Tim Tebow was known for offering a prayer of thanksgiving for good plays he made in college and in the NFL. He popularized “Tebowing”. He was not penalized, but last night Husain Abdullah offered up an act of thanksgiving and he was rewarded with a 15 yard penalty. Can we say double standard. Share your thoughts.
Who is leading the young people in the black community? As we watch the conflict in Ferguson we see young people willing to risk tear gas to get their point across. To these young people Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton are icons from the past. They are not really relevant figures to the young people. This is the social media generation. They are more comfortable texting than listening to leaders from the past recite rhymes or platitudes. So where do we go from here? What is victory? Will an arrest quell the violence? Since an arrest is not imminent will the unrest simply go on unchecked? No it won’t. The city has to return to normal. People have to go work, children have to go back to school. This has to come to an end, and it will, it will be interesting to see how it ends.
We have a primary coming next week and over the past few weeks we have received numerous mailers extolling the virtues of a myriad of candidates. The question is do you ever read these things, and if so do they factor into your decision about a candidate? Share your thoughts.
It is fine to disagree with the administration about the handling of Bowe Bergdahl but taking potshots at his father is seemingly a bridge too far. Yesterday Joe Scarborough crossed that bridge and said what he would have done if his son was in a similar situation. Churck Todd who is no fan of the administration challenged him. It is so easy for the media to sit in their comfy chairs and ponder all the “what ifs”, but it is truly another thing to be the parents of a son that has been missing for 5 years. At this point we don’t know all the facts of Bergdahl’s disappearance, and we also know it is impossible to say what we would do for our own child. Joe needs to take a step back from the plank.

This morning master showman Donald Trump was a guest on the Today Show. He was there to promote the Miss USA pagent, but Matt Lauer decided to throw him a foreign policy question. Specifically Lauer said that Trump has repeatedly called the president “weak” what he do if he was president in reference to the behavior of Putin. Of course the pompus Trump said it should have nver happened, but when pressed Trump offered criticism and this stinging line. Trump said I hope the President does not try to “show his manhood” by doing something stupid. Why the manhood reference? Trump might be a successful businessman but he has not been elected to any office. He is a Monday morning quarterback who NBC has given an incredible platform to spew his venom regarding this president. It must translate into ratings gold for them because he is still allowed to do it. Lauer willingly lobbed the prepared soft pitch and predictably Trump hit it out of the park during his visit to the Today Show to pump anothe one of his circus acts.
