I wonder how many 49ers will come out after their careers and admit they are gay or have the taxpayers pay for a sex change operation.

Let a few good people get a headstart to get out of town, and then the best that can happen is a 9.9 on the Richter and start over.

San Francisco Becomes First City to Mandate Taxpayers to Fund Sex-Change Operations
November 11, 2012 | Filed under: Law & Government,Life & Society,Top Stories | By: Heather Clark

San Francisco has approved a measure that utilizes taxpayer funds to pay for the sex-change operations of the uninsured, becoming the first city in the nation to do so.

The Health Commission okayed the move last week, following long talks between health officials and citizens who expressed their desire to obtain mastectomies and reconstruction of their reproductive organs. It was approved despite Mayor Ed Lee’s slashing of other city services and increased taxes due to record budget needs of $7 billion dollars.

And pretty much, however America won it's revolution, nobody cares.

And pretty much, whoever wins the Superbowl, nobody cares,

And pretty much, whatever the president of America says, nobody cares.

And pretty much, whoever wins the World Series, nobody cares.

Nevertheless, America remains a Great country, through innovation, risk-taking, and the belief that everyone is entitled to "life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness."

For this, the day people don't care, will be the end of civilization as we know it.

“Ray Lewis - convicted felon and probable murderer. Paid off families of the victims.”

I’ve never seen so many Low Information football fans in my life.

He was not convicted of anything, he plead to perjury and it’s a good thing he did.

The prosecutor had nothing on anybody and was going after the guy with the most to lose.

FYI Low Information fans....8 out of 9 witnesses stated that Lewis attempted to break up the fight.

Charges dropped...Get over it and enjoy the football game.

Thank you. I would rather not have anyone with a question mark over him, but the facts don’t play out. Even if it was he, honestly it would probably be manslaughter - it was a melee and anything could happen when a group starts to fight. He certainly wasn’t going there outside a stuffed bar of partiers planning to target these people.

BTW, how many other Ravens have records? I love how glibly people accuse all the players based on 1.

The smoker is on the deck with chicken on. Got a new puppy to replace our Belgian Tervuren that we lost last fall. The new puppy is a tri-colored Rough Coat Collie and his name is Rocky. Got him in December and he is big enough now that he can’t squeeze through the bars on the deck anymore. He is keeping me company on grill duty.

Happy Super Bowl Sunday.

Hopefully it will be a good game. The Niners have the edge in every offense/defense run/pass category except when the Niners pass on offense. Jim Harbaugh has already done an amazing job turning the Niners around from a mediocre team only two years ago. If the Niners win, Jim Harbaugh will have in two years taken a 6-10 mediocre team to becoming Super Bowl Champions. This will have EXCEEDED the speed of Bill Walsh and Vince Lombardi of the Green Bay Packers who did the same thing in three years. However, the team Harbaugh took over wasn’t as bad as the teams the year previous to Walsh (Niners were 2-14 the previous year) or Vince Lombardi (Packers were 1-10-1 the previous year). OK, let’s not count our chickens before they’re hatched. Niners still have to win this one. They should.

BTW, it’s been a good year for my predictions – running at 70% this year (and 57% over the last seven years – not too shabby).

SF As against Atlanta, the Niners need to RUN (#4 in NFL) more than pass (#23 in the NFL). Running the ball effectively (they were 5 yards per carry average against Atlanta) should open up the passing game. If the Niners get happy feet and start passing too much, they could get into trouble. Ball control on offense will be a key to victory for SF. The Niners defense should stop the mediocre Ravens offense. SF defense is #2 in the NFL in points and #4 against both the run and the pass in YDG.

Ravens The Ravens, like Atlanta, is a hard team to figure. In the regular season, among NFL teams, they were 10th in offense and 12th in defense (based on points). Yet somehow they beat NE (I guess there were a lot of NE injuries). Somehow their somewhat average defense stopped the #1 offense in the NFL. The Ravens also took advantage of NE’s 3rd worst pass defense in the NFL.

Projected winner: SF

“He was not convicted of anything, he plead to perjury.....”

ROFL

You should take some law courses. Before one can be sentenced, one has to be convicted, regardless of the fact the he pled down to perjury from murder. A plea deal is a plea deal. He had the victims’ blood in his car. :-)

What many forget is that Jim Harbaugh (the current coach of San Francisco) was the quarterback for the Baltimore Ravens when the Colts came back to Baltimore for the first time since sneaking out in the Mayflower moving vans

(WILL NEVER WILL USE THAT COMPANY!)

He led Baltimore to an emotional victory over the colts with Johnny Unitus and other former colts standing on the BALTIMORE sideline. When the game ended, Jim ran over and gave the game ball to Unitus who looked very surprised at the honor. It was an emotional time for many old Colt fans who saw the torch being officially passed to the Ravens in a very classy way thanks to Ravens quarterback Jim Harbough.


Quarterback Jim Harbaugh hands the game ball to John Unitas after the Ravens used a 17-0 rally to beat the Indianapolis Colts, 38-31, on Nov. 29, 1998.

“Pre-game show goes down the toilet.”

I agree. Having bama on the pre-game show is nothing more than MSM pimping for Obama. It’s sad and I guess it shouldn’t surprise me given how the MSM has covered for an promoted Obama in the last four years - but it still does.

I’ve never seen so many Low Information football fans in my life.

He (Ray Lewis) was not convicted of anything, he plead to perjury and it’s a good thing he did.

The prosecutor had nothing on anybody and was going after the guy with the most to lose.

FYI Low Information fans....8 out of 9 witnesses stated that Lewis attempted to break up the fight.

Charges dropped...Get over it and enjoy the football game.

Thank you! But actually Lewis pled guilty to a misdemeanor charge of obstruction of justice not perjury. Lewis admitted he gave a misleading statement to police on the morning after the killings and was sentence to 12 months probation. As part of his plea deal, he testified against his two companions of that night, Oakley and Sweeting who were later acquitted of all charges in June of 2000 on the basis that it was self defense. Ironically if Lewis had not turned State’s evidence and copped a plea deal that led to the probation and the biggest fine ever from the NFL for a non-substance abuse violation, chances are he would have been fully acquitted just like Oakley and Sweeting.

The best anyone has pieced together is that a group of people including Jacinth Baker and Richard Lollar provoked a fight with Lewis’s group and that “allegedly” someone in that group pulled a gun on Lewis and his companions. There were several other violent fights going on at the same time, BTW, it had turned into a melee. It should be noted that Baker and Lollar were not exactly choir boys themselves but then neither were Lewis or his companions at the time. Lewis evidently did try to break up the fight and get his companions into his limo but not before Oakley and or Sweeting stabbed Baker and Lollar. As they sped away from the scene of the fight, Lewis was supposed to have told Oakley and Sweeting to keep their mouths shut, fearing the repercussions to his NFL career, and the fact that the suit Lewis wore that night was never found along with his initial statements to the police, resulted in the obstruction of justice charges. Lewis did settle out of court, two civil suits related to that night, but it should be noted that settling a suit is not an admission of guilt and was probably the advisable thing for him to do from a legal perspective.

http://detroit.cbslocal.com/2013/01/23/5-common-misconceptions-about-ray-lewis-murder-trial/

Yes, Lewis admits that he was hanging with thugs, living the thug life and headed down a very bad path. But Lewis believes and says that that night was he calls his “watershed” moment and a real wakeup call, one that led him to a path to his deep religious faith and staying on the straight and narrow ever since. It should also be noted that Lewis has never since been involved in any criminal activity and is by all accounts a pretty squeaky clean guy. OK perhaps not 100% - never married, he does have six kids by four women – three by one woman, the mother to his three oldest children and his girlfriend from college and one each with the two other women but again, it needs to be stated that all those children were born prior to 2000 and that life changing night in Atlanta. It also needs to be noted that Ray Lewis doesn’t just write child support checks for his six kids but is actively involved in their lives and one of the reasons for him retiring is to spend more time with them.

Lewis also counsels young NFL players, and not just Ravens’ rookie player and countless other young men, about his mistakes and how to not make the same ones he did.

I understand why some people think Lewis got away with “murder” but the facts in evidence do not support it. I also understand why some people think Lewis’ religious convictions are phony, but again, the evidence does not support it. Whatever type of person Ray Lewis was back then (which by his own admission was bad), he is not by any and all accounts that same person today. And he says God did not send him down the wrong path, he takes all the responsibility for that, but with his life turned around, he gives God and his personal savior Jesus Christ all the credit. But some people will never forgive him for what they “think” he did and will never give him any credit for what he does and how he lives his life now.
