re: Native American Man Owns Racist Anti-Illegal Immigration Protesters - SpqrTiger
[quote]Superior technology and lack of immunity were more responsible for the downfall of the Indian tribes than their passivity towards arriving Europeans. [/quote] I understand completely that plague wiped out up to 90% of them before they ever stood a chance. I have a very good understanding o...

re: Native American Man Owns Racist Anti-Illegal Immigration Protesters - SpqrTiger
That man is living proof of what becomes of your people when you are either unwilling or incapable of defending your land. He makes a far better case for why we should be defending the United States from culture-changing illegal immigration than not. History does not reward weakness, unprepare...

re: Vester Flanagan - Serial Affirmative Action hire? - SpqrTiger
[quote]It's no surprise they'll take whoever applies.[/quote] Almost correct. It is a shite profession with lots of entry level turnover. But they still won't take EVERYONE who applies. They will take a less talented minority hire over a more talented non-minority almost every time, though. The...

re: Anyone on here stay in McVoy Hall in the period from 1988 to 1990? - SpqrTiger
I was in McVoy from 90 to 93. It was an underrated dorm for sure. Great location. Rooms not so bad. The one they should never have closed, though, was Hatcher. If I could have lived all four years in Hatcher, I would have. Hell, I would still live there now if I could. I had a perfect corne...

re: Graduate School is Supposed to be Harder ? - SpqrTiger
Grad school SHOULD be easier. If you're in grad school, you should be working with a field in which you already have some expertise, and your coursework is not loaded down with irrelevant material that may take more time to understand. The amount of work you do on your area of proficiency shou...

re: OT History Board - Spanish Conquistadors - SpqrTiger
Not defending the Spaniards here at all... they were very arrogant, murderous invaders. But one of the great illusions of history is how the Aztecs are seen as the victims of the Spaniards in history. The Aztecs were just as oppressive, violent and sadistic to their subject tribes as the Spanish ...

[quote]I still don't get how no one him standing there pointing a pistol.... [/quote] A few posters have already explained this, but I was a former TV photographer/reporter. I can explain it to you. None of them even SAW him there. The photographer is totally dialed into his eyepiece, and l...

re: The Admiral - Roaring Currents - SpqrTiger
I saw it this weekend. If you're bored and looking for something to watch... this is your ticket. What a fun movie. Lots of action, violence, tension, violence, and violence. Quick pace... goes by quick, and you get to learn about a really cool dude from history that you likely never heard ...

re: Can you be friends with a girl/woman and not have sexual/romantic feelings? - SpqrTiger
I believe that a man can. I have done so in the past. BUT... a married man... or committed man... cannot, and should not. Some will disagree with me. That's okay. I am old. You can take the wisdom of life experience or leave it. ...

re: Marvin Hagler: Rocky Marciano's undefeated record is greater than Mayweather's - SpqrTiger
I agree with Hagler. Let's not pretend it's the same record. It's not. Different weight classes have different characteristics, and one of the characteristics of the heavyweight division is that it is much more likely that one punch can end it all, fast. While the lighter weight classes have powe...

re: Starting LSU Tips - SpqrTiger
This is the advice I have for you: Like many other posters, I say let the kid live on his own. When I was in school, my parents lived exactly where you live. But I lived near campus to learn how to be independent. If the shite hit the fan for any reason, at least my parents were in the same town. ...
