From the Drudge Report, CBS:
GLENDALE, AZ. (CBS SF) – A violent brawl in the upper deck of the University of Phoenix stadium spilled down a staircase and left several fans bloodied during the San Francisco 49ers game at Arizona Sunday.
Somebody call Anheiser Busch! This football violence is getting out of hand!
America’s favorite pastime! Football, Beer, and fighting!
Who lost their bet?
Where’s Al Sharpton when you need him?
Hey, check out that girl!
Not enough diversity in football fans.
Or…how can they even SEE the game from up there?
All fans should require helmets.
No booze allowed until after the game.
WHAT did you say about him?
And if you think our football fans our bad, just wait until American soccer starts catching on.
The rest of the world is way ahead of us.
Sorry…I missed my afternoon deadline for Friday, so, Nobody Cares if I just post this really cool video of one of our soldiers (obviously somewhere in the Middle East) playing the Star Spangled Banner during Muslim prayer time.
And let’s add to that uplifting moment, this picture of a sunset that was taken on 9/11 over Richmond, VA.
This was coming from my friend Ruth, a German woman who survived the bombing of Dresden. “and then she MARRIES him!”
I was sitting across the table at our annual “old ladies who swim” luncheon today, and I watched Ruth grab her hamburger and shake her head in disbelief.
She makes a good point, I thought: Since when do people lose their jobs for something they don’t do on the job? This is happening every single day. Even kids are getting kicked out of school for something they don’t even DO in school.
Even thirty years ago, this would not have happened.
She was talking about the subject that has been all over the news for two whole weeks. A football player named Ray Rice, was caught on video, knocking his girlfriend to the floor in an elevator. He then dragged her out of the elevator, and took her home. Obviously, they were both drunk.
Everybody knows that this happens more than we care to think about. Black men beat up their women at a rate higher than white men. Muslim men liked it so much, they wrote it into their religion.
But the excommunication ball got rolling in the fast pace of public lynching: The NFL suspended Ray Rice for life.
Then another football player named Andrian Peterson beat his kid, and we started on the subject all over again.
Well, that did it. Nike terminated Peterson’s deal, worth $750,000 a year. Although it didn’t end its relationship with Michael Vick (the dogfighter), Kobe Bryant OR Tiger Woods.
Anheuser-Busch weighed in on it too.
“We are disappointed and increasingly concerned by the recent incidents that have overshadowed this NFL season. We are not yet satisfied with the league’s handling of behaviors that so clearly go against our own company culture and moral code. We have shared our concerns and expectations with the league,” the statement said.
So, it’s okay to CHEAT on your wife, abuse animals, but…you can’t knock a woman out cold. (And make sure you don’t mention you just had a few Buds)
Maybe we need to review what moral code everybody is following. Like Obama’s war strategy, it’s all over the map.
We have MORE:
Arizona Cardinals running back Jonathan Dwyer was arrested Wednesday on aggravated assault charges in connection with two altercations at his home in July involving a woman and an 18-month-old child, the latest in a string of such cases involving NFL players.
Wow. The NFL is on a roll…
Glenn Back had this to say, and I would imagine there are a lot of people who agree with him:
“I’m telling you right now that the only things that matter are principles and values, how you deal with people, how you behave in your personal life and how you behave in your business life,” Beck said. “That’s it. … If you don’t start falling in line with true values, if you don’t start falling into line with eternal principles and common decency, your business is over. It’s just over. And I give that message to the NFL.”
“We are teaching our kids that it doesn’t matter what you do in your personal life, as long as you excel at whatever it is that you do,” Beck concluded. “That’s wrong. That’s showing them that money is over everything else. It’s not.”
Wait…”WE” ? Who are ‘we’? Let’s get this straight. Before the private lives of football players became the most discussed subject on the National stage, we had the private lives of politicians to talk about…only the media cleverly HID all their abuse, (and killings, and murders, and wife beatings) for years.
Glenn Beck was saying today that the State Department was covering up prostitution rings by their ambassadors.
Bill Clinton raped a woman. He kept his job…he almost bit her tongue off. He embarrassed a whole country with his philandering, and he is one of the most popular men on the planet.
And how about those liberal values? Aren’t they really to blame for most of this? John Kennedy…FDR…no values. No principles. How many horn dogs have occupied the White House, and what kind of example do THEY set for the rest of the nation?
Is Nike or Anheuser Busch going to come out and publicly ostracize them?
Yes, we all want morals. But…I can’t help but go back to Ruth.
BEFORE cameras, before NSA, before… Face it, your cooked book…. before cell phones, American’s private lives almost never effected their jobs. Unless of course they got arrested.
We are in a whole new world of crime and punishment. I’m just wondering when they are going to be putting this stuff up on BIG screens throughout the cites.
I heard a male friend of mine say with a resounding gusto of testosterone and common sense of justice…YES!
Nobody Thinks this stuff has happened since the beginning of time, but only NOW with government surveillance, does the whole world get to punish you, and then Nobody Wins when we are all on camera.
In 1984, there was a camera in every room watching your every move.
If I was Ray’s Wife, I’d get him that new giant HD Samsung TV.
We are all spies now.
This week, we don’t have to go any further than that great melting pot of talent called New York.
We have a Nobody’s Perfect contest between the people who dress up as Cartoon Characters in Times Square, VS the newly crowned Miss America, who, you guessed it— is from New York!
This is going to be a tough one.
First: Let’s take the dweebs that harass tourists in Times Square. It seems there are ways to make a living, and there are ways to…make a living and not pay taxes. It’s been a long time since I’ve been to Times Square, but since Rudy Giuliani cleaned up the “LIVE SEX ON STAGE!” acts, ALL the men from Wall Street have gone mad…wait….no…. the corporates have moved in and made it a very family friendly experience— you know, a place you can take the kids and watch Batman and Spiderman duke it out…for REAL. Several weeks ago, Spiderman hit a cop, and yes, Batman and Spiderman were arrested for fighting.
Cookie Monster has been known to grab at other things besides cookies.
Since I can’t figure out why Marvel doesn’t sue these people for using their trademarked and copyrighted images, it seems the city of New York has let this go on. But, too many people are showing up dressed as Cartoon Character (70?) and that means too many guys bantering for the same $5.00.
Second: And then you have Miss America…
Kira Kazantsev, the contestant from New York, won the Miss America contest last night, and everybody today is having trouble understanding why. In the talent contest she decided to sit on the floor and play…not four, not fifteen, not twenty, but ONE plastic cup. And that was even hard for her.
I couldn’t figure this out. She had a decent voice, WHY distract from it? You can’t imagine the horror of all New Yorkers…a place that has been known to produce some of the finest talent in the world. And this insult after the fantastic funeral from a REAL New Yorker…Joan Rivers.
I don’t know about you, but it doesn’t make me want to visit Broadway any time soon.
So, who wins the Nobody’s Perfect Award for the week?
Frankly, I didn’t watch the Miss America contest, so I’m going by the video here. I’m guessing she looked pretty good in her swimsuit, or somebody donated a LOT of money to the right judge. While the rest of America wonders what in the world this girl did in college to learn how to play cups besides drink shots of vodka, we can only wonder why she didn’t just sing the song standing on her feet. Still, there have been worse acts to come out of New York…Hillary Clinton for one.
Shame on them. I’m almost tempted to get a plane to New York, dress up as Wonder Woman, and throw them both out of Times Square!
(Ha! Ha!) Sure. Maybe I’ll just follow them around and beat loudly on a plastic cup, while singing “I’m Henry the VII I am!” and drive them crazy enough that they quit and get a minimum wage job like the rest of us.
So, it’s official—- the Mayor of New York wins the Nobody’s Perfect Award for the week.
Be the draconian progressive that you are Mayor De Blasio, and make these people pay taxes like the rest of us, or let Marvel take them to court.
Didn’t you learn ANYTHING in Russia?
This is amazing isn’t it?
Janay Rice not only accepts the fact that she was fully punched and knocked out by the man who “loves” her and doesn’t care, she has the gall to go on the ATTACK. She is attacking all the media outlets who are exploiting the elevator film for ratings and controversy. How DARE anyone get in her business!
Let’s look at it from HER side. Maybe she thinks she was asking for it. And by cutting off all his paycheck, she will have to stop buying new shoes, new coats, new clothes, new cars…she sees her future as disappearing from her life. Is it any wonder that she so pissed? After all, he didn’t kill her. He said he would NEVER do it again. She must think that she really is special.
Now, lets look at it from OUR side: Are you nuts? Why didn’t you have him arrested? Why didn’t you press charges? Instead you MARRY the guy? What did he buy you to make up? Enquiring minds want to know: Was it a diamond ring? A new car? A fur?
Actually, MS Rice thinks just like a democrat. When you HAVE no defense for your actions–do what Obama does—–Attack the other side for even criticizing you.
Why…blame Bush! Blame the white racists who own the football teams. I can’t believe you haven’t thought of that MS Rice.
Nobody Wonders about the mentality of abused women, but I’d say, if Janay wants to believe that this man, will never touch her again, I wonder…
Has she ever heard the 911 calls to the police from Nicole Simpson, long before she was murdered?
Stupid is, as stupid does. We hope his money is worth it Janay. Oh wait: He’s going to lose all that money. Better get it while you can.
I’d say —Better get yourself a gun, and stop spitting.
Attention! All Ferguson shoppers! Miami has joined you!
What is really fun about this video is the look on the protester’s faces when the reporter asked them the simple question:
“How much money does one McDonald’s make in a day?”
They have no clue. And why would they? To them, everybody that buys a McDonald’s hamburger is rich.
On the other hand, I wonder if it was rush hour, don’t you?
Nobody Gets Email
Is it Sunday already? Does anybody know where Al Gore is, because I would like to ask him how come we had the coolest summer on record.
Okay. We finally got pool weather, and the pools are closing on Monday.
So, as a relief from global warming, I thought I’d post this video. I knew they did this stuff–its like something I saw on the back wall of a Grateful Dead concert when I was 19.
You can ‘imagine’ if this artist did drugs, dropped acid and smoked himself silly at a Doors concert, or…not.
Whatever you think of this, I personally would have left out Mao.
(Thanks to JR)
How about a good news story? After all, cops can’t be everywhere. This Wal-Mart employee did not mess around.
God bless the 2nd amendment,
God bless our vets.
Who are…NOBODY’s FoolS
Yesterday in St. Louis, TWO cops shot a crazy black man, but, nobody is upset about it. The blacks are like, uh..okay.
And why is that?
Was it because the officer that shot the man (who was just ‘shoplifting’) was NOT white?
Nobody has a dream…it’s a silly dream, a fun dream…tell me what you think:
They destroyed Los Angeles…
They attacked New York….
Now it’s time for all good people in the country to rise up, and DEMAND …
Sharknado Three to destroy Washington, D. C.!
If you didn’t watch Sharknado Two tonight, I’m not sure you’re really in America. There was enough bad New Jersey jokes to put every New Yorker in happy camp. The jokes were bad, the cabby was repetitive, the hero ran around a lot, the acting was terrible, the kids were wimps,…and the sharks were wonderful.
Nothing is funnier than a giant shark falling out of the sky.
But, it wasn’t enough: I want to see the next shark storm…attack the Capitol.
Think of it: Nancy Pelosi gets her head bit off by a great white. That alone might be worth the whole movie.
John McCain, could be flattened by a hammerhead. Hillary could be torn in half while saying, “What difference does it make?”
We could watch the politicians running out of the Capitol, screaming for their lives, sharks falling from the sky, biting off noses, and arms and legs…Harry Reid could be swallowed whole by a shark with a Koch Brothers logo on his side.
The generals in the Pentagon could be attacked while running wild under a storm of sharks in the National Cemetery.
Come on, admit it. Think of the tension it would relieve all over the country to have a good laugh at all the politicians who torture us every day, to see them running scared from Sharks?
OBVIOUSLY, it’s the next best idea for the continuation.
I’d even PAY to see it, wouldn’t you?
Keep it in mind: Sharknado Three: Washington D.C. Coming soon to your TV.
It’s the ONLY logical choice.
This week, we have two clear examples of people who simply can’t control themselves:
Bob Beckel VS Michael Suh and Nicole Germack
Let’s start with Bob.
According to the mainstream media, and a few nutty liberal politicians, Bob should be fired for “racial” slurs.
He got pretty mad on THE FIVE (FOX’s TV SHOW) about Chinese people, and just blurted out this:
“The Chinese are the single biggest threat to the national security of the U.S.,” he said. “They have been, they will be and they can wait, they’re very patient. Do you know what we just did? As usual, we bring them over here and we teach a bunch of Chinamen — er, Chinese people — how to do computers and then they go back to China and hack into us.”
And Bob did NOT stop there! Listen to the rest of the tape to hear the rest. Why— Bob even accuses the Chinese of making cheap toys and poisoning our pets!
Even if it IS true, was that any reason for him to offend the Chinese like that? I…am…shocked.
Actually, the Chinese also like to garden at night, and keep their American neighbors awake. Tonight I saw my Chinese neighbor outside down on his knees planting SOMETHING in his back yard…with his porch light on.
“Why do you think he’s PLANTING at night?” I asked my husband, as we continued to walk the dogs.
“Maybe that’s his wife’s body.”
They also do all their cooking in the garage, and they smell up the neighborhood with soy sauce.
I am SO glad that Bob didn’t mention those racists things because Bob just starting dating a new girl. No, it’s not the first time Bob Beckel has just not been able to keep his opinions to himself. He once called white people…”Crackers.”
And then we have Michael Suh and Nicole Germack of Newark. It seems, they wanted to have sex on the roof. They JUST couldn’t control themselves.
The officer told the couple to stop, but police say they continued for approximately 15-20 seconds before stopping. Both are facing charges of Resisting Arrest, Lewdness, Indecent Exposure, Loitering and Conspiracy.
Thinking back on all the strange places that I have felt the uncontrollable urge, I’m feel lucky to be sitting here and typing this fine work of literary magnificent for you fine people. I’m so glad I got myself under control, and not a minute too late it seems.
So..who wins the Nobody’s Perfect award for the week?
This is a hard one. On the one hand, what Bob said, most people would consider just an ‘opinion’ not racist. And an opinion based on facts. If that was a racist comment, than Harry Reid’s attacks on the Koch brothers should be considered racist. Harry Reid should be fired then too.
Bob has every right to express his opinion, by the Constitution. if we have to listen to Harry Reid, than Bob has every right to say he doesn’t like the Chinese.
On the other hand…WHY were people looking UP to a roof to watch a couple having sex?
Maybe Michael’s apartment was hot. MAYBE they thought no one could see them up there.
Maybe…these really ARE Rome’s last days.
Maybe that’s why Michael Suh (Who is Chinese) was having sex with Nicole on the roof.
Maybe he was hacking into her computer.
Hey, it’s a dangerous world out there and I say the Nobody’s Fool Award goes to—-
California state Sen. Ted Lieu (D) who called Beckel’s comments “racist”
“We should all be alarmed by the racist, xenophobic comments by Fox News host Bob Beckel,” said Lieu. “His comments have no place in America, and this is at least the second time he has used racial slurs. He must resign immediately.”
Congratulations Sen. Ted Lieu! You win the Nobody’s Perfect Award for the week for being such a moron.
And since I’m calling a Chinese guy a moron, I must be racist.
Move your cracker butt over Bob, give me some room.
You might have already seen this. One thousand high school students starting singing in a hotel, and … I’m so glad some one thought to go get their camera.
My husband wasn’t feeling well last night, so for the first time in my life, I did not go to anywhere to see fireworks. But I did go to the pool, and was chased in earnest on my way out, by some lady who looked as if had the most dire news:
“We just need to raise the utility taxes 7 percent.” the lady said. Good god. We fought a WAR over taxes this day in 1776. What a day to ask.
By the look on her face, things were dire. She stuck a flyer in my face which said that due to budget cuts, not only will the Fireworks display be gone forever, but our police and fire department would have to make cuts also.
Yes, my little town has become Detroit. We will cut everything but big government bureaucrats and their big overloaded pensions.
My friend, who saw the horror in her face, fell for it. “You know, we haven’t had to pay this tax for years.” she said.
We pay some of the biggest property taxes in Missouri. We also have the BIGGEST school district in Missouri, so you know, it’s full of teachers, administrators…democrats, all making big bucks.
More than 67 percent of our property taxes goes to the school, which is almost 75 percent black, and YET, the state lottery is suppose to support them too. And they want more.
Some of these people make over $230,000 a year. And our schools are horrible. I know, I went to them. (It’s one of the reasons my spelling is so bad.) So did my son.
Using FEAR and PITY, is an old political trick. Obama is using the children on the border right now…as a weapon.
As I read the headlines tonight on Drudge, its says we are a divided nation. Okay, but you sure couldn’t tell that today.
And yet…I did notice two things about this 4th that I have never noticed before:
I watched the celebrations in Washington D.C. and New York. In song, and spirit, it was one of the MOST Patriotic I’ve seen in years. They even said the Pledge of Allegiance with GOD left in! And in my neighborhood, where fireworks are not allowed, all around there were so many fireworks in the sky, smoke-filled the streets.
Everybody broke the law. What were the police going to do? Arrest them all? I loved it.
While, I think, in some small way, it was a good sign–in their own small way the people who put on these programs decided to go back to the America values of our traditions—–My husband said, “It’s all about false hope.” And he could be right. Tonight I noticed that my cable station added about 30 Spanish-speaking channels…not much hope for “One nation, under god.” with that is there?
Sometime this weekend, Obama will be wining and dining “illegals” who join the military. I guess American Citizens are not longer joining up. He is going full force with letting everyone who can get in, come in.
And where do we go to stop this invasion, brought to us to destroy our way of life by our own government?
Maybe our founders had the answer: Give the power, back to the states.
And that’s why I include this scene from the HBO series, John Adams.
The words, still stand. All we need to do is resurrect them.
Remember the old days when Miss America Contestants fretted over how to answer their question?
Miss Louisiana, Brittany Guidrey didn’t hesitate to put forth her NOBODY Opinion, and listen to the crowd.
Go ahead Brittany, run for office!
