Welcome to the Realm™ - Version 5.0...
________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________





I try  to do this every year, but more often than not there just isn’t time to give it justice.  Which translates into a crappy post.

Oh, well – here goes…

2011 was the year of the Occutard.  The Occupussy.  The Occuchickenshit.  The lazy-assed, shiftless, shitheaded assholes of douchebaggery who think they entitled  to what we’ve worked so hard for, just because.

It started in September in New York City as “Occupy Wall Street” – and, when Michael Bloomberg, aka “Bloomberg the Ball-less” – being the pansy-ass he is – refused to kick them out, the bowel movement spread to other cities (and countries) as well, including a tiny one here at Realm™ Headquarters.

Supposedly, according to Wiki (for all they themselves have zero credibility), the so-called “Occupiers” are

protes[ing]…against social and economic inequality, high unemployment, greed, as well as corruption, and the undue influence of corporations—particularly from the financial services sector—on government. The protesters’ slogan We are the 99% refers to the growing income and wealth inequality in the U.S. between the wealthiest 1% and the rest of the population.

It’s all bullshit, of course – basically, these pusstards want what you & I have, and they don’t want to have to work to get it.  Their “solution” to this so-called “problem” is to take the 1-percent’s wealth and “redistribute it” (sound familiar?) to…them, of course.

Happily, though, some cities, such as Oakland, decided they’d had enough of the Occufools, and most of the encampments had been dismantled by December.

Aw, come on! Is that all you got?! >

Denizens, I’m not sure if it’s zapped energy because of the holidays, or burnout, or what, but I’m not feelin’ it as regards to writing a Year In Review post this year.

Nevertheless, I will attempt to crank one out this evening.  Aided, of course, by copious quantities of carbonated adult beverage. 

Watch this space.

Denizens, our final Perfect Football Weekend™ for the season begins with an advisory.

As you’ve probably heard or seen, by now, ARRRRRRRR GEEEEEE THREEEEEE!!1!ONE!1ELEVENTEENTYBILLION!1!!  was given the Heisman Trophy as an early Christmas present for (hack, spit) Baylor  Half-Assed-Excuse-For-A-University, thus rendering that particular award as being on a par with the Nobel Peace Prize.  (In other words, utterly worthless.)

That’s right, given.  Because he sure as motherfucking Hell™ didn’t win  it.

And of course, all of the Limp-Dick Media™-types are creaming their panties over how ARRRRRRRRR GEEEEEEE THREEEEEE!!!!!!!  went to hell-and-back, overcame ADVERSITY, BAH GAWD!!!!!  (a little Jim Ross lingo, there), and beat UWarshington last night in the BCS Ultimate Championship EVAH BECAUSE ARR GEE THREE’S THERE!!!!!! Alamo Bowl.

Okay?  Okay.

Aw, come on! Is that all you got?! >

Ouch.  That’s gonna leave a mark.

Ron Paul’s campaign is denying an accusation from Michele Bachmann that her former Iowa campaign manager, state Sen. Kent Sorenson, was paid to defect.

Hours after appearing with Bachmann at an event, Sorenson endorsed the Texas congressman at a Des Moines rally saying Paul is the most conservative of the top-tier candidates.

Bachmann says Sorenson “was offered a large sum of money” and that he previously told her that ‘everyone sells out in Iowa, why shouldn’t I.’”

The torpedoing of Malicious Malkin’s honeygirl candidate aside, this speaks to two things:

1) How bad’s Michelle “Not an Elvis Expert” Bachmann’s campaign gotta be if even her Iowa campaign manager thinks it sucks?

2) More to the point, how good a judge of character can Bachman even be  if her campaign staff is picking The GOP’s Crazy Uncle In The Basement™ as a place to where they should jump?  I mean, Perry’s camp has openings, doesn’t it?  That’s the best Sorensen can come up with?

Anyway, s’long, Michelle, thanks for playing.

And like Elvis – whom you hardly knew – your campaign has left the building.

I do not normally post my sermons on-line. They are written for a specific congregation, and I like to keep them in that context, but today I am making an exception. Below is a version of the sermon I preached this morning.

Aw, come on! Is that all you got?! >

The Birth of Jesus Christ

1 In those days a decree went out from Caesar Augustus that all the world should be registered. 2 This was the first registration when Quirinius was governor of Syria. 3 And all went to be registered, each to his own town. 4 And Joseph also went up from Galilee, from the town of Nazareth, to Judea, to the city of David, which is called Bethlehem, because he was of the house and lineage of David, 5 to be registered with Mary, his betrothed, who was with child. 6 And while they were there, the time came for her to give birth. 7 And she gave birth to her firstborn son and wrapped him in swaddling cloths and laid him in a manger, because there was no place for them in the inn.

The Shepherds and the Angels

8 And in the same region there were shepherds out in the field, keeping watch over their flock by night. 9 And an angel of the Lord appeared to them, and the glory of the Lord shone around them, and they were filled with great fear. 10 And the angel said to them, “Fear not, for behold, I bring you good news of great joy that will be for all the people. 11 For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Savior, who is Christ the Lord. 12 And this will be a sign for you: you will find a baby wrapped in swaddling cloths and lying in a manger.” 13 And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God and saying,

14 “Glory to God in the highest,
and on earth peace among those with whom he is pleased!”

15 When the angels went away from them into heaven, the shepherds said to one another, “Let us go over to Bethlehem and see this thing that has happened, which the Lord has made known to us.” 16 And they went with haste and found Mary and Joseph, and the baby lying in a manger. 17 And when they saw it, they made known the saying that had been told them concerning this child. 18 And all who heard it wondered at what the shepherds told them. 19 But Mary treasured up all these things, pondering them in her heart. 20 And the shepherds returned, glorifying and praising God for all they had heard and seen, as it had been told them.

21 And at the end of eight days, when he was circumcised, he was called Jesus, the name given by the angel before he was conceived in the womb.

Luke 2:1-21

May our Lord bless this reading of his word.

This day we begin our celebration of the birth of a baby. While it is indeed right and proper to celebrate this birthday with great joy, we must never forget why this birth was necessary. We must also remember that the plan which was fullfilled on Calvary was God’s plan before the creation of the Universe.

May the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, keep your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus. Amen

Take a look, Denizens:

Memo to the Blondie  staff (specifically, Dean Young & John Marshall):  Any carolers who give me that “we know where you live” line will find themselves with faces full of 12-gauge.

See, we have a little thing in Texas called “castle doctrine” (it’s also the law in other states, as well).  Means that we can respond to threats in our domicile with deadly force if we see fit.

And “we know where you live” most definitely qualifiesCapíce???

Just a reminder for you and your “carolers” who think threats like that are cute ‘n clever.

ThatIsAll™.

Denizens, we’ll start this Bowl Edition™ of the Perfect Football Weekend™ with an example of what happens when the rule-makers and the zebras that enforce their wishes get a liiiiiiiiiitttttttllllleeeee too anal-retentive.

When he raised his fist on his way to the end zone, Boston (Mass.) Cathedral High quarterback Matt Owens thought he was celebrating the score that would hand his school a surprising Super Bowl title. Instead, he was doing the one thing that could keep them from it: Earning a penalty on a play where there was nothing but green turf between himself and the end zone.

Taunting.  They called him for fucking taunting.

As reported by the Boston Globe and Boston Herald among other sources, Owens was handed an unsportsmanlike conduct penalty for raising his fist during his run to the end zone in the fourth quarter, a call which negated the touchdown and moved the ball back to the spot of the foul at the Blue Hills (Mass.) High 24-yard line.

[...]

The called back touchdown cost Cathedral the lead — had Owens reached the end zone without incident, Cathedral would have gained an 18-16 lead with roughly six minutes remaining in the game. A play later, the quarterback essentially cost his team the game, throwing an interception to Blue Hills cornerback Keith Gomes that paved the way for Blue Hills to run out the rest of the clock and seal a 16-12 victory.

All because a fuckheaded zebra – and a bunch of “aw, give’m a trophy just for showing up” helicopter parents thought a kid on another team that had also worked hard to get where they were was taunting their pwecous widdle babeezzzz.

Syphillitic sinkholes full o’ shit.

On to the football.  It’s the Poinsettia Bowl in San Diego tonight, so that must mean it’s TCU.  The 18th-ranked Froggies are a 10-point favorite over Louisiana Tech…

VENOMOUS:  Vegas, are you sure  you have that right?

VEGAS:  Problem?

VENOMOUS:  You mean besides a team that would’ve beaten Baylor if it had a dependable kicker, would’ve torched SMUT with an impartial officiating crew, and did  beat a top-10 team on their Smurf Turf field only being a 10-point favorite over a team that couldn’t beat Hawai’i?  Nah, not really.

VEGAS:  (grunt)

Bet the house on TCU.  This isn’t even  going to be close.

Saturday night, the Dallas Cowgirlz get their first second shot at wrapping up the NFC Least when they host Mikey “Woof!” Vick and the rest of the Philthydelphia Beagles.

Wouldn’t really even bother me too much if the ‘Girlz lost this…as long as DeSeanna Jackoff finally took a beating.  But this is the same buncha cowards that wouldn’t put a steel-toed boot to Bwandi Jackoff’s crotch the other night, so look for another embarrassment.

We’re back Sunday or so for the recap.  Assuming, that is, that I’m not sawing logs from too much Christmas ham the night before…

Hmf.  I guess Tampa really is  that bad.

Dallas 31, at Tampa Bay 15

Didn’t really help that the Bucs sorta shot themselves in the foot a couple times.  But Romo did what Romo is basically supposed to do, which is slice ‘n dice a bad team to shreds.

Let’s hope he can do it next week.

Overall:  54-16.

Time permitting, we’ll start chronicling the bowl games tomorrow night, when I proclaim a Guaranteed Win Night™ for the Froggies.

Four women in history.

The first becomes pregnant through an act of prostitution.
The second is a prostitute.
The third is an enemy alien.
The fourth becomes pregnant through an act of adultery.

What might these women have in common?

What significance might this have in our lives?
