Two Hundred Twenty Seven Years and Counting
Happy Constitution Day! Two Hundred and twenty-seven years ago, the Convention finished its work and signed the Document they meant to present to the nation. It wasn’t the end of the debate, it was the real beginning, as those few and special men finally finished their work, now it had to be debated and discussed and ratified by the people. Take a few minutes today and read through the Constitution, visit CONSTITUTION THURSDAY on the web or on Facebook, and see if there are still lessons for us today.
The Minnesota Vikings did the only thing that the could do late last night when the RE-DEACTIVATED ADRIAN PETERSON. The only thing that the Vikings owner got right in his presser this morning is that he made a mistake yesterday in re-instating Peterson. Look, this is NOT a Court of Law, and to date, AP has been indicted, but not convicted of anything from legal standpoint. But the gridiron is not a Court of Law, it’s a Court of Public Opinion and in that Court, the Vikings were hurting themselves, insulting millions of fans, and causing the NFL as a whole major headache. Every now and again, some Congressweasel gets the idea to ELIMINATE THE TAX EXEMPT STATUS of Pro Sports, in this case targeted the NFL, and these types of stupid moves like the Vikings made, just raise the profile for politicians who believe that they can best get re-elected by “taking a stand” against the league. My best guess is that is won’t be long before the Panthers and the 49ers follow suite with their problem athletes.
I would be surprised if anything new or “explosive” comes out of THE HOUSE BENGHAZI HEARINGS which started this morning. The left will claim that the hearings are “politicized,” and then do everything that they can to politicize them. The right will claim that they are not politicized, but do everything that they can to use the hearings against Hillary Clinton (and they should). At the end of the day, until and unless we know why, on the one day of the year that every American Ambassador in a PLRI country should be quietly secured in a protected bunker, ours went to n unsecure, possibly even unguarded “Consulate” (a rented villa) in the heart of PLRI terrorist control, we won’t be anywhere near understanding why what happened, happened.
In Scotland, polls show that the pro-Independence side and the Unionist side are running neck-and-neck and it’s too close to call. But is that really the case? What if the pro side is so violent and intimidating that the UNIONISTS ARE KEEPING QUIET UNTIL THEY GET TO THE POLLS? This, by the by, would not be without some historical precedent. In our battle for Independence, those who were against us or perhaps not as fervent as the Patriots thought that they should be about it, were treated with disdain and intimidation, INCLUDING DISARMING THEM. So while the polls might be close, we’ll have to wait another day to see what the real feeling of the Scots are. One has to wonder though, what happens if the Unionists win?
