The Great Notre Dame-
Alabama Cookie Game

Wall Street Journal, by Jason Gay

Original Article

Posted By:smcchk, 1/7/2013 6:21:02 PM

Alabama plays Notre Dame in the BCS National Championship football game Monday night, and given the robust followings and deep traditions of both schools, there´s an expectation that the game will earn spectacular TV ratings for ESPN. There´s also an expectation that watching the game will drive an ordinary, unaffiliated football fan a little bit nuts, because no two college football programs are more stuffed with self-regard than Notre Dame and Alabama. By the third-quarter you might be ready to dangle your flat-screen out the window if you hear one more reference to "Roll Tide,"

Comments:
Some fun to break the tension for tonight´s fans!

Of course I say "Roll Tide," but I´m afraid they are going to lose. The Sports Illustrated cover last week will be the kiss of death. I´d be betting against them.

Not much of a fan, but what I heard and know says the Irish by seven points.

Someone tell me again, please - what´s Irish about a cathedral in France?

ND beat Purdue, BYU, and Pitt (in OT) by a field goal; Alabama´s only close games were LSU (#5) and Georgia (#3). A&M was another story - no team has played better football since the end of October than the Aggies.

Roll Tide!!!

You all probably won´t believe this, but I was in a Wendy´s in Port Charlotte, FL around noon today and there were a couple of guys and two cute cheerleader types in line with ´ND´ on their clothing. I was wondering what North Dakota had to do with anything. DH got home and I asked him why people from North Dakota would be at Wendy´s and he couldn´t believe his ears. Needless to say, I don´t watch football. Heard the report this evening of who would be playing ball tonight. OOOOOPS!

Who were these teams representing? I was pulling for ND but they never knew what hit them. Talk about a mis-match. I feel real sorry for all the ND fans because their boys never had a chance. For the ´Bama guys... just another day´s work at the plant.

Romney’s return to public life stokes
speculation about potential 2016 run
FOX News, by Staff    Original Article
Posted By: smcchk- 4/5/2014 3:55:13 PM     Post Reply
Former GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney has sworn off running again for elected office, but Americans have certainly heard that one before. Speculation that Romney might run again has largely been stoked by the reunion he planned to host last month in Park City, Utah, for members of his 2012 campaign and debate team and a string of recent public appearances. He has appeared on TV news shows 12 times in the past six months. That’s essentially on pace with Michigan GOP Rep. Mike Rogers, who led all national politicians last year with 26 appearances over 12 months. Romney has

Waterford school districts drop
federal lunch program
Journal Times [Racine WI], by Lindsay Bullock    Original Article

WATERFORD — New federal requirements that foods sold in schools be healthier have some area school districts opting out of the federal lunch program that provides subsidies for serving free or reduced-price meals to low-income students. Opting out means the districts do not have to follow food healthiness requirements. But it also means the districts lose federal money that covers the cost of free and reduced-price meals for poorer students. The Waterford Graded and Waterford High School districts have weighed their options and decided they’d rather forego the money and serve what they want. They’ll continue to cover the costs

Of course there is. But our leading politicians all seem to have stepped out of your college dorm. Bill Clinton is the guy who never lost a BS session argument. Ted Cruz is the only guy who never lost an argument to Bill Clinton, but who also set the dorm record for causing eyes to roll. Barack Obama is the guy you could usually defeat in an argument but only the most intelligent of your friends realized you had beaten him. George W. Bush is the guy who never participated in BS sessions. You thought he was out having a good

Poll: Growing Number of Young
Republicans Support Gay Marriage
Independent Journal Review, by Caroline Schaeffer    Original Article
Posted By: smcchk- 3/13/2014 1:08:22 AM     Post Reply
A poll released Monday by the Pew Research Center has found that support for gay marriage is increasing in those who identify as Republicans under the age of 30. 61% of those polled who lean towards the party are in favor of legalizing same-sex marriage while only 35% oppose it. This is in stark contrast to Republicans over the age of 50 – only 27% of that audience support it. Pew also found a record high percentage of Americans – 54% – support allowing gays to marry. Only 18% of young Republicans said that “more gay and lesbian couples raising children”

At Grand Army Plaza, beneath the golden equestrian statue of General Sherman, the horses stand, lazily flicking their ears, and occasionally glancing around as a yellow taxi driven by an angry Pakistani wheels around past the Plaza Hotel, brakes squealing, an Al Qaeda friendly Nasheed blaring through the open window. Feathered plumes, scarlet red, sapphire blue, electric purple, matching the colors of the plush linings of their carriages, stir faintly in the wind. The drivers, wearing black top hats and colorful suits, chat with each other while waiting for a tourist from Baltimore or Beijing to take a ride. The horses

Secretary of State Kerry lashes out at
climate change skeptics

JAKARTA, Indonesia – U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry on Sunday called climate change perhaps the world´s "most fearsome" destructive weapon and mocked those who deny its existence or question its causes, comparing them to people who insist the Earth is flat. In a speech to Indonesian students, civic leaders and government officials, Kerry tore into climate change skeptics. He accused them of using shoddy science and scientists to delay steps needed to reduce emissions of greenhouse gases at the risk of imperiling the planet. A day earlier, the U.S. and China announced an agreement to cooperate more closely on

Bill de Blasio’s Red Apple Agenda
Front Page Magazine, by Daniel Greenfield    Original Article
Posted By: smcchk- 2/12/2014 12:13:27 AM     Post Reply
The further left a radical politician wants to go, the more likely he is to wrap his agenda in a mainstream Republican brand. In his interview with Bill O’Reilly, Obama compared himself to Nixon (not for the reason most Republicans would expect) and in his State of the City address, Bill de Blasio compared himself to Fiorello H. La Guardia; a former Republican mayor of New York City. The constant mentions of La Guardia, a universally popular figure, were a poor mask for a radical address filled with ugly divisive rhetoric, class warfare and schemes that will bankrupt the city.

For Hillary Clinton, having her own baby grandchild to kiss on the campaign trail, could be one of the biggest boosts to her possible presidential election campaign. Although the former Secretary of State and First Lady has not said if she will run in 2016, the arrival of her first grandchild will soften her image, analysts have said. While Chelsea only revealed her pregnancy on Thursday, supporters of her mother have already started cooing over a possible baby in the White House. With the Clintons having a near-royal status in the U.S., the announcement of a new arrival due this fall has sent

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too

That was quite a victory dance President Obama did Thursday while claiming Obamacare is “working” because eight million people have now supposedly signed up for the health care program. He even indulged in some less-than-subtle mockery of Republicans - and by extension the majority of Americans who have disapproved of Obamacare since before it became law. "The repeal debate is and should be over,” Obama said, taking a dig at Republicans who are “going through, you know, the stages of grief … anger and denial and all that stuff …” But a president who is viewed by most Americans as less

Hi, everybody. For millions of Americans, this time of year holds great meaning. Earlier this week, we hosted a Passover Seder at the White House, and joined Jewish families around the world in their re-tellings of the story of the Exodus and the victory of faith over oppression. And this Sunday, Michelle, Malia, Sasha, and I will join our fellow Christians around the world in celebrating the Resurrection of Christ, the salvation he offered the world, and the hope that comes with the Easter season. These holy days have their roots in miracles that took place long ago. And yet, they still inspire us, guide us, and strengthen us today. They remind us of our

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Thursday that a family of dissident ranchers and their supporters in his home state of Nevada are ´domestic terrorists,´ citing this week´s standoff with the federal government´s Bureau of Land Management. Cliven Bundy has refused to pay grazing fees for land where his hundreds of cattle roam every day. The land is owned by the federal government, which says he owes more than $1 million. Bundy, however, insists that since his family has been using the land since the 1870s, Uncle Sam can´t collect the grazing fees. A tense standoff developed this week after

WASHINGTON--Rushing to an afternoon vote last month, Sen. Ted Cruz hopped the underground tram to the U.S. Capitol from his office across the street. The Texan planted his black ostrich cowboy boots in the middle of the small subway car without getting so much as a nod from the other senators--Republican or Democrat--amiably chatting or huddled in their seats. Mr. Cruz finds himself standing alone a lot these days. His response to the cold shoulders: "The establishment despised Ronald Reagan" before he became president, "but the people loved him." For the 43-year-old Republican, the Reagan name illuminates his political life´s
