Facts and logic have no place in a political discussion like that, come on.

I have a 2012 GMC Acadia Denali and love it.
Traded a Tahoe on it and the only advantage it had over the Acadia was towing and ride height.
Acadia > Tahoe on mileage, usability, ride and price.

Depends on what you're ranking.
I think if A&M played Ohio State A&M would win, but that doesn't mean that based on their path to the BCSNC that Ohio State doesn't have a better chance at playing for a championship....

They own the media so as long as they control the narrative who cares what the intention was?
The media is willing to cover for Americans dying as a result of the actions of our state department because it would damage a democratic president and the presumptive democratic nominee in 2016. Think a...

If both sides are being honest, FDR and Lyndon Johnson set us down the path of dependency.
GWB and Obama have just gone above and beyond in their efforts to take us past the point of no return in terms of fiscal sustainability and dependency among our lower class voters.

People in the US love the idea of free trade and globalization until they realize that their job could ultimately be next one outsourced.
If you want to support globalization you need to understand that its one of the primary causes of our current 63% labor participation rate and budget deficits....

Ill believe JFF can't play when I see it in the fall.
He's probably (rightly) banging as much tail and partying as much as possible because he's good enough to not have to work as hard as everyone else. His stats don't come from understanding the defense better than everyone else, he makes plays ...

This whole discussion is pointless, Mike McNeil could've walked up to Indianapolis with tapes, sworn affidavits and a gift basket and the NCAA wouldn't do anything right now.

Izzo's teams play over their heads in the tournament just about every year and after watching Duke all year I think they're a little soft.

BS, it all comes down to whether or not the ACC loses the lawsuit against Maryland.
If they do the ACC will be gutted, if not, things probably stay the same for a little while.

The biggest takeaway from business school for me was the idea that incentives drive everything around us in ways that many people don't see.
