Re: Politics & Current Events

https://twitter.com/chrislhayes/status/1007437662725296130 Of all the insane [expletive] that has occurred during Trump's tenure, this issue has me the most disgusted and riled up. It's dictatorial level inhumanity. It'll get worse next week. Wait until the GOP releases their immigration bill elimi...

Re: Politics & Current Events

What kind of bizzaro world is it when the Justice department finds their FBI director was at fault in hurting the election chances and that is a good thing for the one who originally benefited?

Lazy media.

Re: soccer soccer soccer

My random prediction is that Lewandowski will lead the WC in goals. be tough in 3 or at most 4 games and as your teams only real threat. They'll get by Senegal to get through the knockouts. Only question is whether they get Belgium or England, they would have a shot to get to the quarters against E...

Re: Politics & Current Events

Yeah, I think the whole "public opinion about the investigation" thing just speaks to how, as with anything, the public generally grows less interested in something when the general idea is "nothing" is happening. They're bored. Americans have the attention of adolescent puppies...

I think Cohen doesn't know as much as people think he does. Grifters gonna grift and not necessarily tell the big boss. Manifort on the other hand, I think he knows a lot. A guy like him does not work for free. If Cohen is the guy who "makes problems go away" for Trump, he knows plenty Co...

Re: 2018 Actual MLB Draft Day(s) Thread

.... So I have to say I'm NOT a big fan of these draft selections and this draft class overall for the Cubs. It seriously lacks in upside, and the chances of landing an impact player from this group is very low. ..... What I mean is that this group has an even smaller chance of landing an impact pl...

Not sure if this was mentioned already in this thread, but the Cubs strongly considered drafting RHP Derek Casey out of HS back in 2014. This is another example of why kids shouldn't turn down big offers to turn pro right away. Derek Casey passed on nearly a million dollars. He decided it would be ...
