    Are you white and have flashed someone the OK hand sign? You are a racist!

    It's like we are caught in some idiotic vortex.

    Tweet of the Day

    I know. I've had some crappy bosses, but it still amazes me that this man has any success at all the way he willing discards people. It baffles me that people enter into business with him knowing how he treats people long term. Money is important, but he isn't the only game in town.

    How's That Blue Wave Coming Along?

    Way too early prediction: Not much will actually change.

    Mollie Tibbetts killed by illegal alien

    Maybe on a random day...they should pass out Official Citizenships tests in every school in America. Then, have every teacher and student take said test. If you fail, citizenship is revoked and given to someone that is really hungry and downtrodden from another country. Clearly they are more...

    Mollie Tibbetts killed by illegal alien

    My point is it is a tragedy to lose life so unnecessarily, and for me it makes no difference whatsoever if the perp is a citizen or not. The victim are no more less dead. I'm not denying the need for the conversation on illegal immigration and reforms. I just don't see the need to flame the...

    Mollie Tibbetts killed by illegal alien

    Nope, but you apparently need me to be to somehow make your narrative work. I'm nowhere near in favor of open borders. My commentary is more about media finding political dynamite in every story versus telling the story. Close the border. I'm tired of hearing about it. Shut off the spigot so...

    Mollie Tibbetts killed by illegal alien

    Because it is idiotic grandstanding. Every death that takes place with an ounce of useful political fire gets the front page. We are speaking less about the victim and more about immigration status. I'm for immigration reform. The great tragedy here IS NOT that he is an illegal immigrant, or...

    Mollie Tibbetts killed by illegal alien

    Guy murdered his whole family the other day. If immigration laws were different, his wife and daughters would still be dead. Anyone else get tired of this kind of story? I understand he's illegal. I don't think it is the important factor of the story at this point. That a young woman...

    South Africa begins seizing white-owned farms

    I agree. Helping only when it is both prudent and comfortable isn't really that impressive.

    Tweet of the Day

    I haven't watched a whole lot of news anywhere the last few years. It is tiresome and offers nothing but more bs to try and sift through. I don't need talking points from either side, just the facts.

    Chargers' Russell Okung raises fist during national anthem

    Picking a protest is hard. If you choose something comfortable and easy you get ignored. You pick the anthem and you get dogged for it. They aren't going to have a coherent message. There are lots of players in the league and they are not unified the way a movement would be. Police are being...

    Chargers' Russell Okung raises fist during national anthem

    Horrible messenger IMO, and it makes it easy to distract the narrative. I think it is a really important discussion to have. Independent of racial violence, I'm worried about the over militarization of police. The point of the right to have guns to create a last line of defense against tyranny...

    Chargers' Russell Okung raises fist during national anthem

    We know what they are protesting for, but the talking heads won't have the discussion because pitting people's patriotism/or lack thereof against the right to peaceful protest gets the headlines. Brutality against minorities is a much harder discussion for both sides, imo. Therefore, we get the...

    Chargers' Russell Okung raises fist during national anthem

    I do not understand the backlash against what amounts to a peaceful protest. I don't agree with the protests, but there is a lot of bs rhetoric that does nothing but distract from the point. From what I understand, the point is and has to do with police violence against minorities. I think...
