Drew Bledsoe 70 Passes Vs Vikings 1994



This is a FOX Sports montage of the November 1994 game that launched the Patriots dynasty under Bob Kraft ownership. Drew Bledsoe threw 70 passes with 45 completions, three touchdowns, and a huge comeback win over the Vikings. This win was the first of 175 in the Kraft era from November 1994 to Christmas 2010.

Kevin Harlan (later of CBS Sports) and Jerry Glanville are the announcers.

Lying About Iraq's Casualties

With WikiLeaks on the rampage again, the lie that 250,000 were killed in Iraq is being peddled again. But the biggest irony is that the documents prove - as though proof was needed - that Iran has been sanctioning the campaign to exterminate civilians in Iraq after the liberation - a fact the MSM was determined to deny in order to justify attacking George W. Bush.

Vikings fans and Favre interception



This compendium of Vikings fans reaction to the infamous Brett Favre INT is humorous but also illustrates the central failing of Favre - his complete and utter selfishness. It also makes one feel bad for Vikings fans given how close the Vikings have been entering the 2010 season.

BTW, the guy in the Favre road jersey yelling in the second clip - that would be me if Favre played for the Patriots or the Titans.

Tennessee Titans @ Houston Oilers - How It Should Be



Normally I don't play videogames but the guy who re-dressed the Houston Texans in Oilers uniforms did a brilliant job. I root for the Titans but I also like Houston's football team and the name should be the Oilers - it doesn't take away from the identity of the Titans anymore than the Cleveland Browns name took away from the Baltimore Ravens' identity after they moved from Cleveland.

Discussion On Public Sector Pay and Pensions

A discussion on Public Sector Pay and Pensions is presented here. The piece concludes by noting the discussion of whether public sector pay and pensions are justified. Given the fact that the public sector does things that the private sector does better at less cost, the reality is such pay and pensions are a waste of money.

Media Hopes It Has New Pentagon Papers

First we need to repost this July 26 piece:

WikiLeaks is a sign that publishes purloined documents, and it has found some 77,000 pages of documents on the Afghanistan war, with another 15,000 on the way. WikiLeaks released the documents to three media outlets who want to press a case for US withdrawal, even though the documents themselves don't make that case; instead they illustrate what the US is actually doing, and what the enemy is doing.

The piece cited above notes that the release is a Rorschach test, and WikiLeaks leaked them to media outlets they felt would use them to press the case for withdrawal. The problem is the documents don't make that case.

Of course it's been done before - in 1971 the Institute for Policy Studies obtained "the Pentagon Papers," a voluminous cache of documents on US planning and debate before and during the Vietnam War. The New York Times printed excerpts of the papers to make the case for US withdrawal - except it had to all but falsify what the papers actually said to make that case.

It caused a firestorm at the time and was a turning point in the dishonesty of the Mainstream Media. The MSM may hope it achieves success here, but with the way the media landscape has changed there is more reason to hope rationality wins out.


UPDATE: Julian Assage, the creep in charge of WikiLeaks, defended himself on the Today show, this after he leaked the infamous Apache gunship footage trying to prove nonexistent "collateral murder." But as shown here he's guilty of what he slandered the Army for, and as a Wired link in the story shows, some of what Assange leaked isn't true.

UPDATE #2: A look at what the Times didn't do with regard to how WikiLeaks was handling the documents.

Two Crooks Dishing

First is this repost from June 28:

Chris Dodd and Barney Frank are crooks. Being elected officials they get the ultimate area where they can swipe money and spend it. They've thus authored a financial "reform" bill that's about spending money and forcing someone else to pay for it. But they may have sealed their bill's doom.

UPDATE: The Dodd-Frank monstrosity passed, but got somewhat neutered, and the caving of a few weak Republicans helped a bill that otherwise was doomed.

Ted Kennedy, Official Traitor

Ted Kennedy was lionized upon his death and also upon release of over 2,000 pages of Teddy's FBI file. The MSM, though, wil continue to ignore what Soviet archives show of Teddy's illegal overtures to Soviet Russia.

General McChrystal

With the release of General Stanley McChrystal and installation of General David Petraeus in Afghantistan in the wake of the Rolling Stone piece, some pieces about General McChrystal - why he should have been released (seconded here with both published before the change) and why he should have stayed. The most delicious aspect of the situation is this - McChrystal managed to genuinely anger the infamously stuck-up Obama. Obama deserved to get treated like this because he's a jerk and as such not qualified to lead - and the only way he can begin to earn real trust is to change his policy and go for victory in the Middle East.

Worth noting is that what McChrystal did was not insubordination and in fact reflects poorly on the pundit class.

The JFK Junior Syndrome

Presented is an interesting comparison of The Man On The Way Up to John Kennedy Junior, a political failure like Barack who was nonetheless canonized.

Barack To Axis: "We Surrender"

It is impossible to think The Man On The Way Up would have actually worked to defeat the Axis in the Second World War. This is because The Man On The Way Up lacks the good sense that Franklin Roosevelt fortunately had when it came time to call off his own war against business.

It's the biggest difference between Roosevelt and Obama - Roosevelt was a deeply flawed President but he was an adult, and as such was able to straighten his policy out - Obama is not an adult but a selfish man-child who rules as a immature pouter would - with "Mine" and "No" his operative words as opposed to mature, operative thought.

The President With No Answers

Israel of course is guilty of a crime against humanity based on UN reaction.
