Socialism This is a step Congress should not be permitted to take. The market and consumer choice should be the sole determining factor. Every single day, we let the government make more decisions about our personal lives under the auspices of various dubious movements: environmentalism, health, safety… whatever else your friendly neighborhood bureaucrat can conjure in his narrow little ...

The Mitchell Report

by Admin | Tags:
One of the saddest documents I’ve ever read. As a baseball fan, this is devastating. The reputations of players and teams ruined here is staggering. I’m not sure what I think of it all yet but this can only be the tip of the iceberg. After all, it’s testimony of only a few people. Think of the many other trainers and sources that could be providing to players. I have a hard... [More]

Another journalist who is incapable of understanding that her job is to report the news, not give us her opinion on it: Yawn It’s becoming boring and tedious to go into detail and Jennifer Loven is a repeat offender. She shouldn’t have a job reporting objective pieces but then again, the Associated Press as a whole repeatedly ignores objectivity in their work. Some highlights: The ... [More]

Jason Whitlock Whitlock is a great writer and an original thinker. Sometimes, I’ve seen him get carried away with his own dogma but those are rare occasions. This is a great article: Some people want Michael Vick locked out of the NFL forever. I don’t. You take away a man’s dream forever and you create a hopeless, dangerous man. When you do it to a group of young men (black an... [More]

ESPN

Vince Doria An excellent article all around – and an excellent feature ESPN has added to its website, even if Le Anne Schreiber is clearly not being heeded by the executives who run the “Worldwide Leader in Speculation and Sensationalism.” Witness: “I’m not telling you there was a demand that we had to do this from a news standpoint, but we think it is more interest...

In a recent article [Point of no return, Feb. 7], Phi Delta Theta President Ryan Fischer made this unfortunate statement: “Placing Phi Delt on campus would be a step toward returning Greek organizations to the noble principles they were founded upon, and moving away from the unfortunate stereotypes that have come to define them as a result of alcohol abuse.” There are two implications ...

Jersey

Death Penalty “It found the death penalty was a more expensive sentence than life in prison and has not deterred murder.” Hell, we could abolish New Jersey itself using that logic. For that matter: “The death penalty is barbaric and fatally flawed beyond repair,” said Sen. Shirley Turner, a Democrat who sponsored the bill. So is the New Jersey Legislature Senator. We anx...
