It makes me feel better that we lost to the SB winner … just a little bit. (Have you noticed that fans whose teams have won at least one Super Bowl can be obnoxious, and those who have won 3 or more are intolerable? Please, G-d grant me the grace to be a gentle, giving fan … when we pummel our foes next year. So say we all.)

My biggest hope one day ….and soon ( next 2-3 years) Hines Ward will be the WR coach at Georgia. Talk about an upgrade. Talk about taking the field( the whole team) will a mental attitude to win, Yes, I know they lost last night, but look at his career. One smart and tough WR.

I am so glad President Obama has made this Asian American Initiative. It is EXACTLY what this country needs right now.

Nevermind all those crazy right wingers who are talking about unemployment, rising taxes, soldiers dying in unjust wars, etc.

What we need is for members of the most successful minority in America to feel good about themselves, and that can only be done with a White House Initiative.

Cool Jerk, although I do agree with you on your statement, where were the cries of unjust wars by this same right wingers. All of these Presidents are of the same ilk. But back to the matter at hand, Congrats Green Bay Jerk-Offs. No pun intended Cool Jerk

I do not support the simple-minded “conservatives” any more than the simple-minded “liberals,” polly…

Just using the nom du jour of those who dare disagree with the President. I could have just as easily said “racists,” but then I would be pegged as a…you guessed it, racist.

Just like those who disagreed with Bush were “commies” and “un-American.”

I am Asian-American, and we don’t ask for handouts from the US government. We take care of our own. We certainly don’t need any help or recognition from an idiot like Obama, who is doing everything he can to expand the size of government and overtax businesses so that the lazy and unmotivated can sponge off others.

Obama can take his welfare intitiatives to Jesse Jackson or Al Sharpton…

Asian American, SPOT ON! The dems want to hold minorities down with their social programs and it is great to see a post like yours. Maybe it is not working. Nicely put.

Glad the Packers won.

Uneducated folks thin that the POTUS is some Wizard of Oz character with all kinds of powers, like simply waving a wand.

Three branches of Gov check and balance that. When young people are educated in how their local, state and then federal governments function, they will maybe be qualified to have an opinion.

Nothing Barry Soetero has done, has done anything for what ailes us. Unemployment at perfection is always going to be around 3.5% and this clown’s initiatives have only helped China. Light bulbs are manufactured there not in USA. Oil has been for 35 years refined more and more and more in Indonesia ………….. thusly killing the jobs outlook in Texas and Lousiana. Obama, and all have shipped jobs over seas …………….ask Jeff Immelt CEO of GE.

Mr. Ledbetter,
We know a few things. 1) Where the Falcons will pick in the draft. 2) A lot of info on the likely top picks in the draft (thanks Kiper, et al). 3) We also know the Falcons need some play makers on both sides of the ball. Considering FA losses, returning guys from IR, and such, why don’t you do an article on who the Falcons should draft/likely will draft in April? I’m sure you would get a lot of response. Thanks

Hines Ward: Another Gullible Puppet & Idol Worshipper of President Jive-Talker

Frankly, Hines Ward should be GIVING orders to that jackball instead of receiving them from him.

Let's Go, Lockout!

The Green Bay Packers were the winners of the very FIRST Super Bowl.

Hopefully, this lockout will mean the end of the NFL full of greedy players and super-greedy owners and that the Green Bay Packers are the winners of the very LAST ever Super Bowl as well.

Good Riddance, NFL Crooks!

Asian American as a black man I am not sure if your Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson comment was to point at “african americans”. But let me say this first off there is a segment of black people (although small) who wants nothing to do with the politics of Al Sharpton,Jesse Jackson, Obama, Martin Luther King you can pick a whole list of “african americans” who are considered champions for our people.
Personally I would like “african americans” to gain the knowledge of self and turn to themselves for survival. But see the problem is that was strip from them and they were made to serve their slavemasters and depend on them for housing, food, clothing and welfare. Fast forward to today their slavemasters have pulled the rug and have ask that they “go on and make way” But the people mentioned above are still beggers. So the misguided ones continue to follow them begging and slouching around for work, shelter (section8) food(food stamps) and clothing.
There will always be a segment of the black community begging. You all created this monster. Instead of accepting MLK and integration that money should have been used to send african americans back to african or somewhere they could do for themselves. You started the programs when they were no longer needed on the slave fields now you want to cut them off. The generations have been set and ingrained.
But at the same time you have benefitted from them also look at your college fields, boxing rinks, tiger woods to the golf industry to heights they couldnt imagine. So lay off african americans they are only doing what you trained them to do.

Why is this still a debating issue? Everyone, including African-Americans, knows that one race is more lazy than the other….and we all know what that race is….I can admit that Blacks are better basketball players…why can blacks admit that Asians are smarter and work harder? …Facts are Facts…

Please don’t put Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. in the same category as Al Sharpton,Jesse Jackson, Obama. Dr. King is in a class by himself – and I mean that in a very good way. He wasn’t a perfect man, but he lived out the message of Jesus.
Back on topic – way to go Hines Ward. Don’t let anyone tell you what you can’t do!

Hines Warnes: Do you believe that if you did not play sports those same Asians would sit next to you and accept you?
How many Asians do you ever see supporting anything black? 50% of white Americans hate President Obama because he has some black blood: These athlets kill me with their out of touch of reality””

@GM Thanks please asians only want black people to sell haircare products and these filthy flea markets get out of here. Most other ethnic groups only need african americans for their spending power and there physical talents. I mean we make the world go round. Its all good though. But please believe Golf blew up because of tiger woods, Understand the major colleges and universities dont give scholarships to educate black men but to play sports and if they did. The african americans wouldnt use their new found knowledge to better their people. This probably wont make the blog but I thought i would type another one. The last one never made it up. This is how journalist should speak.
