| 25 Comments

This was the biggest one: Last time I looked the Washington Redskins are still named the Washington Redskins.

All the Trump haters out there should read his latest book, educate yourselves with the mans OWN words instead of the words of the lying media scum and you will see he is not only a great money maker, he is a great man who is not, and cannot be corrupted by the cash from lobbyists these current politicians are corrupted with. Anyone with a sound mind can see the Keystone is being held up so the crooked old democrat buffet can make one more dollar and on it goes. Trump wants the country to run like a well run business does, is that so bad? It is if you've been on the gravy train, like the one that is revving up now in Canada under the snowboarder.

Funniest thing on this topic on The Five last week.

Eric Bolling turns to Juan Williams and asks: ‘Did you hear they're changing the name of the Washington Redskins?'

Juan bites: ‘No, I hadn't.'

Bolling: ‘They're changing their name to the D.C. Redskins.'

Unfortunately, The Boy Wonder Pony was a success for them.

I hope this becomes Obomber's Not Welcome Tour :-) It is his election tour for president of the World AKA UN head schmuck.

D'ya think the blatent Smearedia in Canada, the one who convinced the electorate to put another Lybrano Majority Government in Power over your Tax-Dollars, will ever be put aside? Naw the same group of Maritime "Give me More"- and the same Province of "Just in Time to make us feel more Important" will continue beg and cheat. This means The Liberal Party of Canada/Ontario/Quebec will continue to use your Tax-Dollars to fund them with ever-increasing Billion $$ grants and needless Advertising to promote the Librano Agenda.

The DC media might have lost some battles, but they're still winning the war. The average American (and Canadian) has a much more positive impression of Obama than he deserves.

Speaking of Washington Redskins, didn't Chief Robert Louie say in a CTV W5 segment that he collected Washington Redskin memorabilia. Amazing how a chief who has nothing to whine about really doesn't whine about anything. The Washington Redskins had several Indian team members when they were given the name to honour them not denigrate them.

Having recently fallen off the turnip truck and hit my head, WTF is DC? In my world it's direct current. When I google DC I get direct current and a few "disconnected".

Damn Conservatives?
Democratic Congress?
Dillary Clinton?
Donald Clump?

Am I the only unwashed here?

District of Columbia where the capital of the USA is located.

Ah - as in Washington D.C. Thanks James. Seems obvious now.

wow. what a list. Mr Shakespeare said it best, "the truth will out". seems the problem in today's instant gratification mode, ie instant access to information, the lessons are not learned.

it does confirm the adage about politics being a blood sport. and the entire spectrum has adopted THAT strategy. they ALL do it.

and having time to cogitate, it seems to me that Trump's bankruptcy history is just what is needed to weather the coming financial 'concrete wall'. you know, cool heads, dont panic and make it worse etc etc. gawd help them if clinton v 1.1 takes office. she is just waaaaay too intense, and over the years her true colours have in fact shown. more of Mr Shakespeare's reassurances. and remember when you vote, pick the one who will do the least damage.

To me, what is very weird is the assumption that using a term reminiscent of aboriginal culture is in some way bigoted. I thought it was emblematic of the cultural influence that Natives have had. When you name a sports team something like "Redskins" (or simliarly, Cleveland, Indians), you are identifying strong qualities commonly associated with native warriors. I would have thought young natives would like to see aspects of their cultural heritage reflected in mainstream cultures, especially in positive contexts. After all, we live on this continent together. The progressive activists, however, are attempting to create cultural silos, where no group can be seen as influencing another group. It is foolish and very short sighted.

Trump wants the country to run like a well run business does, is that so bad?

That's more the problem than the solution. Over governing and micro-managing. The Founders deliberately made gov't inefficient for a reason...gov't can't be run like a business, because it produces nothing. There's no incentive to produce good gov't other than the morals of those who operate it. Just as the Founders predicted...

ah yes, in fact Linda, there is a move afoot to expunge the following names from Canuckistan vocab seeing as the all have indigenous origins:

Canada
Alberta
Saskatchewan
Manitoba
Ontario
Ottawa
Huron. anybody want a huge lake named after them?

for starters.

Ummm, sayitaintso - Alberta is named after Prince Albert IIRC. He wasn't much of a native... You can pick lots of other names though, Shubenacadie and Comox might be a good start if you want to work both East and West coasts into this.

Named after Princess Louise Caroline Alberta, daughter or Queen Victoria.

There were some ignorant swine in Edmonton discussing the name Edmonton Eskimos this year as if the word Eskimo is somehow derogatory. Last Eskimo I met 10 years ago said to me "I'm an Eskimo." Good enough for me but not the perpetually offended.

When ever there's a mass shooting especialy at a school(Sandy Hook)the media sharks and vultures have a regular feeding frienzy but the american people who have learned not to ever trust these scumbags(Liberal Media)have rejected all the emotional poppycock and still stick to their 2nd amendment rights the good citizens of the states of New York and Conneticutt have refused to register their guns despite the demands of their stupid govenors

The tailspin has set in, impact will take a little while.
On the posted article, funny how the comments devolve into arguing perceptions of US politicians, perceptions mostly created by this very same corrupt media.
The timing is getting better, we have an institutional authority, the 4th estate, exposed as the lying shills, partisan propagandists they have always been.
Government has harpooned the publics trust on every front.
Public education has been exposed as statist propaganda, ask any 20 year old indoctrinated in Catastrophic Anthropogenic Global Warming.
They have had this weather phobia rammed down their throats, now they begin to learn there has been no warming in their own lifetime.

Civil society relies on trust.
That trust has been shattered, by the bad actors who convinced the citizens, that they could play the required roles.
National Debt, negative interest rates, selective law and order, all compounded by state banditry.
The old media has endlessly told us what we must think, they take our silence for agreement.
Yet they create that silence thro selective coverage.
Right up until they are hung for treason, they will still be insisting that they know better than thee, how you shall spend your time and labour.

Parasites are incapable of restraint.
You cannot find more useless grasping takers than what poses as our intellectual leaders, here in Canada.

I think the biggest failure was the Canadian media's attempt to make turdo la doo look smart. However, it turned out it didn't matter, did it?

strad, your best comments are the ones you do not make. There are many businesses that produce nothing, just like the government, which in fact does occasionally produce something, tho usually very inefficiently. Government should be about consensus building, while a business is top down structured, thus dictatorial by nature.

Nolte. Pretty much my favorite journalist. If you're not following him on Twitter, you're definitely missing out.

Heh, I see still adding 0 + 0 and expecting to get to 666 :-)

On the largest Green Bay Packer blog, some idiot did the Redskins is racist rubbish. So I said, what about a local high school team here in Montana called the "Indians". Well a half dozen responded it was racist and they should change their name.

The team was the Browning H.S "Indians". That school just happens to be located on the Blackfeet Indian Reservation here in Montana and they chose the name.

PC = political cowardice.

PC = Just plain dumb ass

Exactly!

Yes, it is too bad the Canadian media did not fail in its blatant shilling for the Shiny Pony.
