The NFL buys into the racist madness. They deny Rush Limbaugh the opportunity to partner in buying a team. For comments he supposedly made. Comments not even based in fact and others grossly taken out of context. Be honest. Rush was denied because he's white. Conservative white. Even a bigger sin. Where are all the players speaking out against such racism? I can't hear you. Bunch of cowards. Especially Jim Irsay, the owner of the Colts and Roger Goodell, NFL Commissioner (Yes, I know they're white). We heard them and their racist comments against Rush. We heard a few black players' racist comments against Rush. Repeating unsubstantiated quotes (lies) attributed to Rush. Who cares? Rush is white. That's all that matters. The NFL is 67% black players, outrageously overrepresented using Al Sharpton's shakedown math, and the coaching ranks are also overrepresented by blacks. Problem? No problem. But this atrocious Rush bashing with no principled stand against it from NFL players and owners is a shameful problem. Institutional racism. Against a guy who deserves it least.

The War came home to Reynoldsburg
For those who think the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan are just distant conflicts, they're not. They're as close as your next door neighbors. I went to stand with hundreds of flag carrying Patriots today as we lined the procession route to honor fallen hero Army Sgt. Titus Reynolds, 23, of Reynoldsburg, Ohio. Killed in action in Afghanistan. It was gut wrenching. As the funeral procession came into view, a quiet hush fell on the crowd; all traffic stopped in reverence. Not a sound, not a word, as the loyal and respectful Patriot Guard Riders slowly streamed by. Followed by the hearse carrying our beloved Soldier. And then Titus' family. I stood there, silent, holding up a picture of Titus. As the the family vehicle moved slowly by, Titus' mom saw the picture and we made eye contact. Briefly. Mom to mom. She slowly pressed her hand on the closed car window and whispered "Thank you." Imagine that. Her thanking us while on the way to bury a part of herself, her beautiful young son. I wish I could have told her that it is we who thank her. I think she knew. I hope she knew. At the cemetery, Titus' young wife sobbed as she clutched the flag her husband died defending. Their first year wedding anniversary was to have been Monday, October 12. My heart ached for her. Later, I shared with a friend of mine how gut wrenching the funeral was. He said that's why he didn't want to go. I told him that you don't go for yourself; you go for them. You must go. You must feel some measure of the pain. So that you never forget the price that was paid for your freedom. Never.

Obama Peace Prize is a Global Disgrace
Peace? Are you kidding me? Barack Obama hasn't accomplished anything that even remotely deserves consideration for the Nobel Peace Prize. He was a leader in Chicago, and Chicago was and continues to be a cesspool of violence. Violence that he either ignored, didn't care about, or let it go on for political reasons. He was in a position to do something and didn't. He was busy making big money, building a new million dollar mansion, and hanging out with terrorists. This do nothing except for himself millionaire no more deserves the Nobel Prize than did Yasser Arafat. It's a global disgrace.

Sucker Punched in Denmark
I wonder if the Obamas are finally getting it. Chicago politics don't play anywhere except Chicago. And the whole world doesn't mmm mmm mmm Barack Hussein Obama. Instead, the International Olympic Committee hit Obama with a well placed sucker punch. KO in the first round. No 2016 for the Obamas. Not even the adoring U.S. mainstream media, who mistakenly thought they had global reach, couldn save Barack's America hating butt. Nor Michelle's. Whose hate is even bigger.
