DeVine Law Gamecock’s oracle alter ego remains on sabbatical on Portugal’s offshore islands where he has resided since retiring from political predictions after the 2012 debacle. He refuses to engage in imagining the electoral machinations of a people that would re-hire an epic economic and national security failure. Cockstradamus also continues to leave paranoid schizophrenics to medical doctors. Yours truly remains roosted atop Stone Mountain of Georgia and together we share our plans for the new Leap Year aka the latest chance to not put a Democrat in the Oval Office.
Our number one resolution is to never apologize for the fact that Donald Trump leads GOP presidential nomination polls until the Democratic Party apologizes for ever nominating Barack Obama for president. He and his party have decimated the military; prevented all but bankers, the 1%, their cronies, and Mexican drug mules from bailing themselves out since the Housing Bust; persecuted Christians and conservatives via Lois Lerner’s IRS; appeased the Terror State of Iran that Jimmy carter created; and fundamentally transformed the only nation in the history of the world that didn’t need to be so transformed.
Number two, reject the notion that there is any silent conservative majority in the United States or even in the Republican Party.
Three, work to make sure that the most electable non-Democrat is elected president and hope that he or she has the courage to fix a few things Democrats and their enablers in the establishment GOP and wrecked, e.g. job-killing Obamacare etc.
Four, continue watching less TV, no liberal political TV I know what they are going to say before they say it), no commercials, no political arguing, and less PC ESPN non-live game programs.
Five, tip my bartenders more.
Six, remind Democrats to vote on Wednesday.
Seven, make no more resolutions until 2017.
Joint (lest Cockstradamus be further emasculated) predictions: Carolina Panthers win their first Super Bowl, Clemson wins the CFP, Lebron James leads Cleveland Cavaliers to their first NBA championship, Atlanta Braves win 60+ games, Little E wins Sprint Cup, and Ted Cruz is elected President of the United States.

The post-Vernal Equinox view of all things legal, political and sporting from Stone Mountain of Georgia, co-starring Cockstradamus from The Azores…
First, sporting antidotes to the Obama Recession at War
John Calipari, Kentucky’s junior college-transfer genius, prevailed over Ohio State upperclassmen in the defining game of the 2011 NCAA Men’s Basketball Tournament. Clearly, the Wildcats will prevail in the Final Four, but will it be Arizona or Kentucky? Cockstradamus says…Arizona. (We picked the Buckeyes three months ago, and on our bracket, to win the national championship, before this loss.)
As a card-carrying member of the dead-tree media and USC alumnus, I have tri-annually received the Fighting Gamecocks’ baseball, football and men’s basketball media guides for the past two decades. I now hold in my hands memorialized proof of the end of the 1801 Chicken Curse.
For the first time, a media guide celebrates the previous year’s National Championship won by a Fighting Gamecock’s team. South Carolina defeated UCLA in last year’s College World Series. This weekend the now 4th-ranked Gamecocks lead the current #1-ranked Florida Gators, 1-0 in a crucial early-season 3-game SEC series.
