Calling Out Corruption

Another updated reminder for those who think what's happening is nothing more than a "left-wing media meltdown":

USA Today, the New York Times, and other news outlets reported that Special Counsel Robert Mueller interviewed Attorney General Jeff Sessions on January 17. The interview was reported to have lasted for "hours". It should be noted that Sessions is a target of the investigation, and the reports indicated that he refused to discuss his Mueller meeting with Trump.

"U.S. Ambassador to Panama John Feeley resigns after nearly 30 years of service, saying he can no longer serve Trump." – BNO News. The resignation is just part of the backlash after Trump's "Why are we having all these people from shithole countries come here?" comments directed at immigrants from Haiti, El Salvador, and African countries.

Banished White House adviser Steve Bannon has hired a personal attorney in anticipation of his upcoming testimony for the House Intelligence Committee, and an interview with Robert Mueller. Sources indicate Bannon has promised to fully cooperate with Mueller.

Senator Dianne Feinstein released to the public the Fusion GPS transcripts that Republicans tried to bury. The transcripts prove that when Christopher Steele went to the FBI, they already knew much of what he had, and his information corroborated what they had. Contrary to Republican propaganda, the FBI did not get all of their information from Steele.

Playing Chess With A Pigeon

Most of us have had the experience of arguing with someone who thinks it's his or her job to 'fix' everyone. That's the person who seems to believe that it's their responsibility to tell everyone else what's wrong with them, their way of thinking, and their opinions. Talking to people like that is like playing chess with a pigeon: no matter what you say, the pigeon will just shit on the board and strut around like he won anyway.

He Didn't Stop!

Baseball fans know that everything ramps up in playoff season. Exciting, dramatic plays take on an extra dimension in the post-season, when the season is on the line, and it is do or die, lose and go home. Saturday's ALCS game between the Astros and Yankees was one such game. The final, spectacular play of that game left many of us stunned and questioning what our eyes saw.

Baseball Is Not A Winter Sport

The Major League Baseball season is too long. The regular season begins in early April and extends, if your team is good enough, into late October, and possibly November. What ends up happening is that the most important games of the season – the playoffs and the World Series – are often played in some of the foulest weather we've seen all year.

Which Team Is the Best?

Which team is baseball's best in 2017? We're getting ready to find out with the playoffs and World Series coming up… or are we? The best team wins the World Series, right? Not necessarily. The 'cream rises to the top,' doesn't it? Maybe in milk, but not always in baseball.

What are you talking about? The best teams make the playoffs and then slug it out for the title, don't they? Not always. Just ask the 2001 Seattle Mariners, the 2015 St. Louis Cardinals, 2014 L.A. Angels, 2011 Phillies, or any other team that had baseball's best record in any year, yet did not win the World Series.

Good Guys With Guns

"When I go to a restaurant, I want to be sitting with friends who have guns on them," said Sammy.

"Why?"

"Because when the bad guys start shooting, I want to be near people who will defend me."

"Defend you by shooting the bad guys?" said Ellen.

"Yes."

"So," said Ellen, "when the shooting starts, your friends will jump up and start firing away?"

"That's the idea."

The Columbus Day Lie

Many Americans learned in school that October 12 is 'Columbus Day.' That day has long been celebrated as the day Christopher Columbus discovered America, when in reality, he did no such thing. October 12 is more accurately known as the day Columbus and his men landed on an island in the Caribbean Sea, mistakenly believing he was in the East Indies, and Asia.
