How LSU and Alabama really got into the BCS Championship

By SanityCheck2, published on Dec 23, 2011

The 2011 installment of the BCS National Championship Lottery is complete with LSU and Alabama winning the Sweepstakes and the right to play for the coveted but largely meaningless Division 1-A college Football National Championship. As in years past, no one has the slightest idea how these two teams came out on top but by prior arrangement, everyone is contractually obligated to accept this decision. Predictably, LSU and Alabama fans are ecstatic and everyone else is simply pissed off. This year’s big losers were Stanford, Oklahoma State, Arkansas, Oregon, college football in general, and... (more)

Desperate Bears: Favre is just a phone call away

By SanityCheck2, published on Dec 8, 2011

The Chicago Bears who have obtained most of their quarterbacks from the loading docks at UPS or college football powerhouse Vanderbilt are rumored to be so desperate for a quarterback, they are considering pulling Brett Favre’s butt out of a Bass boat in Mississippi and un-retiring for the umpteenth time, the aging wonder.

Two weeks ago, the Bears number one quarterback Jay Cutler was injured attempting to stop a San Diego touchdown reception which unfortunately he had thrown. Given Jay’s performance over the last few years, replacing Cutler should have been a relatively simple thing... (more)

Ray Lewis American Academy of Neurology's Man of the Year

By SanityCheck2, published on Nov 15, 2011

The American Academy of Neurology has named Baltimore Raven’s hit man Ray Lewis it’s “Man of the Year” for his continued helmet to helmet cheap shots on opposing players. One of the Doctor’s on the selection committee speaking off the record and clearly fearing for the safety of his family, stated that Ray’s deliberate cheap shots have caused more head injuries than the revocation of Florida’s Motorcycle helmet laws.

Lewis who is not half the player he once was is still feared by most in the NFL including Baltimore Raven’s management. Apparently trade rumors swirled around Ray in 2010... (more)

Come on Newt, is that the best you got?

By SanityCheck2, published on Oct 24, 2011

Newt Gingrich who was apparently named after a mud sucking amphibian and a Conservative Republican who never let his religious or political affiliations get in the way of a good extra martial tryst has weighed in on the “Occupy Wall Street” phenomenon and as expected he doesn’t like the protesters. The problem is, most Americans are tired of listening to the crap spewing forth from the likes of Newt. In a nation trillions of dollars in debt, with a health care system run by insurance companies, fighting two wars no one wants, a real estate market sabotaged by the banking industry's PACs; an... (more)

Occupy Wall Street: Stay the Course

By SanityCheck2, published on Oct 18, 2011

Eric Candor (R-Virginia) has his priorities so tuned into big business that he has turned his back on the hard-working MAJORITY of Republicans that are fast becoming unemployed and bankrupt; VICTIMS of Candor’s elitism.

The Republican Party has completely lost touch with rank and file Republicans and is now nothing more than an instrument of the Wealthy. And for the record Eric, I am a 56 year old Republican and sick of the crap. Congress found billions of dollars to bail out financial institutions like Citibank, Bank of America and Wells Fargo.

These companies ONLY SURVIVED BECAUSE... (more)

Standard & Poor’s deliberate attempt to trash U.S. Economy

By SanityCheck2, published on Aug 8, 2011

The United States Government which throughout its entire history has always paid its bills is now the subject of a smear campaign by Standard & Poor’s. To be specific, Standard & Poor’s CEO Deven Sharma who has never had anything nice to say about the United States and in fact, is an Indian national and the moving force behind the irresponsible but politically motivated recent downgrading of the United States bond ratings. Sharma is a staunch critic of the United States and opportunistically and irresponsibly attempted to deliver a body blow to the American people and economy at the... (more)

HP's new corporate edict: Destroy the US IT workforce

By SanityCheck2, published on Jul 27, 2011

Hewlett Packard or HP at one time was an American company that epitomized the American Dream: two American entrepreneurs with a lot of engineering talent, innovative ideas and hard work built their company into a shining example of how capitalism works. While this is admirable in the U.S. it apparently doesn’t play well in other nations where Americans are often considered lazy and lacking ambition. Until recently, this assessment wasn’t a problem for most Americans who simply accepted it as a mixture of envy and ignorance by those less fortunate.

What few could predict was the paradigm... (more)

Message to Disabled Vets: You are unwanted in Evans Georgia

By SanityCheck2, published on Jun 30, 2011

Sergeant First Class Sean Gittens was terribly wounded from an improvised explosive device during his third combat tour this one in Iraq. A head injury resulting in a stroke left Sean unable to speak and paralyzed from the waist down. The Gittens family was residing in a rented home in the Knob Hill Subdivision of Evans Georgia which is basically a suburb of Augusta. No doubt the location was chosen by the Gittens family due to its proximity to Ft. Gordon and the Dwight D Eisenhower Medical Center.

Enter “Homes for our Troops” an organization of volunteers and true Americans that believes... (more)

CIA Director: Raid on Bin Laden was world wide effort

By SanityCheck2, published on May 4, 2011

Apparently, the CIA, NFL, the British Royal Family, Charlie Sheen, Muammar Gaddafi and the U.S. Navy Seal Team Six were all involved in an elaborate plan designed to get Bin Laden. While the details of this clandestine operation will probably be shrouded in mystery until Ron Howard, Steven Spielberg and Tom Hanks release the movie, some of the particulars have emerged incredibly without the purchase of a movie ticket.

Things are still a bit sketchy but apparently, the CIA planned their attack on Bin LAden's compound to coincide with the nFL draft. Shortly before the NFL Draft, Muammar... (more)

Yes Virgina The Vietnam Vets were spat on

By SanityCheck2, published on May 3, 2011

I have spent nearly three years researching and writing a book about the ill-behaved antics of those in the Vietnam Antiwar movement and its hostility towards those serving in the military of the United States. I was in the USAF from 1973 through 1977 and suffered some deprivations at the hands of these zealots. While most of the fighting involving the U.S. military was over prior to my enlistment, thanks to the constant ministrations of those in the antiwar movement, I and my fellow enlistees enjoyed a social standing normally reserved for petty criminals and street mimes. Changing out of... (more)
