    OK...who's doing the micro analyzing? Who's framing the shots and telling us what to think about it? Pick you side, huh?

    Two ways for any individual to approach this IMO...get angry or don't get angry. I don't get angry because I don't buy the narrative that the progressive media in particular is trying to sell me...and that makes in a bigot, a racist, a homophobe, a woman hater...all that, according to THEM.

    And to them I give a firm middle finger. They say they want to talk, but they're not interested in listening at all. Personally, I leave friends and lovers in the dust for behaving like that...these people dictating to me from the TV screen have nothing to stand on in comparison. They're already approaching me from a weak position and they've got to provide one hell of a persuasive argument to sway me. They're not.

    Creepy Joe just emerged from his basement, and noticed in his infinite wisdom that there is violence in - Portland? And he’s challenging Trump to condemn the violence there? WTH has this nut case been for 3 months? The left is praising him now for this, while at the same time condemning Trump for not acting self and fierce enough on the CCP Virus. Unbelievable.

    Pure 100% grandstanding right there. Soooo.... he's been in politics for 47 years and somehow doesn't understand that Trump can't do anything until the governor of Oregon asks for and accepts his help? Trump has repeatedly proposed to send in the National Guard to help quell the situation but has so far been turned down.

    I think this is the left switching tactics since they're slowly realizing that condoning the riots isn't working to their favor.

    What really cracks me up is all these fools that think if he gets elected, the anarchist will all calm down and everything will just be groovy.

    What they don't understand (or maybe they do?) is that the primary target of the anarchists isn't the Republicans or the gun toting, capitalistic, freedom loving patriots...no, my friends...the target is the Democrat Party. They've been at war with it since Bernie started getting noticed...AOC would like nothing more than to see the old guard Dems put out to pasture...and she may well get her wish. But then again, after the Dems get their asses creamed in the elections they may come to their senses and abandon the Bernie Bros altogether...or try to.

    Biden has no influence on these people...like that gay guy that's the head (no pun intended) of the "Walk Away" movement...he says "You'll give them your vote and they won't do a damn thing for you".

    The progressives, anarchist, socialists and marxists aren't going to get any political power by working their way up the conservative ladder...no, they need to take over the Dem party...then they'll be able to actually influence (and write) legislation. Biden and the so called moderates can't lick enough socialist ass to stop them.

    They seem pretty threatening don't they? They've got these crazy politicians in these cities letting them run rampant...but it'll be interesting to see if they start to lay low once the election is over and the cold weather comes in. Perhaps most of them will tire of it? One thing is for sure, this can't be tolerated...it can't go on indefinitely. Even though I've been saying all along to let them swim in their own sewers, at some point someone is going to have to make the tough call.

    But then again, those that want to go into these cities and kick some anarchists asses may just let it go once Trump wins. Just let them swim in their own little shitty pond...kinda like containment...as long as they don't start assassinating innocent civilians.

    For the first three years of Trump everything was nice and chill...no big riots, everybody had a job that wanted one, pretty peaceful. Even the pussy parade gals mellowed out. Sure would be nice to go back to that, huh? But now it's crazy times. Everything is up in the air. No telling what's going to happen.

    Yet another reason why I refuse to pay any more attention to professional sports. How can you give a pass to an organization that openly glorifies criminals?

    If you're not upset at the politicization of professional sports then you're either spineless or willfully ignorant.

    Yeah, this is a weird one. He came out in favor of standing for the flag and within 48 hrs he was on his knees polishing the black knob. I think his wife came out with a tweet saying that someone had "straightened them out" or "opened their eyes"...something like that.

    For all you guys that ride bikes, I'm sure you're familiar with the disease called "Dickitus"...where all the guys working in a bike shop are just...dicks. Shitty, conceding attitude...they give off the vibe that they're miserable and would rather be somewhere else. Anywhere else, it seems. We've all experienced a place like this.

    Of course it's not ALL bike shops...but where it exists it seems to me that all it takes is one guy to infect the whole place. Perhaps that's what happened to Mr. Brees...perhaps that's what's happening to all these sports teams...a few guys are so disruptive to the team camaraderie that a literal "Jedi mind trick" is inflicted on the others. "Go along to get along".

    Seems like Brees got it real good, though. It may be that as strong and healthy as he is, he may be (and likely always has been) a mental pussy.

    Drew's real feelings came out on day one when he expressed support for the flag and the country.

    But I think Drew was just railroaded into eating those words and he's too spineless to fight back -- especially if the team owner pulled him aside one day and firmly told him to stand down.

    Drew is one of the most religious and God-fearing players in the NFL - I can't see him voluntarily endorsing a criminal.

    Barack Obama Advised LeBron James, NBA Players on Playoff Boycott

    Ex-President Barack Obama involved himself in the deliberations of the NBA players who led last week’s boycott over the Jacob Blake shooting, according to reports.
    Obama presided over the conference call when a group of players, including LeBron James and Oklahoma Thunder player Chris Paul, hashed out their demands and statements ahead of last Wednesday’s walkouts.

    The boycott ended after a single day once the wealthier players had it pointed out to them that younger players would be put in a financial bind if a boycott lasted too long.
