Push ’em back, push ’em back, way back

So if it’s a 15-yard penalty for NFL player kneeling during the National Anthem does it mean a safety if enough players kneel?   And what if both teams kneel?  So confusing….

SF Giants manage to lose 11-2 to Astros and it wasn’t even the most embarrassing loss in the Bay Area to a Houston team?

NY Mets have signed Jose Bautista, 37, to a 1-yr-deal, even though many feel he can no longer hit major league pitching. But really, doesn’t that make him a perfect fit for the @Mets?

Astros released their former top prospect Jon Singleton, now serving a 100-game suspension for 3rd positive drug test. Three failed tests? At some point it’s less a test for drugs than stupidity.

 

Somewhere Barbara Jordan and Shirley Chisholm are smiling. Stacey Abrams wins Democratic primary for Governor in Georgia.

 

R.I.P #PhilipRoth ““Everybody else is working to change, persuade, tempt and control them. The best readers come to fiction to be free of all that noise.” He was right. In Roth’s honor pick up a good novel.

 

Truly amazing. @realDonaldTrump gives keynote address at a “Pro-life” event the same day he cuts $7 billion from CHIP – Children’s Health Insurance Program. Once again #ProLifeMyAss

 

Reports that Trump’s staff DELIBERATELY including spelling & grammar errors in tweets they write for him, because they believe it plays better with his base. As if we needed more proof that education causes Democrats.

 

Since Trump thinks security on his phone is too inconvenient, maybe someone should show him that old transcript of Prince Charles saying he wishes he were a tampon so he could live in Camilla all the time… hacked from a cellphone.

In Texas, sheriff is not sure yet any of Santa Fe school victims weren’t shot by police crossfire. Now imagine schools with a number of frightened and armed teachers?

Father of Santa Fe shooter says son was “good boy” who was mistreated. Now, bullying sucks, and it happened to me sometimes. But okay, how many of us were bullied in school and never thought solution was killing your classmates?

A Publix supermarket in South Carolina censored a mom’s cake for her son when she asked for “Congrats Jacob! Summa Cum Laude Class of 2018.”
Because they thought “Cum” was profanity. Your move, Florida.
