Tube heading breaking

Oh, my, my. Tubularsock has been so busy adding another story to The Tubularsock Underground Bunker in Oakland, CA overlooking Washington, D.C. that Tubularsock has let several interesting bullshit Maimed-Stream-Media-Tales pass by on their way to history.

I suppose you realize that when you add a story to an underground bunker you go down but the end result is up in the way you view it from the bottom floor. But enough about basic engineering and forward to the American fabrication of the world.

Now Tubularsock does admit that any game involved with balls should be outlawed but that thinking is very counter to world thinking. And Tubularsock feels that when it comes to football (American Style) the shape of the ball is not ball shaped. While the shape of the football (World  Style) is the proper shape of a ball as in all balls are in the shape of a ball EXCEPT the American football and its shape is just not ball shaped.

Which is the fundamental shape of American foreign policy in that we may be out of shape but we want the world to be in our image.

Which leads Tubularsock to the first order of business today, FIFA and its corruption. Wow, that was a slick segue if you ask Tubularsock.

Now we know Tubularsock is really on top of his game but even an imbecile has known that FIFA and its officials have been known for bribery, money laundering, fraud and are so corrupt that for years they have been taking under-the-table money on top-of-the-table.

If you don’t know, FIFA’s Central Committee is a rich old man’s club that does everything in secret so we’ll never know who gets what and how. It has always been corrupt and just now the U.S. has stepped in with arrests and indictments of FIFA officials in Zurich.

Just like the U.S. another “surge” with worthless results. It’s a bitch saving the “free” world!

Wonder why just now all this anti-corruption is happening? There are two pretty clear reasons. And neither are based on any high moral stance by the United States which lacks the capacity for ANY moral stance at all.

Side note: Tubularsock finds it interesting that the U.S. government can find the time and the money and the concern over corruption in soccer in the world federation but massive corruption in military contractors in Iraq and Afghanistan that has already shown to be overwhelming hardly gets a glance from the Justice Department. And speaking of massive . . . . Banking corruption is looked upon as too big to fail and EVEN WORSE the WAR CRIMINALS in our current and past leadership get to have a free ride! So it is Soccer that is the root of all evil?

The United States lost it’s bid for having the World Cup Show to RUSSIA and QATAR.

And gosh, Qatar is an American ally no matter if it’s a brutal dictatorship and got the 2022 World Cup Show.

That’s all good BUT RUSSIA got the 2018 World Cup …… ahh, there’s the rub!

And who was America’s honorary chairman for the U.S. bid committee, which promoted America as the best place to host the 2018 and 2022 World Cup events?

Bill Clinton!

And guess what? In 2014, the Qatar 2022 Supreme Committee, set up by the Qatar government to ensure a successful FIFA world cup, awarded the Clinton Foundation between $250,000 and $500,000; the State of Qatar donated between $1 million and $5 million to the Clinton Foundation.

Funny how that looks to Tubularsock. Bill Clinton is chairman of the U.S. bid committee which doesn’t get in the running but Qatar who doesn’t even know how to play soccer gets the bid to have the World Cup Soccer Event. And the Clinton Foundation makes off like bandits. If this was a fist fight could it be said that Bill threw the fight for monetary gain? You bet your sweet bippy!

Bill told NBC in a recent interview, “I don’t think there is anything sinister about trying to get wealthy people and countries that are seriously involved in development to spend their money wisely in a way that helps poor people and lifts them up.”

Funny thing here the workers on the Qatar World Cup building projects are primarily migrants from India, Bangladesh, and Nepal whose passports have been taken away and are forced to work in 106 degree temperature. With at least one worker dying on the job every two days. Is this what Bill means by “. . . helps poor people and lifts them up”? Maybe he’s talking about death and heaven.

But did the U.S. Justice Department only become “morally” concerned about FIFA’s corruption in order to attempt to keep Russia from hosting the 2018 World Cup?

Well like some, Senators Menendez and McCain, have called on the FIFA Congress to elect a new FIFA President that would deny Russia from hosting the 2018 World Cup.

And this makes this entire corruption moment seem like interesting timing. Doesn’t it?

Or perhaps the interest of the U.S. Justice Department that felt so compelled to take action on FIFA officials RIGHT NOW for corruption was due to the fact that there was a good chance that Israel was going to be suspended from the FIFA like South Africa was in the 1960’s for Israel’s Apartheid practices against Palestine.

Hmmm, interesting timing indeed.

Tubularsock DOES see a silver lining in all of this because in our dystopian world the U.S. didn’t carpet bomb Zurich in order to save us all from the soccer-terrorists who need to be eliminated “over-there” before we have to face them on our shores!

God Bless AmeriKKKa.
