Vick Will PLay It looks like the Falcons and the NFL have made the right decision and are going to let Vick play until the legal process plays out. It’s a shame that they will face pressure from myopic special interest groups who are more concerned about animals than they are about people. What Vick and his cohorts allegedly did is horrifying. If he is found guilty, he should never take ... [More]

More Garbage I realize this is in England but it won’t be long before Congress in this country follows suit. Once again, this nonsense about saving lives is just a smoke screen. It’s a way for the government to prey upon the vices of the population and enrich themselves.

Davis, president of the American Medical Association. “Fewer smokers means fewer people with strokes, heart attacks, cancer, and other smoking-related health conditions.” It also means fewer funds coming in for this stupid program.

If you add to that the number of them who have had to go into rehab for either durgs or alcohol, we have ourselves an epidemic. Is someone going to start investigating the recording industry – r...
