Joe Scarborough argued with Texas Sen. Ted Cruz over gun control and interpretations of the Second Amendment Wednesday morning. He told Cruz flatly at one heated moment, “I don’t need you to lecture me on what the Supreme Court does and doesn’t do.” WATCH: “So you know better than anyone. You know what the Second Amendment says,” said Scarborough. “I don’t know better than anyone but I know what the Second Amendment says,” said Cruz. “But you were involved with Heller, weren’t you?” asked Scarborough. “I represented 31 states in Heller,” responded Cruz. “So you know, at least where it stands right now, Scalia said that Second Amendment means people have a right to keep and bear arms in their homes. They have a right to have handguns in their home, they have a right to have shotguns in their home,” Scarborough stated. … [Read more...] about Scarborough Gets Testy With Ted Cruz — ‘I Don’t Need You To Lecture Me!’
I dont need you
The other day, a post popped up on my Facebook feed from a person who allegedly is a friend – well, a Facebook friend, whatever that means – saying that the person in question just didn't like curling. Unfriend. That is the new litmus test for Facebook friends. You can spout nonsense and post links to stories that originated in the fevered mind of Vladimir Putin and troll for comments by just being dense. But you can't disrespect curling – which, if not the sport of kings, is a pretty good sport nonetheless. You disrespect one of the greatest sports ever invented, and you're out of here. No debate. How can you not like a sport that combines the strategy and skill of shuffleboard with sweeping? How can you not like a sport that requires the skill of bocce and the ability to clear your mind of any thoughts that have to do with whether you remembered to turn the oven off or let the dogs out or whatever it is Donald Trump … [Read more...] about I don’t really understand curling, but I can’t stop watching it (column)
PERIMENOPAUSE! I'm 51 and I am beginning to go through all the wonderful things a woman goes through at this age or sooner. My mom said she began going through this when she was 53 years old. I believe the mood swings started way earlier than that for her and she just didn't realize what it was at the time. Why am I speaking about this today? I'm not sure. Maybe I just need to share and vent. Maybe because I don't feel like I've been myself lately. I'm normally a happy go lucky person. Lately - What the heck? I have to make myself not lose it at times; not get sad, angry or impatient over stupid things. I decided to look up symptoms. Wow, I have a lot of them. It's crazy that this happens, but I'm glad I'm not just losing it and there's a good reason. Not that anything's good about it!!!! LOL! The most prevalent one, of course, seems to be hot flashes. That's the one I don't really get. THANK GOODNESS! Maybe once in a while I experience something, but not like … [Read more...] about Perimenopause, menopause? Whatever they call it, I don’t want it! How do you treat something they say you don’t have?
Hoosiers, your vote matters. I know it's been a long and contentious campaign season here in Indiana and nationally. I'm with you in feeling frustrated. I don't think it's possible for me to listen to one more television ad about who does business in China or Mexico. But we're so close to the finish line. And I hope that through all the rhetoric and mudslinging, you've done your homework related to the issues that are so important to our state and country. Because frankly, we need to do better. Hackney: Curtis Hill received special treatment during groping investigation Hackney: USA Gymnastics continues to fail athletes, survivors In recent years, Indiana has been among the states with the lowest voter turnout. In the 2016 general election, Indiana fell in the bottom 15 states for turnout and in 2014 had one of the lowest turnout rates in the country. In Marion County less than 16 percent of registered voters cast a ballot in the primary, and in … [Read more...] about Hackney: Republican? Democrat? I don’t care. Just vote.
Arizona Republic sports columnist Greg Moore explores options for Larry Fitzgerald if he decides to retire. Yo, it’s been pretty intense around here lately, what with the fight over public funding for Talking Stick Resort Arena, the Diamondbacks trading the greatest homegrown player in franchise history and new speculation that the Coyotes could move in a few years. We can’t take any more bad news. That means Larry Fitzgerald can’t retire. We don’t know whether he’s coming back for a 16th season or not, and he always answers questions about his future with some variation of his patented response: “I don’t think too far into the future. I don’t even buy green bananas.” If anybody’s earned the right to shut it down, it’s Fitz. He’s got 16,000 yards receiving, 115 touchdowns and so many trophies he could build his own museum. And with the way things have been going for the Cardinals, who could blame the guy if he … [Read more...] about Dear Larry Fitzgerald, don’t retire: Arizona sports fans need you
