    Of course, he's going to be a converted 3-4 OLB most likely....so I really hope his middle name is Jackson.
    LOL, thanks for getting it. I'm betting not many around here would.

    Well, the NFL currently doesn't have a blood policy, but they might have to reconsider that now.

    I'm not saying it didn't take guts to do what he did, but to compare him to JACKIE ROBINSON!? You really believe you can compare the collective persecution of the black community in american history to that of the the homosexual community? Not even in the same stratosphere. for a million reasons.

    For most people it isn't newsworthy.

    I don't agree.
    “No men are anywhere, and I’m allowed to go in, because I’m the owner of the pageant and therefore I’m inspecting it,” Trump said... “‘Is everyone OK’? You know, they’re standing there with no clothes. ‘Is everybody OK?’ And you see these incredible looking women, and so I sort of get away with things like that.”

    Oh for pete's sake. "The left" is not comparing him to Jackie Robinson. A few misguided commentators are. But everything is about "the left" with you, isn't it?

    I've posted it before and I'll say it again -- the more frequently a poster refers to "leftists" or "the left," the more often they're just dead wrong. There's a select cadre of posters here who treat "the left" as a hivemind, as if anyone with "slightly liberal" or more leftward in their lean plugs into the Obamatron 5000 and downloads our latest updates from the DNC every morning. If one person who is even ostensibly "liberal" says something they don't like, then clearly all liberals think that and it thus can be used to smear "the left." It's a shamelessly dishonest tactic, yet it gets trotted out quite often at the drop of a hat.

    and like I've always posted, sweeping everyone into one little black or white heap vastly underestimates the complexities of human beings and the world we live in.
