New Orleans Saints Not Sapped By Bountygate, Payton Now The Cause
 

A league official said Saints coach Sean Payton will lose more than $5.8 million as a result of his suspension by the NFL. His yearly salary is $7 million.

His suspension, which begins on April 1 will last about 10 months. The suspension ends after the Super Bowl on Feb. 3,2013 in New Orleans.


Saints defensive tackle Tom Johnson is angry at NFL commissioner Roger Goodell for suspending Payton for the entire 2012 season. Unlike Drew Brees, he's not speechless and had plenty to say.
"This is not right," Johnson told the Sun Herald. "We knew there would be some type of punishment, but not this. We didn't think anything like this  because of the type of man he is. He's our leader and the man we respect. It is going for us to move forward without Sean Payton for any amount of time, especially a year.

It’s fitting, therefore, that the Fourth of July is America's top-selling beer holiday, according to the Beer Institute. It estimated, in 2013, that sales of beer on the 4th could total $1 billion, doubtlessly higher today. “In moderation,” claims a CA brewery investor, Grover McKean, “beer is tasty and healthy.” Who could disagree?

joe mikaAs Donald Trump faces the top world leaders this week, including a face-time with Vladimir Putin, and as his healthcare proposals face an uphill climb, his poll numbers for how the nation views him could be better.

According to a morning Consult/Politico poll released Wednesday morning, his tweets, including that against MSNBC's Mika Brzezinski, and his personality are not helping him, at all.

indy dayII know the calendar says we are approaching the 4th of July, but, it just doesn’t feel like Independence Day.

Perhaps it should.  It’s hot as heck.  The airlines have been packed. The hot dogs are ready for grilling.  The umps are saying, "play ball". The patriotic activities are scheduled. The fireworks are ready-for-blasting. 

Yet, it just doesn’t feel like independence day.

bill rights2To President Thomas Jefferson, July 4th celebrated more than the signing of the Declaration of Independence. He thought it was a link to the future. The message prominent colonists sent to King George III led to the Constitution and the Bill of Rights, the initial and most prominent feature of which is the First Amendment that guarantees free speech. It’s part of the country’s fundamental essence that each man and woman can say what they feel about government, or anything else, proving President Donald Trump needs some civics lessons.
