TRUMP IS GOING TO MAKE A MOVE ON BIRTHRIGHT CITIZENSHIP And I'm glad. Not because I think an Executive Order has any real staying power, but because I'd like this to be decided by the Court some way for clarification. There are only about 30 other countries with birthright citizenship and many of them have it because it made it easier for invaders to take over.
THANKS FOR THE MEMORIES DEMARYIUS THOMAS! But we'll see you Sunday when we play your new team the Houston Texans. Here is the press release from the Broncos:
BRONCOS AGREE TO TRADE WR DEMARYIUS THOMAS TO HOUSTON
ENGLEWOOD, Colo. — The Denver Broncos on Tuesday agreed to trade wide receiver Demaryius Thomas and a seventh-round pick in the 2019 NFL Draft to the Houston Texans in exchange for a fourth and seventh-round pick in the 2019 NFL Draft, President of Football Operations/General Manager John Elway announced.
Please see below for statements from Elway and Broncos President & CEO Joe Ellis:
PRESIDENT OF FOOTBALL OPERATIONS/GENERAL MANAGER JOHN ELWAY
“Demaryius had an incredible run here and we can’t thank him enough for everything he’s meant to the Broncos. He developed into an elite player over the years, establishing himself as one NFL’s most productive, consistent and reliable wide receivers. D.T. was a big part of so many wins and memorable moments as a Bronco. Although it’s tough to end this chapter, we’re excited about the talent we have at the wide receiver position and wish Demaryius all the best with the Texans.”
PRESIDENT & CEO JOE ELLIS
“Demaryius will always be part of the Denver Broncos family. He was a special player for this organization during a very special time for the Broncos and our fans. We’re proud of all Demaryius accomplished on the field while also very quietly doing some outstanding work in the community, representing the team with class and humility. We look forward to honoring D.T. one day as a Ring of Famer and appreciate his many contributions to the Broncos.”
GUESS WHAT? YOUNG PEOPLE DON'T VOTE And this is nothing new. Voters between the age of 18 and 21 are historically the least interested in voting, even as they worry about the way the country is headed. I'm completely okay with this, by the way. I think about my choices in my first few elections and I cringe.
MIKE PENCE IS BEING BLAMED FOR A THING HE HAD NOTHING TO DO WITH But let's not get caught up in the facts about this. At a campaign event in Michigan, Pence shared the stage with a Messianic Rabbi and people are losing their minds. The problem is Mike Pence had nothing to do with the invite, the Jewish candidate he was supporting did. But let's not let the opportunity to call Pence a "Christian Supremacist" pass, shall we? This is just stupid. Just dumb.
DUDE. VOLCANIC LIGHTNING IS COOL.
WHITEY BULGER GOT WHACKED. The same day he was moved to a High Security prison in West Virginia he went to sleep with the fishes. This is my favorite part:
Following his conviction, Bulger was transferred to the U.S. Penitentiary Coleman II in Sumterville, Fla., in 2014 from another high-security facility in Arizona, according to the Boston Globe. He reportedly was scrutinized for his relationship with a female psychologist.
Dude seriously must have thought he was Tony Soprano.
EVEN SCIENTISTS MAKE DUMB COMMENTS SOMETIMES And this is fantastic.
RACIST JOKES ARE TOTES ADORBS WHEN HILLARY MAKES THEM! From the woman who knows how to put on a condescending accent while speaking in black churches, we now get comedy where she cracks a joke about all black men looking alike! Hilarity! Comedy Gold! But only if you're a Democrat, amiright??
NOW THERE IS A MUSEUM DEDICATED TO DISGUSTING FOODS And I sort of like the notion that one culture finds disgusting, another eats with gusto. What's the nastiest thing you've ever had?
COLLEGE CAMPUSES ARE A HOT BED OF ANTI SEMITISM And we all know college campuses are not exactly bastions of right wing conservatism. This column calls them out very nicely.
ONE IN THREE COLLEGE STUDENTS THINKS PHYSICAL VIOLENCE IS OKAY TO STOP HATE SPEECH And our entire nation is lost. Sorry America, you had a good run, but this is where we are now.
THANK GOODNESS SENATOR BILL NELSON IS RATCHETING BACK THE RHETORIC Because I can only IMAGINE what he would have said instead of saying that America is like Rwanda before that pesky genocide happened. THANK GOODNESS!
