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.
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.

People called Bush a monkey all the time.
How come we don't hear much about how Obama resembles Curious George?
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.

As far as I can tell, the only possible way he could be useful is to make other people feel better about themselves by comparison. His parents must have done something awful in a prior life to be saddled with him.

Oh, you mean the misguided diatribe that he introduces to deflect from the actual topic and that he parrots from bits and pieces he picked up from barstool conversations he's overheard and websites he visits that support his preconceived notions, insecurities and martyrdom?

Hennepin County (Mpls) SHeriff doesn't hire recruits who have visible tats, including on their arms.

What I don't get is, a spokesperson for the sheriff's department pulls out all these stats re: prisoners:

Sheriff's Office spokeswoman Lisa Kiava said the priority is the safety of the people in the jail. About 70 percent of the male inmates have used illegal narcotics in the hours before they are arrested and some are drunk while they are being booked. She said another 30 percent are mentally ill.

"We are working with a challenging population," she said.

Huh? And that is related to tattoos how?

Also: 1 in 3 people under 40 has a tat. Isn't ruling them out going to hurt your hiring prospects? I'd rather have a cop with tats who does a great job than a mediocre cop who's tat-free.

One of the comments pointed out that maybe a tatted cop would be a good prospect for undercover work.

I hate to support mutt in anything but...

I recall Bush jr being likened many times to a monkey because of his ears.

Can you deny the similarity between curious george and obamma?

Five little monkeys jumping on the bed.
One fell off and bumped his head.

Mama called the doctor and the doctor said,
"No more monkeys jumping on the bed!"

Is this a racist song, or only racist when sang in a predominately black classroom?

Likening any president to a monkey is not racist.

I don't care who you are that's funny!

Edog, c'mon, you can't compare calling a white guy a monkey to calling a black guy one. There are nasty racial overtones when you start calling a black person one.

There are a lot of other sports that should have been retired before wrestling, which goes back to the Olympics in ancient Greece.
