    JFK Conspiracy Theories

    Author Administrator

    Two conspiracy theorists die and go to heaven. St. Peter tells them that Heaven is a place of all knowledge, so they can each ask him one question and he will reveal the answer to them. The first one says "Who killed John F. Kennedy?" St. Peter says "Lee Harvey Oswald." The other says "Who was he working with?" St. Peter says "He acted alone." The two of them look at each other and say "Wow! The coverup is bigger than we thought!" But seriously, what keeps this stuff going? Some would say the evidence. Other would say mental illness. I myself am unsure, and I have a hard time really focusing on this one as I didn't live through it. This article is pretty much a starting point for me and a note to self. Steve, debunk this one.

    As with any story, it is hard to say what happened unless you were there yourself. So why do I feel the need to post an article defending Richie Incognito? Because I can recognize a good snow job when I see one, and there is a blizzard coming from Jonathan Martin and company on this deal. Now to be fair, I am well aware that I am in the minority opinion on this one. Chances are if you are reading this you already have an opinion on this topic. Either I am preaching to the choir or I am dealing with a skeptic who wants to get a good chuckle at a brainwashed Dolphins fan defending the indefensible. So while I typically take the approach of building a good case, let me lay the best logical argument I have on you to kick this thing off.

    Don't Drink The Tea

    Scott Brown, Chris Christie, Marco Rubio, and Rick Snyder. What do these guys have in common? If you are a tea party member, then you already know the answer. Rick Snyder accepted the Medicare expansion for his state. Marco Rubio tried to tackle immigration reform. Scott Brown... who am I kidding? Like they need a reason? Heck, Chris Christie hugged Obama, let's throw him under the Tea Party Express. These are all candidates once endorsed by the Tea Party who have found themselves on the outs with the same group.  Now, with another midterm election looming around the corner, it appears Mitch McConnell has made the Tea Party Hit List as well. But before you guys get too far into this, would you kindly allow me to present you with some simple logic?

    If you think political talk radio is a brutal place, you should try sports talk radio. In the world of news talk, you have a biased hosed with a political agenda attempting to spin current events to make you see them his way. In the world of sports talk, you largely have a field of minds so jammed with statistics and dates that they are unable to form a point of view on anything other than a simple Vegas line, let alone manage to try to find a way to spin the event for the mindless masses who tune it. This can make listening to channels like Mad Dog Radio on Sirius and XM Radio an exercise in frustration. Yet it is an exercise that I perform almost daily, and occasionally I call in to try to straighten some of these guys out. My latest beef? The New York Knicks.

  • Abortion: Leopards Vs Hyenas

    Author Administrator

    One of the major drawbacks of being a blogger who has opinions that don't always fit the mainstream of either political party is that, after awhile, the party faithful tend to tune you out. Truth be told, I tend to get more responses from the left than from the right when I post my articles to facebook. On the issue of abortion, I am a guy who was once in the pro life political camp until my views evolved (politically, not personally) to pro choice. Yet I have long believed, ever since I knew there even was such an issue, that we should all be able to find some common ground on a child that has been born alive. That was, of course, before I knew about a State Senator from Illinois named Barack Obama and a doctor from Pennsylvania named Kermit Gosnell.

Presidential Priorities

Written by Administrator on .

President Obama GolfingAfter doing last nights show, I set out on the road and drove all night listening to the radio and thinking about the points I made about President Obama's leisure activities. It seriously drives me nuts when my fellow conservatives attack the guy for playing golf. Understand that the President's job is beyond a full time job, it is an all the time job. There is no real vacation or free time for the man at the helm of the nation. What we call a Presidential vacation is more like one of those packages you win when you buy a vacuum cleaner from a door to door salesman, and have to sit in on 5 hours worth of sales pitches at a resort in exchange for an overnight trip. The man needs to be able to relax, and I frankly don't care about the style of it, the substance is just that. It is a moment that the President can only hope won't be interrupted by a meltdown in Japan or a bomb in Libya. When that is your day job, see if you don't take a round of golf where you can squeeze it in.

 

Furthermore, the President may be the Commander in Chief, but he isn't exactly on the front lines, nor do we want him there. Yet even the few and the proud find some time to relax to some stick baseball in Iraq (see video below) and I will take to task anyone who dares try and begrudge them of that. The earned this moment to forget the gravity of their situation, and I love watching this video and seeing them enjoy it. Semper Fi, Devil Dog's, and thank you for your heroic service.

That is where this article was supposed to end, however my thought process continued and this is where things got a bit complicated. It is also the moment where I thanked my lucky stars that I have the integrity to avoid the bottom-feeder purely political cheap shots that pop up along the way. It gives me a leg to stand on as I make this point that followed in my thoughts.

Yesterday, we started military action against Libya. We could debate the issue of taking such action, but I'm the kind of guy who believes once that ball starts rolling, you get behind it for the troops, no matter whom the President may be. Yet some are taking Obama to task for going to Brazil on the heels of announcing such action. Is there a legitimate case to be made there?

I personally have no beef with a business related trip at such a point, but I feel that much thought and consideration should be given to postponing a trip or even canceling it based on the gravity of the situation. However, if a President has established himself as a guy who likes to "work from the road" and keep the business of the nation going no matter what challenge may present itself at the moment, I would typically support his staying the course on his schedule.

The problem here is that I think back to the Health Care Reform law, and a trip President Obama had scheduled as that situation neared it's conclusion. A trip to Indonesia and Australia was postponed then, and this is what then Press Secretary Robert Gibbs stated to be the reason.

"The president greatly regrets the delay," Gibbs said. "But passage of health insurance reform is of paramount importance, and the president is determined to see this battle through."

Putting aside the "battle" reference that has lead to members of the right being accused of spurring lunatics into violent action, today we face a real battle. Is the President determined to see this one through? If his rescheduling of a trip signifies that determination for a health care bill that wouldn't be implemented even if passed for four years, what more noble cause for such a show of will than the treasure and lives that are carrying out this military action today?

If the President feels he can handle this situation from Brazil, I have little choice but to trust his judgment on this one.  But I can't help but question the priorities of a President who feels more compelled to show his commitment to his domestic agenda than to the troops he moved into harms way.
