(New) Hard Times

Uhhmnnn, in the midnite wind
I heard an A.M. voice – say,
Watch out, son, when making
Your choices – You can work
For greed or work just for fun
Just make sure you’re not being
Taken in by a hollow system ---
Uhhmmmnnn, the wisdom is free
Unless you don’t listen to me
And then you’ll pay either way
By being a slave to the wind
You’ll never catch or know -no
Matter how many bucs you grab
You won’t get to know happy from
Anything but what’s out of a bag---
So, just go on your own and heed
What I say but remember everyday
Is a gift unto you and it’s not what
You do but how you do it and, really,
Ain’t nothing more to it than that ---
Watch your desires and don’t get fat
Like them cats on Wallstreet & in D.C.
Yeah, listen to me, I been around for
A long, long years and seen it all – I
Even seen Rome fall and lions roar
When they broke down the doors and
Ate all the mistakes –so called greats
And what was known as the Senate
With orators and those senators just
Begging for mercy instead of steaks ---
So when you come around and figure
Me out I’ll be in Alabama cleaning up
The south from the leftover sinners who
Whipped the horse’s eyes and made them
All scream and cry for having an opinion.

Ahhh, it’s hard times … It’s hard times
… ahhh, it’s hard times … It’s hard times
Ahhh, it’s hard times … It’s hard times

Ahhh, it’s hard times … It’s hard times
… ahhh, it’s hard times … It’s hard times

Ahhh, it’s hard times … It’s hard times.

Suzanne Marques, an LA Gal Reporter for Good Day LA ...

In fact, if "such a SO TOTALLY SMOKING RED HOT Women of the New Everyday Media" were a holiday pie, I'd put whip cream on her and eat her after dinner in front of friends and family in a grand hall decked with boughs of holly (la la la la la - la la la la) ...

Tina Fey: Sarah Palin impression wasn't 'mean' +++ Sarah Palin's Body Politic

Tina Fey is standing by her Sarah Palin impressions and claims they weren't mean-spirited. In an interview with Barbara Walters, Tina defends her portrayal of the sassy Alaska governor who either captivated your heart or frightened the living piss out of of you.

Hollyscoop reports:
Voted one of Barbara Walters "10 Most Fascinating People of 2008," Tina told Babs: "I never did feel that we were mean to her. We stuck to a lot of things that she herself had said, and I think there is a very strange double standard because it's a woman portraying another woman. The jokes we used to do about George W. Bush were that he was an idiot. The jokes were aggressive. No one would ever stop and say, 'Oh, that seems kind of mean.' "

"A very strange double standard because it's a woman." Oh, boy, here we go. It's 2008, Tina, not the 1970s. Men and women are completely equal now. In fact, once my secretary brings her sweet tush in here with my coffee, I'll bring you up to speed.

OK, whatever your politics - put them down like Gov Sarah Palin downed this glass of Champagne (w/ a shot of vodka in it = just like I like it...sigh...)

Uhhmnnn... Primal Knowledge 101

Sarah Palin is Smoking RED HOT = A+++++++

Fuck You Bill Belichick = You Cock Sucking Cheating Chowder-Head ...

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. -- Pittsburgh's NFL-best defense stopped Matt Cassel's two-game offensive surge and pushed New England closer to strange territory: a sideline seat for the playoffs.
The Steelers held the Patriots to 267 yards, got two touchdown passes from Ben Roethlisberger and four field goals from Jeff Reed and beat the Patriots 33-10 on a cold, rainy Sunday.

In the second half, the Steelers outscored the Patriots 23-0 and gave up just 81 yards.

Cassel lost two fumbles and two interceptions in the second half and was sacked five times after throwing for at least 400 yards in his past two contests. He was 19-for-39 for 169 yards and no touchdowns against Pittsburgh, which has held all 12 opponents under 300 yards.

New England Patriots quarterback Matt Cassel walks off the field after failing to convert a third down in the first half of their NFL football game against the Pittsburgh Steelers in Foxborough, Massachusetts November 30, 2008.

Pittsburgh (9-3) stayed a game ahead of second-place Baltimore in the AFC North.
New England (7-5) dropped into a second-place tie in the AFC East with Miami and fell a game behind the Ravens and Indianapolis Colts in the wild-card race.

Roethlisberger went 17-for-33 for 179 yards and one interception as the Steelers converted on 8-of-16 third downs and put up their third-highest scoring game of the season despite coming in ranked only 26th in yards gained.

The Steelers stopped an offense that had gained 511 and 530 yards in its previous two games. They held the Patriots to just one conversion on 13 third-down plays and 81 yards in the second half.

The Patriots put themselves in that spot as Randy Moss dropped two passes while wide open, one of which would have gone for a touchdown in the final minute of the first half. Two plays later, Stephen Gostkowski missed a 27-yard field goal .

With more than five minutes left, most of the drenched fans had headed to the warmth of their cars. Some who remained waved yellow-and-black Terrible Towels.

Troy Polamalu's interception with 9:18 left led to Reed's 40-yard field goal. Then Lawrence Timmons returned another interception 89 yards, setting up Gary Russell's 1-yard touchdown run.
