“I think it will happen sooner than you think. We’re in talks with a handful of players who are considering it. There are up to four players being talked to right now and they’re trying to be organized so they can come out on the same day together. It would make a major splash and take the pressure off one guy. It would be a monumental day if a handful or a few guys come out.” Brendon Ayanbadejo
To many of us it seems like the fact that no NFL player has come out is quite surprising for 2013. Just like skin color, sexual orientation doesn’t matter (and hasn’t) to most people. What matters is the person themselves. Whether an NFL player is straight or gay is not a big deal what matters is if they are a good person (and a good player of course is a bonus).
If asking a billionaire to pay the same tax rate as a Jew, uh, as a janitor makes me a warrior for the working class, I wear that with a badge of honor. I have no problem with that. President Obama, September 24, 2011.
You can see it here, now why would he “slip” and say “jew” instead of “janitor”. They are nothing alike.

This one’s truly, uh … rich: Billionaire Warren Buffett says folks like him should have to pay more taxes — but it turns out his firm, Berkshire Hathaway, hasn’t paid what it’s already owed for years. That’s right: As Americans for Limited Government President Bill Wilson notes, the company openly admits that it owes back taxes since as long ago as 2002. “We anticipate that we will resolve all adjustments proposed by the US Internal Revenue Service (“IRS”) for the 2002 through 2004 tax years … within the next 12 months,” the firm’s annual report says. It also cites outstanding tax issues for 2005 through 2009.
Obvious question: If Buffett really thinks he and his “mega-rich friends” should pay higher taxes, why doesn’t his firm fork over what it already owes undercurrent rates?

A question: what is the “fair share” percentage? What kind of definition of “fair” means that some people pay a higher percentage than others? It is the same definition included in Animal Farm where all animals are equal, just some animals are more equal than others.

Will the extremist Democrat Demagogues in Washington be financially responsible? Will the sun go dark at noon tomorrow? This week the President has reached a new low in demagoguery.
The President demagogues about the rich and their jets while a Democrat controlled House and filibuster-proof Senate passed with President Obama’s signature, the very provisions President Obama is complaining about.
This goes to show how far the extremist Democrat demagogues in Washington go to hold on to their own power instead of doing what is right and responsible.
The extreme spenders in Washington are more concerned about their own power rather than financial responsibility. The height of extremist foot-dragging has come from the President this week.
Here is video explaining how some Sheriffs in Florida intend to infringe upon the rights of law abiding citizens in the State of Florida, if Florida becomes an open carry State. Rick Hernandez, Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office, and Jim Coats of Pinellas County are disgraces to the badge for making statements like this. Hernandez states that anyone open carrying will be stopped. “When someone is walking down the street with an exposed gun, nobody knows if they’re legal or not legal. Do they have a permit? Maybe they do maybe they don’t.” No mention of probable cause. There are millions of people driving in Florida every day no one knows if they are legal or legal. Do they have a license? Maybe they do, maybe they don’t. Imagine if you could be stopped in your car just to verify your license? Sounds like a police state.
Jim Coats goes so far as to say “rights need to be granted in a responsible way.” Sheriff Coats, I think you have the United States confused with a Fascist country, perhaps Hitler’s Germany. In the United States, rights are not granted to the people. Rights are retained by the people. Privileges are granted, rights are not. Hernandez ends with “If we think that people carrying guns openly makes you safer, I think that is a bad assumption.” If we are operating on assumptions, I think Sheriffs like these two individuals carrying guns openly makes the entire State of Florida less safe.
Sheriff Rick Hernandez says it will be “very, very cumbersome, and very, very scary” if Florida becomes open carry. “Very cumbersome”? Sorry, Sheriff, if doing your job is “cumbersome” perhaps you should find a different profession? We wouldn’t want to have our rights make your job more difficult now would we. He goes on to state that “our stress level is very high at this point.” Well excuse the public for making you do your job. You don’t like the stress level? Pick another profession.
I do not know who is hiring these Sheriffs and police officers in Florida, but the quality and caliber of the men involved is so low as to be disappointing to anyone in the State.
Remember: when seconds count, the police are just minutes away. Exercise your rights or lose them.
The racists at USA Today are at it again, lamenting (yet another) of President Obama’s broken promises, which as USA Today states as “Obama’s broken promise: I’ll help jobless blacks“.
A simple question for USA Today: What is the different between “jobless blacks,” “jobless hispanics,” or “jobless whites”? Why is a “jobless black” more important than anyone else?
Why the focus on something as stupid as skin color? Ah yes, the racists have to focus on skin color in order to divided people. Dividing people is the way to keep people from seeing the real problem is those who want to rule instead of those who want freedom.
I want to know the jobless rate of people with green eyes, the jobless rate of people with shorter than average noses and the jobless rate of people with brown eyes. Hazel and blue eyes? Maybe next week. Not to mention the jobless rate of people with freckles.
It’s a basic reflection of our belief that those who benefited most from our way of life can afford to give back a little bit more. Moreover, this belief hasn’t hindered the success of those at the top of the income scale, they continue to do better and better with each passing year,” President Obama said at an address about the budget at George Washington University. April 2011
Mr. President, “give” means voluntary. “Gifts” do not occur at the point of a gun.
