Superbore!

(I think I'll continue to post this every year about this time.)
I'm sorry. I know I'm in the minority here. But I hate the Superbowl. It's just very anti-climactic. Plus I can't stand the fact that they shove such cheesy music down our throats. Although granted Paul McCartney is 10 times better than bad singers with faulty wardrobes. But still Paul McCartney? How about maybe just run more commercials during halftime. They'd make more money and I'd at least get to possibly laugh a little.

The game itself is always a let down. I get sick of the cheesy bios during the pre-game and the most obvious commentary by washed up former players. "I think if they get the ball into the endzone more times than the other team than they will win this one for sure." Oh really.... Gee I never thought that that could even have a bearing on the game!

If you are going to have a fun season ender to pro-sports go with baseball, hockey or basketball. You get to see the best of the best battle it out for up to 7 games until the champion emerges. That's called climax. It's just fun seeing who can endure the other for that time. Football ends on a fluke. In the Superbowl the entire championship can be lost or gained by the tiniest mistake...A fluke. It's not as much skill as it is just chance.

Football is fun. It's rough and it's filled with talented guys, it's just that their anti-climactic finish to the season is a little disappointing.

There is my Superbowl analysis. I am sparticus!

Global Warming Is Natural.

Coutner: from Drudge


Two New Books Confirm Global Warming is Natural; Not Caused By Human Activity
Tue Jan 30 2007 10:02:32 ET

Two powerful new books say today’s global warming is due not to human activity but primarily to a long, moderate solar-linked cycle. Unstoppable Global Warming Every 1500 Years, by physicist Fred Singer and economist Dennis Avery was released just before Christmas. The Chilling Stars: A New Theory of Climate Change, by Danish physicist Henrik Svensmark and former BBC science writer Nigel Calder (Icon Books), is due out in March.

Singer and Avery note that most of the earth’s recent warming occurred before 1940, and thus before much human-emitted CO2. Moreover, physical evidence shows 600 moderate warmings in the earth’s last million years. The evidence ranges from ancient Nile flood records, Chinese court documents and Roman wine grapes to modern spectral analysis of polar ice cores, deep seabed sediments, and layered cave stalagmites.

Unstoppable Global Warming shows the earth’s temperatures following variations in solar intensity through centuries of sunspot records, and finds cycles of sun-linked isotopes in ice and tree rings. The book cites the work of Svensmark, who says cosmic rays vary the earth’s temperatures by creating more or fewer of the low, wet clouds that cool the earth. It notes that global climate models can’t accurately register cloud effects.

The Chilling Stars relates how Svensmark’s team mimicked the chemistry of earth’s atmosphere, by putting realistic mixtures of atmospheric gases into a large reaction chamber, with ultraviolet light as a stand-in for the sun. When they turned on the UV, microscopic droplets—cloud seeds—started floating through the chamber.

“We were amazed by the speed and efficiency with which the electrons [generated by cosmic rays] do their work of creating the building blocks for the cloud condensation nuclei,” says Svensmark.

The Chilling Stars documents how cosmic rays amplify small changes in the sun’s irradiance fourfold, creating 1-2 degree C cycles in earth’s temperatures: Cosmic rays continually slam into the earth’s atmosphere from outer space, creating ion clusters that become seeds for small droplets of water and sulfuric acid. The droplets then form the low, wet clouds that reflect solar energy back into space. When the sun is more active, it shields the earth from some of the rays, clouds wane, and the planet warms.

Unstoppable Global Warming documents the reality of a moderate, natural, 1500-year climate cycle on the earth. The Chilling Stars explains the why and how.

Photos Democrats Don't Want You To See


I saw this on snopes.com and I felt compelled to pass it along. Michael Moore attempted to paint US military as cold hearted killers but he of course is an idiot. The democrats haven't really tried to dispel that theory either.

Read this from snopes...

This moving photograph shows Chief Master Sgt. John Gebhardt, superintendent of the 22nd Wing Medical Group at McConnell Air Force Base in Kansas, holding an injured Iraqi girl. The picture was taken in October 2006, while Sgt. Gebhardt was deployed to Balad Air Base in Iraq. According to the Air Force Print News, the infant girl Sgt. Gebhardt held in his arms "received extensive gunshot injuries to her head when insurgents attacked her family killing both of her parents and many of her siblings."

Sgt. Gebhardt is now back home in Wichita, Kansas, with his wife and two children. An Air Force Link article about the sudden fame he gained as the subject of this photograph reported that:
The chief had a knack for comforting [the injured Iraqi girl] and they often would catch a cat nap together in a chair.

"I got as much enjoyment out of it as the baby did," he said. "I reflected on my own family and life and thought about how lucky I have been."

While deployed to Iraq, the chief tried to help out any way he could. He figured holding a baby that needed comforting that would free up one more set of arms that could be providing care to more critical patients.

"I pray for the best for the Iraqi children," he said. "I can't tell the difference between their kids and our kids. The Iraqi parents have the same care and compassion for their children as any American."


Inspirational! I'm proud to be in the same town as this man.

Quote Of The Day

I am trying to prevent anyone saying the really foolish thing that people often say about Him, 'I'm ready to accept Jesus as a great moral teacher, but I don't accept His claim to be God.' That is the sort of thing we must not say. A man who was merely a man and said the sort of things Jesus said would not be a great moral teacher. He would either be a lunatic — on a level with the man who says he is a poached egg -- or He would be the devil of hell. You must make a choice. Either this man was, and is, the Son of God; or else a madman or something worse. You can shut Him up for a fool, you can spit at Him and kill him as a demon; or you can fall at His feet and call Him Lord and God. But let us not come with any patronizing nonsense about His being a great human teacher. He has not left that open to us. He did not intend to."
C.S. Lewis (from: Mere Christianity)

Do We Want A Woman President?

Women have tried for years to make it to the highest office in the world. Every time it's been close but no pink cigar. I am thoroughly convinced that we may very well have a woman as president sometime in my generation. Are we ready for that? Does a woman have what it takes to hold that office?

I am not convinced. I think women have the gentle touch that it would take to run the country when it comes to domestic issues. It's not hard. Just don't hike up taxes so much that it makes the people mad, and don't lower them so much so that roads don't get built. That's all it takes really to run the U.S.. Use the people's money wisely. I think a woman can definitely do that.
So do we want a woman taking on the evil president of Iran? Despite democrats rhetoric, this world is an evil place and it is NOT the U.S.'s fault. It's the fault of humankind and the greed of man. It's the result of sin, and placing self as God.
I don't trust a woman when it comes to keeping us safe from the most evil times we have ever lived in. This isn't a reality show, it's life and death.

The reason I feel this way is because of the women that have tried to become president. Not one woman that has run so far seems capable to me. Doesn't matter if they were a republican or a democrat. Hillary is a communist basically, and she only has power hunger in her eyes. That's not a reason to be president.

Most times I have heard anyone say, "I think a woman should be president.", it has been followed up with the reasoning that she should be president because she is a woman. Well Britney Spears is a woman, should she be president? My point being that maybe a woman should be president someday, but it better have nothing to do with the fact that she is a woman as the only reason.

Finally, Why? Why would a woman even want to be president? Men are violent thugs, and admittedly we are the cause of most of the violence in this world. Possibly some men weren't hugged enough by their mothers but that's beside the point. Why would women want to be leaders along side thugs, liars, and dictators?
Women have a more important role in this life then being president. They are the glue that holds society together. And until our own Margret Thatcher comes along I think a man will be president. I don't mind being labeled a sexist for thinking that. I'm not a sexist by the way, I just think that the most qualified should get the job whether black, white, woman, man, midget, giant, or albino. Word to your mother!

Mad Props To Ann Coulter

It's been so long since I have jumped on the Coulter train. But I have always been a fan of her harsh writings. She is hated by the democrats because she dishes out exactly what they do, and as we know they can dish it but they can't take it. She even has threats on her life on a regular basis. Not that we conservative Republicans are always gracious, but we generally live life a lot less vitrolic and angry.
She is a hero of mine because she says the things that we timid conservatives hold back on. You gotta love a woman with enough guts to say the controversial things that the rest of us are only thinking in our heads..

Here is a recent brilliant column by Ann Coulter. Read it. Agree with it. Love it...

THE DEMOCRATIC PARTY: A VAST SLEEPER CELL



Fortunately for liberals, the Iraqis executed Saddam Hussein the exact same week that former President Ford died, so it didn't seem strange that Nancy Pelosi's flag was at half-staff. Also, Saddam's death made it less of a snub when Harry Reid skipped Ford's funeral.

The passing of Gerald Ford should remind Americans that Democrats are always lying in wait, ready to force a humiliating defeat on America.

More troops, fewer troops, different troops, "redeployment" — all the Democrats' peculiar little talking points are just a way of sounding busy. Who are they kidding? Democrats want to cut and run as fast as possible from Iraq, betraying the Iraqis who supported us and rewarding our enemies — exactly as they did to the South Vietnamese under Ford.

Liberals spent the Vietnam War rooting for the enemy and clamoring for America's defeat, a tradition they have brought back for the Iraq war.

They insisted on calling the Soviet-backed Vietcong "the National Liberation Front of Vietnam," just as they call Islamic fascists killing Americans in Iraq "insurgents." Ho Chi Minh was hailed as a "Jeffersonian Democrat," just as Michael Moore compares the Islamic fascists in Iraq to the Minute Men.

During the Vietnam War, New York Times scion Arthur "Pinch" Sulzberger told his father that if an American soldier ran into a North Vietnamese soldier, he would prefer for the American to get shot. "It's the other guy's country," he explained.

Now, as publisher of the Times, Pinch does all he can to help the enemy currently shooting at American soldiers.

After a half-dozen years of Democrat presidents creating a looming disaster in Vietnam — with Kennedy ordering the assassination of our own ally in the middle of the war and Johnson ham-handedly choosing bombing targets from the Oval Office — in 1969, Nixon became president and the world was safe again.

Nixon began a phased withdrawal of American ground troops, while protecting the South Vietnamese by increasing the bombings of the North, mining North Vietnamese harbors and attacking North Vietnamese military supplies in Cambodia — all actions hysterically denounced by American liberals, eager for the communists to defeat America.

Favorite Quotes From The Phil Hendrie Show

I know nobody really cares about my obsession with the funniest radio show ever(R.I.P.). But it's my blog. I started it and I'll kill it.

"Guest" quotes...

Lloyd Bonafide

Ma'am while you we're all cozy in your home during the Korean conflict I was up to my neck in Moe Howard haircuts.

Buddy, you put your hands on me and you'll pull back two bloody stumps.

What's this Canadian doin' on the phone, okay, they haven't launched anything higher than a balloon.

You try to tailgate me on black ice, and the only charred remains they'll find that day will have a pith helmet on top of it.

I'll just let this beach bum here know: he ever grabs a phone out of my hands and he'll come back with just a wrist. No hand, just a wrist.


Steve Bosell

Sir, I have to admonish you: if you call me a crybaby again I can sue you.

She has not won a case yet for me and we've sued, probably, in the last three years... several hundred people, but this one-- gosh, I feel so good about it.


R.C. Collins

When I go to Iraq I'll be a one-man killing machine.

This girl sounds like her tubes are tying themselves together.


Jeff Dowder

You may not believe it, but I got a certified I.Q. of 175.

Chinamen are really good at ping pong because of their horizontal sight, they see the whole net.

Lettuce gives itself over willingly to the sandwich.


Vernon Dozier

If you were in my class I'd put you in the corner for sounding like Porky Ding-dang Pig.

All you need, Jim, is the courage to say to her, "Get in there a make me some bean dip!"

Larry Grover

You are scum... I'll see you soon. I'll see you-- you've got a fight comin', it's comin' today.


David G. Hall

Every time you open your mouth you sink into a bigger swamp of dumb.

Now you wanna shank me in the back, huh? Old fashioned jail style. Shiv me out in the yard, right underneath the goal.

Do you know what it looks like when a child has to hopscotch without leg braces…just crawling from square to square?

It looks like someone set her face on fire and put it out with a track shoe.

If I Had A Choice Of Names

We are all given a name at birth and it stays with us forever. I love my name, but in my ideal world here is a few names I wish I'd been born with...

Lance Powers...This name exudes confidence.

Stewart Molldune...I'd become a cop and be known as Officer Molldune.

Bob Lablaw...Stole this one from Arrested Development. Great name, say it fast!

Peter McGinley...Masculine yet sensitive.

John Calhoon...People trust a guy named John Calhoon.

Mark Ker...Self explanatory.

Angus Johnson...There is probably 850 ways to make fun of this name, it would have made me tough.

Terrell Jones...Think of the shock when I turned out to be white. People would be confused. I love it.

That's it, and no this post does not indicate that I have run out of relevant posts. It only confirms that I never had relevant posts in the first place!

My Favorite Phil Hendrie Guests

People don't get my fascination with the former radio show. I love it because it's brilliant.

Check out some of these "guests"

Cowboy Jim
Cowboy Jim is the host of a live children's TV show, ala Captain Kangaroo. All skits seem to end with Cowboy Jim being hit in the 'scrotillia', or killed.


Dave Oliva
An aspiring latino LAPD officer and resident of Monterey Park, CA who frequently berates older people. Owner of a Chevy El Camino with tuck-and-roll seats, Chi Chi balls in the mirror, "Mambo #5" printed on the rear window, and a "Tell her she's Lovely" bumber sticker.

Dave often asks Phil or his callers "How do you like me now?"

Dave is very dedicated to becoming an LAPD officer, doing such things as watching 'Cops' and gory slasher movies without blinking to toughen himself up for "the realities of the street," that he will eventually have to face as a police officer. He often uses his "police training" to obtain compliance from customers at his workplace (e.g., using his police command voice to get others to clean off their plates at the restaurant for which he waiters).

Dr. Jim Sadler
He is a veterinarian, dentist, and psychiatrist. In recent years, Dr. Sadler has been working out (often in a thong in his front yard for all the neighbors to see), so as to better to "oil up" and intimidate others with how ripped he is. He often threatens physical violence on callers who disagree with him or informs them that they wouldn't dare say such things in front of him because he is so "ripped." Dr. Sadler is at least fifty years old, and is married to a twenty-year-old woman. His voice (stereotypical Jewish New Yorker) seems to be loosely based on two strange characters that Phil did before his employment in Los Angeles: Brad from his Minneapolis employment and Rick Seiderman from his Miami employment.

Still One Of The Best Presidents Ever

He knew what we had to do in Iraq, and he did the right thing. Some of us still believe that, including those that are actually fighting the war. The democrats are bent on making sure these men will die in vain.
The President cares about this country more than we know, I truly believe that. I couldn't care less if that puts me in the minority or not. We didn't get our morals from opinion polls.

Word Of Advice

Recently, I went to Wal-Mart to look for shampoo and soap. I scanned the aisles for my usual. But then something caught my eye. It was in one bottle. It was Red Zone Hair and Body Shampoo for men. It's a soap-poo for lack of better term. Well let me just say I was excited...For the same price as my usual soap, I can get a bottle that will cover my hair and my body soap needs. I decided to get two bottles. I left excited about my find.

The next morning I awoke with glee ready to use my new all-washing soap/shampoo combo. I scrubbed and scrubbed. I was clean!

I WAS clean.

Then I wasn't.

My body stayed clean. My hair started getting all nappy just hours later. I tried it the next day again with the same result.

A word of advice...

If you see a new cool product, try for a free sample first before you commit to two bottles of the stuff. I'm selling it on ebay. kidding, but I wish I could.

Timeless Truth

Some of these may be repeats from years past because again I can't deny certain stuff this year.
By the way, truth is not relative so either I'm right or wrong about these and not both. And you guessed it, I'm right.

* There is a God, and only one true God.

* That God is the God of the Bible.

* Jesus is the first, last, and only hope.

* Modern day liberalism is a disease of the mind.

* The government should be used to build roads and keep the peace...and that's about it.

* The cell phone is the single worst invention ever created. "Hi honey, I'm home." is an irrelevant sentence when you've been on the phone 8 times with your spouse throughout the day. We can't converse anymore.

* We enjoy death as a society. Tool actually said something right for once when they said "I need to watch things die, from a good safe distance. Much better you than I."

* Celebrities should never get married. They will not stay married, almost universally.

* Wal-mart is not an evil corporation, they are the essence of the American dream. It makes no sense to put a ceiling on success, supply and demand will control the rest.

* TV is dull and without merit or any redeemable value, I still watch it.

* If you have a choice, always choose McDonalds over Applebees. You will get much better service, you will save money, and the floor will be much cleaner. Plus, hello, two apple pies for $1.00, and the smiles are free!

* I'm not sure a woman can handle the job of President Of The United States. Also, I don't believe we are even ready for that. The right woman has not come along yet. And Hillary ain't it. Thank God!

* That's what I'm talking about!

Birthday Smirthday

Ok, so maybe I am a little scroogesque when it comes to birthdays. If someone wants to make a big deal about your birthday when it comes up, you should act gracious and excited, and you should probably mean it. Other than that Birthdays are just like any other days. You still have to wear pants on that day. You can't hit people in the head with hammers that day. Happy day!

Quote Of The Day

"There comes a time when you should stop expecting other people to make a big deal about your birthday. That time is age eleven."

-- Dave Barry

Amen Dave. No offense to all you twenty somethings that throw childish shindigs for your own birthday, but, nobody cares. It's also just as annoying when you throw one for your friend who is in their twenties and expect everyone to come and be excited about it. Your gift is not dying that year, call me when you grow up.

3. O.J. will tell us how he didn't not kill nobody.

4. Salsa will cease to be America's #1 condiment.

5. Old Maid will become the #1 card game in America. Uno will only be played by posers and wannabes.

6. This blog will continue it's current run with blatent medicrity.

7. Starbucks will raise their coffee prices to "priceless".

8. Cracks will be stepped on, mother's backs...broken.

9. Kid Rock will finally grow up and change his name to Arnold William Rock.

10. Reese's Peanut Butter Cup sales will go through the rough, so following in their footsteps Helmans will introduce new Chocolate Mayonaise.

I have spoken!
