In the last year, Barack Obama has learned a thing or two about running for president, and Reggie Love has learned a thing or two about Barack Obama.
Mr. Love now knows that when it comes to food, Senator Obama “eats pretty much anything, from chicken wings and barbecue and ribs to grilled fish and steamed broccoli.” But when he is campaigning in a small town with limited options, a cheeseburger is always a good bet. (“Cheddar is the cheese of choice,” Mr. Love added.)

Have you ever wondered what all those extra SUVs are in the Presidential or VIP motorcades? You know, the ones with severely tinted windows. The SUV’s that no one gets in or out. Maybe they are Unmarked ‘black helicopters’ on four wheels…
Well, wonder no more. They have a 6 barreled 7.62 mm mini gun. They Fire over 4,000 rounds per minute The wipers need to be run to remove Spent casings when the weapon is firing.
This video is from the company that makes this happen. The vehicle is also armor plated.
New information is slowly leaking out about some of the issues that were a part of the disastrous 2008 season of the Dallas Cowboys. The beat reporter for the Dallas Morning News’ Calvin Watkins is reporting today that the Cowboys were often late for meetings and team travel charters for games. And it appears that if a player were late for events, they had their hands slapped, but just barely.
Multiple sources close to the team paint a picture of turmoil inside the locker room far greater than originally thought, and the organization is determined to solve the problems. Sources say there were many issues this season that call into question team discipline, commitment and accountability.
The team charter left late for road games five times this season because players were late to the airport according to three sources. The total represented more than half of the eight regular season away games. Sources declined to name the late players. The Philadelphia trip was delayed by more than an hour.
Phillips may not be completely to blame for the smaller fines. A source said Phillips asked Jones to raise the fine total but was rebuffed by the owner.
Jones acknowledged some players are late for meetings. However, he said sometimes a player is late because he has to meet his media responsibilities or had a legitimate excuse.
So there you have it. The Cowboys are a team of misfits and with very little leadership making them accountable for being goof-offs. There are so many people that believe changing coaches is the only answer to these problems with the Cowboys, but I think when it’s all said and done, Jerry Jones could be the biggest reason for the problems here that he created. I’m pretty sure word on the street got to opposing teams if you just punch em in the mouth, the Cowboys would fold due to their spoiled baby appearence. The hits just keep on coming with this team don’t they?
