clownarchy, breaking news

I was watching the news after "Celebrity Fish gutting" was over and was informed that news was BREAKING! Wow, busted I guess from being off kilter for so long. I've heard that sometimes-whole stories break so I wasn't surprised.
After a recruitment commercial for the Navy showing swabbys on the other side of the planet (Out sourcing?) the news reader blathered on for the whole segment and most of the next about Basket ball politics,( who's in who's out, who cares,) in the last few seconds before the news part was over they mentioned 1500 dead Americans in Iraq (No mention of Iraqi dead) and a peeping Tom perping NE Portland. WOW!
Doe's the outcome of a basketball match mean anything to anyone?
media distortion is from hell

Howdy fellow literates,

Will it keep G.W.Criminal from clear-cutting everything but the unborn crack babies?
Will effective coaching change the outcome of the oil wars?
Let me tell ya friends, thousands of people really give a damn about sports.
I've been stuck in traffic (on my bike) at the rose quarter during a sporting event after leaving a tiny anti-war protest downtown.
I thought Wow this must be very important for so many people to show up while ignoring Bush and his troop killing scams, so I had to attend.
I used my handy dandy Pepto Dizmal press pass and got in to a game, I would have bought a ticket but they cost at least five times as much as my bike and I don't blow that kind of cash for anything you cant smoke.
So I took a seat and waited for a life-changing event. Right away I could see why drinks cost 5 bucks, the players could only afford ill-fitting shorts and sneakers, I felt kind of bad to be sitting there in cowboy boots and the miracle of pants that fit. Their clothes must have came from the same dumpster because they all looked the same too.
The game got started and I saw with my own eyes what all the hubbub was about, A guy threw something and then everybody ran WHAT??? Hahahaha Hahahaha! I've gone to jail for doing that and I never got a dime for it.
I do understand people wanting to see a spectacle and be distracted from the reality of their children getting blown up for oil but Dang man! It should be a real spectacle.
Give them all whisky and baseball bats or make the game both teams (naked) vs. one of the players fighting pit bull dogs (hehe I crack me up. you could maybe catch a souvenir arm while sitting in the stands, bet the player wouldn't be able to autograph it.)
If it's an Olympic Basketball they all get Tridents and fishnets.
People have messed up priorities in this fine country (I know I do) and I hope everyone someday wakes up and realizes exactly whats going on before it's too late.

I feel sorry for illiterates such as yourself who ridicule athetes and athletics while vomiting up simpleminded politics on a local messageboard. Boo hiss on your nerd self. Believe it or not, you can enjoy a GAME and care about what goes on in the world AND care about spelling and grammar while you're at it!

Remember, when you are mean to people who can't spell...it sets off a chain reaction that ends with baskets of puppys being flung into volcanos on the other side of the planet so be cool.
I just dont like the traffic and being left with a brave few to fight the good fight in the streets.
