re: If we had to eliminate one of the big 3 sports, which one and why? - jmitc22 on 5/24/17 at 12:35 pm
Basketball. Three reasons: 1) nobody tailgates for basketball 2) a larger number of college athletes get to participate in baseball programs than basketball programs, so it gives more student athletes opportunities to play and earn scholarships 3) baseball is more competitive. ...

re: Am I the only conservative who doesn't mind that Confederate statues are being removed? - jmitc22 on 5/17/17 at 4:57 pm
An interesting question for debate: for those who support OR oppose the removal of the statues, would you support or oppose the destruction of the great pyramids of Egypt? Certainly there cannot be a more decadent celebration of men (the Pharahos) who abused the institution of slavery and who were v...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)

[quote]What I think would be fair is if we were allowed to use the payments as a pre-tax option. I know we can already write off interest but if you can give a nice tax shelter to those who are doing the right thing maybe you can get more folks on board with doing what they are suppose to do.

I don't know what's been said since then, but SlowFlo hit on most of the issue on page 1. It's a simple cause and effect relationship. If you recall, there were changes in the student Loan repayment rules, starting with Bush Jr., and then additional changes under Obama. The effect was to grant addit...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)

Les Miles gave LSU personality and character that was interesting to a national audience. All the espn ...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)

Unless there is more in the actual article, I don't see any misinformation. The President made remarks about it being time for an immigration bill. He then chose not to discuss this controversial topic in his highly publicized speech. He never said "this will be in my speech." CNN looks like the one...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)

It makes me more mad when people jump in line behind an ambulance and prevent you from getting back over.
