    Default NFL Rejects Offer To Support Obamacare

    It's such a shame that in the USA, defending Liberty has become such a heroic deed.

    Being a pastime rather than a sport seems to be working to baseball's advantage at the moment. I am mostly disgusted by the Gladiator complexes on display in football and basketball...

    Should not be a surprise that republicans want to keep people ignorant.

    During break time at obedience school, two dogs were talking.

    Republicans don't need to keep folks ignorant... Dems have capitalized off of that for years... You do recall that Obama was re-elected, right?

    And then all the scandals began to come out AFTER the election.

    I find it impossible to believe that the Benghazi cover-up wasn't all about that election. They were also keeping a lid on the IRS scandal, and that had been going on for at least two years. Complaints were ignored for at least a year, and then the chicanery continued even after it had "theoretically" been stopped.

    It is very strange that we still don't know where the President was between 5 pm and 9 pm. I recall that there is a WH photographer who follows the POTUS around like a shadow taking photos of every nuance. Not just this POTUS, but SOP for all Presidents. But no record at all of those four hours?

    It's funny... The media went absolutely berserk when the former SC gov. Was AWOL that time a couple years ago with his Argentine lover. Said he was hiking the Appalachian Trail.

    We have a sitting President of The United Staes missing in action while American men are being killed by terrorists... And the media yawns... No wonder Obama can get away with telling them to behave... They do what he says.

    He was in a meeting with the vice president and the Sec. of Defense. It was his last scheduled meeting for the day. It is on his schedule if you want to look it up. It is not that the media is ignoring it, there is just not the story there that you want to be there.

    BTW this is post started out about how republicans are thwarting efforts for public service annoucements about a law coming into effect. We can change topics all you want, but they did do that.

    The NFL is facing a multi million dollar class action lawsuit from past players in re to head injuries, they will undoubtedly lose but to what extent is unknown , there was no way that the NFLPA or the owners were going to get involved in this political football at this time
