  • Cheaters Never Win

    Charting Course ^ | 1/26/15 | Steve Berman
    I win and you cheated. That’s what my four year-old says whenever we race from the bedroom to the kitchen, or up and down the driveway, or whatever he decides is now a competition.  He’s learned from his TV shows* that “cheaters never win”, and therefore anyone who doesn’t  win, must be a cheater.  And even if you do cheat, if you win, you haven’t cheated, because winners never cheat. My son has summed up liberal thought perfectly. In his four year-old brain, he’s failed to make the leap that winning by cheating robs you of the win, and that...

    PoliticusUSA - Real Liberal Politics ^ | January 24, 2015 | Justin Baragona
    News broke Friday evening that one of the greatest baseball players to ever play the game, Ernie Banks, had passed away at the age of 83. The man lovingly known as “Mr. Cub” spent his enter major league career with the North Side franchise, slugging 512 home runs and winning two NL MVP awards. The 14-time All-Star started his playing career in the Negro Leagues and was the first black player to put on a Chicago Cubs uniform. Despite playing for the perennially bottom-dwelling Cubbies, his optimism and love of the game never wavered, as evidenced by his famous quote,...
  • Russell Wilson NFC Championship Game Interview Reflects Powerful Optimism of Faith [Video]

    Dignitas News Service ^ | January 18, 2015 | Paul M Winters
    In an emotion filled interview at the conclusion of Sunday's NFC Championship Game, Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson perfectly reflected the powerful optimism that faith in God brings.  For a young man headed to his second Super Bowl and on top of the NFL in only his third season, he also displayed the refreshing humility of a true leader of men and follower of Christ. His humble optimism is a key component to a faith in God which is often derided or dismissed by the non-believer, and far too often forgotten or taken for granted by the believer. For Russell Wilson and entire Seattle Seahawks team, much...

    Minnesota Governor Mark Dayton (D) is pushing for a law that would ban football game kick-offs before noon. “The early start times are really unfair to the poor and minorities, many of whom are still in bed at that hour,” Dayton claimed. “These start times may be okay for people who are used to getting up early to go to work, but they are out of sync with other lifestyles.” Setting a time more accommodating to these “other lifestyles” is important because “watching TV is a much bigger part of the lives of those on public assistance. They shouldn’t be...

    Senator Harry Reid was injured when a home exercise apparatus he was using collapsed under him. The former Majority Leader suffered broken bones in his face and ribs. Though his injuries were described as "relatively minor," Reid's anger at the Koch brothers was not. "I don't know how they did it, but their insidious campaign of terror against this country's legitimate leaders must be stopped," Reid demanded. Doubtful that a judicial remedy could suffice due to lack of evidence, Reid vowed he would "call upon the President to utilize his newly asserted executive authority to ensure that justice is meted...

    Michael Sam is again dominating NFL headlines. You’ll recall that Sam announced he was a homosexual before the NFL Draft. He was then drafted by the St. Louis Rams but didn’t make the team. He was signed to the Dallas Cowboys practice squad but was cut from that as well. Having done absolutely nothing in the NFL, Oprah Winfrey interviewed him and now he’s all the rage again within the liberal sports media. Let’s be clear about Sam, he hasn’t played a single down of football in the NFL. He’s no hero, he’s a washed up linebacker who simply doesn’t...

White House officials continue to monitor the situation,” reported Wall Street Journal’s Carol Lee. Obama endured harsh criticism for golfing minutes after issuing a statement on the beheading of James Foley at the hands of Muslim militants in September. “You know, it is always a challenge when you’re supposed to be on vacation because you’re followed everywhere.

    The Michael Brown & Eric Garner circus has demonstrated (again) that the media are happy to fill the air with 'X reacts to Y' and 'Y reacts to Z' and 'Z reacts to X' - conveniently arriving back at X to start another cycle - without ever engaging in actual journalistic due diligence. Despite billions in state of the art satellite trucks, audio/video gear and an army of reporters, the media (apparently) cannot bring themselves to break out of the mode of providing a megaphone to those who are already screaming unintelligibly. In the 90s, before the truth about his...

    If Hall of Fame quarterback Fran Tarkenton doesn't think much of your abilities as an NFL quarterback, he has no problem speaking his mind. A.J. McCarron knows all about this. As does Tim Tebow and, yep, Brett Favre. And so does Robert Griffin III and Mike Shanahan, especially after Tarkenton went negative after the Redskins lost their 2012 playoff game to the Seahawks. Now, during an interview with theMMQB.com's Jenny Vrentas, Tarkenton took another crack at Griffin, who's lost his starting Redskins job to Colt McCoy and who very well could be off the team before 2015.

After Sunday’s game, the St. Louis Police Officers Assocation condemned the gesture. “The St. Louis Police Officers Association is profoundly disappointed with the members of the St. Louis Rams football team who chose to ignore the mountains of evidence released from the St. Louis County Grand Jury this week and engage in a display that police officers around the nation found tasteless, offensive and inflammatory,” the SLPOA said, via KSDK.com....

    Joe DiMaggio would have turned 100 on Tuesday, so it seems appropriate to remember him as I do — as the finest baseball player I ever saw play our delicate little game. Bobby Doerr, the Hall of Fame Red Sox second baseman, once told me his teammate Ted Williams was the best hitter of their time but that Joe was the best all-around player. I grew up rooting for the Yankees as a kid in New Haven and, much later, when I got to know Joe well, I never failed to feel as if I were in the presence of...

    Last week a Black Islamist professional basketball player refused to come out of his team’s locker room claiming he did so because his “religion” requires him to honor only Islam and nothing else. If you haven’t heard about this don’t be surprised. Sharia has been creeping into professional sports in America through Black athletes for the last several years. All of these players with made up “Islamist” names are under the spell of CAIR and groups like it. Combining this with the “Muslim population Rule,” which holds that as they grow in numbers within a given universe they will become...

Effective January 1, 2001, no handgun may be manufactured within California, imported into California for sale, lent, given, kept for sale, or offered/exposed for sale unless that handgun model has passed firing, safety, and drop tests and is certified for sale in California by the Department of Justice. Private party transfers, curio/relic handguns, certain single-action revolvers, and pawn/consignment returns are exempt from this requirement. This is the California-compliant tactile loaded chamber indicator. Before a new handgun can be sold in California, it must first be...

    Coach is Right ^ | 9/21/14 | Suzanne Eovaldi
    How quickly the despicable media turned the theme of black male violence into an uncaring white guy scenario which blames the depravity of NFL thugs on Roger Goodell. Just consider the fact that Ray Rice punched his female partner so hard that her head was driven THREE FEET backward and into the wall of a casino elevator. Take a second look at this young lady being dragged out of the elevator, UNCONSCIOUS, while her feet are left across the track of doors that could quickly close. Janay Palmer Rice went back her abusive husband. But the violence of Black males,...
  • ESPN Used To Be A Sports Network

    09/18/2014 4:52:37 AM PDT · by LeoMcNeil · 32 replies
    There was a time not too long ago where you could turn on ESPN or sports talk without being subjected to politics. Unfortunately sports programing has turned into an endless stream of political issues pushed almost exclusively by sports journalists. The NFL is their current target. Ray Rice beat up his then fiancee. Everyone has known that he punched her for over six months, the NFL responded with a 2 game suspension. Then a video of the attack came out. Suddenly the NFL suspended Rice indefinitely and ESPN has decided to have a “national conversation” about how we need to...

    Charting Course ^ | 9/17/14 | Steve Berman
    Is Adrian Peterson a child abuser?  He says he’s not. I am not a perfect son. I am not a perfect husband. I am not a perfect parent, but I am, without a doubt, not a child abuser. I am someone that disciplined his child and did not intend to cause him any injury. No one can understand the hurt that I feel for my son and for the harm I caused him. My goal is always to teach my son right from wrong and that’s what I tried to do that day. What did Peterson do?  He told his four...
  • Fracking dollars help save a sports icon in fracking-free New York (NFL's Buffalo Bills)

    The Barrel ^ | September 12, 2014 | John Kingston
    Another chapter in the never-ending love/hate relationship between New York and fracking. The former has banned the latter, as we’re sure you know. First, let’s go back to 2010. East Resources, which is a privately held independent oil and gas company operating in the Marcellus, among other areas, sells a vast amount of acreage in the Marcellus and other areas to Royal Dutch Shell for $4.7 billion. Then go back to earlier this year. Ralph Wilson, the only man who ever owned the Buffalo Bills, dies in March. So his heirs put the Bills–who haven’t made the NFL playoffs since...
