Tiger Woods finishes runnerup at Valspar
Championship; Paul Casey wins by one

Associated Press, by Staff

Original Article

Posted By:Hazymac, 3/11/2018 11:22:52 PM

PALM HARBOR — Paul Casey closed with 6-under 65 and won the Valspar Championship at Innisbrook after watching Tiger Woods come up one putt short of a playoff. A highly charged PGA Tour event ended with one player ending a long victory drought – just not the one most fans came to see. Casey ran off three straight birdies early on the back nine to take the lead, and he closed with tough pars to finish at 10-under 274, one shot better than Woods and Patrick Reed. No one caught him, giving Casey his first PGA Tour victory since the 2009 Houston Open. Woods charged up the record crowd with a birdie putt from just inside 45 feet

Comments:
The PGA Tour, Valspar (the sponsor), and Innisbrook Resort have had a good week. Tiger was obviously the big story--and he didn´t disappoint, coming within a putt on the 72nd hole of making a playoff with Paul Casey. What happened to Patrick Reed on the last hole made me sick. But stuff happens, even to the best.

Tiger is back.

Paul Casey seems like one really nice guy. Good to see him win again. Tiger is starting to grow on me too. The Tiger comeback is simply amazing, assuming he stays on this trajectory, and I believe he will. The old farts have done well the last couple of weeks. The young guns are getting a wakeup call.

The way the headline is written... apparently finishing in second place is more important that actually WINNING.

Casey is slightly younger than Woods and broke many of TW´s collegiate records. He hit the PGA tour with great expectations but 9/11 came along. Casey made some poorly chosen comments about how stupid Americans are and he derailed his career.

He slunk off back to Europe and did well enough there but it took him years to face coming back here.

A great contrast between one with pathological confidence and one looking over his shoulder after every shot, two fantastic talents with very different careers.

Glad here the Woods didn´t win.

Today at the Valspar Open, Tiger Woods was entered. He finished second. Turning to the NCAA selections ...

Last night, I really had to dig to find out who won. The sports media really does only want to cover Eldrick. That´s the main reason I lost interest in the PGA years ago.

Always was a Phil fan, over Tiger. I know he is good for the game, and it is a nice story how he has overcome so much surgery to make it back.. and I wish him well. (It was good to see him smile a little.. maybe he has grown and learned the world does not revolve around him.)

I just don´t want him to be given the coverage like he is the second coming. No one wants to have someone shoved down their throats. It´s not fair to the other players or him, frankly.

I´m glad he didn´t win. I lived through the 24.7 world of Tiger the first time. Not looking forward to the slobberfest for a second time. I much prefer the Justin Thomas, Jordan Spieth, Ricky Fowler, et al group of young guns. And I don´t mind seeing Phil win from time to time either. And this coming from someone in his early 50s, not his early 20s.

I almost threw up when the sports announcer commented that the weather was better than it was supposed to be, then stated it must be Tiger´s doing. Yep, according to them, Tiger can control the weather.

Paul Casey, who I like, is the guy who got into a lot of trouble in 2004 for some anti-American comments, including an observation that "Americans don´t know what´s going on in the world" or something along those lines. The fallout was so bad that he had to seek counseling.

Then along came Barack Obama and the 2008 election, when Americans proved Paul to be right all along.

Federal court rules consumer
bureau structure unconstitutional
The Hill [Washington, D.C.], by Sylvan Lane    Original Article
Posted By: Hazymac- 6/23/2018 10:09:58     Post Reply
A federal district judge ruled Thursday that the structure of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) violates the Constitution, countering a January ruling from a federal appeals court. Judge Loretta Preska of the Southern District of New York ruled that the CFPB’s creation as an independent agency with a director that could only be dismissed for wrongdoing was unconstitutional. In January, the Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit ruled that the CFPB’s structure was constitutional, reversing a 2016 verdict issued by a panel of the court’s judges. The appeals court’s initial opinion, written by Judge Brett Kavanaugh, sought to

WASHINGTON -- UN Ambassador Nikki Haley told Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) that a UN report declaring that "contempt for the poor" is growing in America along with wealth inequality was “politically motivated” and “misleading.” After the initial report from United Nations´ special rapporteur on extreme poverty and human rights Philip Alston was issued earlier this month, Sanders and 19 other Democrats sent a letter to Haley urging that the administration take heed of the report and present an action plan to combat poverty. "We believe the massive levels of deprivation outlined in the report – as well as the immense suffering this

Iraq set for election recount amid fraud claims

BAGHDAD — Iraq´s Supreme Court on Thursday upheld a disputed law ordering a hand recount of the ballots from last month´s national elections after widespread allegations of fraud embarrassed political leaders and marred the initial result. What was supposed to mark the start of a new era for Iraq has turned into a political crisis as the charges of vote tampering grew too loud for Prime Minister Haidar al-Abadi´s government to ignore. The May 12 election was the first since Iraq declared victory over the Islamic State group, which was in control of one-third of Iraqi territory just three years ago. But

Supreme Court says warrant necessary

The US Supreme Court has ruled in favor of digital privacy. In a 5-4 decision on Friday the justices decided that police need warrants to gather phone location data as evidence for trials. The Supreme Court reversed and remanded the Sixth Circuit court´s decision. Carpenter v. United States is the first case about phone location data that the Supreme Court has ruled on. That makes it a landmark decision regarding how law enforcement agencies can use technology as they build cases. The court heard arguments in the case on Nov. 29. The dispute dates back to a 2011 robbery in Detroit, after which police

In The Consolation of Philosophy, the 5th Century Greek scholar and Roman Consul Boethius wrote: “Compare the length of a moment with the period of ten thousand years; the first, however miniscule, does exist as a fraction of a second. But that number of years, or any multiple of it that you may name, cannot even be compared with a limitless extent of time, the reason being that comparisons can be drawn between finite things, but not between finite and infinite.” Boethius’ insight into the nature of asymmetrical comparison is perennially valid, whether with respect to philosophical and theological speculation, mathematical

A Land O’ Lakes teen is recovering after being infected by something you may not expect: a caterpillar. A day of doing volunteer yard work on June 16 turned ugly when Logan Pergola’s arm brushed by an oak tree. “It just hurt like a small scratch," Logan told us. "Then all of the sudden, my arm went numb and I felt a burning pain." He looked down and saw a unlikely culprit: a small, furry caterpillar, later identified as a southern flannel moth. It’s also commonly called a puss caterpillar. His arm had simply brushed it when the venom went into

Tania Lavin is (or was, at last word) a fact-checker for the New Yorker. She achieved overnight Twitter-fame by accusing an ICE agent of being a white supremacist. The New York Post has the story: "A Harvard-educated fact-checker for the New Yorker is being excoriated by the Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency for “baselessly slandering” a Marine veteran — by falsely accusing him of having a Nazi tattoo, according to reports. (Snip) An obvious question is, what on God’s green Earth would cause anyone to think that the vaguely cross-like symbol on Gaertner’s elbow is a Nazi or white supremacist sign?

Every time you hear some young hip woke leftist at a technology company like Facebook telling you he needs to protect you from fake news, remember that what he´s saying is that you´re a knuckle-dragging Neanderthal who is too stupid to figure out that it´s okay for good people like Hillary to break the law. In fact, he´s saying the majority of Americans are too intellectually challenged to discriminate between fact and fiction. Historically, "common" folk were able to figure out that the National Enquirer´s stories about two-headed alien Elvis clones are fake and even that professional wrestling is staged.

It has been said a nation can have either welfare or open borders -- but not both -- in the same way one can have a cool air-conditioned room in a blazing desert or an open door -- but not both. It is the inequality between the outside and inside temperatures that the door is intended to preserve. The problem of keeping the room cool while leaving the door open is now consuming Angela Merekel´s European Union as the refugee problem grows in political size.

TAMPA — Loueita Hargens had known for years how her son Bradley Dykes would die. She had seen him cycle through drugs of choice, had lost track of the number of times he’d wound up in the hospital or prison. A recovering alcoholic herself, she cut him off several years ago. "If you want to talk, you can find me at an Alcoholics Anonymous meeting," the mother told her son. It finally happened in November: Dykes fatally overdosed on the synthetic opioid fentanyl. He was 46. Hargens was grief stricken but not shocked, and months later, another emotion has joined the mix. She hopes the federal prosecution of her

Wa Tiba was concerned about wild boars getting into her corn, planted about a half-mile from her house. When she hadn’t returned by sunrise Friday, her sister went to look for her.

Taxes: Whatever you think about the issue of taxing internet sales, the simple fact is that the Supreme Court has just guaranteed that people across the country will now be paying more in state taxes. It´s hard for us to see how this is good news. In its 5-4 decision on South Dakota v. Wayfair, the court overturned two previous rulings that prevented states from taxing sales of out-of-state companies. That meant a catalog company based in Maine didn´t have to navigate 45 state sales-tax laws to figure out how much each customer owed, and then remit that money to the

How´s this for sneaky? Sen. John McCain, not too long after seeking conservative and Republican votes in his failed 2008 bid for the presidency, went right after those same conservative voters without telling them, by egging on the IRS to ruin them. It´s the sort of political back-stabbing that defies belief, taking an active role in destroying the Tea Party, which was an authentic grassroots movement of local groups calling for smaller government. But sure enough, Judicial Watch has found McCain´s central role right there in the documents: Judicial Watch today released newly obtained internal IRS documents, including material revealing that Sen.

Former Fox News contributor George Will says voters must punish Republican “poodles” during the midterm elections to “quarantine” the president. An op-ed in Friday’s Washington Post by the long-time political pundit and conservative calls for voters to end the “carnage of Republican misrule” in Washington. Mr. Will claimed the “most telegenic example” of a need to oust Republicans exists with the administration’s “zero tolerance” policy regarding illegal immigrants along the U.S. southern border. “The Republican-controlled Congress, which waited for Trump to undo by unilateral decree the border folly they could have prevented by actually legislating, is an advertisement for the unimportance of
