Michael Sam falling off NFL draft boards
New York Post, by Howie Kussoy

Original Article

Posted By:LittleHoodedMonk, 5/5/2014 2:17:05 PM

After the big names are off the board in the NFL Draft, the biggest question may not be when Michael Sam will be picked, it may be whether Michael Sam will be picked at all. Despite being named the Defensive Player of the Year in the SEC, Sam’s underwhelming physical measurables and his lack of a defined role in defenses could prevent him from being the first openly gay player selected in the draft. In a Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel poll of 21 scouts, 12 said they wouldn’t draft Sam, while three said he should be taken in the fifth round, three said sixth round and three said seventh round. Seven of the scouts said they wouldn’t even sign

Comments:
Being gay means you may not play. At this time, no professional team needs the distraction from an unproven player. That is unless it increases the bottom line...more money for the owners. Don´t worry Michael, as "dumb" as you may have been to come out of the closet first, 0bama´s military will welcome you. s/o.

Slow and small is not something NFL scouts look to draft. Many of his stats came from 3 or 4 games.

It`s not that he is gay, it is that the team owners don´t want the media circus that will follow his selection. If Sam were to be selected, it would be because of his football ability, not that fact that he is gay. He should have kept his mouth shut. His sexuality has zero to do with playing football. Too bad he learned nothing in college. If he isn´t chosen, he´ll still be gay but won´t be a NFLer.

How far would a college player get if he announced he has an inborn desire to have sex with his sister or mother? Or with his father or pet? Or with prepubescent males ? All simply deviant sexual desires. Like homosexuality. Why is one labeled acceptable and others not? Shouldn´t those in love have the right to marry? Discrimination is wrong, isnt it? Why do only some people have the right to set the rules?

See what happens when you take modern liberalism to its logical end??

The teams know that if they draft him but later cut him they will be bashed to some degree by Sam and in the media. Who needs that?

Even so, some will take risks.

The physical statistics are more objective. He seems to just miss on several tests; there are no substitutes for speed, jump, etc.

That´s his misfortune but it happens to many, you aren´t owed what you want.

If NFL owners had a half a brain, which most don´t, they would avoid him totally. Learn from the Sterling situation. All you will need is one scout or assistant, or front office person making a remark when he gets cut and you will be a "homophobe". The guy is not qualified based on statistics - follow the numbers - which say pass.

Doesn´t sound like he is good enough. Should have kept his mouth shut though. No team wants the hassle drafting Sam would cost them. They would be under a microscope and the squealing would be deafening if they have to cut him. You could also have some locker room uneasiness if not outright hostility.

Just too much trouble for a marginal player.

Nevada’s largest daily newspaper is telling Sen. Harry Reid to “quit the race-baiting already” after he embarrassingly referred to Clarence Thomas as a white man. “Harry Reid is the da Vinci of distraction,” the Las Vegas Review-Journal wrote Friday. “The moment any scandal, policy failure or political defeat crashes down on him — and there have been plenty the past few years — the Senate majority leader unleashes outrageous rhetoric that’s better suited for a sandbox than what once passed for the world’s greatest deliberative body. “Worse, the Nevada Democrat has become especially fond of slinging race cards just to

   

 

  


 
DOJ investigates Norfolk

The U.S. Department of Justice has sent a member of its Community Relations Service team to investigate a Nebraska parade float that criticized President Obama. A Fourth of July parade float featured at the annual Independence Day parade in Norfolk sparked criticism when it depicted a zombie-like figure resembling Mr. Obama standing outside an outhouse, which was labeled the “Obama Presidential Library.” The Nebraska Democratic Party called the float one of the “worst shows of racism and disrespect for the office of the presidency that Nebraska has ever seen.” The Omaha World-Herald reported Friday that the Department of Justice sent

Vienna - After the United Nations Security Council agreed to a press statement on Saturday calling for a ceasefire between Israel and Hamas, the foreign ministers of its five permanent members— the United States, United Kingdom, France, Russia and China— gathered in Vienna on Sunday expecting to discuss the crisis. (Snip) "Iran has a longstanding record of supplying weapons, rockets, to various terror groups in Gaza, including Hamas," the US official said from Vienna. "Those rockets are being used to fire at civilian areas, and Iran has a responsibility to cease and desist from continuing to supply weapons in this conflict."

Partly blaming unrest in the Middle East on President Barack Obama, New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie said Saturday that Obama has not spoken firmly and forcefully on Israel´s behalf and that the country no longer trusts it has the full support of the United States because of him. The Republican governor´s remarks came as Israel targeted civilian institutions with suspected ties to the militant organization Hamas and declared it would step up its bombardment of northern Gaza. Israel says it is acting in self-defense against Hamas rockets. Christie cited the violence sparked by the deaths of three Israeli teenagers and said organizations like Hamas

Washington - The thousands of undocumented minors in U.S. detention facilities includes an unknown number of pregnant teenaged immigrants. The pregnant minors have been moved into longer-term shelters operated by the Department of Health and Human Services in order to provide federally funded health care. (Snip) The rush of children, many of whom are trafficked by drug cartels and other criminal organizations, has become not only a strain on the asylum process but a political nightmare for the Obama administration. It is unclear how many of the minors are pregnant and now in HHS custody, and HHS spokesman Kenneth Wolfe

US Muslims support Obama more
than any other religious group
New York Post, by Carl Campanile    Original Article
Posted By: LittleHoodedMonk- 7/12/2014 8:05:46 PM     Post Reply
Nearly three quarters of American Muslims like the job President Obama is doing — by far the largest backing of any religious group, a new survey released Friday reveals. The Gallup Poll, conducted from January through June, found that 72 percent of Muslims approve of Obama’s performance, compared to 55 percent of Jews, 44 percent of Catholics and 37 percent of Protesants. Mormons were least supportive — only 18 percent gave Obama a thumbs up and 78 percent offered a thumbs down. The Muslim support should not come as a surprise given Obama’s Muslim roots. Though a practicing Christian, Obama’s father, Barack Obama Sr.,

Nashville - Gov. Chris Christie said on Friday that the rush of unaccompanied minors across the U.S.-Mexican border is rooted in a “failure to act decisively in Washington” on immigration going “back to the Bush administration.” Christie would not say whether he thinks the children, who number in the thousands, should be deported. “I’m not going to get into all that,” he said. He called for action from President Obama and members of Congress, but did not elaborate on what response he believes should be taken to address the thousands of undocumented immigrant children now being housed at various government shelter

Nashville - New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie said Saturday that while same-sex marriage is “settled” in New Jersey, it’s not time for opponents to give up the fight. Speaking to reporters at the National Governors Association, Christie said it is not time for Republicans to drop the issue, which is entrenched in the party’s platform but contributes to the party’s difficulty with younger voters. “I don’t think that there’s going to be some major referee who’s going to say now it’s time to stop,” he said, referencing his own opposition to the unions. “Certainly I’m not going to, because these are opinions that I feel strongly about.”

I just want to say one word to you. Just one word: pot. Yes, it almost harks back to a classic scene in “The Graduate.” A growing number of schools offering courses in all things weed-related are trying to pull young people with the promise of newly created jobs in the booming medical marijuana field. The Northeastern Institute of Cannabis, in Natick, Mass., will start offering a 12-course program by September. Those who pay $1,500 for the privilege get a “cannabis industry certification.” To enroll, students must either have a high school diploma or a GED. Founded by marijuana activist Mickey Martin, the school is geared toward

But none of the news items mentioned above actually happened. Seven Israelis did not die in Zikim, instead it was five Hamas terrorists that died. No one was injured in Haifa, and Tel Avivians are still going to work, enjoying the beach and sitting at cafes, not locked in shelters. Night after night the popular Hamas TV

Sarah Palin wants to impeach Barack Obama. In an op-ed article published last week, the former Republican vice presidential nominee declared that the crisis on the southern border (where young illegal immigrants are being detained) "is the last straw that makes the battered wife say, ´No, mas´." The Republican Speaker of the House, John Boehner, thinks that´s loco. (Technically, he said, "I disagree".)

The couple, who own hundreds of acres of protected land in Shelburne Falls, about 100 miles west of Boston, have been opposed to the pipeline since the company notified them last winter of plans to survey their land. Through a spokesman, the couple said it was “astounding” that New England’s six governors support the proposal, which they said shows “disrespect for humans, flora and fauna.” Supporters of the $3.75 billion Northeast Pipeline Extension Project say it will provide
