    The College Football Czar: Week 1 If you're reading the College Football Czar’s week one picks, that must mean that yet another long summer of terrible TV is about to come to a merciful end. So – if you’ve been keeping a football around the house to talk to, with a face drawn on it like Wilson from Cast Away ... If you’ve gone to an empty football stadium during the offseason, sat there for hours, and told yourself that the reason there was no scoring was that Boston College was playing ... If a genie recently granted you whatever...

  • Obamacare adds useless ‘preview’ option to dysfunctional website

    Daily Caller ^ | 10/12/13
    Obamacare’s website, healthcare.gov, recently added an option that allows users to preview their new health care premiums — but the new feature leaves out key pieces of information customers need to choose a health care plan. While The Huffington Post celebrated the changes at Healthcare.gov in a Friday report, the publication admitted that users were only provided limited data about the program in exchange for basic information about where they live and what kind of coverage they are seeking. More detailed information is not factored into the preview, such as: home address, number and ages of adults and children covered...

    I have put together a political music video which parodies 2 songs from Pink Floyd's "The Wall". It is very hard hitting, and intentionally disturbing. A very short taste or preview is available here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KGEewPKkU5E What I need is some like minded freepers to preview the entire video which I will upload later tonight for private viewing. If you would like to help, I will need you to PM me here with your youtube user id, and either send a youtube friend request, or accept my invite I send to you later.

    The Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee is message-testing with a web ad going after former Hewlett Packard boss Carla Fiorina -- highlighting her huge severance package and the 18,000 staff reductions she instituted to bolster profits and HP's stock price. Fiorina has filed papers with the California elections board and is expected to challenge Sen. Barbara Boxer (D-Calif.) next fall. Her cash, name recognition and ease on TV have gotten Democrats good and worried. A July Rasmussen Survey [take it with a grain] shows Boxer leading Fiorina by a 45-to-41 percent. The first quote is from Fiorina herself from a recent...

    The Houston Texans took the field Friday for the start of their eighth season. After back-to-back 8-8 campaigns in 2007 and 2008, the Texans are facing their highest expectations yet. The motto for the players, coaches and fans is “Playoffs or bust.” Head coach Gary Kubiak, who enters his fourth season at the helm of the Texans, has not shied away from his players talking about the playoffs. Kubiak said, “I like the players to think that way. I like that everybody around here is to the point that we feel like our football team has a chance to do...

    WASHINGTON, June 29, 2007 – Under the cover of darkness in the nation’s capital last night, servicemembers from all branches deployed into theater -- the movie theater. About 600 military personnel and family members attended a sneak preview of “Transformers,” the summer science fiction action-adventure film set for national release July 3. Audience members cheered as virtuous Autobot transformers fought in concert with their U.S. military allies against the depraved Decepticons, while the clash between good and evil played out in stunning images and bone-rattling sound. “That was without a doubt the best movie I have ever seen,” Army Staff...

    ... Schwarzenegger will need the same people skills to repair another fracture on his right — his deteriorating relationship with the legislative wing of the Republican Party. Right now, that relationship is headed from critical condition to "do not resuscitate." LEGISLATIVE Republicans have every reason to gripe. The governor's most notable "conservative" accomplishments are defensive in nature: He hasn't raised taxes (now debatable, depending on how one interprets the revenue provisions of his universal healthcare plan); he hasn't signed a same-sex marriage law; and he refuses to provide driver's licenses to illegal immigrants. ... There is an underlying irony to...

    Signs you might see in a football locker room:“Play like a champion today.”“There is no ‘I’ in team.”“Winners never quit, quitters never win.”Here’s a saying some coaches would do well to post:“Patience is a virtue.”Players, particularly the ones who were blue-chip recruits and have been told of their greatness since dominating Pop Warner leagues, have no interest in waiting for their time to shine. They want it NOW and if they don’t get it NOW then, it’s “See ya, wouldn’t wanna be ya.”Last season, Josh Portis was expected to be the Quarterback Of The Future at Florida. With Chris Leak...

    This weekend I've added the Saturday night/Sunday morning Fox/WSJ "Journal Editorial Report" to the mix.  It looks to be a very interesting addition (on "our side," maybe?).Last weekend I clearly missed the MSM spin on the "White House is being too secretive" meme (though I was on  the right track with the "they're being mean" idea).  When I post a meme it is simply my best guess and I'm desperately reaching out for others to correct or augment anything I post.  That's the purpose of my thread.  Not to declare "this is what is" but to ask "is this close"...

    WASHINGTON, Feb. 1, 2006 – Terrorists have failed repeatedly to meet their objectives in Iraq, Defense Secretary Donald H. Rumsfeld said here today. "They failed to stop the January elections, they failed to stop the drafting of the constitution, they failed to stop the referendum on the constitution, they failed to stop the most recent election, they failed to stop the seating of the parliament, they're going to fail to stop the seating of a new government," Rumsfeld said at a Pentagon news briefing.

    From the Supreme Court on down, America's judiciary, once representing the hope of justice, equality under law and protection of the innocent, has largely become just the opposite – persecutor of the innocent, protector of the corrupt and destroyer of the Constitution, according to the no-holds-barred August edition of WND's popular Whistleblower magazine. Titled "LAW-LESS: Why many Americans fear attorneys and judges more than terrorists," this eye-opening and disturbing special report leads off with veteran radio talk host and columnist Dennis Prager, who writes: I was raised to believe that law is the glory of decent society; that the rule...
