All levels of babysit and brainwash our precious young with every possible lack of education. We reason with emotion. The schools teach paganism, anti American ideologies, deconstructionism and other dreadful deceits.

It’s strange to think that back in that bizarro reality known as the 1980s, Ernie “Beverly Hills Chihuahua 2” Hudson was apparently too big a star to be bothered to appear in a little animated show, so they had to get Arsenio freakin’ Hall to do an impression of him.

This might explain why they also had him doing some of the bumpers for the show:.

Tennessee Titans at Jacksonville: After a brief run of offensive aptitude, the Jaguars had their struggles last week with five sacks and three turnovers in a loss to Buffalo.

Tennessee is stout in the secondary, having allowed the fewest passing touchdowns (13) in the NFL, and is facing an offense that could be missing both Maurice Jones Drew and Cecil Shorts.

There was some question at first whether he was pushed out of bounds.”I was out of bounds,” Moore said.

But the ability to pass out of that play adds another element that can often break a defense.

The bills passed on voice votes. They go next to the state Senate. That chamber wrapped up its two year session on Tuesday and it wasn’t clear if Senate Majority Leader Scott Fitzgerald would reconvene the body to take up the bills. He kind of faked that he was going to go to a power move and bull rushed the tackle back and slipped outside and got around clean and for the quarterback to even think he would be there, and that’s why the strip sack happened.

That scenario would result in there being 538 parts per million (ppm) of carbon in the atmosphere in 2100, which is significantly lower than the 936 ppm that the researchers estimate will be in the atmosphere without that effort..

Again, the usual disclaimer applies: This isn’t an exercise in negativity. Nobody is suggesting the Eagles should’ve taken Jared Goff. It’s just an interesting play that gives a good look at some of the things NFL defenses do to keep quarterbacks and play callers from diagnosing coverages.

You can do a lot of stuff where you can spread them out and have the option to do that.
