Yay or Nay on ‘Teddy Goalsevelt’ Being the Face of US Soccer in Brazil?

First off the name is great. It’s not everyday you can incorporate a soccer term into the name of an American president from the early 20th century. Secondly, the outfit is great. Love the Jumanji aspect of it. Really anytime you have the chance to dress like a character from Jumanji you have to take it. That’s not a costume or soccer rule; that’s a life rule. Thirdly, this guy looks strikingly similar to Teddy Roosevelt. Have we ruled out that this guy is a Teddy Roosevelt impersonator who stumbled into the stadium and the internet just took over from there? Seems like an American internet-y thing to do: find a fan dressed like Teddy Roosevelt and turn him into an American soccer icon. My only reservation is that the US didn’t win last night. The whole point of being “the face” of something is that you’re a good luck charm. Good luck charms don’t let their team lose in the 94th minute of a World Cup game. If we beat/draw against Germany then I’m sold on Teddy Goalsevelt. If we lose I want his head on a Brazilian spike.

If Anyone Can Change the Laws of the Constitution, it’s Arnold Schwarzenegger

(Source) “Action star and former California Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger has been lobbying for support to change the law to allow him to run for president in 2016, according to the New York Post’s Page Six.

We’re told Ahnold has been openly talking about his political ambitions while in New York to promote his new movie with Sylvester Stallone, “Escape Plan.”

One source said: “Schwarzenegger has been talking openly about working on getting the constitutional rules changed so he can run for president in 2016. He is ready to file legal paperwork to challenge the rules.”

Arnie was born in Austria, and the US Constitution prevents foreign-born citizens from holding the nation’s top job. Any amendment to the Constitution must be approved by two-thirds majority in the House and the Senate.”

If there’s one person in this world that can change constitutional law and become the first foreign president, it’s Arnold. Mr. Olympia, marries a Kennedy, enormous movie star, governor of California. Pretty impressive resume. If we’re all being honest with ourselves, the government we have in place right now isn’t doing so hot. Maybe Arnold is the change we need. North Korea has nuclear weapons? Agree to meet with Kim Jong Un wearing the leather jacket and sunglasses from Terminator as an intimidation tactic. Putin wants to play around? I think that calls for the loin cloth/headband look from Conan the Barbarian (sword optional). Now the USA is feared by our opponents, and we regain our position as a world superpower. Arnold probably abolishes all steroid laws in sports so they’re fun to watch again, too. Win, win, win. If a bad actor can be President, imagine what an American action hero would be able to accomplish. Arnold in 2020.

US Will Interrogate Terror Suspect on Warship in the Middle of the Ocean anddd He’s Dead

United States interrogators who specialize in so-called high value targets will question a suspected al Qaeda operative aboard an American warship without reading him his rights, U.S. officials told NBC News on Monday.

The suspect, Abu Anas al-Libi, was whisked off the streets of the Libyan capital of Tripoli over the weekend. He will be taken to the United States to stand trial in the 1998 bombings of the American embassies in Kenya and Tanzania, the officials said.

Al-Libi will be in U.S. military custody for several more days, perhaps a few weeks, a senior administration official told NBC News.

The interrogation will be conducted by a team including representatives of the CIA, the FBI and the military aboard the USS San Antonio, an amphibious helicopter carrier in the Mediterranean Sea, the U.S. officials said.

Well Abu Anas al-Libi, I can’t say it’s been a pleasure. One of the most terrifying things in the world has to be knowing you’re going to be interrogated by the US military. At the very least, some of these terrorists (undeservingly) have their rights protected and are questioned in a humane manner. Looks like Abu here isn’t going to get that same treatment. No reading of his rights. No safe houses. Send him on a warship into the middle of the Mediterranean and “question” his ass. Without getting too political here, anyone who decides it’s ok to start blowing places up should be treated like this. Have fun in hell Abu.
