As a Christian I respect Tim Tebow’s devotion to his faith, but I hate to see that faith exploited. Prayer is a personal thing and Tebow has chosen to demonstrate it on the national stage, but I find this shirt repulsive. I don’t see it as a statement of faith I see it as exploitive. What do you think? Share your thoughts. Also read the linked story regarding why the Patriots coach loves his Tebow.
Sebastian de la Cruz sang the National Anthem Tuesday night at the Spurs Heat game and the racist came out with vicious tweets that questioned his citizenship and his right to sing the anthem. Last night the Spurs invited him back the Mayor of SanAntonio introduced him to the packed crowd. It was great to see this young boy confidently take the microphone and sing the song again despite the ignorant element among us.
Chad Ochocinco Johnson used to be a big deal in the NFL. As a big deal most of your bad behavior is often overlooked. As long as you are catching those passes you can virtually do anything you want, but when you are on the down side of glory what once was viewed as cute can now be viewed as criminal. Today Johnson was a stone’s throw from freedom when he made the mistake of slapping his lawyer on the butt. In the sports world that might be viewed as an “atta Boy”. Some in the court room found the gesture amusing, but the judge did not. Judge Kathleen McHugh refused to accept the plea and sentenced Johnson to 30 days in jail. Did she overreact or is this justice?
The NSA employee who leaked confidential documents to the public has surfaced and stated the reasons for his actions. His name is not important for purposes of this post, but what is important is how did this happen? He was employed by Booz Hamilton the company that the US government pays tons of cash to keep this info away from the public. The employee had been there for 3 months. Now think about it 3 months. In most jobs you are not coverd by health insurance in 3 months. In 3 months you probably are not given keys to the the workplace, but in 3 months this guy was privy to sensitive information and he made the decision to copy that information and take it to the press. Just 3 months and he has put the government on blast. I am not debating the merits of the disclosures or even if we should know the information disclosed, but I am questioning the company policies that gave him access to make them.
Last night Cicely Tyson won a Tony Award. Tyson has been absent from the Broadway stage for 30 years. Tyson is an incredible talent with an incredible professional resume. Tyson is famous for being a demonstrative talent. Today so many people seek fame, and I mean instant fame. Go on Youtube, and you will see people singing, dancing, twerking, flirting, fighting, cursing, shouting, speaking…in other words doing everything in their quest for instant fame, but when Tyson first came to town fame was not the goal. Working your craft was the goal and ultimately fame might follow. We live in a land that celebrates the Kardashians for being famous for being famous it is delightful to see a woman of grace receive an honor for actually doing something.
First lady Michelle Obama was speaking at a private fundraiser. Her prepared remarks were interuppted by lesbian advocate, Ellen Sturtz. Mrs. Obama stepped away from the microphone and refused to speak while Sturtz shouted. Sturtz contention is the White House has not done enough for gay rights. Sturtz was silenced by the crowd and the first lady did continue. Question: Should a speaker engage a heckler or ignore them? http://now.msn.com/michelle-obama-confronts-heckler-ellen-sturtz-at-fundraiser

Have you ever gone for a drive with the car in reverse? If the answer is yeas please tell me when you are on the road so I can stay home. Seriously most people would say no to the question, but isn’t that what the government is doing now? We are now trapped in Scandaland. The IRS scandal seemingly has so many layers. It started with the Tea Party and now we see the let them eat cake mentality was the norm. Eric Holder long an enemy of the right is now making some on the left recoil, but what about jobs? Is anybody talking about the unemployment rate? During the election season last year jobs and the economy were hot topics, but in Scandaland there seems to be no room for this in the conversation. So I guess we will just keep the car in reverse and keep looking back at what is wrong without looking forward to accomplishing some big things. Don’t get me wrong we have big problems and issues that warrant investigation, but does everyone have to just address scandals? Share your thoughts.
