Hungry For Moore

leave a comment »

So Hollywood is engaging on some stupid “rolling hunger strike.” Typical stupid limousine liberal crap. However, I was curious to see if Mikey Moore was part of this protest. I headed over to his Web site (OK, OK, here’s the “real” one), and he had a link showing everyone who has signed up to be an Ethiopian for a day. Now while Mikey is pimping this Left-wing form of protest du jour he isn’t actually on the non-eating list.

I’ll leave the rest up to you.

MLB’s Real Fake Game

leave a comment »

Over the years Major League Baseball has done some things I liked (doubling the amount of postseason entrants) and some things I didn’t care for (inter-league play during the regular season). However, the dumbest thing has to be this “winning league gets home field advantage,” after all, because THIS (exhibition) GAME COUNTS. If we’re going to include this meaningless contest into how the league handles it’s postseason, then how about giving AL/NLCS home-field advantage to the team with the better spring training league? After all, we want our baseball players to be playing like they mean it in the Cactus League.

Sweeping The Home-Field Advantage Concept

leave a comment »

Phil Garner said in a recent interview that he understands firsthand how important having home-field advantage is in the World Series. Uh, Phil, your Astros got swept by the White Sox last year – would you rather have lost the fourth game in Chicago rather than Houston?

Sub-Minimum Wage For Sub-Humans

leave a comment »

Since I talked about minimum wage yesterday, I found this funny.

A federal appeals court says inmates working at prison jobs have no right to a minimum wage.

A convicted sex offender argued that his job in a Texas prison laundry qualified him for a federal minimum of $5.15 an hour because the Fair Labor Standards Act didn’t exempt prisoners.

But the New Orleans-based Fifth Circuit disagrees. The judges say, even if the inmate wasn’t specifically sentenced to hard labor, he’s a prisoner and not an employee.

Appeals judges affirmed a lower court’s decision that dismissed the lawsuit as frivolous. And they echoed another federal court’s conclusion that inmates “are not imprisoned for the purpose of enabling them to earn a living.”

A corrections spokeswoman says Texas inmates are expected to work if they’re capable, without pay.

It’s only a matter of time before some red diaper doper baby judge not only rules that inmates be paid not a minimum wage but rather that hippie “living wage.” Of course, they’d also still get free health care, meals, housing and anal sex.

Explosion Rocks India

leave a comment »

An apparent terrorist attack stuck India today and so far 130+ have been reported dead.

A series of at least seven explosions rocked the commuter rail network in Bombay (Mumbai) during Tuesday’s evening rush hour, killing at least 147 people and injuring 400, officials said.

Confusion erupted throughout Bombay’s crowded rail network following the explosions. Indian TV broadcast footage of bystanders carrying victims to ambulances and searching through the wreckage for survivors and bodies.

I have to wonder if there’s any coincidence that this attack took place on 7/11, which is national convenience store workers day? While I’m at it, what’s up with terrorists and 11s? You have 9/11. You have 7/11. You have Spain’s bombing, which took place on 3/11. You had last year’s bombing in England, which although didn’t take place on the 11th day of the month, has a close enough sounding date (7/7). Is planning massive acts of terror on an “-even” day one of the few things in this world that actually pleases Allah?

Taking A Stab At The Assailant

leave a comment »

Linebacker Roderick Green of the Baltimore Ravens just got stabbed at a bowling alley. I’m not going to goof on this guy because from what I heard on the radio, he did everything right in this situation by trying to avoid this confrontation. However, I have to wonder if a certain Ravens linebacker is starting to get worried about his spot being taken and is out to shank the competition?

O’Connor And Cancer

leave a comment »

A while back I talked about Shittsburgh’s newest mayor Bob O’Connor. Even though the guy’s a Democrat, I like him (for now). After all, when it comes to urban areas, you take what you can get, and O’Connor seems like a genuinely good guy. Well, he was just diagnosed with cancer, but is expected to pull through.

Pittsburgh Mayor Bob O’Connor remains at UPMC Shadyside where he began his chemotherapy Tuesday.

O’Connor is reported to be in good condition according to the mayor’s medical team from the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center.

His oncologists at UPMC’s Hillman Cancer Center report that his chemotherapy treatment was well tolerated.

Get well, Bob, because God knows the city needs you, especially since Shittsburgh’s Shity Council just “signed on” to the Kyoto Treaty.

Its three rivers are lined with steel mills.

Even the football team is called the Steelers.

But local leaders are working hard to strip away the steel image and establish a reputation as an environmentally conscious metropolis.

Pittsburgh now ranks second in the nation when it comes to green-certified space, and the City Council took big steps on Wednesday toward making sure that new image sticks.

By joining the Kyoto Treaty, Pittsburgh and Allegheny County pledge to reduce greenhouse emissions by 7 percent.

Like I’ve said before, thank Christ I don’t live in this city or the county encompassing this shithole.
