NFL says it´ll meet with
tribe about Redskins name

Associated Press, by Howard Fendrich

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 10/7/2013 10:18:33 PM

WASHINGTON- The NFL is prepared to meet with an Indian tribe pushing for the Washington Redskins to drop the team´s nickname. Just not this week. As league owners gathered Monday in the nation´s capital for their fall meetings, the Oneida Indian Nation held a symposium across town to promote their "Change the Mascot" campaign. Oneida representative Ray Halbritter said the NFL was invited to attend. Instead, NFL spokesman Brian McCarthy said, a meeting has been scheduled for next month - and could happen sooner. "We respect that people have differing views," McCarthy said.

I agree with Iowahawk that Washington Redskins is offensive. He suggests the name be changed to the Crapville Redskins.

The tribal leaders must have taken one of those Jesse Jackson online correspondence courses- Extortion 101.

I´m sticking with the Washington Pigskins.

When the Injuns integrate into our society and off their...reservations, then maybe they can have the juice to make laws or even suggestions on our side of the "red" line in the sand.

I swear if I had the money, I´d buy the team (or any team) and change the name to the "Red Injun Savages" just for the fun of it.
I would then demand that anyone who wants the name changed pay $ 1,000 a piece to fund a survey of each and every "Native American" to see how they feel about it . . . But that´s just me.

I´m Cherokee and the Oneida don´t speak for me. I´m more concerned with Washington. The mascot name doesn´t really offend anybody; underlying every politically correct argument is someone wanting something that they are too lazy to earn.

Keep the name. And require that their cheerleaders be known as the squaws. The sports nickname that I find the most offensive is the San Diego Chargers. I pay cash. The Washington Teleprompters just won´t do.

Since only a certain group of people can use the "n" word I suggest only fans can use the word Redskins. All others should refer to them as the R word team.

If you´re named Redskins you´re racist. If you´re not named Redskins you hate Indians, so you´re racist.

This is a rigged game only the Left can win, so it´s better to just not play at all. The more "racists" the Left can create, the better for them.

Jersey´s Foreclosure Crisis?
New Jersey Spotlight, by Joe Tyrrell    Original Article
Posted By: JoniTx- 4/22/2014 12:21:38 PM     Post Reply
The Garden State has the country´s highest percentage of foreclosures among mortgaged homes -- and that´s just the beginning. Early this year, banking and real-estate analysts concluded that New Jersey had achieved a dubious distinction, passing Florida to become the state with the highest percentage of foreclosure among mortgaged homes, 6.2 percent as calculated by CoreLogic, a leader in real-estate analytics. (That percentage was actually an improvement from a year earlier.) Meanwhile, Florida’s rate dropped to 6 percent from 10.1 percent in 2012, and housing markets around the country are recovering far faster from the Great Recession. New Jersey also

It may not be tomorrow, but Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) says "something will happen" to force a Nevada rancher to obey a court order to stop grazing his cattle on federal land and pay his grazing fees. "It´s obvious that you can´t just walk away from this," Reid said in an April 18 interview with a Nevada´s KSNV-TV News 3 program “What’s Your Point?” "You can´t have a law that is -- we´re a nation of laws, not of men and women," he said.

The best feast ever? A Florida fisherman caught a record-setting 805-pound shark earlier this month, and then celebrated by barbecuing the 11-foot mako and devouring it with friends. "It was really good," Joey Polk told the Daily News on Monday. "It´s not real fishy. It does not have a real gamy, fishy taste." Polk caught the mako off the Florida Panhandle with the help of two cousins. The feat is recognized by the International Land-Based Shark Fishing Association as the largest mako catch ever, he said.

The Supreme Court has upheld a ban on using race in admissions to Michigan´s public university. The court was divided on the case, which overturns a 6th Circuit Court decision. The opinion, written by Justice Anthony Kennedy, says the case is not about race admissions policies but about whether voters in a state can choose to prohibit consideration of racial preferences. "The plurality opinion stresses that the case is not about the constitutionality or the merits of race conscious admission policies in higher education. Rather, the question concerns whether and in what manner voters in a state may chose to

Former Republican presidential candidate Bob Dole weighed in on his party’s likely 2016 contenders recently, and concluded that some of the most talked-about names just aren’t ready yet. In a new interview with the Wichita Eagle, Dole calls out Ted Cruz and Rand Paul specifically to say they lack the experience to run in 2016. He takes a few shots at Obamacare too, calling the rollout a “disaster” and casting serious doubt on the administration’s claims they successfully enrolled 7 million people, while charging that Democrats don’t get nearly the kind of blame Republicans do for partisan gridlock and congressional

FREEHOLD — A family is suing a New Jersey school district, contending that the phrase "under God" in the Pledge of Allegiance is discriminatory toward atheist children. The lawsuit against the Matawan-Aberdeen Regional School District was filed in state court last month and announced Monday by the American Humanist Association. The group says the phrase, added in 1954, "marginalizes atheist and humanist kids as something less than ideal patriots." The anonymous plaintiffs say those two words violate the state constitution. But school district lawyer David Rubin says the district is merely following a state law that requires schools to have

This is a column about the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey, but you won’t read a word in here about the lane-closing scandal in Fort Lee, N.J. This is about another scandal, one that has been going for on so long that people don’t even think of it as scandalous. Indeed, it involves no illegality whatsoever. But that doesn’t mean it isn’t a scandal. The Port Authority is supposed to manage — and improve — important parts of the transportation infrastructure of New York and New Jersey: airports like John F. Kennedy Airport, bridges like the George Washington

U.S. Conducts Spy Flight Over Russia

After a t*t-for-tat series of delays, the United States conducted an Open Skies Treaty intelligence flight over Russian territory on Monday, a State Department official said. The spy flight originally was scheduled for April 14 but was canceled by Russia after a U.S. team for the flight failed to arrive near Moscow on time and Moscow refused temporarily to reschedule it. A Russian Foreign Ministry spokesman also expressed anger on Monday over U.S. delays in certifying a new high-tech Russian aircraft to be used for spying missions over the United States under the Open Skies Treaty that permits limited legal

Clemency for Drug Offenders

Disguised as Pardon Power

Attorney General Eric Holder announced today that dozens of lawyers will be reassigned to the Justice Department’s pardon office in anticipation of a surge of applications from drug offenders for reductions in their sentences — applications the Obama administration has signaled it would look upon favorably. This exercise is another transparent usurpation of legislative power by the president. The pardon power is just the camouflage for it. The pardon power exists so that the president can act in individual cases to correct excesses and injustices. It is not supposed to be a vehicle by which presidents rewrite congressional statutes that

Over half of the 221,604 Georgia Obamacare "enrollees" the Obama administration claims as enrollments have not paid for their plans, thereby leaving them still uninsured. Georgia Insurance Commissioner Ralph Hudgens says only 107,581 Georgians have paid for coverage. "Many Georgians completed their application process by the deadline, but have yet to pay for the coverage," Hudgens said in a statement.Hudgens also said that insurance department estimates that 400,000 Georgians may lose their current health insurance coverage because of Obamacare. According to the New York Times, 20% of the individuals whom the Obama

In the budget proposal he presented to Congress last month, President Barack Obama called for what would be the highest level of sustained taxation ever imposed on the American people, according to the analysis published last week by the Congressional Budget Office. Under Obama’s proposal, taxes would rise from 17.6 percent of Gross Domestic Product in 2014 to 19.2 percent in 2024. During the ten years from 2015 to 2024, federal taxation would average 18.7 percent GDP. America has never been subjected to a ten-year stretch of taxation at that level.

The Obama administration is poised to entertain a flood of new clemency applications from thousands of federal prisoners who were given harsh sentences under mandatory-minimum laws following drug convictions, Attorney General Eric Holder said Monday. Holder said in a short videotaped statement that he wants to shrink the federal prison population by a modest amount while ensuring ´that those who have paid their debts have a chance to become productive citizens.´ At the center of the move is a set of old sentencing rules that punished crack-cocaine offenders with more time behind bars than users or traffickers of powder cocaine.

If Jeb reaches for the nomination, there will be a titanic battle between the party establishment and the Tea Party. Steve Schmidt, McCain’s strategist in 2008, insists that in the end Republicans usually settle on the most electable candidate. To get by, this Bush may be forced to trim his positions, although the cautionary tale of Romney suggests that he would have to tack artfully and carefully for the sake of the general election. Certainly he will have the resources to outlast, discredit, and disqualify his rivals.

Washington - Michelle Obama said "splurging is the key to life" if you regularly eat right and stay active. Her biggest guilty pleasure: French fries. "How would you appreciate vegetables if you never had chocolate?" she asked. "You couldn´t live without a little chocolate, a little French fries." The first lady took questions from children reporters Monday after appearing at the White House Easter Egg Roll. She told the children that if they eat right the majority of the time, then a splurge or snack is not going to hurt them. "I still splurge when I can, but that's why I try to exercise almost every day," she said.

Global sea levels have risen by 8 inches (20cm) since 1880 and scientists predict they could rise up to 3ft (98cm) by 2100. But despite the UN’s recent threats of war, famine and extreme weather, such a dramatically different world caused by sea level rise can be hard to imagine. To help picture the future, Martin Vargic, an amateur graphic designer from Slovakia, has created a map depicting the planet with sea levels around 260ft (79m) higher than they are today. He imagines what Earth would look like if the ice sheets surrounding the North and South poles melted, releasing

Former Sen. Bob Dole (R-Kan.) said a number of junior GOP senators considering a presidential run in 2016 do not yet have the experience — specifically naming Rand Paul (Ky.), Marco Rubio (Fla.) and Ted Cruz (Texas). The former 1996 GOP presidential candidate sounded particularly skeptical of Cruz in an interview this week with The Wichita Eagle. "A number of the younger members, first-termers like Rand Paul, Rubio and that extreme-right-wing guy, Ted Cruz — all running for president now. I don´t think they´ve got enough experience yet," Dole said. The 90-year-old former senator said, however, his main concern about 2016 is living

Harry Reid isn’t backing down from his claim that rancher Cliven Bundy’s supporters are “domestic terrorists.” It’s astonishing rhetoric given the White House’s characterization of the mass shooting by a genuine terrorist, Major Nidal Hasan, who killed 13 Americans at the Fort Hood Army base after yelling “Allahu Akbar!” (God is great.) Rather than labeling Hasan’s actions “domestic terrorism,” the Obama administration is prosecuting him for having committed “workplace violence.” Democratic rhetoric is become ever more desperate and overheated as we approach the November midterm elections.

Perhaps the most remarkable feature of American democracy is the magnificent estate of public land that it reserved from the very beginning for the use of all citizens, rich or poor. There is nothing like it in the democracies of Europe, which came into being with nations already carved up into private fiefdoms.
