I Can't Stay Healthy

  • Forty-eight hours later, Derrick Rose finished his thought.

    Thank goodness.

    It was worth the wait to hear Rose finally say something that made Chicago well up in pride instead of wince, to see evidence of Rose's maturity our city has become quick to judge. We all know Rose can be inelegant as a public speaker. But this wasn't about Rose finding the right words as much as sending a strong message. This was about a professional athlete with a social conscience extending his reach and, whether you agreed with his stance or not, engendering respect.
Hey Haugh - watch those teeth as you slobber on Rose's sack.

Rick Telander is even worse:
  • Gestures mean something. So do words. So, even, do T-shirts.

    So when Derrick Rose wore a black T-shirt with the words ‘‘I Can’t Breathe’’ in white letters on the front during warmups before the Bulls’ game Saturday against the Warriors at the United Center, it meant something.

    People noticed. Rose certainly meant for people to notice.
Rose is the spokes-asshole for a "movement"? A movement of the willfully ignorant we suppose. People (or folks) who ignore mounds of evidence, mountains of actual physical evidence rooted in observable fact, scientific analysis, legal definitions and the laws of physics.

People (or folks)? Did we just go there? We did, because of this:


That's the hero, throwing up for the nation. He denies it meant anything and ESPN ran his excuses. But anyone who worked in Englewood knows the stories, has talked to the players. Rose was thick as thieves with the gang. There was an "understanding" among the hierarchy that Rose was to be supported and protected. And that isn't because he wasn't part of the organization.

And the people that he ran with have visited untold misery to tens-of-thousands. Murders numbering the thousands. Many more thousands maimed. Hundreds upon hundreds of families ruined, bankrupted, torn apart by narcotics. And not a couple murders and many more injuries of Chicago Police Officers.

And to get to this point, all you have to do is ignore the fact that "choking" people can't speak over and over about how they can't breathe. Ignore the autopsy report that says a man died an hour later from a heart attack due to being over 350 pounds and failing to obey the completely lawful and justified orders of police officers enforcing the duly passed laws of a legislative body.

Just manufacture a story, put it on a t-shirt, and have a member of a criminal enterprise broadcast it on national television because he can put a ball in a hoop - if he manages not to stub his toe on an air molecule that is. Nice movement. Nice role model.

I'm sorry. What are these rags you speak of? The Fibune and Scum Times? I never read them. Then again, I never read any leftist propaganda if I can help it. I certainly wouldn't pay for these rags. One can find actual news from actual reporters if one looks outside of the communist confines if Chicago.

He'll have another career ending knee injury and we can all laugh at the dumb, gangster, college test cheater, glass man thug. Then he can take his millions and go back to his gang. Hes just a follower who doesn't think for himself. Ever heard the phrase "shut up and sing?" Well "shut up and play ball!" Jerk

Jimmy Butler can take his place any day.

Let's also mention the fact of his bogus grades all through high school and college and the fact that he never passed a class without the school changing them. If I'm not mistaken the college he went to forfeited all the games he played in. What a great role model. But in Englewood where the gang bangers are the role models he fits right in.

Derrick Rose is endearing and a hero for Telander kisses his behind. Now Charles Barkley is articulate and speaks the truth from his perspective and is villified. Mike Ditka speaks his mind and makes valid points. He is immediately villified and made fun of. Morrissey runs a column where he takes iron mike to task for what he says.
Bottom line is you have freedom of speech....so long as your speech is politically correct or has a liberal angle

Your two for two, SCC.

It took this mushmouth 48 hrs to make a statement because it took that long for him to memorize what he had to say. I met a kid that worked at the Park District that went to school with Rose. He said that Rose was so stupid, he was borderline retarded. Remedial classes were too hard for him.

Please answer: Has a single celebrity or sports "hero" spoken out in support of the police in any way at all? Except Charles Barkley. Have they once said that the individuals involved should have simply cooperatedwith the police, or in Michael Browns case simply not attacked a police officer. This whole thing is so backwards!!

None of this is new, anyone remember Scottie Pippin's uuw arrest back in the 90's. Just another dog with a lot of dough, who can't manage to squeeze in a full season. And the Bull's coach always talking him up about what a great guy he is. Sounds like the coach must be some kind of ball handler.

I'm going to lose my mind if I hear another talking head say in essence, it was ruled a homicide why isn't the officer being charged with murder. They know the answer they just want to get people stirred into a frenzy. They're intentionally not telling people that homicides include all killings of humans. Many homicides, such as murder and manslaughter, violate criminal laws. Others, such as a killing committed in justified self-defense or police acting in their official capicity are not criminal.

Where were Rose and the other "protesters," with their "I Can't Breathe" T-shirts and die-ins when little children were being gunned down in the streets and in their homes the past 20 years or so.

You want to solve the race issue? Then start a discussion about values. There is no "white" way, or "black" way, there is only the "right" way to live.

And whether the ministers or the race-baiters like it or not, you can't have children bearing children, children being born out-of-wedlock, or such behavior being accepted as normal.

Well now if you pay close attention to Bulls Home games, or any other basketball games look and see that most of the ticket holders are white, and I bet if you took a survey of this crowd they would know or are related to a cop. My point is, why do we as a society condone the conduct of these minority players who think that the world owes them something. we don't. my next question is why besides being sprots fans even acknowledge these THUGS. do something for law enforcement, give up your tickets to one game. let whoemever give them to certain groups who will flood the United Center and act like wild savages on National TV and show the world how not cultured or caring these groups are. I really am not a prejudged person but enough is enough, boycott these thugs, don't buy their endorsed clothing, etc. but I know this won't happen because our race is not united, we have no balls to protect our cops, and other first responders, we deserve what we get. Stay Safe out there !!!! Happy Holidays, a Retired Sgt. who loves you all,.

I use to really admire this guy, the under 1%er who grew up in Englewood and made good. Its obvious his people instructed him to say something, just to get on the bandwagon. Its plain to see, he is just plain stupid! He can't put three intelligent words together. Everyone knows about his lack of academic prowess. He won't be in the league in three years-don't have the mental or physical toughness. Be probably living in a three flat off of 63rd and St. Louis two years after that.
