Shouldn't we allow guns in MLB ...

…and other college and professional sports?

Don’t athletes have a right to defend themselves?
There must be some personal protection from all of the violence in sports today.
What if just one AR15 in each dugout or sideline?
Umpires and referees don’t do a very good job of stopping all of the violence, should we defund them or increase their funding to buy armored equipment?

Here is one to think about, with all of the weapons in athletics, the bats, sticks, 95 mph fastballs, rackets, helmets, blades (skates) and cleats, combined with tempers of large strong, angry men, the homicide rate on the field of athletics is 0%.
Couldn’t we try that in our society and see how it works?

Wise move! Pence breaks with Trump

“Better to lose an election than to lose our democracy”
Very smart position for Pence to take. The never Trumpers have a home to go to on that message.

Hey Texas, is that 78 degree thermostat setting mandatory or are we operating on the honor system?

Why aren’t any anti-mask protesters upset with the new energy requirements? How many people do they actually feel will abide by this mandate?

Why doesn't these Republican controlled states enact a mandatory Forest raking bill?

Since these conservative legislatures and governors seem to be leapfrogging each other into having Trump’s favor, let’s try a few others...
- a bill that supplies these states with invisible F-35 jets to fight the war on Christmas and thanksgiving.
- make cancer causing windmills illegal.
-establish funding to nuke hurricanes
- make covid testing illegal
- make the covid vaccines illegal
- put Putin on the ballot for president.

Have evangelicals ever examined why Tornados strike primarily in the Bible Belt?


I know they ( evangelical leaders) have discovered that homosexuality pisses God off and causes hurricanes and acts of terrorism, just can’t find their research on Tornados.

More proof small government conservatives are full of crap.

Texas Governor announces the establishment of two new State agencies, boarder control and homeland security for his state and he is also going to “build that wall”. So much for smaller government. Likely to be funded from programs to aid the elderly and poor if any are left.
Face it, they have no morals or values that they hold sacred. Everything is negotiable for the right price.

Is it possible that Trump is "acting"'insane to avoid prison?

How can a man that has engineered imaginary scandals of other people for years, fairytales of his own wealth and fantasies about his intellectual strengths fall for such obviously ridiculous stories and conspiracies of his returning to office?? He must be faking it all and it would convenient condition to have during sentencing for his criminal past which he will soon face.
