re: Can Bama Hold Off Clemson? - Globetrotter747
[quote]Sounds exactly like what people would say about Alabama in the mid 2000's. All it takes is 1 good hire.[/quote] Yeah, but Alabama had a hungry fan base and paid what it took for Saban, his assistants, and all the facility projects since then. Miami isn’t going to do that....

re: Michael Jordan:"Black Folks Need to Stay Out of White Churches" - Globetrotter747
I’m an atheist. It’s always seemed that “God” has a hard time breaking cultural barriers. Most people stick with the norms of their upbringing, including racial segregation in social settings in the Deep South....

re: Can Bama Hold Off Clemson? - Globetrotter747
[quote]If FSU and Miami could ever get their shite together again Clemson would be in trouble.[/quote] I think Miami is finished. They were the top program when I was growing up, but I would be shocked if they win another natty in my lifetime. Money (for coaching salaries and facilities) is too im...

Observing An Extinct Species - Globetrotter747
If you could get a close (but safe) look at a live specimen of any extinct species of animal - T-Rex, Megalodon, Argentinosaurus, Titanoboa, Woolly Mammoth, Saber-Toothed Tiger, whatever - what would be your choice?...

re: Handing California the power to elect president - Globetrotter747
[quote]Congrats! You just disenfranchised yourself. This is the dumbest statement made on this issue. You would literally never see another presidential candidate in your state campaigning even if he was from there...[/quote] I don't care. I can watch on TV. I wouldn't go to a campaign rally if i...

re: Handing California the power to elect president - Globetrotter747
[quote]Just in case you missed civics class, Government is supposed to be representatives OF THE PEOPLE. Not of NY and Cali.[/quote] What better way to represent the people than to give us all an equal vote in a national election regardless of where we live? Or at least divide the electoral colle...

re: Handing California the power to elect president - Globetrotter747
[quote]Republicans in California don't really feel the need to vote in presidential elections because they know the Democrats will carry their state.[/quote] I vote anyway but don’t feel like my vote matters much when I don’t vote GOP here in Alabama. I think voter turnout would increase in all o...

re: NY Times ... ‘happiest of all’ American wives are ‘religious conservatives.’ - Globetrotter747
[quote]Atheism is fundamentally nihilistic. People with no purpose, no meaning, and no hope tend to fall into despair.[/quote] Or we recognize how lucky we are to be here and make the most of it by having a helluva lot more fun than going to church....

re: Do you participate in political Facebook discussions/comment on posts? - Globetrotter747
I strongly advise against discussing your political and religious views on social media, especially if they are (like mine) contrary to the norm and you have a job in which your public perception matters. ...

re: Deadly climbing season in the Himalayas - Globetrotter747
[quote]That's awful though. One day I want to trek to Everest just to see it. Seems like you can even fathom how big that sumbitch is unless you're standing beneath it.[/quote] I've seen Everest from a plane. I would love to hike to Base Camp one day. [img]http://pic20.picturetrail.com/VOL1422...

re: A stepdad with your child - Globetrotter747
[quote]This situation sounds trashy[/quote] There's actually a lot more to it. Man #1 (who I referred to in my original post) has three kids and is divorced from Woman #1. Woman #1 is with Man #2 (who I don't think has a kid) and it's getting serious. Man #1 is now dating Woman #2, who ...

A stepdad with your child - Globetrotter747
Does it (or would it) bother you to see a stepdad (or perhaps your ex's new BF) being active and affectionate with your child in the ways a typical father would be? If you saw pictures on social media of your young son hoisted on the shoulders of another man or on a fishing trip, etc., how would you...

re: Jim Carrey on Alabama’s abortion law - Globetrotter747
[quote]I don’t know what made that dude snap, but he’s gone off the deep end. I can see him ending up living secluded in an old shack in the Canadian Rockies looking like Ted Kaczynski.[/quote] Have you been to the Canadian Rockies? The mountains are beyond beautiful. I could so spend a summer in...

Best Candidate vs. Trump - Globetrotter747
Let me first say that I’m not a skyscreaming liberal who is anti-Trump, even though I don’t particularly like him as a person regardless of his politics. I’m just curious who people think would have the best chance to beat him in ‘20 even if it’s someone who is not likely to run. I don’t think Biden...

re: Clemson LB Shaq Smith (expected starter) has entered the Portal - Globetrotter747

Defining Moments In Presidential Campaigns - Globetrotter747
What are some moments you can think of that defined past presidential campaigns for better or worse? The moments that may not have necessarily won or lost the election but were among the high and low points. A couple off the top of my head: Dukakis in the tank in '88 and Clinton addressing the la...

re: Can Bama Hold Off Clemson? - Globetrotter747
[quote]New success is the only success that counts.[/quote] Success that's relevant to what's going on today is what I count. Alabama's pretty much been on a plateau since '09. Clemson's steadily improved as Dabo has learned and gained credibility. There's every reason to think Clemson can (n...
