Tony Dungy is right

So former NFL coach Tony Dungy made a plain and simple statement about Michael Sam:

"I wouldn't have taken him,'' Dungy told the Tampa Bay Tribune. “Not because I don't believe Michael Sam should have a chance to play, but I wouldn't want to deal with all of it. 
"It's not going to be totally smooth ... things will happen."

Naturally, the Tolerance Brigade is up in arms, calling Tony Dungy everything but a white boy.  And for what?  For simply stating his opinion as to what he would have done as a coach.

And let's be honest here, shall we?  Michael Sam wasn't first round talent.  Or second round talent.  Or third round talent.  He was picked up in the seventh round of the draft, and after his combine performance I have my doubts as to if he deserved to go that high.

Oh, so he was SEC Defensive Player of the Year?  Whoop-de-friggin-do.  Quick, name the Big 12 Defensive Player of the Year, who wasn't even drafted.

What?  A Defensive Player of the Year who didn't get drafted?  B-b-b-b-b-but, that's unpossible!  Michael Sam!  Homophobia!

Yeah, whatever.  I won't even mention about how Sam's face looks like he's about ready to burst into tears at the drop of a hat; the guy is mediocre talent at best.  If he were not gay, you would have never heard of him unless your team drafted him.  What, you don't believe me?  Quick, how many other seventh-round picks had film crews there, with a cake and a significant other?  None, that's who.  How many other seventh-round draft picks were pushing for their own TV show from Oprah?  None, that's who.

So Tony Dungy wouldn't want to deal with the Michael Sam circus as a coach.  You know what?  I wouldn't either!  Can you imagine the hate that Jeff Fisher is going to get if he doesn't kow-tow to the gay mafia?  Who the hell would want that?

Tony Dungy was perfectly right in what he said.  The fact that the Gay Mafia is howling for his scalp proves how right he is - if Michael Sam had first round talent, it wouldn't even be an issue.  First rounders bring their own media circus with them half the time.  But some mediocre guy who probably only got drafted because he was gay and the NFL knew exactly how bright the spotlights were on them?

I wouldn't want him on my team either.

Oh, the Big 12 Defensive Player of the Year who didn't get drafted?  Jackson Jeffcoat.  Got picked up by my Seahawks as an undrafted free agent.

Oh, nope the hell out

Ladies - if you're having marital problems, and your husband says (or writes) some things to you in private that you're not happy with, the last thing you want to do is post it on Reddit, m'kay?

This guy needs to dump his wife like a bad habit.  There is no way in hell I would ever stay with a cold, non-sexual, neutering bitch like that.

Is that harsh?  Good, it needs to be harsh.  This "woman", and I use the term loosely, wants to complain about her husbands immature behavior while she's posting their dirty laundry on Reddit?????

Nope.  Nope the hell right outta that marriage, because it's not going to get any better from there.

Preparation

The Ragin' Mrs. and I have been taking several classes that we think may come in handy, even if it's just to impress your friends on a camping trip.

We took classes that taught us how to make cordage from raw materials found in nature.  How to make stone tools.  How to build a shelter out of nothing.  How to find and purify water.  How to start a fire by friction.

Today we're going to learn how to make a bow and arrows.

It's always nice to be prepared.  The ultimate tool you have is your brain; everything else is just accessories.

Update:  Bonus on the day?  Class was full of Boy Scouts doing their Scout thing.  Which meant that I got to spend the day around a whole bunch of polite, well-mannered, engaging teenagers (and their Scout Leaders) as we all learned the same thing.

After living in this festering shithole for two years, it's a joy to meet some folks who are just plain good people.

What a worthless moron

So a civilian jetliner gets shot down, most likely by a Russian missile, dozens of Americans are dead, and President Bumblefuck still has to get his photo-op in while he can.  Because hey, dead Americans, no big deal to this fucking jackass, right?  Why should he care, right?  They were probably all racist 1%er teabaggers anyways, knowwhatImsayin?

The longer I watch this incompetent buffoon do his level best to wreck America, the angrier I get with the people who elected him.  Obama is just a symptom of the cancer that is destroying the formerly great country of the USA.  The real disease are the people who elect worthless shitheads like Obama into office.

Busy today

So you know the deal.  No clickee at workee, m'kay?  I guarantee that the Bossman won't like this flashing on his work computers.

Unless you work at one of those places.  You perv.





Well, lookie here!

It seems that criminals don't like it when their victims can fight back!

“I don’t want to take away from the good work our investigators are doing, but I think part of the drop in crime, and robberies in particular, is because criminals are thinking twice that citizens could be armed.”
According to The Detroit News, there have been 37 percent fewer robberies, 22 percent fewer break-ins and 30 percent fewer carjackings this so far in 2014 compared to the same period last year. 
“I can’t say what specific percentage is caused by this, but there’s no question in my mind it has had an effect,” Craig said.

If ordinary citizens carrying guns can have this effect in Detroit, just imagine what it can do for your city!

Got halfway home today

And my rear tire went flat.  It wasn't flat when I left work, but as I was pedaling my butt home I started to feel every bump in the bike path.  Looked down, saw flat tire.

Fuck.

So now I get to buy a new tube and put it in.  I could be doing so many better things right now.

Kinda-sorta update:  I'm putting a patch on it right now, so we'll see what happens.  The tire has to be inflated to 70-75psi, so I don't know how well a patch is going to hold.
