How I can simultaneously still be a Democrat and vote for the Biden-Harris ticket for President, while criticizing them too.

The pool of voters for Biden is much larger than people realize. Trump’s supporters are shrinking more and more and there actually a ton of persuadable voters that actually want a politician to level with them. Blind loyalty to the Democrats is a turn off to people that were sympathetic to Trump prior to the pandemic. These voters aren’t stupid and they resent being treated as such. People that never thought they could ever vote for a Biden / Harris ticket, actually might, but they don’t want to be lumped in with a bunch of sycophants. Continue reading

REST IN POWER KOBE & GIGI!

But, then in 1996 is this kid from Philadelphia (my mother’s home-town) having gone to Lower Merion HS with cousins of mine, and that was Kobe “Jelly Bean” Bryant. I was a freshman in high school when he came on the scene, and it was like he was the next Michael Jordan.

THE NBA & CHINA: A GEO-POLITICAL AFFAIR!

Very rarely does Geo-political matters and the State of the National Basketball Association intersect like this, but it has, and the NBA gets a failing grade for its handling of this matter (14).

To say otherwise, means either you are truly ignorant, willfully ignorant, or you have a real incentive to protect the NBA Brand because of financial reasons (16), Continue reading

The first Female President of the United States will be…

Here’s the catch for those of you who aren’t familiar with the US Constitution[vii] (at all), AOC is only 29, and according to the Constitution she needs to be at least 35 to be POTUS[viii]. “Poll finds that 74% of Democrats (and people who lean Dem) would consider voting for Ocasio-Cortez if she were old enough to run for president”[ix]. So, realistically I see AOC running for POTUS in 10-18 years. I’d settle on 14 as part of the sweet spot, where she will be just in her mid-forties, seasoned enough to do everything and anything, and still young enough to have the mantle of being the Millennials’ Champion!
