All that smack talk from Patriots fans. And it’s all wrong. A little background on everyone’s favorite rookie. Sadness. Like many others sick of the insanity, Iowahawk is leaving social media. Facebook, RIP. If you can. Nerd stuff. Fireman and Boston Marathon survivor he saved to tie the knot. And from the Hope Springs Ever Eternal Department: Pitchers and Catchers report to spring training in 11 days and… The Masters is 61 days away.

February 3, 2017 7:37 AM Log in to Reply xdog I think Alec MacGillis said it best: “One still shudders to think how bad the Bowling Green massacre would’ve been if not for the heroic intervention of Fred Douglass.” February 3, 2017 7:44 AM Log in to Reply Jack Fitz *insert 10 clapping emojis* February 3, 2017 8:22 AM Log in to Reply xdog Money quote from the the Facebook story: “Since the end of the 2016 election, and especially since it resulted in the victory of Donald J. Trump as president, Facebook has become utterly intolerable.” Utterly, I say. I noticed the link is to The Federalist which reminded me that I had never deleted the bookmark to their site. I’ll get right to that. February 3, 2017 8:02 AM Log in to Reply Dave Bearse Unemployment figures will be released today. I’m guessing BLS will report unemployment on the order of 5%. Start crowing Noway. Cap’n Tinyhands has been in office only two weeks, and the alternative fact is that employment is down 88%. Is he Making America Great Again or what? February 3, 2017 8:23 AM Log in to Reply Noway2016 Nowhere near 5 percent. Nowhere. But Trump’s on the job , so it will be better soonest!

Pope Still no mea culpa for Quebec, eh? February 3, 2017 8:45 AM Log in to Reply Lea Thrace doesnt fit his narrative. February 3, 2017 9:42 AM Log in to Reply Noway2016 Is that for me? What about Quebec? February 3, 2017 11:00 AM Log in to Reply Andrew C. Pope Your insanely quick rush to judgment and utter delight at the thought the attacks were committed by a Muslim, Surprisingly your boy Trump hasn’t said a thing about it, but was quick to crow about the Louvre incident this morning. I guess attacks against Muslims aren’t news but attacks by Muslims are? Oh, that’s right, Steve Bannon is in charge. February 3, 2017 11:16 AM Log in to Reply Noway2016 Like I said before: We’ll see…Hey, maybe like with Major Hassan, they can call it “work place violence?” February 3, 2017 11:21 AM Ellynn Let me help you out… Say “The early reports out of Canada were wrong.” Technically, you are not admitting you might of possible been wrong. It was Canada that was giving everyone alternate facts… those liars.

I said something to you about copycat shootings and the like and i could be rpoven wrong. So, I already addressed the possibility. But, all the facts aren’t in, so we’ll see. February 3, 2017 12:12 PM Benevolus Didn’t like this post. Deleted. February 3, 2017 12:23 PM Dave Bearse Is it legal for POTUS to use his Twitter account directing people who want to read an official Presidential statement to his personal Facebook page adorned by a large “SHOP NOW” button that spans the page? Conservatives need have no ethical worries since sales proceeds from the shopping all go directly to Donald J. Trump for President. You know, the campaign that he funded himself. I signed the White House petition requesting Trump release his tax returns. Cap’n Tinyhands harvested my e-mail address from the petition to spam me a few days later with an e-mail from “The White House”. The e-mail consisted of one sentence and a link to his Facebook page neither of which had anything to do the with the petition. The cheesy carnival barker is doing, well, what carnival barker’s do. And making Conservatives proud. February 3, 2017 9:10 AM Log in to Reply Noway2016 He ain’t releasing squat. Under no legal obligation to do so. Just cause others did, doesn’t mean he has to. But I’m glad to know all y’all signed that little online petition. February 3, 2017 9:20 AM Log in to Reply Dave Bearse I’m sure the GOP is delighted you’re on board with their lowering the bar. February 3, 2017 10:07 AM Log in to Reply Noway2016 Yea, right…riots, burnings, wailing…You’re doing your side well…LMAO! February 3, 2017 11:01 AM Log in to Reply The Eiger I honestly didn’t think it would feel so good to watch liberals whine and cry everyday. But after eight years of Obama it feels oh so good. February 3, 2017 9:38 AM Log in to Reply Dave Bearse As I said, do yourself proud. February 3, 2017 10:14 AM Log in to Reply Noway2016 With respect, E…I could watch these losers whine everyday and not break a sweat! I especially love the fact that they can do absolutely nothing about it in the senate. And, 20 bucks says Trump’s SC nominee gets confirmed. I hope it goes nuclear, too!! And Ginsberg better not be ordering any three minute eggs. She looks horrible. In eight years Trump gets minimum two more pics. Bye, bye Roe v Wade! February 3, 2017 11:05 AM Log in to Reply Jack Fitz Your sanctity of life argument gets a bit watered down when your all but wishing a Supreme Court justice dies in order to change a law. But then again, you’ve never contradicted yourself before. February 3, 2017 11:42 AM Log in to Reply Noway2016 Ahhh, “sanctity of life.” Are you pro-abortion? February 3, 2017 12:15 PM Jack Fitz No. February 3, 2017 1:34 PM Ellynn He will be confirmed. Kennedy is going to be next to retire. Most likely this spring or spring 2019. For Roe to be overturned, the court has to be willing to rule the rights of a zygote/fetus out weight the rights of a living woman. They would basically have to admit that every American (living to zygote) is equal under the eyes of law except for pregnant women. Government can force a woman and her body to do something against her free will. That then sets a precedent in US law that allows any human body (male or female) to be regulated in America. February 3, 2017 1:46 PM Log in to Reply Saltycracker Barbaric position. My family is strongly divided on this subject but 100% of them would not stand for ending a heartbeat well into a healthy pregnancy. You can have the last word. February 3, 2017 2:32 PM Ellynn I personally would not end any pregnancy I had, and I have tried to encouraged other to not end pregnancies. One of those success resulted in my goddaughter, and she is going to go to law school if I have any say in the matter. (She needs to graduate from pre-k this spring first) Realistically, the bottom line of Roe (in a court of law) will be who’s rights matter more. And what is the consequence surrounding each choice. February 3, 2017 3:53 PM Benevolus Don’t get too smug, we’re having a pretty good time watching this jackleg operation in action ourselves. Us snowflakes are worried about all the storm clouds on the horizon though. February 3, 2017 2:02 PM Log in to Reply Sally Forth Yeah, E…. but what about all the cowards clad in black with heads/faces covered in black hoods? They are a modern day mob no different than the old monotone KKK model (clad in white with white head/face coverings), only way more destructive to huge cities, universities, private vehicles, policemen, etc. Why is nobody recognizing the comparison and raising hell to stop the anonymity that breeds ever-worsening acts? Make them show their faces like was done to shut down Klan activity. February 3, 2017 10:04 PM Log in to Reply Andrew C. Pope The anti-fascist protesters are “way more destructive to huge cities, universities, private vehicles, policemen, etc.” but at least they aren’t lynching people.. I’ll take a billion busted Starbucks windows over one lynching any day. Oh, by the by, the Klan destroyed and burned down people’s homes and businesses, so you’re probably wrong on the “way more destructive” point. Lastly, the anti-mask statute applies to these protesters as well. If they get arrested, they get charged with a violation just like Klan members do. February 4, 2017 7:07 AM Log in to Reply John Vestal And from the Department of A Snowball’s Chance, we have an actual civil rights bill filed at the Capitol. February 3, 2017 9:50 AM Log in to Reply CoastalCat Dementia. Denial. Come on GOP. Impeach. February 3, 2017 11:48 AM Log in to Reply Noway2016 On what grounds?! Emoluments?!?!!?!?!!!?!? LOL! February 3, 2017 12:01 PM Log in to Reply Bart You do realize who replaces Trump if somehow he was removed from office, right? February 3, 2017 12:49 PM Log in to Reply Andrew C. Pope Mike Pence may be a hard-line conservative, but at least he behaves like a grown man. February 3, 2017 1:02 PM Log in to Reply CoastalCat So you sneer at the Constitution? Good to know your party loyalty overcomes any sense of country. February 3, 2017 12:16 PM Log in to Reply Noway2016 My side is hurting from laughing! Post something else, please!! February 3, 2017 12:19 PM Log in to Reply Noway2016 You know, with most of our attention being focused on the Falcons and the Super Bowl this weekend, I was pleasantly surprised to find this story on – The Clinton Foundation. Once Sessions votes for Betsy, he is sworn in as AG. What preparations should Hillary make in anticipation of that? https://www.nytimes.com/2017/02/02/us/hillary-bill-clinton-foundation.html?_r=0 February 3, 2017 3:39 PM Log in to Reply Ellynn He’s going to be too busy telling Stephen Miller what to tell the white house to do. And gutting what’s left of the voter right act. And overturning the police department agreements. And all the lawsuits the ACLU is saying they are going to file. And the weakening the 10th, 14th, and 25th amendment to bother with that. He was going to go after the 3rd but that might be a little too fascist for the GOP to handle. The 19th though is still on his list of options I hear. We hear is has a dislike for crocheted hats. (written in sarcastic font, I hope) February 3, 2017 4:10 PM Log in to Reply Noway2016 Well, thinking about it, I proposed an unintentional trick question. He’s recused himself in this one!!! I fergot! So, while Sessions is working on all the things you listed, what will Hillary be thinking knowing that a career prosecuting D-AG will be looking into her case? I was thinking she should buy a hair net for potentially having to work in the “facility” cafeteria. February 3, 2017 4:19 PM Log in to Reply Benevolus Maybe she’ll ask for a reset. February 3, 2017 4:59 PM Log in to Reply Noway2016 Lol!
