A History Lesson

In 1846 Democratic president James K. Polk ordered American troops into the hotly contested border area between the Rio Grande and the Nueces rivers following some hostilities in the area. In doing so he asked Congress not to declare war, but to admit a state of war with Mexico already existed. Charging that shots had been fired on American soil, he rallied the patriotic fervor of the nation, which saw over 300,000 men enlist to fight the Mexicans (50,000 would be sent to modern day Texas in order to defeat the Mexicans).

A freshman representative would challenge Polk to prove the first shot had indeed been fired by Mexicans on American soil (a hotly contested issue at the time). President Polk ignored him. The local newspapers would compare him to Benedict Arnold for going against the obvious right of the United States of America to defend herself. The young representative claimed that to 'accept Polk's position without question was 'to allow the President to invade a neighboring nation...whenever he may choose to say he deems it necessary.' The Whig party (later to reorganize as the Republican party) he represented voted on a measure which called the war 'unecessarily and unconstitutionaly' initiated by the president.

Today, President Polk is considered a top ten president for his annexation of Texas (prior to the war) and his stern negotiations in victory, receiving reparations which would incude all of modern-day California, Nevada, Utah, most of Arizona, New Mexico, and Colorado, and a small portion of Wyoming (the Mexican Cession). The young representative is viewed by most as the Nation's greatest president, Abraham Lincoln.

Flags at Half Mast




I was amazed, shocked and, well I wont lie , filled with tears when I witnessed the flags across America were at half mast in honour of not many soldiers , but one mere soldier, one who has touched the nation beyond the realm of possibility .. A saddened nation doesnt mourn , but celebrates its dear fallen soldier ....

Donovan Mcnabb may lye idle on his couch and watch his Eagles fall for the season , but as legions and legions of fans around the nation hold him true in thier hearts , do the Eagles really lose???

Quoi? Quebec declared a "nation"

Quebec is going to be recognized as a nation within Canada. (Title link).

Where is Harper's strategy?

1980 referendum 1995 referendum 2001 push for the "Quebec Nation".
Is this some kind of "Get cake and eat it to plan?"
One minister resigns. The rest sign up. Bend over, and get on board.

Quebec gets a seat in the UN? Taiwan politicians flock to study French to get Quebec's support for joining th UN.

Quebec had plenty of prime ministers, is there more influence,power to be had. Ok, so a prime minister has to duke it out with political parties. The Bloc is growing in strength. Soothe old wounds and start a new. A progressive conservative idea ( "Quebec Nation "The Bloc's idea). All parties are lining up to support.

My ramblings are getting off track here.

How does recognizing Quebec as a nation within Canada benefit the other provinces?

Is granting the "Quebec Nation" status, like giving a huge lollipop to crying baby?

The Fighting Prairie Y'all

After reading Larry Thornberry's article, Cowboys and Turkeys, part of which talks about Tony Hillerman discussing the Indian / Native American moniker melee with...Indians / Native Americans, I was left pondering the obvious - When will Indianapolis, Indiana be renamed Native Americanapolis, Native Americana? and Why is the University of Indiana still allowed to compete in postseason play?

IU may be getting a pass, but Wikipedia lists 40 some-odd schools who were coerced or just decided to change their names from anything Indian related. Sometimes the change required only a space - Blackhawks to Black Hawks - or the change of one word - Redskins to RedHawks. Hawk was a popular fallback, showing up 11 times. But then, then, I saw Nebraska Wesleyan Plainsmen changed their name to the Prairie Wolves. What? Why?

Administrators at the university, formerly called the Plainsmen, thought the new name was more sensitive in regards to both gender and ethnicity.

Admittedly, it is more sensitive and inclusive, representing both sexes of wolves and I don't think that wolves have different ethnic groups, but what about species sensitivity? Shouldn't humans be upset for being deemed not good enough to act as a mascot? Don't think that the Lupine-American bloc won't be up in arms, howling about perpetuating the stereotype of wolves as big-fanged, aggressive, drooling sex fiends, either.

The solution to this (and everything else, just ask them) lies with the Chinese. When choosing the 2008 Olympic mascot and pondering "Human or animal? Human or animal?" they came up with the only truly egalitarian choice - both. (The) five little children...also embody the natural characteristics of four of China's most popular animals and the Olympic Flame (don't want to offend the elements). Sorta like a cuddly X-Kids.

Is this the Wang picture?


Between the stripes at the bottom of the picture it says "GQ Taiwan". Why would a baseball uniform be considered fashionable. Perhaps Big Gay Lance and Bread bought a lot of stock in mens fashion magazines. If that is true, you can expect to see some colorful hawaii jump suits on the runway soon.

Two Who Get It and One Who's Getting All Of It

From ESPN's LZ Granderson's interview with J.J. Redick - From pre-season penthouse to regular season outhouse - courtesy of a back injury - Redick talks about his exit from the spotlight.

The thing I think people sometimes misunderstand about athletes or actors
or singers is that because we're famous they think we're special," he says. "But
we're really not. We're just people trying to do the best we can, just like
them.


From Katherine Kersten's article in the StarTribune - The University of North Dakota has been granted an injunction so that they can continue to participate in, and host athletic events while using their mascot, the Fighting Sioux. Before you read the complete article, make a bet with yourself as to who the truly indignant are. Read Joe White Mountain's quote (Standing Rock Tribal Council committee member) for a hint.

"I asked them, 'What tribe do you belong to?' " he says. "Not one was a Sioux
Indian."

Our buddy, PJ, continues his encirclement of Soho Street with the opening of his newest place, Soho Street Wine & Jazz Cafe ( or Soho Cafe Street according to another mag as well as his own awning). Look for encirclement to be complete in early 2008 when D-Wayne retreats back to the land of The First Smokers. While PJ has not yet decided the theme of his next place, I've heard him mention a Jersey-style kimchi place as well as a family-style jello shot bar.

Thanksgivin' Football

Triple Header this year. Gotta love Thanksgiving. FuBar will have the last part of the Miami Detroit game at 5 pm , and Tampa - Dallas and Denver-KC games in their entirety, beginning at 6 pm.
On another note, I see the morons in charge of Fox have decided against the OJ book and TV interview, calling the idea "ill-conceived". Well, no shit, Sherlock. Did it really take Fox affiliates refusing to air the interview and general moral outrage to make them realize that? But I can see their point of view from a purely business aspect. The book would have sold like hotcakes and all kinds of idiots in North America would have been glued to their tv screens to see how the Juice did it. Excuse me, WOULD have done it, if it had been him. Which, of course, it wasn't.
On yet another note, check out the tv show The Boondocks. The comic strip in the Taipei Times is a series. Makes me laugh.
And couldn't let the post go by without sending my condolences to Gutted and Howie. Hope you didn't hurt anyone when you chucked your tv out the balcony window. Chin up, my makakas. They didn't have the groceries this year anyway.

Thanksgiving at the Mannings

I would have to guess that Peyton threw the Dallas game just so that Eli will feel slightly better at the family gathering.

Dad will probably make Eli run some passing drills after dinner though. Who could blame him?

IBAF-Taiwan




















In an attempt to get out readership up 200% I have entitled this the IBAF. I hope it works. Sorry readers if you have been mislead.

I attended the final game, saw some friends and ate my final Oldies Frank for the month. It wasn't a bad game, but the excitement came in the 11th and 12th innings. In the 11th, the Cubans hit a solo homerun. The photo with the blue hats shows the Cuban team clearing the bench to congratulate the batter. However, this celebration was a little bit like Lance in bed (not that I know, but I've heard rumours) premature. The Helan team sucked back a few bowls, re-focused their attention on the ball and tied the game.

Unfortunately, they may have smoked a few too many. The Cubans roared back with their blunted bats and rallied to get the bases loaded. Like one quick hit of the bong, a liner triple was drilled to the right field corner clearing the bases and ashing out the Nederlands team. The roach was savoured as was the moment and victory.

At 4:20 the following day, the Cuban team was set to depart from Taiwan's newly named airport. Although many of the team members were elsewhere, some could be seen selling their ball caps, jerseys and belts for small amounts of cash to the airport staff and some fans. The news reported you could get you a jersey with the authentic smell of Cuba for about $2000nt.

Some more of my favorite photos




Baseball






A wonderful week of baseball! A look at the other games which haven't been posted.

A bit out of order but to the top left, you Chang Tai Shan is up to bat. Not much luck in this game. But a wonderful game it was. Sunday afternoon, TPE vs. KOR with the Chinese team down four runs, a grand slam is cracked out of the park. This game would end in the 12th with a two run shot by TPE.

The evening before saw JPN and TPE play. A bit of a heartbreak loss for the TPE team as a two run shot was hit in the bottom of the 8th by JPN to take the win.

Tuesday afternoon saw the oversized Cubans match up against Japan. This would be my third game. The cubans are big.

Finally the game of the year for Taichungers as Wang Jian Ming would toss out the first pitch. Unfortunately this was the only good photo I was able to get. There was a lot of stir and his pitch happened faster than the blink of an eye. He came out, tossed and went back in with a hat tip to the crowd. But the game made up for that. An exciting game played by both sides. In this game I actually saw a stolen base, a balk, shaky double plays and a two run shot by Chang Tai Shan to win the game. In the forth inning a foul ball was hit in our direction and bounced off my seat. Unfortunately, I had an urge for an Oldies Frank. Peaky got the ball and Justin was on ESPN.

Stay tuned as the Cubans will face Chinese Taipei tonight in round 1 of the playoffs. More photos to come.

Commies Invade Muleshoe

Bread's informative post about Africa and Chinese involvement led me to do a little looking around and see how safe we were from the Red Chinese threat within our own borders. Not content with sucking up Africa's oil they now have their eyes on 1 billion pounds of Texas cow turd. This will be used to produce ethanol that mixed with gasoline will replace the equivalent of 2.4 million barrels of imported oil a year. Now, the company describes itself as "Dallas-based," but even a cursory examination of their web site reveals the truth. First, the name - Panda Ethanol. For Pete's sake! You can't even shoot a panda anywhere near the US. No "Dallas-based" company would ever think of using the word panda for the name of a company. They would use something more like Mesquite-Fired Ethanol or HANDGUN! Ethanol. Secondly, and as equally telling, their CEO graduated from UT in Austin! Why not just hoist up the red flag now? People of Muleshoe, do not stand idly by. Before you know it the world's largest muleshoe will be torn down and replaced by a civet vat and you'll be standing in line to eat 10,000 Year Old Cow Patties. Recall Lee Horsley now.

Let's remember to support the real democrats tonight as they take on the Caribbean commies tonight at the new ballpark. Here's my photo of the guy who will be leading the first wave.

Cold Marinated Bean Sprouts

This recipe is for the Commander, who professed a love for bean sprouts over a beer factory brew. I've made it several times and find it quite tasty, while it also satisfies my wife's urging to eat more veggies. The recipe is Ken Hom's, from his book Illustrated Chinese Cookery. An extremely good book that has sections covering its history, ingredients, equipment, techniques, menus as well as the requisite recipes, it sets the benchmark for Chinese cookbooks. He's the Smoky of Chinese cooking. Order it online or go to Cave's where I got mine several years ago.

Serves 4
450g (1 lb) fresh bean sprouts
2 fresh red or green chiles
3 tablespoons Chinese white rice vinegar or cider vinegar
2 tablespoons light soy sauce
2 tablespoons finely chopped fresh coriander (cilantro)
2 teaspoons finely chopped garlic
Trim and discard both ends of the bean sprout and put trimmed sprouts in a glass bowl ( he trims the sprouts for the sake of appearance - I prefer not to). Split chiles in half, remove seeds (if you're a girly man) and finely shred. Add it and other ingredients to the bean sprouts and mix well. Let it marinate for at least 2 to 3 hours, mixing it from time to time. When ready to serve, drain the bean sprouts and discard the marinade. He recommends using it as an appetizer or as a salad course with grilled meat or fish.

Looking Back on the Oracle of Montana

A year ago I wrote of a pending regional war in Africa. Clearly Darfur has spilled over into Chad, no big surprise. The real surprise is how quickly it seems to have affected the Central African Republic.

It looks like the Americans have given up on supporting the Khartoum government, at least superficially (as I predicted wouldn't happen). I'm not sure if that's good or bad for regional stability, but I find it intresting to note Ethiopian involvement in Somalia and the ramifications on Eritrean 'interests.' Long story short, the newfound friendship between Eritrea and the Sudan can mean nothing but trouble for Ethiopia, especially with an Islamicist regime installing itself in neighboring Somalia despite an Ethiopian military presence within Somalia's borders. This region is going to blow, and blow soon. What's left afterwards will be trouble for Europe, North America, and possibly East Asia.

The wild card will be Chinese pragmatism in regards to foreign policy. The Chinese have invested heavily within the Sudan in hopes of gaining access to the southern oil fields; regime change as the Americans want will not be acceptable. However, if the situation worsens (or when the situation worsens), nobody knows how strongly China is willing push to protect her own interests.

As a sidenote, I discount the Middle East getting too heavily involved, other than through jihadists. The governments will watch from the side (with the occasional inflamatory news report) and let Khartoum and Mogadishu sort things out.

Could this be the opportunity for Khadafi to insert himself into the African leadership role he has coveted? It's a scary world when we must turn our eyes to Khadafi for peace and hope.

P.S. Canadians be warned: Your beloved peacekeepers will be in the region to clean up the mess in ten years. Of course, it looks as if peacekeepers may already be heading there to join the African Union troops. Pragmatism by Khartoum?

Fashion Hex Relief

Good idea, wrong focus. Sadly enough, Korea's fashion police will soon be disbanded. What will become of these selfless but misguided and soon-to-be-unemployed civic heroes? Without a cogent plan for their dispersal, rogue countries and organizations will simply buy their talent and hold nations hostage with threats of mandatory corduroy and polyester leisure suits for all and a Casual Pink Jumpsuit Friday. Under the correct guidance, these men and women can stop forever the retina-damaging excesses of Rip Taylor, Boy George and Bread. I support Vermont's newly elected socialist senator, Bernie Sanders, call for the formation of the Hugh Beaumont Rapid Deployment Brigade. Armed with Flowbees and neckties they will be on 24 hour standby and can reach any point in the continental US as fast as their Greyhound Discovery Pass will allow. Do you really want this to be out on your street?

Don't relieve one's nature in the sea

Don't relieve your nature in the sea. Tsai Wen-hsing was arrested for defecating into the sea from aboard the Chuanlienhsing off the Pescadores. Article 18 of the Maritime Pollution Act stipulates anybody found to have " released waste into the sea" may be fined between NT$200,000 and NT$1million." Of course, the stool is waste.

But it doesn't pollute the sea. In fact, fish may like it. They feed on it. Coastguardsmen on their cutter sighted Tsai, but his ship was chugging farther away. They boarded the Chuanlienhsing and required Tsai to enact his crime, because pictures they took when they sighted him were all blurred to be of use as incriminating evidence. The poor Chinese was compelled to obey.

Every Vote Counts

In a crazy race which will determine the fate of Montana's lower house, the candidates have forged a tie. Laurel, just north of Billings, is a union town. The Billings area is a bit more red. And so it goes, a perfect split ahead of a recount. The only reason I mention this story is because a classmate of mine has a vested interest in the race, her father is Kayson Kerns, the Republican who would lose if the Governor gets to appoint. She is calling all the friends she has ever known to ensure they voted and chewing them out if they didn't.

round robin complete

with taipei's shocking victory over cuba last night, 4-3, and australia's loss to the

netherlands, the top 4 teams are: cuba and japan both at 6-1, netherlands at 5-2, and

taipei at 4-3. this earns the hosts the right to play cuba again on saturday night

in the

semis. japan will play the netherlands at 1pm... these games will be at the new

stadium.

losers' round will be played at the old one...

here's a link to the final round robin standings...

The baseball/ a post


The phone on the left can't handle a grounder from a one year old. The phone on the right takes a lickin' and keeps on getting weird Chinese messages. The messages are on the spicy side. I attempted to contact the sender... looks like there is a bit of a mix up. I would get the black phone fixed, but unfortunately for me it works fine whenever I am in a phone shop.
Cuba will play this weekend and I will make an effort to see them play. Ry can watch 26 innings a day. I will have to step up and paint my face for the Cuba game. I wonder if any of the nine bloggers on this blog will make it out to a game? Rye needs some support, he is getting tired of cursing at umpires by himself.

cubans wax italians


we spent a beautiful afternoon at the new ballpark yesterday...

the cubans handed it to the italians 9-0... italy got 2 of their 3 hits in the first inning, and they were infield ones to boot...the cubans pounded out 16...

Ivo ran around to all corners of the ballpark and had a fantastic time...

J-hole wore his camouflage in order to better blend in, after all there were 'commies' everywhere...

Pey-tra wore gingham and a bonnet, carted in a mess of noodles and I reckon left the keys to the chuckwagon with Cookie who was a-stirrin' the chili...

Dean-o fed the lion, the Singha Lion, and cursed out everyone, including the italian 2nd baseman who was reduced to tears in the 5th beneath an unrelenting verbal onslaught...

Nothing like a day at the ballpark...

the evening game saw the koreans take a 1-0 lead over japan into the bottom of the 9th only to blow it, losing 2-1... the korean ss booted an easy grounder from the lead off hitter to start things rolling...

the stadium remained ghostly empty... and the opening ceremonies last week had quotes like "...baseball is taiwan's national sport..." and "taichung is proud to host such an event..." yeah, well, other than games played by the home squad, the people of taichung have yet to step up and show any support or interest whatsoever...

today at 1:00 expect a large crowd for the taiwan - korea game...

tonight at 6:30 italy - australia! me and the j-hole are going up there on the chuckwagon with a keg and a still if anyone would like to join us...

italians smoke hosts

watching the italy-taiwan game last night on tv I noticed that the new stadium was nowhere near capacity. empty seats abounded. as the italian batting practice session wound down, it became emptier and emptier...

i've been planning to try my luck at getting tickets for the japan-taiwan game tonight at 6:30. anyone interested? kevlar? j-hole?

tickets go on sale at 4:30. i can't get there until 5:30.

if you haven't been out to the site, be forewarned that there doesn't seem to be any beer vendors within a reasonable distance of the stadium... BYOB...

i got to see the inside on wednesday...there are concession stands but they didn't appear to be operational yet...and i can't see them selling anything other than taiwan beer...

let's hope the home squad does a little better tonight. you gotta wonder since they got pecker slapped by the italians, how are they gonna fare against mighty japan?

oh and the cuba-italy game on saturday afternoon should be a good one too. i'll be carting the family up there for that one. see yall there... japan vs. korea tomorrow night too....

This day...


Glory Be, Hallejueah! Finally, that dumbass of a secretary of defense finally took the fall for an inept government. After the Republicans got their butts handed to them by the American people, somebody is paying the price. Let's hope they fix the mess.
The Giants are rocking, bring on Da Bears. Nice to see a good team on top of the NFC East and equally nice to see the Eagles and the stinkin' Cowboys trailing. (sorry, usahole, but i do love my New York Football Giants. all is good. If i ever get to Lubbock, god help me, I will stop in and have a beer.)
Frenchie and Pimp Daddy, sorry to tell you, but the Eagles just ain't that good. I know you will defend them to the bitter end, but they SUCK!! And i must say, i feel really bad about that, really i do. No, really, it's true. I wish they could have at least put up a fight for the division title.
The Hole is finally over the bitter loss to the usurpers from U of Texas, well, sorta. He still blames the officials. That's ok. When you lose, you bitch.
For anyone interested, there may be a group heading out to the new stadium to see Cooba play Italy on Saturday afternoon, get to the ball park around noon. It's at Chung De a few minutes past Sung Ju. Just drive down Chung De. You will see it on your left.
Here's a HOWIGATI. And luckily, it's not a pic of J-Hole. Don't think I can take another one of those.

Don't Quit Your Day Job

Donovan McNabb has just launched his own line of clothing.

"I've always wanted clothing that was casual and comfortable, but had a more refined look and feel," McNabb said.
Good to know that he could work that into his bye week.
"This is very near and dear to me," McNabb said. "I took a lot of pride in the design, the comfort level and the look."

While models strutted down a makeshift runway inside the RBK Concept Store on South Street, McNabb described the clothes they wore with intimate detail. He seemed to know as much about materials and textures as he does cover-2 defenses.
But don't worry Eagle's fans, he didn't lose the last three games straight because he was working on design ideas during practice instead of getting the playbook down:
"Every game, there were opportunities to make plays as a team and I ask myself, `What could I have done better?"' McNabb said. "For example, should I have used fleece instead of knit for the inner linings of my vests, or did the lines on the hoodie push the urban look too far?"
The line of clothing is called "Super 5" apparently for the number of times McNabb has built up the hopes of Philly fans only to dash them to pieces later.





I assume PJ and the Pimp have already pre-ordered their shipments.

Roman on TV

Roman the mask maker was on "Travel and Living" Ch.21. They were doing a show on Taichung artists. He did a really good job. It looked like he has a store, perhaps it is his studio. They also had the graffitti guy who sticks Hendrix and Einstien everywhere, he is an Asian named Brent from England. I had some tech problem so I didn't get the video. Maybe i will check the channel again sometime...
