March 3, 2016, perhaps the most interesting day in politics ever

First, we had Mitt “the Glove” Romney come out of the blue or from under whatever rock he has been hiding under for the last four years and give a speech that lambasted the republican front runner Donald Trump. And what a speech it was! He calls Trump, who was a big-time Romney backer four years ago, a fraud, a phony and a failed business man. Call him what you want, but I really don’t think Trump is an idiot or a failed businessman. Romney, actually advocated a contested convention by suggesting voters vote for Rubio in FL and Kasich in OH, should STFU and go back under his rock. Deep under. He did more damage to the party of Lincoln and Reagan in that speech than Trump has done in the entire campaign. Don’t they realize how horrific they come across? How stupid and petulant they sound? He is a failed candidate and the principal architect of Obamacare and no one really cares what he has to say anymore since he is no longer relevant. I was surprised he got so much press, but it was planned that way and I don’t think it really worked.

Then, the debate. Just wow. The thing devolved quickly into a shouting match and a “whose got the bigger dick” contest. I have concluded, after watching the debate and reading the reviews of it today, that John Kasich has the biggest schlong on that stage by a goodly margin. His balls must dwarf those of Ted “Don’t Call me Tom” Cruz and Marco “The Little Bot” Rubio. Kasich did not engage in silly personal attacks. He did not insult his opponents or make snide personal comments. He didn’t talk over the other debaters or the moderators. He was respectful and intelligent and offers real hope and good ideas. Kasich comes to the dance with nearly impeccable credentials. He doesn’t shout. He has real Head of State experience and serious cred in the national arena. He doesn’t act like a third grader who just got his favorite toy taken away by his diapered arch-rival in the sand box.

John Kasich would smoke Hilleroid Clinton in the general election in my opinion.

John Kasich is now my guy. Which puts me in the company of strange bedfellows since for Kasich to get the nod, he has to see a contested convention at this stage. Maybe Romney should give a few more speeches before returning to his very expensive hidey hole.

PS: Megyn Kelly is a goddess.

Go Hawks!

CATAGORIES: FEEL GOOD STORIES,i love it when this happens,SPORTS — FloridaBill @ 8:07 am

Tonight, the Chicago Blackhawks face off against the Tampa Bay Lightning for all of the glory in professional hockey.

When I grew up in Tampa, we didn’t know what hockey was, much less have a professional team in the Stanley Cup finals. Since relocating to Chicago in the mid-nineties, I have become a Blackhawks fan. After all, they have the best logo in sports. They are going for their third Stanley Cup in six years. Watching the Hawks with Sal and “fire-pitting” has been most enjoyable.

Should be entertaining. Go Hawks!

Also in Chicago sports this week, we have a new basketball coach for the Bulls. When introduced, Fred Hoiberg just repeated the phrase “say my name!”. The Bulls treated former coach Thibideau badly and could have shown more class. I liked Thibs. He took us to the playoffs every year since becoming the Bulls head coach. I would rather he be our coach than the opponents coach. I predict he ends up in New Orleans…

Found this on the FoxNews site:

Jon Kitna, who came out of retirement this week to rejoin the Dallas Cowboys as an emergency backup QB, was teaching math and coaching football at a high school when opportunity came knocking. And now that he’s back in the league, he hasn’t forgotten where he came from.

Kitna’s donating his entire $53,000 game check from Sunday’s game against the Eagles to Lincoln High in his native Tacoma, Wash., the Dallas Morning News reported. And if the Cowboys win and make the playoffs, who knows how big that donation could be.


November 20, 2013


The U.S. Supreme Court today vacated two stays of execution for convicted murderer Joseph Paul Franklin. The decision clears the way for Missouri to proceed with his execution.

Franklin is on death row for the 1977 murder of Gerald Gordon outside a synagogue in St. Louis. He’s been blamed for 22 killings between 1977 and 1980 in a bid to start a race war.

In addition to the killings, Franklin admitted to the attempted assassinations of Hustler magazine publisher Larry Flynt in 1978 and civil rights leader Vernon Jordan in 1980. Flynt, who was paralyzed by Franklin’s bullet, has called for clemency for Franklin, saying “the government has no business at all being in the business of killing people.”
