Beto getting a little desesperado….

leave a comment »

On a scale of 1 to 10, let’s call this one a super act of desperation. How else do you explain a human being saying that he will make it easier for boys who thinks they are girls to compete with real girls?

In another time, the Democrats would have politely asked that person to register as something else rather than a “D.”

According to news reports, Beto O’Rourke has decided to stroke the extreme left wing of the party by saying this:

Democratic presidential hopeful Beto O’Rourke released his plan for “LGBTQ-Equality” Wednesday and one element of the plan would ensure that transgender males would be allowed to compete on female sports teams. In announcing the plan, O’Rourke exclaimed that it would “ensure LGBTQ+ Americans can live openly without fear or discrimination or violence and would immediately reverse the Trump Administration’s Discriminatory policies.”

This is so insane and crazy that I can’t read it any longer.   Beto’s idea would ruin girls’ sports, specially soccer where girls are doing so well!

Beto has a lot of problems:

First, he’s been replaced by the guy with a husband, or Mayor Pete.  Beto has a loving traditional wife who stands by her man when he is announcing for president.  The liberal wing would rather see a man stand by his husband.  To paraphrase the old saying, this is not your dad’s party anymore!

Second, Beto has turned boring and weird, i.e. trip to the dentist on video?

Third, he is not running against Senator Ted Cruz anymore.  He is back to being the unknown fellow from South Texas who went to private schools and married a rich man’s daughter.  In other words, he is the classic white guy who benefited from being white in a party that hates that.

So Beto is desperate for the magic to return.  Unfortunately, it’s not going to return.  Maybe he would have been better off getting a show on MSNBC and courting his devout followers until he could run for governor in 2024.

Yes, it’s time to say “adios” to Beto.  He is done and he can blame himself immensely for that!

Happy Father’s Day and Jim Bunning

leave a comment »

Happy Father’s Day.  This is a great Father’s Day story to share with your father or sons.

Before he became Senator Jim Bunning of Kentucky, he was a good Major League pitcher.  He won 224 games and had a stellar 3.27 career ERA and 3,433 Ks.  Bunning was elected to the Hall of Fame in 1996.

We remember him for something else: what happened one Sunday afternoon many years ago.

On Father’s Day 1964, Jim Bunning of the Phillies threw a perfect game against the Mets in the old Shea Stadium in New York.

It was important, because Bunning knew something about fatherhood.  He and Mrs. Bunning had 9 kids and eventually 35 grandchildren once he was a U.S. senator.

Happy Father’s Day, and remember that fathers matter a lot.

Kick Megan Rapinoe off the team

leave a comment »

FOX and FS-1 are pushing the Women’s World Cup hard.  My guess is that they were not ready for Megan Rapinoe, the social justice warrior who won’t sing the U.S. national anthem or respect her country’s flag.

As could be expected,  Miss Rapinoe blamed it on President Trump.  Can this people get more original than blaming the 45th president?   Someone should remind Megan that lesbian unemployment is low under Trump, too!

This is what she said about her cause:  

Rapinoe, who was the first white athlete to kneel during the national anthem before a sporting event following former NFL star Colin Kaepernick’s decision in 2016, told Yahoo Sports last month she would “probably never sing the national anthem again.”

She said she wasn’t satisfied with the conversation that stemmed from her decision to kneel during the anthem. She expressed her displeasure with U.S. soccer’s statement about the kneeling controversy and the federation’s decision to adopt a rule requiring players to “stand and honor the flag.”  

“Using this blanketed patriotism as a defense against what the protest actually is was pretty cowardly. I think the NFL does it,” she told Yahoo Sports. “I felt like the statement from U.S. Soccer, and then the rule they made without ever talking to me, that was the same as what the NFL was doing — just to not have the conversation, to try to just stop me from doing what I’m doing instead of at least having a conversation, and trying to figure out a [solution] that makes sense for everyone.”

What makes sense for everyone Megan?

Megan, what’s your beef anyway?  

You grew up in a nice family and had the opportunity to play the game you love.  Nobody is stopping you from being a social warrior or promoting whatever lifestyle you want.

The issue is that Megan chose to represent the U.S. in an international event.  The U.S. in which she was super lucky to be born.  Wonder how many young women in the world would trade places with her?

I want the U.S. to win the tournament.  I also want the US flag to be respected.

My advice to Megan is to quit soccer and hit the streets with her marches.

My memo to the U.S. Soccer Federation is to drop Megan and remind everyone  that they represent the U.S., whether or not they like the man in the White House.
