    Trump Foreign Policy

    From everything I have read Mexico doesn't even have a National Guard yet. This force was just created in February and they have 1,500 being trained right now. The US trying to get them to add 6,000 to their southern border in 4-6 weeks seems insane.

    Milto vs Martinez Year 2 Improvement

    Here's a 2017 preview for UCF, I think you are overestimating what they had going into the season. https://www.sbnation.com/college-football/2017/4/25/15400678/central-florida-football-2017-preview-schedule-roster

    The Republican Utopia

    More interesting supreme court nomination stuff: The most recent president to fill a Supreme Court vacancy during an election year is Ronald Reagan. In 1988, the Democratically-controlled Senate unanimously confirmed Reagan’s nominee to the Court, Anthony Kennedy. The 13 presidents who have filled Supreme Court vacancies during a presidential election year are: George Washington (1796, Justice Samuel Chase and Chief Justice Oliver Elsworth) Thomas Jefferson (1804, Justice William Johnson) Andrew Jackson (1836, Justice Philip Barbour and Chief Justice Roger Taney) Abraham Lincoln (1864, Chief Justice Salmon Chase) Ulysses S. Grant (1872, Justice Ward Hunt) Rutherford Hayes (1880, Justice William Woods) Grover Cleveland (1888, Justice Lucius Lamar and Chief Justice Melville Fuller) Benjamin Harrison (1892, Justice George Shiras, Jr.) William Taft (1912, Justice Mahlon Pitney) Woodrow Wilson (1916, Justices Louis Brandeis and John Clarke) Herbert Hoover (1932, Justice Benjamin Cardozo) Franklin D. Roosevelt (1940, Justice Frank Murphy) Ronald Reagan (1988, Justice Anthony Kennedy)

    The Republican Utopia

    This is quite interesting: Since 1955, every Supreme Court nominee confirmed during a period of divided government has been nominated by a Republican president and confirmed by a Democratic Senate. That accounts for 11 nominees in total: Justice Clarence Thomas (George H. W. Bush, 1991) Justice David Souter (George H. W. Bush, 1990) Justice Anthony Kennedy (Ronald Reagan, 1988) Justice John Paul Stevens (Gerald Ford, 1975) Justice William Rehnquist (Richard Nixon, 1971) Justice Lewis Powell (Richard Nixon, 1971) Justice Harry Blackmun (Richard Nixon, 1970) Chief Justice Warren Burger (Richard Nixon, 1969) Justice Charles Whitaker (Dwight Eisenhower, 1957) Justice William Brennan (Dwight Eisenhower, 1957) Justice John Marshall Harlan (Dwight Eisenhower, 1955)

    I read it that he is only saying that Democrats have nominated a justice during an election year.

    They have because it was a normal thing to do before McConnell wouldn't allow it in 2016.

    Potential Transfers

    This also makes it pretty clear that the deadline is May 29th until the NBA and NBPA changes their rules. https://ncaaorg.s3.amazonaws.com/enforcement/2019ENF_NBAMemo.pdf Pg. 13 #3 - A student-athlete who wishes to remove his name from the NBA Draft AND maintain NCAA eligibility must submit a written statement to the NBA by 11:59 p.m. Eastern time, May 29, 2019.

    Potential Transfers

    Based on what I can find this isn't true yet. https://www.ncaa.org/about/flexibility-going-pro-and-getting-degree NBA draft flexibility College basketball players who request an Undergraduate Advisory Committee evaluation, participate in the NBA combine and aren’t drafted can return to school as long as they notify their athletics director of their intent by 5 p.m. the Monday after the draft. This change is effective if/when the NBA and NBPA make an expected rule change, which would make undrafted student-athletes who return to college after the draft ineligible for the NBA until the end of the next college basketball season.

    Racism - It's a real thing.

    But also some people are racist white supremacists?

    Not only included in the census, but shouldn't the parents get tax credits for them as well?

    Facebook & Instagram ban extremist accounts

    But why would the size of the platform make any difference in whether they can remove certain users for violating the terms of service? Where is the cutoff from when the platform gets to 'that size'?

    Facebook & Instagram ban extremist accounts

    What if a billionaire bought up facebook and shut it down and killed public discourse for-EVER!
  14. Glad that's all done. This is how I talk to my children when they argue with each other and I have to try and mediate.
