Quick Hits

Tiring of Obama's Tactics - It will be interesting to see how Obama's decision to slap punitive tariffs on tires made in China will affect not just the American consumer with higher prices, but also our trade relationship with China. Is it just me, or has the President clearly placed a higher value on union payback and support, based on their bogus claims of union job losses, than he does on doing what's in the best interest of the country? The move is clearly political to maintain union support for his healthcare disaster. But how does he expect to bite the hand that feeds him without consequences? Can he really expect that China will continue to finance his massive spending when he makes a decision like this? Has anyone been to DC lately and can you tell me what color the sky is in their world?

- I'm beginning to think that that whole Kanye West debacle was staged to generate publicity for MTV and West. No matter how much he apologizes on this tour of late night talk shows, his career deserves the irreparable harm he's generated for himself. And yes, Mr. West, please do take some time off for reflection. It's all about you anyways. Just goes to further prove what a self-indulgent society we have become.

Yale Grad Student Murder - I'm very interested to know just HOW one is able to get a body inside a wall of an existing building? This is one strange case.

Offensive Football - Here we go again. A small group of seven Native Americans finds the Washington football name to be offensive and is asking the SCOTUS to side with them. I'm not a Native American, but it appears to me that we have more important matters to put before the court, as well as the Native American community, do we not?

Samurai Justice - Can anyone explain to me just why the prosecutors are considering filing charges against a college student who was protecting his property as well as his own well-being by killing a burglar with a samurai sword? Is there any justice in this country anymore for people who AREN'T criminals?

The Big Roadhouse - Patrick Swayze passed yesterday after a battle with pancreatic cancer. Pancreatic cancer is one of the most deadly cancers and usually carries a prognosis of 6 months or less on diagnosis. Swayze fought for almost a year and a half. Guess God needed "Dalton" in His Roadhouse...
