Right Wing Confused

The Lefties over at Bolt’s and Blair’s are getting me confused. Half of them call us rednecks, and the other half call us ‘born to rules’. Aren’t the two stereotypes completely different?

Will someone help me out with this? I know I’m not the only person suffering from this identity crisis!

Stupid AFL Suggestion

Ok, here’s the back story. The Australian Football League wants another two teams in the league to bring in more revenue and generate more support for the game, which is for the most part, based in Victoria with ten Victorian-based teams, two in WA, two in SA, one in Sydney, and one in Brisbane.

The interstate teams (WA, SA, NSW, QLD) have always had their successes on the field, and all teams involved have had some great talent. So Andrew Demetriou, the head of the AFL, is entertaining a proposal for a new team based in Sydney’s Western suburbs.

Now, this is amongst the stupidest ideas I’ve ever read. Demetriou is considering having a faith-based team. Yep, he wants to launch an Irish-based team, which would mostly consist of Protestants.

The problems I see with the proposal are these:

  1. Where does one find some Irish Protestants in Sydney’s western suburbs? It’s an area with a lot of people who believe in God, certainly, but they’re sure not Protestants.
  2. AFL is very much an equalized game. You leave your religion/politics/family heritage/whatever off the ground. On the ground, you play for your team. This idea would mean that now you bring those things onto the ground. Old rivalries will be brought back into the game, and those rivalries are stronger than Everyone vs Collingwood (as hard as that is to believe)…
  3. It sets a precedent. What can the AFL then do if there’s a team of Irish-Catholics who want to play, and then a team of Roman-Catholics, and then a team of Buddhists, a team of Muslims, a team of Pagans and so on down the line? If they’ve got the requisite number of players and the start-up cash, the AFL would have a lot of trouble saying no. Then it turns into a religious game.
  4. Australians don’t much care about other people’s religions, unless they’re attempting to kill us or force them on us. By turning the AFL into something faith-based, they’re ensuring that it makes it harder for the non-religious to give a crap about the game. And for many, their football team is their religion.

Enough is enough Demetriou. You’ve tried to push the “Super-Goal” idea and it failed. You’ve tried to overhaul the AFL Tribunal, and it’s failed for the most part. You’ve tried to discourage drugs from the game, but in paying 21-28 year olds well over $200,000 a year you’ve made that hard because what else are they going to spend their dough on?

But this, this is your stupidest idea yet, and I hope it backfires on you spectacularly. I do hope the HREOC (Human Rights and Equal Opportunity Commission) gets involved, because that would raise this from a farce to a comedy.

UPDATE: Further details have come to light, and the team will not be made up of Irish descendants currently playing AFL in Sydney’s western suburbs. It will be made up of a team of Irish players being brought in from Ireland to boost the game’s international appeal. That puts this in a very different light.

Mullets and Shrimpdinejad, can you count? Israel uses Iraq airspace to test Iran hit

From US bases it would take 5 minutes to reach Iran’s reactor in Bushehr.

An Iraqi website has claimed that Israeli warplanes have been using Iraqi airspace to practice for possible bombing of Iranian nuclear facilities.

Nahrainnet.com, quoting unnamed sources in the Iraqi defense ministry, said that for the past month Israel has been using U.S. bases in Iraq to conduct over flights.

al Arabiya

Defense Ministry spokesman Major General Mohammed al-Askari dismissed the report on Friday.

“We have no information about Israeli jets using Iraqi airspace for rehearsals,” he told AFP.

Another spokesman said: “Reports about putative Israeli air force activities in Iraq are utterly baseless.”

Obama dismisses conservative criticism


“The Republicans jumped on this. I said, absolutely immigrants need to learn English, but we also need to learn foreign languages,”

“I agree that immigrants should learn English,” Obama said. “But instead of worrying about whether immigrants can learn English – they’ll learn English – you need to make sure your child can speak Spanish. You should be thinking about how can your child become bilingual. We should have every child speaking more than one language.”

“You know, it’s embarrassing when Europeans come over here, they all speak English, they speak French, they speak German. And then we go over to Europe and all we can say is ‘merci beaucoup!'” Obama said, laughing.


Let me guess “they all speak English”. You see Obama, they and YOU need to learn Mandarin. It’s the most spoken. PLUS when you meet Kevni Rudd, you can converse privately…Know what I mean…wink wink.

“They speak French”. Typically the French do, smug bastards…even when they know how to speak Mand English. They do it to show themselves the pricks they are.

“They speak German”. Well thanks to a hell of a lot of “English” speakers, we made sure the whole damn Continent didn’t sprechen sie Deutsches?

Speaking of “speaking”…How many are you fluent in, Obama? Beside doublespeak, that is.

Shouting abuse at fat people is not just fun. It’s socially useful AND typically you can outrun them…

Rod Liddle is impressed by David Cameron’s speech in Glasgow and the Tory leader’s call for greater personal responsibility. Antisocial behaviour needs to be stigmatised, not treated as an illness to be cured.

Good for David Cameron. There was a grotesquely fat woman in front of me in the checkout queue at Sainsbury’s this week, so fat I couldn’t see the car park; she looked like 26 Ethiopians, if you put them in a blender, added some bleach and gelatine and then allowed the result to set for 38 years in the fridge. Her trolley was full of prepackaged brown filth, tramp-semen-flavoured nacho chips, pasta shaped into an approximation of Shami Chakrabarti’s face, smothered in sugar and vinegar and tomato sauce and shoved in a tin, and carbonated sugary drinks that would make Jesus belch. Meanwhile, causing a ruckus by the entrance, was her vile lardy brood, a clutch of under ten E.S.N. thromboses waiting to happen, even the youngest of them with a pierced ear. How did they find a sleeper large enough to get through all that earlobe fat, I wondered — through all that reconstituted crispy chicken nugget and salt and sugar and saturated gunk?

Special Shabbat Arrangements for Pres. Peres at Beijing Olympics

(IsraelNN.com) Chinese authorities said they would make unique arrangements for President Shimon Peres so that he can attend the opening ceremony of the 2008 Beijing Olympics without desecrating the Sabbath. Some Israelis and American Jews have said that attendance at the China games under any circumstances would be a violation of Jewish tradition and morality.

The Office of the President officially informed the Chinese Olympics Committee on Thursday that President Peres accepted the invitation to attend the opening events of the Olympics on the evening of August 8. The announcement followed great efforts on the part of the Chinese government and the Olympics Committee to accommodate Shabbat restrictions observed by the President as an official representative of the State of Israel.

Initially, the President’s Office informed Chinese officials that Peres would not be able to be present at the opening event in the stadium, which will take place on a Friday evening, due to the desecration of the Sabbath that would entail. In response, according to a spokesperson from the Office of the President, “The Chinese did not give up and decided, in an unprecedented step, to separate the President of Israel from the other heads of state and to accommodate him in a special hotel which was built within the Olympics compound at a walking distance from the event arena.” Transportation by vehicle is forbidden on the Sabbath according to Jewish religious law and tradition.

In the message conveyed to the Chinese government, President Peres said that he “sees great importance in the strengthening of the relations between Israel and China and in promoting the economic, cultural and security ties.”

Dog Sense…Courtesy, a friend

Have you ever heard that a dog ‘knows’ when an earthquake is about to hit?

Have you ever heard that a dog can ‘sense’ when a tornado is stirring up, even 20 miles away?

Do you remember hearing that before the December tsunami struck Southeast Asia , dogs started running frantically away from the seashore, at breakneck speed?
Do you know that dogs can detect cancer and other serious illnesses and danger of fire?

Somehow they always know when they can ‘go for a ride’ before you even ask and how do those dogs and cats get home from hundreds of miles away?

I’m a firm believer that animals – and especially dogs – have keen insights into the Truth.

And you can’t tell me that dogs can’t sense a potentially terrible disaster well in advance.
Simply said, a dog just KNOWS when something isn’t right .. . when impending doom is upon us . they’ll always try to warn us…. !!

Good News, Bad News…..Toyota to Make Prius in the U.S.


DETROIT — Toyota acknowledged Thursday that, like its rival automakers in Detroit, it misjudged the drastic swing in the American market away from larger vehicles.

With sales of pickups and big S.U.V.’s tumbling, Toyota said it would shut down truck production at two United States plants for three months and consolidate its pickups into one factory next year.

The Japanese automaker also said it would begin making its Prius gas-electric hybrids in a new plant in Mississippi by late 2010 to meet demand for more fuel-efficient vehicles.

More than 4,000 employees will be affected, but the workers will be paid and attend training sessions during the shutdowns.

New York Times

Overall, this should be a plus, with the 4000 employees being paid and trained PLUS with sales of the Prius booming, jobs for those that WANT jobs should be booming soon, as well.
