    Shocking news in the world of rap music

    A double homicide in the world of rap isn't shocking. Shocking would be if I ever hear a rap song I like that wasn't written and performed by Weird Al.

    Joe Flacco traded to Denver

    History repeats. Elway was a shadow of himself when he finally won. His heyday was past him and those were the Terrell Davis years as #1 overall FF RB.

    Thugs destroy a gas station

    It's a solid quote overall but the math makes me shudder. I'm going to guess you were in high school 24 years ago which is when your history teacher would have said 130 years ago because we're at 154 years now.

    Joe Flacco traded to Denver

    His gamble of backing up the Brinks truck to Peyton Manning's house paid off. Coming off injury like that, he gambled the neck injury would be a non-issue and that Peyton still had juice in the tank.

    Trump Approval Rating at 52%

    You send Trump around the swing states he narrowly won in the Midwest talking about killing NAFTA and about record low unemployment and then compare that to the far leftist fruitcake candidate the Dems come up with who instinctively obsesses about LBGT, patriarchy, race bating wedge issues 24/7 and see what happens.
  7. We had found such brilliant people to design and plan it. Who possibly could have predicted it would go over budget like this? Inconceivable.

    Nancy blinked: 5.7 for Wall............developing.

    I can answer that as it's something I struggle with more frequently than not. One reason to support the Sanctuary City candidate might be that the other candidate, the one who doesn't like Sanctuary Cities also supports X, Y, and Z. Unfortunately, you happen to hate X, Y, and Z too. As a matter of fact, you hate X, Y, and Z worse than you hate Sanctuary Cities so then you come back around and take a second look at the Sanctuary City candidate and saay.... hmmm.... maybe this one is less awful after all. The Sanctuary City candidate may well come out on top in a "whichever turd smells less bad" contest. Happily, I don't think that'll be the case in 2020. I'm likely to vote FOR Trump because I actually like Trump rather than hold my nose for Candidate A because I dislike Candidate B worse as happens too often.
  9. You can't have a president and vice president from the same state. But I'd not answered that the first time as I recognized that your post had been tongue in cheek.

    Trump Approval Rating at 52%

    He'd been right around 45% for the last long time. This may be an outlier that'll return to normal after the SOTU boost but it's still nice to see him over 50% despite the nonstop media abuse.
  12. I can't keep up. I'm just not generating any enthusiasm this early in the primaries to pay attention to which Dems are running and why. Frankly, I'm highly likely to vote for Trump in 2020 but when the time comes, I'll be willing to give the Dems an ear. Someone like Sherrod Brown or Jim Webb could maybe win me over from Trump with the right appeal, but knowing what I know of the Dems at present, I can't fathom how somebody I might like better than Trump could possibly emerge from the Democratic field. I noticed they're so far keeping their same super delegate idea that makes their entire process of choosing a Democratic presidential nominee a farce of going through the motions and wind up choosing the DNC elites' preferred candidate regardless anyway. The process has proved to be such a smashing success, giving us an extraordinary and exemplary candidate the last time.

    Granted my experience is eighteen years ago when that site was a few months old and had not yet not seen it's first football season yet, but I got banned for a non-infraction. I've told this story a few times. Somebody posted a totally non-inflammatory mild post, something not much different than what FF is talking about, and he got banned for it. In truth, I don't quite recall what was posted by that other member. What I do recall is coming to his defense and saying "hey that guy's a really good contributor and he made a non-inflammatory post, I don't see why he got banned for it. We should be more careful." Very mild as I'd already seen many, many examples of how easy it was to get banned there. It didn't matter how mild I'd typed it though, I got banned for politely standing up for a person unjustly banned. It's the first/only time I'd ever been banned from a site. So despite him being reasonable, and me being reasonable, we both got banned. It's why stopped going there and it's why I've been here for eighteen years. I'm an adult, I won't tolerate being treated like a child. I can't say if things are the same now or not, but based on what I've seen, FF's reasoning rings true. It isn't any different from my experience from long ago. It's somehow become a popular site so whatever they're doing is working for them and their users, they can run their site however they like it, but they will run it without me. Even walking on eggshells like I was I still couldn't abide them.

    Video: The Truth About Nick Sandmann in 15 Minutes

    Horrible. A good example of what gets labeled as fake news. Most MSM outlets have walked it back, we'll see what emerges from the various lawsuits.
