From Bill Clinton to Tiger Woods: The Price of Infidelity

Commented Dec 9, 2009 at 12:39:42 in Sports

“sorry, incomplete post.......

Woods transgressions will not "drag the sport of golf down with him", it will drag the BUSINESS of golf (and other sports) - with sponsorships & muliti-millond dollar endorsements - down with him.”

hp blogger Dr. Jim Taylor on Dec 9, 2009 at 13:56:51

“Your insight is much more accurate; the business of golf, not the sport itself. People (mostly men) will continue to play that game that is, for most people, all about hope and aspiration, and rarely about accomplishment!”

“Sadly, it's love and respect for profits over love and respect for one another. This is a baby step in the right direction. America still has a long way to go to catch up with the rest of the world's civilized nations that see the good health and welfare of its people as its greatest asset.”

“FYI there isn't a country in the world with universal health care that doesn't have ridiculous waiting times. People from those countries come HERE. We have the best possible care available, and no it's not free. Neither will ours be if this goes the long distance to actually becoming law.”

Fox News Snub

“As a media consultant, it's time you watched "OUTFOXED, Rupert Murdoch's War on Journalism"
"Outfoxed examines how media empires, led by Rupert Murdoch's Fox News, have been running a "race to the bottom" in television news. This film provides an in-depth look at Fox News and the dangers of ever-enlarging corporations taking control of the public's right to know."

“OurKoan, I was not knocking Americans! (evil??) I was praising Tommy Douglas, Mr Sutherland's former father-in-law. The political will I refer to is seen in few politicians, with the exception of Bernie Sanders., Barney Franks, Anthony Weiner, Nancy Pelosi, Howard Dean who are very vocal. Tommy Douglas fought for universal healthcare, SUCCESSFULLY. Recognizing him is hardly a slam against American politicians.”

“taptaptap: I think it would behoove them to, at the very least - do a little homework about our CDN system - first.
They obviously know absolutely nothing about it. Dems or Repubs. Stunning really. Am still reeeling with SHOCK & AWE - over their ignorance of their closest neighbor and biggest trading partner.
I wonder how many know, that our soldiers are fighting and dying - alongside yours?
I wonder if any of them have ever visited Canada. Looks like NOT. Then again, neither have any of your major newsreaders...lol.”

“The President is a master at strategy. He beat Hillary. He beat McCain. But unfortunately, attacks are not his strength, Progressives are just not good at it. They face a formidable opponent with Conservatives in this regard. I wondered if this was another great strategic move, give the Right enough rope - and they'll hang themselves. Will anyone forget the circus of spring/summer 09 - teabaggers, birthers, death panels, firearms at town halls? Absurd movements, now known around the world, because the Right know how to get a message out. Ya, call them the Lunatic Fringe, but I'll give them this, they know how to mislead with incredible skill. Remember, they sold a bogus war and everyone bought it.

Patiently thinking the Dems were in stealth mode, it was reassuring every time Nancy Pelosi, Kathleen Sebelius and the President announced that a public option had to be part of reform. Now hearing the President say, "the public option, whether we have it or WE DON'T HAVE IT is not the entirety of health care reform" was a kick to the stomach. The President should look at the legacy of Canadian Tommy Douglas, an "unstoppable political force", and how he changed a country for the better. Rachel is spot on.”

“No. Many people sat transfixed with the horrific spectacle of Shock and Awe and shook their heads in disbelief at Colin Powell's performance at the UN with his little vial of powder (and knew who sold them chemicals in the first place) and cards with drawings of mobile missile launchers (with no missiles - scuds?). Even worse was the UN sitting there with straight faces.

The democrats never wanted this bill, and they more than welcomed the distraction from the right about death panels etc, because the media ran with that angle and hid the ugly truth that they (dems) never intended on a public option. Anyone who thinks they dems truly want a public option would do well to rewind back to the run-up to the Iraq war and the printing of yellow ribbons and remember what they thought about those people.

How does it feel?”

Michaela1976 on Aug 18, 2009 at 11:38:30

“They sold a bogus war because Democrats are so afraid of being call weak on national security they voted for it ..

But this fiasco has proven that they in fact ARE weak. No backbone . Spineless. All of Washington is paid off by the lobbyists.. every one of them. That is the problem. Until we the people DEMAND 100% federally funded elections for Congress and the Presidency do not expect to see any reform on anything. That means no private donations whatsoever from corporations or individuals. It means no 2 year long primaries. It means your vote might mean something again.”
