Ole Miss and State's Staying Power - PurpleandGold Motown
I don't think anyone questions the talent and skill of Ole Miss and State's starting 22. They've more than proven themselves over the past weeks, but neither team has recruited lights out in the past few years. Most teams that win it all tend to be deep at almost every position. Do they have the ...

The Business of Fitness - PurpleandGold Motown

Does Roddy White Plan on Playing this Year? - PurpleandGold Motown
The man has been hurt the whole year. What did he play? Two games as a decoy before heading to the sidelines? It seems like he's just given up on the season and plans on riding it out until it's over. Damn. At least Julio had surgery before calling it quits. Roddy never even got started....

Cable Tech/Company Rant - PurpleandGold Motown
Is there a greater collection of drug addict, mentally challenged frickups than the cable company -- any cable company? My cable has been fricked for going on six months. Not totally fricked.

The Gentleman's Agreement has to Go! - PurpleandGold Motown
There is a gentleman's agreement within the two-party system. Basically, it's an unspoken -- or perhaps spoken -- agreement to never bring up things where both parties are at fault. The ending of this agreement is one of the primary benefits of adding a viable third or even fourth party into the mix...

How Would Americans Respond to a One-Term President? - PurpleandGold Motown
I said in another thread America needs Cincinattus not Caesar as our next President. In case you are unfamiliar with Cincinattus, he was a roman senator. After the execution of his, he left public life to tend his farm. During a time of crisis, the senate appointed him dictator with absolute p...

Liberal Leaning FB Friends Are Remarkably Quiet - PurpleandGold Motown
Most of the time they are chirping up a storm, and they were certianly vocal right after the shutdown. But that's changed in the last two days or so. They are really quiet right now. Normally me posting anything about healthcare, smaller government, how the president is being disingenuous w...

Personal Opinion or Conviction Versus Policy - PurpleandGold Motown
Why do our politicians and the electorate insist on leaders turning their personal opinions and convictions into policy? Why does no one say, "Even though I feel this way, I cannot make it policy. I don't have the authority?" And why can't the American public accept that? :dunno:...

I'm a Libertarian Because I'm Not Sure - PurpleandGold Motown
Whenever I talk to democrats or republicans I am amazed at how sure they are -- how sure they are about what is right and what is wrong. They know what is best for a large portion of the population. They know about what to do for the poor and uneducated. They know how to fix health care. T...

Anyone Still Write and Mail Letters? - PurpleandGold Motown
I do. On stationery or notebook paper. With a pen. Currently, I have about six people I correspond with on a regular basis -- old friends that have moved away, not gotten locked up. I guess I started when I was in my early twenties (early 2000s) because I noticed that every writer I admired h...
