Collage Football

It's that time of year again... NCAA College Football Bowl Games litter the ESPN cable channels day after day, week after week and my guitar gently weeps. The marathon kicks off on December 17th and refused to end until January 9th when the BCS champs will be crowned after winning the National Championship Game - Roll Tide.

In those 24 days football fans and other layabouts are treated to such oddities as the Famous Idaho Potato Bowl, the Insight Bowl. the Kraft Fight Hunger Bowl and the Discover Orange Bowl in an effort to distribute as much cash to as many colleges as possible so that this corrupt industry can keep on keep'n on.

Most of what I have to say on the subject has already been posted in years past - here in 2007 and here in 2005 but this year we have the additional horror of the Penn State football program and the disgrace of JoePa -BTW the Nittany Lion got there asses kicked by Houston Cougars in the TicketCity Bowl - SHAME. What happened at Penn State validated everything the haters of Big Time NCAA Football say is wrong with these "educational institutions" and the athletic programs that run them. Child rape - repeated and systemic child rape - that goes unreported and overlooked - an assistance coach afraid to confront or even report what he saw with his own eyes - Joe Paterno, a legendary icon of the game, long in the tooth and still clinging to a job he should have retired from 20 years ago, agreeing to retire at the end of the season now that he's been caught covering up for his child rapist defensive coordinator and one-time heir apparent, Jerry Sandusky. There is no way to sweep this one under the rug - or so I had thought, but here we are again watching the Bowl games drip, drip, drip...

5 years of College Football with no televised games, the elimination of College Football rankings and the entire concept of a National Champion and the creation of a Farm League for young aspiring football players (think of it as vocational schools for football players) would be great way to change things up.

The Real Story with Gretchen Carlson

She was "sexy", but "too much hard work." I'm a regular Fox & Friends viewer (mostly in protest of the other insipid morning programs like Today and Good Morning America) so over the years I've gotten to know Gretchen Carlson pretty well. Stuck between Steve and Brian she always seemed a prudish scold with an irritating, self-righteous demeanor that I simply put up with because I figured some people in the Fox audience actually liked her persona. It was obvious that Steve and Brian did not, but they were stuck with her like so many talking heads and had to make the best of it - which they did. Besides, she was no worse than any of the other women on morning show TV - I mean, you're only going to find a certain kind of person to do this kind of work and that kind of person is the Gretchen Carlson kind. Then, one day, she was gone and replaced by Elisabeth Hasselbeck and the F&F ratings began to climb, and climb and climb - in two months view

No Step On Snek

On The 2020 Election: In an elemental way We the People of the United States lost because Trump, and the MAGA movement he champions, forced the Deep State/Administrative State/New World Order (whatever you want to call it) and its enablers in Corporate America - Finance/FakeNews/Big Tech - to declare their sovereignty and steal our election in the most obvious way possible. The brazenness and " in yo face " shamelessness of the crime is a big part of its effectiveness and loudly proclaims an intent to demoralize and defeat the America First ideology which actually won the highest number of votes in this nation's history. It wasn't even close and that was made clear when key cities in 5 or 6 swing states declared they would pause (stop) counting(?!) votes until all the rural districts had submitted results allowing the big city machines to manufacture the ballots required to put Jo(((k)))e Biden in the lead. NPC's and Normies don't get too critical of process a

@POTUS hasn’t Tweeted

What happened to the 11,000 tweets? Twitter has conducted a "purge" of "conservative" voices from its "platform" and that includes the account of one Donald J Trump who happens to be the President of the United States of America. To which I say GOOD! Let's take it from the top. A purge (the bad kind) does not include getting kicked off a social network. If that's such a bad thing then the problem is with the society and not the network. Purges are when police officers bust down your door at 3AM, grab you and drive out to some empty field where they shoot you in the head and then tossed your limp body in a mass grave. A conservative is someone like Mitt Romney or these tools at the Lincoln Project who are free to post whatever lies or inflammatory rhetoric they want on Twitter. Twitter has no hatred for “conservatives” or Republicans as far as that goes and I don't think a single member of Congress or the political establishment has been "p
