O's enjoying stellar season despite key injuries
How have the Orioles, who are 63-47 without Matt Wieters and 32-22 without Manny Machado, been able to move on? For starters, there's the incredible season of Nelson Cruz, who has 36 homers and 90 RBIs. But there's a lot more to the first-place club than that.

Miscues mount as O's denied series sweep of Twins
Poor defense saddled Kevin Gausman with a hard-luck loss despite seven strikeouts in 7 1/3 innings. The O's missed a chance to sweep the last-place Twins with a 6-4 loss in front of 33,156 on Monday.

Headline Potpourri #34
Filed under: — Frederick @ 10:44 pm

Musician Kid Rock says he is embarrassed to be a Republican. Maybe most Republicans are embarrassed that Kid Rock is a Republican.

It is heralded in celebration that requiring Virginia abortion clinics to abide by hospital hygiene standards will protect the lives of WOMENNNNN. The morality rates for infants entering such facilities will no doubt remain abysmal.

I think I may need some of the drugs candidates for the town council are on. From the enthusiasm expressed in each of their profiles in the local newspaper, it doesn’t even sound like the same city. Most gush how they deliberately picked this municipality. If I had not literally been conceived in this town and lived here my entire life, there is no way in Ghenna I’d pick it to live in.

That is certainly a money-making scam where “digitally remastered” episodes of Star Trek: The Next Generation are being shown in movie theaters. Some are duped into thinking these are entirely new productions. My brother turned to me and asked if I was going to go see it. I told him no, even though it was “The Best Of Both Worlds”, usually considered the best of the series. I saw it nearly 25 years ago (and so many times since then I can probably quote of reasonable approximation of the dialogue when watching it). I remember back when, from a worldview standpoint if the conflict depicted actually took place in real life, most would route for the victory of the Enterprise before these Transhumanists rose to prominence literally aspiring to become members of the Borg collective.

Why tip toe around verbally acknowledging that the limbs of innocents were blown off and mutilated in the Boston Marathon terrorist attack? Is that done to protect the victims or to prevent the facade of multiculturalism from collapsing?

Obama says those responsible for the Boston Marathon bombing will feel the full weight of the United States. I guess those fighter jets being given to the Egyptians are quite heavy.

In the future, liberals will no doubt equate those complaining about Tax Day with the human scumbags that attacked Boston.

So I guess the Boston Marathon bombing is the result of what happens when pacifist quiltmaking grandmothers form an alliance with cloistered Bingo playing nuns.

Following Pearl Harbor, wonder if journalists sat around trying to hypothesize scenarios for the attackers being anything other than the Japanese?

The cover of the April 22, 2013 issue of New York Magazine asserts that “Andrew Cuomo may be the shrewdest American politician since LBJ.” Should that be taken as a warning to presidential candidates that they shouldn’t consider the New York governor as a running mate if they hope to make it through their term of office alive?

It is claimed that a greater number of vets are coming back mentally scarred from the Wars on Terror than from previous conflicts such as World War II. Or is it rather society didn’t care as much about psychology and emotions back then with the shattered deemed at fault if they could not move beyond such trauma?

Barney Frank insists that we should thank liberals for the government spending that allowed for a prompt response to the Boston Marathon Bombing. So does that balance out with the lax immigration standards that have allowed violent undesirables to flood across the borders or the establishment of an educational system reluctant to label as wrong a considerable number of behavioral deviancies?

Following the Boston Marathon Bombing, liberals were quick to take to the airwaves counseling as to the necessity of a strong government in times of such public emergency. However, most of the programs, policies, and agencies these statists are eager to finance have little to do with preventing or responding to a terrorist attack.

How do we know the existence of other bombs wasn’t denied simply to prevent widespread panic? How long until government operatives start threatening those insisting they saw additional devices the way those were threatened insisting there was a third Oklahoma City Bomber?

ABC News has labeled the search for the Boston Marathon Bomber as a “21st century investigation”. They’ve got that right. Do you think in decades past that the intellectual elites would have postulated elaborate scenarios to finger anyone but the likely foreign perpetrators or devise justification as to why we should thank these destructive subversives for attempting to destroy the American way of life?

So what if the ban on public movement is never lifted in Boston? And what legal protections are in place to prevent an at will employer from using your failure to show up to work during such a crisis as an excuse to terminate your position?

As police go from house to house searching for the Boston Marathon Bombing suspect, will they also be gathering intelligence regarding infractions and violations on the part of the homeowners. It’s a valid question. For if you call the police regarding a complaint with a neighbor or to report suspicious activity, you also get your name filtered through the system for potential warrants and the like. So you better really stop to consider whether complying with “See Something, Say Something” is worth the effort.

Bet acolytes of the New World Order are watching with rapt attention this ban on public movement in Boston, studying it intensely just how long they can spook the masses into compliance of staying indoors.

A candidate running for the DC city council claims pot should be decriminalized since possess it can prevent offenders from ever finding a decent job. There are plenty that have never used marijuana that can’t find decent jobs these days either.

In the coming years, will the victims of the Boston terrorist attack have their access to medical treatment curtailed by Obama like every other American?

If New York City raises the legal smoking age to 21, why should those younger than that in that jurisdiction be required to comply with jury duty?

Under Obamacare, the scumbag terrorist will probably get better medical treatment than the victims.

It is claimed that the Boston Marathon bombers were not particularly devout as Muslims. Does that mean their victims are somehow less dead or that, instead of an entire leg being blown off, they only end up losing a toe or two?

Doctors are warning against the so-called “Cinnamon Challenge”. This dare occurs when a child or a teen attempts to swallow a spoonful of sugar without water in under a minute. This foolhardy act can result in a medical emergency such as choking, vomiting, or even collapsing a lung. How long until consumers, as in the case of common decongestants, are required to show a photo ID in order to purchase this product and have their named added to yet an additional government database?

The 2001 edition of an academic literary journal has finally been published in 2013. And I get mocked for how far behind I get in posting some of my columns. The subject of the long-awaited edition is “Food Theory”. That certainly sounds like some pretentious leftwing swill.

Journalist Bob Woodward insists that the Boston Marathon bombing wasn’t that big of an event. Yet when the Obama administration insinuated Woodward would regret criticizing the President, one would have thought journalists were going to be loaded up on boxcars and sent to reeducation camps.

Just think how many other residents of foreign origins on welfare and leeching off of the American system would be willing to blow you to smithereens and are probably actively conspiring to do so.

A discussion on 4/24/13 edition of WMAL’s morning show considered whether or not it is proper for parents to pay children for good grades. Fundamentally, shouldn’t this be for each family to work out for themselves without the opinion of outsiders carrying much weight one way or the other? What’s so wrong for education to be incentivized quantifiably? Those opposed to this economic exchange with the context of one of life’s closest relationships are often at their heart the most avowed adversaries of capitalism and the free market. Often, those opposed to parents providing some kind of tangible motivation encouraging academic achievement insist knowledge ought to be its own reward. But even if knowledge does nothing more than position you to see what frauds most people are and to be able to sneer down your nose at the duped condescendingly, what’s the point of acquiring knowledge if not for some kind of advantage?

Instructive. In the name of “market fairness”, traditional retailers want sales taxes applied to online transactions rather than having taxes on the offline transactions reduced.

A fuss is being made that Tamerlan Tsarnaev listened to Alex Jones. Would as much fuss be raised if terrorists had regularly listened to CNN or especially MSNBC? More importantly, should concerns be raised to what extent Al Jazeera has infiltrated the Democratic Party through the purchase of Al Gore’s Current TV?

In an article titled “What If We Never Run Out Of Oil” published in the May 2013 issue of the Atlantic Monthly, science writer Charles C. Mann longs for a world where America is dependent upon authoritarian Third World regimes for its energy needs and where all but the elite (like himself, I suppose) endure lives of deprivation.

A Chicago Area elementary school teacher was suspended for showing his students an assortment of home and garden tools such as a wrench, pliers, and a screwdriver. The educator of endangering his students and charged with possessing, carrying, storing, or using a weapon. But one has to wonder if the teacher is being punished for encouraging young minds towards useful occupations and careers that will liberate these pupils from lives of government dependence.

Unless the organization is in league with the effort on the part of Vatican elites to undermine America, wouldn’t the Knights of Columbus’ resources be better spent sending books written in English to libraries rather than in Spanish?

Apparently terrorist is one of those jobs Americans won’t take that we need to let immigrants into the country for.

Congress is considering a flu tax to be assessed on vaccinations for the infamous respiratory infection. Is this about raising revenue or about down the road castigating and possibly even punishing as tax cheats those refusing to submit to the inoculation?

Washington Post columnist Eugene Robinson claims that conservatives don’t love freedom. Though said primarily in regards to the uprising in Egypt, conservatives aren’t the ones seeking to control what Americans can eat or what kinds of light bulbs we can use. Robinson concludes, “These conservatives are arguing that the world’s 1.2 billion Muslims cannot be trusted to govern themselves.” Where have they proven that they can without the situation degenerating into violence? Don’t come crying to conservatives when these revolutionary regimes start to murder gays and deny women basic opportunities.

Obama has warned his daughters that, if they get a tattoo, he and Michelle will get the same tattoo wherever the daughters do and publicize the event on Youtube. The President is to be commended for such an effort at parenting that would prompt his children to carefully contemplate such a life altering decision. But why is it that their bodies aren’t their’s to do with as they please when it comes to tattoos but apparently are when it comes to abortion?

If gay men are aroused by naked men and a gay athlete is allowed to shower with other male players, why can’t heterosexual athletes shower with the female cheerleaders?

Technically, isn’t it in our national interest to just let both scumbag sides go at each other in Syria?

What proof is there that NBA player Jason Collins is really gay? How do we not know that this isn’t a publicity stunt so that an aging has-been of declining aptitude can make a transition to the lucrative speaking circuit rather than to late-night gas station attendant?

Obama says no one should go bankrupt if they get sick. However, with insurance premiums predicted to rise between 50 to 100%, he apparently has few qualms about bankrupting the healthy.

Redheads aren’t especially valued by society. In Britian, it was nearly categorized as one of the conditions over which one could justifiably terminate a pregnancy. So if an NBA player admitted to an overwhelming attraction to redheads, would the media and even the governmental establishment come out applauding the individual for publicly admitting to this quirky affinity?

A marketing email distributed by WorldNetDaily was titled with the following subject line: “Don’t be the only house without a flag this Memorial Day.” So should mass conformity and the herd mentality be the primary motivations Americans hoist these ensigns on patriotic occasions? I enjoy the season between Memorial Day and Independence Day as the time of year that I wear my flag tie collection. However, those choosing not to display the colors, so long as they are not conspicuously going out of their way to draw attention to how anti-American they are, should not be default have the eye of suspicion and interrogation turned upon them.

In response to an inquiry, Obama’s Press Secretary Jay Carney remarked that the events surrounding Benghazi were a long time ago. Yet we are constantly reminded of the deprivations of slavery and Jim Crow like they were last week.

An associate learned that someone on public assistance got an $1800 per month apartment for $180. The mother of this state dependent then informed my associate that welfare isn’t what it’s cracked up to be, lamenting that somehow her progeny actually deserved more than the rent and other assorted assistance she was receiving for no other reason than failing to curb the reproductive impulse. Neither is having nearly one third of your own salary confiscated to in part finance lives of such indolence all that it’s cracked up to be either.

Shutdown Corner NFL Power Rankings: Post-preseason changes (Shutdown Corner)
The NFL regular season officially kicks off on Thursday when Green Bay travels to Seattle to take on the defending Super Bowl champion Seahawks. Shutdown Corner will be previewing everything to come all week, capped off by our awards and Super Bowl predictions on Thursday. Here are the post-preseason power rankings, updating the initial rankings from four weeks ago, and will be otherwise known as "How could I have known the Bears defense was still going to be this bad?" Chicago (seventh in the initial rankings) looked flat out putrid against Seattle in their third preseason game, when the starters play the most. The Bears didn't look all that great in the second preseason game at home against Jacksonville either. You'd think that a defense which signed ends Lamarr Houton, Jared Allen and Willie Young, drafted tackles Ego Ferguson and Will Sutton and cornerback Kyle Fuller, and got linebackers D.J. Williams and Lance Briggs back from injury would be better than last season's horrible unit. It definitely didn't look that way. [ Yahoo Sports Fantasy Football: Sign up and join a league today! ] That raises the tough question of how to weigh the preseason. The Bears weren't using a full defensive game plan. So are they that bad? Is the Buccaneers offensive line that shaky? Is the Bills offense that bad? Is the Giants offense ever going to score? Will young quarterbacks like Blake Bortles look as good in the regular season when teams actually blitz? Is there anything to make of the 49ers' preseason struggles? It's hard to evaluate because the games are meaningless. For now, the Bears have to move down a bit until their defense shows something. Other teams might find themselves bumped up or down a spot or two in our final rankings before the seasons starts (and the "last week" rankings this time are where the teams ranked before the preseason ): 32. Jacksonville Jaguars (Last week: 32) Bortles looks great. I think the only reason he's not starting this week is because the Jaguars boxed themselves into a corner in May by saying he wouldn't and now they feel they have to stick to it. Bortles is clearly their best option right now.

Bengals get through camp without setbacks (The Associated Press)
The rest of the Cincinnati Bengals were starting practice on the rain-softened grass fields Monday afternoon. Receiver Marvin Jones was headed in the opposite direction, walking down the paved path toward the trainer's room, slowed by a protective white boot on his left foot. The defending AFC North champions didn't make it through training camp unscathed. Jones is one of the few regulars missing as Cincinnati gets ready for its opener on Sunday in Baltimore.

Colts face daunting challenge to protect Luck (The Associated Press)
Andrew Luck and A.Q. Shipley started getting reacquainted at Monday's practice. While this isn't how the Colts envisioned opening the season Sunday at Denver, plugging in yet another potential new starter at center, injuries have left them with no choice. ''Going through today, taking every snap with the first group out there, he was pretty much flawless,'' coach Chuck Pagano said. ''It's not easy, but we can help him on our end.'' The Colts need all the help they can get.

NFL Preview Week: Which teams have the toughest first four games? (Shutdown Corner)
The NFL regular season officially kicks off on Thursday when Green Bay travels to Seattle to take on the defending Super Bowl champion Seahawks. Shutdown Corner will be previewing everything to come all week, capped off by our awards and Super Bowl predictions on Thursday. You can’t earn or lose a playoff spot in the first month, but you don’t want to dig a deep hole you’ll spend the last three months of the season trying to get out of. Ask the Steelers and Giants. Both teams were popular playoff picks last year, but Pittsburgh started 0-4 and the Giants started 0-6. It didn’t matter that Pittsburgh won six of its last eight or New York won seven of its last 10. Neither one made the playoffs because of the slow starts. Remember, all 16 games count the same, so the ones starting this week have the same weight in the standings as the ones in the final weeks. These teams have the toughest (and easiest) first four game stretches to start the season:

NFL Preview Week: 12 second-year players ready to break out (Shutdown Corner)
Coaches often say that the biggest growth in an NFL player occurs between the first and second season. Rookie confusion can lead to second-year clarity and a sense of being unencumbered. In this rush-to-judgment league, it's easy to forget last year's draft class. But here are some of the second-year players who might be ready to remind everyone just how good they still are: Cleveland Browns pass rusher Barkevious Mingo — When you listen to him talk this preseason, the words "comfortable" and "confident" are used a lot. That's because Mingo, who was always seen as a work in progress entering the league, now has his body and mind properly shaped to be an impact player. The Browns will have a strong top three edge rushers with Paul Kruger, Jabaal Sheard and Mingo and can rotate them and keep them fresh. Mingo likely will be an open-side rusher (the offense's left side) and will be his best to use quickness and length to distract and disrupt quarterbacks. He had three of his five sacks in his first three NFL games but wore down. Now, in Year 2, Mingo should have the stamina to put up double digits in that category.

49er Ray McDonald accused of domestic violence (The Associated Press)
San Francisco 49ers defensive tackle Ray McDonald was arrested early Sunday on felony domestic violence charges after officers responded to a home in an upscale neighborhood, San Jose police said. Sgt. Heather Randol, a police spokeswoman, declined to discuss the circumstances that led to McDonald's arrest, saying only that officers had probable cause to take him into custody. ''I'm a good-hearted person.'' NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell announced tougher penalties this past week for players accused of domestic violence. ''The 49ers organization is aware of the recent reports regarding Ray McDonald and we take such matters seriously,'' general manager Trent Baalke said in a statement.

National Football League roundup (Reuters)
(The Sports Xchange) - San Francisco 49ers defensive tackle Ray McDonald was arrested and charged with felony domestic violence early Sunday morning. The Sacramento Bee reported that McDonald was booked by San Jose police at 5:30 a.m. Sunday for "inflicting injury on a spouse or cohabitant". He is scheduled to appear in court on Sept. 15, the day after the 49ers play a Sunday Night Football game against the Chicago Bears in Santa Clara. NFL commissioner Roger Goodell announced last week that the new punishment for those involved in domestic violence disputes would be six weeks for first-time offenders and a second offense would carry a lifetime ban.

Dolphins add 2 players, tweaking 53-man roster (The Associated Press)
Going with undrafted players is clearly not too risky for the Miami Dolphins. The Dolphins have added two more players who never got drafted, making moves Sunday to sign safety Brandian Ross and cornerback Sammy Seamster off waivers. He spent 2011 on Green Bay's practice squad as an undrafted free agent from Youngstown State. Seamster, an undrafted rookie out of Middle Tennessee State, was waived Saturday by Baltimore.

49ers' McDonald arrested for domestic violence (AFP)
San José (United States) (AFP) - National Football League veteran Ray McDonald was arrested early Sunday morning on charges of domestic violence. Law enforcement officials said the San Francisco 49er defensive end was booked in Santa Clara County jail for "inflicting injury on a spouse or cohabitant." McDonald was questioned and released after posting bail. The Sacramento Bee newspaper reported that McDonald was involved in an altercation with his pregnant fiancee while having a birthday party at his home.

Colts claim Shipley, announce practice squad (The Associated Press)
INDIANAPOLIS (AP) -- The Indianapolis Colts have claimed center A.Q. Shipley off waivers and started filling out their 10-man practice squad Sunday.

Michael Flacco among 22 players cut by Chargers (The Associated Press)
