Saturday Hodge Podge

Here we go folks . . .                                                                                            

Chris Christie (New Jersey gov.) is endorsing Donald Trump for the Republican nomination for President of the United States?  Hmmm ... sounds like someone is looking for a gig as VP running mate for Trump should he win the nomination.

What has happened to MSNBC?  Pity they are owned and controlled by Comcast, which has been dismantling and destroying that network since they bought them in 2011.

There is no "Liberal media" in the USA! The right wing "conservative" cause has made damn sure of that as the RW corporate controlled media controls the message.

Donald Trump . . . enough said.

Bernie Sanders continues to fight the good fight but alas the main stream media ignores him. Granted he has been on the Sunday morning talking head shows, but they do not carry the weight they used to because they have too many republicans on every week.

Hillary Clinton will most likely become our country's 45th President this November.

The GOP in this country is stone cold insane.

Here in Illinois, we have a tyrant named Bruce Rauner (pictured in upper right hand corner) as governor.  He thinks he can "will" his mandate on the citizens of this state... Not going to happen, so give it up Rauner!

How pathetic is it that states such as Wisconsin, Michigan, Ohio, Florida, Kansas, Pennsylvania and so on are reeling with the republican governors and/or GOP controlled state legislatures they voted for? In some cases, two or three times. Stupid is as stupid does.

Whatever it takes people, get out and VOTE in the primary elections and the general election in 2016!!!

Hillary Clinton Wins Nevada Caucuses

As expected, Hillary Clinton (pictured at right) won the Nevada caucuses and is heavily favored in South Carolina Democratic primary as well.
If she rolls in South Carolina as expected, she will have all the momentum going forward (unlike in 2008) and U.S. Senator Bernie Sanders (I-Vermont) will be looking at a nearly impossible task of winning the Democratic nomination for President of the United States.
As was expected, Clinton should win the nomination and will likely become our country's 45th President.
The good thing, however, is that Bernie Sanders is getting the message out there that needs to be heard and acted on . . . the American people (the REAL American people - the 99 percent) are sick and tired of the status quo and the rich bastards shitting all over everybody else.
As long as republican candidate is defeated for the U.S. Presidency come this November, that's a good thing and a blessing for the United States of America.

U.S. Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia has died at age 79 while on a weekend at a West Texas resort.
This definitely changes things regarding the majority (like it or not) on decisions of cases the SCOTUS hears in the coming year.

Denver Broncos Win Super Bowl 50

Peyton Manning gets a 2nd Super Bowl title
Peyton Manning went out a winner tonight as the Denver Broncos beat the Carolina Panthers, 24-10 to win Super Bowl 50 and give the future Hall-of-Fame quarterback his second Super Bowl title in his storied career.
The Broncos defense suffocated the league's leading scoring offense as they sacked Panthers' quarterback Cam Newton seven times and forced four turnovers, led by Super Bowl MVP Von Miller, the Broncos star linebacker, who had 2 1/2 QB sacks.
In addition, Manning became the first ever quarterback to win a Super Bowl with two different teams as well as becoming the first quarterback in NFL history to win 200 career games in regular and post-season play combined.

Congratulations to the Denver Broncos ...  Super Bowl Champions!

The Great GOP Debate

                      The Republican Debate in a nutshell 



Super Bowl 50 (Roman numeral L) is here this weekend and the NFL is putting on a special show for the event as the 50th game is ready to kick off.
The Carolina Panthers (15-1 in regular season) face the Denver Broncos (12-4) at Levi's Stadium in Santa Clara, California.
The teams took different routes to the game as the Panthers drilled the Arizona Cardinals, 49-15 in the NFC Championship Game while the Broncos held on to defeat the New England Patriots, 20-18 for the AFC crown.
It may very well be Broncos' quarterback Peyton Manning's last game in his storied NFL career as he has come back big time from nagging foot injuries that held him out of six games this season. Meanwhile, it has been a story book year for likely NFL MVP Cam Newton, the Panthers' star quarterback.
Newton had his best regular season in 2015 (in his fifth year in NFL) and has not been shy about letting the world know it with his "flamboyance" on the field. But hey, it ain't bragging if you can back it up.
Manning is in the twilight of his career and is 1-2 in past Super Bowls, two with Indianapolis and one with the Broncos when they were blown out by the Seattle Seahawks following the 2013 season.
The focus for Manning and the Broncos offense will be to maintain time consuming drives to keep Cam and company off the field. In addition, the tremendous Broncos league leading defense has to keep the Panthers explosive offense in check.
A key factor could be special teams as both teams have accurate kickers along with decent return men.
All in all, it looks to be a close match up (Vegas spreads have the game at Carolina ranging from -4 to -5 1/2 points) for Super Bowl 50 and it could come down to which team has the ball last.
If Carolina jumps out to a big start as they did against Seattle and Arizona in the post-season so far, it could be LONG afternoon for the Broncos.
Look for a close game however, as the Panthers prevail with Newton leading the way in the second half.
