Troll, while knicks and I may have our differences, I think we can agree on one thing, that you are an indecent piece of shit.

Thanks for proving my point. Peddie.

Why can't we all just get along?

Oh, yeah.

Because we in our tribes!


Go, Sox!

Let's go, Mets!

Red State.

Blue State.



German. French. Virginia, West Virginia.

Evangelical. Catholic, Jew, Baptist, Methodist, Presbyterian, Hindu, Muslim, Taoist, Maoist...

This side of the river! That side!

That's part of the issue, for sure.

But the real issue is people like Knicks and Banks, both of whom think they know everything, and both of whom can't stand letting anyone else have the last word.

Which is where I come in. My primary purpose here is to unite you all.

That is my role, and for that I am glad. Peacemaker of sorts, since you can all, at the end of the day agree on one thing.

Hating Utley!

You may now all do what Chris Carlin told Fatso and Fruit Loops to do.

See ya!

Looks like the Pats have Brady's replacement:

Or maybe it's Gronk's?

Washington, D.C., councilman Trayon White said a $500 donation to the Nation of Islam was meant to show his appreciation for local black men who have helped him to reach and help local youth.

White, already under fire for saying on Facebook that rich Jews control the weather and for leaving an organized tour of the U.S. Holocaust museum, said he donated $500 to the Nation of Islam’s Saviours’ Day gathering in Chicago from his constituent services fund because two local members asked him to.

His treasurer told The Washington Post, which first reported the donation, that the councilman had ordered him to cut the check. The constituent services funds is made up of private money raised by lawmakers to help the residents of their districts.

At the convention, Farrakhan made anti-Semitic comments, including calling “powerful Jews” his enemy and blaming Jews in Hollywood for the existence of transgender people.

White made a Facebook Live video on Saturday to defend himself against the fallout from recent events. “I’m under constant attack,” White said at the beginning of the 35-minute video.

He addressed the Rothschilds controlling the weather incident by saying that he did not know that it was an anti-Semitic canard. “But I said my apologies and I am done with that,” he continued.

White asserted that he did not leave a tour for him and his staff of the U.S. Holocaust museum early, but rather went ahead with a staff member for part of the time because “a reporter was following me.”

White said of the Nation of Islam donation that when he is called to the scene of a homicide or a crime involving a young black man, that he often gets assistance from the Brothers Huddle, and that several of those men are adherents of the Nation of Islam and Louis Farrakhan.

White said he has gotten support from the Jewish community and singled out the progressive organization Jews United for Justice. The group on Friday issued a statement calling on White to request a refund for the donation to the Nation of Islam.

You're offended by my use of Remus as a tongue in cheek reference after you a red-neck sterotype to blame white people for Trump?


And you're the guy who refused to see the anti-semitism in Jay Z's and bent into a pretzel to rationale it as a lesson for money management for rappers?


Your hypocrisy and denial is mind numbing.


Kong riding the bomb was an analogy. You calling me Uncle Remus was a personal insult. That you don’t see that redoes harm to your argument about my hypocrisy.

Why aren’t you concerned about JayZ using cooning stereotypes in the same song?

The discussion at the time was Jay Z's use of an anti-semitic lyric.

2 wrongs don't make a right.

Nor does you changing the subject to making yourself the victim

I use a caricature the same way as you did.

you offended me by calling white people "red-necks"

and some how you think your use of a broad-based slur is ok.

your hypocrisy grows by the minute.

Gotta say it. Knicks was wrong on Jay-z, but it's good to hear he's taking action down there in Ward 7 or 8 and getting that BAMA outta there.
21  National / Bush Administration / Re: Bush Administration on: April 25, 2018, 03:26:14 PM
I know you are but what am I? Tbat was seriously the best you could do?
All I needed since you cannot identify any problem, only throw insults at me.

22  National / Bush Administration / Re: Bush Administration on: April 25, 2018, 03:23:55 PM
Knicks that really wasn't much of a rebuttal.

I'm sorry if the facts as presented and analyzed are giving you a hard time. And I'm sorry if the math and logic puzzles you.

Its unfortunate you feel bullied by facts and analysis that put your opinions deep in doubt.

But I tried to help you through the maze.

At least you realized you are tainted with predjudice, its a start to hopefully becoming more open-minded

And Remus perhaps you and Slim Pickens can discuss your insecurity, myopia and bigotry.

Again best of luck

White people voting for Trump is akin to Kong riding the bomb in Strangelove. That is what set you off on this rant.

But show me the lie about that observation, Banks.

There was no rant. I posted after reading several of your posts.

And I used a southern fictional character just like you used a southern fictional character to make your point.

And I explained this to you earlier when you missed the connection and automatically assumed bad intentions on my part.

I was going for hypocrisy on your part. you think Aunt Jemima and Uncle Sanders would get it on?

Anyone know what's the over/under for rescheduled games in MLB due to weather this year?

Why is there racism?

Unfortunately it may be original equipment installed a long time ago and its hard to uninstall.

And it relates to your interesting observation about women, their hormonal changes during pregnancy, and their maternal instincts to protect the child they are carrying.

Both are genetic codes for self-preservation.

We are tribal in nature, and wary of the unfamiliar. Color of skin, the regional difference in speech. different languages, different dieties we worship, even the different teams caps we wear. (Go Sox). That which is foreign (and in first place) scares us and represents a threat.

And it takes a lot of learning to de-program that code.

So some learn to de-program, other learn to rationalize the fear, because fear of skin color or a foreign language is just fucking dumb.

So it becomes:

They're gonna steal our women.

They're money grubbing Christ-killers.

They're lazy.

They're rapists and drug-dealers.

America has often been referred to as the melting pot, where lots of cultures and ethnicities have come together. We are the lab experiement to see if over the long-term we can successfully deprogram the fear inside of us, and people of vareid backgrounds can live and thrive together.

I think we've made half-decent progress over the past 50 years dealing with a genetic code dealt to us a gazillion years ago, but it might take a few more generations to get all the bugs out.


So, knicks can't help but hate white people and particularly Jews because it's in his genes?

Not even you can be this dumb.

Oh, look! The bigot knicks got a job writing sports:

Lamar Jackson won't be the first quarterback to have his name called Thursday night during the first round of the NFL Draft.

In fact, it's possible he won't be drafted in the first round at all.

Because only in 2018 America can a player with a resume like Jackson's not be considered as one of the best overall prospects in the draft, but also told that he should play a different position.

However, racism is a powerful drug. So strong it can convince some people that a football player who has only played quarterback his whole career should give it up...Out of the top 12 quarterback prospects in this year's draft, Jackson is the only one who's black. He's also the only one who has been told he should change positions because he's such a great "athlete."

From Doug Williams being the first black quarterback to win a Super Bowl in 1988, in which he set two passing records to go along with his MVP — to Buffalo Bills quarterback Tyrod Taylor being benched in the middle of last season for a moderately talented white quarterback in the middle of a playoff race for no reason, black quarterbacks are still fighting with the stigmas and overt racism that come along with playing the most glamorized position in all of sports.

As the old African-American proverb goes, "You have to be twice as good as them to get half of what they have."

Francesa returning to FAN:

"It is time to return to WFAN," Francesa told Best, adding, "I have been working on a project with (entertainment and sports agency) CAA for months. That will be explained in the days ahead. ... I will do everything to work WFAN into an integral part of the project."

Francesa didn't offer specifics, but he also referenced a nefarious-sounding "campaign" to prevent him from returning to WFAN in his interview with Best -- one that seems to have given the big guy the necessary motivation to rejoin the station after he left in December following a long farewell tour.

"This is for those who started this campaign in recent days. I didn't decide to go back to WFAN until I was told I better not go back," Francesa said. "For those behind it, that was the moment I decided to return."

Well, I certainly can relate to that!

Sox no hit.

28  Sports / Baseball / Re: American League on: April 22, 2018, 05:45:41 PM
Phillies sweep Bucs. Another 1-run are alright.

Notice has been served.

Looks like Boston's efforts to buy a championship with that ridiculous MLB leading payroll is working out so far.

Meanwhile, in the league where they still play baseball, there are two very young teams making a lot of noise. The Braves and Phillies have their kids competing quite well, and they look like the teams of the near future. That NL East among the best divisions to watch this year.

Harper can only do so much. He sure misses D. Murphy.

Pirates getting great pitching, and solid play from their young team, and still have the best stadium in all of baseball.

D'backs have the worst unis, look like prison jumpsuits, but winning, much to the LA D's chagrin.
Chagrin Ravine.

And my Yankees fan friends are already missing Joe Giarardi.

Love the transitional years.

Machado will look good in red pinstripes next season, hitting behind Rhys Lightning and the King.

But let's just enjoy 2018, first.

Ciao, front-runners.
