    The Official Washington Wizards Thread: The JOHN WALL ERA

    I checked out Langford. His numbers are mostly just OK, but I liked what I saw from his cut ups. Confident handle with a strong intermediate game and a real knack for taking it to the basket and finishing through contact. He reminds me of Oladipo with his powerful, hunched over style where he usually seems to be under control, and he keeps that handle nice and low. Kind of see a little bit of Eric Gordon in him too, so maybe two former Indiana 2 guards offer a nice preview of his potential. good call on him, he could be a nice pick too.
  3. Whenever you see a protester circle them and chant "Trump trump trump!" while holding up your sign and security will come and get them. So basically act like a ****ing Moron to protect your freedom of speech.

  5. Based on everything we've observed about Trump since he took office, what gives you the impression this is his idea or that he even understands any of it? I don't view the guy as intelligent enough to have a foreign policy framework, much less one that we can judge as good/bad. To me he's obviously doing what he admin is directing him, and I don't think that's that grand of a statement considering who he has in what roles. At this point I don't even think he has the intellectual capacity to sit down, shut up, and listen to the relevant intelligent officers brief him on things. Does he strike you as the kind of guy that can sit in a 30-60 minute briefing on the going-ons of Iran? Do you think he can even keep straight who's Sunni and who's Shia? Do you think if someone asked him who the Houthie's are that he'd even have a clue as to where to start? I'm betting he'd try to play it off as a music group of some sort. "Yeah, I've listened to their music but I'm not that big of a fan" is the type of response I'd expect, for example. The GOP has had it out for Iran for a long time. One of the first things I read when Trump won the election and started building his admin, was that they were all very anti-iran, some not just anti-iran but overtly looking for a way to justify a war. I told my friends and wife early on that the thing to watch for was starting a war with Iran. Hell, we've been in a proxy war with them via Yemen/Saudi Arabia for years, it's not exactly a stretch to predict this. Trump's the perfect person for them to manipulate, because he had his number one goal (it seems) to be to dismantle anything Obama did just to spite Obama, one of which was the Iran nuclear deal. Given what we know about Trump's intellect, I can't imagine it was hard for someone like Bolton to slow-play that from spiting Obama to being on the cusp of war with them. Much like Bush was the perfect person to manipulate with the invasion of Iraq. It wasn't a tough sell to say Saddam was a cruel dictator that was openly courting Bin Laden, and tie that to justification for invading. 9/11 was still recent in everyone's minds. Convincing him to go in with little to no plan was probably not hard. Now the news from the US is that they're determining an appropriate response and putting together support for their claim that the drone was over international waters. NPR humorously ran with the idea this morning that it could lead to sanctions, but my bet is on a missile strike. I'm willing to bet the only thing that's keeping us from striking iran are military generals that are actually in-tune with what it means to send young men and women into a combat zone to potentially die, or come back with devastating injuries (even if just mental.) Until we have a competent president with competent national security advisers, I think that's the only thing keeping us from going to a war with someone. PS: Houthies launched rockets in Saudi Arabia about the same time Iran shot down the drone. Coincidence? Maybe. Maybe not.

    Presidential Election 2020 - ManChild vs Adult

    People that sympathize with that view are voting for Trump no matter who the Dems nominate. Everyone else, well, doesn't hold those views.

    We were normal then. This is era of Trump. Where every racist, sexist,homophobe,bigot, etc.. Are now out in the open. They have the President agreeing ir at least sympathizing with their view. Pete gets it, you will hear cries of the apocalypse is now upon us and it will work. They are still to many Americans who will never vote for a gay man or woman. I say we are still a decade away. By then enough people with those views will gave died off.
  8. At some point the Dems will have to let go of their aspirations to be career public officials and just call things for what they are.

    People were talking about Obama after that 2004 DNC speech as a future president. Mayor Pete hasn't had that moment yet.

    Presidential Election 2020 - ManChild vs Adult

    Do you think anyone in, say, 2006, would have believed a black man named Barack Hussein Obama could win the presidency...
  11. Don't we have some concentration camps down south?
  12. Do actually think the reason Griffin was passed by in DC was Jay didn't like him? I suppose they didn't like Griffin in Cleveland and the rest of the league just didn't like Griffin so he sat home until Baltimore liked him as a backup but since Baltimore drafted the kid from Penn State maybe Griffin is going to be looking for another stop this summer. I think your rush on the field and draft a new guy if he isn't lightening in a bottle coming out of the blocks approach is crazy and I hope the Skins have more sense.

    In the era of Trump, you really think a gay man could win the presidency? I don't. Mayor Pete could win the nomination but he would lose the general.

    He has no policies. He is a poor man's Obama.
  15. We have a Concentration Camp on the southern border and Dems are scared to call for hearings on impeachment. This country is so finished.

    Trump and his cabinet/buffoonery- Get your bunkers ready!

    Video won't load, what is the announcement?

    Presidential Election 2020 - ManChild vs Adult

    yeah but those seem more like just goals than actual policies. I don't think he has released any true policy proposals of his own the way Warren, Beto, Sanders, Harris, Booker etc have. I like him but I'm starting to need to see more substance in his ideas.
  18. That doesnt help their case... You're talking about the same people who eat pizza with knife and fork, and love mayonaise on EVERYTHING

    How's the Redskins Roster shaping up?

    I'm guessing he beefed up to take on blocks better, then realized he was getting roasted in coverage. Biggest issue in the run game wasn't our LB's ability to shed blocks. But a big issue against the pass was surely LB's out of position or lacking wheels.

    Has anyone watched much of Grant Williams from Tennessee? I saw him in the tourney, but not much beyond that. I was looking at this stats and they jump out as being pretty great: http://www.tankathon.com/players/grant-williams What's wrong with him? He's being projected to be a second round pick. Wondering if he might not be a good target if we buy a second round pick. This guy also stands out as having really good stats for someone being put in the second round in a lot of mock drafts: http://www.tankathon.com/players/chuma-okeke

    He's gotta reasonable issues page up. https://peteforamerica.com/issues/ Nothing outrageous for a Democratic candidate in 2019 (Medicare for all that want it).
