One might argue that to name a professional football team after Native Americans (Washington Redskins) would exalt them as warriors, but nay nay....
We must be careful not to offend, and in the spirit of political correctness and courtesy, we must move forward.
Let's ditch The Kansas City Chiefs, The Atlanta Braves and the Cleveland Indians. If your shorts are in a wad because of the reference the name Redskins makes to skin color, then we need to get rid of the Cleveland Browns, too.
The Carolina Panthers obviously were named to keep the memory of the militant Blacks from the 60's alive. Gone. Offensive to us white folk.
The New York Yankees offend the Southern population. Do you see a team named for the Confederacy? No! There is no room for any reference to that tragic war between the states that cost this country so many young men's lives. Besides, the South shall rise again!
I am also offended by the blatant references to the Catholic religion among our football team names. Totally inappropriate to have the New Orleans Saints, Los Angeles Angels or the San Diego Padres. The fact that there are birds on their shirts does not protect either the Arizona or the St. Louis Cardinals---gone!
Then there are the team names that glorify criminals who raped and pillaged as their way of life. We are talking the horrible Oakland Raiders, the Minnesota Vikings, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and the Pittsburgh Pirates!
Now, let us address those teams that clearly send the wrong message to our children---and it is all about the children.
The Green Bay Packers and the St. Louis Rams--promote gay men. Wrong message to our children.
The San Diego Chargers promote irresponsible spending habits. Wrong message to our children.
The New York Giants and the San Francisco Giants promote obesity--a growing childhood epidemic. Wrong message to our children.
The Cincinnati Reds promote downers/barbiturates. Wrong message to our children.
The Milwaukee Brewers---well, that goes without saying... Wrong message to our children.
So, there you go. We need to support any legislation that comes out to rectify this travesty, because the government will likely become involved with this issue, as they should. A high priority directly behind efficiently managing our country's health care.
It’s a 100 percent lie, according to the White House’s own figures."Last Thursday, President Obama purported to undo the “Affordable” Care Act (ACA) mandates that he column, I argued that Obama’s latest unilateral diktat is lawless and transparently political. With each passing day, however, what becomes more breathtaking is the depth of systematic, calculated lying that went into the extensive — the criminal — Obamacare fraud."
The New York Times today compares the Obamacare debacle to Bush's problems with Katrina. It's a comparison I've considered myself. However the obvious difference is that George Bush didn't spend years forcing the Affordable Hurricane Act on the American people..and he didn't have three years to plan for its arrival. Nor did he have a national press corps desperate to minimize the downside of the storm. Unless you're Louis Farrakhan or Spike Lee, nobody entertains the idea that flooding New Orleans has been a goal of conservatism for decades. Conservatives didn't go around saying that they had completely and totally mastered all of the nuances of meteorology and climate. And -- wait -- I should also mention that Republicans never said that any criticism of their Affordable Hurricane Act was racist and extremist. Aha! I almost forgot. Bush didn't promise every single living American: "You can keep your current weather if you like it. Period."
But other than that, I guess the comparison is spot on.
