My Main Trump Concerns - Putin and Trade - NWHoustonTiger
I am 100% in agreement with the National Review guys in their [i]Against Trump[/i] series published today. I think he's bad for the Republican Party and even worse for traditional American Conservatism. That said, if given the unfortunate choice, I would vote for him over Hillary and any 3rd party...

David French: GOP Underestimated Trump b/c it Overestimated Base Conservatism - NWHoustonTiger
David French at NRO has some really excellent observations about the rise of Trump. French's point is that, while "middle America" (what could be broadly considered the GOP base) does align more with The Right then The Left, they aren't NeoCons on foreign policy, staunch evangelicals on social issue...

Next Mizzou Football Coach - NWHoustonTiger
Who do you think would be a good fit there? Al Sharpton? Cornell West? Rev Jeremiah Wright? Rachel Maddow? Or should they just promote that gay kid who is the Student Body President - he seems to run the campus anyways. ...

Ralph Peters - "start by leveling Raqqa" - NWHoustonTiger
How we defeat the jihadis is just as important as why we defeat them. Completely laying waste to Raqqa in a Dresden-like bombing campaign would send the perfect message to the radical islamists - mess with Western Civilization and we will raze your cities. You will not die a blessed martyr with 72...

TV for Home Office - NWHoustonTiger
Any good recommendations for a 40-45 inch TV for a home office/study? Also, if the TV won't be used that frequently, would it make more sense to just get an Apple TV and HD Antenna than incur the additional charge and hassle of adding another U-Verse receiver? ...

When has Trump ever taken a stand on a key issue when it mattered? - NWHoustonTiger
Did Trump ever speak out against driver's licenses for illegals in New York State? Did he ever try to lead a campaign to pressure Coumo into allowing fracking in Western NY (which would be a boon to the long-suffering working-class communities that he claims to care about)? How about protesting an...

2016 NFL Draft should have a solid QB Class - NWHoustonTiger
You never really know what the NFL thinks of these guys until draft time, but Jared Goff, Connor Cook, Cody Kessler and Christian Hackenberg all seem to be 1st round talents. None of them are Andrew Luck-caliber players, but they are better than the QB pool of the last 3 drafts. With teams like Chi...

How the Malaysia Airlines Flight 17 Situation Plays Out - NWHoustonTiger
President Obama will continue to insist on a "full investigation" and push back on any criticism by stating "we can't act until we have all the facts." The investigation (whatever shape it takes) will get drawn out because access to the evidence (that hasn't already been destroyed) will be withheld...

Military News: Army makes Carl Gustav Recoiless Rifle "Standard Issue" - NWHoustonTiger
I recall Chris Kyle expressing his fondness for the Carl Gustav in [i]American Sniper[/i]. Sounds like it is a very effective weapon and I'm glad more servicemen will be able to have it at their disposal. [link=(http://www.foxnews.com/us/2014/03/11/big-guns-army-soldiers-to-get-powerful-new-swed...
