TAMPA — His arrival on the Tampa Bay sports scene almost 20 years ago was not altogether heralded. In the eyes of some, it was barely even welcomed. Though he agreed to rescue the Tampa Bay Buccaneers from the clutches of the Hugh Culverhouse estate and offered to pay what was then a record $192 million for an NFL franchise, there was concern about Malcolm Glazers’ true intentions. To go along with his new team, Glazer wanted a new stadium - and he wanted the public to pay for most of it while he reaped most of the profits from

Comments:
Well, the Bucs´ winning the Super Bowl on January 26, 2003 makes up for a lot of heartache between 1976 and 2014. RIP, Mr. Glazer. You done good.

Maya Angelou dead: Celebrated author, poet,
dies at age 86 in North Carolina
New York Daily News, by Larry McShane    Original Article

Renaissance woman Maya Angelou, the award-winning writer, poet, actress and civil rights activist, was found dead Wednesday morning inside her Winston-Salem, N.C., home. The 86-year-old icon, who survived a childhood rape that left her mute to find a voice heard around the world, was discovered by her caretaker, according to an announcement from Wake Forest University. Angelou lived in an 18-room home on the campus, where she taught American Studies. The increasingly frail Angelou was battling heart problems, and recently canceled her appearance at an event in her honor scheduled for this Friday. The oft-lauded Angelou was set to received the

CLEARWATER — A gun battle outside the Hyatt Regency Clearwater Beach Resort and Spa — followed by a second shooting just down the street — on Memorial Day left visitors and business owners wondering whether the publicity would damage Clearwater Beach´s reputation as the family-friendly get-away. “I´m kind of concerned about the foot traffic and the tourism now,” Jessica Palmer, who sells tickets at Sea Screamer, which guarantees dolphin sightings during its boat tours, said Tuesday.“... so now if they hear there was a shooting they won´t want to bring their kids to the beach.” After the Hyatt shoot-out, the

President Obama unveiled his plan to return American troop levels in Afghanistan to the level they were during Bush’s term in 2003. (Snip) And yet the dangers mount, all Obama has to offer is what the Christian Science Monitor called a “half-full, half-empty Afghan plan”. Perhaps the better word is “half-assed”. A president who flies to Afghanistan on Memorial Day for what is essentially a photo-op; who is unable to meet to Afghan president and then announces a plan to leave 10,000 men in country — to do God knows what — ‘if the Afghans agree’ is thinking more like

CLEARWATER — Police charged four people after a series of shootings left Memorial Day revelers reeling at Clearwater Beach. At least two people were shot in the chaos, which spanned three shooting scenes. The first series of shootings appear to have started as a fight between two groups, one in the temporary parking lot north of the parking garage at the Hyatt Regency at 301 S Gulfview Blvd. and another on the corner of Coronado Drive and Second Street, Clearwater spokeswoman Joelle Castelli said. At some point during the fight, someone shot a gun. Later, someone went into the Hyatt

There’s something strange in the neighborhood. The ‘right-wing’ BJP has taken control of India. The ‘far-right’ UKIP has won a large share of Britain’s local councils. (Snip) The current woes of the left are being put down to style because naturally, by definition there can be nothing wrong with the ideology itself. If the left has any failings it must put it down to the pious observation that it hasn’t tried hard enough. A few more taxes, a tad more political correctness, a soupcon of additional fascism and surveillance and they would have made it. That’s the lesson for Next

We all know the Muslim world is a political and cultural disaster zone. All you need to know is the spectacularly low level of book sales in the Arab world, and a similarly miserable record in winning Nobel prizes, whether in literature or hard science. (Snip) Never mind a failed state; we’re talking about a failed civilization, even in the most culturally advanced Muslim domain, the Islamic Republic of Iran. The root of their failure is the War Against Fun. They’re not only failures, but grim, humorless failures. This is the miserable common denominator of the Muslim world. As Jonathan

I’m old enough to remember when only black people called black people “Uncle Tom.” Democrats, however, long expanded the category of who can play the race card and on whom. Call them equal opportunity race-card players. As with black race-card hustlers — say the Revs. Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton or any given host on MSNB-Hee-Haw — white race-card players label others “racist” for the crime of disagreement. As with black race-card hustlers, white race-card hustlers need not name names when accusing someone of “racism.” And, as with black race-card hustlers, the mainscream media will not bother to ask the white

What movie do you live inside of? (Snip) It is a fact that terrorist organizations rarely blow anything up without a video cameraman to record the proceedings, because believe it or not the real propaganda value of the outrage isn’t in the deed. It’s in the terrorist release and distribution, possibly the merchandising. The standard definition of abnormality used to be not knowing the difference between fantasy and reality. Today the only ones who are crazy are those who actually believe there’s a difference between the two. The facts are no defense any more. The same is true for the

Ed Schultz, who once referred to conservative talker Laura Ingraham as a "right wing slut," lost his terrestial radio show and will only be broadcasting via the internet from here on out. So what do you say after you´ve been fired? (Snip) So this is really for the best and it was his idea anyway. Does anything ever come out of this guy´s mouth that isn´t a lie? Schultz´s MSNBC show is hanging by a thread considering how often they´ve moved it around the last few years. Since no one watches anything on MSNBC anyway, you can´t really tell if

KHUMJUNG, Nepal — They came from six continents, each angling for a chance to reach the roof of the world. As harsh winter turned to spring, hundreds of climbers settled into what has become business as usual at the base camp below Mount Everest. There were yoga classes, mountaineering training sessions and, for some high-end climbers, cocktail hours as they waited to conquer nature and fear and death. A team from Google Inc. had arrived to collect "Street View" images, while a Hollywood film crew was there to shoot scenes for an action movie about the calamitous

Before the Law

Posted By: Hazymac- 5/22/2014 8:46:54 PM     Post Reply
The key difference between a profession based on human law and those founded on natural law is which system each obeys. Lawyers speak to the world of men. Doctors, engineers, scientists and mathematicians speak to the world of nature. Lawyers conjure before men to compel other men using human agents. Doctors use the laws of physics and chemistry to alter their patient’s conditions. They act through physics, chemistry and reality. Their agents are natural processes, not legal ones. (Snip) As Dr. Pollard notes, it won’t be over until medicine is practiced by lawyers and bureaucrats. And then things will be

If we were living in normal times, the following scandals and failures — without going into foreign policy — would have ruined a presidency to the point of reducing it to Nixon, Bush, or Truman poll ratings. Think of the following: the Fast and Furious scandal, the VA mess, the tapping of the communications of the Associated Press reporters, the NSA monitoring, Benghazi in all of its manifestations, the serial lies about Obamacare, the failed stimuli, the chronic zero interest/print money policies, the serial high unemployment, the borrowing of $7 trillion to no stimulatory effect, the spiraling national debt, the customary

Government Agency Scraps Employee

One government agency has decided that the results of employee ratings are too discriminatory, and eliminated the process entirely. The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau announced on Monday that it will now award all employees the highest rating regardless of performance reviews. The CFPB, which oversees transactions in the financial sector for the federal government, decided to no longer conduct employee reviews because there were just too many apparent “significant disparities” between the races, ages, and locations of its employees. According to American Banker, this new policy is set to cost over $5 million

First Lady Michelle Obama is moving to quell the revolt against the school meal nutrition standards that she helped set in place. House Republicans are supporting a measure that would allow some school districts to opt out of the standards—if they can prove that it is affecting their school budgets. In response, Michelle Obama is scheduled to meet with school leaders and experts on nutrition Tuesday to discuss the importance of federal regulation of school meals. The strict rules, passed in 2010, limit the amount of fat, calories, sugar, and sodium served during school meals and requires more whole grains. “Mrs. Obama will stress

Great lives, fully lived, cast long shadows. Fifty years after his death, it’s not unusual to hear people rank Douglas MacArthur among America’s worst generals—alongside Benedict Arnold and William Westmoreland. His critics say he was insubordinate and arrogant, callous in dealing with dissent, his Korean War command studded with mistakes. “MacArthur could never see another sun, or even a moon for that matter, in the heavens, as long as he was the sun,” once said President Eisenhower, who had served under MacArthur in the Pacific. Some of what the critics say is undoubtedly true, but much of what they say

The White House has launched an internal probe after its press office inadvertently outed the top CIA official in Afghanistan -- a national security blunder that could put that individual at risk. A spokeswoman with the National Security Council confirmed to Fox News that the White House chief of staff asked White House Counsel Neil Eggleston to “look into what happened” and make recommendations on “how the administration can improve processes and make sure something like this does not happen again.” The brief statement from the National Security Council was the first on-the-record comment made by the administration since the

Maya Angelou, a renowned poet, novelist and actress whose work defied description under a simple label, has died, her literary agent, Helen Brann, said Wednesday. She died at her home in Winston-Salem, North Carolina, Brann said. A professor, singer and dancer, Angelou´s work spans several professions. In 2011, President Barack Obama awarded her with the Medal of Freedom, the country´s highest civilian honor. She spent her early years studying dance and drama in San Francisco, but dropped out at age 14, instead becoming the city´s first African-American female cable car conductor. Angelou later returned to high school to finish her

Give Barack Obama credit. He never claimed he had the executive experience many Americans feel is essential for a president. Go back to October 2006. There was much buzz that Sen. Obama, newly arrived in Washington, would run for the White House. "You´ve been a United States senator less than two years, you don´t have any executive experience. Are you ready to be president?" the late Tim Russert asked Obama on NBC."Well, I´m not sure anybody is ready to be president before they´re president," Obama responded. "You know, ultimately, I trust the judgment of the American people." That didn´t exactly

Real estate mogul Donald Trump says he has no regrets about demanding President Obama’s records. ‘Not even a little bit,“ Trump said Tuesday at the National Press Club when asked if he regretted questioning Obama’s citizenship. “I don’t regret it. Why would I regret it?” Tuesday, Trump alluded to a promotional booklet revealed by Breitbart in May 2012 and produced in 1991 by Acton & Dystel that asserted Obama was born in Kenya. Miriam Goderich, who was an agency assistant at the time told Yahoo News that month that the claim amounted to a fact-checking error on her part. In

Zahra Billoo, the radical executive-director of CAIR’s San Francisco Bay Area chapter, tweeted that she “struggles with Memorial Day each year.” Billoo also retweeted radical comments from CAIR official Dawud Walid from Michigan and radical Islamist poet Remi Kanazi. The Clarion Project reported: The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), a group labeled by the Justice Department as a U.S. Muslim Brotherhood entity and unindicted co-conspirator in a terrorism-financing trial, disingenuously claims that it is a moderate organization. Yet, on May 23, Zahra Billoo, the radical executive-director of CAIR’s San Francisco Bay Area chapter, tweeted that she “struggles with Memorial Day each year” about whether

The State Department misplaced and lost some $6 billion due to the improper filing of contracts during the past six years, mainly during the tenure of former Secretary of State Hilary Clinton, according to a newly released Inspector General report. The $6 billion in unaccounted funds poses a “significant financial risk and demonstrates a lack of internal control over the Department’s contract actions,” according to the report. The alert, originally sent on March 20 and just released this week, warns that the missing contracting funds “could expose the department to substantial financial losses.” The report centered on State Department contracts

But beneath that icy surface was a passionate woman who needed the closeness of men every bit as much as her philandering husband Jack Kennedy needed other women, reveals a blockbuster new biography. And while it was widely reported that Jackie had an affair with Bobby Kennedy following Jack’s assassination in 1963, now it is disclosed for the first time that Teddy was having clandestine trysts with Jackie before and after Bobby was murdered.

This weekend we celebrate Memorial Day in honor of our American servicemen and women who have sacrificed their lives defending us both at home and abroad. Many of our troops enlist in the military upon adulthood and have served in wars before their classmates have even graduated from college. These men and women are true American heroes and we must protect them just as well as they protect us. Unfortunately, despite President Obama’s Memorial Day proclamation that we shall “never forget” the sacrifices of our soldiers, he and Secretary of State John Kerry have forgotten about a living American hero in
