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

    Do you understand political reality? Even if the Obama administration had pushed to leave troops in place (which they didn't, we can all also agree on that) the Iraqi parliament was not going to accept the agreement.

    What's your house worth? https://graphics8.nytimes.com/packages/pdf/world/20081119_SOFA_FINAL_AGREED_TEXT.pdf Article 24 Withdrawal of the United States Forces from Iraq Recognizing the performance and increasing capacity of the Iraqi Security Forces, the assumption of full security responsibility by those Forces, and based upon the strong relationship between the Parties, an agreement on the following has been reached: 1. All the United States Forces shall withdraw from all Iraqi territory no later than December 31, 2011. We can all agree that the initial agreement was to remove all troops, right? It says so right there. https://www.politifact.com/truth-o-meter/statements/2015/may/18/jeb-bush/obama-refused-sign-plan-place-leave-10000-troops-i/ I think I see where you get confused. Jeb Bush claimed that there was a deal in place for the US to leave 10,000 troops in Iraq. Obama thought about trying to leave troops in place, but decided against it. But even if he had made the offer, the chances of Iraq approving it were nonexistent. So you're blaming him for failing to do something that he realistically could not do.

    Game Day Thread - Pats at Redskins

    Colt McCoy is not the answer, unless the question is "What quarterback will not win this game for us?"

    All fair points, but would you rather be up 10 or down 10?

    I can't imagine a realistic better start for this team. Maybe it's low expectations, but wow!
  8. The randomness in hockey is hard to overstate. The puck bouncing over a stick or settling perfectly can be the difference in a game, in a series. Skill and gameplan matter, but they don't determine outcomes. How else do you explain a blowout each, while the rest of the games were hard fought and close (empty netters aside). Last year, everything broke right and we won it all. I just hope it happens again in my lifetime.

    I wonder if intentionally walking him every at bat, like the Cubs did, would mess with his mind again. I'd rather that than him getting any kind of hit today.

    You made a specific claim, that over half of the country support Trump. That claim is wrong. If it didn't matter, why did you make it? And why can't you admit you were wrong, rather than retreating to "It doesn't matter, the point still holds". Facts do matter. If someone said Trump had a 10 percent approval rating, I'd correct them as well, but no one other than you is presenting false information right now in this thread. Get your facts straight before you make a claim.

    What all trades? Edit: Seriously though, this administration is a nightmare.
