PC bogies PGA's World Golf Championship, moving from Donald Trump's club to Mexico

After five decades, the World Golf Championship will move next year from the National Doral golf course in Miami to Mexico City. Since the course is owned by Donald Trump, this decision smacks of political correctness. 

Nonetheless, a political motivation was denied by PGA Commissioner Tim Finchem, who said that the tournament was unable to line up enough sponsorship. However, if Finchem would have worked with Trump, there is no doubt that sponsors would have been secured. 

Finchem said the decision was all based on financial considerations and that politics was not involved in “any way, shape or form.” What baloney! Finchem, a pathetic tool of political correctness, moved the tournament because Trump made controversial comments about Mexicans. 

According to the PC police, Trump is also anti-Hispanic because he wants a border wall with Mexico and wants to crackdown on illegal immigration. Moving the tournament to Mexico is a great way for the PGA to pander to Hispanic activists and show love to this supposedly aggrieved group.

Upon learning of the move, Trump quipped that the tour should have “kidnapping insurance” to protect the players in a country overrun by notorious drug cartels. The brilliant commissioner said that the tour probably did offer the kidnapping insurance, but that “it’s something we might not want to advertise.”

Of course for security reasons, moving the event to Mexico makes no sense. Players could very well become targets for the drug cartels and bands of criminals that run rampant in Mexico. 

Logistically, moving the tournament to Mexico will also be a challenge for players because the event preceding the World Golf Championship is in Florida. Players will be inconvenienced by forcing them to travel to Mexico City.  In fact, two-time US Open champion Andy North claimed that many players may skip the tournament altogether now that it has been moved to Mexico. 

With this move, the PGA has now been exposed as another liberal, politically correct sports organization. It joins the ranks of the NBA that wants to move the All-Star game from Charlotte North Carolina because of the state's new law regarding transgender bathrooms. 

Ironically, the decision was made without much input from players, who mostly vote Republican, according to anonymous surveys. 

In today's world, PC decisions are made regardless of what fans or players want. Sadly, this decision was made for the benefit of radical activists and media commentators.  It is a brave new world for the PGA, like it or not.

mass2On July 4, 1778, George Washington doubled liquor rations for the soldiers quartered in Princeton, NJ, as a way to celebrate Independence Day. It’s fitting, therefore, that the Fourth of July is America's top-selling beer holiday, according to the Beer Institute. It estimated, in 2013, that sales of beer on the 4th could total $1 billion, doubtlessly higher today. “In moderation,” claims a CA brewery investor, Grover McKean, “beer is tasty and healthy.” Who could disagree?

joe mikaAs Donald Trump faces the top world leaders this week, including a face-time with Vladimir Putin, and as his healthcare proposals face an uphill climb, his poll numbers for how the nation views him could be better.

According to a morning Consult/Politico poll released Wednesday morning, his tweets, including that against MSNBC's Mika Brzezinski, and his personality are not helping him, at all.

indy dayII know the calendar says we are approaching the 4th of July, but, it just doesn’t feel like Independence Day.

Perhaps it should.  It’s hot as heck.  The airlines have been packed. The hot dogs are ready for grilling.  The umps are saying, "play ball". The patriotic activities are scheduled. The fireworks are ready-for-blasting. 

Yet, it just doesn’t feel like independence day.

bill rights2To President Thomas Jefferson, July 4th celebrated more than the signing of the Declaration of Independence. He thought it was a link to the future. The message prominent colonists sent to King George III led to the Constitution and the Bill of Rights, the initial and most prominent feature of which is the First Amendment that guarantees free speech. It’s part of the country’s fundamental essence that each man and woman can say what they feel about government, or anything else, proving President Donald Trump needs some civics lessons.
