As Pride Month comes to a close, the NFL has released a new commercial that makes clear its support and embrace of the LGBTQ+ community. The 30-second spot begins with the line, "Football is gay" as light cheering plays in the background. "Football is lesbian. Football is beautiful. Football is queer. Football is life. Football is exciting. Football is culture. Football is transgender. Football is queer. Football is heart. Football is power. Football is tough. Football is bisexual. Football is strong. Football is freedom. Football is American. Football is accepting. Football is everything. Football is for everyone."

What they are really saying beyond their virtue signaling is that NFL football is for everyone who can pay their price.

What could be more all-American than two strange men hooking up in a random toilet stall somewhere? The commies made good on agenda item #37 from 1963, "Infiltrate and gain control of big business." A basic tenet of marketing is never to offend your customer or you risk losing them for good, but we're so thoroughly and unapologetically Marxist now that there's nowhere to turn.

Haven't watched in years. No plans to do so in the future so don't really care. The gays demand we celebrate and encourage their lifestyle. Won't happen except for the suck-ups (pun maybe intended) in the media and woke corporations. Most people are live and let live until the woke crowd tries to shove it down their throats. The gay lobby then loses normally nice and unbigoted fans or turns them into anti-guy people. Sometimes the love that dare not speak its name had best shut up. Their antics are creating ill will. They used to say that they just wanted to be left alone but now it's the rest of us who want to be left alone.

Football is not ‘gay’. Football is a sport where whiney assed overpaid athletes are supposed to be entertaining. They assume they have far more social importance than they do. Either perform for the crowds that pay for you or go join BLM, Antifa, or some gay rights group who will love you but not pay you. Your choice. Either disappear or shut up and dance.

Gosh, I always thought football was pretty macho. But, I guess what goes on in the locker room stays in the locker room. Or at least I hope it does. I hope it was worth it to pander to the very small percentage of Americans who are gay, by alienating the guys who like macho football and the women who like to look at all those macho guys.

Many years ago when I was in high school, I met several of the Redskins players at an off-season charity basketball game. Charlie Taylor, Ron McDole, and several others. They were good guys, people that a young person could look up to. It helped me become a Redskins fan, and I watched them or listened to the games on the radio all season. More recently, I see lots of dreadlocks hanging out of NFL helmets, these people look like Thugs, like the 'Uruk-Hai' from the Lord of the Rings movies. Also more and more NFL players were in the news for the wrong reasons (Michael Vick and his Dog-Fighting club, anyone?) The NFL appeared to overlook any criminal behavior of its players/employees/performance cast members, as long as they brought in the CA$H, and in so doing ceased being the National Football League, and morphed into the National Felons League. More recently the Crapernick and kneeling trash has shown that many of the NFL cast members are unpatriotic ingrates, and the administration is evil, corrupt, weak, or all three. I would have thought that the drop in viewership would send this entertainment company a message, that when you insult your audience, they leave, and they take their CA$H with them. Nope,,,,, the National Felons League found that it has No Fans Left. Now with this week's stupidity, they have become the National Fairy League. Where can I turn? I'll tell ya 'where I can turn', or 'What I can turn'. I can Turn it OFF... for GOOD! Hey NFL, watch THIS! 'CLICK!'

Chicago   — A veteran mail carrier is fed up and speaking out – exposing the behind-the-scenes issues affecting mail delivery. (Snip) The carrier, who wants to remain anonymous, believes the severe USPS staffing shortage is partially due to the emergency federal employee leave enacted this year – which gives postal workers up to 600 hours of paid leave for COVID-related reasons. That’s right, 600 hours – roughly four months of paid time off if employees qualify. “There’s rumors that people that’s using that COVID leave don’t need it,” the carrier said. And that’s not all. The carrier said his supervisor told him package delivery is now a priority over first-class mail.

The Holy Trinity Catholic Church in the city's Georgetown neighborhood, which Biden has attended several times since taking office, said Wednesday it will not deny the Eucharist to the president over his abortion stance or "anyone else who presents themselves." "The great gift of the Holy Eucharist is too sacred to be made a political issue," the church’s parish council said.

First Lady Jill Biden — who is featured on the August cover of Vogue after the fashion magazine broke a decades-long tradition by snubbing former First Lady Melania Trump during her four years in the White House — says people can “breathe again,” now that former President Donald Trump is out of office. Mrs. Biden said President Joe Biden came in and “heal[ed] this nation.” “During the campaign, I felt so much anxiety from people — they were scared,” Jill Biden told Vogue. “When I travel around the country now, I feel as though people can breathe again.” “I think that’s part of the reason Joe was elected,” the first lady added.

A month after a gunman killed nine workers at a rail yard in San Jose, the city is taking steps to become the first in the nation to require firearms owners to buy insurance and pay fees to relieve taxpayers of the costs of responding to gun violence. The San Jose City Council voted unanimously Tuesday night to draft an ordinance that would order gun owners in the city to obtain insurance and pay an annual fee to subsidize police responses, ambulances, medical treatment and other municipal expenses related to shootings, injuries and deaths. The amount of the fee hasn’t been determined, but Mayor Sam Liccardo said

President Biden struck an odd tone near the site of the Florida building collapse Thursday as he talked about finding a “good” side to the disaster that left at least 18 dead and nearly 150 missing.“You know what’s good about this?” Biden said at a briefing with local leaders. “It lets the nation know we can cooperate and when it’s really important.” Biden added, “I just got back from 12 days in Europe. You wonder whether we can do this. And you’re doing it. I mean, just the simple act of everybody doing whatever needs to be done.”
Report: Kamala Harris is an awful boss 32 replies

Vice President Mike Pence may be in the doghouse with conservatives but no one can say there were stories that he was a bad boss or that his office was chaotic, mismanaged, or incompetent. Things are different with Kamala Harris. According to an article in Politico, Harris’s office sounds like the real-life version of Veep, the HBO political satire that focused on the stupid, self-centered, and vicious Selina Meyer, a Vice President whose office was filled with slavish gatekeepers and self-centered staff, all of whom were incompetent. The story rings true. What's more interesting is contemplating why Democrats are going after Harris.
Are We Nazi Germany? 31 replies

I've noticed that whenever the subject of Nazi Germany is raised, someone always says something like this: "It's unbelievable that Adolf Hitler was able to manipulate and control the entire German population. It just seems impossible." (snip) Like a lot of Americans, I always assumed that America was safe from the kind of tyranny the German people experienced under the heavy hand of the Third Reich. (snip) Yet, for the past eighteen months, that's exactly what has happened in America. A nation that always prided itself on its independence and individuality was suddenly locked down.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi on Thursday said Rep. Liz Cheney of Wyoming will be the sole Republican on the House's select committee to investigate the fatal January 6 insurrection on the US Capitol. "We're very honored and proud that she has agreed to serve on the committee," Pelosi said of Cheney.Cheney has in many ways been ostracized by her own party for refusing to echo former President Donald Trump's lies about the 2020 election. In May, Republicans ousted Cheney from her leadership post as conference chair. The Wyoming lawmaker stands among the small group Republicans willing to openly criticize Trump.

The office of Vice President Kamala Harris has been rocked by claims that staffers are 'treated like sh**' and that Chief of Staff Tina Flournoy has created 'blame culture.' Tensions started to boil over after Harris finally decided to visit the border last week, blindsiding staffers, according to a Politico report based on interviews with 22 current and former vice presidential aides, officials and associates. Sources described a tense atmosphere with low morale and trust, as well as bad communication, according to the outlet.Flournoy has allegedly created an environment

Baltimore—When Target announced that it was opening a store in Mondawmin, a predominantly Black neighborhood in Baltimore, a city struggling with crime and poverty, it seemed like a ticket to a turnaround. And from the start, it was a practical success and a point of community pride. The store, which opened in 2008, carried groceries, operated a pharmacy and had a Starbucks cafe—the only one in this part of Baltimore's west side.(Snip) But in February 2018, with almost no warning or explanation, Target closed the store. Residents, especially those without cars, lost a convenient place to shop for quality goods.

The U.S. economy is in the middle of an awkward transition. Like a groggy bear roused from hibernation, the country is no longer dormant due to the pandemic but isn’t quite back in full form either. Millions remain unemployed, businesses are having trouble hiring, workers are still avoiding the office, and shortages of everything from lumber to computer chips have helped push up consumer prices.  CORRECTION*
