I've watched Favre do this for years. The first time he did this (when he still could make a difference) I knew the Pack wasn't going to let him go, and he would be in camp when most of the grunting was over. Things haven't changed because the Queens still think he can make a difference. Apparently the Aints aren't so sure, which is where he really wants to go.
How would you like to be Tarvarius (sp) knowing half your team was texting Favre begging him to play? That's gotta be a confidence builder. The dummies in the dome aren't much better knowing they are the red headed stepchild here.
I can see it now, when he finally makes his mind up. Standing there, looking down, arms crossed, swaying back and forth when he kicks at the dirt saying, "all right, I'll come play on your team." Like I said. It really is some funny shit and this is going to be another great season. I love seeing all those blue seats in the dome. LOLOLOL

Sgt. James Crowley was first to respond to the home the renowned black scholar. Gates was charged with disorderly conduct after police said he yelled at Crowley, who is white, accusing him of racial bias. Gates had refused to calm down after Crowley demanded he show him identification to prove he lived in the home. The charge was dropped Tuesday, but Gates has demanded an apology, calling his arrest a case of racial profiling. An apology from an officer that teaches a class on racial diversity on his own dime.
During Great Leader's Thursday night primetime special, he was asked about Gates' (who is a close friend of O) arrest. Messiah responded with "he didn't have all the facts, but I think it's fair to say, No. 1, any of us would be pretty angry,No. 2, that the Cambridge police acted stupidly in arresting somebody when there was already proof that they were in their own home. And No. 3 -- what I think we know separate and apart from this incident -- is that there is a long history in this country of African-Americans and Latinos being stopped by law enforcement disproportionately, and that's just a fact."
What was "stupidly" was going beyond saying he didn't have all the facts, and that's just a fact. Crowly claims that he was just doing his job but that Gates continued to rant "that I was doing this because he was a black man in America, that I was a racist." Crowley said that while he was radioing in Gates' name to the dispatcher for record, "I couldn't hear myself say it. He was yelling that loud," Crowley said.
Patrolman Carlos Figueroa, the second officer on the scene, told The Associated Press that when Crowley asked Gates to present identification, the professor shouted, "No, I will not!" Figueroa said Gates called Crowley a racist and shouted, "This is what happens to black men in America!"
With Gates calling for an apology, the Cambridge area police unions voiced their support for Sgt. James Crowley and called for an apology from President Obama for his statement.
From FOXNews.com, at an impromptu appearance at the daily White House briefing, Obama said he spoke with Crowley over the phone, and said he wanted to share a beer with Crowley and Gates at the White House."Because this has been ratcheting up and I helped contribute to ratcheting it up, I want to make clear that in my choice of words I unfortunately gave an impression that I was maligning the Cambridge Police Department or Sgt. Crowley specifically and I could have calibrated those words differently." Gave the impression? Calling their acts stupidly is an impression???
So there you have it. Even in the face of overwhelming facts, Great Leaders' ENORMOUS EGO will not allow him to do the right thing and apologize.

It was announced that the strike force commander Capt. Chris Omodt had resigned, when actually Hennepin County Sheriff Rich Stanek recalled him. Stanek said he didn't want his office to have anything to do with the strike force.
The original strike force had been accused of mishandling seized money and cars, and when members got wind of the accusations they started shredding papers and tried to steal documents from their headquarters.
Once the interim strike force was assembled, public safety officials said there was a "lack of common vision"(wtf) what ever that means. Maybe it's just my thoughts, but isn't it up to their supervisors to lay out their 'common vision'?
All this while, (disclaimer) and I'm sure they're not the only ones, Somali gangs are on the rise in Minneapolis. In a ten month period, seven Somali men were killed. It's believed it was the work of Somali gangs. Police and Minneapolis leaders won't tell you but it is believed by Shukri Adan, a former Somali community organizer, that in 2007 there were between 400 and 500 young Somalis active in gangs like Somali Hot Boyz, the Somali Mafia and Madhibaan with Attitude.
So, what to do now? I'll tell you what. We rely on outside sources for what's going on here in Minnesota.
From KSTP.com, "a gang expert in California said economic and social factors are more likely to blame for the spike in gang activity than any spillover of violence from war-ravaged Somalia.
"When there's unemployment and poverty and lack of external support, there's gangs," said Jorja Leap, a social welfare professor at the University of California Los Angeles and former gang adviser to the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department."
I guess we're going to have to rely on some strike force from California to resolve the problem here, as officials here aren't committed to or don't believe we need our own strike force. It kinda reminds me of officials back in the 1980s saying that gangs weren't here and we won't have to worry about that. It must be a California thing.

This from HotAir.com - “It’s important that those who consume the products being made all around the world to the benefit of America — and it’s our own consumption activity that’s causing the emission of greenhouse gases, then quite frankly Americans need to pay for that,” Commerce Secretary Gary Locke told the American Chamber of Commerce in Shanghai.
You read right. WE are the cause of the pollution THEY emit.
Ed Morrissey believes that WE WILL PAY for our evils one of two ways. Either we will make madcap and traitor more expensive or we will put huge tariffs on imports.
I thought Great Leader apologized for all our evils to all the countries abroad, but I was mistaken. WE NEED TO PAY.
Now that I think about it, I may be a victim as well. You see, I'm in the midst of putting a new stormdoor on our house. The instructions are impossible to follow. (yes, I am reading the instructions. sorry guys) Stamped on the box, 'Made In China'. The mental strain and agony that I'm going through, could be detrimental to any one or anything around me....thus rendering me
innocent of all my actions. Who's to fault if I go berzerk with an ax on the side of our house? Let's take a look.
I'm not sure who made the door that was originally installed on the house, so I can't go after them. Plus I sent the door off with the garbage. You know, come to think of it, recycling or destroying/dumping the old door is going to cause emissions so I need to pay for that.
Now, my Wife drove me to Mennard's to buy the door. That trip and back caused emissions I NEED TO PAY FOR. Mennard's had to have personnel at the ready to help me find and purchase the door. That caused emissions for those people to get to work and who do you think should PAY FOR THAT? I think you know who. How does Mennard's light the place? That didn't grow on a tree so it caused emissions.
The door and all it's parts were made in China so if I hadn't needed the door, those emissions never would have been emitted. Evil, evil Us citizen. I MUST PAY.
Now maybe you're getting the drift of all the pollution I've caused, so of course I MUST PAY.
Okay, so I've gone bezerk on my house and the police have hauled me away (causing more emissions) to the nuthouse. Who do you think is gonna pay for my stay there? It ain't free ya know. Now YOU NEED TO PAY for my sedatives.
Ya know, I think I'm getting the hang of these Obamanomics. What didn't get hung is my door.

Even with the low rate of successful Bulava firings, the Russians believe it will be capable of penetrating our missile defense and is a key part of the military's future nuclear arsenal. That must be why Great Leader might decide not to protect Poland and the former Czech Republics. You know, cuz Putin can get through our defense anyway. What a smart, smart leader.
A military official said the failures were due to the government rushing to overcome US developments in defense technologies. hmmmm. You think he meant the ones that Barack said he wants to dismantle? The ones that, if the Russians learn to penetrate we will be unable to reassemble or redevelop? Those technologies and defense weapons?

Even the French are doing it. According to DefenseNewsTV.com, France remains committed to maintaining its defense budget and pursuing its mission in Afghanistan despite the pressure caused by the economic slowdown, President Nicolas Sarkozy said. This while Great Leader is working on a plan to get the hell out of Afghanistan. France will be investing 377 billion euros ($527 billion) in new gear for its armed forces over the next 12 years in order to maintain and improve their capacity to take on 21st-century conflicts. Not a paltry sum by French standards.
Sarkozy said, "we are not going to allow the return of the Taliban, who cut off the hands of young girls who wore nail varnish, who decided that girls couldn't go to school, who shut up women in the burka, who stoned so-called adulterers. We can't allow that," Seems quite honorable to me.
On the other hand, take a look at what the US is doing under the leadership of the greatest community organizer evah. This from the Center For Security Policy. http://www.centerforsecuritypolicy.org/p18118.xml
The nuclear arsenal that has been built up over the last 64 years in America, has kept us all safe. Just by it's being, rogue nations throughout the world have discarded their ambitions of dominating their neighbors, if not the world. All that, and now Mr Obama wants to throw it all away for his obsession (and it is an obsession) of a nuclear free world. Ahhhhh. Can't you smell the daisies?
Now, President Obama wants us to permanently end all nuclear testing by ratifying the unverifiable (yes - UNVERIFIABLE) Comprehensive Test Ban Treaty (CTBT). Testing that the Ruskies have been doing with vigar to this day. 'O' also dismisses that the Senate rejected this 'idea' over a decade ago.
Grab all the rocks you can find and sharpen all your sticks. Soon, that's all we'll have available to defend ourselves.

Seems some clown claims he was thrown into a red pickup and forced to drink beer. The 'anonymous' victim was found by somebody walking across Legacy Highway near Centerville on Saturday morning.
The man told police that he had been kidnapped three hours earlier. He said that when he parked his car near his home, two Spanish-speaking men threw him in the truck, put a bag over his head and bound his hands and feet with a wire clothes hanger. (so we know it wasn't Mommy Dearest) The assailants reportedly put a gun to the man's stomach, tolded him not to sell his drugs in the area, forced two beers down his throat, untied him and threw him out on the road.
It is guessed that the reason for the beers was so authorities would suspect he was just drunk and made up the story.
If this guy's story is true, the kidnappers weren't exactly rocket surgeons. Two empty beer cans and a mangled wire hanger were found along the road.

Apparently some "critics" believe that the current system is too vague to deliver enough information to be useful.
Word has it that the new and improved alert chart will be made up of shades of blue, while the radicals in the know are pushing for shades of green.

Here we go again. 90th season folks, though the Pack actually goes back much farther. August 1st marks the start of the practice schedule with all our free agents signed, five of our draft picks and Jennings with a long term contract.
Crosby better get his act together with a 26th place ranking from last year. He wasn't the only reason for a losing season last year, but three kicks could have changed a 7-9 season to a division winning 10-6. A missed 52 yard game-winner against Minnesota, a 38 yard game-winner blocked in Chicago and a 53 yarder missed against Atlanta (we lost by 3) could have made a world of difference. Granted he wasn't the only reason for a bad season, with Rodgers not sealing the deal on a couple occasions and a less than stellar defense that put the Pack in those situations, but it is one position where we need a drastic turnaround.
And what about that qb situation for the guys in dark pink? Waiting and waiting for a decision from Brett. Where have I heard that before?
Here we go Pa-ack, here we go. Here we go Pa-ack, here we go.
Justice, Obama/Holder Style [Andy McCarthy]

New Black Panther Party operatives on videotape intimidating anti-Obama voters — charges dropped after DOJ had already won the case.
CIA Interrogators who obtained information that saved countless American lives — under investigation.
Bush officials who deliberated over national-security policies that prevented another 9/11 (many of which the Holder/Obama DOJ have defended in court and, however inadvertently, in Congress) — under investigation.

Mr Obama, if you can not control your children on visits abroad, they should be left at home in school where they could possibly be taught manners.
You and your family now represent all American people at all times. I would appreciate discretion in your and your family's conduct at all times.
Your family is not to be used as a billboard whether the message in question is yours or theirs. What's next? Paid advetisements?

Actually, .995 millionaire. Gary Staton has taken Nebraska for $600,00 in foodstamps and $100,000 in Medicaid. Nebraska has been paying this p.o.s. to breed for nearly 18 years. Then what does the ungrateful bastard do? He dumps the fruit of his loins off for the state to finish raising, then goes out to breed some more.
You see, Nebraska had a Safe Haven Law that allows 'people' like Staton to dump their children off on the state up to the age of 18. Staton has nine children from 1 to 17 and he dumped all of them.
Now, Staton has informed his dumped kids (which he is allowed to have a relationship with) that he is expecting to become a daddy again with Gail, his new girlfriend. He even showed them the ultrasound picture. That had to be a real Kodak moment.
Nebraskans aren't about to take this sitting down, so what do they do? Why, State Sen. Mike Friend said this "speaks to an inherent problem in our society" and SUGGESTED that the Omaha man undergo COUNSELING. That'll learn him."I don't know what to do about a guy like that," Friend told FOXNews.com. "I wish I had the ability to be able to figure it out and say, 'Hey, here's the answer.' This is clearly a troubled guy." (ya think?)
Since Gary's big dump the state has changed the law to read children under the age of 30 days.
So with those stern words and a warning of counseling, Gary went off to make more babies. Oh, that ultrasound he showed his children.....it's of twins. Isn't that lovely. I wonder if Gail is having a baby shower.

via FOX News - MEXICO CITY — Mexican authorities say two professional wrestlers found dead in a low-rent hotel in the capital may have been drugged to death by female robbers.
Autopsies are being performed on La Parkita or "Little Death" and Espectrito Jr. as two women were seen leaving their hotel room and hooker gangs are known to drug their 'johns' (or joses).
Maybe things would have turned out better had the hookers been in Amsterdam. That's where the city council is turning its attention to a pressing problem for one of the city's key business sectors -- banking and credit for prostitutes.
In a kind of clean up project, the city council has been asked to find a way to help bordello owners and sex workers gain more access to banks.
I'm thinking Latina workers might be quite the hit over in Sweden, and I'll bet the locals haven't been exposed to the high flying fast action of midget wrestling. Seems like a win-win to me.
