I FAVOR THE NEW ORLEANS SAINTS…..BECAUSE I BELIEVE IN FOLLOWING THE RULES IN ALL THE GAMES.
The Whiskey Speech
One of the craftiest orations in the history of American politics was the “Whiskey Speech,” delivered in April 1952 by a young Mississippi legislator named Noah S. “Soggy” Sweat, Jr.
The House had been debating whether to finally pop the cork on Prohibition when Sweat (later a circuit court judge and a college professor) decided to demonstrate his prowess for talking out of both sides of his mouth. The occasion was a banquet at the old King Edward Hotel in Jackson.
“My friends, I had not intended to discuss this controversial subject at this particular time. However, I want you to know that I do not shun controversy. On the contrary, I will take a stand on any issue at any time, regardless of how fraught with controversy it might be. You have asked me how I feel about whiskey. All right, here is how I feel about whiskey.
If when you say ‘whiskey’ you mean the devil’s brew, the poison scourge, the bloody monster, that defiles innocence, dethrones reason, destroys the home, creates misery and poverty, yea, literally takes the bread from the mouths of little children; if you mean the evil drink that topples the Christian man and woman from the pinnacle of righteous, gracious living into the bottomless pit of degradation and despair and shame and helplessness and hopelessness, then certainly I am against it.
But if when you say ‘whiskey’ you mean the oil of conversation, the philosophic wine, the ale that is consumed when good fellows get together, that puts a song in their hearts and laughter on their lips, and the warm glow of contentment in their eyes; if you mean Christmas cheer; if you mean the stimulating drink that puts the spring in the old gentleman’s step on a frosty, crispy morning; if you mean the drink which enables a man to magnify his joy, and his happiness, and to forget, if only for a little while, life’s great tragedies, and heartaches, and sorrows; if you mean that drink, the sale of which pours into our treasuries untold millions of dollars, which are used to provide tender care for our little crippled children, our blind, our deaf, our dumb, our pitiful aged and infirm, to build highways and hospitals and schools, then certainly I am for it.
This is my stand. I will not retreat from it. I will not compromise.”
Noah S. “Soggy” Sweat, Jr.
Americans should tell the hospitals and doctors to keep the kids and raise them. I, for sure, wouldn’t pay any bills that I didn’t approve and have a copy of.
The Editor: Can you explain the Rams-Saints scandal, LL ?
The NFL Is Crooked Cat: I sure can. View the following links and see if the Rams player hit is helmet to helmet and if he hits the Saints player before the ball gets there.
The NFL has more cameras at football games that Congresspeople have hidden in bathrooms. The NFL says that judgement calls aren’t reviewable. They make the rules and believe that Americans will be satisfied with bribed and crooked games.
The only people that can assure honest games are the professional gamblers and casinos. They aren’t going to put up with this obvious fraud. Here are some betting opportunities, if you can find one the NFL can’t fix.
Who are you going to believe the seven ( 7 ) officials or your lying eyes ?
