CLEVELAND BROWNS ANDREW HAWKINS SPEAKS…

September 24th, 2016

Dan Labbe, in Andrew Hawkins on national anthem protests: ‘It’s not so much about the kneeling as much as it is about the message’ for The Plain Dealer, writes: If Miami Dolphins players continue their protest during Sunday’s national anthem before their game against the Browns, wide receiver Andrew Hawkins—as outspoken as any NFL player […]

DO A GOOD DEED: ADOPT A SAD, CONFUSED XBAT…!

September 24th, 2016

An XBAT is a Xenophobic Bigoted Anonymous Troll. Since I began following Rodney Axson’s story on The Plain Dealer‘s website I’ve identified several of these particularly odious creatures and now follow them with the intent of injecting a bit of sanity into their ravings.

IN MIKE DIKTA’S WORLD, THERE WOULD BE NO USA…

September 24th, 2016

So, here’s a core fail of all the people who subscribe to the whole America, Love It Or Leave It philosophy: if the founders had followed that advice we all would still be bowing and curtsying to Queen Elizabeth as our rightful sovereign.

You can’t regulate people’s feelings. Reading […]

FOR RAZORBACK, DEPLORABLE AND COL KURTZ…

September 22nd, 2016

This is for Razorback, Deplorable, Col Kurtz* and the rest of the cowardly bigots frightened by strong Americans standing up by taking a knee for justice. Here are the panels leading up to today’s: 160919, 160920 and 160921. [Update on 25 Sept @ 0531: here are the panels that follow the above—160923 and 160924.] *Col […]

EVERYONE HAS A PRICE, BUSINESS DEPENDS ON IT…

September 21st, 2016

I have no problem with sponsors pulling funds from athletes (or anyone for that matter) when the bought puppet fails, or outright refuses, to dance as instructed. That’s just business. Corporations never give money to anyone without expecting a return on their investment, to do so would simply be naive if not stupid. All of […]
