Swisher Gets Benched........

.........with that name and the way he is playing, I think he will be trolling the streets around 42nd Street. Plus the ancient washed-up Jorge Posada is riding the pine tonight!

I will again predict a big Phils victory and use the same score I predicted last night. The Fighting Phils will win 10-3! Go Phils

Congressman Shows Common Sense.....

.......and a good sense of humor when this happened: Republican Congressman Jeff Flake, who represents Arizona’s Sixth District, today released the following statement regarding his vote against H.Res.784, a bill “honoring the 2560th anniversary of the birth of Confucius and recognizing his invaluable contributions to philosophy and social and political thought.” "He who spends time passing trivial legislation may find himself out of time to read healthcare bill," said Flake.

Hattip to Instapundit!

Game One......

......prediction is 10-3 Phils. I am psyched, psycho and pumped up so my prediction is agressive tonight! Go Phils!

[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.]

How Screwed Up .... Jon Corzine when he has spent $120 Million of his own money on his own politcial campaigns. Corzine is a bigtime far left liberal so he wants more and more taxpayer money to be spent on social programs!

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.

Granny Smith Was.... answer in today's crossword. I felt my head was getting a bit mushy so I decided to start doing a crossword everyday to exercise my brain. I began in January and it has definitely helped my memory and retention. I am getting good at completing the Philly Inquirer's daily crossword puzzle.....but not so good yet at the Sunday crossword.

I do not make this stuff up...

Go Phils!

Ivy League Grads.....

........have caused most of the country's problems. I think it is fair to say that. Let's start a backlash against Ivy League grads so they can't get hired or buy a house or rent an apartment or get a loan. Kick every one of them out of Congress and the White House. Like the old joke about lawyers, what do you call 1,000 Ivy Leaguers at the bottom of the ocean? A start!

Competitive Option.... the new term for the public option the Dems want to foist upon the Americans who pay the bills by pulling the oars day in and day out.

I say give us a competitive option and get rid of the current Congress- every stinking one of them. Then conduct a lottery and pick their replacements by randomly using the phone book if one still exists [shades of William Buckley I know but I borrow all of my good ideas from someone else].

The Two American League Teams....

.....look old to me compared to the Phils. Jeez, I look at Abreu, Jeter, Posada, Vladimir Guerrero, Johnny Damon, Matsui and they appear old and tired for baseball players. Even Mariano Rivera, who stills plays at the pentultimate level looks about 50 years old.

Peewee Herman.....

......was one of the all time great Yanks. Am I right?

Brilliant Comment by......

....RRhardin in the Althouse blog. He said: "No system works that opposes the rules [or laws] of human motivation".

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.

Are You Ready For Some Football....

.......and some baseball and some brawls and lotsa of police overtime? Haha- the city is crying poor mouth as usual about the cost of a potential Phillies parade [last year I think the Phillies paid $1 Million to the city to stop them from whining like little liberal Democrats].

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!

I am.......

.....Asante Samuel. No I am Asante Samuel. No I am Asante Samuel. No I am Asante Samuel. No I am Asante Samuel. No I am Asante Samuel. No I am Asante Samuel. No I am Asante Samuel.

Be Afraid ......

......Yankees be very afraid. This man er thing is coming to get you!..... and he will be riding a dune buggy! hahahahaha.

Best Scouts in Baseball.....

.......are the ones for the Phillies organization. Charlie Manuel pushed so many of the right buttons, it seemed like he was possessed or maybe sold his soul. Don't get me wrong, the Phils have many many great players but my hat is off too to the many Phillie's scouts who provided fantastic scouting reports on the Rockies and the Dodgers. Now, bring on the American League!

Constitution Center....

......only in Philadelphia can a white candidate get accused of racial insensivity by three black pols at a public museun called The Constitution Center. Makes me so proud to be from here! Here is part of the story from the Philly Inquirer:

"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."

Kathleen Sebelius is a Cougar .......

......or just a plain old barfly? Or Obama's Cabinet Secretary of Health & Human Services? Heh.
Hat tip to the DRUDGE REPORT!

Phils Won The World Series.....

....29 years ago today. October 21, 1980 was the date the Phillies last won the World Series not counting last year!

Phils vs. Yanks

Here is how they match up:

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?)
Yanks have the edge:
  • 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!

High Hopes....

....we have high apple pie in the sky hopes! This song was a trademark of Harry Kalas and I remember my Dad singing it too along with other tunes when the mood and the whiskey struck him just right. The Phils and their fans have high hopes after tonight's 9th inning come-from-behind victory!

NY Times ...... laying off more people. Jeez what must it be like to work there? They all gotta be looking for a new job at a think tank or at a far left liberal non-profit [like the PEW Foundation which has hired several former Philadelphia Inquirer socialists] where they can continue to churn out leftist propaganda.

A Rioting Refresher Course....

......reminder was in my mailbox today. It seems the odds for the Phillies to repeat as World Champs has been raised. So, I have been notified that my certification as a "Top Notch Drunken Rioter" has expired and I must report to Sam's Bar & Grille to update my credentials [which I will do gladly]. Heh.

Halloween's Coming and.....

,.....ex-Phillie Randy Wolf is in town. I will load the pictures when the internets stop acting up!

Rahm Emanuel......... such a phony and the MSM is complicit in deceiving its viewers. This morning, CNN had a sound bite where Emanuel criticized Wall Street for the bonuses it is paying to its employees.

Of course, Emanuel and CNN, failed to disclose Emanuel was paid more than $15 Million by an investment bank in less than three years after he left the Clinton White House!

Shame on you John King of CNN. You surely knew this and if you did not, you should have known it.

Oh Yeah ....

.....sports is kinda funny. You root for your team of course. But who do you root hard against the most? In Philly, that is a major dilemma. Cause there are so many teams and players and managers we could hate equally.

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.

Go Phils!

Go Phils!

Top of the fifth, the Fighting Phils lead 5-1 in the opener vs. the LA Dodgers! Looking good!

Wall Street Journal... just about the only newspaper that is increasing its circulation. [Click on my post title above to see the story from one of my favorite blogs, Gateway Pundit]. Or click below:

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!

Liberals Are Such Prevaricators.......

...........I saw Ned Lamont last night on Hannity. Lamont had the nerve to describe himself as a "small businessman"!! Ok perhaps Lamont has started a new business and it could still be small. .........But But But.....Lamont is a fat cat and probably worth about $50 or $100 Million!!! He made his fortune providing cable TV to college students and sold that cable company for mucho dinero!! I think his wife is one of those private equity folks who the Democrats love to demonize but look the other way when the same "demons" send them a nice, generous campaign contribution.

Why do liberals like Lamont feel the need to hem and haw and be so careless with the truth?

Health Care Reform...........

........made simple perhaps.

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!

Baggataway Tavern..... about 3 miles from my house. I have been there many times and here is a picture [from the Phila Inquirer] of some of the customers celebrating the Phillie come-from-behind win tonight.

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!

Huge Win...

......for the Phils. Their offense left way too many ducks on the pond but Brad Lidge got the save and that is HUGE for his confidence and the team's prospects. The Phils need Lidge to repeat as World Series champs!

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.

Go Phils.....

.....damn the Phils need a hit. It's a tie game 5-5, 1:33AM here in Philly and Matt Stairs is up with 2 outs in the top ofthe 8th. Come on Stairs! Get a g-damn hit or a passed ball so Ibanez can score from 3rd base. Count is now 3-2, I don't think they really want to give him anything to swing at. He swings and misses! Damn.

Christie's Weight..

....I googled that phrase and got 508 hits for news stories about that fact that the Republican candidate for governor of New Jersey is a bit beefy.

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.

Congratulations to .... ..... nephew, David Gullotti, a senior at Loyola University Maryland. The school gave him and a classmate the "Diane Geppi-Aikens Service to Loyola Award" which is the highest honor bestowed upon student leaders. See below quote from the school website [I do not make this stuff up you know]. He is a great kid [so far of course], majoring in bio-physics and hopes to be a doctor. Way to go Dave!

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.

Republicans need to.........

....put together two plans.

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!
