    Now that THAT conversation is over with


    Hey, I'm reasonably successful attorney who has invested well and have been married to a Jewish women for 20 years.  

    My dye has been cast.*








    *This post has been made strictly for stereotypical humor and in no way reflects actual intimate aspects of my marriage which are none of y'all's business.

    That's your opinion. If you don't want your kids working at certain spots, that's your perogative. But you can't deny that jobs are actually available. If you're choosing to be picky about the environment, that's on yourself. Covid is here with us now and once the CDC gets rid of the guidelines, what will you do then? 

    My kids are vaccinated and I am fine with them doing whatever.  I'm just saying that you can't blame greed or laziness on people making a decision to accept government support rather than work someplace where they life at risk.

    Companies that follow CDC guidelines have guidelines and protocols in place. It's the employees that put themselves at risk by ignoring guidelines and protocols. It's literally no different than taking a trip to the grocery store. 

    Like I said, I only feel sorry for those unable or not in areas where jobs are available. If jobs are available and bodies are able, people should be filling those spots. You, GF or whoever else can disagree with that all you want. I'm okay with that. 

    Come on . .  . . . it is NOT like "going to the grocery store."  The reality is that we have ALL limited our time spent in doors around the general public.  Sure, masks and distancing helps, but the more exposure, the more risk.  I would not let my kids work at a restaurant, retail shop etc.

    You do realize that there are several jobs, good paying jobs, available that people aren't pursuing and when they get them they aren't staying. You can lecture me all you want but I can speak on what I see with my own eyes, been doing it all year long. Easy, good paying jobs and people simply will not come to work because they only want a handout.

    I only feel sorry for those who are unable or not in areas where jobs are available. Will never feel sorry for able bodies that can actually perform these jobs.

    Wait:  The fair question is "Are these 'easy, good paying jobs' that expose people to COVID on a daily basis?"

    Well, two points really. 😉

    I completely missed this game due to Mother's Day festivities, but it really doesn't sound like I missed a lot of that JOSEF scoring. Watched the highlights and saw a ton of really ugly defensive play. I can only hope it's just sheer exhaustion. Some of our guys just looked to be going through the motions and listless. 82 degrees in Miami alone shouldn't be that much of a drain, but CCL and season congestion is a thing. 

    The last twenty minutes was like watching a different game.

    Very interesting that United's three subs were all to forwards.  Interesting tactic.  I guess the thinking is to take advantage of a team that had to open up the field and hope to get a buffer goal rather than just bolster defense.  I don't mind the strategy, but it failed pretty miserably.  We were sloppy and slow on defense.  Seems like one set of fresh legs up front and two sets back would work better.  Of course, I'm the expert so . . .

    It's not so much that she's factually wrong in her position so much as she's keeping Trump in the news and encouraging him to demonstrate his hold on the GOP in order to fight a battle that serves no real purpose other than landing her a regular gig on MSNBC.

    The leftist purist take that Libs are suckers for acknowledging when awful people do decent things is the worst of takes.  Let's ignore the atrocity that the former (and future) bad actors are standing up to, and focus on the atrocities of Libs for recognizing their decency.  It's as if they don't WANT the atrocities to stop.

    OK . . . SECOND worse take.

    OK, Now I have to tell my "Why Bobby Petrino was worthless SOB BEFORE he quit mid season by post it note:  Lefwich was the starter and led the team to a 1-6 record.  But he got hurt.  Joey Herrington replaced him and won two straight games and, by some miracle, the Falcons were actually still in the playoff hunt at 3-6.  

    Game 10 was here against the Bucs and Byron was back and brutal.  I desperately hoped Herrington would take over in the second half, but Lefwich stayed in and continued to be brutal.  And the game was  over 31-0 by the time the Herrington finally entered the game at the beginning of the fourth quarter.  

    So here is what Petrino could have done:  

    1) Let the hot QB continue to start.

    2) Give the injured starter his job back but take him out when he is not performing, but the team still has a chance to win.

    3) Call of the dogs when the game is hopeless to protect your starting QB.

    4) Put the back up in when it is hopeless and call off the dogs.

    But here's what Petrino does:  He sticks Herrington out there AND KEEPS PASSING ON EVERY DOWN so poor Joey Herrington has to take the beating the Lefwich created.  Somehow, Herrington actually went 16/20 with a TD and only one sac (no interceptions).  He finished was a QB rating 62 points higher then Byron's.  But I was there and I remember that Herrington hung tough even though he was getting drilled on every play.  

    And then the TD/MIke Smith Matt Ryan era started which was not actually SO bad so maybe Petrino did us all a favor.

    But poor Joey Herrington got screwed, and a few years later his body was pretty much destroyed when he was hit by a car on a bike ride, but hey, thanks to Petrino he was used to it, right?

    **** Bobby Petrino.

    Now it's on liberals to ask McConnell and Pence why they're not siding more strongly with Liz Cheney. Exposing their hypocrisy will dissuade their constituents and likely cause voters to suspect that Trump himself has an ulterior motive in attempting to change the definition of the "big lie" in the first place. MSNBC should give me the spot they're saving for Liz Cheney.

    That is pretty much exactly what Joe Scarborough was suggesting this morning.

    Lol and yikes


    Wow . . . One of the strangest in the short history of Atlanta United was Carlton getting benched . . . or worse actually.  He was kept out of uniform and later banned from the victory parade the day of the MLS Cup.  

    Apparently he played well enough for Indy last year, and there is not evidence that he actually stormed the capitol, although he indicated an intent to go to the rally.  

    He's a dumb kid.

    Maybe he'll mature.  He certainly could turn things around and have a successful career.  It seems like he should GTHO of Georgia though.
