re: John Brennan reveals real reasons swamp rats are up in arms over revoked security clearanc - SpqrTiger
I just don’t get why people who no longer hold a position with the government think they can continue to hold a security clearance. If you’re no longer on the job, you shouldn’t have the benefits of the job. The only people who should have clearance are people who are actively employed or te...

It’s not like Goldeneye has any serious competition. Video games based on movies are notoriously terrible. ...

re: WTF? PA priests molested more than 1,000 children - SpqrTiger
This criminal behavior in the church needs to come to an end. The Pope or reformer who leads the charge on outing all these sons of bitches would be viewed as a hero. It is an opportunity to become one of the great men in Catholic history. Not only is this abhorrent behavior, it is a source ...

re: How many of you had college paid for by your parents? - SpqrTiger
My parents paid half. I paid the other half. Senior year I earned a full scholarship, so my parents were on the hook for 1.5 semesters. That’s not too bad, considering there was no TOPS then. Grad school was mostly covered by scholarships, but I did have to take loans to cover some of it. ...

re: I’m against Trump and nfl players on nfl protests - SpqrTiger
I’m no longer paying attention to any of this anthem BS. I’m watching football. I don’t need everything in my life politicized. And shame on everyone - kneelers and those angry with them - for attempting to ruin football with your bull shite. ...

re: Would you want your son to major in a liberal arts degree? - SpqrTiger
I suppose you could get a liberal arts degree AND become a plumber. If the job is so great, and it’s so easy to get into, then why not? But that goes against the easy narrative that trades workers are super productive and instantly successful while college boys who major in the humanities are all...

re: Did anybody’s SEC pride disappear after 2011 - SpqrTiger
I’ve said this before and I’ll say it again... I used to like the other SEC schools more when I encountered them less. Since the SEC Network came along and the SEC Rant got overrun with fans from other schools, I’ve found that I dislike them more. ...

re: Is 104.5/104.9 ESPN Baton Rouge the worst station in the country? - SpqrTiger
AFR’s only problem is that Moscona tries to hard to entertain. When he focuses on information and is serious, he’s a good listen. When he tries to be funny... he’s nowhere near as funny as he thinks. It’s cringeworthy when he starts laughing at his own stuff. Just stop. Stick to commentary and i...

re: OT hypothetical: let’s say you wanted to conquer the ancient world - SpqrTiger
The Mongols are as good a choice as any, but if we are talking about the whole ancient world, they would run into trouble outside of their flat, relatively dry native environment (composite bows of that era lose their effectiveness in rain and high humidity, for example). But any military out of its...

re: Females in the work place - SpqrTiger
I am a chivalrous person, but opening a car door for someone else is a bit much. Open doors to buildings? Yes. Car doors? No. I’m a man, not a fricking valet. ...

re: Are Dogs Better Friends Than Human Friends? - SpqrTiger
No. Some people need a greater perspective on what a dog is and isn’t. A dog can be a good facsimile of a friend, but it’s no substitute for a friend. A friend is your equal, not your pet. ...

re: London Anti-Trump Protest Signs--which ones fail miserably? - SpqrTiger
I kind of liked “President Fart.” In a sea of people trying so hard to demonstrate classic British dry humor, it stands out as a non-sequitur. ...

re: Shoutout to BRPD for finally running off some College Dr bums today - SpqrTiger
This is true. If you stop giving them money, they will leave. But people won’t stop giving them money. They are soft-hearted, and in Baton Rouge, religiously-oriented, for the most part. They are conditioned to be charitable. The only real practical solution is to run their asses off the streets...

re: MA Passes Gun Confiscation Bill - SpqrTiger
A fifth problem you didn’t mention: does anyone actually believe seized guns will actually be returned to people who are deemed “competent” to own them, or pass the mental health screen? Does anyone actually think their property won’t be somehow “lost” by police evidence rooms that are notoriously i...
