Thought For The End Of the Year..... know I am not the nicest guy in the world. Hell, I am not even the 3 billionth nicest guy in the world but at this time of year, I do wish that everyone in this world had a warm, loving home and enough food to eat!

Happy New Year to all!

This Blog Sucks...... I resolve to kill it or fix it in 2010!

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!

Blogs & Tip Jars.... it usual and customary for a blogger to acknowledge their receipt of a gift made to them via their blog's tipjar or pay pal button?

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.

Liberal brains are really different. They can't do basic arithmetic nor logic and have trouble giving a simple yes or no answer to a question.

Alas, all that training gone to waste...

Best of September 2009

I think this is the post where I coined the term "wreckonomics" to describe the economic knowledge and polices of President Obama.

Best of August 2009

I think I am pretty good at slicing and dicing the numbers on financial statements and estimating the revs an expenses for many industries.

IMO, there is no reason a business that owns a premier domain name like 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!

Did you have a nickname?

Let's see of the old crowd I saw last night here are some of the nicknames we had: Beast of the East,Beastly, Craz, Mad Russian, Sneaky Nazi, Saul St. Snap out, Pete from Alaska,Punchy, Yako, Captain Pineapple, Nitro [his partner in crime Glycerine did not show up], Lynchie, Schucky.

Merry Christmas!

I have more than I ever even dreamed of having. I was at a party last night and saw about ten of the guys from my grade school and high school days. We were borderline juvenile delinquents but most of us have had successful and happy lives. We all agreed that for a bunch of row-house denizens from Philadelphia, we have more than we ever dreamed of! For that I am thankful and somewhat in awe. Merry Christmas!

More Wisdom.....

....from a wiseass.

Talent hits a target no one else can hit. Genius hits a target no one else can see.

Three Stages of Truth....

....I don't know where I read this but they ring true and are perhaps topical as to some of the controversial topics of the day and no, I am not referring to Christmas and the Baby Jesus and you are damn straight, there is a Santa Claus. So I give you the Three Stages of Truth to ponder with your Christmas hangover:
1- Ridicule, 2- Opposition and 3- Self Evident. [I bet these are what old whathsname experienced way back when he said the earth was round!]

9PM in Philly - We are doomed .....

.....because it is so hot, it is white hot! Everything looks like winter snow.

530PM in Philly- Even Poor Old SantaClaus..... about to experience spontaneous combustion! Oh, President Obama won't you do something to save Christmas?!

5 PM in Philly - When It Is So Hot......

......that the human body actually melts, does it look like these pictures?

1 PM in Philly - Is The Earth .....

.....moving closer to the Sun? My God, I am walking around dressed only in my underwear and it is still so damn hot. Plus there is only 4-5 inches of snow on the ground.

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!

You Really Can't Make This Stuff Up........... a few minutes, President Obama will make some big announcement that they reached a global warming junk science agreement in Copenhagen.

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].

Liberal Brains.....

.......must work very differently than my brain.

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.

Army Navy Game..... one of America's greatest traditions!

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.

.......should have been named Yaho! Everytime I mis-type my yahoo logon ID as, that idea comes to mind. Yaho would have been a much better domain name than Yahoo! Hell they could have said it was named after the women Tiger Woods was screwing. Heh.

My College Picks.......

..........and no Doofus I am not referring to my choice for the best schools of higher education. I am referring to my college football picks that will win me some serious moolah this weekend. Don't blame me if you don't have the balls to make a bet and my picks win. Here are my picks:
  • 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.

How Long Before.......

......we see lawsuits against the Global Warming zealots who have, at a minimum, exagerrated the threat of global warming? Their dire forecasts led nations to enact stringent & costly energy rules and regulations. A skilled litigator can argue these onerous rules and regulations caused some businesses to decline as well as the states and towns where the impacted businesses were located.

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.

Funniest Thing I Read....... quite a while. I LOL when I read the last line below [in red]. This is a quote from a Wall Street Journal article about how the Federal Communications Commission may intervene to prop up newspapers via taxpayer subsidies! WSJ story quote starts here:

"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!

Global Warming ...... a scam just like I have always thought. I wonder how many other scams or frauds I can think of right now:
  1. Indian Casinos.
  2. Non-profit foundations and groups that are actually just special interest lobbies like Planned Parenthood or The Heritage Foundation.
  3. Minority set-asides for government contracts.
  4. People who claim they shoot under 80 in golf except pros of course.
  5. Fat people who say they are just big-boned.
  6. 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].
  7. Any of those miracle "AB machines".
  8. Green jobs or green energy.....sure they work if Uncle Sam subsidizes them with big bucks and forever.
  9. 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].
  10. 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!
