| More Sports Board|| Why Hate Johnny Football? - ShortyRob on 7/16/14 at 12:20 pm|
I admit it. I couldn't stand the SOB. But, that shite was irrational. I have no logical reason for disliking him other than it was sort of the thing to do.
The guy is young, rich, having a blast and pulling OT 9+s regularly.
Let's be honest. Most people hate him at this point due to jealousy....
| Soccer Board|| Why I assume American soccer will improve - ShortyRob on 7/2/14 at 1:14 pm|
and eventually be a world power. Now, full discolure. I wouldn't really call myself a soccer guy. But, I am old enough to remember a few things.
The reality is that while a lot of kids play soccer now, this is a relatively new phenomenon. By "relatively new", I mean that the reality is that it re...
| Political Talk|| Global Warming. SIMPLE question - ShortyRob on 6/19/14 at 4:34 pm|
Not even going to argue if it is happening. For the sake of argument, I'm going to accept 100% of the assertions regarding it happening.
List for me the positive effects of global warming going with the stated assumption. If you say "none", get the frick out of the thread with your stupidit...
| Political Talk|| The overuse of the term Hypocrite - ShortyRob on 6/18/14 at 6:03 am|
Watching the Glen Beck thread, it really just has to be said that in politics, and, in social life in general, the American use of the term hypocrite has become complete bull shite and, it is a close relative of the term "flip flop". Both terms have real meaning, but not in today's debate. Now, they'...
| Political Talk|| I like the IP discussion. It stimulates decent debate on this board....... - ShortyRob on 6/13/14 at 7:02 am|
The problem I have with being 100% against IP is, I can't imagine how that would not reduce innovation on many fronts. Sure, it might encourage innovation on some fronts. I can't deny that. But, there is simply no denying that there are many innovations that have come largely from people motivated b...
| Political Talk|| Eventually, we'll all recognize this IS a religious war - ShortyRob on 6/13/14 at 6:37 am|
It occurs to me that one reason why people don't recognize it as a religious war is that we lump Islam together. Now, I think overall, Islam is one fricked up religion. BUT, out real problem children are the ones who support Sharia law.
Baptists are a subset of Christians. If pretty much all Bapt...
| Political Talk|| Why studies on Education Systems amuse me - ShortyRob on 6/4/14 at 12:10 am|
I'm often amused at how Americans can willfully ignore the obvious but come to believe fantasies that their daily lives easily refute if they'd just admit it to themselves. Education is a biggie. You often see comparisons that rate X state tops and Y state bottom and of course, people love to latch ...
| Political Talk|| Circle Jerk...........I'm open to suggestions - ShortyRob on 6/3/14 at 2:04 pm|
Mmmkay. Many point out, somewhat correctly that this board is pretty much dominated by conservatives.(although I'd assert, it's not all that Republican these days).
But, neither here nor there. The sad fact is, finding a board that isn't pretty much all left or all right on the net these days is ...
| Political Talk|| The ARC of certain liberal presence on this board (Bergdahl) - ShortyRob on 6/3/14 at 12:09 pm|
In my time on this board, one thing has become readily apparent. There is a definitive "arc" to how liberals deal with shite like this Bergdahl story on this board. IE, any story that tends to make their dear leader or side look bad.
Step 1 - Become COMPLETE fricking ghosts. Someone like Decatur/Re...

| Political Talk|| The Wrong Enemy - ShortyRob on 4/14/14 at 1:31 pm|
Found this an interesting if unsurprising story regarding our fighting in Afghanistan and the fact that Pakistan was never really on our side.
Sure. This seems obvious but it clearly wasn't acted upon for a great deal of time(and really still isn't).

Things are still rough for me but having someone who REALLY knows what better or worse means is invaluable. I'...

| Political Talk|| Read my lips......no new taxes - ShortyRob on 10/31/13 at 10:39 am|
Clearly, Bush 1 was an idiot. He should've had Obama as a staffer. Then, when his opponents hung that promise around his neck, he could've just said he really meant "no new taxes as long as the tax system worked" or something like that.
And shit, at least we don't have tons of evidence that Bush ...
