re: WSJ: T'Wolves won the NBA Draft - slackster
[quote]I get where you're coming from, but he's a a 22 year old freak athlete averaging 23 ppg. He will be valuable for a while.[/quote] This is precisely why you flip him. Let other teams fall for the physical attributes while the numbers say he hardly improved, and arguably declined, in year 3....

re: Jimmy butler to Minnesota - slackster
[quote]You're knocking a wing who shot over 48% lol that's insane. Plus you have guys like Dennis Rodman who've led the NBA in FG% you're gonna tell me he's an efficient offensive player or an offensive asset? The reality about Wiggins is he's an A++ athlete who is an advanced defensive player fo...

re: Jimmy butler to Minnesota - slackster
Trades like this just reinforce the idea that teams in the East have no interest in getting better until LeBron leaves. Could no one in the conference put together a better package? ...

re: I like LSU's timing, get fully funded, TOPS funded and then raise tuition 5%. - slackster
This is what happens when you artificially inflate demand with things like TOPS. The amount of waste at an institution of their size is staggering. ...

re: Mississippi wins right to enforce religious exemptions law - slackster
[quote]Yep. I know that people will scream "RACISM" over this. But it isn't. Here's reality. We ALREADY apply this to race. And sex. Oh, I know what the EEOC says. But we have to be honest with ourselves and acknowledge it's a lie. I mean, they do fricking news stories on businesses with ...

re: Mississippi wins right to enforce religious exemptions law - slackster
[quote]ANYONE should be free to refuse to apply THEIR frickING LABOR to something they don't feel comfortable with. I honestly can't even believe in a supposedly free country, that's a point of contention.[/quote] I ask this sincerely - do you extend that to race as well, or are there certain ...

re: Mississippi wins right to enforce religious exemptions law - slackster
[quote]You are dying on your hill.[/quote] You're trying to pick a fight that isn't there. I've already agreed the bill itself is okay in my opinion, but I take issue with an individual who picks and chooses what part of their religion is or is not important. If baking a cake for a gay marriage i...

re: Mississippi wins right to enforce religious exemptions law - slackster
[quote]Your point is still terrible. One is a private act the other is a public act.[/quote] :lol:, and that matters how, exactly, under the law? The point is people pick and choose which ones are most important to them, based on a religion that thinks both are equally wrong. ...

re: Mississippi wins right to enforce religious exemptions law - slackster
[quote]Not without amendment. Those seem to be exclusive under the act.[/quote] I was more so referring to the precedent it sets rather than the specific law itself. Protecting businesses and religious organizations from government intervention for some religious beliefs, but not others, seems li...

re: Mississippi wins right to enforce religious exemptions law - slackster
[quote]Because a same sex couple walks in to buy a cake, its clear that is a gay marriage. A business like a baker doesn't have a questionnaire about ones sexual history along with the list of other sins. Just because he doesn't ask doesn't mean he "doesn't give a frick" [/quote] Fair enough, ...

re: Mississippi wins right to enforce religious exemptions law - slackster
[quote]This a terrible comparison.[/quote] How so? Both are explicitly outlined in HB 1523. I'm Catholic, and same sex marriage and premarital sex are both prohibited. Refusing to serve someone in a same sex wedding under the guise of religious freedom seems hypocritical unless I also refuse to ...

[quote]Honestly, who cares if a small town pharmacy cashier decides that she won't sell condoms to a 15 year old besides the 15 year old? [/quote] No one. I'm just pointing out that some religious exemptions are more important than others in practice. A baker won't make a cake for a gay wedding, ...
