  1. Why couldn't they have made these changes 25-30 damn years ago...
  2. I was in 5th grade in the mid 90s when I learned about our POW camps, when I read in horror that we had Japanese internment camps that cost those Japanese Americans all they had, when I read about the Cherokee trail of tears and the sand creek massacre, and that Martin Luther King was assainated because of his fight for Civil rights and of course there was Rosa Parks and the bus. It wasn't until 10th or 11th grade that I had to watch Mississippi Burning, and learned about the KKK, lynchings church bombings and more. When I learned about Matthew Sheppard and others. It wasn't until college that I learned about the economic and socio-economic outcomes these populations still struggle with as a result of the persecution they faced. I learned through first hand, eye witness experiences the treatment of Hispanic Americans, INS raids, the fear that illegals were stealing jobs and what the Hispanic people were really like. That wasn't a school subject yet. This stuff is taught in schools. But how much longer will it be if a guy like DeSantis takes over or Pillen goes the way of the Trump? First they outlawed talking about climate change by anyone with a government job, now CRT ( though no one screaming against it can accurately define it.) They are trying to ban/burn books. How long will Uncle Tom's cabin still be allowed in a school library or To Kill a Mockingbird??? When will a Child's Guide to Trump by Mike Huckabee replace all that? And I'll add one more, how idiotic do people have to be to lock arms and scream about illegals and vote those leading the hate into office when the ones leading the charge are profiting off of hiring those very same illegals they claim to hate. Looking at you Trump and Pillen voters...
  3. Yep thats why we all said the pledge every morning. Definitely not an echo there. Truth is schools have always been ground 0 for indoctrination just like the church. Some people see through that indoctrination and others a blinded by it. And thats true regardless of what is being taught.
  4. Well if Lsu wanted him at backer, I would bet we is going to be the new Domann, instead of Kolovaric
  5. God we, can't even be in the top 17 of running players off. This program is a catastrophe.
  6. This feels like going backwards and moving away from a common freaking sense national championship. A conference should be 2 divisions of 8 you play seven games against everyone in your division. If you win your division, you play in the conference championship from the winner of the other division. If you win the conference championship, you play for the regional title (consisting of 2 conferences.) If you win the regional title you go on to the National championship semi-final, if you win the semi final, you play for the national title. If my math is right, this would allow for 16 8 team divisions which comes out to 128 teams total. There are currently 130 Div. 1 football teams. Teams that fail to win their division can schedule 5 extra games against other teams that do not win their division or lose before the semi-final game. Then you have a true national champion in 11 games. Each team can play 11 games annually. But god forbid anything is ever done logically.
  7. Those poor dudes they could only buy 1 community. Cut their taxes, they need more!
  8. Ha... the Supreme Court is giving suburban women right back
  9. Touche- it took near total economic collapse of the Great Depression for them to embrace FDR and the New Deal. Of course, then they liked it so much they gave him 16 years of the presidency. - Hopefully people can open their eyes before we get to that level again.
  10. I've argued in other threads regarding the economy, open jobs, and low employment rate, that there are only two ways to find the employees to fill all these open jobs now that the Boomers are retiring out. The first is to make having more children more affordable for American families. That's clearly not going to happen. The second is to wrap your arms around immigration reform and get more people into the country, fast. Turns out I was wrong. They've found a third way. Restrict access to family planning services and products and then poor dumb kids will start having babies before college, have more kids, need low wage jobs just to scrape by, and refill the coffers of cheap uneducated labor for the rich to capitalize on. The wealthy will go to Canada or Europe to prevent their princesses from falling down that path. The funny thing is, all these kids will be born, to poor and middle-class families, and need welfare and other federal assistance to make ends meet (because dang it, no one should have to pay a living wage) and then all they do is complain about the welfare queens, the dirty uncared for kids, and the drain on resources they are even while capitalizing on their backs. It's sickening. Its the same way the wealthy (Pillen, Trump, etc) import illegal immigrants by the thousands so they can pay lower wages and then turn around and have the gall to tell the displaced American employee its the immigrants fault- what kills me is that people are dumb enough to buy it.
  11. So the league said - Oh crap, Nebraska is finally rotating to cross overs that aren't Ohio State, Michigan, and Penn State every year, like they've been looking forward to since we started screwing them with that schedule more than a decade ago. How do we throw them back under the bus and ensure they don't make a championship game for the next 20 years? Oh I know, let's use the excuse of reverting to 8 League games with three PERMANENT cross overs. We'll give them Ohio State, Penn State, and Michigan EVERY YEAR, FOREVER!!! Muah hahahahaha.
  12. The obsession with property taxes is fine. The tax structure is out of whack. What we need is someone who has the balls to say yes, we do need to cut property taxes significantly, but we still have critical needs we have to pay for. Therefore, we will counterbalance property taxes with increased income taxes on the richest Nebraskans to compensate. That, or we will turn our state into an energy exporter by providing significant tax cuts for farmers who install wind and solar installations, and then significantly taxing the sale of the electricity produced.
  13. Probably the best chance for Nebraska to land the number 1 recruit ever, and now it seems it wasn't really close at all... darn it. That said it doesn't seem like the Raiola family has loyalty to any particular school. Just stings with a legacy recruit.
  14. Yeah, giving rich people all the money always works out great for everyone! In fact, they should pay 0 taxes, and no minimum wage to either so they can really vacuum up all the wealth. Us poor schlubs should feel fortunate to even walk the earth with these welfare queens... I mean scions of enterprise who inherit, I mean pull themselves up by their bootstraps to be worth millions on the backs of our labor. This is always the best for everyone
  15. 1. Democrats hold themselves to a higher standard and are quick to turn on their own if it's politically expedient. Example: The Cuomos and Franken. 2. You are right in many states, Nebraska included, actions and policy do not matter at all as long as you have an R by your name. This is why I advocate for every willing dem/independent to re-register republican to run for office, vote, and primary out the wack jobs. Because of gerrymandering the country will only keep drifting right if they dont.
  16. Next up they get rid of all age limits for marriage. Got to get them girls pregnant, barefoot and in the kitchen as quickly as possible. Plus then the orange cheeto, Epstien, Gaetz and the rest can be absolved of their sex crimes.
  17. Except it don't. https://sacramento.newsreview.com/2019/10/21/wait-katie-johnson-actually-exists/ A California woman who accused Donald Trump of raping her a quarter-century ago when she was 13 has gone to ground, says her former attorney, deepening the mystery surrounding “Katie Johnson.” “Recent attempts to reach … her have revealed that she has disconnected her telephone number,” Evan Goldman, a New Jersey attorney who represented Johnson in late 2016, wrote in an email. “Katie Johnson” and “Jane Doe” are pseudonyms the woman used to sue Trump and convicted sex offender Jeffrey Epstein in California and New York federal courts three years ago, before Trump was elected president in 2016 and before authorities say Epstein hung himself in a jail cell in August while facing child sex trafficking charges. According to the filings, “Johnson” was an aspiring model in 1994 when, after a string of unsuccessful meetings with agencies in New York City, she was at a Port Authority bus terminal getting ready to make her cross-country trip back home. Instead, a woman told Johnson how she could make money and modeling connections attending parties. It was at these parties—allegedly featuring other underage girls and wealthy guests—that Johnson says she was forced to sexually gratify the future president on four occasions, each one escalating in its described level of depravity. After their supposed final encounter, in which Johnson claimed she begged Trump to no avail to wear a condom, the complaint states, “Trump grabbed his wallet and threw some money at” the plaintiff and suggested she get an abortion. The bombshell claims never gained as much traction as other Trump misconduct allegations, for several reasons. Johnson’s initial lawsuit, filed without an attorney, included a hinky phone number and unverifiable mailing address, and was swiftly dismissed in the Central District of California. Johnson abruptly withdrew her second lawsuit and canceled a press conference days before the election, citing fears for her safety. The sum total was that the press didn’t know what to make of Johnson or those surrounding her, and moved on to other controversies such as the Access Hollywood tape and the Stormy Daniels payoff. But since multiple women emerged this year with shockingly similar stories about how Epstein recruited and sexually enslaved them as young girls, some of the people who believed Johnson in 2016 say her claims should be reconsidered today. “Katie’s story mimics those that have come out in the past several months,” Goldman wrote. “She was very forthcoming and also a very reluctant person. She only decided to do something when she saw that there was a chance that Trump could become President.” The signature and pseudonym of a California woman who sued Donald Trump and Jeffrey Epstein in 2016. (Photo by Raheem Hosseini) Goldman and two other attorneys represented Johnson from Sept. 30 to Nov. 4, 2016. Before they represented her, Johnson’s first lawsuit was dismissed for failing to cite an actionable civil rights claim. It sought $100 million in damages and described in graphic detail allegations against both Trump and Epstein, a one-time financier accused of hosting underage sex parties for the obscenely rich. SN&R corresponded via text with a person who identified as “Katie Johnson” in May 2016 and recently traced the phone number to a Southern California esthetician. Goldman said he couldn’t reveal Johnson’s true identity, but stressed that she “is and was a real person.” “There were real threats which forced her to drop the law suit,” he added. On the day Johnson was supposed to participate in a press conference arranged by attorney Lisa Bloom, whom the attorneys hired to conduct their media outreach, Johnson’s car and cellphone were stolen, Goldman said. “This freaked her out and that is when she decided not to go through with it.” Bloom, the daughter of feminist civil rights attorney Gloria Allred, has come under fire recently for her behind-the-scenes work to discredit Harvey Weinstein’s accusers. As for Johnson, Goldman says he has no way of contacting her. The attorney didn’t respond to questions about whether a blurred-out video purporting to show Johnson being interviewed was of his one-time client. But SN&R obtained what appears to be a letter from a combative “never Trump” conservative who arranged for the video to be made. The June 30, 2017 letter from Illinois political donor Steve Baer is marked “confidential,” directed to then-Special Counsel Robert Mueller and copied to numerous others, including “select” media. In the 10-page document, which includes an unblurred image of Johnson from her video interview, Baer urges Mueller to investigate the claims of the pseudonymous “Katie Johnson,” writing that his group, Freedom Partners Trust V, while skeptical that the president colluded with the Russians or obstructed justice, does believe Johnson. “The current President of the United States raped a 13-year-old girl in 1994,” writes Baer, who has been credited with other aggressive email campaigns. Baer could not be reached for comment.
  18. So now, lets talk about this. 1) Do we know Trump was a close associate of Epstien - YEP 2) Do we know Esptein was a pedo - YEP 3) Do we know Esptein and Maxwell actively recruited for sex parities - YEP 4) Do we know that Trump and his legal team engaged in threatening behaviors to silence people - YEP 5) Do we know that Trump employs NDA's to ensure silence of victims and co-conspirators - YEP 6) Do we know that most normal people to don't have the funds to withstand an onslaught of Trump's legal team - YEP 7) Do we know that Trump frequently has tried to buy off people to keep them silent - YEP I don't tend to lend credence to salacious stories like these. But when you read the depositions, and recognize that it all fits Trump's repeatedly shown patterns. There is 95% chance this is truthful IMO.
  19. In late April 2016, rumors began to circulate online holding that Republican presidential Donald Trump had either been sued over, or arrested for, raping a teenaged girl. One of the earliest versions of the rumor was published on 2 May 2016 by the Winning Democrats web site, which reported that woman using the name Katie Johnson had named Trump and billionaire Jeffrey Epstein in a $100 million lawsuit, accusing them of having solicited sex acts from her at sex parties held at the Manhattan homes of Epstein and Trump back in 1994 (when Johnson was just 13 years old): Many aggregated reports cited a 28 April 2016 article that described the circumstances under which the lawsuit had been filed: A copy of the California lawsuit (filed on 26 April 2016) shared via the Scribd web site outlined the allegations, which included the accusation that Trump and Epstein had (over 20 years earlier) “sexually and physically” abused the then 13-year-old plaintiff and forced her “to engage in various perverted and depraved sex acts” — including being “forced to manually stimulate Defendant Trump with the use of her hand upon Defendant Trump’s erect penis until he reached sexual orgasm,” and being “forced to engage in an unnatural lesbian sex act with her fellow minor and sex slave, Maria Doe, age 12, for the sexual enjoyment of Defendant Trump” — after luring her to a “series of underage sex parties” by promising her “money and a modeling career”: According to RadarOnline’s initial reporting, the lawsuit filed in California on 26 April 2016 was dismissed over technical filing errors (the address listed in court documents was a foreclosed home that has been vacant since its owner died), with the plaintiff failing in her attempt to avoid incurring the cost of the litigation: For his part, Trump asserted that the charges were “not only categorically false, but disgusting at the highest level and clearly framed to solicit media attention or, perhaps, are simply politically motivated,” adding that “There is absolutely no merit to these allegations. Period.” On 20 June 2016, New York City-based blog Gothamist reported that the plaintiff had refiled a similar complaint in a New York State federal court: The online outlet that first reported the second filing in New York explained that the lawsuit might be allowed to proceed even though the statute of limitations for bringing suit has expired, because (according to plaintiff’s lawyer) the plaintiff lacked the “freedom of will to institute suit earlier in time” due to her having been threatened by Trump: A copy of the New York-based suit was also uploaded to Scribd, and in the second filing (which asked for no specific amount of monetary damages) the plaintiff was represented by Thomas Francis Meagher, a New Jersey patent lawyer who learned of her allegations via an article published on the GossipExtra web site advertising that she was “shopping for an attorney.” In a statement attached to her filing, the plaintiff (aka “Jane Doe”) asserted: The filing also included a statement from “Tiffany Doe” (i.e., the woman referenced in plaintiff’s statement above who brought her to the parties) attesting that: A video reportedly featuring “Katie Johnson” (her identity hidden through the use of facial pixillation, a long blonde wig, and an electronic voice distorter) appeared online, in which she graphically described giving Donald Trump a hand job and being raped by him: There is little doubt that Donald Trump knew Jeffrey Epstein, as Trump acknowledged in a 2002 New York magazine profile of Epstein: Epstein had been named in multiple similar lawsuits over the previous several years, served 13 months in jail, and was registered as a sex offender for life: As of now, all of the information about this lawsuit comes solely from the complaint filed by “Katie Johnson,” and no one has as yet located, identified, or interviewed her. She was scheduled to appear at a press conference on 2 November 2016 but didn’t show up, asserting that threats to her life kept her away. She reportedly dropped the lawsuit again on 4 November 2016 for the same reason.
  20. https://www.pbs.org/newshour/politics/assault-allegations-donald-trump-recapped So far: 16 women have accused Donald Trump of various forms of sexual assault, including one accusation of rape and another, in which the accuser has not used the word “rape” but whose description meets the legal definition of rape. This figure includes standing accusations from both before and after the release of the Access Hollywood tape on October 7, 2016. Four other women have publicly said Mr. Trump walked in on them and other pageant contestants while they were undressing. Buzzfeed reports another three women have confirmed the pageant stories but did not want their names used. The alleged incidents range from the early 1980s to 2013. Donald Trump has adamantly denied all of the stories and accuses the women of being political tools who were trying to undermine either his candidacy or presidency. SEXUAL ASSAULT ACCUSATIONS Here is what we know about the accusations of assault against Donald Trump, including the date of the alleged assault. These are standing allegations of assault that have not been disavowed by the alleged victim. Kristin Anderson – Early 1990s. Story in the Washington Post on October 14, 2016.

She claims she was repeatedly raped by Trump and Jeffery Epstein at Epstein’s New York City apartment in 1994, when she was 13 years old. A witness, also given a pseudonym — “Tiffany Doe” — said she recruited “Jane Doe” and others. Doe, using the name “Johnson,” gave an interview to the Daily Mail in which she said she did not know who Trump was at the time of the alleged attack but identified him later when she saw him on television. It is not known why she withdrew the lawsuit. She has not spoken publicly or withdrawn her rape allegation since then. Jessica Drake – 2006. Story made public at a news conference October 22, 2016.

  21. Yeah, I've posted it several times, with links and context. If you haven't read it yet. It's because you're intentionally trying not to. You can read the whole case brief online. Try Google. It works.
  22. Joe hasn't literally been sued and paid off a girl he statutory raped... that is such a worthless and lazy false equivalency its disgusting, and disgusting that you support those who engage in the act.
  23. Yeah but man, it hurts to thin about what could have been with Wandale, Toure, Manning, and Allen on the field at the same time.
  24. With NIL- why even have scholarships? Everyone is a walk-on, unlimited roster.
