No Words

Howard U class of 2018

What the fuck to say other than a gutteral scream while clutching the nearest furry dog/cat/rabbit while searching for the nearest bong or bottle of vodka or Jane Austen novel?

So many things to say or think. Hard to prioritize the outrage. Where to start?  The ongoing open season on black and brown people, the hypocrisy of law enforcement who chuckle at a bunch of white wing-nuts making up for their small penises with big guns at the the Starbucks but have their sniper guns pointed at the heads of protesters with their hands in the air, the horrifying militarization of Barney Fifes of rural ‘Merikah with surplus weapons-grade body armor/machine guns/tanks, or the beatings and arrests of citizens just trying to get home or reporters trying to document the siege of the civilians.

Pay attention to what is happening in Ferguson, Missouri. The media has been banned, there is a no fly zone over the city. The police killed an unarmed black teenager and the protesters are surrounded by military grade police force with armored vehicles, assault weapons and tear gas.

tear gasTwo members of the local government have been arrested for joining the protesters. The press has been arrested and assaulted. Your civil rights are being tossed to the wind by this police force.

Brought to you by the Patriot Act and post-9/11 hysteria.

Something truly terrifying is happening right here in the land of the free and the home of the brave where ostensibly race is no longer an issue because we have a black President.

Suffer the Little Children

I’m waiting for the NRA to get in there and tell these people they have the right to arm themselves against aggressive government action.

Oh. Wait.

Hotties of the World Cup, Lego(R) Edition

Okay, these players are not really hotties for today’s post, but The Guardian has produced a series of videos using Lego men to animate the highlights of World Cup football matches.  Below, they show some (not all) of the goals made by Germany in their 7-1 drubbing of Brazil on Tuesday.  If only there were a word in German for taking joy in the suffering of another.

The meaningless third place game is Saturday between Brazil and the Dutch, and Sunday is the Mengele Bowl as Germany and Argentina face off.  Only two more games of soccer hotties!



Hotties of the World Cup, Double Your Pleasure Weekend Edition

Saturday’s first two games have been some great playing:  Iran playing some great soccer and scaring the shit out of Argentina until Messi saved the day, and Ghana holding Germany to a draw. Because of the Ghana-Germany result, if the U.S. wins Sunday afternoon’s game against Portugal (and its hottie star Ronaldo) then the U.S. is guaranteed to get to the Round of 16.  I’m putting my money on the U.S. after seeing Clint Dempsey break his nose in the Ghana game and come back in and play the rest of the game once they stopped the bleeding. He’s playing tomorrow with a broken nose.

We're tough.We're purty.

 

Hotties of the World Cup, Day 7

It’s been a great week so far of soccer/football. Today’s game to watch is Spain v. Chile at noon SWDHQ time. Today’s hottie is the Swedish-born Chilean player Miiko Albornoz.  His father is Chilean, his mother Finnish, he’s still working on learning Spanish.  He plays professionally for Malmo FF in Sweden.

I like Swedish meatballs.

 

Hotties of the World Cup, Day 6

Three matches are on for today, Mexico v. Brazil at noon (Stinque World Domination Headquarters Time) will be the one to watch.  Vincent Kompany, today’s hottie, will lead Belgium against Algeria in the first match of the day.  Algeria has never scored a goal in a World Cup game, so Belgium is heavily favored to win today’s game and the group.

There were some nice shirtless pics, but I didn't want to be completely unproductive at work.

 

Hotties of the World Cup, Day 5

The match up of most interest to the football fans is this morning’s game of Germany v. Portugal, the one of most interest here in ‘Merikah is US v. Ghana at 3 pm.  Ghana has beaten the U.S. the last two times the teams met, but today’s hottie Graham Zusi will try to keep that from happening a third time.

God Bless America

And here’s the Monday mitzvah for Dodger and Bloggie — an action shot of Alex Morgan from the U.S. women’s national team.

You're welcome

Hotties of the World Cup, Day 4

Another big day of games on tap, including France v. Honduras.  Hugo Lloris, the goalkeeper for Les Bleus, will be key to a victory for France.

Bonjour!
