No Fun League successfully erasing Colin Kaepernick

 

The Wall Street Journal reports the National Football League is employing Soviet-era tactics in whitewashing any memory of Colin Kaepernick during its Sewer Bowl week. (Sewer is not a typo.)

“They’re trying to erase him,” said New York Giants safety Michael Thomas, a vice president with the NFL Players Association. “Even if you’re not going to talk about the controversial part, at least talk about what he did on the field—which was electrifying.”

The Atlantic: Republicans leaders are weak, ethically empty vessels

The Atlantic story is worth your attention.

Trump’s takeover of the GOP has happened not because he is widely loved or admired by Republican lawmakers but because he is feared; not because most of the people in the Republican Senate Conference aspire to be like him, but because they are too timid to challenge him.

Left unstated: Those around Hitler, Stalin Castro, Pot, Kim, Mao were too timid to challenge them. And look at what happened.

 

(ICYMI) Billings Gazette: Montana politician says Constitution allows for shooting of socialists

The Billings Gazette introduces us to a dangerous moron. 

His name is Rodney Garcia, and he’s a state representative in Montana.

Asked to clarify if he thought it was fair to shoot or jail a socialist, including those who live in Montana, Garcia said yes.

“They’re enemies of the free state,” Garcia said. “What do we do with our enemies in war? In Vietnam, (Afghanistan), all those. What did we do?”

Asked if that was an appropriate response to his opponent from the last election cycle, Garcia said “according to the Constitution, I’m telling you.”

No cross too heavy

No cross too heavy

Or so we are told

Too often that’s baloney

Forgive being so bold

One day without sickness

One day without pain

That never happens

But carry on, sustain!

Tell that too the person

Who can only stand by

When those they love

Ache and cry

A pill or three

Provide temporary relief

But the person not right

Still struggles with belief

Escape to the skies?

Don’t be insane

The brain and the heart

Would be on the plane

No cure it seems

This will not go away

So die a bit more inside

Again today
