Clash of Champions

Clash of Champions

 

 

Definitely the greatest fight that Muhammad Ali ever lost which also happened to be the greatest event he ever lost. Perhaps the biggest sports event at least up to that point in 1971 that had more of a Super Bowl atmosphere rather than a championship fight atmosphere. With all of the people who saw it on TV or close-circuit or were at the fight. The fact that non boxing fans or at least people who weren’t big boxing fans before this fight. Who got into this fight, watched this fight and followed boxing especially the heavyweight division after this fight. Of course the two fighters involved the top two heavyweights at least of the 1960s and early to. Middle 1970s in the challenger Muhammad Ali whose the top heavyweight of the 1970s. And in my opinion and many others who know more about boxing than me the top heavyweight of all time. Against the best heavyweight boxer at least to this point and would remain so after beating Muhammad Ali. At this Super Bowl of boxing event until he lost the fight to George Foreman.

The question in the House Republican Conference right now is whose in charge. The father meaning Speaking John Boehner or some of his little children the Tea Party Caucus. And right now it looks like the Boehner little children are in charge. And unless Speaker Boehner takes charge of his children, the Federal Government will shutdown next week.

Because Democrats will never agree to defund or repeal the Affordable Care Act just to do what the Federal Government is supposed to do every year that every other organization in the country has to do. Which is pass an annual budget and pay their debts. The Tea Party Caucus which seems to be running the House Republican Conference right now, has decided to try a last stand to repeal the Affordable Care Act. And put the rest of government at risk as a result.

Left vs Right


I actually agree with Republicans here when it comes to the debt ceiling that we should pay for the increase in it. But House Republicans are going to have to compromise again on it like they did in 2011. To get anything done and I agree with them here because our debt is too high and we simply can’t keep pushing it off. Just because economic growth is so low and unemployment is relatively still high. That our fiscal problems are going to have to be addressed sooner rather than later while we still can control our own fiscal policy. Rather than having to make drastic policies to avoid even worst things from happening in the future. You pay for the debt ceiling increase something we did in the 1990s and 1980s in a responsible way. You are telling Wall Street and world markets that America is serious about its economy and fiscal situation. And we are going to do what we need to do to get it under control and finally fix these problems.

So the compromise between the White House and Democratic Senate with House Republicans. On funding the Federal Government and raising the debt ceiling. Is that House Republicans do not get a defunding of the Affordable Care Act. The debt ceiling is raised in a strategic way where everyone that can afford to get cut that doesn’t hurt the economy. Gets cut not across the board but everywhere in the federal budget where we can afford to and should save. Tax, entitlement and defense policy reform great places to start along with agriculture. Everybody gives a lot and gets a lot and both sided can move on to other issues.

Republicans would have credibility on healthcare meaning the Affordable Care Act or ObamaCare. If they had their own healthcare reform plan to reform a healthcare system that they admitted like Newt Gingrich. Needed to be reformed before the ACA was passed by Congress in 2010. Instead what they are essentially saying is that we should repeal the ACA and go back to the status-quo. When it came to healthcare a system that most of the country including the Republican Party said didn’t work very well. With people being denied health insurance because they needed it or had a pre-existing-condition. Or run up healthcare bills pass a certain cap even if they were still able to pay for their health insurance. Or being forced to pay for others healthcare because people could get their own healthcare at the. Emergency room even if it wasn’t an emergency which would be free for them but where anyone else with. Health insurance has to pay for someone else’s healthcare because they aren’t responsible enough to. Pay for their own health insurance.

Sean McDonough “Touch them all Joe, you’ll never hit a bigger home run!” Referring to Blue Jays outfielder Joe Carter who hit the winning walk off home run in Game 6 to clinch the 1993 World Series for the Toronto Blue Jays. Giving them back to back championships.That is what game 6 of this World Series was all about. The Phillies playing for their season and just for the opportunity to get to game 7 to have another opportunity to win the 1993 World Series. The Blues Jays, playing to defend their 1993 MLB World Series Championship. And win this World Series so they don’t have to play a game 7 and risk losing this World Series. And that is what made this game so great. Because the Phillies had to win it and did their best to do so.
