The State of America

We have is a structural problem and I blame it on a couple of people. My mother said years ago that when we stop building stuff we would be in trouble. She couldn't have been more right.

First Ronald Reagan came and dismantled the faith in the government and pitted people against people and people against government. He weakened the concept of a strong federal government. this idea has festered for 35 years and is very damaging to the country. We experimented with a weak central government and that was the articles of confederation and we all know how that turned out.

Then he emboldened the south who always votes in a bloc and now runs the republican party. The idea of an economy in the south is stealing business from the north. Rick perry does that every day. how does stealing business from the north help the country. the south should never be in the mix to decide how we run our economy. they have been and will always care first about the south and then the country. they are and will always be the least patriotic people in America.

"American by birth southern by the grace of God" Do you see that kind of saying anywhere else in the country.

Secondly, Bill Clinton initiated Nafta and the end of Glass Steagall. nice work How did that turn out?

We don't build anything aka low paying jobs. Germany out produces us in finished products with 80 million people and they are not paying minimum wage and driving wages down.

Finally, Business school teaches the same crap that I took in 1970. I looked at UGA business school and it’s the same courses I took and that was based on a manufacturing society. Not a single course on sales and as far as I know no sales no business.

Also shareholder value is all they care about. not running a business to be a great business. One of my friends was at Sun and this "MBA' manager was limiting them to $10. for sushi while they were making money hand over fist and all she could say to everyone was 'share holder value".

Shortsighted. Don't build a business to only care about shareholder value. Thank you modern business school.

country club criminal throws country club drunk under the bus

Ryder cup- Watson a terrible choice

Even though the Euros are better Watson was the worst choice ever. I find him close to being the mind of a "retired person". He is 65 and he hasn't been in an active state in years. i'm 63 and my mind is sharp and the reason why I am active in business every day. I talk to some of the top lawyers and AGC's in the country. I am talking to super smart people every day and I can't make mistakes. i have to be sharp.i had a top attorney say to the person I sent in for a meeting "He can really spin a yarn"This is a top compliment from a person who spins yarns for a living.

Watson drank alot but the biggest problem is he went on to the senior tour where it is retirement city. I have a good friend who retired last year and this guy is already dropping off.

Watson has had his mind pushed in years.

His decisions on the captains picks and the way he has used his players have been pitiful(Webb Simpson). playing Phil 2 rounds the first day. Phil is 44 he doesn't have the stamina any more plus he had a mediocre year.

He burned out Fowler and Jimmy Williams the second day.

pathetic. He even comes across as feeble minded. Plus he's friends with rush Limbaugh.

Report: Rice video was sent to NFL

Source: ESPN

TLANTIC CITY, N.J. -- A law enforcement official says he sent a video of Ray Rice punching his then-fiancée to an NFL executive five months ago, while league executives have insisted they didn't see the violent images until this week.

The official played The Associated Press a 12-second voicemail from an NFL office number on April 9 confirming the video arrived. A female voice expresses thanks and says: "You're right. It's terrible."

The law enforcement official, speaking to the AP on condition of anonymity because of the ongoing investigation, says he had no further communication with any NFL employee and can't confirm anyone watched the video. He said he was unauthorized to release the video but shared it unsolicited because he wanted the NFL to have it before deciding on Rice's punishment.

We are not aware of anyone in our office who possessed or saw the video before it was made public on Monday. We will look into it.

- NFL spokesman Brian McCarthy
The NFL has repeatedly said it asked for but could not obtain the video of Rice hitting Janay Palmer -- who is now his wife -- at an Atlantic City casino in February.

The league says it has no record of the video and that no one in the league office had seen it until it was released by TMZ on Monday. Asked about the voicemail Wednesday, NFL officials repeated their assertion that no league official had seen the video before Monday.

"We have no knowledge of this," N

TMZ, NFL, DA, Ray Rice and Janay

I know this is flame bait but I have given this incident some thought. Ray Rice did wrong and there is no excuse for hitting a women or anyone else. That being said let's take a look at TMZ and the NFL.

Who made TMZ the arbiter of morality. If they really wanted to do the right thing they would have gone to the NFL and shown them the video and given the NFL time to take the appropriate action. If they didn't then they could have released it to the general public.

The NFL should have suspended Rice for 8 games upfront. They knew he punched her. They were protecting themselves.

As far as I know Ray Rice went through the appropriate channels. He took a plea(which one of us would not have taken a plea). He was going to counseling. He took his suspension. How many of us would have asked for more time?

What TMZ has done is beyond character assassination. They have made him a pariah and Rice is now unemployable in the USA. How is that right? How does that help the family?

Janay was right it was all about TMZ and the media but no one has thought about the family.

The NFL dropped the ball.

It was right for a long suspension it is not right to make someone unemployable.

Let's put the blame on who is responsible for all this racism-Ronald Reagan

The scumbag who started it all. Can we say Philadelphia, MS and welfare queens.

3 shots on goal in 90 minutes

If anyone ever wanted to know the reason why soccer doesn't catch on in America this is it. We just don't like to watch masturbating.

Republican humor at it's finest

Earlier it was mentioned that Eugene Scalia and Phil Alito were both at Gibson Dunn. I don't think Alito is there anymore however read these musings. Is there any wonder why there are no conservative funny people. this is pathetic.

Phil Alito is a rising 3L at Duke Law School (i.e., a member of the class of 2012). He received his undergraduate degree from the University of Virginia — after transferring from Colgate, where he wrote funny stuff for The Forum, “a non-partisan publication that seeks to encourage and facilitate the discussion of contemporary legal, political and social issues.” Check out his editor’s bio:

First, God made the heavens and earth. Then came Arby’s, followed shortly by Carl Jr. and other inferior brands of fast food. Fast foward. Homer’s epics, Texas was created, Davy Crockett, king of the wild frontier, died at the Alamo, King Kong attacked Manhattan, and then, in a completely reactionary move, I was conceived.
I was born 9 months and 2 weeks later by a midwife/wolf named Janie Jean, who would prove very influential during my formative years. Shortly after, I became interested in politics and got involved with Gary Condit (not like that). I served as a parking aide to Nancy Pelosi (I won’t even start on her) but was fired when Barbara Boxer came onto me. Eventually, I decided that my teeth needed to be cleaned, so I came to Colgate with a band of gypsies (who I have declared war on and will one day destroy). I decided to join “The Forum” to make friends but obviously that hasn’t worked out. So, soon I will probably find a cow at a nearby farm and ride my way to glory in either LA or at the Calgary Rodeos.

Alas, Phil Alito’s humorous musings have been scrubbed from the publication’s website.
