re: When did the American people start hating each other? - Ralph_Wiggum
As others have pointed out we have had great divisions in the past like the Civil War. But in more recent times I think you can point to a time after the World War II we did agree on the broad issues of the country. You did find consensus in things like ending Segregation and making sure people had ...

re: Good read in the ADVOCATE..... Where were you during Morris HR - Ralph_Wiggum
I was watching it on tv in my apartment in Baton Rouge. I was living South of campus on Burbank Drive. I had an understated response to the homer. I think I just didn't really get yet what happened. I was happy, but I guess it was like watching a fireworks show or a beautiful sunset you just take...

re: Why do so many middle class African Americans vote for the left? - Ralph_Wiggum
Because many African-Americans have become middle-class to things like affirmative action, equal opportunity and utilize public schools and universities and saw that it was left-wing politicians that have supported Civil Rights and policies that African-Americans favor since the 1950s. Plus for m...

re: George Will has left the Republican Party - Ralph_Wiggum
This is sort of a big deal. He wrote for the Washington Post and was on ABC's This Week and now he's of Fox. His column for the Washington Post was considered required reading for Conservatives. He was a favorite of the Reagans if that matters anymore to Republicans. Basically in the 1980s and 1990s...

re: World is sick of liberals - Ralph_Wiggum
You make me laugh. You do realize that about half of the membership of the British Labour Party was in favor of Brexit. You do realize that global trade and immigrant are conservative ideas based on the fact that the easy flow of capital and labor makes getting a greater return on capital possible. ...

re: Mexicans in front of Supreme Court crying and sobbing..... insane - Ralph_Wiggum
[quote]Mexicans and those from further south are not part of "western" civilization. That distinction belongs to western Europe, Canada and the U.S.[/quote] I disagree. Mexicans are Christian--most Roman Catholic and speak Spanish which is from Latin and Latin took a lot from Greek. The Spanish c...

re: Should college baseball use wood bats? - Ralph_Wiggum
Yes use wood bats. I'm convinced the ugly sound of clank and clang turn people off of college baseball Plus allowing more inside pitches would make both the pitchers and batters better. Not as many bats break as you think they do. Bill Terry the last national leaguer to bat .400 used two or thr...

re: Sportings News has Miles as the 10th best coach in cfb. - Ralph_Wiggum
Dantonio is 5 and Harbaugh is 6. Dantonio is a great coach and should be top ten but are both of them better than Miles? I get that Dantonio has done the most with less but Miles should be ranked higher than Harbaugh. I can see him behind Dantonio but behind Harbaugh?...

re: Which franchise move was most devastating? - Ralph_Wiggum
I would add to the list the Cardinals in football leaving Chicago. Now you have to recall the the Bears payed in Wrigley field until the early 1970s since there was no reason to move to soldier field in that the attendance and demand wasn't great enough. The Cards played in the South side in Comisk...

re: Mexicans in front of Supreme Court crying and sobbing..... insane - Ralph_Wiggum
I would interpret it differently. They want to stay in America and become Americans and citizens and now it will be much more difficult. I don't get the dislike of Mexican immigrants regardless of legal or illegal. They are Christian and speak a European language and part of Western Civilization ...

re: CBSSports.com LSU's Football Mount Rushmore - Ralph_Wiggum
I would have Jim Taylor on there instead of Hodson though Hodson is an all-time great. I have no problem with Miles. He has won a national championship and in more major bowl games than any other LSU coach. ...

re: Should the CWS rotate to different locations? - Ralph_Wiggum
It would be nice to rotate the game if the NCAA and college baseball were interested in growing interest in the sport. The truth is that the CWS gets a few paragraphs if that in the sports pages across the country. You can look at the Chicago Tribune, New York Times, Boston Globe, and other papers a...

re: Alex Rodriguez : Baseball will be most popular sport within next 5-10 years - Ralph_Wiggum
Football has to address the concussion and CTE issue. More and more parents are not letting their children play football or they are waiting until the child is older. If your child is athletic enough to be potential QB, RB, WR, CB, TE, and LB those skills are transferable to basketball if you have h...

re: University of washington basketball ? - Ralph_Wiggum
Seattle is a pretty cool town. I mean in some ways it blows away Durham, Lawrence, and Lexington if you want a real cosmopolitan big city that is pretty liberal. Plus there are a lot of good basketball players on the West Coast and that includes Western Canada. I've always thought that you can...
