HEY GUYS!

I posted this yesterday but don’t think anyone here saw it. No comments, no notice. So it goes for fanposts I s’pose.

Anyway, go check out MY NEW BOOK OF CHIEFS’ POEMS AND SONG PARODIES! For the SB LVII season, 2022-23!

https://arrowheadguys.com/book-of-chiefs-poems-songs-2022-23-season-bring-the-ring/ The link to buy the book didn’t get linked, but you can copy and paste. It’s PDF. I get nothing.

And as always… GO CHIEFS!

not politics – or as I say polishits!!
this post is about looking out for others (save your $$$ just in case)
..
Better hope the clowns in DC — bump up the us debt ceiling, by June 1st. Especially for the peeps that are retired & need that social security $$$$$…….potential delay in payments.
..
..
If the U.S. defaults, it is unlikely that the federal government would be able to issue payments to millions of Americans, including our military families and seniors who rely on Social Security,” 
..
..
Good part: U.S. has never defaulted on its debt 
..
..
doesn’t matter who’s in office (democrat or republican). USA is on its 46th President — the us debt ceiling been raised MORE than 46th times.

personal well-being will always be more important than sports – that’s the purpose of that post.

I love USA, just not the greedy clowns in DC.

what is this “football” of which you speak?

methinks someone doth protest too much … Talking Heads, Ridiculous Opinions and “Pretend Scenarios” (omg we MUST have HOPKINS!) and even OTAs do not qualify as “football”

(my 3 cents)

Just as I predicted, a comment from you about non football stuff. I think that 10 football posts to every music video entitles me to the football-centric category. Just looking over all the comments this morning and after a great huddle with no less than 11 well put together “headlines” by NOVA. There was 27 comments with none being about football. 1 comment about football, which no one responded to. Then add to those comments, another member talking the debt ceiling. Today is typical for a morning huddle.

Chiefs blog? Give me a break

Just my 2 cents, asswipe

it is indeed a great MH … so, how many OTHERS have you jumped on today about “non football comments” … RIP? Hoosier? Pompano? Nova?

none of them??? oh, I get it …

you’re ENTITLED!

(whatever)

yes, you’re entitled to your own opinion … and pretty much everything on this blog is opinion (including what someone thinks about DeAndre Hopkins or the Chiefs roster or JJ Watt {wait, JJ Watt isn’t with the Chiefs!!!}

you’ve often said “if you don’t like it don’t read it and don’t comment” … you REALLY should take your own advice (at least on that)

as for your 12 yo “asswipe” comment … shove it (no personal attacks, remember? oh, I keep forgetting: you’re ENTITLED!)

On one hand, it’s a Chiefs blog and OTA’s and what-ifs are still related to football. We also agreed to leave politics (at least) out of the MH.

On the other hand, even the MH has notes on political and non-football events that happened on this date.

So… I say “you do you”.
