Ed Snider, founder of the NHL Philadelphia Flyers, Passes 83 years old.

Ed Snider brought the first professional championship to Philadelphia.  I walked the parade route in 1974 down Broad Street with my cousin Marjorie.  I believe it started the tradition of a parade after a championship in all professional sports.

It has been reported that Mr. Snider was battling cancer.

May you rest in peace.

Fralinger String Band waits to enter the warehouse that was engulfed in a four alarm fire at 2nd and Wharton, Philadelphia, PA. People are extending their help as the Mummers Parade is on New Years Day, 2013.

Thomas D’Amore, 24, the captain said,

Fralinger will never back down from a challenge. Unfortunately, this is the first year we’ve rented this spot. The thing that hurts the most was that this is a hobby for the guys who are 9-to-5 blue-collar, so what was lost was all their free time they put in.”

Steve Coper, chairman and business manager of Fralinger replied,

It’s all of our props for New Year’s Day, most of which have been completed. So, if it’s a total loss, it’s very devastating,”

J.C. Watts to run for Republican National Committee Chairman?  Watts is a former Oklahoma conservative who served in the House from 1994-2002.

Watts said,

My concern right now, and I don’t say this necessarily as a candidate [for RNC chairman], my concern is that as a Republican, every single Republican in America ought to be concerned about what has happened in 2008 and 2012. In this business, if you’re not growing, you’re dying.”

Before being a politician Watts was a professional quarterback in the Canadian Football League.  J.C.Watts played for the Ottawa Rough Riders in the 1981 Grey Cup.

Is Obama forcing gay marriage in the USA? Obama already did it in the military with the repeal of DADT.

Mr. Bauer, who is the chairman of Campaign for American Values stated,

There are plenty of states that have voted overwhelmingly to keep marriage as the normal definition of the word and, yet, in those same states, either it’s tied in the presidential race or, in some cases, Obama has a couple point lead. So, it just makes sense to me to remind voters that this is a huge issue and they should take it into consideration in determining how to vote.”

I think there are plenty of swing voters and even members of the normal Democratic coalition; black Americans, Hispanic Americans and so forth who don’t want marriage redefined. So, I think the ad is an appropriate ad and one that I think could actually move significant numbers of votes.”

I don’t make a Bible argument in the ad, nor have I made a bible argument in the public space. My argument is simple, which is, that for several thousand years in Western civilization, marriage has been the union of one man and one woman. Research is overwhelming that children need mothers and fathers,” Mr. Bauer said. “If one is going to change the definition of marriage to be, quote, ‘same sex,’ then there is absolutely no valid argument constitutionally or rhetorically you can make against multiple people getting married. These are radical social changes.”
