re: College Professor Arrested for Bloody Bike Lock Attack at Battle of Berkeley - TxTiger82
Looks like the guy is no longer an adjunct, either: [quote]“The instructor mentioned in the social media allegations is not teaching at DVC this semester and we have had no contact with this individual since last fall,” said Christine Knox, Director of Marketing and Communications at DVC.[/quote]...

Seriously, why downvote? What I'm saying is true. The guy doesn't even have a Ph.D. He's not a "professor."...

re: College Professor Arrested for Bloody Bike Lock Attack at Battle of Berkeley - TxTiger82
[quote]Community college is a real college.[/quote] An adjunct is not the same as a tenured or tenure-track professor. Adjuncts are paid by the class. They are not full-time employees. You can quibble all you want about community college vs. four-year college. The point is that calling him a "...

re: Post your top stories of ill behaving youth sports parents - TxTiger82
When I was in high school, I was a youth soccer ref (I mean, for like 5 year olds). I did this one game where the "coach" wouldn't stop cursing at his own son, who was supposed to play goalie but really just wanted to chase the ball like all the other kids (hard to get them to stay in position at...

[quote]The ira was literally bombing churches in Northern Ireland and you don't call that persecution? [/quote] No one is denying that happened. I simply question the rest of your little story, which conveniently glosses over the previous 800 years of history. ...

re: Did You Know There Are Two Irelands? (European Smugness Anecdote) - TxTiger82
[quote]Northern Ireland gained their freedom from Southern Ireland [/quote] That's the most twisted version of that story I've ever heard. The phrase "gained their freedom" makes it seem like they were a part of the Republic of Ireland. They weren't. But you already know that. Stop revising hist...

re: Did You Know There Are Two Irelands? (European Smugness Anecdote) - TxTiger82
[quote]I know more about French culture than probably most Americans because I grew up in Louisiana. [/quote] Somehow I doubt you know much about French history, either. For example, did you know that the Kings of England were French from 1066 to 1485? Did you know that one of these French Kings ...

[quote]I am too, however, Mexico's claim is that their fishermen do not kill dolphins, and they follow international rules in protecting them. Who knows for sure, though?[/quote] Clearly, we believe that they have been lying. I'm not anti-Mexico or anything. In fact, I basically lived there f...

[quote]too many Republicans are uniparty stooges[/quote] The Freedom Caucus is the faction that blocked the Obamacare replacement bill, calling it "Obamacare lite." This observation contradicts your narrative. It was the small government wing of the party that blocked the bill, not the RINOs. ...

A simpler explanation would be that the Republican Party has multiple factions within the party structure, and those factions can't agree on the key issues. ...

re: For Those Who Support Sanctuary Cities, Convince Me Why It's a Good Thing - TxTiger82
Why should some idiot in a different place get to have a say about local metropolitan issues? You don't have a say because you don't live in a sanctuary city. Your opinion is irrelevant, and I don't feel the need to persuade you. How's that answer?...

re: The Ultimate Civil War Debate: Ulysses S. Grant or Robert E. Lee? - TxTiger82
Lee was a tactically superior general. But Grant had the resources and the will to do the job. If I had to hire one, I'd hire Lee. But that's not to deny what Grant did....
