Simply Frustrated

Ok today I am simply frustrated....

The Raiders spend millions of dollars on every cast off from here to Timbuktu, but fail to reach a long term agreement with one of the best Corners in the game and number on Corner on your team is just stupid.  And beofre all the haters pile on and point out Hall, Walker etc.  I understand those signings, I don't think we had to pay as much but they were needed signings.

One thing that really frustrates me is when Hollywood releases a movie like Swing Vote.  Ok I know it is fantasy, but come on it is impossible.  And to be honest I think Hollywood is trying push an agenda with this movie.  They want America to forget the Electoral College.  And that is the reason this movie is stupid.  No single person can dec ide an election, unless they are a memeber of the electoral college.  And even then this wouldn't happen.  So Hollywood releases a movie that ignores we are a Republic and not a Democracy. 

And here is another frustrating thing.. Living in California we have some of the highest gas prices in the Nation.  Part of the reason is we have not built a new oil refinery in years.  Everyone wants them, but just like a prison not in their neighborhood.  The latest example is Chevron applying to expand thier richmond refinery.  And what happens... people in Richmond are protesting against it.  They say it will poision the environment.  They ignore the fact that it wil ladd 1200 much needed jobs to the richmond community. It will increase our gas processing ability which will increase the supply and drop the cost, and they ignore that a more modern facility will have more modern processing methods and might acutally be more environmentally friendly.

Oh and Barnon Davis.. let me get this off my chest.. you scr3w3d the Warriors and us fans.  You knew you were leaving and you knew they could have used that 10 million dollar exemption to make a trade and/or they could have drafted a point guard if you said you were opting out.  But you kept lying.......you said you were coming back.  If you truly appreciated all we had done for you and the Warriors had done for you, you would have told them you were opting out.

And another thing on the Boom Dizzle deal... why isn't that tampering by the Clippers.  I am sorry but if an agent talks to a club about their possible desire to sign a client of his that is under contract but could opt out.. How is that not tampering?  I am sure his name was never mentioned.  But Mafia Dons have been convicted of murder with out ever saying to kill the person.  If it looks like tampering , smells like tampering then it is tampering.  the Clippers should have gotten what teh Wolves got a few years ago.  Lostteh player back to free Agency and two thier next number ones sent to the Warriors.  I am sure people will say I am bitter... that this is just sour grapes, but I really want to know how this could not have been considered tampering.  Heck we banned the Black Soxs and they were found innocent.

Okay fire away.....
