re: So now that Russia is crumbling from within - maine82
This is mostly of Putin's doing. They have huge systemic problems: 1) Population decline 2) Eastern Russia identifying more with China 3) Radical Muslims in Caucasus 4) Corruption 5) Stagnant economy The modest sanctions imposed on Putin probably helped, but that doesn't mean Obama couldn...

re: Pope Francis: animals will be in heaven - maine82
Well theoretically, even though animals don't have souls, God could snap his fingers and reincarnate our pets if that makes us happy in Heaven. And Heaven is supposed to be a joyous place. Ipso facto, your pets go to Heaven....

re: Percentage chance CLM is offered and accepts Michigan job - maine82
90% chance he's offered, 25% chance he accepts. The only reason I think it's that likely he accepts is because he knows this is his last chance to coach Michigan. Even if the next Michigan coach sucks, Miles by that time will be eligible for Social Security. I just don't see Michigan coming bac...

re: Republicans clash on reversing nuclear option in Senate - maine82
[quote]This is the consequences of Reid changing the rules. If the Republicans win in 2016 they can flood the courts with their judges. It's like watching a firing squad line up in a circle.[/quote] I agree that we should leave it alone, even when the Democrats go back into power. Historically, ...

re: Per Rappaport, no Harbaugh to Mich - maine82
Schiano isn't that bad. Some college coaches can't hack it in the NFL. Spurrier's NFL win record is only one game better than Schiano. And there was a reason the Bucs hired Schiano in the first place - he was very successful building up Rutgers. That wouldn't be a terrible hire for Michigan....

re: New Orleans Airport--why Landrieu thinks his sister is great - maine82
I don't like the Landrieus and I don't want a monument, but if the Louisiana economy gets more successful, the airport would naturally need to expand, unless we want international travelers going to Memphis or Houston. But it should be done in a measured way, not just to have a pork project....

re: More Reasons to hate the feminist movement and women in general... - maine82
There have been other articles like this. If men truly "withdrew" from society, then long-term, economies will just grind to a halt. For a lot of reasons, women aren't going to be able to offset the lack of male productivity. This is why I think Christianity will make a comeback in the We...

re: UAB football players address university president - maine82
I have mixed feelings about this. I definitely empathize with the players and it sucks for them. I also think it's pretty crappy how the UA Board of Trustees treated UAB. But most of these athletic departments are in the red and subsidized by taxpayers. If UAB was topping out at 20,000 a...
