NEWS & CURRENT EVENTS
The confirmation hearings for Judge Sonia Sotomayor have so far yielded little surprises. Republicans are stuck on stupid repeating the same off-hand “wise Latina” comment she made a few years ago because they really have nothing else against the most qualified person to ever be nominated for the Supreme Court. It’s always weird when white people pull the race card. No other sitting Supreme Court Judge has more actual trial experience than she does; sorry but there is no getting around that Republicans, and if you wanna waste your time harping on an already well seasoned point then by all means go ahead, I’ll just watch Cartoon Network for a while and just click back to CNN when you ask something relevant.
One thing I am concerned about, is that at times Sotomayor seems a bit uneasy, almost nervous. I would be too if I had to answer 8 hours of questions by these tired old gasbags, but your achievements speak for themselves already, show a little more poise. I’m not suggesting that you tell Jeff Sessions to go fuck himself, just remember who you are.
A plane crashed in Iran yesterday, killing all 153 passengers and 15 crew members on board. Instead of comforting those who lost loved ones in the crash, what does that asshole Mahmoud Ahmadinejad do? He actually blames the crash on the United States! Saying that sanctions against Iran have kept them from getting repair parts. Never mind that it was a Caspian Airlines plane, consisting of Russian made Tupolev jets. I guess it’s easier to ignore the facts and blame the US than it is to actually fix the problem. I’m so glad no one takes this maniac seriously.
Look at Cuba, we have had sanctions against them for nearly 50 years, and you don’t see them blaming us for anything. I saw a documentary once where a guy in Cuba made brake pads out of cookie dough.
Michael Jackson’s death a homicide? Are you kidding? Just another example of how star-fucked the LAPD is. Unless someone forcibly put the drugs in his system, that’s gonna be hard to prove. Let's hope they come to their senses. And even more pathetic is the lesser known Jacksons like LaToya and Tito selling stories to British tabloids about how they feel that Michael was murdered. Seriously LaToya how screwed up do you have to be to be known as the crazy one in the Jackson family? I really hope Michael Jackson’s death does not spawn a bunch of crazed conspiracy theorists saying that “he is still alive, he just went back to the mothership,” or something like that.
At this point, this whole “everyone is dropping dead” shit is getting weird. This time it’s Arturo Gatti, dead at only 37. For those of you who don’t know who he was, you really missed out on watching one of the most entertaining fighters ever. This was a guy that was always in shape, and never quit if he got hit. Something that “next big things” like Golden Boy’s Victor Ortiz might learn something from. His wars with Ivan Robinson and Mickey Ward were legendary. I was happy to see him retire with all his marbles and some money in his pocket. He fought too hard for too long and had he gone on he really could have hurt himself, I guess that’s a moot point now.
However his death does further illustrate a point I made last week. At this time, police in Brazil are holding his wife Amanda Rodrigues as the prime suspect in his murder.
See…this is why you don’t let crazy into your house!
And did you know that the Yankees played the Angels the Saturday before the All-Star Game? It wasn’t on TV anywhere, what’s that all about?
Speaking of the All-Star Game, I think it’s obvious that Fox is so biased that they couldn’t even show Barack Obama throwing out the first pitch and getting it to the plate. So what if it was a bit low, it still got there.
THIS WEEK’S REASON WHY TERRORISTS WANNA KILL US
If you go see the new Harry Potter movie with your body and face painted or dressed like one of the characters, you need to die.
