Bad Times In Atlantic City

From Fox News: The show is over for the Showboat Casino Hotel.
The Mardi Gras-themed casino shut down Sunday after 27 years on the Atlantic City Boardwalk. It was one of three casinos closing within the next two weeks as Atlantic City deals with the impact of increasing competition from casinos in neighboring states. Revel will begin a two-day closing Monday, and Trump Plaza is closing Sept. 16.
"We're all feeling a little betrayed," Showboat cook Curtis Wade said. "We're all walking around in a fog today. We worked really hard to try to keep it operating, and we're still profitable. We still don't understand why we were the one targeted to close, and nobody has given us an answer on that. There are too many jobs being pushed out of Atlantic City due to corporate greed."
Wade will be among the thousands of workers showing up at the Atlantic City Convention Center on Wednesday for a mass unemployment filing.
The Showboat's owner, Caesars Entertainment, closed the still-profitable casino to reduce the number of casinos in Atlantic City, which has been struggling with plunging revenue and increased competition in the saturated northeastern U.S. casino market.
The Showboat stopped admitting new customers at 3 p.m. Sunday. At 4 p.m., security guards emerged to tape to the glass doors paper signs that read, "Closed."
Inside the casino, recordings urged customers to patronize Caesars Entertainment's three remaining casinos in Atlantic City: Caesars, Harrah's and Bally's.
Caesars Entertainment CEO Gary Loveman wrote in a letter to employees that the Showboat has been in business in Atlantic City for 27 years and Caesars was proud to operate it for 16 years.
"I want to thank the Showboat Atlantic City team for their dedication, professionalism, and commitment to our guests -- both throughout the years and especially over the past several weeks," he wrote
Atlantic City is going through what Vegas went through a few years ago.  Now, Vegas is somewhat thriving, but the casinos, for the most part, have huge debt that they will have to pay off.
And when the next recession hits Vegas in another couple of years, if not earlier, we will have thousands of casino employees looking for jobs as well.

Michael Sam Out Of NFL

Image result for funny pictures of michael sam
As I expected, Michael Sam, the gay college football player, was cut by the St. Louis Rams at the end of training camp.
Sam proved he was a good football player but not good enough to be a NFL player.  Yesterday, hundreds of players were cut by NFL teams, but Sam was the one to garner all the attention because he was gay.
Sam played against 2nd and 3rd string players and was a 1 dimensional player, who was small for his position.
I think Sam was drafted because he was gay and he was cut because he wasn't a NFL caliber player.
He received so much attention during training camp, especially when he got a sack, that I am sure it did cause problems that some 7th round rookie received so much attention over veterans and other higher drafted rookies.
I doubt he will be picked up by another team or be on a practice squad.
He should consider himself lucky as he was able to play with NFL players, play in exhibition games- something so many boys and some girls have dreamed about but never got the chance Sam did.
It also didn't help that he got Oprah involved and then at the end, he left training camp, went to the Missouri football game and was introduced to the crowd and blew a kiss and bowed to the crowd.
Good luck to Sam in his future endeavors and hopefully, he went college and got a degree that he can use.

Kevin Harvick Almost Hits Black Cat During Race, Then Crashes

A black cat darts in front of his race car in the early part of the race.
At the end of the race, Harvick crashed into the wall, finishing 19th, even though he had the best car all night long.
Never let a black cat cross your path.
BTW, the cat had to be going at least 50 mph to get out of Harvick's car, which was going about 180 mph.

Oh My

Paul Menard is going to have to win a lot of races to pay off this claim.
From the Detroit Free Press: A trip to a home improvement store turned fatal Saturday morning.
Richard Colletti, 38, of Clinton Township was shopping with his wife in the Menards on Market Place Boulevard in Chesterfield Township about 10:30 a.m. when a pallet of ceramic tile fell off an upper storage shelf inside the store, according to a release from the Chesterfield Police Department.
The tiles fell about 15 feet and hit Colletti in the head.
Colletti was transported to McLaren Hospital in Mt. Clemens and died there from the injuries suffered from the tile falling on him, police said. Police said store management and employees have been cooperating with police.
Police said no further details would be released until Tuesday

I'm Glad I Didn't Watch This Game

Image result for picture of man throwing tv
As a somewhat proud Wisconsin Badger Alumni (Alumnus?), I'm glad I didn't watch the Wisconsin-LSU game last night.
From ESPN:  Down 10 to Wisconsin already, LSU started the second half with a delay of game penalty on the opening kickoff. On the Badgers' first play from scrimmage, Melvin Gordon sprinted 63 yards up the middle to set up another touchdown.
Not a good start. But the Tigers still found the right way to finish.
Kenny Hilliard scored on a 28-yard touchdown run to cap a fourth-quarter rally for No. 13 LSU in a 28-24 win over No. 14 Wisconsin at NRG Stadium on Saturday night.
The Tigers trailed 24-21 when Jalen Mills intercepted Tanner McEvoy's pass at the LSU 47 with 11:04 left. Hilliard ran for 53 yards on the ensuing drive, sprinting through a hole on the right side to finish off the improbable comeback.
The Tigers extended the nation's longest regular-season nonconference winning streak to 46 games by overcoming a 24-7 deficit in the fourth quarter.
If I were watching the game, we would be shopping for a new TV tomorrow.
If this is the way the Badgers are going to play this season, it's going to be a very long season.

Obama Just Clueless About isis

From Fox News: Islamic State fighters in Iraq are reportedly reserving a special kind of cruelty for women from minority religions.
The militants are keeping hundreds of Yazidi, Christian, and Turkoman women in Mosul’s Badush prison, gang-raping some and selling others as brides for as low as $25, The Daily Beast reports.
They’re even forcing local beauticians to come into the prison to dress the women up with makeup. Survivors said that many of those held in the prison were teenagers, some as young as 14.
The women are given a choice: They can convert to the militant’s violent interpretation of Islam or face daily rape. Those who convert are reportedly sold off like cattle to Islamic State fighters and ordered to be submissive, women’s rights advocates in the region report. Their selling price ranges from $25 to $150.
One mother of a captive woman said her daughter managed to hide a cell phone in the prison and has been describing horrific tales of being raped by dozens of men over a few hours.
Other women said that children born out of rape have been ripped from their mothers’ arms, and never seen again.
U.N. officials in Iraq have suggested that some 1,500 people from religious minorities may have been forced into sexual slavery.
Pakhshan Zangana, a women’s rights advocate in the region, has been seeking private donations to try and buy the captured women back from the militants.
And yet Obama has no idea what to do with isis and that band of thugs.
Obama just goes "duuhhhhhhh" all day

Good For Them

From the Las Vegas Sun: Southern Utah University President Scott Wyatt acknowledged he was under pressure from a group of conservatives to remove Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid's name from a center on campus, but he insisted politics had nothing to do with his decision to do so.
Wyatt said he told the group to stop raising money and that he would not accept it to remove Reid's name from the center.
Instead, he decided to strike Reid's name because it created confusion about the center's purpose because "nobody" associated the senator with the outdoors, Wyatt said. The center rents outdoor equipment to students, offers internship programs for students seeking outdoor careers and coordinates project-based learning activities for students.
Wyatt also said the school's 2011 naming of the center in Reid's honor generated no donations to it from the senator's friends as had been hoped. Reid graduated from the university in 1959.
Actually, Reid does have an industrial park in Las Vegas's west side, near Flamingo and the I-215..
Like Reid's brain, there is nothing in the park, except a large a large space with some junk in it, kind of like this:

What's The Over/Under?

I realize this is going to sound mean and crass, but who cares- certainly not Jesse, Barack, Al, Eric, Rahm and the other racists out there.
What's the over/under for the number of people shot in Obamaville/Chicago and the number of those murdered?
From Friday night to Monday night, I put the over/under of those shot at 40.
And the those reported killed by thugs: I put the over/under at 6.
Too bad we cannot get a casino to take these bets.

Damn, They Didn't Keep Her

From the LVRJ: Rep. Dina Titus, D-Nev., joined a handful of lawmakers from the United States and Mexico at the border on Friday to talk about the surge north of unaccompanied children from Central America.
In a telephone call with reporters from the Texas border, Titus said there has been a dramatic drop in crossings since the humanitarian crisis made headlines a month ago.
“Very few children are here because those numbers have declined so much,” she said.
A major crackdown by Mexico has cut the number of child migrants and families crossing into the United States.
From October to July, about 63,000 unaccompanied children were detained after entering the U.S. illegally, double the number from the same period a year earlier. Another 63,000 families — mothers or fathers with young children — were picked up during that period.
There were no Central American children in the government shelter in Reynosa, across the border from McAllen, Texas, coordinator Jose Guadalupe Villegas Garcia said Thursday. During the surge, at any one time the shelter housed about 15 Central American kids who had been apprehended or rescued by Mexican authorities before crossing the Rio Grande. Officials say the children are being caught long before they get to the border.
While the numbers are down now, Titus said that it is hard to say whether the trend will continue. She said more should be done to encourage economic investments in El Salvador, Honduras and Guatemala where most of the migrants have come from.
She also said that more immigration judges are needed to process the cases.
“Even though children are no longer in (temporary) facilities and the numbers have gone down considerably, they are still in limbo — including 175 in Nevada,” she said. “They need to have a fair chance to make their case whether they need asylum or not.”
First, it's a damn shame they didn't keep Felony Thief Dina Titus, who is known around here for stealing money from UNLV, even worse than Hillary Clinton. But the dumb blonde says there is no easy answer to the border crisis.
Actually, there are many easy solutions.
1. Secure the border and put the Border agents on or near the border.
2.  Fine and/or arrest business owners who hire illegals.
3. Deport the kids- no trial, back to their country of origin.
4.  Close down sanctuary cities and states. Make these cities and states turn over illegals over to the INS/Border Patrol.
5.  Keep Obama and the democrat's mouths shut and stop encouraging illegals to cross the border with a false hope of amnesty.
See Felony Thief Titus, 5 easy solutions on how to discourage illegals from crossing the border.
Now, I suspect Felony Thief Titus will not listen to these ideas and she will continue to act like a total brain dead fool and continue to complain about the problem.

Not Surprising

From Fox News: Social media chatter shows Islamic State militants are keenly aware of the porous U.S.-Mexico border, and are “expressing an increased interest” in crossing over to carry out a terrorist attack, according to a Texas law enforcement bulletin sent out this week.
“A review of ISIS social media messaging during the week ending August 26 shows that militants are expressing an increased interest in the notion that they could clandestinely infiltrate the southwest border of US, for terror attack,” warns the Texas Department of Public Safety "situational awareness" bulletin, obtained by
“Social media account holders believed to be ISIS militants and propagandists have called for unspecified border operations, or they have sought to raise awareness that illegal entry through Mexico is a viable option,” states the law enforcement bulletin, which is not classified.
It notes no known credible homeland threats or specific homeland attack plot has been identified. That assertion was underscored by Department of Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson, who said Friday that DHS and the FBI are "unaware of any specific, credible threat to the U.S. homeland" from Islamic State.
Despite assurances that no threat to American soil is imminent, the watchdog group Judicial Watch said Friday that Islamic State operatives are in Juarez just across the border from Texas, and are planning to attack the United States with car bombs.
"Agents across a number of Homeland Security, Justice and Defense agencies have all been placed on alert and instructed to aggressively work all possible leads and sources concerning this imminent terrorist threat,"
Let's see.
9/11 is coming in about 2 weeks.  Prime time for terrorists.
The Southern border is basically open to anyone who wants to cross.
We have a bunch of FBI agents running around Ferguson, MO., looking to frame a police officer who killed a thug, after the thug attacked him.
We have a president who admits he doesn't have a clue about what is going on.
It will be only plain dumb luck if we don't get attacked by terrorists in the next 3 weeks.

Obama Imitates Lex Luthor

President Obama

Lex Luthor
So, are they related?
Well, both are cartoon characters.
Both are highly regarded in the media.
From Wiki: Luthor is a wealthy, power-mad business magnate of high intelligence and incredible technological prowess.[1] Luthor's goals typically center on killing Superman, the foremost obstacle to achieving the villain's megalomaniacal goals....
Lex Luthor has carefully crafted his public persona however, in order to avoid arrest...
donating millions of dollars to Metropolis over the years, funding parks, foundations, and medical charities.[
Well, clearly, Obama is not a business magnate.
He is not a technology genius, especially when it comes to e-mails.
However. Luthor and Obama do have things in common;
Tan suits.
Luthor is white.
Obama pretends he is white, except when he becomes a black racist.
Both pretend to be presidents.
Both are huge megalomanics
  1. a person who is obsessed with their own power.
  2.     a person who suffers delusions of their own power or importance.
  3.     adjective
Both have a carefully crafted public persona.
Obama will have to find ways to avoid arrest after he leaves office- can he pardon himself?
Luthor wanted to kill Superman.
Obama wants to harm/kill everyone who threaten the United States, except muslims, border crossers, liberals, Democrats, people in the United States illegally, terrorists, atheists, gays etc, leaving only conservatives and Republicans he wishes to harm.
Obama donates money to parks, foundations and medical charities, except it's not through his own money but he uses taxpayer money and laws to support these groups.
So, Luthor and Obama do have a lot in common and not just the suits.

Obama, Holder Supports These Thug Rioters

From St. Louis Today: Two police officers are no longer working at their departments due to their actions during the protests in Ferguson.
A Glendale police officer suspended last Friday after commenting on Facebook that he thought Ferguson protesters should be "put down like rabid dogs," has been fired, officials say.
Meanwhile, a St. Ann police lieutenant resigned Thursday after he pointed an assault rifle at protesters and cursed at them, officials said.  Lt. Ray Albers had worked for the department for 20 years....
Jiminez said that Albers raising his weapon was “totally justifiable.” Prior to the camera turning on, Albers had had water and urine thrown at him. He then saw three men with bandanas in the crowd, and one of them had a gun. He then heard gunshots, but not from that gun. So Albers raised his gun. The three men started running, and then a crowd of people with cameras raised saw him with the raised gun and came toward him. They were “a whole bunch of what you'd call citizen journalists, who were sitting with cameras recording, waiting for something stupid to happen, which they got. They won on this one.”
Yeah, throwing urine on the cops is totally acceptable along with thugs with guns, at least according to Obama and Holder who demanded the cops act with restraint.
These thugs are Obama voters and these thugs are who Obama loves.
Michael Brown is another thug that Obama and Holder who chose to champion, even though Brown robbed a store, beat up an employee and fought with the cop who shot him and severely beat the cop.
Once again, it shows the complete lack of judgment and the lack of common sense by Obama and Holder.

51st State?

From the Sacramento Bee: The State of Jefferson isn’t waiting around for the Six Californias initiative to qualify to push ahead with its plan for independence.
Supporters of the Northern California secession movement are in Sacramento today to formally lodge their complaints with the state. They plan to submit declarations from Modoc and Siskiyou counties to the Legislature and Secretary of State expressing their desire to withdraw from California and reform under a new state government.
Mark Baird, one of the organizers of the Jefferson movement, said a lack of representation in Sacramento for the north state is causing them harm and the declarations represent an official request for redress.
“What we’re doing is forming standing for a challenge if the state ignores our demands,” he said.
Four more declarations from Yuba, Sutter, Glenn and Tehama counties will be presented in the coming months, Baird said, and when the number of like-minded counties reaches at least 10, the State of Jefferson will be ready to make its move. By then, though, he hopes south staters will be willing to let them go peacefully., a big earthquake will hit California and it will break off and fall into the ocean and wipe out the State of California.But if that won't happen, then any county that wants to leave California, they should be allowed to leave as California has shown that it is a communist State, run by lunatics and inhabited by combination of low lifes collecting money from the government, government employees and rich liberals who pay little in taxes and like to dictate to people on how other people should live their lives while they do the opposite.

California Democrats Stupidity

From the Sacramento Bee: An effort to help workers recover back wages by allowing them to slap liens on their employers’ property failed Thursday in the California Senate when numerous Democrats withheld their votes.
The failure of Assembly Bill 2416 demonstrated the power of the California Chamber of Commerce, which had labeled the measure a “job killer.” Employers argued the bill would have launched costly and unfair legal battles. Labor unions who backed the bill said it would solve a current problem, where filing claims for stolen wages can take more than a year, giving employers the chance to close shop.
“AB 2416 provides workers who are victims of wage theft with an avenue to claim the wages they are rightfully owed,” said Sen. Ricardo Lara, D-Bell Gardens, as he presented the bill by Assemblyman Mark Stone on the Senate floor.
As Lara spoke, workers from the SEIU union watched from the gallery above. The bill failed when it received only 13 yes votes, leaving the measure eight votes short of passage. It is eligible for reconsideration on Friday. Instead going to court, employees could just slap a lien on their employer's home.What could go wrong?Like a disgruntled worker harassing an employer.Keeping the courts out and just taking the employee's word for it.Using the liens against the employer in a wage dispute/labor dispute.More stupidity from California Democrats.

Voter fraud? What Voter fraud?

From the Baltimore Sun: The State Board of Elections has alerted the Office of the State Prosecutor to a report that 164 people voted in both Maryland and Virginia in the November 2012 presidential election, in violation of the law.
Election officials confirmed Thursday that the referral included 17 cases in which the Fairfax County, Va., elections board investigated the report by outside advocacy groups and said they found that ballots had been cast in that county and in Maryland in the same voters' names. Fairfax officials have referred that finding to four federal and Virginia criminal investigation agencies.
A spokesman for the District of Columbia elections board said his agency is working with the Maryland state prosecutor to look into an unspecified number of cases in which voters might have cast votes in both Washington and Maryland.Authorities in Maryland an Virginia are acting on information generated by two conservative advocacy groups, Election Integrity Maryland and the Virginia Voters Alliance. With the Virginia group taking the lead, the groups used a computer program to comb the voter rolls in both states. They say they have identified about 44,000 people registered in both states, and 164 who cast ballots in both in 2012.
"We are concerned that these voters are going to be able to continue to do this until they are prosecuted," said Cathy Kelleher, president of the Maryland group.
A spokesman for Maryland's state prosecutor said he could neither confirm nor deny that an investigation had been launched.
Nikki Baines Charlson, deputy administrator of the state elections board, said the agency is letting Virginia authorities take the lead in looking into the reports of double-voting. When the board received the list of 164 possible double voters from the advocates, she said, it forwarded them to the state prosecutor. She said the board will assist investigators by helping them obtain any documents they need.
Charlson said the elections board often receives reports of double voting that do not check out. Often what appears to be an attempt by a voter to cast two ballots turns out to be an error by an election judge.
But some of the findings in Fairfax County may be difficult to explain.
Brian Schoeneman, secretary of the Fairfax County board, said the agency looked at all 17 cases brought to it by the Virginia Voters Alliance and worked with elections officials in Montgomery County to check them against Maryland voting records.
He said the board matched up names, dates of birth and the last four digits of Social Security numbers and found matches indicating double votes in each case.

Sadly, these illegal voters took away the votes of legitimate voters, disenfranchising the legitimate voters.
Just another reason for voter ID and other ways to restrict illegal voters.
I would rather find ways to stop illegal voting, even if that means a legitimate voter may not be allowed to vote because they refused to follow the rules of voting.  These who vote illegally are taking away legitimate voters rights and that is wrong.

New Polls Are Up

My quarterly polls are up and you are asked the following questions:
1. Should congress impeach President Obama in 2015
2.  How warm was your summer
3.  How many NFL games are you going to watch a week.
Unlike many states, you don't need a voter ID to vote and like in Chicago, you can vote early and often.
Please take the time to take the poll on the left hand side of your screen.

Umm, Remember This?

Apparently, Michelle, Barack, John and Hillary all forgot about the girls who were kidnapped in Nigeria, were either forced to convert to that religion of peace, islam, or die.
Obama supposedly sent some special forces into Nigeria and how did that turn out?
Who knows? 
And the media won't ask these questions.
And what happened to the girls?
Who knows?
The media won't ask and Obama won't tell.
Just another failed U.S. policy under Obama.
It's time to impeach Obama and give us Crazy Joe.
He certainly can't be any worse than Obama.

Very, Very Impressive Pitching

From ESPN: San Francisco Giants right-hander Yusmeiro Petit has set a major league record by retiring 46 consecutive batters.
Petit set down the first eight Colorado hitters he faced Thursday, setting the record by striking out Charlie Culberson and drawing a standing ovation at AT&T Park. That broke the mark held by Mark Buehrle of 45 in a row for the Chicago White Sox in 2009.
"I think it's like a reward for all the work I have put into my pitching," Petit said through a translator.
The streak ended when the next batter, Rockies pitcher Jordan Lyles, doubled to left field.
"I was a little nervous when the hitters were advancing toward the record. But in that pitch to the pitcher, I was not nervous," Petit said. "I was doing my job. The first pitch was fine. The second pitch was fine, too, but it slid a little bit where I didn't want it to."
Petit went on to pick up the win in a 4-1 victory over the Rockies.
Petit's string covered eight games, six of them in relief. He also surpassed Jim Barr's National League record of 41 in a row with the Giants in 1972.
The 29-year-old journeyman from Venezuela fell one out shy of a perfect game against Arizona last September, with Eric Chavez wrecking Petit's shot at baseball lore with a single.
"I think God gave me a second opportunity, and I said to myself, 'He's giving me another opportunity. This time, I'm not going to allow myself to not do it,'" Petit said.
Petit (4-3) made this start in place of struggling Tim Lincecum, who was available out of the bullpen. Petit allowed four hits, struck out nine and walked none, pitching out of the stretch the entire game.
Petit threw an equivalent of a perfect game plus 19 more outs.
But what really sucks is that the person who broke the streak was a low hitting pitcher, who usually couldn't hit a wiffle ball with an oversized bat.

Hillary The Horrible

Nothing like using a tragedy to further your political career.
From the New York Daily News:
The devastated wife of the veteran gun instructor who was accidentally gunned down by a machine-gun-toting 9-year-old during a firearms lesson gone terribly wrong remained grief-stricken Thursday as she and her children struggled to comprehend the bizarre tragedy.
Charles Vacca was fatally shot in the head Monday after an automatic Uzi machine gun recoiled in the arms of the 9-year-old girl he was instructing, spraying bullets everywhere - and throwing his young family into emotional disarray.
"It's really difficult," his wife told The News Thursday. "The kids are taking it hard."

But Hillary "The Bitch" Clinton has decided to open up her $300,000 mouth;
Lawmakers had remained relatively quiet about the incident - no laws were broken because Arizona firearms laws allow minors to hold guns if they are on private property, or if they are accompanied by their parents or legal guardians - but on Thursday one prominent potential presidential contender weighed in.
"(It's) just the height of irresponsibility," Hillary Clinton said at a San Francisco technology conference about the fact that a child had been allowed to fire such a potent weapon, CNN reported. "...To say nothing of the choice of letting your child do that."

Who the hell is Clinton to decide for the parents what is responsible or not.  Some kids have been raised with guns and guns come 2nd nature to them.  Clinton then substitutes her judgment with the instructor and the kids parents.
Was it a horrible accident, of course.
Was it irresponsible for the instructor and parent to allow the child to fire the weapon?  I don't know because I don't the kid and her knowledge of guns and I am not going to 2nd guess the instructor because he is an expert in weapons.
It's a horrible accident, but Clinton, with her $300,000 mouth has decided to pile on the kid's family and the instructor before the body is even buried.
What a bitch.

Another Reason Why People Hate Government

From jsonline: The former head of the Milwaukee FBI office twice scolded subordinates for talking to investigators, and in one case urged an agent to commit perjury, a Department of Justice report finds.
Staff from the Office of the Inspector General concluded that former Milwaukee Special Agent in Charge Teresa Carlson most likely lied to them when they questioned her. They also found she may have broken federal law by telling an agent to lie under oath.
The Justice Department declined to prosecute Carlson, and the FBI refuses to say if she has been disciplined. She remains in a high-ranking job, as acting deputy assistant director of the Facilities and Logistics Services Division — a position she assumed after being removed as head of the Milwaukee office last summer, an FBI spokesman said Thursday.
Inspector General Michael Horowitz's office found Carlson "conducted herself unprofessionally and exhibited extremely poor judgment" when she coached Special Agent Mark Crider on how to testify in the case of Justin Slaby, a wounded war veteran trying to become an FBI agent.
According to Crider, Carlson told him to "come down" on the FBI's side in the case. Carlson denied she told Crider how to testify, but the inspector general staff concluded that Carlson's version of events was not credible.
Carlson invoked her Fifth Amendment right against self-incrimination last year after she was subpoenaed to explain the conversation. Likewise, she refused to speak to inspector general staff until she was forced to do so.
Many people have gone to jail for lying to the Feds.  Ask Martha Stewart.
And this coppette lied, had other people lie, refused to talk investigators and if you and I did that, we would be sitting in federal prison.
Instead, this corrupt cop is rewarded with a high paying position in the FBI.

2014 Las Vegas NFL Team Bars

So, if you are visiting or living in Las Vegas and you want to support your favorite NFL team by getting drunk before 10:00 AM, the LVRJ has put out their annual NFL team bars.
The Bears, Packers and Broncos all have 5 team bars.  the Bears used to lead the league in the number of Bear bars, but like the Bears, they just keep on losing.
Even the Buffalo Bills has a bar.
But if you like Atlanta, Tampa Bay, Arizona, Jets, Cincinnati and a couple more cities don't have a bar for their fans.

More Obama Stupidity

From Fox News:
Charles Krauthammer ripped President Obama's foreign policy Thursday on "Special Report with Bret Baier," blasting the president for holding a news conference at which he said, "we don't have a strategy yet" for dealing with ISIS in Syria.
"The president of the United States, in the middle of a real crisis, a few days after the beheading of an American...gets in front of the world and says, I don't have a strategy," the syndicated columnist and Fox News contributor said.  "If that is true, don't say anything. Why do you announce you don't have a strategy?"
Obama addressed the tension in his news conference, but didn't refer to the movement as an "invasion."
"Obama said there's nothing new here, move along - as if the sending of a column of tanks, armored personnel carriers, and self-repelled artillery into Ukraine is not what it obviously is - it's an invasion," Krauthammer said.
"He basically said, we're going to do nothing, I'll wait until I chat with the allies next week," he added. "How about picking up the phone and talking with the allies? You know, the phone is a way to communicate rather rapidly."
Even if you don't have a strategy, you don't tell your enemy that.
If you were fighting Muhammad Ali and you had no clue how to fight him, you just don't throw up your hands and say I have no clue what I am doing.
You go in the ring, act like a man, tell Ali you are going to kick his ass and then see what happens.
Now, Obama makes the U.S. and himself look like a damn fool and completely weak.

Obama/Senile Reid Stupidity Shown Again

From Fox News:
The convicted shooter in the Fort Hood massacre has written a letter to the leader of the Islamic State saying he wants to become a "citizen" of the caliphate, in the latest example of the terror group's reach inside the U.S.
The letter from Nidal Hasan, obtained by Fox News, comes after two Americans reportedly died fighting for ISIS in Syria. Sources late Wednesday identified the second as Abdirahmaan Muhumed, of Minneapolis. Fox affiliate KMSP-TV in Minneapolis reported that Muhumed was killed in the same battle as Douglas McAuthur McCain, who grew up outside Minneapolis in the town of New Hope and most recently lived in San Diego.
.In the undated letter, Hasan -- who fatally shot 13 people and injured more than 30 at Fort Hood in 2009 in what the Defense Department called “workplace violence”-- tells ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi that he wants to join the caliphate.
"I formally and humbly request to be made a citizen of the Islamic State,”Hasan says in the handwritten document addressed to “Ameer, Mujahid Dr. Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi.”
"It would be an honor for any believer to be an obedient citizen soldier to a people and its leader who don't compromise the religion of All-Mighty Allah to get along with the disbelievers."
The two-page letter includes Hasan’s signature and the abbreviation SoA for Soldier of Allah.
To this day, Obama, Senile/Coward/Liar Harry Reid and may Democrats still say the Fort Hood shooting was not a terrorist attack but just some workplace misunderstanding.
How stupid can these idiots be... wait, please don't answer that.

Wednesday, August 27, 2014


From the Houston Chronicle: The bereaved father who witnessed the death of his two young children did not murder the drunken driver who killed them, a jury here in Brazoria County decided Wednesday, a coda that ratcheted up the emotions already thought to have peaked when both sides lost loved ones.
The jury acquitted David Barajas, who faced a murder charge in the shooting death of a 20-year-old man, Jose Banda. Banda drove his Chevrolet Malibu into the children while they pushed their father's stalled Ford 250 truck on an unlit road near Alvin to their nearby house. In a fit of retaliatory rage, prosecutors argued, Barajas returned to his home, retrieved a pistol and fired away at Banda's head with revenge.
But prosecutors faced an uphill climb in erasing any reasonable doubt in jurors' minds. Police failed to produce a murder weapon linked to the killing, gunpowder residue tests on Barajas' hands were negative and no witnesses saw anything that transpired on the dark December night. Though Barajas' attorneys could not identify who else could have killed Banda, who had a blood alcohol level twice the legal limit, the lawyers managed to create enough ambiguity that pushed a conviction out of reach.
The verdict opened any wounds that may have begun to heal since the 2012 deaths of Banda and Barajas' children, 11-year-old Caleb and 12-year-old David Jr.
The announcement in the courtroom simultaneously triggered claps of relief and clasps of despair as Barajas' and Banda's families reacted to the decision of the 12 jurors.
Banda's family sobbed as they filed out of the courthouse quickly. Barajas, at a news conference with his legal team and wife, also sobbed – but for very different reasons.
"A lot of weight's been lifted off my back," said Barajas, fighting with his hands in pockets to retain his composure. "I'm hurt about it. It hurt me from the beginning, on top of the hurt that I was already feeling because of my sons."
This case should never have brought to a court.  Even if the guy did it, which the DA never proved, what jury in their right mind would have convicted him?
While it is harsh to say, but the world is a better place with the murderer drunk driver without him in it.

HaHa Californian's

From Fox News:
Californians already pay the nation's second highest gas tax at 68 cents a gallon -- and now it will go up again in January to pay for a first-in-the-nation climate change law.
"I didn't know that," said Los Angeles motorist Tyler Rich. "It's ridiculous."
"I think it’s terrible," added Lupe Sanchez, pumping $4.09-a-gallon gas at a Chevron near Santa Monica. "The economy, the way it is right now with jobs and everything, it's just crazy."
When gas prices go up, motorists typically blame oil companies, Arab sheiks and Wall Street speculators. This time they can blame Sacramento and former Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger for passing a bill requiring California to reduce carbon emissions to 1990 levels by 2020.
The tax on carbon already raised about $1 billion in revenue by requiring manufacturers and utilities to buy credits for each ton of carbon emitted into the atmosphere. At the beginning of next year, the law will also apply to oil and gas. Refiners and distributors say they will pass another $2 billion in costs on - largely to consumers.
"Ultimately it hurts the consumer," said California Independent Oil and Marketing Association spokesman Mike Rohrer. "It is going to affect anyone who has a vehicle. Be it a motorist that is commuting back and forth to work or a trucker just moving goods throughout the state of California, the cost is immediately going to increase because whatever we have to pay for in carbon credits ultimately we have to pass through to the consumer."
Estimates of the cost of the tax vary. The California Air Resources Board, the Golden State's premier anti-pollution agency, predicts the new tax will raise gasoline prices from 20 cents to $1.30 per gallon. A prominent state senator who helped author the bill estimated the cost at 40 cents a gallon. Environmental activists downplay the cost, but hail the impact.
I don't feel sorry for anybody in California.  They have voted for the Democrats and when you vote for Democrats, you get large bloated government, government employees with huge salaries, pensions and benefits and that raises taxes on it's citizens at the drop of the hat, whether they can afford the taxes or not.
And when you elect a governor like Jerry Brown who is even worse than Obama, you deserve every tax raise you get.

I'm Surprised Something Like Has Not Happened Already

From the
Just 18 hours after Omaha police killed a television crew member and a robber armed with only a pellet gun, Police Chief Todd Schmaderer said his officers were justified in firing their weapons.
The chief said Wednesday he based his initial findings on three eyewitness accounts as well as footage captured by the crew’s cameraman as he sheltered himself from gunfire.“The officers had no choice other than to respond in the manner in which they did,” Schmaderer said during a midafternoon press conference with the mayor and the producers of the “Cops” reality show, whose crew has been in Omaha all summer recording the actions of officers.
The violence broke out about 9:20 p.m. Tuesday at the Wendy’s restaurant at 4308 Dodge St.
Three officers shot multiple times after the 32-year-old suspect fired what looked and sounded like a real firearm, Schmaderer said.
Schmaderer said the investigation into the double fatality has just begun. A Douglas County grand jury will be called to examine the department’s actions, and the Police Department’s officer-involved shooting unit also will investigate.
The “Cops” crew member, 38-year-old Bryce Dion, was a sound mixer from Boston who had recently been promoted. He died at the Nebraska Medical Center.
Dion was wearing a bullet-proof vest — but that extra protection couldn’t save him. Schmaderer said the bullet entered Dion’s body through an opening in the vest just under his armpit.
The Cops crew had only had one week to go until the show was scheduled to wrap up its work in Omaha.
I am just surprised this hasn't before, where a COPs crew was seriously injured.  I've seen episodes where the crew was involved in traffic accidents and were injured, but nothing like this.
And there is this from the sister of the black thug who fired a realistic looking and sounding air pistol:
She said she recognizes that Washington committed a crime but that police acted excessively. To see how real the Airsoft gun looked, she bought one Wednesday, she said.
“(He) is supposed to be in jail, he’s not supposed to be in the grave.” she said. “It wasn’t justified with how he was killed ... All of these bullets in the building for a man with an airgun?”
What a stupid black bitch who blames the cops for the thug's death but doesn't blame the thug.
She sounds like she is hoping to piggyback off the thug Michael Brown's death after he robbed a store, assaulted an employee and tried to kill the police officer in Missouri.
RIP to the COPs employee and may the thug go to hell, where he belongs.

And Yet We Are Having One Of Our Coldest Years

From the Chicago Tribune: Humans risk causing irreversible and widespread damage to the planet unless there's faster action to limit the fossil fuel emissions that cause climate change, according to a leaked draft United Nations report.
Global warming already is impacting "all continents and across the oceans," and further pollution from heat-trapping gases will raise the likelihood of "severe, pervasive and irreversible impacts for people and ecosystems," according to the document obtained by Bloomberg.
"Without additional mitigation, and even with adaptation, warming by the end of the 21st century will lead to high to very high risk of severe, widespread, and irreversible impacts globally," the UN Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change said in the draft.
This, from the United Nations, whose armies rape and pillage communities, hide weapons for Hamas, are extremely wasteful in their spending mostly United States taxpayer money and are mostly a bunch of socialists and communists.
They have no creditability, just as the climate change believers have no creditability and those who follow them are just like sheep- they follow and have no mind of their own.

This Will Fail

From the LVRJ:  CBS officials talked about an all-women sports show for more than a year, and now they’re set to make television history.
The network announced Tuesday that “We Need to Talk” will premiere Sept. 30 on CBS Sports Network. The weekly, hour-long, prime-time program on the cable channel will be the first of its kind.
The panel will feature a core of CBS Sports announcers: Lesley Visser, Amy Trask, Tracy Wolfson, Dana Jacobson and Allie LaForce. Other contributors include Andrea Kremer and former athletes Laila Ali, Lisa Leslie, Dara Torres, Swin Cash and Summer Sanders.
“I think it’s long overdue,” CBS Sports president David Berson said in a phone interview with The Associated Press. “We’re excited to be the home for it, and all these women have such meaningful roles already within CBS or in various other places. I know they’re all excited.”
There's a reason why this hasn't happened before- no one thinks it will be successful.
This doesn't mean the hosts are dull and incompetent- they aren't.
But no one watches female sports.
Hardly anyone watches the WNBA, so little in fact that they are only seen on cable TV and the arena's are half full at best.  Boys high school basketball can outdraw them.
The LPGA has horrible ratings that except for the majors,  you can't watch them. 
And those are the 2 most popular female sports.
Most people don't care about women's sports, with the exception of lesbians and men who watch them because they think the women are hot.  You don't get many people watching women sports for the quality of play.
So, I think this program will last about a year and that's it.

Update: Shooting Instructor Dies

From the LVRJ: An instructor who was shot by a 9-year-old girl who fired an Uzi at a northwestern Arizona shooting range died Monday night at University Medical Center in Las Vegas.
The girl fired the weapon at the outdoor range that caters to heavy tourism traffic along U.S. Highway 93 between Las Vegas and the Grand Canyon Skywalk.
Highway signage and Internet advertising beckons visitors to stop in, fire a machine gun and enjoy a meal at the Bullets and Burgers enterprise at the Last Stop, about 25 miles south of Las Vegas.
The Mohave County Sheriff’s Office said the accidental shooting occurred about 10 a.m. Spokeswoman Trish Carter said the girl, who was vacationing from New Jersey with her parents, was standing next to the instructor at the time.
Mohave County Sheriff Jim McCabe described a video taken of the accident as “ghastly.” His office released a short video of the girl taking her first few shots.
He said the girl safely and successfully fired the 9 mm weapon several times when it was set in the “single-shot” mode.
He said the weapon was put into the “fully-automatic” mode before the girl fired again with the instructor standing off to her left. The weapon recoiled and drifted left as the girl squeezed off an undetermined number of rounds as she maintained possession but lost control of the Uzi as it raised up above her head.
“The guy just dropped,” McCabe said of shooting instructor Charles Vacca, 39, of Lake Havasu City, who suffered at least one gunshot to the head.
I am going to let the experts on guns debate whether or not the girl should have been shooting.
Instead, I am going to focus on the fact the that there were 2 Arizona Highway Patrol officers near the shooting, who were escorting an oversized truck and the cops apparently failed to stop and render aid or help secure the scene until the Mohave Sheriff arrived on the scene.
To recap, my wife and I were on our way to Las Vegas when we saw a Mohave sheriff's deputy go by us around Chloride, AZ, which is about 25 miles from the scene and the 2nd deputy passed us just pass Dolan Springs, about 10 miles from the shooting scene.
We kept on going and within a few minutes of passing the shooting scene, we passed the 2 highway patrol officers, 2 pilot vehicles and a large truck carry a bridge span.
As we passed the scene, we saw the victim, ambulance, 2 sheriff's deputies and the ambulance, waiting for the rescue helicopter. ( I also wonder why the helicopter took so long to get to the scene)
So, my question is why didn't the Highway Patrol officers stop the truck, go to the scene and provide needed first aid, secure the scene and assist in anyway possible?
It is questionable as to why the patrol was even needed to escort the truck.  The lead pilot car was at least a mile ahead of the truck, making it ineffective, the truck was on a 2 lane highway with plenty of passing room on the left, so much so that big rigs were able to pass it, and they had a pilot car with the needed lights  behind the truck.
While Mohave County will investigate the shooting, it also seems that the highway patrol officer's actions should also be investigated. 
Could the outcome be changed?
I don't know, but what happens. if the same situation happens again, will the AZ Highway Patrol respond the same way or would they stop and render aid?
RIP to the victim and prayers for the girl who will have to live with this for the rest of her life.

Well, Good For Her

Well, there is at least person standing up against Iiis.
From Breitbart: Egyptian feminist Aliaa Magda Elmahdy, 23, challenges the strict nature of Islam on her blog and Facebook pages. She went a step further in her protest against the Islamic State (IS) with a photo of Elmahdy and a veiled woman pooping and menstruating on the black IS flag.
Arab nations did not print the photo because the flag states “there is no God but Allah.” Elmahdy did not explain why she took the photo, but she protests Islamic laws, and IS implements strict Sharia Law. Women must wear full veils and not leave the house without a male relative. The jihadists have even forced shopkeepers to fully veil all mannequins. In Raqqa, Syria, an Islamic State stronghold, a crowd stoned two women to death for allegedly committing adultery.
The majority of Muslims do not agree with IS. Several prominent Muslim leaders and scholars have condemned the terrorist group. However, not everyone agreed with Elmahdy’s photo, including fellow liberal Muslims.
In 2011, she caused outrage among strict and liberal Muslims when she posed nude in photos on her Facebook. She claimed the photos “scream against a society of violence, racism, sexism, sexual harassment and hypocrisy.” The secular Muslims did not agree.
“This hurts the entire secular current in front of those calling themselves the people of virtue,” said secularist Sayyed el-Qimni. "It's is a double disaster. Because I am liberal and I believe in the right of personal freedom, I can't interfere."
Well, at least she has the guts to take on isis and is clear on what she thinks about those horrible thugs.
Unlike to so-called leader of the free world.

So, Will Obama Send Any Aides To Slain Police Chief's Funeral?

President racist Obama decided to send 3 White House aides to the thug, Michael Brown's funeral, which was held today.
From Fox News:
The White House sent three officials to attend Monday's funeral for Michael Brown in St. Louis -- three more than it sent for former British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher's funeral last year. 
The administration's handling of the Brown funeral already has started to raise comparisons between the two. 
No White House officials, though, were part of the presidential delegation sent last year to Thatcher's funeral. For that, the White House sent former secretaries of State George Schultz and James Baker III -- as well as the charge d'affaires to the U.K. and the former U.S. ambassador.
Late last week, the police chief of Elmendorf, Texas was murdered in cold blood while he tried to arrest a tagger.
From My San Antonio: Michael Pimentel, chief of police in Elmendorf, received a phone call just after 9 a.m. last    Tuesday from the city's water administrator, who reported that a marked city vehicle had been tagged at the city cemetery.
In an arrest warrant affidavit, Pimentel detailed how he investigated the case himself and concluded that Joshua Manuel Lopez, 24, was the vandal.
Four days later, authorities said, Lopez shot Pimentel to death at a traffic stop.
Now, Lopez is in the Bexar County Jail, facing a charge of capital murder of a police officer in addition to the graffiti charge. His bail exceeds $1 million.
The Bexar County Sheriff's Office is investigating the Saturday incident, near Lopez's home on South First Avenue, that culminated in Pimentel's death. Detectives have not determined whether Pimentel was serving the graffiti warrant when he was shot, said Rosanne Hughes, BCSO spokeswoman.
So, how many aides will Obama send to the Chief's funeral?
Probably the same number as Obama's IQ: 0

We Finally Did It, We Ate At The Huge Caeser's Buffet

Image result for picture of a buffet
Since it opened, my wife and I always wanted to eat at the Bacchanal at Caeser's Palace in Las Vegas.
It is regarded as the best and highest priced in Las Vegas.  We went there tonight as a 5th anniversary present to us and it was a well deserved after a day of going to the doctors all day long.
With tax, the buffet costs a little more than $55 per person.  for 2 of us, the bill was $110.241.  Luckily, they knocked off the $.001.  If you use the Caeser's player's card, you get a whole dollar off.
So, who was it and was it worth $55 a person.
We got there at 5:30 and there was no line, meaning no waiting.  At about 6:30, a line started, with about 40 people in line.  If you eat on the strip, if you don't want to wait, go before about 6:30 because after that, all the conferences and conventions end and the tours to places like the Grand canyon come back.
The service at Bacchanel was excellent.  Here is a tip for those eating at buffets- don't add the tip to the bill or pre-pay the tip.  You get better service if the staff have to earn the tip instead of knowing one is coming.
As far as the food, there were some very good items, like the Waygu sliders.
There were some bad food items, like some of the Chinese food because the meat had a lot of fat on it.
The shrimp were extra large and you can get large crab legs, cold or steamed.  I like the crab legs whole but they cut them in half and it was difficult to pull the meat out.
The carving station had lamb, turkey, prime rib, ham and sausage.  The lamb and ribs were pretty good and the prime rib was ok, tender but a little fatty.
This is also the first time I have been to a buffet that did not have a salad bar.
The dessert section was quite good, but not much different than other high end buffets in Vegas.
They had numerous other items, but since I only had so much room in my stomach, I could only try so much.
Was the food good.  Yes.
Was it worth $55?
I have been to the Wynn, Bellagio and the M buffets in town and all are cheaper than Caesers.
They also have a comparable buffet.  They all have a good carving station, sides and different ethnic stations.
Maybe the Bacchanel has larger shrimp and crab legs but that's about it.
So, I think the Wynn has the best Buffet overall.
The M has the best buffet for the money.
Caesers has the service.
The Bellagio is very good but not great.
Now, time to go to sleep and sleep off the full tummy.
