Muhammad Ali 1942-2016

The Louisville Lip has been silenced.  It’s been 35 years since his last fight but he’s still the greatest.  Pugilist, activist, war protester, pacifist, principled, Muslim.  Ali created his brand and then used it for good.  Civil rights, pacifism, Parkinson’s issues all on center stage thanks to Ali.

Quotes from the greatest of all time.

The man who views the world at 50 the same as he did at 20 has wasted 30 years of his life.
Don’t count the days, make the days count.
Live every day like it’s your last because someday you’re going to be right.

  1. It was interesting to how large Ali loomed over Louisville when I was there. Sometimes you would come on a building with a huge banner of Ali hangin on it’s side. Things like that.

    He was the greatest.

  3. AP just declared Hillary the presumptive nominee

    So again I have to ask: Is Donald trying NOT to be elected?

  5. California wasn’t so close after all.

    Why is Bernie staying in the race? Seems pointless except to get Trump elected.

      Bev,
      Bernie is staying in the race to get momentum for the movement. Nothing more. Don’t forget he said that he’ll do anything not to get Trump elected.

      And remember, Hillary stayed in after Obama clinched, until she could get him to help pay off her campaign debt.

        Congrats to Hillary and her supporters. History has been made.

          It’s entertaining to watch the right’s outrage about what Trump said about the Hispanic Judge. Where was their outrage on the Muslim ban? The illegals being rapists? Oh, back then they didn’t think Trump had a chance…

  7. Yes, history has been made, that’s what we Dems do! 🙂

  8. President about to endorse Hillary, the worm has turned 🙂

  9. Good to see that the prez and party leadership have joined the fight, quick and hard. We have to bring the entire power of the Democratic party to bare down hard on Donald. Prevent him from controlling the news cycle. The Hun are at the gates, we can take nothing for granted!

    OK, we have Bernie finally saying he will work with Hillary to dump Trump. Let the contest begin.

  11. Quite a day, says something about Hillary and her campaign that things have come together so quickly and with such vigor.

      CNN’s Randy Kaye had an interesting piece on how vicious and dishonest Hillary was during the 2008 campaign against Obama. Even after Obama had clinched. Good thing Bernie isn’t that way. CNN cited no negative ads from Bernie about Hillary.

      Thom Hartmann has some real concern about the election citing who could be so stupid as to vote for Reagan in 1980 or Bush in 2000.

        New Fox News poll shows Clinton & Trump still tied. Both still have high unfavorables. No Clinton bump yet but be interesting to see what happens when Obama, Biden, Edwards and Sanders hit the campaign trail.

  12. Does your browser have a refresh button?

    Fox News Poll: Trump drops, now trails Clinton,
    The new poll shows Hillary Clinton with a three-point edge over Donald Trump (42-39 percent) in a hypothetical matchup. That’s within the poll’s margin of error.

    RCP shows Hillary ahead by 4 points,

      Why yes it does Brian. Thanks alot for askin’. Though I’m not quite clear why you did.

      The fact that the poll is within the margin of error means you can’t tell who’s ahead. I misspoke when I said it was a statistical tie. The reality is that Trump could be ahead or Hillary could be way ahead. Of course a generic national poll doesn’t indicate a winner due to the electoral collage. It’s mere an indicator of sentiment. Unfavorables for both are still high.

      As to Trump’s poll numbers collapsing, they should. The “never Trump” crowd have been slamming him non-stop about the judge’s ability to be impartial. Ditto the talking heads that created Trump and are now starting to get worried. But given the MOE it’s difficult to tell if they are “collapsing” or even if they are trending down.

    Nothing is sacred. Burning Man is changing.

  14. Wow. Was online with you guys (at the old blog) when Virginia Tech happened and an ambitious shooter in Orlando has just eclipsed that death toll. Madness. This has to stop.

  15. Only John Bolton could blame Prez Obama for the Orlando massacre. Well, maybe a few other holy rollers also.

  16. They were having fun – with their friends – not hurting anyone else. What great fodder for those who disagree with either grouup – A Muslim killing gays. Something good to see – A Muslim donating blood for gays. People and animals should not be targets for an AK-15. When will it make a difference to Congress and the NRA? It didn’t when one of their own was nearly killed, Gabby Giffords. What will make the difference or will there ever be something that causes a change. So far nothing has. Scary and Sad.
