  1. Driving away protesters for a photo-op should be a jail sentence but it won't be. 18 US Code 242: Whoever, under color of any law, statute, ordinance, regulation, or custom, willfully subjects any person in any State, Territory, Commonwealth, Possession, or District to the deprivation of any rights, privileges, or immunities secured or protected by the Constitution or laws of the United States, or to different punishments, pains, or penalties, on account of such person being an alien, or by reason of his color, or race, than are prescribed for the punishment of citizens, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than one year, or both; and if bodily injury results from the acts committed in violation of this section or if such acts include the use, attempted use, or threatened use of a dangerous weapon, explosives, or fire, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than ten years, or both; and if death results from the acts committed in violation of this section or if such acts include kidnapping or an attempt to kidnap, aggravated sexual abuse, or an attempt to commit aggravated sexual abuse, or an attempt to kill, shall be fined under this title, or imprisoned for any term of years or for life, or both, or may be sentenced to death. The above basically means your can't be deprived of your Constitutional rights. In the protesters case the 1st Amendment rights of freedom of speech, the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.
  2. Good to see you too! 🙂 Sorry to hear about your Dad 😪
  3. Can't prove it and I'm not going to bother researching it but it looks like he is holding that bible upside down.
  4. I do remember that MWG was originally known as TWG. MLB was slow to the Internet as mlb.com was initially owned by a law firm. I want to say this site existed in some form before everything was brought under the umbrella of MLB.com. I believe the first post on this site - in its original format - was made by C.J. Nitkowski. The site crashed when Randy Smith was fired. That's all to the best of my memory and may or may nor be accurate.
  5. Health and Human Services Secretary Alex Azar said "Unfortunately the American population is a very diverse...." So a diverse population is "unfortunate?" How should one interpret that comment? Racist? Not racist?
  6. No need as they will be standing in the Sugar Free line. ?
  7. Good memory Oblong! The four you named for sure. I'm sure there are a few others.
  8. I think the other day MWG said that Motownsports was going to be 20 years old May 15, 2020. If so, that is today! I have been here the whole time as well as whatever the site was called before it was Motownsports. So Happy Birthday to us! A long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away..........
  9. The Lions always have to take the injured guy. ?
  10. Next pick is a Hall Of Famer - right?
  11. Not from me. I was brought up on Mad magazine and George Carlin from a very early age.
  12. The President tweeted "Liberate Michigan" - "Liberate Minnesota" - "Liberate Virginia". Does that not go against USC § 2385? Was that not advocating actions against current state law?
  13. Unfortunately, they don't. These are the facts - you will not hear them mentioned anywhere by anyone including the media: 18 U.S. Code § 2385. Advocating overthrow of Government Whoever knowingly or willfully advocates, abets, advises, or teaches the duty, necessity, desirability, or propriety of overthrowing or destroying the government of the United States or the government of any State, Territory, District or Possession thereof, or the government of any political subdivision therein, by force or violence, or by the assassination of any officer of any such government; or Whoever, with intent to cause the overthrow or destruction of any such government, prints, publishes, edits, issues, circulates, sells, distributes, or publicly displays any written or printed matter advocating, advising, or teaching the duty, necessity, desirability, or propriety of overthrowing or destroying any government in the United States by force or violence, or attempts to do so Shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than twenty years, or both, and shall be ineligible for employment by the United States or any department or agency thereof, for the five years next following his conviction.
  14. Believe it or not I know what estimated means. ? So what does this mean? "Estimates for the 2017-2018 season are still preliminary and may change again once data on testing practices and deaths from the 2017-2018 season become available." Are these charts estimating what the burden WILL BE for the 2017-18 flu season based on X number of deaths or an the estimation of deaths that occurred during the 2017-18 flu season?
  15. Everyone seemingly links to those CDC pages to "prove" that there were 61,000 flu-related deaths for the 2017-18 flu season however the first word on the page is ESTIMATED. Am I missing something?
  16. The counties that voted Democratic (blue on the Electoral College map) appear to be the hardest hit (red on the the Covid-19 map). Your interpretation may vary.
  17. 2016 Presidential Election map by counties. Covid-19 map by counties.
  18. Something like that. ?
  19. I was waiting for that Biff. The Kaline card I posted - a 1964 Topps Giant - was autographed that very day by Al Kaline himself. That was in January, 1980 - over 40 years ago!
  20. I thought you were much older than that. *ducks* ?
