[quote]That said, I can do nothing more than roll my eyes at the platform these minuscule niches of society are given in such a growing media sector. You would think homosexuals were nearly half of the American populace with the skewed coverage they receive. Next you will be lead to believe more tha...

They'll find religion and start pushing everything backwards.
I suspect these things go in cycles. At some point we're going to hit a wall because of evolutionary ...

[quote]We've had girls play golf, wrestle, play football, and possibly play baseball at my school. And it's a small school. Why can't a boy play volleyball, which is also a man's sport?[/quote]
Because the boy would dominate. We know that.

I'm just curious as to whether a large % of the Poli-Board opposes Israel/Israel's policies or whether it's just a few people who make a lot of noise.
For anyone who wants to participate, answer these three questions in the thread and I'll tally up results this evening.

Supposedly he was able to beat Michael Kidd-Gilchrist one-on-one not long ago, who is a defensive specialist. And the next day he was bowled over in pain from having beaten him.
I'm sure Jordan could do it once, but he certainly couldn't average 20 for a season....
| Political Talk|| re: Obama or Netanyahu? - maine82 on 3/2/15 at 2:24 pm|
I'm not sure who has more credibility but I prefer Netanyahu.
Obama and most of the international community are completely irrational on Iran and the peace process. On Iran, they agreed to an interim deal that moves the goalposts away from Iran not having a nuclear capacity to instead allowing...

By the way, another tidbit about Reagan from those books was he went around the country backing conservatives in Republican primaries, similar to what Sarah Palin did in 2010.
Fun fact: Reagan went to Texas in 1978 to back the conservative opponent of one George W. Bush in a primary race for th...

In my mind, there's only one of two reasons one would go out of their way to write an article to make this comparison:
2) An attempt to distract from the issue at-hand
When these comparisons are made, it enables people like Tavis Smiley to go on the Bill Maher show and say, "well...
