Today’s Top Stories (Or At Least The Ones I Like):
*Nearly 3/4 of NBA players are Black, clear evidence of racism. Progressives have shown us that rewarding people on the basis of standards and merit is unfair, exclusionary…and racist. (They have even convinced the United States military of this.) We need to make the NBA look more like America. It should be majority white, slightly over half female…and with about 40%of the players obese.
*A recent NBC news article helpfully provided tips on exercising at the gym during the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, including admonitions to disinfect all equipment, wash your hands frequently and thoroughly, and…wear a face mask…in the shower. The article stated: “It's best to avoid the showers if possible, since you can't get masks wet — otherwise they lose their efficacy. If you need to shower at the gym, shower as quickly as possible and only remove your mask when your face and head is going to get wet.” The article appeared in the "Wellness" section of NBC News, but may have had an ulterior motive. Such as making money. The post contained retail links for water bottles, reusable straws, a yoga mat…and face masks. NBC News profits from these affiliate links every time readers make a purchase. When and where else must we mere plebeians where facial diapers? In our graves?
*American Thinker’s Thomas Lifson recently pointed out that the media is perfectly fine with naming the new variants of the coronavirus for geographic locations even as it is strictly forbidden to state or imply that the original virus, COVID-19, came from China. Historically, diseases such as the Spanish Flu, German Measles and Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever were logically named for there place of origin. China, apparently, is an exception. The unbiased, intrepid legacy media once again beclowns itself by essentially uttering things like, “The UK/South Africa/Brazil variant of the virus that definitely didn’t come from a large nation in Asia…”
*Meghan Markle, the former Duchess of Sussex who left the royal family because she felt it was too hard to be a princess, is allegedly now considering running for president of the United States as a Democrat. The Washington Times reported that its sources say Markle “is networking with Democratic leaders for a possible shot at becoming America's first female president.” Do Democrats really want an entitled, whiny, publicity-seeking millionaire as their standard-bearer? I mean, they already have Hillary Clinton, Michelle Obama and Nancy Pelosi. Instead of Markle, why not Cardi B or Megan Thee Stallion? They are just as qualified and would be natural fits to follow in the rich tradition of Bill Clinton, JFK and countless other “sex-positive” Democrats.
*MSNBC host Tiffany Cross recently suggested that it is time for the building housing the FBI's headquarters in Washington, D.C., to undergo a name change. The federal investigative and intelligence agency’s headquarters is currently named the J. Edgar Hoover Building, after the FBI’s first director. Cross, however, doesn’t think Hoover worthy of the honor, and is on record as saying the FBI should honor a real American hero: Stacey Abrams. Abrams is the Georgia politician and activist who believes she was cheated out of becoming the governor of the Peach State. If the FBI is going to rename its headquarters, I say call it the “Cardi B Building” or the “Megan Thee Stallion Building.” Or the “Cardi B and Megan Thee Stallion Building,” to be more inclusive. They are just as deserving as Stacey Abrams and would lend a certain hyper-sexual
