Why are european clubs so quick to fire managers? - benhamin5555
So Ancelotti was sacked today, for those of you who don't know. One year after leading Madrid to ultimate glory. It's like if Greg Popovich was fired for not winning an NBA title this year. I don't see how you can fire a man as decorated as Ancelotti who won the title last season, just based o...

re: The pro-choice movement vs the gay marriage movement. - benhamin5555
Simple. There are plenty of legitimate arguments against abortion, the main one being that you are protecting the right to life of a baby. There is not a single good argument for government telling consenting adults that they cannot enter a mutual contract together. People are starting to realize...

re: Away goals rule - benhamin5555
But the away goal rule, while it encourages the away team to attack, also encourages the home team to park the bus after they have scored a goal. Or if the first leg was a 1-1 draw, the home team in the second leg would want to stall out for a 0-0 draw....

Away goals rule - benhamin5555
What do you guys think about the away goals rule? I personally think it is lame. Why not have OT/shootout if aggregate is tied after both legs? If Real Madrid had won 1-0 today it would have been a pretty lame way to decided a semi-final of the biggest annual tournament. It seems very arbitrar...

What if we were able to decide where our tax money went? - benhamin5555
This is going to sound ridiculous at first, and probably isn't practical at all, but hear me out. What if, instead of having the gov't decide their own budget, citizens were able to. Everyone would still have to pay the same amount of total taxes, but they would get to choose which government pro...

I'm gonna ignore the serving in the military part cause it's not really relevant anyway.

So no, I can't agree with y...

Getting tired of the conservative circle jerk on here - benhamin5555
So as you've all probably noticed, like 90% of Poli board posters are economically conservative. Which is not inherently bad, but it's gotten to the point of being a circle-jerk where we reply to every liberal poster with personal insults like "Rex;dr" instead of actually disputing their points. ...
