Love is all you need

September 30, 2017

Tell me again about SEC domination in college football? #LSU #Troy

Even better, Troy ,  a 20 1/2 point underdog who pulled the upset of the Tigers, was paid $1 million to play Alabama.   The last time Troy was involved in a story this embarrassing, a horse was involved.

Who’d a thunk that of all players Stanford had to replace this year, McCaffrey might have turned out to have been the easiest.

if Bryce Love played for an SEC team the national media would be declaring the Heisman race over.

Two Texas HS football players reportedly kicked off team for protesting during national anthem Friday. Want to bet they weren’t starters?

Danny Travathan suspended 2 games for hit on Davante Adams. He is appealing. Which seems right- should have been at least 3 games.

Will Trump take credit in morning for Warriors losing their first game of NBA preseason?

Fitting that in Matt Cain’s last start the SF Giants only got him 1 run. Fitting for 2017 SFGiants bullpen blew saves. Twice.

RIP #MontyHall His funeral will be behind door number one. Or two. Or three.

Trump now attacking “poor leadership ability by the Mayor of San Juan, and others in Puerto Rico.” Jesus wept. As should all Christians.

I think I got it: People are dying in Puerto Rico just so the Fake News Media can get back at Trump #whythereisnosatire

Trump tweets from luxury golf resort w/ taxpayer paid staff while attacking Puerto Rico. Can we change “Hold my beer.” to “Hold my clubs?”

But seriously, Trump tweets-people of Puerto Rico “want everything done for them.” After breakfast at luxury club while Secret Service holds his golf clubs?

 

Has anyone suggested to Trump that Puerto Ricans aren’t paying attention to “Fake News” because they have like, no power?

Waiting for someone to say “Trumpie, you’re doing a helluva job.”

So just guessing Trump is never going to see Hamilton.

Watching Trump trash Puerto Rico and Democrats makes me shudder to think how he’d react if California had a major earthquake.

So just wondering, is there anyone in GOP who might have had any issues with Trump’s tweets about Puerto Rico they’d be willing to share?

So if Trump were President during Katrina wonder which Democrats he would have blamed for the lost of 1833 lives?

Trump takes time from victim-bashing in Puerto Rico to tout how the candidate who was losing by 8 when he endorsed him only lost by 10.

Open note to Trump fans, most people, including liberals, thought that Cambridge librarian was being an idiot about the Dr. Seuss books. So move along, and find something else to attack the Obamas over. Thank you.

Fight on or fight over?

September 29, 2017

Wow .Washington State Cougars upset USC Trojans. Now for bigger challenge, finding somewhere in Pullman to celebrate late night.

 

More outrage over players kneeling than hit by Bears LB Danny Trevathan on Packers Davante Adams? What’s wrong with this country?

 

In case there is a hurricane in Pacific, can someone please tell @realDonaldTrump in advance that Hawaii is comprised of 8 islands?

Acting DHS Sec. Elaine Duke on Puerto Rico “”I know it is really a good news story.” Imagine what Trump WH would have said during Katrina.

So will Trump also claim his Trump Golf Club went bankrupt in Puerto Rico because it was hard for golfers to get to an island?

Art expert says charcoal drawing of a nude woman may have been a sketch for Mona Lisa, Well, that would explain what she is smiling about.

NY Post columnist wrote Oprah Winfrey is Democrats’ best 2020 hope against Trump. Because having an amateur in WH has worked out so well?.

 

Will the last member of the Trump White House please remember to turn out the lights (and bill taxpayers for their “energy-saving” work?)
 –
So will Trump offer Tom Price a private jet for his trip back home?

Trump tweeted “thoughts to all those observing Yom Kippur.” Of course, he still doesn’t get this concept of “atonement.”

Florida AG Pam Bondi is objecting to OJ going to FL upon release because he’s a “danger.” As opposed to good citizens like George Zimmerman?

Open question: who do you have in pool of next Trump administration official who’ll we learn has been using private planes for flights?

As much grief as United Airlines has gotten this year maybe they could redeem reputation by dragging Tom Price, now that he has to fly commercial, off of one of their planes?

 

NY Times 9/17 – Puerto Rico “We were able to weather the storm (Irma) We’re in a position to help those in greater need.” Sad, Seriously.

 

Trump says he will decide on Federal Reserve leader w/in 2-3 weeks. But alas that private jet perk is off the table.

Lies, damn lies and Trumpisms.

September 28, 2017

Former University of Florida and current Ohio State coach  Urban Meyer “If you intentionally lie about committing violations, your career is over.” And he said it with a straight face

If Green Bay fans want to give up season tickets over @Packers making statements about racism, sure plenty of younger enlightened fans will take them.

Took decades, but mean bitch Karma finally found a hole in that Teflon coat Rick Pitino’s been wearing.

 

If all NBA players must stand for anthem as mark of respect, can league play national anthems of foreign players as mark of respect?

As woman who has been feeling increasingly uncomfortable w/ football over CTE now feel like I must watch to defend civil rights.

Who knew #TonyRomo might have Hall of Fame credentials. As a broadcaster?

As much as I rag on airlines, United for example has had relief shipments to Puerto Rico since last weekend. Maybe Trump White House should, gasp, hire some airline people to improve efficiency.

Many of younger generation may be asking tonight “What was Playboy?” And others are asking “What was a magazine?” #HughHefner.

Sarah Huckabee Sanders, asked about Trump’s NFL criticism “”I don’t think there’s much to clarify, it’s pretty black & white.”

#whythereisnosatire

Trump threatened Joe Donnelly that if the Indiana Senator. doesn’t support his tax plan,  Trump will campaign against him. Yeah, that really hurt Roy Moore

 

 

Just guessing that all those in GOP decrying rise of folks like Roy Moore never read Mary Shelley in high school. #Frankenstein

Ikea is buying Taskrabbit.  Oddly enough, if their furniture came pre-assembled, Taskrabbit might never have existed.

White House is investigating Jared & Ivanka’s use of private emails. When done they will probably next investigate Trump’s tax returns.

Students who kneel during anthem can be banned from football. With Betsy Devos they’ll have better chance to play if accused of sexual assault.

Alabama GOP official Gary Head to Toronto reporter Daniel Dale “I believe in Jesus Christ myself and I don’t have any problems with anybody’s religion as long as it’s Christian.I don’t go along with the Muslim religion.”
Jesus wept. Literally.

Trump’s fixation on Puerto Rico being an island you can’t drive trucks to is in keeping with his delusion that a wall will stop immigration.

Steve Scalise, upon his return to the Capitol, praised the officers who saved his life, David Baily and Crystal Griner, saying they are “like family.”
So now would be a good time for Scalise to acknowledge that he was wrong; that Crystal’s marriage is a good thing and her wife is REAL family.

Jared Kushner didn’t tell Senate intel committee he had personal email account. To be fair he was probably agonizing which bathroom to use.

 

#NationalPoetryDay “The best lack all conviction, while the worst. Are full of passionate intensity.” WB Yeats.

On a rare serious note, managed to see the Kent State portion of Ken Burns’ Vietnam, which was sad and compelling.
Remember as a kid, thinking, those people are my babysitters’ ages…and remember being appalled. Still remember all four names. But what we forget, as Burns said in an interview -that ” a majority — a vast majority — of Americans approved of the guardsmen. That there was incredibly cruel hate mail and vilification of the people who died.”
Change takes time.

Under covers man?

September 27, 2017

RIP #HughHefner. Bunnies across the world will put their ears at half-staff.

 

Seems so quaint talking about death of a man who put naked women on magazine covers when we have pussy-grabber in White House. #HughHefner

At Hugh Hefner’s funeral will mourners say they are only there for the jokes?

Matt Cain is retiring. I feel old.  #perfectgame  @SFGiants

 

As #Cubs win NL Central again, hard to believe only a year ago #SFGiantswere 1 inning away from forcing them to Game 5 w/ Cueto starting.

Trump: “NFL has to change” or “their business is going to hell.” @NFL response? “Funny, we were thinking the same about your administration”

Now it’s #RickPitino fired over latest NCAA scandal. Men’s college basketball is enough to make you long for the purity of pro wrestling.

An Ohio woman was arrested for DUI when she drove to pick up her boyfriend. Police arrested her at the sheriff’s office where the man was after HE had been arrested for drunk drinking.
Your move, Florida.

Magic Johnson – “Nobody said anything when Tom Brady said he wasn’t going when President Obama was sitting there. And now all the sudden Stephen Curry doesn’t want to go and he makes it a big deal? I think that’s wrong.”
“Loser Magic” tweets in 3.2.1….

Jared Kushner is apparently registered as a female voter in New York. And he’s been going into men’s bathrooms. The horror. #lockhimup?

Some of #RoyMoore‘s belief- gays should not be parents, Obama not born in US, etc, make you wonder if North should have let South secede.

Trump on tax plan that eliminates estate tax – “I think there’s very little benefit for people of wealth.” He said it w/straight face. #WTF?

 

Trump touting tax cuts as “middle class miracle.” As in if they pass it will be a miracle if there are any Americans left in middle class.

This overload of pumpkin stuff at Trader Joe’s is making me long for October when they will replace it with Christmas merchandise.

 

Admittedly there’s some evil cleverness in pushing tax cuts for rich while saying wealthy people could “call me all they want, it’s not going to help.”

Yesterday was #NationalVoterRegistrationDay. Actually EVERY day should be National Voter Registration Day. If you don’t vote, don’t bitch.

A WH official today says Indiana is ‘special’ to Trump. “It’s where he met then-Governor, now Vice President Pence, so it kind of holds a special place in his heart for that reason.”
Uh oh, did someone tell Karen Pence, aka Mother?

That moment when man who accepted Russian citizenship attacks NFL players as “disgusting” & not respecting American flag. #StevenSeagal

 

3 Trump tweets pushing Alabama to vote for Luther Strange deleted last night after Strange lost. Because @realDonaldTrump is NEVER wrong?

 

Don Jr. is back w/ Secret Service protection. During week he was unattended he took big $$ trip to kill a moose. Sure it’s just coincidence.

Following the tainted money?

September 26, 2017

FBI says sting found multiple bribes, payouts involving Arizona, Auburn, Oklahoma State & USC. There’s corruption in NCAA basketball, I’m shocked.

Meanwhile, at Louisville, men’s basketball coach Rick Pitino expressed “complete shock” that his university is also involved in the investigation.

Pitino is shocked?  He’s like the guy overseeing gambling in Casablanca.

Auburn & USC are two of schools snared in NCAA men’s basketball sting. Tigers & Trojans fans are just glad it wasn’t their football teams.

 

Ah for the days when #SFGiants really and truly sucking in 2017 would have been one of things folks in Bay Area were most upset about.

If we got rid of national anthem before sporting events could eliminate controversy AND shorten game times. #winwin

Peyton Manning reportedly a “possible” 2018 candidate for U.S. Senate. Will his campaign be sponsored by Budweiser and Papa John’s?

Repeal of Obamacare will not come to a vote. So officially dead, again. For now. Forget Trumpcare we should call this GOP mess Zombiecare

AG Sessions gave a talk on free speech at Georgetown. Protesters were banned from the speech. #WhyThereIsNoSatire

 

Reportedly Khloe Kardashian is pregnant with  Cavs’ Tristan Thompson’s baby. Odds just went up  for Warriors to be disinvited again as champions  in 2019 by White House.

So Twitter is going to 280 characters? Waiting for the Trump tweet taking credit.

Trump couldn’t get Hurricane Relief to Puerto Rico as “it’s an island.” Somehow 1 of those athletes he trashes, Tim Duncan made it to USVI.

Trump on Puerto Rico- “It’s very tough because it’s an island.” Hawaiians praying they never need federal help while he’s in office. #WTF?

 –

New poll of 2,200 Americans found 54% knew Puerto Ricans are US citizens. Would love to see same folks polled about Hawaiians.

Maybe it would be simpler to learn who in the Trump White House HASN’T used personal email for government business?

In Palm Beach Gardens, a woman was arrested allegedly for trying to run down her lover with her Mercedes.   Her intended victim happened to be her daughter’s husband. She told police he had recently told his wife about the affair, and the “revelation ruined her relationship with her daughter.”
Back on your game, Florida.

From Marc Ragovin  “So it looks like Trump will no longer invite nfl or nba teams to White House celebrations. “That is really gonna affect our plans,” said nobody on the Knicks.”

 

Oh say can you hear?

September 26, 2017

You know, one solution to keep politics out of sports is to stop playing the anthem before games.

Ben Roethlisberger now says he was “unable to sleep” the night after anthem protest.   Like the young woman who accused him of raping her in bathroom?

 –

Before Trump starts “Loser Gregg Popovich” tweets hope someone tells him Pop is now coach of USA Basketball Men’s National Team.

Tough times for many liberals who have been turning away from football over concussions & off-field issues, but now feel a need to watch to defend civil rights.

Meanwhile this Tweet “All Americans R granted rights 2 peaceful protests Those who make peaceful revolution impossible will make violent revolution inevitable-JFK”

from that commie pinko Dale Earnhardt Jr.

 

Nine suspended Gators including WR Antonio Callaway are facing “multiple third-degree felony charges after a UF Police Department investigation into alleged credit card fraud.”
Sure glad they cleaned the program up after Urban Meyer left.

Anthony Weiner was sentenced today to 21 months in prison. Disappointing Democrats who hoped he had been locked up until Nov 4, 2020.

Who knew, Trump has made visiting White House as attractive to most basketball players as the idea of dating a Kardashian.

Gregg Popovich “There has to be an uncomfortable element in the discourse for anything to change.” Btw America, he’s a veteran. #Gospursgo

More from Popovich

 

.  “The bar has been lowered so far that I think it’s more important to be thinking about what to do in a more organic roots, base level Thinking about the efforts to restrict voter registration, comments that demean cultures, ethnic groups, races, women. Those sorts of things.”

“You have got a choice — we can continue to bounce our heads off the wall with his conduct or we can decide the institutions of our country are more important, that people are more important, that the decent America we thought we all had and want is more important, and that we get down to business at the grassroots level and do what we have to do.”

 

CTE-concussion story grows & GOP is silent. Now we have Trump & Texas Sen. Cornyn saying to boycott NFL over guys kneeling? #priorities

 

If you’re more disgusted by NFL players kneeling than you are by Trump attacking former POW Senator with  brain cancer, then yeah, deplorable.

Trump lauding hockey right now. But NHL is the pro-league with the most immigrants taking well-paying jobs from Americans.

Senators Collins and Murkowski have more cojones than most men in the Senate

Susan Collins – “If senators can adjust a funding formula over a weekend to help a single state, they could just as easily adjust that formula in the future to hurt that state. This is simply not the way that we should be approaching an important and complex issue.”
Sanity and logic. What concepts.

Barely winning?

September 24, 2017

So all teams in AL over .500 should make MLB playoffs Who do they think they are -the NBA Eastern Conference?

Stanford used four quarterbacks in the first quarter against UCLA. They might only need 1 the rest of the season. #Costello

Open note to Heisman committee: Yeah, that mostly happened after you went to bed. (Bryce Love,  30 carries for 263 yards and a touchdown, Bringing his season total total to 73 carries, 787 yards and five 5 TDs.)

 

You know you’ve been a Saints fan for too long when aren’t able to watch game, but see they lead 17-6 at half & are then shocked to see they not only didn’t blow the lead but won going away.

 

Trump seems happy the Pittsburgh Penguins are coming to the White House. Has someone told him how many of them are immigrants?

 

Well, so maybe Raiders fans shouldn’t make nonrefundable reservations for Minneapolis the first weekend in February quite yet.

 

 

“My first homicide the guy was shot like 40 times.”
 –
So Monday morning will Trump take credit for the best NFL ratings of the season?
While @realDonaldTrump trashed NFL players the leader of the Free World hung on to win re-election #Merkel

Ted Cruz is a “no” on Graham-Cassidy?   Kobe, Pete Carroll, Ray Lewis, Robert Kraft and others are condemning the President’s response on kneeling.  Damn.  Trump has be agreeing with too many people I don’t like.

Many Americans who’ve been turning away from football over concussions & CTE, may start tuning back in over civil rights.

So is it too soon to start a pool on which NASCAR driver will be the first to say he’s disappointed in Trump comments?

 

Think Trump would pay more attention to Puerto Rico if some athletes went down there to #TakeTheKnee?

Trump so fixated on doubling down on anthem thing you’d almost think he was trying to distract us from something. #Jared #Russia #Healthcare

 

New definition of chutzpah – using private emails for govt business after your father-in-law won the White House largely because his opponent did same thing. #jared

So if the leaders of North Korea and Venezuela are so awful shouldn’t we do all we can for anyone trying to get out of those countries?

Finally,  IMHO.  The US Flag stands for the right to protest it. #TakeTheKnee
