With all the cowardly decisions, especially the recent National Anthem enforcement and the concussions (CTE) deceptions, the real question is: Why does Roger Goodell make $44 mil a year for running the NFL, a monopoly sanctioned by Congress?
This whole kneeling by NFL players during our National Anthem, for reasons they cannot articulate, is all the rage.
Maybe I am getting old. I remember a time when TV and water were free and pornography cost money. Now I’m certainly not a Grammar-Nazi or a word-nerd, especially given the locker-room opinions I spew weekly (some would say “weakly”). But people out there really need to focus on cleaning up their language, especially as it relates to overusing three words that are dumbing down the English language: "like," "literally" and "amazing."
Full disclosure: My mom is named Irma. I know. Not a storm or a name you’d wish on anyone.
The second largest Powerball payout in history, $758 million, was won by a Massachusetts woman. She elected to receive a lump-sum payment of $480 million. Massachusetts now has its first Republican woman.
ESPN, long the MSNBC of sports, made a bizarre executive decision to remove Asian-American football announcer Robert Lee from the William & Mary vs. Virginia game. It looked like an Onion headline. But no, ESPN continues to make a left-wing joke of itself. Northern liberal elites' hatred of the South has finally spilled over to South Korea.
And then one day, for no particular reason, people were mad at statues.
Putin, Castro, et al are all multi-billionaires. North Korea’s "Dear Leader," Kim Jong-Un, and his family are billionaires too, while his people starve in obsequious servitude. Communism always works well for the ones in charge of it.
Buried in all micro-drama distractions of the Trump administration are many of the good things it has done. One of the many under-reported accomplishments occurred in June, when Attorney General Jefferson Beauregard Sessions said the DOJ would reverse one of the sleazy practices of the Obama administration: allowing prosecutors to cut deals with corporate targets to direct payment of settlements to their pet political causes.
Season One of Survivor: Trump White House has been nonstop fun. In this week’s episode: Spicer out. Reince Priebus out. Anthony Scaramucci in, then out.
“A jackass can kick a barn down, but it cannot build anything.”
Hey Texas, here’s a Prince of an idea: No matter the new bathroom laws, let’s potty like it’s 1999.
It was a nice summer day in Illinois. Kids were enjoying their summer break, diving for murder weapons in the Chicago River, when news broke that the state of Illinois had been downgraded to junk bond status.
It was a steamy Fourth of July week in Washington, so humid that CNN was sticking to its story.
“Freedom…is not an endlessly expanding list of rights -- the "right" to education, the "right" to food and housing. That's not freedom, that's dependency. Those aren't rights, those are the rations of slavery.” - P.J.O’Rourke
The bitter tone the left has taken toward the GOP, both in media and entertainment, made the shooting of Republicans practicing baseball quite predictable. Instead of debating policy differences, those on the left resort to calling their opponents "evil," and then seek to vilify, humiliate and destroy them. This is done nightly by hosts of the late-night shows.
We have doubled the nation’s debt from $10 trillion to $20 trillion in the last eight years, growing the police state. ISIS is on the march. North Korea and Iran have nukes. We have a mucked-up health care system, a sluggish economy, and the highest corporate tax and imprisonment rates of any country in the world. But now we are spending our money, time and attention on a “He said, he said” retrospective of former FBI Director James Comey’s firing.
A Pew Research Center study confirmed what most of us already knew. More Millennials (those born after 1982), around 35%, are living with their parents rather than alone or with a partner. You’ve heard of “empty nest syndrome.” We now suffer from full basement syndrome.
