Why Seattle will win the Super Bowl

Sunday's game is a matchup of the number 1 offense in the NFL against the number 1 defense in the NFL.

It is also a matchup of the number 6 offense against the number 15 defense.

Great defense plus good offense beats great offense plus God-awful defense every time. Especially when the great defense contains the guy who leads the league in interceptions.

Denver's got to beat Marshawn Lynch and Richard Sherman to win the game, and I don't think they can.

Audi SB ad...definitely some funny shit right here

Taking aim at both mediocrity and $600 mutts...

Just announced: the presenter of next year's RNC rebuttal address



This is no ordinary parrot. He has been taught, at tremendous expense, to utter the following speech:

"Repeal Obamacare! Cut Taxes! Impeach! Benghazi! Obama Is A Socialist! Good Night!"

I might have to buy a gun this year

I don't really WANT to, but you know those asshats that are planning to build the "Citadel" separatist compound in North Idaho? Well, the founder, one Christian Kerodin, is calling for the killing of Communists on his blog, which you currently have to be invited to view. His definition of a Communist, printed in the paper that serves the area about to be contaminated by these people:

"Please remember I am being loose with the word 'Communist,' using it as a label for Marxist/Leftist/blah blah/people who believe it is morally acceptable to take anything from one man and give that gain to another via government coercion or brute force."

His December 20 post predicts a war in the US will start by 2016, and it says:

There is going to be killing. Killing is one of those things in our DNA that we do well - especially when it comes to killing other Americans.

On December 24, the same asshole says:

Communism, the greatest evil this planet has ever known, at least in our known history, is about to consolidate its grip on the entire planet. In that flawed move, we will not only kill Communists, but every Communist, and even the idea of Communism.

For whatever reason, you and I have been chosen to be here for this fight, by God, or by mere chance, or by some force we can't comprehend...we are evolving as an animal. We will be forced to embrace every molecule of our barbarism, our savagery, our bloodlust in this fight to kill Communism.

And on January 15, he then said:

There is a bloodbath coming to America, not only in our lifetime, but I will dare say by November 2016, at the latest. Communists have proven many times they have no problem killing tens-of-millions of people ... I have no problem doing the same to them, firstest and mostest.

This crap was shown to the county sheriff, who declared them, "not the rantings of a sane person."

If these boneheads decide to come to North Idaho to hunt liberals, as appears to be their intention, the liberals damn well better be ready.

And I have a sincere question: how seriously are we to take rants about "communists" from a Stalinist like Christian Kerodin?

What Romney reminds me of

Remember the bad late night TV movies where the heroes were walking through the woods in the mid-1960s and came upon a Japanese soldier who still thought World War II was on?

Romney's somewhere between one of those guys, and Marlon Brando in On The Waterfront.

The Marlise Munoz case is George W. Bush's fault

Marlise Munoz is the Texas woman who was kept on life support after brain death against her and her family's will because she was pregnant. The following section of Texas law forced them to do it:

Sec. 166.049. PREGNANT PATIENTS. A person may not withdraw or withhold life-sustaining treatment under this subchapter from a pregnant patient.

Acts 1989, 71st Leg., ch. 678, Sec. 1, eff. Sept. 1, 1989. Renumbered from Sec. 672.019 and amended by Acts 1999, 76th Leg., ch. 450, Sec. 1.03, eff. Sept. 1, 1999.


http://www.statutes.legis.state.tx.us/Docs/HS/htm/HS.166.htm

Notice the effective year: 1999. Shrub was elected governor in 1995 and presided through 2000, which means he signed this.

So...send him the hospital bill.

Keene, N.H., is where I wouldn't want to live right now

There is a "sovereign citizen" group called Free Keene that's currently infesting the local judicial system...they go out and commit fairly minor offenses then spend hours upon hours in court.

For instance, here's a guy who spent over an hour in court arguing the constitutionality of a traffic stop with the cop who pulled him over, joined the Air Force after the stop, and had to be transported back to testify against him.



The same guy spent 30 minutes arguing the jurisdiction of Keene's parking meter ordinance.



Apparently the rest of town is getting sick of their shit; it's costing thousands upon thousands of dollars to deal with their court filings and crap like convening full-scale trials to deal with the kinds of tickets normal people either (1) don't get because they obey the law in the first place, or (2) throw five bucks in an envelope and be done with it if they do get them.

Duck Dynasty fans NOT happy with "Duck Dynasty is Fake!" video

Heads up: locking gas caps don't protect your truck anymore

My paper (the story isn't online yet, sorry) is reporting a minor rash of gas thefts from commercial vans, and these ones are bad: the scumbags crawl under your rig, cut the fuel line and let the gas drain into a can they put under there. Then they come back later to get the full can.
