Happy New Year, (football) Suckers!

"Everyone" wanted it, you demanded it, you even voted for it and tonight you get to watch it - NCAA Football Playoff Games. Anyone who's read this blog knows that I despise the entire concept of a National Champion in College Football and would, if I could, do away with national rankings altogether. So I consider this entire exercise an advertising driven abomination that should be forbidden by law - constitutional amendment if need be - to bring the bowl games back down to earth. But that's not going to happen...

So tonight we have 4 teams competing in traditional New Years "Day" Bowl Games being played at night with the second game (the Sugar Bowl) STARTING at 8:30 PM ET thereby guaranteeing a midnight finish - ain't that grand?! At least the Rose Bowl will be played in daylight between the Ducks and some team from Florida that has no business playing in the Rose Bowl, not because they're not a great team, but because the Rose Bowl is where the Big 10 and Pack 10 fight it out and FLA isn't in the Big 10. But hey, this entire bowl schedule is a joke - The Taxslayer Bowl, The Bitcoin St. Petersburg Bowl, The Advocate V100 Texas Bowl - What the hell?

And what are they fighting for in this "playoff"? The chance to play again next week or a chance to win this:


This nameless, corporate monstrosity - looks like Jerry Sandusky's butt plug - is what awaits the winner of these playoffs. Who would actually want something like this? Who covets it? People like this:

Yep, Larry Culpepper (a fictional character, I think) who thinks the college playoffs are just dandy. Care to meet him? Probably not, but that's what the sponsors of this travesty actually think of YOU Mr. ESPN watching, sports radio listening football fan - YOU, the guy who pleaded and begged for a college football playoff schedule. Well, you got your wish sucker - Happy New Year and enjoy the commercials

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

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

@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
