Libertarians are out of their mind when they say we can't legislate morality. Every single piece of legislation is an expression of morality. Telling people to leave you alone and let you live your life is a view of morality. The Left says that you can't legislate morality only as long as they...View Topic - Replies (10)

I don't think that it is because of any kind of racism against Hispanics or anything.

The NBA drafts off of potential. If a guy is not getting a draft grade, why not stay in school? Sure, they can play in the D League for peanuts or in Europe (if lucky) or in Iraq like Marshall Henderson, but why not stay in school one more year and take another shot at improving so that you do get d...View Topic - Replies (20)
