    I remember when President Obama turned up the “race” card with Skip Gates, Trayvon Martin, and the riots in Ferguson Missouri. I cannot forget his role as agitator in chief and how he never missed an opportunity to pick the scabs of the racial divide. In my opinion, his actions were so un-presidential. I remember when President Obama forced socialized medicine down the throats of unsuspecting citizens with his famous double-headed lie “if you like you Dr. you can keep your Dr. and if you like your plan you can keep your plan.” That didn’t seem very presidential to me....
  • Titan’s Delanie Walker has OUTRAGEOUS message for boycotting fans

    Delanie Walker is a tight end for the NFL’s Tennessee Titans and has opened his yap about fans who are upset over players choosing to disrespect our nation’s flag and anthem by sitting it out at the start of games. He probably should’ve just clammed up. Walker, who is currently on a two-year contract that’s paying him $13,375,000 (that’s THIRTEEN MILLION THREE HUNDRED AND SEVENTY FIVE THOUSAND DOLLARS) that includes a “signing bonus,” a “roster bonus,” a “workout bonus” plus other incentives, has come across as the ultimate entitled millionaire jock by telling fans he really doesn’t care if you...

  • California Woman Who Tried to Sell a Moon Rock Wins Round Against NASA

    Joann Davis had a moon rock. Yes, it was real. A gift, she said, from Neil Armstrong to her late husband. She also had an ill son and the Lake Elsinore resident wanted to help with his medical care. So she contacted NASA about her intention to sell it. That led to a nightmare situation on May 19, 2011, when Davis stood in the parking lot of a Denny’s restaurant in pants soaked in urine, answering questions from a federal agent about a rice-sized piece of moon. “He kept saying, ‘You will be going to federal court, you will be...
  • 'Gun violence'? No! Goon violence: 'Bad people do bad things'

    For a short while, the thing called “gun violence” was uppermost in the minds of the blabbering class. Two lovely young people, Alison Parker (news reporter) and Adam Ward (photojournalist), of Roanoke, Virginia, were gunned-down on live TV, in a scene reminiscent of the film “15 Minutes,” in which an anchor’s drive for ratings and a murderer’s quest for his 15 Minutes of Fame result in … gun, fist and other gratuitous, on-air violence. A week on, CNN’s Poppy Harlow was using the language of George Orwell’s Oceania to describe the entity, “gun violence,” that “took” the life of poor...

    They called themselves "the Helpful Union Guys" - "THUGS" for short - and woe awaited any contractor who dared cross them by hiring non-organized workers. For, federal authorities alleged Tuesday, this "goon squad" of members of Ironworkers Local 401 set fires, started riots, and took crowbars to the competition in an effort to protect union jobs. FBI agents arrested 10 of the union's leaders Tuesday morning, including longtime head Joseph Dougherty, in a racketeering conspiracy case that appeared to affirm long-standing business complaints over the tactics employed by Philadelphia unions.

    Amazing. When Bill Clinton was president, he visited San Francisco, and my brother-in-law's group, Lavay Smith and Her Red-Hot Skillet Lickers, was invited to play for him. Bill Clinton was so concerned about the weird implications of the band's name that he made them change it (for media purposes) to Lavay Smith and the Red Hots. Well, times have changed for the Clintons. I just got this press release from Hillary Clinton's campaign (geez, you couldn't make this stuff up). AUSTIN, TX - The Grammy Award-winning music group, "La Mafia," today announced their endorsement of Hillary Clinton for President. "Throughout...

    A lawyer for fugitive Democratic Party fundraiser Norman Hsu said today that Hsu has been under "enormous and perhaps unbearable" strain in the past week and that Hsu's attorneys are relieved he is being cared for in a Colorado hospital. James Brosnahan, a San Francisco lawyer, said the criminal case pending against Hsu in San Mateo County Superior Court "will be handled in its proper course." Brosnahan said, "The strain he has been under during the last week has been enormous, and perhaps, unbearable. We will be getting him the best medical care available." Hsu, 56, was arrested by the...

    Who, in your opinion is or was the dirtiest player in the NHL? Looking at ESPN and hockey boards, names that stand out are Ulf "The Career Killer" Samuelsson, Claude "The Girl" Lemeuix, Gordie "Face Wash" Howe, Bobby "Ankle Slash" Clarke, and Dale "I didn't know the play was over" Hunter. Notably absent were people like Bob Probert, who was more of an enforcer or "goon", that a dirty player. Some also mentioned agressive players like Darius "The Giant Killer" Kaspiritus.

    Suit Backing Muslim Scholar Challenges Part of Patriot Act By JULIA PRESTON Citing the case of a prominent Swiss Muslim scholar who has been barred from the United States, the American Civil Liberties Union filed a federal lawsuit today seeking to strike down a clause of the USA Patriot Act that bans foreigners who endorse terrorist activity from traveling to this country. The suit was filed in Federal District Court in Manhattan on behalf of the scholar, Tariq Ramadan, and three national organizations of academics or writers who have invited him to speak to their members. The groups, including the...

    When he got the news Monday afternoon, Steve Moore was in Cleveland after going through more physical tests at the world-renowned Cleveland Clinic. NHL commissioner Gary Bettman announced Vancouver Canucks winger Todd Bertuzzi, suspended indefinitely 17 months ago for his attack on Moore in a game in Vancouver, has been reinstated and will be able to play at the outset of the 2005-06 season. "I find that the appropriate discipline to be imposed for Mr. Bertuzzi's conduct on March 8, 2004, is the suspension that has been served to date," Bettman said in a statement. Bertuzzi missed the final 13...

    Former Oakland Raiders linebacker Bill Romanowski will pay $415,000 to ex-teammate Marcus Williams, whom he punched in the face during a practice, attorneys said Friday. An Alameda County jury ruled in March that Romanowski, 38, should pay Williams $340,000 in lost wages and medical expenses for the incident two years ago. But Williams, who had sought millions of dollars in damages, was seeking a new trial — despite announcing after the verdict the case was not about money but proving what was right and wrong in football. “We’re delighted to have settled the case,” said Romanowski attorney Jeffrey Springer of...

    When two assailants attacked conservative columnist Ann Coulter with pies while she was giving a speech at the University of Arizona in October, most people, including the speaker, dismissed it as a prank. When an enraged protester threw his shoe at former Pentagon adviser Richard Perle during a debate with Howard Dean, crying "Liar, liar," in February, it was quickly forgotten. Earlier this month, when assailants tossed pies and salad dressing at conservatives William Kristol and Patrick Buchanan at two separate campus events, the media played it as a joke. But when another pie thrower lobbed his projectile at conservative...

    Well, that time has come for me. I’m leaving FR. However, I do not consider this an “opus”, as I am NOT going to use it to rehash old slights or arguments, or to give my personal opinion of what “should be done around here”. As has been so often pointed out, this is Jim Robinson’s site, and he runs it as he sees fit. Rather, all I’m going to do here is give a general reason for my departure, and say a hearty-but-sad “GOODBYE!” to all the folks here who have enriched my life in the past four years....

    New York Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton (D-NY) has long been rumored as desperately seeking the democratic nomination for president in 2008.
