Super Bowl 2014:
Seahawks Bury Broncos

Wall Street Journal, by Kevin Clark

Original Article

Posted By:Dreadnought, 2/2/2014 10:44:25 PM

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J.—Peyton Manning is 37 years old. He has had four neck surgeries. He has admitted he doesn´t have the arm he used to. But despite all that, it took him until Sunday night to look truly helpless. Like he was staring at something even he, the most prepared quarterback in NFL history, couldn´t navigate. It seemed like the quarterback who had always thought of everything had nothing left. The Seattle Seahawks wrecked Manning and his historically spectacular offense to win Super Bowl XLVIII, 43-8, in one of the biggest blowouts in the history of the league´s biggest game.

Kind of feel a little sorry for Manning, the consensus greatest QB in the history of the game, but I have to admit I´m glad that strutting peacock, Mr. Ed Horseface Elway was humiliated beyond all expectation. I wonder where Mr. Ed is?

I always thought John Elway was foolish for talking Peyton Manning into coming to Denver, and getting rid of Tebow. But, I really dislike Seattle´s in-stadium fans, and their attitudes. I was half-heartedly rooting for Denver. But, I have to say now it has been proven, John Elway was a fool.

The Broncos lost on the first play. That messed up snap gave a psychological advantage to the Seahawks that propelled them to the win. Added to that was the Broncos beat themselves in spite of the Legion of Doom. Congrats to the Seattle Seahawks on a terrific win.

Congrats to the Seahawks and condolences to the Broncos.

I was heartily disappointed as I follow no specific team but wish to watch a good game. The SuperBowl has ever promised a much better game than it seems to provide.

Well, there´s always next year ;-)

Could only take half an hour of it and then switched to the Puppy Bowl which was more interesting and competitive. Renee Fleming was great singing The National Anthem. Only thing worth watching in the game. Now the depression sets in as I realize that there is no more football until July.

Thanks to the Seahawks for crushing the Orange--we in San Diego salute you! Well done. My 19- year old predicted this the first week of the season and I agreed. We´re just glad it was Denver instead of San Diego because nothing was going to stop the Seahawks. Wiping the smugness off of Elway´s face was most enjoyable to watch. Priceless.

Nobody knows who is going to win the game, that´s why they play it!

Two great quarterbacks, one old, one new. Seattle played the game at 90mph and Denver played the game at 70mph and since speed kills Seattle won the game big time. Nobody could have quarterbacked Denver to a win after the first play.

That was a great game, and I´m not even a Sea hawk fan!! I cheered for them this time because three of their players are Mississippi State alumni and I like to see ourplayers do well. And also because I´m usually a Patriots fan and I wanted revenge for the AFC championship.

BTW, I told my BIL that Seattle´s defense reminded me of Buddy Ryan´s 4-6 defense of the ´85 Bears. That team had a way of leaving generally excellent offenses in complete shambles as well.

Ooh the sour grapes on this thread! Bravo Seahawks you are a cohesive team and worthily deserve to win. They came to play starting right back in the pre-season. At a time when the state of Washington has forced it´s way onto the map by supporting marijuana and gay marriage issues, this is entirely refreshing to see a strong positive community tide of commitment and enthusiasm take the limelight. Go Hawks again and again.

With great top management support, I´m glad to see Pete Carroll succeed at the pro level. He´s a superb judge and motivator of talent, talent overlooked or misunderstood by others. Even their recent high-speed practices were exceptional and well noticed. The resulting Seahawk team is historically dominant and impressive to watch today. WTG Pete and Hawks!
... The Seahawk fans, the home stadium noise and all in Seattle are a ridiculous joke. I don ´t know what they think they´re doing up there and why it is encouraged. Twelfth Man??? The mindless loud crowd, more like. The team deserves better.

I´m fine with a Seattle win, Though I wss for Denver. But I hate a lousy game. I didn´t feel the Hawks did more than a little better than mediocre job, a level diminished by the horrible competition. It was the Broncos that sucked in every aspect. Their offense was awful and the defense was worse. Manning, who has a rifle shot accuracy most of the time over threw about thirty percent of his shots. He was hampered by rarely having a receiver in good position. What ever was bothering him was compounded as the game went on.

All in all, Manning who really is one of the best QBs ever, and the Broncos fell off the rail last night. That in turn didn´t allow the Seahawks to show what a great team they really are.

Sad!

Social Security stops trying

Washington Post, by Marc Fisher    Original Article

The Social Security Administration announced Monday that it will immediately cease efforts to collect on taxpayers’ debts to the government that are more than 10 years old. The action comes after The Washington Post reported that the government was seizing state and federal tax refunds that were on their way to about 400,000 Americans who had relatives who owed money to Social Security. In many cases, the people whose refunds were intercepted had never heard of any debt, and the debts dated as far back as the middle of the past century. “I have directed an immediate halt to further

Despite promises to the contrary, it appears that State Senator Wendy Davis (D-Fort Worth) voted on bills that affect her clients and favorably impact the bottom line of her law firm. “I have never done anything in a way that represents a conflict in my voting and something that would benefit me personally,” she said in an interview, but state records seem to tell a different story. The Dallas Morning News´ Senior Political Writer Wayne Slater (DMN) reported that Davis supported legislation governing a toll road project.

Democrats have had a recurring problem in special elections this year: Their voters aren’t turning out. If a weak economy and continued Obamacare problems persist, the November elections could be a disaster for Democrats. Last week, Democrats lost two special elections they weren’t planning to. Arlington, Va., is a classic wealthy ObamaTown, filled with government workers and limousine liberals. Mitt Romney won only 29 percent of the vote in 2012. But last Tuesday, Democrats lost their first election for the five-member Arlington County Board in 15 years when John Vihstadt, a Republican running as an independent, won a vacancy on

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said little as federal agents seized and then released cattle last week from the Bundy ranch, but there is little doubt that the highly charged episode was threatening to become a political headache for the Nevada Democrat. The Bureau of Land Management is headed by former longtime Reid aide Neil Kornze, who was confirmed by the Senate as BLM director on Tuesday, just as federal authorities descended on the cattle ranch outside Mesquite, Nev. Mr. Kornze issued a statement Saturday saying that the bureau would return the cattle and withdraw its agents from the ranch

On the defensive about their prospects in the midterm elections this fall, congressional Democrats have spent all of April savaging the Republican budget proposal, decrying the Koch brothers and championing a series of bills meant to ingratiate themselves to struggling middle-class voters. In promoting legislation that would extend unemployment benefits, increase the minimum wage and promote equal pay for women, the Democrats have declared themselves the party that will ensure a “fair shot” for all. Republicans, they insist, are the party of special interests. It has been a classic Washington messaging campaign for these partisan

On a trip to Moscow early in her tenure as secretary of state, Hillary Rodham Clinton played the role of international saleswoman, pressing Russian government officials to sign a multibillion-dollar deal to buy dozens of aircraft from Boeing. A month later, Clinton was in China, where she jubilantly announced that the aerospace giant would be writing a generous check to help resuscitate floundering U.S. efforts to host a pavilion at the upcoming World’s Fair. Boeing, she said, “has just agreed to double its contribution to $2 million.” Clinton did not point out that, to secure the donation, the State Department

Overland Park city spokesman Sean Reilly says two people died at the Jewish Community Center of Greater Kansas City campus and one was killed at Village Shalom, which is a retirement community that is several blocks away from the center.

Former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin blasted President Barack Obama for nominating as his new Health and Human Services Secretary the same woman who ordered the shutdown of the war memorials during the so-called government shutdown last year. After accepting Kathleen Sebelius´ resignation Friday, Obama nominated Sylvia Burwell, the former Office of Management and Budget director. This is the same person who sent the email initiating the barricading of the memorials, even as veterans were arriving in D.C. on their "honor flights" to see the memorials that they built.

Following the massacre of grammar-school children in Newtown, Conn., in December 2012, high-powered weapons have been used to kill innocent victims in more senseless public incidents. Those killings, however, are only a fragment of the total harm caused by the misuse of firearms. Each year, more than 30,000 people die in the United States in firearm-related incidents. Many of those deaths involve handguns. The adoption of rules that will lessen the number of those incidents should be a matter of primary concern to both federal and state legislators. Legislatures are in a far better position than judges to assess the

The Obama administration said Friday that it would block Iran’s nominee as ambassador to the United Nations from entering the United States, setting up a new confrontation with Tehran just as relations with the Islamic republic appeared to be improving. The decision to bar entry to the diplomat, who was allegedly involved in the 1979 seizure of the U.S. Embassy in Tehran, followed intense political pressure on the administration from Republicans and Democrats on Capitol Hill. But it also marked a rare instance in which Washington has effectively vetoed another country’s preferred choice as envoy to the United Nations. Iran

Distressed homeowners seeking

Struggling homeowners across the country could face significant new tax bills if they receive mortgage relief from their banks, a prospect that threatens to slow the housing recovery and put further strain on distressed borrowers. The collapse of the housing market and plunging home prices left millions of people stuck owing more on their mortgages than their homes were worth. Some have worked with their banks to reduce the loan amount to avoid foreclosure or enable a sale. In 2007, Congress adopted a law that spared those homeowners from being taxed on the amount of the loan that was forgiven. But

On Thursday, Secretary of Health and Human Services Kathleen Sebelius resigned her position. The New York Times reported the resignation as a punishment for failure: Officials said Ms. Sebelius, 65, made the decision to resign and was not forced out. But the frustration at the White House over her performance had become increasingly clear, as administration aides worried that the crippling problems at HealthCare.gov, the website set up to enroll Americans in insurance exchanges, would result in lasting damage to the president’s legacy. So Sebelius stuck around just long enough to reach the mythical 7 million enrollment number

On Saturday, I wrote about the standoff at Bundy Ranch. That post drew a remarkable amount of traffic, even though, as I wrote then, I had not quite decided what to make of the story. Since then, I have continued to study the facts and have drawn some conclusions. Here they are. First, it must be admitted that legally, Bundy doesn’t have a leg to stand on. The Bureau of Land Management has been charging him grazing fees since the early 1990s, which he has refused to pay. Further, BLM has issued orders limiting the area on which Bundy’s cows can

Casual marijuana use may come with some not-so-casual side effects. For the first time ever, researchers at Northwestern University have analyzed the relationship between casual use of marijuana and brain changes – and found that young adults who used cannabis just once or twice a week showed significant abnormalities in two important brain structures. The study’s findings, to be published Wednesday in the Journal of Neuroscience, are similar to those of past research linking chronic, long-term marijuana use with mental illness and changes in brain development. Dr. Hans Breiter, co-senior study author, said he was inspired to look at the effects of casual

Toddlers show racial bias when picking playmates, a study reveals. They also take account of how fairly others behave. Researchers tested the reaction of white 15-month-olds as toys were distributed. Two white adults divided the toys, one equally and the other unequally. Seventy per cent of the toddlers chose to play with the researcher who distributed the toys fairly. But in a second test, when one researcher favoured a white recipient over an Asian one, they picked the ‘fair’ researcher less often, the journal Frontiers in Psychology reports. And the babies are more likely to help those who share the same ethnicity, which is known as
