| More Sports Board|| Why are the Astros so awful? - Sparty1 on 5/14/13 at 9:13 pm|
I'm sitting here watching them play the Tigers, and they look like one of the worst baseball teams I've ever seen. There's a lot of resemblance to the 2003 Tigers, and they were absolutely brutal.
I haven't paid attention to what's been happening with them, but what happened to Houston? Why have...

| Political Talk|| re: Keynes was gay - Sparty1 on 5/5/13 at 8:34 pm|
No, there's no link between the two things. Tom G. Palmer, a fellow at Cato and an all around brilliant guy (who also edited a book called "The Morality of Capitalism) is gay. Plenty of libertarians are gay, and they're incredibly pro-market.
Whether Krugman is gay or not, I don't know. Nor do I ...

He's a vast improvement over Jennifer Granholm. The state is doing much better economically since he took over. All of the hate is coming from the Union crowd who would never vote for him anyway.
I don't see him as a candidate for national office though. It just doesn't seem like his style....

No. We want government to have nothing to do with defining something that isn't within their power to define. If they must feel the need to involve themselves in marriage, then everyo...
| Political Talk|| re: Who is responsible for inventing the phrase "Marriage Equality"? - Sparty1 on 3/28/13 at 8:58 pm|
This whole issue would be mostly solved by eliminating the income tax, or at the very least, ending the bull shite benefits that X group gets vs Y group.
As far as Marriage Equality goes as a term, I don't think it's inaccurate, and I'm not someone who necessarily "approves" of the gay lifestyle. I...

I don't like pit bulls much personally, but Breed Specific Legislation is incredibly stupid. It's not the dogs' fault that a big percentage of the people that want them are trashy/thuggish. Good dog owners will produce good dogs, poor and lazy training will produce bad dogs. Dogs are more like havin...

In person: MSU's Hail Mary W over Wisconsin in 2011. That was an incredible night, and the roller coaster of emotion at the end was insane. Joy when Nichol made the catch, anger when the ball was spotted short, then back to delirious joy when the call was reversed. Absolutely fantastic to stick it t...
