Ray Rice knocked his then girlfriend out in the elevator of a New Jersey casino. He has tearfully apologized and his now wife has stood by her man, but did the NFL do enough? today they announced his two game suspension and his coach has said they want to move on, but should we move on. Why do we move so quickly when dealing with domestic violence? How many people grew up in homes that you frequently heard” what happens in this house stays in this house”, and often domestic violence was one of those things. The Rice incident put his business out for the world to see and pass judgment on, but is this punishment enough? Share your thoughts.

Hillary Clinton has not declared her candidacy for president, but she is the talk of the political world. She said when she and President Clinton left the White House they were “flat broke”. No one in their right mind really thought they were broke. She exaggerated in her zeal to appear that she was just like us “regular folks”. She is not. She is rich like most people who run for president. The key is to be comfortable with your wealth and stop the charade. Mitt Romney got crucified not because of his wealth, but because of his disdain for the 47%. He was out of touch with regular folks, and so is Clinton, but the difference is Clinton was once a member of the regular folk club, and maybe just maybe she might learn how to relate to them again.

This is the story of 3 Cricket smartphones. Two were good and one was very, very bad. We have been trying to get the bad one replaced for months, but when you call the 800 number you are connected to people named Paul and Jane who barely speak English. You are given other numbers to call that are answered by automated voices commanding you to hit 1, 2 or 3 where you are greeted by other automated voices. If you get a real human response you are tempted to say Eureka, but that joy is short lived because they will direct you back into the land of 1 800 numbers. So my question is who do you call to get this phone replaced? Need to talk to someone who can really make this happen.

ARMSTRONG WILLIAMS’ ASSESSMENT OF ERIC CANTOR’S LOSS
“House Majority Whip Eric Cantor had always been the compromise candidate, the one who didn’t fit any particular profile or stereotype. He was Southern, spoke with a twang, but he was a practicing Jew. He was principled, conservative, but determined to sell the Republican brand to those who were neither. He could speak the language of the talk radio conservative base, and, as a second language, could speak the language of the bleeding hearts, the hypersympathetic caucus on the other side of the aisle. This last ability, this second language of his, proved his undoing. Cantor’s willingness to support even the most abstract immigration reform principles won him no good will from Democrats, and outright hostility from his own base.”
Williams is a Republican it is interesting to read his analysis. Let him tell it Cantor was never a fit for the party. it is almost as if he describing someone from another party. What is the GOP brand? Share your thoughts.
