Stadium and it was called the Gotham Bowl. It lasted for 2 years 1961 and 1962. In 1962 Nebraska played Miami of Florida Nebraska won 36-34. The crowd was officially counted at 6,166 people most estimates put the crowd at 1,000 people or less. There was a newspaper strike in NY so the game got no coverage and Nebraska actually was sitting in the Lincoln Airport waiting for the Check to cash before the left for New York.

Even if the Yankee Bowl's leaders are more competent than the Gotham Bowl folks the fact still remains New York City doesn't give a shit about college football and NOBODY wants to go to a cold weather northern city to see a bowl game. Especially a game between the 7th team in the Big XII and the 4th team in the Big East.

Why do we keep trying things over and over that have been proven to be miserable failures? This goes beyond football obviously.

The 2nd cumming of Jesus

Just brilliant. Jesus of Nazareth returns...and he's at a porn convention!?

Earl Wants To Change The Rules

Fuck Earl

Sen. Ben Nelson (D-NE) continues to be a scold to the liberals in his party. Before a crowd of over 200 gathered at a senior center in Nebraska, Nelson said health care reform ought to pass with 65 votes--a feat which would require at least five Republicans to break with their party.

"I think anything less than that would challenge its legitimacy," he said.

Nelson didn't go so far as to say that he'd oppose a bill that had less than 64 other votes. But he did say he disagreed with the party's legislative approach to the issue.

"We need to get started by controlling costs and need more time to figure out how to pay for extended coverage," he told the Lincoln Journal Star. "Public debate can occur in the context of an election."

In fairness to Nelson, President Obama did not run on a platform that included an individual mandate--so it could plausibly be argued that the public hasn't officially weighed in on the question of universal health care. But he did run on a public option...

A Man who can not whistle is a probably homosexual.

Page 37 Of 2008 Penguin edition of The Man With Golden Gun in a paragraph explaining why Francisco "Pistols" Scaramanga became a homicidal murderer for hirer Scaramanga's supposed great sexual prowess is being discussed...

"I have also noted from a "profile" of this man in Time magazine, one fact that this man cannot whistle. Now it may only be myth, and it certainly not medical science, but there is a popular theory that a man who cannot whistle has homosexual tendencies.

More Unconnected Dots From The Jeremiahsphere

So, tonight I returned once again to that well of endless but terribly-pious non sequiturs that is our old pal Jeremiah, only to discover his freshly-posted latest take on the horrors of public schools. Let's deconstruct.
A new report finds that American adults who claim no religious affiliation increased from 14 million in 1990 to 34 million in 2008.
OH, dramatic and devastating! Until you consider that this averages to an increase of just 1.1 million per year, over that 18-year period. In the first year, assuming that average, it would be a 7% increase; and if you assumed the average increase for subsequent years, the percentage would actually fall from year to year, given the higher base number. There's no way to know, of course, what the individual numbers were, each year, because this item's agenda was to go for the big astonishing leap and conveniently ignore the time scale over which it occurred.
Now, while the report says that there is less "religious affiliation" we need to first understand that religion itself is not faith, and is a great deal of the problem we are seeing today. The Church has failed to deliver the true message of Christ to the people...keep in mind, I am not saying that most churches or pastors, ministers are failing in this endeavor, but that many of today's mega-churches with extra large numbers in attendance, are bringing messages which do more to satisfy the sensibilities of human desires ... such as: "Oh you are a good person," and "believe in yourself" etc, which does much to rob the true message of Christ and the Church, which states that we are sinners in need of a Savior, and whatever sin that we may have in our life, we need to get it out and start living according to God's Will for our lives.
Because Jeremiah has The Answer (c). And isn't it interesting how he assumes that "religious affiliation" automatically means his preferred flavor of Christianity? Because, you know, none of these undeclared religious affiliations could possibly be a lack of affiliation with Judaism, with Islam, with Buddhism or any of dozens of other faiths. Again, viewing the matter through the wrong end of the telescope. And I would like to see some examples of these ego-assuaging mega-church messages. Most of the ones I have seen are just asking for money.
Why are people being more skeptical of having faith in God? Well, there are a lot of lies being spread in our government-run, public schools, and those lies have been disseminated across the country in our public schools for 46 years. So there are millions upon millions of folks today since the starting point of atheism in our schools who have no knowledge of the truth, because it has been effectively forced out of the debate through the preaching of tolerance...and this is what happens when the tolerance of diversity, which leads to polytheism (the worship of many gods), which leads to confusion and eventually mayhem and anarchy.
Er, no. The article doesn't say that people are "more skeptical of having faith in God." It quotes the report it cites as saying that "most of the religiously unaffiliated in the U.S. are not atheists, but 'embrace philosophical and theological beliefs that reflect skepticism rather than overt antagonism toward religion.'" An important distinction...especially since Jer has just pointed out that religion and faith are not the same thing. Self-contradiction, thy name is Jeremiah!

It's a painful exercise in pretzel-shaped logic to parse Jer's subsequent linkage of skepticism with polytheism and anarchy, but let's give it a shot.

Lies disseminated in the public schools? What "lies" would those be, Jer? Simply not talking about a specific God in that environment, and leaving all that to Sunday School or non-Christian faiths' vehicles for similar religious education...how is that a lie? (Of course I know he's dog-whistling for his nonexistent followers about e-v-o-l-u-t-i-o-n, but when he knows his arguments are going to be deconstructed this way he really ought to impose better standards on himself. This is pretty shoddy, even on his part.)

No knowledge of the truth, forced out of the debate through the preaching of tolerance? Hmm, seems to me that one Jesus Christ had a lot to say about tolerance. Jeremiah, as usual, omits those troublesome bits.

Diversity -> polytheism -> confusion ->mayhem and anarchy. So, isn't he arguing here that children need to be indoctrinated into cookie-cutter conformity with his own belief system, or it will all turn into one crazy cross-cultural reenactment of Lord of the Flies? Even for Jeremiah, this is a genuine WTF stretch! Tolerate diversity, and you'll have a polytheistic society? Surprise, Jer! Society already embraces many different faiths, most of them monotheistic like your own, but many polytheistic as well. Life goes on. Anarchy hasn't taken over. Well, except from that crazy teabagger mob.

And isn't it fun to watch Jer try to claim that believing in no gods (the dread spectre of atheism) naturally leads to believing in many gods (polytheism)? Kind of like saying that being raised vegan eventually, and inevitably, turns kids into carnivores.
Although the report may say that the majority of those without any religious affiliation are non-antagonistic toward religion, any reported findings like that will inevitably prove a great deal of reluctance on the part of the individual/individuals to share their true feelings regarding the matter, and it is my contention that they are hostile to most religions, the faith of Christianity in particular. Why? Because of the reasons I mentioned, seeing how the majority of people have learned from the atheistic school system for the past 46 years.
Reluctance to share their true feelings? Golly gee, might that be from having to cope with multiple instances of zealots like Jeremiah taking any sincere expression of doubt or one's reasons for doubting as license to mount an all out convert-or-perish effort toward the individual in question? You want hostility? There it is in all its glory: not on the part of those who decline an affiliation but on the part of those eager and determined to push their own affiliation on all comers. It's nothing to do with the public school system, whose fault seems to lie in its failure to stuff Jeremiah's faith down all students' throats indiscriminately; and it's everything to do with fundamentalist Christianity's penchant for aggressively pursuing the conversion of those not predisposed to agree with them, and then the marginalization of those who refuse to be converted.

Sorry, Jer. You have to share the globe with those who disagree with you. There's plenty of room to share. Just lay off insisting that we make our space look exactly like yours.
Something must be done about our public schools. The atheism must go. It must be permeated from the learning process for all those concerned.
Permeated from the learning process? You keep saying that. I do not think it means what you think it means.

----

All in all, a lackluster performance in terms of logic and cause/effect on Jeremiah's part, but a satisfactory restatement of his Greatest Hits. Can't wait to see what fresh tidbits he'll have for us in the coming weeks.

Back From Minnesota

I tell you it's a good thing I am a good sized (I.E. Overweight) man because I lost a pretty good sized chunk of my back side at the Casino the last 2 days. You don't need to be a Math major to know that the casino won the personal battle between me and it.


I wasn't a total loser at the Casino I did win 2 new pillows, 2 ashtrays, every bar of soap and bottle of shampoo in the room, some coffee, a note pad and 1 dollar on a scratch off ticket. The Contessa gave me the stealing speech and I said stealing hell I paid for this and helluva a lot more. I'd a taken a lamp if I could fit it in.

Since you can't black out Fox on the Casino hotel's TV (at least I couldn't figure out how) I watched Glenn Beck's show for the first time. You know what? That shit is damned entertaining! Don't believe me? Next time he is on turn him on the tv. Turn the sound down all the way on your set, play your IPOD and just watch him. I tell you he's great. He was wearing a black sport's jacket, a red tie and Blue Jeans and it all was about 6 sizes too large. I think he stole his clothes from Perry mason.

Sarah Palin's speech on the evils of spending ranks somewhere between OJ Simpson's speech against Domestic Violence and Bill O'Reilly's speech on sanity.

Hey liberal idiots! ACORN IS suing her.None of those scum will go to jail - they'll be "fired" and they'll pop up at another ACORN affilliate.You morons whine about FOX but your mainstream media and Congress had to be smacked in the head to even acknowledge what a bottom-feeding criminal organization ACORN is and that your racist,socialist Messiah is their biggest booster. Also Priscilla - where's your photo or are you a hideous, ugly skank who is just jealous of a hot young girl who happens to be conservative. Liberals are mentally deranged - you just don'd get it even when it's right in your face!

Yeah you're right Gregg We don'd get it. You type this illiterate crap and call us idiots.

Holy Hagrid!

OK, this is not only silly, but an example of the non-intellectual bent of the previous administration.

Latimer writes that administration officials objected to giving author J.K. Rowling the Presidential Medal of Freedom because her writing “encouraged witchcraft” (p. 201):

This was the same sort of narrow thinking that led people in the White House to actually object to giving the author J.K. Rowling a presidential medal because the Harry Potter books encouraged witchcraft.

Encouraged witchcraft? That's like saying that the film version of "Live and Let Die" promotes voodoo because it's partially set in New Orleans. Not to mention that Harry Potter is, well, you know, FICTION. As in a made-up story, not a how-to manual.

Say what you will about Obama's policy successes and failures, or his administration's level of commitment to a truly progressive agenda. At least the WH is once again occupied by a group of intelligent people who don't get their information from televangelists, comic books and the residents of Wingnuttia. I doubt many readers of this blog (I don't count you, Ranger) would for a moment wish to step back into the Bush years by comparison.

The Ones That Mattered: What Are Your Favorite Films From This Decade?

This decade brought us historical triumph and unimaginable tragedy. It has brought out two wars in the Middle East, the end of the second-longest dry streak in sports history, the absolute worst in our elected officials, and the hope and dreams of what we can accomplish from others, among other things. We have seen the rise of the New Media from The Huffington Post and social networking sites, and the free-fall of the printing press.

It has also given us an amazing ride at the movies. And I bet a few handfuls of them have moved, shaped, and entertained you in ways that still stay with you. My question for tonight: what were those movies you thought mattered to you the most?

Over the next few months, I'll be engaging a big undertaking: the 100 best films from this decade. Expect the list to begin sometime this week, depending if I have the time and i'm not bogged down with school work.

Down With Algebra

Talking with Jonathan on twitter reminded me how much I hate math. Not the you have $25 and the Compact disk cost $17.75 with tax how much change will you get back shit...that has a purpose I am talking about the X=Y + S-E T25XY shit. I won't go into just how worthless I think Algebra is...most of you will never use it in the manner it's taught no matter what they tell you (here comes 6 math majors to tell me I am wrong)

I'll tell you a story. I went to a football game in Lincoln last year and after it was over we stopped at a gas station and I went in and bought the official drink of the Count Dr. Pepper. The pop cost $1.69 I gave the guy $2 he looked at me like I asked him to balance the national budget. My friend goes next buys a pop gives the guy exactly $1.69 and the guy says "exact change your the kind of customer I like" I am not making this up.

It's guys like this that remind me why I hate math. We are teaching more advanced shit to kids younger and younger and they come out and can't break $2 to give you 31 cents back. Truth is I was good at math once. I even was getting that Algebra shit down. But they didn't like the way I was doing it. They said sure your getting the right answer but you are doing it wrong...do it this wayor I'll flunk you I asked why they were driving through Iowa to get to Kansas they said shut up we're the teacher. I haven't been good at math since.

Monday Night Football Open Thread

Not a good weekend for either Jonathan or myself. Nebraska dominated their game but couldn't get touchdowns. It still looked as if they were going to pull out a victory over a top 15 team on the road for the first time since 1997 When Virginia had to go 89 yards in less than 2 minutes without time outs. But Nebraska had a busted coverage and Virginia Tech won 16-15.

I may post more on this game and college football later.

San Diego Also had trouble finishing drives and it too ultimately lead to doom as The Baltimore Ravens held on for a 31-26 victory.

Oakland beat Kansas City 10-6 so somebody is happy.

The Patriots lost to the NY Jets.

There is a jackass posting very rude insulting posts directed towards me, probably Ranger, so be on the look out for him when I am out of town on Wednesday and Thursday.

Anyway Miami and Indianapolis tonight talk about the weekend games or anything else you would like.

BTW In honor of Nebraska celebrating it's 300th straight sell out this weekend and breaking out the 1962 throw back jerseys this is throw back week. The Blog will look like it looked when I first started it in 2006.

He Out Lived The Political Movement He Founded by 4 Years

This is another of those if you can't say anything nice deals...

WASHINGTON — Irving Kristol, the political writer and publisher known as the "godfather" of neo-conservatism whose youthful radicalism evolved into an emphatic rejection of communism and the counterculture, died Friday. He was 89.

"His wisdom, wit, good humor and generosity of spirit made him a friend and mentor to several generations of thinkers and public servants," said the editors of The Weekly Standard in announcing Kristol's death on its Web site.

Kristol was the husband of critic-historian Gertrude Himmelfarb and father of neo-conservative editor and commentator William Kristol, an editor of The Weekly Standard.

A Trotskyist in the 1930s, Kristol would soon sour on socialism, break from liberalism after the rise of the New Left in the 1960s and in the 1970s commit the unthinkable — support the Republican Party, once as "foreign to me as attending a Catholic mass."

He was a New York intellectual who left home, first politically, then physically, moving to Washington in 1988. He was a liberal "mugged by reality," his turn to the right joined by countless others, including such future GOP Cabinet officials as Jeane Kirkpatrick and William Bennett and another neo-conservative founder, Norman Podhoretz.

He was a flagship in the network of think tanks, media outlets and corporations that helped make conservatism a reigning ideology for at least two decades, the "vast right-wing conspiracy" that Hillary Rodham Clinton would claim was out to get her husband.

"More than anyone alive, perhaps, Irving Kristol can take the credit for reversing the direction of American political culture," liberal commentator Eric Alterman wrote in 1999.

Vice President Dick Cheney was a longtime admirer and President George W. Bush, whose administration was heavily populated by neo-conservatives, awarded Kristol a Presidential Medal of Freedom in 2002, praising him as "a wide-ranging thinker whose writings have helped transform America's political landscape."

Kristol himself would regard neo-conservatism as a job well done, a "generational phenomenon" that was "pretty much absorbed into a larger, more comprehensive conservatism." But the Iraq War and the poor economy badly damaged the right's unity and credibility over the past few years.

Unlike such earlier advocates of the right as Sen. Barry Goldwater and William F. Buckley, whose National Review journal Irving Kristol found "insufficiently analytical and 'intellectual,'" most neo-conservatives were not lifelong Republicans. They were former Democrats, often academics, who broke with their party over Vietnam, race relations and what they regarded as the breakdown of civic order.

They shared the anti-communism of Buckley and others, but worried less about government spending than about moral and cultural issues, believing that people needed to change along with the system.

"If there is any one thing that neo-conservatives are unanimous about, it is their dislike of the counterculture," Kristol once said.

Of course I see the hypocrisy Anonymous. That's what I've been saying all along on 90% of my comments. Hypocrisy is not a right or left issue - it's equal on both sides of the aisle. And the folks here are real good at pointing out the hypocrisy on the right while ignoring the hypocrisy on the left, just as the folks at Fox Nation are great at "exposing" the hypocrisy on the left while ignoring it on the right.

The fact that I personally spend more time pointing it out on the left than the right is due to the fact that, at this site, 9 times out of 10 someone has already pointed out Fox's hypocrisy, but more often than not I get to point out this site's hypocrisy first.
Do you really want to tell me that those other networks are unbiased? Why, because Media Matters says so?

Like I said, fox has a stronger right wing bias than any of the other have a left wing bias, BUT we are talking 5 to 1 here. Look at the reporting on all six networks, and I think you'll find more left reporting than right.

Bill O'Reilly suports public option

No joke.

NINA OWCHARENKO: Well, it has massive new federal regulation. So you don’t necessarily need a public option if the federal government is going to control and regulate the type of health insurance that Americans can buy.

O’REILLY: But you know, I want that, Ms. Owcharenko. I want that. I want, not for personally for me, but for working Americans, to have a option, that if they don’t like their health insurance, if it’s too expensive, they can’t afford it, if the government can cobble together a cheaper insurance policy that gives the same benefits, I see that as a plus for the folks.

I have to admit, you folks really crack me up. I was saying to my friend the other day that if Fox news came out with the headline "Bush worst president ever", all the posts here would be saying "No, he really wasn't that bad."

First of all - and I first read this story on CNN.com, and they were reporting pretty much the same thing - This is what Carter said, as already reported here: “I think an overwhelming portion of the intensely demonstrated animosity toward President Barack Obama is based on the fact that he is a black man, that he’s African-American.”

Your response? "he’s not saying that all those who protest Obama’s policies are racist or that “any criticism of the president” is “based on racism.”". No, he's not - just an "overwhelming portion."

Look, are they're specific instances where specific people have criticized Obama because he is black? I'm sure there have been, no doubt. Is it an "overwhelming portion"? I don't know. As you folks like to say, "where's your proof."

Look, you want to accuse the guy who created the Obama as witch doctor" poster of racism, I think you have a pretty strong case. You want to accuse Joe Wilson of that because of two words - "you lie" - I think you need to bring a little more proof to the table. It seems that Carter's main "proof" is that Wilson is from the South. Look, I've traveled to the South, and I will back you up 100% when you say that the South is more racist than the rest of the country. Does that mean EVERYONE from the South is racist? And where are you from Jimmy?

I think what I find most amusing is that in an effort to justify what can only be described as a knee-jerk reaction to dispute anything said by Fox, you are forgetting that the number one argument made at this site for anything the right believe in is "they don't want a black man in the White House."

I'll say it again, you folks crack me up!!!

More Conservative Angst Over Acorn

No other news net work would cover this story because they are all obama all the time. Fairness in journalism only exists on FOX.
Hey, I got a new acronym. MITFO
MEDIA IN THE TANK FOR OBAMA

All but FOX. You have not any probably won't see this story on the state run media.
Next time, rather than simply attack the messenger, offer some legitimate defense for what the ACORN people were doing. She may in fact be a dim bulb but that does not explain the behavior of the people at ACORN. Besides if she is so stupid, what does that say about the relative intelligence of the people she "duped"?

You people are disgusting. You are souless. What's your agenda? It appears to be "keep poor people living in hell holes full of corruption". Lovely. Karma can be a bitch however.

Absolutely, 100% agree.

However, given that the MSM hasn't even heard of the Acorn scandel yet, I wonder how much effort is going into that verification.

This Morning ABC Anchor Charles Gibson was interviewed on a Chicago station, and when asked about Acorn stated he was unaware of what the story was. Last Friday, White House Press Sec. Robert Gibbs stated that he was unaware of the march on Washington the following day.

Say what you will about the Newshound readers, but they are more up to date than the White house and the MSM combined.


And given the fact that both the Maryland AG and the Baltimore DA campaigned for Obama (not just supported - campaigned for) has nothing to do with anything, right?

So what if she didn't know about the housing fraud!!! She uncovered some issues that are seriously against the law (tax fraud, prostitution to name some tiny ones). If the police head into a bad part of town, and happen upon some prostitution going on, then they STILL FOUND SOMETHING THAT WAS ILLEGAL. Why don't you guys praise the fact that we are stopping illegal activity in our country?? And on top of that, you do realize that you were helping to fund tax fraud and prostitution (through your tax dollars unless you are on great old welfare system)

Note that this is the very same Ellen who threw a massive temper tantrum because her pedophile-coddling hero former VT judge Edmund Cashman was run off the bench for giving light sentences to child rapists due to the criticism from the folks she despises most - Fox News - claiming we do NOT have a first amendment right to say anything because we aren't residents of Vermont. You retarded news hacks ought to volunteer as ACORN's defense team since you think you can explain away all the criminal activity those folks were caught red-handed doing.


ACORN Draws The Squirrels

Next stop for ACORN, the RICO act.

One can only wonder how deep acorns roots go into this administration.


This is going tto be fun to watch unfold.

OT
Why would anyone in their right mind support ACORN after the voter fraud, the ACORN 8, and now this (which is supposedly going to get even better today)?? I'm embarrassed that both my state's senators voted to NOT cut ACORN funding...
I think its pretty clear from the videos that what ACORN is and has been doing is a disgusting use of taxpayer funds. They are completely corrupt. Facts? Whats there to argue watch the videos its clear as day.

I can't see why any idiot would actually defend ACORN because they got caught.

The OTHER media won't cover it because it is detrimental to their beloved president. Just like they didn't cover VanJones. What a loser that guy is. So much corruption in this administration so soon. So much for the great unifier of the nation.

Justice Fraul
ACORN is corrupt. Any agency corrupt and taking in tax dollars should be cut off.

As for the MSM, it is extremely obvious that they won't report anything critical to the current prez. That's unfortunately. If I wanted a news filter, I'd filter it myself.

Love Dave and no I'm not a racist because I have this view.
You leftists never cease to amaze me. The total conjecture of what Ms. Giles knew about ACORN before all this started totally circumvents the actual corruption caught on tape? My goodness, they thought there was nothing wrong with underage prostitution! Michael Savage is right: "Liberalism is a mental disorder".
Ummmm ... if you don't susspect someone of foul play then what is the point of "investigating" it???!! How Ironic that a person who has an openly (and misguided) Anti-Fox News Agenda who thinks of them selves as assisting the people of the world with the "TRUTH" would attack another person who is doing the SAME EXACT THING! This web site is a joke and if I wasn't looking for more info on this young lady I would have never found it!
Didn't ACORN have a rather famous lawyer advising them a couple of years back? Curious how it seems they are all on the same page as far as tax/legal/loophole advice goes. Surly this cannot possibly reflect on their previous lawyer... The people he surrounds himself within no way reflects upon him.

Is the change we voted for?

I love hearing oracles like "Ellen" declare that Hannah Giles is a "dim-bulb." Surly she doesn't shine with the same self-perceived brilliance of "Ellen" but she seemed fairly intelligent to me.


I am not worried about Acorn taking down Obama. He is doing a good enough job himself.
I chuckled at this quote. Have you seen the rating for those two shows lately? Look...l just want news to be reported and corruption to be outed no matter WHO is committing it regardless of the politics.

It's funny, but every network including FOX reported ad nauseum on the Mark Sanford story. A story that really isn't a story unless he used taxpayer dollars to fund his Argentine trysts in my opinion.

Perhaps CBS or ABC should have investigated ACORN themselves or made a deal with the college kids first so FOX wouldn't be getting all the credit and distancing themselves even further in the ratings.
Poor Centurion,your moral compass is so skewed by your political bent you have an inability to know or do the right thing. Let's see, denigrating the messenger does what...eliminates and distorts the need to acknowledge the true crime, the corruption, the offer to assist setting up a brothel for underage girls? You remind me of the lawyer that attempts to persuade a jury that the girl really did deserve the violate rape..after all, look how she packaged herself in a sexy outfit. We would all benefit our country if we refused to swap our basic integrity and moral compass for anything temporal, including our politics. In a paraphrase of Rodney King, "can' we all just do the right thing"?
wpould like to know if she has been invited on any other network besides fox?????

Hell no, the alphabet stations don't even know about what's going on with acorn.

Charlie Gibson embarrassed himself on a radio interview by saying as much.

Acorn is history, and the alphbabet stations will soon follow.

An Idea About Football Threads

Instead of having multiple football threads on the weekend The fault of which I admit is mine I propose we have 2 football threads very weekend and both of these could be "open" meaning one can talk about anything so our non football fans can participate. The First thread would go up early Saturday morning like around midnight and would be up until Monday. It would be the thread where we discuss all of the weekends football action College and Pro + whatever else anybody wanted to talk about.

The Second thread would be posted on Monday it would be a recap-Monday Night Football thread Open thread. Again it would be open to all topics not just football. This way instead of 5 weekend football threads there will be 2.

This is the first such Monday Night Open Thread. Two Games Tonight Buffalo Vs New England and Roachman vs Jonathan.

Gus Johnson Has A Baby Calling Bengals-Broncos Game

I hate to take break from Bob's nonsense but even if you are not fan of football listen to Gus Johnson literally shit himself on air.



A New Day And Old Bob

Look, i don't deny the fact that her father sounds like a whack job - assuming of course that Newshounds isn't being selective in their reporting, but of course they would never do that.

And she could be just as whack as her father, or she could not be. Look, Obama's dad was an alcoholic who abandoned his family, does that mean we should view Obama in the same light? Of course not.

What I find humerous is that in order to turn the focus away from the story, you make a story out of the "beliefs" of someone from the story - something which by the way you're pretty good at pointing out whenever Fox does it.

All I'm saying is that sometimes the apple DOES fall far from the tree. We all know people who are good human beings despite being raised by less-than-desirable parents, and we probably also know some fine people whose kids turned out to be assholes.

Either the story is real or it isn't, and if it isn't, O'Keefe, Giles, Beck & Fox will all suffer a huge hit, as they should. And if it is true, should ACORN be shut down? Of course not, but given their track record I'd be leery of funneling more federal dollars their way.

The Guy Sure Babbles A Lot For Somebody Never Posting Again

Well, I suppose that makes sense in Abbyland, if you don't consider that before the ACORN workers even knew there were underage girls to "help" they had already agreed to provide help for getting these two a house to conduct prostitution in, AND avoid paying taxes. But nice try Abby.


"Finally, finally, ACORN is fighting back – and it’s high time. In her statement, Lewis accused the filmmaker of doctoring the videos, saying that “it is clear that the videos are doctored, edited, and in no way the result of the fabricated story being portrayed by conservative activist ‘filmmaker’ O'Keefe and his partner in crime."

Lewis went on to say, “It is not coincidence that the most recent attacks have been launched just when health care reform is gaining traction. It is clear they've had these tapes for months.”
======================================
So which is it? Are the tapes fake (and if so, why did you fire the ACORN workers in the tape), or are you upset that they held onto the tapes until now? I mean really, if they're fake (ladies, can you say "false dismissal lawsuit"), why not fake it to look like it happened last week?


Somewhere in Northern Michigan, Michael Moore is rolling over in his gravy tub.

The absurd postseason scenarios

As predicted by Yahoo Sports.



The AFC picture looks somewhat realistic, though i'd switch the 2nd seed with Pittsburgh, San Diego taking the 3rd seed, and where the hell did they get Houston taking the South?

The NFC? A mess.

Seattle winning the West? Yes, it's a chump-change division, but as long as Warner and Fitzgerald are healthy, the Seahawks have as much of a chance as the Lions breaking even at the end of the season.

Dad's a tried-and-true Dallas fan, but I don't see Tony Romo manning up and kicking Eli Manning's ass, nor McNabb's. I'm looking for either the Giants or the Eagles winning the East this time.

The Count will bite my head for saying this, but Farve and Peterson vs. the North? I like the ol' gunslinger.

My Predictions:
AFC
West - Chargers (of course)
North - Steelers
South - Titans
East - Patriots
Wild Card - Indy & Baltimore

NFC
West - Cardinals
North - Vikings
South - Saints
East - Giants
Wild Card - Philadelphia & Carolina

How should I respond to this?

This was left on my last blog about Joe Wilson:

Anonymous said...

Rep. Wilson is owed an apology, not the Great OZbama or wicked witch Pelosi and her flying monkeys. The House specifically rejected amendments requiring verification of legal status in order to receive benefits. So, pray tell, why wouldn't illegals cash in on this program? Because they are law abiding illegals? Come on America, leave something for our kids!!!

Critcism of Bush 43 is un-American: A left-wing fairy tale

Mark Noonan says:
September 7th, 2009 at 6:31 pm
Casper,

Not actually - you see, its a leftwing myth that any conservative ever said that criticism of Bush was unpatriotic.

Mark - You're completely full of shit.

Does This Make Any Sense To You?

Since the nightmare was soon becoming a reality, right wing and conservative talk radio has been bombarded with the fairness doctrine act and how the Obama administration was going to take away the people's voice by controlling information; a sure sign of socialism. Even though I personally can see a sinister play by Obama's administration dealing with this act I must ask myself, why and can you blame him? Is He some kind of anti-chirst/ racist who is hell bent on the eradication of the United States old liners or is it that even Obama has seen Talk radio become a distraction, a hindrance and that Hannity, Limbaugh and friends have become a deter to Obama's vision. which isn't always a bad thing once put in its proper perspective where men and women of media can show they can be trusted and show some integrity by being responsible and honest resulting in a good, peaceful and productive dialogue as Obama time and time calls for but Talk radio has gone too far now with the Obama's address of today's youths, spreading all kind of fear mongering rhetoric. Hannity calling it "the indoctrination speech" We have heard of the old adage, "absolute power corrupts absolutely" well maybe that is what is happening in Talk radio. Maybe it is time that talk radio be scaled back but then who does it and to what extent in a free society?

Pres. Obama to address nation's children on the first day of school? Don't tread on our children, you socialist bastard!

My take on the right's new bitch-and-moan fest can be found at Jonathan's Corner.

That's Right Obama Is The One Who "Won"

Credit Roachman on Newshounds for finding this nugget.

WHY DO YOU MAKE RACE A PART OF EVERY DISAGREEMENT WITH OBAMA AND HIS IDEOLOGY? IT'S SICKENING HOW THE LEFT WING IN THIS COUNTRY CAN'T ACCEPT THAT THERE'S A LEGITIMATE ARGUMENT ABOUT "THE WON'S" AGENDA. BUT THE BLINDERS AND ROSE COLORED GLASSES YOU WEAR KEEP YOU FROM MAKING AN INTELLIGENT ARGUMENT. INSTEAD YOU HAVE TO PULL THE RACE CARD. GUESS IT'S EASIER THAN THINKING FOR YOURSELVES. JONES WAS A SELF-AVOWED COMMUNIST, FOR GOD'S SAKE! HE WAS A 911 TRUTHER. HE HAD NO BUSINESS ADVISING THE PRESIDENT. RACE HAD NOTHING -- NOTHING TO DO WITH WHAT FOX NEWS REVEALED. GET OVER THE RACE CARD, WILL YOU???? WHY DO YOU INSIST ON KEEPING FOLKS OF COLOR OPPRESSED BY YOUR CONSTANT USE OF RACE? YOU USED TO MAKE ME LAUGH. NOW I JUST SHAKE MY HEAD IN DISGUST.

Open Thread

Sometimes I understand a Van Jones just resigning instead of causing a scene but man it seems Democrats always bow down to pressure while Conservatives just say fuck it and keep going. Literally. Maybe by resigning Jones is stopping a bigger commotion from happening instead of causing one.

Glenn Beck is a centrist...so says Ralph.

Happy 70th Birthday to George Lazenby who may not have been the best Bond but was Bond in the Best movie and he was IMHO quite good in the movie.

On the one hand since football season just got here I am in no rush to get to November but on the other hand this...

looks so fucking sweet. I do believe it's going to be better than the similar 2006 Sinatra vegas box set.

Oh yeah open thread Labor Day style.

Shawne Merriman, what the fuck?!

Seriously, dude.

SAN DIEGO (AP)—San Diego Chargers linebacker Shawne Merriman(notes) was arrested Sunday and accused of choking and restraining his girlfriend, reality TV star Tila Tequila, as she tried to leave his Southern California home.

Tequila, 27, signed a citizen’s arrest warrant, charging Merriman with battery and false imprisonment, San Diego County Sheriff’s Lt. Gary Steadman said.

Deputies responded about 3:45 a.m. to Merriman’s house in Poway, north of San Diego, after a woman called to say she was choked by the player and physically restrained when she had tried to leave, according to a Sheriff’s Department statement.

Merriman, 25, was taken into custody. Authorities declined to say whether he had posted bail or been released, pending an afternoon news conference.

Tequila was taken to a hospital. Her condition was not immediately available.

Tequila, whose real name is Tila Nguyen, is best known for “A Shot at Love with Tila Tequila,” which ran for two seasons on MTV. The bisexual dating show featured men and women vying for Tequila’s affections. She has also modeled for Playboy and other men’s magazines.

Scott E. Leemon, an attorney for Tequila, said in a statement that neither she nor her representatives would comment publicly on the incident.

Merriman’s agent, Tom Condon, said he hadn’t heard about the arrest when contacted by The Associated Press.

Chargers general manager A.J. Smith didn’t immediately return a call seeking comment.

Great, just what the Bolts need before heading into Week 1.
I don't know what disgust me more: the fact that #56 put himself, and the team, in a bad situation before the opener, or the fact that the fans are blaming his girlfriend for this mess. Tila Tequila may be some skanky reality TV whore, but ti's never alright say stuff like 'choke that fukkkin ho!' or 'beat that bitch' or whatever. Come on, Charger Nation, we're better than that.

Mark Nooner On Health Care

As Jonathan Reported Mark Nooner is running for senate.

This is Nooner's plan for Health care. It involves calling more people doctor, insuring less people and um painting houses. Oh and "susides" for the poor.

Harry Reid has a challenger for the Senate seat in 2010

And his name is....Mark Noonan! No joke. He's running for GOP nomination to unseat Reid in the 2010 midterm elections.

I’m going to run for Nevada Senator - first working to ensure that the GOP nominee honored with sending Harry back to Searchlight is a rock-ribbed conservative and, second, doing the actual sending.

I attended a seminar this past weekend where a fine, young man from GOPAC laid out just what needs to be done to run a campaign. This won’t be easy. In fact, it’ll probably be the hardest thing I’ve ever done - just winning the GOP nomination will be hard, and then I get to go after Harry Reid, arguably the most ill-tempered, mean-spirited partisan Nevada has ever seen. And he’ll have upwards of $25 million dollars - a war chest designed to provide blanket slanderization of whomever the GOP selects. Let him try - I don’t give a rat’s rear what anyone says about me, and as I have no power, wealth or position on the line, I’ve got nothing to lose. Being a citizen of Nevada and the United States of America is honor enough, and Reid can’t take that away from me no matter how much muck he throws. In fact, being the brunt of a Reid slander would be a badge of honor for me.

Here's his website where you can read all about how awful Reid his and how he differs. Personally, I'd be fine with him running against Reid and beating him (he's a piss-poor Majority Leader and I'd rather see a Dem with balls lead the Democratic senate). Plus, he could give Michelle Bachman run at the title, dumbest and nuttiest mofo in D.C.

Straight Out Of Winnipeg


You May Have Been Following The Pac Man Jones thread on Newshounds off topic. They were going to sign him but decided not to because the people complained it sends a bad message for a city already struggling with crime. On behalf of the United States...struggling with crime? Winnipeg? BWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!

Winnipeg is Canada's murder capital.

Manitoba is the deadliest province in Canada, according to a Statistics Canada report released Thursday.

There were 62 homicides in Manitoba last year — the highest number since data were first collected in 1961, and up from 39 killings in 2006.

On a per-capita basis, Manitoba recorded the highest homicide rate of all the provinces, at 5.22 per 100,000, almost double the rates of second-place Saskatchewan and third-place Alberta.

Among major cities, Winnipeg led with 3.55 homicides per 100,000 people.

Edmonton was second at 3.28 and Calgary was third at 3.14.

Five of Winnipeg's homicides were committed with firearms, and five were gang-related, according to Statistics Canada.

Nationally, police reported 594 homicides in Canada in 2007, 12 fewer than in 2006, and a rate of 1.8 per 100,000.

3.55? 3.28? 3.14? What are these grade point averages? They can't be murder rates. You know what they call a major city in the US with a 3.55 gra...err Murder rate? Me neither it doesn't exist.

For Comparisons...

Winnipeg Proper has 633,000 people and 739,00 in the metro. Omaha Nebraska has 438,000 and a metro of 837,000 people. Omaha's murder rate was 7.9 in 2006 9.7 in 2007. That last figure was inflated a bit by two mass shootings to start and end the year 7.9 is about normal. Now despite the fact that they like to pretend otherwise Omaha's crime rate while high for the Midwest is moderate for a city it's size.

Now I have been to Calgary. I didn't much like it. Not because of that awful crime rate but because I swore they closed the city at 7. But I couldn't believe how unbelievably clean the city was. I have also been to London, Ontario and found it also to be an unbelievably clean city. The year I was in London was 2005 they had their highest murder total ever. 14. Again Bwahahahahahahaha!

The fairly small town of Regina Saskatchewan boasts (if that is the right word) one of the larger and by all reports poorer ghettos in Canada in it's northern sector I have even found an article calling it the " Detroit" of Canada... again "bwahahahahahahahahaha" Find 100 people 50 Here 50 in Canada ask them where they would feel safer Regina or Detroit.

If Regina's "ghetto" isn't the worst in Canada near as I can tell Vancouver's is. Vancouver's ghetto is also apparently about 4 blocks long in the eastern end of downtown. Find articles from Canadians describing it and you would think it was as bad as anything Detroit or Chicago has to offer. Find an Article written by an American describing Vancouver's ghetto and again it's
BWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!


You silly Canadians with your health care and your safe streets you just do not get it do you?

I Hate Goulash

Goulash is in fact a Hungarian soup or stew This is similar to what my Mother and Wife (apparently) believes is Goulash. Goulash is in fact this soaked in a broth.


She swears she doesn't read this blog but since telling it to her face has done me no good Maybe by posting this the message will get out.

Many a man has complained that a wife's cooking is not up to the standards of his Mothers and many a wife has countered with cook it yourself. Let me just get this out right now. The Contessa's cooking most nights is a million times better than my mothers. My mom can bake like nobody's business but she can not by (her own admission) cook for shit. However for whatever reason my wife takes cooking advice from my Mother about what I like and how to cook it. I have told her that this woman whom I dearly love has no idea what she is talking about on the subject of cooking.

Now The Contessa has taking some meals that I have formerly disliked such as roast and Potatoes and made me a believer now that I know that Roast was meant to be juicy and the potatoes were not meant to be lethal weapons but I never have and never will like Goulash.

I know my mom swears I love her goulash but really it's...well godawful. In the first place what my mom calls Goulash and what is in fact goulash are two different things. In the second place if my Mom KNEW how to make goulash I still would dislike it. The Idea of a mixture of pasta, Meat and Soup may do it for some but for me it's just...nasty. It smells bad and tastes worse. I think sometimes people forget that despite the Name the closest I have ever been to Budapest is Brantford Ontario. I have told the Contessa this and still she insists I like Goulash cause My Mother said so. Wouldn't I know this for myself?

Now I have no doubt the Contessa couldn't get creative and come up with something that involves the ingredients of Goulash and make a very tasty meal but do not ask my Mother for advice for God sakes. Thursday is my Mother's 65th Birthday Friday I am taking both the Contessa and My Mother out to eat. I am going to tell them You stop telling her what I like to eat and you stop listening to this woman. Of course all that will do is buy me two weeks with out Goulash.
