Monday Snippets

While I was out playing gunfighter this weekend, the world kept spinning and some of it was news.

Everyone is reporting that Roger Goodell, the NFL Commish, wants $50 million a year and lifetime use of a private jet.    Bullshit!  No one is worth that much money.  Of course, the NFL can do what  the NFL wants to do, but personally, I'd tell him that he could go screw himself.

A while back, a Democrat shot and severely injured a Louisiana Congressman at a softball practice.  More recently, a Democrat beat and injured a Republican Senator.  Now, Governor Jerry Brown a Democrat from California, offers violence to protesters.    Why has the Democratic Party become such a cesspool of violence?  When did shootings, beatings, and threats of violence become acceptable political discourse?

Joe Biden is starting a book tour.  From what I know about Uncle Joe, he's likable enough, and he certainly is entertaining.  I've seen other folks who think that he had some regrets about being railroaded by Hillary, and should have run for President.  I say don't count him out.  He is certainly an experienced politician

Bush Derangement Syndrome was bad enough, but Trump Derangement Syndrome is beyond the pale.  It appears that the New York Times has published an op-ed calling for segregation.  
The same is true, unfortunately, of those who hold no quarter for Mr. Trump but insist that black people need to do the reaching out, the moderating, the accommodating. Imagine the white friend during the civil rights era who disliked blacks’ being beaten to death but wished the whole thing would just settle down. However likable, you could not properly describe her as a friend. Sometimes politics makes demands on the soul.
Wow.  Tonight at church, I'll pray for his soul.

Yep, it is truly a STUPID time with the political BS spilling over/being forced down our throats!
