Trump gives a great or crazy speech at the U N today.

Your view depends on if your the Washington Post or me.

Called Kim Jung Un "Rocketman".

Colbert hosted the Emmy's on Sunday. One Trump joke after another followed by presenters piling on. Lowest ratings for the Emmy's in history.

Rumors Trump leaning left on many items now. Including: the wall, DACA and the Paris Accord.

Crazy as it sounds Merkel may end up Germany's head again.

To be fair here is the other side's views from Gov Jerry Brown. I'm a cave dweller now. https://www.google.com/amp/s/townhall.c ... 3famp=true

Obama wiretapped Trump's campaign chairman before the election. So assuming Trump and his campaign chairman ever talked by phone before the election this would mean that the Trump Tower was wiretapped. Sounds pretty "banana republic" to me. Oh it gets better, his campaign chairman even has an apartment in Trump Tower.

CNN wiggling.

Washington Post says no proof Obama knew about it. No actual wires were tapped, and if Trump's conversations were recorded, it was unintentional, so Trump still lied.

Trump praises health care of Nambia, a nonexistent African country - CNN
https://apple.news/AUpkAqAOhRrqr8Y9G1UYWvQ

CNN has nothing better to do than this on a day when Trump took real action on North Korea.

BTW Trump mentioned Namibia a real country in Africa, but apparently he prounced it without the extra i.

Can do business with North Korea or United States, but not both. So if your a shipping company, your in trouble if you stop in North Korea.

Meanwhile, today I heard a coworker say if Trump cured cancer, the Democrats would say it discriminates against people with a cold.
This is my opinion. There are many like it, but this one is mine.

France threatening to pull out of South Korea Winter Olympic Games.

So will this be viewed as Trump's fault for his rhetoric?

Or was it a dumb idea to have the Olympics in an area that essentially is still at war.

I'd say if the Olympics is cancelled a point would go in Rocketman's or fat kids column. Extra points if this issue continues with country by country pulling out one at a time until it is moved.

France can't guarantee the safety of their athletes in their own country. But it figures they would be first to "surrender" the Olympics.

Trump says boycott NFL teams where a player won't stand for the national anthem. Leave the game if it happens. Owner's should fire the player.

http://nypost.com/2017/09/23/trump-resc ... ite-house/

Trump rescinds Stephen Curry's invitation to the White House. Apparently the winning basketball team has been invited to the White House. The team votes on whether they will accept the invitation. Curry said publicly he would vote against it. So the White House has rescinded his invitation.

Some of us only dream of a Presidential invitation to the White House for something we had done. Clinton, Bush, Obama, Trump wouldn't have mattered. For 99.9% of us it is something that will never happen. It is hard to even imagine that kind of attitude.

Me thinks sports salaries are way too high. If I was a billionaire and owned a sports franchise, I would be worried about my "investment". Especially if it was a football franchise in a blue state.

I pay a special higher federal tax rate due to my type of job. Seems to me, although I'm never a supporter of higher federal taxes, we could have a special excess sports income tax. A special higher rate for sports income. How about a 75% rate above 1 million. Ear mark the tax to feeding the poor. Seems only fair. Hmm, a special tax rate for actors and late night talk show hosts.... Ear mark it for healthcare for the poor.

"Me thinks sports salaries are way too high."

Sigh.

No one is forced to follow sports...or watch hollywood movies or listen to someone sing, act or dance, but if the public is gullible enough to provide astronomical wealth to athletes and other entertainers because they like what these folks have to offer...great.

Me, I have almost zero interest in sports, singers, and most movies. So, I've nothing to complain about regarding those who fund these entertainers - it's the free enterprise system.

P.S. These entertainers and their political or religious or fill in the blank opinions mean nothing to me. If the world fell apart (as in the after math of hurricane destruction) who do you think would be in demand, entertainers or people who can fix things...? Entertainers are only for amusement, but are completely useless otherwise...

Wow Trumps remarks on disrespecting the United States has really hit a nerve with the NFL.

They have gone all in. Apparently the whole team took a knee in a game in England.

Steelers wont have a national anthem anymore before the game.

Trump has suggested a boycott of the NFL.

Team owners are arm in arm with players taking a knee.

Won't affect me I stopped watching NFL after Colin started doing it. I'll let the globalist liberals watch all they want.

Only in America could millionaires claim they're oppressed and be taken seriously.
When plunder becomes a way of life for a group of men in a society,
over the course of time they create for themselves a legal system that authorizes it
and a moral code that glorifies it. - Frédéric Bastiat

This is the last part of our national anthem:

O thus be it ever when freemen shall stand
Between their lov'd home and the war's desolation!
Blest with vict'ry and peace may the heav'n rescued land
Praise the power that hath made and preserv'd us a nation!
Then conquer we must, when our cause it is just,
And this be our motto - "In God is our trust,"
And the star-spangled banner in triumph shall wave
O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave.

People against our national anthem are protesting against GOD who blessed America. They disrespect those who died in service for our country. This is more than political but a battle between good and evil. :patriot:

I stopped watching sports and all the overpaid prima donnas years ago. I have better things to do than sit in front of the idiot box and go brain dead.

Should I expect to see more SJW wearing team jerseys as a political statement against Trump?

Or is it still primarily a way for herd animals to self identify their herd affiliation? :mrgreen:
