    Incendiary topic titles

    I'm not trying to get all tin-foil hat conspiracy theory here or even necessarily suggest that it happened but I'm VERY skeptical that the government would tell us if votes had been changed by hackers, Russian or otherwise. Can you imagine if that was announced? If there was evidence of it occurring in one city why couldn't it happen elsewhere? How could we as citizens trust the outcomes of anything on that ballot?

    The Courts under Trump - Mega Thread

    Four thoughts about what I heard yesterday. 1. I didn't really believe his explanation about 'boofing' but kids are weird and come up with inside jokes all the time. 2. I didn't at all believe his devil's triangle explanation. I really wish someone would have asked for a couple rules of the supposed drinking game. 3. There's no way in hell that guy hasn't drank to excess in his college years. 4. His attacks on Democrats in his prepared statement really bothered me when it's supposed to be an apolitical position. Kavanaugh probably lied under oath yesterday and it's not going to matter because the R's are playing to win. A couple Senators and Reps will lose their seats this fall but that's just collateral damage for locking up a SC Justice for the next 30 years.

    We Suck "Megathread" All things Nebraska sucks

    It was 75 and sunny outside while there was a terrible game of football on the TV. I turned it off and took my older kid to the golf course for an hour and then took the younger one to the park. There are too many fun things to do on such a beautiful day that don't involve watching a bad game. I suppose that makes me a bad fan but if DONU wants four hours of my attention on the weekend they need to put out an entertaining product.

    That sworn declaration is quite a read, wow.I wish it had come from someone other than Avenatti but I guess he delivered. At this point Kavanaugh has to keep denying and fighting against this because he's got a lot more to lose than becoming a Supreme Court Justice.

    Offensive Line

    The play that sticks out to me was in the first quarter and Michigan got a sack while rushing like 3 guys. In the frame you could see all five NU o-lineman looking for someone to block. Total breakdown.

    The defense played pretty well today. Gave up 17 points and had 2 takeaways. They certainly played well enough to win the game.

    NFL Changes Nation Anthem Protocols

    Oh I'm not. It was a totally facetious comment about people at home sitting on their collective asses during the anthem while complaining that the players aren't standing.

    NFL Changes Nation Anthem Protocols

    A side benefit to them broadcasting the waving flag is that everyone at home would now have a flag to stand and respect during the anthem.

    Dems Rebuild

    How is teaching teenagers a trade at a tax payer funded high school any different than teaching them those same trades at a tax payer funded trade school? I guess they enter the workforce 12-24 months earlier but it's still 'free' education.

    The Way to Early 2020 Presidential Election

    I don't think they need to have 15 candidates during the primaries but I'm going to be pretty damned upset if we only get two options like the last time around.

    The Republican Utopia

    This photo is from October 20th, 2008 and it took less than a minute to google that info. I'm sure Weinstein was preying on women ten years ago but it's impossible to know if Rogan knew anything about it.

    Immigration Ban

    The only sense I can make of this is that the white house strategists want to use immigration as a wedge issue to get people to the polls in November.

    Trump and the Press

    That whole interview on the lawn was nuts. If you click on the tweet by Aaron Rupar that is quoted here you can see a bunch of crazy clips.
