While the amateur psychologists try to tell us what's going on in Vladimir Putin's head, discussion is being marred by their bad guesses and without taking into account the one factor driving the Russian madman: HISTORY. Putin may well be on the way to getting what he wanted, and that may very well include sacrificing Ukraine to stave off nuclear war. Dr. Robert Rabil is a foreign policy expert, and without being a phony sh...

Dmytro Maruchok is a son of Ukraine and a former journalist, who is unafraid to point out the real reason why this war was launched, who is truly to blame for allowing Vladimir Putin to bring us to the point of a nuclear conflict, and the history this world has yet to learn when it comes to murderers such as Putin.

Time to get off the lawn, older baseball fans. The game doesn't care about you, doesn't need you, and doesn't want you. They need and want to go younger in order to make the cash. That means the game we see right now is doomed. Let's add to this mix that not only baseball, but EVERY sport is caring much less every day if you actually attend the games.

All this nonsense about what's wrong with Major League Baseball makes the first mistake in not asking someone who was there, on the field, and who understands the game with more than an eye for flashy commercials and stupid rules for extra innings. Former MLB All Star Jim Kern takes a blowtorch to how MLB has screwed the pooch, all the while telling excellent insider stories from his new book, "70's and 80's Tales o...

A series of recent demonstrations in and around Orlando FL rocked the community and the nation, as American Nazis showed up to shovel more hate with signs, swastikas and salutes. What can and should be done to stop the spread of this cancer? Why do certain politicians such as Florida Governor Ron DeSantis not strenuously object to these demonstrations?

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...

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.
