NATIONALS ELITES VS. ASTROS AMERICANS
Counselor to the president Kellyanne Conway appeared on Fox and Friends wearing a Washington Nationals baseball cap in honor of the team winning the World Series. Kellyanne excitedly said, “Since President Trump came into office the Capitals, the hockey team, the Mystics and the Nationals have won their first championships.” I am not as forgiving of the Nationals as Kellyanne. I have not followed baseball for years. My buddy Bob is an avid baseball fan, extremely excited about his Nationals finally making it to the playoffs. So, I became an instant Nationals fan.
I joined Bob in rooting for the Nationals to win the World Series. Politics never entered my mind. President Trump attended a World Series game in Washington, D.C. and Nationals fans booed him. They even had the audacity to chant “Lock him up!” That’s when the cold political reality hit me. These fans are elitist swamp dwellers. They are not everyday Americans, because most everyday Americans cannot afford a ticket to the World Series. I was shocked when my blue-collar West Virginia handyman told me how expensive it is to take his son and wife to a regular season Nationals baseball game. I have fond childhood memories of my cousin Buntsy and I having enough money to regularly attend Baltimore Orioles games at Memorial Stadium. I was blown away when I walked through the tunnel, up the ramp to see the stunningly beautiful green baseball field. Tickets were priced for everyday people. When those Washington Nationals fans booed my president, I wanted the Nationals to lose the series. That may not be fair to the Nationals players, but that is how I felt. In my mind, the series became Washington elitists vs. America.
Watching professional sports should be a non-political, enjoyable pastime. Rush Limbaugh often says liberals corrupt or destroy everything they touch. All I wanted to do was support my buddy by rooting for his team to win the World Series. Nationals fans infected with Trump derangement syndrome even screwed that up. Despite their venomous attack of our president, it is appropriate for Kellyanne to take the high ground by celebrating the Nationals winning the championship. The Houston Astros winning the series would have made my day.
“If our country is to survive and prosper, we must summon the courage to condemn and reject the liberal agenda, and we had better do it soon.”
“YOU JUST CAN’T MAKE THIS S**T UP” CATEGORY
California’s Prop 47, a referendum passed five years ago, effectively gives shoplifters and addicts the green light to commit crimes as long as the merchandise they steal or the drugs they take are less than $950 in value. It reduces certain non-violent felonies to misdemeanors in order to free up resources for police and prosecutors to go after serious, violent offenders. This has resulted in thieves brazenly shoplifting knowing the police will not respond to the merchant’s complaints.
