  1. Big positive. A one percent deficit in SOUTH CAROLINA suggests to me that EVEN places where the rot is deep can be saved. It also suggests that a landslide for Biden is within reach, which I think in the end is going to be necessary if we're gonna have any chance of Trump voluntarily conceding defeat.
  2. Im a dick sometimes, yes. But I usually apologize when I realize Ive gone overboard. If I dont apologize, then youre the dick lol.
  3. Probably, but I think sometimes choice words have their place. In the end, you agreed with me, you just didnt like the person saying it (me). Which is the intended affect. I dont want you to like having to fight dirty, and I want you to associate people who call for this with a negative feeling -- for later, after the victory, so that we remember to re-set the atmosphere to more civil conditions. But, thats later. The first step to fighting dirty, is to realize that you're getting dirty. Youre not supposed to like it, but you gotta recognize it. Remember the distaste, once you achieve v
  4. Why not? I dunno whats considered so 'holy' about the number 9. Or any number, for that matter. I mean, at some point, too judges is just going to be inefficient, and guess what, we can reduce that number if that happens. Nothing has to be set in stone, the only constant in this world is change.
  5. Its not keyboard jockey ****. Thats loser talk. Republicans are literally preparing for war. Sending 17 year old kids out to shoot demonstrators, and then making him a hero means they are preparing for war. But thats not even what I was really getting at, I was getting at level of seriousness/preparedness for whats coming. Its serious. Save me the moral high-ground B.S., lemme guess you're a twenty something political science major, pontificating on what the world should be like. I recognize that. I used to be that. But the world isnt what we want it to be, and sometimes we gotta do t
  6. Thank you Jumbo, your last line appropriately sums up what Im trying to say. I think at this point, the Republicans have clearly brought this down to the sewer level, so its time get dirty and fight. Thats all Im trying to say, less eloquently than you.
  7. Of course. This shouldnt even be a threat, it should be given that theyre gonna expand the court to whatever number is politically suitable. Seriously enough with the b.s., i aint saying politics havent always been in the sewer, but after McConnel's stewardship, Democrats really need to grow up and start playing for keeps, like the Republicans. Thats the whole point of my post. When the Democrats come in, they should do ever legal thing they can think of to put the G.O.P. into the ground for good. And some illegal things too. **** it, we're already there, its too late to put the cat ba
  8. Moral compass? Have you been watching for the last.. I dunno.. 40 years? Tired of watching the Democrats show up ready for a fight, while Republicans show up ready for war. Aint no morals in war, kid. By any means, necessary. Hopefully, the more moral side will win. But lets recognize the moral b.s. for what it is, when it comes to politics.
  9. What if Biden wins the presidency, but the Republicans manage to hold on to a slim majority in the Senate? I see this as a very possible, if not probably outcome. So does Mitch. Soo, all the warnings about stacking Judiciary are pretty much meaningless anyways. To be quite honest with you, Im not really sure what Democrats are complaining about. Republicans were under no Constitutional obligation to confirm Garland, and they are under no obligation to wait now. As matter of fact, why would they? Because what? They promised? Grow the **** up.
  10. This can be a very frustrating fanbase to deal with. I think anyone who tries to evaluate Haskins fairly up to this point, has consistently said the same things, and nothing has changed since the beginning. To say he has shown no flashes is ridiculous -- the last two games of last year, he showed flashes How can we already forget that, it was only two games ago in the Haskins timeline??? 2 starts, 1 mediocre, and 1 bad, and we've already forgotten what was an elite level worth of 2 games? I mean come on, lets try to keep a vaguely even keel. I know both me and vols
  11. Absolutely love the honesty out of our new coach, and frankly he's actually being optimistic. Right now, this OL is so bad, it makes it difficult to even evaluate other groups on the offense. Its difficult to evaluate DH, makes it difficult to evaluate the WR's, its difficult to evaluate the RB's, and its even difficult to evaluate the TE's other than in their blocking duties. Until we get about two or three more starting-caliber linemen in here, its gonna be pretty difficult to get a real feel for what this offense can do, and thats gonna take at least one more off-season to be quite hones
  12. Cant really control riots, if the anger is enough, any one riot thats put down will lead to an angrier riot the next. Lets not go down the Syria path. We have to prevent them from happening in the first place. Thats whole point of a riot. Its to give powers-that-be, a warning that they are not really as in-control as they think they are. When enough portions of the citizenry would rather just burn the mother****er down then continue with the status quo, the powers-that-be are supposed to get the signal that "they arent asking for change anymore", or as Chapelle quoted, better listen to th
  13. Also like that we got a leader here guys. Didnt play well but found a way to get the win by making the plays that were there for him, when he had to. Im not going so far as to say clutch, but he was calm and collected in the drives that tied the game and the go ahead td score, and that filtered down to the rest of the players. I remember one play some WR was lined up on wrong side of field, DH corrected him audibly, still got the play off in time, and got a 1st down. Thats pretty good stuff guys. Now let the kid try to learn somn behind perhaps the worst OL in the league. If
  14. Maybe Trent Williams had a point when he said he didnt trust this team's medical staff, calling them incompetent and untrustworthy. Or maybe he was just a lazy pothead looking for an easy payday. Or maybe both.
  15. I think, finally, at long last, I can move on from Sean Taylor. Didnt think we would have ever see a generational type talent like that again, in a Washington uniform.
  16. I think people are gonna see what they want to see in DH's performance last night. Except for the outliers that say he was great or terrible yesterday, which anyone with two eyes can see were not appropriate adjectives. To me, Im a middle road kinda guy, I saw some things he needs to work on, I saw some things we can build off of. Most of all, I think we should temper our expectations this year. The bottom line is, we have a bad offensive line, and a young QB that realizes he has a bad offensive line. This could easily be disaster, most times that ends up in lots of sacks and
  17. Dude your reaching. Snyder has destroyed the fanbase. This graph is highly believable, and lines up with what we see with our own eyes, from how empty Fedex is when we play a small market team, to how its only full when is full of opposing team fans of a large-market team. Its so painfully obvious, that the only question I have, is why NFL owners dont appear to give a ****. Its affecting their bottom line. They should be jumping on the chance to get rid of this guy. And yet, instead, they make excuses for him. Just how many skeletons are these guys hiding. Is Dan's behavior really that
  18. Forget about those guys, we aint even got any depth behind the scrubs that we've hoisted into starting positions! We cant afford to lose anybody, especially our scrubs. If Christian goes down, Moses goes down, Martin goes down, what do we even have as an option to fill in for the guys who are 2nd-string caliber starters we have? We're one injury away from Shar Pourdanesh's son.
  19. its absolutely shocking when you see the O depth chart. Most teams can look at their depth charts, and they try to identify the holes or the pro-bowl caliber guys. With us, you're just struggling to find a starter, anywhere. Man. We're putting our young QB in situation where he gotta play like a legend just to get an average offense going.
  20. I had an idea. Some former member of this administration (ahem John Kelly) should drop a tell-all book right before the election. No need to lie, just give the full picture of D. Trump -- which naturally will be horrifying, because Trump is a grotesque person. And then promise to donate half of the proceeds to charities supporting the families of fallen soldiers. Boooyah, how like them apples?
  21. Hahaha. Joe Biden is terrible at everything, except for making logical arguments, and pointing out the idiocy of mine.
  22. Maybe Im missing it, but I was so sure that Kelly was going to respond to Trump's attacks today. I thought he was just waiting for the labor day weekend to be over, so that his response wouldnt be lost in the Friday-before-a-holiday news dump. I thought Kelly, especially on the heels of the "dead GIs are losers" controversy, knew he was positioned to land a possibly fatal blow to this godforsaken Trump era. He is in a position better than anyone, to truly expose the ugliness and ineptitude of this president. Trump accused of him of giving up, of not having the energy. Trump is parti
  23. While Im glad to see Trump getting hammered for his comment about soldiers, I know it wont change that much. And that is precisely why I have absolutely positively NO respect whatsoever left for Trump supporters. They really are about nothing. This guy has all but taken a giant **** on the graves of America's fallen soldiers, yet the same people that had a conniption when a footballer kneels in what is mistaken as an indirect protest against the military, dont even bat an eye. Its over. I cannot hold an ounce of respect for this people anymore. They must simply change their views, or be
  24. Im hoping John Kelly is preserving his response until after Labor Day, in order to have maximum impact (as opposed to responding on a Friday before a long-weekend, when people dont follow the news much). At this point, he owes it to this country to save it from for more years of this KGB-plant.
  25. Okay, its the 21st century, well into it, so we have the technology to place a sensor on the holster of cop's guns. Every time they draw their guns, the sensor should transmit a signal with time/place/officer information back to the police station. Then, cops should be required to submit a full report, explaining why they felt the need to draw their gun, and how this was in line with their training regarding threat assessment and force escalation. Cops hate paperwork, so if you demand a one page report, every single time -- I guarantee you cops will start thinking twice before drawing their
