Herman Cain

I have been mostly liberal my entire life, however the older I become, the more conservative my beliefs are. I have started to put things in perspective and examine them from a more objective point of view. However, I do not vote for a candidate solely because of their partisan ship. I try my best to look at their approaches, whether they are practical and use common sense to resolve problems, whether or not they have demonstrated integrity throughout their political career, and what their agendas are. Herman Cain seems to have a very pragmatic approach on how to resolve these issues that are ever so present in our world today. This scheme by the media to isolate each individual conservative candidate and attack him is preposterous. Even more so is how blind the public seems to be? I find it rather intriguing that these supposedly so-called victims are just now coming forward. Now, I am not particularly supporting Herman Cain, but wasn't their a similar situation when Clinton ran for President?  What if Herman Cain is innocent? It is more difficult for an innocent man to prove he is innocent than it is for another individual to say he is guilty! What evidence do these "victims" have? Now, I'm not undermining the victims of crimes like these. If Cain is guilty then there should be consequences.  I am simply asking for evidence. After all aren't we innocent until proven guilty?

Presidential Election 2008

If McCain cannot multitask, how in the hell can he do a good job at President??? We need a change. Bush in 8 years has destroyed the economy. McCain does not even address the most important issues and when he does, he is very inconsistent. God help us if McCain becomes our president. If Obama were white it would not even be an issue. This man is a very educated individual who has a good vision for America.  If people cannot set aside their insignificant convictions for once and vote for the issues at hand, then we get what is coming to us. Race, Gender, and Party all should be irrelevant. Those things are not that significant stacked to the real issues: Economy, National Security, War in Iraq, etc. Everyone is entitled to vote, we all have an equal say. However, like with every choice there comes a consequence. Hopefully when people exercise their right and responsibility to vote they understand the consequences.

We will be better without Crawford and Bradley.

I have said this so many times before, we will be better this season because the surrounding talent is so much better. This will be our deepest roster since at least the 2003 season. Crawford and Bradley may have averaged 32 ppg combined but they cost us 6.1 turnovers per game (more than one third of the teams average). These 6.1 turnovers led to on average 10-15 points for the opposing team.  Also, how many uneccessary threes did they attempt that led to a long rebound and an easy basket for the opposing team? Do not get me wrong, what they did last season was admirable. They played very hard and fought every game. However, due to our lack of depth because of injuries, we had to depend on them to carry us on their back. Hence, they scored majority of the points but  made most of the mistakes in doing so. This team has 13 scholarship players who for the most part are rated 3 stars or higher. This is a more talented team with limited experience. It may take them some time to gel and we may lose games early but by January or so this Kentucky team will be dangerous. Go Cats.

Fed up with the smack from many UL fans

It is amazing. We have not won a Championship since '98. On the other hand, Louisville has not won one since '86. Still we hear smack about our so-called drought from someone has not won a championship since the national average of gas was 86 cents per gallon and the federal minimum wage was $3.35. Since when is a Final Four more important than Championship banner??? We had a few slump years but our "slump" would be considered a success at almost any other university...including the University of Louisville. Go Cats!!!
