Obama: Tough call on
letting a son play football

Associated Press, by Staff

Posted By:NorthernDog, 1/27/2013 10:17:51 AM

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.

Of course he wants to kill it.

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.

A few weeks ago, I wrote about how the sweeping acceptance of gay marriage in recent years is owed in large part to Christianity. Rejecting the rigidly hierarchical and stratified societies of the ancient world, Jesus Christ taught the equal dignity of all persons, proclaimed that the meek shall inherit the earth, and declared that the last shall be first and the first shall be last. The Western world has been working out the logic of these subversive teachings ever since, with the institutional transformation of marriage being the latest, though surely not the last, example of its social, moral,

Ukraine´s acting Foreign Minister Andriy Deshchytsya said this morning that the likelihood of war between his country and Russia is growing as Russian troops continued to seize Ukrainian military bases in the annexed Crimea region. Mr. Deschchytsya told ABC that "we don´t know what (Russian President Vladimir) Putin has in his mind... that´s why this situation is becoming even more explosive than it used to be a week ago."

At least 59 people have died in Guinea following the outbreak of deadly flesh-eating virus Ebola. The first cases of the haemorrhagic fever were spotted late last month. With no known cure or vaccine, health ministers have warned people to stay inside while they try to stop it spreading. Symptoms include internal and external bleeding, vomiting and diarrhoea. It is spread by personal contact and kills 25-90 per cent of those infected. ´In Guinea, a country with a weak medical infrastructure, an outbreak like this can be devastating,´ the Unicef representative in Guinea, Dr. Mohamed Ag Ayoya, said in a

Shifts in rainfall, not warming

OSLO - Heavy rains from the Amazon to Australia have curbed sea level rise so far this century by shifting water from the oceans to land, according to a study that rejects theories that the slowdown is tied to a pause in global warming. Sea level rise has been one of the clearest signs of climate change - water expands as it warms and parts of Greenland and Antarctica are thawing, along with glaciers from the Himalayas to the Alps. But in a puzzle to climate scientists, the rate slowed to 2.4 millimeters (0.09 inch) a year from 2003 to

According to experts, a hard line is north of a red line, but south of the “unbelievably small strikes” that Kerry is fond of. It’s not clear what will happen when the “hard line” is crossed. It may involve… 1. A phone call from John Kerry to anyone in Russia who still takes his calls for laughs warning that Russia is on “the wrong side of history.” 2. Sanctions against the Deputy Under-Governor of Southern Siberia 3.

What if the missing Malaysia

WELLINGTON, New Zealand — The plane must be somewhere. But the same can be said for Amelia Earhart´s. Ten days after Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 disappeared with 239 people aboard, an exhaustive international search has produced no sign of the Boeing 777, raising an unsettling question: What if the airplane is never found? Such an outcome, while considered unlikely by many experts, would certainly torment the families of those missing. It would also flummox the airline industry, which will struggle to learn lessons from the incident if it doesn´t know what happened. While rare nowadays, history is not short of

A pair of potentially catastrophic cases will be argued before the Supreme Court on Tuesday. These cases are brought by privately held, for-profit corporations that are arguing their religious convictions should preclude them from offering employees the health insurance required by law. Specifically, these private employers don’t want to allow their employees’ insurance to cover some forms of birth control because, contrary to medicaland scientific evidence, they believe some birth control causes abortions.

WASHINGTON — Mitt Romney said Sunday that President Barack Obama is naive when it comes to Russia, has shown "faulty judgment" about Moscow´s intentions and could have done more to try to deter its annexation of Crimea. The 2012 Republican presidential nominee said Obama didn´t have the foresight to anticipate Russia´s moves and should have been working earlier with allies to make clear the penalties that Russia would face if it moved into Ukraine. Romney did acknowledge that such steps may not have been enough though to hold back Russia President Vladimir Putin. "Had we communicated those things, there´s always
