Member of the US Military need to make the choice of being vaxxed for COVID19 or being busted out. BRAVO. A media kneejerk in Denver proves again why local news has become such a joke in certain places. NIL is ridiculous seeing as colleges fail to cough up their millions and pay college athletes.

Another exceptional episode in "Free 4 All". Time to hammer down on knuckleheads like "Duct Tape Boy" who disrupt air traffic and put lives at risk. Also, time we stopped having any sympathy for anyone who suffers from COVID19 when they made the call not to vaccinated to wear a mask. Time to stop the ridiculous reliance on instant replay in sports, AND time to stop coughing out big bucks to see aging rockers such as...

As Simone Biles likely bids farewell to Olympic competition, there remains the stigma and misinterpretation of "hero", and some who will think Megan Rapinoe deserves to be shackled and drawn over kneeling at the National Anthem. Are we STILL screeching about this, and why can't some people understand what it means to use a pulpit for needed social change in America?

Get vaccinated or go home, and it's about time. How do comics find anything funny these days? Right wing racists and the usual dipsticks show blathering ignorance about #SimoneBiles. NO MAGA in the #NHL.

Simone Biles spits out an uncomfortable truth, and is hammered by the despicable amongst us. The real issue of mental health and why so many people fear it's discussion. America still gripped in a COVID19 nightmare and those elected conspiratorialists are trying to duck and cover. How popular IS NASCAR anymore, and does the casual sports fan care about that sport? And the return of "Team America: World Police" has peopl...

The head shaking fact that some people still won't touch a vaccine that could keep them, and others, from dying. The NFL sets new COVID19 guidelines that could, and maybe should, ripple across all sports and every business. Did Nancy Pelosi get caught in a right wing trap over the January 6th hearings? And just how good can a 75 year old look in a Playboy Bunny outfit?

What the despicable verbal racist attack against an Asian restaurant owner in Florida teaches us about a portion of society that will seemingly never surrender their evil.

The tragic state of local TV news, how COVID19 is helping to thin the stupid herd of one political Party, why black America is still wary of the COVID19 vaccine, and the reality of conservatorship fraud that is much more than meets the eye in the Britney Spears case.

The tampa Bay Lightning players basically took a dump on the Stanley Cup, or a bump if you will. No one enjoys great athletes anymore, and can we still laugh at Bill Cosby and Woody Allen jokes from the past?

VP Kamala Harris started a firestorm with her tweet ignoring the meaning of Memorial Day and tossing it off as a "long weekend". It was insensitive, short-sighted, and a mistake she and her staff hopefully now realize. It opens the door to a larger issue, that of wishing people a "Happy" Memorial Day. It's just as wrong, and without knee jerking, take a few minutes and understand why we would be better suited to...

There's a fight set for July 18th in Iowa that is not merely another boxing sham, but it has the approval of Governor Kim Reynolds to potentially be deadly for all in attendance. Let's not forget the "main event" features an "old as dirt" champion who can barely get in and of the ring under his own power.
