Wilson’s outburst a missed luxury in politics

The last few months in politics have revolved around a campaign keystone for Obama: his promise to push through a health care reform bill claiming to help millions of uninsured become insured.  

The majority of the news at the start centered around questioning Obama’s statements on how the bill could be afforded and what exactly it would entail.  Then, as time went on and people began doing research, many found Obama was blowing smoke up the people’s collective butt, because the numbers failed to verify the possibility that government sponsored health care was possible under the Obama plan.

Wednesday added to Obama’s health plan woes during his speech to the nation, with the now infamous Joe Wilson’s “You Lie!” moment.

Punch heard ’round the NCAA

Today’s headlines may read “Boise State beats Oregon,” for the ugly display of what football isn’t supposed to look like among those with BCS implications. It was perhaps the most horrifically played game I’ve watched in years, with the sheer number of dumb penalties and the third and fourth quarter turnover race, this game ranked up there in sheer inconsistency and ugliness.

Sadly enough, the game could have either been a blowout by Boise State if they capitalized on their laundry list of mistakes, or it could have been Oregon singing songs of joy at destroying the BCS hopes of Boise State in the first week of play.

Instead, both teams looked terrible and suddenly the rest of Boise State’s first-thought cupcake schedule looks a bit more interesting, especially if the team finds itself coughing up the ball in crucial situations repeatedly. Oregon gave the brand new Pac-10 commissioner a headache to deal with on his first week in his new job, and did nothing to help the Pac-10’s image of being “the league USC plays in.”

DJ AM: Another celebrity casualty we shouldn’t care about

The news has been slammed with former member of Crazy Town’s DJ AM and his death.  Many people have spoken out and said his or her kind words of remembrance, many of those who had nothing to do with the individual.

DJ AM, who’s real name is Adam Goldstein, died of possible drug use, joining Michael Jackson as another celebrity who’s use and abuse of a drug has lead to their demise.  But why all the sudden attention for the B-list celebrity?  I suppose it isn’t that unheard of for people to idolize and still look up to rock stars and other musicians as role models, even with the rampant use of drugs for recreational purposes.

Deathwing breathes life into Warcraft

The massively multi-player online gaming industry has seen a lot of press over the last decade, with the huge success of Everquest and then the release of Blizzard’s unstoppable force, World of Warcraft.  There are also stories of crazy things people have done, or have let happen, because of their involvement in these online games.  

People have paid more attention to the life of their online Avatar, and their second life, and forgetting simple things like eating, showering, going to work, or feeding the baby he or she left in the closet because its crying was distracting.  There are also the stories of people being killed or beaten over stealing or selling digital property in these games, and those who’ve committed suicide over things not working out in their digital world.

Hurricane season 2009 finally picks up

Hurricane season is both an exciting and stressful time to live in many of the states bordering the Gulf of Mexico and Atlantic Ocean.  

Hurricane preparedness kits are packed with batteries, flashlights, glow sticks and tons of bottled water, to name a few things.  

Plywood sales skyrocket whenever a storm appears to be ready to make landfall.  Evacuation routes are planned and some people go so far as to find places they wish to take up temporary residence in the event of mandatory evacuation.

Chevy’s Volt a much needed jolt

A few months ago, people cried over the treatment of ‘Government Motors’ and its bailouts and eventual bankruptcy filing, while conspiracy theorists predicted the company would be a government entity within the private business sector.  While many of those claims are still on their way to being proven false, the idea that GM would grow stale or would fail even with government intervention seem to be way off the mark.  GM has needed a change in its public image, that much anyone can agree on.  In many ways, GM needed not years of gradual improvement, but something so significant and earth shattering that it broke the hanging cloud of doubt over General Motors and its smaller companies and would renew interest in the struggling automaker.

UFC 101: Redemption means more for many

UFC 101: Redemption, as many UFC fights in the past, is one filled with a solid lineup and featuring several well known fighters responsible for putting mixed martial arts in the mainstream and for the success it has seen.  Even with those fights responsible for UFC’s growth and emergence into popular culture, as with every sport, the athletes do not last forever.  

Redemption is a display of some of those fighters who have been around, taken their beatings, rolled with the punches and kept on coming.  Eventually, the beatings do catch up with you and slow you down, and that is the underlying story behind the night. Are B.J. Penn and Forrest Griffin getting old?

Baby cut from womb found alive

Darlene Haynes was eight months pregnant and happily expecting the birth of her child.  She had gone through some domestic problems with the father of the child, and even filed a restraining order.  She was pushed into a glass table, grabbed her by the throat and slapped.  Things had quieted down after the restraining order was filed, and things appeared to be going well for her.

Until the events unfolded and she never saw the birth of her own child.

Swine flu vaccine

The swine flu has swept the world, caused quarantines of people in some countries, and generally been the most covered news story of the year outside of Michael Jackson’s death or Twilight romance gossip.  Fear has played a big role in the public’s interest in swine flu and its progression, and the media has played off of the fears very well to get more people to tune in.  An understanding of swine flu would go far to help the public base decisions and opinions on the disease on a more rational basis instead of having fear as a guide.

Vick’s reinstatement substantial

The NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell plays God regularly in the testosterone loaded league.  With players seeming to get into trouble with the law every day, he sure has had plenty of practice in dealing out punishment or giving merciful leniency toward those he believes have atoned for past sins.

Such is how it is in the NFL’s socialist setup, but the league works wonderfully in comparison to virtually every other sport’s structure, and largely upon Goodell’s decisions.

With that in mind, Roger Goodell has reinstated Michael Vick to play in the preseason this year, with a future decision to be made on his full reinstatement before game six of the regular season.  The provisional reinstatement for Vick allows him to participate in all practices and some preseason games, as well as all other team functions, but prevents him from playing in regular season games until he is fully reinstated or removed from the league.
