What does it mean when we on the right describe ourselves as conservatives? What is it that we are trying so hard to save, preserve or prevent the loss of – which is what to conserve means.
Those on the left would say we wish to conserve the days of slavery and Jim Crow – or maybe the white-old days of the 1950s before the Civil Rights movement.
Despite the fact that all those bad times were born of the left in this country, we conservatives wish to reestablish and conserve America’s original set of governing rules.
Our nation was founded on a set of ideals – the Declaration of Independence, and rules – the Constitution and Bill of Rights. Yet Americans today seem only to care, and demand absolute adherence to some rules, while all but ignoring others. read more
Wait … What?
You mean to tell me that draconian lockdowns, shutdowns, business and school closures, depression, isolation & suicide have, it turns out, not been effective?
from Daniel Horowitz at the Blaze:
Horowitz: With no lockdown or mask mandate, Florida has roughly same hospitalization level as 2018 flu season

So this is rich, and maybe even a little delicious. After all the identity politics and feminist virtue signalling, not even the first female college football faux-player could save even a black man’s job.
It was my understanding that black football coaches were pretty safe from reprimand and firing. But apparently I’m wrong. Despite being black, Vanderbilt sacked it’s head coach, maybe … just maybe because he sucks and not necessarily because he’s black. read more

NASCAR has flipped. They sold out to the Race warrior, cancel culture rage mob.
And in case you don’t know what NASCAR stands for. It’s an acronym.
It stands for: National Association of Southern Crappy-Ass Racists.
And I wonder how many think that it really does?
Anyway – I can’t believe how astonishingly fast this is all happening.
We, as a nation, are racing head-long into the ash heap of history, as two of the most astonishing stories are rolled into one. read more
If you’re anything like me, you desperately craving anything that remotely resembles a sporting event.
Since that isn’t going to happen soon enough, I suppose the only thing we to look forward to is the NFL “Hunker Down” Draft.
On a recent broadcast of the Rich Eisen podcast, he was able to reveal several photos of team General Manager’s in-home draft rooms. It ain’t sports, but at least it’s something.
So now we wait for one more day. In the interim, you may enjoy this video representing what the “Hunker Down” Draft may look like and how smoothly it is likely to go.
Enjoy: read more
And it’s going to happen no matter doesn’t like it. So declares NFL commissioner Roger Goodell.
from the Blaze:
NFL declares 2020 Draft will go on as scheduled — and Commissioner Goodell makes it clear that he will not tolerate dissent: ‘Grounds for disciplinary action’
Like most Americans, I love to watch the Olympics. What makes it special is that it only comes around every two years – since they began staggering the Summer and Winter games.
But every so often, politics creeps into the games.

We all remember the pink-haired wingnut and social justice warrior, Megan Rapinoe, of the U.S. Women’s Soccer team, who “took a knee” during the playing of our National Anthem at a World Cup game. That was special.
But unlike her contemporary and fellow social justice windbag, Colin Kaepernick, Megan remains employed. This is likely due to the fact that her team is not privately owned, but is run by the U.S. Soccer Federation as a nonprofit, 501(c)(3).
We haven’t had to endure Megan’s nonsense lately. However, with the Olympics right around the corner, I’m sure she’s already busy planning something that will surely be special. And by special, I mean completely asinine.
But not if the International Olympic Committee has anything to say about it. read more
