  1. I'm not content or satisfied until we get the trophy. We've got just as good a shot as anyone right now, even if it is us and Pittsburgh in the Super Bowl. Chicago could even get the #1 seed away from the Rams and Saints at this point, lol, so nothing is a given. Hopefully we eat our humble pie and come out this week and the rest of the season out for blood.

    Game of Thrones - Season 8

    1. GoT 2. Breaking Bad 3. The Leftovers 4. Shameless 5. Fargo 6. The Sinner 7. True Detective 8. Lost 9. The Walking Dead 10. Jericho 11. Freaks and Geeks *disclaimer - I couldn't get into The Wire, and I never finished The Sopranos... I got bored with both
  3. Also, waaaaaaaaaaaahhhhh!
  4. Or, here is an idea. Instead of puffing a lot of hot air into "reforming" criminals, how about we make it not as easy for minor offenders to be locked up in the first place?

    Game of Thrones - Season 8

    First season is a little different than the last two. Stick it out and you'll be glad.
  6. I said Cam, CMC, and Donte yesterday. I'll add Gano. Kickers don't really matter, so I forgot about him in the previous discussion. But, Gano is better than most.
  7. I feel like the entire argument is a bit regressionist, honestly. I agree with the concept of reparations, but I still don't even know how you begin to develop a feasible plan to enact them. You have alluded to looking out for yours, while advocating no harm to anyone else. But, you do realize that there are entire sections of the non-black, non-AA population that have also been neglected by the capitalist society the white elite built this country on, right? Obviously, they haven't had their culture stripped from them like the descendants of slaves have, unless they are descendants of Native Americans maybe, but the poor and downtrodden have always had footprints on their backs from the same capitalist machine you say you're willing to work within. I guess my point here is that if you want true change, not just to seek settlement of a debt you feel you're owed because of your ancestry, then you should indeed advocate for ALL whom have been victim of the machine out of principle, not just out of an afterthought of "after we get ours" or whatever. Again, I am all for reparations. Show me how it can be done without actually harming everyone in the middle and lower classes, though. I'll even give you more of a head start than has been offered so far: Cut military funding by more than half, tax higher earners and corporations a lot more, and distribute that money towards lower income area schools, housing, businesses, transit, and other infrastructure, with maximum oversight. Increase the minimum income tax threshold so that those that bring home less than, say, $50,000 a year have no tax liability. Also, tax reform for every other bracket. Try to begin eliminating the wealth gap. Cap wealth accumulation. Offer a stimulus to anyone who can document their former slave ancestry and/or native American ancestry. Provide research assistance via archival genealogical records, DNA testing, etc. to those whom apply. Consolidate government owned property and distribute/provide mutually beneficial business, agricultural, or living space from the non-critical pool. To be a recipient, a person has to demonstrate some sort of measurable positive impact to the community the space is within and/or generate enough of a tax contribution to be socially responsible. Raise the federal minimum wage. Offer reduced or free tuition to all basic Associate's Degree programs in all community colleges and universities, and lessen the burden of the pathway to four year and other advanced degrees. End mandatory minimum sentencing for petty crimes, especially minor drug crimes. Legalize and tax marijuana federally. Once you take the basic steps above, then start giving an annual stimulus to everyone that makes less than the minimum income tax threshold. Basically, a tax return without having put anything in other than sales tax on purchases.

    Game of Thrones - Season 8

    I was way late to the party. I only watched all three seasons last year sometime I think, over a matter of days, lol. It had the potential to go at least 2-3 more seasons. Carrie Coon is awesome.

    Game of Thrones - Season 8

    The Leftovers is easily in my top 5, maybe even top 3, shows of all time. It is a shame it ended so soon.
  10. Hadn't heard that. Really digging it. Morbid Angel doesn't get the love when bands talk about influences, but I hear a lot of them in this track as well as a lot of the genre today.

    venom got too busy back into music IIRC. He created a band called Black Pope a few years ago that kind of fizzled out, but he started another one from its ashes that is staying busy called Violent Life Violent Death. https://violentlifeviolentdeath.bandcamp.com/album/come-heavy-breath but yeah rodeo is right I think he was a full on Trumper before it was a real thing...

    "We need to tone down the impact humans have on the environment" Capitalist entities: "Whoah! Hold on there, Science!"
