PMF... Three Eye-Witnesses to the Las Vegas Shooting Watch the above video which I found on the blog Intellihub yesterday. It is an astounding peep into what is going on in contemporary America. A street corner, in this case, Las Vegas, is the site of a chance meeting between five Americans. One, the fellow dressed in the "Uncle Sam" costume, looks to be a "street entertainer". He has a couple of wooden props, one a cutout of Hillary in the nude and the other is Trump. He is trying to attract the attention of passers by and engage them in humorous political jokes. There is a cameraman, recording the scene. Three people, two women and a man stop and talk with him ...

A Racial Snapshot of America Let us look into the abyss. It will do no good. First, another page in the sordid comic book of American race relations. In Beijing, three black basketball players from UCLA were arrested for shoplifting. They faced jail time. Ten years, actually. The theft was so stupid that it demands explanation. It was too stupid for stupidity to be responsible They did not need to steal. They were pampered babies of semi-pro basketball, infinitely privileged. They are not expected to meet academic standards, to study, or be able to read. Something other than conventional stupidity must be involved. Is it that blacks, as various psychologists have said, lack impulse ...

"French wingsuit flyers recently completed an unbelievable stunt following a B.A.S.E. jump from the top of the Jungfrau mountain in Switzerland. Fred Fugen and Vince Reffet, known as the Soul Flyers, caught up with and flew into a plane in mid-air.  As part of their project A Door in the Sky, which they had spent several months training for by completing more than 100 test flights in Empuriabrava in Spain, the duo B.A.S.E jumped from the top of the Jungfrau, one of Europe’s highest mountains, and flew into a Pilatus Porter light aircraft in mid-air. Now that's a different way to catch a flight." Poster Comment:Beyond crazy.

To get out of jail free you either need to draw the right card in a Monopoly game or be a basketball player who gets caught shoplifting in China. LiAngelo Ball, Jalen Hill, and Cody Riley, who are now on indefinite suspension from the UCLA Bruins basketball team, were in China with their team for a basketball game against Georgia Tech. The trio was arrested after allegedly shoplifting from a Louis Vuitton store in Hangzhou, China. After being detained for over a week and facing up to ten years in prison, they were released after President Donald Trump intervened on their behalf with Chinese President Xi Jinping. These are not the only prisoners that Trump should have freed. Far more ...

DETROIT — CNN is on the television in the living room of Antoinette Brown and Travon King’s small, but tidy house Wednesday morning here on the city’s far East Side, a couple blocks south of 8 Mile Road. A report comes on about a tweet sent by Donald Trump, wondering if he would receive a thank you from three UCLA basketball players he helped gain a release from Chinese detention after they were arrested on three counts of shoplifting last week. “I’ll thank him,” Antoinette interrupted, speaking to the TV. “If Trump helps us, if he helps Wendell, I won’t stop thanking him.

Let it Burn: NFL’s TV ratings still sliding; 2017 figures down big ( 18.7%) from same period in 2015

The NFL’s once-golden network TV ratings continue to drop. League games averaged 15.1 million viewers through Week 7, according to Nielsen data obtained by Sporting News. That’s down 5.1 percent from 15.87 million viewers during the same period last season and off 18.7 percent from 18.35 million viewers during the same period in 2015. Ratings are lagging for a variety of reasons, not least the ongoing protests during the national anthem that former 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick began in 2016. Fans are still angry about Kaepernick’s continued unemployment as well as what’s seen as the growing politicization of the NFL. In addition, President Donald Trump continues ...

In America you can say anything you want, as long as it doesn’t have any effect. – Paul Goodman The vacuity of serious thought in America is revealed in so many instances that it is difficult to put together a top-ten list of candidates. Among the fatuous contenders is that involving the question of whether NFL players should stand for the playing of the national anthem. Not since the 1988 presidential campaign, when George W. Bush focused on the sanctity of the Pledge of Allegiance to satisfy members of the boobeoisie to elect him president, has so much mental energy been spent on such a hollow topic. Patriotic rituals serve one purpose: to reinforce the conditioning begun in ...

Over the past month we’ve seen protests within the NFL take a startling racist turn. Some players are no longer happy just to quietly protest the anthem, as we’re now seeing black players rendering black power salutes after they sack white players, an act that Seahawks player Michael Bennett started last month. But now things have taken a startling turn for the worst, and a white quarterback has just suffered a season-ending injury that appears to be due to a disgusting act of racism on the football field.
