RF23 – Clear and Cream

Tomorrow Bob Costas is supposed to be on "The Dan Patrick" show to express his anger over the Barry Bonds matter.   I guess the rat on his head is gnawing at him and got his ladies undergarments in a bunch.   Apparently, the verdict pissed off our white brethren and some are close to comparing this to OJ Simpson.  

Did you read that?

OJ Simpson?!

OJ almost locked off two people's head in what was a gruesome scene, some years ago..Barry locked off Hank Aaron's record and made Babe Ruth, a household third place name.   The sports media has bigger issues within itself than express outrage over a game and records. It's already worse that Bonds is going to be denied entry into the Baseball Hall of Fame for doing something that was not prohibited in his sport! 

I don't want to rehash the whole ugly truth on how Major League Baseball was slower than a snail going uphill with a backpack, in regard to regulating it's drug program which includes steroids.   It enjoyed one steroid induced season that involved Mark McGwire and Sammy Sosa, after it canceled a season and world series.  So like the NCAA, baseball profited off these players to bring butts back into seats and when it was player's butts in the sling either from congress or the hypocritical media, MLB slid off like a frightened snake.

And now, Bob Costas is outraged that a jury could not come up with a verdict that said Barry Bonds, knowingly used steroids.  Instead, the jury said, Bonds obstructed justice in regard to BALCO and of course, this leaves Bonds

Clear and Cream.

RF23-Lost Message

Apparently the last elections meant absolutely nothing to our elected officials on both sides of the aisle.  To the democrats it was supposed to mean that the people are sick and tired of being over taxed and regulated.  To the republicans it was supposed to mean that the people picked their side of evil to at least adhere to the voices that put them into office.  To the President, it was supposed to usher him to the center; be a wake up call that his chances of re-election is slim, but again, it seems that our politicians think they woke up and ended up in their positions and not voted in.  Which is so maddening because it's the people that placed them in office, we control, well we're supposed to, if and when we'll have elected congressman or senator fill in the blank back in office, but apparently that notion is spit on.

Last week was supposed to be the republicans stand to the president and show to the nation that they are serious about curbing gov't spending and looking to make necessary cuts to bring down our large deficit.   A gov't shut-down should have happened until the democrats either tapped out on what the republicans wanted cut and the nation see those cuts.  Instead, we got the usual doom and gloom from democrats about the cuts being a war on women, the elderly and whatever lame program.  And I think I'm being nice in my description, of doom and gloom.  What was missing from the democrats was the usual, a solution!  If group A wants to do this, group B should come up with something to either debate or counter with.  Both sides clearly see that gov't spending is out of control, it's the cutting part that one side can't seem to do. 

There's a lot of work that needs to be done from the TEA Party's stand point, one, we still have to rid ourselves of weak knee'd so called conservatives.  I get sick and tired of seeing so called conservatives melt down after a hint of racism or any other type of cism is lobbed at them.   They got to go, we need conservatives that know the CONSTITUTION! and by God means to defend it and apply it in our American lives.  Not apply the Government in our lives! but the Constitution!  We have so called republicans, who are conservative around election time, I imagine a good number of them will see the blinking conservative light and realize the conservative light does not blink! it's on all the time! and it's bright!   Those looking for the blinking light should be ushered out with liberal democrats.  And Democrats need an overhaul of their party as well, this ain't the party of Kennedy!  If John F. Kennedy were alive, he'll be considered a republican based on his stance of tax cuts! (I know liberals hate to see that)  Today's democrats are willing to be more intrusive into our lives and continue to spend and tax their way out of, well, nowhere.  It didn't work for Clinton nor did it work for Franklin Roosevelt. 

 Do I even have to bring up Jimmy Carter.

 In 2012, four things need to happen, one, oust Obama, two, oust weak so-called conservatives, three, continue ousting liberals and four, in effort to oust Obama, Conservatives need to find one or more true conservatives who can clearly articulate their ideas, their plans on the direction of our country and lastly be strong enough to not wither at the first protest sign.

RF23-Price for Common Decency, $100k

Did anyone catch the pose and smile event yesterday at Dodger Stadium?  L.A. Mayor Villaraigosa, L.A. Police Chief Charlie Beck, City Councilman Ed Reyes were giving weak stern warnings and admonitions to the two punks, that nearly beat to the death a SF Giant fan on the Dodgers opening night.  All they were missing was failed and so called republican Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger to give his weak one liners from movies past and it would have been a good day.

Stephen A. Smith had it right when he hit the airwaves on 710 ESPN, with all those threats from so called elected leaders, who did they scare?  Not the punks that committed the crime.  Who did it inspire?  No-one!  The only inspiration is the now $100,000 reward for people who saw the incident to call in and give the police the information needed to catch the punks.   Smith also asked why the need to offer a reward, what happened to common decency and being outraged that a man went to Dodger Stadium, with a friend and his child and was nearly beaten to death..The people who witnessed the whole thing, needs $100,000 for common decency.   I have a scenario for those who were there and adopted "No Snitchin."

What if it was you?   a family member?  a friend?

Would you be glad to have a good Samaritan who gave the police all the information needed at the initial onset of the crime or be glad that someone saw the reward and all of sudden said, "Now I remember!"
