I suppose I should be thrilled that the U.S. Women's soccer team won its second world title but I confess to rooting for all their opponents during the games. I don't particularly care for soccer anyway but it was the purple-haired star player Megan Rapinoe who turned me off by spouting her disdain for any White House visit before she was even asked. Did she do that for publicity or was her Trump derangement too deeply entrenched? Stomping on the American flag even accidentally during the World Cup celebration was more proof of her unworthiness to represent our great country.

Me too, Alicia. "I grow humans. What's your superpower?" While I didn’t grow my daughter but adopted her, when raising her as a stay at home mom I was frequently asked if I worked and I always responded that I had the most important job on the planet - raising a child.

In other words, #4, your daughter grew in your heart instead of under it. You are, indeed, a superhero for providing that child a family and a loving home. Never doubt that!

You can't fix stupid, even though it makes you an Enemedia Idol. Rapinoe wasn't ashamed to "come out" as a deranged Trump-hater. Wonder what she's still too ashamed to come out as...?

Brilliant, as usual for Alicia! "Feminism", as it is currently passed off, is all about getting even and giving pay-back for hurts real and imagined. It should be about nothing more than being treated fairly ... no matter who you are. If I was blessed with a daughter, I would not allow anyone to tell her she couldn't be a fireman, cop, in the military, play ball, etc. simply BECAUSE she was a girl. If she could meet a set and fair standard, then all doors should be open to her. "Equal pay for equal work" really only applies on an assembly line type of situation where everything can be measured. In sports, entertainment, art, etc. if no one pays to see you --- why should you be paid what the man makes in salary when thousands (if not millions) more want to see him play/act/sing/ etc? He pulls in millions of dollars for the work he does ... but the comparable woman no one wants to watch makes one-third. But she wants to be paid "the same" as the man. Why? The commercials for the men's World Cup soccer raised about $480 billion worldwide while the woman's raised less than a billion dollars.

Does Rapinoe understand how unattractive she is? It shows every time she opens her mouth. Full of mindless hate. Her 15 minutes are just about up once the left and their media dogs are finished using her.

Megan whatshername is a showboater. It’s all about Megan. She doesn’t give a damn about the team except as she considers it an extension of (or backdrop for?) her and her self-purported wonderfulness. She and her WNBA partner are part of a group that appears to be lesbianizing women’s sports. Good luck with that… the ultimate turnoff.

Jaelene Hinkle, a wonderful soccer player and a black woman wasn't picked for the team. She is a Christian who didn't want to wear a pride jersey and thinks marriage should be between one man and one woman. If the women's all-white soccer team had been believing Christians or Jews, the press would be all over them, condemning them for their hate. But they are down with the gay so that covers a multitude of sins. We are living in crazy town.

Annoying as it is, I am glad these liberals are coming out as brazenly as they are - all of their hatred, arrogance, cruelty and intolerance is on full display for America to see. Megan was as offputting as can be. Turned a National Championship into a political tirade. So be it.

Alicia Colon never fails to be the sharp gleam of intelligence giving interest even to the dullest dumbed-down day. A talent I hope will keep us enriched for many years to come! Good to learn, to, about Gal Gadot's witty maxim. It reminds me of how Elizabeth Anscombe of Cambridge University --- arguably the greatest woman philosopher of all time, and multi-mother --- reacted when some of her philosophy students wrote on a blackboard, "Anscombe Breeds." This was after she had given birth to her seventh. Anscombe, a Catholic, didn't take offense. She simply added to it so it read "Anscombe Breeds Immortal Beings."

There is equal pay for equal work. Some people just don't like how equal work is determined. When you are in the entertainment field the customers define who's work is of what value. What Megan Rapinoe wants is for an elite government official to overrule the free will of the people. I'm sorry darling but your fellow citizens aren't all that into you and the answer isn't to force them to succumb to your will. You lost to 15 year old boys for chrissakes, you think you are of equal market value as an athlete? And I want to play in the lingerie football league and if they don't pay me as much as the other players it's because they are bad people not because there's no market to watch old fat slow men play football in drag.

For me soccer as entertainment ranks somewhere between bowling and curling. It's people in shorts running up and down a field trying to kick a ball into a goal. Once in a blue moon the ball goes into the hole and they hug each other for 10 minutes. But if you enjoy this don't let a few flakes spoil it for you. I enjoy football which is just jocks running into each other. But I don't let the idiots who want to use their jockdom to bore me with their politics spoil it for me. Whenever I see someone who has dyed their hair it reminds me of when I was little and my Mother would give me and my sister baby chickens that had been dyed for Easter. Am not pro chicken but I wouldn't do that to anyone or anything.

There are many of us out here who wish that the Rapinoe beast had tripped over our flag, broken her chicken legs in three places and never played soccer again. The phrase "dumb jocks" has been around for a long time but only in the past two or three years have sports stars proven it's veracity so clearly.

Megan Rapinoe should take off her US jersey and wear a rainbow one with her own image on it. Except there's no money in that. She only gets paid if she wears the red white and blue and plays for the American team. There's a word for what they call girls who perform acts they detest for money. Wait a minute, it will come to me...

It’s really sad because they - at least the face of the team - seems to think that in order to be respected as strong women, she needs to speak and behave in coarse, arrogant ways. What’s Ugly on men is ugly on women. They are controlled by their pride and self-centeredness and anger. The only answer is Jesus. So I lift them up in prayer, all who are so inflicted, now that my own anger and disgust has dissipated because I remember I have been pretty ugly myself many times. Lord, have mercy upon these women who are controlled by sinful hearts and may Your Spirit fall on their hearts and make them know they are in need of a Savior, so that they turn and follow Him and are saved, and grow in His image. In Christ’s Name I pray.

The reality of the matter is purple haired Meghan is on a national team that was recruited from a population of over 325 million people in the USA that defeated a foreign national team in the finals of the World Championships that was recruited from a population of about 17 million people, the Netherlands. That fact alone was bound to result in a great imbalance of on field talent favoring the USA team. That is not being talked about in the US media, because the USA turned out to be the winner. It’s just common sense that no professional sports league could survive for very long if their teams had such a great imbalance of talent that equates to a top ten college football team playing a top ten high school football team. But all that was not the fault of the US woman’s soccer team.

With dirt, they can weigh hundreds of pounds. The makeshift planter boxes are Peter Mozgo’s creations — roughly 140 of them lined up on the sidewalk to prevent homeless people from pitching tents outside his business. Mozgo acquires the boxes from a Bell Gardens company that imports ginger, paints them firetruck red, pays $120 per cubic yard for dirt and then uses a $900 trailer to haul it all back to his neighborhood on the south end of downtown Los Angeles. Like many L.A. residents and business owners, the 49-year-old says he is frustrated by the growing homelessness crisis — and the city’s often uneven response to it.

Jeffrey Epstein carefully cultivated a circle of prestigious and powerful friends by exploiting the aura of money and mystery that surrounded him — but the hint of a dark side was always there. Now, in the wake of his blockbuster arrest on child sex trafficking charges, some of those high-flying former pals may be quaking in their boots. During a news conference Monday announcing Epstein’s indictment, Manhattan US Attorney Geoffrey Berman dramatically pointed to the suspect’s mug shot on a poster, and the FBI’s New York chief, William Sweeney Jr., urged anyone who has been “victimized” or “has additional information” on the multimillionaire financier to immediately call the feds.

This article does not take a position on the substantive positions of President Trump; this article just attempts to bring those positions to the attention of the people, so they can vote as they see fit based on who actually serves their personal interests.

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) and the Democratic Party have been peddling some serious allegations about the detention facilities housing illegal aliens at the southern border.

Yes, it is—because these same clowns said that the border crisis and the horde of illegals swarming the border was a manufactured crisis peddled by the Trump White House. Nope.
