re: JTIII out as Georgetown head coach - Ralph_Wiggum
It's tough for schools that don't have P5 football programs to compete year in and year in the NCAA. Gonzaga and Villanova are exceptions but if you look at the sweet 16 it's dominated by P5 football schools. ...

re: Pat Kelsey decides against taking UMASS MBB job right before intro presser - Ralph_Wiggum

re: Life w/o parole for 2.4 lbs. of weed + 104 years for 30g of cocaine: welcome to Alabama - Ralph_Wiggum
It would be cheaper to put the guy on food stamps, welfare, medicaid and give him subsidized housing that putting him in jail for the rest of his life. It would be even cheaper to send him to drug treatment, job counseling and training, and mental health treatment than to put him in jail for the...

re: Arkansas GOP declare pornography and hooters a public health crisis - Ralph_Wiggum
A lot of young woman go into pornography in our world capitalist economy because they have no other employable skills that will get them as much money per hour or so. If you can get $400 to $1200 per scene and it can takes a few hours to do a scene if you have a day where you do two scenes it ma...

re: Why have cosmetic surgery cost gone down while healthcare cost have gone up? - Ralph_Wiggum
Equating getting a face lift versus getting surgery for cancer is a massive mistake. Face lifts are optional and not necessary to live. If you get a mastectomy it's to save your life and the medical profession knows people have a choice between living and dying which throws the market and market bas...

re: Winston Churchill is no better than Adolf Hitler says Indian politician Dr Shashi Tharoor - Ralph_Wiggum
If you read up on Indian History you'll get their point of view. Churchill to them was an imperialist who let Indians die and starve to serve the interests of the British Empire. If you were Indian you'd have a different opinion of Winston Churchill. ...

re: End Occupational Licensing---a protectionist barrier to work for many - Ralph_Wiggum
You can make a good argument for a licensed barber in that they have to sterilize their instruments between customers, they need to know basic safety and first aid if they are going to give you a shave and cut your hair with razor and knives. I believe that if you let anyone call themselves a ba...

re: Is this the year Goodell does away with Thursday Night Football? - Ralph_Wiggum
The money the NFL gets means the game won't go away unless the tv money decreases. Given ESPN's problems and the albatross MNF is for ESPN, we may end up having to pay for each NFL game like the Direct Tv package. ...

re: 538: Americans don't live around the other party anymore. Purple America gone - Ralph_Wiggum
[quote]Baselessly smearing the majority of americans with false accusations of being racist, bigoted, xenophobic, sexist, homophobes isn't working.[/quote] They only do that to Trump voters which represents at the most 25% of all Americans when you see that only 25% of all eligible voters voted ...

re: Should teachers get paid extra for teaching at bad schools? - Ralph_Wiggum
Kids at these failing schools should be given some sort of boarding/state school experience. Take them away from their parents and put them in a school setting that's similar to summer camp or boot camp. Kids live in barracks style housing with a cafeteria, study areas, recreational areas, lounges ...

re: The Real Danger - Bernie Sanders - Ralph_Wiggum
The fact that so many of you hate him so much is awesome. It means he has really struck fear into many of you. Your days of exploiting the labor of others just for the accumulation of capital will catch up with you. The vast majority of Americans aren't interested in the endless accumulation of c...

re: Isn't cutting the NEA just feel good legislation? - Ralph_Wiggum
Your average Trump voter is hyper-patriotic and suffers from low self-esteem because they think the country has been stolen from them by people who have different religions, languages, customs, culture and skin color. One way you boost self-esteem is to identify with a winner. That's why you hav...

[quote]I too am confused as to why anyone at LSU would want him. The guy is at a blue blood basketball school that basically recruits itself and he still can't make the tourney, even in a down year for the B1G, and you guys think that he would somehow be successful at a school where hoops is a compl...

re: Source: Looming ESPN layoffs have sparked 'panic of biblical proportions' among talent - Ralph_Wiggum
ESPN when it showed midget car racing and Australian rules football and this week in the NASL didn't have this problem. People want live sports and they don't need 30 for 30 or three hours of College Football Game Day. I mean I remember when 30 minutes was all you needed for a pregame show. Just...
