J-E-T-S are B-E-S-T

The Jets might stink as a football team, but at least they showed some character and decency as human beings over the weekend:  "They stood side-by-side linked arm-in-arm as the national anthem was sung at MetLife Stadium on Sunday. Not a single Jet took a knee or staged his own individual protest over President Trump’s disparaging comments and tweets about the NFL and its players.  The Jets had decided during a team meeting Saturday night that if nothing else, they would be unified in their message and when chairman and CEO Christopher Johnson joined them on the sideline the Jets suddenly became better than anyone could have imagined."

On the other hand, you have this:  "Many people heralded Pittsburgh Steeler football player Alejandro Villanueva as a hero for standing up during the national anthem…. Today, not-so-much.
Unfortunately, today Villaneuva says he was embarrassed to stand for the U.S. flag and National Anthem; and he apologized to his team and coach for not supporting their decision to stay in the locker room." Apologized? For doing the right thing? The only thing he should be embarrassed about is his about-face!

Differences Between Left and Right

Per former pitcher and known conservative Curt Schilling:  

“The left is about your race, your sex, your sexual preference, your identity, who you worship, who you don´t worship, who you want to sleep with whether you are in transit, they are all about identity politics, every decision they make, every chaos, every event they create is around one of those factors if not more.

"The right, we are about legal and illegal. Is it lawful? Are you a law- abiding citizen? I don´t care what color you are. If you are a law-abiding citizen, I´m okay with that. If you are not, I´m not."

Here's this week's news roundup, courtesy of Larwyn's Linx, Maggie's Farm, and Betsy's Page.

If you haven't watched any of Ken Burns' documentary "The Vietnam War", you're missing another compelling film.  I won't be watching the reruns of this one over and over like I did "The Civil War", but this is probably the best thing on TV right now. Seeing the anti-war protesters made me as angry now as I was back then, and I can't understand why tourists would waste their money visiting Vietnam today.

Another excellent documentary was "Inside the Vietnam War", which I saw years ago on the National Geographic Channel and would want to see again.

Triumph At The U.N.

Boy, was it ever great to hear tough talk rather than apologies at the United Nations! 

Joseph Klein on Trump: "The U.S. president explained his 'American First' principles in some detail and put the rogue nations of North Korea, Iran and Venezuela on notice that their misdeeds would have serious consequences.   A globalist appeaser is clearly no longer in the White House."

Netanyahu:  "Speaking directly to the genocidal leader of Iran, Netanyahu said,  'The light of Israel will never be extinguished. Those who threaten us with annihilation put themselves in mortal peril. Israel will defend itself with the full force of our arms and the full power of our convictions.'"

Socialism For All

Here's a great line from Stephen Green on Bernie Sanders' Medicare for all scheme:  "'Single payer,' as I never tire of reminding people, is code for 'single decider.'”

Empty Barrels

This describes the ridiculous "antifa" protesters as well as all other loud, whining, immature fools who are leaping on the white supremacist bandwagon. Their ten minutes of fame will soon run out, and they'll move on to the next fad.

For He's a Jolly Bad Fellow

It's ironic how "Chelsea" Manning was offered the title of fellow at Harvard, and it was just as strange to hear the reporters at Fox News refer to him as "she" and "her". Why legitimize him? And does anyone remember that he's a actually a traitor named Bradley Manning?

Here's the latest great issues of Betsy's Page, Larwyn's Linx, and Maggie's Farm.

Bonus: "Folsom School Warns ‘USA’ Chant Could Send ‘Unintended Message’."  I have an unintended message for you: get out!

If you like your capitalism, you can't keep your capitalism: Of course Democrats are all supporting Bernie Sanders' socialist "Medicare for All" idea. After all, it will result in more people voting Democrat, since it's supposedly free, and free is a good thing for Democrats.  "Sanders touts his 'Medicare for all' as the solution to all our nation's health care woes. No more premiums, no more deductibles or copays, no provider networks. The government would pick up all the costs, except for possibly minimal copays for prescription drugs. Private insurance would be effectively outlawed."
The Republicans had better start preparing to fight against this with a lot more enthusiasm than they have had when fighting for the repeal of Obamacare, and fighting for Trump's agenda!

Excuses for Everything

Remember personal responsibility? Remember when people used to know the difference between right and wrong?  Now you just say that nothing is ever your fault, that everyone is wrong except you, and that if you don't agree that anything goes, you're evil.

The latest examples are Hillary Clinton blaming women for her defeat; and some author named Sarah Jaffe who says that cracking down on looters in Florida is of course another sign of 'white supremacy."  This lefty insanity is just another fad by angry, bored losers and will soon fade away when even the liberal media realizes how ridiculous they sound. You're supposed to be adults, so act like it!
