Bring on Wednesday

Anyone catch any of Donald Trump’s rally last evening? *sigh* where to start?!? Let’s just say the video above does most of the work for me. It’s like I was saying last week that he missed his moment to come down hard on White Supremacists and instead tried to play something to his base with “all sides.”

Personally. I thought it showed an extreme amount of low class when you’re attacking a veteran and a man dealing with a brain tumor – John McCain. When did that become acceptable?

Moving on….

Golf with the Boys

Showed up with my 85% wrist that is annoying me to no end. No pain but it’s definitely an annoyance.  I ridiculously suggested that we play teams where we’d rotate every six holes. The main problem is there are so many pickups and then we actually spend time talking about conceding a one-foot putt. I’m not even sure how in good conscience that you’d post from a day where you have so many pickups.

Also – a twelve-foot putt you just pick up and say ,”Is this good for six?” Answer should have been – no you pickup and it’s good for seven. Do you feel that you’re ‘most likely’ draining twelve-foot putts? If you’re being honest with yourself the answer is ‘no’. Secondly – you’re only hurting yourself for a score for today. It’s not a true reflection of what your golfing potential come tournament day. Don’t you want that additional stroke on your handicap if it’s a stroke that you legitimately take?

Why do I use that word ‘most likely’ – Section 4 of the USGA Golf Rules

Michael Rapaport on Colbert

It surely does make me laugh.

Today’s Agenda

I’m moving the boy into the SDSU dorms. One less kid in the house and one more to go. My wife and I are ready to have the house to ourselves again.

It seems like just yesterday he was fourteen and posing for my silly photography.

Friday Political Madness

Donald on HealthCare

John McCain showed up and cast the deciding vote. $20 million would have been less insured and premiums would have been raised according to the early CBO estimates. It’s also not very often that I’ll say that ‘Donald Trump’ was right….but he was right when he said that Australia has far better insurance than we do.

Boys Scouts CEO Apologizes

Why does everything need to be politically oriented? Why can’t you just show up and talk about the importance of values in the Boy Scouts? Read the full letter from the CEO here.

 

Hey it’s Thursday

DP on Football CTE

I think this should just be more alarming for parents. If your kid is already playing or you’re already a professional athlete – this is nothing new that is going to change your mind. Ninety-nine of one hundred that were tested were found to have CTE. That’s an extremely high rate. My take – our bodies and more specifically our skulls weren’t designed to withstand and take the combined impact speeds and trauma put on mind with the impacts of professional football. What’s the answer? I have no idea. It’s their choice and if they know the risks then let them play.

Kyrie Irving

Have you followed this going on in Cleveland? Kyrie believes that he can lead a team on his own. Kyrie believes he’s a franchise type player but can you do that when you’re in the shadow of someone like Lebron James? Give me a break. Kyrie needs to swallow his ego and do what his role is. Score some points and try and bring a (Another) championship to Cleveland.

Perhaps my favorite comment was about Stephen A Smith though….

Donald Trump bans Transgender Citizens from Serving

Did you forget that you said that Donald? You said you’d be better than Hillary Clinton on how these groups were treated. How’s that happening? My take. They fully have my support to serve. I served in an Infantry Unit with 2nd Battalion 6th Marines and I can tell you that anyone that wants to put themselves in harm’s way. I applaud them. I don’t care if they’re white, black, purple, Muslim, Christian, Jewish, gay, straight, or any other. They’re defending our values and putting their lives on the line for American citizens that they’ve never met. That’s the ultimate price.

Also on a slightly different nope. Why is the White House annoyed that a public disclosure form got released? Are you noticing the word I just used ‘PUBLIC’? Conservative Bill Kristol is spot on.

 

 

Happy Wednesday

First the Funny

Hey Donald. Think about this for a moment. How can Obamacare have wreaked havoc for seventeen years?

Katie Ledecky…

John McCain

I may not always agree with his politics but he’s one hell of a fighter with his brain cancer diagnosis.

 

Late Friday and Early Saturday’s

Saturday morning. Off to finish the second round of the Eclectic golf tournament. First some stories that caught my interest.

Dan Patrick on OJ Simpson

SNL Producer Responds to Trump

SNL Producer has been responding to Donald Trump’s tweets as if they’re texts to him. I find it quite funny.

Sergio had a mini melt down. It might have cost him.

Also being that San Diego Comic-Con is huge…

We cannot forget the Big Bang Theory

Trump goes after Mika, Cubs Beat Nationals, and some America’s Got Talent

Trump and Mika

Well, the President became unglued and did what I’ve been thinking he’d be doing for so long. When will someone take away his phone and twitter access? Mashable even wrote a nice piece suggesting that Twitter should ban his account.  You’re the President of the United States. You represent all of us. Even those that did not vote for you. When you take your platform and you use it to attack another woman – you deface the value and integrity of the office to which you represent.

Many people brought up some great responses to him. Many Republican senators and even listened yesterday to a panel of entirely Republican women call him disgraceful. My favorite response was below.

As had become customary, JK Rowling had a great quote from Abraham Lincoln.

I also quite value the opinion of Bill Kristol – edit/writer at Republican magazine ‘Weekly Standard’

Republican Strategist and Communications Chief for George W. Bush Nicole Wallace also had some very valid points on her show.

Also this just in….

It appears that Donald Trump does watch ‘Morning Joe’. He posted this an hour ago.

Cubs Win

My Cubbies pulled out a win with an injured Kris Bryant over one of the best teams in baseball. My buddy, Pete, called Jon Lester a ‘turd’. Well, he was definitely shining against one of the best teams in baseball. Two World Series rings to his credit. How many pitchers have that kind of hardware on your team? *crickets*

America’s Got Talent

Usually, I don’t watch this show. But this amazing clip showed up in my feed. Very well done.

Trump a Hypocrite on the 5th Amendment. Melania takes a pass. Wonder Woman movie soon.

So it just got announced that Michael Flynn will invoke his 5th amendment rights. So he refuses to cooperate in the investigation into the dealings with Russia and our election. Anyone think this sounds familiar?

“If you’re innocent, why are you taking the fiften amendment? ” – Donald Trump during campaign talking about Hillary Clinton staffers

Lets also not forget this…

Hold My Hand. Melania – No Thanks

Good for a laugh.

Wonder Woman comes out Soon

The movie near forty years in the making is due out soon. Excited to see it with my daughter.
