In Topic: Donald Sterling (LA Clippers owner) controversy

12 August 2014 - 10:40 PM

Well its official: Donald Sterling is no longer the owner of the LA Clippers.  Turns out he is just a old racist man who was ruled in court to be too senile to run the Sterling Family Trust he created.  http://www.bloomberg...d-nba-says.html

 

 

Still waiting on the "skeletons" he promised us from the team of private investigators he hired to investigate the commissioner and the other owners.  Though to be fair, that was 2 months ago- he probably forgot about them


In Topic: Obama's Executive Orders

10 August 2014 - 10:28 AM

The constitution is a bitch for sure.  The law professor/community organizer does not quite get the "getting along with others" scenario.  He has never had to.  His job has always been to complain about stuff and point fingers.  Nothing new in how he handles his current position.

 

When he says, "people didn't send me here just to twiddle my fingers", he is right.  Trouble is, what he campaigned on and what the realities were after he took office made people very uncomfortable with him and his agenda.

 

This is why we have a constitution and especially why we elect the House every 2 years.  The House swung waaaaay over to the Pubs just BECAUSE of the Americans lack of trust in Obama.  The American people are in essence thwarting his agenda instead of the party of NO.  If the Senate goes red in November, HE will be the person of NO, as the Senate will send bill after bill to him to pass or veto.  Right now, bills go to Harry Reids office to die. 

 

The roadblock that is in front of the president is the Constitution and the People, they just use the Pubs as their tool.  For him to think that the People have no say is more evidence of his arrogance in my opinion.  Reagan had to work with a totally Democract congress, Clinton had to work with Gingrich.  Both were successful.

 

It can be done, just not sure Obama knows how

 

I thought the voting in the last elections was pretty close to 50-50, so really you mean "the American people voting in heavily gerrymandered districts are thwarting his agenda"


In Topic: Obama's Executive Orders

Go check the actual stats dumbass. The republican congress has passed laws just slightly below the avg of the past 10 congresses. The democrat controlled senate has passed laws at about 1/10th of the average.

But, just like most ignorant Dems.....don't let facts get in the way of your ignorant rants.

 

So you're giving the House credit for sending bills through that they know full well wont pass the Senate or the President?

 

You must think those guys in the House are fuging morons, because its a well known fact that you actually have to work with the other parts of the government to get things done.  Passing bills that you know wont go through is the definition of a token gesture, something they obviously know all about having voted to repeal Obamacare how many times now?


In Topic: Ebola outbreak

Do you really think the Ebola patients we flew here from Africa are going to spread the disease to even a single person?  I mean just look at the precautions we took with this guy.

In Topic: Love traded to CLE for Wiggins, Bennett, Pick

07 August 2014 - 05:05 PM

It will definitely be interesting to see whether Dan Gilbert is willing to go into the luxury tax for multiple years to keep this team together.  There is nothing in the rulebook to keep them from resigning guys like Thompson and Waiters, but the only team willing to go deep into the luxury tax since the new CBA was signed has been the Nets.  Even the Heat owner traded away Mike Miller to stay under the tax last year.

 

If they are able to keep everyone together, that is gonna be a really great core to build around.  Kyrie- Waiters- Lebron- Love- Varejo- Thompson is a very strong 6 guys, throw in a few vets every year who will sign for cheap and that team could be a title contender for years. 

 

As for the trade- Cavs gave up way too much.  I understand giving up Wiggins is probably the only way to get it done, but giving up Bennett is rough, and giving up a 1st with them is just silly.  You're gonna need those 1sts to try and find some cheap role players going forward
