Ray Lewis tells Kaepernick to stop getting “caught up in some of this nonsense…”

If you missed it Monday, Shannon Sharpe verbally assassinated Ray Lewis debating the Ravens handling the Colin Kaepernick on FS-1’s ‘Skip and Shannon Undisputed’.

Ray Lewis must think we are all fools, as he tries to convince Shannon, Skip Bayless, and anyone else who will listen that the Ravens not bringing in Kaepernick is more than just his activism.

After being slammed on social media Ray attempted to clean it up with the following video via Twitter.

WTH…

According to Lewis, Kaepernick should be quiet and just play football. Is that the kind of advice Lewis would have given to Jim Brown, Kareem Abdul Jabbar, Bill Russell and Muhammad Ali? And when Lewis refers to Kaepernick being “caught up in some of this nonsense” is he calling police brutality and unfairness in the criminal justice system nonsense?

At this point Lewis is tripping over himself, trying to clean up his ridiculous take on this matter. He says he doesn’t know Kaepernick, but this is a brotherhood. If that’s the case contact Kaep, stop going on TV and posting videos about Kaep being in your prayers.

Come on Ray, do better!

Is the Senate Republican Health-Care Bill Dead?

Late Monday evening Republican Senators Mike Lee (Utah) and Jerry Moran (Kansas) tweeted their opposition to the latest version of the Better Care Reconciliation Act (BRCA).

“There are serious problems with Obamacare, and my goal remains what it has been for a long time: to repeal and replace it,”

“This closed-door process has yielded the BCRA, which fails to repeal the Affordable Care Act or address healthcare’s rising costs. For the same reasons I could not support the previous version of this bill, I cannot support this one.” – Moran

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and the rest of the republican senate started the process of trying to repeal and replace Obamacare knowing they could only afford to lose 2 votes to pass any legislation. With Lee and Moran announcing their opposition to the BCRA the number of republicans that have publicly opposed the legislation now stands at 4, including Senators Rand Paul (Kentucky) and Susan Collins (Maine).

As much as Republicans hate the idea, they should work with Democrats on legislation that can shore up the health exchanges, lower premiums and lower deductibles within the framework of Obamacare.

Of course that’s easier said than done since republicans have built their base on a repeal and replace rhetoric that never had their constituents in mind.

Meanwhile, what’s next for the Trump White House?

Right now their only accomplishment is helping the ratings for MSNBC shows ‘Morning Joe’ and ‘The Rachel Maddow Show’

Senate Republicans Unveil New Health Care Plan

Senate republicans introduced another health care plan to replace the Affordable Care Act (Obamacare), and if you are keeping count that is plan number 3, including the House plan.

So what have we learned from these republican plans to replace Obamacare?

Well, republicans seem to not give a damn about poor people being able to afford healthcare, and they don’t really care about keep campaign promises.

Throughout Trump’s campaign he said he would not make cuts to Medicaid

But President Trump celebrated the House health care plan; The American Health Care Act (AHCA) in the White House Rose Garden when the House passed its plan. A plan that included approximately $834 billion in cuts to Medicaid

What happened President Trump?

What happened to republicans promising to lower deductibles and premiums?

In the beginning of the year on Face the Nation, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell talked about the status quo being “unacceptable” with premiums and deductibles being too high. The problem is that healthcare plans from both the House and Senate fail to address what they have promised. And they lead to more Americans being without health insurance. Their plans offer cheap programs that will allow insurers to deny coverage due to pre-existing conditions while deductibles remain high.

How does these plans offered by Republicans Make America Great Again???

What’s so great about making it more difficult for the less fortunate to receive affordable health care?

Yes, In 2011 President Obama Suspended the Iraqi Refugee Program…

Yes, In 2011 President Obama suspended the Iraqi Refugee Program for 6-months.

In response to the backlash President Trump has received since he signed the immigration executive order,  many conservatives and Trump supporters have mentioned Obama suspending the receiving of Iraqi refugees in the U.S. The problem with that comparison is that Obama’s suspension of the refugee program was in response to 2 al Qaeda-Iraq terrorists living as refugees in Bowling Green, Kentucky.

And at that time Obama didn’t restrict visa access, they slowed down the process of allowing visas and added additional security checks because of actionable intelligence. In Trump’s case he seems to be acting within a bubble that did not include anyone outside of the oval office.

The Department of Homeland Security only saw details of the executive order on Friday, the day it was signed, and basically left border patrol agents on their own to figure out how to enforce the order.

Get it together Trump!!

Donald Trump Will Win Tonight’s Debate

Donald Trump will win tonight’s debate…..

Yup, that’s right!

The man with no real grasp of foreign affairs or how government works or how trade deficits work; will win tonight’s debate against Hillary Clinton and it’s very simple.

All Trump will have to do is seem normal, that’s it!

In saying this, I am not saying that Trump will be the next president of the United States. We have already seen that a first debate win doesn’t necessarily translate into residency at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue (See Mitt Romney 2012).

If Trump can refrain from talking about the size of his hands, and WWE style vignettes he can endear himself those who can’t stand Clinton and just need a coherent reason not to vote for her. The problem is can Trump contain himself? Can he resist the urge to not be the SHOW?

Who knows, but it should be interesting tonight.

Yes, Melania Trump Plagiarized Michelle Obama’s 2008 DNC Speech….

For my conservative friends, say it with me…..

Yes, Melania Trump plagiarized Michelle Obama’s 2008 DNC speech

That’s it! Stop trying to make excuses for Melania and the campaign’s speech writers, stop blaming Hillary Clinton, and stop blaming the media for focusing on this.

Just own it and move on, because the more you deny, the more it becomes a story/joke. This is a stupid story not worthy of the energy needed for the denial.

Minneapolis Cops Upset with Lynx Players and Their Message

Four off-duty Minneapolis cops left their security post at the WNBA Minnesota Lynx game in protest over Lynx’s players wearing t-shirts that called for a need for change.

Before the game the Lynx’s Maya Moore explained the meaning behind the shirts.

“If we take this time to see that this is a human issue and speak out together, we can greatly decrease fear and create change,”

“Tonight we will be wearing shirts to honor and mourn the losses of precious American citizens and to plead for change in all of us.”

Instead of approaching the ladies to discuss the meaning of the shirts, the 4 police officers took the childish way out and walked out.

And right there is the problem…

If those Lynx’s players got it wrong, why not talk to them and explain your point of view?

Kids play the silent game when they don’t get their way, not adults!
