    Where are you from?

    My father's side traces all the way back to a village of 557 in England called "Frisby on the Wreake". The village was given that name by Danish invaders in the 9th or 10th century. My mother's side comes from the Netherlands, and spots along the North Sea. Someone on my father's side was found to have sailed to America as far back as the early 1600's. Adventure and all that. Too white for you, @4Corners? Saw the poop. Keep fighting that good fight, brother.

    Just say "No"... we don't need any more UNC picks just because they played for UNC. Felton was great. Nobody else has been.
  4. This might be the first time I've ever seen a HYPOTHETICAL racism charge from 4Corners. Lmao. Hey gang, you know that thing that didn't happen? It would have been racist had it happened. Keep fighting the good fight, 4.

    He's not even trying to hide it anymore...

    Why are the Dems so set on starting a war with Russia? #WarMongers I guess everyone was equally pissed when Obama told Medvedev on a hot mic to tell Vladimir he'd have more flexibility after his re-election. Had to be. Because attempts at diplomacy = collusion, amirite?? Forget all the sanctions on Russia and Trump's arming of the Ukrainians. Muh collusion! is Mueller still a'comin? I'm still a'waitin.

    I still spot the occasional Carruth jersey around the lots pre-game. That takes some grapes.

    What Does Voting Democrat Do For Me?

    First off, thanks for the non-snarky response. I vote Republican because I feel that society is more productive when competition and hard work are rewarded - and people get to enjoy the fruits of their labor. Lower taxes & fewer regulations open the door for more people (many who weren't in the workforce previously) to get non minimum wage jobs and make real lives for themselves, off the government dole. I think it is noble of you to want everyone to do well... I want that too. I think the big disconnect between Republican and Democrat is HOW that is achieved. I see in most of your points the word "public" is used. To me, anytime someone starts saying "public this" or "public that", I think about higher taxes, a higher cost of living, and a lower standard of living all around. As for the social politics... I tend to stray from the hardline conservatives. I support gay marriage - I don't care what people do in their bedrooms, and if you want to get married, go for it. The religious objection to gay marriage is dated, in my opinion. As for abortion, I am against banning abortions. I do think there ought to be restrictions on late-term abortions (because at that point, you're doing more than letting a woman do what she wants with her body... there is a fully-formed baby that could live outside the womb to think about.) But the thing about rules is that there will always be exceptions, and those things should be looked at on a case by case basis. So for me personally, when I vote Republican, I see my paycheck increase due to lower taxes, which helps tremendously because I have a family to take care of, and I'm the sole earner. I see investment in our military (my brother is a Major in the US Army) to keep us not only safe at home, but to be able to increase our diplomatic capacity around the world. I see a focus on border security... as we can all agree that we have too many mouths to feed right now as it is. We simply can't afford with our astronomical debt to put droves of illegal immigrants on the government dime. It will only make things worse. And quite honestly, I understand how lucky I am to have been born an American citizen - the odds of that happening were incredibly slim if you look at it. I take pride in that, and I think that's another issue where left and right butt heads... because while both sides are compassionate, it seems as if the Republicans are more practical about things, realizing that while we might want to take care of anyone/everyone that crosses our border, we simply can't do it and still be able to maintain the incredible standard of living we've established in this country over the past couple centuries.

    What Does Voting Democrat Do For Me?

    Serious question... not being sarcastic here, and I'm sure I'm going to get a few snarky comments... but I would seriously like someone on the left side of the aisle to explain to me why I would benefit from voting Democrat. I am an upper middle class American. I am a 34 year old white male, am married, and have a 2 year old son. What benefit does the DNC provide to me in return for my vote?

    Report: Players league wide may be staging a coup

    "Lowest common denominator" = their customers? God forbid a company occasionally recognizes their fans and makes moves to keep them around. LoL @ you people.
  10. Of course you did. Why be informed when you can just continue to be wrong? LoL
  11. Neither the GOP or Donald Trump have ever made such generalizations. However, the mainstream media has done a staggeringly effective job or circulating this fake news to social media and message boards all over the world, which triggers leftists, who are just looking for ANY reason to say "TRUMP IS RACIST...SEE?? I TOLD YOU SO." "Trump, Mexicans, and the Media" “When do we beat Mexico at the border? They’re laughing at us, at our stupidity. […] When Mexico sends its people they’re not sending their best. They’re not sending you; they’re not sending you. They’re sending people that have lots of problems, and they’re bringing those problems with us. They’re bringing drugs. They’re bringing crime. They’re rapists, and some, I assume, are good people. But I speak to border guards and they tell us what we’re getting.” "But I do want to point out a few interesting points about Trump’s actual words. Note first that Trump did not say “all Mexicans.” He did not say: “every single one of them” either. He did not say: “All Mexicans, living both in Mexico and abroad.” So apparently he was not talking about all Mexicans, but about a subgroup, an unspecified number of people who the country of Mexico allegedly “sends” to the US, and who are not “the best” people of Mexico. Note also that he emphasized this notion that Mexico “sends” people. It wasn’t just an incidental word. Five times he used the word “sends” or “sending.” Also, it’s interesting that Trump did not use any of these expressions at all: “legal immigrants,” “illegal immigrants,” “undocumented immigrants,” or “unauthorized immigrants.” Since he did not, then some people concluded that he was not talking about legal immigrants or about unauthorized immigrants but about Mexicans in general. This interpretation was useful, because it enabled such people to be outraged and repulsed by the grotesquely false claim that all Mexicans are rapists. It provided them an easy opportunity to speak out to fairly defend the countless many good people of Mexico. Rather than address whatever Trump himself said he meant, they could instead build a scarecrow of Trump, a straw man, a piñata, to attack, ridicule, condemn, hate, and smash. However, this interpretation was implausible and incendiary, because not only did Trump not say that “all Mexicans are rapists,” he also specifically spoke about the “best” people in Mexico, and about some other Mexicans who are “good” people. Neither of those could possibly be rapists. So grammatically it seems utterly bizarre to me that not just normal people but professional news commentators were able to so easily mention, repeatedly, that Trump said all Mexicans are rapists. It was as if his comment about “They’re rapists” were not sandwiched between two positive statements about other Mexicans: some who are “their best” and others who are “good people.” Next, Trump did not say “unauthorized immigrants.” So some people felt entitled to infer something really bad: that he must have been talking about all Mexican immigrants. However, his words about border guards might be construed to mean that maybe he was talking about illegal immigration. More importantly, Trump did not even say the word “immigrants” at all! Therefore some people inferred that he must have been talking about all Mexicans. Again, only his words about “border guards” and “Mexico at the border” might suggest that he was talking about people who crossed the border people who succeed at “beating” the US in dodging border patrol guards, barriers, immigration restrictions, etc. Basically, these points mean that Trump’s words were ambiguous. Promptly, Trump insisted that he was just talking about “illegal immigration.” But skeptics disagreed. They were unwilling to let the speaker determine what he means. Instead, they preferred to insist on the worst interpretations. Some said he was speaking about Mexican immigrants. Others said he was speaking about all Mexicans. Yet nearly nobody said this: his words were ambiguous. Instead, critics decided to take the worst possible meaning as if that’s what Trump said and meant."
