    If you are offended by what Franco said, ask yourself, is it because it was true?

    These media sources are moderately to strongly biased toward conservative causes through story selection and/or political affiliation. They may utilize strong loaded words (wording that attempts to influence an audience by using appeal to emotion or stereotypes), publish misleading reports and omit reporting of information that may damage conservative causes. Some sources in this category may be untrustworthy. See all Right Bias sources.



    • Overall, we rate Standpoint Magazine Right Biased due to word and story choices that favor the Right and mixed factually due to poor sourcing.

    Nearly everyone tends to believe what feeds their prejudices, its just plain easy to do. However there is a huge difference in how many people develop their prejudices, some develop over a lifetime of experiences and observations, and then their are those who fall into a herd type mentality. Every party has both. Unfortunately the herd mentality applies to nearly 3/4 of the population, with society ever increasingly structured to fit them better at the expense of those more introspective.

    While there is no doubt a "Trump cult", it is also undeniable that there is an anti Trump cult. I personally do not think cults are good for anyone, and you have every appearance of being in one. You are only capable of regurgitating what fits your prejudices and cannot grasp that this president has possibly done some good for this country, just like the last did "some" good too.

    I also predict that if there are players who keep the political foray going, viewership will continue to drop.

    Or, perhaps, you could follow your own lead and ask yourself if it's because it was not true?

    I would like to see the Vikings get to the SB, and add to their legacy!

    Given that we know Trumps impeachment is imminent, I wonder if his criticism of kapernick, for leaving his spot on the bench to get on his knee, will be included in the articles of impeachment.

    They are due. It was nice to watch them get frog stomped by the Eagles in the NFC Championship, but I'm really thinking about how much I would enjoy it if they made it to the big game before letting their fans down.

    What are your thoughts on Rodgers and Co this season?

    I don't know.
    He hasn't played yet.

    MN has some good RBs.

    I'd love to see them lose to K.C. in the SB.

    Detroit wins the NFC North?

    Rodgers plays poorly, blames everyone else.

    I doubt it though

But then, you already knew that! So why the heck do you care if I post or not?
    Not most. Just a few who cannot have a discussion without espousing their political views. You are right, why do I care! It is your right to believe what you want believe. And my right to have my own thoughts. I never understood why we sing the National Anthem at sporting events that are private businesses. Why not play the anthem at movies, plays, business meetings, etc.. Its not a national team, government or military event.

    My predictions for the upcoming season:


    1. Lower Attendance
    2. Lower TV Ratings
    3. Fewer CK sightings
    4. Continued Zeke Elliott holdout
    5. An abundance of Aaron Rogers arrogance
    6. Colin Cowturd continues to mention Labron James name at least once per show
    I used to be M&Ks Retrievers but for some reason I could no longer post. Ya think the mods trying to tell me something?

    At the time I posted my last post, it was MOST!

    Why do we even have a Flag, National Anthem, Pledge of Allegiance, etc.etc. I am sure you could spend some time and find someone who would"define' why and when on the internet, which may or may not be factual...


    To me it is all about 'Tradition'! We used to consider being patriotic a positive virtue.... not so much anymore! These symbolic traditions, in and of themselves, are not a big deal, but the pride and patriotism they represent is foundational to our countries long-term success. I think it is sad, and when coupled with the Governmental corruption and the overall breakdown of our educational system, over the last 50 years.... I think our country is at risk, and the long-term outlook is not good! I probably will not live long enough to see it all happen, but I fear it will be difficult times and may not end up in favor of our country or our citizens. I fear for my kids and Grandkids...they deserve more, but my generation and those after, have let them down...I pray I am wrong; I fear I am right!
