Comcast could change everything
 Will they have the brains to dump Conan?


Comcast plans to buy a majority stake in NBC for $13.75 billion, giving the nation's largest cable TV operator
control of the TV network, an array of cable channels and a major movie studio.

Although the deal could mean that movies could reach cable more quickly after showing in theaters,
and that TV shows could appear faster on cell phones and other devices, it was already raising concerns
that Comcast would wield too much power over entertainment.  Indeed, if the deal clears regulatory
and other hurdles, Comcast would rival the heft of  Disney.

Comcast, which already serves a quarter of all U.S. households that pay for TV, would gain control of t NBC,
Telemundo and about two dozen cable channels, including USA, Bravo and Syfy. It also would have regional
sports networks, Universal Pictures and theme parks.

The deal is a major turning point for Comcast, catapulting them to a media conglomerate
and above the pack of cable operators that remain content to run their regional cable systems.

It's all changing, right before our eyes.
The networks are going to take a back seat to whatever's next on the internet.

Will we have "TV shows" ten years from now?
Will we have movies?

"All American progressives should unite for Barack Obama. We are pleased that Hillary Clinton has been 
  responsive to the tide of voter opinion this year, and we applaud the possibility of at last electing an American 
  woman President. But progressives should be disturbed by her duplicitous positions on Iraq and NAFTA...
  The Clintons ushered in the Wall Street Democrats whose deregulation ethos has widened inequality while 
  leaving millions of Americans without their rightful protections against market shocks...A Clinton victory 
  could only be achieved by the dashing of hope among millions of young people on whom a better future depends."  
       -- Tom Hayden, March, 2008,   Link    

"It's time to strip the Obama sticker off my car. Obama's escalation in Afghanistan is the last in a string of disappointments. 
  His flip-flopping acceptance of the military coup in Honduras has squandered the trust of Latin America. His Wall Street 
  bailout leaves the poor, the unemployed, minorities and college students on their own. And now comes the Afghanistan
  -Pakistan decision to escalate the stalemate, which risks his domestic agenda, his Democratic base, and possibly even 
  his presidency...To be clear: I'll support Obama down the road against Sarah Palin, Lou Dobbs or any of the pitchfork 
  carriers for the pre-Obama era. But no bumper sticker until the withdrawal strategy is fully carried out."

 Subject: no way Tiger is in trouble

 Bart -

 No way tiger is in criminal trouble. A basic careless driving citation is the worst he would get which is a civil penalty.
 But assuming he would get a reckless driving (a criminal traffic offense in Florida), he would at worst get a withhold of adjudication and court costs.

 You might be right.
 When the police explained their decision to whitewash everything, it sounded like it was written by Tiger's PR people.
 But if you or I were behind the wheel while falling in and out of consciousness, we'd be arrested for damn sure.

 His career is not in trouble. He might have to take a few tourneys off to heal and deal with the side stuff,
 but before long he will be back on the links. I don't see him losing any significant sponsorships on this either.

 Dude, seriously?
 You must've written that earlier in the week.

 His marriage might be in trouble but if you think he got into this without an airtight prenup you're crazy.
 If divorced he would likely have to pay a few token million and that's that (a nice problem to have, isn't it?).
 Unless there's a fidelity clause which some celebs get.

 Honestly this is just run of the mill celeb-u-tard BS.

 Mr. Perfect, Mr. Billionaire, is now just another run of-the-mill celebrity?
 I take it you're a big Tiger fan.

 Everyone is just blowing it up because Eldrick is Golf Jesus and never did anything wrong ever in his friggin life.
  Chris in FL
 (a criminal lawyer, so im not completely full of shit)

 In BCR 160 I said I doubted the multiple cheating stories were true because he's just too famous.
 But he was finally exposed when one girlfriend was jealous she didn't get a trip to Australia.

 Plus, that Jaimee Grubb got $150K to rat out Tiger.
 How many other Tiger girls could use an extra $150K?

Tiger in Trouble Quotes

  than he is. I would probably need to apologize to her and hope she uses a driver next time instead of the 3-iron."
   --  Jesper Parnevik, who introduced his nanny, Elin, to an up-and-coming young go-getter named Eldrick,    Link

In Association with

Worse Than Bush 
 stupidity from Mike Whitney


George Bush never pretended to be something he wasn't. The same cannot be said for Barack Obama. Obama exploited 
the persona of a reformer to the maximum extent. And it worked. He rode into the White House on a wave of public enthusiasm. 
As soon as he was sworn in, he kicked the left to the curb, expanded the War on Terror, and reinforced the regressive policies 
of the Bush bastards. That last speech was just the icing on the cake. It exposes Obama as a fraud and a hypocrite. 
The policy has not changed at all. In fact, it is getting worse...

Worse than Bush's double invasions to revenge-murder and steal the assets of other nations?

Everyone who voted for Obama needs to accept responsibility for the gratuitous violence about to befall the Afghan people. 
You voted for him. The blood is on your hands.

Afghanistan was an ugly disaster long before any of us knew who Obama was.
Is your case so weak that you have to lie and distort to make a point?

Obama's public approval ratings are dropping like a stone. The glitz and the glamor are beginning to wear-thin. 
Now he's just another homicidal maniac disguised as a respected world leader. 

Dude, you write some crazy shit.

As far as I know, Obama hasn't killed anybody yet and Bush holds the modern Western Hemisphere record
for killing while masturbating to murder so throttle back your hyper-enthusiastic "worse than Bush" horseshit.

I'm disappointed too, but getting rid of Obama isn't a plan I can get onboard with.

 Subject: Re: Marc Perkel and Obama's War   (Last issue - Halfway down)

Sorry, Mark, you're wrong on this one. 

It became Obama's war when he threw over the people 
who voted for him and escalated a war he said he would end. 
His performance has been pretty dismal - he's Bush lite. 

Who the hell am I gonna vote for in 2012??
 Steve in MT

 Subject: Re: Marc Perkel and Obama's War

Perkel's dead effing wrong. Obama just paid for that war with  hundreds more American lives 
and who knows how many thousand Afghans.  Obama could have put his Credit Card of Blood 
back in his wallet and  walked away, and he didn't. Aren't you getting the impression that Obama 
is as big a pussy as W?    With the same outcome-other people's kids die. 

I'm sooooo glad I don't call myself a Democrat any more.

Huckabee freed the child rapist
 You know why - because Gold told him to...
  by Gene Lyons


Another week, another grotesque mass shooting: In Washington state this time, leaving four police officers dead, four families 
destroyed and nine children's lives shattered. As it's politically unfashionable to wonder whether Americans shouldn't do more 
to keep semi-automatic handguns away from crazy people, attention soon focused on why mass murderer Maurice Clemmons 
wasn't locked away, where he belonged.

Once again, Mike Huckabee struggled to explain his catastrophically poor judgment. Once again, a violent felon turned loose on 
his say-so had run amok. Once again, according to Huckabee, the disaster was everybody's fault but his own. He issued a 
buck-passing statement blaming "a series of failures in the criminal justice system in both Arkansas and Washington."

Assisted by an absurdly deferential Bill O'Reilly on Fox, Huckabee attempted to shift blame to Washington judges who'd freed 
Clemmons on $150,000 bail pending trial for child rape.  (Imagine O'Reilly's reaction had Huckabee been a Democrat.)

This almost surely marks the end of Huckabee's political career

 Subject: Filibuster Rule must Die

In spite of what you hear in the news it does not take 60 votes in the Senate to pass a bill. 
It is not in the Constitution nor are there any laws that require 60 votes. The 60 vote barrier 
is an obscure Senate rule called the filibuster which requires 60 votes to end debate and get to a vote. 
This is a rule that can be changed.

In 2005 when Democrats used the filibuster Republican threatened to end the practice in a move called 
the "nuclear option" which is a procedure for changing the filibuster rule. The mere threat of ending the filibuster 
caused the Democrats to back down from using it. Now the Democrats have a far larger majority in the Senate 
than the Republicans did and the Republicans are filibustering almost every bill. Their strategy seems to be to get
America to fail and then run in 2010 on the idea that Democrats are as bad as they are. But the Democrats can
put an end to the Filibuster and bring back majority rule as the Constitution intended.

So we don't really need 60 votes to pass health care reform. We only need 50. 
It's time the Democrats get tough and use the power that the People elected them to use. 

We need reform and this rule is in the way. The time has come for Democrats to step up 
and quit acting like they are in the minority and use the nuclear option and put the filibuster down. 

Democrats can't allow the Republicans to steal power in the 2010 election because of a record of failure.

State Marijuana Penalties

Remember Civil Rights?


So sad to read that the New York State Senate voted down the Gay Marriage Bill.
It saddens and sickens me that modern government and society has learned nothing from history 
but continue the vicious cycle of ignorance and intolerance whilst quoting and twisting from a bible 
that at its root, preaches love and understanding and equality for all.

Shame on all those who judge others so harshly that they will rob them of their civil liberties. 
Shame on those who will attempt to strip others of their dignity and their right to walk among us as equals on this earth.
Shame on those who teach our children to discriminate and hate.
Shame on those who stand in government and preach about morality and the sanctimony of marriage whilst fucking around 
   on their wives with underage girls or boys, men or women, prostitutes or rent boys.
Shame on those who dare to profess an exact knowledge of what god intended marriage to be.
Are they so arrogant that they believe god is in agreement with their every thought and opinion?

Give me a fucking break.

Mike Malloy Live

Palin particularly popular w/ crazies


Palin may or may not run for president in 2012, but she is already the big favorite in the Limbaugh/ Beck primaries
In a new WaHoPo poll, Palin beats other GOP leaders on two questions: who best represents the party's core values, 
and who Republicans would vote for if the presidential nomination battle were held today. But she has particular appeal 
to the loyal followers of handjobs Limbaugh and Beck, two of the most popular douchebags in the country. 

Overall, 18 percent of Republicans and GOP-leaning independents cited her as the person most representative of the 
party's core values, the highest percentage among prominent Republican figures. Among those who regularly listen to 
Limbaugh, however, Palin was cited by 48 percent, and among Beck's viewers, it was 35 percent, far surpassing others.

I used to think it was funny that the insane birther handjobs would take over the GOP - now I'm not sure.
They live in an alternate universe, where water freezes at 42 degrees.

How do we deal with these aliens who see Rush, Beck and Palin as their futures?

Cardinal: No Heaven for gays
 So all those priests are going to Hell?


Homosexuals and transsexuals "will never enter the kingdom of heaven", a leading Roman Catholic cardinal said on Wednesday.
Cardinal Javier Lozano Barragan said that while the Church regarded homosexuality as an "insult to God", this did not justify 
discrimination against gay and transsexual people.

No, you just want them to burn for eternity.

"Transsexuals and homosexuals will never enter the kingdom of heaven and it is not me who says this, but Saint Paul," 
the cardinal said, in comments reported by the Ansa news agency.

"People are not born homosexual, they become homosexual, for different reasons: education issues or because they did not 
develop their own identity during adolescence. It may not be their fault, but acting against nature and the dignity of the
human body is an insult to God," he said.

Why isn't God smart enough to come up with a plan that doesn't blame the victims?

This publicity-whore cardinal admits you can be gay and innocent, but he wants them punished, anyway.
This is the same idiotic reasoning that gave us "Original Sin," which is church-speak for 
"You owe everything to the Church because Jesus died for YOUR sins 2,000 years ago."

Hey, who asked him to?

The Catholics are the homeless man who spits on your windshield, pushes it around with a squeegie
and then claims you owe him money for a task you never asked him to perform.

No wonder people are rejecting this craziness by the billions.

How Tiger can recover


First off, he needs to quit blaming the media.
Blaming someone else for his own failures isn't going to win him any lasting sympathy.
The whole "I did wrong but it's also your fault for publicizing it" approach is cheap and just skirts the real issue.

He needs to go on "Oprah" and do a Barbara Walters special. He needs to appear with his wife, Elin, at his side
-- assuming, of course, she's staying. He needs to get new images of himself out in public to counteract the sound
of a desperate cheater on that voicemail.  He needs to open every door, tell every tale, lay out the truth.

If he wants this to go away and yet still retain some of his dignity and his image, he needs to open every door now.
He needs to go on David Letterman's show, for obvious reasons.

Letterman handled his crisis the right way - he pre-empted his accusers.
Not only that, he was able to make himself out to be a sympathetic victim.

Letterman's mea culpa was October 1.

Tiger can't remember what to do 60 days later?
