College Basketball — Referees and Big Men

with 2 comments

Most big men in college basketball are not very good.  If they were not tall, most of them would not be playing; few can shoot well except under the basket, almost none can dribble and most cannot pass.

What these big men can do is push, shove, trample, travel and violate the 5 second rule.  Teams built around these clumps of flesh are not really good except for the cheating advantage of their big men.

Few referees call these violations on them.  Most big men should foul out while playing less than 10 minutes a game.

Fans/viewers and advertisers would go mad if oak tree was called for 3 fouls in the first minute, went to the bench until the second half and then filed out within the first few minutes of the second half.

Wake up people, college basketball is no longer a sport; it is a selling machine to take money out of YOUR pocket.

If you really want to watch basketball, go to community and junior college games.  You can see some good basketball for free or a few dollars without the ugliness of college basketball.

College Basketball Referees — Incompetent or Biased

leave a comment »

The referee system in college basketball NEEDS to be revamped.

The referees are not making the right calls.  It is so bad that the refereeing is effecting the outcome of games.Teams that deserve to win are being cheated; the referees are giving the game to the other team.

This is done in two ways:  not calling fouls and violations on one team(fouls and violations that should be called) and making incorrect calls against the other team.

The referees are favoring home teams(and not just a little), higher ranked teams/better record teams, or just favoring any team playing against certain teams.

It is like the games are pre-determined and the referees do whatever is necessary.

Maybe it is the television money.  If a top-ranked or favorite team loses to a nobody team, maybe advertising dollars fall off.

Whatever the reason, time for it to stop.

Since it will not be stopped, it is time for viewers to treat college basketball just like wrestling; all fake and not worth watching.

For advertisers, stop advertising on college basketball because no one watches the commercials anyway.

Age Of Turmoil

leave a comment »

We have entered what we call the Age of Turmoil, a time that is marked by rapid change and fluctuating crises.

What’s happening right now is a major sea change: the game is being reset, and the rules are being rewritten.

Will Your Life Be Turned Upside Down?
Conversely, those who cling to their faith in the old system, desperately hoping for a return to the carefree days of the past, will have their lives turned upside down.

This is because all the major elements of the old system– our political process, our money and financial institutions, the job market, police forces, etc.– only function as long as the system is operating normally.

The old ways are NEVER going to return.  ACCEPT IT.

Everybody is clinging to the world as it WAS.  This is causing things to go downhill instead  of  improving.

Our blogs know about the new world.  Following them will improve your life and the world around you.

Found on the Internet

First, a lamentation: the trouble with public life in this great empire is that people don’t have the proper disrespect for it. They read the news and take it seriously. They listen to politicians and forget to laugh. They put books by economists in the non-fiction section. They buy magazines about celebrities. They want to discuss “public policy” with their friends. Rare is the citizen who tries to figure out what the trade deficit is all about, and that poor soul has our sympathy.

END

So sad, but so true.

The average person has so little understanding of how the world really works.  And these fools yell the loudest in expressing their opinions.  In addition, they want everything for themselves while doing nothing to earn anything.

This is a very good argument for limits on democracy.

More than 50 Shocking Questions That You Should Ask To Anyone That Is Not
A Prepper Yet

Share this list of shocking questions with everyone you know that
needs to wake up.

Sometimes asking good questions is the best way to get someone that
you care about to understand something. When I attended law school, I
became very familiar with something called “the Socratic method”. It
is a method that has been traditionally used in law schools all over
the United States. Law professors will bombard their students with
questions, and the goal is to stimulate critical thinking and allow
students to discover the answers for themselves. Many times those
of us that can see what is happening to this country get frustrated
when we try to get others to see what is so apparent to us. But
instead of preaching to them, perhaps asking questions would be more
helpful. When you ask someone a question, they are almost forced
to think about what you just said and come up with a response. And
without a doubt, the fact that America is in decline is undeniable.

Those that would choose to blindly have faith in the system
are foolish, because it is glaringly obvious that the system is
failing. Our economy is heading for collapse and the world around
us is becoming more unstable with each passing day. So it shouldn’t
be a surprise that the number of preppers in the United States is
absolutely exploding. Some estimates put the number of preppers in
the U.S. as high as 3 million, and the movement continues to explode.

So exactly what is a “prepper”? Well, the truth is that there is
a tremendous amount of diversity among the people that fall under
that label.

To me, you don’t have to move to Montana and store 500 cases of
MREs in a nuclear fallout shelter to be considered a prepper. I
believe that anyone that can see a very serious crisis coming and
that is taking steps to prepare for that crisis would be considered
a prepper. You might be living next to one and never even know
it. Many families have converted spare rooms into food pantries or
are taking survival training on the weekends.  Others have renewed
their interest in gardening or have started to invest in precious
metals. As far as I am concerned, anything that you can do to become
more self-sufficient and more independent of the system is a good
thing, because the system is rapidly failing.

Perhaps you are reading this and you are thinking that people
who are “preparing for disaster” are being rather foolish. Well,
I encourage you to read the list of questions that I have compiled
below and come to your own conclusions.

The following are 50 shocking questions that you should ask to
anyone that is not a prepper yet…

#1 Why are sales of physical silver coins breaking all sorts
of all-time records? The U.S. Mint is on pace to sell more silver
eagles during the first month of 2013 than it did during the entire
year of 2007.

#2 Why has Germany announced that it will be moving gold from New
York and Paris to its own vaults back home? Is this a sign of a
breakdown in trust among global central banks?

hoarding massive amounts of gold?

“currency war”?

attack on the Second Amendment?

all of a sudden?

#10 Why has a bill been introduced in the U.S. House of
Representatives that “would ban Internet or mail order ammunition
purchases”?

#11 Why are gun control advocates such as Piers Morgan pushing for
us to become more like the UK when the UK actually has a much higher
violent crime rate than we do?

#12 Why was a Forbes article that made a connection between the
use of psychiatric drugs and the mass shootings that we have seen
in recent years almost immediately taken down from the Internet?

#13 Why does the federal government want to start putting “black
boxes” in all new motor vehicles?

#14 Why are some U.S. states now using computers to predict
“future crimes”?

#15 Why are “black-clad federal SWAT teams” raiding farms and
ranches all over the United States?

#16 Why are we all being trained to spy on one another?

#17 Why are highly advanced facial recognition cameras being put
up all over the United States?

#18 Why have police departments all over America begun to deploy
unmanned surveillance drones in the skies over our cities?

#19 Why are schools all over America beginning to require students
to carry IDs with RFID microchips in them wherever they go?

#20 Why are more Americans not outraged that nearly 400 TSA
employees have been fired for stealing from travelers since 2003?

#21 Why are Americans not more outraged that TSA goons are
manhandling the private areas of our women and our children in the
name of “national security”?

#22 Why is an elderly survivor of the Nazi occupation of Austria,
Kitty Werthmann, warning that America is heading down the exact
same path that she experienced?

#23 If the economy is in good shape, then why are more than one
out of every four U.S. workers with a 401(k) raiding those funds
in order to pay current expenses?

#24 Why does the Federal Reserve continue to insist that the economy
is “improving” when it obviously is not?

#25 Why can so few Americans explain how money is created in the
United States?

#26 Why has the U.S. dollar declined in value by well over 95
percent since the Federal Reserve was created?

#27 Why is the U.S. national debt more than 5000 times larger than
it was when the Federal Reserve was created?

#28 Why isn’t the mainstream media in the U.S. discussing the
fact that the U.S. dollar is in danger of losing its status as the
primary reserve currency of the world?

#29 Why don’t more Americans know about the quadrillion dollar
derivatives bubble?

#30 Why did the U.S. national debt grow during the first four years
of the Obama administration by about as much as it did from the
time that George Washington took office to the time that George
W. Bush took office?

#31 Why is the middle class in America bringing home a smaller
share of the overall income pie than has ever been recorded before?

#32 If the U.S. economy is producing a healthy number of good jobs,
then why are we spending nearly a trillion dollars a year on welfare?

#33 If the U.S. economy is not collapsing, then why has the number
of Americans on food stamps grown from 17 million in the year 2000
to more than 47 million today?

#34 If America is still an economic powerhouse, then why have we
lost more than 56,000 manufacturing facilities since 2001?

#35 Why are we losing half a million jobs to China every single year?

#36 Why were one out of every ten homes sold in the state of
California last year purchased by Chinese citizens?

#37 Why has the percentage of men with jobs in the United States
fallen so dramatically? Back in 1950, more than 80 percent of all
men in the United States had jobs. Today, less than 65 percent of
all men in the United States have jobs.

#38 Why are so many Americans poor today? According to the
U.S. Census Bureau, more than 146 million Americans are either
“poor” or “low income”. Why is this happening?

#39 Why does the U.S. government have a website that teaches
immigrants how to sign up for welfare programs once they arrive in
the United States?

#40 Why has the number of gang members living in the United States
risen by an astounding 40 percent just since 2009?

#41 Why does approximately one out of every three children in the
United States live in a home without a father? Can such a society
prosper in the long run?

#42 Why are our supermarkets being flooded with genetically-modified
foods when a whole host of studies have shown that they are
potentially dangerous to human health?

#43 If the economy has “improved” during the Obama years, then
why are hunger and poverty still absolutely skyrocketing in the
United States?

#44 Why are more than a million public school students in the United
States homeless?

#45 Why are more than 50 percent of all children in Detroit living
in poverty? Detroit used to be one of the greatest cities in the
entire world. How did such prosperity turn into such desolation?

#46 Why did a violent riot break out at an event where
government-subsidized section 8 housing vouchers were being handed
out in a suburb of Detroit earlier in January 2013? Is this the
kind of unrest that we can expect to see all over the country when
things get really bad?

#47 Why are cities all over the United States making it illegal to
feed the homeless?

#48 Why is the UN trying to take control of the Internet?

#49 Why have global food supplies sunk to their lowest level in
nearly 40 years?

#50 Why is global power concentrated in so few
hands? According to the Swiss Federal Institute, a network of 147
mega-corporations control 40 percent of all the wealth in the world,
and in a previous article I described how just six obscenely powerful
corporations completely dominate the media industry in the United
States. Is it good for such incredible power to be concentrated in
the hands of so few people?

Please share this article with as many people as you can. It only
takes a few moments to share an article, but the person on the
other end that reads it might have their life changed forever.
