    I am aware of that. Then all "religions" should have their tax exempt status revoked due to the abominable results of granting such status to Christianity, Judaism, and Islam.......................We live and learn...........................

    Re: Wussification of America

    For those who want to see what Eric Bolling is actually defending:

    Nobody who wins a war indulges in a bifurcated definition of victory. War is a political act; victory and defeat have meaning only in political terms. A country incapable of achieving its political objectives at an acceptable cost is losing the war, regardless of battlefield events.

    Bifurcating victory (e.g. winning militarily, losing politically) is a useful salve for defeated armies. The "stab in the back" narrative helped take the sting out of failure for German generals after WWI and their American counterparts after Vietnam.

    All the same, it's nonsense. To paraphrase Vince Lombardi, show me a political loser, and I'll show you a loser.

    There's the sense of entitlement since we don't let kid's experience failure nowadays. That includes things from not letting kids fail at school when their results are insufficient to handing out participation trophies. Some schools are even banning sporting activities to prevent anyone from feeling like a loser.

    We surrender to just about any complaint, rather that seeing if any of the responsibility falls on the complainant. For example, schools are removing a cross or picture of Jesus if one or two people complain, even if a hundred want it there. Someone needs to speak up and tell them to ignore it if they don't like it.

    You might say "the older generation always says the younger is worse." However, the upward trends for the numbers in divorce, kids born out of wedlock, government handouts, obesity, average age people live with parents until, etc. speak for themselves.

    What will it take to get society to acknowledge these mistakes and fix them? Feel free to add more.

    Eric Bolling: Mike Rice Firing Symbol Of 'The Wussification Of American Men' (VIDEO)

    This is a pretty lame justification for a guy being an asshole. But since it's from Fox, where everything in their view has a political meaning, why would anybody be surprised. Apparently the tactics used by Rutgers coaches don't work too well. They didn't make the tournement did they? Maybe thats why Coach K always turns out winners and nobody knew the Rutgers coach until he revealed his homophobia. Coach K seems to get results without being an asshole. So it seems to me that Bolling is full of crap and has no concept of what actually works in coaching. I doubt Rick Patino takes that approach either. Seems to be the approach by a guy that can't get results by treating players like men.

    The five great lies of the Left Wrong:
    We can be Godless and free. • “Social justice” through forced redistribution of wealth. • Silencing religious opinions counts as “diversity”. • Freedom without moral and personal responsibility. • Civilization can survive the intentional undermining of the family.

    And that has something to do with the Rutgers situation...how?

    You confuse whining with laughter at the hypocrisy. Apparently the Rutgers approach to competition doesn't work. They didn't make the tournement. Maybe the guy should ask what Coach K is doing that works so well. They don't seem to have these kind of problems at Duke.

    Political Correctness, like the War on Christmas or Rape Culture. Only this time, it's real. Ta-tun-tuuuuuun!
    I refuse to accept the view that mankind is so tragically bound to the starless midnight of racism and war that the bright daybreak of peace and brotherhood can never become a reality. - MLK

    There seems to be this rather odd notion among some Conservative Men that they're the last of the "Real Manly Manly Men" and act as if they're the only things holding the country together with their grotesque manliness, toiling each day while the guy down the street gets a free ride, acting as if he gets his grocery bills directly invoiced to his manly manly mail box.
    They're a bunch of whining pussy's.

    Right...if we only kept segregation, we'd be so much better off. That's quite a statement to make. I don't usually find a self admitted asshole that longs for the days of segregation, but of course it would come from a conservative. I believe that history is already in on Martin Luther King, and on the KKK and the racist segregationists that you seem to align yourself with. What's it like waking up every day as an out of the closet bigot?

    The left is obsessed with "hypocrisy" - it's as if cognitive development froze in adolescence.

    Nonetheless, some know a good basketball program when they see it. Believing that you'd get more out of a Duke team by screaming at it is like believing you'd get more flavor out of a fine filet mignon by covering it with Heinz 57.
