Sexual Harassment — Big Red Rules — 2017 III Edition

Sexual harassment, Big Red Car? Huh?

Big Red Car here on a sort of cold, potentially gloomy day in the ATX. On Earth as it is in Texas even in the brrr of 50F winter. [Don’t cry for me, Argentina, 65F and sunny this afternoon.]

So, unless you have been living under a rock, you have been following the news pertaining to: sexual assault, sexual abuse, sexual harassment, hostile work environments, bad manners — whew!

So, it looks like we need some Big Red Rules pertaining to all things sexual harassment.

Duke Basketball

Who knew? Top ranked Duke gets beat 89-84 by unranked Boston College. It was a good game with Boston College shooting 57.7% from three-point-land while Duke shot 26.7%.

[OK, so the key to beating Duke is for you to shoot almost 60% on your three pointers while they shoot 25%? Haha, simple game plan, no?]

I am a North Carolina Tar Heels fan except when they are out of the NCAA tournament (they won it all last year) and then, I hold my nose, get a cider ,and root for the Dukies.

Still, it is nice to see #1 Duke getting beat like a rented mule by an unranked opponent.

I will be attending church this morning to celebrate and to thank God for His wondrous works.

But, hey, what the Hell do I really know anyway? I’m just a Big Red Car. Be good to someoneĀ  today who doesn’t expect it. It really screws with their minds. Hook ’em, Heels!

The NFL — Wrecking A Brand

Big Red Car here on a cool Monday, bit cloudy in the ATX. This weekend the NFL went to work in a serious way to wreck its brand. It was a damn good start.

If you have the American flag, the Star Spangled Banner, veterans, patriots and patriotism, Mother Goose, and Donald Trump on one side while the NFL and some 13% of its players are on the other side, which side do you want? Which one walks away with the win or the lesser amount of damage? You decide.

Let’s review the bidding, shall we?

Last season, we had twenty-nine year old Colin Kaepernick, former San Francisco 49ers quarterback, take a knee during the playing of the National Anthem. When asked, “Why?” Colin responded, “To protest police oppression of people of color.”

11 September 2001 — FREEDOM

Big Red Car here on the sixteenth anniversary of one of the worst days in the history of the United States of America. It ranks with Pearl Harbor in the minds of Americans.

That day triggered what has been a continuous war on terror which took the US into a new phase in the history of our country. It has not changed since then, and, maybe, it has gotten worse.

The terrorists succeeded in one thing — imprinting that date on our collective memories for all time. In the important things, the terrorists failed miserably.

It has changed some things about our lives, but it has not changed the bedrock value of freedom. It is our freedom that was at the core of the terrorists hatred of the United States.

Freedom has prevailed and it always will. Freedom is what makes us Americans and freedom was the target of that attack.

God bless America. God bless freedom. Never forget who we are and what we stand for. No terrorist can change that value. Ever.

I know that and I am a Big Red Car.

Russian Espionage

Russian espionage, Big Red Car? Huh?

Big Red Car here on a lovely, cool, sunny ATX morning. Ahhh, breathe in the air of the last free state in the Union. On Earth as it is in Texas!

So, the Russians are engaged in espionage of the garden variety. Not the “collusion” kind, the real kind.

Wiley Russian spies looking for American secrets to purloin. Be on the lookout. Please note the skirt hems. A dead giveaway when dealing with Russian spies. Also, the footgear. Recent FSB grads getting ready to go out to the field.

 

Let me explain it to y’all.

The Flake — Senator Jeff Flake, Undocumented Democrat

The flake, Big Red Car? Who is the flake?

Big Red Care here on a sunny ATX day, not as sunny as usual, but nice, nonetheless. Today, the Big Red Car has a potato stuck in its tailpipe about Senator Jeff Flake, junior Undocumented Democrat #nevertrump Senator from Arizona.

We have two undocumented Democrat Senators from Arizona — Jeff Flake and John McCain. Couple of pieces o’ work?

So, Jeff Flake has written a book. A sitting Senator has written a book. The book is

Hero — What Does a Hero Look Like? DAVID BAILEY HERO

HERO — DAVID BAILEY — HERO

David Bailey dop

 

This is what a hero looks like, if your definition of a hero is someone willing to risk their neck to save someone else’s butt. The Big Red Car is fine with that definition. The Big Red Car has had the privilege of knowing a lot of brave people.

The guy on the crutches is one of two persons who shot it out with the shithead with the rifle at baseball practice in Virginia. Looks ordinary enough that you would not take note at a car wash? When the chips are down, it is guys like this who protect us.
