One week ago I had this exchange concerning crime in Chicago and the DNC convention:

Less that one week later:

The meat and potatoes of it:

two teenagers were shot Saturday night as hundreds of youths streamed through downtown streets, prompting a heavy police response that resulted in more than a dozen arrests. The boys, 16 and 17, were among the large unruly crowd about 9 p.m. in the 100-block of East Washington Street when shots were fired, police said. The younger boy was shot in the right arm, and the other boy was shot in the left leg. Both were taken to Northwestern Memorial Hospital, where they were listed in fair condition.

On the bright side nobody was killed at that incident but throughout the city 35 were shot and 8 killed this weekend past

The statement of the new mayor just elected is a doozy

In no way do I condone the destructive activity we saw in the Loop and lakefront this weekend. It is unacceptable and has no place in our city. However, it is not constructive to demonize youth who have otherwise been starved of opportunities in their own communities.

And others are even funnier”

But in fairness democrats in Chicago like Mr. Peters have found something worth condemning, WALMART

You know the more I think about it there isn’t a more appropriate place for Democrats to hold their convention.

I look at the Redsox lineup for opening day and the first thing I thought to my self was: “This is the lineup of a team that will finish last.”

The 2nd thing that I thought of when I saw the Red Sox Starting Lineup was: What the hell is Raphael Devers doing batting 2nd?

The guy is a power hitter with limited speed who doesn’t walk as much as he should. That’s for 4th or 5th not second. Batting him second is 100 double plays waiting to happen.

There was a lot of fuss on sports talk radio about Chris Sale not pitching opening day. I think it’s foolish for two reasons.

  1. He’s been injured so regularly lately we’re just lucky to have him pitching at all
  2. There is absolutely no reason to believe that the oft injured Chris Sale of 2023 bears any resemblance to the dominating Chris Sale of 2018.

If Sale proves himself an ace again great but anyone expecting this needs to have their head examined.

Speaking of Sale and Devers I’m looking at the 40 man roster and noticed that the two of them are the only two players left from that 2018 World Series Championship team.

Apparently the RedSox have decided to go the Connie Mack route after winning these days.

Lucky for them the Patriots aren’t going anywhere but if the Celtics & or Bruins manage to win titles this year it’s going to make them look even worse.

Finally I noticed the Draft Kings signs above the green monster and if you are listening to any sports radio you know they are constantly pushing the betting lines on the various baseball games.

And here is a press release from MLB

MLB names FanDuel a new official sports betting partner in North America

New Partnership Gives FanDuel National Broadcast Integrations, Expanded Marketing Rights, and Provides Customers the Ability to Watch and Wager on MLB Games Via Sportsbook App and OTT Platform FanDuel+

Ok so now not only is betting on baseball legal but MLB now has an official bettering partner for MLB games.

Given these facts I have one obvious question:

With Baseball Pushing Gambling Everywhere and Having an Official Better Partner How the Hell is Pete Rose Still Permanently Banned from the Game?

While I had no problem with the ban of Rose at the time it makes no sense to continue the ban for gambling 30 years after the fact with the league is pushing gambling on baseball as the greatest thing since sliced bread then it’s time for the leading hitter of all time to be welcomed back into the fold and forgiven before he dies.

If I was Fanduel I’d hire Rose on the spot.

Dating Apps and Bigotry

Of all the delights of this world man cares most for sexual intercourse. He will go any length for it-risk fortune, character, reputation, life itself.

Mark Twain

Something stuck me when I saw this piece on Twitchy:

Kaeley Triller’s been described as a “highly skilled female operative of the theocratic right” and considers herself an old-school AstroTERF. On Saturday she decided to share some of the matches a lesbian dating app found for her friend:

ah the agony of choice…

As you might guess there are plenty of people who insist that a woman like Kaeley is a bigot if she doesn’t consent to date and/or sleep with any of these people, but looking at this photo brings up an obvious question to me..

How many of the “transwomen” are as they would call it “transexclusionary” when it comes to dating?

I mean after all if these “transwoman” are in fact women as they maintain and are in fact lesbians as the also maintain then surely they would not exclude other “transwomen” from their dating pool would they. In fact if these woman are not rushing to choose other “transwomen” as both dates and sexual partners must we conclude that they are by their own standards bigots?

Now I don’t know the answer to my question and perhaps someone who has a greater knowledge of these dating apps and how they keep stats can figure it out. If they determine that the “transwomen” there are in fact happy to date other “transwoman” then I’ll gladly concede that my supposition is wrong.

But if in fact they are holding out for actual women then they become the ultimate confirmation of the Mark Twain quote above

The Trans-Cultural Mindfulness Alliance is only 1/3 right

Posted: January 25, 2023 by datechguy in comedy

On Twitchy the “Trans-Cultural Mindfulness Alliance” revealed itself to be a parody account and berated news organizations for being fooled about their story concerning demands to cancel Aretha Franklin’s song “Natural Woman”

I think they were maybe 1/3 right:

While they might be correct that a news organization should have contacted them being “stunned” that the lazy journalists of today didn’t bother is on them. That shouldn’t stun anyone familiar with the business at all, disappoint maybe stun, never.

But the real problem is is this line:

“Based on the Sheer ridiculousness of the content of this page, how could JOURNALISTS not comprehend that this is parody/satire.”

I laughed at loud at this. Sheer Ridiculousness? Have you actually seen the trans movement in action? The men have periods and the protests and the claims?

I submit and suggest that if sheer Ridiculousness was the standard to judge stories on the transgender movement then practically everything we hear would be considered parody. If you doubt me go to the Babylon Bee and search for the phrase “prophecies fulfilled” Then tell me how “Sheer ridiculousness of the content” should be the standard used on judging if a story about the left is parody or not.
