From the Editor's Desk...

Deja Vu Did anybody cry Deja Vu?
The year of the Superbowl of US Elections and THE Superbowl...

What are we to make of it all?

This week we find old "Georgie Boy..." mimicking his daddy.  Remember George H. Bush's famous expression "Read My Lips"?  Now comes George W. Bush with his Meaningless Handshake and public promise to McCain on National TV to "NOT Campaign Negatively"   So much for George W. Bush's being a "Man of His Word"! Ah, they say the apple never falls far from the tree.

Can George H. Bush be trusted?  Ask Manuel Noriega or Saddam Hussein or the Ambassador to Iraq at the time Iraq crossed the Iraqi/Kuwaiti border into Kuwait.  You'll soon see why... the Bush Brigade, (aka - Bushwackers) needs to get gone.  We need no other Bush forked tongue in the White House.  Daddy George's twelve year reign was enough of the CIA's man in the White House for this country. 

The Florida Debacle

Look at what's going on in Florida's State Capitol... John Ellis (JEB) Bush is very busy appointing his buddies to high places in Florida Government. "to the dickens with qualifications... I'll do it my way", ole "JEB" sez... I'm Governor now and its all bought and paid for!  Now this Boy Wonder is trying to have his newly appointed buddy the Chairmen of the Florida Board of Regents, Tom Petway, (well known Republican power broker, money man, manipulator etc.. ad nausea) from Jacksonville FL. take the first major step in eliminating "Affirmative Action" in the State of Florida. What are Tom Petway's qualifications besides his huge contributions to Bush's campaign and influence peddling, that warrant his appointment by Jeb Bush to the most powerful educator's position in the State? 

The voters of Florida are being cheated!  They voted for the Boy Wonder of Florida, "Jeb" Bush, expecting to be represented by him, offer their views and expectations.  Instead this "Governor" offers every indication that he holds the common working man voter in utter contempt.  The Boy Wonder has yet to come forward with anything... judicial appointments, conservation appointments, committee appointments or stances on major political issues affecting every taxpayer in the State of Florida in the order of support for the working man.  Instead he offers the impression he RESENTS the Voters instead of REPRESENTS them. Again, the apple never falls far from the tree.

Florida is under siege. Florida being Bushwhacked!  I might add its being done with total impunity and an obvious lack of conscience or morals. Please consider carefully the decision to put yet another "Boy Wonder" from the Bush Brigade in the White House. George W. Bush is BAD NEWS......

Can You imagine G.W. Bush and John McCain on the same GOP ticket? And Al Gore and Bradley on the same Demo Ticket.  Its a very distinct and real possibility.  ...something for you to think about.

Now, the Superbowl and Playoffs.....

Saturday, January 15;  the Jaguars and the Dolphins squared off and by the end of the day, Fish Chowder was served throughout the region.  While it was a real blowout it also was sad... it was, I imagine, like watching a favorite Gladiator in days of old getting his clock cleaned by a newcomer.  By that I mean watching Big Dan getting neutralized and Capers' defense strategy prevailing.

I'm keeping this short list here a a reminder if the worst happens... And that is if either of the two following incidents occur and prevail:

  • The NFL on-field Officials --They're as bad if not worse than last year! Who knows how many games throughout the play-offs will be decided by these goofs. The NFL needs to place FULL TIME, Professional Field Officials in place just like the Umpires in Baseball. Not part-time hobbyists.

  • The health of key players.... Injuries, Injuries and Injuries. and the officials; they really are bad. Instant replay has helped but the obvious is still.. oh, sooo obvious.

If only politics were that easy.  Be sure to carefully look over our political spotlight section.... Its got some "real neat" extras to offer this week. More on the Superbowl of Politics next week.

I could be wrong... I don't think so... If you think I am... by all means, let me hear from you. You can reach us via Email or our very own newsgroups.  Simply point your newsgroup reader to news.streport.com and you'll be there.
