In the history of mankind, many republics have risen, have flourished for a less or greater time, and then have fallen because their citizens lost the power of governing themselves and thereby of governing their state. TR

The president is in Washington. He has no publicly scheduled events.

  1. Football today, all day.
    Nobody asked us, football fans, about the kneeling kefuffle and what it means or how it affects us.
    IMO, we don’t care if spoiled Black athletes want to make a statement about the , um, state of Black criminals and the length of their sentences. Truth be told, we don’t really care all that much about all the Black protests of what they see as racism in every White person’s every breath.
    We did what was right and hopefully would even the odds of success for all people with the Civil Rights acts and all of the special cutouts for those who had been wronged. If they choose to forego those benefits and continue to whine or protest or burn down their neighbor hoods then it becomes tiresome and futile to care anymore.
    Get over it. Take care of yourselves and your families and your neighborhoods. Quit looking to White people to make your life better or more prosperous or whatever you think Whites can do for you and yours.
    Take responsibility on yourself and quit blaming others.

    1. Abraham Lincoln:
      I am not nor ever have been in favor of making voters or jurors of Negroes, nor of qualifying them to hold office, nor to intermarry with white people; and I will say in addition to this that there is a physical difference between the white and black races which I believe will for ever forbid the two races living together on terms of social and political equality. And inasmuch as they cannot so live…..

    2. Have any of these uppity Black “protests” ever mention the weekly weekend mass-murders of Blacks-on-Blacks in the ghettos of Chicago? (“Barack Hussein Obama’s” hometown…)

  2. The problem with many blacks and poor people is they look at the glass of water and see it half empty. They focus on the half empty part. They are upset at what they don’t have. I’d say come here and see many who have no electricity , no running water, no indoor toilet, no refrigerator or food pantry, and not knowing where the next meal comes from. And no hope that they can improve their lives. The half full people are thankful for what they have and think in terms is how they can fill up the glass.

    The half empty people have their Jesse Jacksons, Al Sharptons, Rev. Wrigths and Michael Moores. They blame the doers of the world. It is all negative.

    These NFL players have an average salary of over $2 million/year. Why can’t they be thankful? I’d like to send them to Venezuela or Cuba who have leaders who think they can make life fair for all. They are all equal in that they are all living a miserable life. If life was fair I’d be tall, dark and handsome like a Hollywood actor. I am happy the way I am.

    I watched the beginning of Thursday Night Football. They skipped the National Anthem.

    1. The owners and the networks that broadcast the games are terrified of what these several dozen Black players started and the fans reactions to it.
      Their protests would be better received if most of America agreed with them and their allegations, but that’s not how it is.
      It’s the wrong gesture, the wrong venue, and it hurt an American tradition much like the student protests have hurt their own college prestige and approval.

      The liberals believe that “most” of America is with them, facts and results be damned because the MSM tells them it is so.
      The same goes for the mouthy entertainers who believe that people who follow their careers will blindly accept their opinions on everything.
      I could add the Obamas who think his 8 years was the brightest years of the decade because the MSM says it’s so.
      Yeah, no it isn’t.

        1. That must be disappointing to King Barry…I recall him “objectively” placing himself in the top 4 with the likes of Lincoln, Kennedy and FDR.

  3. As the NFL players continue to publicly act out at football games, trying to convince us they care about the civil rights of others, that they’ve been somehow victimized by someone or other, how awful this country is, we have this–the list of 870 arrests of NFL players from 2000 to September 2017.

    Oh, the NFL players have done it all: guns, domestic battery, drugs, assaults, DUI, probation violations, eluding police, sexual battery, hit and run, rape, theft, child abuse, etc. They haven’t missed a crime opportunity.

    The 870 criminal arrests of the members of one organization, the NFL, in 17 years tells us all we need to know about the character of the NFL players. They can stop the virtue signaling right about now.

    The NFL players have one hell of a nerve telling the civilized world about what’s right or wrong in our society and how we somehow aren’t as pure as they are. They get overpaid for playing a little boy’s game and they can’t do that right much of the time.

    They’re off my viewing schedule for the foreseeable future.

  4. It’s 4 AM on Monday morning.

    I was pondering something over the weekend, perhaps a bit too much. Know how they say that inspiration sometimes hits at the oddest hour? Well, for me, this was one of those.

    The really, really short version, is that the reason people argue against liberty, is because they’re scared of its implications.

    Because IF you are truly free, then your life is whatever you’ve made of it, for good OR ILL. It’s a source of pride to be considered a self-made success; but who will admit to being a self-made failure?

    And yet, in a truly free society, ALL failure is self-made. And the only way to rationalize that frightening thought away, is to say that it’s somehow extrinsic; it’s the fault of “the man,” or “the system,” or whatever else.

    It’s almost cliché to say that with great power comes great responsibility. But if that is true, then the corollary is this: if you have the ultimate power to live your own life, you also have the ultimate responsibility for it.

    And “If your life is a mess, it’s your own fault” is a scary idea; no wonder so many are so quick to surrender their liberty.

    I need some coffee.
