Michael Vick was released from prison today to continue his sentence in house arrest. I know that there is a lot of desire to say that he has paid his price for his mistake and therefore should be allowed to play in the NFL.
I sympathize that a man or woman should be able to move on after they have paid for their mistakes. However, sports should be held to a different level of integrity. We should not allow Michael Vick to play professional sports until Pete Rose is allowed to play baseball again.
As I discussed several times, we need to hold athletes to a standard that at least is equivalent to everyday life and they probably should be held higher due to their incomes. Check out the following articles:
I am happy to see that the idiot that approved the photo opp flyover over New York City has been fired! This is from the Wall Street Journal:
The White House said Friday that President Obama has accepted the resignation of Louis Caldera as Director of the White House Military Office, effective May 22. Mr. Caldera wrote in a letter that the controversy created by the flight of one of the presidential planes over lower Manhattan had made it impossible for him to effectively lead the office. The unannounced flight briefly panicked office workers near the site of the Sept. 11 attacks. The White House also released a photograph taken during the flyover.
The administration also released an image from the flyover. I still contend that this could have been easily recreated in Photoshop!
The White House has released the March Madness NCAA tournament picks of President Barack Hussein Obama. While I don’t begrudge the man the opportunity to spend a few minutes of pleasure doing the same thing that many Americans are doing today, I question the wisdom of releasing those picks to the public. I think it may play to the superstar status that he tried to get away from in the election (and caused Paris Hilton to release this video). It also may be a little frustrating to the thousands that received a foreclosure notice today.
Regardless, here are BHO’s picks. You can click on the image to go to the original larger image.
I question that BHO crossed out Louisville and then selected UNC. While that may be a prudent choice, I wonder about his flip-flop on this issue. I sure hope that he didn’t have a political analyst help him with this!
For the past decade or two, Ronald Wilson Reagan set the standard as “The Great Communicator” while he was President of the United States. There is no question that he excelled over the many bumblings of George Walker Bush as David Letterman has so aptly recorded for us!
However, it is already clear that President Barack Hussein Obama is going to take the mantle of the Great Communicator if he hasn’t already done so.
Here are some of his accomplishments so far:
- a YouTube channel of his weekly radio addresses
- a blog on the official White House site
- and has already delivered some excellent speeches
Congratulations to BHO and his staff on all of this. I am sure that it has been quite difficult! Our government has never been the center of excellence for the use of technology. Clinton’s team was extremely frustrated at the lack of technology when they moved into the building.
There has been quite a bit of complaining that the current stimulus bill that was just passed by the House and is going to Senate is filled with pork and special spending projects. This is a silly complaint – of course it is!
The bill is a spending bill. It should be loaded to the gills with pork. That is what spending bills do – they spend money. In fact, it should have so much pork in it that a reasonably religious person of Jewish descent should run for the hills!
Of course, it shouldn’t have silly things in it like contraceptives. That does nothing for the economy despite the silliness of Ms. Pelosi. But it should be filled with pet projects from every mayor and county commissioner in the land. If the mayor of a 20-30,000 citizen city CAN’T get a million or two out of this bill – they should be run out of town! In case there are any mayors or governors out there that can’t figure out what to ask for that they can spend money on RIGHT NOW then I made a list of projects that they should consider.
