Go Falcons!

Fryday, 11 Shivring 2017

Saw this just before the Stupor Bowl started. Can’t believe the rampant Republicant jingoism (PapaDoc and Bar? Really?) during the spectacle, and I just saw a murderer’s row of farging Republicant iceholes at the game sitting on those seats that cost as much today as many Social Security recipients receive for all of 2017. Wonderful work from Bill Maher on Friday’s New Rules:

Share and Enjoy! before Republicants *make* it illegal to criticize the gubmint…

Another Sign Of The Apocalypse

Tuesday, 10 Goodenuf 2015

Rob Ford (yes, that Rob Ford) has been appointed to the Hockey Hall of Fame’s Board of Directors*. By actual human beings. On purpose**.

While I am relatively sure that, even with creative interpretation that stretches the very concept of prophecy, there has been no mention of this in any of the various Great Big Books Of Religious Fairy Tales, I’m thinking that this predilection was so far out of the bounds of reality that even the framers of the various denominations couldn’t figure out a way to shoehorn something that far out there into their fables.

And, IMHO, as far as all this nonsense in concerned, it doesn’t matter whether Ford was put on the Board or he was hired to be the night watchman at the Hall of Fame, or, for that matter, any position that involves the NHL providing any sort of compensation whatsoever to Mr. Ford. It was an immediate source of ridicule and poor judgement of the parties involved for the talking heads dog and pony show experts on television

* – or he’s been electorated to the Hockey Hall of Fame Board of Directors. Either way, actual humans were involved and had to sign off on this decision…

** – as far as I know. I mean, this appointment wasn’t made or announced on the First of April, or anything like that…

Batshiat Bachmann Won’t Be Back…

…and she won’t have to run away from reporters when she’s making this announcementbecause she released her I’m quitting announcement on the internets. Why bother the reality based community with any weaselly (and possibly actionable) Republicant kimchee in a face to face setting when there’s that whole series of tubes to hide behind? The more things change…

Also too tonight marks the last NHL playoff game in May, where yet another Original Six team hits the golf course is eliminated from the playoffs. It took until June to get rid of more than half the original franchises in the league this year. As for the World Hockey championships, well, the less said the better…
