Rudolph Shares A Lunch To Remember With Area Middle Schooler

[img][/img]

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. – Jimbo Fisher likes to tell his players that they can make someone’s day just by being themselves.

Junior receiver Travis Rudolph did just that on Tuesday, when he gave a sixth-grader at Tallahassee’s Montford Middle School a lunch that neither will soon forget.

Five Seminoles – Rudolph, Dalvin Cook, Derwin James, Deondre Francois and Jalen Wilkerson – visited the school to meet with some area kids.

While eating lunch (pizza, of course), Rudolph noticed one child sitting by himself.

So Rudolph grabbed a slice, made his way over and sat down.

Ya know, folks that are still fighting the primaries are one thing

but when people start critiquing your marriage, it's gone too fucking far.

When people start excusing Anthony Weiner, it's gone too fucking far.

When people ignore the systemic racism, and the misogyny, it's gone too fucking far.

When people call you a Republican lite, or any other insult simply because you support Hillary Clinton, it's gone too fucking far.

I would like to hope that we can regroup, and work together, but I'm not holding much hope.

There are too many people here who are hell bent on not only destroying this site, but the Democratic party as well.

Carry on, but I'm sick of this shit.

Huma Abedin is a class act

Fuck Anthony Weiner.

Don't you dare try to tie his weirdo shit to her.

The college adjustment seems to be going well for

both me and my youngest.

I received one text inquiring about laundry tips and one text asking if any nearby restaurants would deliver a blooming onion.

Walking by her empty bedroom has been hard, and the house is too damn quiet, but Thanksgiving is right around the corner.

Who are the radical left, you ask?

Well one only needs to take a trip to the JPR site to find them.

You will find dozens of people who post there who fit the description. Many of them used to post here, portraying themselves as progressives.

If you were to take a trip there, you will soon see that they are indistinguishable from the alt-right idiots.

Some of them continue to post there and attempt to spread their nonsense here as well. I have no use for those idiots.

I do feel sorry for any who joined JPR and now regret it. Now that they see what they are actually about and what agenda they are pushing, I hope those folks come back.

The rest are just ratfuckers. They always were. They're just out and open about it now. Those ones can eff off.

You know who has really had it?

The regular folks.

We are sick and tired of the radical right, and the radical left.

Both of the above mentioned are the squeaky wheels who get the grease, but the rest of us are sick and tired of it.

The above mentioned are always angry, always aggrieved, and never satisfied.

Enough.

We are ready for sane, practical, and rational leadership. We are the majority, and we have had enough.

Don't confuse our silence for acceptance. We may not be complaining and angry about everything under the sun, but we do vote, and we will vote.... in record numbers.

And when we do, and do so in record numbers, I hope the radical right, and the radical left will finally shut up and let us proceed with progressive accomplishments.

Nobody has time for all of the loudmouthed idiot haters. It's time to get to work and start doing things, instead of complaining about things. Some are just never satisfied. We have all had enough of them.

That Time Hillary Clinton Heard Me On Everything from BDS to Pre-K

Full disclosure: I’m a Democrat. I volunteered for Barack Obama in 2008 and 2012 and voted for Hillary Clinton in the 2016 New York primary. I’ve donated money to Hillary for America. But it wasn’t until last week that I became, in my heart, a Hillary Clinton supporter.

Heading into a Cleveland, OH, fundraiser last Wednesday, I had this nagging sense that, while I backed her policies, Clinton was a little too wonky and lacked the authenticity and rapport with voters required to be a great president.

Meeting Secretary Clinton – hearing her speak off-the-cuff, without notes, at an intimate living room roundtable – I saw first-hand that policy is simply a tool for Clinton. Some people have a passion for gardening or creating art or scrapbooking. Clinton’s abiding passion in life – the animating spark of her wonkiness, if you will – is bettering people’s lives.

By the time I left, I was convinced not only of her genuineness; I felt that, if most Americans could spend just a few minutes with Clinton, she’d easily win both minds and hearts.

That's the Hillary I know, too.
