How about them Cowboys!
The Dallas Cowboys prevailed 31-26 Thursday for a big win against division rival Washington, but the Cowboys are going to have to play better defense if they expect to make a deep playoff run and that starts with finding a pass rush. Redskins’ QB Kurt Cousins threw 53 passes for 449 yards in the game and was not sacked or intercepted. The Cowboys defense simply could not get off the field, not forcing a single three-and-out. Washington punted one time in the game and controlled the clock for 33:24 minutes, compared to 26:36 for Dallas — which may be the only thing that prevented the Cowboys’ “devastatingly methodical” offense from topping 40 points.
Central Floridians may want to pay heed that the union-led Fight for $15 movement promises its “largest, most disruptive protest ever” next week. You can be sure local union activists disguised as fast-food workers will target the McDonald’s on International Drive …the only question is how militant will they be?
“We are going to hit hard — pushing our most disruptive protests yet on Nov. 29. […] and risking arrest via mass civil disobedience in front of McDonald’s restaurants from Detroit to Denver,” the union organizing group warned on its website. They will also target a number of airports around the country.
The Service Employees International Union, which knows a thing or two about being militant, poured $20 million into Fight for $15 in 2015 alone.
This may not be a good sign…
Former Florida Gov. Jeb “Common Core” Bush is praising Donald Trump’s choice for Secretary of Education, Betsy DeVos, calling her an “outstanding pick.”
“I cannot think of a more effective and passionate change agent to press for a new education vision, one in which students, rather than adults and bureaucracies, become the priority in our nation’s classrooms,” Bush said in a statement on Facebook.

In seeing newly elected state Senator Linda Stewart endorse Wes Hodge for chairman of the Orange County Democratic Executive Committee, I have to wonder if black Democrats are ever going to make it to the head of the table locally.
In what is the worst kept secret in Orange County, African-Americans have long taken issue with how events play out in the Orange County Democratic Party, which has been little more than a play-toy passed between the Randolph clique and Team Grayson.
With the election just days away, there will be at least one option to elect a person of color.
Lonnie Thompson, a partner of True Results Communications and Consulting, announced his candidacy to head up the party last week after incumbent chairman Juan Lopez, a ranking member of the Grayson camp, announced he would not be seeking reelection.
To his credit, Thompson has NOT echoed the racist actions of Symone Sanders, an Africian-American who served as Bernie Sander’s spokesperson during his presidential run, who said this week of the race to head up the Democratic National Committee, “We don’t need white people leading the Democratic party right now.”
Talk about systemic racism…
