  • Oh, Those Magical Royals

    Author Administrator

    It's that time of year again. Yes, the time where words like "pitching" and "hitting" get replaced with phrases like "they've got that magic" and "fairy dust". Last night at as I was watching the Royals cash in on that "magic" and finish off their sweep of the Angels I saw a sign in the stands that read "We have always believed. Now everyone else does." Cute sign. Realistic? No. After all, it was just a month ago that Royals Manager Ned Yost ripped into the Royals fans for not showing up to games. In fact, the Royals ranked 25th in the league in attendance this year. So no, you haven't always believed, Royals fans, and I don't believe now either. Magic and fairies can be fun. This is baseball.

  • How Donald Sterling Will Beat The NBA

    Author Administrator

    First off, to be clear I am not a lawyer. I am an over the road truck driver. While this may make you want to be quick to dismiss my observations here, hear me out first. If at the end of the article you still want to dismiss me, feel free. If, however, this article leaves you thinking that I make some valid points, come back and read this first paragraph again. A truck driver, not a lawyer, came up with this. Donald Sterling will be represented by lawyers, not truckers. I'm willing to bet that they can do at least as good a job making a case for him as I am doing right here, and I would even go so far as to suggest that they might do better. Hard to imagine, I know, but it is possible.

  • NBA and Race Relations

    Author Administrator

    The verdict is in. Donald Sterling is banned from life from the NBA. He cannot run his team nor attend his (or any other NBA) games or any NBA meetings. Furthermore, new Commissioner Adam Silver has announced that the league owners will be meeting to vote on taking the Clippers away from Sterling. He also claims to have talked to a few of the owners and claims that he has the votes. Wait a second... I thought this guy was supposed to be a genius lawyer. Way to plead guilty to collusion before the deal is even done and open the door to the Sterling antitrust lawsuit that will allow him to keep his team. But I digress.

  • Donald Sterling is a racist, but...

    Author Steve Parry

    Yes, this is the topic of conversation for the day. Did you hear what Donald Sterling said to his girlfriend? He should lose his team. All over sports talk radio, and even into the mainstream sources, this is all I hear. What's my opinion on it? Sports talk show hosts are idiots. That's my opinion on the matter. I say this for two reasons. 1, these are guys whose very living depends on their ability to exercise free speech, yet they want a man to lose his livelihood for expressing an unpopular and undesirable opinion. Catch the irony here? But that aside, there is a much larger issue at hand. To be specific, I am speaking here to Evan Cohen, Steve Phillips, Dan Patrick, and Adam Schein. Would any of you hosts care to swim up from the bottom and deal with the real issue at hand here?

  • JFK Conspiracy Theories

    JFK Conspiracy Theories

    Author Administrator

    Two conspiracy theorists die and go to heaven. St. Peter tells them that Heaven is a place of all knowledge, so they can each ask him one question and he will reveal the answer to them. The first one says "Who killed John F. Kennedy?" St. Peter says "Lee Harvey Oswald." The other says "Who was he working with?" St. Peter says "He acted alone." The two of them look at each other and say "Wow! The coverup is bigger than we thought!" But seriously, what keeps this stuff going? Some would say the evidence. Other would say mental illness. I myself am unsure, and I have a hard time really focusing on this one as I didn't live through it. This article is pretty much a starting point for me and a note to self. Steve, debunk this one.

NOW Defends Palin?

Written by Administrator on .

National Organization of WomenIn a positively bizarre turn of events, the National Organization for Women has issued a statement in regards to Bill Maher's comments directed towards Sarah Palin. The controversy started when Bill Maher said the following on his show. “Did you hear this – Sarah Palin finally heard what happened in Japan and she’s demanding that we invade ‘Tsunami,’. I mean she said, ‘These ‘Tsunamians’ will not get away with this.’ Oh speaking of dumb twats,..." Apparently, some on the right demanded that N.O.W. come to the defense of Sarah Palin, but they waited a few days before issuing this response.

 

1. Listen, supposedly progressive men (ok, and women, too): Cut the crap! Stop degrading women with whom you disagree and/or don't like by using female body terms or other gender-associated slurs. OK? Can you do that, please? If you think someone's an idiot or a danger to the country, feel free to say so, but try to keep their sex out of it. Sexist insults have an impact on all women.

Seriously? I knew that N.O.W. was perfectly comfortable putting men in their place, but who are they to tell women what to do? I suppose all of the barefoot and pregnant broads across the country will stop with this activity immediately now that the National Organization for Women has put them in their place. You heard them, ladies. Quit fighting amongst yourselves and get back in the kitchen.

Using body terms? So I'm guessing that "twat" is now an acceptable terminology for the vagina, just not for the woman it belongs to? So it would be okay for one to tell a woman to "Get her twat in gear", but not to "Get moving, twat". Duly noted. Wow, these broads over at N.O.W. are getting easier to get along with all the time.

It is apparently acceptable, however, to use this term in association with women that one does agree with politically. So, for example, if I were a fan of Hillary Clinton, I could say "Boy, that twat Hillary really showed Libya who the boss is, didn't she?"

Keep their sex out of it? I have to say I agree with the National Organization of Women. What does her being a woman have to do with anything? Why does one feel the need to point out the gender of the person they are talking about? We should all listen to the National Organization of Women, and stop feeling the need to identify people by their gender... i guess?

All of this having been said, the non-gender specific people over at the National Organization for Women went on to say this.

2. We're on to you, right-wingers:
a. You're trying to take up our time getting us to defend your friend Sarah Palin. If you keep us busy defending her, we have less time to defend women's bodies from the onslaught of reproductive rights attacks and other threats to our freedom, safety, livelihood, etc. Sorry, but we can't defend Palin or even Hillary Clinton from every sexist insult hurled at them in the media. That task would be impossible, and it would consume us. You know this would not be a productive way to fight for women's equal rights, which is why you want us stuck in this morass.

What? I don't mean to nit pick here, but that statement was like 70 words. How long did it take you broads to come up with that one? And as generic as it is, you don't have time to copy and paste that every day? I guess these chicks over there really worked hard on this statement, and are particularly proud of it. If so, in the time it took you to put your noodles together and structure paragraph 2, you could have re-posted paragraph 1 for the next 500 offenses. I'm just saying.

Reproductive rights attacks? Here is how N.O.W. defines their stance on "reproductive rights".

NOW affirms that reproductive rights are issues of life and death for women, not mere matters of choice. NOW fully supports access to safe and legal abortion, to effective birth control and emergency contraception, to reproductive health services and education for all women.

Even if you don't intend to click that link, you should hover it and see that the destination at the now website is a folder called "abortion". Hey N.O.W., cut the crap, okay? Abortion is not reproduction, it is to stop accidental reproduction. While it is your right to lobby for abortion, and to help women obtain legal abortions, when you can't use the correct term for what you are doing, maybe you are in the wrong line of work?

Here we have a group that defines themselves as the national organization for people of a specific sex issuing a statement to tell others to keep a persons sex out of the discussion, and telling us that they are to busy fighting for a woman's right to reproduce, which they themselves define as stopping a current case of reproduction, to further defend women under attack in the future. And they wonder why some claim that they are in this only for liberal women?
