Here's a plan for snow storms: if you get welfare, you have to report to the nearest sanitation department and grab a shovel. If you don't show up, you don't get your check that week.

The Giants play at Green Bay this week in a virtual playoff game. The last time they played at Green Bay was the 2007 NFC Championship game, which is remembered for:
1) the coldest game played in NFL history;
2) Tom Coughlin's face turning various shades of red and purple in the below zero frozen tundra; and
3) Plaxico Burress dominating the Pack with 11 catches for 154 yards.
Plax won't be there Sunday because he is sitting in jail for shooting himself. Adam Carolla weighs in above in his own unique way on why Plax should have never been jailed.

It was 26 years ago today that Bernie Goetz fought back against his would be muggers. Looking back, it was a turning point in New York City history. Crime had reached record levels: the muggings, shootings, drugging, raping and robbing & killing had devastated the public. When Bernie turned the tables on the choir boys looking to rob him, it stuck a chord with millions of New Yorkers. We had had enough. The quality of life had diminished greatly because of crime, and the inept response the city had in stopping it.
Bernie Goetz fought back. And in doing so, he showed that it was possible to take a hard line against violent criminals. Our tolerance for politicians who coddled criminals wore thin after Bernie. Eventually, we were able to put Rudy in office, and he cracked down against crime both big and small.
But it all started with a mild mannered man on the subway 26 years ago today.
Thank you Bernie Goetz, a true New York hero.

And in a related story, a 10-year-old boy in California just broke Hank Aaron's home run record.
Stop with this nonsense that the UCONN girl's team is comparable to UCLA or any other men's team.
It is different because they are different.
Biology matters. That's why we have separate bathrooms, and that's why we give up a seat on a train to a pregnant woman.
The mindless liberal argument: both UCLA and UCONN play college basketball so therefore UCONN girls winning 89 games in a row trumps UCLA men winning 88 in a row.
Really? There is no difference? If there is no difference, how come UCONN just happened to schedule every game during the winning streak against other girl's teams? That must have been just a random coincidence, right?
I will believe that the UCONN girls broke the UCLA record when you show me a girl who can block Kareem-Abdul-Jabbar's sky hook.
UCONN lacks balls-literally.
UCONN= U Clearly Own No Nuts
What is the UCLA message to UCONN? U Clearly Lack A (SET OF BALLS).
And therein lies all the difference.

Hey, Big Mama Obama, the problem is not what's on the menu in the school cafeteria, the problem is the kids can't read the menu.
But Big Mama Obama knows best. She knows what we should eat, when and where. She is a world renown expert on nutrition, and apparently gained that expertise by being married to the divider in chief.
Big Mama says we can't leave it up to parents to tell kids what to eat, instead, we should leave it up to her.
Obviously, the proper role of the federal government when to comes to food is to make sure it is safe.
The government should make sure there is no razor blades in our salt. After that, its up to us whether to use salt or not.
Think about the insanity: of all the problems with our schools, we are going to spend billions to install salad bars.
Big Mama Obama is the cafeteria lady from hell: she puts the food on your plate whether you want it or not.
She probably sees the Belushi cafeteria scene in "Animal House" as a nutrition hate crime.

"When they expire in two years, I will fight to end them," Obama said. "Just as I suspect the Republican Party may fight to end the middle-class tax cuts that I've championed and that they've opposed."
There is not one Republican ANYWHERE that is on the record as wanting an increase in income taxes for the middle class. Not one. And everyone knows it. But no one calls him out on it.
Lower taxes is a core principal of the Republican party, much like racial preferences is for the Democrats.
Imagine if a Republican President said: "I will fight for affirmative action for minorities, which the Democratic Party has actively opposed."
The press would say, what the fu*k are you talking about, the Dems are ALWAYS in favor of affirmative action."
The same thing applies to taxes.
But the press are slient mice on this one.

1) Bush lowered the rates 10 years ago. That was horrible
2) The Clinton tax rates were higher across the board. That was awesome.
3) They want to go back to the Clinton tax rates-Those were the days!- but....
4) Only for people making over $250,000. For everyone else the Bush tax rates....
5) Are awesome.
It turns out liberals LOVE the Bush tax rates when it comes to themselves. No one you or I know making less than a $250,000 has said, "I want to pay more federal income taxes. I want the Clinton tax rates."
You will sooner see the Jets sack a quarterback than see that happen.
Which begs the question: If liberals think that the welfare state is underfunded and that higher taxes are the way to go, why are they excluding everyone from under $250k from paying more taxes?
Isn't it so nice of them, to have OTHER PEOPLE fund there welfare state?
It's so important to fund, but not so important that they pay into it.
10% of the country pays 70% of the taxes.
50% of the country pays nothing.
But they love their Bush tax cuts,,,, when it comes to themselves.

December 8- John Lennon Murdered Day
Yesterday, no media attention on Pearl Harbor Day. Today, it's teddy bears and candles non stop for John Lennon.
Talk about a nation not honoring its own history. But we know every John Lennon song by heart, right? The misplaced emphasis is a disgrace.
Years ago Bill Buckley analyzed the lyrics of Lennon's "Imagine" and concluded it was the Socialist/Communist version of utopia.
Think about it:
Please. That's a commie paradise alright.
For a guy who imagined no possessions, he sure collected a lot of them.
Those songs weren't written by Lennon & McCartney; more like Lennin & McCartney

Right now, the estate tax is zero. It is scheduled to go up to 55% on January 1, but under the deal Obama just agreed to, it will be 35% for all estates larger than $5 million.
You can't tell me people who are terminally ill and their families are not forced to at least think about the harsh tax consequences that will occur if a person dies on December 31, 2010 as opposed to January 1, 2011.
The fact that Obama & the Congress have let this play out for too long, and that forces people like Elizabeth Edwards (and countless others) to think about the consequences of the government taking none of their cash if they die one day and 55% of their cash if they die just one day later.
No one should have to be put in that situation.
But many Americans are facing that horrible decision-thanks to these grave- robbing liberals.

1) Jeter the tax cheater calls his ex-manager "Mr. Torre", and
2) Duke and Coach K run a pure program.
Leave the tax cheater aside for now, but for everyone who wants to know the truth about Duke, and how they funnel jobs and money to the families of their players, the article below is a must read.
For everyone condemning Cam Newton and his dad for trying to get paid, why don't you focus your outrage on Duke?
Mimi Du Jour: Is this some kind of bust?
Lt. Frank Drebin (Nielsen): Yes, ma'am, it's very impressive, but we need to ask you a few questions.
Dr. Rumack (Nielsen): You'd better tell the captain we've got to land as soon as we can. This woman has to be gotten to a hospital.
Elaine: A hospital? What is it?
Dr. Rumack: It's a big building with patients, but that's not important right now.
Doorman: Your coat, sir?
Lt. Frank Drebin (Nielsen): Yes, it is. And I have a receipt to prove it.
Lt. Frank Drebin (Nielsen): Wilma, I promise you; whatever scum did this, not one man on this force will rest one minute until he's behind bars. Now, let's grab a bite to eat.

The Bono Lessons:
I usually get my inspiration while jogging and listening to music. Today it was while listening to U2's "40" and thinking about the sad state of affairs in Ireland. I wonder if Bono woke up this morning, turned on the TV, saw the thousands of his fellow countrymen marching in the streets and thought, "Jeez, maybe I should have devoted all of my charitable efforts to those suffering in my homeland rather than spending millions on people in a far away land?" I'm sure Bono, like most Irish people, has a good heart and, while things were going great in Ireland, he thought he was doing a noble thing. He could comfort himself with that thought. Or he can realize the truth. His country, like many other countries, including the USA, lost track of taking care of their own instead of taking care of others. I mean, of all the people in the world, haven't the Irish suffered enough? Now they are going to be debt ridden to Europe for generations and their poor people are marching in the streets. Maybe Bono should have spent his time helping his own country and maybe he should do that now. If you're reading this and think this is off base, well, wait until the debt crisis happens here. The riots of the 60s might look tame compared to what could happen. If that happens (and we are all praying it won't), will we look back and feel good about the trillions of dollars we poured into far away lands only to be humiliated and insulted in return. Take South Korea, where they are attacked and yet they can't even defend themselves after decades of military support and worse, they insult our President at the G20 summit. Or take Europe where we saved them from fascism and now they look at us in scorn? How about Iraq and the broader Middle East where we got rid of Sadam and now we are enemy number 1? Or Indonesia where our people gave billions of their own money outside of taxpayer dollars and we sent in our Navy yet the Indonesians hate us and blame Obama for not "doing more" to mend so-called Muslim-American relations? The list is endless (Africa, Haiti, etc.).
What have we gotten for all of our kindness and money spent? Not even a "thank you card". Nothing. Think about if we had instead spent all that money and effort in the USA on our people. Don't we deserve it?

The White House says that the president will have no problem communicating with the stitches because no damage was done to the Teleprompter.
Did you know that when Obama plays basketball, if one team gets a big lead, he signs an executive order to redistribute some points to the other team?
Thank God for small blessings. If this injury occurred next year when Obama Health Care will be in full effect, they would have had to fly him up to Canada to get treatment.

Let's welcome Da Mayor to the vast right-wing conspiracy.
A distraction of the road to a better DC welfare system
America has much for which to be thankful. The unequaled freedom enjoyed by our citizens has provided a harvest of plenty to this nation throughout its history. In keeping with America’s heritage, one day each year is set aside for giving thanks to God for all of His blessings. … In this spirit, Thanksgiving has become a day when Americans extend a helping hand to the less fortunate. Long before there was a government welfare program, this spirit of voluntary giving was ingrained in the American character. Americans have always understand that, truly, one must give in order to receive. This should be a day of giving as well as a day of thanks.

In this era of pussification, with the NFL being so preoccupied with blows to the head, the time is right to give a Stoop Shout Out to the Hall of Famer who pattened the headslap-the Minister of Defense, Deacon Jones. In fact, you cannot by law use the term "headslap" without first saying the words "Deacon Jones."
This clip is hilarious. Deacon tries to be politically correct in explaining that the headslap could be used against anyone-but somehow I think the National Organization of Women would want him sacked for this.

Mike Francesa does the same shit all the time, as Phil Mushnick has consistently pointed out. Francesa's latest example: when Johnny Bench was coming on his show, he kept referring to him as "John Bench ".
John Bench? That's like saying "I'm going to appear on the John Carson Show".
Again, the calculated reason behind it: I am an insider and I get to call him something different to reflect that insider status.
The worst example of this comes from all-time dickhead Reggie Jackson.
Every October, he makes the media rounds. And he ALWAYS wants to talk about his relationship with Alex Rodriguez.
Does he call him "Alex"? Nah.
Does he call him "A-Rod"? Of course not. That is a name used by the common people.
No, Mr. Dick-Ober refers to him as "Al".
He calls him Al Rodriguez.
Tell me something. If someone said to you, "Did you see Al Rodriguez last night?", would you think they were referring to the baseball player?
Of course not.
Only Michael Francesa and Christopher Collinsworth would know what Reginald was talking about.

Please don't forget to send a Christmas card to the ACLU.
Let me explain. These petty little people see a Christmas tree in the public square as the biggest threat to America. They spend their spare time counting the sheep in the public square nativity scene to determine that there is enough sheep to offset the baby Jesus and thus meet their crazed definition of a "secular purpose."
But what can you say about a group that thinks that sheep in a nativity scene violates the constitution, but sex between a man and a sheep is protected by the 4th amendment's right to privacy?
So Christmas, and the public celebration of Christmas drives these people crazier than Charlie Sheen with a pocket full of crack.
So send them a Christmas card. You see, when the ACLU gets mail, they hope it's a donation. When they open it up and see that it is a Christmas card, the level of disappointment in the ACLU office must be like the time that these so-called privacy advocates tracked down Robert Bork's movie rentals and it included such salacious titles as "Mr. Smith Goes to Washington & Miracle on 34th Street".
And the more time they spend opening up Christmas cards, the less time they have to file lawsuits to get rid of nativity scenes.
And the more Christmas cards the ACLU receives, the more disappointment we can bring to these Scrooges.
So do your part and wish the ACLU a very Merry Christmas.

There goes Good -Time Charlie at his Dominican villa. He spends time there when he is not at his four rent- controlled apartments in Harlem. Charlie rented out the villa and never declared the income on his tax returns. Charlie says he simply forgot to declare it. Try using that as an excuse.
Charlie remembered that he owned the place. He remembered to use it to escape New York winters. He remembered to rent it out when he wasn't using it. He remembered to collect the rent and put it in his pocket. But declaring the income? It just slipped his mind.
They gave a party for Good-Time Charlie in August. He turned 80. The fact that he was a crook was beyond dispute. But they all showed up anyway to celebrate the life of Good Time Charlie: Bloomberg, Cuomo, Schumer and a host of others.
They see him as a man to be honored.
And they hold all the political power in this state.
We are doomed.

After the recent national wipeout of the Democrats from the recent elections and the new era of government, it could be easy to gloat and continue to attack the President's policies. But I thought I'd take a moments following the great election of 2010 to instead adopt a little hope for the time being. I will begin by praising the President when he did something two years ago when he was then President-elect that I thought paid tribute to and honored one of my favorite, but little-known and often ignored national traditions. Following the election of 2008, when the financial crisis was at its peak and President Bush took his last trip to Europe, President-elect Obama said clearly that he would honor the tradition of not criticizing the President when he was abroad. And during the time that President Bush was in Europe, Mr. Obama followed that tradition. Perhaps it was the first time that Mr. Obama ever thought about that tradition or perhaps he was employing it because he saw the future and wanted the benefit of that tradition, I don't know. What I do know is that, at the time, I liked it. I have always followed it and thought it was one of the great traditions in America: Don't criticize your President while he is abroad because he is my President represents you and me and if any country has a problem with the President at that time, they have a problem with me. Party affiliation dies when the President is abroad. (I actually also follow the inverse tradition as well--when I am abroad, I defend my Nation from those who disagree regardless of the issue).
So when I recently read that, while he was visiting Indonesia and the rest of Asia, the President has been loudly criticized by many foreigners for purportedly not doing enough to fulfill President Obama's promises to repair Islamic-US relations or, for instance, that the President's economic policies are upsetting China and other non-democracies, I say to those criticizing the President: Baba Booey! First, of course, if those of you reading this in other countries don't know what Baba Booey means or who Baba Booey is, you opinions are irrelevant. Seriously, though, as to the President's alleged failure to repair Islamic-US relations, I say on behalf of America and my President to those in the Islamic world who believe in this criticism that it's your turn to step up. Let's begin with a huge "thank you, Mr. President" for our country's heroic and unprecedented assistance in responding to the 2004 tsunami disaster. Meanwhile, let's see some good ol' fashion steps toward a rejection of extremism and adoption of democracy. Let's see some marches in the streets in Jakarta and Beijing demanding freedom and equality for all, including women. Let's see a protest march and a universal rejection for those who criticize the dude in Indonesia who claims he felt "forced" to shake the First Lady's hand. I mean, are you serious? Is that issue even worth a discussion? As for other criticisms about economic policy, China has more balls than a Christmas tree to attack the President for his response to help his country. To you in Commie land, I say once again Baba Booey.
In short, here's to the President's prompt and safe return to America. At that time, we can get back to the partisan games if we must, but for now--while our President is abroad, let's stick together as one Nation, under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.

In the weirdest news item of the day, the New York Post reveals that when George W. Bush was a teenager, his mother, Barbara, showed him her miscarried fetus in a jar. "There's no question that affected me, a philosophy that we should respect life," he tells Matt Lauer in an interview.
His mother showed him her miscarried fetus in a jar? No wonder why the guy drank himself into Ted Kennedy-like oblivion.
What is nuttier: that she did it, or that he writes about it?

I tried watching the President on 60 Minutes last night, but after a few minutes my attention began to wander. And then it hit me: we have tuned this man out. Totally. He is like the NBA coach in his fourth job and during timeouts you watch him talk to his team and no one is listening. No one even gives him any eye contact. They have heard the same tired speech more times than Ed McMahon said "Here's Johnny!" So they just zone out until the timeout is over, and then wander back onto the court.
In short, Obama is Doug Collins, and America is Deshawn Stevenson.

Obama tells his inner circle that he needs a photo- op to show that he has created jobs.
The next thing you know, he is on his way to India-do you know how many call centers, IT , and financial services jobs have migrated from the U.S. to India?
No wonder why they are throwing out the red carpet for the guy.
They must love him there.
He probably is having the Attorney General, -the guy who looks like Oprah's boyfriend-research the legality of having Dell Service Center people working in India obtain the right to vote in U.S. elections.

How bout we teach them to be able to count to 105 instead of a pitch count to that number?
Why are we babying these kids? Let them throw baseballs, snowballs and rocks to their hearts content.
Before you know it, they will pass a law limiting baseball video games to 105 pitches.
Guaranteed five years from now, you are going to turn on the news and some 20 year old will be sitting in some lawyer's office saying that their high school manager let him throw more than a 105 pitches and as a result he blew out his arm. And oh yeah, he would be in the majors if not for that dreaded breach of the pitch count-and he missed out on $50 million in lost earnings.
So we are teaching kids to be pussies, and we will pay taxpayer cash to settle frivolous lawsuits from this pussy rule.

The quintessential power forward of my youth, Maurice Lucas, passed away yesterday from bladder cancer. He was 58.
He was the heart and soul of the '77 champion Trail Blazers and also a central figure on the greatest sports book ever written, "The Breaks of the Game" by David Halberstam. If you haven't read it, you should be sentended to watching the World Cup for the rest of your life.
Anyway, the best tribute to Luke was made by his teammate Bill Walton, who named his son after Lucas. Knowing how much the concept of team meant to Walton, with UCLA, with the Celtics, etc. how awesome is it that he named his son Luke? Do you think Kobe has a son named Shaq? Please.
After the Lakers won the 2009 championship, Walton wrote his son a letter saying how proud he is of him for being a member of a championship team. But Walton being Walton, he could not help but compare Luke's Lakers to his own Blazers, and he reminds his son of his namesake.
Check it out:
Luke, you mentioned the historical reference to your team's abilities. When you get to be my age, trash talking is about all that's left. I fully admit, Luke, that your team is really, really good. Kobe is supreme. Pau, Lamar and Andrew are all top of the line. And Phil Jackson is brilliant.
Right next to your smile on my spirit and soul are the immortal words of Jack Ramsay, who recently said on the 30th anniversary of the 1977 World Champion Blazers in putting that team's abilities in historical context:
"I like our team. We'll take our chances. Anywhere. Anytime. Against anybody."
Blazers in four, Luke. Never forget why you are named after Maurice Lucas.

We can say the same thing about Lady Kaga, Supreme Court Justice Elena Kagan. We knew that she was an extreme left-wing radical. During her confirmation hearing, I believed her claim of being a moderate as much as I believed Liberace when he said he was not married because he could not find the right woman to settle down with.
Anyway, Kaga just recorded her first vote on the Court. And she is who we thought she was.
What do you think of this legal reasoning: a convicted murderer on death row should not be executed because the drug the state wants to inject him with might not be safe?
That's Kaga for you.
A little background on the death row killer: he was sentenced to death for killing a man after he escaped from prison. Oh yeah, he was in prison in the first place because he was convicted of second degree murder.
Let my pal Andrew take it from here:
Today we get our first opportunity to look at how our wonderful new Supreme Court Justice Elena Kagan is performing by evaluating her first vote as a Supreme Court Justice, which was in support of the issuance of a stay of the execution of murderer Jeffrey Landrigan. A bit about Landrigan: According to reports, Landrigan was first convicted of the first degree murder by stabbing of his best friend in 1982. While in prison for that murder, Landrigan murdered again by stabbing another inmate 14 times. Then he escaped from prison and murdered for the third time in 1989. During the sentencing hearing for the third murder (and who knows if there are more murders attributable to Landrigan), it was reported that Landrigan made a brief statement saying, "I think if you want to give me the death penalty, just bring it on. I'm ready for it." That does not sound to remourseful for all of the lives he shattered during his murder spree, does it? Twenty-plus prison years later (and untold amounts of taxpayer money wasted on him through police, incarceration, publicly funded defense lawyers), the execution was finally arranged and it is with this background that we now Kagan's vote for a stay.
While a vote for a stay of an execution issued by an Upper West Side-raised liberal judge would not be surprising in of itself, it is the reasoning behind her decision that is most shocking. Her vote in favor of the stay was because she had questions about the "safety" of the drug, sodium thiopental, which was set to be used to execute the convicted murderer. Indeed, the lawyers on behalf of Landrigan apparently were not arguing that there was no evidence to support a conviction, or that there was DNA or something which cleared the serial murderer. In fact, it appears that there is no dispute that Landrigan killed at least three times in cold blood. The lawyers for Landrigan, however, persuaded Kagan to the logic that a stay should issue because the drug was "not safe for its intended use." If you're scratching your head at the idea that anyone, much less a Supreme Court Justice, would agree with the logic that a drug meant to kill could be "unsafe" to the person you are trying to kill, then you realize the craziness of liberal logic. In short, they will think of anything to avoid imposing the death penalty.
Kagan's vote was the minority view and the drug apparently was safe for its intended use: Mr Landrigan reportedly died peacefully by lethal injection.

Latoya Craig, 27, an administrative assistant who lives in Moore Houses, in the South Bronx, was recently told that the large hole in her bathroom ceiling would not be repaired until May. In the meantime, mold has started to bloom, causing her to worry about the health of her 6-year-old son.
When you think of the harmful affects that liberal policies inflict upon American citizens, public housing is a good place to examine.
The culture of dependency which occurs when the government supplies your housing is shameful. That we allow this to happen, and don't take a wrecking ball to these policies is a disgrace.
When government supplies the roof over your head, the end result is you think the government is responsible to supply all of your basic needs. And when that happens-you are doomed.
Think about the example above. The woman has a potential hazardous condition in her apartment. A condition that could hurt her 6-year old son. She is told it won't be fixed until 9 months from now.
Does she fix it herself? No. Does she hire someone to fix it? No. Does she move out to another place? Of course not. She does not see it as her responsibility to do so.
And why should she? We have conditioned her to think that she is not responsible for her own housing-so why should she think it's her responsibility to repair that housing?
Dependency crushes the human spirit.
And that is what they are selling-dependency

This idea is the surest sign yet that the pussification of America is in full force. It's a straight line from play dates, to having your kid play soccer, to the NFL is too violent.
Is the NFL violent? Of course. The NFL is built on violence. It's why we watch it. The men who make their living playing football are the bravest men we have that do not wear a military uniform. (That makes Pat Tillman doubly great, by the way.)
Compared to the Deacon Jones head slap days, the NFL is already watered down. Why fuck with it? I love it when a guy gets his bell rung. And so do you by the way.
We should have seen this coming with the endless pink ribbons in the NFL.
Before you know it, they are going to make blitzing the quarterback a hate crime.
As my man Andrew mentioned, how hypocritical is it than Rodney Harrison is the spokesman for this movement?
Harrison was the dirtiest player of his time. He was known primarily for two things: steroids and cheap shots. He has scrambled more eggs than the busiest diner in Astoria. (By the way, if you watch the most famous catch of all time, the David Tyree helmet catch, you will find the human growth hormone king Rodney Harrison draped all over Tyree.)
And now he got religion?
Making Harrison the poster boy for eliminating blows to the head is like letting Hitler be the ribbon cutter at the opening of a Holocaust museum.

Joe Retardi really outdid himself the other night.
Let's break it down:
Walking the go ahead run to pitch to Bengie Molina? And letting Burnett pitch to him?
No monkey would have done such a thing.
First, Burnett is the most reckless pitcher in baseball. He is a disaster waiting to happen-which always happens. His ERA is higher than Ron Washington & Josh Hamilton on a crystal meth binge.
Letting Burnett pitch in a big spot is more reckless than saying to your sister," I think you should settle down and have kids with Antonio Cromartie."
And who does he let him pitch to? Bengie Molina! There are more Molina's in baseball than bedbugs in New York. And they are all clutch. One of them is even named "Out of Here" Molina.
These Molina's are the Robert Horry of major league baseball.
They are so clutch, the NBA is replacing the Jerry West Logo with one of the Molina's.
The decision to pitch to Molina was the worst decision since that day in Dallas when JFK said, "It's a beautiful day, let's take the convertible out for a spin."
It was such a dumb decision, and no monkey would have made it.
So I apologize to all monkeys that were offended by my comparison.

He sues the prison, claiming that by making him work, they are inflicting cruel and unusual punishment on him-and therefore are violating his 8th Amendment rights.
The courts rightfully dismiss his claim using inescapable logic: how is the prison be inflicting cruel and unusual punishment when they are providing him with medicine and he refuses to take it?
So his case was dismissed-but the wise one, Sotomayor issued a dissent.
She buys this claim. She thinks this guy has a case.
Think about that. And think about how she is going to twist our constitution into a left wing manifesto if she gets enough judges to join her.

Now I know. I saw it for myself.
In the 9th inning, the score was 2-0. The fans sitting behind the plate were packed in like a Tokyo rush hour train. And then a microsecond later, the score was 3-0, the camera panned behind the plate, and all you saw were empty seats.
It was like magic. How can so many people disappear in such a short time? I thought the amazing Kreskin was going to come out and saw a woman in half.
And then they showed all of the fans filing out so goddamn fast, Homeland Security should use the tape to show Americans how to evacuate a crowded place as quick as possible.
Here is the difference between Yankee fans and every other fan:
When Cliff Lee is pitching against your team, your mindset is: we have to figure out a way to beat this guy.
For Yankee fans, their mindset is: we have to figure out a way to get this guy. Right now. During the game. Have Cashman bring him a wheelbarrow full of money while he is warming up.
The Yankee lineup is like the stimulus: Both cost an insane amount of money with no results.
I love that movie they made about CC Sabathia's life-The Blind Side. Very Inspirational.
What happend to the Joba rules? Remember when they told us how great he was? How they had to limit his pitches, because his arm was such a precious commodity? The guy had more restrictions/regulations on his use than trying to build a skyscraper in the rain forest.
But the Joba rules have been replaced by new rules.
And although the rules are new, they still work the same way: to limit the number of pitches he throws in a major league game.
George is burning in hell and the devil is poking him with an interlocking NY- shaped pitchfolk.

Whatever he decides, we keep hearing through the ape vine that Retardi will leave to manage the Cubs next year.
Frank is the author of the financial reform bill, which is supposed to stop the next financial crisis from occurring. I know it was written in the Federalist Papers, but I do not know if the author was Hamilton, Madison or Jay. But it says it somewhere in there that if a Congressman cannot tell that his boyfriend is running a prostitution ring out of his apartment, he also will not be able to recognize when a Wall Street meltdown is about to happen.

They are hard -wired in a way that I will never understand. Who would ever think of having a meeting and inviting the guests based on their race? Democrats-that's who.
Think about that for a second. Come up with a reason to get a group of people together. And than say, "I'm only going to invite white people, or black people."
Don't you feel slimy for just thinking of such a thing?
And imagine going through with it.
They think and live in a way that is shameful.

1) Excellent idea. They are called food stamps. Not soda stamps. In fact, no beverages should be eligible for purchases with food stamps. If you want something to drink, the city already provides water for free. Take advantage of that wondrous program.
2) With that being said, I don't give a fuck if a person mainlines Mountain Dew into their neck. As long as they pay for it. But if you life is in such a state that the state has to provide you food; it has the right to restrict the types of food/drinks that you get for free courtesy of the U.S. tax payer.

He was a successful lawyer, a successful U.S. attorney, and he was elected governor in a blue state against a well-financed opponent.”

On Son of Mario ignoring his request to debate:
I guess what I find most offensive, other than the arrogance towards the public by your lack of a public answer, is the idea that this is somehow your decision as you have some sense of entitlement based on being the son of Mario Cuomo, a governor who left our state economy in a wreck. I know. I remember trying to make a living in UpstateNew York while your father was governor.
On Son of Mario's Lack of Balls:
Frankly, i dont think you have the cojones to face me and the other candidates in a open debate. I dont think you have the cojones to answer direct questions regarding the mistakes you made at HUD in pushing a sub-prime mortgage scheme that costtaxpayers $2.4 trillion dollars and cost most New Yorkers the value of their 401-Ks. I dont think you have the cojones to answer questions about why you embracedethically-challenged Charlie Rangel while pledging to clean up corruption.
On Son of Mario Being A Pussy:
So Andrew, for the first time in your life be a man. Don't hide behind daddy's coattails
even though he pulled strings to advance your career every step of your way. Come out and debate like a man.

In New York City we have the Mayor, the City Council, the Comptroller the Public Advocate. They make up city government and are elected by the public.
The City Council passes legislation, the Mayor signs it into law and executes it, and the Comptroller audits the books.
In a nutshell, that's how it works.
And that leaves the Public Advocate.
What are the powers delegated to the Public Advocate?
New York City Public Advocate Bill DeBlasio should be made to wear a Robert Parish jersey every time he walks into the office.
When I say the office has no power, I mean that literally.
It can't enforce any law or regulation.
It has no power to make budgets.
It cannot subpoena any city agency.
It cannot investigate city government.
It has no function; its very existence is a monument to liberal excess and how they really don't care about our tax dollars.
Now you may think that the Public Advocate has a function in city government because you always see the Public Advocate mentioned when something goes wrong in the city.
Last week, on election day, there was a big screw up with the electronic voting machines.
The Board of Elections fucked up big time.
So here comes the Public Advocate to the rescue.
Here is the New York Times on the actions Bill Deblasio took:
In a letter sent to board officials on Thursday, Mr. de Blasio identified several areas of concern, including specific data about the new electronic voting machines, the level of interagency coordination, the recruitment of poll workers, and voter privacy. He said he expected answers in two weeks so that remedies could be developed before the general election on Nov. 2.
Notice that Deblasio "expected" answers in two weeks. He did not demand them, or send a subpoena.
You or I could have written the same letter, and it would have the same legal effect.
The Board of Elections can choose to answer DeBlasio, or it could ignore the request.
He can't compel a response.
It is a ceremonial office with a liberal feel -good name: "Public Advocate".
And it should be abolished pronto.

But nowadays, it's infamous for something else: the number of anchor babies that are born there every year.
The numbers are stunning, and because Parkland is a public hospital, it's all paid for by the taxpayer.
As far as maternity wards go, Parkland might as well be Grand Central Station, it's so busy. Every year approximately 16,000 babies are delivered there. And out of that 16,000, 70% are delivered by mothers who are illegal immigrants.
That comes to 11,200 babies a year.
That number is mind-numbing.
We are talking about just one hospital, in just one year.
This hospital is like Woodstock for illegal aliens, they come from near and far so that they can have a baby in the U.S. that-- just by being born in America-- will be granted full citizenship.
Think about that. Think about the crazy incentives we provide to illegal aliens: yes, you are breaking the law by being here, but if you happen to hatch a kid while breaking the law, that kid is a citizen.
The Anchor baby policy has to be rolled back. The new law should be called the "Fruit of the Poisonous Illegal Alien Act". It would be a law only one sentence long: "All children born on U.S. soil to illegal aliens are also illegal aliens."
And when President Christie signs it into law, I want him to open an INS Detention Center right next to the Maternity Ward at Parkland Public Hospital.

The man is paid $20 million dollars a year. What he did is what little league coaches tell the worst kid on the team to do: "Go up there and bunt and if you can't even do that right, pretend that you got hit by the pitch."

When you examine Son of Mario's record, you will see that claiming he is a mainstream practical moderate is like looking at the back of Luis Castillo's baseball card and saying, "I think he's going to hit 40 home runs next year."
The man is a left-wing wrecking ball.
He got his start in the family business--politics-- by being his father's left hand man and chief advisor as Mario ran this state into the ground. Then his pappy sent him downstate to work for the most inept Mayor in the history of New York-David Dinkins. And if that wasn't enough, once his pappy agreed to not run against Bill Clinton, the president thanked Mario by naming Son of Mario the head of HUD, where his fingerprints are all over the sub prime mortgage mess since he implemented the federal government's policy to "encourage" banks to make loans to people who had no business receiving them. Moreover, as HUD Secretary, he remade Fannie & Freddie into the mess that has devastated this country.
So Son of Mario is that rare breed of liberal; a triple threat that has been able to implement ruinous liberal policies at the local, state and federal levels.
And we are going to reward this political hack with the governorship?
Take off the gloves, Carl Paladino.
And swing away.

He is 35, and just breaking through in the big leagues.
He's a born- again Christian with a wife and three kids who visits firehouses and VA Hospitals on his days off.
He rightfully called out the three amigos, Beltran-Castillo & Perez for not showing up at Walter Reed.
He gets it. And all Met fans love him.
From George Vecsey's column:
My last question was about his critical comments when Carlos Beltran, Oliver Perez and Luis Castillo skipped the visit to Walter Reed.
I don’t want to be too hard on those guys,” he said, “but at the same time I wanted to concentrate on what it meant for me, how grateful I was,” he said, meaning toward soldiers who had sacrificed their health.
On a team that has grievously lacked leadership Dickey’s voice was welcome.
“I’m a 35-year-old man with three kids, so I feel like what I say with a pure heart, I don’t have to apologize for it,” Dickey said.

"Football has such a lucrative scholarship that when parents talk to their kids about going to school, they talk about one thing, and that's playing football," Aaron said. "You had kids like Bo Jackson and Deion Sanders, who could've been excellent baseball players, but they had to go to school on football scholarships and play two sports. In the long run, it's not going to work, especially for baseball."
Hammerin' Hank swings and misses at the major cause of the decline.
Baseball is the ultimate father & son sport. Playing catch with your father is how millions of American kids have been introduced to baseball.
And it has been that way for generations.
But the sad fact of the matter is this: 74% of black children are born out of wedlock.
And that leads to a lot of fathers not playing catch with their sons.
Which results in not nearly as many black children develop a bond with baseball like when Aaron was growing up.
And if you don't develop an interest in baseball early, it is very hard to pick it up later.
Admittedly, out of all the problems that can be traced to the inexcusably high out of wedlock child birth rate, this is a minor one.
But they are related.
How sad and shameful it is, that so many kids don't know their fathers in America.

From where I sit on the Stoop they are going after the wrong USC Heisman Trophy winning running back.
Reggie Bush took money. OJ Simpson beheaded two people.
I don't know what the NCAA field manual says, but somehow, I think what OJ did is worse.
But here is a possible solution:
If they insist on taking Bush's Heisman, why don't they give it to Fred Goldman?
OJ was found liable for the wrongful death of Goldman's son, and the $38 million dollar judgment has not been satisfied.
Give Goldman the trophy, he can sell it to satisfy a small part of the judgment, and when OJ gets out, he can continue his quest to find the real killer.

That's NY Jet Antonio Cromartie reacting to Darrelle Revis signing his new contract.
The Jets already have the fake LT (Ladainian Tomlinson) and now that got football's MJ?
Revis ain't Jordan, and Cromartie is not Pippen-he is Shawn Kemp.
As for Tomlinson, they should sell his fake LT memorabilia down on Canal Street; it will fit right in with the fugazy watches and handbags.

Did you see this story on Jesse Jackson?
Detroit’s Channel 7 reports that the Reverend’s Caddy Escalade SUV was stolen and stripped of its wheels while he was in town last weekend with the UAW’s militant President Bob King leading the “Jobs, Justice, and Peace” march promoting government-funded green jobs.
Read that again: Jackson’s Caddy SUV was stripped while he was in town promoting green jobs.
While the good Reverend was preaching the virtues of "do as I say, not as I do" outside there was a little redistribution of the wealth going on.
Jesse takes the cake.
They may have stripped his car, but Jesse stripped himself of any decency long ago.
From the fake MLK died in my arms story, to the shakedown of corporations unless and until they donated to his organizations, to the kid he had with his mistress, to his hymietown remarks, the man is a moral and ethical disgrace.
But he is a man incapable of shame.
And we are a nation unwilling to shun him.
Here is an excerpt from Jesse's green speech:
We need an economy that creates employment that can't be shipped overseas., Home-grown American labor will be installing windmills and solar panels. A green economy is not an abstract concept.”
Maybe they used the money they got from stripping Jesse's gas guzzler to buy windmills for downtown Detroit.
And maybe the windmill company they start will grow prosperous.
And if it does, they can expect Jesse to come knocking for a donation.
And that my friends, will be the ultimate form of liberal recycling.

You would think you would sooner see a Yankee announcer criticize Jeter the tax cheater than see MSNBC (Mostly Showing Nothing But Commies) hack-host Chris Matthews chastise the Condescender in Chief. But even a water carrier like Matthews finds it hard to watch the monotonal grocery- list delivery that is the trademark of every Obama speech.
Just once, someone should slip some Wu Tang Clan lyrics into the Teleprompter and see how long he can go without catching on.
