re: And I'm back in the Republican camp. - N.O. via West-Cal
mule74: Thanks for posting this sort of reminder. People get frustrated with so-called RINO's, and so forth, and in doing so, they forget how important it is to avoid Democratic rule if you believe in free markets and limited government. With the possible exception of Trump (I say this only becau...

re: Romney-- - N.O. via West-Cal
I am by no means clamoring for it, but I believe he would have made a better president than candidate. Voted for him last time and would do so again. In the event of a deadlock at the convention, I would take Romney, likely paired with Rubio or Kasich (to maximize the chance of winning either FL or ...

re: We should have fouled... - N.O. via West-Cal
"You don't foul there, you play D. It just did not work out for the Tigers this time. Live with it." This is probably the conventional wisdom, but I favor neither it nor fouling. Instead, I have long advocated a middle course: have your guards force the offense to initiate more quickly but runnin...

re: I'm opening a can of whoop-ass on Black Lives Matter in this thread.. with stats - N.O. via West-Cal
"I think that is where the perception gap and breakdown occurs." Agreed. Part of this is just what makes splashy news and what doesn't. BLMers marching against an allegedly racist police force? National news. Racially integrated crowd at a "Take Back Our Streets" rally in response to (mostly) bla...

"LOL, The immigration problem isn't Americans driving them out, its their own people, and different Religious groups. Pulling out might have destabilized Iraq, but Syria?

"Yes, the whole "blacks getting killed by police" thing is overblown, but so is the "blacks don't care about black on black crime" thing muttered on this board all the time. Again, just bc you don't see it on TV doesn't mean it doesn't happen." Spot on, 100%. It is plenty popular on this board to...

re: Reaction From A&M Fans at Reed Arena - N.O. via West-Cal
I would love to see Simmons' shots charted and I hope someone is showing him. He appears incredibly reluctant to take 12-15 footer jumpers, which teams area all but giving him, and this makes him much easier to guard than he should be. And here is what I think the crazy part is: I strongly suspect t...

re: Subsidizing NFL teams bites St. Louis--a lesson for the Saints subsidy fans - N.O. via West-Cal
I rather doubt that anyone who has looked at this in detail is a "fan" of such subsidies, unless Benson is on this board. But the question is really whether and how much you're willing to pay to have an NFL team in your city. Reasonable minds can differ, but that's the choice....

I will go with Hitler because your dad's political leanings suggest he is more likely to point to a fascist than a communist in setting the bar for tyranny. Not sure about the 78 mil, though, even with Stalin or Mao....

re: 1994 memo from Powel to Stephanopoulos to Clinton, very interesting read - N.O. via West-Cal
Fascinating stuff! I don't remember Powel; should I? Anyway, a very interesting take and really interesting to see the timing of the memo: January of 1994. That was the year the Democrats got creamed in the congressional mid-terms....

re: Team was coached well last night. Very smart with ball down the stretch. - N.O. via West-Cal
"Was a little surprised that we had Blakeney in over Hornsby the last 6 minutes or so, but besides that it is hard to fault a thing he did last night." This surprised me, too, but I think JJ either saw that things were going well, generally, and decided not to upset the flow, or it had to do with...

re: Marco Rubio: Stop Eminent Domain Abuse aka Donald Trump Stealing Your Property - N.O. via West-Cal
Rubio presents a mixed bag for me, but this is one issue where he's right and Trump is dead wrong. Kelo was a terrible decision and this is an example of where Trump's politics veer toward fascism (in the literal sense; I'm not calling him a brownshirt)....

re: Perhaps a Legitimate Argument for the Removal Of THESE Monuments - N.O. via West-Cal
A referendum would have felt more democratic and as you say, would have made for great theater if nothing else. It will also be interesting to see what happens with litigation. I believe - have not looked this up - that the law only allows for monuments to be removed if a public nuisance. So, does t...

re: Perhaps a Legitimate Argument for the Removal Of THESE Monuments - N.O. via West-Cal
VOR, I agree with much of what you have to say, but I don't know why you would say this: "And whether reason prevails and there aren't efforts in the future to erase all remnants of the past, no matter how benign. I'm actually hopeful about that." Mitch and the folks on his side of this iss...
