Princess Picks Jets Over Colts in AFC Championship Game on Sunday

It’s been a while since I posted predictions from the prognosticating camel of Popcorn Park Zoo, Princess, December 4th to be exact.

At the time Princess’s won- loss record stood at 7-7 and I just couldn’t take another prediction of a Giants win that evenually turned to a defeat.

Since that time however, Princess has manage to turn it around and has now amassed a 12-9 record going 5-1 since week 14. During that time she has chosen the Jets successfully 4 times.
So this week she goes back to the well and predicts a Jets win once again. Here’s what she had to say:
“Hmmmm, this is a real real tough one… You know how much I like Payton, the best QB to ever play the game….but I think the Jets have caught lightning in a bottle the last couple weeks.”

So for all Jets’s fans in the area, I hope she’s right. It really would be something to have the Jets represent the AFC in the Superbowl after a 31 year run of mediocrity.

President Obama on Health Reform: "I am not going to walk away just because it’s hard."

The White House Blog
January 22, 2010

President Obama made it clear to an enthusiastic crowd in Ohio today that he is not giving up the fight for health reform that protects consumers from insurance company abuses, lowers costs and help businesses and families around this country.

I didn’t take up this issue to boost my poll numbers or score political points – believe me, if I were, I would have picked something a lot easier than this. No, I’m trying to solve the problems that folks here in Elyria and across this country face every day. And I am not going to walk away just because it’s hard. We’re going to keep on working to get this done with Democrats, Republicans – anyone who is willing to step up. Because I am not going to watch more people get crushed by costs, or denied the care they need by insurance company bureaucrats, or partisan politics, or special interest power in Washington.

The President told the crowd that he is working closely with Congress to complete work on reform that will bring security and stability to Americans who have insurance and provide affordable options to those who don’t. After 70 years of effort, we are closer than we have ever been to achieving these goals. We will not stop now.
