Well, football is already in the air…and I am talking about American football. I can smell the bourbon. Will the Alabama Crimson Tide continue to dominate the American collegiate football scene or will a Georgia or Clemson slip up on Saban’s Red Elephants? Will Aaron, Gurley, Marshall, and gang have enough for the UGA Dawgs to finally win another National Championship. They came so, so very close in pulling the big upset over Alabama in last year’s SEC Championship Game! In fact, many pundits say they UGA had the better team, especially with that defense led by two First Round linebackers, Jarvis Jones and Alec Ogletree.
Scandals, scandals, scandals. Scandals are in the air in Washington, D. C. Rarely do Presidential second terms turn out too good, and this is certainly true with President Barack Obama’s second term in office. Benghazigate, IRSgate, APgate, NSAgate, etc. Wait until the implementation of Obamacare. This will be a complete mess, if it gets that far. My guess is that the mid-term elections in 2014 will sweep many, many Republicans into office. But, can the Republicans take the White House? Don’t count out Texas’s Rick Perry…and don’t forget about Jeb Bush and his Colombian wife. The Republicans have to be able to do something about their deficiency in attracting the Hispanic vote. Bush-Rubio? No, both are from Florida. Rubio-Rice. Hmm. This could be interesting.
The Brazilian real has been slipping versus the American dollar. This is good for Americans spending money in Brazil or sending money southward. Methinks that after the World Cup and the Olympics that the Brazilian real will slip markedly. But, the country and its people will remain just as lovely as ever!
