Honoring the NFL and ‘Free Speech’

The State owned Media colludes with the NFL to make sure that the clowns players rights to FREE SPEECH is not impinged. We note how they always stood up for thin in the past.

IF you watch a game, think about how these players were treated for their Speech rights.

NFL History – Says it all

    • In 2012 the NFL had an issue with Tim Tebow kneeling for each game to pray, they also had an issue with Tebow wearing John 3:16 as part of his blackout to avoid glare and made him take it off.
    • In 2013 the NFL fined Brandon Marshall for wearing green cleats to raise awareness for people with mental health disorders.
    • In 2014 Robert Griffin III (RG3) entered a post-game press conference wearing a shirt that said “Know Jesus Know Peace” but was forced to turn it inside out by an NFL uniform inspector before speaking at the podium.
    • In 2015 DeAngelo Williams was fined for wearing “Find the Cure” eye black for breast cancer awareness.
    • In 2015 William Gay was fined for wearing purple cleats to raise awareness for domestic violence. (not that the NFL has a domestic violence problem…)
    • In 2016 the NFL prevented the Dallas Cowboys from wearing a decal on their helmet in honor of 5 Dallas Police officers killed in the line of duty.
    • In 2016 the NFL threatened to fine players who wanted to wear cleats to commemorate the 15th anniversary of 9/11.
    • So tell me again how the NFL supports free speech and expression all of a sudden….

Meet your Representatives!

If this doesn’t convince you that you need to vote new people into office, then there is no hope for change.

Climate Foibles

Stuff the NY Times and the Eco-nazis won’t tell you. MSNBC and CNN has no desire to publish anything of this sort. Rest assured WE shall.

October Arctic surprise: Rapid recovery of ice extent

  1. October Arctic Surprise: Rapid Recovery Of Ice Extent
    Ron Clutz, Science Matters, 7 October 2017 In recent years, October has seen some rapid recoveries of Arctic ice extents.  But this year may become something special.
    With the early onset of Siberian snow cover and the resulting surface cooling, ice is roaring back, especially on the Asian side. Consider the refreezing during the last 11 days through yesterday.
  2. Tony Abbott, Green Attacks And Ridley’s Paradox
    Paul Matthews, Climate Scepticism, 10 October 2017 Tony Abbott, former PM of Australia, gave the annual GWPF lecture on Monday night. Predictably, the talk has been attacked, thereby giving it lots of publicity, and equally predictably, there is no substance to the attacks.
  3. Green Activists Face Up To 21 Years In Prison As Judge Rejects Climate Change Excuse
    The New York Times, 10 October 2017 A lawyer for an environmental activist convicted of targeting an oil pipeline in North Dakota said he doesn’t think a judge’s decision disallowing the threat of global warming as a defense to justify the crime would be grounds for an appeal.
  4. Germany’s Green Caste System Contributed To Merkel’s Electoral Losses
    Daily Caller, 9 October 2017  The country’s hefty solar subsides have created a have and have-not type caste system in Germany, the report notes. Germany’s poorest citizens began joining ranks with Merkel’s chief political opponent after subsides caused electricity bills to skyrocket.
  5. Germany Set To Widely Miss Climate Targets, Environment Ministry Warns
    Clean Energy Wire, 11 October 2017 Germany’s environment ministry fears high emissions from coal-fired power plants and transport will make the country miss its 2020 climate targets by a wider margin than previously anticipated. The ministry’s warning adds further pressure to make fast progress on climate-related issues in upcoming talks aimed at forming a new government following September’s general elections.
  6. Obama’s Clean Power Plan Is Finally Getting The Axe. But Climate Skeptics Want More
    E&E News, 11 October 2017  The Trump administration today will officially announce the end of the Clean Power Plan, a regulation limiting planet-warming carbon dioxide emissions from power plants. But the conservative crowd that’s skeptical about climate change says its work is just beginning.
  7. CEI Analysis: EPA Proposes Clean Power Plan Repeal Rule
    Competitive Enterprise Institute, 9 October 2017 On Tuesday, October 10, Environmental Protection Agency Administrator Scott Pruitt is expected to release the agency’s proposed rule to repeal the Clean Power Plan (CCP). The CPP, which aims to reduce U.S. electric power sector carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions by 32 percent below 2005 levels by 2030, was the Obama administration’s marquee domestic climate policy and principal regulatory component of the U.S. emission-reduction pledge under the Paris Climate Accord. On Friday, October 6, someone leaked the repeal rule a few days before its official debut. In this post, I provide excerpts and offer commentary on the leaked document.

That wonderful but elusive “Radiant Future”

Ever since the Glorious October Revolution, the Liberals, Socialists, Communists, Progressives one and all have made promises of a future where everyone is equal, wise, well fed and comfortable. Of course in practice, it is only the elite that are living that life style.

Witness Uncle Bernie, the Savior of Vermont, who owns four houses and lives of the largess of the taxpayers. His wife managed to drive two colleges into fiscal turmoil one ending in bankruptcy and eventually dragging her into court on fraud charges. Some Radiant Future for those students. They received bupkis. But this Communist has grand visions for you and the Country, not just Vermont.

Uncle Bernie wants to have the grand SPHC, which Vermont Progressives already rejected as so expensive, the Progressives said they couldn’t afford it. California rejected it because they couldn’t afford it; they are a mental box of rocks when it comes to finances. He wants to lay it on Medicare/Medicaid so that the taxpayers get crushed.
Sen. Sanders cares not that Venezuela is trying the same crap that the Soviet Union and Cuba tried with the same results.

If you can’t get it to work in a Century, do you think it will work by trying for another 100 years?
Socialists have an enormous case of the STUPIDS.

Moms against everything

The rounds had barely stopped ricocheting before the Left set their hair on fire and began yowling for gun control. The following is illuminating.

Big Spenders

Is it time to sell your house and move before the city in which you live has a big yard sale and is foreclosed. Or they raise your taxes so high to pay off the unfunded pensions that you will never find a buyer dumb enough to even look at your mansion. Check this map for places to move and to avoid.

Which American Cities Will File Bankruptcy Next?

We harp on the massive, unsustainable, yet largely unnoticed, debt burdens of American cities, counties and states fairly regularly because, well, it’s a frightening issue if you spend just a little time to understand the math and ultimate consequences.  Here is some of our recent posts on the topic:

Luckily, for those looking to escape the trauma of being taxed into oblivion by their failing cities/counties/states, JP Morgan has provided a comprehensive guide on which municipalities haven’t the slightest hope of surviving their multi-decade debt binge and lavish public pension awards.

Cognitive dissonance

Tax cuts only

 

benefit big earners

If you aren’t making any money, you aren’t paying any income taxes. Now how in hell can a tax cut affect you? All the clangor and hollering about taxes is nothing but political BS to distract you from the real issue: Those clowns in DC aren’t doing anything to solve the deficit.

If they really want to help the lower and middle classes, they would get rid of the excessive fees and taxes on the phones, Internet, tires, textiles, Federal excise taxes on coffee liquor and tobacco. Get rid of the inheritance (death) tax.

As for the Income Tax, make it a flat 15% on all income including interest and dividends; no deductions for anything. Everybody pays the 15% big earners will pay more. Progressives don’t like it because it is FAIR.

No corporate tax; they don’t pay that anyway, you do. That is passed through to you as a cost of doing business. You pay that tax when you buy the product or service. You get their tax on income from money paid out as wages and not put into the business for expansion. The rest is paid out to stockholders as dividends; that is collected in their taxes.

Can you tell me why this cannot be accomplished? There isn’t any reason except recalcitrance on the part of the likes of Sens. McCain, Corker, Murkowski, Collins and Paul. Why are these individuals reelected again and again?

We know why the Democrats won’t vote to change the system. They don’t believe it is your money.
