re: Most overrated musician - AbuTheMonkey
Don't even care about his politics. 95% of the musicians I love have politics that I disagree with. Springsteen is a mediocre musician and songwriter and is elevated to the pantheon of American greats mostly because Baby Boomers from the Eastern seaboard wouldn't know good music if it shoved the...

re: SEC Metro GDP Growth - AbuTheMonkey
[quote]quote: +4.1%- Huntsville Really surprised to see Huntsville this low. The Huntsville-Madison area was booming with opportunity in so many sectors while I was there from 2010-2014.[/quote] 2012 to 2015 is a pretty narrow time window - thin enough that any number of unique, exogenous f...

re: Why does the US have low population distribution? (EC related) - AbuTheMonkey
Makes me think tex either is pretty young or just started following politics in the last few years. Prop 8 was one of the biggest political stories of 2008 after the campaign/election of Obama and the start of the Recession....

re: Why does the US have low population distribution? (EC related) - AbuTheMonkey
You made a rather stupid comment about "1990's and Rasmussen polls", and you got called out on it. Prop 8 wasn't that long ago and was a huge deal to anyone paying attention to national affairs at the time. Take your loss and move on....

re: Per The Athletic: Pressure building for an 8 team playoff from conference/school admins - AbuTheMonkey
[quote] As a fan of the SEC, I for one would not want to travel to Ohio State in January to play a football game. I would hate to see my team have better athletes struggle because they are playing a game in 30 degree conditions.[/quote] Tough shit, and it's part of the sport. Should NFL tea...

re: Boston DA lists crimes she won’t prosecute - AbuTheMonkey
It is a shitty policy W/R/T petty property crime, though. That’s the problem. Jurisdictions need to be tough as hell on it, and both the economics and recent public policy scholarship back me up on that. Dollars invested in making a hard line on property crime tend to positively correlate to gr...
