It means “call into question the validity of threatening divine vengeance,” and it’s the name of my first fantasy hockey team of the year. I come up with some ODD names for my fantasy hockey teams, don’t I? Beats hell out of regular names like “Puck You” or “5-Hole” or “Islanders Suck” or other standard team names as far as I see it.
Viddy of the day: Rush – YYZ
Why Rush? Why NOT Rush?
What gives with the President moving his big jobs speech back a day? There is a debate on September 7th between the top republican candidates. The President asked for this day, but since Boehner the complainer didn’t want the President’s speech happening the same night as, and taking viewers away from it, he argued that the President should do it the next day. The President agreed to the change, not minding letting people see what the Republicans have in store. And what they have in store is something we’ve all seen before. Think about the mess they created during Dubya’s administration, something like that hairy mess.
And frankly I’d like to not have the speech interfere with my football watching, but his speech is more important than the Saints, who WON’T get to the Superbowl this year (Predictions for the entire NFL come next week), playing the Packers, who also won’t make it to the Superbowl (but will get much closer). Frankly, the plan to get millions of people back to work is just a hair more important than watching Aaron Rodgers throw for 3 touchdowns and run for another one in a 42 – 27 romp over the Saints.
It would be harder if it were my New York Giants (who will, unfortunately, have issues getting to .500) playing, but not so much.
In peaceful times words show one’s bravery. In troubled times, too, one knows that by a single word his strength or cowardice can be seen. This single word is the flower of one’s heart. It is not something said simply with one’s mouth. A warrior should not say something fainthearted even casually. He should set his mind to this beforehand. Even in trifling matters the depths of one’s heart can be seen.

Condi calls Dick a Dick:
Former Secretary of State Condoleeza Rice has shot down claims by former Veep Dick Cheney. She called Dick on his bullshit shooting down the claim that Condi “tearfully admitted” that Dubya’s administration should not have apologized about claims made in his 2003 Sotu about Iraq searching for Uranium.
Please. Condi, tearful? Pardon my french, but Dickie boy, she has bigger balls than you ever have, you fat glib fuck. I don’t see her tearful about anything short of a puck to the face requiring 20 stitches, and even then I’m not sure.
Dick also said some crazy crap about her misleading the President about North Korea and their nuclear program. Here… No… Just no. Despite the fact that she is a Republican, and a conservative, I must come to her defense. She is, was, and always will be, a person of great integrity. I can see her doing a great many things when talking to the President, but being purposefully misleading about something as important as North Korea’s nuclear program. Just no… Makes me want to treat him like a bad dog, just rub his face in some shit and say “BAD HUMAN…. NO… BAD HUMAN… DON’T DO THAT AGAIN…”
Something like that.
Click here to read a most excellent Web comic. Click here to read a second one. Don’t click here, because there is no link here, if you did click here, it would do nothing, and that would be stupid. Don’t be stupid, Click here instead, it’s not a comic, but I like it. Now, go use the term “Oppugn Commination” at a random stranger you know it will annoy.
That’s it from here, America. G’night.
