And I have almost reached my required number of annual posts which is 176. Did you notice how I filled in 12 posts pretty cheesily by using that old newspaper trick of re-running my best columns [posts]of the year. Yeah, I thought you would.
BTW, probation sucks too- it's the only reason I do this dumb blog. What a stupid f-ing judge I got!
It seems to me, a blogger should send a thank-you email but recently I made a couple nice tips to blogs I read daily and got nada in return. Maybe some bloggers get too big for their britches.
IMO, there is no reason a business that owns a premier domain name like philly.com can not be highy profitable in this day of the internet. The folks who have been runing these so-called businesses are just plain clueless!

Someone must do something and fast about this global warming problem! Pleasssssseeeee oh so wise President Obama - get together with our superior human beings at the U.N. and fix this asap! I can't take this heat and I don't want to die!

Meanwhile, when he gets back to DC tomorrow, there may be 1-2 feet of snow on the ground. Do Dems and Liberals realize how dumb this looks to the average American? [I think they do but they are so arrogant, they don't care].

A liberal I know said "after they lower the cost of healthcare, I hope they get to work to lower the cost of college next"!
The speaker is a very nice person but is obviously clueless as to how the world and economics works. She might as well have asked that "they lower the cost of Springsteen concert tickets". As if they could.

I went the 2001 game and it was a great event. George Bush attended and did the traditional thing where the Prez sits on Army's sideline for one half and Navy's sideline for the other half.

- Take West Virginia with the points vs. Rutgers.
- Take Fresno State with the points vs. Illinois.
- Take Florida and give points vs. Alabama. Tim Whathisname is a great QB and the Gators will win by 14 points.
- Upset of the week: Take Pittsburgh with the ponts vs. Cincinnati.
And don't blame me if you make a bet and lose! That is why it is called gambling. Heh.
UPDATE 12/6/09: I would have won 3 out of 4 of these picks. If I was in Vegas, my bets would have been $500 each on WVU and Pittsburgh, $200 each on Fresno St and Florida. Florida was my only loser and they lost big so there was no unnecessary suspense. Bottom line is I would have won almost $1,000 smackers. Stick with me- I don't bet often but tend to do OK when I do.
I will give my college bowl picks in a week or so.

It is not a stretch to imagine a bankrupt state like Michigan suing Al Gore and others for ruining that state's economy due to faulty [malicious psuedo-science?] theories.
Jeez, I have convinced myself this argument is a winning one! I wish I were a hungry lawyer. Heh.
"While cautioning that changes in the news business must be much better understood before any policy changes are made, Mr. Leibowitz [FCC Commissioner]said: "We should be able to take action if necessary to preserve the news that is vital to democracy." Mr. Leibowitz's wife, Ruth Marcus, is a columnist for the Washington Post, a fact he disclosed during the meeting."
Is that hilarious or what? The guy will be using my money [taxpayer] to help save his far-left liberal wife's job!

- Indian Casinos.
- Non-profit foundations and groups that are actually just special interest lobbies like Planned Parenthood or The Heritage Foundation.
- Minority set-asides for government contracts.
- People who claim they shoot under 80 in golf except pros of course.
- Fat people who say they are just big-boned.
- Those ads you see where a charity asks you to donate your old car to them [fyi - the salvage company pockets about 80-90% of the car's fair market value].
- Any of those miracle "AB machines".
- Green jobs or green energy.....sure they work if Uncle Sam subsidizes them with big bucks and forever.
- Colleges that let your kid take a major in something that is absolutely 100% worthless as to paying job & career [ Colleges should be required to provide parents with a written estimate of the future earnings for every major].
- The NFL. On any given Sunday, you could not pay me enough to watch 75% of its teams play. Why? Because 75% of the NFL teams suck!

Somewhere I read or heard from the MSM that some Wall Street firms had gotten allotments of the swine flu vaccine. Since there is a shortage of the vaccine, that "prioritization" did not sound fair or appropriate to me. Then I am talking to a friend who is a member of a construction workers union in the Philly area and he tells me he and his family got their flu shots at his union hall along with many other members [his local has at least 800-1,000 members or maybe even more than 1,000]. Again this "prioritization" does not sound right to me.
Especially after I heard my niece took her baby [13 months old] for her shots and the pediatrician did not have any swine flu vaccine! Can anyone tell me WTF is going on in this country?

I recommend the govt should now take its energy, tools, big ideas, grand plans and hard mofo govt employees and go to work to reform our health care system. Where could they go wrong?
[Note to self : I must go and visit the "New" New Orleans and see how all that hard work and taxpayer money has made it the gem of the South!] It has, hasn't it??
"There's a good case that health-care reform will relieve corporate America of burdensome costs and boost job mobility, and that a new green economy is the wave of the future, but convincing people that these complex pieces of legislation are the most relevant way to address their problems is a tough sell, and Obama hasn't really tried, or at least it seems that way. What Democrats miss most is Obama's clarion call, the visionary rhetoric that cut through all the noise of the campaign and signaled a new day in American politics."
Idiotor's comment: As if the cost of health care will just disappear and it won't be passed back to employers as a new, ginormous tax!

Furthermore, it may be decades before the Yankers win a World Series title in their new stadium. No one, not even Trooper York, will have a large enough reservoir of tears to shed during these long, dry years of Yanker failure. As a result, the Yanker fans will give up baseball and become Arena Football and Soccer fans. Heh.

[Idiotor's note : There is no idiotor but I noticed Jill Biden, an alleged Phillies fan did not wear any Phillies gear. Oh well, she is probably just another liberal phony like her dumb husband who I refer to as 'IBM' aka Irish Big Mouth Joe Biden.]
I wonder how many poor kids Corzine could have saved with that $120 Million? Most rich liberals are phony, two-faced fucks IMHO. Here is the detail from the MSM:
The Star-Ledger's Josh Margolin, Claire Heinin, and Claire Heininger report:
Corzine donated or loaned his general election campaign $22.6 million of its $24.1 million... The Democrat has now dedicated more than $120 million of his own money in his campaigns. He spent a combined $100 million on successful bids for U.S. Senate in 2000 and governor in 2005.Corzine's old firm isn't called 'Government Sachs' for nothing, apparently.

Think about that. The average human reacts to incentives and the desire to fulfill basic needs followed by advanced needs. When a system or govt installs processes or rules that contradict these innate instincts, the system or govt is destined to fail. The Obama admin does not understand this concept or it disagrees with it.

Well anyhow to get back to the point of this post...... On Sunday night Nov. 1st, the Phils are scheduled to play Game Four at home of the World Series and it could be against the Yankees. On the same day, the Eagles will play at home vs. The New York Petunias aka Giants. What does that mean you ask? .......It guarantees there will be an abundance of drunken Eagles fans boozing it up in the area right across the street from the Phillies ball park! And the city will go even more broke trying to pay all the overtime to its police dept to keep the riots and fights to only a few dead and dismembered. God, I love karma! And this will get ugly!

"Three prominent African American supporters of Seth Williams, the Democratic candidate for Philadelphia District Attorney, today accused his Republican opponent, Michael Untermeyer, of "lacking the racial sensitivity" required of a top prosecutor "in an ethnically diverse city."
Untermeyer, who is white, immediately branded the charge "ludicrous" and "a smokescreen" meant to obscure examination of the campaign's substantive issues. "This election isn't about race ... What's important is that we have the third highest homicide rate of any big city" in the nation, and a bail system that is broken, he said."

Phils have the edge:
- 1B Howard over Txeriera
- 2b Utley over whoever plays 2nd for the Yanks
- LF Ibanez over Damon
- CF Victorino over Swisher
- RF Werth over Matsui (is he in his fifties?)
- 3B Arod over Feliz
- SS Rollins vs. Jeter
- CA Ruiz vs. Posada
- The Yankees have the edge in pitching but not enough to be significant so the Phils repeat as World Series Champions!

But really, who should we hate the most? The obvious choices are any New York team or any Los Angeles team which has an overrated manager like Joe Torre or the Yankees with conceited players like A-Rod or the mostly overrated Jorge Posada? So, this is a real connundrum we have in Philly. In fact, most of us can't even pronounce connundrum. But I and most of the fans in Philly truly enjoy dishing out our disgust, hate, vituperation and disdain to the teams and players we judge are most deserving of our attention. Heh.

I view the Journal as an excellent product and fantastic news & opinion resource. But I wish it had a local news section and local sports section, then I would cancel my subscription to the Philadelphia Inquirer.
Actually, I predict News Corp will one day roll out a customized edition of the Journal which will also offer sections with the local market's sport news and local news. In fact, I'd be surprised if Rupert Murdock was not already evaluating that as a viable business model to grow the Journal's revenue!
Why do liberals like Lamont feel the need to hem and haw and be so careless with the truth?
I was thinking [yes it is painful for someone as dumb as I am] and remembered the Fed govt approved a bill earlier this year that expanded S-chip health insurance coverage for like 6 million more kids. The cost was about $1,700 per person. So I thought what if we did the same thing for the 30 million or so uninsured [of the legal variety]. At that rate, it would cost $51 Billion a year. We could pay for it by increasing the Federal income tax of every worker. It would be an increase of about $300 per year per worker!
If we have to do something, this idea of mine sounds about simple as it could be. My numbers may need to be tweaked but they probably work and the bill could be written on maybe two sheets of paper!
Mr. President and all you Congress critters, you are very welcome to use this idea of mine. Just be warned, I have a million more for you to consider!

For extra credit: What onetime NBA star and former head coach once owned this bar? His nickname was The Kangaroo Kid and he was from New Yawk!
Go Phils! [Yikes the game ended at 2:15AM] I may go right into the office and get caught up on stuff. Nah, screw that, I am hitting the sack for a couple hours.

I'd say this indicates his opponent, the incompetent, incumbent, Wall Street wizard, Jon Corzine , is getting desperate. If New Jersey voters return Corzine to office, the state deserves to continue to wither and die economically. It is fair to say the Dems and the corruption in New Jersey have bankrupted the state, increased govt spending to among the highest in the nation and caused productive taxpayers to leave the state.
So I guess we will see on election day if the voters prefer a fat, possibly competent governor to the current, bald, far left liberal tax and spend incumbent.

Quote from Loyola Website:
Diane Geppi-Aikens Service to Loyola Award recognizes and honors distinguished members of the senior class whose enthusiastic spirit and unwavering commitment have enhanced the quality of life for students, faculty and/or staff at Loyola University. Named for a woman whose indomitable and generous spirit represented the best of Loyola University, this award is the University's highest honor bestowed upon student leaders.This year's recipients are Dave Gullotti and Ashley Vaughan.
One will lay out a ten year budget for the nation. It will make recommendations on how to fix the soc sec, medicare deficits. For example, it should let younger people keep more of their money in private buckets aka lockboxes where no Congress critter can get his hands on it. It will eliminate [for the most part] big redundant wasteful departments like Education, Energy, HUD, etc. It will include a dedicated fed tax of $0.25 or so per gallon to fund infrastucture repairs and updating. It will itemize the areas of govt involvement it sees as appropriate and the areas where govt should butt out!
The other plan will address a real Stimulus Plan that restores the confidence of Americans. It would include a suspension of the employee's portion of the FICA tax for two years until the whole Soc Sec plan is revised and made solvent. It would be designed to encourage people to invest and save money, fix up their homes, start and expand businesses, return to school to update theire skillsets, etc.
Since Obama and his pals are clueless, the country needs Republicans to do this in writing asap!

This is no shock but it looks like the coach, Andy Reid, has deluded himself too. Yesterday, Reid cut his Pro Bowl guard, Shawn Andrews. To be fair to Reid, Andrews may or may not have a back injury and Andrews definitely dances to a tune only he can hear.
I will stick to my instincts and predict the Eagles will not make the playoffs! I look forward to the day Andy Reid gets his arrogant self out of town and takes McNabb with him.

Let me be serious for a moment. Why are govt agencies funding, in any way, alleged non-profit groups which have political motives? IMO, the govt should not fund any non-profit groups. Instead, we should cut out this type of govt spending.That would enable govt to actually reduce tax rates.
If a non-profit group provides a useful community service, it should have to solicit donations to fund its operations. And individuals would nowhave more money in their pockets due to the reduced tax rates! Theoretically at least, individuals would then be more willing and able to make charitable donations to worthy non-profits. Make sense to you? I thought so.

On CNN just now, the head ACORN scumbag, Scott Levenson, said ACORN was done in by "journalism by Borat". That is a pretty good line but tough shit shitbag! If I ever see this guy on the street, I may give him a knuckle sandwich just because.
BTW, there are plenty of shitbag Republicans in Congress and they had better not get too comfortable.
.......so guess which of these pics makes me more proud?
The answer is both make me proud. The top picture because it shows Americans are waking up and angry.
And the bottom picture too because I love to laugh and I love to laugh at pompous big shots like Robert Gibbs.

That Spendulus kickstart must be just around the corner! [Not]. So I am creating a new label called "wreckonomics" in honor of how President Obama and the Dems have destroyed what little was left of the American people's confidence!
Until last year, I had never ever donated more than $100. Yet I reached deep and sent you more than $1,200 in your bid to be president.
In case you have not noticed, President Obama is intent on destroying the American economy which was already on shaky ground when he took office. His motives are unclear but his lack of knowledge in rudimentary economic principles is glaring and alarming. In college, I took more than 30 credit hours in economics. Twenty years ago, I worked my butt off to prepare for the CPA exam which I passed. So, I am capable of spotting a poseur who knows very little and has no interest in mastering the basics of economics.
The president seems to harbor a resentment towards capitalism and I find it hard to believe Obama is listening to advice from his econ team. At this critical juncture, why would he desire to disrupt such a large part of our economy? He promises to find cost savings but he has never been the type of politician who reduces govt spending.
To date, his actions and attitudes have severely damaged the confidence of most thinking Americans.
The bottom line is I am disappointed in you. You heard President Obama lie about illegal immigrants [there is no eligibility enforcement tool in the Dem bills] yet you are so quick to jump on the wagon to bash Joe Wilson.
You know the country's finances have been damaged by deficit spending in the last 30 years. It is fair to say long-serving reps like you and Joe Biden and many others stood by and allowed this to happen. You must wake up and speak up before it is too late. We need representatives who will fight for limited govt and right the financial ship.This is not about you or me. It's about saving the American dream and its unique plethora of opportunities for future generations.

We were responsible for verifying the member or claimants eligibilty and we also processed and paid the major medical claims. I learned a lot in that job. It was after ERISA had been enacted and we had to prepare and publish and distribute a benefits booklet for every union member. I remember I had to give a talk explaining the benefits to about a billion members at a dinner one evening [OK maybe there were 500 people there].
Anyhow, we created a flowchart or decision tree to use to evaluate each claimant's eligibility [you had to work like nine months in the last 18 months for a union shop to be eligible]. We validated the employment history and eligibility for every claim we got no matter how small the medical bill! [and this pre-dated computerized records!]
That is why I am stunned but not surprised when Obama says "illegal immigrants are not covered" because health care providers will not be allowed to check or verify the citizenry status of patients!! That means, of course, illegal immigrants will be covered and that means Obama did lie last night.

Of course, I also predict Obama will not have his good, original idea until after he has left office! [ afterall Obama is following in the footsteps of one of the most ineffective presidents of all time- Jimmy Carter- who I voted for twice I swear that is how dumb I once was].
That is how many more blog posts I have to do this year to meet my parole requirements. I must do exactly 176 per year while the internets is still the thing. And this is No. 77!

I remember when the sports guy actually had some broadcasting skills so they gave him sufficient time to provide a quick rundown on all the pro scores (in season natch). To be fair to this ex-Petunia, the local sports time slot has been reduced in favor of 2 or 3 weather spots. They seem to think Americans are big pussies because they try to scare the crap out of you every time there is a thunderstorm or snow flurry in the forecast.

But they also own and operate http://www.philly.com/
If you started a business from scratch and also owned this domain name in an MSA with 7-8 million people and two newspapers that drive annual revenue of $120-$150 Million or so, what is that worth? In my business (M&A world), you have to peg or assume a profit rate. Let's use 15% for the sake of argument. That is profit of maybe $20 Million.
Ergo this is a potentially sweet business. I could make this combination work and I don't know squat about the newspaper business except it tends to be run by folks who have problems with capitalism and profit [for examples see Chis Scatullo and Zack Stalberg]. They generally have a million excuses for why they don't have any [profit].

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) -- Newspapers' financial woes worsened in the second quarter as advertising sales shrank by 29 percent, leaving publishers with $2.8 billion less revenue than they had at the same time last year. It's the deepest downturn yet during a three-year free fall in advertising revenue -- newspapers' main source of income. The magnitude of the industry's advertising losses have intensified in each of the last 12 quarters..........Still, the statistics served as a stark reminder of the crisis facing newspapers as they try to cope with a brutal recession and advertising trends that have shifted more marketing dollars to the Internet............the latest turbulence left U.S. newspapers with ad sales of $6.8 billion in this year's second quarter compared to $9.6 billion last year......through the first half of the year, newspaper ad revenue plunged 29 percent to $13.4 billion....."When the economy eventually begins its recovery, advertisers will return to spending, and newspapers will find themselves extremely well positioned to harness the strength of their print and digital platforms to build a brighter future," Strum predicted. .......Industry analyst Ken Doctor of Outsell Inc. isn't as confident. In a report released earlier this week, Doctor predicted newspapers won't recover all the advertising revenue that has evaporated during the past three years because be believes the recession accounted for only half of the decline. The other half of the equation represents ad spending that has permanently migrated to less expensive options on the Internet, Doctor said......Even newspapers' Internet advertising suffered in the second quarter. The industry's online ad revenue totaled $653 million, a 16 percent drop from last year.

Anyhow, til the other night when Texas beat Chula Vista, I thought ChulaVista was unbeatable. Shows you how much I know.
What a great country! Right now Chula Vista leads Georgia team 5-4.......scratch that Georgia rallied and now Georgia is ahead 9-5 in the 4th inning.
But let's be honest about a well-known public figure. When he was a 37 year old, married, U.S. Senator, he was responsible for a car accident where he left a young woman behind to suffocate at the bottom of a pond while he saved himself and went to sleep off a huge drunken hangover.
If he had any class or true remorse, Ted Kennedy would have withdrawn from his public life as a senator. He would have spent the rest of his life doing meaningful volunteer work.
But no , Ted Kennedy craved the spotlight and power so he stayed in the senate. He was hypocritical as well. For example, in 1974, Ted Kennedy berated Prez Ford for pardoning Nixon. Kennedy asked if there were two types of justice in America and one was reserved for the connected and powerful! [did he actually say this with a straight face].
I think it is outrageously funny when his kids say "Dad worked so hard". What did a fat drunk know about hard work? IMO, Ted Kennedy was a huge embarrsassment to most thinking Irish-Americans, Catholics and the hard-working taxpayers of America.
I hope Massachusetts replaces Kennedy with a senator who has actually held a real job in their life. There are enough limousine liberals in Congress already. We don't need anymore like Ted Kennedy.

Many of us have seen this before. A young, connected employee is elevated to a position for which he is not really qualified. Most observers will patiently watch while the greenhorn makes mistakes. Sometimes he learns from his mistakes and due to his innate talent and intellect, he can grow into the job.
Is Obama learning on-the-job? Will he learn from mistakes he has made like letting far-left liberal Congress critters write a lousy, ineffective Stimulus plan?
The answer is it remains to be seen. But I would bet Obama is too arrogant to learn new tricks and lacks the common sense and humility to tuly change so he will continue to flounder. He will go down in history as an ineffective president and poor leader.

Is it just me, or did we have a similar headline on this very Web site Friday morning?
Except instead of Coughlin and Giants, it said Reid and Eagles. The G-Men AKA PETUNIAS lost to the Bears, 17-3, last night and Tom Coughlin wasn't pleased with the way his team performed. "Quite frankly, we got embarrassed," he said, per Mike Garafolo of The Newark Star-Ledger. "I don't like that word: 'flat,'" he added. "(The players are) professional athletes. I question their focus. ... There isn't one phase that I thought played well. I didn't think we were very physical at all. We came in with some solid physical objectives and things we didn't do from the first week we had to improve upon. We really didn't accomplish any of those."
The Giants had several players sidelined also, plus they just played Monday night and had only two practices in between games. The one newsworthy item from the game is that defensive tackle Jay Alford, a Penn State product, suffered what is initially being termed an MCL sprain. Per Garafolo, Alford will undergo an MRI and other tests today.
I got a letter yesterday from Sestak re the health reform bill. He stated very clearly the bill requires everyone to purchase health insurance. Of course, whoever can not afford it, we the taxpayers will have to pay for their's as well as our own. Here is the quote from Sestak's letter:
"The bill mandates that individuals purchase insurance with limited exceptions. Government would beresponsible for ensuring that every American has access to quality health insurance by providing subsidies to qualifying low- and middle-income families....yada yada yada".
Blogger's comment: I recommend freedom-loving Americans un-elect Congress critters like Joe Sestak. I disagree with his policies vehemently but have respect for Joe Sestak, the veteran.

I bet I can make a killing. There must be tens of thousands of people who majored in philosophy or tree-hugging or communications and made their parents pay $100,000 in tuition to get a worthless degree.
I bet the rate of alcoholism and drug use is way higher among those parents than the general population. Well, no wonder- their kid was smart enough to go to college but dumb enough to major in a useless subject.
Click here to read a story where a student is suing her dear old alma mater cause she can't find a job.
My theorem is as follows: When you offer Americans a product at a big frigging discount, they will want and buy more of that something.
My evidence: The hoards of paying customers who crowded into car dealers to buy cars when the govt offers a substantial discount aka $4,500 smackeroos!
Actually, this is really not news to anyone outside the Obama administration.
So once the plan goes through, I will make up a new identity to get free healthcare. Does that make me a bad person?

Union members used to stick together like thieves. I mean that in a good way. At one time, union construction workers, teachers, casino employees, steelworkers and even college professors were reluctant to buy foreign cars. They knew buying "American" supported a fellow union and its members.
I suspect this form of union fellowship has gone by the wayside. If you looked in the driveway of Andy Stern, SEIU President, I'd bet you'd see nothing but foreign cars. If you counted the cars in an Atlantic City casino employee parking lot, you'd probably see 2 foreign cars for every Amercian car.
To go back to the point of my blog post. I bet if you surveyed the cars owned by the White House staff, you'd get the same result : 2 to 1 in favor of foreign cars and most of those dweebs at the White House are anti-car as well [but I digress as that is food for thought for another blog post].
Think about this for a moment- do today's govt workers and their bosses and today's union leaders have the balls to quietly encourage their members to buy American?
FYI next time, I drive by a public school, I will stop and count the number of American cars versus foreign cars owned by the school employees. And I will report back to you. Howsat sound to you?

Some farmer in Iowa set up a lemonade stand and he set his prices based on the customer's annual income. The higher your annual income, the more you pay for his lemonade. He calls it Hopey Changey Prices.
This is too funny. The farmer he did this as a joke and because the Des Moines Register newspaper sponsors an annual bikeride across Iowa. Those bike riders will be passing by his farm this week.

....Requies en pace. Today is the 40th anniversary of her death and the moon landing. I wonder how many people know that?
I distinctly recall the front page dominated by news of the moon landing and a smaller story anouncing "Senator Kennedy In Car Accident". I saved that paper but don't know if I still have it. Anyway, this photo tip from Instapundit spurrred me to do this blog post.
[P.S. I suspect my Latin spelling is not too good anymore].
