I’m good for a week or two

The Sports Guy contemplates the Ultimate Betrayal:

Vinatieri shanks the game-winning field goal, rips off his jersey to reveal a Pats jersey, then runs across to the Pats sideline and jumps into Belichick’s arms as Jim Nantz screams “Noooooooooo! Noooooooooo!” and Peyton Manning breaks out the greatest Manning Face of all-time. Would I sacrifice three months of my life for this to happen? Yeah, probably.

That would officially be the greatest NFL moment ever, and I’m not even a Patriots fan. (Well, they are my fifth favorite team. They were third, after the Vikes and Cowboys while I was growing up, but Jax passed them up and I found myself rooting against them when they played the Pack in the Super Bowl, partly because I like the Packers ownership setup, partly because of Reggie White and partly because I did NOT approve of their uniform change. Yes, I spend more time than you would imagine thnking about these things, including who I like less, the Seahawks or the Cardinals. (Answer: Seahawks, because Jim Zorn broke Fran Tarkenton’s rookie passing records. And they’re AFC.))

Upon further contemplation, it goes like this:

VIKINGS
Cowboys
Jaguars
Packers
Patriots
Bears
Saints (somewhat less now that they’re no longer lovable losers, except I like Drew Brees. A lot. Why didn’t we sign him??!!)
Rams (although still not keen on the St. Louis thing or the new jerseys)
Broncos
Dolphins

As for my bottom ten, from most-hated to least:

49ers
Redskins
Giants
Raiders
Falcons
Colts
Steelers
Browns
Seahawks
Buccaneers

Not keen on the Bengals, Lions, Ravens, or Cardinals either.

I hate, hate hate the 49ers because I was dating a girl from the Bay Area back when they were winning all the time and all the fake football fans who were lording it over everyone made me sick. The Redskins and Giants kept the Vikes out of the Super Bowl during many winnable years of NFC supremacy, the Raiders should be obvious, as with the Steelers. The Falcons have Vick and they just generally suck, plus the move to black was lame, the Colts = Manning, the Browns are contemptible, I already covered the Seahawks and the Buccaneers were NFC Central imposters who didn’t belong in the Black-and-Blue division. LOVED the move to new divisions, one of the best, most sensible move by a sports league in ages. Also, I liked their funky orange-and-white uniforms much better than the stupid “pewter” that they wear now.

Proud to be a Democrat

“The attempt to require political bloggers to register as lobbyists previously reported by Slashdot has been stripped out of the lobbying reform bill. The vote was 55 to 43 to defeat the provision. All 48 Republicans, as well as 7 Democrats, voted against requiring bloggers to register; all 43 votes in favor of keeping the registration provision were by Democrats.”

Remember, Democrats are the Champions of Free Speech. And I’m off for a ride on my unicorn. With Adriana Lima.

And I’m proud to be a Democrat, a moral exemplary
And you won’t forget my rectitude, because I’ll lecture on it daily.
I gladly stand up next to you and tell you how you should live.
‘Cause there ain’t no doubt I love this land
May Natural Selection, over a period of time sufficient to engender noticeable differentiation, happen to favor the descendants of the inhabitants of this artificial construction that is currently known as a “country”, although without necessarily discriminating against people, particularly those with darker skin, who happen to cross its arbitrary “borders” at any time now or in the future, although of course we know that it’s really all up to random chance anyhow and it doesn’t really matter since by then Humynkind should have matured enough to accept global governance under the United Nations.

Women and politics don’t mix

Thus spake the parenting expert:

Assemblywoman Sally Lieber, D-Mountain View, wants to outlaw spanking children up to 3 years old. If she succeeds, California would become the first state in the nation to explicitly ban parents from smacking their kids….

But Lieber is optimistic that lawmakers will find her proposal hard to resist. For the record, she does not have children and says she was not slapped as a child. But she does have a cat named Snoop, which her veterinarian told her never to hit.

“And if you never hit a cat,” Lieber said, “you should never hit a kid.”l

If anyone needs a spanking, clearly it’s Miss Lieber. And maybe the dessicated corpse of that Tennessee legislator who voted in women’s suffrage in the United States because his Mommy told him to. Yes, unsurprisingly, blame all comes down to the Mommy’s boys in the end.

I think it’s time to form the John Adams Society Against Suffrage, dedicated to the repeal of the 19th Amendment. John Adams’ wife famously once tried to persuade him into extending the franchise to include women, whereupon the second President of the United States turned her over his knee, gave her a severe spanking and ravished her thoroughly.

To which Mrs. Adams is reported to have said: “Oh, John, you devil!”

(Actually, he merely wrote her a well-reasoned explanation for why doing so would destroy human liberty, making a case that has been subsequently proven by events. But think we can all agree that my version is funnier, therefore it is more entertaining, and therefore it is more beautiful since the popularity of Us Magazine proves that beauty is entertainment, and because beauty equals truth, it is therefore true… or at least truer in essence than mere “documented history”. QED.)

I’m not quite sure I follow Mrs. Lieber’s logic, however. It’s true that one should never hit a cat, as cats are, quite clearly, for kicking. Does this mean that one should therefore kick small children? I don’t think so.

True

Joseph Farah speaks the truth:

When even a small fraction of that 64 percent of parents begin making decisions based on the interest of their own children – by yanking their kids out of government schools – the rigged, government-controlled indoctrination system will collapse of its own dead weight, much like the old Soviet Union did 15 years ago.

It’s just that simple.

Christian parents must stop sacrificing their children at the altar of Baal. It’s time to say no.

Better Baal than Moloch, I suppose but that’s about the only good you can say about the public schools. Get them out. Keep them out. Help them learn.

The rise and fall of Obama bin Laden

The Lizard Queen doesn’t take kindly to rivals:

Are the American people ready for an elected president who was educated in a Madrassa as a young boy and has not been forthcoming about his Muslim heritage?

This is the question Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton’s camp is asking about Sen. Barack Obama.

An investigation of Mr. Obama by political opponents within the Democratic Party has discovered that Mr. Obama was raised as a Muslim by his stepfather in Indonesia. Sources close to the background check, which has not yet been released, said Mr. Obama, 45, spent at least four years in a so-called Madrassa, or Muslim seminary, in Indonesia.

You’ll note that I’ve never paid much attention to the Obama hype. He’s not only a lightweight, he’s less electable than Ron Paul. The Lizard Queen could chew him up as a snack after her scheduled daily “relaxation” with Kim Gandy and one of the National Zoo’s Komodo dragons.

(The dragons take turns, they just can’t keep up with the indefatigable Ms Gandy.)

More likely, she’ll keep him around as harmless vice-president material. Any time he gets uppity, she’ll just hiss “zip it, Osama, or it’s Guantanamo Bay for you!”

My feeling is that Obama is playing for the vice-presidency anyhow. He’s not a serious candidate, his qualifications are no more serious than Tom Tancredo’s, who we are repeatedly assured cannot be considered a genuine possibility. But he should be able to ride the hype wave to the vice-presidency as long as he doesn’t overdo it and piss off the Lizard Queen.

The best way to tell is if he pointedly refrains from criticizing Hillary. A real rival would have her flayed and displayed for all to see, whereas a few gentle pokes to get her attention indicates a desire to play remora to her shark.

The global warming scam

A meterologist shares his skepticism:

I have been in operational meteorology since 1978, and I know dozens and dozens of broadcast meteorologists all over the country. Our big job: look at a large volume of raw data and come up with a public weather forecast for the next seven days. I do not know of a single TV meteorologist who buys into the man-made global warming hype. I know there must be a few out there, but I can’t find them. Here are the basic facts you need to know:

*Billions of dollars of grant money is flowing into the pockets of those on the man-made global warming bandwagon. No man-made global warming, the money dries up. This is big money, make no mistake about it. Always follow the money trail and it tells a story. Even the lady at “The Weather Channel” probably gets paid good money for a prime time show on climate change. No man-made global warming, no show, and no salary. Nothing wrong with making money at all, but when money becomes the motivation for a scientific conclusion, then we have a problem. For many, global warming is a big cash grab.

*The climate of this planet has been changing since God put the planet here. It will always change, and the warming in the last 10 years is not much difference than the warming we saw in the 1930s and other decades. And, lets not forget we are at the end of the ice age in which ice covered most of North America and Northern Europe.

The fact that the proponents of the global warming scam is enough to demonstrate that it is both bad science and bad logic. Seriously, if scientists don’t accept the idea that since the earth exists, God must have made it, why do they accept the idea that since the earth is growing warmer, Man must have done it?

It’s not as if they’ve actually done any of the experiments on the latter that they claim are necessary to prove the former, after all.

If one thinks that blaming global warming on God without citing any evidence for it is ridiculous, then one must reach the same conclusion for blaming it on Man.

Moreover, the evidence suggests that Man has nothing to do with it. The Earth was warmer back in the 14th century when 84 percent of Greenland wasn’t covered with ice. One notes that despite this warmer weather, the various coasts now wrongly claimed to be threatened were not submerged.
