So did you guys hear about that Pistorius, the handicapped sprinter? He was arrested for killing his girlfriend. Goes from national hero to zero in 2 seconds.

Miscellaneous:

We Have Seen the Present, and It Does Not Work:
The International Olympic Committee announced it will drop the ancient sport of wrestling, saying it is not "relevant," from the Summer Olympics, which still include badminton and ping-pong.

Ted Nugent explaining his criticism of President Obama's gun-control proposals after the State of the Union:
"I'm a gun guy. I've never been without a gun."
Except when was a draft dodger during Vietnam.
But that was only for a number of years.
And he did become a "warrior," as he likes to put it, when he was no longer eligible to serve in a war.
So give him credit.

Beware the ides of National Return Shopping Carts to the Supermarket Month.

I was shocked to see the IOC drop wrestling.

They have the trampoline, synchronized swimming, badminton, ping-pong, and horse riding where between the rider and the horse, the real athlete is the f'ing horse, but no wrestling.

People called Bush a monkey all the time.

How come we don't hear much about how Obama resembles Curious George?

Dog- if by brother , you mean a black guy, you should know that Pistorius sure looks awfully white in his photos.

And, domestic disputes leading up to shooting your partner are far and away not confined to any ghetto, regardless of group.

NIck was citing the # of countries who send wrestlers to the Olympics (over 70, I think) compared to sports we're keeping where significantly fewer countries send athletes. He thinks we could retire Tae Kwan Do, as it's pretty much South Korea's sport.

I never once heard Bush referred to as a MOnkey.

And you're being racist again.

Please explain this to me: the "head start" program has been proven to have NO advantage when it comes to getting kids to do better in school. Yet your president wants to impliment it nationwide, at the tax payers expense. I'll bet when the House attempts to block it, he'll say "See, Republicans don't care about your childrens' education."

The assault weapons ban of 94 to 04, has had ZERO affect on gun violence, yet your president wants another ban. When Republicans try to stop it, he'll say "See, Republicans don't care about your childrens' safety."

Why does he insist on implimenting programs that will do nothing but add to our debt and raise our taxes?

Raising the minimum wage will harm small business, increase prices for the consumer, and make businesses hire fewer people at reduced hours. Of course, if Republicans try to stop it, he'll say "See, Republicans don't care about the poor."

I believe this is a deliberate strategy to turn more people against the Republican party. My hope is, smart people will see right through that and it will backfire on him.

Wise up, people.

ABsolutely, unequivocably (sp?): WRONG WRONG WRONG.

It's been proven for YEARS to be successful. Oklahoma was the first state to offer free pre-k education for four-year-olds (thus, "Head Start") and it has been a huge success. THe REpublican who got the funding for it can tell you how kids are better prepared for kindergarten (reading sooner), and how that snowballs into being more prepared with each subsequent grade.

THey also have established very clear links between HS graduation rates and college entrance exams to pre-k education.
