    The Democrat Utopia

    It's a surprise any of her controversies are news tbh. Jews are the most invisible oppressed/minority people group out there, and in the left's oppression olympics they're often forgotten about and lumped in with 'white privilege'. On the other hand, being muslim is one of the biggest oppression cards you can play.

    Maurice Washington Faces Charges

    I don't have an opinion on what should happen to him legally or in regards to team punishment, I just personally don't see any gross moral failing on his part given what I know. I do think, in general though, that punitive measures are not nearly as effective towards mistakes as rehabilitative ones are.

    Maurice Washington Faces Charges

    Damn. If I was a kid in love with a girl who broke my heart, then got sent a video of her giving somebody else in school a blowjob, then she tried to reach out and be nice to me, I can't imagine I wouldn't have tried to make her feel the way I did.

    Maurice Washington Faces Charges

    Minors film and take photos of and send each other sexually explicit content of themselves or their peers ALL the time. How would you assess their behavior? Monstrous? Immoral? 16 year old kids acting like 16 year old kids and being interested in other 16 year old kids? In one realistic scenario MoWa being just over 18 doesn't magically remove him from the childish and immature and normal situation and context of heartbreak and hurt and living in a 2018 teenage digital media reality from two years prior that's still fresh and impactful. If we want to stick to legal definitions over half of teenagers are in possession of child porn. Which is illegal and could be prosecuted. Some states even have laws against simply viewing child porn, even if you're a minor. Should 15 year old girls be criminally prosecuted for sending their boyfriends nudes or viewing dick picks some idiot at their school sent them? https://criminal.findlaw.com/criminal-charges/child-pornography-and-selfies--what-you-need-to-know.html
  8. The current floor is great, except the wood is way too nasty of a tint. Gotta get more of a desaturated blonde color that compliments our scarlet - the color of the wood is harsh and ugly imo.

    Maurice Washington Faces Charges

    y'all know that teenagers these days send and receive sexually explicit photos/videos/language all the time, right? Especially women receiving dick pics. It's probably morally and ethically wrong and in poor taste, but it's also extremely normal. So a 15-16 year old kid dates a girl, gets his heart broken, then gets sent a widely circulated video of (to his knowledge) her having sex with another guy. Then gets a text from her as an 18 year old, still jilted and emotional, and sends it back to her out of hurt and anger? Wow. What a monster. Off with his head, imo. Maybe this can help contextualize for all you virtue warriors. When I was a sophomore and my date to homecoming who I was in love with left the dance early with another guy and had sex with him. I was devastated. She was talking to me over MSN Messenger a few days later and wasn't sure that I knew about it. So she tried to beat around it and play coy and compliment me. So, via type, I said something along the lines of, "Yeah, thanks, although I'm not nearly as cool as someone that would ditch their date to a dance to go have sex with someone else." Of course I wanted to make her hurt, because I was hurt by her. It's not a 100% parallel but functionally this is the same thing. Or maybe not functionally, but as a matter of moral, ethic, and intent, it's the same. Difference being that kids in that situation now live their lives on smart phones in their pockets and have access to anything and everything and are wildly reckless with what they put out there. That's not low character, that's just childhood immaturity and emotion. What would this have looked like? Monday morning press conference, Frost gets asked about Northwestern game plan, answers, then says, "oh btw, just so y'all know, california police are requesting to interview Maurice Washington in relation to a potential crime committed maybe by him or by other people but there have been no charges filed and we can't really tell you the details."

    Green New Deal

    as is typical on HB and across the internet and discourse in general, we completely ignore the actual source in favor of continuing our sport of disagreement which is way more fun. Per the actual literature, it all sounds mostly vague and ideological. Which makes it...harmless at worst? This part gives me pause though: First off, I guess I'm not seeing the connection to these things and the environment. Second, equity is not the same thing as equality. Maybe they are working with different definitions than I am but equity seems more like pure bona fide socialism where we all make and receive the same. Maybe I'm reading it wrong.

    Porn

    Aside from the very large issue of sexual exploitation in the porn industry as a business, one health cost of the proliferation of pornography is erectile dysfunction. Porn creates neural pathways and rewards your behavior with dopamine hits, which leads to unrealistic expectations of real world sexual encounters, which leads to...basically all sorts of unfavorable trends. It's a supernormal stimulus. Look up how supernormal stimuli work in experiments with animals as examples and come up with your own ideas on whether or not you imagine it'd be a net good or bad. https://www.webmd.com/sex/news/20170512/study-sees-link-between-porn-and-sexual-dysfunction#1 I'm on bad wifi and can't pull up any studies related, but I'd imagine it also has links to increases in sexual addiction in general. It's engineered to be an addicting 'substance' or habit. Here's a good TED Talk on it (i think this is the right one I'm thinking of but again, internet is garbage and I can't get it to load): Here's two more studies: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/27527226 https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/21259151 All of those psychological/sociological/relational issues and dangers aside, the issue of abuse and exploitation of women is a huge one. There's a huge link between legitimate sex trafficking and the porn industry, and even outside of that there's all sorts of degrees of informal pressure and trapping of women which is essentially the same thing as sex trafficking.
  12. I don't think you're technically correct either If I recall correctly, Title IX does not require equal opportunity for men and women. It requires proportionately equal opportunity based on the demographics of the student body. If the student body was 90% male, then the amount of student athletes could also be 90% male. Where did you learn how to talk?

    Your Most Fun Time At A Huskers Game

    2013 I won a VIP ticket package for the Northwestern game. The university paid for two nights at the Holiday Inn in the Haymarket, and me and my buddy started the day golfing 9 holes, then got to the stadium and got a tour of the locker room and weight room, met and hung out with Suh, and were on the field in the corner that Westerkamp caught the Hail Mary closest to. It was a wild day.

    The Democrat Utopia

    I had responses to a lot of things but then I saw I was 4 pages behind (hard to keep up on the road), but I just wanted to throw one thing in Someone said somebody like Jeff Bezos who worked their way up is the exception. It's not. According to Forbes, 69% of billionaires in America created their own fortunes. Now being 'self made' is subjective, but Forbes has a cool sliding scale of self-made-ness, from 1 to 10 depending on where billionaires started out. https://www.forbes.com/sites/afontevecchia/2014/10/02/the-new-forbes-400-self-made-score-from-silver-spooners-to-boostrappers/#15e3e1612aff It also shows that America is becoming far more meritocratic over time. 25 years ago, less than half billionaires worked their way into being rich. So, with all the valid critiques of capitalism and important calls for accountability and fairness on behalf of the rich and powerful, it's still good to keep perspective that we've been getting better and better and better. I don't have the numbers for it, but I would also imagine that America dramatically leads the way globally in giving potential and inspiring possibility to people who come from little or no means towards improving their lot in the world. We're a country founded on and perpetuated by an unrealistic fantasy for greatness, after all. Which is the best thing about us. And also sometimes the worst. There are other countries with less poverty, more equality, and so on - but a lot of the time those countries have traded a spirit of innovation and risk taking and progress for that security and safety.
