To be honest with you, they were predictable and, as President Trump tweeted, &ldquo;boring.&rdquo; There were so many candidates, so little time, and the questions were slanted so far to the left that I couldn&rsquo;t decide who actually won. Who do you think the winners and losers were? &mdash; Absent of Analysis<br />\n Dear Absent:<br />\n The winners were the snowflakes and buttercups whose Christmas just arrived in June. NBC held the debates on two different nights, not because of the volume of candidates, but because the stage couldn&rsquo;t hold all the free goodies the candidates were promising. Free college, free health care, free monthly income, free border crossings, free, free, free .... everything free. That is unless you&rsquo;re a top one percenter who are somehow magically supposed to pay for all of these newly discovered &ldquo;rights.&rdquo;<br />\n The losers were people like you and me who watched this gameshow called &ldquo;Who Can Out Liberal a Liberal?&rdquo;. I&rsquo;m not trying to avoid your question but because of the format, it was difficult to tell who won or lost. Almost every candidate gave the same answer which can be whittled down to more government programs and spending, except with this motley crew, the proposed government intervention is on steroids.<br />\n Honestly, I watched the debates primarily to see who some of the lesser known candidates were and if they even had a chance.Before the debates I saw a top tier consisting of Biden, Sanders, Warren, Harris and Buttigieg with the second tier being a mish mash of the remaining 20. After this first debate I see no change.</p>\n<p> DEAR MARK:<br />\n One of the weirder things to come out of the Democrat debate was Julian Castro claiming that transgendered females should have the right to an abortion. If I&rsquo;m not mistaken, that would be a man who transitioned into a woman, so the biology isn&rsquo;t there. Do they even know this isn&rsquo;t possible? &mdash; Will Sty the Wise Guy<br />\n Dear Will: &nbsp;<br />\n Democrats are so wrapped up in identity politics, the LGBTQ community and abortion that they feel even more enlightened by supporting abortion rights for humans who can never have an abortion. But practically speaking, the first trans woman to get pregnant won&rsquo;t be aborting that baby because he/she will make millions on their movie rights.</p>\n<p> DEAR MARK: &nbsp;<br />\n I&rsquo;m a sports guy and watching sports is my retreat from the real world. Unfortunately politics is creeping more and more into my &ldquo;retreat.&rdquo; Now the NBA has caved to political correctness and will not call the owners of their teams &ldquo;owners.&rdquo; I guess some of the players find the term offensive because it harkens back to the days of slavery. The NBA instead has chosen the word &ldquo;governor&rdquo; which sounds even more haughty if you ask me. Do you see an end to all of this kind of nonsense? &mdash; Mavericks Fan<br />\n Dear Fan:<br />\n As long there are liberals, supported by an accommodating media, telling weak-minded people when to be offended then the political correctness band wagon will keep on rolling. Capitulations like this by the NBA only dilute real racism and discrimination and becomes the boy crying wolf.<br />\n Players in the NBA are some of the wealthiest people in the country, flying first class, eating the finest food, staying in the best hotels and driving the most expensive vehicles so its difficult for most of us to see how these players can make any connection between the game they are paid millions to play and slavery. Maybe back in the sixties or seventies but today, come on man.<br />\n For years nobody thought twice about the term &ldquo;owner&rdquo; as being offensive or being linked to the days of slave owners. The owners of these teams don&rsquo;t own people, they own businesses and the players are employees just like the hundreds of other employees associated with the respective teams. But I&rsquo;ll play this silly PC game so as not to offend anyone. I am now the governor of my house and the governor of my car. I had a problem with my dry cleaning and asked to see the governor of the business. I paid a compliment to the governor of our favorite BBQ joint for his fine brisket. Thanks, snowflakes, this is kind of fun.<br />\n &nbsp;<br />\n Email your questions to <a href=\"mailto:marklevy92@aol.com\">marklevy92@aol.com</a>.</p>\n', created = 1576417608, expire = 1576504008, headers = '', serialized = 0 WHERE cid = '2:ef2988628b1db9de3f6154de60c2fed3' in /home/conserva/public_html/includes/cache.inc on line 112.
