Doesn't Sandmann remind you of the smug little rich mama's boy we all hated in high school? No he was just a kid that the media wanted to use the "white privilege" propaganda term to destroy him. It backfired on them with Duke Lacrosse and it backfired here yet they still run with stories...Jump to post

Given that it's been widely reported that she's having some mental health issues, it seems more than a little harsh to tell her to "suck it up". I just feel Simone Biles isn't going to do something like this unless something is really amiss. I actually think something deeper is going on. ...Jump to post
The judge in the case ruled that Sandmann's basis for the suits were "not supported by the plain language in the article, which states none of these things" he ruled. We know this already but they paid to settle after. https://www.washingtonpost.com/lifestyle/style/washington-post-settles...Jump to post
Interesting the "speed over accuracy" angle in the article. It rears it's ugly head a lot like the Olympic park bombing and Duke Lacrosse case. There is also the other motive when it comes to "white privilege" I am glad CNN and the WaPo had to pay Sandmann. They paid him a chari...Jump to post

I am not saying violence does not happen during protests. Obviously it does. But to compare BLM to the domestic terror attack of 1/6 is crazy.
Fair enough, but that doesn't distract from the fact the Norwegian female beach handball team was issued a fine for wearing the wrong (non-pervy) kind of shorts. I hope you’re never anywhere near a beach or swimming pool if you find the beach volleyball or handball clothing pervy, lord only knows w...Jump to post

Ever tried doing anything in 100F heat? Even sitting is exhausting. As far as clothing choices, women are wearing more and more because they are tired of being sexualized and want to be taken seriously. Makes me respect Ken Venturi all that more. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/1964_U.S._Open_(golf)Jump to post
Actually, for the US Senate you need a quorum of 51 senators. Democrats only have 50 https://www.senate.gov/reference/reference_index_subjects/Rules_and_Procedure_vrd.htm I would laugh if the GOP senate took off over an infrastructure bill. They can't stand Americans, and they can't stand working t...Jump to post
CDC has an updated guidance for immunocompromised individuals. IMHO this recommendation is too late. In a country full of people against masks, asking some to go back to wearing masks after boldly disowning, is like putting genie back in the bottle.

At the risk of reopening a can of worms... I just learned today that Naomi Osaka has released a Netflix docuseries. Gotta say, I will not be watching it. She (fairly) expressed that she has suffered mental health issues due to fame and media scrutiny. Cool. I'll buy that...until you expose yourself...Jump to post
Again this sure looks like lack of due process. There has to be a procedure that anyone doesn't lose income or have their lives ruined until all the facts are in.Jump to post
. When the MAGAs decided we can't trade with Cuba and covid happened, that was when things started to go bad for them. Didn't the USA decide we can't trade with Cuba in the 60s? Who was MAGA back then? And that policy started to be reversed because it was found to be doing more harm than good. Noth...Jump to post
I have driven every Interstate in TX and yes that is harsh. I got pulled over twice, for same thing but they were looking for drugs and to Sebs point NY plates always catches their attention.

There are calls for the US to intervene. I guess Americans never learn ? And the situation is already partly caused by the US and its embargo, adding insult to injury. The US will not intervene. Sooner or later the people will rise up. I am hoping this could mean the end to oppression in that count...Jump to post
ITALIA!!!!!!!!! CHAMPIONS!!!! What a Penalty shootout! Italy owed a lot to their Goalkeeper he is amazing! Italy have such an advantage in penalty shootouts with Donarruma in goal. He's tall and imposing, and he strikes fear into opposing penalty-takers. Forza Azzurri! That's how a team picks thems...Jump to post
I just saw a replay of the danish free kick. Apparently our players didn’t keep the 1 meter distance to the English wall until the ball was struck as required by the rules. That is also wrong. Correct. It was mentioned earlier in this thread but you very much had your blinkers on at the time. That ...Jump to post
This was absolutely hilarious reading all the Trumpers come in here and doubt this story when not a single thing was remotely unbelievable. Priceless. Not really, I wouldn't believe it.

England finally made it to another final. All they needed was home-field advantage and a phantom penalty. Get over yourselves. England (for once in a competition) were the better team and fully deserved the win. You make your own luck in sport. They were even though that call was rubbish. Their spe...Jump to post

I don't believe for a minute that your doctor had a bunch of Trump/MAGA stuff up. C'mon now... She had Trump decorations in her personal office space. Not within public view.

Italia! Now Spain! Such a great tournament so far! While I can't see Spain beating Italy (based on performances thus far), the one thing that Spain will do is to deny Italy the ball for long periods of time. It's certainly one to look forward to. This Spanish squad is still very green. Italy will c...Jump to post
On the fish sandwich front, I'll agree, Arby's offering is superior. There are some local fish and chips chains here in the Seattle area that do it up right.
