A bad round

The media circus surrounding Tiger Woods accident is a total waste of ink and oxygen in their query to invade Woods' privacy. The media has bounced this story around until it has evolved into one of the biggest pieces of tabloid garbage that there ever was.

Pundits on the airwaves are clamoring for dirt and declaring that Woods owes an explanation to the public. My question is whose business it is beside his wife and himself anyway. They owe no one the right to know their personal business.

A report published by a particular sports news syndicate says that Woods will lose millions of dollars from sponsors as a result of his accident and resulting rumors, but I doubt very seriously [they will] because they are in business to sell their products and Tiger Woods is definitely the man for that.

A recent poll of the people showed, when asked if they were sponsors would they continue to use Tiger Woods in the highly dramatized aftermath of his accident, 66 percent responded that they would.

That tells me that media is wrong in their assumptions and even if he did lose all of his sponsors how much hurt could that possibly bring to bear on one of the richest sportsmen in the history of sports. After all they would be the losers in the long run if they dropped him as the face and user of their sporting products.

Hang in there Tiger and remain silent. Your personal affairs are nobody's business but your own and certainly doesn't interest me or change my admiration of you in the least .

Carrying a bologna sandwich, flashlight, and car keys in his crotch.

Thanks slacker. I lost my appetite. :-{

Right on, BN. We can't have butter, because we need the guns. However, our number one US foreign aid recipient has had a very generous state-operated healthcare system paying the bills for several decades...drugs, abortions and out of country transplants are all covered...free dental for all the kids too. They can afford the 1st quality butter, because we provide the free guns, compliments of the US Congress..

Incredibly, US-subsidized Israelis are entitled to a national healthcare system that the US Congress would deny to American citizens. Maybe Israel should start sending the USA some foreign aid, they can certainly affford it.

Slacker, the LDS, cod-piece-boxer-short is designed for men with big libidos. Mormons are extremely horny bastards, they need the extra room in the crotch area...for expansion. If you drop the soap in a communtity shower room filled with Mormons, don't bend over to retrieve the soap...leave it there and walk away quickly.

President Obama’s Secret: Only 100 al Qaeda Now in Afghanistan

http://abcnews.go.com/print?id=9227861

At a Senate hearing, the former CIA Pakistan station chief, Bob Grenier, testified al Qaeda had already been defeated in Afghanistan.

"So in terms of 'in Afghanistan,'" asked Sen. John Kerry, D-Mass., "they have been disrupted and dismantled and defeated. They're not in Afghanistan, correct?"

"That's true," replied Grenier.

Al Qaeda is hiding in Mitt Romney's junk...

Loner, I suppose the codpiece opens magically at the proper time, kinda like an automatic garage door. I gotta get me some of those.

By: Loner on 12/3/09 at 1:47

The US is in Afghanistan for two reasons: the good reason and the real reason.

Protecting the US from terror is the good reason. Securing a route for an energy pipeline from central Asia to an Israeli distribution point in Ashkelon is the real reason. The vital interests of the Defense lobby, the Israel lobby and the Energy lobby are all at stake in Afghanistan.

President Obama has got his mind right, it took some time, but he's now onboard with the master plan - still they hate his guts in Israel - a 4% approval rating is all that Obama gets for his servitude. He'll soon be snuffed, if history is any guide. VP Biden is more pro-Israel than Junior Bush ever was...stand by for regime change, Israeli style.

From what my LDS friends tell me, Slacker, the Mormon undies use a velcro fly affair.....when there's Mormon passion in the air, there's no time to waste fiddling with buttons, snaps or zippers.

By: slacker on 12/3/09 at 1:53

MamaG, try shopping for one online, Abt electronics.

By: Blanketnazi2 on 12/3/09 at 1:54

or come over to my side of town and talk to Leroy Brown.

By: house_of_pain on 12/3/09 at 1:55

Just because she said she was in the market for a 42",
doesn't mean she's looking for a TV...

By: Loner on 12/3/09 at 1:56

Those Morman shorts could be useful in beating a urine-based drug test, a fake phallus attached to a rubber bladder containing baby piss could be easily stashed in that cod-pice area. No wonder that LDS employees always test negative.

I have been reading 220 predictions of the end of the world.

So now I will make a prediction as to when the world will end.

By: Blanketnazi2 on 12/3/09 at 2:02

Nemo, chief is not going to say anything intelligent, not even just after nightfall. so there is no end of the world.

By: gdiafante on 12/3/09 at 2:04

I don't know, Nemo. I'm only in the 4th grade!

"He might well have a tough row to hoe, but I hope he emerges a better man."
I think it's more like, "he's got a row of hoes." How he emerges is anyone's guess.

By: Blanketnazi2 on 12/3/09 at 2:14

or "he's got a row of tough hoes."

FYI, fresh from the Jewish Telegrah Agency website:

Chelsea Clinton to wed Jewish boyfriend
November 30, 2009

WASHINGTON (JTA) -- Chelsea Clinton is engaged to marry her Jewish boyfriend of two years.

Clinton, 29, the only daughter of U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton and former President Bill Clinton, became engaged over the Thanksgiving holiday weekend to investment banker Marc Mezvinsky, 31.

Mezvinsky, who works for Goldman Sachs, is the son of former U.S. Reps. Ed Mezvinsky (D-Iowa) and Marjorie Margolies-Mezvinksy (D-Pa.). The elder Mezvinsky recently served a prison term for swindling $10 million from investors in a series of Nigerian e-mail scams. He was released in 2008.

Mezvinksy and Clinton met in Washington in 1993, and both attended Stanford University in Palo Alto, Calif. Clinton, a Methodist, was seen attending Yom Kippur services in September with Mezvinsky at the Jewish Theological Seminary in New York, where they both now live.

The couple announced their engagement last Friday in a mass e-mail to friends, a Clinton spokesman said, according to media reports

Nemo, is that before or after The Rapture. i'm confused.

The end of the world will occur with 10 seconds left in game 7 of the Stanley Cup Finals with the Predators leading Pittsburgh 5-0.

TMI, Nemo....TMI! LOL!

By: Captain Nemo on 12/3/09 at 2:21

Well it would have to happen that way, now wouldn't it gdia. lol

By: Captain Nemo on 12/3/09 at 2:23

It was in the back seat of a VW.

By: Loner on 12/3/09 at 2:25

Isn't i t heart-warming to know that Chelsea Clinton is marrying into a family headed by a convicted felon, a disgraced lawmaker? Her mother-in-law and father-in-law are de facto Israeli agents. No wonder then, that Hillary and Bill are so subservient to the Israelis....they're a family of Jewish wannabes. Maybe Chelsea will make Aliyah and run for office over there, not here....we can hope. Oy!

By: Captain Nemo on 12/3/09 at 2:29

It could have been worst, Loner. Her mama-in-law could have been sid.

By: gdiafante on 12/3/09 at 2:31

I stand corrected, the world will end when Loner doesn't accuse everyone of a Zionist conspiracy.

By the way, my parrot is Jewish, bub.

By: Captain Nemo on 12/3/09 at 2:34

"aw Polly want a Mogan David".

By: Loner on 12/3/09 at 2:36

I'll take Sid, over an Israeli agent anyday, Nemo. Here's a link to more on Chelsea's infamous in-laws:

I guess sleaze, like water, seeks its own level. The issue from the union of these two social climbers should be a real piece of work.

It's only awkward during Hanukkah...

By: Captain Nemo on 12/3/09 at 2:40

Loner have you forgotten that my wife was Jewish?

By: Loner on 12/3/09 at 2:40

I don't accuse everyone, Gd, just the guilty. Is your parrot circumscized? Does he/she say, "Oy!" quite often? Does the parrot try to steal your parakeets food?

By: Loner on 12/3/09 at 2:42

No I have not, Nemo. What's your point?

By: Blanketnazi2 on 12/3/09 at 2:47

hey, here's dargent posting!
