*** my usual disclaimer if anyone takes me seriously on my prediction for the score of the game you do so at your own risk. I am not responsible for any loses if you are crazy enough to follow what I say. ***
Pittsburgh 31 Arizona 20
I hate the Steelers. I've hated them ever since the so-called immaculent reception (which we know was nothing but an incomplete pass) but they in my opinion they are clearly the better team.

They have the same ideas as they have had for years that never work. I saw where Boehner was on tv saying that we need cuts for the corporations in the stimulus package that we had already that have led to where we are now and never work.
In other words it's the same trickle down economics that they have tried and ALWAYS fail on. Republicans need to get new ideas or get out of the way. Either way I don't care since they are nothing but thieves who led us to where we are!

I realize with the Republicans they have low I.Q.'s but I wonder if they realize if President Obama fails the whole country will go down but I guess they (Republicans) would rather that. And of course Rush being the open racist like he is you should expect no less.
One thing I hope President Obama has learned this week is with all the talk of bi-partisanship he would like Republicans will never let that happen. Once he realizes that and does the proper thing and well make the insignificant people they are right now.

First off we had 8 years of Republicans in charge and that got us where we are today so really why should PRESIDENT Obama listen to anything those losers who have ruined the economy have to say because they have no good ideas what so ever!
Second DEMOCRATS not Republicans are in the majority and what that means is that Republicans, unless they really don't care about the country and show they are nothing but obstructionists, should get along like they made Democrats who when they were in the minority do. I expect though the Republicans won't since they really don't care about the United States again to remind people who put us in this mess to begin with.
So really Republicans it's up to you get along or shut up. Choice is yours and remember you did the same thing to Democrats when you were in the majority so if you don't like it poor baby.

Also I realize people forget this but it was also Bush's job to keep us protected ON 9/11. He failed there too.
I realize when Presidents leave there is a revisionist history but I won't let that happen. Facts are facts.

Don't worry Republicans the war on terror isn't over it's actually going to be run responsibly.

Sen Specter of Pa. (R). is holding the nomination of Attorney General Eric Holder for a week for the reason he wants Holder to say he won't prosecute anyone for waterboarding.
I got a few questions:
Didn't we hear from Bush and the Republicans that waterboarding wasn't torture? (at least when he authorized it)?
And if it isn't why would Republicans care? (unless they knew it was torture all the time and lied which is of course what happened)
Isn't it the Attorney General's job to enforce the law no matter who broke it? Republicans didn't seem to have a problem prosecuting Bill Clinton for having a affair.
If Bush, Cheney, whoever didn't break the law why would they fear any prosecution and not welcome it after all if they did nothing wrong why be afraid? Oh yeah they are cowards aren't they.
Like I said Republicans are nothing but hypocrites and they prove it time and time again if no crimes were committed why be afraid?

Just remember a few things. You are going to hear a bunch of lies from the right-wing media about Obama so I want to make things perfectly clear:
A) The recession is on Bush and his policies. No one else
B) If there is ANY terror attack by Al Queda that is too on Bush for failing to do anything about them since 9/11.
On a side note I see where FORMER V.P. Dick Cheney will have to view the event in a wheelchair after hurting his back. You caused a lot of pain in this country you are getting a small taste back.
Good bye to thieves Bush and Cheney and don't let the door hit you in the ass on the way out!

I am happy to join with you today in what will go down in history as the greatest demonstration for freedom in the history of our nation.
Five score years ago, a great American, in whose symbolic shadow we stand today, signed the Emancipation Proclamation. This momentous decree came as a great beacon light of hope to millions of Negro slaves who had been seared in the flames of withering injustice. It came as a joyous daybreak to end the long night of their captivity.
But one hundred years later, the Negro still is not free. One hundred years later, the life of the Negro is still sadly crippled by the manacles of segregation and the chains of discrimination. One hundred years later, the Negro lives on a lonely island of poverty in the midst of a vast ocean of material prosperity. One hundred years later, the Negro is still languished in the corners of American society and finds himself an exile in his own land. And so we've come here today to dramatize a shameful condition.
In a sense we've come to our nation's capital to cash a check. When the architects of our republic wrote the magnificent words of the Constitution and the Declaration of Independence, they were signing a promissory note to which every American was to fall heir. This note was a promise that all men, yes, black men as well as white men, would be guaranteed the "unalienable Rights" of "Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness." It is obvious today that America has defaulted on this promissory note, insofar as her citizens of color are concerned. Instead of honoring this sacred obligation, America has given the Negro people a bad check, a check which has come back marked "insufficient funds."
But we refuse to believe that the bank of justice is bankrupt. We refuse to believe that there are insufficient funds in the great vaults of opportunity of this nation. And so, we've come to cash this check, a check that will give us upon demand the riches of freedom and the security of justice.
We have also come to this hallowed spot to remind America of the fierce urgency of Now. This is no time to engage in the luxury of cooling off or to take the tranquilizing drug of gradualism. Now is the time to make real the promises of democracy. Now is the time to rise from the dark and desolate valley of segregation to the sunlit path of racial justice. Now is the time to lift our nation from the quicksands of racial injustice to the solid rock of brotherhood. Now is the time to make justice a reality for all of God's children.
It would be fatal for the nation to overlook the urgency of the moment. This sweltering summer of the Negro's legitimate discontent will not pass until there is an invigorating autumn of freedom and equality. Nineteen sixty-three is not an end, but a beginning. And those who hope that the Negro needed to blow off steam and will now be content will have a rude awakening if the nation returns to business as usual. And there will be neither rest nor tranquility in America until the Negro is granted his citizenship rights. The whirlwinds of revolt will continue to shake the foundations of our nation until the bright day of justice emerges.
But there is something that I must say to my people, who stand on the warm threshold which leads into the palace of justice: In the process of gaining our rightful place, we must not be guilty of wrongful deeds. Let us not seek to satisfy our thirst for freedom by drinking from the cup of bitterness and hatred. We must forever conduct our struggle on the high plane of dignity and discipline. We must not allow our creative protest to degenerate into physical violence. Again and again, we must rise to the majestic heights of meeting physical force with soul force.
The marvelous new militancy which has engulfed the Negro community must not lead us to a distrust of all white people, for many of our white brothers, as evidenced by their presence here today, have come to realize that their destiny is tied up with our destiny. And they have come to realize that their freedom is inextricably bound to our freedom.
We cannot walk alone.
And as we walk, we must make the pledge that we shall always march ahead.
We cannot turn back.
There are those who are asking the devotees of civil rights, "When will you be satisfied?" We can never be satisfied as long as the Negro is the victim of the unspeakable horrors of police brutality. We can never be satisfied as long as our bodies, heavy with the fatigue of travel, cannot gain lodging in the motels of the highways and the hotels of the cities. We cannot be satisfied as long as the negro's basic mobility is from a smaller ghetto to a larger one. We can never be satisfied as long as our children are stripped of their self-hood and robbed of their dignity by signs stating: "For Whites Only." We cannot be satisfied as long as a Negro in Mississippi cannot vote and a Negro in New York believes he has nothing for which to vote. No, no, we are not satisfied, and we will not be satisfied until "justice rolls down like waters, and righteousness like a mighty stream."
I am not unmindful that some of you have come here out of great trials and tribulations. Some of you have come fresh from narrow jail cells. And some of you have come from areas where your quest -- quest for freedom left you battered by the storms of persecution and staggered by the winds of police brutality. You have been the veterans of creative suffering. Continue to work with the faith that unearned suffering is redemptive. Go back to Mississippi, go back to Alabama, go back to South Carolina, go back to Georgia, go back to Louisiana, go back to the slums and ghettos of our northern cities, knowing that somehow this situation can and will be changed.
Let us not wallow in the valley of despair, I say to you today, my friends.
And so even though we face the difficulties of today and tomorrow, I still have a dream. It is a dream deeply rooted in the American dream.
I have a dream that one day this nation will rise up and live out the true meaning of its creed: "We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal."
I have a dream that one day on the red hills of Georgia, the sons of former slaves and the sons of former slave owners will be able to sit down together at the table of brotherhood.
I have a dream that one day even the state of Mississippi, a state sweltering with the heat of injustice, sweltering with the heat of oppression, will be transformed into an oasis of freedom and justice.
I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character.
I have a dream today!
I have a dream that one day, down in Alabama, with its vicious racists, with its governor having his lips dripping with the words of "interposition" and "nullification" -- one day right there in Alabama little black boys and black girls will be able to join hands with little white boys and white girls as sisters and brothers.
I have a dream today!
I have a dream that one day every valley shall be exalted, and every hill and mountain shall be made low, the rough places will be made plain, and the crooked places will be made straight; "and the glory of the Lord shall be revealed and all flesh shall see it together."
This is our hope, and this is the faith that I go back to the South with.
With this faith, we will be able to hew out of the mountain of despair a stone of hope. With this faith, we will be able to transform the jangling discords of our nation into a beautiful symphony of brotherhood. With this faith, we will be able to work together, to pray together, to struggle together, to go to jail together, to stand up for freedom together, knowing that we will be free one day.
And this will be the day -- this will be the day when all of God's children will be able to sing with new meaning:
My country 'tis of thee, sweet land of liberty, of thee I sing.
Land where my fathers died, land of the Pilgrim's pride,
From every mountainside, let freedom ring!
And if America is to be a great nation, this must become true.
And so let freedom ring from the prodigious hilltops of New Hampshire.
Let freedom ring from the mighty mountains of New York.
Let freedom ring from the heightening Alleghenies of Pennsylvania.
Let freedom ring from the snow-capped Rockies of Colorado.
Let freedom ring from the curvaceous slopes of California.
But not only that:
Let freedom ring from Stone Mountain of Georgia.
Let freedom ring from Lookout Mountain of Tennessee.
Let freedom ring from every hill and molehill of Mississippi.
From every mountainside, let freedom ring.
And when this happens, when we allow freedom ring, when we let it ring from every village and every hamlet, from every state and every city, we will be able to speed up that day when all of God's children, black men and white men, Jews and Gentiles, Protestants and Catholics, will be able to join hands and sing in the words of the old Negro spiritual:
Free at last! Free at last!
Thank God Almighty, we are free at last!

A) Build the "Wilshire to the Sea" subway
B) Build a subway or monorail that connects from Long Beach Blue Line to the Van Nuys Metrolink Station. Wanna get people off the 405 that's the best move in my opinion
C) Build a subway or monorail along either Ventura Blvd or the Ventura Freeway that connects from Topanga Cyn to the Red Line station at Universal. Again same reason as above but for the 101
D) Build a busway on Topanga Cyn from Ventura to the Chatsworth Metrolink Station
E) Complete the 710 already. I'm sick of people complaining about it and yet when solutions are offered they complain about them. Since you can't please everyone you mine as well piss everyone off :).
If anyone has something they would like to add please feel free.

So now one of the groups responsible for the bullying of prop 8's real purpose is being found out. They are trying to force the bible on us. Problem is they have the resources to bully the public as they did on prop 8 and the people who really didn't research what prop 8 meant are the same people who they will target for this. I wouldn't be surprised if the get far.

Did anyone see the idiot's press conference yesterday? I'm telling you outside of the usual lies and how stupid he thinks the American people are he was clearly drunk or stoned or something. He was clearly slurring his speech he was clearly wasted. Again. Glad the nightmare is going to be over soon and hopefully Obama will store honor and respect to the White House contrary to the loser that currently occupies it

The link shows the soon to be former Vice President Darth Vader saying that he doesn't care that Bin Laden wasn't captured. How pathetic. But I guess he got what he wanted with the illegal war in Iraq so it doesn't matter to him.
To me it does matter. But forgive me for actually giving a damn about what happened on 9/11. We know who doesn't.

1) Utah. They are undefeated. They beat 6 teams this year that were in bowls. They might have even beat the Florida and Oklahoma teams that showed up on Thursday.
2) USC. Truly the best teams in the country. Everyone knows I'm not a USC fan but I always do respect them and the fact of the matter is they had a tougher schedule then the teams in the alleged Championship Game
3) Florida. Tim Teebow is a great player. They have a solid team. USC still beats them at this time.
4) Texas. They beat Oklahoma. They should have been there. Result still would have been the same
5) The Pac-10 Conference. They went 5-0 in bowl games. No other conference could claim that.

Remember it was Obama who did interviews with people from both parties. She didn't. She looked how she was and that was not prepared for the spotlight but like the typical Republican she blames everyone BUT herself! The blame game doesn't work anymore and once Republicans figure that out they might gain seats in the House and Senate. Until then go away!

Now for the bad and that's the Democratic Senate. They rejected Blogevich's appointment to the Senate yesterday and I'm confused why.
A) He is qualified to be Senator according to the U.S. Constitution
B) Blogevich IS the current Governor of Illinois and IS doing his job as much as a scumbag he is
C) It really makes Democrats look horrible by doing this. If they want to hold on to the majority and maybe pick up a seat or two in the future they are doing themselves no favors.
I'm wondering why Reed didn't battle Republicans on Iraq,torture,the bank bailout and so many others with as much intensity? It said too much about his character and it really disappoints me that he is not a leader and needs to step away.
And one more good thing. I want to say congrats to Al Franken for legally winning the Senate in Minnesota. He earned a victory with all votes counted. Of course that is not what Norman Coleman wants to hear cause he is going to of course sue to stop Franken from being certified.

A) The Bank Bailout. I mean think about it he got funds for banks with no questions asked. No regulation. Good idea with this crook
B) Iraq. We were lied to. We were told how Iraq had weapons of mass destruction and were going to use them against us or Israel. If Bush listened to the people on the ground as he claims he does he would have known Iraq DIDN'T have any weapons. According to every U.N. weapons inspector that was there.
C) Katrina . I say because Bush allowed the poor people to suffer. Bush's lack of concern was astounding and he didn't do a thing until it was too late.
D) 9/11. He was warned an attack was coming. He chose to do nothing. Look what happened
E) Patriot Act. It was funny how many people were so willing to have our civil rights taken away by this illegal legislation.
F) Torture. I will always ask this question and never seem to get a response. If waterboarding happened to our troops would we as a country consider it torture? Yes we would yet it's ok for Bush to do it. This is why we are so hated in the world right now.
G) The denial over the economy. How long did we hear the economy is ok from Bush? Maybe if he gave a damn about common people instead of being an elitist like he is.
H) Valerie Plame. The outing of a covert CIA agent is illegal no matter how big or small his or her role is. Bush said he would fire anyone associated with the leaking of her name. He pardoned the one person convicted when everyone with a brain knew he and Cheney were the ones who leaked it!
I) The phony war on terror. Bush not only failed to make a dent in Al Queda, he strengthened them. Bush has completely forgotten about the person responsible for 9/11 Bin Laden and every time something comes up that is damning toward him he uses a phony terror threat to distract the nation. It's a joke and an embarassment!
J) The record deficit. Does anyone remember when Bush stole the office in 2000? We had something called a surplus. No debt. Bill Clinton did that. Bush is leaving us with a deficit of over $400 billion dollars. I know Republicans like to blame Democrats but this started when Republicans controlled everything and anyone who says otherwise is in denial!
I'll come up with a few more I'm sure
Monday, January 05, 2009
We have Alabama Gov Don Siegelman who was clearly framed
We have Gov Rod Blagojevich of Illinois. Keep in mind Fitzgerald's case is very weak and he has asked for an extension
We now have Bill Richardson of New Mexico who is being investigated.
By the way does anyone remember the Larry Craig and David Vitter scandels?? I bet you forgot as the right-wing media conveniently swept those away.
This is a DIRECT result of what Rove did and he refused to testify for it. He should be in jail as well as Bush, Cheney as I've said many times I hope Obama has the courage to prosecute all of them. If this isn't pay to play I don't know what is.

I'm sorry but until the people of Palestine decide to show their purpose is not to destroy Israel they do not deserve a country.
You know how the right always claims how Bill Clinton had Vince Foster killed even though there is no reason why it's just something they do to attack Clinton since he was an actual good President compared to the idiot we have now. Well I have an actual story for you involving the right-wing and an actual assassination!
The link I provided is to a plane crash that involved GOP I.T. man Mike Connell. Why is this a Republican Assassination: He, contrary to Vince Foster, was about to testify on the 2004 election in Ohio which Bush stole yet again and Karl Rove DID threaten him. Connell was warned by friend not to fly and he was killed. And I'm sorry this is obvious
I'm wondering why the so-called liberal media isn't trouncing on this obvious story. Oh yeah the media isn't liberal.
