  1. POTUS Impeachment Watch

    Nunes reminds me of Carter Page where you can't figure out if they are: 1)stupid 2) slap happy/who gives a **** at this point/we're all going down/smoke em if you got em 3) so confident that they know they will get off scot free
  2. POTUS Impeachment Watch

    It's part of the deep state... they want to silence them.
  3. The "chain" for Fulmer, at least from DET perspective, goes "Porcello-Cespedes-Fulmer". Has anyone, like Joe Posnanski, studied a trade chain? Does that term even exist? I just made it up. How long has a trade chain gone where you can reasonably say that the player traded got a decent return? Is it reasonable to expect that chain to continue?
  4. POTUS Impeachment Watch

    And they're whining that it's censorship.
  5. POTUS Impeachment Watch

    4 of the top 5 growing states in terms of % from 2010-2017 are Texas, North Dakota, Utah, and Colorado. Florida was the other one. In the upper half of growth rate you have OK, NE, MT, SD, ID.... The real losers in this trend look to be the traditional swing states, OH/PA/MI... throw in IL, WI, MO.... What would really throw things off electorally is if some large states like CA, TX, and FL were to split their EC votes. Imagine if the dems couldn't bank of CA's 50+? Or the GOP with TX?

    What does gerrymandering have to do with the presidential election? State boundaries aren’t drawn.
  7. POTUS Impeachment Watch

    Because that was the whole ******* point. States were not just geographical boundaries. We have two houses of Congress. The upper chamber is given equal representation and the lower chamber based on population. The states elect the president therefore you combine the two chambers in that process. You guys can whine all you want but it ain’t going anywhere without the consent of these smaller states who would lose their influence. It doesn’t matter what you think is fair or silly. My point with the WS analogy was to illustrate how silly it all is. You are applying a different set of rules to a situation and complaining you didn’t get the results you wanted.
  8. POTUS Impeachment Watch

    Because they are 1 of 50 states. We are not a democracy. Should a team lose the WS if they scored more cumulative runs than he other team over 7 games?
  9. POTUS Impeachment Watch

    But without that unbalanced structure the smaller states wouldn’t have joined. You are describing a different game. Moot point anyway because they won’t agree to it now. You need them to dump it as it’s a constitutional change.
  10. POTUS Impeachment Watch

    I don't trust any systems anymore... paper ballots. I don't understand why that isn't the best way. You can physically track a ballot back to a person with a control number.
  11. Gun Legislation, Crime and Events

    What kind of suck **** can criticize what these kids are doing in Florida and elsewhere to protest?
  12. POTUS Impeachment Watch

    skip ahead to around 5:30
  13. POTUS Impeachment Watch

    Ever see the video of Slick singing the Russian national anthem?
  14. POTUS Impeachment Watch

    I like the EC. I really don't see it as this big philosophical problem or anomaly. It's working as designed. It was not meant to be ceremonial or procedural. It's to balance things out. I've thought that always and won't change it even though my preferred candidate got hosed by it in 2016. I also think state should be free to pick their EC electors however they want. If they want to do it by popular vote within state, or divvy it proportionally somehow... or have their state legislators do it ... so be it.
  15. POTUS Impeachment Watch

    I don't live in Texas or Florida and my name is Rob. Guess I'm clear then.....
  16. POTUS Impeachment Watch

    and many from the other party didn't vote for his opponent.... they hold responsibility too. A non vote for Trump's major opponent by default was a vote for Trump. There were only 2 realistic choices this election.
  17. POTUS Impeachment Watch

    see what I mean... I think what we saw was Patrick Roy's statue of liberty "save" in game 6 of the 2002 Western Conference Finals...
  18. POTUS Impeachment Watch

    His take is there's nothing to start over with because anyone who voted GOP before Trump was also racist and whatever.... that's simply not true. He just has to play the "I liked the band before they were popular" card.
  19. Max Scherzer

    Yep, that's him.... Looks the same. I really liked his takes on things.
  20. POTUS Impeachment Watch

    Basically 313's schtick is "You still suck despite what you say about Trump" Rude Go play somewhere's else.
  21. POTUS Impeachment Watch

    He eloquently stated what I was trying to infer earlier. By coopering Flynn ADMITTED to crimes. So if he withdraws his plea you can't just ignore those things he ADMITTED. So either he did those things he ADMITTED.... or he lied. So explain to me great stan how this is going to work? Or has the "Judges" on Fox and Byron York not yet gotten that far?
  22. The Presidency of Donald J. Trump

    The fundamentalist school I went to was not a fan of Graham because, among other things, he "prayed with the pope and some bishops" Yep.
