Pictures Worth A Thousand Words

You are entitled to your own opinion, but you are not entitled to your own facts.  I call the Obama presidency successful while Bush…err not so much.

The hit Brandon Browner delivered to Ladarius Green was brutal, but of the NFL is serious about protecting players, it would mandate teams use the safest helmet and equipment available.  Until then, it’s nothing but lip service and window dressing.

 "I respect Derrick Rose and all of our players for voicing their personal views on important issues but my preference would be for players to abide by our on court attire rules." NBA Commissioner Adam Silver said.  Yes Mr. Silver, your contract with Adidas is more important than crucial social commentary, necessary activism, and personal expression.

Sovereign nation extremists point guns at U.S. Marshalls, but 12 year old Tamir Rice with a pellet gun is the real public threat.

Conservatives like to call themselves the law and order Americans especially when it comes to immigration.  Yet several of them seem to sympathize with Eric Garner because they view him as someone who stood up to excessive taxes.  So it appears that according to conservatives, we are a nation of laws…when it suits a political aim.

Apparently the Ebola outbreak has gone the way of Malaysia Airlines flight 370.  The media may not feel the story is still worthy of reporting, but in Sierra Leone it’s not only newsworthy, it’s a tragedy.

Frackers vs the Sheiks…race to the bottom.  But that’s good news for Americans who will see the price drops at the pump put is they will see hundreds of dollars more in their wallets which will likely stimulate the economy further.  As for the Saudis, the likely outcome of the price war is consolidation in the North American oil producers as the strong will consume the weak.
