Obama's Pooch

Hey There!


Voting Present is a Vote for Pelosi

Some new members of the House of Representatives have pledged not to vote for Rep. John Boehner (R-OH)N/A. Instead of casting their vote for someone, they claim they will vote “present.” They need to understand that doing so is a vote for Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-CA)11%. Under House rules, a Speaker is elected based on an absolute majority of votes cast for a person. There can be no plurality. The person elected Speaker must be elected based on an absolute majority of the votes cast. But here is the catch.

Which set me to think, "What would happen if Pelosi was elected Speaker?"  What's the difference between Pelosi and Boner?  What would change?  How would Dems campaign against congress in 2016? 

Carolina CHEATS

Comuppance on hold

RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) — North Carolina's flagship public university is trying to fire a senior professor, accepted the resignation of another faculty member and dismissed an academic counselor for athletes for their roles in the fraud scandal that rocked the school, campus officials said Wednesday.

Steps to terminate University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill philosophy professor and former faculty leader Jeanette Boxill started on Oct. 22, the same day that a scathing report into the cheating scandal was released, campus Chancellor Carol Folt said in a statement. Boxill is appealing Folt's decision, information that was released after a lawsuit by The Associated Press and nine other media organizations.

Blah Blah Blah - this has been going in since 2102 [Full]

In 1985 Maryland  hoops star Len Bias died from a cocaine overdose just days after being the Boston Celtics #1 draft pick.  Nightline did a two night special on it.  Lefty Driesell was fired because he was supposed to know about drug usage.  The P.G County prosecutor tried (and failed) to indict Lefty for complicity.  Athletic Director Dick Dull was fired for not making sure that Driesell was monitoring players whose eligibility was used up.  Football coach Bobby Ross was so fed up with MD Chancellor John Slaughter's nincompoopery in the whole affair that he left for Georgia Tech where he won a National Championship.  After Slaughter's hire of HS coach Bob Wade to replace Lefty (on the recommendation of Georgetown coach John Thompson! who once shoved Driesell during a game) proved disastrous, the school  just escaped the death penalty - I am not making that up- Three years  probation because of Wade's transgressions-the most serious of which was paying for a rental car for former player Rudy Archer to attend school in PG County. Three years.   So you see where I'm going with this rant.

2012 University of North Carolina's football and basketball teams are currently being investigated for an academic cheating scandal that grows deeper and deeper encompassing both Roy Williams and Butch Davis. However, the Tar Heels only want to punish the football team. This is a parody video about this farce. And there's the Carolina Refs that the rest of the ACC, and anyone elsewho plays in NC have had to endure.

Cristiano Ronaldo's Huge Penis

Huge Erection?
The author is evidently a very inexperienced girl, and a virgin.

But wait!
The author's name is Jim Buzinski?




This recent bout with the cold/flu/black plague was largely self inflicted.  We urged daughter to let grandgirl stay with us over the New Year period even though she had a very nasty cough (later diagnosed strep).  And she was sick, especially at night, so MoSup was ready, and me too.  Exacerbating the situation was having new windows put in the day after New Year.  Took six hours and the temps were high 30ºs.  But that's not what I'm wanting to say, which is how fkng stupid am I

How many times have I extolled the virtues of the "Nature's Flu Shot?" Forgot about it completely until yesterday I got the sore throat and could scarcely swallow.  Fortunately I had pineapple juice and was able to make a batch pdq.  Slept about 20 hours yesterday, waking only for the necessaries and drinking a glass of this stuff.  Still have a bit of a sore throat, but much better, thank you. Make note. It works. (Girls will whine and cry that it doesn't taste good, so there is that).
