Cumberlands_KYUPSET IN THE TOP 20 – The unranked UNIVERSITY OF THE CUMBERLANDS PATRIOTS hosted the number 17 CAMPBELLSVILLE UNIVERSITY TIGERS.

obama callousBarack Obama truly is garbage. Not only did this squirrely, wormy little man wait until he was DONE with his golfing vacation before visiting flood-ravaged Louisiana but when the delicate-minded child was pressed a little about his callous attitude toward the human suffering he was ignoring all that time this alleged human being ACTUALLY, REALLY said “I’m out in five months.”

What a scumbag! I know he bubbled and gurgled up from the cesspool of Chicago politics but this is a new low even for him. I guess if there’s a crisis on the week before Little Barry leaves office he’ll just shrug and say “That’s the new crook’s worry.”

Hillary CLinton scrunched face

You’d think Hillary Clinton would have sent some of her extorted money to help out, especially after how she destroyed Haiti.

Yeah, we get it, Barack, you’re even slimier than George W Bush. You have secured the title Worst President In American History. You clinched it long ago. Talk about running up the score. (I figured maybe a sports metaphor might register in the sack of fluids that passes for Obama’s brain.)  

AND … Continue reading

Pictured: Hillary “Bugsy” Clinton greeting foreign dignitaries and bloated rich pigs as Secretary of State

Hillary “No Billionaire Left Behind” Clinton told a nonexistent source here at Balladeer’s Blog that Donald Trump’s appeal to black voters made her very angry. The defiant presidential candidate had this to say:  

“I want black voters to get this through their heads – WE DEMOCRATS OWN YOU! We owned your asses when you were slaves on our plantations and we own your asses now! Not one damn Republican ever owned a plantation so STOP this flirtation with other candidates.

“We Democrats have given the black working class FIVE DECADES of condescension and meaningless slogans and I can promise you five MORE decades of condescension and meaningless slogans! We Democrats have the illegal immigrant vote cornered and with more of those future Democrats pouring across our southern border on a daily basis we won’t NEED you ungrateful super-predators in order to win elections in the near future. You think about that.” Continue reading

Ragnar loves his peeps, especially his Mom – my sister Rosemary

Regular readers of Balladeer’s Blog are familiar with my sister Rosemary’s dog Ragnar. Since he’s a Terrier he offered to give his expert opinion on the football helmets used by college teams with Terrier names.

wofford terriers helmetSchool: Wofford College 

Team Name: Terriers

Ragnar Says: Wofford hasn’t used this particular helmet design since the late 1980s. They’ve been using incredibly boring BLANK helmets instead. Now what kind of message does that send?  

Highland ScottiesSchool: Highland College

Team Name: Scotties

Ragnar Says: How can you not love this helmet? That handsome fellow is wearing his game face but still conveys what lovable and irresistable scamps we Terriers are. Continue reading

… BUT NAMES WILL NEVER HURT ME (Game Show) Liberals and Conservatives try to shame contestants into silence by calling them “babykillers” if they are pro-choice on abortion and calling them “racists” if they are pro-choice on Muhammad cartoons.

ALL AMERICAN HISTORY SHOW (Non-Fiction) America’s Left-Wing Archie Bunkers from the “academic” (LMFAO) world explain how America caused the previous ice age, the Black Plague, the capitalist system, the Crusades ,etc. Reasonable people who call in to point out America didn’t even exist as a nation yet for most of those events will be rudely shouted down.  Continue reading

Blood Beach

Blood Beach

In the middle 1980s/ Way down on Level 31 …

Balladeer’s Blog continues its examination of this neglected cult show from the 1980s. 

EPISODE ORIGINALLY BROADCAST: Saturday February 22nd, 1986 from 10:30pm to 1:00am.

SERIAL: Before showing and mocking the movie machine-gun toting Randy Clower and Richard Malmos, as members of the fictional Film Vault Corps (“the few, the proud, the sarcastic”) showed and mocked a chapter of the Republic Serial Radar Men from the Moon (1952).

Texas 27 Film Vault posterFILM VAULT LORE: Our Film Vault Technicians First Class would pull the usual Movie Host duties like providing background info on the films and serials, and would also do comedy sketches centered around their fictional Film Vault Corps before and after commercials. They protected their duty station from menaces like giant rats, cellumites and other threats.

That duty station – Level 31 Core 27 of the Film Vault System was accessed via an industrial park behind KDFI Channel 27’s headquarters off Highway 183 near Dallas. The show was directed by Karl Newman, who often good-naturedly bemoaned Randy and Richard’s tendency to ad-lib. Sometimes in print interviews Newman would joke that if they used a script they would need far too many takes for Clower and Malmos to read their lines right, hence the ad-libbing.

THE MOVIE: Blood Beach (1980) was one of Continue reading
