Hear Hear, or is it here, here #1. Whichever, may I add: Get politics out of everything EXCEPT politics! Egads. It's EVERYWHERE. It doesn't BELONG in schools (except poli sci courses), the workplace, churches, entertainment, sports, the news (unless both sides are represented), exercise, travel...It's messing up relationships with families, friends, colleagues... Just.Stop.It.

FTA: MLB claims “the results of the surveys – which are sent via email – aren’t tied to any individual accounts” What?! They're sending the survey to your email after you've attended a game, so it most definitely is tied to your individual account.

This survey comes on the heels of the news about the USPS tracking Trump supporters on social media. And it turns out the USPS can use outside parties to aid them in their efforts. I am beginning to sense a pattern here. People are not afraid to talk about baseball, but maybe they shouldn't. Maybe they shouldn't even watch it. Some idiot in MLB is hoping and praying that there are far more lefties watching baseball than Republicans watching. Really evil in all the basic fundamentals of evil.

Typically, news organizations rush to cover crises, real or perceived. The Associated Press has taken a different tack, using its influential style guide to play down the human drama unfolding at the southern border.While internal Customs and Border Protection documents repeatedly refer to an immigration "surge" at the border, according to records reviewed by the Washington Free Beacon, the AP recommends journalists no longer use such descriptions to avoid offense and maintain supposed "neutrality." Other documents, circulated internally throughout Customs and Border Protection in May, instruct officials on processing "the surge of undocumented individuals as efficiently as possible."

U.S. airlines may begin weighing passengers at gates for flights involving smaller aircraft in order to comply with new Federal Aviation Administration rules aimed at addressing the reality that Americans are getting fatter, according to an industry website.“For safety reasons, carriers need to calculate an aircraft’s weight and balance, and it has to be within allowable limits for the plane,” View From The Wing reported last week. “However the assumptions they’ve been using for passengers are outdated. Americans are getting fatter, and the federal government wants airlines to find out how much fatter their passengers have gotten, at least for smaller aircraft.”

The apparent suicide plunge of U.S. Representative Liz Cheney (R-Wyo.) appears to be the psychopathic backlash of NeverTrumpers who are starting to realize Donald Trump’s defeat in November and the allegations he was attempting to overturn the election by provoking an “insurrection” at the Capitol on January 6 do not bring back the Republican Party of the Bushes and McCain and Romney, as those families seem to imagine. This is only the first shoe dropping. It will soon be followed by the realization of the role the NeverTrumpers have played in shackling the country and the Western world to the unfolding disaster of the Biden presidency.

Host Nicolle Wallace and her frenzied feminist panel spent the first twenty minutes of her show hysterically panicking over news that the Supreme Court would be eventually ruling on a Mississippi abortion law that passed in 2018. The state law bans abortions after 15 weeks where the mother or baby was not in danger. Apparently, that is radical and extreme to the majority of Americans, at least according to MSNBC’s Wallace.

"The vice president and her team tend to dismiss reporters. Trying to get her to take a few questions after events is treated as an act of impish aggression," writes Edward-Isaac Dovere. "And Harris herself tracks political players and reporters whom she thinks don't fully understand her or appreciate her life experience." That list presumably includes the people at Vogue magazine, who managed to enrage libs by putting Harris on the cover earlier this year. It remains unclear why the libs became enraged;

But I pray that he is not available to receive my vote. (snip) Ron DeSantis has proven himself to be the “non-Trump” Trump. He stands for the America First agenda and gets a lot of it done.

Israeli warplanes unleashed another wave of heavy airstrikes on the Gaza Strip Monday, destroying about 60 miles of militant tunnels and the homes of nine Hamas commanders — and also killing a senior Islamic Jihad leader, the military said. IDF spokesman Lt. Col. Jonathan Conricus told reporters Monday that it had assassinated Hussam Abu Harbeed, who commanded Islamic Jihad’s northern Gaza brigade and led attacks against Israeli soldiers and civilians for almost 15 years. In a statement, the IDF said Harbeed “was behind several anti-tank missile terror attacks against Israeli civilians.”

The media went into a frenzy this weekend when the bonny Prince Harry gave a huge harrumph to the First Amendment. On a show appropriately called the "Armchair Expert," Harry declared the First Amendment "bonkers" and expressed frustration about how it protects the media in its "feeding frenzy" over his life. Harry’s criticism of the First Amendment can be dismissed as the unfamiliarity of a royal refugee. However, it is actually far more serious than that. Harry and his American wife Meghan Markle have attacked media rights in England and succeeded under the laws of the United Kingdom. They are now joining a growing anti-free speech movement
Goodyear to phase out petroleum-based

For decades engineers have used petroleum to make everyday products. It's still commonly used in everything from rubbers and plastics to chemicals and asphalt. But this useful product comes from crude oil, which is often criticized by activists and experts as harmful to the environment, citing oil spills and fracking incidents. Recent studies from the last decade have shown that petroleum isn't as efficient as some once thought. Now, companies, engineers and scientists aim to replace it with plant-based oils, specifically soybeans. The Goodyear Tire & Rubber Co. recently announced its goal to replace all petroleum-based products with soybean oil by 2040.
