The same asswipes criticizing President Biden now

are the same ones who said "You should support the President in everything he does" when Jr invaded Iraq.

Every time they open their collective mouths, hypocritical shit flows out.

I wanted to throw something at the tv screen this morning because Seth Greenberg

was flaunting his "white privilege" and his "get off my lawn" mentality all in the same breath. Makes me want to SCREAM!!!!!!!!!!

For reference, he sees NO problem with a white coach GRABBING an AA coach after a basketball game and NOT allowing him to leave the court without listening to HIM. This attitude makes me want to
And then to follow that with "everyone should be required to shake hands after the game" bullshit. Give me a fucking break, you old white MF'er.

Rant over.

I am changing

A short while after it aired, I began watching Deadwood. I LOVE the series. It is one of the best acted and written series that I've ever seen. That viewpoint has not wavered.
The first time I viewed it, I was uncomfortable with "how" human beings were treated by those in power. I was disturbed with how little a human life was worth. This hasn't changed.
What HAS changed is that I can no longer watch Deadwood. I cannot watch while women are being abused. I cannot watch while people are being killed for NO reason at all. I can no longer watch while lives are being changed forever for money.

Maybe I have evolved or it could be that I am just less tolerant. I do not know for sure.

I really LOATHE stupid people.

I was listening to Dan Patrick this morning and he had Michelle Tafoya as a guest. She told him about her departure from sports and entrance into the political scene. She said this was partially because she was the child of "Dreamers" and that she wanted to get the message out that everyone should have the same chances that she had growing up.
So, I'm thinking, great, she is going to campaign for the Democratic governor of Minnesota. NOOOOOOOOOOOO, this is what I found when I got home and did a search.

Tafoya will announce Monday that she will be the co-chair of a political campaign for businessman and Army veteran Kendall Qualls, who announced in January that he is running as a Republican candidate for governor in Minnesota.

I hate stupid people and I hate hypocrites. Tafoya seems to be both.

Mardi Gras--STILL racially divided

While this article is 5 years old, it still holds true today. Mardi Gras is one of the more racially divided events still held in America.

The glitter and mayhem of Mardi Gras in Mobile, Ala., cannot disguise the fact that some Carnival parades are still racially segregated, with krewe members of a single ethnicity, AL.com reports. Yet interviews with Carnival and city officials showed that most do not believe the problem needs to be addressed, as AL.com reports.

Leaders of both the historically black and historically white Carnival associations told AL.com that the Carnival "promotes inclusion, rather than exclusion." But that is not the reality on the ground, AL.com reports, as evidenced by the race of riders, a 2004 event at a Carnival ball, or a 2008 documentary that raised the question: "Could Jim Crow still hold sway in Alabama's venerable port city?"

Topical pet peeve: It's NOT the Cincinnati BANGLES.

It's the Cincinnati B"e"ngals. There, I feel better now.

I stand with Brian Flores

I do not believe ANY of the push back from the NFL, the Dolphins, Giants or the Denver Broncos. IMO, they are all lying to cover their asses. Unfortunately for Mr. Flores, they are well funded and will stick together like super glue on your fingers.

It is telling that a mere two hours after the allegations, the NFL came back and with a "completely unfounded" statement. How do you know they are untrue if you haven't investigated the claims?
