I played high school football and tonight feels like Thursday night before an important Friday game, not the big game, but an important one we need to win. Team taxpayer is favored to win two important contests tomorrow, the Wisconsin governor’s recall and Proposition B in San Diego.
The U-T is reporting that Proponents of Proposition B have spent $1.8 million on the measure against $227K by those opposed. That doesn’t prove it will win, but it makes me smile nonetheless. A bit of Schadenfreude came from this quote in the Voice of San Diego.
“From a political standpoint, it’s pretty likely that this is going to pass in June,” labor leader Michael Zucchet said in April. “And when I say pretty likely, I mean we’re [expletive].”
Thanks to Philip Rivers, his wife, Tiffany, and local attorney Charles LiMandri who spearheaded a $5.2 million capital campaign to purchase the radio station KCEO 1000 AM, San Diego now has a 24 hour Catholic talk radio station. In turn, thanks to KCEO, I learned last week about San Diego’s Rally for Religious Freedom, tomorrow, Friday, March 23, noon at the San Diego County Administration Building.
Feb. 4, 2011 – SAN DIEGO, Calif. — Happy Dutch Day? Nope, most Americans say they’d rather work.
More than 60 percent of Americans reject the idea of denoting 40th President Ronald Reagan’s birthday, February 6, as a federal public holiday.
The survey of 504 American adults was conducted between February 1-3, 2011 by Competitive Edge Research & Communication.

Just days before the centennial of his birth, the survey shows support for the holiday somewhat split along party lines between Democrats and Republicans, with independents siding with Democrats in opposition.
The GOP doesn’t get the media and really, the feeling seems mutual. So listen up, there’s an elephant in the room and he doesn’t know how to look good on TV.
During the State of the Union Address last night, I watched the speeches as if I were critiquing and assessing candidates of my own. Overall, the Democrats and Republicans are not just divided by political differences, but also in appearances.
Regardless of whether the Conservative powers that be in D.C. care to admit it – appearances matter.

Not that I wouldn’t get the biggest kick out of seeing some flashy pant suits – which she Hillary-iously referred to as a the “Sisterhood of the Traveling Pantsuits” (haha, oh my sides).
I personally just can’t see her going through it all over again.
Her husband, former President Bill Clinton faced off with Meet the Press host David Gregory recently looking thin enough for viewers to ask if he was in good health. Geez, guess I gotta get rid of that image of him feigning his Presidential jogs (into McDonald’s). And she’s, well, looking a bit exhausted these days.

Supervisor Pam Slater-Price: “Our economy is flat and we are still involved in a war on two fronts. Yet while on the campaign trail the President promised to resolve both issues.
“Many citizens voted for President Obama because he promised to get us out of Iraq. McCain, on the other hand, was honest and said there needed to be a legitimate time table for withdrawal. I wonder now if these voters feel betrayed?
According a new SurveyUSA poll, San Diegans did not warmly welcome the news last Friday that President Obama received the Nobel Peace Prize. Fielding responses from 500 adults in San Diego County, SurveyUSA found that 52% of area residents did not agree with the decision to award Obama the Prize. Those opposed include 72% of registered Republican voters, 22% of registered Democratic voters, and 67% of Decline to States. Only 39% agreed with the decision.
