Dear Fellow Conservative

 

If you haven’t figured it out yet, the game of life is being stacked against you. This, courtesy of the unscrupulous left. This is true in all facets in American life and can be illustrated by reliving a stunning few days in the sports & entertainment world. Take the recent Miss America contest that was […]

Bennett, Done That

 

When it comes to NFL player Michael Bennett and the police, what happens in Las Vegas doesn’t stay in Las Vegas, and in fact, we get two entirely different versions of what happened in Las Vegas. At issue is Seattle Seahawks star Michael Bennett who claims that the Las Vegas police targeted and harassed him […]

The Hurricane’s Clutch Performers

 

As a former Houstonian, I can attest to the unique personality and spirit the people of Houston, and for that matter most Texans, share. They believe they are special and unique, and indeed they are, and despite what Politico may want you to believe they are special and unique in a good way. Soon the […]

Free Speech Has Gone to a Better Place

 

No sooner did my article come out last week on how renaming Fenway’s Park’s famed Yawkey Way was another example of political correctness run amok than ESPN decided to be even 50 shades nuttier than Red Sox owner John Henry. The Worldwide Leader, as it bills itself, drew universal negative condemnation for removing a football […]

Out Goes the Yawkey Way

 

America is in the midst of a Mao-like purging of history. Anything that isn’t politically correct must go, our own little cultural revolution, with those not going along with the fun surely to be ostracized or to be lumped in with the Neo-Nazi nut jobs in Charlottesville and elsewhere. We are tearing down statues, markers, […]

The NFL season is almost upon us, and Colin Kaepernick is still out of work. Guess whose fault this is? According to the media, it’s your fault and mine for being unflinching, unyielding bigots. Kaepernick’s employment status, or lack there of, swirled through the news yet again when quarterbacks Joe Flacco of the Baltimore Ravens […]

Going for Broke — Can Los Angeles Afford to Host the Olympics?

 

By now you probably know that Los Angeles has the honor, or should I say heartburn, of hosting the 2028 Olympics. Long gone are the days when such an announcement would fill the locals with pride, as it is now generally understood that local residences will have to put up with increased traffic, never-ending infrastructure […]

Forgetting How to Behave

 

The Mooch is gone and not a moment too soon. Normally I write about when politics and sports intersect, and this week I had intended to opine about the cultural rot in evidence from the prefight trash talking between Conor McGregor and boxer Floyd Mayweather. Call me prudish, but I think their public discourse is […]

The Juice Is Loose

 

The juice is loose, as was popular to say in the 1970s when O.J. Simpson ran through NFL backfields with abandon. Now O.J. is on the loose again (or soon will be this October), this time getting probation from his lengthy prison stay that had nothing to do with the killings of his wife and […]

With Malice Toward Most

 

Remember when all your local sports team had to worry about was winning games and selling tickets? Now they are also expected to be political activists as well. Case in point is what is happening in Tampa Bay. As is vogue these days, Confederate statues and memorials are being removed as quickly as ISIS obliterates […]
