Ahh, behold, the power of Tebow.

From the moment he put on a Florida Gators uniform, NewsFeed has been captivated by Tim Tebow. Once he secured a Heisman trophy and two NCAA titles, we were prepared to trade several key pieces of our staff to draft him in the first round.

Unfortunately, NewsFeed failed to attain a pick in the 2010 NFL draft. After listlessly watching Tebow land with the Denver Broncos, we were forced to become the typical fanatic. We bought his jersey. We changed our underwear. We even asked for a Friar Tuck.

Once NewsFeed’s much-maligned “Will You Marry Me” signs fell through, we decided to settle for a chance to read Tebow’s new memoir, Through My Eyes. Harper Collins announced the book deal on Monday, highlighting Tebow’s unique travels as a home-schooled son of Christian missionaries. The book focuses on his five-year journey to college-football stardom and top-prospect status as a pro.

Through NewsFeed’s eyes, Tebow has yet to throw a pass in his rookie campaign, placing him among the elite memoir writers with that distinction. There is time for that chapter to be written, as the book is not slated to hit store shelves until April 2011.

Go ahead America. Continue to dig an ever deeper hole for yourself as you push Russia, Iran, Syria and then eventually China further into a corner. America is led by corrupt politicians who kowtow to the 1% who are more concerned about world wide energy resources and potential markets.


As one of the Koch brothers noted after losing a national election in the 1980s: "I had enough ... [W]e are not a nation that debates issues. We vote on candidates' personalities."


The real power lies with those that control the wealth. America is not a nation that worships God. It worships the almighty dollar.
