AmeriKKKa continues her inevitable (Yep.) slide into Third World madness.

Behold the fleas with which that mangy orange cur has infested conservatism! SUCKERS! Neo-Nazis battling commies in the streets? Welcome...

MLB umpires continue to run amok.

Thank goodness baseball died decades ago...

From AP via Washington's other newspaper:

Earn the privilege?: Yankees C Russell Martin says ump Laz Diaz punished him for arguing


Yankees catcher Russell Martin says home plate umpire Laz Diaz decided on an unusual way to punish him for arguing balls and strikes.


Martin says Diaz wouldn’t allow him to throw new baseballs back to his pitchers after fouls during New York’s 6-5 win over the Los Angeles Angels on Wednesday night.
 
Martin and Diaz got into it early in the game, and Martin says Diaz “was punishing me” by making all of the throws himself. Martin prefers to make the throws to keep his arm loose for base-stealers.

Martin says Diaz told him that throwing the balls was “a privilege I had to earn.”

Martin was mystified by Diaz’s treatment. He is a three-time All-Star selection and a Gold Glove winner with the Los Angeles Dodgers in 2007.

Diaz was unavailable for comment because Martin spoke nearly an hour after the game.

First of all, the word is SEX, not GENDER. If you are ever tempted to use the word GENDER, don't. The word is SEX! SEX! SEX! SEX! For example: "My sex is male." is correct. "My gender is male." means nothing. Look it up. What kind of sick neo-Puritan nonsense is this? Idiot left-fascists, get your blood-soaked paws off the English language. Hence I am choosing "male" under protest.
