In a Slate interview, San Francisco 49ers safety Eric Reid said he’s been told the National Football League is planning to allow owners to shift money pledged to other charitable campaigns like breast cancer and Salute the Troops to the players’ seven-year, $89 million program to fund social justice causes. It’s a cowardly attempt by NFL owners to shut up ungrateful players.

Condem-Nation: Today’s Race to Denounce

3:29 AM 12/01/2017

When news breaks of a sexual allegation or an event like the violence in Charlottesville, VA, there’s a breathless race -- before any due process or facts are vetted -- to denounce the event.

My Colonoscopy: Going Boldly Where No Man Has Gone

2:08 PM 11/14/2017

One in three folks over fifty who need a colonoscopy fail to have one. That's nuts. It's easier than it's ever been, and not getting this thing done might kill you. So schedule one now, before Obamacare implodes further and you can only see your doctor in a few years if you sign up to caddy on Saturday at your local country club.

Mueller Is Weaponizing Criminal Law For Political Gain

11:18 AM 10/31/2017

As most assumed, lobbyist and fired Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort was indicted by Mueller’s Special Counsel investigation. This indictment had nothing to do with Trump's campaign. The investigation into Russian collusion by Trump has been an expensive, media-encouraged attempt to find some major smoking gun. So far, this  “scandal” hasn’t lived up to its hype; it’s the Apple Watch of investigations.

Dems Are Playing Russian Roulette With Investigations

11:17 AM 10/24/2017

Members of the Obama Administration may still have to testify after reports surfaced that Senators told Obama of Russian meddling in 2016 -- and he did nothing. Thinking Hillary was going to win big, he didn’t want to "taint" her election.

Trump Might Lead To “Cafeteria Politics”

11:44 AM 10/17/2017

You’d think Trump would be happy when his presumably favorite team, the  Syracuse Orangemen, beat #1 Clemson last week. Instead he picks a name-calling Twitter fight with our great Senator Bob Corker as if he were Rosie O’Donnell.

“It’s Like, Literally, Like, Amazing”… Ughh.

11:47 AM 09/19/2017

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."

Saving Robert Lee

4:44 PM 08/29/2017

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.

Trump Snarls Back At Lil’ Kim: ‘Locked And Loaded’

10:32 AM 08/15/2017

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.

Trump Administration Ends Government Shakedown Practices

10:17 AM 08/08/2017

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.

How To Lose A Man In Ten Days

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.
