  2. Actually, Trump has cancelled a bunch of them. One of my friend was in Guatemala working on an education and training program that had been really successful with an at risk indigenous population. Trump canceled the program and he lost his job all with 24 hours notice.

  6. This guy is hopefully a redskin for life. Even if he’s not a top 3, he has to be a top 5 LT in this league. Anybody remember when Chris Samuels retired and before we got Trent? Yeah that wasn’t fun. Not trying to go through that again, especially with a rookie QB potential starting or taking over at some point this season.

    Interesting article. But it’s mostly speculation... Keep in mind this is just someone’s opinion and not the findings of any investigative body, In fact, so far most of the official investigations have found that the captains state of mind was the exact opposite of what was portrayed in this article. Also while it is true that the captain had a simulation of flight that ended in the south india ocean, the FBI studied the track and the jist of their findings was that the track was different. Also, the plane turned toward planned emergency landing sites (and towards radar and military bases that (had there been competent people making those stations) could have easily tracked and intercepted a suspected hijacked plane. If the goal was to get lost in a suicide spiral going right over the south china sea where their is no radar would be more viable.

  8. Or maybe opportunity to not be murdered by cartels, or have their children recruited into the gangs at gun point? That might be a factor for fleeing your country as well.
  9. This appears to be a shared thought by a fair amount of people; why is he not considered top 3? Who’s in the top 3? Is it based solely on injuries? Im 100% on side keeping Trent into mid 30s, but open to arguments or video that shows Trent not moving at an elite level for his position. I watch zero film, but do isolate and watch Trent individually consistently, and replays of commentators going nuts about his ability. Not coming at ya with any crazy energy, just want to engage and hear what your thoughts are.

    Presidential Election 2020 - ManChild vs Adult

    The GOP has proven over the last decade that it is easier to lie and confuse the population about your opponent's policies, than have any actual policies of your own. Healthcare being a great example. As far as Biden goes, it will be interesting to see how the Democratic voter base reacts to his soft passive racism vs how the right-wing applauds and cheers on Trump's blatant racism.
  13. Most are coming for economic opportunity, we have programs to help those countries....about as effective as most govt programs.
  14. Just go ahead and give him the Cy Young Award now, and admit a mistake was made last year and he should be the only player to win it 4 years in a row.
  15. Also part of the reason there's so many people coming to the border now, is that other ways of applying for Asylum or getting visas have been taken away from them. It's also likely that the admin is doing things to deliberately increase the number and is going out of it's way not to alleviate the problem, so they that can keep complaining about it. And we know they had/have an admitted policy of holding the kids who come with parents hostage to punish the parents and have tricked parents into agreeing to be deported without their children or saying they'd be deported together and then doing otherwise.

    Hell, if you survive the initial impact, chances are you might drown just trying to get out of the wreckage. I know stats show you are more likely to die in a car wreck, but I think the mental block there is that in a car, with your hand on the wheel you always think in your head you have the power to change an outcome, where as in a plane, once you are past the point of no return, there is little to do but make peace with what is about to happen. If anyone wants to terrorize themselves, you can go on youtube and listen to recovered blackbox recordings from plane crashes.

    Where is the Outrage over Boeing 737-MAX?

    And that is a problem how? It is not my answer it is standard pilot op with runaway trim, reduce pressure on the surface and it moves easier.

    Xbox One Vs Ps4

    I miss Splinter Cell so much. Chaos Theory was so freaking good. Immediately nose-dived after Double Agent. Both versions of DA, by the way, were pretty good and worth experiencing. Then Conviction happened and completely threw out the gameplay mechanics that made the game so popular. No hiding of bodies, there's literally a "kill everybody in the room" button, and you can't even TRY to sneak around like you used to. Instead of carefully tilting the joystick forward to creap ever so slowly and silently towards your target, movement speed is binary; full speed or full stop. What the **** were they thinking there? Then whatever that other one was called thought it would be a good idea to replace the iconic Michael Ironside with some child and try to pass him off as a 50-year-old grizzled veteran. Sorry, but no, Sam Fisher was already getting to be "too old for this ****" back in Chaos Theory, but three games later he's found the fountain of youth and is younger than ever? Ugh. I didn't bother to spend enough time with the games post Double Agent to see if the story was still any good, but what I'd heard wasn't promising. I might have to go back for another playthrough of the only 4(ish) games in the series that count.
  19. The problem with the current strategy on immigration is that it is based on handling the situation after the fact, when desperate people are arriving at the border. If you truly want to reduce people from coming here (not the ones who can afford to go through the legal process, waiting years....or student visas etc etc.....I am referring to the people fleeing their countries out of desperation) then you need to put resources into studying and fixing or at least play a part in fixing the issues that cause these folks to want to flee in the first place. Much like the "war on drugs" did little to address the problem of why people were using in the first place (nor looked to help people get off the drugs) and simply looked for the easiest back end fix. You can stop as many people as you want from getting in, but the fact that they are still showing up in mass means you are failing on the actual problem(s). As a country I absolutely do think we have a right to control the flow of immigrants/immigration into our country, that is the right of a sovereign nation, but when you have guy like Trump who comes up with fear tactics and blatant racism in order to push his asinine policies it's no wonder that it pushes Democrats to the sidelines who actually want to address the same issues in good faith. I know we are supposed to believe all these folks are just showing up because gosh darn everyone loves America, but that simply isn't true. They are fleeing because they are scared to death to be where they are, and they likely don't view the countries they are passing through on the way here to be much safer. Also, for America/Americans to act like our foreign policy aka the drug wars haven't played a major part in a lot of the situations in central America is being downright naive or purposely ignorant.

    Frankly, one of my worst fears is a deep ocean crash, because even if you strike gold and survive impact, your reward is likely being eaten by a shark, or slowly dying if hunger and thirst on a flotation device. Not many worse ways to go in this world

    Where is the Outrage over Boeing 737-MAX?

    Or if you read the entire article smart ass, there are situations that might require both pilots to turn the crank, then what? God you are so ****ing insufferable... Think you have the answer to everything.
