R.I.P. George Blanda

Another hero of mine.
"Against the Cleveland Browns, Blanda entered the game with a little more than four minutes to play and the Raiders down by a touchdown. He threw a touchdown pass, kicked the extra point, drove the team into position for the winning field goal and kicked it — that 52-yarder — with three seconds on the clock.
The next Sunday, he beat Denver with a late touchdown pass; the Sunday after that, he beat San Diego with a last-minute field goal. Five straight weeks he saved the game; he was 43 at the time."
The quote, pic, and more details on his great career here.

No Such Thing As a Free Commute

At least there no longer will be in New Jersy. Toll booth collectors in the Garden State have been allowed to drive toll-free for 50 years now. Governor Christie is putting an end to that.

He's obviously picking a fight here. Trying to piss off every union in the state. It couldn't save much money when you look at the big picture but it certainly is symbolic.

I'm sitting across the river loving NJ politics, knowing that the same sort of political fun is coming to Pa. should we elect Tom Corbett.

Here's the link to a humorous, yet pointed Cavuto commentary that reflects some intelligent economic thought.

This on a day when Barry O'B is reportedly going to appoint a 41 year old college professor turned campaign adviser to head his economic team--further evidence that this Govt. in the White House "knows nothing". At the very least, I'm confident Mr. Goolsbee knows nothing about what it would take to motivate entrepreneurs to take a risk and hire some folks.

The No Nancy Pledge

Dems in competitive House districts all over the country are running away from the O'B Administration, running ads bragging about how they are "independent", that they'll "stand up against the powers in Washington". Bragging that they voted against ObamaCare.

Well . . . maybe it's time to prove how "independent" they really are.

I challenge them to take the No Nancy Pledge. It's very simple: "I pledge that I will never vote for Nancy Pelosi for Speaker of the House of Representatives."

My guess is that many Republicans would sign on within hours. Might be harder to get those Dems to do so.

Look for it on Facebook.

I found the lovely photo here.

They Just Want the Bacon

In honor of International Bacon Day, which is today. A couple years old but still relevant.

45 days in jail? They oughta put the pony-tailed do-gooder in the clink for 45 days for abuse of power.
