Canadian Hockey Player Refuses to Wear Silver Medal

Just in case anyone thought the entitlement mentality was exclusive to Americans.

From USA Today:
The disappointment showed on their faces and for Canadian defenseman Jocelyne Larocque there was no celebration in winning the silver medal.After the United States won a thrilling shootout for its first Olympic gold in two decades, the medal ceremony took place. Larocque had the reaction that was most noteworthy — yanking off the silver immediately after it was placed around her neck.'Just hard,' she told reporters. 'We were going for gold.'

Since Shakir considers the word 'America' to be exclusionary, perhaps the American Civil Liberties Union should remove the word 'American' from their name.

Things Democrats Won't Applaud

There's been much ado about the response of Democrats (or utter lack thereof) during President Trump's State of the Union address. In case you missed it, Washington Free Beacon has a brief video showing the highlights... A friend of mine posted a comment on his Facebook feed asking his Democrat friends what was in the State of the Union that they disagreed with. Some of the responses (not from Democrats, mind you) suggested that Democrats were simply waiting for talking points from Pelosi and Schumer before expressing their opinion.
There is a perfectly good explanation why the Democrats did not applaud for the successes of the current administration. But first...

Q: In what year was The Civil Rights Act signed into law?
If you said "1964!", congratulations. You're right.

The correct answer is, "Which one?"
