Obama: Tough call on
letting a son play football

WASHINGTON — President Barack Obama is a big football fan with two daughters, but if he had a son, he says he´d "have to think long and hard" before letting him play because of the physical toll the game takes. "I think that those of us who love the sport are going to have to wrestle with the fact that it will probably change gradually to try to reduce some of the violence," Obama tells The New Republic. "In some cases, that may make it a little bit less exciting, but it will be a whole lot better

Next liberal target: football. No touching, No scorekeeping, no one can ever win.

Gosh darn it, aren´t we lucky to have such a caring Furher, oops I mean Dictator, oops I mean president who by golly wants to make sure that none of us will ever be unhappy or in danger thanks to his goverment control over every tiny aspect of our lives. I mean really we should all get down on our knees and offer up prayers of gratitute that we have such a great loving, caring leader!

Notice how our watchdog media, represented n this propaganda article by the AP, treats Dictator Obama´s totalitarian statement as if it was such a nice family man statement and makes it seem like the most natural thing in the world for this Dictator to meddle in everything.

What they should be writing is what damn business is it of this Dictator to stick his nose into a private enterprise, the NFL, to imply that his regime will be imposing rules on the game of football. The propaganda media must be destroyed if we hope to bring back our great nation from the brink of destruction.

By the way Obama doesn´t have a son because the eggs implanted in the First Wookie´s womb were female. Someone should tell him that in order to have a chance at a son he needs to perform the act of coitus with his wife which is something I am sure he avoids like the plague.

I wish he would knock it off, he doesn´t have a son and who cares what he would think. It´s always if I had this, if I had that with this guy. Well you don´t just shut up and let us have some peace the next four years, you don´t have to inject yourself into everyday life.

Since he doesn´t have sons, but does have daughters, he can now let the little darlings enlist and go to Iran or Iraq to fight in the front lines. Oh wait, instant General girls don´t do that.

Pro football players get paid fortunes to play a dangerous contact game, and it is a personal choice. Soldiers risk their lives and get paid hardly anything for risking their lives in combat. Special rules for football players, but send women into combat. Get real.

If Obama had a son, he would likely be the same un-athletic, limp-wristed, metrosexual as his father. He would be "Wedgie Boy" in the locker room, and couldn´t even be trusted to be an equipment manager. Likely, he´d steal all the equipment to give out to his friends. After all, it is unfair that the athletes "get all the free stuff."

On the other hand, if his son took after Moochelle, he would be the team´s star linebacker. Disliked by all because of his big mouth, but a formidable force.

ALTAMONTE SPRINGS, Fla. - Innovative Title Services, Inc., a real estate title services company established in 2003, faces a tax penalty that could virtually shut down the small business.

New York - In the fall of 2013, I gave a TED talk on what I learned as a progressive, on-air talking head at Fox News, where I worked for two years before leaving and joining my current home, CNN.

London - British police said Tuesday they had intervened after North Korean embassy officials reportedly told a London hairdresser to take down a discount haircuts advert featuring leader Kim Jong-Un. Mo Nabbach said two officials identifying themselves as being from the Stalinist state´s mission took pictures of his M&M Hair Academy in Ealing, west London. They then demanded to know his name and ordered him to remove the "disrespectful" poster from the salon window, he told the Evening Standard newspaper.

KIEV/MOSCOW - Armed separatists took virtual control of a city in eastern Ukraine on Saturday and Kiev prepared troops to deal with what it called an "act of aggression by Russia". Pro-Russian activists carrying automatic weapons seized government buildings in Slaviansk and set up barricades on the outskirts of the city. Official buildings in several neighboring towns were also attacked. The developments have increased concerns of a possible "gas war" that could disrupt energy supplies across the continent. "The Ukrainian authorities consider the events of the day as a display of external aggression from Russia,"

The Sandpoint, Idaho-based company plans to time its liquidation sales to coincide with the traditionally busy Mother’s Day weekend. Coldwater Creek is the latest retailer to seek protection from creditors as consumers continue to manage their household budgets tightly and hold back on discretionary spending. Others to file for bankruptcy include discount chain Loehmann’s, trendy retailer Dots and the plus-sized Ashley Stewart Holdings.

Neurosurgeon Ben Carson says the White House wanted him to apologize for “offending” President Obama after he famously delivered a conservative message at the National Prayer Breakfast last year. Carson, the former director of pediatric neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins Hospital, recalls the events surrounding his 2013 speech in his new book, One Nation: What We Can All Do To Save America’s Future. The Daily Caller obtained an advance copy of the book, which is set for release May 20. “He did not appear to be hostile or angry,” Carson writes of Obama, “but within a matter of minutes after the conclusion of

Since then, I have continued to study the facts and have drawn some conclusions. Here they are. First, it must be admitted that legally, Bundy doesn’t have a leg to stand on. The Bureau of Land Management has been charging him grazing fees since the early 1990s, which he has refused to pay. Further, BLM has issued orders limiting the area on which Bundy’s cows can

Less than a minute into his speech at the Boston marathon bombing memorial on Tuesday, Vice President Joe Biden went tragically off script and told the crowd of Boston bombing survivors that "it was worth it."

Casual marijuana use may come with some not-so-casual side effects. For the first time ever, researchers at Northwestern University have analyzed the relationship between casual use of marijuana and brain changes – and found that young adults who used cannabis just once or twice a week showed significant abnormalities in two important brain structures. The study’s findings, to be published Wednesday in the Journal of Neuroscience, are similar to those of past research linking chronic, long-term marijuana use with mental illness and changes in brain development. Dr. Hans Breiter, co-senior study author, said he was inspired to look at the effects of casual

Although the Civil Rights Act, the landmark legislation which just reached its 50th anniversary, made great strides in desegregating the economy, economic discrimination is still widespread, and anti-discrimination legislation alone can never rectify the economic damage inflicted upon blacks by slavery and our Jim Crow apartheid regime. The Civil Rights Act was a mild reform, all things considered, but one conservatives fought with vigor and one many conservatives are still bitter about to this day. When the Civil Rights Act passed in 1964, the primary purpose was to root out discrimination in public accommodations (like hotels and movie theaters)
