"Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn't pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children's children what it was once like in the United States where men were free....... ~Ronald Reagan~

Right Before They Drink The Grape Kool-Aid!
After years of resistance, if not outright disdain, a growing number of small U.S. brewers are braving beer snobs' barbs and putting their beer in aluminum. We certainly are in favor of marketing and small business growth, but canning these hand-crafted beauties? Grrrrr. The can is becoming popular with microbrews, actually increasing sales in leaps and bounds. xxx According to the Wall Street Journal in their own "unscientific" test, of the 16 beers tasted from cans, in average scores, rated four of the five top spots Could it be a canned beer apocalypse. We fear many of these beer drinkers simply have their taste all in their mouth. Or........Not! Patriot and Brewer Samuel Adams is rolling over in his grave.

A new study by Harvard University and the National Institute of Mental Health claims that 46 percent of all Americans will, at some point in their lives, develop a mental disorder. Hmmm...Looking at the last Presidential election we'd say the results are already in and closer to 48%.
ESPN, forever in love with only Tiger, lead off it's pathetic "Sports Center" showing Tiger chipping in from the rough. This happened yesterday! Today, Phil Mickleson won the PGA Tournment. Where the hell was this in the lead film clip and story???
With so many other fine golfers and a three-way tie for first, with two holes to be played, these idiots are continuously promoting Woods. Who in the hell cares about Wood's already? CBS and the whole sports world constantly show total disrespect for the other professional golfers. I wrote about this below and the Woods B.S. continues. This is disrespectful to the sport of golf and demeaning of the golfers still playing today. It's not the Woods Championship. In fact, he has been eliminated. Say good-bye Tiger! Nah, Hah...Hey, Hey...Good-Bye!

New Jersey's black bear population has rocketed to some 3,400, and bears have been spotted in every one of the state's 21 counties. In the first half of this year alone, the state logged 677 damage and nuisance complaints, up from 424 in the same period last year. Bears have attacked dogs, swatted toddlers, and broken into houses. The state's Fish & Game Council voted unanimously to hold a bear hunt in December, noting that hunts are the most effective way to control population. At least 27 bear-populated states currently permit hunting, and New Jersey itself had a successful hunt in 2003. Standing in the way of the hunt is state environmental commissioner Bradley Campbell, who seems more interested in pleasing animal rights groups than in the well-being of his state's citizens. After the Fish & Game Council approved a hunt last year, Mr. Campbell stepped in to block it, arguing instead for an expensive contraception program and a "public awareness" campaign. The Wall Street Journal suggests Campbell will consider passing out bear condoms, too.
I am sooooooooooo sick of the press, and I mean everyone in the press, displaying their kool-aid drinking attitude towards Tiger Woods. I grew up when golf was not as popular, when I was one of very few kids on the golf course with senior citizens. My game started at age six with some old Bobby Jones wood shaft clubs and a dirty bag. No lessons, just pay your tiny fee and play. My parents always new where I was, either playing sandlot baseball or golf. I was obsessed and went on to play in high school and in the Big-Ten. The hope for me was to qualify for the PGA but I got drafted and the dream ended. However, my respect for the game of golf, the legends, the ghost of Bobby Jones and the immense difficulty of the sport never waned. As the game became increasingly popular I stayed away from the course with an occasional trip to the driving range. There are too many amateurs and wanna-be's who don't know the rules or etiquette so important to golf. The game slowed down and became a chore. Now watching golf has become a chore. Actually the headlines and TV commercials have become advertisement for what is presumed a "one-man show." Tiger this, Tiger that. Today Tiger Woods is 8 strokes off the lead held by Phil Mickleson. What is the Associated Press headline? Tiger back to par! PAR???? Eight strokes behind in one of the "Big 4" Tournaments and Woods get the headline? Incredible and pathetic. There are approximately 150 professional golfers in tournaments who practice hours upon hours. Commercials for tournaments usually say something about the defending champion. Or should I say, use too! Now it's all about Tiger! No respect for previous champions, no respect for current leaders. It's all about Tiger! Everyone loves a hero, the champion. Tiger Woods has had an illustrious career although in the beginning his father had to be shown the rule book on who belongs in the club house or on the green. Daddy thought he was the part of the show, part of his son's celebrity. And Tiger... pumping fist....immense arrogance...a real son of a bitch frankly. No Class, no respect for the game, no respect for other golfers. It's all about me...Tiger Woods. The press continues to shine the light upon Tiger even though his game has lost much of it's luster. They don't shine the light on the Tiger swearing and slamming his clubs. They don't write about the Tiger who receives penalties at a record pace for displays of temper and unsportsmanlike conduct. When another golfer, yes one of 150+ competing, is the champion of a tournament, the television stations end Sunday with clips of Tiger even though there is another winner. It's all about Tiger. I have been a Chicago Cub fan all my life. (Grrrr). We like to say, "I root for the Cubs and whoever is playing the White Sox. In golf I root for whomever is playing in the tournament, excluding Tiger Woods. For me it's not all about Tiger, it's all about the most difficult sport in the world. Yes, the sport and all the competitors who work endlessly with hopes of finishing in the money and maybe winning a "Big 4" championship. I tip my hat to all the golfers of the Professional Golfer's Association. This PGA Tournament is all about YOU!
