Let's put the blame on who is responsible for all this racism-Ronald Reagan

The scumbag who started it all. Can we say Philadelphia, MS and welfare queens.

I'm over 60 and I have never seen such racism

since the sixties. it is just mind blowing how Obama just blew the roof of of the house with his election. It is absolutely crazy and beyond all belief.

3 shots on goal in 90 minutes

If anyone ever wanted to know the reason why soccer doesn't catch on in America this is it. We just don't like to watch masturbating.

Republican humor at it's finest

Earlier it was mentioned that Eugene Scalia and Phil Alito were both at Gibson Dunn. I don't think Alito is there anymore however read these musings. Is there any wonder why there are no conservative funny people. this is pathetic.

Phil Alito is a rising 3L at Duke Law School (i.e., a member of the class of 2012). He received his undergraduate degree from the University of Virginia — after transferring from Colgate, where he wrote funny stuff for The Forum, “a non-partisan publication that seeks to encourage and facilitate the discussion of contemporary legal, political and social issues.” Check out his editor’s bio:

First, God made the heavens and earth. Then came Arby’s, followed shortly by Carl Jr. and other inferior brands of fast food. Fast foward. Homer’s epics, Texas was created, Davy Crockett, king of the wild frontier, died at the Alamo, King Kong attacked Manhattan, and then, in a completely reactionary move, I was conceived.
I was born 9 months and 2 weeks later by a midwife/wolf named Janie Jean, who would prove very influential during my formative years. Shortly after, I became interested in politics and got involved with Gary Condit (not like that). I served as a parking aide to Nancy Pelosi (I won’t even start on her) but was fired when Barbara Boxer came onto me. Eventually, I decided that my teeth needed to be cleaned, so I came to Colgate with a band of gypsies (who I have declared war on and will one day destroy). I decided to join “The Forum” to make friends but obviously that hasn’t worked out. So, soon I will probably find a cow at a nearby farm and ride my way to glory in either LA or at the Calgary Rodeos.

Alas, Phil Alito’s humorous musings have been scrubbed from the publication’s website.

why you know the flop was fake

no one puts there hands up when falling. All people put there hands in front of themselves to protect their face. FAKE FAKE FAKE. I think the refs were in on the fix.

The wimpiest sport of all time

I was listening to Colin Cowherd this morning and he was interviewing Doug McIntyre of ESPN(soccer). If I hear one more time how well conditioned and how tough the game is I am going to puke.
Mcintyre was moaning how tough the game was and in the next match with Portugal that both teams are going to be tired. They have 5 DAYS OFF.

I could possibly understand some fatigue on a match on the third day but i even think you should be fully recovered by the 3rd. day These people are in their twenties.

I always hear how much they run. Bullshit. Watch a game closely. They stand around all the time. When the ball is on one side of the field everyone on the other side of the field are standing around. Midfieleders do run but by large it is short(20 second bursts of speed).

The NBA in the playoffs had a game every other day for 6 weeks. There is hardly any rest. Football plays games all the time 3 days after a Sunday game and talk about taking a pounding. Football is brutal with gigantic sized people causing mayhem.

I am a great believer in conditioning. when I was young i typically played 2 hours of basketball followed by a 5 mile run in 37 minutes with the last 3 being 6 minute miles I followed that with 250 sit ups and 150 push ups.

Even now at 62 I ride 16 miles a day on my bike and I am about to start doing the pushup/situp regimen again.

GIVE ME A BREAK.

Post of the day- Heats Spurs

If Heat fans who leave early donated just one can of food each
we could end world hunger.

I can't take credit for this but I can post it.

Samsung-what a crappy company

http://www.vanityfair.com/business/2014/06/apple-samsung-smartphone-patent-war.print

They took out 10,000 jobs at Pioneer. They did it to everyone. This is pure larceny of multiple companies.

The Great Smartphone War

For three years, Apple and Samsung have clashed on a scale almost unprecedented in business history, their legal war costing more than a billion dollars and spanning four continents. Beginning with the super-secret project that created the iPhone and the late Steve Jobs’s fury when Samsung—an Apple supplier!—brought out a shockingly similar device, Kurt Eichenwald explores the Korean company’s record of patent infringement, among other ruthless business tactics, and explains why Apple might win the battles but still lose the war.

READAPPLE, GOOGLE SETTLE WAGE-FIXING AND HIRING CONSPIRACY CASE

iSPY Samsung chairman Lee Kun-hee, who was convicted of tax evasion in 2008 and pardoned soon after, and the late Apple C.E.O., Steve Jobs.
On August 4, 2010, amid the bustle of downtown Seoul, a small group of executives from Apple Inc. pushed through the revolving door into a blue-tinted, 44-story glass tower, ready to fire the first shot in what would become one of the bloodiest corporate wars in history. The showdown had been brewing since spring, when Samsung launched the Galaxy S, a new entry into the smartphone market. Apple had snagged one early overseas and gave it to the iPhone team at its Cupertino, California, headquarters. The designers studied it with growing disbelief. The Galaxy S, they thought, was pure piracy. The overall appearance of the phone, the screen, the icons, even the box looked the same as the iPhone’s. Patented features such as “rubber-banding,” in which a screen image bounces slightly when a user tries to scroll past the bottom, were identical. Same with “pinch to zoom,” which allows users to manipulate image size by pinching the thumb and forefinger together on the screen. And on and on.
