re: John Stossel ranks the presidential candidates - N.O. via West-Cal
"is interesting that he prefers Bernie Sanders over both Clinton and Biden." I could not read the article, but my guess is that a libertarian like Stossel would find at least some common ground with Sanders as a civil libertarian (understanding of search & seizeure and some things of that nature)...

re: Washington Post article on double standard in media coverage of Roanoke shooting - N.O. via West-Cal
Please don't take this in the wrong way, but consider changing "evilness" to "evil." Your post is so good and thoughtful; it's worth a litte clean-up. :cheers:...

re: Three-Part Question For Conventional (Moderate) Pro-Establishment GOP Types - N.O. via West-Cal
"The media, and they're a huge part of the equation." No doubt. So try to get some attention for what you're doing. Plus, the impact can be overrated when you get to the retail politics of Iowa and New Hamphsire. Also, the media can pivot quickly. So far, they've been "hard" on him in a way t...

re: Three-Part Question For Conventional (Moderate) Pro-Establishment GOP Types - N.O. via West-Cal
"I'm going to poke fun from time to time but I'm done attacking him. It doesn't work." I like this thinking for GOP candidates, too. I think some columnists are hyper-ventilating over the need for the GOP to distance itself from Trump "right now." I would relax with respect to Trump. Sure, he's ...

re: Peat does not look like a 1st round pick - N.O. via West-Cal
"He was abused on ONE play, by Jabaal Sheard." This simply isn't true. I focused on him on a number of plays and he looked bad on a number of occasions. And I was at the game with my 8 year-old, i.e., this wasn't based on camera angles or whatever announcers were saying. I assume you're referen...

re: RNC weighing the possibility of blocking Trump from debates. - N.O. via West-Cal
"That's the quickest way to force him into a third party candidacy." This is good reason not to make this decision now. But going forward, any political party should have such a rule....

re: RNC weighing the possibility of blocking Trump from debates. - N.O. via West-Cal
"The RNC needs -to pledge- not to place Jeb! and let the primary be the people choosing the nominee and not them!" Are you joking? Unless there is a brokered convention, which hasn't happened in a long time, the GOP primary voters select the candidate....

re: RNC weighing the possibility of blocking Trump from debates. - N.O. via West-Cal
"They scared." that's just being sensible. Do you realize that an organization, the Republican Party, is providing a platform for a candidate who is openly considering running as a third party, thereby dooming the organization's chance of prevailing in the election? Any party should require that...

re: Peat does not look like a 1st round pick - N.O. via West-Cal
He was abused on passing plays. Hard to imagine he could look that bad, even against 2nd and third teamers. On the plus side, he showed a nice ability to get into the second level of the defense and make blocks in the run and screen game. I hope he comes around A LOT in pass protect but if not, may...

re: T-Bob is talking about 1/9/12 conspiracies on WWL right now - N.O. via West-Cal
"Well, I tend to think that a lot of LSU fans DO NOT want to believe our game plan could have been that bad...and thus something awful was going on in the locker room." I think you've nailed it. The simple truth is too hard for many Tiger fans to accept. The staff failed to prepare the team to pl...

re: Negative vs. Positive vs. Realistic - N.O. via West-Cal
"How is picking 8-4 negative?????" We really only play 8 games, 9 if you count Syracuse. So, what you're saying is that 4-4 in the SEC is not a negative outcome for this team. I disagree because I think this team is too talented just to go .500, even in the rugged SEC....

re: The 14th Amendment seems unambiguous about "Anchor Babies." - N.O. via West-Cal
"And subject to the jurisdiction thereof" I am no constitutional scholar, but I bet that is to allow for things like babies born to foreign officials who are here on diplomatic business to be excluded. It may also have been intended to except Indians. Indians were obviously born in America but t...

re: Raising issue of birthright citizenship is a major mistake - N.O. via West-Cal
Although not at all a "hawk" on immigration, generally, I do believe that birthright citizenship creates perverse incentives problem and I also wonder how well-grounded it is in the Constitution (I realize that it's been interpreted that way but an Amendment could overrule the jurisprudence). To me...

re: Blacks and Whites are killed by police at the same rate - N.O. via West-Cal
Do the numbers killed for "whites" include "white Hispanics"? If they do, have you reduced that number by .20 as you did with the number of crimes committed by whites? If not, you may have overstated the number of whites shot and killed by police. Also, I would be interested to see if non-Hisp...
