“You can’t love your country only when you win.”

True sports fans get that statement.

Why doesn’t everyone?


British Open champion Cameron Smith just said it was “unfair” that players on LIV Golf tour will not receive world ranking points & may not be able to get into major events.

You know who will never be able to attend a major golf event?

Jamal Khashoggi

“An overdue library book?”

Uh, I did college thesis on Katheryn Howard, Henry VIII’s 5th wife. Like many history students, worked w/ a few valuable books & documents.

They were hardly important to national security, US or British, but libraries don’t even let you take that kind of book home.

US Presidents have made speeches to rally Americans before. But has there ever been a speech where a President encouraged us to fight for our democracy against enemies not “foreign” but “domestic?”

President Biden “Not every Republican, not even most Republicans are MAGA extremists, but the Republican party is dominated, driven and intimidated by Donald Trump and the MAGA Republicans. And that is a threat to this country.” No lies detected.

If you’re attending a Presidential speech and you think appropriate conduct is to yell “F*ck Joe Biden” during the speech then you might be one of those extreme MAGA Republicans Biden was warning us about.

Kevin McCarthy bemoaning America, claiming empty shelves & high prices at stores mean “children can’t get the nutrition they need.” While GOP cut child tax credit & many in GOP voted to cut school lunches…. One of those moments I really wish I had Nerf ball to throw at TV.

Newly elected Alaska Democratic Rep. Mary Peltola said Sarah Palin texted congratulations last night & called her ‘a real Alaskan chick. Beautiful and smart and tough.” Uh oh, will Sarah now be on Velveeta Voldemort’s’ “RINO” list? For an actual gracious moment in defeat?

Mississippi Governor Tate Reeves says there is “No long-term solution yet for the water crisis.” Maybe if the state tries electing more Democrats?

Hunter Biden, the son of the President, is not an advisor to his father and is not involved in politics. Ginni Thomas, wife of a sitting SCOTUS judge, DOES advise her husband. And she tried to overturn an election. See the difference?

Amy Klobuchar, after returning from a trip to Ukraine with GOP Senator Rob Portman talked with Alex Wagner about how Ukrainians are putting their lives on the line.

She points out President Biden is asking Americans to put their votes on the line. And reminds us of Biden’s line: “We honor the will of the people.”

That’s democracy.
