Former MLB Star Curt Schilling Is Considering A Run For Office, & President Trump Is All Smiles

He wouldn’t be the first athlete!

It is said that Curt Schilling has been kept out of the Baseball Hall of Fame due to his conservative views.

In this day and age, it is entirely believable.

Now, the outspoken Trump-supporter is apparently considering a run for Congress.

Curt Schilling, a hero to many in New England for his historic 2004 MLB playoff performance and his two World Series victories for the city of Boston, announced Wednesday via the Arizona Republic that he is seriously considering running for Congress.

Schilling, who also won the World Series in 2001 for the Arizona Diamondbacks, told the paper that “If/When things solidify I will but right now it’s something in the ‘I’m considering it’ stage.”

Curt noted “The state is not the state I grew up in. Making Arizona citizens of EVERY race, religion and sexual orientation 2nd class citizens to illegal immigrants is about as anti-American as it gets.

President Trump’s response:

Curt Schilling, a great pitcher and patriot, is considering a run for Congress in Arizona. Terrific! @foxandfriends

Even for radically far-left Democrat Socialist Bernie Sanders this one is a doozy.

According to the 2020 presidential candidate, teachers can be paid as much as Major League Baseball players.

Or something like that.

Check this out…

Self-confessed socialist candidate for president, Bernie Sanders, recently ripped pro-baseball because its players make more than teachers. But to many Americans, it looks like Bernie lacks any understanding about the economics of the matter.

He tweeted:

If we are a nation that can pay baseball players hundreds of millions of dollars, don’t tell me we can’t afford to pay teachers the salaries they deserve.

Just in case you don’t see the problem here, check out these reactions:

Did I miss something or has the government started paying the baseball players, or is it still private entities? He is as dumb as his minions who are not bright enough to think for themselves.

As someone that covers sports business, let me say that Bernie is woefully off here on why the difference. As sad a commentary as this is, baseball is entertainment. It’s why there are multi-billion TV deals and 70M+ attend games in person. I thought Bernie understood economics.

There are 750 Major League Baseball players. In the world. 70 million fans voluntarily paid to watch MLB players perform in 2018. This is an apples and asteroids argument.

I think teachers should be paid more, but you do understand players are only paid well because people are paying to go see them… right? I’m not gonna drop $80 to go see a 3rd grade teacher for 3hrs.

Baseball players are paid in the private sector, teachers are predominantly government employees. Perhaps we should privatize education and make it competitive so there is demand for exceptional teachers and they could demand premium pay!

Save conservative media!

Disney Slaps ‘Peter Pan,’ ‘Dumbo,’ Other Classic Films With New Content Warnings

Published

on

Disney has decided to continue walking down the “woke” path, attempting to stay relevant so they can milk the rest of humanity for all the dollars possible by tossing some disclaimers on a number of classic films warning that some scenes in the movies contain “negative depictions” and “mistreatment of people or cultures.” Good grief. If Disney didn’t own two-thirds of the world at this point, it would become obvious that making this choice to “go woke” would result in the company “going broke,” but since they do seem to have their hand in everything, nothing is going to come of them doing this. via Daily Wire: “These stereotypes were wrong then and are wrong now. Rather than remove this content, we want to acknowledge its harmful impact, learn from it and spark conversation to create a more inclusive future together,” says the 12-second disclaimer, which cannot be skipped. The films include “Dumbo” from 1941, “Peter Pan” from 1953, “Swiss Family Robinson” from 1960, and “The Aristocats” from 1970. The disclaimer also directs viewers to a website titled “Stories Matter,” which says, “Because happily ever after doesn’t just happen.” “As part of our ongoing commitment to diversity and inclusion, we are in the process of reviewing our library and adding advisories to content that includes negative depictions or mistreatment of people or cultures,” the site says. “We can’t change the past, but we can acknowledge it, learn from it and move forward together to create a tomorrow that today can only dream of.” Disney went on to explain the reason for slapping the warnings on the content: Dumbo “The crows and musical number pay homage to racist minstrel shows, where white performers with blackened faces and tattered clothing imitated and ridiculed enslaved Africans on Southern plantations. The leader of the…

Top Astrophysicist Says Asteroid Could Smash Into Earth Day Before Election

Published

on

So far in the year 2020 we’ve had a pandemic featuring an age discriminating virus, race riots, the government admitting UFOs are real, murder hornets, and the wackiest presidential race of all time. Surely there’s nothing else this year could throw at us, right? Wrong. Apparently, according to astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson, there’s a strong possiblity an asteroid is going to smash into the earth the day before the election. Who had asteroid on their 2020 Bingo card? via Fox News: An asteroid with a diameter the size of a refrigerator could strike the Earth the day before the November election, according to celebrity scientist Neil deGrasse Tyson — but it’s not large enough to do any serious damage. The famed astrophysicist said the space rock, known as 2018VP1, is hurtling towards Earth at a speed of 25,000 miles per hour and may clip the planet on Nov. 2. “It may buzz-cut Earth on Nov. 2, the day before the Presidential Election,” he wrote on Instagram. But he added that the flying object is nothing to lose sleep over since “it’s not big enough to cause harm.”⠀⠀⠀ NASA already identified the asteroid that is rocketing toward earth, but stated the chances of it actually hitting the earth are currently less than one percent. “It currently has a 0.41% chance of entering our planet’s atmosphere, but if it did, it would disintegrate due to its extremely small size,” the organization stated. While this rock may not hit earth, or even if it does, it might now do much in the way of damage, but I’ve seen enough scary movies to know that when stuff like this happens, strange occurrences follow. So, sure, you may not have to worry about the asteroid, but if it passes by our planet and you suddenly…
