    Republican leaders are slamming President Biden for taking a long weekend out of the public eye as major cities fall to the Taliban in Afghanistan. Biden on Thursday sent 3,000 US troops to Kabul to evacuate US Embassy workers as the Taliban overran Herat and Kandahar, Afghanistan’s second- and third-largest cities — but he hasn’t commented publicly on the crisis since Tuesday. House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) said Friday that Biden “must immediately focus all efforts on making sure there is a plan to safely extract all American service members and civilians still remaining in Afghanistan.”

    Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer has teed up a vote for the weekend on the $1 trillion bipartisan infrastructure plan, ending debate late Thursday evening by filing cloture on the sweeping measure. While the final vote time remains unclear, the Senate is scheduled to come back into session on Saturday at noon, with lawmakers out of session on Friday for late Sen. Mike Enzi’s (D-Wyo.) funeral. Top lawmakers in the upper chamber had hopes of passing the measure on Thursday evening, but parties remained at odds over votes on additional amendments.

    The NFL season ends Sunday, and I suspect it will end the same way it began: with reminders that we’re all racists who need to change our ways. No specifics will be given. None are ever given. And having not oppressed a minority since breakfast — hell, I’ve been a virtual shut-in since March — I’m sick of it. It’s all part of the radically mixed, highly selective social and racial messages that have been delivered with the cowardly, pandering certification and capitulation of Roger “The PSL Salesman” Goodell and a chosen blindness to what most continues to afflict black...

  • My Favorite Football Weekend

    01/12/2020 9:02:18 AM PST · by DIRTYSECRET · 32 replies
    Down to 8 pretty good teams. Unfortunately in each game one pretty good team lies down or doesn't show up. Baltimore should be in the Super Bowl and they didn't seem to even try. Minnesota was never in it. Injuries are too big a factor Seattle will have no offensive line going against 2 excellent players on the GB defensive line. Russell Wilson could still pull it out but after16/17 games I think too many teams just give up from exhaustion. It seems to happen year after year.
