Things that make me wonder:
Why the NFL is tax exempt as a non-profit trade organization when Park Ave. pulls in 200 million per year.
Americans subsidize the NFL which is worth %9 billion.
USA Today Sports had this:
"There’s a few things going against any actual movement to take away the NFL’s non-profit status, said Professor Matthew Dallek, an associate professor of political management at George Washington University. “I think it’s very hard in this [political] environment to get anything of substance passed,” he pointed out. It’s also the middle of campaign season meaning that politicians are unlikely to do anything to upset their base — and despite recent struggles the NFL still remains incredibly popular.
And they’ve spent a lot of money to be popular in Congress. According to OpenSecrets.org, a blog that tracks political spending, the NFL has donated millions in campaign contributions to political leaders in the past few years and spent more than $1.6 million in lobbying Congress in the past 18 months."
It should be illegal.
The only people who should address or influence Congress are the people who put them in office.
The purpose of Congress is to vote according to the will of the American people, not foreign nations or interests.
There should be an end to all manner of lobbying.
That would solve your problem Mr. O.
Seems pretty clear cut to me.
Yet, it has been downplayed and not much world outcry is made.
I wonder, why is that? No one cares, that's why.
Yet, how many millions of women have been murdered and abused by all religions and no one cares much about that either.
Man's duty to earth:
Fill it.. subdue it... have dominion over it...tend and keep it.
Nothing there about serving the earth or worshiping it like some kind of mother goddess.
On that note, in the category of very creepy news:
The United Nations Environmental Project ,Only One Earth, which is in reality a mother earth worship project, sends out plans for worship services to churches and synagogues that include prayers for mother earth and ideas for their 'covenant' with the earth and institution of an earth sabbath.
Earth is described as a 'living mother' deserving of reverence and prayers.
Their agenda suggests prayers, songs and earth pictures along with sermons based on the earth.
They want "other species, that is plants and animals" invited to 'speak' at services.
25,000 groups have joined so far.

A quote from John Quincy Adams which America should remember and heed:
"America does not go abroad in search of monsters to destroy...The fundamental maxims of her policy would insensibly change from liberty to force. She might become the dictatress of the world: she would be no longer the ruler of her own spirit." - John Quincy Adams, July 4th, 1821

Perhaps Barack Obama did not go to Paris because he saw through the hypocrisy?
But, as some world leaders and thousands of French march in support of freedom of speech, they neglect to tell you that questioning certain things in France will earn you serious prison time.
Your freedom of speech just depends on who and what you mock or criticize.
Francois Hollande banned opposition leader Marine La Pen from the Paris demonstration because they don't like what she stands for.
So much for freedom there. Silence the opposition.
And speaking of hypocrisy, the Maurice Sinet trial is a good example. Follow the link to read about the case and note the magazine that Maurice Sinet worked for.
"Maurice Sinet, 80, who works under the pen name Sine, faces charges of "inciting racial hatred" for a column he wrote last July in the satirical weekly Charlie Hebdo. The piece sparked a summer slanging match among the Parisian intelligentsia and ended in his dismissal from the magazine."L'affaire Sine" followed the engagement of Mr Sarkozy, 22, to Jessica Sebaoun-Darty, the Jewish heiress of an electronic goods chain. Commenting on an unfounded rumour that the president's son planned to convert to Judaism, Sine quipped: "He'll go a long way in life, that little lad."A high-profile political commentator slammed the column as linking prejudice about Jews and social success. Charlie Hebdo's editor, Philippe Val, asked Sinet to apologise...."
And just in case you are wondering (re: the cop shot by the Hebdo suspects) here is what being shot in the head really looks like:
