Fuck you pricks…

Let me start by admitting that yes, I am a diehard Redskins fan. Been one since I saw my first live football game back at the age of 12 in the old RFK stadium. Stuck with the team through thick and thin and even though I had no other reason than that’s the first team I chose to root for. I have always loved the team name and logo, and seen it as actually honoring the Native American tradition. Nobody names their team a pejorative name. You pick a name that gives you pride and reflect fighting spirit.

I never heard anyone say they wanted to root for the “New York Pansies” or the “Denver Snow Bunnies”, which is where I am seeing the PC crowd drive this derailed train towards. You want something fierce and reflective of your pride in that, so I never, ever, understood the idiots that implied the Redskins name was something other than a positive. Maybe I have lived a secluded life, but the Native Americans I know and have had the opportunity to discuss the issue with have to a man told me that that they never understood the problem the white man has with this team name. In fact, one of my good buddies told me that he felt the whole thing had nothing to do with red skin, and everything to do with green paper with dead white presidents on it, and I can’t argue with that wisdom.

Well, our litigious victimhood society seems to want to address an ill that’s not there, and some people, the same ones that always seem to be behind all these grievances, have again stood up to make assholes out of themselves. Political correctness is a fucking cancer on our society. Even worse is the insanity by these leftists that think they are doing something good or noble here, because they are not. What’s next? Some old marm says she doesn’t like the name “Miami Heat”, because she thinks that is a secret reference to S&M sex, the donkeys all see another opportunity to PC grandstand, and that team will have to change their name?

Rediculous. “Hail to the Redskins!”

What Are They Up To?

I get the need to justify your position with the appearance of diligence and purpose, and God knows that if any body needs a public relations make over, it’s Congress, but whenever a group of them get together and foment some totally useless endeavor (much like trying to defund Obamacare), it goes beyond scratching your head with ,”What are they thinking?”.

With all that is going on with the nation at present (we’ve been in worse shape in the past, noted, but clearly their sense of hierarchy needs work) a new bill coming down the pike would eliminate the death penalty for just about all federal crimes;

Rep. Donna Edwards (D-Md.) and seven other Democrats have proposed legislation that would eliminate the possibility of imposing the death penalty for a range of federal offenses, including several categories of murder and crimes against the government like treason and espionage.

They cover just about every offense that would warrant the death penalty. Odd, but things like fire bombing an abortion clinic, or a company refusing to cater at a gay wedding, those are not exempted, would not want to remove all the teeth from the death penalty.

Clearly they must have some notion that this superfluous flummery will not see the light of day in the House or have even the remotest chance of becoming a law.

You think this has anything to do with Snowden or Tzarnaev? We know how much those bunch think Snowden is a patriot, and Tzarnaev, hell, they all want to adopt him, he is so cute.

With all the legitimate work staring them in the face (they still have to pass that bill that would fund Obama’s image being placed on Mt. Rushmore, money don’t grow on trees, don’t you know) this little diversion seems frivolous and a waste of time. I guess their latest mission (to exempt all their staffers from Obamacare, like they got for themselves) was a Mission Accomplished, time to move on to other things.
