The sport that Tebow could play and he would be good at it. Seriously.

The NFL's New Wonderlic Test Revealed!!

George R.R. Martin, a Jets Fan, Not Happy About Revis Trade

It is hard to be a fan of the New York Jets.

They have hardly done anything right since Joe Willie Namath won SuperBowl III, and every time you think maybe they are finally turning the corner, they find some new way to screw things up.

Today the Jets traded Darrelle Revis, the best cornerback in the NFL and far and away the best player on the team. It is never a good idea to trade the best player on your team. The Jets desperately need a shut-down corner, since they do not have a real pass-rush threat, and the only way they ever get any pressure on the opponent's QB is by shutting down his receivers long enough for the rushers to get there. Revis was a huge part of the reason why Rex Ryan's defense has been so good (ups and downs, sure, but still one of the better defenses in the league). So they get rid of him Right.


George, you can give the Jets six dragons, and they'd still lose.

President Romney's Admin would torture the Boston bomber until he implicated Iran.

Fox news would be beating the war dums daily, and just enough Dems would vote to support a war resolution in Iran.

By Fall, there would be a full-scale invasion.

Mad Men! Nooooo!!!

Don't tempt fate!!

Sen. Lindsey Graham: Treat Boston Suspect As An Enemy Combatant

Lindsey Graham tweets:

If captured, I hope Administration will at least consider holding the Boston suspect as enemy combatant for intelligence gathering purposes.

The last thing we may want to do is read Boston suspect Miranda Rights telling him to "remain silent."


When some of you say: "There's no difference between Obama and the Republicans", you really do need to educate yourself.

Why are we so obsessed with the religion/ethnicity/race of these killers?

There have been several discussions about the race/ethnicity/religion of the killers. Why? Why are we so pre-occupied with finding this fact? So that we can hold an entire race/religion/ethnicity accountable?

Let's say that we find out that the killers are muslims. What are we going to do with that information? Go to war with all Muslims all over the world?

Can someone please explain?

Boston. Has. The. Best. Fans. In. The. World.

Boston Bruins Fans Tonight. Amazing.

Gold price fall points to global deflation

The rapid fall in the price of gold over the past few days—its biggest plunge in more than 30 years—is an indication that deflationary tendencies are strengthening throughout the world economy.

The fall in the gold price, despite the flood of money into financial markets indicates that other, more powerful, forces are at work. An examination of the operation of quantitative easing indicates the underlying causes.
The official reason for the historically unprecedented measures being undertaken by the world’s central banks—the injection of trillions of dollars into the monetary system through the purchases of government bonds—is that such emergency action is needed to revive the economy. But the inflow of money is not going beyond the confines of the banks and finance houses.
