Fuck President Obama, that lying warmonger



I came across these videos this weekend, and they enraged me. Both videos deal with children in Libya who found themselves victims to the NATO airstrikes. *I will include both videos at the end of this post* these videos bothered me. One shows a child, who I saw was around 3 years old, with his jaw hanging off screaming & crying, with what appears to be his sisters body being placed next to him. This was NATO's fault, it wasnt Ghadaffi. Obama wanted people to believe that we were going in to Libya to remove ghadaffi because he was killing his own people, yet we kill more with the constant airstrikes. I have seen quite a few videos of people in Libya crying because their kids were killed by NATO bombs, and asking the same question, "Why are you bombing us?", and you wonder why countries hate us? We are so goddamn ignorant in this country. I hate how people in this country put a higher value on an American life over those who live in other countries. A life is a life period. Don’t believe me, if a suicide bomber kills 200 Americans, then it’s a big deal. Meanwhile if a NATO airstrike or drone attack kills 200 people it’s a non-story. As far as I see it 200 people died either way. 911 was horrible but only a few thousand died, meanwhile AT LEAST 1 million innocent people died in Iraq throughout this war & around the same amount of innocent people died in Libya as the result of NATO & the rebels, yet no one cares. Its sickening. 
 We start stuff with our reckless offensive "Team America" style foreign policy. That’s why I am such a big Ron Paul supporter. Ron Paul is against this entire nation building, and putting our troops and innocent people in danger. When he says hes going to bring our troops home, he actually means it, unlike Obama who said the same BS last year and recently said it, not because he means it, but because he wants to be re-elected.

Its very odd to me that President Obama gets treated like a peace candidate, yet our armed forces are fighting in 
-Iraq(he says he’s gonna bring the troops home, ill believe this when I see it)
-Afghanistan
-Libya 
-Uganda
and lets not forget the constant drone attacks in 
-Somalia
-Pakistan
-Yemen
(the list goes on and on) 

Also lets not forget that Operation Fast & Furious (our government giving thousands of guns to Mexican cartels like the sinaloas and others, some of which have been used on our border patrol & police officers) is happening under his watch. Can you believe that all this is happening under President Obama AND THE PIECE OF SHIT WAS STILL GIVEN A NOBEL PEACE PRIZE? Its disgusting, and what’s worse is that liberals who were so angry at Bush for doing the same stuff are ok with Obama doing it because he’s black & he’s a democrat...wrong is wrong, no matter who’s in office. I hope to see the day when them two bastards are in jail for war crimes. Fuck President Obama that lying warmonger. Ron Paul 2012

5 min rants: Occupy Wall Street & Hank Williams JR


Occupy Wall Street: So I know I haven't been blogging in a while, I been busy, regardless today I'm going to give my opinion on the whole Occupy Wall Street movement. For those who been living under a rock, the Occupy Wall Street movement was started as a response, in a way, to all the corruption on Wall Street & social issues in general. Let me say this, I love the fact that Americans are fed up with the horrible direction our country is going, but there are quite a few problems with the movement. I live in Boston, so I decided why not go down to Occupy Boston. Right off the bat I noticed a few people calling for socialism. That's a red flag to me (no pun intended) Capitalism is a great system, it's not perfect, but it works. People are saying Capitalism is the problem, but the real problem is the corrupt bankers who abuse the system and most of all the Federal Reserve. We dont need to get rid of Capitalism, what we need is tougher regulations & to punish those who abuse the system. The corrupt bankers & the Federal Reserve has set us up with a debt that we as the American people don't own. Let me give you an example: imagine you’re at home & hear a knock on the door, you open it and it's a guy you never met before. He says he went to Vegas and got himself into a gambling debt, and that you need to give him money to pay for it. Mind you you have never met this man, nor have you ever did anything to contribute to his debt. That same type of thing is happening to us. The Federal Reserve especially is trying to charge us for a debt that isn't ours. Speaking of banks let me quickly touch on Bank of America. Bank of America was in the news recently for deciding that they are going to charge all it's users who use their debt card, a five dollar fee. I find this insulting to their bank customers. For those who don't know, Bank of America got some bailout money in 08, and yet have the nerve to ask you for a fee? I closed my account with them years ago because they were taking money from my account, and that was the best decision I made in my life. Bank of America is a corrupt bank. Don't believe me, google "bank of America forecloses on the wrong home", and you will see that in some cases they foreclose homes they don't even own in the first place...I digress. Back to the occupy wall street movement, some people there don't even know why they are there & are completely uninformed at the matters at hand. I asked one young college student why he was there & he said "I don't know"...that's a shame. Here's what I fear that the whole Occupy Wall Street movement will go the same route as the Tea Party movement. Let me explain. The Tea Party was originally started by Ron Paul and a few other to be a strong third party. They were anti-taxes and anti-war. Then they got derailed and essentially hijacked by the likes of Sarah Palin/Glenn Beck retards, racist, ect. The Tea Party takeover was done by the "right". The Occupy Wall street take over is being done by the left. Don't get me wrong, there are some sincere and knowledgeable people at Occupy Wall Street & all these other events around the country who see that the real problem isn't wall street, but the Federal Reserve & that we need to end the fed. That being said the occupy movement is being taken over by those calling for Communism, Socialism & all this other crap. It seems like the rich people don't like the occupy wallstreet people because in their eyes they are lazy, and on the flip side those on occupy wall street don't like the rich because they feel that they need to share their wealth. Meanwhile while all this infighting is going on the Federal Reserve is getting is in more debt. Let's End the Fed, and also register to vote so we can get Ron Paul the GOP nomination when the primaries come around.(because he's the only one who seriously wants to bring serious change to our economy & end the wars) Also included in this post is a video of one protester who gets it. He explains it all perfectly & if you don’t believe him, research it…


Hank Williams JR: So for those who dont know, Hank Williams jr was fired from his Monday Night Football job because he allegedly compared Obama to Hitler. Let me start off by saying that I cant stand his Monday Night football song, and changed the channel when it came on, but I dont think he deserved to get fired. The way the mainstream media made it sound you would think he said something along the lines of, " I cant stand Obama, hes like Hitler", but what he actually said was nothing even close. I have heard the audio, as a matter of fact here it all for yourself. 
He was pretty much saying that Obama and Bonner playing golf is similar to Hitler playing golf with Benjamin Netanyahu. In other words he was trying to give an example of two people who are two opposite sides of the spectrum, that you would never see together. He never hinted to Obama being Hitler. If Hank Williams jr said something about Obama's daughters that would be a different story, but even if he did compare Obama to Hitler he shouldnt get fired over it. When Bush was in office everyone bashed him, why is Obama such a sensitive topic? This is ESPN, a channel that shows men in pads hitting each other for a ball & yet they are getting sensitive over a stupid comment (which was taken out of context) I hate how America has tured from a land of the free & home of the brave, to land of the PC "dont say that because you can hurt someones feeling" slaves. This is why our country would never get over things like racism. We are so PC & worry so much about hurting feelings that in the process we throw a way honesty & someones true feelings. I have not heard any of Hank William Jr's music, but I am defending his right to say what he wants. I feel that nowadays if you dont stick up for someone elses right to free speech, your at risk of losing your own. Hank Williams JR should not of been fired & (besides Skip Bayless) I have lost all respect for ESPN after that move.

911: Wow, 10 years went by fast

SO as many of you know today is 911. The horrific events of that day happened just 10 years ago. Its hard to believe that 10 years past that quickly. I remember where I was on 911. I was in 4th grade and my teacher was about to start teaching math, and I got called down to the office. I was so excited, its not evevery day you get to skip math. Before I left class one thing was odd to me, one of the other teachers came and whispered something to my teacher, causing her face to drop. I didnt think much of it until later on. Anyway I went to the office & My mom was there and I got dismissed early. The ride home was quiet. I  got home to see my dad in the other room, eyes planted on the TV. So since my dad and mom were both focused on tv & since I was home early, I decided to watch some cartoons. I turned it to Nick and all it was was 911 footage. Looking back I know it was a very crazy time, but when a kid turns to a Nick or a Cartoon Network they shouldnt have to see planes going into towers & especially footage of people jumping. As you can expect the whole day was spent in front of the TV. 911 was an event that got to everybody on some level. That day showed what true herorism was. There were the firefighters and police officers rushing back in the WTC to see who they could save, or the passengers who fought back on United 93, and the list goes on and on. One group that really embodies herorism was the first reponders. They came from all walks of life, and came to help. Many of them put their bodies on the line, to help their fellow man. If I was in power, instead of paying for wars, I would pay for healthcare for the first responders. They deserve that at the very least. To bad these out of touch politicians dont get it. And Bloomberg not letting first responders come to that ceremony, screw him. I kinda want to see Bloomberg get cancer, just so he could feel how the first responders are feeling. That part annoys the hell out of me. We say never forget or we remember, but we forget the REAL heroes. Its 10 years after 911 and what do we have to show for it? Ground Zero isnt fully rebuilt, gas prices are still high, we are in multiple wars, and we as Americans are giving up many of our rights to get some "feeling" of security. I seen all this about a terror threat today (which I think is fake), from Pakistan (which if its true might be blowback for all the unprovoked drone attacks) and all you see is checkpoints and all this stuff in NY. What ever happened to a thing called the 4th Amendment? The Patriot Act is an enemy to the free society America was built on. Its only a matter of time before all this security and stuff gets turned on us, the people. Its in the works too, dont believe me, google "HR 645". Heres a random thought for you, Terrorism is defined as ,"the use of violence and threats to intimidate or coerce,especially for political purposes." but our government does this all the time to other countries. Take the drone attacks in Pakistan for instance. I love this country, but I dont hesitate to call it out on its BS. Using the definition of terrorism, our government partakes in many acts of terrorism, but I digress. As you can see my faith in this countries government has been declining since 911. I just dont trust them. Its 10 years later & we still dont know the full story on what happened on 911. As a matter of fact if you try and get some of the documents you cant, even under the Freedom of Information act. The whole Building 7 thing also rubs me the wrong way as well. Some fishy stuff definitely happened behind the scences. Anyway in conclusion, if there are any first responders reading this, I say Thank You. You all are the real heroes. 911 is something I, like many others, would never forget. Although what happened that day was horrific, in a way it showed us what makes this country great. Its not the whole display your "made in China" American flag part, but the fact that when trouble comes, we look out and help each other. It sucks that we are constantly fighting with each other too see that. (I wish I had a better way to end this, but Im half asleep, I apologize)

Something that grinds my gears & razzes my berries about the Service/ Industry

So I haven't updated my blog, and what better reason than today and tell you something that really pisses me off about my job. First of all let me start from the beginning, I work on a waitstaff. I kinda do what waiters do, except I work with big events. There are a few things I hate about it. One is how us waitstaff workers pretty much do what trees do with CO2 with negative energy. Let me explain, you know how trees take the thing that can kill you in CO2, and in return gives you something good like oxygen? Well we waitstaff workers are forced to take some people annoying, rude, selfish energy & in return give them something good like a smile and good service. But the subject of this post isn't about that, lord knows I can write along post about that, but the post today is about wasting food. That is the thing that Absolutely grinds my gears and razzes my berries about the service/food industry. I feel uncomfortable at the end of the event when we are cleaning up and dumping food that could be eaten away. Homeless people would love to eat that. It's like a hobos wet dream. Then when you say, "hey why don't we give it to a homeless person", they soon reply, they can't because it's some policy. You can't give shelters already cooked food. I say screw that, homeless people are used to eating whatever they can find, they won't have a problem with already cooked food. I just finished working an event at a college, for ironically enough, their community service program. The biggest irony is how at the dinner they talked about how they were going to work on poverty and hunger in Boston, meanwhile in the back we are dumping loads of food. This happens at colleges all across the country, they preach the need of helping others in need, meanwhile behind the scenes are doing little and actually hurting the people they claim to want to help. Also a lot of colleges talk and do a lot about recycling & stuff to save mother earth and all that BS. I say screw mother earth, if I drop a can in the wrong bin she'll live. Instead let's work more at helping our fellow man. I honestly believe that if we were serious about ending poverty and hunger in this country we could get it done. It's not like we don't have the food. Every day someone eats at a restaurant or whatever, decides they have enough, the waiter or whoever takes it away, heads to the back and dumps it. They spent their money on it, fair to say, and I'm not trying to tell them what to do with their money, all I'm asking is for people to be a little more conscience. The way I was raised you take what you can eat, and if you don't finish it, you will have it for dinner or lunch or whatever the next day. That might help, or better yet, everyone should be forced to serve in the service industry for at least 3 months. After that people will be more conscience about how they treat others (especially waitstaff), learn a thing or two about serving others & lastly see the dark side/behind the scene of the food industry. People need to get aware, we have a problem, and we talk about wanting to fix it, but do not as much as we could do to fix it. So in conclusion, if you want to do a job where you feel good about yourself, think about considering the service industry.

Libya: Obama's Iraq War

Many of you who read my blog know my position on the whole Libya situation. I been against it from the begining. This war, is totally unnecessary and a complete waste of time and money. I dont understand how Liberals who were so against the Iraq war are so supportive of Obama's actions in Libya, and conservatives who were so gung-ho about going into Iraq are so against Obama's moves in Libya. War is War no matter how you look at it. Just because you give it a nice sounding name like "kinetic military peace action" doesnt negate the fact that bombs are being dropped on innocent civilians, people are dying and money (that this country doesnt have) is being wasted yet again. The first day we went into Libya and hit them with NATO airstrikes, some reports say that it cost us 100 million dollars http://www.npr.org/blogs/thetwo-way/2011/03/21/134742884/adding-up-the-cost-of-military-action-in-libya. Here we are 4 months later, can you imagine how much money we wasted? Not to mention everyday there are reports and articles about innocent people dying. One airstrike even killed Ghaddafi's little grandchildren, who didnt do anything to deserve to die. There are two other things I want to touch on, the rebels & Gaddaffi himself. The media portrays the rebels to be heros & fighting for the liberation of Libya, but they never tell you the full extent of who these people actually are. For one the rebels have links to Al Qaeda. This isnt a conspiracy theory either. There are many articles that talk about this http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/worldnews/africaandindianocean/libya/8407047/Libyan-rebel-commander-admits-his-fighters-have-al-Qaeda-links.html 

http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2011/03/19/extremists-among-libya-rebels_n_837894.html

http://www.cbsnews.com/8301-503543_162-20048982-503543.html

The same Al Qaeda that attacked us on 9/11. The same Al Qaeda that kills many of our troops. The same Al Qaeda that is the reason we have troops fighting overseas in the first place. I dont know about you, but that doesnt sound right. To make it worse our government officially recognizes the rebels as the real government of Libya. Dont believe me? http://www.airforcetimes.com/news/2011/07/ap-us-recognizes-libya-rebels-official-government-071511/

http://articles.cnn.com/2011-07-27/world/uk.libya.embassy_1_rebel-council-libyan-rebels-transitional-national-council?_s=PM:WORLD

Told you. So we are giving control of Libya to a bunch of terrorist, sounds like a great way to avoid a war in the future. Not to mentions these rebels are constantly fighting with each other over control. Giving the rebels control of Libya makes just as much sense as giving the Bloods & Crips control of LA or giving the Mexican Cartels control of Texas and Arizona. Also one thing the media wont talk about is how the rebels kill black libyans. Its some tribal beef, and the arab libyans (who mostly make up the rebels) are going after black libyans. They used the story that "oh these black libyans are mercenaries for ghadaffi". Now they just kill them. Dont believe me?

http://frontpagemag.com/2011/04/22/libyan-rebels-terrorize-black-africans/

http://www.wsws.org/articles/2011/mar2011/rebe-m31.shtml

http://somalilandpress.com/libya-rebels-execute-black-immigrants-while-forces-kidnap-others-20586
So were looking at a possible genocide if the rebels get control. Smart thinking. Its only a matter of time before this blows up in our faces. The US stays supporting the wrong horse: Batista, the shah, Diem, Saddam, and countless other now including the rebels. The blowback doesnt look good at all.
Lastly Gadaffi. There are many ways to spell this mans name and I dont know which one is the right one. Gadaffi is a dictator and a jerk, we can all agree on that. The media doesnt tell you that not everyone in Libya hates Gadaffi. Gadaffi reinvest the wealth back into the country & thats why Libya has some of the highest standard of living in that region. They dont tell you that the rebels aint the middle class, because the Libyan middle class was cool with gadaffi, he took care of them. He also tried to nationalize Libyas oil back in 2009. http://www.reuters.com/article/2009/01/21/us-libya-gaddafi-oil-idUSTRE50K61F20090121 and I personally dont think that sat well with the west, because looking at history, nationalizing oil got Mosedegh overthrown by the CIA in Iran in 1953. This could be the 2011 version of that. I mean Libya is sitting on some of the largest oil reserves in Africa. Gadaffi also was one of the first to issue an arrest warrant for Osama Bin Laden back in the late 90's. http://www.washingtonpost.com/world/middle-east/gaddafis-libya-reminds-us-it-issued-the-first-bin-laden-arrest-warrant/2011/05/04/AFLEJJqF_story.html I say all that to say this, Gadaffi is a bad guy, sure, but he shouldnt be a concern to the US. We cant afford these wars, and Ron Paul said it best, " we need to mind our business". Now in the short run we might get rid of Gadaffi, but we ultimately destabilized a country, put it in the hands of rebels who are sure to bring about civil war, and did more harm than good. We cant afford to be the global police force anymore. We should of never gotten involved in Libya in the first place. For all the people praising this war, that Obama said "should take days not weeks" four months ago, should be ashamed of yourself. Dont believe what the mainstream media tells you because at the end of the day, they dont know what the hell they are talking back. And Obama's statement on Libya was a joke. He actually said,"But this much is clear. The Gaddafi regime is coming to an end, and the future of Libya is in the hands of its people." ---> now take Gaddaffi and Libya, and replace it with Saddam and Iraq. Sounds familiar to you? sounds exactly like Bush to me...hmmm

KevinsKewlKorner fully endorse and supports Dr. Ron Paul for President in 2012

Most of you all know I absolutely love Ron Paul. He isnt your average politician. He stands firm on what he believe, and he doesnt let public opinion sway his beliefs. He is one of the few politicians whos views and voting record has remained constant and consistent on issues such as the War in Iraq (which he was one of the few who voted NO), the Patriot Act (one of the few who voted NO), in addition to so much more. He was calling for the Fed to be Audited WAY before it was mainstream, and at the time when he looked like a weirdo for saying stuff like that. Bush failed us, Obama failed us, what America cant afford is another 4 years of the status quo. We cant afford to fight & escalate conflicts with other countries that we cant even fiance ourself. We cant afford to give all these greedy bankers who got us in trouble in the first place more money in these shady "bailouts". We cant afford another President who serves the interest of lobbyist over the interest of the masses of people who got him elected in the first place. Insanity is trying the same thing and expecting different results. We tried a republican who happened to be a war monger & in the interest of banks, and we soon got annoyed with him and tried a democrat who did the exact same thing. Why not w try someone different? Ron Paul is that person. He knows his economics, which is more than Obama and Bush can ever say, and on top of that he knows the Consititution. America is one of the greatest countries in the world, and its sad to see that our country is in this type of shape now. Ron Paul isnt mainstream & thats why mainstream doesnt like him. In the debates last night, Ron Paul pretty much won. He did so by saying what he believes, he didnt need to Obama bash or none of that. He also gives it to us straight. He doesnt beat around the bush, he keeps it direct and honest. Ron Paul is beyond that "left vs right/ political wwe" that we see everyday. He brings up real issues, ones that if our government continues to ignore would lead to a long, tough road ahead. Back to the debates, every single poll said he won. Even in a couple polls on Fox News, he lead by at least double of what second place had, but of course fox news deleted that poll and only talks about Romney and Bachman. Even on Yahoo they only mention Romney and Bachman, and dont even mention Ron Paul. Ron Paul is the only winner who the mainstream refuses to acknowledge they won. I have seen countless articles that say Ron Paul is the only real competition for Obama, and yet not even what claims to be conservative media gives him the slightest mention. I could honestly say that if I was old enough to vote in the last election I would have voted for Obama, because I thought he was genuine about what he was saying. As I soon started doing research and looking at what he actually has done I realized he was no different than his predicessor. So this coming election my vote is going for Ron Paul. If you dont know who he is I challenge you to do research. You will agree with him on so much more than you think. Our country is at the point that we cant afford continue this political WWE, but we need to address real issues. Thats why KevinsKewlKorner 100% endorses Ron Paul as President in 2012.

So the US officially lost its AAA credit rating....this isnt good at all


So it's officially here, the United States has lost it's AAA credit rating. Some of you who are frequent readers of this blog have seen me mention how a loss of our AAA credit rating would be detrimental to our economy. So after this whole BS with the debt ceiling we finally lost it. Our AAA credit rating pretty much allows us to borrow money from other countries, because are good for the money and would pay them back. Losing our AAA credit rating is pretty much saying we aren’t good with money and if you loan money to us, we suck at paying you back. Let me briefly stop for a moment and share a few thoughts about the whole debt ceiling fiasco. It was all political WWE. Both sides put up a convincing act that most of the general public ate up completely. In the end the bill mentioned 2.5 trillion dollars in spending cuts. Meanwhile I have read in many articles that in order to save our credit rating they need to have at least 4 trillion dollars in cuts. It doesn't take a genius to realize 2.5 isn't 4 and would never be 4. We could easily make 4 trillion in cuts. Cut defense, particularly cut funding for all these wars and "kinetic military actions" as Obama likes to put it, that the US are involved in & bring the troops home. Then audit the Federal Reserve, pentagon and treasury who are responsible for trillions of dollars going "missing" and haven't been investigated. Next cut foreign aid. I don't care if they're Israel or Egypt; we shouldn't give them money if we as a country are beyond broke. That little plan of mine could easily help our economy. Anyway back to the AAA credit rating situation. People like Ron Paul warned us that this would happen & he's right. The sad part is the general masses don't care about this type of stuff until it hits their pockets personally. Because we lost our good credit rating things are going to change & not for the better. Pensions are in jeopardy, government student loans interest rates are going to be jacked up, and so much other fun stuff. Sounds fun huh? If our economy is a roller coaster, it's quickly headed for the bottom. Shoutout to Obama, Bush, greedy bankers, lobbyist, wars, the thieves in the Federal Reserve and all the countless others who made today possible. Thank you for absolutely destroying our economy :) When 2012 comes around my vote is going for Ron Paul. This is just one more sign that our nation is in need of a revolution both politically and in our thinking overall. We're in a time where ignorance is deadly

This Levi Aron case really bothers me

If you have been living under a rock for a few days you might not have heard of what happened in NY a couple days ago. Levi Aron is arrested and charged with killing and dismembering 8 year old Lieby Kletzky. This case really bothers me. Long story short, the boy was lost and asked him for directions, like any kid lost would do, he pretty much took advantage of the boy. Instead of brining him home, brought him to his house, the kid is reported missing, he panics, smoothers the kid, then chops him up. The creepiest part of the story is when the cops got to his apartment and asked where the boy was & he pointed to the fridge. In the fridge the cops found bloody knives and worst of all the kid's feet. Smothering the kid with a towel is horrible in itself, but chopping him up is pure evil. This dude deserves to die a slow and painful death, or a death period. I read that he's on suicide watch, and i have no problem with that. Jim norton said it best, " thats what they should do if he commits suicide - watch". This dude is a monster. He could of easily dropped the boy home or at the very least just gave him directions and went on his way.  Levi Aron deserves to be in a Nazi death camp. It really bothers me, and if you read whats out about his confession its just chilling.  I hope there's death penalty in NY, because Levi Aron earned a spot on it.

Today is KevinsKewlKorners One Year Anniversary !!!!!

So by reading the title you can tell that one year ago today a great blog was started lol. If your saying to yourself, "which blog is this?" you can kiss my grits (sorry for the vulgar language). This year has gone pretty fast, and it has been a pretty good year. Not many bloggers can say that they been viewed in over 100 countries worldwide, and nominated for an award in their first year of blogging. Let me quickly update you on the results of the BlackWeblogAwards. As many of you know I was nominated & a finalist in the Best Teen Blog category. Long story short, I lost to Reading in Color. It was a bummer, but Ill live. Sometimes great things don't win awards. Denzel Washington lost to Al Pacino in the 1992 Oscars for Best Actor, Saving Private Ryan lost to Shakespeare in Love. The Town wasnt even nominated for Best Picture. As you can tell by my various movie/oscar references, sometimes great things dont win the awards. That being said I want to thank everyone who voted for me, supported me, and even the few who trashed me. Its been a pretty good year blogging wise & I hope to keep blogging for many more (wow that line was so cheesy...ugh. I really sound like I have no life huh? lol) Seriously though, Thanks again

David Ortiz sucks at fighting...(my rant on the Ortiz vs Kevin Gregg fight)



So tonight (or yesterday) the Red Soxs were playing Baltimore. They won 10-3, which is awesome, but even in a win you cant cover up the mess that was the David Ortiz/Kevin Gregg fight. Here's the video if you havent seen it.

 Let me preface this by saying Im a Boston Red Sox fan & I always will be. So let me get into this. David Ortiz cant fight for crap. His punches miss more targets than NATO missiles in Libya. He really had no real reason to storm the mound, its not like the ball came at him or his head. How ironic David Ortiz is a "Designated Hitter" who in a fight cant seem to make one hit? If your gonna storm the mound at least do something, gotdamn. David Ortiz needs to leave the fighting to the professionals. David Ortiz is big and is from DR and cant fight?! At least get one punch in. He fights as good as an armless kid with down syndrome. The only connection worse than David Ortiz fist to face connection is AT&T's iphone service connection. Im happy the brawl (I use that term loosely) was bench clearing because it covered up that embarrassment fast. Its like a kid pissing his pants and the teacher running and covering him with a towel. The bench clearing was that towel that covered the piss stain known as the David Ortiz/Kevin Gregg fight...And that concludes my mini rant

Im guessing this is how most of America reacted to the Casey Anthony verdict

So Casey Anthony is Not Guilty

The verdict in the Casey Anthony trial came today, and the jury came to the decision that she is not guilty. This verdict came to a shock to many. Even people who never followed a min of the case were outraged. Casey Anthony was found not guilty of murder but found guilty of lying. Let me start from the beginning, if you have been living under a rock, Casey Anthony was in court for "allegedly" killing her daughter Caylee and lying about her whereabouts. There was so many screwed up things about the situation including "zany the nanny" and even the heart that was on the tape that was on Caylee's mouth. I thought she was a goner for good. I been tweeting #freecasey for weeks and even liked a Free Casey Anthony fan page on facebook for laughs thinking she was gonna be guilty for sure, but I never expected this verdict. Wow. She really had an amazing group of attorneys. They raised reasonable doubt that ended up getting her off. That’s the legal system we live with. All you need is a reasonable doubt. That being said our legal system is weird as hell. Speaking of which, a lot of people are turning this into a racial thing. All on twitter I seen comparisons to Mike Vick, Plaxico Burress, ect. Let me squash that racial myth right now. Florida is a weird place when it comes to legal matters. Lets take for example NFL wide receiver, Donte Stallworth, he killed a guy while driving drunk and only received 30 days in prison. He’s black. Casey Anthony served 3 years already. That’s more time than Donte served. I think Casey killed her daughter, and even if she didn’t, not reporting her for 30 days is not a good look. Caylee’s grandparents sound like they wouldn’t of minded taking care of her. Casey should have done that. Family reunions in the Anthony household surely are gonna be awkward from now on. I really believe she is guilty. Since she is not guilty the question is still there, if she didn’t kill Caylee who did? That question we would never know the answer too. Also you see a lot of people who want her dead, saying things like “Ill kill Casey Anthony”. Good idea genius. Do it. If you kill her or attack her, you’ll go to jail and she’ll still be free.  The truth of the matter is there’s not much anyone can do. Double Jeopardy protects her from getting tried for the same thing twice. Her sentencing should come around Friday and I wont be surprised if they give her time served, considering the fact she served 3 years already. I think Casey Anthony is a horrible human being. I hope they don’t give her a Lifetime movie, book deal or nothing, and try and capitalize off this situation. Then again it is America, and I wont be surprised if she has a spread in Playboy in the next few months or something. As much as I cant stand her, i dont wish harm on her, but a guilty conscience is not something you can just shake off. In the court of law she was found guilty, but in the court of public opinion however, she is GUILTY as hell.

So they finally caught Whitey Bulger

It seems like 2011 is the year of catching the most wanted. So James 'Whitey' Bulger was caught in CA two days ago. At this present moment he's shipping off to Boston (whoa oh oh). Whitey has been on the run for almost 20 years. I cant believe it took them that long to find him. Is it really that hard to find a mobster from Southie? Shouldn't his Boston accent give him away wherever he goes? Like many Americans I found out the news first on facebook and twitter. It was crazy because some part of me is happy they finally caught him, but the other part of me could careless. Whitey was scum (ugh I sound like an old guy. Who says scum besides old people?) He was a snitch, and not the "hood" definition of a snitch, but he was a real snitch. He was involved in crimes and told on others also involved in crimes. Its on record that he was an FBI informant. He used to tell the FBI about rival crews and that helped him in his rise to power. Its ironic how tips got him his power and one tip ended his reign. I dont really care that we caught Whitey. He's 81 years old. HE goes to jail, its not like hes gonna be alive long enough to actually suffer and stuff for what he did. He's pretty much done already. He probably got sick of the running and just wanted to end it. He might of wanted to see the Stanley cup, considering he was in town the last time the won it, and getting caught was a surefire way he would get back to Boston to get a glimpse of the cup. Who knows. All I know is he's caught and is on his way back here...I might do another update when more details come out

My mini review of Book of Mormon

I saw the Book of Mormon the other day and I love it. I absolutley HATE musicals. The songs annoying to me, that wasn't the case here. The Book of Mormon is a play about two young Mormons: Elder Kevin Price (played by Andrew Rannells) and Elder Cunningham (played by Josh Gad) , who get sent to be missionaries in Uganda. When they get there they realize it's not what they expected at all. The story was really good, and the characters in it are amazing. From the title The Book of Mormon you can get the hint that religion, specifically the Mormon faith, is the target of Matt, Trey and Lopez. It's weird because it's not like there totally trashing it, but they seem to make fun of it while at the sane time showing respect towards it. It's really hard to explain. There were one or two small things I didn't really care for. One of the songs *no spoilers* is translated to something kinda crazy, and when I found out what it was my face looked exactly like the two young mormon's face at that moment. The song is catchy though. That bring said I know this is coming from Matt and Trey and since I'm a fan of South Park and Team America, I know that's what they do. They poke fun of things, religions, races, ect without any discrimination. The moments I didn't care for were few and far between. Anyway switching gears. Lets talk about the music. Whats a musical without music? Anyway the music was awesome. If your a fan of South Park, Team America, and other Matt & Trey stuff you'll know they put a lot of songs in their stuff. This play is no different. The songs are fun, hilarious, and catchy as hell. I loved some of the songs so much that I had to get them off of ITunes. "Man up" might be my favorite song on the soundtrack by far. Also everyone did an amazing job. One person who I haven't mentioned yet is Nikki M. James who killed it. I forgot how to spell her characters name, but she did a great job. The Book of Mormon was funny and overall was incredible.

I dont get why Black people dont like Hockey

So as many of you know the Boston Bruins just won the Stanley cup. They came in the underdogs, and after a intense 7 game series with the Vancouver Canucks, left champions. That night was insane, as a Boston resident and a Bruins fan, I couldnt be more happier for them. As you can see by the topic, i dont understand why black people dont like hockey. Black people really seem to have an interest in hockey, but that changed a bit a few days ago. A bunch of black people I know said on twitter/facebook, "finally watching my first hockey game" and stuff like that. The Bruins broke a few records that night they won the cup, and one of which was they broke the record of the number of black viewers. As I mentioned I live in Boston, we have the Patriots, Red Sox, Celtics, but it seems like the red-headed step child of Boston sports is (or at least was) the Bruins. Not to say that the Bruins dont have fans, they have a huge fan base, but it doesnt seem to get everyone as a whole. Now that I'm done babbling here's why I dont get why black people dont like hockey.

1. Hockey has fights
Lets be honest, black people love watching fights. Black people love watching fights that involve anything from UFC fighters to random bums. Hockey has more fights than hoodrats at a BBQ, they fight all the time. In other sports if you fight you get ejected, in hockey you pretty much go on "time-out" and come back out. Also the refs, sometimes seem to just let people fight. Refs in other sports are like the security team on the Jerry Springer show and break up fights as soon as they look like they are about to get good. Also this reason leads into the number two reason why I dont understand why black people dont like hockey.....


2. Its mostly white people doing it
Hockey is one of the few sports you actually see two white guys just hit each other on a regular basis. Theres hockey, rugby (which black people are getting hip too), and boxing/mma. Hockey is one of the sports where you can see white guys go crazy in a way where no people are killed. Black people have a thing where we like seeing white people do stupid stuff. We already know we have crazy people aka hoodrats, but we just like seeing that white people have their own group of crazy hard hitters too. Why o you think black people like watching stuff like Jackass, and stuff like 16 and pregnant. Simple, because they show a bunch of white girls getting pregnant. If they showed a bunch of black people, then it would just be everyday life, but its something about seeing white people do stuff to make us feel that we are all crazy on some level. Just seeing two white guys take off the gloves, square up, and bang it out alone would get black people even more interested in hockey. Yeah there are a few black guys in the NHL, one of which I would never root for, PK Subban. Not only is he a douche (very talented but a douche nonetheless), but he plays for the Bruins rival, the Montreal Canadiens. The only way I would ever root for him is if he joins the Bruins squad. Other than that, this aint black history month, this is Boston & we take sports pretty seriously.

Those are the two main reasons that come to mind when it comes to why I dont get why Black people dont like Hockey. Feel free to comment, also suggestions are always welcome. By the way if you voted for my blog to win in the Best Teen Blog category in the Black Weblog Awards I thank you, regardless if I win or lose (although I prefer to win) I thank you for all your interest, feedback and support in making this blog awesome.
