NBA……season on the brink?

With the breakdown in Labor talks today, it appears the NBA season is in jeopardy. Does anyone care? Who are the bad guys in this negotiation? How many of you are tired of millionaire players arguing with billionaire owners? I think rathe than argue that they (players) should get 65% of total league revenues in exchange for a “Hard cap”, they should be more concerned about educating their own so that we’re not reading about another NBA player going bankrupt because he blew through his first $50 million. That’s more of a tragedy than anything.

Tea Party: A group of Slogans, and nothing more.

 

The Tea Party movement are about as organized as the GOP Debates. In other words, they’re all over the place, yet they have nothing to say other than “Founding fathers” slogans that don’t play in the 21st Century.

Last night, this happened in the GOP/Teabagger, err, Party, debate:

<<Texas Rep. Ron Paul, a doctor, was asked a hypothetical question by CNN host Wolf Blitzer about how society should respond if a healthy 30-year-old man who decided against buying health insurance suddenly goes into a coma and requires intensive care for six months. Paul–a fierce limited-government advocate– said it shouldn’t be the government’s responsibility. “That’s what freedom is all about, taking your own risks,” Paul said and was drowned out by audience applause as he added, “this whole idea that you have to prepare to take care of everybody …”

“Are you saying that society should just let him die?” Blitzer pressed Paul. And that’s when the audience got involved.

Several loud cheers of “yeah!” followed by laughter could be heard in the Expo Hall at the Florida State Fairgrounds in response to Blitzer’s question.>> – By Rachel Rose Hartman | The Ticket

Paul tried to backpeddle, but its obvious he’s just as crazy as the Teabaggers.

As an American, this is just about the most Un-American thing I think I have heard in quite sometime, save for just about everytime that idiot Sarah Palin utters a word.

Gee….and I thought the Right was the ‘Party of Life. “ Apparently not.

The Ground Zero debate

Question:

Do you believe that the Muslims should or should not build their Community Center near Ground Zero?

Before you answer…..consider that there are several Japanese restaurants in and around Pearl Harbor, and McDonalds, an American Corporation, has a McDonalds right smack in the middle of Hiroshima.

Now, if you are going to cite “it’s to close to Ground Zero”, “They are gloating”, etc, etc, then how do you justify that, and then allow a McDonalds at the cite of the First “Ground Zero”, where the U.S. dropped an A-Bomb and killed thousands of innocent people.
