RON HART: So much to be grateful for

Pretty soon the NFL will ban the shotgun formation, the run-and-gun offense, and any quarterback with a rifle arm who throws the bomb.

This is the same D.C. City Council that ordered police to set up a prostitution-free area in certain blocks surrounding the president’s inauguration ceremonies. D.C. is so corrupt that it designates particular areas of town where people have to obey the law.

I am thankful the Occupy Wall Street crowd no longer objects to capitalist holidays. After protesting outside a Colorado Wal-Mart, these anti-free enterprise activists learned they could buy a GameBoy for only $188. Couple that with legalized pot, and these guys have not left their couches in two years.

I want to thank my Stanford buddies who hosted us at the Oregon football game this year. After the win, Stanford got close to admission in the BCS, then the parents of the players made some calls, and Stanford got in.

Mayor Bloomberg ended his tiny reign of New York . He will be known for ridding the town of 16-ounce drinks, telling people what they can eat, and limiting loud music on headphones (in short, pretty much the plot of “Footloose”).

It was on Thanksgiving just a few years ago when Tiger Woods sped out of his driveway and hit a tree; 12 bimbos fell out. At the time, he was the top golfer in the world, but he has fallen off the map until recently.  I think he was in the Mistress Protection Program. He has resurfaced and is dating skier Lindsey Vonn. I just hope Tiger does not blow this one when he is invited to the Vonn home for Thanksgiving, is asked to bring his favorite side dish, and shows up with an IHOP hostess.

Let’s be thankful the stock market made record highs. Yes, Obama is an envy-driven, business-hating socialist intent on destroying capitalism, but, as with ObamaCare, he is so inept at it that Wall Street loves him.
