“The USGA called it a par 70 but it wasn't. It was a par 72. When no one makes birdie at 18 for the last 2 rounds the hole is a 5 par, no matter what the card says. By far the worst of the majors. You could trick up any course and make it hard to score. Give me the Masters or The Open Championship, or even the PGA (it has the toughest field and has been travelling to some great courses). USGA fail.”
“Sorry, I live here , and Super Dawg isn't even in the top ten. Just off the top of my head: Genes and Judes, Booby's, Hot Dougs, Fat Johnnies, The Weiners Circle, Portillo's, Mckey's, Petes, Duk's, nd the Dawg House serve a better dog, The atmosphere at SuperDawg is great, but the hot dog is so-so.”
“I'm so glad that they solved all the other important issues facing their state so that they can get after all these exposed nipples that are ruining the moral fabric of our country. How are decent men supposed to concentrate on important biddness when they are spending their time looking for,or thinking about, womens nipples.”
“Coach K allows this to happen. He's got this angelic reputation, but he is really just another bully cut from the same cloth as his mentor Bobby Knight. Ask former players about being discouraged from majoring in programs that wouldn't allow them to focus fully on basketball. If they insisted, they get their scolarship pulled and are ousted from Duke. ESPN won't say anything because they are beholden to these goofs for programing. Duke basketball is no different from the rest of the cesspool that is college sport.”

“Coach K regularly stops chants. These kind of things are not reported on twitter. I have personally seen him stop ten or so chants that went over the line. (UVA's Donald Hand had one memorable one.) He stopped the game to intervene.
Nearly every single eyewitness swears they didn't hear this chant. This is a media fiction and you ought to do some independent research before you get outraged.”
“As some one who was diagnosed with, and treated successfully for, cancer I wish that people would stop using the words battle and fight in regards to the treatment. I didn't battle cancer, I was treated for cancer. I did not fight cancer, I saw a set of doctors for cancer. The use of these words implies that a person who dies from cancer didn't battle hard enough, they didn't fight. And please don't look to me for insparation. I didn't get sick to make you feel inspired. Actually you can KMA with your talk of insiration. It's about me, not you. So save the battle metaphor, and the talk of how inspiring I am, and ask if you can do anything for the cancer patient. I really don't care that you are inspired by me.”
“It seems that people don't understand the the money the govt. spends goes into the economy. The accepted number among economists is that every dollar spent by the govt. results in $1.13 in economic activity (the multiplier effect), every dollar of tax cuts results in $.97 in economic activity, or a net loss. I agree we need to cut the deficit, but the time for that is after recovery. In some perverse way I hope the Tea Party gets everything it wants and the economy tanks. Maybe then they will all crawl back under their rocks. Although I suspect that once a white man is back in as president they will suddenly disappear.”

“Only a small part of the money government takes in goes into the economy. Most of it is siphoned off to pay for overhead and is not productive.
Throwing $2 to get $1 back and having to make your grandkids pay back $3 is not intelligent nor does it make any economic sense except for a quick-term boost with a huge long-term fall.”

“Great! Now explain how inflation happens especially whan the government printing presses are running full time. What do people living on 1200 a month do, eat cat food?”
