Ahhhhhhhhh c'mon, meat!!! Boy Baraka is NOT going to attack Syria!!! Jeez..........he's probably jealous of the way Assad is handling all of those stupid people who disagree with him!!! But the Oreo-in-chief (and did you notice that Oreo has come out with a new, rainbow-colored gay filling..............oh jeez, let's NOT even go there on this one, with the 'filling' issue!!!) has a big problem here in the USSA, that Assad doesn't have: the military!!! Assad is intertwined with his military...................Obama is disdained by ours, and I doubt seriously that they would do his dirty work............although there are a lot of 'upper echelon' military types who are as big as queebie-assed commie posers as Boy Baraka, unfortunatly.

To you, my fellow NB’s (those actively routing for the South Carolina to win a third straight NCAA Baseball World Series) despite the loss to ARIZONA, last nights game was one of the finest ever seen in all baseball – especially that 9th inning!
The fans of the Gamecocks have every right to hold their heads high knowing the excellent play and sportsmanship displayed by both teams. The fact that the ARIZONA WILDCATS soundly beat S. Carolina has no bearing on the magnificence of that series ending game where SC went down to ignominious defeat at the hands of ARIZONA.
This is not a time to brag. The fact that ARIZONA won the series in two straight games over S.C. does not mean we (in ARIZONA) are allowed to ‘rub-it-in.’ No my friends, when it comes to sports, we must not allow petty regional identities to stand in the way of true unity… the unity of knowing that the ARIZONA WILDCATS just shattered the feeble regional myth of the ‘unbeatably of SC’ when ARIZONA’S finest college baseball players defeated those other guys (in two-straight games).
Now, I certainly don’t want to make a big deal out of the fact that ARIZONA won the NCAA World Series… and I hope you will join me in putting the win by the ARIZONA WILDCATS in its proper perspective.

When your team wins the Big Enchilada.....it's your duty to point out all of the "buyest" media myths (that's what we call it on the Gator Boards, buyest) about the "shoulda" team. When they call the game before it's played, they almost always get it wrong. Delicious!
Plus you get to brag for a year!!!
While I really don't follow it once the Gators are out of the hunt, I'm glad for USCe that their sports programs are becoming more prominent in the NCAA. I believe a gentleman by the name of Steven O. Spurrier has something to do with that, and while he no longer wears Gator orange & blue, he's still ours, even though he's on loan to the Gamecocks.

It really was a great game. I honestly thought that SC was going to tie it up in the 9th and force an extra inning game... against the World Series Champions ARIZONA WILDCATS.
But I won't be bragging about the fact that the ARIZONA WILDCATS are the NCAA World Series Champions all year... just the next 364 days or so. :o)

When you are making a comment, look below the comment box where it says (in orange) "Switch to rich text editor". Click on that.
A bunch of icons will appear over the comment box. With those, you can do all sorts of things. Highlight the text you want to bold (or italicize, or strike through), then click the icon. The little blue globe creates the hyperlinks, to attach links to your words describing them.
So, to link....you could type: Link to Blonde Gator's blog. <- Then highlight that sentence.Then click the little blue globe, and a box will pop up. Then you would go to the article you want to include, and copy the address, and paste it in the pop-up box. Voila! A link.
P.S. There's a 3rd reason you forgot. "3. I'm blonde".

but you can direct them to open in a new tab (window) by selecting the "Target" button, then the "New Window _blank" from the drop down list. That way you don't leave NB to go to the link.
You can also right click over the hyperlink and select "Open link in new Window/Tab" and accomplish the same thing as the clickee.
At least until it's time to Disqus.

I've got a 20 year old autistic nephew that is pretty sad today. He eats and breaths anything the Gamechickens do. Congrat to the Wildcats. They need something good to happen. After the way the whole state is being treated by Obeyme and Big Sis this might take away some of the sting off of a state they have decided to forget.

I was just thinking about her this morning. This woman deserves an award for perseverence. Man, what she has been through and continues to try to make right for her state's citizens. It's such a mess in Arizonia, and now who knows all that is coming down the pike.
Anyway, the woman must be made of steel. God bless her amd what she deals with on a continual basis. She just never throws in the towel or shrinks back in fear or self-pity -- I admire that.

We in AZ are very lucky to have Jan Brewer as our Governor.
Might I add we are also very fortunate to have "Sheriff Joe" as the most recognized Lawman in the USA (I don't live in his jurisdiction though).
Yes, we are proud of both our Governor and "America's Sheriff" ... Almost as proud as we are of the NCAA World Series Champions: The ARIZONA WILDCATS! (Not that I want to make a big deal out of it).

They have said that ONLY the Federal Government can enforce federal laws. If the Federal Government chooses not to enforce federal laws, there is nothing that the States can do about it. The States (or locals) are not allowed to enforce a federal law that the Federal Government doesn't want to enforce.
So if we have a democrat administration, the imigration laws will not be enforced and we'll have an open border.
If we have a republican administration, does this mean that environmental laws will not be enforced and we'll have an economic boom?
This bizzarre decision seems to set up future challenges from the States for the Federal Government not enforcing laws that are on the books. Is an administration allowed to simply ignore the laws that it disagrees with? What if doing so creates a large financial burden on a few States but not on others?

What environmental laws are you referring to? Surely not the decrees by the EPA?

Saw a guy that I used to work with this morning at the local coffee shop.
He was a liberal sort of guy, but I could stand him in small doses.
He told me that his wife woke him up a few days ago and someone was standing at the foot of their bed in the dark.
I said, "Well did you shoot the son of a bitch?" He said no, that he didn't have a gun ... then.
He does now! A really BIG one.

They were fine. He is very big guy, and apparently when he jumped out of the bed, his wife screamed so loud that the intruder took off! He was a small sized little punk, according to the guy.
He said cops told him that with all the wannabe gangsta's out of school now, one of their initiation rites is entering a house while people are sleeping. This was in a very nice suburb, so they're thinking some of the locals want to be bad asses.
They may end up dead, instead.

Chart from last year.... when it blows,no one needs it...
Oh the power lines in that article you linked are for WIND mills! gawd...
And yet — and yet — the state is spending billions on projects that focus on wind energy rather than on conventional generation capacity. As Kate Galbraith of the Texas Tribune reported recently, the Texas Public Utility Commission is preparing the state’s ratepayers for higher prices. Consumers will soon be paying for new transmission lines that are being built solely so that the subsidy-dependent wind-energy profiteers can move electricity from their distant wind projects to consumers in urban areas.
Imagine what the state’s grid might look like if Texas, which produces about 30 percent of America’s gas, had spent its money on natural-gas-fired electricity instead of wind. The latest data from the Energy Information Administration shows that wind-generated electricity costs about 50 percent more than that produced by natural-gas-fired generators. Thus, not only would Texas consumers be saving money on their electric bills, the state government would be earning more royalties from gas produced and consumed in the state.
Maybe they could change to PV solar power..
You Didn't Build That.

Apparently they are going to re-name Big Ben to Elizabeth Tower in honor of the current Queen.
I just wonder if it will be OK to refer to it as:
Submitted by Scuba Dude on Tue, 06/26/2012 - 1:11pm.
Actually, Big Ben is the name of the clock not the tower. As the other tower in Parliament is named Victoria Tower in recognition of Queen Victoria's Diamond Jubilee (60 years on the throne) the tower that holds Big Ben will be named Elizabeth Tower in recognition of Queen Elizabeths Diamond Jubilee.
Edit: Big Ben is the name of the giant bell located in the tower, not the clock.

All I got from the story is that astronomers/scientists got their strongest radio signal in 1977, coming from the direction of Sagittarius...so some scientist wrote WOW on the print-out. And now 35 years later, they want to send out a bunch of public Tweets in that general direction, in case there are some really smart aliens hanging around to receive them.

The Commiecrats have decided to opne their convention in downtown Charlotte rather than at Charlotte Motor Speedway. Thye say it has nothing to do with money but the liberal rag the Charlotte Observer is saying thye have a 38 million dollar short fall in their fund raising
Now Tester of Montana and McCaskill of Missori have announced they will not be attending the convention. Looks like the WVa delegations is going to be short some big names. I can't understand how anyone in WVa would think about supporting Obeyme the way he is treating coal and all.

As the link to HotAir in the Editor's picks notes, Dems are revising their venue for the opening of the Democratic National Convention from CMS to, well, what appears to be a rundown old barn. I don't know if this is simply because they're out of money, or if it's because they're trying to show us what is coming if Obama gets another four years. In either case, it's fitting.
