    Is The U.S. Government Broken?

    I believe this whole problem is "Our", the American people's fault. We have sat back and let these so called governement leaders get us to the point we are at today. Repub's, Dem's, Indy's, whatever. All of them have done their own part in this.

    We now fear our government. The government no long fears us.

    How does it get fixed? My friends I REALLY DON'T KNOW.

    I don't believe that the country is broken. I do believe that some have misplaced their endorsement of policies. So many Americans don't understand the issues, relying on gut feel and media manipulation that we are getting the result we deserve. If we continue to be willfully ignorant and act against our self-interests, we will continue to decline relative to our expectations. If you like anarchy, where, essentially, "he who has the gold, rules," you're getting exactly what you want. If you believe in any kind of social contract, it appears that, despite events in other parts of the world, we are counter to that trend.

    Breaking Down the Saints' 2011 List of Free Agents

    Some more thoughts about FA

    I believe Cortney Roby's performance on ST is excellent. On most punts and kickoffs he the one that makes the tackle or sets it up. When he's not in there it really shows.

    Pierre Thomas has the ability to see the hole, to make extra yards, and he is superb at blocking in the backfield. Their offense is so much more when he's in their. I'm shocked that Ladell Betts and J. Jones are making more money than him. He's worth at least what they're making and more.

    Bush needs to be paid for games played and not injured.

    The need to draft Mark Ingram if he's around. That would make the difference. Ivory is great when he's playing but he'll always be hurt. He'll get injured soon and this will be his last year in the NFL.

    If the CBA isn't in place by the draft, there will be no 2011 NFL season.

    Why is everyone piling on the "Courtney Roby is expendable" line? He pretty much saved game 2 against the 49ers last season and when he's healthy he rocks as a kick returner. He's a very, very solid special teams player and we would be foolish to let him go.

    Likewise with Pierre Thomas. He has a way of dissecting defenses and breaking tackles. He single-handedly won the game against the Falcons to clinch a playoff spot.

    Is The U.S. Government Broken?

    Yes this country is broken. Can it be fixed? No, we are far too gone to have this country "Fixed". All that can be done now is just patch it up to stop most of the blood loss.

    With illegal immagration running grossly out of control, American's will soon be the minority.

    We have no leaders that will step up and do what needs to be done. IMO...

    1. All non US citizens....get out of this Nation.
    2. Stop giving the US people the choice; "English or Espanol"
    3. Fix this Nation first, then and only then will we help other Nations.
    4. Germany, England, France and the rest of Europe; we owe you no money. WW2 was won by our sweat and blood and we paid a high enough price to make sure you didn't turn into NAZI's. By the way, you're welcome.
    5. Reform welfare. Stop all the B.S. non working, baby makers, lazy scrubs on tax payers from riding a free lunch until they die.
    6. Raise the price of export wheat to the same price as a barrel of oil. Lets see if the OPEC and last long eatting slag.
    7. This Nation was founded on Christian ideals. Weather you like it or not, it's a fact, so deal with it.
    8. ACLU members must be publicly beheaded for misuse of the constitution.

    By now I feel sure I have already ticked some of you off, so I just stop a 8.

    Is The U.S. Government Broken?

    I'd say not so much the governmet as the economic system, as in most countries in western europe. After WW there was a massive need for rebuilding in the world an goods we're produced in huge quantities and there was a great need for labour. Industries were booming, people had money to pay for goods and the economy just kept growing.

    Thats really the problem with the economy all over the world its based on continued growth which in reality is completely impossible. A downturn ill come eventually, and I'm not counting the current recession because thats nothing compaed to how inflated the economies are. China looks like the All-everything right now but they wil face the same problem in 15-30 years while some other country will be climbing. Jobs have been movin to Asia for decades, first it was Japan, then that became to expensive so it was Hong Kong and Taiwan, that became to expensive so poduction moved to China which is becoming to expensive so production is moving to Vietnam and other countries.

    Thats eally the problem, thats where the jobs go. WIth the jobs gos the taxmoney and with taxmoney the well being of a country.

    Rumor is Les Miles told him to take a hike, although he denies it...

    Crowton insisted he was not fired or even asked to look for another job, despite media reports to the contrary. He came under fire from LSU fans for an offense that struggled throughout the season, particularly in the passing game

    Good. I have been down on Miles myself at times when strange plays has been called o even stranger clock management decisions have bn made. However he is one of the best in the business. If LSU only can get the QB position solidified there will be another National championship.

    Here's the thing, LSU has now established itself as a Top 10 football team annually.

    With local boys getting smart and staying instate: families can now participate, alumni can provide career networking, players can soak-in Fall Nights in Tiger Stadium.

    That said, what coach wouldn't want to bring his gig to Tiger Stadium and its solid recruiting classes...

    Miles leaves, bring in Chuckie...
