Football hero likes Trump & won’t kneel
August 30, 2018
Football hero likes Trump & won’t kneel. Football hall Of fame Jim Brown told “Fox & Friends” Tuesday morning that neither President Donald Trump nor America are racist. When asked if Trump was “a racist,” Brown replied: “I’m glad you asked me that. Of course not. Is America racist? Of course not.”
Brown also encouraged black Americans to stop blaming Trump for the high homicide rate because “it’s the black community that needs to address it…and the black community is not doing what it should do.”
The former NFL star suggested black people need to consider the positive and stop pushing the negative. “How many black athletes are millionaires because of..white fans that ago to those games?” He asked.
Firenze Sage: It is pretty hard to denigrate football’s greatest running back and civil rights hero Jim Brown but the carping race baiters were at it full on.
Impeach Trump? How? Another moronic try at impeachment by MSNBC
August 23, 2018
Another moronic try at impeachment.
MSNBC used the word impeachment 224 times in 18 hours.
Don’t go to MSNBC for facts on the Constitution. For the second day in a row, the network attempted to explain the process of “how Impeachment works.
” Once again, the cable channel screwed up. MSNBC Livehost Ali Velshi on Thursday lectured his viewers: “Think of the House as a prosecutor and the articles of impeachment is a document detailing the alleged crimes.” So far so good.
But then, an MSNBC graphic incorrectly trumpeted the number of senators needed to convict a president: “60 VOTES out of 100 SEATS.” No, it’s 67 senators.
Though his graphic got it wrong, Velshi himself gave the correct information. Today, that is. On Wednesday, he incorrectly asserted: “Two-thirds of the Senate, 60 as it stands right now, are needed to vote guilty for impeachment.” On that day, Velshi said of the House’s role in impeachment: “Next, the House votes. At least two-thirds of the chamber has to approve the impeachment.” No, just a simple majority is needed.
On Thursday, Velshi managed to get that section right, noting: “A simple majority is all that’s needed to approve the impeachment.” BUT he made another error. The host claimed: “The Senate acquitted Andrew Johnson and Bill Clinton without impeaching them.” No, they were impeached in the House. Just not convicted in the Senate.
One might ask: Why is MSNBC giving daily updates attempting to explain the impeachment process? Another question might be: If they are going to explain impeachment, could Velshi and the network at least do so properly?
Firenze Sage opines: If these idiots are so keen on impeaching Trump,you’d think they’d at least learn how to do it.
Or is it fake news? The choice is fake news or stupidity.
What’s Palestine? [All Walls must go says Cory Booker]
August 8, 2018
Is Cory Booker pro Palestine? Just not understand Israel’s need for a defense Wall? Or just fuzzy thinking? His denial does not hold up.
Senator Cory Booker was photographed holding a sign bearing a pro-Palestinian movement slogan. The image appeared on the Twitter feed of the U.S. Campaign for Palestinian Rights, a self-described “coalition of 330+ groups” working “for a US policy toward Palestine/Israel based on freedom, justice, and equality.”
“From Palestine to Mexico, all the walls have got to go,” the sign read.
Booker, however, claims he wasn’t aware that the sign called for an end to the border wall between Israel and the Palestinian territory, but rather only a U.S. border wall with Mexico.
“In one instance, amid the rush, he was posing for a photo and was passed a sign to hold – he didn’t have time to read the sign, and from his cursory glance he thought it was talking about Mexico and didn’t realize it had anything to do with Israel,”
Firenze Sage opines: Do you suppose he [Cory Booker] reads proposed legislation with the same acuity?
Power tends to corrupt, absolutely [criminalize plastic straws]
August 6, 2018
Posted: 05 Aug 2018 08:52 AM PDT
(Steven Hayward)A little noticed detail in Santa Barbara’s recent drive to criminalize plastic straws, which culminated in the Santa Barbara city council taking testimony from a nine-year-old about the planetary menace, has come to light in recent days. During that council session, councilman Jesse Dominguez said the following in response to citizens who asked “what’s next?”:
Firenze Sage: save the planet [from climate change]- fall in ditch
April 8, 2018
Let’s do it in the dirt …. as climate change advocacy works … when done by Al Gore’s daughter who lay down in a pipeline protesting climate change and safety issues.
Karenna Gore was among demonstrators who tried to block construction activity on the site by lying in a trench dug for the pipeline and refusing to move until firefighters removed them, said protest group Resist the Pipeline & Stop the West Roxbury Lateral.
Judge Mary Ann Driscoll has dismissed criminal charges against protestors including Al Gore’s daughter on the grounds that their actions were necessary to prevent climate change.
Judge sets aside charges in pipeline protest
Jordan Graham Thursday, March 29, 2018
The protesters, including Karenna Gore, the daughter of former Vice President Al Gore, were facing charges of trespassing and disturbing the peace after climbing into a construction trench. On Tuesday, prosecutors asked a judge to convert the criminal charges into civil infractions, saying in the event of a conviction they were unlikely to ask for any further punishment. After allowing the motion, Judge Mary Ann Driscoll found the defendants not responsible, saying she agreed with their argument that their actions were necessary to combat climate change.
“Based on the very heartfelt expressions of the defendants who believe, and I don’t question their beliefs in any respect, who believe in their cause because they believe they were entitled to invoke the necessity defense, I’ll accept what they said,” Driscoll said.
Firenze Sage: What if they were covered with dirt and the defense was we don’t believe in climate change — or the justice system for that matter.
Do what you want as your beliefs will save thee.
Married white women are deplorable [do what men tell them says Hilary Clinton]
March 12, 2018
Why white married women voted for Trump?
Hillary Clinton said that white women voted for President Trump during the 2016 presidential election because their husbands told them to, during a discussion at the India Today Conclave on Saturday.
“[Democrats] do not do well with white men and we don’t do well with married, white women,” Clinton explained. “And part of that is an identification with the Republican Party, and a sort of ongoing pressure to vote the way that your husband, your boss, your son, whoever, believes you should.”
Firenze Sage: Will this hag ever broom her way under the carpet?
A TAX on TEA started the American Revolution. Freedom from Government.Now CALIF proposes TAX on WATER. Reasons NOT to tax water?
March 12, 2018
A TAX on TEA started the American Revolution. Freedom from government.
Now the State of California proposes a TAX on WATER.
Why should all California households pay roughly a $12 WATER Tax per year?
Tell Santa Cruz County Supervisors NO on SB 623.
Speak up! Write your representatives.
Speak back to State Senator Bill Monning who started this nonsense!
Here’s reasons why it’s important to speak up:
- The proposed rate can be INCREASED when the government chooses. All taxes typically go up …
- Twenty-five percent (25%) of money collected can be — will be?–spent on administration.
- Lower income families will be overly impacted. Why charge more for water than it costs? Lower income persons can sign up for an exemption — but will they? This tax is one more burden on those with lower incomes. California already has the biggest disparity between RICH and POOR already.
- Who will really pay? Consumers. All costs of government are passed on and the State of CA is not required to pay back agencies for costs to collect.
- Polluters of ground water can continue to pollute and not affected by this law. Makes no sense. Polluters are off the hook until 2035.
- This law turns water providing agencies into tax collecting agencies. This is wrong.
Becky Steinbruner says NO on proposed Water Tax.
Here’s Becky’s Letter to the Santa Cruz Board of Supervisors:

which RAIL TRAIL best for people living in Santa Cruz County? Still time to tell the RTC what you think!
February 24, 2018
Which RAIL TRAIL best for people who live in Santa Cruz County?
Do we want a wide TRAIL that can handle electric bikes and wheel chairs and walkers or do we want a narrow trail along a high fence that preserves the rail tracks for a train that may never happen?
There’s still time for you to tell the Regional Transportation Center what you think.
Measure D — which passed in 2017 — preserves the current rail tracks and permits only a narrow trail.
Maybe there’s a better solution? Read and decide.
Click here for a comparison of the wide one versus narrow one.

Firenze Sage: depends on whose ox is being gored [powerful Democrat woman accused of sexual misconduct with male staff]
February 10, 2018
Whose ox is being gored: If something awful happens to someone you don’t know, or perhaps dislike, you are likely to ignore it in the first instance, or may even applaud it in the latter instance. If something awful happens to you or your loved ones, well, that’s a different story altogether.
Leading #MeToo California Assemblywoman Accused of Sexual Misconduct
Daniel Fierro of Cerritos told POLITICO that in 2014, as a 25-year-old staffer to Assemblyman Ian Calderon, he was groped by Garcia, a powerful Democratic lawmaker who chairs the Legislative Women’s Caucus and the Natural Resources Committee.
He said she cornered him alone after the annual Assembly softball game in Sacramento as he attempted to clean up the dugout. Fierro, who said Garcia appeared inebriated, said she began stroking his back, then squeezed his buttocks and attempted to touch his crotch before he extricated himself and quickly left.
From The Sacramento Bee:
Garcia was “clearly inebriated,” Fierro said, and grabbed his arm. At first he thought she was just trying to steady herself, but then Garcia grabbed his back, he said, and began to stroke it.
“Her hand was there and it slipped down to my butt and she tried to squeeze,” Fierro said. He said he knew then that it had crossed a line and he spun away from her to leave. As he was walking past her, Fierro said, Garcia made a grab for his crotch.
“The entire encounter lasted 30-45 seconds,” he said. “I was in shock. I was embarrassed.”
Firenze Sage: Will she [Garcia] resign or rather attend one of the many classes devoted to telling people that sexual assault is wrong .
