They are so uneducated to know that Jim Brown (of football fame) was one of the greatest lax players ever. Rule changes were implemented because of him!

Surprised no one has posted about Starbucks and "racial bias". And today I see they are closing for an afternoon to conduct sensitivity training. I dont know, maybe its me, but if a store manager told me to leave if I was not buying something, I would do one of two things. 1) Buy Something. 2) Leave. Pretty simple choices really. If the fne young gentleman would have followed instructions, there would be no fake outrage.

Its time people start laying blame where it should be placed. People need to be held accountable for their own actions. Spare me the racial bias bull sheet rock.

I've read two articles on this. I'd like to know if anything else relevant, that we haven't been told, took place leading up to the video and call for their removal. i.e. were they rude, did they smell bad, or did they have any sort of reputation to local businesses as being troublemakers, harassing women, etc. My instinct tells me there is more to it than we've been told.

The sensitivity training thing for 8,000 stores is, once again, an over-reaction that lacks any kind of proportion or logic. The more sensible solution would be to investigate exactly what took place, and if there is an issue with the way it was handled, deal with that at your individual store. This whole moral panic over racial and gender issues in our society is crippling the ability of many to reason, think, and even do business on a daily basis and has unintended consequences for all of us.

I have always heard people say that freedom of speech is not freedom from consequences. The addendum to that is you do have freedom from consequences if you are a college professor at a liberal, state run university. What a joke. If a conservative spoke about MLK using the same words, he/she/they (trying to be pronoun neutral) would have been fired on the spot.

Can't argue with results. People are employed - and at record levels for African Americans. For all the idiocy the left spews with their overly-PC rhetoric, made-up social injustices, etc., when all is said and done, people will always vote according to their wallets. If the economy and unemployment don't take a dramatic turn for the worse, the Dems have little to no chance of beating Trump in 2020.

I don't know if Trump gets re-elected in 2020. But one thing is nearly certain - if the Democrats had to run against a relatively normal Republican, like Romney or McCain, they would lose, and probably by a lot.

This game of political correctness and identity politics has effectively killed any chances of actually making progress on big ticket issues like climate change and income inequality. The irony is that no one really talks about progressive issues, as much of the media ties themselves in knots over cultural issues or Russia, which plays right into the hands of Democrats. It will be interesting to see if this helps Democrats in '18 and '20, or if too many moderates and all conservatives grow tired of the narrative and vote red or don't vote.

At this point, given the choices, I could see myself leaving the top of the ticket blank next time, and just voting in races far down ticket.

I think more kids should be encouraged to commute to school, especially in an area like this where there are plenty of good schools within ear shot. For starters, they could save a lot of money, and maybe pick up a part time job along the way too which aids in work skills, life skills, and maturity. Also, maybe this serves to cut down on some of the frat culture, partying, drinking, etc, etc, and on another side of it, save some kids from indocrination into the ethno gender political socialist nonsense. So make college more like an actual work experience, where kids have to actually get up in the morning, deal with traffic, get somewhere on time, etc. I'm not saying all kids should do this, but maybe more of them should be encouraged to. There is plenty you can do with your young adult years outside of a college campus.

Truth is, the real world builds resiliency and life skills. It is abundantly clear to me as an educator that kids are not getting these in grade schools or college campuses.

He esteemed senator from NJ Mr Bob Menendez started floating the idea that the Russians are in the process of altering the NJ senate race. Sounds like someone is worried their criminal background could come back to haunt them.

Just wondering....why does the Hollywood elitist lecture us about gun control and limiting guns and then go back to the set of his/her movie set that is loaded with gun violence. Said actor/actress then rakes in millions for shooting "bad guys" on film. Am I the only one who thinks they are hypocritical? Nah, I guess its just me....

Not sure what TDS means, but, lets be honest....the left does not see illegal immigration as an issue, just more votes for them. Good person, bad person, whatever...as long as they pull the Democrat lever at election time, they are welcome with open arms.

Trump Derangement Syndrome.
Honestly the "big blue wave" that these imbecile Dems are touting ain't happening. How could it happen? You can't run an entire campaign as anti Trump. That may attract some in your base but that's all.
