President Obama may well view this column by the former Minnesota Vikings quarterback as proof-positive that the head injuries suffered by football players have totally clouded their thought process and something must be done before it’s too late:

Pro golfer Phil Mickelson has gotten a lot of flak for his recent comments about threatening to make “drastic changes” in his life due to state and federal tax increases. Never mind that he later backed off, saying he should have kept his thoughts to himself and apologized to those he “upset or insulted.”

Mickelson was telling the truth. If there’s anything that should upset or insult Americans, it’s just how much of their money the government takes. Mickelson estimates that more than 60% of his earnings are snatched in federal and state taxes (he lives in California). Should a private citizen, no matter how successful, really owe the government more than half of what he or she makes? Intuitively, this cannot make sense to anyone who believes in the principles of hard work and personal responsibility.

Tarkenton obviously suffered too many blows to the head during his playing days. Don’t worry — Congress will be on it very soon. Hold tight, Fran, help is on the way!

Many Democrats believe trauma caused by repeated blows to the head may have caused Fran Tarkenton to suffer delusions of over-taxation

    Fran sounds "sound of mind" to me. Perhaps any bumps to the bean he took knocked good sense into him. He didn`t say anything untrue !

    I am disappointed in Phil Mickelson for apologizing for speaking his mind and the way he phrased his complaint. Instead of "the gov. takes 62% of my income", perhaps it would have hit home more firmly if he had stated, "The gov. allows me to keep only 38% of what I earn" !

    Sounds like Fran's gonna have a drone or two headed his way. You know just to "keep an eye on him".

    When one of the government "people" is in the other room with your family, it has a profound effect on your thoughts and actions.

    Fear the gov. that fears your truth !

    Hey, Fran. Isn't Al Franken up for re-election in 2014?
    Just saying'.

    Now THERE`s an idea; the country needs to be rid of the un-funny clown from MN. Fran might be a good replacement and certainly a better servant !

    O/T: Dem. Rep. John "Read the Bill" Conyers, held prisoner by the PC culture, now wants everyone to refrain from using the term "Illegal Immigrants". "Today they are Citizens 'Out of Status'."

    Excuse me, but they are Illegal Aliens. THAT is their status !

    Tarkenton is a stand up guy.

    Too bad he never won the ring.
