” The National Football League has been infested with political correctness, and the league has decided that a punchy and poignant ad promoting self-defense just doesn’t make the cut.
The National Football League can no longer be trusted to be apolitical; whether it’s Bob Costas’ ignorant rants at halftime games or the month-long, unnecessary pink regalia, or the incessant babbling about
hazing bullying or treating us to baseless chatter about ineffective gun control – the radicals have hijacked the league with the intention of ruining it.
Mission accomplished: the manly, competitive game of football is increasingly shunned and the sport’s youth participation is plummeting. A nation full of whiny weaklings – that’s the left’s utopia.”
Don’t forget the NFL’s cooperation with the Obama administration in trying to sell Obamacare . Our “leaders” in that cesspit we call Washington have managed to corrupt and co-opt virtually all of the entertainment industries in the pursuit of the Statist agenda .
Remember who supports liberty and individual responsibility and who supports Statism when it comes time to spend your hard-earned entertainment dollars . It used to be that all we had to worry about was Hollywood but now even the sports franchises are being infected with the rot of political cronyism .
” The Navy Jack is the ‘don’t tread on me’ flag, one that has earned a revered place in America’s naval history and a beloved place in sailor’s hearts, through its use for over two centuries. This symbol of America’s naval ferocity has spanned our country’s entire existence, flying from the masts of the Continental Navy during the war of independence, to today’s War on Terror. In fact, an amendment to the Navy code called SECNAV Instruction 10520.6 clearly states that as of 31 May 2002 all ships are to fly the flag throughout the duration of the War on Terror.
So why would ranking SEAL commanders ban the historical symbol? Is the proverbial top bass banning the flag? Is President Obama? “” The Navy Jack is the ‘don’t tread on me’ flag, one that has earned a revered place in America’s naval history and a beloved place in sailor’s hearts, through its use for over two centuries.

For the uninitiated here are some links to the storied history of the Navy Jack , a history that is irrevocably entwined with the history of our country itself and beautifully reflects the “radicalism” of the Founders and our great nation .
” What is the meaning of life? The answer is worth $24,953, at least according to the National Endowment for the Humanities, a taxpayer-funded federal agency that is providing an educational grant to study the question.
“What is the good life and how do I live it?” Well, for $25,000 in tax dollars, NEH has tasked someone with finding out.
Sessions has personally taken a closer look at the NEH grant program and now has “questions” about some of the awards that have been granted, including one for $24,999 to determine, “What is a monster?
Here are a few more examples of recent educational program grants:
— Why are we interested in the past? $24,803
— Why are people bad? $23,390
— What is belief? $24,526
— Why do humans write? $24,774
The NEH spends about $150 million annually, though Republicans recently proposed slashing its budget by half.”
We can save the taxpayers $25k . The State is the monster . Plain and simple .
” In the latest example of small-mindedness plaguing our educational system, schools around the country are attempting to ban costumes and candy on what is surely one of most kids’ favorite days of the year. The excuses range from vague concerns about “safety” to specific worries about food allergies to—get this—fears of breaching the wall of separation between church and state.
But whatever the motivation, the end result is the same as what Charlie Brown used to get every time he went trick-or-treating: a big old rock in the candy bag. What sort of lesson are we teaching our kids when we ban even a tiny, sugar-coated break in their daily grind (or, even worse, substitute a generic, Wicker Man-style “Fall Festival” for Halloween)? Mostly that we are a society that is so scared of its own shadow that we can’t even enjoy ourselves anymore. We live in fear of what might be called the killjoy’s veto, where any complaint is enough to destroy even the least objectionable fun.”

Marine Corps Times
” The inclusion of women in infantry training is part of the Marine Corps’ extensive research process stemming from the Defense Department’s historic decision earlier this year to repeal its Direct Combat Exclusion Rule, enacted in 1994. The move opened about 237,000 jobs to women across all of the services, including nearly 54,000 jobs in the Marine Corps. While some troops see it as a step toward equal rights, others contend it will weaken the military’s combat units.”
