The Tea-Baggers Is Comin!

So tomorrow they be busing in the great unwashed to have themselves a tea-bagging soiree at Edward Zorinsky Park. (By the way isn't it funny they are holding this meeting of the minds in a park named after a Democratic politician?) Of course they damn sure aren't holding this thing in Miller Park. I know of nobody locally who is going to this thing and I am proud to say I have many a friend and acquaintance who think that my politics sucks. (Of course unlike the tea-baggers who are performing tomorrow my friends all have a real job.) Yes the same people you will see here tomorrow are the same paid off-Broadway performers you saw in Nevada over the weekend. All though this is Tea-Baggers gone wild and not A Little Night Music some how Stephen Sondheim's Send In The Clowns is still oddly appropriate.

If I could go I admit it would be at the very least curious to see Dickerhoof, Fleckenstein and Cubachi have a 3 way in public. This of course is far from a good enough reason to get me to waste my precious time watching these home school reject jerkoffs protesting G.W. Bush's tax code while claiming it is Obama's. So when I get home tomorrow from my place of employment I will do what I pretty much always do when the weather is nice. Grab a paper, a book, ( for Ranger, Dog Fucker and Ralph a book is this thing with words that you read providing you have the capability to do so.) my ipod, sit out on my porch and relax with Sinatra.

While I am sure that the 5 people there who are actually from here will warn the others to not go east of a certain point because that is where all of the non white's live I still have to be careful with my Dogs. Since I know that A. I am being stalked. B. My Stalker is a tea-bagger and C. He admits to fucking dogs. What a quality group these off Broadway tea-baggers are.

Will Ralph Give The Interview?

He's being asked to provide an interview on "the person behind the blog." Too brilliant! Do you think he'll take them up on their offer, or will the Rapture Ralph for President campaign have to step in on his behalf?

Do it, Ralph. Please, please, pretty please!

Ok, apps have now gone too far

Now there's an app that can locate potential one-night stands. So I guess the Internet and Live Links aren't enough methods to find a fuck buddy, now we need a phone app to help us. As Bob Dylan once sang, "The times, they are a-changin.'"

Jesus On Tea-Baggers

Paying Taxes to Caesar
13Later they sent some of the Pharisees and Herodians to Jesus to catch him in his words. 14They came to him and said, "Teacher, we know you are a man of integrity. You aren't swayed by men, because you pay no attention to who they are; but you
teach the way of God in accordance with the truth. Is it right to pay taxes to Caesar or not? 15Should we pay or shouldn't we?"

But Jesus knew their hypocrisy. "Why are you trying to trap me?" he asked. "Bring me a denarius and let me look at it." 16They brought the coin, and he asked them, "Whose portrait is this? And whose inscription?"
"Caesar's," they replied.

17Then Jesus said to them, "Give to Caesar what is Caesar's and to God what is God's."
And they were amazed at him.

Partisan hackery never takes a day off

At Blogs For Victory, Mark Noonan can assure you that facts will never get in the way of smearing the Democrats to fit his narrow-minded reality. A fringe blogger was arrested for making death threats at House Minority Whip Eric Cantor (R-VA) today, which is a good thing. I strongly disagree with Cantor on many issues, but making death threads at an important member of the U.S. Congress is always a serious matter, no matter who it is. That said, in Mark Noonan's book, that makes him an Obama supporter.

Given liberal rhetoric, Obama should be forced to apologize for this. I mean, if we conservatives are going to be held responsible for all actions of anyone who can even in the remotest degree be connected to us, then it is logical that the liberal’s leader should bear responsibility for kook actions of his own donors.

Yeah, if that were only, you know, the truth.
The man in question Norman Leboon, one year ago, made death threats at President Obama. Not a peep from Noonan condemning this loose cannon, but he clearly expects and demands that President Obama apologize for the actions of a man who threatened his life 12 months ago.

So will Noonan be the bigger man and issue some sort of a correction or apology for his "snap judgment" in the Series Of Tubes? Don't hold your breath.

The RNC Loves Them Some Titty Bars

The party of family values strikes again

WASHINGTON – The Republican National Committee spent $1,946 last month at a sex-themed Hollywood club that features topless dancers and bondage outfits. Now the GOP wants its money back.

Listed in a monthly financial report, the amount is itemized as expenses for meals at Voyeur West Hollywood.

RNC spokesman Doug Heye said Monday the committee doesn't know the details of how the money was spent, all who may have attended or the nature of the outing, except to say it was an unauthorized event and that the expenditure was inappropriate.

The RNC will be reimbursed by Erik Brown of Orange, Calif., the donor-vendor who billed the committee for the club visit, Heye said.

Brown did not respond to an e-mail and phone message seeking comment. The transaction was first reported by the Daily Caller.

Since November, the RNC has paid Brown's company, Dynamic Marketing Inc., about $19,000 for printing and direct-mail services, campaign spending reports show. He has contributed several thousand dollars to the party.

The most recent financial disclosure report said the RNC spent more than $17,000 for private planes in February and nearly $13,000 for car services. Heye said such services are used only when needed.

The $1,946 for meals at Voyeur West Hollywood was the most eye-catching item in the monthly report. RNC Chairman Michael Steele, whose spending decisions have angered some donors in this midterm election year, had nothing to do with the nightclub expenditure, Heye said.

The conservative group Concerned Women for America said the RNC should disclose more about the episode.

"Did they really agree to reimburse nearly $2,000 for a bondage-themed night club?" group president Penny Nance asked in a statement. "Why would a staffer believe that this is acceptable, and has this kind of thing been approved in the past?"

Does Anybody Speak Dog Fucker?

the pussies all ran away. Scotty "that aint me, I am three people and p. moved to another state" H. is my bitch. Stephen "that aint me, my name is not Stevie" is my bitch. John T "I dont know who the hell you are talking about" is my bitch. Robert "Oh fuck he found me" Stephen is my bitch.

Oh Count, if anyone is unemployed, its little schmucky Scotty Puss Puss. The dumbass cant hold a job. Now you dumbfucks can go back and play at your "Ranger Bob" site. HAHAHHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA

I notice he fantasizes a lot about bitches...hmm

Explain This To Me

I am going on a trip to Alaska this summer. I am not a drinker which is too bad because anything short of 48 proof I can take on a plane by the gallon and if I drink myself into a stuper and make your life a living hell on the plane well so be it. I am a cigar smoker. I have a small gold plated lighter with my initials on it. Because it is a "cigar" lighter I.E. a "torch" lighter and I can not even pack my cigar lighter in my luggage. How fucking stupid is this? How in the world am I going to do anything that would endanger anybody with a lighter that is in my suitcase in the luggage compartment? I have a cigar cutter, well several actually, but the one I like has a top that pops up that you insert into the cap of the cigar (cigar punch) and it makes a hole in the cap from which you draw the smoke. That's probably illegal as well. I mean that could be used as a weapon to an unsightly ring on your hand that goes away if you rub it.

Can You Think Of A Better Title?

Karl Rove, who famously got beat up by a girl when he was a boy, has a book out called "Courage and Consequence" I just hope that he also put the book on CD or audio cassette so it's intended audience can enjoy it.

On an unrelated note I just went over and saw this treasure from our good, and very much missed, friend Yakki's blog...

What more could we expect from hypocrite houndy

Over on the Dollar Dump they had a very lengthy discussion about Ann Coulter cancelling her speech in Ottawa Canada because of protestors. Yet leave it up to hypocrite houndy to defend her:

Julie, OK, so Coulter is a Pundit/Satirist. Who's to say she's not? So she offends a few people? It's all comedy to me. No different than Maher or others. People who are offended by that kind of humor need to get a life. I'll defend her all day long. I see no hate in her. She just has a different way of expressing her outrage at waht goes on in today's world. No one is going to die. No one is harmed. Unless you consider being "offended" harmed. Too many whiners in the world.

Now this is from a guy that finds hatred for Fox in every article the NewsHounds post, but he can't seem to find any hatred in Coulter's rants.

Then we have this from the brilliant one at the Dump:

I won't defend what Coulter said, but I will repeat the no American should comfortable with Canadian speech laws to the point where they can blithely state the facts of her being threatened with them, without adding that they fly in the face of our Constitutional rights.

Now this woman doesn't quite realize Canada isn't ruled under the US Constitution. I've been to different blogs and saw RWers screaming the same thing about the first Amendment. Do they actually think the US Constitution covers the whole world? Are they that damn dumb?

This is the best you could come up with?

Come on, Mark, you can do better than this:

What will actually happen is that health care in the US will move to Mexico where doctors will be allowed to practice medicine with only some minimal bribes to the local big wigs…the rich, including rich liberals, will just go there.
Meanwhile, Joe and Jane Average will be stuck with DMV-like service at government-run hospitals.

And you know Come on, Noonan: name those fake names, throw out some false "facts", expose those imaginary loopholes you made in your head! Throw us a friggin' bone here at Banned and Dangerous; i've got bills to pay here!

" care in the US will move to Mexico..." Sheesh. Are you even trying anymore, Mark?

Elite 8 Set For The Men





Sunday's Games




This Guy Must Know Nooner

Credit Media Matters
In an article noting reported racial epithets shouted at Democratic officials during a recent Washington, D.C., tea party protest, The Washington Times quoted Dale Robertson, founder of, as saying that Democrats are "trying to label the tea party, but I've never seen any racial slurs." However, Robertson himself was reportedly kicked out of a 2009 tea party event at which he carried a sign reading, "Congress = Slaveowner, Taxpayer = Niggar [sic]."

"Tea partiers moved to distance themselves from the racial and homophobic attacks. Organizers of several Florida tea party groups said in a statement that they "stand in stark opposition to any person using derogatory characterizations, threats of violence or disparaging terms toward members of Congress or the president."

At least 10 reports by congressional Democrats said they were harassed this week after voting for the health care bill. Congressional offices in New York, Arizona and Kansas were vandalized, and several Democrats reported obscenity-laced phone messages.

But Dale Robertson, founder of, said no one knows who might have yelled out racial epithets during the Capitol Hill protest. He said a Democratic lawmaker refused to accompany Capitol Police officers to identify a white man accused of spitting.

"These people could be anybody. I wouldn't put it past the Democrats to plant somebody there," Mr. Robertson said. "They're trying to label the tea party, but I've never seen any racial slurs.""

USA Today: Robertson "does not deny carrying the sign." A February 4 USA Today article reported that Robertson "was repudiated by the Houston Tea Party Society after being photographed holding up a sign with a racial epithet. He does not deny carrying the sign."

Noonan: conservatives never engage in hateful, extremist actions

Hear no evil, see no evil, speak no evil. That's Mark Noonan's take when crazed right-wingers threaten, intimidate, or harm other people in protest of a Democrat-run administration or policy.

Mark Noonan says: March 26, 2010 at 12:56 am

We don’t “turn a blind eye” to it because it doesn’t exist – in your side there are people who wrote books gleefully hoping that someone would murder President Bush…there is no conservative, anywhere, who would do such a thing…and if some lunatic did, we certainly wouldn't give him an award for it.
The hate comes from your side, not ours. It always has, it always will.

Mark, you're not only are you blind, but on top of that, you're completely full of shit.
How do you explain Timothy McVeigh, the right-wing extremist who slaughtered 168innocent civilians, or the man who gunned down Dr. Tiller, two examples of fringe conservatives who turned to violent measures because of politics? These intimidation tactics, along with the fanning of fear from the Glenn Beck's and the Michelle Bachman's of the fringe conservative element are from your side. That is a verifiable fact. You can't just sweep this under the rug, then run to your moral pedistal and lecture us about engaging in hateful action against the current government.

Childhood Obesity: An Editorial From The Count

Never one at a loss for Hyperbole CNN Log Cabin 360 has a 90 part series Children In Peril Childhood Obesity. I've said it before and I'll say it again. Children are not eating any worse today than they have ever eaten. So why are our kids fat? They get home and they park their asses in front of a computer screen or TV screen. Who goes outside and plays football anymore that is what Madden 2010 is for. I don't expect CNN however to place the blame on either.

Just to give one example. I watched game 6 of the 2008 NBA finals between the Celtics and Lakers with my nephew. After watching something like that when I was his age I would have grabbed a Basketball and shot some hoops. He said I'm going downstairs and playing NBA on the PS3.

The attacks on Democratic lawmakers over the health care bill? A bunch of liberal nosense!

This is outrageous. Despite the stories about Democratic lawmakers in the House, and their families, being threatened by right-wing loons over the health care bill passing, and the racial slus that were spewed at African-American congressmen, and the hoomphobic remarks launched at against Barney Frank, Mark Noonan has the nerve to say these attacks , threats, and whatnot, are nothing more than a fabrication. I am not making this up.

I call BS on all such stories. We know the stories of racial epithets at the Capitol on Sunday were false, and its my contention that all the more recent accusations are also false.

Yes, this includes Stupak’s voice mail – unless you can provide forensic evidence linking someone to it who has voted Republican in every election since 2004, I won’t believe its an actual conservative/Republican/TEA Party member doing it. Absent such proof, my presumption will be that its either a flat-out lunatic or, more likely, a false flag operation…such as has already happened many times since the Democrats first started to tremble in fear of the TEA Party.

Furthermore, we know from experience – and Matt from personal experience with union thugs – that the violence comes from the left. Unable to win an argument and knowing that if patriots get the truth out, they’re cooked, it is natural for the left to try either intimidation or slander to derail the opposition. They’ve tried intimidation, and it didn’t work – now they’re trying slander.

We’re on to your game, liberals, and we’re not having any of it.

This is how far down the right-wing has fallen? To actually deny that lawmakers and their families have been threatened with violence?!
What the fuck is wrong with you, Mark??
This isn't about some half-assed conspiracy theory that you can happily ignore and stick your head back up your ass.
This is about public servants being threatened becasue of how they voted. These reports of attacks, or mention of attacks is a serious matter, no matter if it were a Republican lawmaker or a Democratic lawmaker that was threatened.

Jeremiah Gets Health Care Reform...But Doesn't "Get" Health Care Reform

I've been keeping an eye out for Jeremiah's pronouncements and, doubtless, many misconceptions about the new health care legislation. I guess in the wake of the actual vote he may have transformed into a centipede for a time (not unlike C.S. Lewis' character Screwtape), because it took until today for him to hit the keyboard. And I do mean "hit," literally! Follow along as we document the disinformation.
To quote, paraphasingly, the Congresswoman Marsha Blackburn of Tennessee. "Freedom dies a little bit today," and of course, that puts into perspective lightly, the challenge that we now face with Obamacare poised to bear down hard on the small-business sector, middle-class families. Some $200 billion dollars in extra taxes as I understand it.
Clearly, Jer does not understand it. Either that, or he thinks that the tax credits being made available to families earning up to 400% of the poverty level - which would be $88,000 per year, which I would certainly classify as middle-class: probably even upper-middle in many parts of the country - are actually taxes. Same for those tax credits of 35-50% of insurance costs for small businesses. Who will taxes go up on? Individuals making more than $200k or couples making more than $250k per year. I'm here to tell you that this does not equate to "middle-class," Jer, and if you think it does I've got a great deal for you from McCain to go pick lettuce in Arizona for the apparently "starvation" wage of $50/hour.
The United States of America, my dear friends, cannot afford this mockery of our economic system. This will destroy capitalism and the free-market. Of course, the free-market is a joke to the communists who control Washington D.C., like Ron Bloom, Obama's Manufacturing Czar, who said in early 2008...

We all know the free-market is a joke...
Ron Bloom February 28, 2008

At least Mr. Bloom thinks so ... but do you agree with him? If you do, you must not be familiar with America's way of doing economics, the kind of economics that made this country great.
Destroy capitalism? Wreck the free market? Yeah, a bill that hands 30+ million new customers to non-government companies, with a mandate to purchase their product, that's really going to bring the engines of commerce to a grinding halt. Also, you've got to love how much Jer and his crowd adore free enterprise today, after two terms' worth of no-bid contracts that you'd think they could have mustered a teensy bit of outrage for.
If you agree with Mr. Bloom, you are probably more familiar with European socialist form of economics. If you lived through the holocaust, then you're probably familiar enough with socialism that you don't want to see anymore of it. You know what it's like.
The Holocaust and socialist economic theory? Kind of a reach, there, Jeremiah. The German government did funnel an incredible sum into their own war-making machine, striving for economic independence from a global economy (the kind of thing you'd think Jer would root for, isolationist that he is). But, on the whole, the economic foundation for the ongoing Nazi regime was the exploitation of the people and resources of conquered territories.

And, seriously? Jer ought to be ashamed for trying to leverage Holocaust survivors and putting words in their mouths in this vile manner.
History is the best guide and teacher, if need be, to help us in this area, because, as the saying goes, "Those who forget their past, are doomed to repeat it." And we surely don't want to do that.
Brave words from someone who forgets the past with regularity, superimposing his preferred vision on top of reality.
Mr. Obama and our current crop of elites governing Washington are doing just that, they are disregarding our past, with all the suffering and misery that was directly attributable to programs just like the one Mr. Obama signed into law yesterday, Big-Government Universal healthcare. A single-payer system, which means the government has complete control over every aspect of your healthcare needs ... they make your choices for you, and if you have a special need that needs immediate attention? You may or may not get the assistance that you need.
Did he grab your attention with the dog-whistle words "Washington elites"? (Funny how badly that jibes with the disparagement of "community organizers" during the campaign, isn't it?) Because after that it turns into a sludge of inaccuracy. First, let's hear about all this big-government suffering and misery - maybe from a gang of Tea Partiers on their way to cash Social Security or disability checks or to check in for a Medicare-covered appointment. Single-payer? Flat out WRONG. Government making your health care choices for you? Again, BS, big-time. Can you read, Jeremiah? Have you actually looked at the legislation or done any research outside your own head? *Sigh* Never mind. I know the answer.

By the way. It's President Obama. Not Mister. P-r-e-s-i-d-e-n-t. I know you don't like it, but that's the way it is. Cope.
What this bill will do, in essence, is give many incentive to retire early, and when this happens, then the number of people who are already on some form of government subsidy, subsidized by taking more from the American taxpayer than is already the case, then you add the new retirees to this number and you have an system that is overloaded demand-wise ... and when demand becomes more than supply, then they will ration the healthcare, based on the person's income, including other things that will likely be factored in as part of this administration's agenda, like age, gender, race.
OK. First of all, the people this bill will be of most help to are those already living on the edge. When you fall behind with every paycheck, this doesn't constitute anything close to an extra incentive to retire. There's a reason you see all those grandpas and grandmas passing out carts at Wal*Mart, and it's not recreational in nature.

Did he miss the CBO scoring? The deficit reductions? Productivity savings in Medicare?

And as for his paranoia about age, gender and race...Jer, that quasi-eugenics fearmongering just makes you look like a worse conspiracy theorist than you are. You might as well be talking about profiling by shoe size. It's embarrassing, OK? It also uncovers that you are speaking from the viewpoint of barely-closeted racism. Quit being so damned scared of anybody who isn't a middle-aged white male, will ya?
This country will look really weird in a few years from now, a lot weirder than it already is with the multiculturalism and political correct dogma that is spouted daily in our colleges and universities.
Ooh, that scawy, scawwy educashun! How dare young people actually aspire to learn something, to improve themselves and maybe the world? It would be so much better if we all looked like we came out of the same rundown trailer park, complete with our beer guts, poorly-fitting bermuda shorts, and cowboy hats with flag bandannas on them. But you can still flee from all that "weirdness" you so fear, Jeremiah. I'm sure there's a Tea Party event in your neighborhood with your name on it, and an incendiary sign provided by FreedomWorks for you to hold while you screech incoherently.
You see, this administration's goal is the elimination of charity altogether. They are following the lead of one of their greatest idols, Margaret Sanger.
Are you following the train of thought here? Health care opportunity leads to multiculturalism leads to abolition of charity leads to Planned Parenthood?

Nope, I'm not following it successfully, either.
With the elimination of faith-based charities, then they will have successfully cut off the financing of God's kingdom. The Church is responsible for the charity freely given from the heart that has helped so many in this country through numerous natural disasters, wars, famines, etc, etc. It's what has made our country great. Made us rise to the top. However, many have taken it for granted, and decided to trust more in the government than in their Christ-like neighbor, or community Church.
Ah! Now it's just faith-based charities the eeeevil Obama wants to get rid of. Did you see that not-so-subtle pivot on Jeremiah's part? Never mind that this administration has not only continued Dubya's program of "faith-based and community initiatives," but expanded it. Mustn't allow the facts to interfere with the rhetoric.

And just what is it that has made America "great," Jer? Free market economics, as you stated above? Or religious charities (presumably, religions you favor)? As Stephen Colbert would say, "Pick a side; we're at war."
You see, God's people are there to help when there is a desperate need...there to pick you up when you are down, and this is in the Spirit of Christ. So, then, you can go on and help yourself...and whenever you are doing well, there may come a point in time when you see someone who is down, and you remember how the church helped you, and so you continue that work on in their lives, by helping them.
And Jeremiah embodies this principle by disinforming the world on his blog - well, the handful of people who actually stop by, which must be a number I inflate by double- or triple-digit percentage points whenever I pop in - and doing his best to make you afraid, reactionary and paranoid. Very Christian indeed of you, Jer.
The government on the other hand, they're not like that ... the government wants to take other peoples money...tear them down, and then ration it out to you, just enough to keep you satisfied with little, but not beyond what they deem necessary, so that you will put more trust in them than you do God to supply your needs.
Government is constituted BY people, Jeremiah. It works to coordinate common necessities that allow a society to function and thrive. Call me silly - I'm sure you will - but I would rather live in a society where air traffic safety, interstate commerce, food and drug inspection, clean water standards, and even simple local services like providing a fire department and repairing potholes are things under the control of a government, as opposed to God, or even the church down the street. Even the Christ you claim to revere told his followers to "Render unto Caesar the things that are Caesar's." That sounds to me an awful lot like an admission that faith cannot do everything well, but has its own sphere, just as does government.
Well, if all goes as the Democrats are planning for it to, then many people are going to find out just how much they are able to trust in the government, and they may just get a big surprise. Many people, I'm afraid, don't even realize how badly it's going to hurt this country's working middle-class.
Yeah, that elimination of pre-existing conditions, that's going to be a low blow to average families. And they're just going to despise the ability for kids to be covered on parental insurance policies until age 26. Clearly, the end is nigh.

The fact of the matter is, Jeremiah? This isn't perfect legislation. Of the majority of Americans who approve of it, a fair percentage say that it doesn't go nearly far enough to solve the problems so many families and individuals face, and I agree with that sentiment. But once people begin to receive the benefits it provides, even the naysayers will begin to concede that the sky has not fallen, the economy has not collapsed (at least, not from health care reform: we'll leave Wall Street mendacity for another time), their burdens are eased and some of their anxieties mitigated. Those people will sit up, shake themselves, wonder why on earth they ever even listened to, much less believed, all the tripe you and your camp have been dishing up about Death Panels and so forth. And the narrow-minded cabal you support, that lines their pockets with lobbyists' cash while working to persuade poor schleps like you to vote against your own best interests through cynical ploys and whip-up-the-crowd malarkey? They will be seen through, and sent packing.

Maybe even by you. I don't hold out great hope...but I am sure you would be the last person to tell me that miracles never happen.

GOP doing what they do best

Whenever soething doesn't go their way: throw the political equivalent of a temper tantrum, while important hearings are delayed.

For his part, Judiciary Chairman Pat Leahy (D-Vt.) was livid when his committee was forced to delay consideration of several judicial nominees.

"I have accommodated requests from Judiciary Committee Republicans to delay the Committee's hearing to consider Professor Liu's nomination," Leahy said.

He continued: "For months, Senate Republicans have resisted efforts to enact important reforms to our health insurance system. But when the dust settles and the emotions are calmed, history will show that President Obama and this Congress responded to a pressing national issue, and proved once again that we can act with the purpose of advancing an important national interest. Sadly, actions like today's objections from Senate Republicans to the consideration of a highly qualified, historic nominee will be viewed as little more than petty, partisan politics."

Jim Manley, a spokesperson for Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.), objected to the objection. "For a second straight day, Republicans are using tricks to shut down several key Senate committees. So let me get this straight: in retaliation for our efforts to have an up-or-down vote to improve health care reform, Republicans are blocking an Armed Services committee hearing to discuss critical national security issues among other committee meetings? These political games and obstruction have to stop - the American people expect and deserve better."

Stay classy, Republicans!

Giving The Ladies Their Due

Tomorrow is one of those holidays in Nebraska that people in only a select few states ever bother to care about enjoy or celebrate. Spring practice starts for the University of Nebraska football team. You may yawn and say "so what" but trust me in these parts this qualifies as a big deal. Most years starting tomorrow the little cafe in Ainsworth will no longer be filled with little old men on medicare bitching about government ran health care but instead would be filled with little old men arguing whether or not Zac Lee's Holiday Bowl performance was enough to fight off Cody Green for the starting QB job in the fall. Not this year. This year for the first time in my life the talk will not be about the Start of spring football but about the basketball team. The Woman's basketball team of all things.

I am not a fan of Woman's basketball and that may be about as nice as I can put it. Even tonight as I watched Nebraska beat UCLA 83-70 and punch their ticket to the sweet 16 I couldn't help but comment on how um less than scintillating I thought the basketball I was watching was. I may be a "progressive" (I for one hate that term) but I have some old school thoughts about the excitement of watching women play basketball. I won't even get into the asinine practice of Major Universities passing laws that kill the very sport that pays for those Basketballs or softballs or tennis balls, and whatever else. It's kind of like passing something like a child's health care bill and then fund it with a product that you are working everyday to outlaw...but that too is an old bitch for a new day. Call me sexist on the subject of Woman's basketball but I am an honest one.

With all that being said It's time to give the 2009-2010 Nebraska Woman's basketball team the love and attention they deserve. In fact it's past time. When a team goes through their regular season undefeated and their only loss comes in the second round of the Big 12 tournament then they get a #1 seed in the NCAA Tournament and win their way into the sweet 16 they deserve the headlines. Also give them the entire front page. Don't get me wrong I am not one of the sudden 10,000 new people who flocked to Lincoln to see the women play Nor do I pretend this sport is something I have a longtime love for but even I, an old pig, can see these women are doing something damned special.

There will be plenty of time to discuss whether Cody Green with a recovering Zac Lee not participating in spring Practice can make a run at the starting job. Whether or not Nebraska will have Big 12 level receivers this year. If the defense can be as good despite losing Suh, Asante, Dillard, O'Hanlon and Turner. Hell we can discuss it tomorrow but for now put it on page 2.

Give page 1 to the Women. For 32-1. For a sweet 16 birth that nobody in Nebraska history, not the Men (hell they have never won a NCAA Tournament game) not the women has ever accomplished. It's fitting that It's our time has been their slogan all year because that is exactly what it is. With the 83-70 win tonight over a UCLA team that saw 4 of it's 8 loses come to Stanford and Tennessee ( 2 other #1 seeds) Nebraska's Woman's Basketball became legit nationally where before they were only a local phenomenon. Nebraska doesn't have the history err Herstory of UCONN, Tennessee or Stanford. So they were looked on as the #1 seed most vulnerable to an upset. The general reaction of ESPN and the national media has been yeah so far so good but will you do when you get here? This win tonight was proof positive.

I do not know how much further this team will go. Maybe they go to the elite 8. maybe final 4 or even the finals. One thing I do know even if you are an admitted old school pig like myself and woman's basketball isn't your thing let the women have the spotlight, actually they've taken the damn spotlight themselves, they've more than earned it even if it means looking for your daily football fix on page 2.

Stupidity personified

He is turning the United States of America in the the Socialist Country of Obama
Posted by: foxfan23 on Tue 3.23 5:20pm

Really, kid? The Socialist Country of Obama?

Under the health care bill, there's no single-player plan, or a public option. There hasn't been an attempt to seriously regulate the private sector. Did I mention the various lobbying groups still hold a vice-like grip on Washington?

Obama a socialist? Please, kid. Come back when you know what the hell your talking about.

NFL Fucks Up

Call It The Brett Farve Rule. Every rule that costs Jesus of Mississipp a game will be changed. New Overtime rules.

• Both teams must have the opportunity to possess the ball once during the extra period, unless the team that receives the opening kickoff scores a touchdown on its initial possession, in which case it is the winner.

• If the team that possesses the ball first scores a field goal on its initial possession, the other team shall have the opportunity to possess the ball. If [that team] scores a touchdown on its possession, it is the winner. If the score is tied after [both teams have a] possession, the team next scoring by any method shall be the winner.

• If the score is tied at the end of a 15-minute overtime period, or if [the overtime period's] initial possession has not ended, another overtime period will begin, and play will continue until a score is made, regardless of how many 15-minute periods are necessary.

The Rude One Knows His Shit

That or Conservatives Are Really Predictable!

According To Newshounds Today Glenn Beck Opined:

“I’m actually feeling thankful, surprisingly,” He said. Still upbeat, he added, “If you think this is over, gang… wait until you see what’s coming. They’re already starting on immigration!”

3/19 From The Rude Pundit: Here's what's going to happen after the vote on the reconciliation bill in the House on Sunday: Almost every Tea Partyer who was out there protesting will go the fuck away. They will devote whatever energy they have left to posting comments on blogs and Facebook pages. Their leaders, desperate to still be relevant and still draw a paycheck, will try to come up with some other phantom issue to whip up enthusiasm. But once it passes, no one will give a shit except the people it helps. The Civil War won't be re-fought. The Constitution won't be shredded. One or two states might try to force their misinterpretation of the 10th Amendment. Soon, Beck and Hannity and Michele Bachmann and Steve King will discover another Republic-ending crisis, probably immigration reform, and we'll start the magical cycle all over again.

Dollar Lies Once Again

Johnny Dollar

Look, Ellen has a post up right now about Fox ignoring the immigration rally and the epithets hurled at the Congressmen. Now she has an opinion, but it's not based on facts. The immigration rally WAS covered, and there were whole segments about the epithets. It's that sort of thing that leads to the kind of reaction Ellen engenders in these parts.

But this is what Ellen wrote:

Fox News Largely Ignoring Tea Party Racism And Immigration March
Reported by Ellen - Mon 5:39 PM
I can't swear that Fox never covered the big immigration rally yesterday but it certainly got far less coverage than the tea partiers.

HMMMM! Seems like Dollar is the one short on facts. But I guess that's what you get when you don't even read the title, let alone the article.

Andrea Tantoros Is Pissed Our Elected Officials Are Doing What They Were Elected To Do

From the Email Thread...

Andrea Tantoros

We know that under President Obama, Speaker Pelosi and Leader Reid the title of “United” States of America no longer applies. Though candidate Obama ran on a promise to change the way Washington worked, President Obama has only exacerbated it.

The change we can believe in has resulted in something that is virtually unbelievable. We know that there is now one thing left to do: since Speaker Pelosi couldn’t drain the swamp as she pledged to, the American people will have to do it for her.

This was something written by a professional GOP fembot and Fox call girl. You can read her whole scare screed here.

It was most likely left by somebody like the Ranger.

Health care bill is illegall and unconstitutional

Mark Noonan's evidence? He disagrees with the majority vote, so that's all he needs to deem it so.

Well, the Machine rolled over the people and got ObamaCare through. Illegally, unconstitutionally, but they got it through. Never under estimate the power of a corrupt political elite to get something done when they have the raw power to do it.

What was so unconstitutional about the bill? It passed with a majority in the House the first time, it passed in the Senate on Christmas eve with a majority vote, and it passed with a majority vote yesterday, with procedural hearings and votes on certain aspects of the bill. See, when the party gains a majority in the Congress through the voting process, they get to dictate public policy. Its called the democratic process. As Jon Stewart said, "You're the minority party. Its supposed to taste like a shit taco."

Furthermore, the Republicans have had 8 years under the Bush Administration to discuss health care reform, or bring up legislation that will lower prescription drug costs, or expand Medicare. You did nothing. Okay I take that back. You guys did allow an illegal war to happen on your dime, then defended it when shit hit the fan; you ran up the deficit with the Bush tax cuts to the rich; and helped bring about the near-collapse of the financial system in know: the stuff that got the GOP bounced out majorities in the House and Senate in 2006, and then the White House in 2008!?

Now that the Democrats are in charge and have decided in getting things done for the American people, you have the nerve to lecture to us, and bitch and complain about what the American people want, much less declare that a bill that was passed legally through the legislative process, unconstitutional!? Please, Noonan, sell your sob story to someone who's willing to listen to your hypocritical BS.

What HAPPENS to People?

So, probably like a lot of people here, Facebook has become part of my online landscape, and it's reconnected me with some old friends and acquaintances. It's been interesting to get a glimpse into people's current lives these several decades past high school, and in some cases we've had a chance to get together in person, which has been awesome.

Now, it's not like we were policy wonks as teenagers. I mean, we were all in junior high during the Watergate hearings. Politics was just about the last thing any of us wanted to spend our time on...well, this side of the Debate Club and Model U.N., neither of which was my crowd. So I don't know if some of the views I have been seeing pop up lately have been there all along, quietly, or if they've built up over time.

But among that segment of my Friends From Youth, every now and then I'll see FB posts like these:

"So-and-so just became a fan of John Boehner."

"Xxxxx just joined the group Proud Conservatives."

"Can this goat get more friends than Barack Hussein Obama?"

And, tonight, in the wake of the HCR vote, one Old Friend actually commented "This is how democracy thunderous applause" and continues to insist that it's all a "government takeover" leading inexorably to Communism, and that "the dems" will "try to blame Bush."

These are the utterances of people I don't recognize as themselves anymore. They've morphed into Fauxbots who fan Sean Hannity's FB page and post all kinds of the crazy.

What do you think happened? On the whole I don't comment on these posts of theirs - just let them go, as you might at the family dinner table for the sake of peace. (Though tonight I did challenge - with civility - one post which put forth the views of felon/fraudster Conrad Black as an accurate portrait of Canadian health care, a topic on which I feel I know a bit more than the average American these days.) I just find myself wondering what may have made people whom I remember as basically reasonable come to sip from the Tea Party's trough.

I can't honestly remember a time when my views didn't trend progressive. A level playing field and a decent shake for the middle class always seemed like common sense. Public education and access to social services logically made for the bedrock of a stable and competitive society. Trying to stick my nose into other people's bedrooms or churches or lack of a church? Rude and disrespectful of their choices and intelligence. And shrinking government down to nothing? Please. I like having paved roads, safe drinking water, national parks, and a fire department.

Liberalism was always the default, the sane position to hold, from my perspective. So now, to find people whose names and faces I know - rather than anonymous wingnuts on the Series Of Tubes - throwing around viewpoints at such a 180 from my own basic settings is perplexing and unsettling. Not to mention unexpected.

The closest thing to this, in my own life, was when my grad school roommate voted for Reagan because she thought he "was a nice man." (She has wised up, over time...)

If any of you have examples or insights from your own experience to share, I'd be grateful. I'm not about to de-friend anybody over there on FB just over politics, but I'm at a real loss to understand what has spurred some of these transformations. Surely the right-wing kool-aid isn't that tasty...?!

Dollar Defends Fox Nation

In his weekly hate post (btw, the only thing he writes) he says this about NHs Ellen:

Ellen doesn't make it clear, but Jesse Watters didn't write the article, and Fox Nation didn't post it. They quoted two sentences and then linked to the full piece. By the way, that link takes you the site that published the "inflammatory article": Talking Points Memo. Brodsky forgot to mention that, but instead focused on several comments talking about a "coming revolution" and "lock and load". Ellen pontificates:

Then he writes what Ellen wrote:

I know as well as anyone that readers' comments do not necessarily - and usually do not - reflect the views of a website. But comments certainly reflect the management decisions of a website run by professionals, with moderators and with the kind of resources that Fox News has. Furthermore, this is far from the first time Fox Nation has allowed comments advocating violence. Is this treason? It certainly looks like it to this layperson.That's odd. We were sure that treason was defined differently:

Dollar writes:
Treason against the United States, shall consist only in levying War against them, or in adhering to their Enemies, giving them Aid and Comfort.Oh wait, that was last-year's newshound definition. Be that as it may, we join in agreement with Ellen about casual discussions of revolution and violence. We're thankful that during the previous administration she didn't allow any of that sort of talk.

Now first of all Ellen didn't ever say Watters wrote the article. Then he says Fox Nation never posted it, they just posted part of it and gave a link to it. DUUUHHHH! Does that make a difference. I don't think Dollar could grasp at the scope of what Ellen was getting at in that article. They've bashed NHs Julie over there for a few days about 2 wrongs don't make a right. Yet Dollar reverts to that.

He gives 2 different links to comments supposedly from the NHs site of people talking violence. Yet there is no proof in them that they are from the NHs site. The second link he gives, the first commenter's date stamp reads: 09.14.07. The second commenter that is supposedly responding to him reads: September 14 2007. Now why would they be different if they were on the same thread on the same site?

Barack's Email To Me

And just to em I am sure :) I know a million of these went out but I'll post it for our Republican friends...

Count Istvan-

For the first time in our nation's history, Congress has passed comprehensive health care reform. America waited a hundred years and fought for decades to reach this moment. Tonight, thanks to you, we are finally here.

Consider the staggering scope of what you have just accomplished:

Because of you, every American will finally be guaranteed high quality, affordable health care coverage.

Every American will be covered under the toughest patient protections in history. Arbitrary premium hikes, insurance cancellations, and discrimination against pre-existing conditions will now be gone forever.

And we'll finally start reducing the cost of care -- creating millions of jobs, preventing families and businesses from plunging into bankruptcy, and removing over a trillion dollars of debt from the backs of our children.

But the victory that matters most tonight goes beyond the laws and far past the numbers.

It is the peace of mind enjoyed by every American, no longer one injury or illness away from catastrophe.

It is the workers and entrepreneurs who are now freed to pursue their slice of the American dream without fear of losing coverage or facing a crippling bill.

And it is the immeasurable joy of families in every part of this great nation, living happier, healthier lives together because they can finally receive the vital care they need.

This is what change looks like.

My gratitude tonight is profound. I am thankful for those in past generations whose heroic efforts brought this great goal within reach for our times. I am thankful for the members of Congress whose months of effort and brave votes made it possible to take this final step. But most of all, I am thankful for you.

This day is not the end of this journey. Much hard work remains, and we have a solemn responsibility to do it right. But we can face that work together with the confidence of those who have moved mountains.

Our journey began three years ago, driven by a shared belief that fundamental change is indeed still possible. We have worked hard together every day since to deliver on that belief.

We have shared moments of tremendous hope, and we've faced setbacks and doubt. We have all been forced to ask if our politics had simply become too polarized and too short-sighted to meet the pressing challenges of our time. This struggle became a test of whether the American people could still rally together when the cause was right -- and actually create the change we believe in.

Tonight, thanks to your mighty efforts, the answer is indisputable: Yes we can.

Thank you,

President Barack Obama

A Little Help For Our Friend Rush

Instead of bragging and doing a victory lap we should reach out to our Republican friends and help them all that we can. I will start by helping out our friend Rush Limbaugh

Costa Rica is the ideal tropical paradise for your vacation. Tourists can enjoy the pristine beaches and see whales and dolphins play. For Nature lovers there is a great variety of exotic wildlife and tropical plants. Butterflies and orchids, crocodiles and sharks, turtles and Toucans´ are everywhere. The rainforest covering the mountains are a paradise for eco tourism.

Life is good in Costa Rica, a friendly, democratic and peaceful country.

For action vacation you can surf, hike, do rafting, canopying, diving, deepwater fishing and snorkeling. You can go with a low budget or seek the more exclusive resorts.

For relaxation there are beautiful unique golf courses and luxury spas. The hotels have all the modern comforts in the most private and secluded environments.

Costa Rica has it all.

It Passed!

I gave on wating for the vote. I went to the Casino with the Contessa for an hour. I won a few bucks and the bill passed So It's a good night for all. Well all Except the America hating Teabaggers.

Mark Noonan is more Catholic than the nuns who endorced the health care bill

In his mind, that is.

kmg1 says:
March 21, 2010 at 6:24 pm


Are the nuns who called for passage of the bill also fools?

Mark Noonan says:
March 21, 2010 at 6:29 pm

Yes, sadly – we’ll have to take that up with the Bishop’s; they weren’t, perhaps, firm enough in Catholic teaching on this. Any Catholic who votes for this bill has gone directly against Catholic teaching. There’s just no way around that.

And, of course, the more traditional sisters – those, for instance, who wear the habit – are strongly opposed to this horrendous bill.

If I were one of the nuns who came out in support of the bill, and had devoted my life to the teachings of the Church, i'd be deeply insulted by Noonan lecturing me about how to be a good Catholic. Since i'm not, I find Noonan's holier-than-thou shot at the nuns laughable. Mind you, this bit of bogus grandstanding comes from the man who stated on his blog that total war against the Muslims was necessary, even went as far as to say that the the total body count doesn't matter, because the ends will justify the means.

I haven't read the Bible in a while, but the last time I checked, Jesus never advocated total war against his fellow men.

This is how js02 talks to a woman

Now what self-respecting woman wouldn't want to go out on the town with a guy who talks like this?

js02 says:
March 21, 2010 at 2:18 pm

“Women have a right to choose their own destiny regarding giving birth to children”

absolutely right sadie…but where we differ is that once a life has been created…its too late for the woman to change her mind…the right to chose is before a lady gets pregnant…take you for example…playing the whore and pushing some imagined right to an abortion because you cant keep your legs closed…

Nice talk there. I bet you pick up women left and right, talking about the opposite sex like that.

An Editorial From The Count

Shut up and vote on the fucking bill.

I Wonder If He Is A Terrorist

OKLAHOMA CITY — Here came Kansas, suddenly playing disruptive defense with a snarl because the Jayhawks were running out of time. Northern Iowa flinched a few times, but not in the final minute, when Ali Farokhmanesh found himself on a two-on-one break.

Farokhmanesh could have passed the ball, but that is not why Northern Iowa is still alive in the N.C.A.A. tournament and the Jayhawks are not. Farokhmanesh’s 20-footer stretched a 1-point lead to 4, and the Panthers held on for a 69-67 upset victory Saturday.

Ali Farokhmanesh ? Better back ground check that dude I don't like the sound of that name.

Teabaggers A Peace Loving People

Teabaggers threatening assassination after Bill passes

Tea Party activists have gathered on Capitol Hill today for a “Code Red” rally against

health care reform. Speakers at the event included Republican Reps. Steve King (IA), Michele Bachmann (MN), and Mike Pence (IN). The gathering was organized by Tea Party Profiteer organizations like FreedomWorks and Americans for Prosperity. ThinkProgress attended today’s rally and spotted a sign threatening violence if health care passes. The sign reads: “Warning: If Brown can’t stop it, a Browning can,” referring to Sen. Scott Brown (R-MA) and a Browning firearm:

Oh and there's this...

NCAA Tournament Day 3.

Now the President's bracket has really been torn asunder. St. Mary's beat Nova 75-68.

And the biggest upset of the tournament and the biggest upset in many a year just took place

Northern Iowa 69 Kansas 67

Another fool who believes that America is a Christian nation!

Courtesy of Twitter.

Please pray that #HCR reform won't pass. A Christian nation must depend on "Divine Providence," like George Washington did. #killthebill

Its God's plan that he wants to see His children suffer? What a caring, compassionate fellow.

Michelle Bachman: pray to God that health care bill will fail

Its because of charlatans like Michelle Bachman that remind me why i'm an agnostic in the first place.

We all need to consider that in God’s timing that he may have allowed us, as members of Congress, to be in the position that we’re in just for this specific issue right now,” she said. “Everything that all of us have worked together and labored for over the years, all of it could be undermined with this one bill. President Obama realizes that. The radicals that are on the pro-abortion left, they realize that. They could win it all. And the unborn, and the vulnerable, the disabled and those at the end of life could lose it it all.”

But it was Bachmann’s fervent call to utilize prayer and fasting to beat back health-care reform efforts that was the true highlight of the call.

“That’s really where this battle will be won — on our knees in prayer and fasting,” she told the listeners. “Remember: faith without works is dead. So we’re asking you to do all of it: pray, fast, believe, trust the Lord, but also act.”

Michelle Bachman is distorting the message of Christ and his life's work, and somehow, i'm considered the heathen?

In the Glove Compartment of the Wingnut Mindset

I couldn't resist this current gem from FSTDT:

[In a review of Victor Stenger's book "God: The Failed Hypothesis"]
Victor Stenger is a physicisist [sic.] and therefore does not have the values and common-sense way of talking that me and my friends have - this angers me.
Yes, and I'm annoyed when others don't share my hobbies, politics, or favorite color. But anger? And the leap to assuming that his dedication to scientific method negates any values or accessible rhetorical style he may have? Faulty at best. Probably the poster is just trying to say that Stenger doesn't appreciate the ignorance of himself and his friends, and that's not cool.
What makes me even angrier is that Victor seems to think that just by knowing "stuff" he can show that the gospels are wrong and there is no God.
Oh, the pointlessness of actually "knowing stuff"!
He should be more humble and admit that me and my friends are 100% right that God exists and that science cannot explain mysteries such as thought or how birds fly.
Er, no - it's the person who thinks he's 100% right who is actually in need of humility. You keep saying that word. I do not think it means what you think it means.
Only through the eyes of faith can we really understand that Stenger doesn't know what he's talking about, because by believing in Jesus we strengthen our beliefs that we have the answers and Stenger and secular humanists should stop dissing us - this is a Christian country and they are guests.
Oh, I get it - by believing, you strengthen your beliefs that you're right, which gives you more to believe, and believing in those enhanced beliefs even further strengthens your beliefs...damn, I have a headache.
Also, do not think that the false guess of evolution is true, because Charles Darwin thought of that while on opium and never practiced good science like Jesus and the apostles did.
Hey! The New Testament is now a science book, apparently. Though I don't remember the passage on "And if the poor have not a Bunsen burner, provide your own unto him, for he who shares not his scientific apparatus shall not pass into MIT..."
If evolution were true, Jesus would have told us about it, since he didn't Darwin was wrong and animals have always existsed the way they do now (except dinosaurs- people photoshopped pictures of them and fooled everyone and they never existed.)
Look at all that is false around us! Jesus also never mentioned television or the iPod or drive-thru super-sized meals or miniature golf or skateboards or microwave popcorn! Mind-blowing, isn't it? I'd text you about it right now except Jesus never told us about texting.

The poster also seems to think that dinosaur fossils, reconstructed skeletons and artists' renderings didn't exist before Photoshop. Someone telex this poor wingnut a clue.

My Trip To Alaska Just Became A Little Less Fun

According to Mudflasts Eddie Burke, A-1. Sarah Palin assboy has been fired/quit his radio gig in Anchorage. I was so looking forward to calling his show and now It looks as if like 90% of all other tea baggers he will be unemployed. I have had the "privilege" of communicating with Eddie through his twitter page and could tell you that he is truly one of the dumbest son of a bitches a live but his picture, again courtesy of mudflats, says it so well for me.

Eddie by the way is 30% disabled can't you tell?

Now "The Drugster" and Crybaby Beck are smearing an 11 year-old boy

Apparently, picking on a 11 year-old kid isn't beneath these cocksuckers.

Marcelas Owens, a young boy who's been appearing on TV and at press conferences with Democrats who are trying to sell their health care plan, is a new fascination for some right-wing pundits, who have been saying incredibly cruel things to and about the Owens' family and tragic history. Owens' mother died in 2007 of pulmonary hypertension – a rare condition that requires constant expensive medical care - after she lost her fast food restaurant job and her health insurance. The family's representative in the Senate, Democrat Patty Murray, talked about Marcelas at President Obama's recent bipartisan health care summit and ever since, the boy and his grandmother have been granting interviews and speaking up in favor of Democratic health care reform.

Here's Limbaugh's comments:

"Now this is unseemly, exploitative, an 11-year-old boy being forced to tell his story all over just to benefit the Democrat Party and Barack Obama …And, I would say this to Marcelas Owens : 'Well, your mom would still have died, because Obamacare doesn't kick in until 2014.'"

And here's Beck with his:

"That's the George Soros-funded Obama-approved group fighting for health care…Since all of the groups are so concerned and involved now, may I ask where were you when Marcelas' mother was vomiting blood?"

Lovely. Picking on a fucking kid. These two guys aren't men. They're a pair of fucking cowards of the first order.

So Many Holes In This Logic

Actually saw this at FSTDT

NCAA Tournament Day 2.

Looking at the scores it seems that today was a much more "sane" then yesterday. Really shocked Missouri won. Last time we saw them they were getting handled by Nebraska. Ranger Bob's "Alma Mater" Cornell beat Temple.

Anyway I haven't got to see any of the games from today yet because I had to go to a memorial service for my Aunt who passed away. Cigarettes got the age of 80. If every cig took 11 minutes off of her life... nevermind. She had the kind of service I would want. She was cremated and all they had in her honor was a service where everybody brought food and got together and shared some stories and some laughs.

Anyway as soon as Basketball starts up again I'll watch some.

Late Edit:

Kind of a blah day after yesterday's wild day. Really shocked that Louisville got blown out by Cal. I have to say that despite their 4-4 record The Big East the disappointment of the first round. Pitt and W. Virginia salvaged some Big East pride.

Michigan State and Maryland had battles but advance.

Duke blew out Pine Bluff. Ohio State beat Santa Barbara comfortably.

Sorry New Mexico State you aren't Texas and this isn't football.

Tennesee Vs San Diego State Real Time Thoughts

It Appears as if the game is getting ready to start just 20 minutes after the scheduled tip off time. This game follows Ohio's 97-83 upset of Georgetown which so far is the upset of the tournament.

Washington just beat Marquette my bracket is shot to fuck. This has been a great opening day.

Hey 13:51 left and we finally got a media timout. It's 11-10 San Diego State. Both teams missing a bunch of shots early. Something that could be troublesome for SDSU. UT is getting a ton of offensive rebounds early. The game is at the Dunkin' Donuts Center ( great name...not) In Provindence, Rhode Island. Crowd is dead you can hear the SDSU cheerleaders loud and clear. Announcers Verne Lundquist and Bill Raftery are working their fourth game of the day and you can tell. SDSU has to keep Tennessee off the glass better.

11:40 Left 14-10 SDSU. Both teams Ice Cold. They are not just missing shots they are about to kill somebody with these errant bricks they are throwing up.

SDSU struggling at the moment. They can't hit a shot. 8:29 left UT on a 8-2 run and it's 18-16

As I type that SDSU hit's a 3 and goes up 19-18.

6:14 Left 22-21 Tennessee. After a very slow start both teams are heating up now the last 2 minutes have been entertaining.

SDSU has a damn good Point Guard in DJ Gay.

2:30 Left in the 1st half and it's 30-24 Tennessee. SDSU looks completely out of sink at the moment and UT is starting to hit some 3's. It's been a very close game to this point. This is the largest lead of any team. SDSU has to get some closer shots. Or start hitting some of these 3's.

52 seconds left in the half and it's 32-26 UT. UT got the lead up to 8 but has failed to score it's last 2 trips down the court.

34-26 UT. SDSU scores 2 points in the last 2:30 minutes of the half and 5 points in the last 6:14. They are having real trouble getting a shot. It's a good thing Kansas went to Half time and they showed the last 45 seconds on CBS because my internet feed of the game became some douche watching the New Mexico-Montana game.

Wife just came in and commented about basketball on tv and Basketball on the computer...blah blah blah. I said yes what a world we live in.

UT Came out and got the lead up to 37-28 but SDSU has scored 4 points in a 5... Now 6. 37-34 UT.

OH That looked liked Saturday night at Dollars place. The UT male cheerleaders rolled around on the court while the mascot a person in a blue tick hound costume bounced around on top of them.

15:47 to go 39-34 UT.

SDSU just missed a lay up that would have tied the game and UT came down and hit a 3. 42-37 UT 12:39 left.

UT steals an Inbounds pass and goes coast to coast for a dunk 44-37 UT. SDSU answers 44-39.

10 minutes left and SDSU is sticking around. 44-41 UT. UT has gone ice cold. Also UT has 6 team fouls the next one puts them in the bonus.

9:18 SDSU takes a lead. 45-44.

They just said SDSU has never won a game in the NCAA tournament. Neither had Nebraska so I can't say much.

7:48 Left 46-45 UT. UT player took an elbow in the jaw and fell down his teammate walked over and kicked him. Even the announcers laughed at that.

Ahh CBS switched to this game making it easier to watch and type. Kansas now well ahead of Lehigh.

The announcers just commented on the number of airballs in this game. There has been a ton. timeout SDSU 6:05 left 48-45 UT. It's been a close game if not a particularly good one.

SDSU just missed about a 4ft shot by 6 feet.

SDSU just got hit with a horrible call and Steve Fisher is pissed. UT is ahead 53-50 SDSU missed a shot and the ball was tapped out both teams went for it and fell to the floor. Somehow they called SDSU for a foul. Even Raftery and Lundquist thought the call was crap.

Makeup call? 55-52 UT with 2:30 left and they call a moving screen on UT. But SDSU called for traveling.

SDSU trapping and they got a turnover. Sloppy game. Lundquist just said it was a relatively error free game I do not agree.

#15 for SDSU is cut and has to come out of the game. Steve Fisher told him to hurry up.

They just switched games with out announcing it that's nice.

That part about blood on the jersey may have been the Wake Forest game :)

Nope it was this one he's back.

57-54 UT with a minute left.

Texas and Wake tied with 57 seconds left.

Foul on SDSU.

UT missed both free throws but got the rebound

UT just hit a 3 60-56 UT.

UT just fouled Gay shooting a 3. 3 free throws.

He makes the 1st.

makes the 2nd.

timeout UT 60-58. 9.5 seconds left.

No foul there on Wake...bad call anyway back to this game...

UT at the line 7 seconds left...

He makes the first and it's 61-59 UT and Tennessee calls a timeout to ice their own freethrow shooter. No they probably want to set their defense.

SDSU a 3 to tie the game at the buzzer is short.

62-59 Tennesee final score. They play Ohio who upset Georgetown next.

Sorry Jonathan.

This game was kind of split as far as the pick and having watched it I would guess that if they played 10 times UT would probably win 6. They were a little better but not much. Very close matchup all night.

Crazy day 1 continues. Wake Forest hits a shot with 1.3 seconds left to beat UT 81-80. UT missed 4 free throws down the stretch. 2 by a guy who shoots 90% 2 by a guy who shoots 70%

One game left.

Montana and New Mexico and New Mexico is up by 1. Can another 3 go down to a 14?

New Mexico holds off Montana to end a wild day 1.

Tomorrow will be a little tough. I have to go to a memorial service at 3 so I may not get to watch any of the morning or afternoon games.

Rep. King and Crybaby Beck: Possible health care vote is an insult to God!

Jesus fucking Christ!

"They intend to vote on the Sabbath, during Lent, to take away the liberty that we have right from God," King said.

"Faith has been perverted," Beck responded, then repeated. "They are going to vote for this damn thing on a Sunday, which is the Sabbath, during Lent."

Beck continued:

"Here is a group of people that have so perverted our faith and our hope and our charity, that is a -- this is an affront to God."

God might want file a restraining order against these idiots.

The Hypocrite Koldys/Dollar

Johnny Dollar

Our pal AAP (aka Patsy) is still obsessed with this site. He's cutting and pasting comments here into the NH off-topic forum. He took a lengthy comment from yesterday by Ramjet and reposted it there. Only he did a strange thing. Ramjet's comment was a reply to Julie, but Patsy changed that to make it look like it was a reply to me! I mean, the comments are threaded so it's easy to see that it was a reply to Julie. Ten seconds of reading would make that obvious as well. So it appears that AAP just changed it to be dishonest. Yeah, well that was always the most likely explanation.

First of all I think what AAP did was put Mark Koldys in there to let people know where it came from. Secondly he's talking about someone being obsessed with his site when he goes through every nook and cranny at the NHs to find something to bitch about, just like he did in that comment. Hell, he even goes through the archives to find shit from 1,2 even 3yrs ago to smear them with. I'd call that a hypocrite.

And Dollar, after you read this and turn around and accuse me of doing the same thing. Yes I do read and C&P comments from your site. Just to show the hypocricy and stupidity of you and your sheep but I don't then just turn around and accuse someone else of being obsessed with another site.

BTW Dollar, you might want to take a look at some of your sheep. 99% of Blackfongs comments are about the NHs with C&P and Danny Boy, well I won't even go into that. He's an ignorant worthless POS.

From The Stalker

Hey idiot, no one ever thought you were Patsy.

Except for the 15 posts a night I have to erase calling me "patsy" I'll say one thing The Burger Cult sure doesn't seem to communicate very well.

We always thought you were some trollish idiot mid-30s guy who lived in his parents basement.
Now Stalker just insulted 3/4s of his fellow cult followers. I'll say this. I love My Mother but as my Wife could tell you by about the 4th phone call from my Mother in 1 night I stop answering the phone. My Father may he rest in peace was a wonderful man but given the fact that he and his son both had forceful personalities it should come as no surprise that we had our share of confrontations. I haven't lived with my Parents since I was 21. In fact I moved 550 miles away from them and wasn't all that happy when they soon followed me.

Turns out Stevie you really are a trollish mid-30s guy who does live with his Mommy and Daddy.

Congratulations for getting nothing right. My Name is not "Stevie" I don't live with my parents one of whom is dead.

We're not sure you live in your parents basement, but you do live with your parents.

Who is we? You and the Dog you're fucking?

This RangerBob site you have, do you have kids games and Popeye cartoons too?

No but lately I have had a lot of your stalking dog fuck buddies poluting my site.

His Aunts Worried And She's 56!

Obama needs to go...NOW!! Do you really think he cares for America sooo much that he won't give up on
healthcare for the American Poeple. Ha no. He is doing this to satisfy his ego. The Liberals in Congress just want to pass something to pass something! No matter if it is bad for America. My family is very worried about this bill passing, my aunt especially and she's 56. Heck I am worried and I'M ONLY 16!!! That must tell you something that even a 16 year old knows this is wrong and it's against the constitution. Are all the people who are "for" this bill going to be "for" it when they get very sick and a doctor decides you have no chance and it is going to be wasted money to keep you alive so they let you die? OH I know...they'll find a way to blame Bush. This country is going to hell if we let Obama and his inflated ego keep this up.

Idaho To Obama We'll Sue If You Make Us Give Our People Health Care

Idaho Don't Need No Stinkin' Health Care

BOISE, Idaho – Idaho took the lead in a growing, nationwide fight against health care overhaul Wednesday when its governor became the first to sign a measure requiring the state attorney general to sue the federal government if residents are forced to buy health insurance.

Similar legislation is pending in 37 other states.

Constitutional law experts say the movement is mostly symbolic because federal laws supersede those of the states.

But the state measures reflect a growing frustration with President President Barack Obama's health care overhaul. The proposal would cover some 30 million uninsured people, end insurance practices such as denying coverage to those with pre-existing conditions, require almost all Americans to get coverage by law, and try to slow the cost of medical care nationwide.

Democratic leaders hope to vote on it this weekend.

With Washington closing in on a deal in the months-long battle over health care overhaul, Republican state lawmakers opposed to the measure are stepping up opposition.

Otter, a Republican, said he believes any future lawsuit from Idaho has a legitimate shot of winning, despite what the naysayers say.

Wait So Conservative's Don't Like People With money?

Would anyone consider this reminiscent of Graeme Frost, the 12-year-old Baltimore kid as S-CHIP activist? S-CHIP critics were accused of smearing Frost because his family had two houses, three $40,000 vehicles, and four children in private school, but somehow couldn't afford insurance.

Marcelas Owens? Him I could understand supporting and not smearing because he's not some spoiled rich kid who wants everything handed to him.

The Poor Teabaggers really can't keep their story straight. BTW Socky I too was against this SCHIP bill at least the way it was suppose to in part be funded. It doesn't make sense to me to fund a health care bill by taxing a product that A. is unhealthy and B. You are trying everything you know get rid of.

Another Beckosite Opines:

Maybe I missed something, but I failed to see where the attack on Marcelas was. Yeah, Glenn could've answered the questions as he asked them. But he is a showman first and foremost. So it is possible that he was using this to set up a later episode where he does answer said questions.

For all the hate on Glenn Beck, you openly admit he is a spinmaster. So if that is the case, why do you hate him for it? If anyone should be rebuked it is not the boy, but the Senate Democrats who ARE using this story to sway public approval. Why are they not reporting the entire story, so that Glenn Beck has nothing to spin?

I agree with your assessment that Glenn Beck has at his disposal the team to research and answer these questions. But I've always felt that if you want to quell the opposition, then don't give them anything to argue.
