re: George Will devolves further into senility - maine82
I'm against protectionism but that isn't my chief concern. If Reagan or W. were protectionist, I'd be annoyed but I could still easily vote for either. My problem is his character. He's insecure, vindictive and self-absorbed. It should be obvious to anyone who isn't a Trumpkin. Furthermore, t...

re: Kim Mulkey for men's basketball coach?? What do you think? - maine82
I'll say this, I think Becky Hammon will probably eventually be a head coach in the NBA, and if she can draw free agents just as easily as any male head coach can, this becomes a different conversation....

re: Kim Mulkey for men's basketball coach?? What do you think? - maine82
[quote]I am quite sure she can recruit great basketball players.[/quote] I would just be interested in seeing how male high school basketball recruits would respond to her. Would they give her a fair hearing or are there too many young high school men who sub-consciously say, "I'm not comfortabl...

re: Kim Mulkey for men's basketball coach?? What do you think? - maine82
[quote]Could she recruit 17 year old boys??[/quote] That's the million-dollar question. No doubt she can do Xs and Os. I'd like to see her coach at a UL-Lafayette or a UNO first before we take that chance, to see how she does....

re: Was it possible for the South to win the Civil War? - maine82
Maybe if the Confederacy had strung together two or three demoralizing victories in 1862 before the mid-term elections, the Democrats would have gained control of the United States Congress and forced Lincoln to draw the Civil War to an early conclusion, leaving the Confederacy alone or allowed to c...

re: Russia: Say Putin makes a further push to re-annex the Eastern Bloc, why care? - maine82
[quote]Are they going to be paying us back when we send them a bill? Shouldn't we get made whole?[/quote] Their interests are our interests. Again, any time in the 20th century where we decided not to be world police, problems eventually spiraled out of control to the point where we were affecte...

re: Russia: Say Putin makes a further push to re-annex the Eastern Bloc, why care? - maine82
[quote]Where were these forces when Russia invaded Crimea? Seems like it would have been pretty easy for them to move military assets down the road to confront the tyrant Putin rather than do nothing in hopes that daddy would come and bail them out from 1/2 a world away.[/quote] 1. There are very...

[quote]Say Putin makes a further push to re-annex the Eastern Bloc, why care?[/quote] Because the history of the 20th century is that when things start burning in Europe and the Middle East, we are inevitably drawn in. World War I - Europe devolves into chaos, and sinking of the RMS Lusitania ...
