GOP Could Win 100 House Seats On Election Day

Something of a historic nature is happening in the United States this November, if you believe the dozens of polls that have been taken in the past few weeks. While President Obama and democratic leaders in Congress have been trying to put the best face possible on what will most certainly happen to them during national elections on Tuesday, they know that the US House of Representatives is totally lost this year and most likely they will lose their majority in the US Senate too.

What no one is talking about right now, is the margin of victory the GOP is likely to accomplish on Tuesday - because it seems totally impossible to political insiders. As there are only two days left before nationwide voting begins on November 2nd, the common knowledge among pollsters is that rather than a 50 or 60 seat pickup for the GOP happening on Tuesday - instead the Republican margin of victory in the US House of Representatives will be 100 seats or more when all the ballots are counted.

If that happens, it will be the first time in several generations that one political party will so badly defeat another in a midterm election. In less than two years, the American public has not only turned it's back on the ideas and policies of President Barack Obama - but they are also more motivated than at any time in my life to get to the polls on Tuesday and cast their no vote against his agenda for the country. It's going to be a huge night for the GOP on Tuesday as ballots are counted all across the country.

Dallas Cowboys Owner Jerry Jones Should Fire Himself

Most die-hard Dallas Cowboys fans have been saying for a long time now that the biggest problem with the team is owner Jerry Jones. Unlike every other player and coach on the team - Jerry Jones cannot be fired, unless he fires himself by selling the team to another owner or group of owners. There are many different kinds of denial in the world of sports, but the ego and the extreme self worth issues of Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones stand in a world of their own. Going back all the way to when Jerry Jones bought the Dallas Cowboys are brought in winning coach Jimmy Johnson to coach them - everyone has known the dirty little secret that Jerry Jones' ego will not allow him to hire a coach who is allowed to think for himself and lead "America's Team" back to the Superbowl.

In a terrible twist of fate, Jerry Jones is now facing his own worst enemy, which is himself. In 2010 - the Dallas Cowboys were ready and eager to take advantage of this season by finding themselves as the first "home team" in Superbowl history. However - even at this early stage of the 2010 NFL season, hopes of a Superbowl appearance by the Dallas Cowboys have completely faded from the minds of fans and those high hopes has been replaced by an anger at the players, coaches and especially owner Jerry Jones. While owning an NFL football team is a business proposition, owner of the Dallas Cowboys Jerry Jones would be well advised to use less good business sense and more common sense when it comes to managing his pride and joy team the Dallas Cowboys.

I wish there was some way that Dallas Cowboys fans could fire Jerry Jones, but that kind of thinking will never turn into reality. The only hope that Dallas Cowboys fans have is for Jerry Jones to eventually come to his senses and admit that it is he and not everyone else who is responsible for the problems that currently face the Dallas Cowboys. I personally have little to no hope that Jerry Jones with wake up any time soon and start blaming himself for the problems with the NFL team he owns. However, Dallas Cowboys fans are learning the hard way what eventually happens to an NFL team - when the owner of that team believes that he knows more about calling plays and managing the team than his own head coach.

Texas Rangers Win First Home World Series Game

Finally, the Texas Rangers won a game in the 2010 World Series with a victory over the San Francisco Giants last night in Arlington, Texas. It was not an easy game by any ones description, but in sports a win is always better than a loss. Now, the Texas Rangers have a chance to come from behind and defeat the Giants in World Series 2010. That road will not be an easy one for the Rangers, but I still have faith in this team that no one thought would even be in this years playoffs - much less the World Series.

In attendance at last nights game, was former President George W. Bush and his wife Laura. Before George W. Bush was the Governor of Texas and then later elected the President of the United States, he was the managing partner of the Texas Rangers organization. Last nights victory by the Texas Rangers over the San Francisco Giants brought out a ton of emotion not only from the fans at the game, but from President Bush as well. It has been a long dry spell for the Texas Rangers, who are usually counted out of playoff contention even before the first pitch of the season is thrown.

The citizens of Texas have finally caught MLB fever and 2010 will be our best chance to win against the best of the best in the baseball world. Right now, the odds have to be against the Texas Rangers after the Giants totally dominated them in the Bay area during their first two games. However, another old Texas sayings goes like this: "it's not over until it's over" and that is why I continue to believe in the Texas Rangers and why I still believe they have an excellent chance to come from behind and be crowned the 2010 World Series champions.

Casey Anthony's Attorneys Flee Her Defense Team

Another high profile lawyer representing child murder defendant Casey Anthony has decided to leave the team of lawyers who once represented her. Linda Kenney Baden said recently, that she could no longer represent Casey Anthony because the State of Florida would not pay her travel expenses back and forth from New York to Florida.

If you look back on all the attorneys who once wanted to sign up to represent Casey Anthony for free and compare it to a list of lawyers who are still willing to do so - the current list of attorneys would be very small indeed. It's no secret that lawyers are willing to travel great distances to further their career, but it's becoming increasingly clear that most of them don't want to do it on their own dime.

Maybe I'm just a country boy, but since when do attorneys need to travel from New York and California to represent a defendant like Casey Anthony in the State of Florida? I doubt if any of these attorneys think that Casey Anthony is actually innocent, but instead their hope was to work on her case for free - while the State of Florida paid their living and travel expenses. Then at the end of the trial, their value as lawyer would shoot up - no matter what a jury decided in the Casey Anthony murder trial.

For Casey Anthony and the two most permeate members of her defense team (Jose Baez & Cheney Mason) to believe that there are no good Florida attorneys who can represent her in a murder trial is an insult to thousands of good lawyers who call Florida and the Orlando area home. I say enough with the games and the building of legal careers on the back of Florida taxpayers. Let's get on with this trial and let the chips fall where they may.

Dallas Cowboys Hopes Fade As Romo Is Out For The Season

In addition to the terrible on field play by the Dallas Cowboys on Monday night, during that game against the New York Giants - Cowboys starting quarterback Tony Romo was injured and for all practical purposes knock out for the entire 2010 season.

As the 2010/2011 Dallas Cowboys season began, all fans had high hope for a Superbowl birth for "the boys" at the new Dallas Cowboys stadium in Arlington, Texas. However, as the first few games were played and with each passing week the Cowboys playing worse than the week before - fans hopes of a miracle season that ended with a Superbowl championship faded away.

In my view, the biggest problem with the Dallas Cowboys can be found in the largest corner office at Valley Ranch. As all fans learned when Jimmy Johnson was fired, not only does Jerry Jones have a thin skin - but he will never hire the type of coach the Dallas Cowboys need to win Superbowl's once again.

A coworker told me the other day - that she was going to write a letter to Bill Gates and ask him to please buy the Dallas Cowboys and make the first order of his business to find the best coach in the NFL and let him work his magic with the team.

Texas Rangers Light Up Dallas/Fort Worth

On Friday night in football dominated Texas, it was not local high school football games that dominated the minds of sports fans - but instead a DFW major league baseball team that caught everyone's attention. Last night, the Texas Rangers defeated the New York Yankees to win the 2010 American League Pennant and earn the right to play in this years World Series.

Instead of the Texas Rangers ending a long dry spell, they instead had never won a major championship series in team history until last night. Now the Texas Rangers will be traveling to either Philadelphia or San Francisco on Wednesday to represent their league in the World Series Championship. As a Texan, it has been a long year as both the Dallas Cowboys and the Houston Texans have struggled just to win games.

However, now that the Texas Rangers are playing in their first World Series ever - that feeling of depression has turned into feelings of pride and enthusiasm as the Rangers did what many thought to be impossible Friday night by defeating last years champs the New York Yankees. While it's still to early to know if the Texas Rangers will win the 2010 World Series, I believe they have a better than 50/50 chance of winning it all after defeating the second best team in MLB - the New York Yankees last night.

Pros/Cons Of Divided Government

For the past two years, the United States has been lead by one political party (Democrats). When all three elected portions of our government (Senate, House and White House) are in the hands of one political party, the government seems to either move in an extreme liberal or conservative direction.

The pros of a divided government require a moderate position on major issues or nothing in Washington D.C. gets done. Another big thing on the pros side to divided government is that political extremism is kept in check. For much of US history, the American people have made a choice to not leave one political party in power too long in both the Congress and the White House.

On the cons side of divided government, there is that nagging problem of some things needing to get done in Washington, but no moderate position can be found to bring the two political party's together. Most Americans when asked by pollsters say that they want politicians in Washington to get along and work together to solve problems. However, that wish seldom becomes a reality - because both the Republican and Democratic Party's have been taken over by extremist who do not want to compromise on anything.

NPR Firing Of Juan Williams Was A Disgrace

While National Public Radio (NPR) receives very little money from the US federal government, the small sum it does receive should be cut after their wrongful firing of Juan Williams. Conservatives have rightly believed for a long time now that NPR is nothing more than a tax supported mouth piece for liberals.

Like millions of other people, I have watched the video of Juan Williams appearance on Fox News where he told Bill O'Reilly that he gets nervous when a group of people dress in Muslim clothing start to board a plane that he is traveling on. For that truthful comment, NPR fired Juan Williams and that fact proves what conservatives have been saying all along about National Public Radio.

The good news is that it did not take Juan Williams long to land on his feet, because the very next day - Fox News increased his contract with that network and gave him more responsibility and on-air face time at the network. NRP screwed up "big time" when it fired Juan Williams this week for speaking the truth, but my feeling is that Juan Williams will still be around long after the airwaves of NPR have gone silent.
