    • Fundraiser Reaches $7,000 Mark, Almost Over
      As of today, we’re at $7,035 (taking subscriptions as triple.) That puts at: A collection of 14 older posts with commentary, and intro and a conclusion. $8,000 would get us to 16, and 9000 would add a long piece on how to create stable government, with 10k (looking unlikely) adding an article on how to […]

The country of Puerto Rico

Chris Hayes asks:

Of course, we are talking about Puerto Rico, that US territory that is home to US citizens? Not even naturalized US citizens, they are Americans by birth. Yep. They also speak Spanish and this may cause some confusion in Trump’s head.

Still, you have to wonder why he’s making such a big fricking deal about a flag protest and letting 3.5 million American citizens fend for themselves.

Anyway, complaining about players exercising their free speech rights wasn’t even the worst of what Trump said yesterday.

No, what was worse was how in an effort to spare players’ BRAINZ from traumatic injury, tackles weren’t as exciting as they used to be and it was “ruining the game”.

Let that sink in.

I mean, if you *have* a brain and didn’t vote for Trump last year and actually care about things like peoples’ lives, safe drinking water and gray matter. Or dams that are about to collapse.

You’d almost come to believe that Trump thinks that when those players signed their contracts, they also signed away their rights to their own bodies and to the integrity of those brainz. Are we not entertained??

What kind of sick fuck thinks like that?

I will leave that as an exercise for the reader.

You can find organizations helping with Hurricane Maria relief here.

The Steelers are playing the Bears in Chicago this afternoon and have decided to join the protest and stay in the locker room during the anthem.

I couldn’t be prouder.

Unless they all decided to do it in public.
