1. I've watched ESPN's Jamele Hill on TV a few times, and I'll admit that as a sports commentator, she is weak.
Now I know why. She's an idiot.
To claim that Donald Trump is a white supremacist, without any factual basis for that claim, is pathetic. To claim that he has "surrounded himself with white supremacists" when there was, arguably, only one in Trump's inner circle, is moronic. Does Jamele's Twitter rant rise to the level of a "fire-able offense" as the White House spokesperson alleges? Probably not in and of itself, but ESPN and their parent company, ABC, should be considering whether they should be employing someone willing to display a gargantuan level of stupidity on most subjects.
2. I read about some of the recent Miss America contestants answers to some politically-charged and biased questions from celebrity "judges" last week, and their answers reminded me of one of the rules of marriage that my favorite former talk show host, Neal Boortz, always used to say about dating and marrying pretty girls - "Sooner or later, you have to talk to them".
Let's just say that MENSA will not be reaching out to contact many of these women for membership opportunities.
3. Why does anyone care what entertainers or people in the media think?
Actors and actresses spend their entire lives reading back what someone else has written for them, and move and act according to what their director tells them to do. They don't have an independent thought running through that vacuum between their ears.
And so-called journalists? They don't DO anything. They just tell you what other people have done. They're basically just state-protected tattletales. And they can't even do that well, now that they think their role is to OPINE about a person, instead of just reporting about someone.
4. If you think a deep thought can be expressed in a maximum of 140 characters, you're part of the problem.
And I just did that in less than 100 characters. #efficiency
5. I'm all for giving non-citizens living in America the right to vote in local elections, and local elections ONLY.
Just as long as citizens get two votes.
Hi! I'm Dave Richard, your host. I hope you enjoy your visit. We'll be talking about current events, politics, the occasional sports (I'm a HUGE New England Patriots fan, so get over it), and some "Get off my lawn!" issues.
