ITEM: I'm also grouchy at those who claim to be my fellow conservative leaning people who know Obutthole was a mistake. Let's see: Benghazi? We didn't know what was happening at the time... IRS? Oh, it was just a small group of low level employees... in the ONE site in the entire country that does tax-exempt applications? But no harm was done... except when certain "low level" employees sent the mined info to a left wing journalist training ground called Pro Publica, who "accidently" published info knowing it was illegal to have it? Oh, wait, we didn't know about the IRS... AP gate? Oh, that was a DEPUTY attorney general what did that... Fast and Furious? Oh, that was a DEPUTY attorney general what did that.
ITEM: One last political note: Nixon used the IRS against his enemies, too- and he probably wasn't the only one. But he's a monster, the "Bogey Man" of presidents. Obutthole will skate, Democrats always do. And liberals- even those I consider intelligent, and friends, will not say a word about it. Just like they won't say anything about that soulless monster Kermit Gosnell, because if they had the courage to speak out against a man that cuts the spinal cords of newborns and calls it abortion, they'd have to step on the sacred cow of "a woman's right to choose". That's why we need to get those morning-after pills to six-year-olds. Liberals, if I have wronged you, use the comment section. As long as you don't end your post with, "here is my website: Vactionsinsiberia.com" I'll publish you.
ITEM: On to the next thing that pisses me off:
ITEM: Now to rant about sports. First, I know that it's common to get hurt in Baseball, but (sorry Skippy) here's Bryce Harper showing how much disengaging your brain can add to it:
One jammed shoulder, eleven stitches to the chin. And it wasn't even as a result of a graceful catch.
ITEM: Sports #2: Quick look at Aussie hockey. Saturday, Adelaide knocked off the Ice 6-4. Britt Ouellette had 2 first period goals to put Ad (Adelaide or Adrenaline, either one's too long) up 2-1. Melbourne's Joseph Hughes scored a shorthanded goal to put the Ice up 3-2, but the Ad's tied it after 2 at 4-4, and finished it off with a pair from Luc Blain and Josef Rezek.
Melbourne's Mustangs won, though. They rolled out 55 shots on 2 Canberra goalies to win 5-1. Jack McCoy (not the one played by Sam Waterston) got 2 goals in a 4-goal 3rd for the 'Stangs.
And the Sydney Bears got a pair of 2nd-period goals and held on to top Newcastle 2-1.
Sunday, the wormed turned in a second match between the Ad's and the Ice. Adelaide's New Zealander goalie Rick Parry gave up 4 goals on just 9 first period shots, and not surprisingly left trailing 4-0. His replacement is "veteran" Peter King, who has logged 15 games in a seven-year career as the Ads backup. Joseph Hughes scored twice, including another shorthanded score, and Jason Baclig and of course Matt Armstrong did likewise in the 9-3 rout.
Canberra found a new star in one Jordan Baird. Fresh from 3 seasons in the Southern League in the US of A, where he won a championship in 2012 with the Columbus, GA, Cottonmouths, he got a natural hat (three goals in a row), and it was just enough to give Canberra a 4-3 win and Newcastle their second loss of the weekend. And Matt Puntereri matched the 'Stangs' Pat O'Kane's two goals with two of his own- one into an empty net at the end- to give the Ice Dogs of Sydney a 4-2 win over Melbourne.
The Ice now have a one-point lead over the Ice Dogs, with Newcastle dropping 4 points back. Maybe Newcastle should start calling themselves the Ice Stars instead of the North Stars...
ITEM: Alex Ovechkin is complaining that the refs were against his Washington Capitals team as the NY Rangers knocked them out in the first round last night. And there is something in what he says- ever since the NFL used replacement refs, every major sport has had poor refereeing. Baseball is this week trying to live down three incidents of umpires screwing up badly in just two weeks, with at least five men in blue fined and one getting a two game suspension. But before we call to hang the refs high here, let's just look at Ovechkin's playoff record in Washington, shall we?
2006- Missed playoffs.
2007- Missed playoffs.
2008- Lost in first round.
2009- Lost in 2nd round.
2010- Lost in first round.
2011- Lost in 2nd round.
2012- Lost in 2nd round.
2013- Lost in 1st round.
So, you see, there is as much evidence against the officials here as there is that Ovechkin is a crybaby who is just a little more upset than usual that his golf game is back.
|Look on the bright side... we'd have kicked your butts next round anyway!|
