[quote]Back to the topic... actual topic. This is an open threat to the US. Do we handle it now in hopes of there never being a later, or wait to see if they are going to hit us? [/quote] Are you suggesting we take preemptive action on every public threat to us? ...

re: Marriage equal: Should elected reps vote how they feel or based on constituents? - Mickey Goldmill

[quote]Eliminating most of the $40 gameday on campus parking would be a start. They can't be making that much money with that. A lot of 75% empty lots on campus last year while most fans parked on the outskirts of campus. Except when there was a chance of rain and all the free lots closed, then it j...
