Miley Cyris is a coach on the weekly program on NBC TV network The Voice. She picked only women for her team. She supported Hillary Clinton for president in the 2016 election. Here she is crying after the election.
So, since she picked only women for her team, by her standards, does she hate men? Is she a misandrist?
I don’t really care how she chose her team. If one of the male coaches chose only men and explicitly said so like Miley did choosing women, would she think they hated women? Fair is fair.
Vice President Mike Pence walked out on his home-state Indianapolis Colts Sunday when members of the opposing team kneeled for the national anthem, but a report that Colin Kaepernick, the player who started it all, will stand if given another shot in the NFL was quickly dialed back.
“I left today’s Colts game because @POTUS and I will not dignify any event that disrespects our soldiers, our Flag, or our National Anthem,” Pence tweeted.
Mike, you didn’t dignify the event by being there. Why do citizens shows excessive deference to politicians? Come on people, they are not our daddy or mommy, and we don’t do royalty in the U.S.
“While everyone is entitled to their own opinions, I don’t think it’s too much to ask NFL players to respect the Flag and our National Anthem,” he continued.
So what is it that we must show respect for? The flag itself, the National Anthem, or what they represent? And what do they represent anyway? The omnipotence of government and superiority of the political class? Or the principles on which the country was founded? If the principles, remember all levels of government are bound by the Constitution, and government’s primary job is to ensure the security of private property and personal liberty, with each level of government being responsible for their assigned activity.
Yes! HBO Real Time host Bill Maher arguing for freedom to make choices in our lives.
“Until then all this will accomplish is to feed into the Republican message that Democrats don’t want to help people they just want to micromanage their lives,” Maher said. “It makes people hate us. It makes me hate us. And it prompts kickback.”
You bet your a$$ it prompts kickback, at least from me.
“I don’t want to let the right-wing own freedom,” Maher said. “People want to drain the swamp, not ban Big Gulps. Yes, I understand, you have a thousand good ideas for how I should live my life, check my privilege and sort my recycling. I will get to that. But first we need to get some Democrats elected and that’s hard when the movement to childproof the world has made Republicans the party of freedom and Democrats the party of poopers.”
With you on this, Bill. Here. I’d love to see more competition between the political parties over more freedom.
Viewers to the program thought Phelps was really going to be in the water with a great white shark racing it. Pretty naive if you ask me. What’s worse, feel outraged – how show-flaky can you be? Please people, engage brain before emotions. Here.

Senator Charles Schumer (D, NY):
“This suspect product has no clear health value,” he said in a statement. “I can’t think of a single parent who thinks it is a good idea for their children to be snorting over-the-counter stimulants up their noses.”
Senator, that’s not a good enough reason. Not every product or service must meet your enfeebled, limited imagination and memory. Interestingly, the good Senator is pro-choice on the abortion issue, so I’ll remind him of their universal mantra: it’s our body, and their our kids.
Article on the interaction between Hollywood entertainment, its use of firearms, and the professionals in the industry who want to restrict second amendment rights.
“It never ceases to amaze me that hollywood hates guns yet glorifies them in movies when there’s money involved,” tweeted @DeeboCouch. “How about libs in #Hollywood agree to never make another film glorifying guns and the people that use them THEN calling for #Guncontrol,” wrote @courtface59.
This is the wrong way to proceed because both sides give up something too vital to them.
So where fictional gunplay is concerned, can Hollywood win?
Yes, and so can the American people.
The collaborative, win-win, version is that Hollywood continues to make movies and television programs that involve guns, and Hollywood stops trying to restrict run rights. Americans are free to use guns for their purposes. No one’s rights are restricted.
For people in organizations like Everytown, well, unfortunately, they are on the restriction side. If, on the other hand, they want to work with gun groups to promote safe gun handling, that’ll work.
