re: How do you define "middle class," and what policies will help this demo grow? - MetArl15
[quote]Both parties say they want a strong, robust "middle class,"[/quote]I believe it's just a modern terminology for the everyman. I don't believe politicians want to grow this class necessarily (though some likely want to move poverty-stricken individuals into this class), but they believe by pr...

re: White Ex-DC Official sues city: claims racial firing and racial slurs used - MetArl15
While the racist remarks from his co-workers are abhorrent, I am guessing his dismissal was more based on bringing corruption and mismanagement to light than it was racism. Howland was a leader mired in controversy and I believe he wanted to stave off the inevitable as long as possible. He resig...

re: Should LF7 Play Both Ways? - MetArl15
[quote]If LF7 playing defense isn't the best guarantee for securing the Heisman, I must ask the genuises of the rant, what is the best solution?[/quote]Develop a semblance of a passing game so that linebackers and safeties can't crowd the box and limit running room for Fournette. The more balanced ...

re: What will it take for the West to take the threat of Islam seriously? - MetArl15
[quote]But support is way too high in many locations[/quote]Agreed. It's hugely problematic and does make skillful dealings with the Islamic world that much more complicated. I don't have a solution here, and the word choice issue I've discussed certainly isn't a panacea. I do, however, think it'...

[quote]So you would disagree with domestic identification of "returning veterans", "gun rights advocates", and "patriot organizations" as sources of domestic threats?

re: 2015 Tour de France Thread - MetArl15
Started watching the TdF in the late 80s. My favorite rider will always be Greg LeMonde, but I had a lot of love for Pedro Delgado and Sean Kelly. For whatever reason, I could never stand Ulrich in the 90s. I always thought Laurent Fignon was an insufferable douche as well....

[quote]100% of legally aborted fetuses would say "Don't abort me!" if they could speak. [/quote]You sure about that? We're dealing in unprovable hypotheticals, so it's just as likely those fetuses aborted because they were facing a lifetime of pain or mental incapacity would choose to pass on a fut...

re: Want to take a trip to Italy - Thoughts on length of stay, cost, and places? - MetArl15
Rome and Florence are musts. Lucca and Parma are great smaller cities that are high on my list as well. Siena is also great. The Amalfi Coast is as unbelievably beautiful as they say. I personally would skip Venice as I find it overrated. Make sure to travel to Sicily. Completely different t...

re: Top 5 WR's in LSU history - MetArl15
Josh Reed was the most productive and has to be top 5. Wendell Davis also must be on the list. The remaining 3 should come from the following group IMO: Odell Beckham Jarvis Landry Dwayne Bowe Eric Martin Todd Kinchen Tony Moss Craig Davis Brandon LaFell Michael Clayton...
