He was simply wrong about the salaries. The bureau of labor puts the average salary at 40K for welders, which is consistent with the article. It's a nice debate line, but simply not true. The AP did say where they got the numbers, which is more than what Rubio offered. You can still make an argu...

From the AP fact check of the debate ([link=(http://hosted.ap.org/dynamic/stories/U/US_GOP_2016_DEBATE_FACT_CHECK?SITE=AP&SECTION=HOME&TEMPLATE=DEFAULT)]LINK[/link]): RUBIO: "Welders make more money than philosophers." Not so, on average. Rubio is arguing that the U.S. has failed to invest...

The "he's not any good because he was in a band I didn't like over a decade ago argument" is bizarre. It's fine if you don't personally like the music, but it's hard to deny that the guy is a talented musician. The output (from Alter bridge to his solo work) over the last four to five years has bee...

I'd go with Bell. He's had two really nice weeks in a row and did well against Minnesota the first time around. Buffalo gave up three td's to Anderson last week, but they've been pretty tough against the run overall while Minnesota has struggled. ...

They were excellent. They have better chemistry than most on stage, and you can tell they really enjoy playing. Tremonti stole the show, but that wasn't a surprise. The set was about an hour and forty five minutes. For me, they've always been in my second tier of bands. I have enjoyed all four ...

I went on a Tuesday night and it was fairly crowded, which was nice to see. Their whiskey selection is second to none in BR, and I really enjoyed the atmosphere. Hopefully it will do well because there's really nothing comparable in the area. They do need to work on getting a sign and spreading the ...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (2)

And the Eagles are 4-4 at home with no wins against playoff teams. They also have the weakest strength of schedule (tied with GB) in the NFC while the Saints have the strongest. There's no reason to see this as some improbable situation for the Saints. This is essentially a toss up game....Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)
