Rubio Faring Best Against Clinton - RedStickBR
This hasn't received much attention on this board. In fact, his name is hardly mentioned relative to Clinton, Trump, Bush and Sanders. But if you're one of those who watches the RCP averages, he now lags Clinton by the narrowest margin of any other Republican candidate - just 2 points. As an asid...

re: Liberal Tries to Corner Ted Cruz with Climate Chnage Question - RedStickBR
I disagree. As Mark Twain said, "Never argue with stupid people. They will drag you down to their level and then beat you with experience." Cruz is simply revealing that this person is arguing from a position of blind liberal orthodoxy as opposed to logic and reason. As such, all the facts in the...

re: I am as anti illegal as anyone on this board but that photo from Turkey - RedStickBR
It's America's/Europe's job to be the shining city on the hill for other countries to see and attempt to model themselves after. Ultimately, however, it is up to the citizens themselves to rise up and determine their own fate. If anyone knows that, it's we Americans, who were founded on it. If someo...

re: Why can't we be more like Sweden? Well, Sweden is becoming more like us. - RedStickBR
A better response may be, "Europe is brain dead." The body is certainly still functional, but the comatose action by European political actors towards immigrants may soon be the proverbial hand that pulls the plug. Which will win - PC and idealism or Europe and realism?...

re: At what point do we conclude trickle down is just a fantasy? - RedStickBR
The rich don't hire because they personally are richer. They hire because their businesses are doing better. The wealth disparity in this country is primarily due to the rich holding a higher percentage of their wealth in equity securities, which have increased substantially in recent years. It'...

re: What will the Obama legacy be? - RedStickBR
There's a lot of commentary in the study - some positive, some negative. If that one cherry-picked sentence fragment is what you need to cling to to confirm your beliefs, so be it. But I'll leave it up to you to determine if that's really your honest takeaway from the study....

re: What will the Obama legacy be? - RedStickBR
I'd wager the average hard-working black man trying to build a better life for himself and his family would be much better served by some of the black leaders in the Republican Party than anything Obama could ever even sniff out. The fact is, elitist blacks like Obama who have virtually nothing i...

re: What will the Obama legacy be? - RedStickBR
I'm sure you're right about that. But for those in their 20s/early 30s (likely a large contingent on this college sports forum of ours) this is about the worst things have ever been in terms of race relations. And let me be clear - there's no doubt some of that is due to factors such as wrongful sho...

And he literally did what you describe from day one when he made his victory lap and smeared shite in his opponents' faces. The guy is not a leader. That's basically an objective truth at this point using any modern definition of leadership....

Fair list and assessments. It's obvious he'd call healthcare reform his biggest achievement. Whether that turns out to be a good thing or not will take some time to answer in a conclusive way. We'll just have to wait and see. Killing Bin Laden happened under his watch, so he'll get credit for ...

[quote]Seeing things through a "black" or "white" perspective IS a human perspective.[/quote] No, it really isn't. But thanks for basically admitting Obama never stood a chance as a "post-racial" president. And I'd venture to bet that's because there are a higher percentage of blacks who don't...

Dude, New Orleans in the aftermath of Katrina is a story of unity and perseverence. Not to mention the fact that racial matters are of far less importance than the long list of other things to talk about when you're commemorating a regional natural disaster. And yet the guy shits all over New Orlean...
