  1. Last "big" Pub debate

    But, I'm a Democrat, which does not necessarily mean "liberal." You know you wouldn't want me calling you a Tea Bagger, because I'm pretty sure you're not that far right.  But, to the point, I consider myself part of the solution- A Dem who is willing to listen to any and everyone and make my mind up. 
  2. Last "big" Pub debate

    I like Kasich. But aside from him, I'm still waiting for the Republicans to have a substantive conversation about the issues. 
  3. NFL established ticket prices for the SB aren't that bad. I'm just curious as to how John Q. Public can be charged with scalping but ticket outlets don't?  That being said, our tailgating friends decided they were going and got 3 days/2 nights, airfare, hotel, party and tickets... $8k each. $16,000 to see your team basically leave their offense on the bus. 
  4. Panther Fans Will Get Their Team Back Now

    I didn't say he was treated "badly." I said he was treated differently. And I'll stop making that point as soon as you can legitimately explain why you think he isn't treated differently.  
  5. So now all the hype is gone, the vast majority of people cannot remember who lost the Super Bowl a year later, Carolina's weaknesses were exposed and, as expected, Cam is getting blasted in the media again.  The bandwagon is emptying, the part time fans are leaving and the draft is three and a half months away. Carolina Panther fans who have been around for a couple decades will have their team back now. As of late last night, the Carolina Panthers are just another NFL football team quickly forgotten in the aftermath of the game and Peyton Manning's soon-to-be-announced retirement. They will once again be that small-market team with a lifetime W-L record of around .500 with a mercurial and moody QB who happens to be black (but that's not the reason he is treated differently than his peers by the press), a pretty damn good defense and a relatively small following of loyal fans.  The Panthers lost the game, but Panther fans got their team back- the team that got hijacked about 12 weeks ago when someone noticed they were winning. 
  6. Best Trump Yet...

  7. Deangelo Williams picks....

    WTF was that? 
  8. AP: Gov't declares 22 Clinton emails 'top secret'

    I honestly don't know the answer. But it would seem to me that if she did sign something to that effect and she broke the law, then charge her. Why all the grandstanding, why all the feigned indignity, why all the hand-wringing? Charge her and the Republican's biggest enemy is out of the Presidential race. How easy is that for ya?  Just charge her already and let Fox News go find something else to feed on for the next 2 years, like complaining about Josh Gad's Trump impersonation on Lip Sync Battle the other night.    
  9. AP: Gov't declares 22 Clinton emails 'top secret'

    So, why doesn't the Republican Congress simply file charges? Oh, that's right, because wasting everyone's time with this non-stop bullshit is far more fun than, you know, legislating or doing something productive. Of course, the Republican Party hasn't been productive since Dwight Eisenhower. 
  10. AP: Gov't declares 22 Clinton emails 'top secret'

    The Republican Party has the corner on both those markets. 
  11. ESPN writer Super Bowl picks are in *Surprise*

    I'm so glad I gave up watching sports shows in favor of just watching the games themselves. If kickoff is 1:05PM, the TV goes on at 1:05. Tomorrow will be no different when the TV goes on around 6:20.  
  12. Wall St reform

    Neither.  Bill Clinton and a bi-partisan effort killed Glass-Stegall; bailouts and the Citizens United ruling essentially all allowed the banking industry to freely handle anyone's money, as much as they want, any way they want. So if you're thinking anyone in the real estate business and super pacs aren't vulnerable to financial influence.....
  13. Gun show loopholes

    No sh!t, Sherlock. But that's not the context of your thread. You're asking about gun show loopholes and, in the vast majority of the country, they are the easiest, quickest and currently legal way to make a purchase and avoid a background check.  But instituting some kind of control at an organized event like a gun show can't be all that difficult. 
  14. Gun show loopholes State of Indiana proves to be one amongst the many states that have very few restrictions regarding firearms. The only real prohibition is in regards to the carrying of handguns. All firearms are not subject to any form of Indiana licensing, and the registration of guns or their owners is not necessary under Indiana law. The purchasing of firearms is granted to those over the age of eighteen. The only exception instituted is if a minor with the proper consent by a parent or guardian wishes to purchase a firearm. It is illegal under Indian law to allow for the selling or purchasing of a firearm to a convicted felon, or an individual that is deemed to be addicted to drugs or alcohol. Those that are not mentally proficient to handle a firearm are also prohibited from purchasing firearms. While rifles and shotguns are loosely regulated by Indiana law, there are more specific regulations regarding the purchasing and selling of handguns. The transfer of a handgun is subject to a background check to be conducted by an authorized dealer at the time of purchase. Indiana law provides for law enforcement officials and individuals with a valid concealed carry license to exempt from the instant background check. The background check required in Indiana is for authorized dealers, who may or not be sellers at gun shows. We're not talking about buying a gun at a dealer, where a background check will happen, but a private seller at a show, where there is no requirement.   
  15. Gun show loopholes

    I've seen the Crowder piece a couple times. On the opposite side of that same coin, watch the Real Sports piece in Virginia where a 13 year old kid is refused in one store to buy beer, another to buy lottery tickets and yet another to buy cigarettes. Then walks into a gun show and walks out with a rifle in less than 30 minutes.  By the way, the article linked in my initial response was updated in January 2016. And the "felony" is either an outright lie or it may very well be the penalty for not selling guns per the venue's contract which may require a background check.
