Here Come the Indian Mascot Killers

"USA Today Sports asked the Cleveland Indians, Atlanta Braves, Chicago Blackhawks, Kansas City Chiefs and Washington's NFL club whether they would consider a similar policy and if they are comfortable with some fans of their teams coming to games dressed as pretend Indians." I wonder if USA Today has a problem with "pretend Indians" in the US Senate, like Elizabeth Warren?

The Stolen Job Myth

"BTW Americans WILL do MOST jobs" Americans will do any job--if the price is right. For centuries, Americans managed to roof and paint houses, lay foundations, build house frames, pour concrete and install drywall--all without the help of illegal immigrants. They also managed to bring in crops. Ava Gardner helped her family bring in tobacco and cotton when she was young. Contrary to what Jacoby says, we don't need immigrants. Our continent-wide country is now full. When the Statue of Liberty was built, we had about 45 million people. We now have 325 million people. When I was in high school in the 1960s, the population was 180 million. The increase is alarming.

In my industry, building and remodeling, there are boom periods and slow periods. When demand is high, there's plenty of work and prices go up. We need to make a lot of money during these periods to carry us through the inevitable slumps in the market. We didn't in the last boom (ending in the burst housing bubble of 2007), because every time there was a shortage of labor, it was filled by illegals rather than raising prices to attract needed workers. The illegals did work Americans wouldn't do--at the prices that middle-class consumers felt they were entitled to. That may have been good for Jacoby when he bought or remodeled a house but it hurt me. It continues to hurt me.
An Iranian player left the field and punched a heckler in the nose. That's when the Shiite hit the fan!
Sometimes the players are obnoxious. Case in point: At a game involving the Iranian team, one spectator was heckling a particular player. The player went into the stands and punched the heckler in the nose. That's when the Shiite hit the fan!
"obama has NO talent for anything" I disagree. He is a talented demagogue.
The next time these women have a stopped up drain or a leaking roof, will they seek out an "empowered" woman who "connects and communicates" or will they find someone who can actually do something?
Sadly, no, he has not changed his tune. He's destined to be a homeless bum.
When my loser nephew asked me if the city I live in, Durham, NC, had a lot of "underprivileged" people, I retorted that I didn't know what that term meant. I added that this is a prosperous city but that some people just don't take advantage of the opportunities here. The next time he used that term, I jumped down his throat and said that everybody that lives in this country is privileged.

The Real Vote Fraud

When I was in graduate school in the mid 1970s, a conservative friend (rare in those days) said, "There's a lot of talk about people's rights but no corresponding dialogue about their responsibilities." This stuck with me and marked a turning point in my long journey from an idealistic and mushy-headed liberal to the conservative I am today. People have the right to vote and the corresponding responsibility to provide an ID.
