  1. FCC to repeal Net Neutrality

  2. Well if Trump gets his way we may just find out if this poll accurately reflects public opinion. Sadly it probably does. Most here and in general society lack any real perspective when it comes to American imperialism/warmongering.
  3. Trump: I should have left the basketball players in jail

    Right, best stop arguing when your position amounts to: American citizens should not have to adhere to the laws of other nations because in my opinion those laws are too harsh.
  4. Trump: I should have left the basketball players in jail

    These three men would still be overseas potentially facing years in prison if the United States did not intervene on their behalf. Without Trump's consent, no effort would have been made to release them. This much should not even be up for debate.
  5. Trump: I should have left the basketball players in jail

    What you are saying in effect is that Americans shouldn't have to abide by the laws of other nations. What a ridiculous and unrealistic position to take. Don't want to adhere to the customs and laws of other nations? Feel you are entitled to do as you please without being held accountable for your actions. Stay home.
  6. Trump: I should have left the basketball players in jail

    Yeah, they are: "Haha, Mr. Ball is trolling!" There isn't anything about this situation that should be amusing or be turned into an opportunity for trolling or self-promotion. The situation should be sad and disturbing to anyone who cares about our nation. There is a two tiered justice system in this country and it is a big problem. I've called attention to it on numerous occasions in this forum regardless of someone's race, gender, sexually orientation or religious affiliation. I am not about to apologize for doing so. That people continue to evade answering for their criminal behavior in our society in no way justifies it. The concept that "all men are created equal" applies to our courts. Commit a criminal act, expect to be held accountable for your actions. That shouldn't be a foreign concept to anyone. It is the basis of a civilized society.
  7. Trump: I should have left the basketball players in jail

    Just checked the definition of ungrateful. It still means the same thing it always has. It is an accurate and completely appropriate description for Mr. Ball's behavior. How predictable that when attempts to paint criminals as victims fails, you should resort to claims of racism. If I committed multiple acts theft while overseas, I would not expect special favors from my country's leadership, however, in the unlikely event that I received their help, I'd be profusely grateful. I'd also publicly rebuke any person, family member especially, that attempted to leverage my inexcusable behavior into an opportunity for self-promotion (Looking at Mr. Ball).
  8. Trump: I should have left the basketball players in jail

    What the hell are you talking about "poor"? What else needs to be said? Privileged BB players on a fully paid goodwill tour to China committed multiple thefts, embarrass themselves, their team, their school, their conference and their country. Incredibly selfish and stupid behavior. Why shouldn't these three have remained in China to be held accountable for their actions? I would not expect special consideration in a similar situation, nor should you. This should be an embarrassment for any American who was raised to believe stealing is wrong, to put your best foot forward, especially when representing others and to take responsibility for our own actions. Clearly none of these concepts are difficult to grasp. Their importance to any civilized society should intuitively obvious. Yet, somehow they have not only escaped these three goodwill ambassadors from UCLA, they have also escaped Mr. Ball, our president and several posters in this thread.
  9. Trump: I should have left the basketball players in jail

    Best Advice: Anyone who feels they are incapable of traveling overseas for a period of a week or two without committing multiple criminal acts should remain in the USA while their more trustworthy peers enjoy the rewards of a fully paid trip to China. That is about as lenient as it gets. Go overseas with criminal intent and you'll leave yourself open to prosecution by the local authorities, whatever that might entail. Sorry folks, Nanuq doesn't hold any sway over Chinese Criminal Law, it is what it is. That is why I make a point of staying on the straight and narrow pathway when traveling overseas and avoid creating an international incident. I am not the only one, millions of Americans abide by foreign laws and customs every year (even college athletes). You should too, if you know what is good for you. I think our society's standards of acceptable behavior have fallen well below the mark these last few decades. Let's see if we can stop making excuses for knuckleheaded behavior, whether they be college athletes, fathers or POTUS and start holding people accountable for their actions. That idea is so crazy it just might work.
  10. Trump: I should have left the basketball players in jail

    Yeah, you are going to have to make a clearer case for whatever you are trying to connect here.
  11. Trump: I should have left the basketball players in jail

    Holding people accountable for their actions = "treating everyone like dogshit" At what point are adults, that have been recently and repeatedly briefed on the simple rules of modern society, like don't take things that don't belong to you, held accountable for their actions?
  12. Trump: I should have left the basketball players in jail

    I suspect any future shenanigans would be greatly curtailed once faculty shared a story about The Three Athletes Held Accountable for Their Criminal Behavior in China.
  13. Trump: I should have left the basketball players in jail

    Made me laugh, but I doubt any of these three individuals are eligible to return to China. Then again, we have a two tiered justice system and those commoners here that support it.
  14. Trump: I should have left the basketball players in jail

    Yeah, because our society has devolved to the point where holding people accountable for their actions is somehow passe.
