United Press International, by Staff

Posted By:JoniTx, 2/10/2013 3:27:16 PM

FORT WORTH, Texas- A Texas teen got a big check at the annual junior livestock sale, earning $20,895 for his steer, the 278th animal shown of 283 at the sale, officials said. Members of the Stock Show Syndicate, a group of Fort Worth-area business professionals that raises millions of dollars for the annual Sale of Champions, bought the steer from 14-year-old Wyatt Blaylock, after they learned his father died of brain cancer last year, the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reported Saturday. "I don´t know what to say," said Blaylock, from Adkins, a small town south of San Antonio.

That´s how they roll in the Lone Star State. I lived there ten years and miss every day apart. Friendly, caring, conservative. In my neighborhood here in Michigan i wave to cars that drive past as I walk my dog. People ask me why I do that and I explain that in Texas, it would be bad manners not to wave. No surprise that they are helping this kid out. Think he´ll be an Aggie-lol.

I always enjoy seeing those kids get big bucks for their animals. And there are always tears because they know their animal is headed for a dinner table.

#1 was teasing. Steers don´t go to stud, but sometimes they are just put out to a nice, restful pasture.

Johnny Football, meet Wyatt "Johnny Paycheck" Blaylock...

That 14 year old kid already makin´ more money than you are...
´cept when you visit a casino, I guess.

Given Hillary´s record with cattle futures, where she made a small fortune with zero
experience, and no errors...

Will the NCAA investigate Johnny´s casino visits to see if he "won" big money as a
form of payment by a booster?
Guess he ain´t too worried about it if he´s posting his own pics in his Tweets...

I´m not against Johnny Football, he´s great to watch...
Just a train of thought regarding sudden cash winnings...
Hope it twarn´t rigged.

Rep. Gloria Negrete McLeod´s announcement Tuesday that she won´t seek reelection to her Inland Empire seat is likely to set up yet another internecine fight in a state that already has many. The Chino Democrat will leave Washington after just one term and run instead for a seat on the San Bernardino County Board of Supervisors, opening the door to others of her party, who might not have challenged her. Those could include the congressman she defeated in 2012, Joe Baca. Because of that, her choice also has the potential to shake up the field in the race for a

The marketable debt of the U.S. government has more than doubled--climbing by 106 percent--while President Barack Obama has been in office, increasing from $5,749,916,000,000 at the end of January 2009 to $11,825,322,000,000 at the end of January 2014, according to the U.S. Treasury´s latest Monthly Statement of the Public Debt. During the eight-year presidency of George W. Bush, the marketable debt of the U.S. government almost doubled--climbing 93 percent--from $2,977,328,000,000 at the end of January 2001 to $5,749,916,000,000 at the end of January 2009.

After President Obama knocked art history majors last month in off-the-cuff remarks, Dr. Ann Johns, an art history professor at the University of Texas, decided to send the president a message defending the work of art history professors and students. “It’s a changed discipline and I think in many ways it does prepare students very well for a complex global world,” Johns, a senior lecturer in the Department of Art and Art History, told ABC News today about the note she submitted to the president on the White House website. “Perhaps the idea of just going and looking at nice

In a speech marking the five-year anniversary of his $831 billion economic stimulus plan, President Barack Obama said on Tuesday that his plan, passed one month into his presidency, succeeded and that his critics were proven wrong and "have had to eat those words." Obama also touted his auto bailout and green energy initiatives as major successes. "Anybody who had dire predictions for the auto industry and said, ´We couldn´t do it. Manufacturers couldn´t bring jobs back to America.´ Every time they say that, they are proven wrong," said Obama. Obama added, "Anybody who says we can´t compete when it comes

Fires lit up central Kiev as Ukraine’s security forces launched an assault on protest camps in the heart of the capital after a day of bloodshed that claimed 18 lives. [Video] A long-feared attack on the demonstrators who have occupied central Kiev since December appeared to have begun on Tuesday evening. The interior ministry announced the onset of an “anti-terrorist” operation after setting a deadline of 6pm local time for the protests against President Viktor Yanukovych to end. Afterwards, central Kiev was sealed off and the metro closed down. Specialist riot police armed with assault rifles closed on Independence Square,

Congressional budget office: Minimum
wage hike raises income for
over 16.5M but cost 500K jobs
Associated Press, by Alan Fram    Original Article
Posted By: JoniTx- 2/18/2014 4:04:46 PM     Post Reply
WASHINGTON— Boosting the federal minimum wage as President Barack Obama and congressional Democrats are proposing would increase earnings for more than 16.5 million people by 2016 but also cut employment by roughly 500,000 jobs, Congress´ nonpartisan budget analyst said Tuesday. In a report containing ammunition for both supporters and opponents of the Democratic election-year proposal, the Congressional Budget Office said gradually raising the minimum from $7.25 hourly to $10.10 would lift 900,000 people above the federal poverty level by 2016. That is out of 45 million who would otherwise live in poverty without an increase. But the analysis also noted

New Jersey is in a pickle as a rule of the high seas shuts off the flow of salt to keep roads clear. State officials are now being forced to turn to a briny pickle juice-like mixture as an alternative to de-ice the roads, while racing to get a federal waiver that is currently holding up a 40,000-ton shipment of rock salt. The salt is sitting at a port in Maine, docked until New Jersey officials obtain a federal waiver. Once that is done, it will take two days to ship the load from Maine to Newark. The shipment is

Controversial Nordic farms

Oslo- Fur has made a comeback on the world´s most important catwalks, fostering a thriving industry in the Nordic region to the dismay of animal rights activists. In the 1990s, supermodels like Claudia Schiffer, Cindy Crawford and Naomi Campbell posed in the buff for People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) under the slogan "I´d Rather Go Naked Than Wear Fur" -- part of initiatives that helped make fur politically incorrect. Two decades later, mink and fox fur have become regulars in the most prestigious fashion shows. According to www.fashionista.com, 70 percent of designers used fur in their fall-winter

Drivers ticketed for failing to

A new law requiring motorists to remove snow and ice from their vehicles has become a new source of revenue for Connecticut. State police are aggressively ticketing drivers who ignore the so-called ´ice missile´ law. Since the law took effect Jan. 1, state police have issued at least 230 tickets to truckers and motorists who were driving snow-covered vehicles. At $120 per summons that amounts to $27,600 in tickets in a month and a half. The fine is $75, plus $45 in various surcharges.

The Obama administration will attempt to resume talks with the Taliban to free the only known American soldier in captivity in exchange for the release of Taliban prisoners held at the U.S. detention facility in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba. The move is an attempt to free Army Sergeant Bowe Bergdahl before the majority of US forces leave Afghanistan by the end of 2014, the report in the Washington Post said, citing current and former officials. The swap would trade Bergdahl for five Taliban members who would be released from Guantanamo Bay into protective custody in Qatar, the Post reported.

President Obama on Tuesday announced he was ordering his administration to develop a set of new fuel efficiency standards for trucks, buses and other heavy-duty vehicles. Obama did not detail specific targets for heavy-duty vehicles, but said he expected a draft proposal by March of next year and for the rule to be implemented by 2016. While heavy-duty trucks and buses represent just 4 percent of the vehicles on the road, they generate 20 percent of the nation’s vehicular carbon pollution. “We want trucks that use less oil, save more money, and cut pollution,”

Why Hillary Clinton´s past is
fair game in presidential race

There´s a debate going on about Hillary Clinton´s past. If she runs for president in 2016, should Republicans reach back to the scandals of her years as First Lady? Or should they focus on more recent times, especially her tenure as Secretary of State, to build a case against her? The GOP doesn´t have to choose. Of course Clinton´s recent experiences are relevant to a presidential run. But so are her actions in the 90s, the 80s and even the 70s. It´s not ancient history; it reveals something about who Clinton was and still is. And re-examining her past is entirely consistent with practices in recent campaigns. In the 2012 presidential race,

America’s Founding Fathers fiercely held to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness—values which Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) claimed align seamlessly with Obamacare. Pelosi explained why the law is “very sound policy” during a press conference Friday: To go to back to our founders once again, they sacrificed it all for life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. This law, the affordable care act, is about a healthier life, the liberty to pursue your happiness. That is solid policy, and the mandate is central to that. This argument should be added to the montage of lies being promulgated by the Obama

Geraldo Rivera got remarkably candid in a conversation with The Blaze’s Will Cain about his desire not to outlive his own fame. He even admitted that part of the reason he’s been to dangerous places like Libya and Iraq is because he’s “been looking to get killed in action for years.” Rivera said he doesn’t want to be one of those guys who, when they die, everyone will point out how great they used to be, and that’s why he stays engaged. And, in addition to that, he likes having a little bit of danger in his life: “I want to die with

The weirdest thing about John Kerry´s weekend speech on climate-change—other than the fact that this is the same guy who in 1997 voted to forbid the U.S. from signing the Kyoto Protocol—is that it begins by quoting something Maurice Strong said at the U.N.´s 1992 Earth Summit in Rio de Janeiro: "Every bit of evidence I´ve seen persuades me that we are on a course leading to tragedy." Maurice who? Mr. Strong, a former oil executive from Canada (he was Pierre Trudeau´s pick to run state-owned Petro-Canada in the mid-1970s), was for many years the U.N.´s ultimate mandarin.

U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry spent part of his Sunday in his stocking feet at an Indonesian mosque, at one point beating a huge drum used to call Muslims to prayer.

Former Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney on Sunday warned his party not to highlight the Monica Lewinsky scandal when attacking possible Democratic White House frontrunner Hillary Clinton, saying to keep attention instead on Clinton´s record. "I don´t think Bill Clinton is as relevant as Hillary Clinton if she decides to run for president,” Romney said on NBC´s “Meet the Press,” adding that the former first lady “has her own record and her own vision."

Freshman Senator Ted Cruz says many things that need to be said and says them well. Moreover, some of these things are what many, if not most, Americans believe wholeheartedly. Yet we need to remember that the same was true of another freshman Senator, just a relatively few years ago, who parlayed his ability to say things that resonated with the voters into two terms in the White House. Who would disagree that if you want your doctor, you should be able to keep your doctor? Who would disagree with the idea of a more transparent administration in Washington, or

President Bill Clinton donated his papers from his tenure as Arkansas governor to the Central Arkansas Library System (CALS) in 2003, and they are housed at the Butler Center for Arkansas Studies in Little Rock.
