re: Supreme Court Takes Case That Could End Internet Censorship, Expand First Amendment - memphis tiger

re: Supreme Court Takes Case That Could End Internet Censorship, Expand First Amendment - memphis tiger
[quote]How so? The Bill of Rights limits government actions not private company rules. This sounds like a case where conservative constitutionalists will rule in favor of a leftist group[/quote] Maybe, but if these companies get any federal support or if they engage in any type of political actio...

If LSU was undefeated we would be no worse than 3. And if we were undefeated on the morning of 11/2 we would probably be #2. They would have absolutely loved #1 Bama at #2 LSU ...

re: Chargers struggling in LA market - memphis tiger
[quote]. My guess is Mexico City getting a team.[/quote] Would be a disaster. Just for security purposes alone. I see kidnappings, murder threats and serious game fixing if the nfl really puts a team there. ...

re: The scariest movie you've ever seen? - memphis tiger
[quote] Another one that really scared me shitless was Silence of the Lambs[/quote] This one is up there for me as well. Mainly because it was so real. Monster movies never really scared me because deep down I knew it was all fake. But Buffalo Bill could be a real serial killer and tha...

re: Apparently Obama’s idea to put Harriet Tubman on the $20 bill is dead in the water - memphis tiger
[quote] I endorse removing Grant but let's put someone like Thomas Edison on it instead. He invented electric power generation, mass communication, sound recording, and motion pictures and all of them completely changed the world. One slave freeing a few hundred slaves is small potatoes in ...
