I have to tell you, from start to finish, this was a heart stopper of a game! Super Bowl XLVI was one for the record books. And the last few minutes? Shit, I do think my heart stopped and started too many damn times!
But still, the NEW YORK GIANTS won!!!!!
And of course to GIANTS.COM…SUPER BOWL WINNERS!!!
Now the commercials. Geesh, some were pitiful and should not have run at all (hear me godaddy?). But the best, according to me, were the Doritos, the eTrade and last this one from Skechers.
Last month it was revealed that Skechers decided to ditch Super Bowl spokesshill Kim Kardashian in favor of a French bulldog named Mr. Quiggly. The ad in question just aired, and you can watch it above.
Here’s hoping that replacing attention whore fameballs with cute dogs becomes a thing.
Madonna was okay, so-so. I mean, terrible dancing for the most part and at times lousy syncing to the music. But still, not bad looking for her age (53).

And then Chrysler had a great commercial, but since it only aired at halftime and not during the game, it will not be on the ad polls. Unless a lot of people write in for them!
While Ford and GM duke it out on the sidelines, Chrysler looks poised to take home the championship ring yet again with its inspirational “Halftime in America” ad spot starring American institution Clint Eastwood.
The New York Times notes that the ad’s placement — halftime — will keep it off traditional post-game ad polls. I just hope it won’t be too embarrassing for the other ad agencies when they’re beat by a write-in candidate.
President Obama just may have lost the election
The president signed off on a Health and Human Services ruling that says that under ObamaCare, Catholic institutions—including charities, hospitals and schools—will be required by law, for the first time ever, to provide and pay for insurance coverage that includes contraceptives, abortion-inducing drugs and sterilization procedures. If they do not, they will face ruinous fines in the millions of dollars. Or they can always go out of business.
In other words, the Catholic Church was told this week that its institutions can’t be Catholic anymore.
I invite you to imagine the moment we are living in without the church’s charities, hospitals and schools. And if you know anything about those organizations, you know it is a fantasy that they can afford millions in fines.
There was no reason to make this ruling—none. Except ideology.
The conscience clause, which keeps the church itself from having to bow to such decisions, has always been assumed to cover the church’s institutions.
Now the church is fighting back. Priests in an estimated 70% of parishes last Sunday came forward to read strongly worded protests from the church’s bishops. The ruling asks the church to abandon Catholic principles and beliefs; it is an abridgment of the First Amendment; it is not acceptable. They say they will not bow to it. They should never bow to it, not only because they are Catholic and cannot be told to take actions that deny their faith, but because they are citizens of the United States.
If they stay strong and fight, they will win. This is in fact a potentially unifying moment for American Catholics, long split left, right and center. Catholic conservatives will immediately and fully oppose the administration’s decision. But Catholic liberals, who feel embarrassed and undercut, have also come out in opposition.
The church is split on many things. But do Catholics in the pews want the government telling their church to contravene its beliefs? A president affronting the leadership of the church, and blithely threatening its great institutions? No, they don’t want that. They will unite against that.
The smallest part of this story is political. There are 77.7 million Catholics in the United States. In 2008 they made up 27% of the electorate, about 35 million people. Mr. Obama carried the Catholic vote, 54% to 45%. They helped him win.
They won’t this year. And guess where a lot of Catholics live? In the battleground states.
Bin Laden leads undead terrorists in the explosion-filled Osombie trailer
The biggest issue on tap for the 2012 presidential campaign season? Dealing with zombie terrorists. In the independent horror film Osombie, Osama Bin Laden will emerge from his water grave to convert Afghanistan — and eventually the world — to his zombie fundamentalism.
African America Militiaman James Johnson Testifies Before Congress where he tells them that Americans are fed up with being treated like subjects instead of free men!
And again, do read the Bare Naked Islam blog! The islamics and their buddies (liberals and obama for instance) really do want to take over the world and kill us all.
All these dirtbag, anti-American, flag burning, rock throwing, occupiers should be arrested and deported (taking away their passports first) to North Korea and Yemen. Or Somalia for any overflow.
Screw their first amendment rights! They forfeited those rights when they burned our flag, call for the killing of our police, disobeying the laws of the land, and so much more.
(INN) — The Iranian parliament’s official website has published an article calling on the government to attack Israel before the end of the year.
According to Israeli TV Channel 2?s veteran Middle East expert, Ehud Yaari, the article cites three reasons for the call.
First – a religious fatwa allowing such a strike. Second – threats from Israel regarding a planned strike on Iran. And third – Iran’s alleged military capability to carry out such an attack.
The article specifies that the area between Lod and Jerusalem should be targeted, as well as Tel Nof Air Force Base.
The article seems to be part of a recent trend in Iran to step up the rhetoric regarding a possible attack on Israel. Iran’s supreme leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, said Friday that Israel is a “cancerous tumor that should be cut and will be cut.”
Forghani called on his leaders to target Israeli sites using land-to-land missiles. Ballistic Sijil missiles should be launched at Tel Aviv, Jerusalem and Haifa, he suggested, as well as power stations and other vital infrastructure. Then, Shahab 3 and Ghader missiles should target the rest of Israel’s population centers. Nine minutes would suffice for “total annihilation,” he predicted
And how our liberal press reports what Iran says, just as they report what other islamic assholes say, and the New York Times is just the tip of the liberal press.
The world needs Israel to stop Iran. For damn sure Obama aint gonna do a damn thing, since he wants to talk and talk and talk about the situations.
The Iranian government, through a website proxy, has laid out the legal and religious justification for the destruction of Israel and the slaughter of its people.
The doctrine includes wiping out Israeli assets and Jewish people worldwide.
Calling Israel a danger to Islam, the conservative website Alef, with ties to Iran’s supreme leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, said the opportunity must not be lost to remove “this corrupting material. It is a ‘jurisprudential justification” to kill all the Jews and annihilate Israel, and in that, the Islamic government of Iran must take the helm.”
The article, written by Alireza Forghani, a conservative analyst and a strategy specialist in Khamenei’s camp, now is being run on most state-owned conservative sites, including the Revolutionary Guards’ Fars News Agency, showing that the regime endorses this doctrine.
Because Israel is going to attack Iran’s nuclear facilities, Iran is justified in launching a pre-emptive, cataclysmic attack against the Jewish state, the doctrine argues.
On Friday, in a major speech at prayers, Khamenei announced that Iran will support any nation or group that attacks the “cancerous tumor” of Israel. Though his statement was seen by some in the West as fluff, there is substance behind it.
Iran’s Defense Ministry announced this weekend that it test-fired an advanced two-stage, solid-fuel ballistic missile and boasted about successfully putting a new satellite into orbit, reminding the West that its engineers have mastered the technology for intercontinental ballistic missiles even as the Islamic state pushes its nuclear weapons program.
The commander of the Revolutionary Guards, Brig. Gen. Seyyed Mehdi Farahi, stated in August that the Safir missile, which is capable of transporting a satellite into space, can easily be launched parallel to the earth’s orbit, which will transform it into an intercontinental ballistic missile. Western analysts didn’t believe this would happen until 2015. Historically, orbiting a satellite is the criterion for crediting a nation with ICBM capability.
Forghani details the Islamic duty of jihad as laid out in the Quran for the sake of Allah and states that “primary jihad,” according to some Shiite jurists, can only occur when the Hidden Imam, the Shiites’ 12th Imam Mahdi, returns. Shiites believe Mahdi’’s return will usher in Armageddon.
(Reuters) — President Barack Obama said on Sunday there were important risks to consider before any military strike against Iran and made clear he does not want to see more conflict in the oil-producing Gulf region.
In a television interview, Obama also said he did not believe Tehran had the “intentions or capabilities” to attack the United States, playing down the threats from Tehran and saying he wanted a diplomatic end to the nuclear standoff.
“Any kind of additional military activity inside the Gulf is disruptive and has a big effect on us. It could have a big effect on oil prices. We’ve still got troops in Afghanistan, which borders Iran. And so our preferred solution here is diplomatic,” Obama said.
His comments echoed concerns expressed by earlier by Iran’s neighbor Turkey that an attack on Iran would be disastrous.
Obama, who is up for re-election in November, has ended the U.S. war in Iraq and is winding down combat in Afghanistan amid growing public discontent about American war spending at a time when the economy remains shaky.
He said Israel had not yet decided what to do in response to the escalating tension but was “rightly” concerned about Tehran’s plans.
(Israel better not kowtow to Obama!)
