According to Reuters' Sam Youngman, Santorum told a young man at South Lanes Bowling and Pizza in La Crosse to avoid using the femininely colored ball. "You're not going to use the pink ball," the former Pennsylvania senator said. "We're not gonna let you do that. Not on camera."At the prompting of another reporter, Santorum also quipped, "friends don't let friends use pink balls."
So finally the truth is revealed. In one big swoop we've discovered that not only is Rick Santorum a closet Homophobe, but he also came up with the best campaign slogan for his non-contraceptives campaign. You too can have 'Blue Balls', vote for Santorum. Abstinence is a straighter color.... Pun intended. How about: Go blue or go hide in a closet.
What are blue balls? What exactly happens when a guy gets blue balls? Or is this just a myth? Blue balls are not just a figment of a male's imagination or a lame excuse to try and get you in the sack. Though it doesn't happen to all men, it is a very real condition that results from a prolonged state of sexual arousal. When a guy is physically turned on, blood flows to his penis, which is what gives him an erection, and his testicles, causing them toswell. If he doesn't ejaculate, there is a buildup of pressure, and his supersensitive balls feel the brunt of it. The sensation can range from a mild ache to worse-than-getting-kicked-in-the-crotch pain. But thebottom line is, it's not dangerous, and he can deal with it, whether that means giving himself a helping hand or just waiting it out. The blood will eventually drain, and any discomfort will disappear on its own. In case you were wondering, it's called blue balls because the blood that's been in the scrotum for a while loses oxygen and can give the appearance of a bluish tinge -- although it sounds like something guys came up with to express just how sad they are that they can't come!  According to
Simply astonishing these candidates these days. It's freaking 2012, and here's this idiot running for President trying to ruin a young person's mind with old school homophobic jokes. Why not tell the kid if you pull out, the girl can't get pregnant, you ingrate. What next Rick, want to insult the Jews, or the Polish too.

"If I had a son, he'd look like Trayvon." Obama said, underscoring how the issue affected him on a personal level. "I think [Trayvon's parents] are right to expect that all of us as Americans are going to take this with the seriousness it deserves, and we are going to get to the bottom of exactly what happened."
After the President's brilliant commentary about the tragedy of  the Trayvon Martin indecent, one would think that they would at least keep the politics out of this event. Perhaps use the tragedy as a way to fight for the repeal of the "Stand Your Ground" defense. But instead we simply get stupidity. The unholy duo Gingrich and Santorum, each came out against the beautiful sentiment by using the tragedy as a political event. 
"It's not a question of who that young man looked like," he said. "Any young American of any ethnic background should be safe, period. We should all be horrified, no matter what the ethnic background. Is the president suggesting that, if it had been a white who'd been shot, that would be OK, because it wouldn't look like him? That's just nonsense."  Newt Gingrich
"What the president of the United States should do is try to bring people together, not use these types of horrible tragic individual cases to try to drive a wedge in America."  Rick Santorum
How despicable can you get.  How low can you go.

How sad, now that Facebook has cemented itself as the way the world communicates, organizes, and changes the very structure of societies, its nowalso gonna now be its chief aid to investigating perspective employees. Huh, how did that happen? When?
How did a simple hobby, a fun way to kill time, a great way to keep in touch with family and friends, become the latest way for people to invade your privacy. To investigate if you are worthy of their measly low pay jobs.
So now when applying for a job, your new employer requires your Facebook 'password' , really. Huh, and why? I kind of understand why they need your financial information, we wouldn't want a secret millionaire working for us. I mean we should have complete  power over our workers shouldn't we. But your Facebook password? Why do you need to learn how many friends that you have, and who they are? Give me a break. It's scary enough when politicians discuss allowing employers the power over their employees medical coverage. But now they want our passwords to our Facebook accounts. In a word, no. How dare they?
Talk about the destruction of free speech, the ramifications to the very fabric of our way of life if this request becomes the norm. People have put their most personal information on Facebook. Some possibly are on, 24/7. Now I understand the logic in this, employees want to see what and who they are hiring. See if they might be interviewing a crazed terrorist. A person with shall we say an unsavory past with bad connections.
And there's one big, big problem that has nothing to do with just the Facebook privacy issues, the real big problem could be even worse. Survey after survey showcase that most people only use one password for everything. So if you are forced to give up your password, in theory that means they can get into everything you are linked up to. For example, your bank accounts, scared yet?
And I'm very happy that U.S. Sen. Richard Blumenthal said that such a practice is an "unreasonable invasion of privacy for people seeking work." And intelligently he continued:"These practices seem to be spreading, which is why federal law ought to address them. They go beyond the borders of individual states and call for a national solution," said Blumenthal, who first spoke to Politico on Wednesday. The AP also reported this week that some private and public agencies around the country are asking job seekers for their social media credentials.
Finally the Internet is doing what it seems best suited to to. Unite the people's are our world. Bringing the world closer then ever before. Helping people improve their lives. Changing our world for the better, in fact as history has already showcased, bringing freedom to millions of people around the world. Again I can understand the logic of perspective employers wanting to learn about who they might be hiring, but I'm sorry this is simply too intrusive. I'm sorry job offerers' if you want that information, you're just gonna have to wait till a crime occurs. And you won't get the information anyway, the police would.

"Well, I think you hit a reset button for the fall campaign. Everything changes. It's almost like an Etch a Sketch. You can kind of shake it up and we start all over again."
Eric FehrnstromMitt Romney's top adviser, on CNN Wednesday morning made possibly the worst political gaffe of this entire campaign season. Basically saying that the positions taken by the former Massachusetts governor during the GOP primary campaign were as erasable as a drawing on an Etch a SketchThe obvious problem is that the analogy hits the bulls-eye when describing Mitt's changing pronouncements.
And the ironies that Bain Capital, Romney's old company which specialized in profits for management by outsourcing America jobs overseas; also took over Ohio Art's, the company that makes the Etch a Sketch products. And the irony here of course being that possibly for the rest of his life, Romney might be known at the Etch a Sketch failure.

The sponsor of an Idaho mandatory ultrasound bill, state Sen. Chuck Winder, made some highly controversial comments Monday. Winder, a Republican from Boise, responded to those concerns by raising the question of whether women understand when they have been raped.
"Rape and incest was used as a reason to oppose this," Winder said on the Senate floor. "I would hope that when a woman goes in to a physician with a rape issue, that physician will indeed ask her about perhaps her marriage, was this pregnancy caused by normal relations in a marriage or was it truly caused by a rape. I assume that's part of the counseling that goes on."
Enough already..., when will these idiots stop thinking they know best when it comes to women's health issues. And why are don't all those who spout off just shut the hell up. I'm sorry none of these politicians have any medical background. None are doctor's. None have medical anything. Ok, yes, some might have watched ER once or twice. They don't even claim they have medical know-how.

How great are former Presidents' Jimmy Carter and Bill Clinton, they are so great that ... instead of easing up and enjoying a well deserved retirement, they seemingly zigzag across the globe doing anything they can to help. While we could argue for days and days on their victories in office, we can't really debate each's accomplishments since leaving the White House. Both showcasing how wise the American people can be when deciding who should lead our nation. And you would think that after a lifetime of public service that they would be tired of the political games. But perhaps the facts that they've continued to serve the public good showcases why they wanted to be President in the first place.
My one question in this is, where are the Republicans in this picture. Where are the Bush's both father and son, why haven't they done anything of any service. I can't really complain about the elder Bush, Senior. I mean in his case, he's getting up there in years. But Junior, what's your excuse. Perhaps he's still in hiding about his major screw-up-- s.
They say it's not the greatness in the man that makes them great, it's what you do with that greatness that makes you great... or something like that. Well both former President's showcase seemingly daily how great men can accomplish great things even without the power of the Presidency behind them..
And in an age where seemingly the only great men out there are actors, artists and entertainers it gives me hope that as a society we've been pretty good at picking our leaders. Sometimes good can come out of the political game. And sometimes our politicians deserve applause for their accomplishments and for their continued service.

So President Barack Obama raised a measly $45 million for his re-election bid in February, raising his reported total so far to about $300 million for this election cycle. His totals for February fell short of the $56 million he raised in February 2008. Republicans have already come out and claimed it was a sign of tepid support. Of really. 
Perhaps its really the fact that he's not running against anyone this time around. Perhaps its because he's not on every channel promoting wacky promises like $2.50 gallon of gas if elected. Maybe its cause he's not starring in the weekly comedy sit-com, Republicans Debate. Lets see, could it be that he's not on the front pages everyday, people aren't calling you up hourly asking for your vote. Of course his funds would be less then when he had to face a real test in battle, such as his fight against Hillary Clinton. A battle for the ages. One so far different then the current Republican primary, both in quality of candidate and quality of the conversation.

What happened Mitt, thought you inevitable. That's what I kept hearing from practically everyone. You entered this campaign as if you were the chosen one. You were born for the gig, groomed since childhood to become the most powerful person in the world.
Really? As Gore discovered a few years back, nobody is just handed the gig cause they were born for it.
You have to go out and earn it. And sometimes the man who was destined for it really isn't a good politician and/or the other guy has a few friends in the Supreme Court.
I bring up former Vice President Gore, cause like Romney, both men seem uncomfortable on the campaign stump. Both men seem more like stiff business men then political leaders who are adored and idolized as great leaders. In Gore's case I always felt that he was too stiff. Too good to be true. In Romney's case the stiffness is there, but I'm afraid the 'too good' to be true us no where in sight.
Instead all we get (especially) now is the numbers game. Just because you came in second 4 years ago, doesn't automatically make you this years inevitable champion. Look at Perry, look how much money he was able to amass for his pitiful attempt at running a Presidential campaign. People were willing to give to (we discovered on numerous occasions) a backward thinking inept politician. And remember the world is a much different place then it was the last time you ran. Back then, the world was bleak and hopeless. It was so hopeless and our country was in such a big place that the impossible seemed to happen.
That impossibility , a savior would appear out of nowhere to save us from the abyss actually occurred.
A certain President Obama came out of left field to steal the inevitable candidate of the 2008 campaign. Senator Hillary Clinton, was that years presumptive candidate, just as you were this go-around. And like Obama's surprising popularity, you've got a Santorum to worry about.
But Mitt four years ago you ran as a very different candidate. It seems all the policies you once trumpeted which got you in the position of inevitable candidate for this years run aren't the positions you promote now. So why would you expect the same results. Funny thing is its looking more and more like you could wind up in second this time too. All that money couldn't buy you a ticket for the big November dance.
And just as President Obama had to play the primary game almost all the way to the convention, before he sewed up the election; Mitt Romney looks to be in a fight for every delegate. But unlike the 2006 campaign it seems the longer this race goes, the worse Mitt's chances appear to be.
It's pretty obvious by now why Mitt has spent may of this campaign spending money on ads and doing debates, cause his on the stomp speeches have been pretty pathetic. And the few interviews that he's allowed to have taken place have not only been few and far between, but on numerous occasions rather embarrassing.
So now it appears that your campaigns seems to be teetering on falling over the cliff, me thinks you should step back and rethink your strategy. Whoever is helping you with your perpetration should get fired. I mean we all know how good you are are doing that, right?
Maybe you just aren't the right man for the job. Perhaps you can be the almost candidate, sit back and let Santorum get destroyed in the November sweepstakes. Then you can do what Gore did. Actually continue trying to find a way to help. Then perhaps try it again in 2016.
Heck it's only money.

PRESIDENT GORE 2016 - A LEADER FOR THE APPLE AGE Well lookie lookie here, me thinks (the almost President), former Vice-President Gore has just hit a home run by giving the first political speech of the 2016 Presidential campaign. And for me the timings perfect. In the age of Apple, Steve Job's revolutionary company, has helped change our world into the mobile digital age we are now just really beginning to understand.  And after reading the article by Jake Coyle, published today at HuffingtonPost, Al Gore at SXSW 2012: 'Democracy Has Been Hacked'
AUSTIN, Texas — In a wide-ranging talk about the Internet and government, Al Gore urged the techie crowd at South By Southwest to use digital tools to improve government.The former vice president sat for a conversation with Napster co-founder and Web entrepreneur Sean Parker on Monday at SXSW in a flashy tete-a-tete that drew an audience of thousands at the Austin Convention Center and more viewers via a live stream."Our democracy has been hacked," said Gore, framing Washington gridlock and the effects of special interest money in digital terms. ---
It got me thinking, having to listen to the candidates during this very long, tedious Republican campaign make speech after speech about nonsense. Spouting off made up or backward thinking ideas to the masses. Mostly insulting the masses with their stupity. How wonderful to even read about an intelligent subject discussed by someone who actually knows the facts.Talk about a revolution. Gore see's how the Internet and technology can change the world for the better. And how quickly it can happen.
They called it Arab Spring, let's call it America's Dawning. People keep waiting for something new. Something that could radically alter our future. Something everyone can understand. Perhaps Gore, the 'mocked' creator of the Internet was ahead of his time when he ran for the Presidency [the first time]. Perhaps in the age of the iPhone, Facebook and Twitter; Gore's time has come.
And the timing couldn't be better. Now that the bitterness has worn off, after losing Bush's Supreme Court aided victory, Gore has only continued to grow his story. To increase his stature in our world. And unlike past losers for the job, Gore hasn't disappeared from public view or turned into a pseudo celebrity talking head. He's continued pursuing his truth about global warming and our world's very future. And perhaps the people have finally seen the light. Especially with the mind boggling attempt to dumb down our history books.
Perhaps after President Obama's second term in office. After he has achieved many more of his goals. Correcting and continuing America's resurgence. Righting the ship, as it were. Perhaps our next President logically should be a technically inclined fellow. Especially one with a brain in his head. And his world experience for the job, would beat anybody's. And unlike the most recent inhabitants of the position, Gore
definitely would come in with the experience.

"I got the chance after I lost to John McCain last time, to go over to -- that was the good part of losing -- I got to go to the Olympic Games in China. It's pretty impressive over there how quickly they can build things, how productive they are as a society. You should see their airport compared to our airports, their highways, their train systems. They're moving quickly in part because the regulators see their job as encouraging private people. It's amazing. The head of Coca-Cola said the business environment is friendlier in China than in America. And that's because of the regulators. That's because of government."
Another zinger from Mitt Romney. This was his answer , last Friday,  to a question about government regulation was in a league of its own. Simply astonishing. Sure, if our Government and/or communism took over, and we didn't have this never-ending discussion about our national debt, then perhaps we could be like China too.

So Super Tuesday wasn't so super for Mitt, Rick, Newt, and especially for Ron. As none of the above took real control of the race. Mitt still is in the drivers seat. Rick actually is doing rather quite well, but probably can't pass Mitt's lead. Newt finally had his big win, he has no chance in Hell, but is now only in it (supposedly) to ruin Mitt's chances. Ron, dear Ron I'm sorry but it's time to put up the gloves. There is no way that you you can win, so please give up. I mean I think I figured your plan to get the nomination, but it's so in the realm of fantasy it's next to impossible to even imagine. Let's see, you limp along, acquiring a delegate here a delegate there while the three stooges to your right (pun intended) make fools of themselves all the way up to a convention fight. And there at the big party, you'd meander your way to the nomination. Sorry Ron, even if it goes to the convention you won't be the pick. Me thinks we have a Bush sitting around waiting for the chance to beat his brother's replacement. Or perhaps a little known Governor from New Jersey. 
So Super Tuesday has come and gone and still no nominee. And the biggest news of the day was the apparent divorce between Super Bowl MVP QB Peyton Manning and The Indianapolis Colts. Sending shock waves throughout the world of the NFL, and thru the fantasies of the fans of the - New York Jets or any of the other teams out there willing to spend millions on the chance that the returning quarterback will be pain free and his old self. I mean we are talking millions.
How sad, and how logical. Another fantasy to think about, instead of the truth of the hand that the republicans have been dealt this election cycle. So of course, Peyton Manning leaving The Colts would make the most noise. I mean isn't football more important then the real world.
According all the sports cable TV stations, Peyton Manning will be available to QB any team who has the money to pay him. That includes the New York Jets. The question being is Peyton ready and healthy enough to play full time, at his old level. And is he a good fit with The Jets. Remember 
The Jets already have one. There you have it. Me thinks more people are gonna be interested in the outcome of the Peyton Manning sweepstakes then the eventual Republican candidate.

Sorry about the delay in getting this out, but since my last entry honestly nothing out there has gotten my blood boiling or in this case my fingers typing. A week has gone by since my last entry into this blog and well, nothing really got me riled up enough to write more then a paragraph or two. Not that nothing of interest or newsworthiness hasn't happened. Another weeks worth of primaries to discuss. We got several idiotic statements by the usual culprits, but more of the same. 
The Academy handed out it's big awards and in the age of technical marvels, a silent black and white film grabbed top honors. While in my humble opinion the best film of the year, wasn't even nominated. Rise of the Planet of the Apes while a technical marvel, unlike The Artist. And it also had possibly the best performance by an actor, John Lithgow was simply amazing. And don't get me started on the cartoons... TinTin, while one of the best pictures of the year wasn't even nominated for animation's top honors. I must say that Meryl Streep's big win did make my heart sing. Can't wait to see what she's got next for our viewing pleasure.
The revelations that Rick Santorum revealed on Chris Wallace's Fox News Sunday program truly showcased his strong beliefs. When questioned about his charitable donations Santorum explained, that he had to pay for his disabled child's care out of pocket. His insurance company wouldn't cover it. So instead of giving to charities he paid for medical bills. You would think this would make him stop and think about the millions who aren't so financially lucky as him. You would think that anyone who was running for President, especially one who personally has to deal with this would be more warm to insurance for all.
Discovering that Rick Santorum who wants to rid our country of Public Education, was paid, by the government to home school his own kids was to say the least interesting.
Here comes the war talk... the fact that there seems to be the inevitable ascent to war coming when we discuss Iran and its 'supposed' nuclear threat could have been a column or two; but honestly I've seen this story before. Luckily we have a President whose really in charge and has proven he's not someone you should get into a fight with.

Looks like the crazy worked. Thanks Rick for the show. There you have it. I finally figured out the theme of this chapter of the campaign; make Mitt Romney seem like the sane man in the room. Showcase the crazy in the rest, till Mitt squeaks in. And Santorum you've been great. Rick all that crazy Church and State stuff is working. It's really getting those liberal leftist Democrats riled up and angry. And please keep it coming with the 'contraception' talk, I bet that'll do wonders with the female vote. And pretty please keep up the wide-eyed crazy zealous grin on that face of yours. Each time you do it I imagine you as a kid in school, happily dissecting frogs in science class. Of course listening to the crazy Rick Santorum has been spouting, it seems he must have missed the 'biology' classes.
So just as it seems as if Mitt
's future chances of life in the White House had slipped thru his fingers, somehow 'he' clutched victory from defeat. Watch before the day is out we'll be hearing how this was the primary that Mitt really began the launch of his campaign. Finally the Romney we've waited for has arrived. 

Coming up next... Super Tuesday. Boy oh boy am I not excited about this. More B.S. predictions. More late nights listening to garbage, programmed dialogs by the talking head so-called experts.
