Softball

Last night of ball. We won our 1st game 11-10 by scoring in the bottom of the 7th. We won game 2 (the Championship) 16-11 but it was their 1st loss so we played a game 3 (deciding game) and lost 13-7. We were simply gave out.

Ash, our 2nd basemen hurt her knee... she's had 2 surgeries prior and hopefully not a 3rd; keep her in your thoughts.

I went 3-3 / 3-4 / 2-4 for a season total of 44 out of 60 (.733 average).

Softball

We won game 1 of the Tourney 23-7 with continued hitting and defense... Game 2 was against the 2nd place team and they beat us 11-9. We didn't hit until late and had some defensive errors that let them score some runs. I went 3-4 in G1 and 2-4 in G2.

Roman (drugged and anally raped a 13 year old) Polanski

Roman (drugged and anally raped a 13 year old) Polanski is in jail in Switzerland fighting extradition to the US; you can read about this story at most websites (news and blogs). Most blogs will be telling you about the crimes and what should be done to Roman (drugged and anally raped a 13 year old) Polanski while most news sites will be making excuses and using a lot of 'alleged's.

Softball (and baseball natch)

before the gameWe won again last night to officially take 1st place going into the tourney tonight. We finished 11-3.

The other team played good defense and held us to 13 runs (the way we were hitting, that's good defense) but we played great defense and shut them out. 13-0 in 5 innings and everyone's home early. I went 2 out of 3 for a season of 31 out of 41 (.756) .. that doesn't count errors / fielder's choices or walks (the walks I didn't count at all, hits or at bats) so my on base percentage is even better heh


In baseball, the Braves won again (14 out of 17) and are 2 back from the Rockies for the wildcard [and 4 back from Philly for the division, but with 6 back, wc is all that is realistic].

That was about what I thought too. (and no fair pointing out that the caption can be done with one hand o.O)

ObamaCare

Alternate title: Democrats tell the truth

The Democrats, trying to stiffen their party's spines on the contentious issue, say it's unfair to bar illegal immigrants from paying their own way in a government-sponsored exchange. Legal immigrants, they say, regardless of how long they've been in the United States, should be able to get government-subsidized health care if they meet the other eligibility requirements.

"Legal permanent residents should be able to purchase their plans, and they should also be eligible for subsidies if they need it. Undocumented, if they can afford it, should be able to buy their own private plans. It keeps them out of the emergency room," said Rep. Michael M. Honda, California Democrat and chairman of the Congressional Asian Pacific American Caucus. (link)

At least now they aren't trying to cover up the fact that they believe that the illegal immigrants should get health insurance (yes they still call it 'healthcare') although they stop short of saying the illegal immigrants should receive subsidies for it (that will be next or the amnesty first).

Now if we could get the Obamabots to start being truthful on a couple of other points: 1) it's health insurance you're talking about, not healthcare; everyone in this country has healthcare already; 2) costs; tell the people the real costs and let them decide then (of course this is a big non-starter for the overhaul, but at least you'd be honest) and 3) get a grip on the number of people that actually NEED insurance (not the number of people that do not have it) before you rail against the hundreds of millions of people that are doing just fine the way it is.

The Republican party has been called the party of 'no' by the media and the Democrats (redundancy alert) but in this case a 'no' is much better than the clusterfuck that the Obama administration is attempting to push through.
