So once again we return to the Zaney world of high school sports and D-III recruiting battles.
"Zane is seriously? Quarterback reject!? Real mature alcoa. lol."
After I asked what the fuck those bitches said, and another Zane fan asked if they had won, Zane responded with boastful humor:
"haha by 40[*my edit* score (61-35)] drew. ya they got on me cause they do that... step step step step step step sit down! thing when you get subbed for. I fake sat down and they screwed up lol so they started yellin quarterback reject lol quite funny actually."
And while the biggest news in that status is that 61-35 no longer equals 26, now equaling 40. But that isn't what you want to hear about. The most impressive part is his ability to out-think alcoa's student section with the classic fake sitdown! Laugh out loud, that is actually quite funny Zane...if you're this guy
Or better yet, this guy
Another Zane fan, Dan Moyers, evidently lives to suck Zane's cock. "u threw nearly as many TD's as chase did. I'm not so sure he would start over you at MHS, soooo....", Moyers quipped. While not really smarter than your average high school fag, he is however enough of an expert to say that Alcoa's quarterback wasn't nearly as good as Zane, even though he did manage to actually play and not fuck up the school's string of state championships.
The level of faggotry in the post only gets worse, though it is less remarkable, just stupid. Zane says he just thought it was funny, and after a short pause "laughs out loud".
I threw out the baiting comment of "Alcoa=Fail", which recieved responses ranging from "preach it", to "=Epic Fail".
The best part of the last one is that Moyers' picture appeared directly to the left of it, so it looked sort of like this.
In other news, Zane is visiting Centre today, even though he claims he doesn't want to. I'm sure his opinion will change once he picks up a football lanyard at the bookstore that will give him endless opportunities to bring up his "recruitment". Nice Zane.

"Zane is seriously? Quarterback reject!? Real mature alcoa. lol."
A cypher if there ever was one. It certainly is ridiculous for Alcoa to call him a quarterback reject, considering his Dad started a football team so he and his brother could both play QB at MHS. Who cares that there were 3 people ahead of him his senior year, and none of them could manage to sustain Maryville's recent level of success. Either way, Alcoa might wan't to reconsider fucking with a soul-less ginger.
We will update as soon as information comes in.
This isn't related to the current "Zaney" (get it?) crisis, but it has been determined that Zane recieved Morning School because he "screwed up the admit sheet". He proceeded to diss attendance policy, calling it a "bitch". In short, he got morning school for being a dumbass, not a badass. But he still looks cool in facebook pictures.
No word yet on Attendance Policy's response.
Hallelujah Thank You God for this game finally its what ive been waiting for!!!

"I was in a Christian book store today and found this game i thought it was just like a little kids play guiter with music built in the guitar like something fisher-price might sell, "at first thats what i thought", because i didnt think a game like guitar hero and rock band (which i thoroughly HATE with a passion) i didnt think a game like gh and rb would ever come out in completely Christian music songs version. I remember the first guitar hero that came out i saw someone play a demo in a game store, i "Thought" this is a cool game but when i saw the lineup of artists and songs, i was like well so much for this, its not going to come in my house. Period. . I was hoping that an all Christian Guitar Hero would come out for Christains who love the Lord like praise and worship leaders, youthgroup leaders, and me. But since Christain music is not as popular as secular rock and roll, niether is anything that promotes Jesus (for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat) I thought there would never be a guitar hero out with all christian music, and i know this is not made by the same company that makes guitar hero or rock band, because they are too busy promoting satanic rotten disgusting lyrics in the songs in their games. THANK YOU Digital Praise for comeing out with this game, I LOVE IT i was so excited when i found out it was the same concept as gh but only had Christian music, i was smiling ear to ear."
The most obvious problem with this is that they have no understanding of basic sentence structure. The first sentence contains over 70 words! I know it's the Internet and people don't worry about using perfect grammar, neither do I. I also realize the person reviewing the steaming pile of shit these people call a video game is from West Virginia, and therefore we shouldn't expect him to be able to read. That he managed to write a 70 word sentence is truly amazing. But he just continues to do things don't make any sense. He has no idea what a quotation mark is for. The man fills his heart with hate for...video games? That is just insane and completely opposes the teachings of Christ. But despite that, Andy goes on to say that this game is only for people who love the lord as much as he and youth, music, and worship leaders do. Further, he claims that Christian music is not as popular as secular music because it promotes Christ. This might be the most offensive and idiotic thing he says, because it takes about 5 minutes of listening to a christian rock station to realize Christians will buy anything(just like this), and it takes exactly zero skill to become a famous christian artist. He is right in his assertion that this is not made by the same company that made Guitar Hero and Rock Band, but he is wrong in suggesting that their motivation is to promote "satanic rotten disgusting lyrics in the songs in their games." They use the songs in their games because the songs aren't shitty.
Sorry, I know you all knew that stuff. It just really pisses me off that the church has been able to manipulate the dumbest among us. I guess you gotta do what you gotta do to survive. Pretty much the same reason Guitar Hero didn't include christian music.
More wild and crazy Christians!
"I'm so glad that me and my little ones can finally rock out totally awesome-style with the praise of God in our hearts. None of that Satanic meaningless dribble like in those secular Guitar "Hero"(I put that in quotations because Jesus is the only hero...ever). My kids have been begging me for one of those Rock Band games but I told them"Unless a song is about praise and worship of our lord, I don't it in my house" Because as everyone knows, if a song isn't about God or Jesus, it's about worshiping Satan. My son tried to argue that a lot of secular songs are about personal feelings or deep thought and thats when I knew I'd have to set him straight. Now that he got his hands on Guitar Praise he can totally rock out without sinning."
Those are gonna be some fucked up kids. My biggest problem with all of this is that I haven't been able to make millions yet. All you have to do is find a popular product that regular people like, and make a shittier version with the word "Christian" on it somewhere. South Park did this a while back, and NEVER has it been more true.
Geekologie has a great review.
"It's available for pre-order now, but that's not what Jesus would do. Jesus would wait to read some reviews and then steal it from Wal-Mart. Trust me, I went to Sunday school."
I agree. He would then upload the program files and make them available to everyone as a torrent. And I not only went to Sunday School, I was also invited to speak at Maryville Middle School's FCA a few years ago. In case you were wondering, I spoke about hot and spicy chicken sticks.

Not really relevant, but still cooler than Zane.
Finally the much anticipated answer to a question that has had the whole world talking. Many said he loved it, as it was a chance to wear a football t-shirt in front of kids he doesn't usually see. That wasn't the case, and those who said he hated it celebrate an evening of vindication.. I feel your pain man. I always prefered ISD myself. But then again I wasn't an arrogant douche and the teacher didn't fucking hate me.
We really need a Christian guitar hero? Evidently we do, according to this mom.
Stephanie (Miami, OK) 1/8/09 6:27 PM
I am so thankful for your company. Upon hearing about these guitar games, I went onto pluggedonline.com. In reading the review of GH3, I learned that ultimately, you are performing for Satan himself. I had a hard time believing this as most of my Christain friend have this game for their kids. I still tried it out at the store and fell in love with the guitar experience. Compromise was about to set in. Praise God that a friend told me about your product! I purchased it as a gift for my 11 yo and myself. I have had so much fun with this and have seriously thanked the Lord that someone came up with this. But....WHERE ARE THE EXPANSION PACKS?!?!? I need more!!!!
That is right. Playing Guitar Hero is performing for Satan himself. I wish I had known that before I played as GOD you dumb bitch.
This is too good. Im posting all the comments.
*This is completely insane. You can't prove or justify something by saying it repeatedly.*
*This next one is the enlish language's equivalent to a failed abortion*

Guitar Praise Rocks (for real)
Aaron (New Mexico) 1/7/09 6:29 AM
I loved the game. I was worried that the game would not be as fun or as well made as rockband and guitar hero because of '70's words on the box such as: solid rock and other words that old people think that our new digital generation uses. However, I was very impressed by the bulk of the game. The game has customization options, guitars that you can earn, and a much nicer announcer and crowd who don't dash your dreams of becoming a rock star with the dreaded "You Failed", followed by booing and mild comic violence. Some of the more advanced songs, on expert, are too fast for me to play at my current skill level. The game does not register a correctly played note when multiple frets are depressed. For example if you are playing a solo on a real guitar you can have more than one finger on a single string but only the highest note will be played. A tapping feature, where fast notes will be accepted as correctly played notes when tapped in sequence, without strumming each note, would make the insane solos more playable. Another small game detail: The marketing reps should have talked to the actual kids who would be playing the game about the kind of words that they use to describe rock. The announcer also sounds more like a pastor than a rockstar. I can tell that they ment well, but they need to do some more research on the little things to make this game even better than rockband and guitar hero. Overall, the gameplay is great and the plethora of songs from the best Christian music artists pretty much rocked my face off and caused me to do some pretty wild rock moves which I probably could never repeat.

I have always liked the Guitar Hero / Rock Band games, but could never really fully get into them because of the secular music and some demonic graphics. I have been waiting for a Christian version for what seems like forever. My wife new that and decided to surprise me with this for Christmas. Wow, I love it. We've been playing to the wee hours of the nights while the babies are asleep. My father in law has also taken a liking to the game and is playing it as I type this. I can't wait for the next expansion pack. Thank you Digital Praise.
jmm (Ohio) 1/3/09 2:20 PM
Thank you for making this game! It's great and i love the fact that it's for the PC and doesn't require a video game system. LOVE the music except for the 80's rock stuff and can't wait for some expansion packs!! Keep up the good work of "Praising God Through Interactive Media".
Then there is this blog post. This is crazy, people.
So anyone who has ever read this blog at all knows Indie music is not a big deal. Hip hop is our personal flavor of choice, and that will always be the case. This is the exception to the rule.
I can safely say that Liquid Swords and Enter the 36 Chambers were the first two albums that captivated me. Something about the sounds and ideas coming out of those two records just struck me unlike anything I had ever heard. Maybe it was because I was introduced to them in the dead of winter (when the RZA has said they were meant to be heard), or maybe it was because I was just really stoned (Which is the way the RZA said they were meant to be heard), but they swept me up in their cinematics and imagery and I have been a Wu-Stan ever since.
Now keep in mind, I have never been an indie music fan. Even in the Pre-Wu era of my life I pretty much stayed to rap, and bands in the mainstream like matchbox TWENTY and RHCP. But I picked up an eMusic card one day at Circuit City just to check it out, I figure ten dollars for 20 songs cannot go wrong. So I of course got on and bought a couple Wu songs from mixtapes, and picked up some stuff from other artists I respect, like Blu. But I was somewhat haunted by the accusation my friend had made a few days before that I didn't listen to any music made by white people. He wasn't really wrong, I am after all a huge supporter of WDVX and feel that it is the pinnacle of what a radio station should be. Nothing is more fun than stopping by the studios to catch a Blue Plate, or simply relaxing to the haunting and moving sounds that the harmonies of bluegrass provide. So after I decided to get some white people music, I picked out 5 or 6 tracks from the pickin on series, just to hear the refreshing sound bluegrass artist can give to a song. All was well, each song was enjoyed. So I started digging deeper into the darkness that is choosing good indie music, and as I sorted through playlist after play list, I kept noticing one album popping to the top: In the Aeroplane Over the Sea, by a band called Neutral Milk Hotel.
Now while I am no expert or even casual listener of this style of music, I did find it odd that I had never heard of this. After all, I was familiar with OK Computer, the only album that came close to recieving the praise that Aeroplane did. So of course, I check it our. Picking randomly I play the clips of a few song and download two of them, In The Aeroplane Over the Sea, and Holland, 1945. So I transfer the files to my iTunes, as always, and leave them for a couple days. Sure I listen to some Decemberists and Death Cab every now and then, everyone needs to feel genuine emotional pain from music every now and then. I feel like that is one thing that helps keep us grounded in reality. But those instances are few and far between for me, at least they were at the time. A couple days later I finally got around to listening to the tracks, and I was simply blown away. The music is simple but at the same time complicated on a level I'm not sure I'll ever be able to understand. Holland, 1945 was the first one that grabbed my attention. The song is played at a frantic pace that grabs your attention only to immediately yield to Jeff Magnum's song writing. I can't describe the song, or even begin to choose what line is my favorite, so I'm just going to post the whole thing
The only girl I've ever loved
Was born with roses in her eyes
But then they buried her alive
One evening 1945
With just her sister at her side
And only weeks before the guns
All came and rained on everyone
Now she's a little boy in Spain
Playing pianos filled with flames
On empty rings around the sun
All sing to say my dream has come
But now we must pack up every piece
Of the life we used to love
Just to keep ourselves
At least enough to carry on
And now we ride the circus wheel
With your dark brother wrapped in white
Says it was good to be alive
But now he rides a comet's flame
And won't be coming back again
The Earth looks better from a star
That's right above from where you are
He didn't mean to make you cry
With sparks that ring and bullets fly
On empty rings around your heart
The world just screams and falls apart
But now we must pack up every piece
Of the life we used to love
Just to keep ourselves
At least enough to carry on
And here's where your mother sleeps
And here is the room where your brothers were born
Indentions in the sheets
Where their bodies once moved but don't move anymore
And it's so sad to see the world agree
That they'd rather see their faces fill with flies
All when I'd want to keep white roses in their eyes
After I was slapped in the face by this haunting imagery and heartache, I was hooked and had to know more. So upon a quick google search I found out this album is itself as highly revered as any piece of music can be. I was not the only one who found it completely captivating. I immediately went and listened to the title track, and yet again could not turn myself away from the raw emotion and honesty the poured forth. The plain message of live life while you're young hit me with such urgency that I had to learn more, and hear the rest of this album.
A google or two later, I discovered the inspiration behind the masterpiece. It was indeed filled with heartache, anguish, love, hope, and loss that one would expect. The leader of the group, Jeff Magnum, had read the Diary of Anne Frank and he fell into deep despair upon reaching the inevitable conclussion.
And I read this, and for the next few weeks I listened to the album as somewhat of a tribute to the innocent girl who died 50+ years before Jeff got ahold of her diary. But as I listened more and more it dawned on me; this is no tribute. It is a love letter to Anne, a love letter from someone who never had the chance to express his feelings.
This is the only album that has ever been able to grab my attention like those original Wu-Albums. And as much as I love the Wu, there is no comparing the two. This album is entrancing, captivating in the truest sense. You want to know everything you can. People who hear this album form groups and start websites. It has the feel of War Era Europe and an ability to capture, if only for a moment, the way it must have felt. Even if this album were not full of beautiful writing and meaning, it would still stand out due to it's ability to stay with you. You find yourself singing these songs wherever you go. Perhaps that is because of the material, who knows. All I know is that after hearing this album I will never be the same. It hits a note deep within the listener that music should never reach. It is indie rock's Gloomy Sunday in that it scares you to hear the power that a person has conveyed through music. It is impossible to hear this album and not feel conflicted. On one hand the greatness leaves you grateful that you were one of the lucky few to have discovered this gem. But on the other, you listen to it with the knowledge that no music will ever be able to touch you on this level. In a way I believe this album finds people. If you arent ready for it, then you probably didn't read all of this. If you did, odds are you are here because of curiosity about an album you keep hearing about. Google albums to hear before you die. It wont take terribly long to figure out that this many people cannot be wrong.
I cannot sit here and describe to you how great this album is or what makes it that good. If I had that kind of talent I wouldn't be sitting here telling you about it. So forgive my ramblings above. Don't hold them against the album , give it a shot. In fact, give it a shot is not a strong enough endorsement. This album was the last music Jeff Magnum made. NMH broke up after the record, partially because of Jeff's breakdown. I think the fact that the man who made the album was practically destroyed by it says more about it's power than I ever could.
Download this. If you cant torrent I'll email it to you.

please, just watch even if you dont care or understand some of the concepts because everything he says concerns you, personally.
this first video is fairly long but is pretty good intro to schiffs ideas. a couple things to note whilst viewing movie film:
1) note the date -- 8/26/2006!
2) note the dow -- over 11k (now under 8k)!
3) note the outright douchebaggery of art laffer -- "i'll bet you a penny!"
4) note peter's calm, direct delivery
back to the future...
1/10/2009 -- CNN
and lastly, a collection of peters trademark analogies (both comedic and informative!)
Sure it was for a good cause, but what the fuck are Kenny Rogers, Whitney Houston, and Michael Jackson doing with Bruce, Willy, and some random fucks no one remembers? Am I really supposed to believe they all got together with the cameras rolling and belted out a ballad of love for humanity?
I didn't realize that song was talking about shitty mids.
As Billy tha Pusher says:
"Bill is findin the realas over the hatas and is still sayin hi hater."
OK, so none of that makes sense, and I'm pretty sure it just means the only way he knows how to rhyme is by saying the same word differently. But to answer your question, yes. Thats a given, essentially.
If anyone speaks skank and can translate the above quote feel free to leave it in the comments.
Reports now say he suffered a seizure. Robert Byrd may also have suffered health problems. Not to wish any ill will towards Senator Byrd, but it would be even more ironic for the only former clansmen in the congress to suffer health problems as we welcome a black present

Well, he actually thought we all should know. In addition to taking more pictures of himself minus a shirt and plus a hard-ass look, he plans on "watching history. Socialist or not", he also believes we can. Sweet dude. By history I assume he means this premature ejaculation of a snow day that MHS thought they could slip past me. I'm onto you motherfuckers.

Then What Happened? 
crazy flow n beat
Maryville is closed. That place has really fallen off. As my friend reminded me tonight, on days after a long weekend you never got anything done at that school anyway. Not to mention it is inauguration day, I feel like this is the kind of day I enjoyed in high school. Back then we used to walk through 4 feet of this shit just to catch the bus, which didn't have heat, seats, or a roof. Those were the days... But these aren't, so tomorrow is a day of celebration and car accidents for students around the city. My guess is Casteel and Coulter just wanted to watch Obama's inauguration, I hear they're big fans of his. Enjoy the festivities!
What do I suggest? Stop wasting your time wishing for snow days. The best day I ever had was when the power went out all across town. We got to spend about an hour of class dicking around in the dark, and we all got to go home around 12:45 because they couldn't provide us all with lunch. After that we spent the rest of the day riding around in my friend's truck bed and throwing bananas at cars. So if you REALLY want out of school someone will man up and destroy a couple power lines somewhere. Otherwise shut the fuck up.
so, if you hadnt heard, the inauguration of america's first black president is tomorrow. a truly historic moment for all african americans no doubt. and naturally, it being MLK day today, there is an inclination (obsession) for the media to point out (beat into the ground) their supposed similarities and philosophical overlap.
but this is what i dont get.
the only similarities b/w Martin Luther King Jr. (one of the single greatest voices of social reform, justice, & individual liberty) and barack obama (a cunning politician & excellent orator) is their skin color and speaking skills.
fact is, obama's proposed plans & policies are in complete opposition with MLK's virtues. his reckless spending, expansion of government, and accession of war will only spit in the face of everything MLK fought for. the rich will get richer and the poor will get poorer, while the middle class will be all but wiped out.
while i understand the historical and racial significance of this huge event, i think its sick that the media so brazenly superimposes the true legend & virtue of Martin Luther King Jr. onto the image (after all, he is only an image) of a socialist politician.
when i think of true political champions of MLK's philosophy, i immediately think of john f. kennedy & ron paul. these two white men reflect MLK's personal philosophy and legacy more than obama ever will.
Even my church wasn't this crazy...
So by digging a little deeper(going to the home page) I was able to find this. I knew shit had gotten crazy. But I honestly cannot believe this is possible. Really people? I mean REALLY?
Here is a letter they recieved and posted:
After watching Louis Theroux documentary I was perplexed at the irony of yet another so called ‘righteous’ religious group that breaks one of the 10 commandments (of which homosexuality isn’t even mentioned) the basic message of God is don’t do anything that will cause physical/emotional/spiritual harm to any living person, your preaching of hate is detriment to that philosophy. The message of Jesus is that all people are deserving of love and forgiveness, even if they have committed grievious harm towards you.
The bible itself was written in a dead language, translated into another dead language, then the contents of the book were voted upon at the council of nicea in 374 AD and translated again and again, so how can the message still be pure? How could a book that is the work of The Supreme Being be full of so many paradox’s that even I,as a child of 10, could see? [(their's)Ed: Why do these people have to lie SO MUCH?!? It is beyond perplexing; it’s warp and woof; it’s delusion time for them. How could this brute possibly think he is remotely credible with this type of blatant lying? Yikes!]
God loves us all, regardless, and only wants us to live in peace and harmony with one another, I pray you reach enlightenment.
Go in peace
Now I wont even post the whole response, just the first paragraph. (Maybe 10% of the whole thing)
No one is even remotely interested in your goofy human philosophy. You don’t get to rewrite God’s Word, and you certainly will have zero success in changing your Creator. You’re a stupid clay pot made by the Lord your God to destroy you for his glory. You sound like some stupid cockroach jabbering about what you suppose God should be. Get a Bible and read it, and find out what he really is. "
What do you think the title of this post was? If you guessed, "Take Your Psychobabble Down The Road To Your Whore Houses Called "Churches" ... Or Perhaps Try Oprah", then you were absolutely right! Yes, historical facts are now considered psychobabble.
Obama Is The Antichrist
None of that is photoshopped. People really believe all of this. Somehow Sarah Palin's withcraft blessing seems a little more reasonable now. A little. (Emphasis below is mine)
"More Evidence Obama is the Beast Antichrist: In the week leading up to his coronation as king of the world, Bloody Baby-Killer Beast Obama bragged about how much he will build a fag army. As part of his fierce advocacy for fag special rights, he’s promised to quickly dispense with the mythical “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” policy of the military. This is symbolic of his love of all things sodomitical. The fags already have all the run of the military their dark hearts desire. This is just to put a big punctuation mark on how much Bloody Beast Baby-Killer Obama loves fags. And why, you might ask, must this Beast build an army? Because, as he told the brutes of Baltimore on January 17, 2009, he intends to lead this evil nation in declaring a new independence. He calls it an independency from bigotry. Balderdash! It will be a declaration of independence against the standards of God! He intends to declare “independence” – in other words declare war – against Christ himself. You can read all about this in Revelation 19. And when he does – hear us on this earth dwelling rebels – Bloody Baby-Killer Beast Obama is going down! Christ is going to whoop him good, sound, once and for all, and cast him into chains of darkness, prepared for the devil and his angels, forever!"
People read this and related it to Jesus? What bible are you people reading?!
Then there is this guy, who wonders why Obama supporters think God is OK with the not hating "Gays". His main point is that Obama's church is led by satan.
We can only assume he is cool with the good people from "God Hates Fags", a website run by Westboro Baptist. Seems like they're onto something the rest of us the world has missed.
Nice work America. You can really see Christ working through them.
Today, on the eve of Barack Obama's historic inauguration, we fittingly celebrate the birth of Martlin Luther King, Jr. He was a man who sought peace, understanding, justice, and above all love. So today I'll be posting several tributes to the man who called upon our nation to stand up and reach her full potential, to cash that promisory note of individual freedom and liberty that the founders had signed so many years before. So I guess there's only one place for us to start, August 28, 1963, on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial...
"But we refuse to believe that the bank of justice is bankrupt. We refuse to believe that there are insufficient funds in the great vaults of opportunity of this nation. And so, we've come to cash this check, a check that will give us upon demand the riches of freedom and the security of justice."

If you’re living in the world today, few labels have affected your life more than “crime”. The most basic explanation of crime is the act of breaking the law. But like most things, this is a simplified, easy to understand idea of the truth. Quick to understand, and without the uneasy feeling that comes along with conflicted feelings of right and wrong, this answer ignores the complexities of individual situations. Instead it paints everything black or white, creating a world of absolutes where right and wrong is decided by a check list. The pursuit of truth leaves the arena of critical thinking and discernment, a venue the western world has deemed the only way of finding justice, entering the field of science where we seek to make proving guilt as easy and efficient as possible. Mass produced justice.
How did we allow this to happen? It is more complicated than you think. It is not a result of more crime in a society lacking moral fiber. Music, TV, and video games are not at fault. We are. As a society the technological revolution of the 20th century gave our nation a taste of convenience, and the post-war economy made us gluttons. All essential tasks in our personal lives became simplified by machines and technology, and it certainly improved our quality of life. For a while we were able to handle it, and even with technology we still managed to raise children and remain involved in the self-governance of our nation. But as we found ourselves in a world that allowed minimal effort to receive instant results, we began to expect it in all aspects of life. Children were babysat by televisions instead of watched by their parents. Not the images on the TV, but the lack of attention the children received contributed to the newfound delinquency. But it was still much easier at the time and delayed the consequences, so the popularity soared.
Just as parents were not willing to raise their children and make sacrifices at home, they became increasingly unwilling to make sacrifices in public. In a system like ours, freedom and self governance are dependent upon an informed and involved public. The Romans understood this, as did the founders. This is the reason the Constitution instructed that all governmental affairs be handled on the lowest level possible, so to ensure the highest amount of representation. But as convenience became our God, we lost the desire to properly self govern. The public became too lazy to take the time to understand the problems facing the nation, and too greedy to sacrifice for the national good. For years our economic system has been to spend, spend, spend in hopes that the spending stimulates the economy enough to make up the difference.
High up on the hill, the people we had elected to represent us saw what was happening. They understood that nuanced opinions and realistic, disciplined solutions were not what the public sought. So the idea was replaced with the image, and the minority who had held out hope for the American people were replaced by men of hollow words, promises, and principles. The results have been abysmal. Take illegal immigration, a topic that has been debated on the hill for decades. Countless bills and acts have been passed, and millions of dollars have been spent. But how much have we accomplished? Nothing, because no politician will step up and face the consequences of suggesting solutions involving sacrifice. We live in an era where a politician who brings in as much pork as possible is one who will be re-elected again and again. These same people promise more social or military (depending on the party) spending, while also cutting taxes. We allocate three trillion dollars to bailout poorly run companies as we face a ten-trillion dollar national debt. Yet none of this is debated on the news or in the papers. We simply watch on as those in the halls of power are allowed to set the course of our so called republic.
The simple truth is that no one wants to hear that controlling immigration, fighting wars for fun, or housing and feeding the poor will cost a lot of money. While low taxes are a wonderful thing that can jump-start an economy, they are not a right of the same people who demand the governments help around every bend. No one wants to hear that a ten-trillion dollar debt does not go away because we stimulate our economy, and no one wants to hear that giving away $3 trillion we don’t have does not help. Unless we somehow pay off all of our debt, our children and grandchildren will spend most of their lives working to pay off the interest of the debt we have incurred, meaning we have to simply take out bigger loans to cover all of the programs we are struggling to support today.
But what does all of this have to do with crime? A lot actually. As the United States and her cities grew, so did the crime rates. When the people demanded a solution from their elected leaders, what they got was not a pro-active plan that targeted the roots of crime like poverty or single parent homes, complete with a tax plan and revised budget showing how the people would pay for the plan. No Washington simply wrote itself a blank check and began passing legislation creating new crimes and laws. As long as new laws were passed, the public saw them as heroes protecting children and families from the evils of the world. Never really thinking of or minding the erosion of our freedoms, we relaxed in the convenience of no longer having to teach our children to tell the difference between right and wrong. We embraced no longer having to worry about our children making decisions for themselves, instead allowing them to be told what decision to make by the all knowing government. We put the government in charge of regulating the collective conscience of our nation, and abandoned the idea that men contain the ability to do all of this on our own. Our dependence on convenience has compromised our independence.
All this leads to the question , “If Washington is so wrong, what is the definition of crime?”. Is it criminals robbin’ innocent men every time? No, crime is simply the assertion of independence and liberty of an individual over the law that suppresses the actions of their neighbors. Simply put, crime is to stand up for something. Sometimes it is really bad, but sometimes it is really good. In fact, the greatest leaders in our history were nothing more than criminals. Thomas Jefferson, Ben Franklin, and George Washington were all criminals who should have been hung according to the law. The underground railroad was perhaps the most important organized crime syndicate in history. Martin Luther King, Jr. led in and encouraged more crime than perhaps any man in history. The simple fact is that any hero is at the same time a criminal. To become criminal one must forsake convenience, facing a reality of ridicule and punishment.
Tuesday, Barack Obama will take the Oath of Office and become our nation's first black President. He brings with him hope for the change our nation desperately needs, but were it not for the sacrifices of millions of criminals over the years his Presidency would never have been possible. In a way, America is a nation founded by, built by, protected by, and healed by criminals. Through all the promises of hope and change, it is important to realize that nothing can come of it unless responsible citizens commit the crimes it takes to bring about that change. Anything less would be criminal.
This is gonna be quick, because we have a lot more to get to today. But our featured recruit, 0 Star Zane Winders has decided to include what may or may not be a clue to his decission in his facebook status...
Zane is hell ya Boardin at Ober :) just think it could be every weekend on better slopes at E & H?
Lets examine this more closely...
"hell ya"- We know he is excited about something, as he was so blinded by adrenaline he said ya, instead of yeah. Thats pretty extreme, he must have a huge cock. I wonder what that could be? His ski trip?
"Boardin at Ober"- This clearly lets us know that skiing is not what has him so aroused, even though he clearly enjoys/is superior at extreme sports. Even more extreme.
":)"- Just a smile to charm all the girls out there looking to get frat-cocked by a star athlete at a D-III school.
"just think it could be every weekend on better slopes at E & H?"- This is a big one!! I am proud to announce, as 420 Chambers first exclusive story, Zane Winders will be an Emory & Henry Panther, or something.
Tomorrow at noon citizens from all over the state will meet to protest coal in 4 cities. Here is the Facebook event info. All programs begin at noon. I believe.
In response to three separate TVA coal disasters along the Tennessee River, community organizers in Tennessee have coordinated a day of action against coal in four cities.
In Knoxville, the rally will begin at noon in Market Square, outside TVA's corporate headquarters. In Nashville, the rally will take place with the MLK memorial parade at noon. In Chattanooga, the rally will be held at the TVA office on 1101 Market Street. In Johnson City, the rally will be held at noon at the Tri-Cities Business Park off of Highway 75.
If you plan to attend the protests, please remember to dress warmly. If you have the chance, bring a camera and a friend!
Protest organizers issue the following points:
• TVA must stop claiming that the disaster area is safe, because this misleads the public. Evacuees from the area have been denied recognition and medical attention by TVA officials. How can TVA be paying people to evacuate from their homes, while telling the news media that the site is safe?
• Today, Tennesseeans in Nashville, Chattanooga, Knoxville, and Johnson City have coordinated a statewide protest against TVA. The protest is part of the nationwide Power Past Coal campaign.
• As President-elect Barack Obama’s administration takes office, the “Green New Deal” program cannot include coal in any way. In the spirit of Franklin D. Roosevelt’s first 100 days when TVA was created, Obama should put TVA on the fast track to a clean energy system.
• Coal is filthy from cradle grave. From mountaintop-removal surface-mining to burning coal emissions in the air, coal is dirty, dangerous, and destructive.
• TVA should fund an adequate medical response to the Kingston disaster including long term health monitoring, instead of paying private contractors to sweep it under the rug.
• TVA and all relevant agencies should hold multiple public hearings for an investigation into the impoundment failure.
• In conjunction with a citizen oversight group with final approval, TVA should develop a public timeline of the clean-up process.
• TVA must implement an advance-warning system for all communities located near coal waste sites.
• Coal ash should be treated as a hazardous waste, forced to comply with the strictest federal health and safety standards.
• Waste impoundments must be lined, sealed, and monitored transparently, to protect streams and groundwater.
• This is not just a spill. This is a disaster, and it should be treated as such.

I'm going to try to make it, I'd love to see some other people there. Screw TVA.

As signing day nears, the eyes and ears of the nation have diverted from Barack Obama's historic inauguration to focus on one young man. That young man is Zane Winders (yes, that really is his real name, not a stupid nickname) and he will be making his decission on where to play lower level college football sometime in the next couple of weeks. Those of you who know Zane know that he is quite the arrogant faggot, thinking that all of his douchebaggery is acceptable because he is an awesome football player. Well he isn't that awesome, but he is a world class douche. As such, he has decided that it is his duty to keep us all updated about his recruitment via his facebook status. Many star athletes have done this before, but Zane's is different in that before his posts his recruitment recieved exactly no attention, and after it will recieve attention from my readerless blog! So anyway, keep updated with everydays Zane update. As for today, he just got back from a visit to the E & H (Emory & Henry, according to last nights status. He left at 6:30 this morning!) and they "know what they're doing!" He also said he is "thinking hard". We can only assume/hope he is thinking of ways to remind us all that he plays football.
These are my favorite things ever...from today...after I got home.
The rest will not appear on here. This was my least favorite (very bottom), and I do not think it is funny. Grow up anonymous.
I found a lot of cool things today while I was letting my mind rot.
Saw this posted on another site. Lets hope Mckay has finally stood up to all bullying!
After several emails and a little further research, I have been informed that ebaums world, not 4chan is responsible. My bad guys, thanks for correcting me.
Look at this image and what do you see?
That's right, a winner. I alone, in my 15 years of living have acomplished more than anyone of you gathered here. I've been checking your site with my watch group and I must you people have a problem. A serious problem. Why are you like this? Wouldn't the world be a better place if you all set goals in life like I did and try to achieve try to go for your dreams instead of bad mouthing and picking and bullying on other people? Take my challenge. Do not reply, I repeat DO NOT reply a single not a single bad word to me or this post, and you will be a step further in your life, and to reach to be someone as good as me.

Here's a link. It is truly horrific.
Here is just one example of the courage shown by the No Cussing Club.
" When my sister entered high school as a freshman, a group of girls surrounded her during lunch. They knew that she never used bad language. They started teasing her for being a “goodie two shoe”. They told her that she would eventually have to use some bad words if she wanted to fit in. What hurt most was that some of the girls in the crowd were her friends from junior high. Then all the girls started yelling at her to say the “F” word. Her friends stood by and did nothing while the rest of the crowd taunted her. My sister never gave in.
She stuck to what she knew was right. She knew that the most important people supported her; mom, dad and her brothers and sisters. At the end of that school year, one of her friends that had been in the crowd told her that she was sorry about what happened that day and that during the whole thing she was hoping that my sister wouldn’t give in. She said that my sister was a great example to her of standing up for what you believe in.
My sister is in college now and she still doesn’t cuss. She is a great example to me."
She is a great example to all of us!

He died yesterday morning, the world will truly miss the star of possibly the most ridiculous thing ever created.
And yes, what I am about to type is really his name on there.
Alex Vs Alex is rededicating his life to christ school and ball.
Fair enough, but then Justin Tyler Armstrong comes in with the line, "happy to hear about the Christ part man!".
So I had to step in and let this fool know who he was dealing with. My comment?
"The guys mom is a fucking prophet, what did you expect?"
God damn I'm on it right now.

You put on for tennessee
But its plain for all to see
You got put-owned by Jodie Meeks
Cuz ya D is fucking weak
You got bent over like a freak
Still shit is all you speak
But I guess its all you know
Your game, hair, and ya flow
Suck cock just like a ho
Even your head is just so-so
So shut your fuckin trap
Stop hatin on the cats
Like Ghost we swing back
Like Mase ya jaw will crack
You still runnin ya lip
I guess you want it split
Maybe that will keep it zipped
Till you back up what you spit
Your mom must be embarrassed
Shoulda had that miscarriage
Im calling you an heiress
A poor mans Tony Harris
You call yourself solution
Youre nothing but pollution
You play like you been boozin
The rim you keep abusin
Where is that solution
Your team just keeps losing
Shot at the mirror by Cupid
Your shit just went stupid
Your tats all look putrid
Like you werent even lucid
Overcome by dick riding
Answer's done all that youre trying
He even whips you at rhyming
And has a little timing
He only goes to games
But still knows his team mates names
Your skills arent even lame
They disrespect the game
And everyone whos played
Plus the greats who gave it fame
Theres no face you can save
I just left your shit fileted.
Heres the abortion of music "Bmaze calls I Put On For Tennessee"
also, mad love to Ryan Parker for making the Jodie Meeks song. Enjoy.
Wow, Smoove actually didn't waste all his money on shitty reg and could afford a decent looking video with some white wimmens in it!
This, however, looks like it could have been shot in prision, and makes me want to fill my ears with hot wax. Maze needs to step his game up..maybe he should wear one of those ridiculously misplaced headbands like the rest of his team. or mabye he should have some girls in the video. maybe he should just realize that music's not his bag, and apperantly after meeks dropped 54 on him last night, basketball's not looking that great either.
So yeah. That happened. Jodie Meeks walked into TBA and dropped more points on UT than any Wildcat has ever done. 54 points, ten threes, both UK records, most points in regulation this decade, most points in the SEC in 20 years. Unbelievable. The Vols were exposed tonight, I've got a hunch this team is about to implode.
Anyway, here's the stories.
Oh, and Dwight Perry's facebook status is raw.
Dwight Just witnessed some unbelievable twisted shit tonight in Knoxville....54 points, really???
