TRUE Masters of Evil... Part II .. " United States of Embarrassment" ..

Editor's Note:  To all my Republican readers. I challenge you to read this whole blog. I love this country, but your party's personal agenda for power, control, and money had divided our Nation. It hurts

Evert day when I was a kid in school we all faced the flag and recited the Pledge of Allegiance and in it we said :
                    "I pledge Allegiance to the flag
                     of the United States of America
                     and to the Republic for which it stands,
                     one nation under God, indivisible,
                     with Liberty and Justice for all."

Indivisible.. so much for that. Unfortunately, we are now a nation divided now between the struggle for power between the true Masters of Evil
the majority Republican Congress
 and our President. By now you all now the issue but let's briefly re-cap:
  • Republican led congress shut-down 800,000 federal jobs and refused to raise the debt-ceiling as they want the the elimination - or at least the delay -- of Obamacare. Which would  hinder government efforts to provide health insurance to 15% of the U.S. population that doesn't have coverage. 
Softball Insider Analysis : This is flat out bully extortion. So divisive, hurting everyone and helping no one. Is this America? Why are they trying to fold our League?
  • To our President's credit he has not backed down to these weak bully tactics by saying "I'm not going to negotiate with you until you reopen the government, but go to your members, find out what you need to do to get that part done and let's try to make some progress.'" 
Softball Insider Analysis :  I mean c'mon, its obvious this is a personal attack against Barrack. Why? Is it because he is black? Is it because he is trying to help? Is Social change/betterment so wrong? Republicans hatred for him is costing 800,000 jobs and looming future economic turmoil. Pathetic. The face of America has changed accept it. Deal with it. All of this reminds me of the classic Eminem song "White America"

Yeah I put my favorite rapper in this political blog. Why? To re-enforce that the Face of America has changed. We are Republic. Share the ball. Your embarrassing the Nation. STOP
  • The shutdown could cost the still-struggling U.S. economy about $1 billion a week in pay lost by furloughed federal workers. And that's only the tip of the iceberg.  The total economic impact is likely to be at least 10 times greater than the simple calculation of lost wages of federal workers, said Brian Kessler, economist with Moody's Analytics. His firm estimates that a three- to four-week shutdown would cost the economy about $55 billion. 
Softball Insider Analysis :   That's ridiculous. We just barely crawled out of a recession, barely, and now this? Live Together. Die Alone
  • To make matters more hypocritical and divisive, pay checks have been coming to the 533 current members of Congress while most of the federal workforce goes without pay. 
Softball Insider Analysis :  This insults every American. Completely Disgraceful. 
These assholes simply do not fucking care about America. They are acting like spoiled children and are still getting paid. They live in a static bubble. Face some live pitching buddy.
  • Yesterday, the Republicans caved in, opened talks, "After initially demanding changes to or the elimination of Obama's signature health care reform plan, Republicans have more recently focused on extending the debt ceiling for up to six weeks while negotiating on spending and other issues during a continued government shutdown.
Softball Insider Analysis :  ... duhhhh. Play ball bitch. What took you so long.
  • But as is their way, Republicans spun the story  "This is a republic, not a dictatorship, negotiations are a requirement, not an option."All we’re asking for is to sit down and have a conversation,"John Boehner speaker of the house of representatives, He went on further to say "There’s no reason to make it more difficult to bring people to the table. There’s no boundaries here. There’s nothing on the table, there’s nothing off the table. I’m trying to do everything I can to bring people together and have a conversation. It's up to the President now"... .
Softball Insider Analysis : Spin. Spin Spin. Double Talk and lies
  • Before I go let me hit you with one more Eminem quote from the song White America
    "How many people are proud to be
    Citizens of this beautiful country of ours?
    The stripes and the stars for the rights of men
    Who have died for the protect?
    The women and men who have broke their necks
    For the freedom of speech The United States Government has sworn to uphold, Or so we're told"

    C'mon Masters of Evil somewhere there is still good inside of you. Help the Nation. You are supposed to.... "Or so we're told"

Masters of Evil .. Part I .. Back to the Drawing Board and "Pity the Warrior who has no foes to slay"

The Masters of Evil is a name for a number of super-villains that fight super heroes in the comics.
The members change throughout the years, but their goal of domination remains.

In softball either die a Hero and live long enough to become a Villain, and if you win year after year after year after year , True Domination, you eventually become a Master Super Villain as everyone loves to hate you as they want what you have.Softball has it's own version of Master of Evil,
The 2013 Big Apple Champions
Choice Parts

Writer's Note : Why are all the North A96 players standing on the left in the picture and far back in video's the  group huddle... except Lou 22... hmmmm

Truth is they are not evil. Just really good at softball. 5 championships in 6 years, and while I love to hate them I also have a lot of love, respect, and admiration for many of their players. Well done and deserved as winning a championship in the Big Apple league kinda counts like winning two championships somewhere else.

Two comments/quotes strike me as I think about Choice Parts and the League
  • Comment #1 "Hey I thought all the illegal pitching was supposed to stop JB from winning the chip. I guess its back to the drawing board! Congrats Parts!!"  Ang HK11 - That comment was probably from one the insiders #1 fans Angelo Gonzalez.
Angelo on the Left

He is absolutely 100% right. Many teams loaded up on pitching as they "Lived By the Sling and Died by the Sling", After a setback in 2012 the Parts loaded up on offense. The strategy worked to perfection. Back to the drawing board for everyone else.
  • Star Trek nerd quote from "The Fall of Kang" was an epic poem written by the Klingon poet G'trok. "So honor the valiant who die 'neath your sword...but pity the warrior who slays all his foes."
This is about me I guess. I have won a lot of leagues, but never the Big Apple. I have lost five semi-finals games threes. That's a lot of whiny sentimental bullshit I know. But it is also the Truth. I don't want to become softball's Gene Mauch or Dusty Baker. Good baseball men you never won the big one. Winning this league is my last great challenge.Their is one Foe yet to slay, but not today

Today belongs to my Frenemies - Choice Parts Well done. Holler!!!!!! - True Masters of Softball
