The league can’t force a franchise to sign someone.
Teams don’t sign people who are likely to be a distraction since many times distractions lead to losses. And losses lead to coaches and GMs to losing their jobs. Any team that signs Kaepernick will be slammed by their fan base. And the media will talk more about kneeling controversy than the…[Read more]
Some people are under the belief that between the George Floyd protests and COVID-19, there is no way Trump will be re-elected and it’s the “silver lining.” That’s not necessarily the case.
But Van Jones also recently stated to not buy into that talk that Trump can’t win. Jones says the race is too close to call. Trump’s base isn’t the majority,…[Read more]

He’s trolling. He says something to create controversy, opponents and media get all upset and worked up, and then his base loves him for it.
Usually political leaders and candidates work hard to avoid such things. Trump relies on it. Been doing it for years.

That stolen iPhone may have its eye on you.
The civil unrest that’s swept the globe in the week since George Floyd was pronounced dead soon after white officer Derek Chauvin knelt on his neck for almost nine minutes has sparked some violent outbursts and looting.

Try to pass something…anything. Something meaningful but has a chance to pass. Don’t just write a bloated 20,000 page bill and watch it die on the floor and throw up your arms and say, “we tried now vote for us again!” One bill doesn’t have to try and solve every problem.
Congress needs to start doing its job. I’m sure you can find a few liber…[Read more]

Joe Biden said Monday that police under attack in the line of duty should shoot their assailants “in the leg instead of the heart” as a way to avert the killing of civilians.
“Instead of standing there and teaching a cop, when there’s an unarmed person coming at them with a knife or something, you shoot them in the leg instead of in the heart i…[Read more]

Well the FBI has the ability to track down people on the internet that are actively organizing riots. That’s not hard to do. I’d be surprised if they haven’t already put several social media accounts under surveillance. But taking them down that can be a slow process that will take place over the weeks ahead. It could involve court orders, warrants, etc..

Hollow threat. I don’t believe for one second these protesters won’t immediately vote for Joe Biden and every other establishment Democrat at every chance. The establishment Dems know black Americans will never vote for Trump.
Black Americans had a chance to oust the establishment and try something different back in February. They didn’t do it.…[Read more]

When there is protests and unrest, a lot of different groups of people across the spectrum rush out to push their own agenda. That’s unfortunate because then usually those people drown out the message of the original protesters. But you’ll find everyone.

No leadership but also no unified voice on the side of the protesters. You ask these protesters what they want and none of them give a consistent answer. Reporters routinely ask them why they are angry and why are they out there and none of them give the same answer. They are just mad and not exactly sure what they are mad at or how it should…[Read more]

Violence won’t fix racism. Violence won’t make a racist person change their mind. So if your goal is to get society as a whole to change its thinking and perception…this isn’t the way to do it. It’s not going to work.
There is also no clear message. Yeah there is the issue of police violence and race. But beyond that, no one seems to have any…[Read more]
