IT'S A MARKETING OPPORTUNITY
I don't care what Washington calls the team, but Dan Snyder is a smart businessman. The jury is out on his ability to run an NFL franchise, but he's not a billionaire by luck.
Changing the name would be a financial windfall and here's how Snyder could do it. Change the name but keep the team colors. Have the team play half of its home and away games with the new uniform and half with the current uniform. He could call them 'classics' or 'throwbacks.' All of the loyal 'Redskins' fans would go right out and buy the new jerseys, caps, coffee mugs, jackets, etc. etc. etc. That's the main reason NFL teams change their uniforms from time to time and also why they play some of their games with 'throwbacks.'
NFL owners don't care about political correctness, they are only interested in pleasing their fans. They don't want to alienate customers, and if they can do that and make millions through NFL properties, well, all the better.
Why isn't Tennessee the Titans and not the Hillbillies or Yahoos or Rednecks?
A ROSE BY ANY OTHER NAME...
HILLBILLIES AND YAHOOS, HILLBILLIES AND YAHOOS, HILLBILLIES AND YAHOOS, HILLBILLIES AND YAHOOS, HILLBILLIES AND YAHOOS, HILLBILLIES AND YAHOOS, HILLBILLIES AND YAHOOS, HILLBILLIES AND YAHOOS, HILLBILLIES AND YAHOOS,
If the word 'Redskin' is okay, go up to a Native American and call him that.
Canuck of the north, what are you saying? That without EU sanctions and the tactic support of the White House, Viktor Yanukovych would still be running the show?
His days were numbered when the people decided that it was better to die for freedom than it was to live without. I'm not disputing your economic analysis; I just don't think the EU or the US had much influence one way or the other.
You can't beat a crowd that is willing to get shot to be heard.
This guy is mailing it in. Not another pro-democracy cartoon illustrating how the freedom loving Ukrainian people, seeking closer ties with the West, overthrew a murderous dictator with close ties with Moscow.
REPUBLICANS APPROVED TAX HIKES?
JT, even if republicans would ever approve raising revenue, do you think they would both raise taxes AND hand Obama a political win on the Debt Ceiling? YOU SERIOUSLY BELIEVE THAT??
The 'Plan B' prevarication was cooked up by the GOP PR machine in an attempt to make the party not look so stupid. I see a few of you bought it!
Then again, you're the same crowd that believe you can balance the federal budget by cutting taxes and raising defense spending!
Congressional Republicans opposed Obama from day 1 and pledged to never compromise or cooperate under any circumstances. And Obama, bless his heart, has naively continued to seek their approval and support. When hurricane Sandy hit Obama couldn't wait to go visit republican governor Christy and pledge billions of dollars in aid.
Before Sandy hit Chris Christy was the GOP darling, but after he welcomed the President to New Jersey the republican party shunned him. As soon as Christy was photographed joking around and being best buds with Obama even Ann Coulter turned her back.
The two month delay in approving Hurricane Sandy relief aid was another way republican told Christy, you're dead to us.
When asked how he planned to win back republican support as he pursued his party's nomination for president in 2016, Christy replied, "I'll close that bridge when I get to it."
THE COMEDY STYLINGS OF ZABLEDOOFIS
I've followed many posters of the years, conservative leaning and liberal leaning, and this guy never, ever, has any insight. It's pure propaganda, and projection.
But Zab IS funny! Unintentionally perhaps, but LOL.
WHERE THERE' SMOKE
I don't know what the smoke represents. The GOP fireman in the lawn chair is John Boehner, sulking because he's unable to unite the fractious House republicans so he's getting drunk.
Why can't republicans take yes for an answer? When Obama and Boehner sat down to work out the 'grand bargain,' Obama offered up cuts to MediCare, MediCaid, and Social Security including the COLA. Democrats went nuts, but Obama wanted to trade all that for a 3% tax increase on people making over $1 million.
Other House leaders were unwilling to give Obama a legislative win so they shot it down. Too bad, too, because they'll never get another shot at cuts to those programs.
Another example of blind GOP hatred trumping legislative ambitions.
WRONG ARGUMENT, BOYS
I don't hate southerns and I didn't insult the entire south.
I'm amazed how some of you guys fight so hard to keep low paying jobs without a future.
I pointed out that southern states are at the rock bottom with median household incomes and you couldn't respond to THAT so you cracked wise about my dead mom and suggest I'm gay... I guess. (Not sure what you were suggesting)
The south is great. I either owned or co-owned several businesses over the years which is how I retired early.
I'm also amazed how some of you guys see people earning more money as the enemy.
THERE'S REAL GLASS IN THEM THAR WINDERS
Yeah Rick, the cost of living is higher up north.
They got indoor plumbing, too.
120 FEET OF WATERFRONT PROPERTY
Sorry, Joe. We live in a deed restricted neighborhood. No trailers.
On some nights, though, the frogs sound like the Hallelujah Chorus!
