The "progressive" neo-Fascists take the (wedding) cake, the Klein's freedom of religion, and their supporters' freedom of speech

When I heard that a Federal court had slapped Christian bakers Aaron and Melissa Klein with a $135,000 "fine" that will go to a lesbian couple for "pain and suffering" because the Kleins refused to bake a "wedding" cake for them, I assumed that people of good will and common sense from all over America would come together to raise the money.

I was half right.

GoFundMe promptly became a target of an attack by the Gaystopo- who are really, really into intimidating people and trampling all over the rights of those who disagree with them- and shut down the campaign to raise money for the Kleins for allegedly violating its terms of service. It is unclear whether they will get the $109,000 raised in a mere eight hours before the left-wing fascists struck, but it sounds to me like they won't.

They are appealing the Court's outrageous decision. Pray for them. As I've said before, I personally would have baked the cake with no qualms.

But they're not me- and the First Amendment trumps anti-discrimination laws. If it doesn't, the Bill of Rights and the American way of life are toast. We're talking here not only about the Klein's freedom of religion, but also about the freedom of speech of those who contributed or wanted to contribute.

Somehow a way has to be found to help the Kleins no matter what the kritarchy does. And we Christians need to be quite clear about our determination not to render to Caesar the things that are God's even if it means fines and imprisonment.

McMullin, Kasich, Hickenlooper, Huntsman, or somebody else sane in 2020!

I don't expect to be disenfranchised in 2020. I'm looking forward to Evan McMullin running against President Trump and whatever left-wing extremist the Democrats nominate. McMullin may or may not run for the Senate next year, and he may or may not run for president as an independent again next time around, but the nation can't afford to lose its most eloquent and intelligent critic of the populist takeover of the Republican party and the Executive Branch. We need the man in public life.

But interesting alternatives have developed. Ohio Gov. John Kasich has been mentioned as a potential primary challenger for Mr. Trump. I hope somebody continues the fight for the soul of my former party, even though I believe it to be a lost cause. Entrepreneur Mark Cuban is reportedly also considering a challenge to Mr. Trump. While I tend to see him at this point as somewhere to the left of where a candidate I would feel comfortable supporting might be, I would wish him well. Still, I see…

A modest proposal for a shocking innovation which is completely within the rules but which would, if adopted, revolutionize college football

I call it defense.

The idea- crazy as it may sound- is to supplement the scoring of points by your offense with an attempt to stop the other team from scoring them. Yeah, I know.  Really "out there," isn't it? But it has a history of winning not only games but championships. Modern college teams should try it more.

I'm a bit bummed about the Rose Bowl outcome but amused by the score. It seems that certain conferences aren't sure whether they're playing college football or high school basketball! I've noticed that in the scores of Sooner games. Last season the nation's college teams set a record by scoring an average of slightly more than 30 points each per game. That's a lot. Historically, that's a REAL lot.

The final score of the Rose Bowl was 54-48, though to be fair that was in double overtime. But to get there, the teams had to be tied 45-45 at the end of regulation! Last year was even worse. Southern Cal beat Penn State 52-49- in regulat…

Reflections on the present and future of my Blackhawks

As this season from hell creeps to its close at an excruciating pace and makes all of us devote more of our attention to spring training for the Cubs than we otherwise might, there are calls for the heads of Blackhawks GM Stan Bowman and even the greatest coach in Blackhawks history, Joel Quenneville.

No general manager or coach could have made Marian Hossa and Corey Crawford healthy or prevented Toews and Keith and Saad from having the worst seasons of their careers or foreseen that a series of trades most of which made perfect sense at the time wouldn't pan out. The Hawks are one season removed from the second-best regular season in their history. This will be the first time in a decade that they haven't made the playoffs.

With the exception of the Pens, maybe the Kings and (for different reasons) the Golden Knights, every other team in the NHL would kill to have won three Stanley Cups in the past decade. In fact, only the Hawks, the Pens, the Kings, the Wings, and the Brui…
