Therefore you don't have a excuse not to see my Tigers play My excitement level for this game reach a pretty high point yesterday before Lunch and hasn't come down. In Louisiana and Arkansas there is but one topic and it is this game. A lot is riding on this game this afternoon for both teams.

Thanks St Louis - Also Kookdum is about to have to eat their words on a certain Quarterback

My paleoconservative conservative friend congrats us on LSU mighty victory. Thanks!!! We have no where to go but up now. Like I said I am dreaming of roses now. In fact I am planning to sign up at this kookdum sports site and talk about it.

In particular I am going to this entry and make them eat their words on our great quarterback.
Especially this entry:
Steve Beuerlein was that stupid CBS announcer. He definitely made himself look silly. Look at the fawning over DuhMarcus' arm strength this way: what they are not saying, ad nauseum, is that he's "heady," "smart," or a "field general." By dousing Russell with the same two or three compliments every time hs name is mentioned, they make it even more apparent that no one believes he is a complete QB. Russell is just a big, strong guy who is otherwise an average QB. LSU is loaded with offensive talent, which combines to make DuhMarcus look good. His fellators are quick to cite his record as a starter, which is something like 15-3 now. That record, though, belongs to the team. It's not as though Russell carries the team, like they'd be rather average without him. They don't win by blowing anyone out; defense is LSU's strength. DuhMarcus Russell would not be 15-3 if he were the starting QB at Mississippi State, Ole Miss, Kentucky, or South Carolina. He wouldn't make Arkansas a better team. He would not make 'Bama an SEC Champ contender (and forget Vandy - he'd never make the grades!). Notice the CBS commentators refrained from harsh criticism of the way Russell mis-managed the clock on LSU's last drive. He wasted valuable seconds by taking a sack that was long in the making, instead of throwing the ball away. Everyone knows he could "flick his wrist" and dump the ball beyond the sidelines, right? So, the Tigers wind up on the 5 yard line as time expires...

Translation- We want the white quarterback in. Now I love Flynn but Jamarcus is the bomb. Stay tuned to that entry because I intend tos blow away their racist cobwebs in their brain as to one of the smartest quarterbacks in the conference and even the nation.

By the way this is the site I shall be doing a expose on this week. Who knows maybe tonight. I think blogmeister you will enjoy it. It will be fair and even handed. What is frustrating about this site is that actually they do hit on a few nuggets of truth. But then what good that is is blown away by their racism and their radical agenda. I was planning to do it Saturday but decided not to ruin the best day of the week by going into this kookdum.

Ona more politcal note, the blogmeister of the Council of Conservative Citizens has a post on the supposed Buchanite wing of the Republican party. I actually agree with him a tad on this. The Buchanite wing will never be comfortable on the GOP. Partly because its full of quacks that want to try to implement policy that has proven time after time to fail. But most importantly because so much of its base is kookdum. Even the blogmeister I notice doesn't buy into all the conspiracy koolaid that so many of its people post on the net.

Its time to be serious about Moslems

Quick post today because I am under a deadline here. The right(in a which I am member of) has some faults. This ranting against all moslems is one of them. What I see on the web is very distressing to me. Also it disturbs me because it is so damn uneducated. That annoys me in this day where information is so available. I have no pie in the sky view of the Islamic world. I know currently there are major problems. Also as a Catholic, I come from a faith that has dealt with Islam since the beginning. Trust me, when as a Catholic you value the desert fathers, and the works of Augustine it is sad to see that ancient land of our Christianity gone.

The needs to be dialouge. It appears we want moslems to assimilate but wqe shoot down any true discussion in the blogsphere. Too many sterotypes.

If there is one person to put on your blog list or favorite links its this conservative Republican lady. Please visit Smart and Final Isis. First read her post Isis’ Guide to Sensible Islam Posting. Good stuff. She is trying to start serious dialouge between moderate Muslims and the rest of the world. There has been far too little of that. Which is amazing in this world of the blogs and the internet. ANother example of how we retreat to our echo chambers. Anywho till tonight

The Touchdown live from Tiger Stadium(LSU/Ole Miss)

Ok Just one more LSU post lol. This is too good. The LSU/Ole Miss game came down to the wire. The Tigers had to pull it together like never before to come from from behind. The Critical point was as the 4th Quarter was in its final seconds. It was 4th down and we were behind by 6 points. We were either going to win and keep our BCS Bowl hopes alive or lose a game that would be a heartbreaking memory for the rest of our lives.(note Ole Miss blocked the extra point having us go to overtime where we run but this was the most dramactic moment)

Friends have told me that the Crowd noise rivaled the famous LSU/AUBURN Earthquake game at this point. Now you can be the judge through the magic of you tube. I of course like hundreds of thousands was listening on the radio about to have an heart attack.
Link-
God I love Tiger Stadium. If that doesn't send chills down your spine you need to go check in at the morgue.

Update here is a closer live view of the touchdown from another fan

Update II- Thank God I am finding all these Clips. This was the second most exciting and critical play of the game. This shows the stud that LSU's Quarterback is. Watch Jamarcus Russell spin twice and throw it 53 yards while on the run- Priceless

Update III- Another Great View from the stands fromm our earlier Touchdown. Great shot of Student section, Band and T -I-G-E-R-S- TIGERS Cheer.

The Pondering American Is Smelling Roses

One final LSU post. Yes I am smelling roses. That is ROSE BOWL roses for LSU. True, we have to have USC beat those Irish folks at Notre Dame and Rutgers to win this week but it could happen. You see LSU has got to catch a break. You see my mind goes back to the third game of the year. If it had not been for 4 and half tiny yards we would be in contention for the national Championship at this moment. Surely God is going to smile on his Tigers and allow this to happen. I think it would be a great game and most likely it would be USC we would playing against. The drama of that game would be a huge draw.

However if we do take care of business this Friday against the swine in Little Rock I am pretty sure the Orange Bowl would take us. -Note to LSU Fans going to the game Friday be sure to sneak in the oranges to throw them on the field if we win. Those Orange Bowl people like that stuff plus its gets on TV.

Sen Landrieu I have a Deal for You to Save Your Senate Seat

This morning I was high as a kite. Nothing like a close LSU/Ole Miss(and LSU victory) to get your Sunday morning started off right. Then I read the sunday paper.
Seems like the the Democrats have big plans that effect poor ole Louisiana in a big way.It seems that the Democrats are about to kick Louisiana when its down in a big way.

The Tax Cuts that are being targeted include Topping the list for repeal are:

_Tax breaks for refinery expansion and for geological studies to help oil exploration.

_A measure passed two years ago primarily to promote domestic manufacturing. It allows oil companies to take a tax credit if they chose to drill in this country instead of going abroad
.

Sen Landrieu you know the importance of the oil industry and know that these actions take the food out of our mouths. This goes directly against the aims of the Blanco administration in trying to get the Kuwait Govt to build a oil refinery in Louisiana.

Further we know if the Democrats will not allow the offshore revenue sharing bill to pass while they are in control. A move that will cause us to lose funding for the Coastal Erosion projects that are needed to literally save the ground beneath our feet.

I offer this proposal. Sen Landrieu you become a independent these next two years and agree to to work with the Republicans to elect their leadership in the Senate. The Senate will return to 50/50 with the VP as the tying vote.

In exchange you will get two things. That the GOP Senate pledges to pass the offshore revenue sharing bill. (2) That the Louisiana delegation agrees to a non agression pact for your election in 2007. A race that we all know you have serious problems with. A non agression pact means that there might be an agreement that Congressmen such as Baker, Alexander, or Boustany agree not to run against you in 07.

Do I think this deal is possible. Yes I do. On this issue in Louisiana Republicans and Democrats are on the same page. Jindal will benefit because he is heading up the effort in the House while such action would assure your re-election. How could Congressman Boustany(your likely opponent) refuse such a offer for legislation that would benefit his district in a most dramactic way. The national GOP leadership would go for this because they know that loosing the Chairmanship of the Senate Committees for the next two years will be a disaster. Especially as to the Judiciary for example.

Louisiana has one moment in time to get the resources it needs to save its future. Sen Landrieu are you ready to lead and take a risk? Who knows you might find being a independent something you wish to do beyond 2008. Further, we know the future leadership of a Democrat congress puts you in a tough situation as to some votes coming down the road. Votes that you know the typical Louisiana democrat is not in line with.
