Be careful what you wish for

If Trump is going to deport immigrants who commit any sort of crimes, does this mean MLB, NFL, NHL and NBA really get chaperones for all their foreign born players. Because assume minor drug crimes, speeding tickets and DUIs count.

 

 

Tampa Bay Bucs WR Mike Evans sat during the national anthem to protest Trump’s election “I’m not big on politics or anything like that, but I told myself, ‘If this happens, America is not right right now.’ I said this a long time ago — when he [Donald Trump] ran, I thought it was a joke. The joke continues.”
Good that he feels the right to exercise his free speech, but just maybe Evans might have been more effective had he vocalized his feelings BEFORE people voted?

 

 

Chicago Bears WR Alshon Jeffery the latest to be suspended for violating NFL PED policy. He says he took a “recommended supplement” to battle inflammation, and it contained an ingredient on the league’s banned substance list.
Waiting for Goodell to say he’ll cut a game off the suspension of the first guy who owns up and says “Yeah, I was trying to get an edge and got caught.”

 

 

Apparent chaos and endless queues at London Heathrow Terminal 5 this last Sunday when British Airways had an “IT issue early this morning” which “was quickly resolved.” The airline added “We are sorry for the delay to our customers’ journeys.”
Right, but now try to explain to BA if an IT or indeed any issue results in you being delayed and missing a flight.

#SteveHarvey ending his talk show. Many Americans were hoping he’d tell us the election was just another Miss Universe results flub.

So now Trump says, hey, if Roe vs. Wade is overturned women can just go to another state for an abortion. Sure, I’m sure private jets are standing by. Let them eat cake with pickles and ice cream?

 

Way too young. RIP #GwenIfill,,61. She was secretly in hospice. where one can hope she died happily unaware of election results.

So it’s bad enough that Steve #Bannon is a white nationalist and an anti-Semite, but he’s also a veteran of Goldman Sachs #swampwhatswamp?

And now leaving snark aside, temporarily, for my fellow unhappy moderate and liberal friends:
Voter restriction laws – ID rules, fewer polling places, shortened early voting hours, etc, definitely cost the Democrats in this election. One thing that isn’t getting talked about is how all those things happened – Republican governors and state legislators. (Not coincidental that Ohio, Wisconsin, Michigan and Florida are governed by Republicans.)
So, if you want to work on change before the next election, start paying attention to local and state races. Now. The voting rights you save may be your own, or at least your party’s.

    With Steve Bannon in charge will Donald Trump now enter Congress to the tune of Heil To The Chief?

    I hear the signature song of Trump’s inaugural ball is going to be The Kid’s Are Alt-Right

    Yes, this is what you get when the fox guards the chicken coop, i.e. Republicans controlling traditionally Democratic states.

    As LCSB often says facetiously, “I blame Obama.”

    Yes, I do blame him for killing his party. Republicans made huge gains (which they’ve held) in the 2010 mid-term elections. I’m no political analyst, but I do have my opinions. The biggest single factor in that election was Obamacare. Forget the law’s merits or lack of same, but the Dems paid a huge political price for it. Obama did a horrendous job of selling it; in fact he didn’t really try and let the GOP win the war of words. I don’t knows if he could’ve changed votes, but it is what it is and the Dems can sit back helplessly and bitch about it.
