We Love You Natalie (Portman)!!!!

With all the anticipation that was leading up to the Oscars, and everyone talking about Natalie Portman being a no brainer for Best Actress a friend (@MookinMia) reminded me of the many talents of Ms. Portman.

Throughout the years Portman has displayed a wide variety of characters from the sweet innocence of the of her characters in ‘Beautiful Girls’ and ‘Garden State’ to the strong character of ‘V for Vendetta‘.  Now Natalie is being celebrated for her dynamic portrayal in ‘Black Swan’, but I might be able to argue that was not her greatest performance

Here is an oldie but goodie….


“It’s Portman Motherf*&ker, Drink till I’m A Sick!!!!”

Talking Points Tuesdays – Lawrence O’Donnell destroys Bill O’Reilly….

Lawrence O’Donnell host of MSNBC’s The Last Word recently destroyed Bill O’Reilly for the BS he spews nightly on his FOX News show.

This is why I love O’Donnell and his style; he doesn’t pull any punches and he has the resume to back it up anyone who wants to step up.

O’Donnell in the video below goes right at “Billy Boy” with no hesitation…

“I know real Irish tough guys they don’t look and sound like you.  And none of them come from Long Island like you, and none of them go to work in makeup like you…. Anybody who knows real tough isn’t fool by you Bill.” – Lawrence O’Donnell

LMAO, Lawrence aka LOD is the TRUTH and he brings the fire every night!!

I can’t wait to see what Billy Boy’s response will be to O’Donnell; Bill O’Reilly is the big dog on the block when it comes to political talk shows on TV.  Will he (O’Reilly) even acknowledge LOD?  Or will O’Reilly treat O’Donnell like a low-end rapper trying to make a name for himself by attacking the likes of Jay-Z or Eminem….

Who knows, in the meantime enjoy “The Notorious” LOD get at Billy Boy

President Obama releases his 2012 Budget

With Pres Obama set to release his 2012 Budget on this Valentine’s Day I doubt he will receive much love from Republicans; especially in the House.  Obama’s 2012 Budget will propose $3.7 trillion in spending and $1.1 trillion in deficit reduction over the next 1o years.  Now with an overall National Deficit of $14 trillion, $1.1 trillion over the next 10 years doesn’t seem like much but it’s a start.  What’s lacking from the 2012 Budget are cuts to programs like Medicare, and Social Security.

Here are some other highlights from Obama’s 2012 Budget:

  • 2/3 of the money for the $1.1 trillion in deficit reductions over the next 10 years will come from program cuts and 1/3 of the money will come from tax hikes.  Well known programs to be cut are as follows; fewer subsidies for lower-income Americans for heating and cooling. And no more Pell grants for summer college.  Tax hikes will come from capping charitable deductions for wealthiest at 28% rate. Bush tax rates gone in 2013. Estate tax would rise back to 09 level
  • The 5-year spending freeze (at 2011 levels).
  • $78B in cuts over 5 years in the Pentagon budget

As I mentioned earlier this budget does nothing to tackle the entitlement spending like Medicare and the impending bankruptcy of Social Security; also what is missing is any mention of tax-reform.  The Obama Administration explained this by saying that cuts to Medicare, Social Security and Tax-reform are separate conversations.

Ummm, really???

We have to have these “conversations” soon, and right neither Republicans or Democrats seem willing to step forward and start that conversation.  The only one willing is Rand Paul, as I noted in a previous blog Paul’s ideas are definitely out of the box thinking for Washington but at least he is thinking.

We need to get serious and it needs to happen now!!

We will definitely see heated battles concerning Obama’s budget, but what good will that do if those battles don’t include cutting/reforming programs that carry the most weight in government spending (Defense, Healthcare, and Taxes).

With all that said, before we can move forward with the 2012 Budget we need to find out what is going to happen with the Debt Ceiling?  Some Republicans want to play a dangerous game by saying they will vote against raising the Debt Ceiling; if the ceiling is not raised the U.S. Government will default on its bills…

Knicks Chick goes in on Shawne Williams and other NBA news

So a couple of Fridays ago I wrote about my homey Knicks Chick and her love for the New York Knicks and everything NBA.  I decided that I will help spread her special NBA commentary by featuring her video blogs on It’s On Broadway.

You can also find her on Hoops Vibe as well as her YouTube page – The Knicks Chick

I will say this I think she missed an opportunity to get at Shawne Williams and D’Antonio aka Mr. Pringles some more; or maybe I missed that blog??  For example can someone explain to me how Shawne Williams gets so much burn?

Anyway, checkout the latest edition of Out Of Bounds….

For the record I have always loved Kevin Garnett and his tough playing style; reminds me of Charles “The Oakman” Oakley

By the way Knicks Chick, with baseball season starting up again can I get something a lil bigger than the big baseball reppin the NY Mets HAHA!!

Justice Clarence Thomas should recuse himself from any health care rulings

When U.S. District Judge Roger Vinson ruled that the Affordable Care Act’s provision requiring people to buy health insurance or face a tax penalty as unconstitutional; he setup the stage for the debate to taken to the Supreme Court.  Judge Vinson ruled the “individual mandate” unconstitutional, and without the mandate decided that the entire law could not be implemented.

This is not necessarily about Judge Vinson, but more about Justice Clarence Thomas and the role his wife Ginni Thomas  plays in the health care debates.  When this case reaches the Supreme Court will Justice Thomas recuse himself?  It is well-known that Thomas’ wife has worked for and supported several groups opposed to the Affordable Care Act aka Health Care Reform.  With that said I cannot see how Justice Thomas can be an unbiased; it is a nice thought that he can separate himself from his wife’s beliefs… but Ginni Thomas protests against health care reform is more like passion!

It is clear that Justice Thomas MUST do the right thing and take away any controversy in future rulings.

Of course I am not the only one to express their feelings on this subject….

Gotta love Rep Anthony Weiner (D-NY)

NY Knicks “Blue & Orange”, of course it had to happen!!

Once “Green & Yellow” dropped you knew it was only a matter of time before some one was going to do a remix for the Knicks.  Last weekend in Vegas I heard the version for the Lakers “Purp & Gold”, and I knew there was no way  that NYC would not be represented.


With that said, Let’s Go “Blue & Orange”

For right now I will ignore the shot that is taken at my NY Mets in this joint, THE METS WILL BE BACK!!!!

F-A-Natic Fridays – Congrats to Ray Allen!!

Thursday night (2/10/2011) Ray Allen aka Jesus Shuttlesworth became the All-Time NBA Leader in 3 pointers made (2,560).  He passed NBA great Reggie Miller in the 1st quarter against the LA Lakers; it’s a great accomplishment for a future Hall Of Famer.  Being a fan and Alum of Syracuse I know all too well the exploits of the great UConn player Ray Ray… as it seems like he has been hitting 3 pointers forever.

As a fan of the Cuse and the New York Knicks (2 teams Ray has killed over the years) I say Congratulations to Ray Allen!!

Checkout this cool tribute to Ray Allen put together by Vitaminwater

F-A-Natic Fridays – Marija “The Knicks Chick” Kero

I wanted to take a quick minute and give a shout out to one of the great fans of sports….

With the resurgence of the NY Knicks this season, there is no other fan who is enjoying this NBA season more than Marija Kero aka “The Knicks Chick”.  Now I consider myself a sports junkie, but I don’t know if I’m at the level of Ms Kero.  Her passion for the Knicks might be unmatched as all she wants is for Knicks to be good again and reclaim the glory of the 90s and 70s; but don’t let her good looks or her love for the Knicks fool you!

She is not one of those fans that will endlessly defend her team; if she doesn’t like something she will let it be known.  I am pretty sure if you go back and watch Knicks games from last season; you can probably hear her yelling “Pringles (her name for D’Antoni) you suck!” or “I hate you JJ (Jared Jeffries)!”.  Trust me, I witnessed some of this last season 1st hand and according to her that was a toned down version of her antics during games (she didn’t want to scare me).

But that’s not what makes Knicks Chick stand out from most fans…..

While other Knicks’ fans sit around either gloating or cursing after games; Knicks Chick takes to YouTube to express her feelings.  Her rants (and I mean that in a good way) are informative, hilarious,  and unforgiving.

Here is 1 example of her sharp analysis…


Because of commentary (and BBM faces) like that Marija was featured on NBA Access with Ahmad Rashad; soon after that Knicks Chick became a regular contributor to Hoops Vibe.  On Hoops Vibe she spits her hard-hitting commentary about anything and everything dealing with the NBA; without a doubt she is the true definition of a fan.

If you got a second check her out either on HoopsVibe.com, Twitter – @KnicksChick or on her YouTube page; http://www.youtube.com/user/TheKnicksChick#p/u/7/Wzm2jNvUmiI
