The players, management, and executives of the National Basketball Association care very deeply about social justice issues. Just ask them, and you’re sure to get an earful. Ask LeBron James about his thoughts on Black Lives Matter and he’s certain to go into a lengthy rant about his all-in support for the group and the movement. Ask league commissioner Adam Silver about his commitment to LGBTQ causes, and you’ll likely hear a lengthy lecture about his commitment including that time he pulled the league’s All-Star game out of Charlotte to protest North Carolina’s reasonable bathroom bill. The NBA even has a strong opinion on the 2nd Amendment,


Rumor has it, the NBA playoffs are currently going on. But, does anyone even care?

That's okay. The NBA (and WNBA) are basically personna non gratta in our house. And I used to be a season ticket holder with the San Antonio Spurs. Now, who cares? At least Michael Jordan understood that people he disagreed with were customers for his sneakers. I can live with that.

This is no surprise. Countries run by blacks tend to be dictatorial and violent.

NBA has sold out to thug governments for money. I was never much of a fan of the game of BBall, and when the inner city thugs took over the game, I became actively repelled by the sport. Now.....well, I already don't watch, actually never have, so can't decrease my viewership since it has been zero for decades.

My viewership of NBA games for the past 10+ years is Zero (0) and I will continue without a break. I would even pass if offered a courtside ticket to our local team (The $$$$$) if I was required to attend.

They can go play with their balls on their own dime. They won't get ONE of mine! Other than that, the only way I could care less about the 'Men Playing Children's Games' branch of the Entertainment Industry is if I made a conscious effort to not care..... but that's too much effort.

It appears that newsroom managers have warned reporters against voicing their personal views on abortion as the Supreme Court potentially stands on the cusp of overturning Roe v. Wade. According to a recent Vanity Fair report, certain news outlets have taken a markedly different tone than the one they employed during the Black Lives Matter protests over the death of George Floyd. For instance, during the height of the protests/riots of 2020, Axios chief executive Jim VandeHei told employees in a company-wide memo that they were encouraged to exercise their “rights to free speech, press, and protest.”

Inflation is now not only running high but it has broadened to an economy-wide phenomenon. Even the kitchen table itself is more expensive.

There are certain demographics that are critical for the success of Republicans and Democrats. For instance, if Republicans want to succeed at the ballot box they must do well with evangelical Christians and non-college-educated white men. If they perform poorly with those two groups, they’re going to have a rough time on Election Day. Similarly, Democrats rely on college-educated single white women, Hispanics, and black folks. If they lose significant ground in any of those identity groups, they’re likely going to be in trouble. The way things are looking right now, Democratic support has eroded considerably in not just one of those demographics, but two.

Abbott described the border as a “total disaster” and called it “the worst” he had ever seen. “As you know, it’s a total disaster — not only by President Biden and his administration but by the Democrats across the board,” Abbott declared. “And we have a President of the United States who has not negotiated with the president of Mexico.

Harvard Law professor emeritus Laurence Tribe said Thursday on MSNBC’s “Deadline” that former President Donald Trump could face criminal prosecution for espionage while discussing reports that the Department of Justice is investigating Trump’s handling of classified material. Tribe said, “When we find all of this apparent top secret information finding his way to unsecured boxes to Mar-a-Lago, it’s very encouraging that the Department of Justice isn’t simply asking who packed the boxes, but what did the president then of the United States on his way out of the Oval Office have in mind in taking that information?

Liberal, Democratic Party-aligned strategists, pollsters, and think tank experts spent six months coming up with the “ultra MAGA” label that President Joe Biden has begun to deploy against Republicans ahead of a difficult midterm election. The Washington Post reported Friday: Biden’s attempt to appropriate the “MAGA” brand as a political attack was hardly accidental. It arose from a six-month research project to find the best way to target Republicans, helmed by Biden adviser Anita Dunn and by the Center for American Progress Action Fund, a liberal group.

A Wisconsin mom shared her horror after her 13 year-old son was accused of sexual harassment for refusing to refer to a non-binary schoolmate with 'they/them' pronouns. Rosemary Rabidoux hit out after her son Bradon became one of three eighth grade schoolboys at Kiel Middle School subjected to an ongoing probe. It was triggered after they chose not to use the gender neutral pronoun for their unidentified classmate, who they instead referred to using 'she' and her'. Things appear to have escalated quickly with the school district now filing a Title IX complaint against the students, accusing them of sexual harassment for using the 'incorrect' pronouns.
