The Election Nears- Most of you readers know when you are being fed literary spin from major news sources. When you notice regular doses of Bush bashing, GOP bashing and daily front page news reports about Rep. Foley's email trysts, you know the liberal media is trying its best to sway voters from voting for Republicans. In some instances, Republicans in office should be removed. However, the same is true of some Democrats that have had checkered pasts (and have gotten away with it from the New York Times, Washington Post, etc.). After all, how long did the media have the Rep. Foley story before going to print? Who were the folks that triggered Foley's demise? Who paid for the investigation and why? Is any of this liberal media and political spin a surprise?
Republican voters and most conservatives voters will, at the end of the day, find it difficult voting for liberal politicians who will appoint their judges after the upcoming election. As we have come to know, liberal judges are in many cases activist judges who, instead of applying the law, make law. Can we afford to elect liberal "Clinton/Kennedy" politicians who would appoint activist judges?
Frustrated conservatives have most assuredly vented opinions against many GOP candidates. In most cases the politicians deserve to hear from unhappy voters. Politicians from all walks of life in Washington have done little to remedy illegal immigration issues, healthcare issues and other important domestic issues. But, what solutions have been presented by liberal opponents? None. Thus, the political strategy is clearly to discredit incumbents while avoiding giving real solutions to alleged national problems. All of this political rhetoric "from the left" has substantial media support for no fee. (Thus, conservative politicians are at a distinct financial disadvantage when it comes to liberal press coverage intended to discredit or anoint certain candidates.)
You readers know all of this stuff; that is why most of you do not believe what you read. Voters know what news sources try to support certain candidates over others. When you prepare to vote in November remember to obtain as much about the candidates as possible from each person running for office…and exercise your right to vote.
USF Bulls Football- Can you believe the USF Bulls beat North Carolina (UNC) at Chapel Hill last Saturday? Not just a win, mind you, but a sound spanking! A host of loyal USF alumni and friends have helped to make USF football one of the most successful sports programs in NCAA history. In fact, last weekend a number of USF fans traveled to Chapel Hill to support the Bulls. We can only hope the football program continues to succeed as a member of the Big East Conference. Go Bulls.
Speaking of football programs in trouble, I notice that at least one online poll reflected that 75% of the pollsters believed Coach Coker of the Miami Hurricanes should retire at the end of the year. Apparently, Miami fans believe the recent on-field football fiasco against FIU should be blamed on the coach.
And then, there are the Gators. Two things for Gator fans: 1) Did the coach make a strategic mistake by not using the running Quarterback when closing-in for a touchdown? and 2) Did Brian Leif "fumble" the ball while attempting a pass (throwing motion) that was ultimately awarded to Auburn? Two big plays that probably decided the game.
FSU? Let's see, they beat Duke. We'll see what kind of team they have when they play Florida. It looks like Coach Bobby has a few coaching issues to resolve before next year.
Kudos to the Belleair Park Board- City Parks in Belleair Beach have a "clean look" thanks to the Park Board.
Jazz Festival This Weekend- Clearwater Jazz Festival is this weekend at Coachman Park in downtown Clearwater. Don't miss the great music, good food and fun with family and friends.
Do You Know Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid? - If you are planning to vote for Democrats in the next election, you should know more about their top leaders who would be running the country.
Nancy Pelosi (D-Cal.) would become Speaker of the House. She is from the San Francisco Area where, politically speaking, she is left of the left. Pelosi is perhaps the most liberal politician in Washington.
Harry Reid (D-Nevada) would become Senate Majority Leader. Reid recently admitted his Senate financial filing was wrong. He was involved in a multi-million dollar real estate deal where he made a huge profit…by use of his own powerful elected office. Reid also has taken free tickets to Los Vegas fights and has sons who made their living as lobbyists in Washington. Reid has been rich while in office.
