COVID19 is yet again another hard-earned lesson in who we are, who we should avoid, and who we could be if only the stain of political bias had not infected so many souls. Where once there were smart, clear-headed, rational individuals relying on common sense, there now stand, sit for the most part as they bang out laughable commentary on social media, those who we must fear are beyond saving. Certainly, they should be beyond our desire to change.
Let us then swing forward to the present, where athletes of all manner, all sexes, every race and creed, are speaking out over the systemic racism that existed in the days of Ted Williams, and have never truly receded one iota. They are using their forums, ones they have worked for, to seek positive change in America.
What Ocasio-Cortez said in those few minutes will indeed resonate for years. How others use the media will often disappear and dissipate into the mists of history. A history that neither needs nor demands such useless conversation. Ted Yoho has earned all scorn that comes his way from such an incident. Ocasio-Cortez has earned a "bravo" for incorporating patience, wisdom, and a quite yet powerful voice.
Florence, or "Flory" as she was called by her husband of so many decades, was my Granny. My "sainted" Granny, as I like to refer to her. A woman who loved me and taught me so very much, seeking to leave me with a few words of wisdom when she could. "People will judge you by the way you speak". "People will know you by the company you keep". "Make sure to zip your snow suit all the way to your neck so you stay nice and warm".
"Be part of the solution, instead being part of the problem". We've all heard the phrase. To most, it's just a cliche. To others, at least in our current world, it seems to have become something this side of an insult. However, there are those of us, a very [...]
Democrats, you won't change any Republican minds at the moment. Same goes for Republicans tossing bombs at the other side. Leave this idiocy regarding who is correct and who is wrong on hydrochloroquine, (a perfect "look over here" trump misdirection play), as fodder for another day. It's just not worth the energy expenditure.
Aided and abetted by another human smegma stain on the population, Sean Hannity, Bill O'Reilly opined that the majority of those who have passed on were likely to die anyway.
Reuters reports indicate they got the back of Trump's hand. It was a month before the White House acted after being told they had to act immediately. Had Trump actually taken action when he was told to, when he was warned to, there is a chance that "Patient Zero" in the US would never have landed in Washington State.
We are well past time to boycott anything and everything connected with the despicable sexist, insulting and lowbrow idiocy that is "Barstool Sports". We are also well past time for any reputable organization, in this case SiriusXM, to cut all ties with an organization that has women fearful of being sexually assaulted. Dave [...]
Having been a sportscaster for many years, I've come across my share of athletes, coaches, front office types, owners and everything on down to the people who sweep the ice and mop the floors who personify grace and dignity.
