This Is Madness

***Just a quick little disclaimer – sometimes I use naughty words when I write. Proceed at your own risk, or leave.  I don’t care.***


Every once in a while, I wake up, not expecting to do any writing, then I start reading the news and that all goes to shit. Today was one of those days.

I began reading about the latest topics dividing our country when I ran across the hashtag #TexasTaliban. First, I thought “my god, the Taliban has come to Texas!”. Then I kept reading and thought “surely this must be a joke and can’t possibly be one of the top trending items in our world – especially on a platform like Facebook or Twitter that have been SO committed to eliminating hate speech”. But I was wrong…so wrong.

It's Time To Admit I was Wrong

After years of dishonesty, both with myself and with all of you, I must come clean. Part of being an adult is being able to admit when you are wrong, and for me, the time for that is now.

I believe that Joe Biden won the 2020 election fair and square, garnering the most votes for any candidate, ever. This being despite overwhelming efforts by Republicans, Russia (including Vladimir Putin), Donald Trump, and countless right wing extremist allies, to commit voter fraud and steal the election.

Our Bumbling Response to the Unemployment Crisis

How many people in our country can financially afford to go 5+ weeks without a paycheck?

A study in 2017 said 78% of our country lives paycheck to paycheck. Another study showed that 57% of people have less than $1,000 to their name.

So why are we not addressing just how difficult it is now to get approved for unemployment benefits? If 78% of our country can't afford to miss even one paycheck, why are we not pouring all our resources into making it as easy as possible to transition from regular employment to unemployment benefits? 

I lost my job due to COVID on June 25th. I received my last paycheck immediately after that and have not received a dime since then. Yet when I applied for unemployment, my claim was rejected. No reason was given - it just simply stated that I was ineligible.

Chick-Fil-A's Attempt to Appease the Belligerent Left

Chick-Fil-A is attempting to appease a clientele that will not be appeased. They should be able to see this from past situations with other companies. The liberal left in this country loves to hate and boycott.

When they get what they demand, they don’t sit down and say “oh okay great, we got what we wanted, so now we can be happy and support them!”

Instead, when they get what they demand, they just demand more. They demand donations and reparations to the organizations that support their beliefs. They demand public apologies for their past “transgressions”. Then they close in and demand the company or person disassociate themselves with even more groups they don’t agree with.

Dale Hansen Hates America


Guest post by Drew Rellim

You may find this surprising, but I hate to write about politics. Discuss it? Yes. Give my opinion and let people know what I believe and why? Sure. But I do not like discussing and opining on things that are tough to talk about. I write for a college sports blog because it is an escape from how hard life can be for everyone. During the fall, I can have the roughest week in the world, but I look forward to Saturdays where I can take the hour drive to my college town and catch up with all friends. Black and White, Democrat and Republican, Christian or agnostic, these people are my friends and fellow alums and we all bleed the same school colors. I also have always kept my blog politics and religion-free because despite my deeply held convictions and beliefs, I want my blog to be a place of unity and not divisiveness.

However, I am deviating from that today because it is time that someone responds to a person on the left who race-baits, mocks Christian morality, and uses his time as a sportscaster to pontificate in a self righteous manner to his viewers who he looks down upon, and that man is Dale Hansen. He never lets a tragedy pass without trying to pass on some great faux wisdom from his liberal worldview. He openly mocks and attacks the President (something he would NEVER have had the courage to do in with the previous President), and honestly believes that the people who pay to listen to him cover sports give a plug nickel's worth of care about what he thinks in the social and political scene.

10 Essential Components of Effective Immigration Reform

A few days ago, I published the first part of my article discussing immigration reform, “Enough With The Outrage – Fix Immigration!”. Hopefully you already read it, but if not, maybe go check it out!

So what is the answer to our immigration problem? What kind of solution would address the issues at hand, without being entirely partisan (even though we all know that democrats will vote against anything that doesn’t give them every single thing they want)?

Well, while the rest of you idiots were freaking out about President Trump maybe using a naughty word to describe another country, I’ve taken the liberty of finding the solution for you. You’re welcome.

Enough With The Outrage – Fix Immigration!

As the “OMG he called 3rd world countries shitholes!” debacle rages on, I can’t help but feel like we are wasting valuable time that could be better used to negotiate an immigration deal. Or I don’t know...maybe even figure out how to prevent a government shutdown next week? But alas, that is not how we do things these days. If there’s anything negative to say about Trump, that’s what everyone is going to focus on. But hey, in case you outraged degenerates stop to take a breath and consider getting back to things that actually matter, I figured I’d take a moment to discuss what I see as the solution to our immigration problem.

President Trump (damn I LOVE saying that!) has been preaching the need for a merit-based immigration system ever since he was a candidate. And I think if liberals weren’t so focused on opposing him at every turn, they just might see the potential benefits it could have.
