Let's Sell Naming Rights to Hurricanes




You've seen it on TV. The announcer tells you about the activity in ATT stadium, or FedExField, Nissan Stadium, etc. Why don't we start selling the naming rights to tropical storms and hurricanes? The victims of these storms often need millions of dollars to get back on their feet. Why not start a fund to do just that?

People were glued to their TV and radios for the latest news on Harvey and Irma. Newspaper stories cover the events from the time they are out to sea until after they hit land. The names are on everyone's lips, that's gotta be worth something!

"Hurricane Acura is a category four, ,expected to hit landfall in three days" 
"Tropical storm BMW is off the coast of Puerto Rico" 
"Hurricane CNN is being downgraded to a tropical depression..."

Obviously you would charge more for a hurricane than a tropical storm, because it gets more exposure. Corporate naming eliminates complaints about sexism and cultural preferences of name selection.

Some companies may not want their company to be associated with such destructive forces. So allow the naming company to slap their logo on relief packages funded by the naming funds, tp get some positive reinforcement for their buck. It could work! Stranger things have happened!

Medal of Honor

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Senior Chief Special Warfare Operator Edward Carl Byers Jr.


Citation:

For conspicuous gallantry and intrepidity at the risk of his life above and beyond the call of duty as a Hostage Rescue Force Team Member in Afghanistan in support of Operation ENDURING FREEDOM from 8 to 9 December 2012. As the rescue force approached the target building, an enemy sentry detected them and darted inside to alert his fellow captors. The sentry quickly reemerged, and the lead assaulter attempted to neutralize him. Chief Byers with his team sprinted to the door of the target building.

As the primary breacher, Chief Byers stood in the doorway fully exposed to enemy fire while ripping down six layers of heavy blankets fastened to the inside ceiling and walls to clear a path for the rescue force. The first assaulter pushed his way through the blankets, and was mortally wounded by enemy small arms fire from within. Chief Byers, completely aware of the imminent threat, fearlessly rushed into the room and engaged an enemy guard aiming an AK-47 at him. He then tackled another adult male who had darted towards the corner of the room.
During the ensuing hand-to-hand struggle, Chief Byers confirmed the man was not the hostage and engaged him. As other rescue team members called out to the hostage, Chief Byers heard a voice respond in English and raced toward it. He jumped atop the American hostage and shielded him from the high volume of fire within the small room. While covering the hostage with his body, Chief Byers immobilized another guard with his bare hands, and restrained the guard until a teammate could eliminate him.

His bold and decisive actions under fire saved the lives of the hostage and several of his teammates. By his undaunted courage, intrepid fighting spirit, and unwavering devotion to duty in the face of near certain death, Chief Petty Officer Byers reflected great credit upon himself and upheld the highest traditions of the United States Naval Service.


Senior Chief Byers: We humbly salute you and thank you for your service.

Hat tip Home of Heroes

There are seventy five living MoH recipients today. Their names and their stories should not be forgotten. My mission is to honor one of those heroes here each week, and salute them for their courage and sacrifice. In the words of John Fitzgerald Kennedy:

“A nation reveals itself not only by the men it produces, but also by the men it honors; the men it remembers.”

The Ghost of Trayvon Martin Takes a Knee

Halloween is approaching and the stores are filling with candy, skeletons, and not a few ghosts. One specter once again raising its ugly head, is the ghost of Trayvon Martin.
In addition to the Take a Knee controversy, or complementary to it, four NFL players have submitted a ten page memo...manifesto, if you will, to Roger Goodell, NFL Commissioner. to address
the silence following our individual and collective demonstrations around the national anthem to raise awareness to racial inequality and issues surrounding criminal justice reform has been met with inconsistencies in press coverage and perceived lack of support.
(emphasis mine)"The silence". That means, we not only want to disrespect the flag, the anthem and the US, but we want you to endorse us for doing so. "Criminal justice reform"?  Are they suggesting better communication between NFL players and their parole officers? There most certainly is racial inequality in the NFL. The percentage of black players far surpasses the percentage of blacks in the general population. Is that what they're talking about??

But, let's examine the basis for their call for a month dedicated to their particular vision of social justice awareness..."like breast cancer"! Oh, and pony up some dough to make this kabuki theater work.
You have to admire the chutzpah of a bunch of millionaires going hat in hand to NFL management to finance those things they feel deeply about, just not deeply enough to pay for it out of their own pockets.
But, what sparked the outrage?
Since 2016, police have shot over 300 men and women in this country. Some of the names and stories are familiar...Trayvon Martin...
Uh, excuse me, but Trayvon wasn't shot by a police officer, despite how often his ghost pops up in conversations about Black Lives Mattering.

We have some newer statistics, via the Washington Post:
721 fatal police shootings in U S so far in 2017
32 unarmed - 4.4%
9 unarmed black men - 1.2%
For the math impaired (and you liberals know who you are), 721 is greater than 300.  As to the myth that police regular shoot unarmed black men, it appears that sightly over 1% of fatal police shootings involve unarmed black men, and unarmed men other than black, are shot three times as often.

But the memo goes on to detail many "reforms" they want to see in many of arrests and bail. Could they have a vested interest in the matter? According to NFLarrest.com, an NFL player is arrested on an average of every seven days. Granted this is lower than the US arrest rate for men of their demographic, but still quite a lot. Enough to make me wonder just how altruistic this "movement" is. "DUI's" seem to be most prevalent, and if they occurred at at once, NFL players with DUIs could fill a small stadium all by themselves!

But back to Trayvon, and the Left's fixation on him. You remember Trayvon?? Twelve year old choir boy with a twinkle in his eye? Well, somewhere between the cherubic twelve year old and the thuggish, 5'11" seventeen year old, something went terribly wrong.
In October 2011, after a video surveillance camera caught Martin writing graffiti on a door, MDSPD Office Darryl Dunn searched Martin’s backpack, looking for the marker he had used. Officer Dunn found 12 pieces of women’s jewelry and a man’s watch, along with a flathead screwdriver the officer described as a “burglary tool.” The jewelry and watch, which Martin claimed he had gotten from a friend he refused to name, matched a description of items stolen during the October 2011 burglary of a house... about a half-mile from the school.
Now why, you may ask , am I dredging up this young thug's sordid history? Can't we just let sleeping, er, dead dogs lie?

Apparently not. The name of Trayvon Martin, who was definitely not shot by a white cop or a black cop, or any cop at all, is repeatedly evoked at the top of the list of victimhood by Black Lives Matter types, along with the brutal bully who was shot resisting arrest, Michael Brown.

It is the modus operandi of the Left, that whenever they want to exaggerate how bad a problem is, they pad their statistics to make it look worse. The NFL players include Trayvon in their list of grievances, because if they limited themselves to actual grievances or even current grievances (Trayvon was killed in 2012), their evidence would be pretty thin.

I suspect the ghost of Travon will be with us for a long time, so long as intellectually dishonest race baiters struggle for ways to justify their left of center agendas. This includes the 'Take a Knee' crowd.

Milo Yiannopoulos at UC Berkeley

Milo Yiannopoulos put in a brief appearance at UC Berkeley on Sunday. I believe that UC officials scheduled the event for Sunday because they were really hoping the world would come to an end on Saturday. These guys can't catch a break!

It was all over and done in half an hour. There was no formal speech and little in the way of formal protest. There were no fires, no riots, no looting. In fact, you could say that the world didn't come to an end when Milo spoke at Berkeley.

However, the Leftist protesters, in keeping with their long standing respect for the planet, did manage somehow to leave their trash in the street, for people who actually can hold down a job to clean up after them. It really is a wonder that their mothers haven't kicked them out of the basement by now!

Quote du jour

If Democrats really believe that the National Instant Criminal Background Check System doesn’t interfere “in any way” with people’s constitutional rights to own a gun, doesn't it follow that the same system would not constitute an infringement on people’s right to vote? This would give Republicans a system for stopping vote fraud and Democrats a system that they have already vigorously endorsed.
