Posted in: Gymnast Biles still struggling with 'petrifying' mental block See in context

Let's see: Do I trust armchair quarterbacks who have never done any gymnastics in their lives, or do I trust the statements of former gymnasts like Dominique Moceanu, who have first-hand experience of what gymnasts and other athletes have to go through? Hmmm ... I think the choice is so obvious.

Posted in: Players, coaches criticize IOC for dropping softball for 2024 See in context

Personally, I feel that anything where the outcome is solely relied on judges (e.g. figure skating, skateboarding, surfing, synchronized events), should not be included as an Olympic sport. The outcome is always going to be subjective and controversy will always loom, no matter what. At least with sports like basketball, baseball, softball, volleyball, etc, the physical element, strategy, and will are the main factors in determining the outcome.

Posted in: Trump insults Pence, McConnell in speech to party donors See in context

The grifter keeps spouting nonsense. He even tries desperately to deceive his GOP base to donate money directly to his own pockets by keeping up with his divisive rhetoric. He is like the gum you can't seem to get off your shoe.

Posted in: Medical examiner blames pressure on neck, not drugs, for Floyd's death See in context

I wonder if Chauvin could go without oxygen for 9 minutes, with a knee pressed against his neck. All of that against an unarmed man who was accused of one counterfeit bill. And yet, when a white guy commits mass murder, they don't use nearly the same kind of force on them.

Posted in: Police official: Chauvin trained to avoid neck pressure See in context

Wow! It takes three fully-armed and well-trained officers to restrain an unarmed man. Also, to keep using excessive force even though he was totally unresponsive. And to top it off, not even trying to give him CPR, even though they were well-trained to give it, when it was apparent that he was unconscious. It is totally clear that Chauvin is guilty. If not, then I guess anyone can become an police officer nowadays. If he isn't found guilty then it sends the message that any police officer can arrest and use excessive force on any civilian, whether they are a threat to them or not.

Posted in: Florida Republican Rep Gaetz says he won't resign over 'false' sex allegations See in context

He is truly a repugnant human being. No, actually, he shouldn't even be classified as a human being. I think I truly started hating him the moment he became the lone Congress person to vote against a human trafficking bill. He obviously showed that he doesn't mind the trafficking of minors.

That's pretty gross. Imagine receiving one of those mail with some soy sauce or mayonnaise stains on it from his discarded bento.

Posted in: Trump looks to reassert himself after impeachment acquittal See in context

Trump's acquittal smells eerily similar to when O.J. Simpson was. I can guarantee that Trump will not get away from the numerous suits being brought forward against him. The Georgia lawsuit of extortion is one that seems to have real legs because there is insurmountable proof of his liability in that case. He will go to jail in the end for something, just like O.J.

Posted in: Super Bowl No. 7 for Tom Brady as Buccaneers beat Chiefs 31-9 See in context

Credit for the win should go to DC Todd Bowles for creating a masterpiece of a plan. The Bucs got gashed by K.C. in their regular season game, but this time around, they made the necessary adjustments. K.C. probably didn't expect to see so much Cover 2 and 2-man coverage. Credit for that should go to their young secondary who didn't allow Kelce and Hill to go wild, and made Mahomes stay in the pocket longer for the four man rush to apply just enough pressure to get them off their game.

Posted in: On first day, Biden rolls back Trump policies on border wall, climate, WHO, health, Muslims See in context

Trump agrees with you - he loves employing illegals at his properties - cheaper than hiring Americans...

So true. Also, let's not forget that Trump is notorious for stiffing payment to his workers. His followers should have used their "Stop the Steal" signs for Trump to stop stealing money from them and his workers.

Posted in: Capitol rioters hold out hope for a Trump pardon See in context

“I feel like I was basically following my president. I was following what we were called to do. He asked us to fly there. He asked us to be there. So I was doing what he asked us to do,”

If Trump does pardon them, then it would be clear admission on his part that he did incite the protesters and caused an insurrection. Even Trump wouldn't be so stupid to do that.

Posted in: U.S. state capitals on edge for armed protests as Trump presidency nears end See in context

Thanks to Trump, Americans have to be more afraid from their own fellow Americans, than from foreign terrorists. It's not to crazy to think that we will now need walls surrounding all federal buildings, monuments, etc. as well as heightened security at all times.

Posted in: Visiting Texas to see border wall, Trump takes no responsibility for Capitol riot See in context

I really hope they impeach Trump, even if it has to be after he leaves office for the sole reason of taking away his tax-payer funded benefits he would receive as a former president. He absolutely does not deserve a penny more from hardworking Americans.

He should be paying for a wall around the Capitol.

At any rate, I'm sure now Mexico is willing to pay for the wall to keep Americans out of Mexico. Heck, I'm pretty sure Canada wants to build a wall to keep crazy right-wing white supremacist lunatics out of their country too.

Posted in: Justice Department pursuing seditious conspiracy cases in probe of Capitol riot See in context

I'm sure they are also investigating whether or not it was an inside job. It sure looks that way. The Washington D.C. police department even requested that the Department of Defense send in the National Guard, but was totally ignored. It wasn't until Pence called in way later, that the guard and backup was sent. It was a stark contrast to the preparation for the BLM protests. The insurrectionists seemingly had the doors open for them and they knew the layout of the building.

On any normal day, if anyone wants to visit the Capitol, they have to go to strict clearance and checks. Even handicapped people in wheelchairs have to have their wheelchairs thoroughly inspected. Mothers with babies have to have their bags of baby necessities X-rayed and hand-checked. Yet, these armed protesters were allowed to go through the doors unimpeded. Why?

Posted in: West Virginia lawmaker charged with entering Capitol in riot resigns See in context

As more details come out about this riot, it gets more and more disturbing at how violent it was. Police were not only injured, but some seriously. A lot only saw the outside where protesters were mostly peaceful. However, there were many inside the building armed with guns and knives and zip straps ready to kidnap and possibly torture or kill congress men and women. They looted and destroyed property. You thought the BLM protests were violent? The riots in the Capitol made them look like children's playtime. I really hope they go after and punish all perpetrators hard, so nothing like this can happen again.

Posted in: Democrats plan impeachment; Twitter deletes Trump's account See in context

Trumpism is an ideology. It has no place in the GOP. In effect, it has been like a cancer spreading in the GOP and causing it to split into to camps. The traditional Republican party, and the party of Trump.

Trump doesn't care one bit for the ideals and traditions of the GOP. In fact, Trump doesn't even care for any of his supporters, contrary to what his supporters may believe. His supporters are so stupid to think that their shyster of a leader actually cares for their needs and wants. All Trump cares about is himself and only himself. Just look at how quick he will throw former friends under the bus. Heck, I'm not sure he even likes his children.

Posted in: Democrats plan impeachment; Twitter deletes Trump's account See in context

Trump must be punished. Even though impeachment may take too long with only 12 days left until Biden takes office, he and every senator and protester who took part in this coup must be held accountable and severely punished. If not, make no mistake, it would send a message to future despots and power hungry wannnabe leaders to do this again. Next time, it could be even worse. Instead of impeachment, maybe a lengthy incarceration would be more appropriate. These attacks on America's democracy cannot happen again.

Posted in: Trump says he will not attend Biden's inauguration See in context

He is being petty as he has always been. He will go down as the biggest sore loser there ever was. To top that off, he has shown to be a liar and coward, as he first said to his followers that he would be right there with them as they marched to the Capitol, but was quickly found hunkering in the WH. Cowards will always lead from behind.

Defund the police!

Except the U.S. Capitol police of course.

The Capitol police were so inept. They were taking selfies with the protesters, and basically opened the front door for them. A stark contrast in the way the Black Lives Matters protest in Washington was dealt with. A clear sign that racism exists among the police force.

"She loved her country and she was doing what she thought was right to support her country, joining up with like-minded people that also love their president and their country," he told Fox 5. "She was voicing her opinion and she got killed for it."

No, she only loved Trump and his right-wind ideals. If she cared about her country, she wouldn't have willfully broken into a government building, destroying property, and threatening bodily harm on government officials.

It's going to take a lot to repair the damage to America's image as a democracy. Trump has caused the U.S. to be the laughingstock of the world.

Posted in: Somber Senate unites to reject election challenges See in context

The guilty rioters should be arrested and locked up. Unfortunately, because they belong to the right, they will of course get preferential treatment. Unlike protesters in the Black Lives Matters protests who were often times mowed over by cars, arrested without any reason, kidnapped in unmarked vans, etc. It's like night and day how the police treat protesters based on the color of their skin, or their cause.

And to think that Trump was so against NFL players peacefully protesting by taking a knee, but doesn't outright condemn protesting violently. So to him, violent protests are good, but peaceful protests are bad. Wow!

Great job in getting the most corrupt senators out of there. Perdue evaded debating against Ossoff, and Loeffler was never voted into her position by the people. Good to see the Senate being cleansed of the slime.

This is what happens when you give the keys to the country to a man-child who only cares about his ego. Trump never cared about Americans. He basically took the "United" from the U.S.A. We should just called it the "States of America" from now on. I'm sure other countries like China are laughing their heads off at the third-world country that America has become. You can thank Trump for that.

What's ironic is that those same Republican senators who backed Trump's calls to overturn the election, are now cowering in fear from the assault that he and they brought upon themselves.

Posted in: GOP plans to upend Biden win for Trump rips party apart See in context

I'm not so surprised these days that most GOP senators put party before country. What surprises me more is that these senators above, are going one step further and putting Trump ahead of their own party. It's not only selfish, but very disturbing. They would rather let America burn and support a thug like Trump, than stand up to him and help to unite the country.
