    Yeah he might be a little suspect in a traditional power running game where a guy like Wes Horton may be better suited in early down and run situations
    But I do think he could be a big help in the run game against teams like Seattle which like to run some read option.
    IMO he has the athletic ability to play both RB and QB effectively.  Not sure we have had anyone else that can do that since Greg Hardy left
    I cant wait to see more of him.  And if he adds weight but keeps his explosiveness he could be a 3 down DE in a year or two.

    Good stuff.  I just posted your video in another thread as well not realizing you had already posted it.
    Guy seems like a possible steal

    Ryan Delaire 2013 Towson highlights
    I think Gettleman may have found a diamond in the rough here.  You don't want to get carried away from one game, but there is a lot to like with this guy.
    But a few things stand out about the guy.  He has a high motor, he has exceptional closing speed, and he plays with bad intentions.
    He is also a guy that possibly could help tremendously next Sunday against the read option that Seattle runs so well.  He has the athetic ability to play disciplined and cover both the RB and QB.  Something Jared Allen cannot do at this stage of his career.
    I usually try not to get caught up in the hype, but this guy could be a good one.
    Here is his highlights from 2013 at Towson.  You can chalk alot of it to his low level of competition, but what you can't ignore in these highlights is his speed once he gets off his blocker.  If these videos have already been posted then my apologies.
    And here is a video breaking down his game before the draft

    Funny thing you brought up Nazism in your defense of civilian gun ownership, and I think there are a couple things you may be misinformed or unaware of.
    1 - there was armed resistance by Jews against the Nazis, most of which took place in Polish ghettos in the early 40's
    2 - perhaps more pertinent to your attempt to try to draw a connection to taking of civilian guns from the populace leading to the Holocaust, the SA was a civilian paramilitary force that pledged allegiance to the Nazi party, and were not a part of the regular Germany goverment sanctioned military.
    With the assistance of this armed civilian paramilitary group the Nazis were able to overthrow a goverment, end their democracy, and go on to commit genocide
    So a more appropriate analogy in your cautionary tale would be if the Republican party  recruited the members of the NRA and other civilian gun owners to become their party's militia, overthrew our democracy, establish a one rule dictatorship, and threw Democrats in prisons, began liquidating minorities and deporting immigrants.
    All to do as Adolf Hitler also stated, "Make this country great again"

    Sound like to me Alabama cannot afford Voter ID laws.  Makes sense to repeal it if they cant provide the necessary infrastructure to have such laws.
    Even if you take Voter ID out of the equation making it harder to obtain a drivers liscense has economic impacts as well.

    Is it fair to point out that Alabama passed tax cuts for the wealthy and this year bought a new private jet for the governor?
    Yet they cant keep DMVs open despite having in some cases already 3 hour waits for driver's liscenses?  That will only get worse I imagine.

    Glad you are entertained.
    There sems to be a lot of other people who live in Alabama and are familiar with the situation that are pretty upset with the changes and not quite so entertained by this.

    True but first you have to know someone who has a ghost gunner or 3-D replicator  (which costs about $3,000 itself) and then after materials and a small mark up for a ghost gun it would probably cost about $3,000- $4,000 dollars on the black market.
    It wouldn't be cheap.  Even if you wanted to do it yourself and not buy from someone else it would cost between $2,000-$3,000 dollars for equipment and parts.
    And if demand skyroketed you would have to think that those prices would go up as well.
    But ghost guns are going to be an issue with or without gun regulation.
    I feel like I should point ot again that criminals rarely randomly kill inncent people.  They usually kill other criminals or gang members.
    But that is a valid concern.

  10. teeray added a post in a topic How affordable is "Affordable"?   

    Too bad we couldn't pass the public option.  
    It was designed to keep premiums in check and protect the consumers as well as give people more choices of how to cover themselves.  Insurance companies won a big victory in getting that taken out of the law.
    What is really scary is that health care costs are growing slower than originally projected before ACA and are below the levels of the 30 years before the recession.
    Also, one of the reasons you are seeing premium increases is because there are more claims being paid because more people have acces to health care and medicine that they previously did not have.
    Medicare for all would save the American people and businesses about 18 trillion dollars over 10 years.  Money that can go to job creation, wage increases, and consumption.  So that may be a good start
    ; -)
    ACA is not perfect, but it is significantly better than what we had before.  It is still giving too much leverage to insurance companies that are merging to elevate their leverage for negotiating with hospitals and the government to charge people more and pay out less.

    I don't know how consistent he will be, but the guy was an animal at Townson and he has really good speed for a DL.
    My gut tells me he is a keeper and this is not a flash in the pan.
