      Cowboys versus Redskins - now that just sounds correct.
       
      Hello friends, JimmiJo here along with THE Spaceman Spiff. Space is already on the sidelines, yucking it up with the important people. Me? I'm thinking how grateful I am for the 3-car accident on the beltway...
       
      If you cannot get up for this game, there isn't enough viagra made on earth for you. After all; the Redskins are hosting their eternal rival, the Cowboys. Winner will be sitting on top of the division, with a truckload of bragging rights.
       
      What's not to like?
       
      Well, for starters, everybody and their mom is inactive. Chris Thompson Jamison Crowder, Paul Richardson, Quinton Dunbar; all inactive. What a time to have have your top two receivers out. The chatter here in the press box is Washington should do what they can to bring in receivers - to include making a trade with the Raiders for Amari Cooper.
       
      Then there's the question of which Redskins show up? They could come out and light Dallas up. Or, post an anemic effort to suffer another embarrassing lost. Neither would surprise me.
       
      One this is for sure, the distribution in fans is something like 55-45 Redskins. Already an embarrassment. Until you consider this team has done much to earn the lack of support.
       
      Still, you have offer the finger in the middle to those fans who sold their tickets to Dallas fans. What were you thinking?
       
      Back shortly...
       
      Inactives
       
      The Redskins declared the following players as inactive:
      o   No. 10 WR Paul Richardson Jr.
      o   No. 23 CB Quinton Dunbar
      o   No. 25 RB Chris Thompson
      o   No. 30 S Troy Apke
      o   No. 55 C Casey Dunn
      o   No. 74 T Geron Christian Sr.
      o   No. 80 WR Jamison Crowder
       
      The team held a touching tribute to my friend Rich Tandler, who passed this week.

      Half
       
      Did you hear the one about the team that got chance after chance but couldn't score more than a touchdown?
      That's right; they are tied at 7 at the half and completely anemic in the second half.
       
      "Against the run of play" is a term you hear in soccer all the time. It is applicable here. It means the better team is either tied or trailing.
       
      Whoever said football was fair?
       
      Washington needs to find a way to get hot in the second half. The Dallas Cowboys are infinitely beatable today.

      How do you like them apples?
      The Washington Redskins sent them home happy today. Along the way my ulcer started bleeding, I threw up twice, and peed the chair I was sitting in.
      Up by 10 at the two-minute warning, I did not expect to be hoping for a missed field goal to avoid overtime. But there I was, crossing fingers and toes and noticibly relieved when the ball bounced off the upright to seal the win.
      A lot of things had to go right for the Dallas Cowboys to even have a shot at the end. A lot more things went right for Washington.
      The Redskins held Ezekiel Elliot to just 33-yards rushing. They forced two fumbles by Dak Prescott, one of which went for a Redskins' touchdown, and sacked him a total of four times. 
      Ryan Kerrigan had his best day of the season, sacking Prescott twice, one of which caused the fumble for the score. Preston Smith scored the touchdown off of the fumble. Jonathan Allen and and Ryan Anderson each logged a sack. DJ Swearinger hit Prescott square on the ball to cause the other fumble by Prescott.
      And then there was the offense.
      Adrian Peterson defies time and physics in what he can still do on the football field. His ability to change directions instantly, the speed he still posesses, and his ability to play through multiple injuries is astonishing. He ran for 99-yards on 24-carries with a 4.1 yard per carry average. 
      Kapri Bibbs, the other back; added just 13-yards rushing. But as a receiver he caught 4 passes for 43-yards and the first touchdown of the game.
      Josh Doctson reeled in 3-receptions for 43-yards. Jordan Reed added 43-yards on his two catches. Maurice Harris logged 2 for 22-yards.
      Alex Smith had a adequate outting. He went 14/25 for 178 yards and a touchdown for a quarterback rating of 98.1. He was sacked once.
      His obvious miss of Jeremy Sprinkle running free in the end zone is almost cause for termination. Connect on that throw and the game is much more comfortable at the end. 
      The real stars of this show were the fat guys in the trenches. The offensive line that opened highway lane-wide holes for Peterson to run through, and the defensive line that wreaked such havok all game. 
       
      But we have to thank Dallas as well for things like an illegal snap to back the field goal unit up at the end. The holding call that negated the big gain one play before the sack/fumble/score was huge. They seemed to find ways to beat themselves.
       
      Despite the above, Dallas was right there until last miss that struck the goalpost. The win was entirely too close for comfort.
       
      But now that's it's over, I sure am enjoying the win.
       
      The Redskins sit alone at the top of the division after 6-weeks. They travel to New York next week where they can continue to help themselves with a win.
       
      But just because New York currently resides in the toilet does not mean they intend to roll-over and play dead. Washington will have their hands full if they don't get more production out of the offense.
       
      That's next week though. For now, I am intent on  enjoying an excellent victory. Against the Dallas Cowboys.
       
      What's not to like?
       
      Talk soon!

Right. I can't think of another time a President so carelessly and unapologetic-ly undermined the first lady's initiative. 

 

Come on. He undermines his own. 

 

Remember when he had lawyers in court arguing "it has nothing to do with religion", while Trump is standing up taking pride in his "Muslim ban"?

Or when he called Dr. Ford "very credible" right after she testified.  http://fortune.com/2018/09/28/trump-ford-credible-witness/

 

Or when he called the Republican's attempted repeal of Obamacare "mean" in the middle of the fight.  https://www.cnn.com/2017/06/13/politics/trump-senators-health-care-white-house-meeting/index.html

After many moons of dog whistling Trump just outright says it.

 

 

You're not a citizen?  Then Trump gives zero ****s about you.  You could be two minutes from swearing in as a citizen, but if the Saudis need you dead then ****, tough luck.

 

Legal permanent residents are basically afforded all rights of citizens except being President and voting in some elections.  This kind of flippant response is so bad it's unconscionable.

Trump only cares about short term gain, profit and publicity. Long term consequences or doing what is morally right does not seem to be a factor.

Surely other governments will not be pushing the boundaries further, and testing how much they can get away with after seeing his statements re: Saudi Arabian money. Surely not.

Maybe Melania really means that Donald bullies her.  (Though I’m not sure how much time they spend together)

Well, to be fair, we've already established that Russia can use a WMD in the capital city of our biggest ally with no consequences.

Interesting.  Could this be part of a three way deal between Saudi Arabia, Turkey, and US?  Saudis pay off Turkey, Turkey agrees to let Saudi Arabia investigate their own crime and gives the pastor to the US to help us forget about the journalist.

What are you talking about? Don't you remember that time Obama rode around the WH lawn on a mower in his underwear while screaming "**** VEGETABLES! **** SCHOOL LUNCH! **** EDUCATION! CHILDHOOD OBESITY FOR THE WIN! YOLO!" ?

Okay, that's the hardest I've laughed in forever. 🤣

Now can I have him back in the WH?

So Trump is looking to stifle protesting?  It's like the Bush admins "free speech zones" but way worse?

Kanye and Trump are alike in that they both have visible mental issues that are currently going untreated. Both are getting worse. I know Kayne did spend some time in the hospital for his issues. Trump hasn't.

 

Still, guy takes off his Maga hat. Goes to the Gtown Apple Store. Stands on a table and has another rant. This is what we expect from the seriously ill who need help. Trying to figure out "why" is nonsense. Same with Trump.

The way Kanye straight up lied about the SNL cast "bullying me over my hat" makes me wonder if there is early signs of schizophrenia setting in?

Kanye said the red cap made him feel like Superman. Well, we all know what red kryptonite does to Superman, right?

Kanye has real mental health issues, politics aside. It’s sad and won’t end well.

Remember when the way to measure Trump's job performance was the stock market?
