Wal - Mart To Tighten Gun Sale Procedures

By D. E. Carson, published on Apr 15, 2008

...that he lifted the weapon from you and you’re going to be seen by the police as some accomplice in the crime – even if you reported it stolen. Sorry, that’s just how screwed up our judicial system is these days.

The whole plan is part of a coalition of retailers established by New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg as part of his Responsible Firearms Retailer Partnership, which he established two years ago with Boston Mayor Thomas Menino. The project was intended to stop the flow of guns from retail display cases to the hands of criminals. This idea will be as effective at... (more)

Midget Michael Jackson & O So Much More!

By Venditto, published on Apr 14, 2008

People talk about the Guggenheim Museum and Lincoln Center as examples of New York City's cultural offerings, but those of us in the know, knowwhere to go when we want toexperience true artistry. Deep in the bowels of the Earth, buried underneath the corner of 6th Avenue and 34th Street, lies an underground lairof awesomosity humbly disguised as a subway station.

It's true that to the casual observer this sweet subterranean space is but a mere stop forsubway trains, but trust me there's a world of culture brewing down there just waiting to be soaked up- and it's all FREE!

Liberal Lies Are S. O. P.

By D. E. Carson, published on Apr 12, 2008

This one is for my friends in New York. If you happen to listen to former Air(head) America liberal talk-show host, Randi Rhodes, you may have heard back in October that she was mugged near her Manhattan apartment in an attack which cost her several teeth and was planned by the right-wing conservative movement as a response to her program.

And the Federal Reserve is planning to release a $26 bill with John F. Kennedy’s picture on it.

According to the New York Daily News, reports of Ms. Rhodes being mugged were as phony as a $26 bill. In fact the rumor of her attack being a mugging... (more)

You Don't Know Bennie?

By 'Mean' Mike Duffau, published on Apr 11, 2008

...out of him. Then I almost made a champion out of Oscar Muniz if he would've stuck with me. I had a title fight cut and dry for him... I know he would've won. So I would've had four champions.

Tell me about how you were awarded Manager Of The Year?

I went back to New York for a convention and I spoke to the editor of The Ring magazine. I think I had just Danny Lopez as champion. "I says you know what I'm gonna end up with about three champions without any body's help and without anybody helping promote him or anything". He says, "If you do that you're... (more)

Resurrecting The Champ

By 'Mean' Mike Duffau, published on Apr 3, 2008

... of 44-12-2 and 30 of those wins by way of knockout. If you look at the places that he fought you wouldn't think that this Welterweight from Aberdeen, Mississippi could accomplish so much in his life. He fought east and west from the Olympic Auditorium in Los Angeles to Madison Square Garden in New York City. He fought places in between such as Arizona, Nebraska, Texas, and Las Vegas to name a few. His career took him outside of the mainland to fight in Honolulu, Hawaii, Manila, Philippines (which was for the vacant WBC light welterweight title against Pedro Adigue jr.) Buenos Aires,... (more)

L.A. Sanctuary Status Makes Mayor Libel For Teen's Murder

By D. E. Carson, published on Mar 30, 2008

...are rumors that his position as co-chairman of Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign may come with a cabinet position should she be elected. Does this surprise anybody? Why hasn’t the local L.A. media picked up on this? Because all mainstream media in America – whether it be in LA or New York or Bedford Falls is in the tank for the Democrats and the Democrats want open border anarchy so that they can give amnesty to every illegal alien and essentially buy their support when it counts.

Opinion of the mayor of Los Angeles might be different if there were something by which one ... (more)

My 2008 National League Picks: The Mets: As Good As It Gets!

By Ed Attanasio, published on Mar 30, 2008

Here are my NL picks. Special thanks again to Eric Gouldsberry and all of the folks at www.thisgreatgame.com.

NL EAST

After pulling one of the worst choke jobs in the history of baseball (’51 Brooklyn Dodgers, anyone?) the New York Mets are better for one reason: Johan Santana. It was a major move getting the all-star pitcher and the dividends should be immediate. If he wins 15 games, it will be a disappointment, let’s put it that way. There are still several question marks on this team, however. One is age. Moises Alou, Luis Castillo and Carlos Delgado aren’t... (more)

The Heart Of Africa In The Heart Of New York City

By TheTruth, published on Mar 30, 2008

...in the Joyce Theatre that night, as these 22 members who have lost so much are still able to look toward a brighter day as they bring smiles and cheer from people all across America as their share their talents and their continued success.

The soulful singing, vibrant dance moves and powerful music all came together to create a spectacular performance unprecedented by anything else I have ever seen. Although the show has already left New York, I know hundreds of more concert-goers throughout the country will enjoy this unique contemporary work of art as much as I have.

My 2008 American League Picks: The Tigers Will Soar!

By Ed Attanasio, published on Mar 28, 2008

...hot young stars of tomorrow, if not today (Ellsbury, Jonathan Papelbon and Dustin Pedroia). Unless there’s a mass outbreak of injury, the Red Sox should have no problem returning to the top of the AL East.

To say what I just said of the Red Sox sounds awfully dismissive of the New York Yankees’ chances. That’s correct. I’m not anticipating another fall of the Yankee Empire, but there’s serious potential for some cracks to start developing with a roster that’s either aging or inexperienced. Think about it. Reigning AL MVP Alex Rodriguez is one of ... (more)

Broo Deathmatch - Second Half First Round Results...

By Glenn T, published on Mar 24, 2008

...he lives. His latest article about sticking it to the IRS (in an purely intellectual way, of course) has garnered a Jen-and-Tonic-esque ten thousand or so hits – and put him squarely at the top of the Broo NY empire. However, I submit that no matter whether you’re the King of New York or not, you just don’t mess with a guy named Crowbar. Crowbar in a stunner… on the sweet sixteen (whatever you do, don’t call him “sweet” though)

Joseph Mael vs. Hassassin

This matchup has it all: intrigue, bad blood, smack talking and... (more)
