Building An Empire:
Debating The Future Worth Of RGIII

CBS News [Washington, DC], by Candice Leigh Helfand

Original Article

Posted By:Howard Adams, 12/29/2012 9:44:11 PM

Robert Griffin III is not only taking the National Football League by storm, but the Washington Redskins rookie quarterback is already building himself a brand in the mold of Michael Jordan, LeBron James and Peyton Manning. To say Griffin’s play has been superb to date is selling him short. {Skip} “One advantage I believe he does have is the great education he received … and his military background and really strict upbringing,” he told CBSDC. “All of those things will really benefit him in the long run – [he is marketable] on and off the field.”

Comments:
There will be plenty on non-Redskins fans who become "RGIII fans". Let´s contrast the "cornball brother" quote by ESPN Sports analyst Rob Parker. "...He´s not one of us. He´s kind of black but he´s not really, like, the guy you want to hang out with because he´s off to something else."

The guy is marvelous (and a black Republican) but he is just one head shot away from being Colt McCoy.

RGlll is a conservative, black, Christian, super athlete and the polar opposite of black America and the libnut socialists.

He must not be allowed to harm their causes. Given time and circumstances, the media will begin to dismantle him.

He´s a champion in my eyes. And he isn´t pretending to be Abe Lincoln.

I know little of the sports world but, I can tell you what will happen. This seemingly model athlete will be hounded by the press, the sportscasters, the networks, and media as a pariah and anomaly. He has the moxy and self respect to know what is going on and I hope he crams it down their collective throat.

His running prowess will need to be reined-in a bit, sooner than later, before he incurs enough bodily damage from open-field hits to hobble his game (or enough concussions to end his career early).

The history of QBs with similar styles (like Michael Vick) demonstrates the need for him to transition into more of a pocket passer to survive the beating taken from bigger, faster NFL defenders.

What´s encouraging is that RGIII did that this past game, and he did it well. As a lifelong ´Skins fan, I´m thrilled to have him, and I hope he can stay around a long time.

The idiot Parker going off on this kid was a real blindside terd in a punchbowl for him. Parker is obviously a black purist and a poison to society.

I don´t know who remembers the Limbaugh flap when he worked for ESPN a while but he got fired for basically saying the NFL had a vested interest in a successful black QB.It turns out he was right as we´ve seen the last couple years as Vick has faded and Newton and Griffin have emerged.This episode was one of the weapons the left used against Limbaugh when he tried to be part owner in the Rams.Accoring to Limbaugh,Tom Jackson,another ESPN panelists threathened to quit if Limbaugh didn´t go,so bye,bye Limbaugh.

This just shows how the wrong kind of free speech can damage someone.If you don´t agree with the left when you´re supposed to,they will gnaw at you until you´re destroyed...

People like Parker would take Lebron James as a role model any day over RGIII which is a very sad commentary,given the lack of positive role models for all kids,not just black ones.

The A.J. Gaston Conference, which starts Monday in Birmingham, Ala., is a celebration of black history month with an emphasis on wealth creation and economic stability. Gaston, a black businessman who supported the end of legal segregation in Birmingham, is a great example of my tribe, the black bourgeoisie. While most of the country is celebrating the civil rights movement, which was defined by marching, forgiving, and nonviolence, this conference celebrates lessons of the black bourgeoisie who created communities, business institutions, organizations and private educational institutions that continue to enrich generations.

Three men charged with the robbery and homicide of a Washington & Jefferson College football player and the robbery and aggravated assault of his teammate appeared individually Friday morning in Washington County Court for their formal arraignments before Judge Edward Borkowski, who said the procedural hurdle starts the official clock ticking on each of their cases. A general charge of homicide includes first-, second- and third-degree murder, and potentially voluntary and involuntary manslaughter. The prosecution does not intend to seek the death penalty in the Oct. 4, 2012, killing of Tim McNerney, 21, of Butler.

During the ride, McCrea “leaned over to look at something on the phone and then he leaned in to kiss me,” White recalls.

When the main US federal emergency agency arrives at the scene of a disaster-hit area, one of the first places it turns to is the local Waffle House – and not just for its officials to grab a quick bite. Craig Fugate, the head of the Federal Emergency Management Agency, came up with the idea of the "Waffle House index" as an informal way of measuring the impact of a disaster. The chain, which has a large number of branches in tornado-prone areas, has a robust emergency management plan. The index has three levels.

Microsoft is preparing to reverse course over key elements of its Windows 8 operating system, marking one of the most prominent admissions of failure for a new mass-market consumer product since Coca-Cola’s New Coke fiasco nearly 30 years ago. “Key aspects” of how the software is used will be changed when Microsoft releases an updated version of the operating system this year, Tami Reller, head of marketing and finance for the Windows business, said in an interview with the Financial Times. Referring to difficulties many users have had with mastering the software, she added: “The learning curve is definitely real.”

The Columbus High School Mighty Cardinals had won the 4x100-meter relay--by seven yards, no less--and had a shot at the state championship. That was until Junior sprinter Derrick Hayes pointed to the sky. Hayes´s father, K.C., said that his son made a gesture of thanks to God, but raising a hand to the sky is considered excessive celebration according to the state scholastic rules. And with that, the team was disqualified.

France says 75 per cent
tax will apply to footballers
Agence France-Presse, by Henry Samuel    Original Article

France will lose its best footballers due to President François Hollande’s “crazy” 75 per cent tax on millionaire earners, the country’s football league warned on Tuesday, after a failed attempt by leading players to avoid the levy. The supertax, a key electoral promise, has already sent several Gallic public figures, including Gérard Depardieu, the actor, running for fiscal cover. The levy, which looked like it was going to be shelved, was revived last week by the Socialist president, who stipulated that companies, not individuals, will now foot the bill.

Denver - A popular hunting shotgun could be banned under one of the bills moving through the state Capitol. A pump or semi-automatic shotgun is the gun most hunters in Colorado use. It’s a gun state Sen. Greg Brophy, R-Wray, says could be banned under a bill that’s already passed the House and Gov. John Hickenlooper says he’ll sign. “They’re coming after the standard shotgun,” Brophy told CBS4 Political Specialist Shaun Boyd. Brophy says if Democrats succeed in passing a bill limiting large capacity magazines in Colorado, they’ll outlaw the most popular selling firearm for hunting.

NPR reports on a new federal cost-cutting move: Every month, the government sends out about 5 million checks to Americans who receive federal benefits. On March 1, the Treasury Department is making those paper checks a thing of the past. Since May 2011, all new Social Security recipients are required to get direct deposit of their benefits. Some 93 percent of all recipients now do. But there are still holdouts, so the Treasury Department started a campaign and a website, Go Direct, in an effort to convince the remaining 7 percent.

Chapel Hill, NC - Hopes for overhauling the federal tax system are fading in Washington, but in some state capitals, tax reform experiments - some far-reaching - are fast taking shape. Across the South and Midwest, Republicans have consolidated control of state legislatures and governorships, giving them the power to test long-debated tax ideas. Louisiana Republican Governor Bobby Jindal, for instance, called on Thursday for ending the state´s income tax and corporate taxes, with sales taxes compensating for lost revenue.

As part of its plan to reduce U.S. greenhouse gas emissions, the Obama administration is targeting the dairy industry to reduce methane emissions in their operations. This comes despite falling methane emission levels across the economy since 1990. The White House has proposed cutting methane emissions from the dairy industry by 25 percent by 2020. Although U.S. agriculture only accounts for about 9 percent of the country’s greenhouse gas emissions, according to the Environmental Protection Agency, it makes up a sizeable portion of methane emissions — which is a very potent greenhouse gas. Some of these methane emissions come from

After a disastrous presidential campaign in 2012, can Texas Governor Rick Perry mount a credible bid for the White House in 2016? Texas Governor Rick Perry is currently on a media tour touting the theme that America is a great place for second chances, specifically second chances for Texas governors with national ambitions. Perry is trying to erase the memory of his disastrous 2012 GOP presidential campaign which included “brain-farts” and “oops” debate moments with his folksy, charming, and uniquely American manner. Curious about Perry’s comeback strategy, I asked Texan and GOP presidential media guru, Mark McKinnon and he said,

Ann Furedi, of BPAS, said the law does not prevent women from choosing a termination on the grounds of gender and she even compared it to abortion after rape. Mrs Furedi´s comments come weeks after it was disclosed that the CPS had decided not to prosecute two doctors who were exposed by a Daily Telegraph investigation arranging terminations purely because the unborn baby was a girl. A group of 50 MPs, drawn from across the party divide, then wrote to this newspaper warning that the decision was a “step back in the fight for gender equality” and effectively changes the law without

A startling rift appeared Tuesday on the Supreme Court as the three female Justices came out swinging like Brunnhildes — women warriors — for what they erroneously labeled an “entitlement” to employer-provided contraceptives and morning-after pills. The Justices were hearing oral arguments in Sebelius v. Hobby Lobby Stores, Inc., a case hyped by the Democratic Party as a test for women’s rights. Justices Kagan, Ginsberg, and Sotomayor sprang on Hobby Lobby’s attorney , interrupting his every sentence and pummeling him with questions taken right out of the Democratic Party’s “war on women” playbook.

President Obama marveled at the sheer size of the Colosseum during a private sightseeing tour Thursday night in Rome. "This is bigger than some current baseball stadiums," Obama told reporters, noting the size exceeded Wrigley Field in his hometown of Chicago. "I have to check on what it seats. It´s remarkable. Unbelievable." The amphitheatre, located in central Rome, was constructed between 70 and 80 A.D., and was estimated to hold between 50,000 and 80,000 spectators. The Colosseum was home to gladiator battles and animal hunts during the Roman Empire. Obama walked along a platform running through the center of the

The past couple of weeks have marked a turning point in American ugliness as the mob has turned its full fury on first lady Michelle Obama. From criticism of her trip to China to a recent “tell-all” by former White House assistant press secretary Reid Cherlin in the New Republic about Obama’s allegedly tyrannical behavior, the gloves have been removed. As described, she was a perfectionist — super-attentive to detail and laser-focused on advance planning. And this is bad because? Worse, according to a former (anonymous) staffer, there was no barometer for meeting Obama’s high standards. “The first lady having

President Obama said Pope Francis did not raise Obamacare “in detail” when they met on Thursday, but that in a separate meeting with the Vatican’s secretary of state “we discussed briefly the issue of making sure that conscience and religious freedom was observed in the context of applying the law.” At a joint press conference with Italian Prime Minister Matteo Renzi, Obama also acknowledged that he differs with the Vatican’s stance on some issues, but added that he “heartily” agrees with most of its positions.

Only "mere scraps of data documented" Barack Obama´s mother´s "days in Seattle," writes Obama biographer David Maraniss in his 2012 Barack Obama: The Story. Incidentally, Maraniss was telling the truth: Ann´s "days in Seattle" weren´t mentioned in Dreams from my Father and were only vaguely implied in Maraniss´s lengthy 2008 article. And it appears that the only "scraps" of evidence of Obama´s mother´s time in Seattle during 1961-1962 was a listing in a Seattle Polk directory and a University of Washington (UW) transcript.
