I don't care for Trump but that's one of the best reasons to vote for Trump that I've seen. ...

re: Took a half day, went to a bar w/ my fiance, struck up a convo with an illegal - N.O. via West-Cal
I'm all for making some allowance for legality but not for citizenship. I understand the human impulse but there has to be some price to be paid for entering illegally. At a minimum, that should include witholding citizenship. ...

re: The real reason why the Bush family and other Republicans... - N.O. via West-Cal
No, that's really not it. they are voting for Clinton because they believe that Trump is unfit for the presidency. You can disagree all you want with their vote - I'm not voting for Clinton, either - but your post is a good example of what ruins our political discourse: automatically ascribing ill m...

re: Black People, Not White, Keep Black People Down - N.O. via West-Cal
One doesn't have to deny the existence (or possible existence) of systemic or structural inequities to acknowledge how much power the individual really does have over his own life. And it doesn't require miraculous talents or efforts, just hard work and goal setting. It is downright stunning to see ...

re: Oklahoma Cop Who Killed Terence Crutcher to Face 1st Degree Manslaughter Charge - N.O. via West-Cal
"I guess if you equate getting drunk to taking a job as a cop that makes sense. I'm not sure how else." I disagree, at least to some extent. Powerman was pointing out that conduct is not excused merely because there was no intent to cause a fatality. A drunk driver who negligently causes a fatali...

re: Louisiana poll: Trump +16 - N.O. via West-Cal
"That currently sends a good message that JBE as the democrat governor is nothing more than a huge fluke and he's likely gone in 2019." I agree. Vitter, for whom I voted despite not liking him, was one of a small number of Republicans JBE could beat. The fact that he pulled off that small feat do...

re: Obama plans to hand over the internet to the UN on 10/1. Trump's statement. - N.O. via West-Cal
I can't believe I'm saying this but I might actually vote for Donald Trump if he keeps saying things like this. I still don't think he has the makeup or knowledge. I think he's wrong on trade and eminent domain. But he is starting to emphasize the very real differences between what he (and a GOP Con...

re: Is anyone else optimistic after how the defense played? - N.O. via West-Cal
Yes, I'm optimistic but cautiously so. Big thumbs up to the D on the overall effort Sunday but I worry that it's not easily replicable. 3 turnovers are hard to come by and the Giants sure moved the ball a lot for a team that only scored 9 offensive points. I still see a big problem with a CB corps t...

The ability to go through progressions and operate from under center are two marks of a pro-style QB, and he has them both. Plenty of pro style guys are mobile....

re: Post your most hated liberal terms - N.O. via West-Cal
"Investment." Not an inherently bad word, but when a liberal uses it, you better keep your hand on your wallet, because the liberal really means "spending" and it's your money he aims to spend. ...

re: don's speeech tonight was not ethical, and made me depressed about conservatism - N.O. via West-Cal
Why did anything in your speech surprise you? Trump is not and so far as I know, has never been a conservative. Hence my lack of enthusiasm for him. But there was nothing "unethical" about what he said....

re: Tharold Simon waived - obligatory should we? - N.O. via West-Cal
I am for trying any CB who might help. The situation is pretty dire so far as I can tell. My only hope is that these guys are so young that they could improve a good deal. Also, perhaps we could scheme a little better and possibly even blitz more. At least they would not have to cover for as long...

"You look at HS football in Louisiana, Mississippi, and East Texas, the top programs are always graduating guys that could be Danny Etling 3-4 years from now." In one sense I agree with you, but something has happened over the past 20 or so years that makes this more difficult, at least for a tea...

re: Moscona said Harris skipped Alma Mater and Team handshakes - N.O. via West-Cal
"He was booed by 70k in his own stadium. I think he and LSU are even now." He was booed, but there is no way it was anywhere close to this number. Only about 70k were even there and most, at least around me, were not booing, and I damn sure wasn't. ...
