John Edwards Has a Lovechild and the Eagles Sign Up Michael Vick

Bookmark and Share   So as we enter another summer weekend I can’t help but start it off being really pissed off at how utterly arrogant and callous much of society has gotten.

vickSickAs I was driving home from a late night of work that went from Thursday into the wee hours of the morning on Friday, I turned on the radio to listen to the news. In what was perfect timing, I caught it just as the anchor was reviewing the headlines before another never ending commercial break. In this teaser were the following highlights:

“Reports confirming that a prominent Democrat has a lovechild are about to surface and in Philadelphia, the Eagles have signed Michael Vick on for a one year contract. More after this……….”

With my eyes on the road I couldn’t help but wonder if I heard right.

The lovechild thing was not actually shocking. So another pol stuck his pole where it doesn’t belong, but if I heard it right, the Michael Vick thing was more than shocking, it was downright disgusting.

When the commercial ended the news reported that the Democrat with the lovechild was John Edwards. The same John Edwards who 4 years ago was John Kerry’s Vice Presidential pick and who only a year ago was crisscrossing America while preaching his virtues in an attempt to become President of the United States.

The scandal is just an extension of the same one that was discovered shortly after Edwards finally gave up his bid for President. At the time we learned that while the former Democrat Senator was dragging his loyal and cancer stricken wife around the country with him, when she was home, he was out and at play with a freelance writer helping out his campaign. Johnboy denied this at first and then he finally admitted it.

But then came the allegations that he tried to use campaign money to payoff his mistress and keep her quiet.

Those charges are still being investigated.

Not long after that came word that Johnny’s mistress had a child and that she believes it is his.

Well now we know. It is! Ain’t it great!

The whole thing pisses me off. I don’t care who is sleeping with who. It is none of my business but when you have the nerve to cheat on your ailing wife and sire a child with your mistress and at the same time, ask a nation to believe and trust you and make you their President, there is something wrong and it is so wrong that it compels me to not trust anyone who asks me for their vote.

But just as my disappointment in the sincerity of man was settling in, again, the news report continued and confirmed that I heard right the first time. The Philadelphia Eagles hired Michael Vick.


Michael Vick is a callous thug with no compassion, decency or morals. This is a man who for years was operating a dog fighting ring and was breeding, selling, training and transporting dogs for the purpose of dog fighting. Beyond the mere illegality of this activity is the brutal reality of what is behind it.

The dogs dragged into this reprehensible activity are trained in ways that could only be described as torture. The goal of those behind dog fighting is to develop a killer instinct in the animal. This is achieved by conditioning the animal to survive by being vicious. They are often starved for food. They are often beaten and they are almost always forced into a life that has no companionship, no comfort and no love.

This to Michael Vick, a so-called professional football player, was a “sport”. So much so that Vick used the wealth he accumulated from playing the game of football to turn in his sprawling estate into a dog fighting training ground and kennel.

When police discovered the facility on his property they also found 55 dogs. All of which were being slated for an eventual fight to the death that Vick and his cohorts would gamble on.

After pleading guilty, this scumbag, served 18 months in prison for his crime.

Now that he served the required time in prison for the death and torment of the animals he procured for sport, the Philadelphia eagles come along and scoop this athletic young man up to be on their team. They say that after serving his sentence everything is fine and dandy.

If Michael Vick stole a piece of jewelry or was caught speeding I would agree.

But Vick did more than just commit a simple transgression or demonstrate that we are all imperfect. He devoted lots of time and money to a premeditated and prolonged demonstration of a true thirst for blood that proved him to have no regard for life or decency at all.

He took innocent animals that are known for their intelligence and loyalty and then starved and tortured them in preparation of a struggle for survival that included being bitten, chewed and torn open and apart? The fortunate ones died quickly. The less fortunate ones lived on to endure the pain of their wounds for a while longer while the others lived to lick their wounds as they healed so that they could be forced to fight again.

This conduct is inexcusable and although one may be able to legally fulfill some indiscriminate sentence of punishment for such a crime, they can never erase or make up for the torment that those animals went through and it can never bring back the loyal companions who were cheated out of life.

Ultimately, although there are no legal grounds which allow a civil society to enforce any additional penalties upon Vick regarding the crimes that he served his legal sentence for, there are still acceptable and even appropriate consequences. There is a deserved lack of respect for him. There is legitimate reason not to put this man on a pedestal.

As a result, the National Football League never should have reinstated Michael Vick in the first place. He should have been banned from playing professional football. But he wasn’t. Even so, you would think that there would not exist a single major league franchise that would want to tarnish their reputation by embracing this subhuman disgrace to society. At least you would think that.

But Noooo…….The Philadelphia Eagles felt the need to bless their roster with Vick.

I don’t know who has less shame, Vick or the owners and managers of the Eagles?

These people have absolutely no decency or respect. Not for values, or standards of decency and certainly not for their fans who are overcharged for the opportunity to support the team.

Michael Vick is the same professional football player who the NFL fined $10,000 after he famously gave fans the middle finger when he lost a game for the team. He is the same man who has had several run ins with the law connected to drugs and whose own girlfriend, Sonia Elliot, sued him because he knowingly had genital herpes, did not tell her about it and subsequently spread them to her.

Is this the type of character that the Eagles want to reflect on them? Is this the type of athlete that athletic oriented youngsters should be compelled to look up to on the field of play? What is the message here? Is it that the dollar is the bottom line and that winning is everything?

Whatever the motives behind the Eagles move to sign up Vick, the message is WRONG!!! And the fans are the only ones who can correct it. Philadelphia Eagles fans and the citizens of Philadelphia now face a moment of truth. If they have any shred of decency in them, they will boycott the Eagles and they will not sit silently by and allow the “City of Brotherly Love” to embrace this man of hostile indifference and callous disregard.

As for me, the only way I will ever watch or go to a Philadelphia Eagles event will be if they strip Vick down to his skivvies, slather him in a chum of raw meat and drop him on the field amid four dozen rabid Doberman Pinschers, German Shepherds, Pit Bulls and Rottwielers.

Michael Vick is an example of what men of character should not be and as such he should not be held up as example of the type of man that a professional sports team should associate with and reward a lucrative salary to for playing a game he loves.

So as I start this summer weekend off not only do I do so already pissed, I am disappointed.

I am pissed at these examples of the fact that some of those who should be the best among us are actually some of the worst among us.

I am disappointed in the fact that among our political leaders, even those who would approach the highest office in our land are capable of being the most corrupt and misleading characters in all the land.

I am angry to see that in the area of one of our nation’s greatest pass times, we have people with such a disregard for decency and lack of respect that they would reward the most despicable and heartless in the land and offer them up on a national stage for all to cheer on.

I can only hope that on Monday, the next time I give the news a chance, there will be something positive revealed in it.

Maybe I will hear a story about a politician who donated a kidney to a needy constituent or even just something less dramatic like a politician caught on camera turning down a bribe and reporting the attempted bribe to the authorities. Maybe I will hear a story about three thousand Philadelphians showing up outside of Veteran Stadium to protest the teams acquisition of Michael Vick and that hundreds of season ticket holders are demanding their money back.

I won’t hold my breath.

But I also won’t wait to hear about some examples of decency, compassion or altruistic outreach. This weekend I will make it a point to take it upon myself and be responsible for setting a good example and demonstrating sincere acts of altruism.

I probably won’t be donating a kidney but I am pretty sure that I won’t be torturing animals or cheating on my partner.

NEW JERSEY'S GOVERNOR. How corrupt is Corzine?

 While New Jersey competes with Illinois for the title of most corrupt state in the Union, Illinois’ soon to be former Governor, Rod Blagojevich isn’t the only state executive trying to keep secrets.

New Jersey’s own Governor, Jon Corzine, is in the courts as he tries to keep his negotiations with one of the state’s most powerful unions a secret.

 She claims that state arbitration laws demand that the talks remain secret.

Ain’t that convenient? Laws that demand the people be kept in the dark about the reasons behind why the government does what it does. Sounds like Lenin’s rules of order for the politiburo


IL. GOV. ROD BLAGOJEVICH. His secrets out but when will Corzine's be out?

Like more than half of the voters polled in New Jersey, I disagree with the Governor’s position. I believe that state negotiations for state contracts that spend the tax dollars of state residents should be an open and honest process. We should know what was offered and why. We should know what the union demanded and why. We should not be kept in the dark when it comes to finding out how own money is spent.

Governor Corzine and Carla Katz may want to keep the details of their negotiated deal a secret but that is not how a democratic form of an open and honest government works.

The two of them were not arranging how they were going to finance their next personal vacation to Hawaii. They were negotiating how to spend our tax dollars. That gives us the right to know how that arrangement was made.

With all the corruption in New Jersey government, you would think that the governor would want to stay above reproach. You would think that he would go out of his way to help regain voters faith in government. Especially since he succeeded a corrupt democrat governor who resigned under a patronage and financial scandal that he tried to overshadow by announcing he was a closeted “gay American” who was cheating on his wife.

As more and more political leaders and government employees are being arrested in New Jersey, we need to know that our incumbent governor can be trusted.


CARLA KATZ Former Union Boss and the Governor's former Girlfriend. Things could get "hairy" for the two of them.

By appealing the courts decision and fighting to keep his “official” talks with Carla Katz a secret, Jon Corzine is only raising suspicion and increasing our already lost faith in government.

Corzine may not know how to be a good Governor but he is not stupid. He realizes all of this, yet he still defies the obvious and clings to the documentation of his secret arrangements with the CWA’s former president and his own former girlfriend.

The people and the courts of New Jersey deserve to know what is in those emails between Corizne and Katz. None of us are asking for the disclosure of any pillow talk or personal realizations. We simply want to make sure that the CWA contract deal was made for all the right reason.


KATZ & CORZINE-Struggling on the dance floor and now in the courts

Corzine’s refusal to clear his name by turning these emails over to the proper authorities simply makes one believe that, like many other indicted and arrested New Jersey politicians, Corzine made a corrupt deal. That is not exactly the best impression that one can bring to the table in their bid for reelection. But until Governor Corzine releases those emails, he will be running for reelection with a smoking gun in his hand. Then again if the appellate courts reject Corzine’s appeal, he may not be running for reelection after all. Instead he just might join a long list of fellow former state legislators and a few other governors in federal prison.



“Give this motherf****r Obama his senator? F**k him. For nothing.

 F**k him.”

Libelous Liberal Debate Amounts To Tabloid Terrorism

Libelous Liberal Debate Amounts To Tabloid Terrorism

I have struggled with whether or not I should give attention to a little listened to, low rated, struggling propaganda filled, left wing, smear mongering, radio station called Air America. I was torn. Do I give them attention or do I let them fade into the air on their own. I decided that keeping them a secret is not the right course to go. I determined that the best course of action is to shed light on their campaign of disinformation, distortion and despicable conduct. I felt that the secret of their existence should be exposed because it will help to establish the truth.

Air America is a small radio network that is propped up by liberal activists like Al Gore and George Soros. Their reason for being is to extol the virtues of liberalism and to promote the candidacies of any and all liberals. From comedian and Minnesota Democrat U.S. Senate nominee Al Franken, to liberal presidential nominee Barack Obama, Air America is vigilant in their pursuit to get them elected to office.

In doing so they rarely promote the candidates of their choice by putting forth their plans or policies. Instead they focus on Republicans . They go off the script of rational debate and enter into a National Enquirer mode and post and air headline grabbers smearing Republicans. Headlines like “Sarah Palin is Spiro Agnew in Drag” or “ Sarah Palin Wanted To Ban Books From The Library

Air America ignores any sense of decency or truth and runs with made up scandals and word of rumors that are outrageous and despicable.

Recently they went with a fairytale claiming that Track Palin, the son of vice presidential nominee and Alaska Governor Sarah Palin, is a racist.

According to Air America

“Sarah’s son Track is a serious Nazi sympathizer but he joined the white power movement rather recently. His story is not yet told. He was overheard talking about Mexicans in a derogatory way to other members of his unit. They were engaged in a conversation about immigration and it turned racial. Someone mentioned that John McCain while at the US Naval Academy harassed on a daily basis the first Mexican American cadet in Naval academy history. This caused Track Palin to say that he didn’t believe Mexicans should be allowed into our country and he did not understand that this Guy was an American of Mexican heritage“
Now how this can be passed on as news is beyond me. The story is devoid of any evidence and any reliable sources. It is only story on Air America. Not even the liberal icons of biased news on MSNBC have lowered themselves to this degree of trying to falsify truth and portray a smear like this as news or being newsworthy.

Yet Air America, in panic and desperation chooses to run with stories such as that one and more. At late they have been particularly dealing, on a relentless front, with Sarah Palin. Her popularity and the energy that her entry in this election has injected, petrifies liberals who thought that only their messiah, Barack “America” could attract praise and bring a fresh new face on the scene.

They believe that putting something in writing or allowing it to go out on the airwaves makes it believable or even true. Well in light of that thinking I am suggesting that those who do not believe in the Air America approach to debate, actually engage in that approach. Help the liberal, media, gossip mongers to understand what reckless abandonment brings to the table. Create for Air America, and their supporters, the same kind of atmosphere that they have created. Establish an environment in which they must defend against distortion and lies.

Do so by cutting the following excerpt and pasting it anywhere and everywhere that you can.

“There are claims that Democrat Barack Obama was spotted conducting extramarital, sexual activity with male Chicago gang lords in a back alley before he announced his race for President. Additional details indicate that Senator Obama later went home and bitch-slapped his wife Michelle before having a homosexual menage-a-tois with another Chicago gang lord and Obama financial backer, convicted Chicago slum lord, Tony Rezko. On top of that, in return for the sexual favor, Mr. Rezko made an unrecorded donation of $2,500 dollars to the Obama for President effort. All of which was conducted in front of Obama’s religious mentor Rev. Wright, who was there to fulfill a deviant sexual fetish by watching.”
Is any of this true, I don’t know? But by the standards that Air America uses to post and air their own disgusting lies and smears, it is worthy of reproduction. Now you may find that excerpt offensive and you may be angry at me for even suggesting it. Maybe even as angry as I am of the devoid of fact, liberal establishment that is the impetus behind such smut merchants as the Daily KOO’s or Air America in regards to someone simply because they are Republican.

I am willing to deal with distortions or even lies about a candidates record. I am willing to argue over the interpretation of a candidates statement or their policies but I am not willing to tolerate or accept fictional creations as a basis for determining who the next President of our nation should be.

Liberals and defenders of these tactics may claim that Air America is only countering the preponderance of conservative radio talk shows. The problem there is the fact that these talk shows do not fabricate headlines. They discuss them, granted they do so with the ideological slant that they come from, but it is about the truth, not fictional distortions.

I do not want to become a tabloid terrorist like Air America. I want to be able to stay on topic and make a difference in the real world. That can only be done by dealing with reality and true facts and that I will do. I believe that to solve our economic woes we need to know the real reasons that led to them. To fight terrorism we need to know the true facts involving terrorist and their activity. By liberals pumping out headlines like “Bush Lied, People Died”, no cause is advanced or problem is solved. Nothing is accomplished by running with lies that state Sarah Palin pretended to give birth to a child 5 months ago but it was actually her daughters child, . I don’t want to engage in a debate about fairy tales. Fairy tales end however the storyteller wants them to but truth is a result only reached by the telling of facts.

So I will continue to offer my opinions based upon truth and the facts but in the mean time I also offer you the opportunity to cut and paste in participation with the Air America tactics that liberals base their debate on.
