Politics and Baseball

Here's an article that caught my eye on Deadspin.

According to an article on this website called "The Daily Caller", people who lean towards the conservative end of the political spectrum, love baseball!

The article states that conservative-leaning individuals, particularly elite conservatives like Charlie Krauthammer and George Will, tend to like baseball more that other American sports because it's merit-based and the rules haven't changed all that much in the 100+ years that baseball has existed in this great country.

But that's not to say that ALL baseball fans are conservative! Like all sports, baseball's fans share a variety of political beliefs, but individuals political views are but a minute trifle in the greater scheme of things. What unites all baseball fans is the fact that we go to baseball games because, well, it's fun! It's a great way to spend the afternoon with friends and family, away from the crazy hustle-bustle of the world. We go to baseball games to GET AWAY FROM politics, and when the two cross paths, the result is often an ugly mess.

With that in mind, have a great Labor Day weekend everyone!

Undoubtedly, you should examine all of the available options for you so that you can be on your road to a better future. In the most shocking part of the episode, Kevin confesses to having an affair of his own accord, just when we thought he knew about Jackie and his best bud Eddie. I have always had problems finding a good, reliable nursing bra that fit me well. The impact on Nursing needs to be considered and how patient care could improve from what you now know about Autism Spectrum Disorders.
