The Playday Campaign Gets Support from Austin Healey

Rugby superstar Austin Healey enjoyed a wonderful career for more than a decade playing both for the club and for the country. Healey is now retired and is enjoying life with his family. He is also busy giving support to the Playday campaign, the objective of which is to encourage today’s young generation to spend less time with TV and computer games and have more quality time with family and friends. In one of his interviews, Healey said that the Playday campaign is personally close to his heart. Having four daughters himself, he couldn’t help but get involved, thus showing his support for the Playday campaign. He realized that children today really need to spend outdoor playing instead of just spending most of their time on computer games or watching TV.

He also added that there are a lot of things that kids can enjoy doing outside like exercising, playing with other kids and making friends. When asked for his opinion regarding parents who prevent their kids from going and playing outside because they fear that their kids might just get hurt or whatever of that sort, he said that he understands their anxiety but he considers them as part of our everyday lives. He even shared that during his childhood days, he had his share of cuts and scratches but they did not prevent them from enjoying outdoor activities.

Stephen Colbert’s Super PAC Got the Approval of FEC

The Federal Election Commission has given Comedy Central host Stephen Colbert the go signal to set up a Political Action Committee, Super PAC. Colbert wanted the public to be aware of the latest campaign finance laws. Colbert will be enjoying a “media exemption” and will be free to discuss the said committee on his show. At the same time, if corporations or well-off individuals would like to donate to his committee, Colbert would be legally allowed to accept them.

Colbert got the idea of setting up the committee in connection to what some FOX News correspondents and some people in politics like Sarah Palin and Karl Rove are involved with. When they are being interviewed in news programs, they talk about PACs that they are involved with. According to reports also, Sarah Palin would even use the funds from PAC for personal use such as touring her family to different American landmarks.

There were cheering fans outside the hearing room. “Coordinators” even arrived to give support to the crowd and they were wearing red t-shirts with “COLBERT SUPER PAC” signs. Some Department of Homeland Security officers prevented them however from entering the hearing room. Fortunately, they were there not to provoke anything of sort and just stayed on the sidewalk.
