Re: “Contest Announcement: Design a New Name/Logo For the Cleveland Baseball Team

I am American Indian and I don't find the team name or the logo, in and of itself, offensive.

What is offensive is idiots taking liberty with the name and logo to dress themselves in moronic "Indian costumes" and and behave "in character".

If people wouldn't take the logo and extend it to offensive behavior, I doubt this controversy would exist. But, somehow, people think that the name/logo gives them permission to insult American Indians with their patronizing costumes and behavior. That is the real issue. Imagine if a team name/logo was construed to give idiots permission to ridicule your grandparents culture/religion/beliefs. It's a real issue..... and has absolutely nothing to do with "PC" or with flag burning.

Since the idiots are entitled to their "free speech" and allowed to have no respect or common sense that their behavior is insulting - and are apparently beyond learning this simple lesson - the solution is to battle the name/logo.

If the idiots could be "fixed" than the problem would be solved... and the logo not challenged.

Re: “Sociologists Urge MLB Commish to Rid Baseball of Native Nicknames, Logos

Rob Manfred will probably talk to Roger Goodell before any meeting with Paul Dolan......America's Game (NFL) and Dan Snyder hold the cards in this rebranding game -- and MLB is not emerging from underneath the gridiron shadow to take a stand on this issue.

This is BS---this "contest" has nothing to with the Cleveland Indians as a team or company.

Re: “Cleveland Police Union President Steve Loomis Suspended 6 Days

Loomis assaulted a CDP officer?
So Blue on Blue crime is OK?
Most people would be beaten or killed, arrested, indicted, and convicted if they did that.
So the guy who is all the time telling us about all these members of society that want to bring harm to police has actually brought harm to a police officer?
The guy who accuses BLM of presenting a "False Narrative" actually beat up a cop?
And this is supposed to be acceptable conduct by a member of the Cleveland Community Police Commission?
No, I don't thing our community includes assaulting a cop as part of community based policing - but apparently CPC Commissioner Loomis does.

Re: “Contest Announcement: Design a New Name/Logo For the Cleveland Baseball Team

I love all the people who suddenly become part Native American when the subject turns to Wahoo. Please stop acting like you just finished walking the Trail of Tears yesterday. Even if you really are part Cherokee or whatever that doesn't suddenly make you a spokesperson for real Native Americans.

At least now we know what it takes for a Cleveland cop to be punished for something.

Re: “Anti-Trump Protest Planned for Public Square on Friday

A lot of people attending this event have already been organizing for some while. Their judgment is that this will support their effort along those lines, rather than distract from it. Anyone who believes he or she has a better strategy should, by all means, jump in and prove it.

Meanwhile, I can almost guarantee you that the attendees will be substantially better educated than the average population (city, county, state or nation). You may think that they are misguided, foolish, whatever. But "uneducated" is very very unlikely, unless you're making up a completely arbitrary definition of education in order to suit your own biases.

As for "butthurt liberals," we're joking, right? 2016 was the triumph of butthurt, and liberals obviously weren't the beneficiaries. Rural voters were butthurt about not getting enough attention. Christians were once again butthurt about imagined persecution. Whiners of all stripes were butthurt about "PC conformity police," on the basis that it hurts their feelings to have their prejudices criticized by celebrities, media and coastal elites (even though the same whiners profess contempt for these groups).

Sorry, but when you win an election by minus two million votes, you had better be prepared to see and hear criticism. It is, I guess, a hard-knock life.
