How Tennis' US Open Became "Open" In The First PlaceAug 20, 2014sbfriedman16
There's an interesting story to be told about the The US Open Tennis Championships, an annual sporting tournament that has its roots dating all the way back to 1881. And that story has to do with the tournament's history of inclusion, and it's ability to innovate the sport of tennis throughout the years. Today, this tournament is the last in succession of four major tennis tournaments that make up the Grand Slam, or Majors as they are called, for tennis. And the tournament as we know it now consists of five...
The U.S. needs sane actors in the Middle EastAug 19, 2014vincentlibertarian17
“Thus far, Mr. Obama’s military strategy in Iraq has greatly favored the Kurds over the Iraqi government, with all the airstrikes taking place in northern Iraq in general and in the Kurdish areas of Mount Sinjar, Erbil and Mosul in particular. One reason, defense officials said, is that military assessment teams sent to Iraq to gauge whether the Iraqi security forces are capable of countering ISIS sent back reports specifying which units could make the most of American help — in the form of airstrikes — and...
Texas Gov. Rick Perry Indicted by Grand Jury for Abuse of PowerAug 15, 2014sbfriedman463
Texas Governor Rick Perry plans to run for president in 2016. He even just started his very own super PAC to gather campaign financing, named RickPAC. And the long time governor plans to hit the campaign trail hard later this month, visiting all the key Republican states, including Iowa, New Hampshire and South Carolina, to name a few. But first, he needs to be arrested and taken to jail. And he will be, in about a week. That's right. Rick Perry will taken to jail and magistrated in front of a judge on...

Robin Williams Suicide Exposes America's Hidden Mental Health CrisisAug 12, 2014jaredsxtn1426
The tragic passing of Robin Williams brings to the forefront an issue that millions of Americans struggle with each and every day. Depression is an illness that does not discriminate. It affects celebrities and regular people alike. And sometimes it has deadly consequences, as we saw first hand yesterday. Robin Williams suicide came as a shock to the world, but his deep depression and substance abuse was something he talked about at length throughout his many years of battling the dual illnesses. He often...
Tony Stewart Strikes And Kills Fellow Driver On NASCAR Dirt TrackAug 10, 2014sbfriedman5993
During a late-night, 20-lap Sprint race at a dirt track in Canandaigua N.Y., 20-year-old driver Kevin Ward Jr was run over and lost his life. This happened after Ward slammed into a wall in his #13 car, got out of his vehicle, and was subsequently hit by fellow driver Tony Stewart. Ward had been clipped by fellow driver Tony Stewart during the race, and Ward was none to happy about the incident. Ward then got out of his car to let Tony know how angry he was about the clipping. As Ward walked onto the race-car...
Media War: Why Does the American Press Always Side With Israel?Aug 8, 2014jaredsxtn342
Thomas Jefferson once wrote in a letter to John Jay that "our liberty cannot be guarded but by the freedom of the press, nor that be limited without danger of losing it." Those words written over two hundred years ago by one of our nations foremost thinkers of the time could not ring more true today. The freedom of the press is one of our nations strongest ideals, but the recent corporatization of the press in this country stands to tear that ideal to shreds. Instead of reporting the news and providing indepth...
Hawaii Hurricanes Iselle and Julio: First Hand Account From A Big IslanderAug 7, 2014sbfriedman357
Since I am currently living on the Big Island of Hawaii, in Hilo about a mile from bay front, I thought I would put my time to use (while hunkered down) blogging about a first hand account with Hurricane's Iselle and Julio. I plan to do this blog like an updating journal entry. So if interested, keep checking back as I will update it a few times a day on through Monday, documenting both storms and their effects. To begin, here's the situation: It's been 22 years since a hurricane or tropical storm has hit...

04/16/14The Census is Being Manipulated to Skew Obamacare Numbers Obamacare (Affordable Care Act)0
President Obama's critics are claiming that the Census Bureau has changed its annual survey's questions to determine the amount of individuals who have health care coverage so the Obama Administration will be able to report that more American's have health coverage than actually do. The truth of the matter is that the new questions were developed during the Bush Administration, well before Obamacare became law, and are intended to provide a more accurate number of the amount of individuals who have health insurance coverage.
2013Small Businesses Dropping Majority of Employees Due to ACAObamacare (Affordable Care Act)0
Republicans are falsely claiming the Affordable Care Act has forced upwards of 75 percent of small business owners to fire employees or to cut their hours so they won't have to pay for health insurance coverage. In actuality, only 17 percent of businesses have notified their employees that there will be layoffs or their hours will be cut.
2013 DECMedicare application is used to create a gun registryMedicare, Gun Control & NRA0
The NRA and other pro gun advocates are falsely claiming that the application for Medicare asks individuals to disclose how many guns they own so they can make a gun registry. The fact of the matter is that there is no question on Medicare's application which asks about gun ownership and there never has been.
11/27/13President Obama Closed The Vatican Embassy Vatican City, Barack Obama, Republican Party & Italy0
Conservatives are claiming that President Obama has closed down the American embassy in the Vatican. In actuality, there are no embassies from any country within the Vatican, because the county is too small. The Obama Administration has decided to move out of our current embassy in Rome and relocate to the same compound as the American embassy to Italy. It will be located in a separate building within the compound and will have its own separate entrance.
11/19/13Obama Omitted "Under God" From Gettysburg Address RecitationBarack Obama0
Republicans are up in arms after President Obama didn't say "under God" while participating in a taping of the Gettysburg Address for filmmaker Ken Burns. In actuality, the original version of the Gettysburg Address did not contain those words and President Obama was reading from the copy that Mr. Burns provided for the President to read.
2013 NOVMedicaid Expansion Will Bankrupt StatesMedicaid & Obamacare (Affordable Care Act)0
Many Republican states have claimed they rejected Medicaid expansion because it would have bankrupted their state. In actuality, multiple independent economic experts insist that expanding Medicaid will be very favorable to the states because of the out sized role the Federal Government plays and also the savings that states will realize by not using other vital resources on their uninsured citizens.
2013 NOVMedicaid Doesn't Provide Quality Health CoverageMedicaid & Obamacare (Affordable Care Act)0
Many Republicans claim that Medicaid doesn't provide quality health coverage. The truth of the matter is that Medicaid has improved the lives and provided quality coverage to millions of citizens. States that have expanded Medicaid have documented lower costs because individuals that would have typically gone to the emergency room for routine care now go to their physician, which costs much less.
10/24/13Obamacare Website Costs Upwards of One Billion DollarsObamacare (Affordable Care Act)0
Conservatives are falsely claiming that the much maligned Obamacare website cost the Federal Government upwards of one billion dollars. They are pointing to numbers that show the company that was tasked with building the website, CGI Federal, has received over $600 million dollars from the Federal Government. What they are neglecting to mention is that this number is the total amount of dollars this company has received from the Federal Government with nearly all of it coming before the botched website. In actuality, the co...
