Obama - Grow Some Balls

President Obama finally gets around to giving his policy speech on jobs and what happens?  Speaker Boehner informs him that it's not really a good date and suggests the next day instead (which happens to be the opening day of the NFL).  It seems that the Republicans are having a debate on the same day.  Wow -- that's a good reason to put a side a major presidential speech.

The King has a better idea.  The President should call up Speaker Boehner and tell him what day he wants to speak.  If he balks, tell him to go fuck himself and then proceed to plan B. The president should give his speech from the steps of the Lincoln Memorial.  Imagine a million people, mostly unemployed, cheering his every word.  Unlike the usual speech before congress where Democrats applaud while the Republicans sit on their hands, people will be able to go nuts and show their support.

Republicans caused this economic crisis and now want to act like it was all caused by the poor and elderly.  President Obama needs to fine some fire.  Grow a set of balls.  Take the fight to the American public and stop trying to kiss the ass of Republicans.  Republican's don't care about the economy because they are all rich and can weather any financial storm.   Real people want jobs.

Golf In Utopia

If you really want to read a good book about the psychology of golf, don't bother reading "Seven Days in Utopia: Golf's Sacred Journey."     Early in the book the author, David L. Cook, does a pretty good job of describing his philosophy SFT (see it, feel it, and trust it), but he turns super religious for the last third of the book. 

The book tells a story about a down on his luck professional golfer who lands in a small town named Utopia after one of his worst golf failures.  He discovers an elderly owner of a run down golf course who knows more about golf and life than any dozen psychologist.  On the seventh day, he convinces the professional golfer that his real problem is he hasn't accepted Jesus Christ as his savior and guiding light.

It is pure hokey melodrama the rest of the way.  You don't even learn the ending of the story.  Instead you're directed to the author's web page where he tries to convince you to buy bundles of his book to distribute at your next golf outing.

Believe it or not, this book will soon be on the silver screen.  I usually find that the movie is not as good as the book.  This time that will be hard to accomplish.  When I am King, if a golfer wants to learn more about golf psychology, I'll advise him to read Dr. Bob Rotella's book "Golf Is Not A Game Of Perfect."  His philosophy doesn't require you to be a Christian to play better golf.

Golf and God

I was watching the golf tournament today and I was pleased to see this rookie win for the first time.  He really hit the ball well and kept his composure down the stretch.  After he finished he was greeted by one of the announcers seeking his comments on his great break through win.  First thing out of the golfer's mouth," I have to give all credit to Jesus Christ my savior who was with me every step of the way.  His presence made it possible for me to stay calm down the stretch."

What a crock of shit.  Do you really think God has nothing better to do than make sure his only son calms you down the stretch. Does God hate the other golfers? Does God have nothing better to do?  I mean, Japan is on the verge becoming a toxic nuclear waste dump and God is worried about a golf tournament???  Million of people are unemployed because rich bastards need to have God kick them in the ass, but noooooooooo, he's busy watching golf. 

Personally, I really don't care what a person's religious beliefs are, as long as he keeps them to himself.  It's when he tries  to push his beliefs on everyone else that I take exception.  When I am King, I'll fine your ass for such TV utterances.  All you're doing is promoting your religion on national TV -- do it in church.  You'll find lots of people who wan to hear your thoughts.  But I won't be there, I'll be playing golf.

The King Needs Some Help

It has come to my attention that some people have not been able to make comments on my blog.  Well, that really sucks -- I really love those comments.  I am thinking something must be wrong with my settings, although I swear I haven't touch anything.  If you have any idea what might be causing this problem, send me your suggestion for a possible fix at  I know there are some really smart people out there who are eager to help their future king.  So give me a helping hand -- I want to get those comments again.

De'ja Vu

Yogi Berra coined the phrase, it looks like de'ja vu all over again.  While Yogi was clearly no English teacher, he was a very astute observer.  We could use some of Yogi's skills to look into the current government flap over the economy.

Probably the closest thing to the current situation would be the Great Depression.  Just like today, there were government officials who thought it was a good idea to have the government go into default.  Just like then, these government officials were either rich or bought and paid for by the rich.

For example, look at the role of President Hoover's Secretary of Treasury, Andrew Mellon.  Mellon thought it would be a good thing if the economy would go right to the bottom.  If the economy crashed, Mellon predicted "people will work harder, live a more moral life.  Values will be adjusted and enterprising people will pick up the wrecks from less competent people. There were plenty of tycoons who had enough income from rents and bonds to weather a prolonged depression themselves, but found consolation in the hope that it would destroy the labor unions and bring back old times when a dollar a day was a white man's pay".  Sound familiar?  Rick people have always  advocated for their own selfish interest.  Whether it's Mellon in the 30's or the Kock brothers today -- they want to fuck over the poor and middle class.  We've beat them before, and we will beat them again.

By the way, I have to thank my good buddy, Zyggy, for his research help.  For you source freaks, check out page 945 of The Oxford History of the American People by Samuel Eliot Morison.  I know you can probably find it somewhere on the Internet,  but Zyggy was a great history teacher and he never threw out those old text books.  Which puts him way ahead of all the politicians who never read them.

When I am King, I'll make Zyggy in charge of history lessons for all members of Congress.  If they don't pass his class, they can't serve until they do.  Maybe then we can cut down on all the de'ja vu all over again.

Who Won??

It appears that the debt ceiling crisis is over.  The Republican and Democrat leaders have come up with a compromise solution.  Personally I think the whole situation was a Tea Party hostage game.  The debt ceiling has been raise more that 70 times in the last 90 years -- why the big stink this time?  Because the Tea Party has enough members in Congress to be real obstructionist.  Even though the Republicans are in the majority in the House, the Tea Party members can keep any bill from passing by simply saying NO.  Sort of a filibuster for the House.  That's why there's no new revenues in the final solution, just cuts from the elderly, poor and middle class.

I am a little pissed at President Obama.  He should have let the Bush Tax Cut expire when he had a chance.  It overwhelming benefits rich people and is directly responsible for 3.1 trillion dollars of the national debt.  Hopefully Obama will stop trying to be a moderate conservative and get back to his moderate liberal roots.  Trying to balance the budget without increasing revenues is pure folly.

As long as the Congress produces a budget that contains more spending that revenues, our country will have to borrow money.  When I am King, I'll declare the debt ceiling process unconstitutional.  Maybe then we can get on to real problems, like JOBS, JOBS, AND JOBS.
