Seems this perception is very similar to the way large numbers of people perceive Keynesian economics. Just take the half of the story that fits your agenda and run with it.

White is possibly ready to start. He has at least shown he can hit like a safety in run support. Really like what he showed last game. An early bloomer in addition to elite athleticism.
Robinson is rumored to have PP7 level athleticism, if such a thing is possible. He didn't do nearly as much...

The really sad part about all of this immigration BS is that many who do come here and follow all the rules are not able to stay even if they are model "citizens," both hardworking and highly educated. It's ridiculously hard to get citizenship for some of these highly educated professionals, yet ev...

| Political Talk|| re: Global Warming Drops Record Snowfall on Boston ! - JT on 2/9/13 at 4:28 pm|
I understand you fine. I don't want you to "get through to me" whatever that means.
I'm just wondering how many years of the earth not warming must pass before people will stop saying the earth is warming.
| Political Talk|| re: Global Warming Drops Record Snowfall on Boston ! - JT on 2/9/13 at 3:59 pm|
Pray tell, how long exactly does the earth need to be not warming before it is not warming?
If I bump this in 5 years, and the earth still hasn't warmed, will it still be warming?
| Political Talk|| re: Global Warming Drops Record Snowfall on Boston ! - JT on 2/9/13 at 3:33 pm|
I'm not sure where you are getting your info, but even East Anglia University admits there has been no warming since 1997.

The best way to move past racism is to stop focusing on race.
Acknowledge one (western) set of rules for all members of society. No quotas, equal opportunity for all. Vote political race panderers out of office.
Do not attempt to redress things done by people who are long dead. It is divisi...

Racism in the traditional sense of active suppression of certain races is not a real problem today.
Cultural differences will always affect personal preferences of who a person wants to be around.
