A season on the Brink…of Disaster!

Two seasons ago, the Indianapolis Colts were competing for the best record in the NFL, the coveted perfect record.  However, they

tanked it in the end.  This season, they are competing for the worst record in the NFL, and they’ve tanked the season in the middle of it.  What can be said by last nights performance?  Horrendous?  Atrocious?  Egregious?  despicable comes to mind.

The New Orleans Saints came into play, possibly hoping despite playing a decapitated team, the Colts would do the same.  But the Colts were only there in body, not spirit.

Of course, us Colts fans are not used to seeing the Colts lose getting their asses handed to them, and every team loses, but by fifty-five points?!  And how in the hell does a quarterback throw thirty-five passes and completes thirty-one of them?  It’s plain to see the Colts gave up last night (example: the benching of Curtis Painter), and possibly for the rest of the season.

But let’s get one thing straight; it is not all Curtis Painter’s fault.  It’s the offense’s fault.  It’s the defense’s fault.  And it’s the coaching staff’s fault.

I think I agree with Tony Dungy when he commented on the Atlanta Falcons coming to Indy in a couple of weeks when he said, “and it looks like they’ll win that one, too.”



Ron Paul tells it like it is!

You know, the political spectrum reaches the bottom of the gutter when wolves in sheep’s clothing in the likes of Mitt Romney and Rick Perry are able to steal the mainstream media limelight.  What do the Republicans have against Ron Paul, a candidate for freedom?  And how is it Herman Cain is able to galvanize his popularity by a single “tax plan”?  Turn that 9-9-9 right side up and you get 6-6-6.

I didn’t see that part of the debate where Romney and Perry got into a cat fight, though I read about it; that was enough.  If I was on the stage, I would have characterized this as “Atrocious”.

Poor Senator has to go through naked body scanner

As if it were not bad enough that members of Congress become monetarily fat off our tax dollars, Senator Orrin Hatch (R) Utah complained at the Senate Judiciary Committee about having to go through a naked body scanner.  Can someone get this man a tissue?

Senator: TSA Forced Me To Go Through Body Scanner orrin hatch

Republican Senator Orrin Hatch was forced to go through a TSA naked body scanner against his will, according to testimony heard at the Senate Judiciary Committee yesterday, as lawmakers complained to DHS head Janet Napolitano about the “baloney” Americans were forced to put up with at the hands of “arrogant” TSA screeners.

Despite the TSA’s official policy stating that travelers can select whether to pass through the radiation-firing body scanner or take an “enhanced pat down,” Utah Senator Hatch told Napolitano during the hearing that he wasn’t offered the choice.

“Sen. Orrin G. Hatch, Utah Republican, raised the issue, saying he’s been forced twice to go through the scanning machines when he would have preferred another method of screening,” reports the Washington Times.

“Maybe I look like a terrorist,” Hatch joked sardonically.

Hatch also said that he had witnessed TSA screeners “force” other travelers to go through the naked body scanner when they had expressed a wish to pass through the standard x-ray metal detector instead.

Vermont Democrat and committee Chairman Patrick J. Leahy complained that TSA screeners were punishing travelers who rejected the body scanner, stating, “Sometimes you get the impression they almost want to make you miss your plane because you have to go through the pat-down.”

Leahy went further, telling Napolitano that TSA workers had an “arrogant disregard for real Americans who have to put up with this baloney,” and were disconnected from reality, while also criticizing the fact that children have to pass through the radiation scanners.

The Democrat also slammed TSA agents for claiming that it was illegal to film them. “There is no such law,” Leahy stated.

Napolitano responded to the lawmakers’ grievances with a smug reference to the incident that provided the pretext for the introduction of the scanners in the first place. “I can say the answer in one word, and that’s Abdulmutallab,” she stated.

What Napolitano failed to mention was the fact that underwear bomber Umar Farouq Abdulmutallab was aided through airport security by a “well-dressed man” despite the fact that he had no passport and was a known terror suspect.

It later emerged that the State Department was ordered not to revoke Abdulmutallab’s visa by “federal counterterrorism officials” even though the accused bomber had known terrorist ties, in addition to the fact that his own father had warned U.S. intelligence officials of the threat posed by Abdulmutallab a month before the attempted attack on Delta Flight 253.

So what do we do now?

Well, I guess that it’s official – Sarah Palin is not running for the Office of the President of the United States.  For reasons that she doesn’t want to be “tied down”, and she needs to “say what she wants to say”.  Well, shucks!  That almost depresses me.  Alright, I’ll be honest – not really.

You see, Sarah Palin is the prototype politician that I absolutely cannot stand.  What else can you be where you serve your state for half a term, run for the Vice Presidency, and write novels; get a guest advertisement spot (that’s all she is, is advertisement), have your own reality television show, and hold an annoyed nation in the palm of your hand – “is she running or not?!” – what else can you be other than a celebrity?

Maybe Sarah realized that Americans got tired of her “don’t cha know” moments?  Or quite possibly Americans just came to the conclusion that she has an IQ comparable to that of Forrest Gump.

Any which way it goes, I’m glad she’s not running.
