re: 'Take 'Em Down NOLA' wants more change - SpqrTiger
Exactly. If someone can explain to me the ethical difference between a slaver who fought for the Confederacy and a slaver who founded our country, then please, do. But I'm going to make the argument short and easy for you. If the commonality is slavery, then the only justification for taking...

[quote]You don't believe in redemption I guess? [/quote] Do you? Nothing P.G.T. Beauregard did in the cause of racial equality counts? His statue, as you say, is DOWN. These are the words of the man you hate so much... that his statue can no longer appear in public: [quote]"I am persuade...

re: Going through a break-up hurts - SpqrTiger
I'm sorry you're hurting. Two things: [quote]Especially when you truly love that person, they love you in return, you both actually want to be together, yet you simply can't get on the same page and come to terms with the fact that it simply won't work. It hurts knowing it won't work when you...

re: 'Take 'Em Down NOLA' wants more change - SpqrTiger
People miss the point so bad when it comes to this revisionist history nonsense. The self-righteous anti-monument crowd should be glad that there was a Confederacy, because it gives them a convenient scapegoat on which to hang the yoke of slavery guilt. The Confederacy lasted 4 years, yet for mor...

re: Charlie Daniels’ Open Letter to Chuck Schumer: You’ve Opened Pandora’s Box - SpqrTiger
Not disagreeing with Charlie, but to the folks at home, if you want to guarantee that a politician doesn't pay attention to what you have to say, this is how you start your letter: [quote]Sen. Schumer, I don't live in your constituency,[/quote] As soon as they read that, the letter goes into t...

re: Would a politician body slamming a reporter make you more or less likely to vote for them? - SpqrTiger
Less. A politician should be smart enough and resourceful enough to have someone else do his ass-kicking for him. Leaders should have, you know, basic leadership traits. If a politician has to perform criminal assaults with his own hands, then that's pretty much a disqualifier in my opinion. ...

re: Op-Ed from Seth Rich’s parents - SpqrTiger
I'm still new to this whole Seth Rich story, but I have to ask a couple of dumb questions. First, if their son's murder is still unsolved, why are they so ready to sweep under the rug any possibility regarding what happened? Why are they so sure that it wasn't a political hit? What I mean is...

re: Trump budget kills offshore oil revenue sharing for Louisiana - SpqrTiger

re: Trump budget kills offshore oil revenue sharing for Louisiana - SpqrTiger
[quote]It's not the Federal Government's job to bail out the shitty Louisiana economy that got that way due to horrible elected leaders.[/quote] This is true, BUT... this is not like other environmental money-sinks. When it comes to coastal restoration in Louisiana, it is in the best interest of ...

re: Anyone have a Twilight Zone type of Twilight Zone moment? - SpqrTiger
I've always had a problem with the Columbus Blue Jackets hockey team. I follow sports pretty good... I know where all the teams are, but I noticed around 2007 or so that there was a NHL hockey team in Columbus called the Blue Jackets. I thought, okay, it's a new team that started up this year. NO......

re: Worst behavior you've witnessed at a wedding/reception? - SpqrTiger

Rather, the order is determined by ...

re: Little league catcher lays out base runner - SpqrTiger
[quote]What would be the proper protocol for the catcher? [/quote] Without backup at the plate, the catcher shouldn't range too far outside his area. The plate and the ball are always his first responsibilities. I wouldn't tell my catcher to go that far up the line to tag unless the runner beg...

[quote]kid shoulda slid[/quote] He should not have run into an obvious tag. I'll never understand little league players who seem to do all they can to run into players with the ball, who are ten feet or more from them. Seen it happen dozens of times as a little league coach over the years....

re: Tigers name about to be torn down with the statues? - SpqrTiger
It's common knowledge among us that LSU gets its nickname from Louisiana's Civil War troops, but the vast majority of those who would actually oppose it... have no idea that's the case. How about we not give them ideas? Engster did us no favor here, but this is not going to be an issue unless ...
