    You wouldn't have ever heard about the murder of Seth Rich if it weren't for the fake news that Jerome Corsi, Fox News and others had pumped out about him. So, the very fact that you are hemming and hawing about how "awfully suspicious" it was all comes down to the fake news. We actually do know! We actually ******* know that Seth Rich and his family were dragged through the mud by a bunch of conspiracy theorists for their own political ends. Jerome Corsi literally admitted it. So dupes like yourself can come around and hem and haw about how "awfully suspicious" it looks and how about "how we'll never know" and all that bull****.... all pure spectulation and all nihilistic BS, the logical end of which means that there can be no such thing as common truth. Just own the fact that you fell for it. For once.

    No offense it this meme makes you an *******. Well yeah... I do mean the offense. You are mocking and shaming all sexual assault victims and this is highly inappropriate and offensive. It’s cruel. It’s disgusting. If you take pleasure or humor or of it then you are those things too. I’ll let you explain yourself.

    Papi is a triabilist. If you or Christine Ford were to make an accusation about Obama or Biden, he would support you 100%. This is the same tribe that still believes Obama was born in Kenya and the Clintons have had dozens of people whacked with no evidence.

    What an incredible honor. Thank you, Bert. That’s some beautiful artwork. I can only imagine this photo represents one of the many pro-Shelton rallies to come. Fathers and sons, mothers and daughters, the deuce, they will all be there to gather under the Chevrolet fountain to enjoy some free wi-fi and reminisce about that time I posted that Ajax sucks.

    So we have a sports owner that the fans are persuaded knows nothing about being one, despite being probably the only sports owner in the country that grew up in the middle of franchises in two major sports, who has engineered everyone in the world's dream hire to run one of his franchises, (brooming K Holland despite the Ilitch org being paralyzed by its misplaced loyalty) who has already seen a number of the team's biggest past organizational failures (most of which have been cited here) being addressed, but he is still a Moran and is slammed based on what people speculate he will or won't do in 3 or 4 yrs. OK. I get it, Avila doesn't look like the sharpest tool in the shed when he gives interviews, and I could care less because that criterion has zero to do with how good he really is at his job. Something much harder for any of us to see than his TV skills. I have no idea if this org is going to succeed with this management cast, but aside from not having any players - which is 95% a legacy issue, I don't see much In the way of criticisms based on any objective, discernible facts. The franchise has made the moves to join the 21st century, things hinge on present and future draft picks and trade acquisitions who are still in the minors.

    Just so we are clear, Michael Cohen was *indicted* for the payments that you claim weren't illegal. Generally, people aren't indicted and enter pleas for things that aren't illegal. In addition, as I understand it, it does not matter where the money came from... if the intention of the payments (ie. the hush money to Karen MacDougal and Stormy Daniels) was to protect and insulate the Trump campaign, it's can be deemed a campaign contribution. This has been stated over and over, and you appear to ignore it over and over.

    Sorry. We do the best we can. As you may or not be aware, it seems to be no matter what we do, we get complaints. That being said, I find there’s not much reason for this thread going forward, as there DOES exist an older climate/warming thread that can be added to. Have a wonderful day, everyone, and when you send your complaints, it’s Susan with an “s”, not a “z”.

    Look. When we refer to articles in our posts, or if we quote them, we provide the source. If you’re not willing to do that, don’t post. Also, your threads seem to be your personal joke/rant vending machine. That isn’t how we prefer our members to have discourse here. If that’s not to your liking, then don’t post. You are a guest here. Would you go into someone’s house, and **** in their living room? Because that seems to be your schtick. It’s getting old, very quickly.

    We didn't see this fuss over Gorsuch so I don't think it's about politics. Kavanaugh is coming across as shady and untrustworthy. He's presenting himself as a choir boy boy scout in his youth and people are coming forward contradicting that and we're seeing evidence contradicting that. It's not about the partying and underage drinking (which he denied last night on Fox). It's the lying about it. If he's lying about that then he'll lie about knowing certain women, being drunk around them, and sexually assaulting them. We have to assess his credibility and so far he's failing miserably. This is a lifetime appointment so we have one chance to get it right. There's no equivalency to congressional candidates.

    This is the heart of it. Except at colleges which have foundational charters committed to right wing principles and who therefore screen their faculty that way (i.e. Hillsdale) most any other institution devoted to learning and research is going to have an objectivist/empiricist outlook, and today the GOP rejects objectivism and empiricism. Their policies are not based on practicality, science (social or hard) or likelihood of success or even sound theory, but by nationalism, religious bias and capital class greed. The intellectual conflict between the academic class and the GOP is pretty inevitable given the GOP rejection of reality based thinking. That is just fact.

    I just laugh sometimes because the very same people who go on and on about how stupid and lazy and disengaged the "kids today" are... you know the ones who do nothing but stare at their phone and eat tide pods.... now that they're getting involved and engaged with something important... that's a problem too? Which is it? What do you want your kids to be? A robot who just does waht they're told? That's not reality. Not now and it wasn't reality when you were that age too, whether it was 1990, 1980, 1970, 1960, etc. The technology and distractions change but they're always there. Your generation was not any better. Stop pretending it was. I'm proud of my 17 year old. He's smarter than me. I don't care if he agrees or not. (we argue over Lebron and Jordan....)

    No. He didn't. Just the opposite. He has tapes and notes documenting the truth. It's a truth that proves Trump is a moron. Knuckle dragging mouth breathers are all supporting the person who mocks disabled people. The same person who ADMITS, ON TAPE, that he sexually assaulted women, snuck around backstage as contestants for Miss America changed clothes and allowed Russians into the Oval Office for a private meeting. Wake up Stan, open your eyes. Wake up Stan and smell the coffee. Your man is a lying, cheating and nasty person. You relate to someone like this? If for any reason you answer "yes", than it shows a serious lack of character on your part. It also proves you're not better than he is. But go ahead, deflect, defend and support the type of man you strive to be. The rest of America (and the world) is watching.

    I'm a fan of Derek Trucks and Susan Tedeschi. In an interview I heard him say that his uncle was a baseball player so I looked it up and yes, it was indeed Virgil Trucks. I thought that was cool. I belong to a fan page of their band and a discussion came up about how we discovered them. Virgil's daughter reached out to me. I thought that was very neat.

    I want to be very honest with everyone, because I don't want to be here if I'm not truthful and don't pay tribute. The better part of a decade ago, I posted here under the alias of "Uncle Sam." and was banned for being inflammatory. I was young, incredibly naive, and had a penchant for provoking. Well, as years have passed I've continued to read on and analyze everyone's input here. I just want to pay tribute to people like Brian and Huey, who were giants to us in this little community. Most people who posted in the forum when I was younger are long gone or fairly inactive, but, once a tiger always a tiger. Baseball is something that transcends generation and year to year. I hope that I am welcome here.

    "Let us be pitchers, we'll add our resources together I've got some meal money here in my bag" So we bought a box of Percocets, and fortified port wine And walked off to look for Comerica "Buddy," I said, as we boarded the charter for Pittsburgh "Michigan’s still such a thrill for me now It took me four days to hitch-hike from Toledo I've come to look for Comerica" Laughing at the fans Making fun of their faces He said “The blonde in the halter weighs 200 pounds” I said, "Be careful, she’s on her way over to drop you" "Toss me a greenie, I think there are some in my raincoat" "We popped the last ones an hour ago" So I trudge to the pitcher’s mound, the slider doesn’t bite And the ball flies over the right field fence "Skipper, I'm lost," I said, though I knew Brad was sleeping. "I'm empty and aching and I don't know why" Counting the days ‘til they tell me I’m DFA They've all come to look for Comerica All come to look for Comerica All come to look for Comerica

    Game over. Suck on that, Mocs. A crisp 2:12 to play this game. No fewer than 7,134 position players got into the game and there were 943 pitching changes. Despite all of that, the game was over in 2:12. You know why? No intentional walks.

    there is no doubt a movement toward rejection of science and empiricism In the land, but there really isn't much grounds for compromise with people who go that route. Those who refuse to accept observation, data, and the scientific method for analysis and understanding of reality are also doomed to fail in their endeavors and suffer much needless pain because the universe just doesn't care about the fact that what they believe makes them more comfortable than what nature and the universe is telling them. But this is not even liberalism vs conservatism. Liberalism and Conservatism both can and should and have easily co-existed within the Western Rationalist Enlightenment framework. This is so because Liberal vs Conservative is fundamentally a debate about relative values and methods within a system of empirical knowledge and understanding. But today US Conservatism has abandoned acceptance of fact and truth as a paramount virtue and has thus removed itself from a Rationalist world concept.

    Jim Adduci hit 2 home runs and a double today in a doubleheader. After the second game Al Avila called him again, this time just begging him to accept a callup, but once again Jim told him to go **** himself, only a lot more emphatically than last time. Avila just doesn't seem to understand the business empire that Jim is building in Toledo and how he needs to be there every day to supervise its growth. The strip clubs, yes I suppose that Barbato and Lewicki could look after those for a few days but it isn't optimal. As for poker which is the biggest revenue generator so far, if Jim isn't there personally to play, well duh. A more recent initiative by Jim is the distribution of cigarettes which he can get, shall we say, "wholesale". If you are wondering about the recent disappearance of a couple of 18-wheelers full of cigarettes on their way to Toledo, that's a very disturbing circumstance and Jim is already on the record as having condemned it. So once again, Al Avila did the only thing that he could do at the end of the telephone conversation with Jim. He apologized as humbly as he could, and then he quietly hung up the phone.

    I feel the need to post this as a near life long Republican, from a long line of Republicans. Our forefathers were brilliant. Our two party system is integral to a democracy. Conservative values are important and are the values on which our country was based. Every social issue has a conservative perspective and a liberal perspective. BOTH are valid and need advocates to fight for their constituents, and hopefully the result of the process is one that settles in the middle of the bell shaped curve that is America, and makes neither extreme happy. Majority rules, but there are checks and balances so that extremes seldom prevail. It seems the party I have supported all these years has degraded to one of demagogues and conspiracy theorists, who, instead of promoting our values, wants only to demonize our opponent, and refuses to compromise, wants to spin, rather than acknowledge a truth. And now we have selected this man to represent us, who is really neither conservative or republican, who represents the worst in us. I despair and I want to get this over with. We have a lot of work to do to get back to being advocates for our beliefs, rather than just being divisive.
