Senile Harry Reid Being Stupid Again

From the LVRJ:
Another seemingly offhand comment from U.S. Sen. Harry Reid has made waves, these rippling to St. Louis.
Chitchat with a New York Times reporter following a recent interview for some reason turned to politics in the Vatican, according to an item on the newspaper’s political blog last week.
“We sure do like this new pope,” Reid said of Pope Francis.
In the discussion, Reid brought up Cardinal Raymond Burke, the former archbishop of St. Louis. Burke, a critic of the pope, was demoted twice in the past year as Francis reshaped the Vatican bureaucracy. Burke, a fervent opponent of embryonic stem cell research and gay marriage, was the church official who once memorably said he would deny communion to then-presidential candidate Sen. John Kerry because of Kerry’s view on abortion.
Reid, who is Mormon, said he met Burke once and had a good conversation with him. But, he said, “Claire McCaskill and others just hate the man.”
McCaskill, the Democratic senator from Missouri, has a history with Burke. In 2007, Burke pressed a Catholic high school in the St. Louis archdiocese to disinvite McCaskill as a commencement speaker because of her views on abortion even though the senator’s daughter was in the graduating class.
Still, McCaskill moved to distance herself from Reid’s comment.
“Those were Harry Reid’s words, not Claire’s; she would never use the word ‘hate’ when talking about the church,” McCaskill spokesman John LaBombard told the St. Louis Post-Dispatch.
Some wondered if there was a method to Reid’s comment. The Times noted the Nevadan’s remark about McCaskill came several hours after she, along with five other Democratic senators, declined to vote for him as Senate Democratic leader and went public with her decision.
Reid must know much about the word "hate" as most of Nevada does hate Senile/Coward/Liar Harry Reid.
And most of the country also hate Reid as well.

Pretty Much Sums Up obama's Presidency

From the LVRJ: President Barack Obama spoke about immigration for 33 minutes at Del Sol High School a week ago Friday, then followed it up over the weekend playing golf at two of the most impressive courses in Southern Nevada....
Obama has played more than 200 rounds of golf since he entered the White House, but this was the first time he played in Las Vegas as president, according to the Obama Golf Counter website. Don Van Natta Jr., who wrote “First Off the Tee,” a book on presidents and golf, reported Obama played nine holes at Bali Hai Golf Club near Mandalay Bay soon after he became a candidate in 2007.
Obama played 27 holes Nov. 22 at the exclusive Shadow Creek Golf Course in North Las Vegas. His partners were retired Yankees great Derek Jeter; Steve Cloobeck, a major Democratic donor and chief executive of Diamond Resorts International; and Las Vegas Sun owner Brian Greenspun.
Our POS president spends more time being a golfer than being a president.
Pretty much sums up Obama's presidency.

Just Pathetic

I'm not a hunter but I find this to be very wrong:
From the Kingman Daily Miner: A reward has been offered in the poaching of two mule deer bucks southeast of Kingman in hunt Unit 16A.
The pair was shot off Blake Ranch Road on the Cane Springs Ranch sometime between Nov. 17 and Nov. 19, according to Zen Mocarski, the public information officer for the Arizona Department of Game and Fish Region 3 office in Kingman.
There were left to waste, said Mocarski. Operation Game Thief posted a reward up to $750 for information leading to the arrest of those responsible for the crime.
"It is important to remember this is not the act of a hunter," said Mocarski. "Poaching is a crime. We are looking for additional information and ask anyone with knowledge of the case to come forward. The eyes and ears of the public are critically important in bringing poachers to justice."
I'm sorry, but the people who did this need some serious prison time.
You just don't kill 2 deer and leave them to rot.  What's the purpose of killing a animal, just to see them die?
Prison time for these idiots.

Mom Admits She Raised A Thug

Some people on this planet should never be interviewed by the news and this lady is one of these people:
From the Las Vegas Sun: Victoria Rutherford of Ferguson said she believed Wilson should have not only resigned, but been convicted of a crime.
"I'm upset. I have a 16-year-old son. It could've been him. I feel that he was absolutely in the wrong," she said.
So, mama just admitted that her son is a thug who gets high on pot, robs a store, assaults the store owner and then assaults a police officer for the thug trifecta +1.
Some people just should not have children and be interviewed for a news story.
They are just too damn stupid.

How Pawn Stars Is Filmed

The chair that Rick is sitting in was first seen in the first years of Pawn Stars.
They still have it???
From the LVRJ:
Running a pawn shop that doubles as the set for a popular reality TV show is no easy task.
But one Las Vegas local makes it his goal to seamlessly keep a business going with 14 people working for television crews coming in and out.
Gold &Silver Pawn’s general manager Travis Benton, 30, has a long history with the Harrison family, the owners and funny cast of “Pawn Stars.”
Benton has been friends with Corey Harrison and Austin “Chumlee” Russell, who star in the History channel series, since he was 11.
Benton went to work at the shop in 2005 and moved into management as the behind-the-scenes show, launched in 2009, gained national exposure.
Although the show has brought more good than bad, Benton said, running a business while facilitating what can be a large and unpredictable production crew presents its challenges.
The show clearly helps foot traffic, drawing 4,000 to 5,000 visitors a day to the storefront at 713 S. Las Vegas Blvd. Sometimes they stand in line outside the store.
But, Benton said, sales can suffer because of the show. When the production crew wants to shoot, staff has to kick out customers who aren’t going to be in the show.
It can be frustrating when a sale has been in the works and it means less commission for the sellers, said Corbin Brown, a salesman from Las Vegas....
Although Harrison and Russell frequently are seen in the shop signing autographs and meeting fans, it’s unlikely you will catch them selling at the counter, Benton said. That’s about the only part of the show that’s misleading.
He says “Pawn Stars” is never scripted, and the people seen on TV are authentic.
As for the merchandise on the show, Benton said there’s a good chance “it came through the doors to one of my guys.”
The pawn brokers Benton manages typically spot unique items and show them to producers who decide if they are worthy of broadcasting.
Once an item is deemed “possible TV material,” its seller is coached on how to act while on camera, said Rocco Landi, a Chicago native who does “pretty much everything” as a weapons expert and salesman.
Some people have a great item to sell, but they appear nervous on film. It can take several tries to get it right, depending on the person, Landi said.
Producers have cut items from the show because the seller could not “pull it together” on camera, but it doesn’t happen often, he said.
“It’s a give-and-take thing,” Landi said. “We wouldn’t have this if it weren’t for the show.”
Fact is, Rick and the others on Pawn Stars cannot conduct business when they are not filming, unless the shop is closed-meaning at night.  The reason is that the pawn business is supposed to be confidential and if you have Rick or Chumlee doing business during regular hours, with all the autograph and camera hound out there, they are unable to do any business except what is for television or a very large transaction.
So, if you want to do normal business at the Pawn Stars store, don't bother if you expect any members of the cast to wait on you... unless you have a very unusual item.   Then they may talk to you, after going through the TV people first.

Relax: Packers Win A Big One

From ESPN: Aaron Rodgers made trademark pinpoint passes. Eddie Lacy powered out tough yards on the ground. The defense held firm in a frantic fourth quarter.
This could be one super combination for the Green Bay Packers.
Rodgers threw for 368 yards and two touchdowns, and Green Bay fended off the New England Patriots 26-21 Sunday in a high-profile matchup between Super Bowl contenders.
"We have some big goals, and we're getting into December football now with a chance with everything right in front of us," Rodgers said.
He bested Tom Brady in the first meeting between the star quarterbacks as starters. They were the main attractions in a down-to-the-wire thriller.
Rodgers connected with Richard Rodgers and Jordy Nelson for long touchdowns in the first half.
Leading by five, the defense made a late stand for the Packers (9-3). With Green Bay back in zone coverage, Mike Daniels and Mike Neal combined to sack Brady on third down for a 9-yard loss, and kicker Stephen Gostkowski pushed a 47-yard field-goal attempt wide right with 2:40 left.
The Packers sealed it after Rodgers converted to Cobb on third-and-4 with the Patriots out of timeouts.
When the Packers were like1-3, Aaron Rodgers said relax to the Packer fans.
And since then, the Packers have been 8-1.
Relax, the Packers are going to the playoffs.

This Shows That Some Football Players Are Brain Damaged

From Fox News: A St. Louis police officers' group called on the NFL to punish five Rams players who stood with their hands raised before trotting onto the field for pregame introductions Sunday. 
The St. Louis Police Officers' Association said it was "profoundly disappointed" with what it called a "display that police officers around the nation found tasteless, offensive and inflammatory." It called for the players involved to be disciplined and for both the league and team to issue a "very public apology."
The so-called "hands up, don't shoot" gesture has been commonly used by demonstrators protesting the decision of a St. Louis County grand jury to not indict Officer Darren Wilson in the August 9 shooting death of 18-year-old Michael Brown in suburban Ferguson. Some witnesses said Brown, who was black, had his hands up before being fatally shot by Wilson, who is white. 
Prior to kickoff of their game against the Oakland Raiders, Rams wide receivers Tavon Austin and Kenny Britt came out together and raised their hands, but the move was obscured by a smoke machine in the upper reaches of the Edward Jones Dome. Jared Cook, Stedman Bailey and Chris Givens then came out and stood together with hands raised in the fog....
SLPOA Business Manager Jeff Roorda was quoted in a statement released by the organization as saying " All week long, the Rams and the NFL were on the phone with the St. Louis Police Department asking for assurances that the players and the fans would be kept safe from the violent protesters who had rioted, looted, and burned buildings in Ferguson ... then, as the players and their fans sit safely in their dome under the watchful protection of hundreds of St. Louis's finest, they take to the turf to call a now-exonerated officer a murderer, that is way out-of-bounds, to put it in football parlance."...
"I'd remind the NFL and their players that it is not the violent thugs burning down buildings that buy their advertiser's products," Roorda added. "It's cops and the good people of St. Louis and other NFL towns that do. Somebody needs to throw a flag on this play. If it's not the NFL and the Rams, then it'll be cops and their supporters
I'll give the football players the benefit of the doubt that the players involved have suffered from numerous concussions and are unable to think straight.
Otherwise, these players are totally uninformed and they support a thug over cops.
But since NFL players have a history of being arrested, then maybe they do hate cops.
Maybe we ought to boycott any product the St. Louis Rams put out, but then, I am a P:acker's fan, so no money of mine would go for a Ram's product.

Shopping Observations

This year, I worked a fairly large retain box store (not Wal-Mart) and I worked Wednesday thru today and I have these observations:
On Wednesday- the store was quiet.
Thursday (Thanksgiving) it was quiet until about 6:00 PM and then the hordes of shoppers arrived and then many of them acted like they were on meth.  We sold a lot of trampolines this day, meaning that the orthopedic doctors will have job security for another year.
Black Friday: Customers again were zipping around the store like they were on meth.  Sold a lot of TVs this day.
Saturday: The old and slow shoppers arrived. Many of them looked clueless, like this was the first time they went shopping.  They stood around the store looking completely lost.  A lot of people brought in their pet dogs today- for emotional support perhaps?
I guess the rest of the days leading up to Christmas will be steady, with a mixture of meth head shoppers and the old and slow.  Hopefully, they will not get together in the same aisle or a nasty customer crash may occur.

I Agree With The GOP Aide

The girls looked bored during the annual Thanksgiving address.
From the NY Daily News: A Republican House staffer ridiculed the first daughters’ Thanksgiving Day outfits ― and suggested the 13- and 16-year-old girls looked like they were heading to a bar.
Elizabeth Lauten, communications director for Rep. Stephen Fincher (R-Tenn.), blasted Malia and Sasha Obama for their ‘classless’ attitudes during the presidential Thanksgiving address on national television. In a vicious Facebook rant, she also scoffed at their “disrespectful” wardrobes, The Root reported.
The teen girls appeared at their father’s side Thursday as he delivered the annual address on national television. Many people joked about their unimpressed scowls, pointing out that even the President is just embarrassing dad to his girls.
But Lauten found the slight eye rolls and smirks offensive
“Dear Sasha and Malia, I get you’re both in those awful teenage years, but you’re a part of the first Family, try showing a little class,” she wrote in a since-deleted Facebook post, which was quickly screen grabbed by Yesha Callahan, a writer for The Root.
She continued: “Then again your mother and father don’t respect their positions very much, or the nation for that matter, so I’m guessing you’re coming up a little short in the ‘good role model’ department.”
Then, she attacked what the girls were wearing.FacebookElizabeth Lauten, a Republican house staffer, slammed the teenage girls in a Facebook rant.
“Dress like you deserve respect, not a spot at a bar. And certainly don’t make faces during televised, public events,” she wrote.
Sasha wore a short dress, paired with a long cardigan, mid-calf socks and boots, while Malia wore a mini plaid skirt, sweater and tights.
Lauten deleted the rant a few hours later and issued an apology:
I'm sorry but the dresses/shorts the girls are wearing are way too short.
These girls would not pass dress code, if they worse these clothes to school.  The standard rule is that girls should not wear shorts/dresses if the shorts/dresses are 2 finger widths above the knees and what these two girls are wearing way more than 2 finger widths above the knee.
And yes, these girls are wearing shorts/dresses that some hookers in Vegas would wear.
But since Obama spends so much time in Vegas, maybe his girls are trying to fit right in.

Who Knew Cricket Is A Dangerous Sport?

From the LVRJ: Israeli police says a 60-year-old man has died after being struck in the face by a ball while working as an umpire at a cricket match in the coastal city of Ashdod.
Police spokeswoman Luba Samri says the man was hit by a ball during a league game Saturday and that no foul play was suspected. He was evacuated to hospital where he was pronounced dead.
Saturday’s accident comes just two days after professional Australian cricket player Phillip Hughes died from injuries he sustained after being struck by a ball.
Witnesses told Israeli media a batsman struck a ball and it rebounded off the stumps to hit the umpire, who was not wearing protective gear.
Cricket remains a niche game in Israel and played mostly among a tight-knit group of expatriates.
2 Cricket deaths in a week.
Who knew Cricket was so dangerous?

Democrat Denies Vote To Woman Disabled Veteran

Image result for funny picture of nancy pelosi
From Politico: Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi rebuffed criticism on Monday that Democrats are keeping a pregnant congresswoman from voting during leadership elections, arguing that allowing a proxy vote creates a slippery slope for missing members.
During a caucus meeting last week, Rep. Tammy Duckworth (D-Ill.) asked to be allowed to vote in leadership and ranking member elections by proxy as she is unable to travel to Washington because of her pregnancy.
The motion was rejected as the rules for the House Democratic caucus do not allow for proxy voting. Pelosi said she did not understand the “fuss” around the Democrats’ decision.
“You’re going to establish a situation where you’re  going to determine who has a note from the doctor that’s valid…it’s really a place we shouldn’t go down,” Pelosi said. Adding that the decision “shouldn’t be confused with not having family and medical leave.”
Read more:
The Democrats have no problem allowing anybody, whether they are U.S. citizens or not, to vote.
But when it comes to voting House Democrats voting for other House Democrats, well then, they won't even allow a legitimate doctors note to allow a House member to vote.
What a horrible bunch of hypocrites, with the worst being Nancy Pelosi.

WI. Badgers in The Big 10 Championship Game

Once again the Wisconsin Badgers will be playing in the Big 10 Big 11 Big 12, Big 13, Big 14 Championship against Ohio State.  They will be playing next weekend in Indianapolis, in a dome and on fake grass.
From ESPN: With Paul Bunyan's Axe back in his team's possession for another year, Melvin Gordon jumped for joy in the locker room after a victory over a bitter Big Ten rival.
A Wisconsin win Saturday night to claim a berth in next week's league championship game sure made it easier for Gordon to withstand any pain from a sore right ankle.
Gordon ran for 151 yards and accounted for two scores, Joel Stave threw for 215 yards and two touchdown passes and the 14th-ranked Badgers rallied from a two-touchdown deficit to beat Minnesota (No. 18 CFP, No. 22 AP) 34-24 to take the West Division title.
Melvin, he looked great. He was jumping around pretty good there in the locker room," coach Gary Andersen said. "He should be just fine."
Next stop: Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis next week to play Ohio State for the Big Ten title.
It was not easy. Physical Minnesota (8-4, 5-3) let a 17-3 lead early in the second quarter slip away. David Cobb ran for 118 yards on 25 carries, including a 40-yard score.
Stave's 17-yard touchdown pass to Robert Wheelwright with 4:41 left in the game gave the Badgers (10-2, 7-1) a 10-point lead, and Wisconsin's defense held from there.
"We'll bounce back but there aren't any of (us) happy about the axe," Minnesota coach Jerry Kill said.
Wisconsin (10-2, 7-1) completed another rally from an early hole. Just two weeks ago, the Badgers fell behind early to Nebraska before storming back for a big victory.
The Badgers have a good chance to win the Championship since the Buckeyes lost their star quarterback when he broke his leg against Michigan.  So, if the Badgers win next week, they will be bowling in a major bowl game.

Too Bad

From the LVRJ:
On the eve of UNLV’s emotional game against UNR, the Rebels made an announcement that was surprising only in the timing.
Bobby Hauck will resign Monday as the Rebels’ football coach after five seasons, and he said in a text message that timing the announcement for late afternoon Friday as a way to further fire up his team for today’s 7:30 p.m. game at Sam Boyd Stadium, where UNLV will attempt to keep the Fremont Cannon that it took from UNR last year.
Hauck broke the news to his players at 3:30 p.m. Friday.
“We were given an opportunity to get it done here at UNLV, and we simply did not win enough games,” Hauck said in a statement through the athletic department. “It’s my responsibility to push the program forward, and I wish we would have produced better results.”
Bobby Hauck is a good man and a champion in NCAA football.
The UNLV is a football program is a disgrace, not caused by Hauck but by a lack of support of UNLV and it's supporters.
The UNLV alumni, students and administration do not support the football program, even though UNLV has had several quality coaches come through to try their best.
Maybe it is time for UNLV to drop football or send it down to the minor leagues.

Time To Drink More Coke

Image result for picture of coca cola
From Fox News: American Federation of Teachers, one of the largest teachers unions in the United States, passed a resolution last week to ban Coca-Cola from its facilities and events.
The teachers union stated its decision was based on human rights violations, which have been detailed in three books published several years ago.
The questions remain: why now and why is this important to a teachers union?
Because AFT is a labor organization, it will stand in solidarity with other labor organizations that have taken a stance against Coca-Cola, AFT spokesman Michael Heenan told
Coca-Cola responded to AFT’s claims in an email to, saying they were based on “outdated and erroneous allegations that we have repeatedly addressed.”
This may be more about the union resenting the beverage companies’ practice of subcontracting instead of hiring permanent employees, which is cited in the AFT resolution, said Larry Sand, president of the California Teachers Empowerment Network.
“Obviously they (Coca-Cola) were not using unionized workers,” Sand said.
This was probably to avoid having to deal with the costs associated with unionized employees, he added.
So, as a teacher who does not belong to any union, I proudly say drink more Coke products and the hell with the AFT.
It would be nice if the AFT stuck with issues that affect teachers, like pay, abusive students and getting rid of Common Core.
So, bottoms up and here's having a drink of Coke.

And This Relates To Michael Brown How???

From the LA Times: Dozens of people have interrupted holiday shopping at major retail stores around the St. Louis area to speak out about a grand jury’s decision not to indict the officer who fatally shot Michael Brown.
The protests began Thanksgiving night and continued early Friday. Protesters spent a few minutes at each store, shouting inside as law enforcement stood watch. There was no immediate word of any arrests.
According to Johnetta Elzie, who had been tweeting and posting videos of the protests, demonstrations occurred at a Wal-Mart and Target in Brentwood, two Wal-Marts in St. Charles and one Wal-Mart in Manchester.
In the suburb of Ferguson, where Brown was shot on Aug. 9, it was a quiet holiday night. There were no visible protests as the National Guard patrolled the area.
So, how is protesting a cop killing a thug relate to thug Michael Brown, other than the thug brown probably shopped at a Wal-Mart?
It's not, but it apparently the thug protestors have other agendas.

Thugs R Us

Image result for picture of new black panthers
From the NY Daily News: Two members of the New Black Panthers in St. Louis planned to use the chaos in the post-Darren Wilson grand jury announcement to bomb the iconic Gateway Arch and kill prosecutor Bob McCulloch and Ferguson top cop Tom Jackson, local media reports.
Both Brandon Orlando Baldwin and Olajuwon Ali Davis were busted Nov. 20 giving false information while buying two pistols at a suburban Missouri Cabela’s outdoors store, federal prosecutors say.
But the plot went deeper than that. The two bought what they thought was a pipe bomb in a federal sting, and were thwarted from buying more because they needed to wait to get more cash on one man’s girlfriend’s Electronic Benefit Transfer card, sources told the St. Louis Post-Dispatch.
EBT cards are used to distribute welfare funds to low-income households.
The men allegedly tried to buy two Hi-Point .45-caliber pistols for someone else sometime between Nov. 1 and Nov. 13 at a Hazelwood, Mo. Cabela’s, the federal indictment alleges. Both are charged with aiding and abetting the making of a false written statement made in connections with a firearms purpose.
The suspects were arrested four days before McCulloch, the St. Louis county prosecuting attorney, announced that a grand jury declined to indict Wilson in the fatal August shooting of unarmed teen Michael Brown.
And of course, they used government welfare checks to finance their terrorism.
And will we hear anything from Obama about these Black terrorists or will Obama say it's just a misunderstanding?
Like muslims who refuse to condemn terrorism by fellow muslims, the Black community is slowly going in this direction by refusing to condemn Black on Black crime and their failure to condemn Black terrorism. 
The same goes with Obama- he needs to condemn the New Black Panther Party and the rest of their ilk.  And we only get silence from Obama and Holder when it comes to these groups.

Foothill Marching Band At Macy's Parade

My daughter used to march for the Foothill ban, so I know how hard these kids worked, both practicing and raising money for the trip.

The Apple Doesn't Fall Far From The Tree

From the NY Daily News: The mother of Michael Brown could be charged with felony armed robbery for allegedly attacking people in a Ferguson, Mo., parking lot because they were selling T-shirts honoring the late teenager.
The Ferguson Police Department is currently investigating claims that Lesley McSpadden brought a group of people — including her own mother — to beat vendors and rob them of their “Justice for Mike Brown” merchandise Oct. 18, The Smoking Gun has learned.
One person was hospitalized in the reported attack and another unidentified alleged victim was reportedly beaten with a pipe.
McSpadden’s former mother-in-law, Pearlie Gordon, was among those beaten by “a large group of about 20-30 subjects” who had “jumped out of vehicles and rushed” the group of sellers, according to the police report.
Gordon, 54, was allegedly knocked to the ground and repeatedly struck in the head. She detailed the brief exchange she had with McSpadden at the time of the attack.
“You can’t sell this s**t,” McSpadden allegedly said, according to the report.
Gordon responded that “unless McSpadden could produce documentation stating that she had a patent on her son’s name (Gordon) was going to continue to sell her merchandise,” according to the report.AmazonCountless T-shirts and other 'Justice for Michael Brown' merchandise are being sold online. Similar items were allegedly stolen by Brown's mother and others.
More than $1500 in merchandise and $400 in cash was allegedly stolen by the attackers.
And then you wonder why Michael Brown was a thug.
Because the apple doesn't fall far from the tree.

Las Vegas Marching Band Marching In Macy's Parade

From Fox 5 Las Vegas:
Wednesday night rehearsals have been a routine for the Foothill High School marching band since August.
Wednesday night was their final one before they head out to New York City for the annual Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade.The opportunity could literally be one in a million. Foothill is only one of six high school bands in the country that were selected to participate.
"I just like performing. I like performing and I like the deal we'll be performing in front of millions of people," said senior drum major Lydia Harris.
"They've performed for several thousand people at a time, but millions is much different," said Foothill director of bands Travis Pardee.
The 300 students traveling at a cost of $2,000 each are guaranteed 90 seconds of national air time during the parade.
Fifty million people will be watching on television, plus another 3.5 million will be along the three-mile parade route.
On Wednesday night, the band marched 12 times around their quarter-mile track. It was the first time they marched three miles straight before the parade.
Legs were wobbly, arms were sore, but the pain will be worth the fame.
"It's so worth it. It's such an amazing feeling. It's such an honor to march in the Macy's Parade," said senior flute player Taylor Catlett.
The band will be traveling out of Las Vegas on five separate flights on Sunday. The trips will cost an estimated $650,000 for students, faculty and chaperones.
Read more:
Sadly, there are members of Henderson/Las Vegas/CCSD community are mooching off the student's fundraising and have invited themselves to the parade at little or no cost.
However, it is a great honor for Foothill H.S. to marching at Macy's and I am sure they are having a good time, except of course, they have to get up at 2:00 AM to get ready for the parade.

Happy Thanksgiving

Strange: Cricket Player Killed In Accident While Batting

From the Sydney Morning Herald:  Australian cricketer Phillip Hughes has died in hospital, two days after he was struck on the head by a cricket ball while playing in a Sheffield Shield match at the Sydney Cricket Ground.
Australian team doctor Peter Brukner said in a statement released by Cricket Australia on Thursday afternoon that Hughes had died at St Vincent's Hospital. 
"He never regained consciousness following his injury on Tuesday," he said. 
"He was not in pain before he passed and was surrounded by his family and close friends.
"As a cricket community we mourn his loss and extend our deepest sympathies to Phillip's family and friends at this incredibly sad time....
Hughes, 25, was in an induced coma since the accident on Tuesday afternoon.
Hughes was hit on the side of the head when he attempted to hook the bouncer.
While he seemed to compose himself, the former Test opener leant forward, put his hands on his knees and, after a few seconds, suddenly collapsed head-first on to the pitch.
It was horrific, and the desperation of the moment was reflected by the way the umpires and his former teammates raced to his aid.
I know next to nothing about cricket but after reading the coverage, this would be like Aaron Rodgers dying after being tackled on the football field.

More Evidence Obama Hate Americans

Image result for picture of illegal immigrants crossing the border
From Fox News:
Businesses reportedly will have a $3,000-per-employee incentive to hire illegal immigrants over native-born workers under President Obama’s sweeping action on illegal immigration.
Because of a kink in ObamaCare, businesses will not face a penalty for not providing illegal immigrants health care, The Washington Times reports. Illegal immigrants are ineligible for public benefits such as buying insurance on ObamaCare’s health exchanges.
Congressional aides condemned the loophole saying it puts illegal immigrants ahead of Americans in the job hunt.
“If it is true that the president’s actions give employers a $3,000 incentive to hire those who came here illegally, he has added insult to injury,” Rep. Lamar Smith, Texas Republican told The Washington Times. “The president’s actions would have just moved those who came here illegally to the front of the line, ahead of unemployed and underemployed Americans.”
Fighting hecklers in Chicago Tuesday, Obama praised the contributions to the U.S. by a broad patchwork of immigrants, saying it is imperative that the U.S. act now to change its broken immigration policy. He cited studies showing that immigrants open one-fourth of all new U.S. businesses and that 40 percent of Fortune 500 companies were founded by immigrants or their children.
"Being a nation of immigrants gives us this huge entrepreneurial advantage over other nations," he said.
Obama’s executive action could make nearly 5 million immigrants eligible to avoid deportation.
At issue is the extent of Obama's executive actions. The measures would apply to parents of U.S. citizens or of legal permanent residents. The parents would have to have lived in the U.S. for at least five years. Obama also expanded a program designed to extend deportation protections to immigrants who entered the U.S. illegally as children.
I do give Obama an "A" for gamesmanship because he puts the GOP in awkward place of using ObamaCare in the immigration battle.
But businesses should not be hiring illegals-ever.  Let them go through the legal process of hiring people who are here legally-even if they are from other countries.
And if we find out a company hires illegals, a boycott of that business should occur.

He Has No Reason To Apoligize

From Fox News: The Ferguson, Mo. police officer who shot and killed an unarmed black teenager in August said in an interview aired on Tuesday that there was "no way" Michael Brown had his hands up right before he was killed -- disputing one of the core controversies at the heart of a case that touched off nationwide protests and racial unrest.
In his first public statements since a grand jury declined to indict him on charges of murder and manslaughter, Darren Wilson told ABC's George Stephanopoulos that Brown, 18, started an altercation between the two on Aug. 9 when he reached into the officer's squad car and began assaulting him, punching him twice in the face and reaching for his sidearm.
Wilson, who reportedly is 6-foot-4 and weighs around 210 pounds, said he reached for his gun only when he began to fear for his life, and he struggled with the 6-foot-3, nearly 300-pound Brown over control of the weapon. Shots were fired inside the car, causing Brown to flee, and Wilson then chased after him on foot, telling Stephanopoulos he had "to see where this guy goes."
According to Wilson, Brown then stopped, turned and began charging at him, at which point the officer fired several shots, hitting Brown several times, including a fatal wound to the head.
Wilson told Stephanopoulos he would have acted the same way if circumstances were repeated.
"The reason I have a clean conscience is I know I did my job right," Wilson said, adding that he would have made the same decisions had Brown, who was black, been a white man.
Wilson has no reason to apologize.
He was facing a life threatening situation by a thug who had just robbed a store, assaulted the owner, was high on drugs and then assaulted a police officer.  Even after he was shot, the thug kept on charging the cop.
The cop did his job and the world is better off that he did.
Sucks the thug died, especially for the family, but let's face it, if the thug lived, who knows what other crimes this thug would have committed in the next 10-20 years.  At the rate he was going, he probably would have killed an innocent person or two.
Would the rioters be happy if the thug lived and went on to commit worse crimes?
Yeah, they would have been.

Obama : The POS President

Once again, President Obama flies to Chicago to give a speech and once again, he refuses to talk about the murders and black on black crime in Obamaville, where he owns a house which is guarded 24/7 by the Secret Service.
From the Chicago Tribune: Saying the American experience was formed by "stitching together folks from different backgrounds," President Barack Obama used a Polish cultural center in Chicago as a backdrop Tuesday to draw a line between immigration reform and unease over a Missouri police shooting.
Speaking to a multiethnic gathering at the Copernicus Center on the Northwest Side, Obama condemned sporadic violence that has erupted in the wake of Monday's grand jury decision not to indict a Ferguson, Mo., police officer for shooting and killing an unarmed black teenager during a controversial altercation in August.
Obama condemns violence in Ferguson, MO, as well he should but the POS president won't say a damn word about all the black on black violence in his own home town, where multiple shootings occur just about every weekend and these shootings result in several deaths.
And Obama has gone to Chicago many times and he continues to refuse to condemn Black on Black violence or any other kind of violence in ObamaVille.
President Obama: Our first real POS president of the United States.

Let's See Who The Majority Of Blacks Support And Don't Support

Image result for picture of clarence thomas
Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas
A role model for Black youth

Let's See who the majority of Blacks, especially young Blacks support:
Athletes, especially those who celebrate the smallest accomplishments on the athletic field/court
Gangsters/Gangster wannabes
Black actors who portray murder, violence and treat women badly
Reality stars
Black comedians who drop the F-bomb every other word
High school drop outs
Some criminals
Liberal politicians
Anybody who appears on Jerry Springer type shows

And look at the Black people they don't support:
Justice Clarence Thomas
Condoleezza Rice
Dr. Ben Carson
Up until last week, Bill Cosby
Herman Cain
And other Blacks who are conservative
And then you wonder why we had riots in St. Louis County, Missouri.
The thugs rioting are not conservatives, they are liberals.
And liberals lash out when they don't get their way, just like spoiled little babies.
You don't see conservatives rioting when things don't go their way.  We didn't riot when Obama illegal ordered amnesty for millions of law breakers.
We didn't riot over ObamaCare.
We didn't riot when O.J. was found not guilty of murdering 2 white people.
We didn't riot when Obama was elected president two times, possibly stealing the election on at least 1 occasion.
With the Tea Party, we just get even, sooner or later.  But we don't riot.
Blacks and liberals riot or resort to destroying a person's reputation.
Maybe if more Blacks were conservative, maybe they will realize that the Black community are slaves to liberals and the liberal plantation.
Blacks who excel in academics

Foothill High School Band In New York City During Protests

The CCSD Foothill High School marching band is in New York City right now, and there is a massive protest very close to where the band is staying tonight.
They are in New York to march in the Macy's Thanksgiving Parade.
What a learning experience.
