  1. I think another thing that is to consider not trying to get Russia back involved in a G7 summit. Inviting a country who actively was proxy killing your soldiers to come visit and meet with allies seems willfully ignorant at best, treasonous at worst.
  2. I really miss Jon Stewart. Sure he was a comedian who attacked the right far more than the left. But he was also a thinker. Someone who had a good mind and understood humanity. It seems like lots of these satirists were great thinkers. He makes a great point about how people who have experienced tragedy have a humility about them. To understand and empathize with others is something we should want in a leader. Off the top of my head, I can't think of any random tragedy that Trump has had to endure. While that is a great thing for him personally, it has handicapped his personality.
  3. I'm not a fan of Trump, but in what way is this bad? People getting back to work or 401k's recovering is a good thing for the country. I've never understood the whole "nose despite your face" mentality. Root for America as a whole to succeed. Not everyone's voting decisions are tied to those two metrics.
  4. I'm assuming you are referring to Flynn and his charges for lying to the FBI. What part of Flynn's false testimony isn't relevant to what the FBI was questioning him about? A perjury trap is usually acceptable so long as the subject is being questioned about a relevant topic. If it wasn't acceptable practice, it would by default, condone perjury. That's why "Pleading the 5th" is a protected right. He didn't need to lie, he chose to, then admitted to doing it when he plead guilty to it.
  5. This is something that Fleck has been after for so long. He as coveted a kid from Nebraska from day one on the campus at Minnesota. His personality is so grating outside of his program. You just hate to see him get a win with this one.
  6. Get this guy a schollie. For someone to be able to make that big of a leap, he's got to have some serious explosiveness. Someone check his 40 time and standing broad jump numbers.
  7. I don't know why, but whenever I think about Trump "Reopening" the economy, I get a Michael Scott bankruptcy declaration vibe. Like He's just going to come on TV one day and announce we are back open. Like "There, I said it so now it's back on".
  8. Hey man, in 2009 I really liked Call of Duty. It was made by Activision (ATVI). Had some savings I wanted to play with. My wife was pissed at me for playing video games and investing in them. Something along the same critique "Just because you like the video game doesn't mean it's good investment. No matter how many copies they sell of that stupid game." Joke was on her. Sold it for just over a 500% gain thanks to their micro transaction business model. Then she said it was "our money". Joke's on me.
  9. This seems to be an apt description. A lot of people making the Tom Delonge "WTF" face.
  10. As a parent with a child who has a lifelong illness, I worry about the protections put into place with the ACA/Obamacare for pre-existing conditions. Trump has tried hard to eliminate those protections. When he mentioned his accomplishments in regards to health care, I know from my watching this topic intently, he was lying. Actions>Words.
  11. I feel like this belongs in r/ducttapecantfixthat.
  12. I heard once that a trial lawyer should never ask a question he doesn't already know the answer to. If the senate pushes for a closed door portion of questioning, and it gets through voting, then I would guess the lawyers for the defense don't want the answers and video of testimony released. Statements of what was said during the testimony aren't as compelling as live answers from the direct source. Time will tell.
  13. Frost brought up the Fisher rumor in his presser just a few minutes ago. Said that he was on the phone with Jaiden while he was away from the table and also texting him while he was sitting there. Kind of cool if you watched the video. You could tell he was deflated during the drama and then once Frost and Fisher eased his mind, he was so relaxed and happy.
  14. If Chris Stock was just stirring stuff up, that's pretty s@!ty.
  15. Didn't Hoiberg have a pretty good track record with guys from JUCO and transfers? I'll trust him in this one.
  16. Found some interesting quotes for Graham. As someone who was a proud down the ticket Republican voter a few years ago, it's frustrating to see what the 'R's have turned into. Anyway, on to the quotes: -“The day Richard Nixon failed to answer that subpoena is the day he was subject to impeachment because he took the power from Congress over the impeachment process away from Congress, and he became the judge and jury." -"You don't even have to be convicted of a crime to lose your job in this constitutional republic if this body determines that your conduct as a public official is clearly out of bounds in your role. Impeachment is not about punishment. Impeachment is about cleansing the office. Impeachment is restoring honor and integrity to the office."
  17. Which one were you right on? If you don't want to say publicly that's fine. Or dm. Or not.
  18. That's back when we were at 50 posts a page. I don't even want to know how many pages it is now. I remember how let down I was only to be trolled by him on the field throwing the bones against us.
  19. Not that I'm checking SUPER close, but dude's a Ken doll... and those hands do seem small.
  20. Why do I feel like his tweet is ingenuous and is only meant to rile up a certain portion of the population? The people who don't understand how the impeachment process works. Or how any trial works for that mater. Some one should show Don that video of those lawyers who rap about not saying anything. It's super cheesy but applicable.
