Decided to lurk and not comment until I saw the ridiculous posts.  Social security is mismanaged. There is no plausible reason to tap into the trust fund.  The only thing needed was to stop pretending programs like disability aren't funded with social security taxes and start make the much needed cuts.  This means tightening up or altogether eliminating disability and all the other programs democrats have tacked on to the program.  Its imperative to rid the program of waste. Regan did this in the '80's yet democrats have overburdened the fund once again.   Keep it the way FDR intended.  If an immigrant has worked & paid taxes for 20 years then he/she is entitled to benefits.  Due to the lack of U.S born population through abortion & childlessness immigration is the only engine which can replace workers at a fast enough pace.   The entire system will crash they are robbing the fund.  Irresponsible, spendthrift overspending ways will lead to destruction.  I don't have any hope in those who run it or the people of America who vote for these lunatics.

Interesting:  I was searching for the meaning of "legalism" and found it in the posts of Marquest Burton.  Thanks so much for posting like a true legalistic Pharisee!

Nancy was overrated, spoiled, arrogant & nasty.  Often bragging about how important she was and how much money she made which was only due to her looks. She never practiced often partied instead, Nancy didn't respect her sport & often fell at competitions never skated clean and was awarded medals. She didn't take it seriously. Skating was just a vehicle to get money, celebrity & fame.   Nancy Kerrigan wasn't a good skater she was a shill for corporate America.  Her sneering of competitors & her treatment of officials & people was appalling.  She didn't have the great talent to get away with such behavior.  I'm so pleased the Ty Cobb of figure skating deservedly lost the gold.  Thank YOU GOD!!  The 1994 Olympics gave us a glimpse into her ugly character, she had too much p.r creating lies to cover her ugliness.  Snapping at reporters & officials as she sashayed through the Olympic village with her married man while, the wife scared into silence publicly cowered from Nancy's wrath.  The media bowed to her & fought her battles ripping apart Harding & Baiul(no wonder Kristi wanted no part of it)!  Kerrigan wasn't really hurt, required no stitches or surgery nor bed rest.  She was given special exemption as rules & other skaters were swept aside to accommodate her demands.  A Diva w/o the great talent.  She suffered a bruise on her knee--no blood.  Kerrigan used the ensuing publicity to gain the sympathy vote(very manipulative).  There was never anything courageous about her at all.  The whole thing was a publicity hoax.  The arrogance of filming her gold medal victory commercial immediately after the technical program.  It took a ton of gall to plan & book a huge meeting room for her victory party.  Worst of all, she was smirking enjoying it when Oksana was injured.  In 1992 Nancy was given multi-millions in contracts & endorsements ahead of deserving 1992 Olympic champion, Kristi Yamaguchi, who got next to nothing while Kerrigan profited from corporate racism.  In 1994, it was the same with the brilliant Olympic champion, Oksana Baiul where Kerrigan profited from corporate xenophobia. Oksana Baiul was also snubbed by corporate sponsors, who weren't interested in the biggest box-office star.  Kerrigan, an acid-hearted, sharp-tongued, gold digger achieved what she wanted----money, money, money & celebrity(however D list it had been).  Doubt she's changed much.

Oksana Baiul was railroaded by Oprah & the media for the DWI a questionable charge in most other states.  A rookie cop who took no tests & had no proof Oksana was drunk.  She had a BAC 0.168-- less than a teaspoon!  However in Conn. the strictest state in the nation underage drinking is a zero tolerance,  Baiul was found guilty of being underage & having alcohol in her bloodstream. However, miniscule the amount.   Baiul was the designated driver for the drunken gay man, the passenger in her car.  His name was, Ari Zakarian, a good friend of Viktor Petrenko at the time.  Presently he's the agent of Evgeny Plushenko. Yet, the media left out these vital facts.  It sensationalized the story rushing to judgment declaring Baiul an alcoholic, drunk driver & implying she was a slut.  Ari Zakarian, a gay friend was depicted a bar pick-up.  Zakarian was favorably noted by the media for pulling an unconscious Baiul from the crash. Little was mentioned about his role in the crash.  He fought Oksana for the wheel tests showed him with a  BAC of 0.18 which is very drunk.  Yet the media & Oksana's team left out this vital fact. Clearly the struggle over the wheel caused the crash. There wasn't ever definitive proof the car was speeding.  Well Baiul  is suing these same agents for  theft. She kept quiet because her agents advised it.  When they should've cleared up the matter.  They wanted Oksana to have a "bad girl" reputation in order to justify their stealing.  People would think drunken, bad girl Oksana ran through all her money.  Gritshuk wouldn't have lasted a week in Baiul's situation.

Why do people, who are very critical of her skating & those who don't like her skating come to her videos to post their dislike or hatred?  Oksana Baiul's competitive career ended 20 yrs.ago.  She hasn't skated these types of pro events in over ten years!  Do you know that even your whining helps to make her relevant?  Oksana's jumps were magnificent!  She jumped w/power, like a man-- I saw her live.  Figure skating is now a dead sport--thanks to all of the meddling, bickering & overemphasis on technique that lacks athleticism. One can have great technique but be a poor athlete.  The Olympic creed is " swifter, higher, stronger and fighting well."  Oksana embodied all those qualities.  All criticisms of Baiul's technique are invalid.  Btw I watched some historical skating film footage & I've concluded "the figures" & the 6.0 system were NOT subjective at all. They were discarded for base reasons.  Constant manipulation of the rules for political reasons destroyed figure skating.  Successful sports don't ear down the foundation.  RIP figureskating 1896-1996.

There was a clip of her in the documentary "Brown Sugar."  I knew (or just had a a hunch) that Joyce Bryant had a powerful vocal instrument.  Racism prevented her from having a bigger career as she wasn't as accepted as her talent demanded.  Nor was she afforded the appropriate opportunities.  It was a shame that her records were banned in the south, preventing her from touring, and making personal & promotional appearances.  A few other places joined the south in banning her records which ended her recording career. Meanwhile, Marilyn Monroe was posing naked & violating decency standards. Yet the "bronze Venus" was not allowed to sing & appear publicly or tour.  Good to know this lady ended it singing for God---the one who gave her that unique voice.  What a resilient woman!  She didn't let it break her and kept going.  Well done Ms. Bryant for a life well lived.

Well the piling on to attack Mr. Chan is wrong and judgmental.  It may have been the right decision.  Perhaps the church would be best served today if many of the old, rigid pastors & leadership stepped down from the fold.  Many persons in church leadership have served out of obligation to parents.  Many become pastors, reverends w/o a calling from God---but rather from pressure & expectations of others.  No one should  spend their entire church life serving out of gifts that are not his or hers. Now that is a tragedy.   Many in church leadership practice favoritism which is partiality and cripples the church & the laity.  There is very little Christian discipleship going on in churches today.  There is not a lot of good, moral, God-centered leadership happening among churches.  Many who go to seminary are not "called by God."    Today church leadership is all about credentials who has the p.h.d or who went to the most prestigious seminary.   The things of God have been lost in many or even most American churches.  The sacraments have become dry, meaningless rituals for many.  Spirit-filled people who are on fire for Christ are badly needed in today's churches.  Yet, sadly these are the very persons ostracized, marginalized & turned away from any leadership positions in today's churches.   No wonder the church has no real voice or representation of God's perspective in the culture.  Sad all of this useless barking and in-fighting. 
"She" is a he, Francis with an "i." He's an author, a pastor, a surferdude, and whatever fame he had was multiplied by Justin Taylor finding him newsworthy. Now, that's fame. Chan did at least a video and some written communication explaining this decision, which you can see at the link.

ROMO IS GARBAGE.  He's old garbage @ 33 yrs. old  with only 1 playoff appearance.  Dallas crock boy fans have no pride & no standards to think Romo is the answer.  Romo's really old in nfl time. Why compare him to Flacco who's been playing about 4-5 seasons not 11 like Romo.  Flacco doesn't fall apart blowing every big game because he can't take any kind of pressure.  Romo is too mentally fragile like most chokers.  You can just tell coach Garret wants to kick his ass.  Romo's been around a long time flopping & being useless excuse for a qb.  Defenses don't win superbowls unless they're doing all the scoring.  The 2000 ravens---not the 2012 squad.  Sick of looking at Romo.  Division I-AAA undrafted waste which is why he can't make the grade.  Eli was a #1, Flacco was a draft pick.  They're man enough to handle the pressure they don't choke and are durable.  If they're bad they don't point blame like Romo.  Dallas will be in the toilet til 2020 Romo will still be playing at 40 stinking up the joint.

I'm one of the few people who saw it live.   Kerrigan was NOT better technically if you saw it live in the arena.  Her skating was very, very slow, her spins were slow, & were rehearsed.  Her spirals & jumps were really slow & small in comparison to Oksana.  I expected to see super massive jumps from  Bonaly & Harding but I was disappointed seeing them live. Bonaly's jumps were small too. After the technical program the French federation on behalf of an angry Bonaly filed a protest against Oksana for 2nd place. It failed too.  At the 1994 Euros when Bonaly won she held up the medal spitefully mouthing insults at Baiul.  Oksana  jumped with power like a man--unlike Surya who was so technically overrated!  Baiul also had light landings.  I don't care about youtube videos. I saw it in real time. Technically Nancy wasn't better & some of the judges agreed too.  Oksana's jumps were electric. Sports writer Tony  Kornheiser compared Oksana's jumps to launching missiles.  The rules at the time gave bonus credit for jump height.  Most people don't know that Kerrigan through the USFSA (her skating federation) filed a protest against Oksana's gold medal victory.  The case was reviewed twice by the IOC. It found no wrongdoing in Oksana's victory.  The ISU & the IOC would not award the 1994 gold medal to Kerrigan nor would the IOC award 2 gold medals.  The judging was ruled fair. & the matter closed.   Oksana was the best and she overcame such nastiness, jealousy & unsportsmanlike conduct from her peers.  The right skater was crowned.

American skating was working to destroy Oksana's pro career.  They wanted to "run her out of America."  Hence all the constant references to her car crash &  "come backs" when she was the biggest name in pro skating.  She was labeled an alcoholic by the media. Despite that there's no proof of it.  A judge ordered her to "alcohol education"  to have all the charges cleared.  Its very different from alcohol rehab.  But rather than complying with the judge her management team ordered Oksana to continue touring.  Oksana while on tour requested to attend alcohol education but Tom Collins the skating tour owner suggested she attend alcohol rehab.  With a poor command of English a mix up may have occurred Oksana was granted permission to leave the tour at the request of Collins who likely didn't distinguish "alcohol education" vs. " alcohol rehab".   Oprah & the media begin widely proclaiming Oksana to be an alcoholic w/o sufficient proof.  No proof at all.  Oksana's objections were brushed aside. Yes her blood level was over the legal limit but the amount wasn't excessive as the media made it seem. In other states it wouldn't be considered legally drunk. There's no way of knowing if her driving was impaired by the alcohol or by the drunken, agitated passenger.  Oksana could've been acting as the designated driver for the drunken gay man.  Her passenger whose alcohol blood level was really high.   Its highly unusual for an alcoholic in the public eye to never have even one relapse in 18 years.  The cop had no proof Oksana was drunk he took a guess.  The crash could've been caused by the gay man fighting her inside the car. A drunken gay man who was a friend of Viktor Petrenko admitted to trying to drive the car.  Yet the media reported it as if Baiul & Zakarian were lovers--wrong!  She went through a lot good on her for coming through.

I forgot to add Oksana's .168 alcohol blood  content level  amounted to less than a teaspoon!  It was well under the legal limit of .10   The media LIED about it being over the legal limit.  Talk about a media rush to judgment!  Connecticut has zero-tolerance towards underage drinking of which Oksana @ age 20 WAS guilty.   The FACT that Oksana had ANY trace of alcohol in her blood stream while being UNDERAGE IS what made her guilty.  She would've likely passed a breathalyzer test that night had she not been unconscious.  Yet she was tried, sentenced & crucified in the media as a skid row alcoholic.  This was concocted to deliberately DESTROY her  reputation.  Millions of high school & college underage youth go to parties, after sports events & @ spring break drinking beers & other forms of alcohol until they're falling down drunk.  Yet, they aren't publicly labeled as alcoholics.  I won't join in the hypocrisy.   Photos of a person partying or drinking don't prove they're an alcoholic.   As I said there's no proof.  But then the media didn't have to prove its case.

Artistically in all of her programs Oksana Baiul's "artistic presentation" was better than Nancy Kerrigan's by far more than one tenth of a point.  The girl deserved 6.0 for her complex artistry.  Artistically, there's never been anyone like her since & perhaps there never will.  Oksana's genius was robbed.  The girl was far more precise, polished, flexible & musical than anyone else including Kwan the 6.0 queen.  Baiul's presentation stands alone--bar none.  Its stood the test of time. Her skating transports you to another world!

Wow!  The claws were out even then.  The 3lutz jump combo was definitely NOT a two-footed landing.  Because the landing foot & the free leg continue gliding out of the jump as can be seen in the slow motion shot.  THIS is the distinction between a "touchdown" vs. a "two-footed jump."  If the jump had been truly two-footed then both skating feet would have come to a complete stop on the ice right after the jump.  They manipulate the audiences rather than educate them about the sport & its rules.  A reason why figureskating couldn't hold the big audiences Baiul captured.  The hate level directed towards the great champions & the gifted in the sport is appalling & disgusting.  Shameful.

Wonderful spins at the end.  Why does she do Carmen?  She lacks the maturity of expession to present the sensuality of the character so its better to just leave it alone.  Why does every skater do it?  I've grown really tired of "Swan Lake" swans flapping & flying along with Carmens dying.  I would love to see a program skated to truly beautiful music like "Waltz of the flowers or, the Waltz from Swan Lake, Waltz of the Sleeping Beauty," Voices of Spring," "Pachabel Canon D" the theme from "Fanny" & "I have to Tell You" also from Fanny, The Blue Danube, The Skater's Waltz" La Valse" "Ave Maria" Der Fledermaus"  Why can't they skate to Irving Berlin, Cole Porter, Gershwin, Lerner & Lowe, Rogers & Hammerstein or Lloyd Weber?  Did I mention folk songs too?  These skaters are musically limited it seems.
