Sports are fixed, Part one – Basketball

Basketball was the first sport I thought was fixed.

So I use to watch the Celtics beat the Lakers all the time along with almost every other team. I thought back then this was fixed.

Then Magic Johnson joined the Lakers and he won five NBA championships. BUT Larry Bird was winning almost every other year. We use to joke about how it was Bird’s turn to win this year and then the next year it was Magic’s turn. We joked it was in the script.

I believe this goes back to the Celtics of the 50s and 60s

The Lakers won one of the three titles contested in the Basketball Association of America which would become the NBA. Then the Lakers won 5 out of the first 10 titles in the NBA. Then suddenly here come the Celtics with this string of impossible victories

From 1959 to 1966 the Celtics won 8 titles in a row, an impossible feat. Not the Yankees or the Montreal Canadiens accomplished this feat. No team in any sports has accomplished this feat. Not only that in 1967 they didn’t make the finals. But in 1968 and 1969 they came back and won 2 more titles making for a string of 10 out of 11 years. AND if you go back to 1957 and 1958 they won in 1957 and lost the finals in 1958. So they were in 10 finals in a row and won 9 out of 10 and 11 out of 13 from 1957 to 1969. Seven of these titles came against the Lakers so out of seven times the Lakers won ZERO. This is bullshit.

I don’t care how good they were there is no way to win this fairly. Over this 13 years they would have had to have one or more bad series. Over 13 years their players got older and slower. Over 13 years some other team would have gotten on a hot streak and won. Over 13 years there would have been injuries to key players. This is bullshit.

Then when they almost killed the NBA suddenly NO ONE could repeat for the next 17 years till the Lakers in 1987 and 1988. Then just as suddenly every damn body was repeating once Magic and Bird revived the NBA and moved it into prime time. Magic’s first title was shown at 11:30 p.m. on a delayed broadcast. Then Detroit repeated in ’89 and ’90, the Bulls in ’91, ’92 and ’93, then the Rockets in ’94 and ’95, then the Bulls again in ’96, ’97, and ’98, then the Lakers again ’00, ’01, and ’02. This is more bullshit.

Too much talent?

When I wrote some of these things in a comments section of an article on the NBA being fixed, someone told me my argument and facts made me wrong. The Celtics had too much talent, NOT!!

There is no way someone could sustain that kind of team and winning over a 13 year period.

Then there is this year’s championship

When the players, coaches and even the wives complain about the game being rigged/fixed then something is up. And what possessed Stephen Curry’s wife to apologize afterward for her comments? Was she threatened by the league or whomever?

So Cleveland a team that never won a title does so by coming from being down 3-1 something that had never been done to win in the finals, come on man. In 2015 they lost to Golden State 4 – 2, now Cleveland wins 4 – 3, this is bullshit. And I don’t care if they have LeBron. He couldn’t win in Miami or Cleveland without stacking the deck. He needed a really good supporting team.

Magic Johnson came out of college and came to the Lakers and won with what was there.

Then there is their stupid draft lottery.

The team with the worst record gets the most giant cards in this drum they tumble and draw out the first team to draft. This system has been under suspicion on numerous occasions. And it is almost never the team with the worst record that gets the first pick. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/NBA_draft_lottery

Every other sport gives the first pick to the team with the worst record but not the NBA. This is another way to rig the system and game.

More rules, more ways to control who wins.

I quit watching after Magic Johnson retired and then got caught up when Miami had a winning streak that got into the 20s in 2013 and ended in Chicago at 27 wins. Isn’t that where Obama is from?

Anyway I started watching and saw all his crap with a free path foul and this arc under the basket and flopping and 3 point flopping. Every time someone goes near a guy shooting a three he flops and the refs call a foul. So if you have more rules you can control the outcome much more easily. Also as in all these sports there are things that can’t be reviewed. This is bullshit. The refs know this and that is another way to control who wins.

Whether covering the point spread or whatever.

People say it can’t be done. Bullshit. All it takes is one ref or a couple players to do the job. Especially the refs. When you watch a game and they are calling fouls ONLY at one end and ONLY on one team and you can’t tell that is fixed then you need help. And if anyone complains they get fined. Most announcers won’t even complain about bad calls because they would probably be fired.

How about when the announcers say “good no call.” This one kills me. And they do this in most team sports. Selective foul or penalty calls. A foul is a foul is a foul and should be called. It also kills me when a guy gets knocked down and it isn’t a foul and then you brush one of the “stars” hands on a shot or layup and there is a foul. This is bullshit.

My next sports are fixed will be on NASCAR. NASCAR and basketball are the two I quit watching because they appear to be fixed.

Damn tired of hearing about Gronkowski and the Patriots

Anyone else tired of hearing about this jackass. He is only famous because he is a New England Patriot and Tom Brady’s favorite receiver apparently. He is nothing more than a tight end much like Aaron Hernandez another New England Patriot. I am so sick of hearing about “Gronk” get over it ESPN and others. Maybe this is why you are losing subscribers. There are 32 teams and each has 53 players for a total of 1696 total players. So find someone else to cover he isn’t that interesting.

New England Patriots the Dallas Cowboys of the 21st Century.

Does anyone remember the Cowboys of the 70s and 80s? They were a bunch of drama queens. They thought the world and NFL revolved around them.

The only difference is the Cowboys didn’t cheat or get caught cheating. But the drama is the same. We have to know everything that is going on in New England whether we want to or not. Every where you turn there is “Gronk”. If they find him at another sporting event we HAVE to know about it and get a shot of him in the stands or where ever.

What is so special about Gronkowski?

So why are the networks so enamored with “Gronk”? He is a tight end just like most tight ends in football. I would guess almost any decent tight end would fit in the Pats system but he wouldn’t have that name and nickname would he? Nope, some other player wouldn’t be called “Gronk”. I for one am damn sick of it.

To cheat or not to cheat.

So is this what sports have come to? Cheating in football, baseball and other sports. Win at all costs? I like to win but not by cheating.

The Pats have been caught at least two times with the filming of another team called Spygate, which is apparently against the rules and now Deflategate. The NFL rules state “No video recording devices of any kind are permitted to be in use in the coaches’ booth, on the field, or in the locker room during the game.” This is two times and it makes you wonder how many times they haven’t been caught.

Here are some things to think about. Bill Belichick was coach of the Cleveland Browns from 1991 – 1995. He had one winning season where they finished second in their division. Then beat New England in the wild card playoff and lost to Pittsburg in the second round of the playoffs. During his tenure in Cleveland he compiled a 36–44 record, leading the team to the playoffs in 1994, his only winning year with the team. In Belichick’s last season in Cleveland the Browns finished 5–11, despite starting 3-1.

So, he comes to the Pats as head coach and suddenly is a genius? How come? Has he cheated all these years in different ways and NOT been caught?

So they were caught in the Deflategate debacle and win the Super Bowl and get to keep the title? Sorry but it should have been vacated and given to Seattle. But no, just like baseball and PEDs/steroids they are letting these records stand and this Super Bowl victory stand. Records and a win they didn’t earn. So apparently cheaters do prosper. The government should step in like they did with baseball and PEDs and strip the title.

So are their wins tainted by the cheating? I think so. Just like Lance Armstrong in cycling and in baseball with the PED/steroids. What all these cheaters did doesn’t matter. It is a slap in the face of those that earned their victory or their records.

New England and cheating go back to the snow plow incident.

The game between Miami and New England on December 12, 1982 the field was covered with snow. The teams had fought for over 45 minutes to a zero to zero tie when, Patriots coach Ron Meyer ordered snowplow operator Mark Henderson to clear a spot on the field specifically for placekicker John Smith. Henderson, a convicted burglar was on a work release program from MCI-Norfolk at the time of the game. So instead of going straight across the field he veered left to create a clear spot for the kicker who made the field goal. The Pats of course won 3 to 0.

The Tuck Rule. WTF

The “Tuck Rule Game” name came from the controversial game-changing play. In the play, Raiders’ cornerback Charles Woodson sacked Tom Brady, which in turn, caused a fumble that was recovered by Raiders’ linebacker Greg Biekert, and, if it was a fumble, would have almost certainly sealed the game. Referees reviewed the play, and eventually determined that even though Brady had halted his passing motion and was attempting to “tuck” the ball into his body, it was an incomplete pass and not a fumble under NFL rules. The original call was overturned, and the ball was given back to the Patriots, who moved the ball into field goal range.

With under a minute remaining in regulation, Patriots’ Adam Vinatieri kicked a 45-yard field goal to tie the game at 13, which sent the game into overtime. In the overtime period, Vinatieri kicked a 23-yard field goal to win the game for the Patriots. Isn’t if funny how that went their way and now they have cheated twice, three times counting the snow plow incident and seemingly have gotten away with it with little or no ramifications?

What happened to Gronk?

I know I got off the subject but the New England Patriots are a sore subject with me. If they are so damn good then why the cheating? If Belichick is such a genius then why the cheating? And please don’t say they are looking for an edge, this isn’t an edge but cheating plain and simple.

Celebrities, what losers

Wow, where do I start? What a bunch of losers. These are people that have no sense of reality. They are people that do nothing but stand in front of a camera and recite lines they memorized that someone else wrote.

Executive Producer, wow wee.

How many times have we seen this? Some actor, usually an unknown, gets a TV series and the second season they have to be the executive producer. Why? Because they are control freaks. Suddenly they think they should run the show and decide the stories lines etc. It is all about control. Then they want to direct, more control and they get to tell the other actors what to do.

I use to watch Psych and suddenly the two stars became producers and then the stories sucked. They weren’t as funny and it wasn’t long before they canceled the show. hmmmmm.

They become famous and their hamburger tastes change.

Suddenly they have to have bottled water from a spring in the Andes Mountains or caviar from a fish that lives in the Mariana trench. These are people that scraped and scrounged to make a living to get where they are and suddenly they have a connoisseur’s palate.

Money does not make you better.

Usually when I criticize actors in the comments section of an article one of these geniuses responds and I get, “they have made 100 million dollars, what have you done?” Sorry but that doesn’t make you a better person or a smarter person or anything else but rich.

Me, I served 20 years in the military. We raised 4 kids, 2 girls 2 boys. The girls didn’t get pregnant, do drugs or anything else stupid. The boys didn’t get anyone pregnant, do drugs or anything else stupid. Now I am not a millionaire but I am rich in other ways. I have common sense and am relatively intelligent. I don’t follow the crowd like your average celebrity that can’t think for themselves. They are almost all liberals and I’ll bet half of them can’t tell you why and if they do it will be some really stupid reason.

They find out they serve no useful purpose or they should find out.

Oh sure they find some charity that doesn’t require too much time or effort to support that makes them look humanitarian or like they are “giving back.” Giving back to whom?

Or when there is some natural disaster and they show up to get some face time. They hold a concert or whatever and donate YOUR money to disaster relief. At least we think they do. Who knows where that money goes. They don’t donate any money of their own. They don’t get their hands dirty and help with the clean up or rebuilding say for a couple weeks. Nope. They just haul ass back to their mansion or where ever.

Reality check.

They have no sense of reality or how Americans live. They probably have no idea what a loaf of bread costs. They probably don’t cook for themselves or shop for themselves or drive themselves. We know they don’t dress themselves. When on the red carpet they are in clothes that are probably borrowed like their jewelry. They have no sense of style or class. They put on anything with a designer name and that could be a burlap sack as long as it says Versace or some other designer name.

Some think they can do the stuff they do in movies like Paul Walker of Fast and Furious fame. He died in a car going 100 mph. He had a daughter at home and does something stupid like this and now she is fatherless. To his credit he wasn’t driving but should have told the driver to slow down. If you look at the pictures of the car there is nothing but a pile of twisted metal you can’t tell it was a car.

Drugs and alcohol and suicide.

How many don’t have the brains NOT to do drugs or become alcoholics. I assume because they are weak individuals and can’t say no. Or they are looking for a thrill and gets a hold of you and won’t let go. Then people like to say it is a disease. Sorry, there is no bug that gives you a drug habit or alcoholism.

Look at Whitney Houston, my favorite singer at the time, was apparently a party animal till it killed her and again left her daughter without her mother and now he daughter is dead herself.

Heath Ledger died from a drug overdose of prescription drugs. He left behind a fatherless daughter. There are many others.

Robin Williams committed suicide. David Carradine died of asphyxiation in some sex device alone in his room. Apparently he was a pervert of some kind.

So my point here is should you be listening to these kinds of people on issues that matter, like politics, religion, raising your kids etc. etc.

Facelifts and Botox

On top of everything else I mentioned they can’t grow old gracefully, at least most of them. Not sure who they think they are fooling but they are not. When you are 75 years old like Raquel Welch and don’t have a wrinkle, hello. Or 70 years old like Jaclyn Smith and I use to think she was beautiful and she still is to some extent but get real.

Then there was Joan Rivers that made a joke of it and in the end it killed her having too many surgeries apparently along with the doctor’s screw ups.

So, this just shows you most of them have no sense of reality. I know that show business is part of the problem but when you are 70 or 75 and a facelift gets you a job then it might be time to quit. What does this say about their sense of self worth? Do they dislike themselves or how they look this much? You know when people tell me I don’t look my age it makes me feel good because I haven’t had a facelift or Botox.

The Media.

I just want to tell these people in the media they are morons when they say stuff like, “you won’t believe what so and so looks like.” Or, “so and so lights up the red carpet.” Are they for real? Don’t they know they have had work done? It is like the baseball players that cheated and now they talk about how great a player they were, IT DOESN’T COUNT, you cheated. A facelift and Botox is cheating.

No better than you or I.

These people are no better than you or I am. Just because they have fans, make movies or appear on television doesn’t make them smarter or better. They put their pants on the same way you do, one leg at a time. Almost anyone could do what they do if a person spent the time they have doing it. It is not rocket science. They don’t find a cure for cancer or any other disease. They don’t bring world peace or negotiate an arms treaty or any thing else. They are pretty much useless and I think they know that and that is why some end up as they do, broke, on drugs, committing suicide, murdering someone etc. etc.

So don’t applaud them or praise them. They need constant affirmation. They need to be told how great they are, how beautiful they are and how talented. Now I realize there are no absolutes and not all of them are this way. I am sure some have been normal, down to earth people but not very many I would think.

Cooking hints

I hope this isn’t too far out there. I just decided to add this category to my list. Why? Because I love to eat and cook and have been cooking all my life through the single life, two wives and four kids. I started first out of survival then because I am good at it and could multi-task before they called it multi-tasking. My mother use to say I should open a restaurant but that is way too much work. It takes a lot of time to own a business, do the cooking, balance the books, hire people ya da ya da ya da.

The beginning.

I didn’t start out as a good cook and I assume most people are the same. It took thyme and seasoning (joke) to be where and what I am today. Cooking is easy and if you have a little imagination you can make anything. When I started I wasn’t too bad but not great either. I didn’t burn anything that I remember. I thought back then I was pretty good but looking back I was feeling my way along.

Make it your own.

Most recipes you can make your own. If you don’t like something substitute. Like I don’t like Thyme so most of the time I substitute basil or even oregano. Most important is garlic. I add it to most recipes even if it is not in the recipe, cookies, cakes (just kidding). A lot of recipes don’t have many spices so as I copy it I can add it to the recipe. I make changes while putting it down on paper. Now, if you aren’t that experienced don’t feel bad. You will get the feel for it the more you cook. Try to think of what tastes good in most foods like garlic etc. If you don’t like cooking that may be a problem.

Don’t be afraid.

It is food and not life or death unless you are starving, lol. Have fun with it. Like I said if you have a better idea, try it instead of what the recipe says. Like I made these lemon cookies that suggested you take lemon drop candy and put it in a food processor and grind them up. What a racket. Then when you made the cookies for some reason they went flat. They were suppose to be ball shaped. What I tried, which saved my food processor and kept the balls of cookies in ball shape was dry lemonade drink mix. It worked perfect as I said they stayed in balls and you had to roll the balls in the ground up candy, which again I replaced with the mix too. People on the recipe website said the same thing, they went flat so I left a message and hoped it helped some people.

Cooking websites.

I love these. One of my favorites is myrecipes.com. I like pictures with my recipes and this was one of the first to have pictures and decent size pictures. I use to go to different sites and would email them that I wouldn’t use their recipes if they didn’t have a picture. Now it seems most have pictures and good pictures. Almost every cooking product has a website and they include recipes to get you to use their products. The websites are usually on the package.

Your cookbooks.

I use these three ring binders that you can get a WalMart and other stores. They are the size of a half sheet of paper. I landscape my paper on the computer and make it two columns. I put the name of the recipe, the website under it, the prep time and the cooking time. Then a picture followed by the ingredients and directions. A lot of times I can edit it and get it on one side of the paper and a second recipe on the other side of the same side of the paper. Then fold it in half, punch holes and add it to your notebook. I have about 7 or 8 or these with different categories. Publix here in Florida has recipes that are that size and are on nice shiny cards and they even sell binders to hold them. They fit in my notebooks perfectly.

Cooking shows.

I use to love Food Network and kept it on my TV all day and left the TV on all day and would listen. Then they started doing reality shows, got younger “chefs”, seemed to get some what pretentious like one of my favorites Michael Chiarello with his gray salt, brown eggs etc. They got rid of Emeril, Mario Batali and others. They all seemed to use the same spices, balsamic vinegar etc. They would put everything in the recipe but the proverbial kitchen sink.  To put it bluntly it sucked.

Then I just get tired of them trying to tell you what the dish tastes like. “This is crunchy on the outside tender on the inside, I can taste the basil blah blah blah.” Once in an cooked it is sometimes hard to distinguish flavors but because they know what is in there they claim they can taste it. Just like wine tasting. When someone says it tastes “oaky.” Just what does oak taste like and they say that because they know it was in oak barrels, hello. Also I have heard it tastes earthy. Does that mean it tastes like dirt?

I really dislike Guy Fieri whose last name is Ferry. This middle aged  man with the bleached spiked hair that thinks he is so cool, he is NOT. Time to grow up Guy. To prove it he drives a ’68 or ’69 Camaro, no style. So I don’t watch anymore.

God, the Bible, Heaven, Hell and Satan.

Let me state, there is a God, heaven, hell and Satan. How do I know? The Bible tells me it is so.

I am going to give you some of your lame arguments against it and the facts as stated in the Bible.

2000 years in the making.

Yes it has been written by many people over 2000 years and it discloses that. Yes it has been translated over those same 2000 years and these are some of the reasons people use to dismiss the Bible. The fact is that people dismiss it because then they don’t have to believe it is from God and that there is a God.

The Gutenberg Bible

This was the first book printed in mass on a movable type printing press, the Gutenberg Bible. It is estimated that 5 billion Bibles have been sold with sales of 100 million a year. So what does that tell you? It tells me this was the most important book and that it needed to be printed first. 49 copies have survived to present day though only 21 are complete. So if it is not fact why have so many people over the centuries bought it and read it and more importantly BELIEVED it?

The stories and people are real.

We know Jesus, Pontius Pilate, Pharaoh and others in the Bible were real people and that Jesus was crucified. This is history even if you don’t believe in God. The problem here for non-believers is you have everything to lose and nothing to gain by not believing. If there is a God and you don’t believe and reject God you will go to hell for all eternity and it is damn hot there. Believers have nothing to lose by believing that there is a God and everything to gain. Everlasting life and eternity with God. You want eternal life, to live forever, well here it is. All you have to do is believe and accept Jesus as your Lord and savior.

Evolution and the Big Bang.

It is just beyond logic to believe in the Big Bang and Evolution a theory they say they can prove but how?

The scientists claim that all the universe and everything in it came from NOTHING in the Big Bang. Even a kindergartener can tell you that you can’t make something from nothing but because some scientists said it most people believe it. Oh sure they have tests and experiments and they read tea leaves but how do you prove something that happened before any life existed. You can’t. Over the centuries science is always revising or rewriting their theories or ideas or “facts” but the Bible never changes. Sure there have been slight variations but the ideas and stories are the same down through the centuries.

If the Big Bang created something from nothing and they can prove it then how about making some more petroleum or water or air or how about a damn Ferrari for me? Make anything. A coke or pepsi and make the can or bottle too while you are at it from nothing.

Then there is evolution. OMG. If you believe this fairy tale then you need help. That this too, like the Big Bang, just happened. That everything came from the primordial ooze. Come on man!! They can’t prove it. They tell you they can because they can inundate you with scientific jargon. They told us we evolved from apes. Well then how come there are still apes? How come there isn’t something in between that hasn’t evolved all the way like a half man half ape etc. How come apes and other animals can’t talk? Why are we the only species to talk? How come there aren’t other species that are evolved and the same species that hasn’t finished evolving? How come since this theory of evolution there isn’t something out there still evolving?

How do they evolve? Do they just decide to evolve? Say a bird needed wings to fly so it just decided to develop wings? Or like the giraffe that had a short neck and couldn’t reach its food so it evolved with a long neck? And what does it do while waiting for evolution to take place? It dies and there goes the species so how did it evolve.

The human body is enough to prove that evolution didn’t just happen. All the functions of the body, the regeneration, reproduction, digestion, the circulatory system, eyes, heart, your skin etc. all just happened. The Bible tells you how things, people and animals came about, through God. What we have is the THEORY of evolution and Darwin’s THEORY of natural selection. This still doesn’t explain how we walked, talked, see etc. etc. I know they say it does but when will they change that because they have proof of something else?

I like carbon dating myself. This is a procedure scientists came up with to determine the age of something and then they tell us how it works. When will they tell us they made a mistake and are wrong. Are they lying to us like they have in the past to prove themselves and their theories right? Everyone lies today. Oops they misspoke, yeah right!!

Then there are the dinosaurs and how they were all destroyed by an asteroid that impacted the earth. AND they can’t even agree on that. Whether it cooled the earth or heated it up. So this asteroid supposedly hit the earth and killed all the dinosaurs on the whole earth, on all sides of the earth but wasn’t big enough to destroy the earth? Come on man? The scientists can always come up with an excuse or story or theory as to why something happened.

So we have a book that tells you how everything came to be but it is easier to make up stories/theories and dismiss the Bible. And more importantly dismiss God.

As far as Hell and Satan that too is in the Bible. Apparently there are no theories on this but we do have ghost hunters and ghostbusters, kidding. I know there are a lot of people that don’t believe in one or both but isn’t there always evil when there is good?

I am not a scientist or genius I am just a guy with questions, logic and common sense, I hope. Like most people I have had science in school and college. I also have read the Bible several times from cover to cover. My problem is that the people that believe in evolution and the big bang are zealots. They mock you and call you stupid or like a talk show host that tells you that you are abusing your kids because you don’t teach them these theories.

They have forced religion out of the public square, schools and government. Why? It must be because it is true otherwise they wouldn’t be afraid of it. Their theories would stand up to the test and to scrutiny and comparison of and to religious principles. What are they afraid of? Why can’t you have both and let people and humanity decide what is true? Like a country with a dictator they cut off communication with the outside world because they only want one message going to the people. They want the people to hear the “truth” the dictator’s “truth.”

Hollywood Has NO imagination.

My first example of Hollywood having no imagination is Bond, James Bond. In 2014 it was the 50th anniversary of the James Bond franchise and what did the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences do? They showed a few clips from movies and had Shirley Bassey sing Goldfinger, boooorrrring. When they could have had ALL the James Bond actors who were and are still alive. How damn cool would that have been? If they wanted to go further they could have had a lot if not all the Bond girls too. But no, that would have taken time, money and imagination.

The Kings of Remakes.

I think their problem is they have no sense of reality along with no imagination. They have no life experience. These writers drank their way through college, if they even went to college and don’t know crap or what they know is from television. Why? Because they continue to do the same stupid crap in movies and TV.

The body falling on a car. Cars getting t-boned.

These are a couple examples of no imagination. The body falling from a building and hits the car exactly in the middle of the roof, on its back and never misses. To start with a body falling from a building would have to glide to this car since most curbs are six, eight or even ten feet from the buildings, maybe more. If a body falls it is going to fall straight down for the most part not glide to this car. Also what about any street signs or trees planted in the sidewalk? I just watched Arrow and this guy goes out the window and there is only ONE car on the street about 20 stories below and he hits it. He doesn’t glance off it or land on the trunk or hood or even the sidewalk. Again exactly in the center of the roof.

The car getting t-boned by a truck or another car. This was ok the first time but now it is old. You can tell when it is coming by the way they shoot the scene across the driver showing the passenger and the side window. Time to get something new.

More sequels than original movies.

2016 is a banner year for sequels and they are planning more. Lets start with Independence Day – Resurgence, Ghostbusters, Ice Age, Star Trek: Beyond, Jason Bourne, Pete’s Dragon, Ben–Hur, Mechanic-Resurrection , When the Bough Breaks, Blair Witch, The Magnificent 7, Jack Reacher – Never Go Back, Band Santa 2, Joe Dirt, Anchorman and there are more. Some of the time between sequels is ridiculous.

They have done this through the years and I get that making one Star Trek, Jack Reacher, Jason Bourne, Mission Impossible etc after another because it made money is OK. But when they are so desperate they have to screw with classics like The Magnificent 7 or Ben-Hur or the Mummy 1932, 1999 and now 2017, that is going too far. There is no way they are going to be better especially Ben-Hur when they are giving you cartoon (computerized scenery etc.) backgrounds and sets. When the chariot race is computerized then it sucks and is just about money.

Then there are classics like Joe Dirt (2001) and the sequel Joe Dirt 2 how imaginative (2015). The first made 13 million. Now is that worth a sequel? How about Galaxy Quest? That was 1999 and they were going to do a remake 16 years later till Alan Rickman died. They call this a cult classic so why 16 or 17 years to do a sequel? It made a whole 90 million with a 45 million dollar budget so it made 45 million. The top movies are in the hundreds of millions and even a billion dollars. So why a sequel for a movie that made 13 or 45 million?

Now making movies from TV programs and TV programs from movies

Recently they made the Lone Ranger which bombed I think because they do a remake and changed it too much. People that know the Lone Ranger expect to see the Lone Ranger. This one was dressed like Bret Maverick with the long black coat. And then there was Johnny Depp who looked like Jack Sparrow with a bird on his head. And then when it flopped the actors blamed the studio for not enough advertising. And who the hell is Armie Hammer? Actually I know he is the great grandson of  Armand Hammer that ran Occidental Petroleum. And now he is in another movie made from TV, The Man From U.N.C.L.E.

This season they made Rush Hour for TV. It sucked and it didn’t last. Of course most TV shows suck. They copy the hits till they have to make something new, like these reality shows. I just don’t understand why people want to watch someone else on their couch talking about their life which isn’t anymore interesting than yours. Of course you do know they tell them what to do and say and is probably scripted to some extent. The producers especially want drama and conflict.

I have come to the conclusion that Hollywood is full of wannabes actors, directors etc. and that is why people like Spielberg, Bruckheimer, De Palma, Cruise, Eastwood and a few others look like geniuses and probably are geniuses.

Divide and Conquer By Spreading Hate -The Democrats

Democrats the Party of Hate

This is what the Democrats do to us. When is the last time you heard a Democrat talk about bringing us together. I can’t remember either. Why do you think they continue to point out our differences instead of us being Americans. No, it is African Americans, Italian Americans, Jewish Americans, Native Americans etc.

If they break us down into smaller groups then we are easy to handle or control. This too is why they want you to speak a foreign language. They want you separated and isolated from everyone else so they can give you the “right” message and information which is hate. They are truly the Party of Hate.

151 Years Later and They Are Still Talking Slavery. Why?

Why do you think they keep talking about slavery to the blacks in this country. To spread the hate and keep it going even though slavery was ended 151 years ago and doesn’t affect anyone today. Of course there are people that say it did and has but they are playing the race card and the victim card. This is bullshit. Get over it. Why do you thing Michelle Obama talked about slaves building the White House at the Democratic convention. More hate to spread before leaving office. Why do you think they keep saying the Republican party is run by old white men. More hate to spread. Lets get real when a community is largely black in some cities they vote for a black candidate even if they are no good.

It was the Democrats that didn’t want the slaves free or to be able to vote. It was a white Republican president, Lincoln who fought for their freedom and got the Emancipation Proclamation passed. Jefferson Davis, the president of the Confederacy, was a Democrat so that Confederate flag you think is racist is yours Democrats. Try reading this.

 Liberalism or How to Turn Good Men into Whiners, Weenies and Wimps

The (lame stream) media is guilty of spreading the hate too.

The liberal media are quick to label a killing of a black person by a white person a hate crime but when it is a black killing a white person there isn’t a peep. Just like when cops are killed by blacks there isn’t a mention of a hate crime. They won’t even mention the perpetrator is black.

How about that welfare?

This was a real boon to blacks. Kept them dependent, pregnant and jobless. This by the way was a Democratic program.

Hillary and the Top 1%

Who do you think she is talking about? She is talking about the rich and Wall Street. But in reality she should be talking about herself and Bill Clinton and all those celebrities she and Obama are so fond of when it comes to campaign contributions. They too are the top 1% but you are not suppose to think about that. You are suppose to hate the rich not the elitists like the Democrats and Hillary and Obama and others. they want you to hate insurance companies, doctors, CEOs, Wall Street, the wrong companies (they decide who is right and wrong). In her convention speech she mentioned numerous times the top 1% getting all the new money. Well, they make the investments and reap the rewards. Is that so hard to figure out? She wants to take from the top 1% and give it to those that won’t work and that didn’t earn it.

Thomas Jefferson said,

“The democracy will cease to exist when you take away from those who are willing to work and give to those who would not.”

Saul Alinsky tactics.

Never waste a good crisis. And if there isn’t one then they create one. The Democrats criticized the Tea Party and accused them of acts they didn’t commit but it is ok for Black Lives Matter to chant for someone to kill police. Police kill some criminal who happens to be black and they riot and protest and act pissed off. BUT, thousands of blacks are killed by other blacks and they apparently could care less. It is all a matter of hate.

Then we find out protesters were paid to protest and riot in Ferguson and other places. Former U.S. Rep. Allen B. West noted on his website, “Instead of being thankful for getting off the unemployment line for a few weeks and having a little fun protesting, the paid rioters who tore up Ferguson, MO, are protesting again.

A little fun protesting? This is a black man and former congressman, this is bullshit. This is a sick man to even think this not to mention put it on his website. If a white man had said this about white protesters being paid to riot the damn world would have come to an end.

Read this how Saul Alinsky is Hillary’s idol and her mentor. Read how Alinsky’s book Rules for Radicals that has a dedication to Satan. He praises Satan as the first radical. The Bible says in the end times Satan will come from a political figure. Not necessarily a man?

Hollywood and the hate.

To further prove my point Debra Messing attacked Blake Shelton;“Omg. How? @gwenstefani please talk to your man to not vote for the person who will strip you of your rights,” Messing wrote in a tweet she has since deleted. Again accusing Trump or the Republicans of stripping their rights when it is Obama doing that very thing.

These people in Hollywood are such zealots it is sickening. They vote for Democrats no matter who is running and yet she accuses Trump of things he hasn’t done but Obama has, i.e. Obamacare. No right to NOT participate.

Then there is George Clooney another great mind of the 21st century. Clooney said “He’s just an opportunist,” the actor said. “Now he’s a fascist; a xenophobic fascist.” How long did it take him to come up with that big word. Surely not all by himself. Probably his publicist. Clooney will be xenophobic when the next terrorist attack comes from the people Obama and the Democrats have allowed to enter this country unchecked. This is the same George Clooney that thought it would be a good idea to remake an old Rat Pack movie, Ocean’s 11. Then to really dazzle us he made Ocean’s 12 and 13. Some genius, some talent, some imagination, NOT!!

Then there is this idiot from Green Day with a middle school mentality. He says about Trump; “He just said, ‘You have no options and I’m the only one, and I’m going to take care of it myself.’ I mean, that’s fucking Hitler, man!” Billie Joe Armstrong proclaimed, likely referring to Trump’s convention speech. Unlike Obama who took care of NOTHING for 8 years. A brilliant rocker named Billie Joe, one of the great minds of our time. NOT!!

“I don’t even know how else to explain it,” he continued. “I wish I were over-exaggerating. And sometimes maybe I do over-exaggerate with Bush. But with Trump, I just can’t wait ’til he’s gone.” These are the words of a pathetic loser, a hate monger. To actually compare an American business man to Hitler or compare anyone to Hitler the most vile human being in history is disgusting.

The Nazis and Hitler did exactly what Billie Joe is doing, accusing your enemies of things they didn’t do. He would probably turn in his parents and grandparents much like the Brown shirts or the youth league.

It is funny that this Billie Joe is so educated the only adjective he can come up with is the f-word. It is also funny these liberal Democrats have to call people names. They apparently can’t make a point but can sure call you a name or make one up i.e. homophobia, the funniest thing I ever heard. I guess it is a fear of people since we are all homo sapiens?

This is not typical or average political discourse, this is HATE SPEECH.

Comes to you from ihatebullshit.com

Politics and politicians suck.

Most politicians never held a real job.

Most of our elected officials never held a real job or balanced a household budget. It is little wonder they can’t balance the countries budget. They are morons that special interest groups get elected to do their bidding. They have no idea how Americans are struggling making ends meet and they don’t really care. They only care about YOU at election time. Then they come out to meet you and pretend to listen to you and be interested in what you have to say. They are not interested make no mistake about that.

Approval rating sucks and the congress could care less.

Their approval rating continues to decline and again it doesn’t matter which party is in control they all do a lousy job. They don’t care what you think because they think you are dumb and they are right. They have a reelection rate of over 90%. Now does that make sense when their approval rating is somewhere around 11%. What the hell are the American voters thinking? Or are they thinking? Not no but hell no.

People vote for a name not their record or anything else. Why else would Ted Kennedy got reelected for years after killing his secretary, Mary Jo Kopechne in a supposed car accident. He was able to get his fat ass out but left her to die and then didn’t report it till the next day.

Here in Florida I am represented by Gus Bilirakis. I have had several representatives over the years and old Gus and his staff ignore me when emailing him. His Chief of Staff here in Wesley Chapel tells me they didn’t get my emails. I also stopped receiving their newsletters for some reason, hmmmmm. It is also odd that I never had any trouble getting in touch with congresswoman Ginny Brown Waite or congressman Richard Nugent. So I sent a letter to Washington and got a response from this Chief of Staff, Elizabeth Hittos. We sent a couple of emails back and forth and she said she would check into some issues and I NEVER heard from her again. So, I sent another letter to Washington and NO DAMN answer this time. I guess they are too busy to send and answer to the people they represent. THEIR DAMN BOSSES. WE THE PEOPLE.

To prove my point about voting for a name Gus’ daddy was a congressman from 1983 till 2007 when Gus ran and took over. WTF. People probably saw the name Bilirakis and voted for his damn son without knowing the difference.

They also changed the districts in 2007 after the election and told no one, at least not me. Don’t you think this should be a requirement? That they redistrict and your representative changes and they should tell you?

Recently I wrote to my Supervisor of Elections in Pasco County. He called me ignorant and that I was making baseless accusations. He in no way told me why they were baseless. So it is ok for your local politician to call you ignorant.

Again they don’t give a damn with a 90% reelection rate. Some people want term limits and some offices and officials across the country have term limits but not these liars and thieves in the U.S. Congress. Like a gun, the only way to get congress out of their hands is to pry if from their cold dead hands.

Divide and conquer.

Politicians, no matter what party, are all about divide and conquer. There are over 300 million Americans (with guns) and they can’t possibly control us. After all they can’t control small mobs that riot in these cities.

This is why they want gun control and it’s not going to happen. The founding fathers gave us this to protect us from the tyranny of our own government. This is why Russia can control millions and China billions because they have NO GUNS. I spent years in the military and every time I reenlisted I took pretty much the same oath congress and our president takes.

I, (NAME), do solemnly swear that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic. They are domestic enemies.

We have the perfect form of government.

We have the perfect form of government run by a bunch of liars, thieves, adulterers, perverts and in some cases murderers. What we need is to blow the damn place up and start over. Or we need to march on Washington and physically throw their asses out. As I said there are over 300 million Americans. If 1% marched on Washington that would be over 3 million people and we wouldn’t even have to be armed, but we could be. So if you multiply that out, every percent is another 3 million plus Americans with 10% equaling over 30 million Americans. We would fill the streets and they couldn’t do a damn thing. They want to see real power then we could show it to them.

No military and no cops would be enough.

There are only about 500,000 military and they are scattered around the world. There probably aren’t that many cops in all the states combined and they certainly aren’t going to leave home to stop the people. So, who would stop the 3 million or more Americans? NO ONE. We could walk right into the capital building and throw their asses out physically. Then start over without special interests or lobbyists or any other outside forces.

Did you know Obama made a directive to use military force against Americans in 2010, that’s one year after taking office. Why did he think he would need this option? They think they can stop us when we elected these assholes and now he puts out a directive to attack us, Americans. Did congress oppose this? Did your congressman tell you this?

 

Directive No. 3025.18, “Defense Support of Civil Authorities,” was issued Dec. 29, 2010, and states that U.S. commanders “are provided emergency authority under this directive.”

“Federal military forces shall not be used to quell civil disturbances unless specifically authorized by the president in accordance with applicable law or permitted under emergency authority,” the directive states.

“In these circumstances, those federal military commanders have the authority, in extraordinary emergency circumstances where prior authorization by the president is impossible and duly constituted local authorities are unable to control the situation, to engage temporarily in activities that are necessary to quell large-scale, unexpected civil disturbances” under two conditions.

The conditions include military support needed “to prevent significant loss of life or wanton destruction of property and are necessary to restore governmental function and public order.” A second use is when federal, state and local authorities “are unable or decline to provide adequate protection for federal property or federal governmental functions.”

“Federal action, including the use of federal military forces, is authorized when necessary to protect the federal property or functions,” the directive states.

Military assistance can include loans of arms, ammunition, vessels and aircraft. The directive states clearly that it is for engaging civilians during times of unrest…

You want term limits, do what I do, I DON’T VOTE FOR ANY INCUMBENT unless he has dazzled me and that won’t happen because they don’t do a damn thing.

Baseball is boring and slow by nature.

Baseball is boring, no doubt about it. That is the nature of the game. They are attempting to speed it up but to no avail.

Suggestions for speeding up the game.

Eliminate batting gloves.

This is the most ridiculous thing in sports. Almost all players wear them and apparently they don’t work or aren’t worth a damn because every player pulls on those Velcro tabs between every damn pitch it is boring and it is absurd. Velcro doesn’t move. This is just a “routine” or habit. Not only that how did players in the past get along without gloves? Then they have to use pine tar or other things to hold on to the bat too. Does that make any sense to anyone?

Eliminating batting gloves would eliminate one part of their routines. Strike outs have been up every year the last few years. So then why are these players going through all these gyrations and routines before batting? Why are they holding up their bat and staring at it? Apparently NONE of this works and it is boring. Apparently NONE of this helps you hit the ball or raise your batting average.

Enforce the no stepping out rule.

They made a rule that batters can’t step out of the batter’s box unless they foul off a pitch/ball. So enforce it. This year, 2016, batters are still doing the same crap. Again how did players in the past get along without all the stepping out and looking at the bat and pulling those Velcro tabs. This does not make you a better player or hitter. Why? Because hitters strike out more today than they ever have in the past.

Eliminate players/batters calling time out for NO REASON.

They do this to disrupt the pitcher, to play a game. My suggestion is for the pitcher to be ready to pitch and as soon as he puts both feet in, set or not, fire that pitch. I don’t know about other fans but this pisses me off. There are enough delays without calling time out. The umpire doesn’t have to grant time out but almost always does. It is the rare exception that he doesn’t call time out.

Also they spend time in the on deck circle getting ready to bat. Then when it is their turn they walk up to the batter’s box and start taking practice swings before stepping into the batter’s box. This is bullshit. That is what the on deck circle is for, to prepare to bat.

No walking allowed.

I know this sounds ridiculous but these players today walk everywhere. They get thrown out they WALK off the field. They strike out they WALK off the field. They walk back to the batter’s box after hitting a foul ball and running to first base. They come up to bat they STROLL to the batters box, not that they have to run but walk faster. Players use to hustle. They never walked to the dugout after making an out. They never use to walk off the field when an inning was over. They didn’t walk back to their positions when coming back on the field or after running to make an out. Once Derek Jeter and Don Mattingly were on the field and Derek said something like, lets walk over to the dugout, Mattingly said lets run you never know who is watching.

Too much thinking and not enough hitting.

I think if they actually speed up the game the players will have less time to think and just play and react. All the great hitters and players sure didn’t take the time these clowns do and yet hit better, played better and were greater. And they sure didn’t need PEDs or steroids.

Not much else to do to speed it up.

There is not much else to possibly do to speed the game up. It is by nature a slow game. But as I stated most of the delays are players going through their “routines.” One player even said he didn’t care how much or how many times he gets fined, he wasn’t changing his routine. The problem is they do this junk and they sure aren’t as good as Joe DiMaggio, Ted Williams or almost any other great hitter that didn’t need a “routine”. Back in those days the pitcher would have put one under your chin for these antics.

Minor league games.

I go to Tampa  Yankee games and they don’t mess around here. The games move right along. The coaches only have so much time to talk to the pitcher, the pitcher has a clock to throw his pitch and so on. Somewhere between here and the big leagues the players start this crap of stepping out of the batter’s box, pulling those damn Velcro tabs, staring at the bat etc. etc. etc. I can go to a game that starts at 7:00 p.m. and be out around 9:00 p.m. I am not sure what the rush is to speed up the game but I am sick of watching batters and pitchers walking around and doing all the routines. I want action.

The Morons in Hollywood and Free Speech.

To start with most of these people have no education and if they do it is a degree they earned and never used. They have no life experience. No sense of reality. They live in a bubble and then give YOU their opinion on such things as politics.

Useless education.

So lately we have the likes of Ashley Judd going to school for a PHD. For what? Does this make her a better actor? An old joke goes like this about college degrees; A BS (bachelor of science) stands for bullshit. MS (master of science) More of the Same and lastly a PHD (doctor of philosophy) or in reality, Piled Higher and Deeper. Nothing wrong with education but what does an actress need with a degree in philosophy?

Then there is Joy Behar. She has a degree in English education, whoopee. Behar earned a BA in sociology from Queens College in 1964 and a MA in English education from the State University of New York at Stony Brook in 1966. From the late 1960s to the early 1970s, she taught English at Lindenhurst Senior High School in Lindenhurst, New York. So she earned her degree 50 years ago and used it 40 or more years ago. So if you watch her she acts superior and elitist while spreading the hate and lies. This is what liberals are all about.

No thinking for yourself or having an opinion other than the group opinion.

We also have Debra Messing ostracizing Blake Shelton for not being part of the collective, the Borg, you should be assimilated. In other words not think for yourself but like the high school clique Hollywood has become. They don’t know anything but want to tell you everything like how to raise your kids or who to vote for or that you should accept the perversion of being gay. I’ll get to that later.

Antonio Sabato Jr. claims that he’s been bullied endlessly in the days following his appearance at the Republican National Convention in Cleveland. Not only online, but by Hollywood directors who have blacklisted him. On July 18, the actor opened the RNC in Cleveland with a speech about why he’s supporting Donald Trump, calling him the “unity” candidate, who would secure borders and protect citizens. Sabato Jr. reached out to Variety to share what he says happened next.

Antonio Sabato Jr.: I think this country allows you freedom of speech. Anybody should be allowed to say whatever they want. When you’re in my business, you can’t talk about [conservative] politics. You just can’t. You’re attacked viciously in a way that I’ve never been attacked before.

On Twitter, there’s been name calling, and celebrities attacking me. That’s fine. I see it, but I don’t read it. I block them and delete them and move on. There’s so much negativity you can be taken into that. But I’ve also heard from celebrities: “If he can do it, I want to speak my mind too.” They are fed up with the way this country has been running and by all these lies. From Variety.

The same happened with Stacey Dash for supporting Romney, hate.

“Clueless” star Stacey Dash recently tweeted her support for Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney, accompanied by a patriotic swimsuit picture of herself.

But now her political viewpoint has become the subject of online attacks, with many expressing crude distaste that she isn’t endorsing President Obama – and race has become a key motivator behind the digital abuse.

“You’re an unemployed black woman endorsing Mitt Romney. You’re voting against yourself thrice. You poor beautiful idiot,” one Twitter user wrote, while @Black Voice wrote, “Stacey Dash had a perm since birth. I knew I couldn’t trust her.. lol.”

Others accused the actress of “voting for white supremacy,” claiming she “is white with a dark tan,” and calling Dash a slew of offensive names. Look how they made this about race. It is about hate and the Democrats and Hollywood are the Party of Hate and lets not forget slavery.

Several other Obama supporters even went as far as to encourage “the old hag” to “kill herself.” One suicide encourager is listed as a doctor and politically active Democrat in Washington D.C., and although he reportedly has deleted the inflammatory “kill yourself” tweet, it was captured by social media news site, Twitchy.com. Who was this man and do you want him as your doctor. This goes beyond politics, this is hate. Again from the Party of Hate, the Democrats.

But Dash seems to be taking the backlash in stride.

“My humble opinion… EVERYONE is entitled to one,” she tweeted in response.

But the 46-year-old’s plug for Romney attracted plenty of applause, too.

“Thank you for being willing to think for yourself despite what your haters have to say,” tweeted one user, while another noted, “You can NEVER, EVER (did I say never?) NEVER leave the Dem party if you r Black. Once you do, the name calling begins.” From Fox News Entertainment, Foxnews.com and Hollie McKay.

They are nothing more than religious zealots and that is why they attack Christians and Republicans. It is not about politics, it is about hate and division and destroying this country. If they cared about America they would be talking unity no matter who our President. It is divide and conquer.

Their religion being the Democratic party. They are much like the fanatical Muslims only don’t have the guts to go all the way and strap a bomb to themselves. Listen to their radical ideas. Listen to them when they say they will leave this country if Trump wins. Not one will leave.

Democrats, the Party of Hate and Slavery.

So it was a white Republican, Abraham Lincoln, that led the fight to free the slaves. It was the white Democrats that didn’t want the slaves free or to be able to vote. The blacks have been lied to so long they don’t know what is right or wrong. Did you know Jefferson Davis, the president of the Confederacy was a Democrat? So that Confederate flag Democrats find so racist is actually their flag all along, hmmmmmm.
