  1. But the perception and stereotype remain, whether right or wrong. Trev knows this and it will be an element to be mindful of if we're in that position at the end of 2022.
  2. 100% this. You read the mom's quotes in that news article and you know immediately what type of parent that is, and it isn't one that you would give the benefit of the doubt to in a situation like this. Come on, we all know that mom. Interested to see more factual details come out.
  3. If this staff pulls a similar thing to Solich's 2003 staff, the AD will be very aware of how bad the optics would be if they got the can after. If Frost wins 7 games he's safe. He's had the ability to win 7 every year he's been here, even with less talented and put together rosters.
  4. Obviously not the worst city if there's that many homeless people. Homeless people go to the good cities, they wouldn't go be homeless in a s#!thole
  5. People are going to LOSE it when they find out they can add a pound sign before a word to make it categorized and searchable as a "hash tag"
  6. Why have a salary cap? Why have max contracts?
  7. I think he's talking more about the politicians and their policies. Take Obamacare for instance. That was essentially a Republican idea in the 90's, then with the right going whacko and trying to provide something centrist policy-wise, it's actually pretty right-wing and still was called socialism.
  8. I'm sure a receptionist just wrote down 'Mike from OSU is interested" and there was a classic miscommunication.
  9. He's saying if your strategy is to be firmly in the median/average between the two parties, and one party starts shifting the overton window while the other stays still, then the third way/centrist has to start moving that way too to maintain being in the middle. So if the left side is at -50% and the right side is at 50%, the centrists try to stay at 0. But if the left side stays at -50% and the right side goes up to 100%, now the centrists are shifting to be 25% to the right.
  10. I'm fuzzy on the timeline but was the vaccine only available to people classified in certain at-risk categories at that time or was it available to everyone? Either way, the tweet is dumb and misleading and shouldn't be up.
  11. These new call of duty games are insane
  12. It's a complicated game but they're certainly not putting their best foot forward and constantly shooting themselves in the foot by A) not being willing to be louder and more pissed off about issues and B ) trying to be everything to everybody (except somehow some bases that they could make a dent in but choose not to even try for).
  13. You don't even need to stoop down nearly as low as the Republican Outrage Machine™‬ to do so much better in this regard if you're the Democratic party. Let's take one easy example. Veterans. In isolated environments dems have good talking points about helping veterans, but so does the GOP. So what do you do? You can lie and spread misinformation everywhere, or you can just get better at telling simple truths and telling them loudly. "The GOP does not support veterans. Veterans, every chance they get republican politicians vote against your health and safety. We're trying to make sure you're set up for a good life after you serve this country but these people are making it impossible. Every time we try to extend your health coverage they try and block it. We have a bill ready to guarantee you are protected, but they keep trying to stop us from getting it through and stopping you from being able to be healthy."
  14. Enacting would be great, but that's not even what we're talking about here. This convo started with knapplc saying "voters are tired of Democrats sitting on their hands", and a tweet expressing that voters need to see fight and conviction. This is about the marketing and visibility game. The Democrats are constantly losing the messaging game, which is one cog in the machine that leads to their awful election results. One guaranteed way to make sure you won't accomplish something is if you don't even try. Reframe the narrative. Put things to votes so you can point to people voting against it. Come up with new talking points. Fill the media with the benefits and the messaging of your goal. Create the impression that you are trying like hell to actually get this done and the people not on board are the ones standing in the way of voters having their student loans forgiven or better access to healthcare or whatever, instead of accepting defeat in the public eye by either ignoring or being weeks late in addressing the misinformation and spin from your opponents. Progressive folks want to see some actual teeth to progressive politics.
  15. Yeah and they don't do jack s#!t in regards to those positions.
  16. Not simping for bipartisanship when there's none to be found and actually start working on things that are supported by a majority of Americans and that they promised, and being loud about the opposition in the way when they can't get them through, for starters.
  17. Who's she? Dark horse candidate!
  18. Is there something inherently wrong with this outside of finding it annoying and try hard?
  19. The first definition doesn't inherently imply violence either.
  20. Maybe that'd be easier to do if there weren't years of evidence of Trump encouraging or failing to discourage violence at rallies and on social media. "these THUGS are dishonoring the memory of George Floyd and I won't let that happen... when the looting starts, the shooting starts" "When you see these thugs being thrown into the back of a paddy wagon, you just seen them thrown in, rough. I said, 'Please don't be too nice. When you guys put somebody in the car and you're protecting their head you know, the way you put their hand over [their head], like, 'Don't hit their head and they've just killed somebody, don't hit their head.' I said, 'You can take the hand away, OK?' "Any guy that can do a body slam, he is my type!" - in reference to a politician who bodyslammed a reporter for no reason "If you see somebody getting ready to throw a tomato, knock the crap out of them, would you? Seriously, OK? Just knock the hell ... I promise you I will pay for the legal fees. I promise, I promise," "He's walking out with big high-fives, smiling, laughing," Trump said. "I'd like to punch him in the face, I'll tell you." "Get him out," he said of a protester. "Try not to hurt him. If you do, I'll defend you in court. Don't worry about it." "See the first group I was nice, 'oh take your time'. The second group I was pretty nice. The third group I'll be a little more violent and the fourth group I'll say 'get the hell out of here" he was a guy who was swinging, very loud and started swinging at the audience and the audience swung back and I thought it was very, very appropriate.” “He was swinging, he was hitting people and the audience hit back and that’s what we need,” "I love the old days, you know what they used to do to guys like that when they were in a place like this? They’d be carried out in a stretcher, folks. Oh, it’s true.” For benefit of the doubt to work you kind of need some doubt.
  21. So basically Elon Musk wants to run twitter the exact same way it is now, with nebulous censorship for rule violating posts that include suspensions, deleting tweets, and shadowbanning tweets/accounts by hiding them in the algorithms, but the only difference is he doesn't believe in permanent bans. Wow what a victory for free speech you guys this is incredible we're all going to be very happy with this new approach.
  22. And minors I still have scars from detassling.
  23. #2 is Interstellar, and #3 is Fight Club. Good work on Hot Rod #ifyouknowyouknow
