Why I Love Popovich

By blogjb / September 27, 2017

Why I Love Gregg Popovich I coached and ran a large basketball club for a dozen years, but can’t say most sports figures, coaches, entertainers impress me much when it comes to GETTING IT. I love Greg Popovich because he gets what is wrong with our president and this country. Below is a quote from […]


Two Party Hypocrites – GOP & DEM Phonies

By blogjb / December 21, 2016

As the 2000 Presidential Election neared its end, it looked like Gore would win the Electoral College and GW Bush the Popular Vote. Republicans whined all over the country how unfair that would be, and Democrats defended the Electoral College as part of the eternal wisdom of our Founding Fathers. The opposite happened. Gore won […]

I suggest a quiet period spent brushing up […]

Why It Is Personal – White & Black Bigots need to Chill

By blogjb / September 20, 2016

I’ve devoted a lot of time the past couple of years to challenging racists/bigots of every color and type. For me, it’s personal. Bigots cannot say “Black People” or “White People” without offending me. Dark and light bigots have been getting on my last nerve for three decades. I love white and black people, and […]

Political correctness (on all sides) prevents Americans and humans from conversing the way we need to about important issues. It seems every group of people operates like gangs whose primary purpose is to deny people their first amendment right to free speech. These packs of mind policers can’t stop pissing on the First Amendment. If […]
