this is NOT politics as usual

In the light of the recent Rush Limbaugh debacle... i've been seeing a lot of ridiculous comments on the subject. First of all, Rush Limbaugh ought to have the right to buy anything he wants. The politically correct NFL can SHOVE IT. It is ridiculous that Rush was removed from this bid. I don't care if you're leaning so far left that you're falling down. You should be disturbed by this. It's not about liking Mr. Limbaugh or conservative radio or conservative principles in general. This is America. Limbaugh is NOT a racist (if you want one of those go look at Sharpton before Limbaugh)... When I hear Mr. L rip P BO... sometimes I just have to laugh, however he does have some major points... as do the rest of the conservative talk radio gang.

A lot of people say these guys are doing it for the money. You're darn right they are. But that doesn't take away from what they are saying. They are not laughing all the way to the bank with this stuff... if you think they don't believe in the conservative values they defend on the airwaves for hours each day... well i think their power scares you. Rush Limbaugh listeners are certainly the most in awe... of him... and it gets a bit ridiculous... but a lot of the things he says are valid....

What's going on in America is NOT politics as usual. The left is going for broke on expanding government... if this healthcare garbage passes you're going to start to see it... there have been reports that in 10 years the average american family would be paying 20,000 for healthcare per year if a government plan (namely the concept that is the baucus plan passes)... there have been ZERO indications that it is going to save americans money... the politicians SOMETIMES talk about that... but they prefer to avoid the cost factor all together. isn't that a bit fishy?

I have yet to hear concrete numbers from the left about how this is actually going to save money. I'm a physical therapy student at Saint Louis University and I've taken a healthcare systems class in which we talked about bringing costs down so I can relate a little bit to the complexity of it from that standpoint but I've also done alot of my own research...

I will defeat anyone who argues this with me by one simple principle... WHY DOES GOVERNMENT HAVE TO TAKE OVER HEALTHCARE TO BRING DOWN COSTS! type in republican health care reform and you will find a number of people with a number of free market ideas for healthcare reform.... if you think making the GOVERNMENT an insurance company is going to help i want to hear your logic... since when is the government any better than an insurance company! why do you people put so much faith in a government that has been plagued by special interest groups and a general greediness of politicians... does the fact that these clowns would not live under the laws they are trying to pass faze you in the least!? it ought to. it really ought to.

spending is out of control in this country... it started LONG before bush... it started before Reagan.... but Obama has ramped it up into overdrive. If you're in debt... are you going to go out and spend more? no, you are not! sure that's simplifying it on a grand scale... but does this really make any sense to anyone! now is not the time to get fed up and let what's going to happen happen...

these are strange times my friends... I would sincerely like some good political discourse on this topic..... so if you have some positive comments to make, I'd be glad to have a spirited and respectful debate... i don't have anything against obama... i have alot against pelosi and i don't have anything against an american for having an opinion.. i would just like to know that people understand all sides of this.

would healthcare for all be awesome! you're darn right it would! but we live in a world where things must be paid for and where things must be well thought out... rushing through a bill that will take over 1/6 of the us economy is irresponsible!

let's hear some debate!

APPLES

hey guys, I'm going to branch out a little bit here. and this will be brief.

Apples are more effective at waking you up in the morning than caffeine.  Think about it.  Also, cutting sugar out of your diet as much as possible is a very good thing.  On that note, vitamin water is not that good for you =(. bummer.  drink water,  eat apples.

no bongshow, smoking out of an apple doesn't count

NOT SO FAST MY FRIENDS! part one.

On the subject of the Fiesta Bowl: WOW!!!!

All year we bashed the Big 10, we ripped them apart, Ohio State wasn't worthy of a top 10 ranking, a BCS game, blah blah blah blah.. The Big 10 is garbage, blah blah blah.

I don't take it all back. Alot of the Big 10 is weak. I believe that Penn State is overrated. However, I believe THE OHIO STATE UNIVERSITY is underrated. Let's remember, these guys lost two games, that USC debacle was early in the season, Pryor wasn't playing yet... I believe that would be a very different game as of right now. In fact, I'll go as far to say that I think USC was lucky that Penn State won the Big 10 and not Ohio State. The rematch would have been much, much different.

Even as this game wraps up and it looks like Texas is going to win by three points, this game shakes everything up, perhaps even more than Utah's victory over Bama. It's the third game that many thought the Big 12 would win easily... but, if UT holds on, it will be the only game that the Big 12 won of those three. What does all of this mean? Let me straighten it out for you knuckleheads.

--->Ohio State is NOT WHO WE THOUGHT THEY WERE. They have matured as a team as the season has gone along. Boeckman has done a great job basically stepping aside and being supportive of his team. That would be so hard to do as a senior. Pryor has come along nicely, and that D is solid. Ohio State should be darn proud of this season. They really showed some guts. I think this is the best OSU team in the last 3 years after seeing this game.

--->Texas is NOT WHO WE THOUGHT THEY WERE. Time out. time out on the floor. This is no fault of Texas' in fact, Texas is who we thought they were.... but we just didn't see them play against a D like that of OSU's....

--->I've seen sorority girls play better defense than the Big 12... One game I saw was 2-0... wow. But in all honesty... I don't want to get into this conference babble, but OSU showed what a SOLID d can do to one of those big 12 offenses.

---> THAT's why they play the games. we can sit here and piss eachother off all day, but the bottom line is, the game is played on the field, not through statistics, trends, or the opinions of knuckleheads like all of us.

---> annd that's why they'll play the NCG. OU can save the Big 12's reputation. But if things go especially badly for OU... I will say the O word. and we all know what that is.

---> its GREAT. to be. a FLLLLLOOOOORRRRRIIIIDDDAAA GATOR! you guys should try it sometime. it really is fantastic!

FLORIDA 41 OU 28. THis is my final pick.

I'm still trying to figure out who this OU guy calling out Tim Tebow is

Hats off to the Texas Longhorns for battling out that victory!
Hats off to the OSU Buckeyes for showing us a thing or two about Big 10 football.

Big 10 fans.. (mostly OSU FANS) My bad for misreading the Buckeyes all year... they are not who i thought they were. I was wrong.


AN ADDITION:

USC fans... I really do think an OSU rematch would be different, however, I think this looks good for USC as is.  THe pluses for USC outweigh the minuses.  The only two teams in the picture you can't really connect are USC, Florida.  If OU gets beat badly, I say USC fans can start complaining that they should have been in the game.  However, that's all after the fact, and doesn't mean much.  but oh well....


Let it be known that I'm giving USC some credit here. and Excuse me while i go cut my wrists, man giving that credit just makes me need to inflict pain on myself... ha
