In the history of mankind, many republics have risen, have flourished for a less or greater time, and then have fallen because their citizens lost the power of governing themselves and thereby of governing their state. TR


Amid Myriad Crises, Obama to Meet with 1972 Miami Dolphins

Nothing is more valuable than a president’s time, but that won’t stop President Obama from meeting next week, for no apparent reason, with the 1972 Miami Dolphins.

From the White House:

On Tuesday, August 20, the President will welcome the undefeated 1972 Super Bowl Champion Miami Dolphins to the White House for the first White House ceremony honoring their historic season.

The Dolphins were the only NFL football team in history to complete an undefeated season, including a Super Bowl VII victory over the Washington Redskins. But other than that it would amuse the president and his aides, it’s unclear why they would be invited to the White House 40 years later.

While Obama takes time out of his day to live out the aging sports fan’s dream of standing in the same room with Bob Griese, Larry Csonka, Nick Buoniconti, Mercury Morris and Don Shula, the economy will remain stuck in low gear, the Middle East will still be in flames, and al Qaeda will continue its revival.

Presidential meetings with recently crowned champion sports teams are a tradition and one of a president’s signatures wastes of time. Obama has only expanded the practice, extending it to teams from previous eras and even Division III college teams. He met last month with the 1963 Loyola University of Chicago Ramblers championship basketball team.

Meanwhile, the White House remains closed to average Americans due to the sequester.

As a body shop owner, I’ve found there are a couple resources for designing your own floor plan. With all the hustle and bustle of daily life, sometimes it can seem almost impossible to get the body and mind kicked into low gear at the end of the day so we can get to sleep.
