re: The cult of ignorance in the United States: Anti-intellectualism - dinosaur on 4/21/17 at 8:20 am
I agree that the idea of removing competition from some things tends to cause an expectation of reward for little effort. But I think that the problem discussed in the article is more of a result of a toxic soup of children who are not just not interested in learning, but deride those who are, of a...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)
re: Gerrymandering, For or Against? - dinosaur on 4/11/17 at 7:58 am
This is one of the main reasons the nation is so polarized. The districts are designed to elect a person from party "X" and the fact that you don't have to get approval from the other side of the political fence to get elected makes representatives less and less likely to try to find a compromise....Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)

re: Did the Obama Administration Try Stacking the Deck Against Trump at the Justice - dinosaur on 3/4/17 at 2:22 pm
Old guys like me recall that the Watergate mess started out something like this. But I think this one will be worse. What sort of warrant was obtained? If a normal warrant, what was the probable cause? If a FISA warrant, why base in on banking rules? That was intended for anti-terrorism, I thoug...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)
re: Did a Big Law Attorney Act Unethically to Sabotage Trump's Travel 'Ban'? - dinosaur on 3/4/17 at 2:07 pm
While this thread has diverted into more of an argument of whether Trump is worse than Obama, I understand the ramifications of the conflict rules and am shocked that that firm filed that brief. In normal circumstances and normal cases it would be close to professional suicide, nearly insuring some ...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)

re: Thinking of getting a Hyundai Genesis - dinosaur on 2/6/17 at 11:59 am
My wife had one. Great car for about 35000 miles, then began to have issues. Real problem I had was that it would stall out on the highway and I would bring it back to All Star under the warranty. While the dealership tried, and I honestly think they made a good effort, Hyundai would refuse to ...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)

I thought he was to divest himself of Exxon stock.

The first response of the left seems to always be that your guy did this, too. Well wrong is wrong and dumb is dumb, regardless of who did it before. As if the President's picked man is going to tell him no on something like this. And if someone else did it before, it just shows more how we nee...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)

This might be something that congress could do, in a somewhat targeted and limited way. But the comments and discussion here makes me wonder what happened to this board. Trump can't just cut off federal funds to California and California can't just decide to not pay taxes. (California as a state ...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)
re: This is a stat that should make every LSU fan uneasy - dinosaur on 11/30/16 at 5:11 pm
Ole Miss beat Alabama a couple of times because they had a very good passing game. LSU's strength over the last few years has been a power run game, which Alabama crushes. Until LSU develops a good passing game, with a very good quarterback, a line that can pass block well and very good receivers,...

And there is the elephant in the room. Some things must not be discussed, mentioned or argued. The reason for the problems in the black community are, according to the liberal dogma, caused by white racists and the residue of slavery. Even a suggestion that the people involved have some responsib...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)

I think that you would find that working/productive black people aren't having any more children than working whites. The problem is that we basically give financial incentives to the non-working class, to have more children. They get money for each child, they don't have to worry about child car...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)
