Last time in The Shoe

The Patriots shut out the hapless Falcons last night.  Antonio Brown (allegedly) made a logical decision based on his age and overall health. Ohtani and Harper are your baseball MVPs for this season, unsurprisingly. League soccer is back this weekend after the latest international break. And I’m on my way to Columbus tonight to watch Ohio State take on Sparty in a top ten showdown and what will hopefully be a memorable Senior Day for Chris Olave, who is one TD catch from tying the OSU all-time record.  And that’s sports.

A true champion

English king Charles I (who was executed by Parliament) was born on this day.  He shares it with president James Garfield, archaeologist and discoverer Hiram Bingham, band leader Tommy Dorsey, Indian PM Indira Gandhi, HOF catcher Ray Campanella, TV’s Larry King, businessman Jack Welch, TV magnate and large landowner Ted Turner, fashion designer Calvin Klein, actresses Meg Ryan and Jodie Foster, sprinter Gail Devers, motorcycle racer Jeremy McGrath, and the Twitter douchebag Jack Dorsey.

Not a bad list.  Now on to…the links!

[inappropriate cackling]

What the hell is actually going on with the current administration? Because there sure seems to be a lot of infighting, backstabbing, and general chaos.

Way to go, Supreme Court. You bunch of pussies.  Now states will continue to eat away at free association and will continue to compel people to do work they may not want to do. And no, I’m not being anti-gay. I’m being pro-free association.

Meet the new gestapo. Same as the old gestapo.

Austria is going full retard. You never go full retard.

“We do not want a fifth wave,” Schallenberg said, according to ORF. “Nor do we want a sixth or seventh wave.”

I’ve got bad news for you, Wolfgang. You’re gonna have a fifth, sixth, and seventh wave anyway.

The jury’s still out on this one. Funny they only mentioned a blurb about the guy who was following the jury bus and didn’t do a deeper dive into what appears to be an attempt by a major media outlet to track down and find where jurors live.  The whole thing has become a fucking farce.

I’m liking this guy more every day. And no, I’m certainly not referring to Lebron.

DE…oops, I mean REFUND THE POLICE!!! Portland does an about-face in the wake of a rise in violent crime.

“These poor youths” -the left

“This is what happens when we don’t have a $15 minimum wage.” Or that’s what people like AOC would lead you to believe. To me it just looks like a bunch of shitbags stealing luxury goods.

I’ve got a better idea than either of these proposals: just get rid of public schools and give the tax money per student to the parents so they can all send their kids to the school of their choice (or homeschool them, obviously).

Two billion?!?!?! Why not ten billion? Or a hundred billion? Or a billion billion?  It’s all made up numbers anyway. And this isn’t defending Scott. Just pointing out the absurdity of the lawsuit that should be aimed solely at NRG and Live Nation.

Here’s a lovely song for you to end the week with. Hope you enjoy it as much as I will.

Now have a wonderful Friday and an even better weekend.  Go Bucks! Beat Sparty!!!
