Nothing but death will keep me from watching the "Pitter Patter" of my heart, Oscar de la Hoya fight Floyd Mayweather Jr., this evening, and will be watching it with a bunch of my friends on Pay Per View at a friends house.

As much as I love my baby, Oscar de la Hoya, I predict he will lose to Mayweather by a decision!

Republicans, Democrats

To all who were so sweet and left their input to my question about the Presidential Debate question in my last post, thank you! I read you all very carefully, and thanks to YOU, I finally came to a conclusion.

Pat Buchanan, Bill O’Reilly, Ann Coulter, Shaun Hannity, Dick Morris, Chris Wallace, President Bush, and Fox News are also responsible for finding that there is no way in hell I'll be voting for a Republican, and I WILL NOT change my mind anymore!

From here on out, I will pay close attention to whatever Obama and Clinton have to say, and will either vote for Barak Obama, Hillary Clinton, or Al Gore if he runs.

you seem to think there are only two parties. Very depressing.

There's only one party
There's only one party. Democrats!

You should look into Ron Paul.

I plan on voting for Obama. he may be half honkey, but he is all donkey!

Not only for what he has to say
I'm paying close attention to him, also. Not only for what he has to say, but because he's a DOLL!! :o)

I tend to agree with you on how the fight will end. But I keep getting this good nagging feeling about some of the factors of Mayweather's fights. First of all, there's no way Mayweather won that Jose Luis Castillo fight from a while back and Castillo would never beat Oscar. The kind of trouble Mayweather had with Castillo will be repeated with Oscar.
Mayweather's speed is awesome, but he fought some much slower opponents, Oscar's speed is enough to hold some pace with Mayweather, and if he connects enough his power will be too much for Mayweather in opening rounds. Hopefully that left hook will be the punch that comes in too quick for Mayweather.
Oscar has 4 recorded losses, but let me break them down for you so you can see how thos elosses aren't that much of a factor in Oscar's abilities to win this fight.
His first loss to Trinidad was a joke. Oscar methodically tore Trinidad's game apart for more than half the fight. If anything Oscar beat himself by believing the judges would fairly score the fight on the basis of the majority rounds, but never doubt anything when Don King is co-promoting the fight.
Oscar should have pressed on in the later rounds and he would have won the fight. The judges gift-wrapped the win to an undeserving Trinidad.
Then there are the two losses to Mosley. The first loss was on a split decision that I gave Mosley a slight edge on. Legit loss but then there was Mosley-De La Hoya 2 and a bullshit unanimous decision that almost everyone who saw the fight believes is bullshit.
The only significant loss is the one he had against Hopkins. Oscar was outclassed in a weight division that he never should have gone into. He was so uncomfortable in that new weight.
Oscar is now sparring with his former opponent Mosley because Mosley is a chameleon who can mimic Mayweather's style. Mosley can match the speed and along with the help of his new trainer Freddie Roach I don't think Oscar has ever been as focused on a fight in his life.
Oscar needs to cut off the ring, because for all his bravado about beating Oscar's ass I think Mayweather's winning strategy will be all bob and weave, stick and jab ring dancing instead of toeing the line for an upfront in your face fight.
Mayweather is a very smart fighter but will tha tbe enough for tonight? The dumbest thing to do is to get under Oscar's skin. Mayorga and Julio Cesar Chavez did it and they were destroyed by Oscar's left hook.
When Oscar takes it personal and he puts himself on a mission to humble you, he tends to do just that.
Yeah I still think it's all in Mayweather's favor, but I won't count the Golden Boy out. A Ricardo Mayorga fight for Oscar is a lot better preparation than Zab Judah for Mayweather(who already lost to Carlos Baldomir)

The only danger Mayweather faces is that he has very sensitive hands, and if he hurts them, he’ll lose the fight. But I don’t believe this will happen. Mayweather doesn’t have that much of a powerful punch, and this is what Oscar is banking on, but then Mayweather is very fast and sleek. There’s no way Oscar can beat him because Mayweather is going to out point him with his speed, and punch him so many more times. Besides he rolls his shoulders and Oscar will not be able to catch him. Also, Oscar hasn’t fought for a long time, and that is going to cost him the fight because of ring rust.

When Oscar fought Trinidad, he found that Trinidad only had power in his left hand, and that’s why Trinidad was beatable, but Mayweather can hit with both hands, although his punch isn’t as powerful as Trinidad’s, but again, Mayweather has lots of speed.

Oscar’s big mistake with Trinidad was that he thought had already won the fight, and just coasted in the last rounds, not paying heed that Don King was the co-promoter of the fight, and for this he lost the fight.

You are right; Hopkins was a much bigger man than Oscar.

God! I love boxing!!

God does work in mysterious ways! YAY!

I also want Oscar to win, but he won't. :o(

Welcome to the fold my dear! Let us go forward and change the world, because there is no doubt in my mind that we can do it. It will be a long hard fight but we're up to the task!

Chris Wallace? I don't get that one.

In any case, cable news is down-market. I'm always amazed people actually depend on those outlets for information in chosing their masters.
May. 7th, 2007 08:33 pm (UTC)
Thanks for bringing it to my attention. I mistakenly assumed that Chris Wallace was a Republican because of the awful way he treated the love of my life, President Clinton, and because I see him all the time on Fox News.

I don't depend on cable news for chosing my presidential master, I depend on all of you! :o)
May. 5th, 2007 08:05 pm (UTC)
Chris Wallace is actually a Democrat :-)

But consider that just b/c the Reps have more "lightning rods" these days, doesn't mean there aren't any on the other side, and none of the "big three" Reps are anything like the the people mentioned above. Brownback, Thompson, those guys are more to the far right, but Romney, McCain and Giuliani are a bit closer to the middle.

Election's still a long way off. Look at the actions, not the words!!!

No sense repeating my earlier sentiments. Here are some new ones:

and will either vote for Barak Obama,

Policy-wise, he and I are night and day. I disagree with him on just about everything he stands for. On the plus side, he's got a really cool name. I can imagine his rallies. "Ba-rak! Ba-rak!"

Hillary Clinton,

Why? She's a pandering, self-serving poli-chicken.

or Al Gore if he runs.


By the way, I found a website a few minutes ago that you might be interested in:

These guys seem to be covering the candidates' positions on a number of major issues. Gun control is one of them. I don't know anything else about these guys.
May. 7th, 2007 08:29 pm (UTC)
Thanks for the link!

I'll still have to see why so many people don't like Hillary, but for now, I really like Obama.

I know one thing for sure, I do NOT like the Republicans at all!

I believe both Demo and Rep are trying to take away our guns! Besides, what good will our right to bear arms do, if a Republican wins in 2008, and continues shredding to pieces our Constitution?! :o(
May. 5th, 2007 10:59 pm (UTC)
I shall only say one thing and that is to make sure you have all your guns in one place so if a Democrat wins you will have an easy time turning them in when they become illeagle.

Ill be able to keep mine cause none are registered. THose who have registered their guns with the NRA will be the first to loose them cause the NRA's files will be confiscated. Just a feeling I have.

No matter how you vote, the fact that you are listening to what is being said, and plan to use your right to vote is what is truly important! I myself am hoping for more people to enter the race a bit later. but for now, I kinda like Guiliani. AT least until Fred Thompson joins the race. and please dont even ask about McCain. Both I and my brother served with him and we know him all too well to vote for him.

Umm Giuliani is more anti-gun than maybe even Hillary or Obama or at least equally.

I think John Edwards has some of the best ideas. However, because they made a big stink about his haircuts, he probably won't score big in the primaries. Shame. This country's all kind's of stupid, where good ideas can be undone with metrosexuality, but bad ideas and a former coke addiction can make you president as long as you know the right people
May. 7th, 2007 06:45 pm (UTC)
I have to be honest with you, but I was also very upset that he spent $400.00 on a hair cut when there are people starving in the world.

Hopefully, our next president will be money concious, not meddle with our Constitution, bring our soldiers back from Iraq, seriously attend to illegal immigration, and never experienced drugs in his past!

I have to say something. Don't get so hung up onthe party as much as what the individual has to say about issues. I am a social liberal but very conservative on issues dealing with crime and fiscal responsibility.

I'd gladly be a conservative if the psycho wingnuts and religious right formed their own party. I loved Colin Powell and was glad to see he wasn't blind to the fact that the GOP still has a long way to go to be more inclusive of something other than the "white nativism" they are oblivious to. I don't mean racism either which exists on both sides, but the unspoken feelign that you aren't truly american unless you act more like htem than the others in your own environment.
I am not going to vote by party but I tend to lean towards more of the Democratic candidates than the GOP ones. If any of GOP truly absolutely had the guts to admit what a piece of shit Bush was as president I would have a hard time with any of them.
It's hard for me to imagine anyone saying he was doing a good job with a straight face. I don't care how you vote each year, but as i have gone over his accomplishments in his administration I'd be hard-presse to find enough good to say about him.
Some of the excuses to counter what an asshat Bush is are "Can you imagine what it would be like if Gore or Kerry won"? That's just stupidity that is not an answer to anything.
It's not about a party it's about who is a whore to the party. Event he guy I like Obama is a bit of a Dem whore, but I want to see if he would have the guts to veer away from party dictates before I'd truly back him 100%.
