re: How does authoritarianism get labeled far right? - SpringBokCock
So, Trump sending in the federal government to control anarchist rioting is a left wing move? And protestors rioting for anarchy is a right wing move? So Antifa are actually extreme libertarians? I never knew that. ...

re: How does authoritarianism get labeled far right? - SpringBokCock
Disagree. Fascism is authoritarian government with private property rights largely preserved. Communism is authoritarian government where the state owns the means of production and other property. This is why fascism is right wing whereas communism is left wing. The “national socialism” of...

re: How does authoritarianism get labeled far right? - SpringBokCock
Communism (left wing) and fascism (right wing) are equally authoritarian. It’s why Stalin was the enemy of Hitler and Mussolini even though all three were dictators. A modern version would be Venezuela versus Brazil. While both are theoretically still democracies each is cursed with a de fact...

re: So let me get this straight: Trump is holding his first rally since the pandemic... - SpringBokCock
Maybe OP was agitating — not many white people would think of Juneteenth. It does make an interesting point though. Trump’s rallies are all unscripted and firing up the base. Between The Rona and the post George Floyd stuff, he is taking a huge risk of a rally backfiring. He can’t do his usual...

re: Rate the SEC State Flags - SpringBokCock
I don’t believe anyone takes more pride in their flag than South Carolina. We have that logo on hats, shirts, lapel pins, earrings, window stickers. I believe that is because the flag is so unlike any other. That plus the general “f$ck y’all” attitude In our state that made us the first state to se...

re: To pass the time share your funny scary travel moments - SpringBokCock
Flying from Johannesburg to Nairobi on Kenya Airways. About 200 people waiting at the gate and no Kenya Airways staff show up. Finally about 45 minutes after the scheduled departure, the gate agents show up and we board. After takeoff, the captain announces "Welcome aboard Kenya Airways Flight ...

re: Where to stay in Charleston - SpringBokCock
I’m not crazy about the Vendue after the remodel. The remodel is pretty generic. Vendue has the rooftop bar, but otherwise has been surpassed by the Bohemian and the Spectator. Hotels and restaurants in Charleston are in an arms race akin to SEC athletic facilities. Vendue is a generation behin...

re: Where to stay in Charleston - SpringBokCock
Yes, you definitely want to stay in the historic city. It’s the whole point of going to Charleston. Make your dinner reservations now. There are many hotels to choose from, all are expensive because the city is so popular. Wentworth Inn is too far away. Stayed at the Restoration last week...

re: Baws who own/owned Land Rovers - SpringBokCock
Owned a 2007 LR3 and a 2016 Sport. Wife had a 2015 Evoque and now drives a 2020 Evoque. And for good measure, I now drive an F-Pace. I don’t put a lot of miles on them — less than 50k — but never had any problems. They are complicated and have a lot of features that could go wrong, yet for me ...

re: Headed to London. Day Trip being planned. - SpringBokCock
Fly into London. Take the Eurostar to Amsterdam. Fly home from there. If you’ve already booked your flight in and out of London (and can’t change it), I reckon you can do a day trip. Amsterdam is wholly different than London or Dublin, so worth a short visit. Definitely take the train. I im...

re: Barcelona to Paris - SpringBokCock
For me, it’s an easy choice: train. It’s so much easier. No hassles with security, bags, waiting in line. Plus way more comfortable, easy to move and stretch and walk, big comfortable seats, quieter and something to see outside the window. There would have to be a massive time savings to fly....

re: Some advice on a Canada trip (Probably Toronto) - SpringBokCock
If Vancouver is out, then definitely Montreal - with at least two nights in Quebec City (if not three). Take the train. The later in Spring you can do it, the better, as weather will be an issue - especially in Quebec City where you will do a ton of walking. Montreal is not much different t...

re: Should we add Clemson to the East to create some Parity? - SpringBokCock
Why in the world would you want to add any top-tier team to the SEC? For the money? It’s not like it’s our money. It goes to the athletic departments to fund the facilities arms race. We have parity in facilities anyway, so the balance of powers hasn’t changed. And the cost of being a booster o...
