Word spread like wildfire Tuesday afternoon, with various sports media sources reporting that Georgia quarterback Jacob Eason has made a decision regarding his future; and all sources point to Seattle. Several sports reporters speculated on twitter last night, following the Alabama victory in the national championship game, with many mentioning the rumor mill had already begun and barring any last minute “change of heart” – Eason would be a Huskie next season. No official word has been given as of yet.
A native of Lake Stevens, Washington, it comes as no surprise that the talented quarterback would consider returning to his home state. Only 20 years old, he would be required by the NCAA to sit out the 2018 season before making an impact for the University of Washington. While at Georgia, Eason completed 55.1% of his throws for 2,430 yards and 16 touchdowns, with eight interceptions.
A knee sprain forced Eason to the sidelines for the Notre Dame game this season, where freshman Jake Fromm took the helm and never looked back. With Fromm’s success, Georgia will apparently lose arguably one of the best quarterbacks in the SEC to the Pac-12.
Political Pipe Dreams
As 2017 comes screeching to its inevitable but satisfactory conclusion, it’s clear that Progressive “Visions of Sugar Plums Dancing in Their Heads,” sweeping the Congress back into Democrat hands in 2018, are actually turning into Pipe Dreams. Hope is not a battle plan.
The gallimaufry of the Democrat party is evidence enough that they are in deep trouble. Virginia and Alabama election victories aside, they will be unable to rally enough voters to their banner when their entire sales pitch has been trashed by its own failures. Their red banner, upon which is emblazoned a yellow hammer and sickle, is no longer appealing to Americans. A catharsis is in the making for Democrats. Which direction will they go, further “Left” into the deep dark recesses of totalitarianism or make a right turn back into the sunlight of Constitutionalism?
Reports are surfacing even now, that Latino Congressman, Gutierrez, and others, got into a shouting match with Senator Chuckie Schumer over their party’s failure to stop the GOP’s tax cuts or, and especially important to Latino Democrats, failing to include the DACA act as a non negotiable item to be removed. Special interest groups, like the Congressional Latinos, are now engage in vituperative attacks against an elderly white Senators from New York, because there is no direction anymore, there is no leadership in that sector and a catharsis is coming.
There are simply too many chefs in the Democrat kitchen for an effective menu of their socialist
political nonsense to be prepared and dished up when the dining area is emptying of patrons. Not everyone wants a steady diet of “arroz con pollo or Tacos y enchiladas.”
And, what happened to the Congressional Black Caucus? With intellectual illuminaries like Sheila Jackson Lee who says, It’s a direct result of Trump’s racist hatred of African Americans that caused an American Airlines plane to derail in Washington state. Just another way to genocide us.” or Georgia Rep. Hank Johnson who opined the island of Guam could capsize if a brigade of US Marines were stationed there. They remain silent.
And, the disease spreads as we see happening in the UN. I love the defiant reaction of the UN’s General Assembly to President Trump’s comment” “Let ‘em, I don’t care!” in response to Trump’s threat to relieve non cooperative countries of the burden of how to spend the money the American taxpayers gifts them each year. Oh, woe! What a silly vote, to deny the US its right to recognize Jerusalem as Israel’s capital or denying the US its right to move its embassy there.
What this all means is that America has leadership again. Trump, a successful, apodictic businessman, not obliged to agree with his political handlers, but whose realistic visions has determined that America needs to be led from the front not from behind, is leading. Happily, enough voters agreed with him that America’s turnaround, while painful for some, is a relief for most.
How can it be possible for the Socialist Democrat program of top down collectivism compete with the future financial success that Donald Trump is introducing? Democrat ‘happy talk’ of fairness for all, specifically does not include any but the victims, losers, perverts and favored politicians that has been hung around America’s neck like the proverbial albatross since the social programs of the 1960’s and even earlier. Confidence is returning to America. People feel it, see it and know it. “Merry Christmas” has returned to the market place again. That can’t be bad, except to Progressives who still dwell in their pipe dreams.
Remember freedom is the goal, the Constitution is the way. Now, go get ‘em! (22Dec17)
