Obama Kills College Sports

AS a Professor of Physics, and as one who played Football at a 1A College, I now think maybe it is time to remove all competitive athletics from Colleges. Let those interested in athletics build their own training facilities but not be permitted to interfere in any way with on-campus College Academics. Has I been able to gain an Academic Scholarship I would have been a much better student, I'm sure. But my Father was a carpenter and my Mother a waitress. Academic scholarships would provide me either tuition, or books, or sometimes both. None covered room and board and incidental costs such as shirts and pants. IMO, it's better for the country to train a brain than an athlete. Much better. The brain will be able to contribute to America. The ex-athlete is not likely to acquire enough knowledge in any academic field to get a job.
Back when I was in HS I read a book, fiction, about Russian & Chinese (Communist) actions aimed at destroying America from within. They finally came up with a solution that they predicted would work within 40 years. The process was very simple: Raise money to be used for policical purposes at any and all levels, from locval School Boards to State and Federal elections; and always support attorneys. Their political beliefs were not to be considered, just whether or not they had a law degree. Seems to be working pretty fast now.
Numbers??? About 6,000,000 people are supposed to sign up for Obamacare. Most of those (about 75%+) seem to be getting government subsidies (i.e. government welfare). The total population of the USA is about 320,000,000. That 6 million is less than 2% of the total population. So, the entire economy and political fabric of the US is being destroyed to meet the needs??? fewer than 2%... Numbers also show that the top 1% of taxpayers provide at least 40% to the total tax collected. Numbers show that about 85% those receiving government subsidies(welfare) vote for the Democrats. Lots more numbers out there, I betcha....

I'm afraid you are correct. A local school was in a lockdown with reports of an armed intruder. The police and SWAT, etc. all showed up and set up the perimeter, but didn't try to enter the school. The 'leader' said, openly, they they weren't going to enter until they 'knew exactly what was going on'. Even when a report of 'shots fired' came out, they wouldn't move. A parent called them cowards and said he was going in anyway to try to protect his daughter. The police gave orders to shoot him if he tried to enter the building! Luckily no one was injured, especially the police/SWAT teams. I guess they just wait until the armed intruder runs out of bullets.

Don't know, but at the time they were breaking laws. I would hope that a very large number of current prisoners are released very quickly, though, if they were arrested as 'users'.

The main point about this information is that the Law Enforcement will do whatever their 'leaders' tell them to do; and then declare that they did nothing wrong because they were 'just following orders'. You know, like the Nazi law enforcement ones who turned on the gas, or mowed down with machine guns, or a single shot in the head from a pistol. Today you can expect that the Law Enforcement types will be 'serving and protecting ' the political royalty' who can, do, and will declare any American a danger to them; eligible for extermination at any time. Just try to get ready, as innocent Americans, for further loss of rights.
Obama-loving police have re-defined a lot of terms; like black on white attacks aren't crimes... and it's a 'gun related crime' if a gun can be located anywhere near a crime committed by a white; but it's not a crime by a black to shoot any white although some liberals get upset when the victim is a lib... Just redefine terms: beats doing anything to 'preserve and protect' innocent citizens.
Lot's fewer murders by guns under Obama's Benevolent Rule. Of course you have to know that the new 'liberal definition' of murder is changed regularly to uphold Obama's need for positive outcomes. If someone has a heart attack on the sidewalk and there is a gun within 100 meters, that's death by gun if they want to increase the 'scare factor'. But if someone is shot in the heart, that's a heart attack that proves that strict gun laws are working.
Stupid question, I guess. But why in hell are illegals getting ANY public assistance that I have to pay for? Jus' askin'.
Ummmm...well, I DO want health care that I can afford, and that does what I pay it to do. But.... I've got that! Sure, I did some shopping around, but isn't that what COMPETITION is for? With the government in control, I have NO choices. I take the plan that the government says is best for me; I pay what the government says I must pay. Or else I get fined and maybe arrested. In addition, the government gets to charge me more if I make more money so my extra money can be used to pay for someone else's 'affordable health care'!!!! Isn't that process somewhat similar to the Russian Communist Manifesto of "From each according to his 'wealth' and to each according to his need(and willingness to support the government)"??? Just asking.
