Natural laws of superiority

There's an established school of thought in this country that politically conservative white American males are naturally superior in every respect to females, non-whites, liberals, and other nationalities. These beliefs are primarily held by conservative white American men, who get extremely pissy when they aren't allowed to make all the decisions.

Super Bowl 49

Somehow I managed to get through the entire 2014 football season without watching a single NFL game. I considered watching the playoff games, but tossed that idea after discovering that so many of them were being shown in prime time. It ultimately came down to the Super Bowl or nothing.

So, the Patriots and the Seattle Seahawks met in the big game this afternoon. I don't have a favorite NFL team anymore, but in this matchup, I was rooting for New England. I watched most of the first half, then switched channels to avoid the ridiculous fucking halftime extravaganza. By the time I went back to the game, the Seahawks were leading 24-21 in the 4th quarter, but the Patriots were on offense with plenty of time to at least tie the score at 24-24.

New England got the touchdown instead to lead 28-24. Seattle then moved into position to win the game in the final minute, but the Pats got a game-saving interception (similar to the one the Aggies used to beat Alabama in 2012) and ran out the last 20 seconds or so. That last Seattle pass was hard to understand, all factors considered.

I stopped watching Super Bowls because so many of the games were boring, and the teams I pulled for usually lost. After today, I may reevaluate.

What God Wants

Hucklebuck, one of the Republican stars in the 2008 election, is oozing his way back into the spotlight as a potential candidate in 2016. He's a living reminder that the most dangerous people on earth are the ones who claim they have a mandate to perform God's will.
