I blame George W. Bush, his father George H.W.. and the Republicon Lord & Savior “Ronny” Reagan for everything.
Those greedy, lying sociopaths conned half of America into believing that deeply and permanently cutting taxes for corporations and the top 2% will somehow magically trickle down onto the the rest of society in the form of prosperity. This is basic supply-side economics, but is commonly known as “trickle-down, voodoo economics.” After 30 years of total failure, an ever-widening wealth disparity, a rapidly eroding middle-class, and disappearing social mobility, we now know that it always was 100% pure B.S.
Economics 101: Supply-side economics places the tax burden on the middle-and-lower working classes and leads to their gradual demise — and ultimately to the failure of society. Examples are found in what we see in third-world countries made up of about 2% “haves” and 98% “have nots.” Strong, robust economies are based on consumer-driven demand-side economics! This means that the middle-and-lower working classes make a decent enough living to buy computers, TVs, new cars and houses; have plenty of cash in pocket; and constantly spend enough money, throughout all markets and industries, to drive an all-around healthy and thriving economy.
The truth, however painful it may be for Republicons and conservatives to hear, must be told. And that’s why I’m here, my friends.Posted June 11, 2013 2:15 am

I blame George W. Bush for the ant wars…Posted June 10, 2013 9:15 pm
Hey Gonzo, did you know like humans, ants wage war?
Ants are the only animal besides humans which wage war in organized batallions, against other organized opponents. Like humans, ants wage war to capture territory and food resources from other ant colonies. Sometimes ant wars lead to the total defeat of an opponent and the survivors are captured and held as slaves.
Of course, war in itself may not be a great example of intelligence. But the organization, planning and coordination required to wage war is the product of intelligence.
In contrast to the war waging behaviour of many ant colonies, some ant species settle their difference in single combat between champions chosen by each colony. Bert Holldobler, in an article entitled Tournaments and Slavery in a Desert Ant, noted that a species of desert ant conducts tournaments “in which hundreds of ants perform highly stereotyped displayfights”. The losing ant colony is then enslaved…Posted June 10, 2013 9:08 pm

Intelligent Ants Part 2:
Ants Farm and Cultivate Mushrooms
Ants are the only animal besides humans that farms food. All other creatures hunt or harvest their food where they find it and are dependent on the whims of nature, and climate for their survival. For example, wolves are smart, and they will exhibit cooperation and skill in hunting for food. But wolves do not capture deer and breed them. Deer will forage for grasses and other food, but of course they have no thought of sowing grass seeds to ensure a plentiful supply of foraging crops. In fact, not one animal besides man and ants has ever thought to keep their prey in captivity or to farm plants in order to feed themselves in the future. Even intelligent animals like wolves lack the foresight to plan beyond meeting their immediate needs.
Ants, like humans, farm plants and raise cattle. Sounds preposterous. It’s true.
There are species of ants that collect leaves and take them to specially constructed chambers within their colonies where they grow fungus on the decomposing leaves. The fungus is then eaten by the ants.
The growing of the fungus requires a great deal of planning and forethought: an appropriate chamber must be constructed, the right leaves must be collected, waste must be removed so as not to choke the growing fungus beds, and the leaves must be seeded with the fungus spores. The spores do no grow naturally in throughout the ant colony; the ants must collect the spores and bring them to the leaves.
Fungus farming is an example of intelligence and creativity. Other animals and insects would recognize the food value of fungus growing on leaves if they came across it in the wild. But no other animal or insect, besides humans, would understand that by contaminating a new leaf with the fungus spore, it will result in more food later. This shows intelligence, understanding and the ability to think ahead.
The fact that ants farm is an achievement that sets them apart from the rest of the animal and insect kingdoms. What is even more amazing is that ants have been doing this for millions of years. Humans did not learn to farm until around 5 or 6,000 years ago. Prior to that, humans behaved as hunter gatherers just like the rest of the animal kingdom.
Ants Farm Other Insects
But ants don’t just farm, they raise and keep other insects for food, just like humans raise cattle. Many species of ants will domesticate aphids and act like shepherds by taking the aphids to feed on plants, while protecting them from other insect predators. The ants will then “milk” the aphids by squeezing their abdomens and causing some digested plant juice to be released into the mouths of the ants which will then share this nutritious fluid with the rest of the colony.
The ants behaviour in keeping ants closely parallels that of human shepherds and cattle breeders: ants will take the aphids to different pastures, they will guard them against predators, and they will harvest them.
The ants’ behaviour in this regard is markedly different from that of other animals or insects. Even though wolves display intelligence similar to that of dogs, they lack the foresight to control their instincts and avoid killing their prey in order to get more food in the long run. If a wolf gets his teeth on a rabbit, or a deer, it will kill it and eat it on the spot. No wolf would ever capture the animal, tend to its needs, protect it from other predators and then take food from it without killing it (for example milking a cow) in order to reuse this food resource.
The only animals that do this are humans and ants. And once again ants beat us to it: they have been farming aphids for millions of years. Humans discovered animal husbandry about 6,000 years ago.Posted June 10, 2013 8:09 pm

Cotto took a knee because according to Cotto his focus was disrupted by visions of domestic comfort awaiting him at home. not to mention his chubby bed-buddy. Shane finished Margarito. Cotto barely dared challenge the leftovers and even then he resorted to last-minute antics to try and derail Margarito’s focus and concentration. otherwise, you could already see Cotto’s thoughts drifting to the comforts of home at which point the Arum-approved ring-doctor pulled the plug on what was shaping up to be aNother BeatDown of Cotto. Rafa Marquez completes a trilogy+1 v. Vasquez consisting of three consecutive FOYs and it was JuanMono who retired him?

te tumbo – When your opponent is a VERY good inside fighter, WHY on earth would you want to fight him on the inside?? Lara simply HAD to stay away from that type of fight, it’s called a game-plan dude, that game-plan called for NO inside fighting!Lara threw and moved, which is EXACTLY what he had to do, Angulo DID what he had to do, which was get in close and bang away! NOTHING wrong with sticking to your game-plan.Posted June 10, 2013 5:29 pm
Btw, i’m on record as posting that Angulo looked TERRIBLE last Saturday night. like a slo-mo stop-motion animation statue. TriniDud never looked that stiff or plodding in his attack. he was simply and consistently bedeviled and neutralized by any opponent with an effective jab. anyway, Angulo v. Lara should’ve been a replay of Shane outspeeding and outpunching Margarito. instead, Lara’s was constantly backpedaling and desperately pot-shotting his way out of and into trouble. the fight-fans in our section (including some Lara and female fans) were incredulous that despite how terrible Angulo looked, he was winning the fight(?!?). we also all agreed that Lara would be utterly DEMOLISHED in a fight v. Margarito. of course, i didn’t need his miracle-win v. Angulo to form that conclusion. Lara is a skilled boxer-puncher but he’s no great ring-warrior.Posted June 10, 2013 4:54 pm
MORGAN, stop trying to make this about you only being Puerto Rican. who gives a F(!?). nobody here based on the responses, which are ZERO. you ESB-Boricuas have turned into a dry-snitching flock of hissy-pissy hens always clucking about how you’re being mistreated by the “Mexicans”, which essentially amounts to pointing out that Cotto is a glorified 154lb gatekeeper; that Lopez is damaged goods; that Dulorme and Rosado are NOT the second-coming of TriniDud; and not ignoring that Cheato TriniDud was caught with illegal handwraps after which his once concussive punching power evaporated into thin air. unless you consider Cherifi and Mayorga to be elite middleweight opponents. instead of responding with your catty-piss, try a boxing-related response that FACTually refutes those assertions instead of pissin and moaning about the “Mexicans” bullying your poor Puerto Ricans around. nobody cares and it isn’t revive PR Boxing, which is currently on life-support unLess you can identify the PR counterparts of Canelo, Mares, and Mikey Garcia?Posted June 10, 2013 4:41 pm

Anyone have an update on Angulo’s condition? Was it a confirmed break of his orbital bone? I’ve not seen any reports yet. Hope he’s OK.Posted June 10, 2013 2:48 pm
Bottom line is Angulo did quit, he turned his back… I don’ care what happened but he surely quit… Now that’s not saying hes not tough cause he is but he definatly wanted no more…. Many fighters have fought through different adversities and have wanted to continue… He turned he back for a “time out” except this isn’t football or basketball…Posted June 10, 2013 12:01 pm
Mexicans fight fans brag about beating Ricans and so on… No offense but you should beat Rican fighters their over 3 billion of you guys compared to a tiny island yet we still have beaten many of your best… So if theres is 1 good or great fighter out of P.R. and you guys have an army then yes eventually after sending many off to get decapitated by fighters like Benitez, Camacho, Tito, Cotto, Juanma, Etc. youll eventually beat the rican… Just like the Mexicution Pacman how many Mexicans did he bloody, destroy and lead to their retirements before Marquez got off a desperation possibly juiced up punch? Its pretty pathetic… I don’t hear much about the Argentinians or Mayweather cause no matter how many Mexican soldiers you send they keep getting their asses handed to them….Posted June 10, 2013 11:57 am
“I bet Angulo felt/heard something pop in his eye/skull. He was done at that point. I don’t blame him either.” – Agree with Tomato Can. Angulo took three direct shots on his eye and only he knows the pain it caused. I’m sure he felt a break and not a standard hard shot, which he’s proven over the years he has no problem taking. Hope he’s ok. Nobody should call him a quitter, especially dudes who never fought themselves, because they just don’t know what he went through.Posted June 10, 2013 11:55 am
All this Canelo would smoke Lara talk is hilarious… Your talking about the same Canelo who did not look so great against pillow fisted Trout… Canelo might get to Lara more often is true but the guy got up from 2 hooks that would have normally put many to sleep. I think Angulo hits harder than Canelo and 2nd your forgetiing Lara hits back and Canelo doesn’t have no where near the chin of Angulo so I wouldn’t talk to soon about “Canelo smoking Lara” Cause Lara looks way better than Trout…Posted June 10, 2013 11:48 am
I don’t mind fighters that plod around get hit and then hit back… My problem is when they are Mexicans its ok… But when Trinidad did it “he was nothing according to Mexican fight fans” I enjoy those fighters but I rather see a balance even more…Posted June 10, 2013 11:36 am
This was a great fight. I never thouht Angulo would get to Lara at all, but he did. Lara came back from two heavy knockdowns to win. He deserves a shot at one of the big names. Tough break, though, for Angulo with the injury. If, indeed, the orbit of his eye was broken, it will be tough to recover from that. Too bad, because he, too, deserves to make some big money.Posted June 10, 2013 11:12 am

Intelligent Ants part 1:
Is it possible that ants are intelligent? The idea may seem preposterous to some – after all, how can something so small, with the brain the size of a pin head be smart? The very thought of bugs and insects being intelligent seems like an insult to us humans. After all, aren’t we the dominant species. The only species that builds cities, uses tools, farms, and demonstrates the capacity to plan and think?
But if we look closer, we can see that ants exhibit many of the characteristics and behaviours that we associate with intelligence and civilization. In fact, if ants did not exist on Earth but we encountered them on, for example, Mars I am sure that we would wonder if we had encountered an intelligent alien race that builds cities, farms, raises animals, and organizes itself into a complex society complete with social ranks such as nobles, soldiers, workers and slaves. I am sure that we would conclude that these aliens were in fact intelligent.
So let’s explore the alien world of ants right here on Earth and see whether they are intelligent or not.
The Ant City – Fungus Gardens and Urban Planning
Ants Build Cities
I know what you are thinking, ant hills aren’t cities. They’re, well, ant hills. But did you know that large ant hills contain complex ventilation systems that remove carbon dioxide and bring in fresh air, or that they have the equivalent of hundreds of miles of sewers that drain the ant waste into special chambers were the waste is recycled? Did you know that ant cities have a an incredibly complex transportation system including highways? Or that each ant city can hold millions of ants.
Sounds incredible, and for the most part it is difficult to imagine the engineering marvel which is an ant city because most of it is underground. In fact, if we were the size of an ant, most of an ant city would be the equivalent of three miles underground.Posted June 10, 2013 12:47 am

Even after being knockdown twice, I still believe Lara was winning the fight. Also, it wasn’t Lara’s thumb that made Angulo quit the fight, but the accumulation of punches and a flush left that landed on his already tender eye area. And yes, the referee did stop the fight, but El Perro had already signaled he didn’t want to continue…so yes, he quit. However, I don’t blame him for quitting. Better to quit and be labeled as a quitter, than to play macho and be labeled as a one-eye “perro”.Posted June 9, 2013 9:58 pm

Personally, I enjoy the styles that Margarito & Angulo bring to the ring. I guess I’m a barbarian. They are slow, plodding, & tough. They fight the only way possibly can, given their talents. So what’s wrong with that? They make for good fights with the likes of the more athletically gifted. Anyway, I always tune in when one of these 2 guys are rumbling.Posted June 9, 2013 3:38 pm
Lara proved that sticking to a working gameplan will pay off in the end, even if road blocks are met. Despite being knocked down twice, he never panic and kept his composer .Lopez did the opposite and paid for it. Instead of boxing, he wanted to prove his machismo the moment he took a good shot and paid the price.Posted June 9, 2013 3:25 pm
Lara ain’t no Rigondeaux. He’s got footwork but every 10 seconds he stops, puts his hands up and takes 5 punches. Canelo would make short work of him. Angulo is a B or C level fighter and he gave Lara all he could handle.Posted June 9, 2013 3:08 pm

Public Enemy, I seem to recal the hematoma starting prior to the 10th round and remember that orbital hematoma are a significant symptom orbital bone fracture. Thus, it “may” have been the thumb that made Angulo turn around. On the other hand, it wasnt cowardly for Angulo to turn around but rather very wise and/or survival reflexiv for Angulo to avoid further fracture and hematoma. For instance, pressure increase in the periorbital region due to retrobulbar hematoma can cause significant injury of the neurovascular structures with eventual loss of vision, a proptotic globe, or sever nerve damage, in which case emergency decompression should be considered. If a retrobulbar hematoma in the cooperative patient results in blindness, the time window to release the intraorbital pressure is limited to around one hour. Transcutaneous transseptal incisions may help evacuate the hematoma and release the periorbital pressure. Alternative methods such as transconjunctival pressure release and/or lateral canthotomy and inferior cantholysis should be considered according to patient condition. Fractures in the periorbital and sinus region should not blow their nose in order to avoid additional emphysema due to acute pressure rise. Should sneezing occur, maintaining an open mouth posture minimizes increasing intranasal/intrasinus pressure. Bony dislocations in these anatomical areas are more likely to be associated with traumatic optic nerve lesions and/or subsequent optic nerve disorders. Ocular muscle entrapped with an orbital floor fracture (trap-door phenomenon) and this may not be seen with x-rays but requires urgent freeing of the muscle to prevent necrosis of the incarcerated muscle.Posted June 9, 2013 2:02 pm

Angulo looked TERRIBLE and was still winning the bout. Lara was wilting and fading from the 4th round on. Angulo’s slow and plodding style was essentially doing all the work for both of them. if Cotto was smart he’d immediately target Lara as his first assignment as 154lb gatekeeper. IMO, Cotto would K’imTFO. aside from a rematch v. Lara, Angulo is done. i’ve seen him fight live before and this version had zero zip or snap to his punches. whether it’s making weight, he’s shot, i don’t know, but he looked like a soggy statue out there plodding after a a damp noodle. Canelo’s got nothing to fear from these two and Cotto should $weep-up ASAP. easy money if he moves quickly.Posted June 9, 2013 1:41 pm

Public enemy, slow motion showed it clearly but just go to a boxing gym a while and you’ll find out about thumbs.

Thirdly, I aint even Mexican and my immediate family are fulochombocholo.Posted June 9, 2013 12:46 pm
I wouldn’t say Angulo was winning, I would say he evened up the fight with the knock downs and may have had a one point lead on some cards. The judge that had Angulo up by 3 rounds was a homer. But the momentum was shifting, and Angulo put in the work to the body. He just took too many shots to the head. So, we can say that Lara’s constant shots to the head out did, Angulo’s good work to the body.Posted June 9, 2013 12:35 pm
It was a great fight and I had Lara winning my one round, great fight would love to see a rematchPosted June 9, 2013 12:33 pm

It was a great fight. Angulo was winning but got caught with punches that caused the freak eye injury. I think Angulo was the better fighter but very unlucky.Fair play to Lara though. He never gave up and it paid off.Posted June 9, 2013 12:30 pm
Tomato Can – Why would Angulo complain about the stoppage? it was stopped because Angulo turned his back and said NO MAS!! clearly seen on the replay.. He quit.. once you turn your back and wave off the fight you QUIT and that’s exactly what he did…Posted June 9, 2013 12:26 pm
Angulo didn’t complain about the stoppage. Actually he took a thumb from an attached thumb glove, and two consecutive punches on the eye, that was getting popped all night. Angulo was done.Posted June 9, 2013 12:24 pm

Public enemy, Anglu got thumbed in the eye that already had a huge hematoma. He simply turned around anfd the ref stopped it. I have seen almost all fighters quickly turn around after getting butted or thumbed or bit, etc…Posted June 9, 2013 12:20 pm
Public enemy….did pac wake up from his Marquez induced sleep yet? Or did u forget about the best face-plant ive ever seen. Remind me what country marquez is from again?Posted June 9, 2013 12:18 pm
Public Enemy, because I thought ESB had seen the light–that it really disgusts good and sensible fans to see fighter’s styles, cultures, religion, etc..constantly insulted. Anyway, why do you feel the need to go down to their level?Posted June 9, 2013 12:15 pm
Murdeman – I’m just fkn with these sore losers.. I know how badly they take losing.. did you notice the Mexican Crowd booing both Maidana and Lara after they were announced the winners.. what where these idiots thinking? Just wait until Floyd lights up Canelos Culito aka ASS.. you will see some seriously fk’d up racial sht from them.. it’s their Style… LOLPosted June 9, 2013 12:15 pm
@ public enemy! – well damn partner why dont you tell me how you really fell about mexican boxers! Lol. Whats up w you friend? U good?Posted June 9, 2013 12:13 pm
MARACHO THE BORACHO NACHO
No sea mamoaw… You boys got raped… lolPosted June 9, 2013 12:06 pm
ANGULO TOOK IT IN THE CULO
Dayum Angulo got pummeled… The excuse “I got thumbed” lmao Did you get thumbed all thos other res? Or is your head so big that a fist looks like a thumb to you? lmaoPosted June 9, 2013 12:04 pm
Maracho – what exactly am I posting that is so bad you feel they have to be deleted? You may not like what I’m posting but the facts are the facts.. The Mexican Crowd was booing both Maidana and Lara after their clear cut wins.. and Angulo did pull a Cowardly No Mas.. and Maidana did put much heavier Lopez on Shaky Chihuahua legs… the truth sometimes hurts but it’s still the truth..Posted June 9, 2013 12:03 pm
Oh and for a change, please delete Public Enemas posts and quit deleting minePosted June 9, 2013 11:54 am
ESB cleaned out that lounge of trolls so now please clean up the likes of the poster directly below.Posted June 9, 2013 11:51 am
excellant fightPosted June 9, 2013 11:45 am
Wow, looking at the post fight photo of Angulo, it appears that Lara put on the finishing touches for Angulo’s up coming “it’s so easy a caveman can do it” Gieko commercials.Posted June 9, 2013 11:17 am
Public Enemy go away no one cares what you write your like a cancer that strikes boxing web sitesPosted June 9, 2013 11:09 am
Angulo does a Canelo and balloons up to 174+lbs and then is directed to land Kidney and liver shots!!! Nice.. typical South of the border tactics.. Hopefully they checked his Wraps and took blood for Blood tests… we all know that Neanderthal has been juicin for Years…Posted June 9, 2013 10:44 am
Once Floyd beats Canelo then Canelo can finally fight Lara who he has been avoiding for over a year…Posted June 9, 2013 10:41 am
So, it looks like Canelo isn’t the only 154 pound fighter ballooning up to 170 + pounds on fight night.Posted June 9, 2013 10:40 am
Lara, seems to have a very hard time fighting on the inside. That’s why Molina gave him problems, and he looked at his worse on the inside last night. But Angulo isn’t someone you want to stand and trade with, not to mention that he weighed in at 174 on fight night to I think Lara’s 164…Posted June 9, 2013 10:40 am
What a fight. I expected Lara to keep Angulo on the outside and to stay off the ropes. When he did that Angulo didn’t have much of a shot. But I give Angulo a lot of props for taking the repeated hard strait rights to the head, and closing the gap. I credit Lara for taking a lot of body punishment, and getting up from the shots that put him down, especially the second knock down. I’m not sure why one would question his chin after that, Angulo can crack, and that left hook was solid. If anything you can question the fact that Lara went strait back with his hands down, and got caught… As for Angulo quitting, I can’t blame him, his eye blew up, he probably heard something pop in his eye, and said that’s enough of this…. All and all, that’s was one of the better fights this year.Posted June 9, 2013 10:35 am
Angulo, like Margo, is just a punching bag. His game plan has always being to breakdown his opponent with non-stop “uncontrolled” shots hoping to get lucky, while taking a lot of punishment in return. Sadly, is the way most Mexicans fighters are taught to fight…being “macho”, take lots of punishment and if plan “A” fails, stick with it anyway. It makes for exciting fights, but leads for a short fighter’s career and that may be the case for Angulo.
Lara, on the hand, shows what boxing should be all about; hit, try not to get hit and do your best to conserve energy. Even after being knocked down twice, he was able to get up and still had plenty left to make Angulo miss, while landing his punches on Angulo’s face.
I don’t think Cotto would want to fight this guy in September; Lara could end Cotto’s career if the fight does takes place.Posted June 9, 2013 10:15 am
Hitting in the liver is legal, hitting the kidneys is not. Anything above and in the front of the body (chest, sides, etc.) is legal.Posted June 9, 2013 9:52 am
think about lebedev fighting for several rounds with a lot worse than angulo. but either way they should stop the fights when such injuries happens, it can really damage their whole career and lifePosted June 9, 2013 9:32 am
Jay Rock – Yeap, they clearly said that.. no different then saying “Keep hitting him low or Keep hitting him behind the head” Face it, they’re just dirty fighters at their Cores.. Lara kept protecting his Body with his Arms but Angulo would throw those shots just behind his Body to hit the Kidneys and Liver.. Clearly following his Corners direction.. Clearly something they practice..Posted June 9, 2013 9:24 am
Why are Mexican Boxers and their Boxing Fans such Sore losers?? Why Booo Lara and Maidana???? It’s not like they didn’t break down and beat their Mexican Opponents??? they’ll never change.. and they wonder why no body likes them???Posted June 9, 2013 9:21 am
You right they did say thatPosted June 9, 2013 9:21 am
If you listen to Angulos Corner in the early rounds they told him “Keep hitting him with Liver and Kidney shots, he’s tiring” LOL, aren’t those illegal in Boxing?? fkn Cheating bastards.. and Angulo did land alot of those shots just behind the Body of Lara… Where the Ref could not see it.. another South of the Border Dirty Trick…Posted June 9, 2013 9:08 am
I have to admit that was a good card minus the 1st fightPosted June 9, 2013 8:59 am
Bad night for the sht talkin Chihuahuas.. Angulo pulls a No Mas after Cuban Lara Breaks his Face.. Just like Paquiao Broke MargaCheatos face.. Steriods will only take you so far in Boxing.. You can’t be a face first plodding pinyatta your entire bogus career… After the few Hundred Shots Lara Landed to the Neanderthals face you knew that Egg was going to Crack.. then the Sore losers tried to say it was a Thumb??? LOL, Thumbless Gloves and You don’t break someones orbital Bone with a Phantom Thumb.. and the Boooing Chihuahua Crowd showed their true Colors when Lara was announced the Winner… NicePosted June 9, 2013 8:57 am
