When Obama makes his demands on John Boehner about a vote on a continuing resolution, he sounds like a bully. Obama says he is willing to negotiate, but there are things that are non-negotiable. So much for making sense.
The federal government is the worst example to teach our kids fiscal responsibility. Don't spend more than you have? Not a lesson found in Washington. If you need money, just make more instead of work for it? That's what we can teach our kids.
An episode of "Frontline" airs tonight on PBS dealing with the NFL concussion controversy. Former Fresno State Bulldog and NFL player Cameron Worrell joined us. He recognizes the dangers of playing football. He doesn't know if he would do it all over again, knowing what he knows now about football. If he had a son (he has two girls), he questions whether he would allow them to play.
Worrell says his body has paid the price of an NFL career, with operations on his knees and shoulders. His wife is more scared about his future than he is. He is committed to his family, but is aware of other former players who have taken their own lives.
As far as the recently settled NFL lawsuit, Worrell thinks the NFL is just skating by. The owners need to take more responsibility for the game their employees play. He tells high school kids he works with to never hit with the head, and if they suspect a concussion or other head injury, let a trainer know. It is not worth the risk.
