re: Two #18s: Lloyd Cushenberry III and K’Lavon Chaisson! - DRMPHD
Offensive linemen can’t wear a number below 50 so they won’t be confused with eligible receivers. Doesn’t apply to defensive linemen. ...

re: Is Jacquelin Roy considered to be as good as Ishamel Sopsher? - DRMPHD
Simple: Jackie Sherrill was coaching Pitt when those two signed! That guy was a world class cheat! Could probably even teach Saban a trick or two! (although Sherrill eventualy got caught, and Saban not yet)....

re: In Louisiana, you need twice the minimum wage to afford a 2-bedroom apartment - DRMPHD
[quote] minimum wage [/quote] [quote]average two-bedroom apartment[/quote] The OP's whole post is based on a false comparison. Who expected a person earning minimum wage to live in the "average" apartment? If you make below average wages, chances are you live in below average housing, and pay ...

re: Neil Cavuto is such a cuck. - DRMPHD
Good try. No dice. Actually, I’ve been in the private sector for the last 23 years. I’m a consultant now and companies large and small pay lots of money for my expertise. But keep making yourself look like a fool and talk abour shite you know nothing about. ...

re: Neil Cavuto is such a cuck. - DRMPHD
Let me see...I have a PhD in economics and taught international trade at LSU when I was a full time professor, so yes I have taken economics. As for why no inflationary pressure, no tariffs were imposed on Mexico. We will see on China but the economy is slowing and the fed is has been raising rates...

re: Neil Cavuto is such a cuck. - DRMPHD
Seriously? Have you ever taken economics? If American goods were cheaper than Mexican goods, the Mexican goods would not sell anyway and tariffs would be unnecessary. People who would buy Mexican goods will pay higher prices even if they buy American goods after the tariffs are imposed. Further, ...

re: Opinions on Blackjack boats - DRMPHD
I fish mostly Aransas and Copano in my Shallowsport 21 Sport. I love that boat. I've had it about 2 years and am amazed at how shallow it can run. I'm sure someday I will regret finding out its limits, but so far so good! Probably not an ideal boat to run in anything beyond moderate chop, and to...

re: Dumb question, I know, but is Islam a form of Christianity? - DRMPHD
Interestingly, Islam does have a thing for Mary. She is the only woman mentioned by name in the Quran (and is mentioned by name more often in the Quran than the New Testament), and they do affirm the virgin birth. What I cannot understand is, if you believe Jesus is just another profit, why was th...

re: Does Woodward bring Pat Henry back with him??? - DRMPHD
Quite frankly, if it wasn't for Title IX, most of those programs wouldn't exist. They are a waste of resources. I know that's the minority opinion, but so be it....

re: Does Woodward bring Pat Henry back with him??? - DRMPHD
I know not everyone here thinks this way, but honestly, I would be ok with letting all those programs descend into mediocrity in return for championships in football. I hope Woodward's priorities are (in order) football, basketball, baseball..................everything else....

re: On Finebaum show, Texas caller said it's a longshot that Woodward will stay. - DRMPHD
[quote]It’s the Aggie boards that are talking about Sharp running off Woodward. [/quote] There are some on the aggie boards that think there is tension between Woodward and Sharp, but most of the comments I have seen are how Sharp botched it by including only a $40,000 buyout in Woodward's contr...

re: On Finebaum show, Texas caller said it's a longshot that Woodward will stay. - DRMPHD
Despite living in College Station, I have no inside information, but this can't be true. Surely Buzz Williams is a huge step up from Billy Kennedy (A&M was putrid this year), and money whipping Buzz (even though he was known to have ties to College Station, and some desire to take the job) could no...

re: Rogan and Shapiro agree: get government out of marriage - DRMPHD
Why don't you tell me what you think marriage is then that it is so godawful necessary that the government involve itself. You do realize that marriage existed for centuries without government involvement? I assure you that whether I have a religious marriage, a civil marriage, or I just sign a co...

re: Rogan and Shapiro agree: get government out of marriage - DRMPHD
Why not? I wouldn't bet against government getting out of the marriage game. Again, what legitimate role is there for the government in what is otherwise a private decision about how individuals choose to organize their lives?...

re: Rogan and Shapiro agree: get government out of marriage - DRMPHD
I agree completely that the government should get out of marriage. The government's default position ought to be that it has no role in how consenting adults choose to organize their private lives. It has always struck me as odd that the position of proponents of gay marriage really amounts to an ...

re: NASA scientist: "We're toast" - DRMPHD
As a real scientist (Niels Bohr) one said: Prediction is hard, especially about the future!

re: Chicago PD is Strangley Releasing too much Info - DRMPHD
Easy to explain though. Jussie played the CPD for fools. I'm sure that pissed them off. Then the latest GMA interview he gave after he knew they were closing in on him must have sent them over the edge! If I were CPD, I'd want the world to know what a lying POS Jussie is....
