So this morning, during my ride into work (you know, that thing that the 53% in America still do), I was listening to my usual WMAL morning show and everyone was talking about the horrible job the replacement refs did at last night's NFL game.
Now, I was not watching the game, instead taking in the awesome season premier of Castle, my ultimate guilty TV addiction, but the vehemence of the fan and even TV broadcaster and commentator reaction was striking.
"We don't want to talk about the officials, trust us," [ESPN's Mike] Tirico said. "But it's affecting the game. When we meet with teams and coordinators, frustration boils out into limited on-the-record statements. Off the record, what guys are saying -- it's a nightmare. It is impacting the game.
"It hasn't burned a team to cost them a playoff spot yet. But you should go back and watch the film. There are so many little things that players are getting away with that is absolutely impacting the game to the detriment of the product."
SO, WAKE THE HELL UP AMERICA!!..if everyone is so pissed off about amateurs ruining a stupid football game that has NO material impact on your life (except the pool money for your fantasy league), why aren't they pissed off about the amateurs in this Administration.
I mean let's start with the economy...it's still in the tank...unemployment is not getting any better:it's not likely to get ANY better under a second Obama Administration
Personal income tax rates will rise on January 1, 2013. The top income tax rate will rise from 35 to 39.6 percent (this is also the rate at which the majority of small business profits are taxed). The lowest rate will rise from 10 to 15 percent. All the rates in between will also rise. Itemized deductions and personal exemptions will again phase out, which has the same mathematical effect as higher marginal tax rates. The full list of marginal rate hikes is below:Yeahhh, forget all the bilious bullsh** from the Obamazombies about "taxing millionaires and billionaires" BELIEVE ME, those folks have enough lawyers and accountants to survive this... the rest of us...are gonna pay, pay, and pay. Read the facts at that link...if that doesn't scare the crap out of you it should....
-The 10% bracket rises to a new and expanded 15%
-The 25% bracket rises to 28%
-The 28% bracket rises to 31%
-The 33% bracket rises to 36%
-The 35% bracket rises to 39.6%
Ben Bernanke Warns Congress on ‘Taxmageddon’
Yup, read it and weep...any tiny traction the economy may get will be swamped by Taxmageddon......and Obama is OK with that...as long as he can "STICK IT" to millionaires and billionaires.
Then of course, there's the lies and blunders of Obama's foreign policy...which is likely to be just as dangerous to the US as his economic disasters.
Let's start with the lies:
Ten days after the attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, Libya, the White House’s official story about the incident appears to be falling apart.
“I think this is a case of an administration saying what they wished to be true before waiting for all the facts to come in.”That bolded part (which I did) pretty much sums up Obama's Presidency!
That is a pretty damning statement....and this is from the Daily Beast, hardly a paragon of Right-Wing Media....
But it gets better...while the Middle East is in flames (you do know, where the word Armageddon comes from don't you?)
But Obama continues his wishful, "aren't I wonderful eye candy to the world (and The View)" diplomacy.
When host and veteran journalist Barbara Walters kidded Michelle Obama about bringing the president as her "date," Obama quipped, "I've been told I'm just eye candy here."Veteran journalist my ass...there's a word for Barbara and her clucking hens..and it rhymes with doors.
Anyway, here's President Eye Candy's brilliance on display at the UN today. Here is some outstanding opinion from the WaPo (I know, I can't believe it myself):
The fact that he embodies the U.N. mantra on defamation of religion (“slander”) is even more regrettable. This is, as informed watchers of the U.N. know, an invidious movement to control and suppress speech, to prevent criticism of Islamic extremists and to use the West’s legal system against itself.Sadly, what this author doesn't understand is that Obama and his minions are ALL about moral equivalence between Christians, Muslims and Jews....after all you know how those crazy Catholics riot every time some lefty loon talks bad about the Pope.
Moreover, Obama is heading down a path to nowhere in which every statement of intolerance theoretically must be individually condemned by our government. But he doesn’t mean it. The hypocrisy is evident. He doesn’t and will never do this when Evangelical Christians are vilified, when art displays portray Jesus in offensive ways or when Broadway musicals jab at Mormons.
Moreover, the moral equivalence is downright appalling. Intolerant speech and insulting cartoons — that is free speech — is NOT the same as violence. And Holocaust denial by governments is not the same as boisterous, irreverent free speech exercised by free peoples.
So, there you have it...America is in a tailspin...we're ready to shoot a bunch of NFL replacement refs...but perfectly willing to overlook a few "bumps in the road" to our perfect Obama utopia....
