    I suppose you thought Tales of the Gold Monkey and The Master were likewise amazeballs, no?

    neither were as good as airwolf or gavilan. But if you have such lofty standards you will never be satisfied

    "Get woke, go broke"

    Honestly, if Billie Jean King, Roberts, Hill, Kike, and the leftist LA sports media (like Andy McCullough, Bill Shaikin, and Dylan Hernandez) decide to bully the Dodger players into skipping a White House visit should they win the World Series, I will never watch (let alone attend) another Dodger game again.

    I honestly want to puke anytime I see Dave Roberts on TV. Lost all respect for him when he took the bait.

    I can respect a man with an opinion that differs from mine. No problem. If an individual player, coach, or a small group of players do not want to go, that's great. I'm down with that. But an organization-wide decline is telling the world that there is only one way of thinking.

    I think the Red Sox handled it phenomenally. And as much as I disagree with Alex Cora on trump's handling of Puerto Rico, he was very respectful to the players who opted to attend. He didn't treat it like a big deal. Just had his own personal reason . David Price, on the other hand, basically called the entire team white supremacists. Where is the hate coming from again?

    An organizational decline would vindicate a media whose mission is to delegitimize, dehumanize and tear down the POTUS. If the Dodgers were complicit in that, I'd be done.

    I want to see the Dodgers show the world unity and open-mindedness. It is so lame how the media acts like visiting Trump's White House is "different" than any other president. They say it as if it is a matter of fact too which is the worst. We didn't need to have "conversations" when Obama was president? Why was he above reproach and careful consideration? Rodney Peete, Vic the Brick cannot hide their hate for the ma . I have only listened to a combined 1 hour of their show over the past year and yet i know they hate Trump. Get this shit out of sports.

    And although the Dodgers probably will not win, I can guarantee a declined invitation that will be celebrated by the LA media.

    I hope I am wrong. Because I'm already having a hard time rooting for this team thinking about what a poor example they will likely set in the name of woke virtue signaling

    I know this much - Chick Fil A is already pretty tasty in my opinion, but their sales indicate that woke protests against them have only made that chain more successful, not less. Just check the lines outside the NY stores that just opened, despite a hundred PETA and homosexual protestors with signs trying to keep folks away.

    I'm sick of wokers, too. But maybe they'll end up helping one of my mutual funds anyway.

    Everything you get from a source that is not a loved one is backwards.
    And even then you run the risk that they have been fooled.
    But at least you were fooled by a loved one.
    And there is solace in that.

    Everything from the news or the government or a corporation has an ulterior motive.
    Because this is its 'human' nature.
    A state is designed not to change by its very nature.
    Any progress/change you hear about is just window dressing.
    There is no reason to help the poor or rein in the rich from a government standpoint.
    Everything designed to supposedly help the poor is actually to eliminate them.
    Like the war on drugs, homeless, immigrants, etc...
    And every rein put on the rich is just another string for them to pull in case of emergency.
    It is not unfair. It just is.
    The system is not created by you or for you.
    You have the right to pursuit happiness.
    Nobody has the right to be happy.
    We do have the choice to be joyful though, and to make some noise while were at it.
    Because only YOU can prevent forest fires.
    Only you can change your 'human' nature.
    A state will not be doing any of this.
    All a state can do is drown you in fire retardant after the fact.
    But by then you are already lost and burning in hell.

    If someone gets woke does it mean that they had been previously sleep-walking through life?
    Or are they vampires just now coming up out of their tombs and in need of some visine eye decongestant?
    More like modern age pseudo born again Christians with a more in their eye but without the saving grace that makes them justified.
    Or maybe i'm describing demon possession.
    Either way, its the religion of the culture of caring.
    The religion of We Care A Lot.
    Which of course means that we don't really give a shit.
    Collectively speaking.
    So watch out for the collective.
    Then again... its nice to be treated like a valuable baseball card sometimes.
    To be part of a collection that a collector has chosen.
    Specially when you are gone and they are holding a convention in your honor.
    People die everyday.
    And they never got to see the Dodgers on parade day.

    Twitter is a real sketch of late. If you're not on there, and goody for you if you're not, the latest week of bulshit from the Twitter mob involves them trying to explain to America that Andrew Yang is and shall be the Democratic nominee who will beat Trump.

    I get that many people do care for the guy, and dig his rhetoric, and love the whole Asian thing [ insert racist side comment], but if the Dems think Hillary alienated people by running the way she did against Trump in 16, every cracker ass cracker in America who didn't vote in the last election is going to vote five times for Trump next November.

    Seriously... Trump would beat this guy so badly next year that it would make McGovern's loss to Nixon in 72 look like a close race.

    I like Yang, he's thoughtful and looking at problems with a different lens.

    But he's still economically illiterate. UBI is such a terrible idea.

    And crying about things at a campaign rally. Jeez. There's no crying.

    Do not be fooled. I had some respect for Yang until he raised his hand to provide free healthcare to illegal aliens and he called Trump a white supremacist. The dude's just another piece of shit.

    And while he makes a rational case for Ubi using the fear of automation and Alaska as an example, it is still a terrible idea.

    The fear of automation claiming jobs is also economically illiterate.

    150 years ago, more than half of Americans were farmers. Now less than 1% are. Automation took their jobs. It didn't ruin the economy, create fuedal servitude, or destroy society. People got jobs doing other stuff.

    That's what will happen again with the manufacturing and the various other jobs automation will replace.

    Anyone that's trying to scare you with tales of automation ruining society is either ignorant, or trying to take advantage of you.

    I think it's the electorate that he's forced to campaign to. You have to promise free handouts, get emotional about everything and promise to fix everything with the benevolent hand of government, or they won't pay attention to you.

    "Rational" maybe wasn't the best word to use
    I guess any argument that doesn't involve the words "homophobia" "racism" "sexism" "xenophobic" sound rational to me by default since it's so rare.

    Isn't that what they said about Trump before he upset Hillary.
