    Neither is the 2nd if you look into intents and purposes.  But you guys tell me that doesnt matter.

    Isnt that the point when people like ARSEN brings up that black guy he knew who became an executive and the other non-whites who cracked the system.
    Not necessarily you Stirs, but some of you guys cant have it both ways.  You cant use a few anecdotal cases to prove there is no systemic oppression and it is just a matter of hard work and this one guy I know proves it, then turn around and dismiss people who succeeded with government support as just an exception to the norm.

    You mean like the NRA did in the 1970's?

    This is a good read on Bayley, why she is awesome, and how the WWE will probably eventually fug her up too when she gets to the main roster.

    And this is an article from before last Saturday's match that shows how a long fleshed out storyline that makes sense will get people invested in women's wrestling matches just as much and any men's match.

    A lot of these people who are "now is not the right time to discuss it" are the same ones standing up cheering as Trump brings up families of murder victims to the stage to push xenophobic immigration rhetoric

    The Trump problem is a microcosm of the GOP problem.  There is a significant portion of their base that is xenophobic and generally racist.  I believe it is a minority of the overall party, but large enough that it can sway elections, especially primary elections.
    So GOP candidates have to walk this line between coded racism or openly combative against minorities/immigrants and progressing to more mainstream progressive racial views.
    Trump is winning because his rhetoric on immigration is "saying what we are thinking but other candidates arent willing to say"  1st generation immigrants do not commit violent crime at a higher rate than domesticly born US citizens.  But he is tapping into this fear that many older whites and uneducated whites believe.
    This minority is holding the GOP back IMO.  And Trump is winning because he is feeding them the red meat they want on issues of immigration.  
    The GOP establishment realizes this and that is why they are trying to kill him off (figuratively).  He has tapped into the worst of the GOP constituents, and in doing so exposing the party as a whole and forcing other candidates down the vortex with him.

    Yeah.  It would be better if they spoke English though.

    I am a Christian, but I study it on my own terms and dont attend church.  Religion is a powerful drug, and it bothers me to see people consumed by Christian righteousness.  Especially when a loving and inclusive religion is used as an excuse for hatred of others as it has been throughout history.
    But I dont blame religion itself for evil deeds, I blame evil people using religion as a vehicle or excuse to perform evil deeds or reinforce bigoted views.

    You guys should think about how Spanish speaking people feel.  A couple years back I went to London I dont know what language they were speaking.  It was rough.

    I want Rollins to eventually hit rock bottom.
    I want him to lose the title, lose the backing of the Authority, lose his confidence, everything.  Then fight his way back to the top in babyface fashion.
    If I've learned anything it is that redemptive stories like Sami Zayn and Bayley are always the best and most satisfying stories.  I think Rollins is the best wrestler in WWE right now, and can work well as a babyface or heel.
    Also, although I like Ambreigns or "The Shield Light" something needs to give there.  
    If I were booking WWE I would have Reigns turn heel on Ambrose, then have some faction led by Reigns and have Ambrose having to get revenge on him and this faction or have Reigns join the Wyatt family  (which wouldn't make any sense but when has that atopped WWE before).
    Reigns has been booked so strong that he is never an underdog even against multiple opponents (Lesnar is the exception... as always).  But turn Reigns heel and give him backup against Ambrose who has always been booked not weak but vulnerable and now it seems that everything is stacked against Ambrose.
    It would also fit the Ambrose character.  I would borrow heavily from the Austin v Hart Foundation feud where Austin just made life hell for everyone in the Hart Foundation.  Constantly interfering in their matches and just antagonizing them.  Plus the "Lunatic Fringe" is just crazy enough to keep attacking even after he gets his ass beat by 4 guys.
    Plus I think turning Reigns heel would help him get over in the long run.  And then when he goes back babyface he will be ready for a world championship run.
    But, knowing WWE they will do the opposite and turn Ambrose heel and make Reigns look like Superman and the fans simply wont buy it, just like they didnt leading up to WrestleMania.
    For the record I think Ambrose would be a fantastic heel, but he has been booked vulnerable that if he turned on Reigns no one would really see him as a legitimate threat to SuperReigns so I dont think fans would get as invested in that feud.

    There is definitely some waste or unproductive spending that need to be reigned in, but it isnt as much as some people act like there is. 
    But I am all or cutting wasteful spending.
